I Caved: Two More Castro Cards

Here are the last two (I think!) insert cards that I said I wasn't going to buy but did, anyway.

This card has Starlin Castro with a throwback Cubs patch. The patch is the design that I grew up with. It was on the front of a Cubs uniform from 1957 - 1978. The difference between the patch and the current design is minimal. The blue circle is fatter today and the "UBS" is a bit thicker, too. Otherwise, its pretty much the same thing.

This is the fake leather nameplate for Starlin Castro. Topps really seems to have hitched their Cubs wagon to Castro. He is the only Cub featured in several insert sets: Kimball, Throwback Patch, Leather Nameplate, Diamond Sparkle, and Toppstown.
