Mark McGwire Collector's Thread

Got this RARE bad boy in the mail today. I know Cards Fan , who is my buddy Karl has one, but besides seeing his i never seen this card anywhere. I got it off ebay with a $199 BIN which is a steal. As far as i know, the first 25 had the 70 inscription added to them. Even the ones without the inscription are hard to come by even though there is a total print run of 70. So in total, there is a 70 print run and the first 25 got the "70HRS" inscription. It goes great with the others.

Here it is.... 2003 Mark Of Greatness /70 with the "70HRS" inscription....


and goes good along with these....

Here's something I forgot about, but came across when I was digging through a box where I'm storing autographed balls (until I have a better place to display them!)

Rawlings Mini Mitt made in 1999 or so. Bought it at Target, but I can't remember how much it was. There were about 6 or so available, and I bought the Mac and a Griffey (I'll post that in the Griffey thread.) It has his name on the thumb, but the pics don't show it.

And with a ball to give some perspective...



It also came with a card that I though I scanned the other day when I was scanning Mac cards, but I can't find it. I'll look again.

A couple I have:

This one was my original "game-used" for McGwire's place in my 500 HR Club collection. It's technically not what most would consider a true GU but it worked for me.
2001 UD SPx Ankiel/McGwire GU base combo


This one came from the collection of member jam92102 who has posted a little here, but he is much more active on TCC.

2001 Absolute Memorabilia Home Opener Souvenirs GU base /400


It is now my key McGwire in the 500 HR Club collection. If anyone needs the dual with Ankiel for their collection let me know.

Just a heads up, I'd stay away from those fleer proof cards from mr.pirateninja

I bought two to see what they were. So far I've gotten one and it was cut with scissors. The printing looks like it was done with a home printer too. I'm not a pro on these, but I do not think these are legit printer proofs from the company itself.

Here's one of my all-time favorites. Can't find em anymore. I've only seen three of the other ones, and only one of them had both bat pieces in tact. Apparently that was a huge issue with these (though I have never seen a Sosa/McGwire with a broken bat - I put that picture there too for comparison)
