In addition to a bunch of Wood, Prior, and Sosa cards, Trey sent a few more, which I consider the best of the lot. All five cards feature Hall of Famers, and include my favorite players:
Topps Tribute 2010 Bruce Sutter, 20/50. Sutter went into the Hall as a Cardinal, but to me he's always a Cub. He came up through the Cubs farm system, won two All Star games in blue, and picked up his only Cy Young as a Cub. Plus, he looks much better as a Cub with a Fu Manchu, than as a Cardinal with the Grizzly Adams look.
Topps Tribute 2010 Fergie Jenkins, 66/75. The card has an action shot of Fergie from 1972 and a bat piece. Fergie was a decent hitter, hitting 13 career homers, including six in 1971 alone. In his case, a bat relic for a pitcher is ok.
Topps Tribute 2010 Billy Williams, 12/25. This is a great looking card of my all-time favorite Cub.
What can I say about this beauty? This Triple Threads card, from 2010, #09/36, has three great Cubs, with Mr. Cub in the center. Totally awesome!
And finally, the cream of the crop:
From Topps T206 2010, a jersey card of Johnny Evers! I've got a piece of a game worn jersey of a world champion Cub! Genuine flannel!
Now that I've got this card, I know which card will be the first authentic T206 cards I'll chase.
Thanks again to Trey for his amazing generosity. I was speechless when I first opened the package on Christmas Eve, and still today, I can't believe the great cards he sent me. Thanks!
