Looking Back On All the Starting Lineup Cubs

Let's wrap up our look at Starting Lineup

  • The brand lasted from 1988 to 2001
  • Like many products from that era, it started out big and then started a gradual shrinking until it disappeared.
  • I've got a total of 47 Cubs cards.  More than half, 26 of them, come from the first four years.  The last ten year yielded just 21 more Cubs cards.
  • 16 different Cubs have cards: George Bell, Damon Berryhill, Jody Davis, Andre Dawson, Shawon Dunston, Leon Durham, Mark Grace, Greg Maddux, Brian McRae, Ryne Sandberg, Sammy Sosa, Rick Sutcliffe, Jerome Walton, Rick Wilkins, Mitch Williams, and Kerry Wood.
  • Ryne Sandberg and Sammy Sosa tied for the most cards, with nine of each.  Those two represent almost a third of all the Cubs cards.

  • My favorite design is the first one.  The red border, red stripes on the top, blue and red Starting Lineup logo, and the red and blue of the Cubs uniforms all combine to make a nice looking card.
