Five Random Cubs Cards

I've got 17,355 Cubs cards from 203 different brands listed on a spreadsheet. A random number generator picked five cards, one each from the past several decades.

1900s - 1970s: 1969 Topps #450 Billy Williams Billy is very young looking in this picture.  I would peg it to be either 1964 or 1965

1980s: 1989 Topps #742 Mike Harkey Future Star Harkey spent all of 1989 in AAA Iowa.  He was hurt for a good part of the year and made just 12 starts.

1990s: 1993 Stadium Club #228 Rick Wilkins  I love a good collision picture! Notice how his facemask if in the air, too.  Very cool looking!

2000s: 2008 Heritage Rookie Performers #7 Jeff Samardzija  A spellcheck sighting!  Samardzija was working out of the bullpen in 2008.

2010s: 2016 Gypsy Queen #GMR-CE Carl Edwards I picked up this mini relic as the rule-following card for Carl Edwards.  Relics with pinstripes are alway my preference

  1. I thought Wilkins had the baseball knocked loose by the Astro base runner. Then I realized it was part of the Stadium Club design. Ha!
