Five Random Cubs Cards

I've got 16,728 Cubs cards from 197 different brands listed on a spreadsheet. A random number generator picked five cards, one each from the past several decades.

1900s - 1970s: 1965 Topps Embossed #67 Dick Ellsworth  The embossed cards have to be one of the more unique inserts from Topps.  They haven't tried anything similar.

1980s: 1988 Topps #615 Jody Davis  This picture must be from an early spring game because there are a lot of empty seat in the background.

1990s: 1997 Pacific #247 Scott Bullett

2000s: 2009 Topps #276 Geovany Soto Rookie of the Year This picture looks to be from the early spring too (there are some bundled up fans), but the stands are packed now.

2010s: 2015 Gypsy Queen Mini #97 Anthony Rizzo  Mini cards used to be such a big part of Gypsy Queen.  Now they're down to just a twenty player insert set.
