1984 Regular Season
The Sandberg Game
Cubs vs St. Louis
12 - 11
23 June, 1984
In what is now known as "The Sandberg Game," Ryne Sandberg pulled a remarkable performance to bring Chicago back from the brink in this game with against St. Louis. Trailing by 6 runs in the sixth, Sandberg hit a two run single as part of a five-run rally by Chicago. Then Sandberg tied the game in the ninth with a leadoff home run, and finally, tied the game yet again in the tenth with a two-out blast. Chicago eventually won the game in the eleventh inning on a bases-loaded single from Dave Owen.
1970 Regular Season
Banks hits 500
Cubs vs Atlanta
4 - 3
12 May, 1970
Mr. Cub hits his 500th homerun, a Chicago legend.
1998 Regular Season
Wood strikes out 20
Cubs vs Houston
2 - 0
6 May, 1998
In 1998 Kerry Wood became only the 2nd pitcher, after Roger Clemens, to strike out 20 batters in a 9-inning game. More remarkably, Wood was only 20 years old at the time and pitching in only his fifth major league game. Meaning that Wood struck out his age in only his fifth try in the big leagues.
2003 NLDS Game 5
Ending 95 year drought
Cubs vs Atlanta
5 - 1
5 October, 2003
Chicago ended a 95 year drought in 2003, winning their first postseason series since 1908. The win came against Atlanta, with Chicago prevailing in 5 games. Chicago won decisively in game 5, winning by 4 runs to take them to the NLCS.
I purchased a set for a gift for my husband. We were disappointed to find that one of the corners on one coaster was completely chipped off. We've requested a new set, however it hasn't been resolved.
As a Braves Fan we had to wait quite a while for this championship. When I saw these I had to get them for some of my family for Christmas who are avid Braves Fans. When they arrived they were not in great shape. I contacted customer service and they went above and beyond. They replaced both sets free of charge and told me not to send back the defective ones. While on Christmas I gifted the defective coasters both my sister and son went absolutely nuts. I told them that the replacements would come soon but couldn't make it in time for Christmas. Both responded these are the coolest things they got this year and after having waited 26 years for this championship what's a couple extra weeks. I have to say I couldn't be happier for the unique gift idea from Playbook Products or with their response to the original defective coasters. The new ones arrived and have been delivered to the appropriate recipients and they were as excited as they were Christmas morning. To say the least I will be ordering several other sets of other coasters for other members of my Family. I've got an Ohio State fan that will be getting her set for her birthday. Thanks again Playbook Products for great gift ideas and for Exceptional Customer Service.
We are customers for life and have forwarded your company link to all our friends that are sports fanatics that need or want unique gift ideas. You all hit a Grand Slam for me this Christmas so Thanks again for making me an MVP Gift Giver!
I ordered on Dec 27th. Today is January 12th and it still hasn’t shipped.
Got these for my brother, who is a big soccer fan. He loves them! The coasters are great quality and they were such a unique gift!
