Five Random Cubs Cards

I've got 16,025 Cubs cards from 134 different brands listed on a spreadsheet. A random number generator picked five cards, one each from the past several decades.

1900s - 1970s: 1957 Topps #137 Bob Rush  The 1957 cards give us a final look at the Cubs wishbone C hats.  They went to the current rounded C that season.

1980s: 1982 Team-Issued Jerry Morales  Morales was one of several Cubs from the mid-Seventies with a couple different tenures with the team.  Morales, Manny Trillo, and Rick Reuschel come to mind quickly.

1990s: 1993 Topps Gold #487 Jessie Hollns  Hollins pitched in just four games with the 1992  Cubs but that was enough to earn him a card in the 1993 set.

2000s: 2002 Victory #306 Eric Young  The bat looks to be a little high for a bunt.  I wonder if he got it down successfully?

2010s: 2016 Heritage Rookie Performers #KS Kyle Schwarber  I never noticed it in 2016 when the card came out, but the font for the word "Performers" is the same one used for team names on the '67 design.
