I've got 20,920 Cubs cards from 316 different brands listed on a spreadsheet. A random number generator picked five cards, one each from the past several decades.
1900s - 1970s: 1969 Topps Stamp Ron Santo Starting out strong today with a stamp of the Cubs' captain.
1980s: 1981 Topps #533 Jesus Figueroa He never played for the 1981 Cubs. After hitting .253 in 115 games as a rookie in 1980, Figueroa was traded to the Giants over the winter. He never played in another big league game.
1990s: 1992 Ballstreet Journal Ryne Sandberg This is one of two cards of Ryno in the set.2000s: 2000 Fleer #96 Jon Leiber I never noticed how awful Leiber's signature is. That it terrible!
2010s: 2013 Topps Making Their Mark #17 Anthony Rizzo How did Rizzo make his mark on June 30, 2012? In his fourth game as a Cub, he hit a two-run homer that led the Cubs to a 3-2 win over the Astros.
Lieber's signature is much better on Topps cards for some reason.ReplyDelete
