Five Random Cubs Cards

 I've got 21,734 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: 1972 Topps #208 Milt Pappas It seems to be very disrespectful to use a hatless picture when the player hasn't changed teams.

1980s: 1986 Fleer #366 Shawon Dunston  I wonder what he is thinking here?  And it looks like this must have been a cold day because he is wearing two jackets.

1990s: 1995 Donruss #385 Mike Morgan Look at the insert picture.  You don't see very many where the player is signaling two outs, or if he is from Texas, hook'em Horns!

2000s: 2004 Topps Total #556 Tom Goodwin  It looks like he is going to trip over his bat.

2010s: 2017 Diamond Kings #100 Billy Williams  Panini gave Billy a hundred number in the set.  That was something Topps did just once during his playing career.  He was #200 in the 1973 set.
