Do you ever see a card that we were not planning on picking up, but then it just kind of ends up in your mailbox? I saw a few of the McGwire cards out of Triple Threads late this summer when Topps released the product, but was not really planning on spending much time or money chasing down a copy of a Big Mac since almost all of his cards in the set feature the slugging first baseman in an Oakland uniform. Well, then I saw this card on a Facebook auction page.
There were some people interested in the card, but most of the bidding was hanging out around $10. Most of the copies of this card were selling for at least twice that amount on Ebay. Throw in the fact that the person selling the card decided to end the auction in the middle of the day and I decided to take a run at this card. I ended up snagging the card and found this gem in my mailbox yesterday afternoon.
