Card of the Day

1996 Topps Stadium Club #53

What a great shot of Cubs pitcher Jim Bullinger on one of the rooftops on Sheffield Avenue across from the right field bleachers at Wrigley Field. The colors are terrific as well as the detail. You can even see the tarps covering the mound and plate in the left field bullpen near the wall just past the infield.

Here are a couple of shots as reference points:

The street in front of the buildings is Sheffield on the east side of Wrigley. You can see the EL tracks behind them ("This is Addison--Next stop Belmont, change for the Ravenswood"). On the left, Sheffield intersects with Waveland Avenue.

Here's a happening pre-game shot. Looks like some kind of Nascar promotion was going on that day.
