Cubs Trivia:

In what three seasons has the MLB All-Star Game been held at Wrigley Field?

1990, 1965, and I dunno, 1951. I know one of those is right!

I would like to say 1950 and 1990. Then I'll throw in 1962 as a random guess.

Stinky got two out of three. Let's see if we can get this thing finished off before Spriggs wakes up.

62 and 90 are the ones I know for sure. The other was in the late 40s... I'll say 1948

Well, if we aren't it would have to be 1947 to stay in the late 40's.

I actually recall watching the 1962 game. One of my earlier baseball memories. Back then they had 2 all-star games each year. I know the NL got beat pretty handily at the Wrigley game and remember that Johnny Roseboro (Dodgers) hit a late meaningless HR for the NL. I'll have to go check my memory, but also seems like Leon "Daddy Wags" Wagner had a big day for the AL... maybe a couple homers.

I was three months old, so I don't really remember that game as well as you do.

Hey, you guys should collect scorecards from the games!! this one should have been much easier than you made it out to be. Scorecards from each of these years are still quite affordable. spoiler alert, they published a reprint of the 1962 scorecard. Make sure the older ones say Neely printing on them.

Hey, Paul, just curious: do you collect used/filled-in scorecards, or blank ones?
