Steve Finley, 1991 Upper Deck #330

I'm sure you've heard today's controversial news by now. Steve Finley was not elected to the Hall of Fame. In fact, he garnered just four votes, and will not even be eligible for future ballots.

Oh, and Roger Clemens, Barry Bonds, Mike Piazza, Jeff Bagwell, Tim Raines, Craig Biggio, Edgar Martinez, Alan Trammell, and Mark McGwire were also left out in the cold. For the first time since 1996, the Baseball Writers' Association of America failed to elect a single player. But they succeeded in commanding a lot of attention for themselves and ensuring the future irrelevance of the Baseball Hall of Fame. It's probably just as well. It's a pain in the ass to get to Cooperstown anyway.
