The Chicago Cubs had historic season last year with the ball club winning its first World Series title in 108 years, and of course, most fans would like to have a Cubs-related memorabilia to hold on to as a reminder of that special moment.
But a $200 leaf? The Cubs can miss me with that. For some odd reason, the Cubs decided to sell leaves from the famous ivy covering the outfield wall at Wrigley Field. According to ESPN, the team emailed premier clients and season-ticket holders on June 13 with an offer to purchase the ivy leaves that covered Wrigley Field’s outfield walls during the 2016 season.
Although the foliage is typically discarded when the ivy turns red and sheds its leaves in November, the team, after the historic 2016 season, instead chose to collect the leaves for the first time and have each authenticated with a hologram.
Each leaf costs $200 plus $15 shipping.
$215 for A LEAF!
Yes, 2016 was a year Cubs fans will never forget, but I would rather find a random ivy bush, pick off a leaf—FOR FREE—and pretend it came from Wrigley Field than pay $215.
