Five Random Cubs Cards

I've got 17,285 Cubs cards from 203 different brands listed on a spreadsheet. A random number generator picked five cards, one each from the past several decades.

1900s - 1970s: 1967 Topps #215 Ernie Banks  This is one of my favorite cards of Mr. Cub. It really seems to capture his happy persona.

1980s: 1981 Topps Coke #12 Cubs Ad Card  The Topps Coke set included an ad card, The back of the card has an offer for a 132-card uncut sheet for just four bucks.

1990s: 1993 Leaf #70 Sammy Sosa  I always get a kick out of cards from the skinny Sammy era.

2000s: 2003 Fleer #129 Matt Clement  The bare ivy means we have a picture from April or May.

2010s: 2016 Archives 1969 Topps Super  #JAR Jake Arrieta  Arrieta has his "don't mess with me" face.
