Kellogg's Cards of Cubs Who Played in the Playoffs
The Cubs are on the verge of making the playoffs again. They made the playoffs in 1984, 1989, 1998, 2003, 2007, 2008 and 2015. Before that, their most previous post-season appearance was in 1945.
Here is the list of Cubs with a Kellogg's card who played for the Cubs in the post-season from 1970 - 1983.
That's zero for 36. There are 36 Kellogg's cards featuring Cubs and none of those guys played in the post-season for the Cubs during that time. The Cubs did make the playoffs in 1984. Only one player from that roster got a Kellogg's card with the Cubs - Leon Durham. Bill Buckner was traded during the season for Dennis Eckersley. Rich Reuschel wasn't involved in the playoffs and was then released after the season. Others from that team were on a Kellogg's card when they played for a different team.
