Chicago Cubs Greats Of The Game – Ryne Sandberg
Finally, #23 is home. Strictly because I was always looking for a better deal, this card escaped me for months. I am happy to announce that it is now part of my collection at last.
No player since Ernie Banks defines the Chicago Cubs team the way that Ryne Sandberg does. The loyalty that the fans had to Ryno during his playing days and well after is remarkable and well deserved.
Although Ryno did not have the pleasure of playing on too many winning teams with the Cubs, his effort on a nightly basis is what made him a fan favorite in the ‘Windy City’. A superb defender with a knack for delivering incredible offense, Ryno was the glue for the Chicago Cubs franchise for 16 terrific seasons.
A classy player. A Chicago favorite. A Hall of Famer.
