2018 Series One Inserts - 1983 Cubs

The Cubs netted just 10 of the 350 spots in the series one checklist.  They did much better in the 1983 insert set, with eight of the 100 cards.

Ryne Sandberg was in the 2018 version as well as the original back in 1983.  This gives us the opportunity to compare the two side by side.  I see several differences with the new version... the purple is lighter, the name box is bigger (see the extra space above "RYNE", the CUBS lettering is larger, SECOND is spelled out.

The other seven Cubs in the set are the usual suspects.



  1. Do you think the slight differences are purposeful? I would think with today's technology they would be able to duplicate whatever they wanted down to the most minute detail.

    1. It has to be intentional, but I can't think of a good reason to not make exact duplicates.
