Five Random Cubs Cards

I've got 14,494 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: 1974 Topps #598 Jim Tyrone  Tyrone didn't have the best Cub career among the players on this card, Steve Ontiveros did...and that isn't saying much.

1980s: 1989 Score #263 Jamie Moyer  Moyer didn't spent the '89 season with the Cubs.  He had been traded to the Rangers in the Mitch Williams deal.

1990s: 1991 Star Stellar #92 Ryne Sandberg Ryno is at the plate and it looks like Mark Grace is in the on deck circle.  In 1991 those two were the top two offensive stars of the team.

2000s: 2002 Leaf #58 Chris Stynes  He was a member of the Cubs for one very mediocre season... 98 games and a .241 average, 5 homers and 26 RBIs.

2010s: 2015 Archives Fan Favorites Autograph MP Mark Prior  This is a friendly reminder of how the dynasty you thought was being built can crumble at any time.
