464 - Chicago Cubs TC
About This Team
The Chicago Cubs are one of the original National League teams established in 1876. In 1972, the Cubs finished the season in 2nd place in the National League East. In 1973, the Cubs would finish in 5th place.
About This Card
I enjoy the stats on the backs of cards and I enjoy especially the team stats on the back of the team cards. In the case of 1973, the team cards show each team's all-time stat leaders and the records for each of the pennant winning teams. Topps quit printing team cards in 1990 and brought back the team cards in 2001. The team stats are finally appearing again in 2010.
