I've got 19,313 Cubs cards from 285 different brands listed on a spreadsheet. A random number generator picked five cards, one each from the past several decades.
1900s - 1970s: 1978 Topps #371 Ray Burris This is a great looking card! I love the home uniform, nice pose, close crop, and blue sky.
1980s: 1988 Classic Red #169 Ryne Sandberg This is a bad looking card! I hate the road uniform, weird candid shot, and dark contrast.
1990s: 1996 Topps Factory Team #278 Luis Gonzalez This comes from Topps' first attempt at a factory team set. There were 15 cards in the set and the cards got a special Team Topps logo on the front.2000s: 2007 Topps Traded #314 Craig Monroe I'm assuming this picture is a photoshop job. The numbers on the front seem a bit off.
