Five Random Cubs Cards

I've got 16,120 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: 1979 TCMA The 50's #47 Dee Fondy  The ball in the glove looks nice, but his foot seems to have missed the bag!

1980s: 1985 Team Issued #15 Davey Lopes  Lopes had a fairly productive year as a 40-year-old in 1985.  He hit .284 and hit 11 homers in 99 games.  His most amazing stat, though, is the 47 bases he stole.  That's five more than Rickey Henderson stole when he was 40.  

1990s: 1994 Finest #286 Willie Banks When you combine the words Cubs, Finest, and Banks, it is not Willie that comes to mind!

2000s: 2002 Donruss #109 Corey Patterson Corey was showing some promise as a 22-year-old in 2002.  It was his first full big league season and he hit .253 with 14 homers.  

2010s: 2017 Heritage #60 Carl Edwards  Edwards has a very interesting look on his face.
