Which Cubs jersey(s) would you buy

Postby David » Wed Feb 14, 2018 9:38 pm

This is a silly question but in trying to decide what should be my second jersey (I have a Bryant already) purchase from the current group, there are so many good players that I'm not even sure who I want...so I'm just curious who everyone thinks is jersey (not just shirsey) worthy.

You can choose up to 2.

Also, if you pick Zobrist, that's a dorky choice and you're a dork.

If you wanted to pick Maddon, that's even dorkier and you should feel shame.

Also, I don't know why I included Heyward but he's a cool guy so I can't hate on you if you do it.

Contreras because he's the second coolest and a bajillion people are gong to have Baez shirts/jerseys.

Rizzo because that's a great name to have on your back.

i've had basically these exact thoughts as i've contemplated jersey #2 (i already have a rizzo shirsey tho sooooo)

i think i'm between javy and willy, and while i love javy, i still fear he might flame out so i'd rather get a shirsey

I'd want Javy's, but I won't get any cuz I'm too paranoid about buying jerseys with names on them, and then something happening to that player.

Yeah, but most of these guys have immortal legacies as Cubs already even if they never played again. You're good.

i'm still regretting not having bought one of the gold numbered ones from last year

could never commit to which player i wanted. now all you can find are the $250 ones that are sized huge just like the real ones (not sure if they're entirely authentic or not)

Today I learned that you cannot make a custom Cubs jersey with Harper's name and number.

fun fact - for probably the best young catcher in the game, you have to custom make a cool base jersey if you want one

I don't like baseball jerseys. Give me shirseys all day.

The one jersey I do own is an ARod that was part of a problematic Halloween costume.

I bought one of the gold championship Rizzo's, already had a Rizzo jersey tee. If I had to pick a second, it would probably be Bryant. The Rizzo jersey is the only jersey I've ever bought. They wife has a Soriano in the closet. She wants a Baez jersey now.

I have Rizzo, Bryant, Russell (meh) and Contreras shirseys. Debated Contreras and Javy and decided on the former. Only actual jersey is Santo because I'm poor. If I were to get another it'd be Rizzo. Also voted Contreras because he's fun as hell.

I was so excited when we got Heyward that I immediately bought his jersey. God damnit.
