Lots of cards, mostly of Ron Santo. This blog was actually an offshoot of my first blog Six Degrees of Ron Santo in which I would link random players to Santo in six cards or less. As you can imagine, that got boring real quick. Also for no other reason than to amuse myself, I remade every Santo card using the football card format.
This championship reminds us of Santo, Banks, Brickhouse, and all of the former Cubs who never had a chance to see the Cubs go all the way. It reminds us of parents, grandparents, uncles and brothers who lived whole lives rooting for the Cubs without a championship.
Here's to the Cubbies! World Series Champs!
