Five Random Cubs Cards

I've got 20,695 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: 1975 Topps #519 Jim Todd The righty didn't play for the 1975 Cubs.  He was traded to the A's in early April and in return the Cubs got Champ Summers.

1980s: 1987 Team-Issued Rick Sutcliffe  The Cubs gave away this set of cards on Wednesday, July 29.  Sutcliffe didn't play that day as he started the day before, picking up the win for the Cubs.

1990s: 1991 Classic Series III #T14 Andre Dawson I have 25 different Cubs card from 1991 Classic and this one is the only with a vertical orientation.

2000s: 2001 Stadium Club #171 Corey Patterson  I never noticed this before... above his name is says "2000 MLB Future Star."  Shouldn't is say "2001" since this is a 2001 set?

2010s: 2017 Topps 1987 #74 Kyle Schwarber This picture comes from 2015. Schwarber didn't play and day games at Wrigley Field in 2016.  His only Wrigley appearances that year was as a pinch hitter in game three of the World Series, which was a night game.
