I've been going back and forth for a while whether to work on putting together Goudey Cubs sets. I wasn't too familiar with the product until I read some of the other blogs talking about it. Well, I finally gave in and said, what the heck...go for it.
With only three years of releases, this wasn't too tough to complete. I started with the 2009 cards. Getting the base set was easy, there were plenty of those available.
Here are the seven regular print cards from the base set:
There were two short print cards of Cubs greats, Ryne Sandberg and Ron Santo.
Two Cubs were a part of the Sports Royalty subset, Ernie Banks and Ryne Sandberg.
And finally, there were four Cubs in the Heads Up subset, Ernie Banks, Derrek Lee, Alfonso Soriano, and Derrek Lee.
That's a total of 15 Cubs cards from 2009. It took a little luck and a lot of Buy it Now, but I'm glad I put the set together. I'll show you 2007 and 2008 in the next week or so.
