Five Random Cubs Cards

I've got 16,951 Cubs cards from 200 different brands listed on a spreadsheet. A random number generator picked five cards, one each from the past several decades.

1900s - 1970s: 1967 Dexter Press Ken Holtzman  I never noticed that Holtzman signed this as "Kenny."  

1980s: 1988 Star '88 #5 Andre Dawson  This is an nice shot of Dawson taking a huge cut.  

1990s: 1991 Fleer #709 Ryne Sandberg Home Run Kings  I'd assume that this was taken at Wrigley Field in 1990, as the Cubs hosted the All-Star game.  It seems like they are overdue to host the game again.

2000s: 2007 Upper Deck #609 Mark DeRosa DeRosa spent two years with the Cubs and they won the division both years.

2010s: 2012 Sega Card Gen #233 Jeff Samardzija  Who'd have thought when this card came out in 2012 that 'Ol Spellcheck would end up earning nearly $120 million over his career.

  1. I liked DeRosa when he was a Cub. He seemed to be a smart guy who didn't mind filling in where needed to help the club.
