Set: 1998 Pinnacle - Home Stats

Card: #63 Mark McGwire

“ What an utterly useless parallel. "I got a great let's put half the stats on the back of the card," said nobody ever....well except one guy at Pinnacle. ” -rmpaq5

“ Another hiccup by the RCOTD generator. Didn't we just have one of these last week?! Anywho, while I enjoy this design, the parallels for this set are maddening. Home Stats; Away Stats; Complete Stats....if you're not paying close attention you'll pull your hair out! ” -mkaz80

“ We had one of these just a little while ago and my same thing sticks, it would have been a great card if they hadn't put the duplicate picture on the back. They had two very good pictures and they they added a duplicate also and it lost points for me. Mark McGwire and Jose Canseco were two of my favorite players when I first started watching baseball, sadly the fall from grace for both of them, some hope remains for McGwire but I think Canseco is hated universally at this point. ” -davidhandberry

“ I may not be a baseball person, but even I have fond memories of his home run battle with Sammy Sosa from that time period. A big topic of discussion at my school. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ We just had 1998 Pinnacle Away stats as Rcotd. Now it's time for Home stats. I like neither of them. ” -Duke

“ Still remember where I was September 8, 1998 at 8:18 p.m. for #62. I thought it was the greatest thing ever that Fox would air a baseball game on a Tuesday night and not just the Saturday game of the week. ” -vanstryland

“ Pretty nice card visually. I want a first name on the front of the card and a Team. The back is OK and I understand this is a home stats subset but I really don't care about stats at home. The back is fine for what it is. I think the concept of a home stats subset is dumb. ” -BSwagger

“ Nice Cardinals card that I don't have. And I like photos of a guy fielding his position because there don't seem to be many. ” -switzr1

“ First Gary DiSarcina away, now Big Mac home. ” -Tylergallo

“ Wow! 2 from the same set inside of 10 days or so. Truly random!! ” -cjjt

“ Not a fan of the design. Although the back is not bad. ” -parsley24
