Five Random Cubs Cards

I've got 14,345 Cubs cards from 108 different brands listed on a spreadsheet. A random number generator picked five cards, one each from the past several decades.

1900s - 1970s: 1978 Hostess #69 Manny Trillo  Topps produced the cards for Hostess and it looks like....

 ...they took the picture for the Topps set at the same time.

1980s: 1988 Donruss MVP #10 Andre Dawson  Donruss had a set called MVP but this is the only card in the 1988 set of the reigning NL MVP.  

1990s: 1996 Bazooka #90 Brian McRae  I love the could of dust after his slide.  You don't see that any more, with the modern clay infields.  Bring back dirt!

2000s: 2000 Opening Day #24 Sammy Sosa Remember when Opening Day had big giant foil logos?  The giant logo matches nicely with Sammy's giant head.

2010s: 2016 Opening Day #47 Kyle Schwarber Another Opening Day card, giving us the chance to see how boring the look of the set has become.  Opening Day = Foil-less flagship.
