Mark McGwire Fleer

With the Eagles season ending, we’d like to return to our baseball card of the week feature.  This week we depart from our typical Philly athlete to examine the much debated Mark McGwire.

Without further ado, a card from the days of yore.  A baseball card from a time when the cream was something you found inside your chocolate Tastykake, a time when the word steroid didn’t even register in our vocabulary.

Ladies and gents, 70 home runs in the season of 1998.  Mark McGwire after the jump.

Should he be in the Hall of Fame?  What’s your take.  Here are some thoughts from people around the web.
