I had an even dozen Cubs cards to chase. I did seriously think about buy a couple boxes at Walmart. But I did a little Ebay hunting and found a cheap Cubs base set. That took care of eight of the twelve cards. The four short prints came via Ebay and Sportlots. In the end, by skipping the Walmart purchase I saved money, avoided the frustration of not getting all the Cubs, and wasn't left with a stack of cards I didn't want or need.
Gallery's gimmick it cards that feature original paintings of the players. There were four different artists responsible for Cubs cards, show I show the cards one artist at a time.
Do you have a favorite artist among the four? Here is one from each of the four, from left to right, Cabaleiro, Bergren, Penix, and Graham.
I'm voting for Dan Bergren, the Baez card. His work seems to be the most realistic looking, which is the style I prefer.
