Five Random Cubs Cards

I've got 15,019 Cubs cards from 122 different brands listed on a spreadsheet. A random number generator picked five cards, one each from the past several decades.

1900s - 1970s: 1970 Topps Super #40 Billy Williams  The card is from 1970, but the picture looks to be from the mid-Sixties.  I'm going to go out on a limb and say that this picture was taken the same day as...

...this one.

1980s: 1980 TCMA All Time Cubs #4 Larry French  Monsieur Larry spent seven seasons pitching for the Cubs.  His record was 98-84 with an ERA of 3.54.  Those are mediocre numbers, not All Time Cubs numbers.

1990s: 1990 Team Issued Marathon #18 Dwight Smith  His average dropped 60 points and his RBIs were cut in half.  Yes, Dwight Smith had a sophomore slump in 1990.

2000s: 2003 Flair Greats Ballpark Heroes #5 Ernie Banks  Wrigley Field in the background and 1968 Ernie in the front...nice card!

2010s: 2014 Heritage #348 Kyuji Fujikawa  How do you say flop in Japanese?  In English you can also say Fujikawa.  In Japanese, Google Translate says it is
