I've reached Box #3 and each box is larger than the previous. I think this one was a 400 count box and its contents were exclusively Cubs, except for a surprise at the end. Wes, the biggest Jay Barker fan I know, certainly likes unloading his junk (Cubs) on me! And I'm a happy recipient!
maybe someday, I'll come up with a Cubs team set want list and get
after it, but until then I'm happy to just randomly accumulate my
I was too young to remember the Cubs
teams from the early 80's, but here we have a half-dozen '84 Topps, nine
cards from the '90 Score set, and another six of '89 Fleer. The Dream
Team Sandberg in the middle is one of my all-time favorite cards of Ryno
and the mustache on Goose is killer.
Joining the samplings of
cards above there were large stacks or Cubs cards from 1980, 1981,
1985, and 1986. It's probably close, but I there's a team set of each
year within the stacks along with a couple of duplicates.
Speaking of cards that were manufactured before I started collecting...
Well, that does it for Box #3, stay tuned though because I've already sneaked a peak at the last box and it's a doozy!
Thanks again, Wes!
