Fun facts about former Cubs players from retro Topps baseball cards


I used to collect baseball cards and sort them while I watched games. I still do!

Well, at least for the guys whose career stats take up the whole back of the card.

Now that I have plenty of time to pull out the binders and look at cards, I decided to compile all of my favorite Topps Cubs “back of the card” factoids from my collection. I definitely learned a few things. I’m sure you will too.
