Five Random Cubs Cards

I've got 13,832 Cubs cards from 105 different brands listed on a spreadsheet. A random number generator picked five cards, one each from the past several decades.

The RNG came up with all sorts of oddballs today

1900s - 1970s: 1973 Fleer Famous Feats #7 Johnny Evers   Fleer really wanted to include Evers in the set.  The 21 steals of home that are noted are neither a major league record or even an NL record.

1980s: 1985 Drakes #6 Ron Cey Drakes has the Penguin swinging for the fences at Shea.

1990s: 1992 Cracker Jack #6 Andre Dawson  You'll have to trust me when I say that this is a Cracker Jack card.  In 1992 they teamed with Donruss and inserted mini-versions of the Donruss base card into boxes of Cracker Jack.

2000s: 2005 Upper Deck #322 Greg Maddux  Looks like the perennial Gold Glover is getting ready to grab a popup or bouncing ball.

2010s: 2013 Team Issued #14 Ernie Banks This is one of 82 cards that the Cubs gave away during the 2013 season.  We have a 1977 design and Mr. Cub posing at Seal Stadium in San Francisco.
