5 years old, wow that's impressive! I've tried to get my son who is now 6 into sports but toys, hotwheels, and riding bikes are his interests at the moment. I'm still working on him!
Yup I did the same thing as you... collected one of each of his cards stopped a long time ago at around 1500 but might pick it up again someday. Somewhere in my storage have a videotape of his at bats. I did sell about 100 or so of his rare cards on ebay that brought in about 5k to pay for a Disneyland trip and other bills when the mcgwire card market was hot back in '98. I somewhat regret that now, but maybe I'll be able to get some of them back. I also have a ton of pictures of him back in the Oakland days. I didn't get to the ballpark as much as I would of liked since my Dad didn't have any interest in the game or taking me to a ballgame and I didn't have much funds to go, but I went when I could. I was able to see him hit a grand slam live which I will never forget.
