Let's take a stroll through some of the Cubs goodness he sent my way.922nd different Ryne Sandberg and 86th Cubs card of Brooks Kieschnick. Nice way to start!
Personally, I think we witnessed Panini's best rebooted Donruss design in 2018.
Cubs rookie mojo!
Rizzo gonna Rizzo.
New Kris Bryant cards for the collection.
A few years ago much was made of Carl Edwards' slight frame, 6'3" and only 170 pounds, and how the Cubs were trying to get him to add weight.
Late 1980's Donruss!
Pitchers who rake.
Mike Morgan's career spanned four different decades and he pitched for twelve different teams. He earned an All-Star appearance in 1991 with the Dodgers, but arguably his best year was with the 1992 Cubs.
numbers: 2.55 ERA, 16-8 W-L, 240 innings and only 14 homers given up, 1.17 WHIP. Mike Morgan put up those stellar numbers with a K/9 of only 4.6. The MLB average for K/9 in 2018 was 8.5. Wow, the game has changed.
DLee and Matt Stairs were two of my favorites from the previous decade.
I believe this one is a business card and/or advertising piece from Gypsy Oak, who is known for his baseball related artwork.
Oooooooh! Super-duper black parallel refractor mojo!
Vintage. Sweet, Vintage.
The package finishes up with a couple of early 90s autos of Mike Bielecki and Shawon Dunston, Sr.
Bielecki and Dunston, were part of the magical 1989 Cubs team, which is my second favorite Cubs team of all time. You'd be correct if you guessed the 2016 team as the club at the top of the list.
Wes, thank you for the remarkable package! It's been a pleasure, my friend!
