Five Random Cubs Cards

I've got 21,330 Cubs cards from 316 different brands listed on a spreadsheet. A random number generator picked five cards, one each from the past several decades.

1900s - 1970s: 1976 O-Pee-Chee #227 Oscar Zamora I love to look of this card, with the low angle of the picture.  So who far down did the photographer have to get?

1980s: 1988 Fleer #419 Shawon Dunston One of just a few of Dunston's cards that don't show him with a huge grin.

1990s: 1992 Pinnacle #414 Mike Morgan This is a pretty plain looking card for something called "Pinnacle."  And the way the card is cropped, it looks like Morgan is getting decapitated.

2000s: 2007 Team Issued Upper Deck #1 Alfonso Soriano The Cubs partnered with Upper Deck on this card, which was included in the first edition of the 2007 game program.  

2010s: 2016 Stadium Club #199 Hector Rondon Hector looks pretty pumped here.  With the bunting along the brick in the background, I'm assuming that this if from a playoff game. Rondon got the save in game four when the Cubs clinched the NLDS against the Cardinals.
