Five Random Cubs Cards

I've got 17,956 Cubs cards from 218 different brands listed on a spreadsheet. A random number generator picked five cards, one each from the past several decades.

1900s - 1970s: 1975 Topps #566 Ray Burris  The blue top border matches very nicely with the blue sky and the blue uniform.  The green on the bottom - yuk!

1980s: 1989 Starting Lineup Andre Dawson

1990s: 1993 Topps #402 Ryne Sandberg All Star Rockies Version Topps found any reason to make more sets in the early '90s.  I bought both the Marlins and Rockies versions when I was on a parallels kick a few years ago.

2000s: 2002 Bowman #138 Corey Patterson  In 2002 we had high hopes for Corey.  Those hopes were dashed a few years later when Corey became KKKKKKKorey.

2010s: 2019 Allen & Ginter Mini #270 Ben Zobrist  It was nice to see Zobrist make a guest appearance at the Cubs camp in early March.
