Five Random Cubs Cards

I've got 17,660 Cubs cards from 213 different brands listed on a spreadsheet. A random number generator picked five cards, one each from the past several decades.

1900s - 1970s: 1975 Pioneers of Baseball #17 Johnny Evers The team sets checklist i used for this set lists the Evers card with the Cubs.  We'll just have to ignore that giant B on his uniform!

1980s: 1985 Circle K #10 Ernie Banks  its a very boring design, but a great looking picture of Mr. Cub.

1990s: 1990 National League's Best #97 Andre Dawson  This is a great looking picture of the Hawk ready to take a hack.

2000s: 2005 All Time Fan Favorite #112 Shawon Dunston  Dunston was definitely a fan favorite at Wrigley Field.

2010s: 2016 Wrigley FIeld 100 Years #43 Tom Glavine  Having to include a card showing a Met in a Cubs collection is not good!

  1. There are so many things wrong with that 100 Years subset Topps put out, IMHO. And seeing Glavine not only as one of the few they selected as a Wrigley moment, but also as a Met when he clearly is a Brave to everyone, that's just wrong on so many levels! I know he set a win milestone at Wrigley as a Met, just saying!!!
