Five Random Cubs Cards

I've got 15,810 Cubs cards from 133 different brands listed on a spreadsheet. A random number generator picked five cards, one each from the past several decades.

1900s - 1970s: 1974 Topps #338 Billy Williams All Star  Billy went 1-2 in the 1973 All Star game, with a single off of Catfish Hunter in the second inning.  The NL won the game 7-1.

1980s: 1983 Team-Issued Fergie Jenkins The 1983 season was Fergie's last.  He was 6-9 with an ERA of 4.30 and even had some bullpen duty.

1990s: 1991 SCD Price Guide #47 George Bell This card is one of my recent pickups, as I hunted down all of the cards from a couple of 1990s baseball card magazines.  I'm hoping to get posts on the hunt up within the next week or two.

2000s: 2007 Fleer Ultra #30 Alfonso Soriano The 2007 season was the first for Soriano with the Cubs and the last for Fleer Ultra.  One going up, the other going down.

2010s: 2017 Heritage #326 Ben Zobrist That's a pretty nice looking Heritage card.  I bet there aren't many others in the set with a player's position listed as OF-2B.
