Junior Junkie's Generosity, Part IX


Today I've got even more McGwires, including a good chunk of an all-McGwire set.

There are 30 cards in Upper Deck's Chase For 62 set. I got 2 of them in a prize package 2 years ago, but I believe this was a boxed set, so I would expect most people would either want all 30 or none of them, and most of the sets are still together. But, I now have 17 of the 30, so we'll see how it goes.

1998 Collector's Choice #220 Mark McGwire
1998 Topps #325 Mark McGwire
1998 Topps #478 Mark McGwire (x2)
1998 Metal Universe #110 Mark McGwire
1998 Fleer Sports Illustrated Then and Now #113 Mark McGwire
1999 Topps HD #70 Mark McGwire
1999 Upper Deck Victory #429 Mark McGwire
Those last 2 cards - the 1999s - are both from sets I didn't previously have in my collection. My collecting started waning in 1999, so it's fun to see "new" sets from around that time. Sometimes I still get that "new set" rush and want to collect the whole thing, and Topps HD might become one of those.


  1. That was almost a full set when I got it. I ended up keeping two cards from it, one featuring a Griffey cameo (duh) and another showing a wild scramble on some outfield tarp of fans trying to get one of Mac's home run balls. Had it been complete I wouldn;t have broken it up, but there were enough cards missing that I was like, "meh."

    1. Ah, cameos could explain a few broken up sets I suppose. That, and not everyone is as much of a completist as I tend to become.
