1900s - 1970s: 1978 SSPC #250 Steve Ontiveros I always thought that Steve Ontiveros looked like he wanted to tie a yellow ribbon round the old oak tree.
1980s: 1988 Fleer Glossy #428 Paul Noce He was included in Fleer's 1988 set because played in 70 games for the Cubs in 1987. But he didn't make the team coming out of spring training in 1988 and in July was traded to the Expos. He didn't surface in the majors until a one game stint with the 1990 Reds, his final MLB appearance.
1990s: 1997 Team Issued #13 Turk Wendell The Cubs gave away 10,000 sets of these cards on August 7. They beat the Giants that day 6-3 in front of 24,510 fans. Wendell did not pitch in the game. If he had, it would have been his last appearance as a Cub. He was traded to the Mets on August 8.
2000s: 2008 Bowman #122 Aramis Ramirez Isn't it cute the way Aramis makes the little circle for the dots in the i's of his name? It looks like that must be a signature he used early in his career...
2010s: 2012 Topps #114 Matt Garza The picture on the card is from June 27, 2011.
