Five Random Cubs Cards

 I've got 20,572 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: 1977 Burger Chef Jose Cardenal  It would have been more appropriate for Jose to be on a disc or card put out by Oscar Mayer, since he was quite a hot dog.

1980s: 1983 Team Issued Tom Veryzer  He's crouching so low that he doesn't even cover half of the card!

1990s: 1991 Star Millennium #3 Ryne Sandberg  It looks like they snapped a shot of Ryno fielding grounders during infield practice.

2000s: 2004 Studio #40 Aramis Ramirez   I really liked the look of this edition of Studio, with the Chicago skyline in the background.

2010s: 2016 Allen and Ginter #125 Carl Edwards  He recorded two of the three outs in the last inning of the 2016 World Series, so Edwards will always be thought of positively.
