2019 Update Ryne Sandberg Photo Variation

This year I decided to get the variation cards if they showed a different player.  I wasn't interested in a different shot of the same player.

The update series included a variation card of Ryne Sandberg.  It is #269, which corresponds to the card of Craig Kimbrel.  The odd thing to me is that Sandberg already has a variation card, from series two.

They picked a great shot of Ryno coming rounding third after a home run.  Popeye is pretty excited, too.  I was hoping that the picture came from the 1984 Sandberg game, when he hit two home runs off of Bruce Sutter.

It wasn't that game, though it was from another exciting one.  This is July 12, 1984.  He hit a game-winner that topped the Dodgers 3-2 in ten innings.


  1. That is a most excellent photo of Zimmer and Sandberg. I'll have to put that one on my want list.


  2. Yeah I had to add this card to my collection. Love the joy on Zim's face.
