Five Random Cubs Cards

I've got 13,963 Cubs cards from 107 different brands listed on a spreadsheet. A random number generator picked five cards, one each from the past several decades.

1900s - 1970s: 1957 Topps #16 Walt Moryn  Moose had a good year in 1957.  He was second on the team in games played and RBIs and also belted 19 homers

1980s: 1987 Topps Stickers #61 Ryne Sandberg  Looks like Topps caught Ryno at spring training.

1990s: 1994 Score #370 Jose Vizcaino  What an odd looking position they caught him in.  Is he heading to a base, ducking out of the way, taking off from first?

2000s: 2004 Heritage #138 Mark Grudzielanek  This card's portrait picture seems to have captured him deep in thought.  Is he thinking, "How could we have blown a 3-1 lead to the Marlins in the NLCS?"

2010s: 2013 Topps #299 Darwin Barney  The RNG picked my guy!  Darwin is celebrating a walk-off home run against the Padres on May 30, 2012.
