I have been toying with the idea of buying a new Cubs jersey. My dilemma is which player to get. So I ask you, if you were to buy a new Cubs jersey today, what would you buy?
My thinking here is that the only players on the current roster I would even consider getting is either Castro or Rizzo. The two factors considered here are a) they will have a good enough Cubs career for the jersey to be relative for a long time and b) they will actually be on the team for a long time. (which with this front office I don't believe is a guarantee for anyone.)
Or I could go another route and get a jersey of a former player. My latest idea was to get a Mark Grace jersey, even with his actions as of late he was always one of my favorite players as a Cub. The other ideas were Andre Dawson or Greg Maddux. I know there are many other options, but those were before my generation.
These jerseys aren't cheap, so I guess I'm just saying I want one that I can wear and will be relative for a long time.
So I pose three questions:
Which jersey would you purchase today?
If you do already have one or more jerseys, which ones do you have?
Has anyone bought a Cubs jersey only to regret it later?
