Five Random Cubs Cards

I've got 16,029 Cubs cards from 135 different brands listed on a spreadsheet. A random number generator picked five cards, one each from the past several decades.

1900s - 1970s: 1973 Topps #139 Carmen Fanzone  I really like the one-and-done road uniforms that the Cubs wore in 1972.  The red and blue on the sleeves and collar look great, as does the centered number.  They took a big step backwards when they went to a more reserved look in 1973.

1980s: 1982 Donruss #477 Dick Tidrow Its appropriate that the RNG picked a player that suited up for both Chicago teams on a weekend when they are taking on each other.

1990s: 1993 Ted Williams #21 Billy Herman  That's a pretty snazzy action shot for the '30s.

2000s: 2009 Allen and Ginter National Pride #4 Geovany Soto  Geo's career was on the way down in 2009 after winning Rookie of the Year in 2008.  I hope that Willson Contreras doesn't have the same quick decline.

2010s: 2016 Archives #173 Billy Williams  What a great way to end!!
