Five Random Cubs Cards

I've got 18,261 Cubs cards from 252 different brands listed on a spreadsheet. A random number generator picked five cards, one each from the past several decades.

1900s - 1970s: 1090 T206 Johnny Evers Chicago on Shirt  This is one of two Evers cards in the T206 set.  It is also one of three actual T206 cards I own.  The rest in my Cubs set are reprints.

1980s: 1989 Donruss All Star #49 Vance Law Law was an All-Star in 1988 but saw his average drop nearly 60 points in 1989.  The Cubs released him over the winter.

1990s: 1990 Classic #30 Dwight Smith Here's the trivia question for a home run on the back of Smith's card: What team was the fist team to win 3 straight World Series?  I'll have the answer at the end of the post

2000s: 2005 Topps Chrome #132 Kyle Farnsworth  The reliever wasn't with the Cubs in 2005.  He was traded to the Tigers in February, 2005.

2010s: 2013 Topps Mini #299 Darwin Barney Pink  Wow!  This is one of the 15/ cards that I wrote about on Thursday and the RNG picks it today.  What are the odds of that??

Trivia answer - the Yankees (thought the Cubs were the first team to win two in a row)
