Five Random Cubs Cards

I've got 16,769 Cubs cards from 198 different brands listed on a spreadsheet. A random number generator picked five cards, one each from the past several decades.

1900s - 1970s: 1956 Topps #41 Hank Sauer  The action shot shows Sauer making a grab at the Polo Grounds.  

1980s: 1989 Topps #240 Greg Maddux   A card like this reminds me of just how young Maddux was when he came to the Cubs.  This picture was most likely taken in 1988 and Maddux was 22.

1990s: 1990 Donruss Rookies #18 Shawon Boskie  This is from the 56-card rookie set.  Boskie was 5-6 with an ERA of 3.69 in his rookie season of 1990

2000s: 2001 Upper Deck #389 Bill Mueller  Upper Deck needed to Photoshop in some sort of background.  This is one dull looking card!

2010s: 2013 Team Issued #15 Darwin Barney The RNG likes this card.  In early February it picked the season ticket holder version of the card.  Today its the card that was given away May 3, 2013.

  1. That's a nice looking Darwin card. Did he hang 'em up and I missed it?
