Five Random Cubs Cards

I've got 15,462 Cubs cards from 130 different brands listed on a spreadsheet. A random number generator picked five cards, one each from the past several decades.

1900s - 1970s: 1975 Pioneers of Baseball #1 Cap Anson  Anson was one of three Cubs in this 28-card set.  The cards came one to a pack and were sold with Fleer stickers. The card was included to add rigidity to the pack of stickers.

1980s: 1984  Team Issued Coaches  I wonder why they made Don Zimmer take his hat off for the picture?

1990s: 1997 Fleer Ultra #163 Brant Brown If Brown had stuck to playing first base, we never would have had....

 ....his most noted moment as a Cub in 1998

2000s: 2009 Finest #98 Derrek Lee  The 2009 season was Lee's last great season, as he hit .306 with 35 HRs and 111 RBIs.

2010s: 2016 Topps Chrome #166 Kyle Schwarber  It will be interesting to see if Schwarber rebounds after his poor 2017 season. He has worked hard over the offseason, dropping 20 pounds.
