Five Random Cubs Cards

I've got 14,691 Cubs cards from 120 different brands listed on a spreadsheet. A random number generator picked five cards, one each from the past several decades.

1900s - 1970s: 1969 Milton Bradley Fergie Jenkins We start with an ugly, black and white, logos removed Milton Bradley card.  There isn't much good to say about these.

1980s: 1984 Team Issued Dennis Eckersley The Cubs gave these cards away on August 8, 1984.  It was a good day as they finished a four game sweep of the second place Mets and extended their division lead to 4½ games.

1990s: 1991 Donruss Traded #22 Mike Harkey This is card #22 in the set.  It doesn't happen very often where you  get the card number on the front of the card.

2000s: 2002 Topps #324 Nic Jackson Jackson was a 3rd round pick of the Cubs in 2000.  By 2003 he made it to AAA.  Injuries derailed his career as he played in just 32 games from 2004 - 2006.  He was recently hired by the Cubs as a scout.

2010s: 2011 Topps Manufactured Glove Leather Black #RS Ryne Sandberg  This comes from the days when I chased just about everything from the Topps set including the manurelics.  I don't feel like I've missed anything now that I've stopped.


  1. I'd want to get that Fergie simply because Canadian.. lol

  2. The Milton Bradley's are for the collector who has everything. You have to get it because it's "vintage". I have the Santo.
