Cards That Never Were: 1971 Topps Great Moments

1971 Topps Great Moments

This is a moment that is etched in the minds of older Cub fans. A black cat walking past Ron Santo who was in the on deck circle at Shea Stadium. On September 9, 1969 the Cubs were in 1st place by 1.5 games ahead of the Mets. The Cubs lost this game and eventually yielded the lead to the Miracle Mets. It would be anothe 15 years before the Cubs would even win a division title and of course it has been 102 years and counting since the Cubs won a World Series.

  1. Excellent work! ...and probably more worthy of recognition than other "moments" from that Topps series, especially those that stretched the word's definition. ("Sal Bando plays every game for two years?" What a moment!)
