1984 Drakes Cubs

The 1984 Drakes set didn't have too many surprises...

...the cards came with Drake products or was available in a box
...the front had different colors for the two leagues...NL blue border, AL red border
...the backs of the cards were identical to the Topps base set

...Bill Buckner was in the set.  This is the fourth Drakes set and Billy Buck's fourth appearance.

It would also be his final appearance as a Cub, since he was traded to the Red Sox during the 1984 season.

BUT...Big News!!!  Drakes included a second Cub!!!

...and like Buckner, its an ex-Dodger...Ron Cey.  Drakes was finally showing the Cubs a little love.
