Five Random Cubs Cards

I've got 16,831 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: 1952 Bowman #104 Hal Jeffcoat  The '52 Bowman set is one of the few reprint sets that I have in my collection.  I don't see myself getting the real deals any time soon.

1980s: 1988 Donruss Baseball's Best #228 Jamie Moyer  Donruss was really stretching by including Jamie Moyer in a set called Baseball's Best.  His 1987 record was 12-15 and his ERA was 5.10.  That is not what I would consider "Best."

1990s: 1993 SP #84 Jose Guzman  The Cubs signed Guzman to a 4 year, $14 million dollar contract prior to the '93 season.  Kudos to Upper Deck for showing him as a Cub in this 1993 set.

2000s: 2003 Jewish Major Leaguers #87 Ed Mayer  He had a big league career of just 22 games.  The lefty was no Sandy Koufax.

2010s: 2017 Topps Memorable Moments #2 Anthony Rizzo  Yes, that was a memorable moment!!
