1900s - 1970s: 1962 Topps Stamps Dick Ellsworth The 1962 stamps were among the earliest inserts given away by Topps. Ellsworth was 9-20 in 1962 but the Cubs media guide says he led the team in strikeouts and starts. There is no mention of 20 losses.
1980s: 1878 Seven Eleven Chicago #16 Lee Smith We see big Lee Arthur and lots of empty seats.
1990s: 1997 Stadium Club #118 Steve Trachsel Weird random fact...the last two players selected by the Random Number Generator wore #46. Smith had a borderline Hall of Fame career. Trachsel....not so much
2000s: 2001 Victory #342 Bill Mueller This type of card drives me nuts....if you list him as a Cub, them show him as a Cub. If you show him as a Giant, list him as a Giant. No mixing and matching! And no, Mueller did not wear #46.
2010s: 2014 Factory Team Set #12 Welington Castillo Remember when it looked like Castillo would be the Cubs catcher for years to come? That didn't last long!
