Over the next five weeks, I plan to take a look at Cubs teams from decades past, starting with the 1960 team, five decades ago, and then move forward to 1970, 1980, 1990, and 2000, one decade a week.
My plan is to take four days and look at a different aspect each day. On day one, I'll have a general overview of the team, plus a look at the scorecard and media guide from the season. On day two, it will be a review of the starting position players. Day three will look at the rest of the bench and on the final day I'll check out the pitching.
The first three decades I'll be limited to just Topps cards. For 1990 and 2000 I'll have all the other brands to pick from, but I haven't decided if I want to use them or keep this strictly a Topps affair.
For today, I'll tease you with the team cards, including a floating heads card from 1980!
1970 - or at least what the 1970 team card should have looked like!
Nobody was doing team cards in 1990 or 2000, so I got nothing to show you!
Tomorrow I'll get started with 1960.
