Five Random Cubs Cards

I've got 18,578 Cubs cards from 259 different brands listed on a spreadsheet. A random number generator picked five cards, one each from the past several decades.

1900s - 1970s: 1979 Hall of Fame Postcards Hack Wilson  Hack got into the Hall of Fame base on one number - 191 - which is his RBI total from 1930.  

1980s: 1989 Panini #55 Mark Grace  Looks like Panini didn't work very hard on their designs, but at least they had a license to show the logos

1990s: 1995 Conlon #1409 Cliff Heathcote  What I think of when I hear this name is Bill Cosby's character from the Cosby Show, Heathcliff Huxtable.  It used to bring a little smile to my face.  Now it just gives me the creeps.

2000s: 2009 SP Legendary Cuts #134 Billy Williams  Billy Williams card, good; purple card, very bad.

2010s: 2013 Team Issued #40 Ryne Sandberg This card gives us a peak at Heritage 2021.
