Five Random Cubs Cards

I've got 17,981 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: 1970 Kelloggs #43 Glenn Beckert  Freak me out!  The RNG gives us a card of Glenn Beckert, who passed away a week ago today.

1980s: 1985 Donruss #604 Dave Lopes The shadows on his face make Lopes look very old and kinda sinister.

1990s: 1998 Topps Chrome #108 Kevin Orie  A shiny card of a bust of a player.

2000s: 2000 Topps Chrome #207 Prospects Roosevelt Brown / Corey Patterson  The RNG picks another shiny card of more busts.

2010s: 2018 Heritage Minor Deckle Edge #19 Adbert Alzolay  Hopefully Adbert can pitch better than he can sign an autograph.


  1. Hey, the RNG getting all sentimental on us! A nice tribute.

    And at least one guy on that prospects card was definitely not a bust...of course, he also wasn't a Cub, so I can see why that doesn't help you. B^)

  2. Orie, Patterson, and Brown. Wow. Made me expect to see Brett Jackson and Josh Vitters.
