I can wrap up the 2022 flagship set now that I have Update in hand. I'll have the base set recap today, the inserts on tomorrow, and I'll put them all together on Thursday.
The Cubs netted a total of 32 base cards. Its up by one over last year, but a much smaller number compared to the five or six year before that. Of course the Cubs win total was also much a much smaller number compared the the glory days of the late 2010s.
Among the 32 cards, there are...
- 25 vertical layout
- only 7 with a horizontal layout... good for me because I prefer the verticals
- 1 team card
- 1 combo / checklist card
- 1 Rookie cards
- 0 League Leaders
- 30 different players, including 2 HOF photo variations
- 12 of the 28 modern players are on the Cubs 40 man roster today
- 16 no longer on the roster
- 3 players that never played an inning for the 2022 Cubs.
- 21 pictures taken at Wrigley Field
- 12 pictures on the road
- 5 pictures of the nasty City Connect uniforms
