T206 Cubs: Two More

Here is a look at two more Cubs from the T206 set.

Carl Lundgren pitched for the Cubs from 1902-1909. He had an unusual nickname, The Human Icicle, because he was especially good in cold weather. His best season was 1907, when he was 18-7. But after that, he fell to 6-9 the next season, and pitched in only two games in 1909. He later coached at two Big Ten schools, Michigan and Illinois.

Pat Moran was with the Cubs from 1906 - 1909, mostly as a backup catcher. He would go on to manage the Phillies and Reds for 9 seasons. His best was in Cincinnati in 1919, when his Reds beat the White Sox in the World Series. That may need an asterisk, since that was the Black Sox series.

  1. So I'm reading this the day before the Cub's 2016 home opener. We need Carl Lundgren!
