Series Two Salute

There are seven Cubs cards among the 100 series two Salute cards.

Some featured players that weren't in series one's Salute


It's nice to see Fergie included, but man, what an ugly look on his face.

The other five cards are repeat players.  Was that necessary?


Bryant and Rizzo have spring training cards.  Why do we need to salute spring training?

Russell is taking a curtain call on April 11, 2016, the Cubs home opener.  He hit a three-run homer in the bottom of the eighth to give the Cubs a 5-3 lead.

These last two are totally unnecessary. They're throwback jersey cards, though both Rizzo and Russell had throwback cards in the first series


At least Russell's second card...


....shows a different uniform.

Look at the two Rizzo cards...


...same uniform, almost the same picture.  What was the point of the second card?
