2016 1 oz. American Silver Eagle graded NGC GEM BU with MLB Chicago Cubs Label.
Celebrate Wrigley Field and the Chicago Cubs with this 2016 American Silver Eagle with a special edition NGC label bearing the famous logo of Chicago’s home team!
The Chicago Cubs have everything going for them – a beautiful field, passionate fans, a huge city, and a long, colorful history with a lot of famous players. The only thing they don’t have going for them is – unfortunately - winning seasons. No team would be more deserving of a few more winning seasons and World Series pennants.
Despite appearing in ten World Series contests in the first half of the 20th century, they only won two of those contests – both against the Detroit Tigers, in 1907 and 1908. In fact, they have had dozens of winning seasons since last appearing in the World Series in 1945, but they tend to fall short of the mark as a team and have only managed two division championships since then.
The Cubs have had no shortage of famous players call their ivy walled stadium home. Tinker, Evers, and Chance – the corners of the teens, Cap Anson, Dizzy Dean, Andre Dawson (the Hawk, who happens to be a coin collector), Greg Maddux, Fergie Jenkins, Hoyt Wilhelm, Rogers Hornsby, Dennis Eckersley, Ralph Kiner and Mr. Cub himself, Ernie Banks..are all in the Hall of Fame.
