Jack Brickhouse Cubs Card: Clubs

These cards take us through the 1930's and 1940's, when the Cubs won four pennants.

Lon Warneke was a 20 game winner for the 1935 National League champs.

Galen hit .314 for the Cubs in 1935.

The Champs!

Though an injury left him a shadow of the pitcher he was with the Cardinals, Dean was 7-1 with a 1.81 ERA for the '38 Cubs.

His famous "Homer in the Gloamin" on September 28, 1938, helped the Cubs to the 1938 NL crown.

Though he had an off season with the bat in 1938, the Hall of Famer was still an All Star and an anchor at second base.

Best known as the pitcher to give up the Babes "Called Shot," Root's career was finished after 1941.

Jolly Cholly's was the manager of the Cubs last pennant winning team.

Pafko hit .298 and was 4th in MVP voting in 1945.

A fixture at third base for the Cubs for 16 seasons, Hack hit .323 in 1945.

Cavarretta was a north side native who made it big with the Cubs, spending 20 seasons with the Cubs. He was the NL MVP in 1945, hitting a league-leading .355.
