Right after my last box break, which Jeroen (The Dutch Card Guy) participated in, we worked out a deal that I would send a few extra Yankees to fill out the package for him and get a few Cubs cards sent my wayin return. Like yesterday's post, here are a few of my favorites.
Various rookies. As a Cubs fan, I remember every one of these guys, but I don't really expect anybody else too. None played the equivalent of a full season although a couple played multiple years with the Cubs. Still nice to add o the collection. As my header says, Once a Cub...Always a Cub.
|Robin Jennings, Kevin Orie, Chad Meyers|
|Blaise Ilsley, Brooks Kieschnick|
Also in the package were various inserts, including a jersey card, an autograph and several serial numbered cards. I'm not sure why the Sutcliffe below is amusing. I've seen the card before. He's obviously on the mound at Wrigley (pinstriped uni, ivy in the background). Maybe its the hair? Not the style, it was the 80s afterall. I guess it just seems odd that he doesn't have a hat on?
|Aramis Ramirez Jersey (w/ pinstripe!)|
|Carlos Zambrano (#/250!)|
|Carlos Zambrano (#/599!)|
|Gold Micah Hoffpauir (#/2009!)|
|Cesar Izturis Autograph|
|The Red Baron!|
This Kerry Wood is a card I don't recall seeing before. I've seen other Play Ball cards but for some reason, this one does not ring any bells.
Thank again, Jeroen for the trade!
