My Favorite 150 Items in My Collection-#149 1998 AUthentic Images Mark McGwire 62nd Homerun Commemorative Card
Why I Like It: Because it's the only reminder in my collection of that magical 1998 summer with McGwire and Sosa. I know it's one of those overproduced Shop At Home/QVC collectibles, but it was a gift from my aunt and it takes me back to how special that baseball season was. Had I kept my commemorative SLU's, I'm sure that would've been a greater representative, but I didn't, and I still have this and I just look it at smile, regardless of what ended up being a totally steroid induced era. At the time I was a high school freshman just in awe of what was happening. Good times indeed.
