Five Random Cubs Cards

I've got 17,567 Cubs cards from 207 different brands listed on a spreadsheet. A random number generator picked five cards, one each from the past several decades.

1900s - 1970s: 1978 Hostess #90 Bobby Murcer Murcer looks like a nice enough guy, but Madlock for Murcer was a bad trade.

1980s: 1988 Donruss Traded #45 Darin Jackson Jackson has a bit of a "deer in the headlights" look.  I be most rookies had that feeling.

1990s: 1990 Swell #95 Ernie Banks  I love all the color on the Swell 1990 cards.  The yellow, blue and red on the card match well with the blue and the red of the Cubs uniform.  Nice!

2000s: 2007 Topps Chrome #174 Carlos Zambrano  The 2007 Topps design was the opposite of the Swell design -- very little color.  Yuk!

2010s: 2019 Topps 150 Year of Baseball #21 Javier Baez  We'll see if Baez makes the 175 Years of Baseball set in 2044.
