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: 1959 Topps #429 Bobby Thomson I took me years to finally spell his last name correctly. I always wanted to spell it "Thompson."
1980s: 1989 Fleer #437 Ryne Sandberg Some day I have to play around with the 1989 Fleer set and change the gray border to blue, so the card would look like the Cubs late '70s - early 80's pajama road uniforms.
1990s: 1992 Sports Report #17 Ryne Sandberg The Sports Report was a short-lived guide that included cards in the magazine. There were just two issues and Ryno was in both. This card is from the initial promotional issue.2000s: 2009 Factory Team Set #CHC14 Ryan Theriot The Riot had career highs in games played (154) and home runs (7) for the Cubs in 2009.
