Five Random Cubs Cards

 I've got 20,582 Cubs cards from 304 different brands listed on a spreadsheet. A random number generator picked five cards, one each from the past several decades.

1900s - 1970s: 1979 Wiffle Manny Trillo The discs in the 1979 WIffle set were printed on the packaging and had to be cut out by hand.  My Trillo disc was not cut out by a very steady hand.

1980s: 1986 Leaf #181 Shawon Dunston  Dunston usually had a big smile on his cards.  Not this one, though.

1990s: 1990 Leaf #361 Les Lancaster Two Leaf cards in a row!  Les was more in 1990 with a career-high nine wins.

2000s: 2005 Classics #116 Aramis Ramirez  This card looks weird to me with the player in color and everything else in that bland brown tint.

2010s: 2011 Finest #92 Darwin Barney Autograph Relic Purple This is from the Barney PC and is one of six different versions I have of this card.
