Talking Guess the unbreakable record contest! $20 prize <--wow

Contest: Be the first to guess the record and win.

Prize: Any card for $20 or less in my COMC account. I will have COMC ship it directly to you at my cost.

Disclaimer*: You cannot be on my ignore list. If you are, you suck.

I was reading ScooterD's cool thread: Feats we will never see again... and I was going to post this there, but that would kinda highjack his thread.

So, I actually agree that 511 wins will never be caught and that leading in both wins and saves in the same year will not be done again.

I do think the hit's record will be broken - if not by Jeter, then by someone else some day.

I think someone could hit .400 again. I think someone could catch DiMaggio's hit record and Ripken's consecutive games.

However, there is a homerun record that I believe will never be beaten. This record was accomplished by a famous St Louis slugger in the late 90's.

I need the player's name, date he started the record and date he completed it, and I also need the record.

First person* to answer those questions wins a $20 card from me.

EDIT:

And we have a winner:

Wow, I thought it might take a moment at least. Damn.

Yeah, 3 grand slams in an inning or even 2 grand slams and another homer... not seeing it. haha

Ok, pick a card. Any card $20 or less from here:

April 1996 - October 1999

Most HRs in 4 consecutive seasons with 245 - Mark McGwire

Tatis was the first thing I thought of but it was already taken. I remember that game, it was crazy.

My out of left field guess was:

Mark McGwire, most home runs by a right handed batter in a single season with 70. First one hit on 03-31-1998 last two hit on 09-27-1998.

Wish I saw this earlier, I've been eyeing a couple cards on your comc and knew that one, would have had to look up the date though.
