Darryl Strawberry, 1991 Score The Franchise

Name: Darryl Strawberry, Inmate No. 1476598
Teams: Los Angeles Dodgers, Miami-Dade County Jail
Positions: Outfield, (insert soap-dropping joke here)
Value of card: Three cigarettes, you punk-ass fish
Key 1990 stat: Two misdemeanors
Crime and punishment: Darryl Strawberry has had many well-publicized run-ins with the law. He has faced charges for failing to make child-support payments, being in possession of cocaine and soliciting a police officer posing as a prostitute, among other things. These things are all embarrassing, but his prodigious skills on the diamond usually overshadowed his missteps off the field. This was true until Score decided to run a Strawberry mug shot on a 1991 baseball card in place of the usual action shot of the outfielder in mid-swing. Strawberry was infuriated. "At least they could have got my good side," he said.
