Thankfully, no Cubs were among the five added rookies. Kris Bryant and Addison Russell were already in the set and their cards were going for high prices. Bryant's base cards was going for $20 and it was taking $4-5 to get Russell's.
I was able to get a complete Cubs set from Brentandbecca for a more reasonable price, though it was higher that what I was used to. I told Brent it was a good thing that Kyle Schwarber wasn't included in the set or I would have had to take out a loan. The price for the Cubs success is higher prices...I'm OK with that!
After having just three cards in the past three Chrome sets, the Cubs this year had eight players.
Two of the eight made no sense...
...Javier Baez and Tommy La Stella. Baez has been in AAA all year. La Stella has been hurt, playing in just two games.
The other six are all contributors to the Cubs success this year.
