All-Star Winnings, Part 13

Way back in July 2012, I won a contest at Cards On Cards. The premise was to pick the Cardinals player who would have the biggest impact on the game, determined Sabermetrically. I picked the right player, and got a pile of Cardinals for my trouble. They've been sitting in that same pile, haunting me, for quite some time, so now is the time to show them to you.
Part [ I | II | III | IV | V | VI | VII | VIII | IX | X | XI | XII ]

1976 Topps #478 Lynn McGlothen
1987 Donruss #604 Steve Lake
1988 Donruss #31 Lance Johnson
1990 Topps #533 Tim Jones
You can tell I'm nearing the end, with this random assortment of 1970s to 1990s cards. I admit I don't know who Lynn McGlothen is, but a 1970s card is always a welcome addition. Also, that's right White Sox and Mets fans (and Cubs and Yankees near the end), Lance Johnson was a Cardinal for a bit in 1987. We traded him and Ricky Horton for Jose DeLeon prior to 1988, though.

2001 Topps #50 Mark McGwire
2002 Upper Deck Ovation #119 Mark McGwire
2003 Upper Deck Victory #88 Mark McGwire
2003 Upper Deck Victory - Tier 1 Green #88 Mark McGwire
Here I have more McGwires that didn't fit in the last post. These are all my sole representatives in their sets, like many of the previous McGwires. My collecting really dropped off in 1999 and was almost non-existent in 2000, through late 2010, so cards from that era always feel like they're helping to bridge the gap.
