Autographs & Game-Used

A Piece of History

Although each A Piece of History bat card is not serial-numbered, Upper Deck stated that only 350 copies of each were produced. Shortly before this product's release, Mark McGwire publicly stated his disapproval with Upper Deck cutting up one of his bats for this set. It would be years before another McGwire game-used card would be produced.
