Five Random Cubs Cards

I've got 15,220 Cubs cards from 127 different brands listed on a spreadsheet. A random number generator picked five cards, one each from the past several decades.

1900s - 1970s: 1979 Topps #398 Ivan DeJesus  DeJesus was the Cubs starting shortstop for the third consecutive year in 1979.  Extremely durable, he played in 160 games, which led the team.  He also hit a career high .283.

1980s: 1986 Leaf #94 Keith Moreland He's squatting like a catcher, but has a fielder's mitt.  Always versatile, in 1986 he played right field, third base, first base, and catcher.

1990s: 1995 Collectors Choice #204 Shawon Dunston  After missing most of the past three seasons due to injuries, Dunston came back in 1995 and had a nice season.  He played in 127 games and hit .296.....and the Cubs let him go as a free agent after the season.

2000s: 2001 Heritage Classic Renditions #4 Sammy Sosa  Yes, this is classic Sammy, as opposed to whatever he is now.

2010s: 2017 Topps Salute #120 Kris Bryant Spring Training  I'm not sure why we need to salute spring training, but Topps must have their reasons.
