One thought on “1997 Cardinals”
The McGwire and Eckersley game used jersey photos shown here are from Labor Day of ’97. You can tell this not only because they feature the MDA sleeve patch, but that was also the only time that season numbers appeared on the front of the jersey. I’m not exactly sure why that was the case, but it’s a nice trivia nugget nevertheless.
