Darryl Strawberry was potentially a Hall of Famer before injuries and substance abuse took a hold of him. But through his age-29 season, Strawberry was one of MLB’s top players, as he batted .263/.359/516 with a 144 OPS+, and 280 home runs. On top of that, he also had 201 stolen bases. Only eight players all-time reached 200+ home runs and stolen bases before their age-30 campaign.

There would be a few seasons that you could base Strawberry’s best card off of. The first would be his 1986 home run derby championship. He was also really good during the regular season with 27 home runs and 28 stolen bases and an OPS+ of 139. His 1987 season would also be a good year as he batted .284/.398/.583, going yard a career high 39 times and stealing 36 bases. The only thing that may keep SDS from trying to get Strawberry’s NIL rights is his off-field controversy.
