It was not a good week at all for the Cubs.
On August 25, the Cubs lost to the Reds at Wrigley Field and their lead over the Mets was down to five games. That was a three game loss over the past week. By Wednesday of that week the lead shrunk to just 2½ games.
Like Fergie, Hands was also a 20 game winner in 1969.
Jewel used a style for this picture that was later used by Donruss in 1981... out of focus pictures.
