It's hard as a Cardinals fan to collect Cubs cards. I still have nice Cubs cards. Further, the Cubs cards we are dealing with this week are from the 1980s. What baseball loving kid in the 1980s did not spend a percentage of their summer break watching the Cubs games on WGN? I did all time. I can probably name most of their starters anytime after the mid 1980s through the mid 1990s.
A little background on tonight's card set....
This is the Thorn Apple Valley Cubs team set. It was a stadium giveaway during the 1983 season. While the 83 season was not a great one for the Cubs, the set features rookie cards of Ryno and Joe Carter. There are also a lot of good veterans in this set, many of whom were contributors on the 1984 Cubs team, which was a really good team.
1980s Cubs also means there is music. Enjoy the cards, commentary free.
