Five Random Cubs Cards

I've got 14,423 Cubs cards from 109 different brands listed on a spreadsheet. A random number generator picked five cards, one each from the past several decades.

1900s - 1970s: 1909 T206 Jake Pfiester Throwing This is one of two cards of Pfiester in the set. The other shows him seated.  Pfiester was #3 in the rotation for the Cubs dynasty of the early 1900s.  The lefty had a career ERA of 2.02 over eight seasons.

1980s: 1985 Topps #693 Tim Stoddard  The best thing about this card is the look at the Starter Jacket that Stoddard is wearing.  I had one of those shiny coats in the early '80s.

1990s: 1994 Finest #175 Jose Bautista  What an odd angle for the picture...his face is mostly obscured by his arm and we really have no idea what he actually looks like.

2000s: 2004 Topps Total #6 Mark Prior Checklist The front of this card is identical to Prior's regular card, #250.  The checklist is on the back.

2010s: 2010 Allen & GInter #AGR-CM Carlos Marmol relic Marmol has this relic card but no regular card in the set.
