Card of the Day: 1993 Donruss Long Ball Leaders #LL11 Darryl Strawberry

I dug this out of one of my 5,000 count boxes the other day while I was scanning a few more Strawberry cards from my collection. I think I got this from the freebies Stats on the Back was giving away.

I'd never heard of this little 18 card set until I looked it up today. says the cards were "randomly inserted in 26-card magazine distributor packs". I don't even know what that means, really.

The back shows us a nice aerial shot of Dodger Stadium, which oddly is not the park where he hit the 460 ft. home run on which this card is based. Yeah, it would look funny to have Candlestick park on the back of a Dodger's Darryl Strawberry card, but the Dodger Stadium shot doesn't really make sense to me on this one. Hmm.. and why does it show him singling to right instead of long-balling?
