Chicago Cubs

Franchise Founded: 1870
Championships: 2
Team Collectibility Rating: 9.0


Overview

Despite their much-publicized title drought, the Chicago Cubs have shown enough flashes of brilliance through their storied history to offer hope to their sizable fan base. As one of professional baseball's original teams, the Cubs have provided baseball fans with some of the sport's most enduring memories, both good and bad.

It seems that every generation of Cubs fan has a foreboding event on which to dwell. In the 1940s, it started with the alleged curse of the billy goat. In 1969, it was a black cat walking in front of the Cubs dugout and the infamous collapse to the Miracle Mets. The home run chase of 1998 was quite the spectacle and captivated the entire country. Unfortunately for Cubs fans, Sammy Sosa fell short to his division rival, Mark McGwire.  And of course, who can forget the Bartman fair catch incident. Suffice it to say that the Cubs have had their fair share of not-so-great moments.

The Chicago Cubs have had a lengthy roster of Hall of Fame players who called Wrigley Field home. From the double-play trio of Joe Tinkers, Johnny Evers and Frank Chance, to the core of the 1969 team, with Billy Williams, Ron Santo, Fergie Jenkins and Ernie Banks, Chicago has had no shortage of star players with sizable collectibility.

In more recent years, players like Ryan Sandberg, Andre Dawson, Kerry Wood and Sammy Sosa have thrilled fans throughout the regular season only to fall short of the ultimate prize, a World Series Championship. The Cubs have also been short-term hosts to high-profile free agents, including Nomar Garciaparra and Alfonso Soriano.

As the franchise looks to build a winning team, they are stockpiled with top prospects and young talent. Names like Starlin Castro, Anthony Rizzo, Kris Bryant, Javier Baez and Kyle Schwarber are just a few of the players the club is hoping to build around. Each of them provide a tremendous wealth of collectible opportunities.

Collectors have plenty of options when it comes to merchandise and collectibles for the Chicago Cub. Using the tabs above, check out the top Cubs' players to collect, top merchandise and jersey options, autograph guide, game tickets and the most watched Chicago Cubs cards and memorabilia on eBay.
