10: 2022 Topps Tier One Talent Mark McGwire Auto /75

There’s no story behind the 2022 Topps Tier One Talent Mark McGwire. But this is a special card for several reasons. First, we have an on-card auto. Secondly, the print run is only 75, making this an extremely rare and valuable card. There are affordable ones floating around on the Internet, but that could change at any moment.

9: 1999 Topps Chrome® #220 Mark McGwire

In an ode to the electric summer of ’98, when McGwire and Sammy Sosa owned the long ball, authoring baseball’s most entertaining home run race, Topps dropped its 1999 Topps Chrome product and gave each of McGwire’s 70 home runs its own card variation. Picture this – 70 cards for 70 legendary homers! Imagine trying to chase every one of them down. The most sought-after cards capture McGwire tying and breaking Roger Maris’ single-season record for dingers (#61 and #62). Man! What a summer.
