1986 Big League Chew Cubs Checklist

Number of Cards

Big League Chew had 12 cards in 1986, one of which was a Cubs player.

Size of Cards

The standard-sized cards are the following dimensions: 2-1/2" by 3-1/2"

Basic Features

The cards were inserted in the packages of Big League Chew gum,one per pouch which were shaped and styled after a pouch of chewing tobacco. also were available through a mail-in offer of two coupons and $2.00 for a complete set. Each player in this featured set is a member of the 500 career home run club and is subtitled "Home Run Legends." The front of each card has a shot of the player and also shows the year inside a small flag; that player has passed 500 homers. The backs are printed in blue ink on white card stock, which has the normal bio and a great blurb about their careers. I'm a big fan of this set and love the classy photo of Banks at Wrigley in his hayday. It's worth hunting this classic down.
