Five Random Cubs Cards

I've got 16,809 Cubs cards from 198 different brands listed on a spreadsheet. A random number generator picked five cards, one each from the past several decades.

1900s - 1970s: 1973 Jewel Ron Santo The 1973 season was Santo's last with the Cubs.

1980s: 1987 Classic Yellow #124 Andre Dawson  Who thought that this picture would be appropriate for a baseball card?  Yikes

1990s: 1997 Pacific #250 Mark Grace  Just a hint of stirrup left as the pant kept getting longer throughout the '90s.

2000s: 2006 Topps #450 Derrek Lee  Lee was coming off of the best year of his career and Topps rewarded him with a x50 card number.

2010s: 2011 Topps Traded #205 D.J. LeMahieu  LeMahium is turning a 5-4-3 double play against the White Sox on June 20, 2011.

  1. I wouldn't want to be the pitcher who just threw that ball at The Hawk.
