All The Cubs Inserts From the 2000s

We're moving into the 21st century and the number of inserts has exploded!

By my count there are 95 Cubs inserts, almost ten per year.  That's over double the number from the '90s.

In the early part of the decade, Sammy Sosa was Topps' go-to Cub.  At the end of the decade, Alfonso Soriano took over that role.  

The decade also has the three inserts that I was missing....and am still missing!  Keep your eyes open for the 2000 Century's Best Insert #3 Lance Johnson, the 22006 2K6 All-Stars #4 Derrek Lee, and the 2006 Walmart Insert #38 Derrek Lee.

Here are the 92 inserts of the 2000s that I do have:
