Memorable card: 1998 Topps Hall Bound Mark McGwire

Oh man, this card was the coolest when I pulled it. As I’ve said over (and over) on this blog, I began opening packs in 1998 after a long hiatus. Seeing this card, a die-cut no less, was big time fun. Remember that baseball was a more innocent game. It was during the summer of 1998 that McGwire was busted with a bottle of andro in his locker. At the time, baseball didn’t even care – andro wasn’t a banned substance. Those were the days. Ten (or twelve) years later and McGwire is trying to gain some legitimacy as a hitting coach for the Cardinals.
