Marc, author of Remember the Astrodome, dropped a yellow mailer on me the other day. Marc is my favorite blogger to drop Astros cards on and he always seems to send excellent Cubs packages my way. And no, this package was not accompanied by a loud banging sound. Sorry, couldn't resist!
In regards to the alleged cheating scandal: I don't have any proof, but I have to figure every MLB team is trying to gain an advantage whenever and wherever they can. Some are just probably more brazen about it than others. Regardless, this isn't something new, and cheating and sign stealing has been a part of the sport for generations. Either way, I'd much rather read articles about "cheating in baseball" than click-bait articles of where Gerrit Cole is going to sign during the next four months. Last year's onslaught of off-season rumors surrounding Machado and Harper put me in a deep slumber.
Enough rambling. On to the cards!
1991 Fleer. This design gets such a bad rap, but I would bet that 95% of collectors could name the brand and date of this set from twenty feet away. To me, that makes it a winner.
Ever since the Cubs won the World Series I haven't been following the Cubs' prospects as closely.
I'm getting closer to completing my Cubs Topps Fire team set.
Topps Stickers. Very cool.
More stickers! These are from 1991 Panini and are small. I prefer my stickers to be normal card size.
A Jose Quintana insert? There's something I didn't know I needed!
Sammy is on cardboard again?
Horizontal Cubs cards, and some beautiful ones at that!
Thanks for the Cubs cards, Marc. I especially appreciate the ones from 2019 as I haven't purchased much new product this year. A return package is on its way. All the best!
