Five Random Cubs Cards

I've got 14,871 Cubs cards from 121 different brands listed on a spreadsheet. A random number generator picked five cards, one each from the past several decades.

1900s - 1970s: 1961 Topps #169 Don Elston Don sure is one happy looking Cub.  His performance in 1961 was not much to smile about.  He was 6-7 with a bloated ERA of 5.59

1980s: 1987 Topps #697 Ed Lynch This card is high up on the list of all-time ugly Cubs cards.  Between the airbrushed hat and the bizarre face it is a complete mess.

1990s: 1992 Conlon #459 Roger Bresnahan  Tje card highlights his 1913 season with the Cubs.  There weren't many highlights as he hit just .228.

2000s: 2002 Fleer #122 Augie Ojeda  Augie spent the bulk of the 2002 season in AAA.  With the Cubs he played in just 30 games and hit a minuscule .186 

2010s: 2013 Cubs Ticket #54 Darwin Barney  This is the second of two appearance of Darwin on 2013 Cubs tickets.  A crowd of 32,000 saw the Dodgers beat the Cubs 6-2.  Barney was 2-4 with an RBI.
