2 hall of famers played their final games in 1998 - paul molitor and dennis eckersley. in 1999, upper deck tried to fool us by producing a final tribute card of wade boggs, but that proved to be premature. here are some bona fide 1999 final tributes of molly and eck that i have in my collection.
1999 fleer tradition paul molitor
i don't have eck's 1999 fleer tradition card, but i do have his 1999 pacific crown collection card
topps didn't produce cards for either of these guys - not even a checklist or highlight card - but upper deck did them justice with base cards and the 'final tribute' shield.
as for the head-to-head stats, 11 of eckersley's 2401 career strikeouts came from molitor, and 13 of molly's 3319 hits came off of eck. overall, eckersley got molitor out most of the time as would be expected, but molitor won the war - he hit .310 with a 1.024 ops off of eckersley over the course of their fine careers.
