Recently, I dumped some Angels on Tom during the Great Purge of 2016. He responded back with what is my first new-to-me cards of 2017.
Tom sent back some beauties, including these nice Fukudome cards for my player collection.
I love me some World Series Cubs and Zobrist is one definitely one of my favorites. Actually, I think the Topps Bunt design was my favorite of 2016 as well. We need more large team logos in the background!
This unused linen postcard is an absolute gem.
a little bit of research I know this postcard must have been produced before 1952, when the price was upped to two cents. Maybe Wrigley Wax, who seems to be a historian on all things Cub, would have an idea of when Wrigley looked like that. My guess would be in the 1930s. No?
Regardless, the postcard is beautiful and will be on display in my man room.
Lastly, we have a 1983 food issue card from Post's Super Sugar Crisp.
ColecoVision (old-school gaming system or an autographed baseball.
Hack Wilson has now been credited with 191 RBIs and the Cubs got lights in 1988. Plus... maybe we should add something about a World Series win in 2016?
Tom, thanks for the cards! My favorites were the postcard and the Super Sugar Crisp Cubs scratch-off. Great stuff!
