Living Set Craig Kimbrel

The Cubs have a player in the Living Set for the first time since September 30, 2021.  That is the longest playerless span since the set started.

Closer Craig Kimbrel has been really good this year.  He made the All Star team and now he's made the Living Set.  The big question is will he still be with the Cubs by the end of the week?

I like the look of the card. The artwork is very realistic, almost like a photo.

Kimbrel is the 14th Cub to be included and he is also the Cub with the lowest print run.

  1. I think the initial luster of the Living Set has warn off. Case in point: Kimbrel only had a third as many cards produced as Brandon Morrow.
    We probably won't see a rise in production numbers from the Cubs unless Fergie, Billy, Santo or a new hot rookie is given a card.
