The complete 30 team season set with 1233 batter and pitcher cards printed on HQ cardstock
Featuring: Who are these Marlins from Florida? Out of nowhere in 1997. They disappear. Back in business in 2003. Soon to disappear again. You’d think it was Loch Ness. One thing happened when they disbanded. They formed the cornerstone of the next great Tigers teams culminating in 2006 with an AL pennant as Pudge and Miggy moved on in the house cleaning right after the season. The most intense race was the NL Central with the Cubs and Astros going down to the last weekend for the final playoff spot. The Cubbies moved on but missed the promised land in an exciting 7 game series loss to the Marlins in the NLCS. That was the Series that propelled the 21 year old Miguel Cabrera to the national spotlight with a 3 run homer in Game 7 off Kerry Wood to help the Fish win. And then they beat the Yankees to win it all.
