One modern Cub that was missing from my relic collection was Greg Maddux. I needed to add the future Hall of Famer, and I found a card that I really liked and was able to pick it up for a nice price. So now I've got Maddux added to my collection.....sort of.
Here's the card I got
It a nice looking Masterpieces card from 2008. There is a picture of Greg Maddux in a Cubs uniform and the jersey piece has a blue pinstripe. It would be the perfect card except for this:
He's listed as a Padre. The Cubs traded Maddux to the Dodgers at the trading deadline in 2006. Maddux signed with the Padres after the season for 2007, which is why they've got him as a Padre.
So that leaves me conflicted. It's a Cubs picture and Cubs jersey....it that good enough for this Cubs collector, or does the Padres listing spoil it?
