Five Random Cubs Cards

Just cards today without many addition to being busy with back to school things, the mainframe of the Wrigley Wax World Headquarters Information System died.  I spent all day Saturday getting the new computer set up.

I've got 11,792 Cubs cards from 83 different brands listed on a spreadsheet. A random number generator picked five cards, one each from the past several decades. 

1950s / 1960s: 1967 Topps #608 Cubs Rookies...Nye had a big league career of a few years, Upham had a 21 game career over two season

1970s: 1976 Topps #403 Geoff of two Cubs in the 1976 set with a last name that starts with the letter Z.  The other.........the immortal Oscar Zamora

1980s: 1989 Topps #668 Mike Bielecki....never noticed how blue his eyes are.

1990s: 1993 Pinnacle #371 Derrick May...this is much better than the junk that Panini is calling Pinnacle

2000s: 2001 Bowman #244 Corey Patterson.....KKKKKKorey
