2008 Upper Deck Baseball Heroes Relics Mark Mulder 49/50
Mark Alan Mulder was born on August 5, 1977 in South Holland, Illinois. The Cardinals acquired him from the Oakland Athletics on December 18, 2004 in exchange for Dan Haren, Kiko Calero, and Daric Barton. Mark was a solid pitcher during his first year (2005) in St. Louis when he won 16 games and posted a 3.64 ERA while striking out 111 batters. The next three years were plagued by injury and he won only 6 games while losing 10. Mulder retired during the 2008 season due to seemingly insurmountable injuries.
