The 100 Best Finds in a 30-Dollar Lot: #73

1984 Donruss #68 Darryl Strawberry

This might be one of my favorite cards to come out of this lot. I don't have very much '84 Donruss to speak of, and I sure didn't have this Strawberry rookie. For a base card from the 1980s, this baby has held its value fairly well in recent years. While I'm sure the going price is nowhere near where it was at the time of release, recently completed auctions for this card in an ungraded state have averaged around $4.00. Not too shabby. This one is off-center about 65/35, but I still like it.

For anyone who's interested, yes, the card did come in the ROOKIE CARD top loader, and yes, I am keeping it in there.
