Five Random Cubs Cards

I've got 17,979 Cubs cards from 218 different brands listed on a spreadsheet. A random number generator picked five cards, one each from the past several decades.

1900s - 1970s: 1964 Topps #237 Cubs Team I've covered this in posts from several years ago, but this card has uses the picture of the 1959 Cubs and was on the team card in 1960 and 1963

1980s: 1989 Starting Lineup Rick Sutcliffe The 1989 season was the last good one for Sutcliffe, as he went 16-11 with an ERA of 3.66.  He would pitch for five more seasons and his ERA was above 4.00 each of those years.

1990s: 1999 Team Issued All-Century Team Sammy Sosa I doubt that Sammy would have made the team if the selection was held a year earlier.  His 1998 season changed everything

2000s: 2007 Donruss Elite Throwback Threads #DB Darwin Barney This is probably the only orange relic among the cards of this blue team collector.

2010s: 2018 Big League #127 Willson Contreras Willson is on his knees, asking that there be a season in 2020!

  1. That Darwin is fantastic! I've never seen that one before!
    Oh, and such an appropriate caption for Willson's card.
    Hope you're staying safe!
