my personal tribute to the "team that should have been", the 1969 Cubs; tidbits of my philosophy of life and baseball cards
Wait til Next Year . . . is making a come back.
I am going to mix a bit of the philosophy of my life into this blog as I continue to highlight some of my baseball card collection. (hoping the card collectors of this world welcome me back)
Its been a tough 18 months for me . . . the Chicago Cubs have had it rough as well. This site will be devoted to all those who need to define what "wait til next year" means.

Two Great Cubs - One Card
I was looking through some of my League Leader Cards from my “old” collection and found this gem. The usual superstars appeared quite often; Mays, Aaron, McCovey, Clemente, Rose, Robinson, Yastrzemski etc. I even found a few Cubbies appeared throughout the years. But this 1969 card (Topps # 4) features two Cubs, that’s right Santo and Williams on the same League Leader card, for RBI’s in 1968, tied for 2nd in the league with 98 (behind Coveys’ 105).Was there ever another year that two Cubs appeared on the same League Leader Card ? Help me Cubs fans . . . help me league leader statisticians ?
