Here's what I did to pick the cards shown (when possible): This is Samardzijas's second Opening Day start, so I've got the card from the season of Fergie's second Opening Day start. I could do the same with Grace, Sandberg, Dunston, Santo, Williams, and Sosa. I've also got the opening day count for today's Cubs lineup.
