Five Random Cubs Cards

I've got 17,132 Cubs cards from 200 different brands listed on a spreadsheet. A random number generator picked five cards, one each from the past several decades.

1900s - 1970s: 1961 Topps Stamps Billy Williams Full Panel This is one of the two different panels that included Billy and it pairs two Hall of Famers.  Billy did really good against Spahn, hitting .396 over 55 plate appearances.  

1980s: 1984 Topps Traded #50 Richie Hebner  What a great looking card!  This is a great looking posed shot.

1990s: 1991 Fleer #436 Hector Villanueva  In the card above, Hepner looks like a ball player.  In this card, Villanueva looks like a softball player.

2000s: 2005 Gallery #89 Greg Maddux  Does the card really look like this or do I need to get my glasses prescription changed.

2010s: 2017 Allen & Ginter #161 Ernie Banks Mr. Cub is signing at a spring training game in the mid-seventies.
