Finally Gave In

I can't speak for other Cubs fans, but I was really disappointed when the Cubs passed over Ryno to be the Manager of the Cubs. How great would it be to see him managing the team he had played so many years for. He did fantastic as a Minor League manager.

I don't think it was a conscious decision, but for some reason I kept passing on picking up his 2014 Topps Heritage card. I don't have anything against the Phillies. I have plenty of cards from when he played for that very short time as a player. But I guess it wasn't real. I always saw him as a Cub. Maybe I just couldn't see myself having a current card of Sandberg in a different uniform.

I finally gave in. I picked up this card and I love it. It's a great looking card and it reminds me that his career is still going strong. I want him to do well as a manager (as long as they aren't playing the Cubs).

  1. I picked this one up back when 2014 Heritage first came out. Like you, I did it begrudgingly, but it is a great-looking card. I hope it's not Ryno's last as a manager.
