Happy Labor Day

School starts tomorrow and its been a busy weekend with little time for baseball cards. All I've got for today is this card of the Cubs interim skipper Mike Quade, which came from the 55 card premium team set that Topps put out in 2008.

Is the Cubs recent success due to the the manager honeymoon phenomena (see Orioles and Buck Showalter) or is Quade the reason? Where does PCL manager of the year Ryne Sandberg fit into the equation? It will be interesting to see how this all plays out.

Jim Hendry has some work to do. The rest of you can enjoy your day off!!


  1. Just love the 2008 Topps design, also great spring training shot and you have to love a card that say "Third Base Coach"

  2. So far I do like Quade. Wouldn't mind Sandberg. Just want a better year than this one. Oy!
