Hunting for Some Jewels

I've already shown my recent Jewel pickups from 1969 and 1984.  These weren't the only sets issued by the grocery chain.  They also offered pictures in 1973 and 1977.

Both the '73 and '77 sets featured 16 Cubs.  Right now I've got 14 of the 16 in each.  I've exhausted all of my usual haunts tracking them down.  The missing four are nowhere to be found.

So, if you see any Jewel pictures of the following, let me know:

1973 Randy Hundley
1973 Ron Santo
1977 Jerry Morales
1977 Bruce Sutter

Thanks for keeping an eye out.

For now I have to settle for virtual copies, compliments of the Trading Card Database




  1. Those are certainly nicer than the 1969 portrait of Rich Nye's unibrow that lacks any Cubbiness whatsoever.

    Best of luck on tracking down the elusive final four.

  2. Becket has a couple of sellers with the Randy Hundley from 1973. No luck on the other ones.

  3. I was going to bring up the Hundley on Beckett, but Michael beat me to it.
