Finishing Up 2010 Turkey Red

My cards from Topps Update are starting to roll into Wrigley Wax World Headquarters!

Up for today are the three Cubs in the Turkey Red insert set.

Turkey Red jumped on the Starlin Castro bandwagon.

They also seem to have a weird man-crush on Rogers Hornsby. This is the second year in a row he's been featured as a Cub in Turkey Red. The weird thing is that he only played 317 of his 2259 career games with the Cubs. I think most fans think of him as a Cardinal. I wonder why Topps doesn't?

We end with Cubs fading third baseman Aramis Ramirez

There were a total of seven Cubs among the 150 of this year's Turkey Red. Of the seven, three were Old Timers (Banks, Sandberg, and Hornsby), one is now an ex-Cub (D-Lee), and three are still with the team.


  1. I think this is the best insert set Topps has put out the last 2 years and the only insert set I've been trying to complete. It'll be interesting to see if the Kimball Champions inserts next year are as good.
