Mark McGwire “61” Bullseye Window  Panel from Stadium Club

Mark McGwire “61” Bullseye Window Panel from Stadium Club

The Great Home Run Chase of ’98 reached its crescendo in the last month of the season, with Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa see-sawing in the lead. With Big Mac having reached the very exclusive 60-home run club on September 5th in Cincinnati, the stage was set for the drama of a baseball lifetime – McGwire and Sosa facing off against each other, mano a mano, in a series between the Cards and the Cubs. The opener was on the night of September 7, before a full house at Busch made electric by the popping of endless camera flashbulbs. McGwire didn’t waste any time before delivering. In the first inning, he stepped in against right-hander Mike Morgan and blasted #61, tying Roger Maris’ 37-year record. It was no ordinary blast, either. McGwire blistered the ball so hard that it kept going and going…until it finally ended its flight by smashing against the unbreakable floor-to-ceiling glass window of the Stadium Club on the second tier of the left-centerfield grandstand – a gum-swallowing blast estimated at around 420 feet. We can only imagine what the diners seated at the restaurant table behind the glass were thinking as they watched the flying object get ever closer. It ricocheted off the glass and into a thicket of arms and legs in the crowd below, but the spot of its landing – marked by the “bullseye” – became a Busch hotspot. The full window panel with sticker has concentric red and white circles with the historic number in the core. In EX condition, and a bullseye indeed for any Cardinal or Big Mac gallery.
