Where's Wrigley?

Topps 2018 series one is nearly a Wrigley-free zone.

I paged through the set looking for cards with pictures from games at Wrigley Field.  The easy ones were Cubs cards.  

There are six cards with Cubs players at home.

But other than those, there are very slim Wrigley pickings.


That's it...just two cards.  Starlin is saluting his former teammates on his first at-bat at Wrigley as a visitor on May 4.  Greinke made a start against the Cubs at Wrigley three months later on August 4.

This Ian Happ card is the only one of the 350 that shows the Wrigley ivy, and we don't even get a good look at it.

I guess Topps figured that by doing a 50-card Wrigley Field insert set in 2016, we don't need to see it in many other cards.
