2015 Update Cubs...The Extra Base Cards

The base update set has several subsets and Cubs players were in most of them.


Kris Bryant and Anthony Rizzo were in the Home Run Derby.  The red jerseys look pretty silly on top of blue pinstripes.

The same two got All Star Game cards.  Bryant's card shows him during the game.  Rizzo had two at-bats as the starting DH.  I wonder why Topps didn't use a photo from either AB?

Three Cubs are in the Rookie debut subset.  The pictures on the cards are from the player's actual debut date, so kudos to Topps for that.

  1. • The Home Run Derby logos look ridiculous. Can’t believe Topps couldn’t remove the Head & Shoulders and Gillette advertisements.
    • I don’t like that Topps added the RC rookie card logo to EVERY Russell, Bryant and Soler card. I think they should keep the RC logo on the actual rookie card only.
    • Is the Bryant Rookie Debut the first Topps card to feature one of our new video boards? Reminds me of my favorite Cubs card, the 1960 Ernie Banks.
