68 Rule-following Relics

As promised yesterday, I've got the 68 rule-following Cubs relic cards.  These 68 are, to the best of my knowledge, the players that have had a relic card issued during a season that they played for the Cubs and the card shows them as a Cub.  Many of the players have more than one card that follows the rule.  I don't need them all; just one will do.

Relics started showing up around 1999, so these players should be the best the Cubs have had over the past 15 years.  I think it covers pretty much any name player you could thing of.  But the list includes some stinkers, too....Todd Hundley--I'm looking at you.

Look over the list and give me a name of a player that you think should be on the list.  Its certainly possible that I've missed a few.

I created two tiles of the card.  The top has the 32 cards that are vertical while the 36 horizontal cards are on the bottom.


  1. Cool list - useful reference.

  2. I love the variety of brands and years. I'm super envious.

  3. Those relics would make a beautiful wallpaper.
