Five Random Cubs Cards

I've got 15,904 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: Topps 1972 #61 Cubs Rookies  Hooton was good, Hiser and Stephenson were not.  Hooton was in the majors for 15 seasons, Hiser has a career average of .202 over bits of five seasons, and Stephenson was 4-5 over parts of four years.

1980s: 1989 Fleer #436 Jeff Pico  Pico spent most of the 1989 season working middle relief for the Cubs.  He did not make the Cubs post-season roster.

1990s: 1995 Illinois State Police Ozzie Timmons  The RNG gives us an unknown player from an unknown set.  Making his MLB debut in 1995, Timmons hit .263 in 77 games

2000s: 2001 Topps #17 Joe Girardi  Is this a card of the future manager of the Cardinals??

2010s: 2016 Topps Chrome #55 John Lackey  Another ugly looking grunt-face card.
