Five Random Cubs Cards

  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.

2010s: 2019 Topps Stickers #181 Ben Zobrist This was one of the sticker backs.  Lorenzo Cain is on the front, which gives me a Brewer in my collection - yuk!
