Five Random Cubs Cards

This was scheduled to run yesterday, but it got bumped by something more important.

I've got 14,459 Cubs cards from 109 different brands listed on a spreadsheet. A random number generator picked five cards, one each from the past several decades.

1900s - 1970s: 1969 Jewel Ken Holtzman  A star from the 1969 team that didn't make it.

1980s: 1987 Donruss #447 Scott Sanderson  A star from the 1984 team that didn't make it.

1990s: 1990 Kaybee Toys #8 Andre Dawson  A star from the 1989 team that didn't make it.

2000s: 2007 Heritage #66 Matt Murton  A member of the 2007 team that didn't make it.  Sensing a theme yet?  The RNG really like players from team that... well, you know what they did (or didn't do).

2010s: 2013 Topps #299 Darwin Barney Silver Slate  Darwin never played on a good Cubs team.  The most wins any Cub team had during his time in Chicago was 75.  But he was a member of the 2016 Blue Jays, a team that didn't make it.
