Five Random Cubs Cards

I've got 16,965 Cubs cards from 201 different brands listed on a spreadsheet. A random number generator picked five cards, one each from the past several decades.

1900s - 1970s: 1949 Bowman #184 Bob Chipman This card was taken from a black and white picture but the artist got a color wrong.  The C on his chest should be red, not blue.

This is what is should look like.

1980s: 1987 Fleer #569 Keith Moreland  And it you weren't sure what the Cubs logo look like, Fleer gives us two right next to each other.  Bowman, take note.

1990s: 1991 Score #379 Derrick May Going back on a fly ball on a nice summer day at Wrigley... what a nice looking card.

2000s: 2001 Fleer Ultra #94 Eric Young  Speed EY gets in ahead of the ball.  He's safe!

2010s: 2018 Heritage #297 Cubs Rookies All three have had time in the big leagues, but none have impressed.  Maples has the best chance to do something.
