Those pics are absolutely awesome, until I saw Joe Maddon's ugly mug.

I hate that fucker.

Default Harry Caray

As for Harry Caray, I am partial to the 1988 Peoria Chiefs issue that actually has his name on it. Plus, on the reverse it mentions his Holy Cow and his love for Budweiser.

Wow, who would have ever thought that a man could put together a list of 100 greatest Cubs? I thought you'd go dry after Santo.

Seriously though, great idea and a super nice collection.

I was in on the bidding for a 1/1 Topps Dynasty Epstein, but it got a little high for me. I'll probably pick up something one day.

Honestly, I started working on this years ago for that very reason. I had heard names like Bill Dahlen and Joe Tinker and Kiki Cuyler but I didn't know much about them. So I started reading about all these Cubs of yore and collecting their cards.

I guess that explains the inclusion of Ray Burris on this list. Im a Cubs fan, and I did a double take when I saw that. 😬⚾️

Only 36 men started more games for the Cubs than Ray Burris. If that's not greatness...
