Five Random Cubs Cards

 I've got 18,974 Cubs cards from 278 different brands listed on a spreadsheet. A random number generator picked five cards, one each from the past several decades.

1900s - 1970s: 1975 Topps #315 Don Kessinger  Kessinger was the last man standing of the 1969 Cubs.  By the 1975 season, he was the only member left and he was traded after the season.

1980s: 1981 Topps Giant #9 Mike Tyson  He looks almost as terrifying as the boxing Mike Tyson.

1990s: 1992 Topps Traded Gold #109 Sammy Sosa  Skinny Sammy takes a swing.

2000s: 2007 Topps Factory Set Bonus #4 Wade Miller This came from the Cubs team specific factory set.  Does Topps still do that any more?

2010s: 2012 Gypsy Queen Mini #72 Ryan Dempster  After four cards from Topps, the streak is broken with a GQ card.  I do like the minis from GQ.
