#3 Mark McGwire Record Breaker
This is the error version of the card, due to that little white triangle near McGwire's left foot. Topps issued a corrected version where this was filled in red.
Why this card is awesome: Because it's one of the few cards from this set where the Topps logo doesn't appear close to one of the corners.
Cool stat: McGwire's 1987 ranks 4th all-time for most homers by a player in his first 3 years. Over on the PI, seasons are not discounted even if the player didn't quality as a rookie. (In other words, it counts 1987 as McGwire's second year even though he had just 53 at-bats in 1986.)
