It was a pretty impressive collaboration between Topps and the Cubs to produce the set. Past partnerships produced single card giveaways, so jumping from 10 cards over 10 games to 82 cards over four games is huge.
I'm curious as to whether they will try something like this again next season. Personally, I'd like to see them hold off for a few years. With the limited number of photos Topps seems to use, I'm afraid another set next year would look too much like this year's.
I'm also wondering if other teams will do something similar next season.
The 82 card set included a total of 46 different players (including the three future stars on one card). Only five of the 46 were on the Cubs roster in 2013, so the set was mostly players from the past. Ernie Banks led the way with six cards, while Jeff Samardzija and Starlin Castro had the most cards among the current team, with four each.
The tile I created shows all 82 cards in alphabetical order by player name, with the muli-card players arranged by card number. Below the tile is a list of all the players in the same order as the tile.
