The complete 30 team season set with 1226 batter and pitcher cards printed on HQ cardstock
Featuring: Who said Money Ball didn’t work? Billy Bean’s Athletics won 103 games to tie the Yankees for the most wins in the AL. What was the difference in payroll you might ask? Try $85,000,000 and that’s BEFORE A-Rod joined NY. Both clubs were unceremoniously dumped in the ALDS. It was Gene Autry’s Angels who prevailed to win it all even though he himself was now an angel. The Angels beat Barry’s Giants in the Series. Bonds has 2 cards in this set, one with his IBB built in per normal and one without the IBB so you can IBB him all you want. The card changes dramatically without the extra walks built in and show the true fearsomeness he instilled in the brains of the opposition. It was the 2nd of 4 straight MVP’s at the tail end of his career, adding to the 3 he won when he was much younger … and much different.
