Most of the time in sports, new expansion teams are known to struggle out of the gate.

But winning it all in just their 5th season is almost unheard of. Everything that goes into something like that is astonishing on its own. However, thanks to greed and apathy, the team was disassembled without haste. What happened after that is even more shocking. This is one of the weirdest stories you'll ever hear. This is the story of the 1997 Miami Marlins.

This set called the “Pinnacle Home Run Club” set,contains 48 cards.

It came housed in a black,hinged box with a certificate of authenticity stating there were 200,000 sets made (very limited). All the cards are created using the dufex process and they seem to have a metallic feel to them. What I love about this set is it’s loaded with the stars of the ‘90’s,all pretty big hitters. It features one of the first cards with Barry Bonds as a Giant. And like a lot of boxed sets from this time,not worth a whole lot. And by now,you probably know,I couldn’t care less. #pinnacle #homerun #baseballcards #dufex #barrybonds #sanfranciscogiants #markmcgwire #oaklandathletics #josecanseco #texasrangers #kengriffeyjr #seattlemariners #frankthomas #chicagowhitesox #mikepiazza #losangelesdodgers #dannytartabull #newyorkyankees #bobbybonilla #newyorkmets #bojackson #calripken #baltimoreorioles

The second highest-paid outfielder is Bobby Bonilla. 33 Reasons It Ain't Easy Being A Mets Fan.

Behold, the first Mets team that I truly remember. What a time to be alive as a Met fan back in 1993.

I’m sure Bobby Bo was convinced he could be the type of player Mets fans would be talking about for decades….and he is (just not for the reasons he would’ve thought). Despite all their failures in 1993, I always look back fondly at this overpriced 103 loss team. #yagottabelieve #bobbybonilla #bobbybonillastillgettingpaid #eddiemurrayhof #bretsaberhagen #willierandolph #1993mets #builttofail #1992topps #baseballcards #thehobby #lfgm🍎

24 years ago today - October 26, 1997:

Edgar Renteria’s two-out single in the bottom of the 11th inning scored Craig Counsell with the winning run as Florida beat Cleveland, 3-2, in Game 7 of the World Series as the five-year-old Marlins became the fastest expansion team to win a championship.
The Indians, seeking their first title since 1948, jumped ahead on a two-run single by Tony Fernandez in the third inning.
Florida got a run back in the seventh when Bobby Bonilla led off with a home run and they tied it in the ninth when Moises Alou led off with a single and later scored on a sacrifice fly by Counsell, forcing extra innings.
With one out in the 11th, Counsell reached on an error by Fernandez, setting the stage for Renteria’s heroics.
“I guess every little boy imagines this might happen at one time,” said first-year Marlins manager Jim Leyland.  “It’s a total fantasy for me.  I was a little concerned. We haven’t given up all year - tonight wasn’t the time to give up.  When we walked into the clubhouse tonight, we knew we were going to be world champions.”
Florida pitcher Livan Hernandez, who won Games 1 and 5, became just the second rookie to win World Series Most Valuable Player honors, joining Larry Sherry of the 1959 Dodgers.
The Marlins and Indians alternated wins for all seven games and it was the third time in history that a Game 7 went into extra innings.
The game was played in four hours and 10 minutes in front of 67,204 at Pro Player Stadium.

The late 80’s early 90’s Pittsburgh Pirates team had some talent to say the least.

Check out some of the names on the back of this team leaders card. Andy Van Slyke, Doug Drabek, Rick Reuschel, Bobby Bonilla, and some dude named Barry Bonds. If it wasn’t for the budding dynasty down in Atlanta maybe, just maybe these Pirates teams would of won a World Series or two back in the early 90’s.

I just wanted to thank everyone for all the love today!

I hope I can continue to bring you all some strange ass art for a long time!

This journey started with a card featuring the legendary BOBBY BONILLA, so I wanted to bring you a new Bobby Bo card. Now that the baseball season is coming to a close I thought this was the perfect time to share it with you all! I am going to be making a really cool 1 of 1 card with this design real soon & I can’t wait to share it with you all!

This card is based on a 1960 Topps Baseball Card Design.

Bobby Bonilla has gone down in baseball history as a meme.

That's not really fair...because he was really good at baseball.

42 years ago, Kent Tekulve locked down the Pirates’ East Division title. hitbypitchdesigns.com

Bobby Bonilla. 1993 Upper Deck “The Collector’s Choice”.

Bonilla would bounce back in a big way for the New York Mets during the 1993 season. Over 139 games, “Bobby Bo” would slash 265/.352/.522/.874/133+ at the plate while accumulating 133 base knocks, 34 ding dongs, 21 doubles, 3 triples, 87 RBI, 81 runs, 72 walks and a 3.2 WAR. Bonilla would be selected to the NL All-Star team as a reserve, replacing former teammate Barry Bonds in the lineup and going 1-for-1 in the Midsummer Classic. Unfortunately for the Metropolitans, they would conclude 1993 with a 59-103 record, good for last in the NL East.

☀️ Bobby Bonilla ☀️
1992 Score Pinnacle. Shades subset.

This is the debut of Bonilla with the Mets, after signing his infamous contract. In 128 games, he'd hit 249 with 19 HRs and 70 RBIs. He would miss being an All-Star, after making the team, the previous 4 years.
