Five Random Cubs Cards

I have 5,408 Cubs cards from 16 different brands. A random number generator picked five of them. Here they are in the order selected.

Score 1993 #213 Derrick May
This is the second time a Derrick May card has been picked. May had a decent season in 1993 as the Cubs left fielder. He hit .295 with 10 home runs and 77 RBI's.

Donruss 1989 #285 Calvin Schiraldi This bum gets no love from both Red Sox and Cubs fans. The Cubs got him in a trade for Lee Smith, but Schiraldi was awful. He followed up his 9-13 performance in 1988 with a 3-6 record in 1989 before being dumped on the Padres in late August, 1989.

Topps 2007 #275T Classic Combo Mike Fontenot I'm not sure what is "Classic" about these two guys. If you were going to use Fontenot on a Combo card, wouldn't it have made more sense to pair him with his LSU and Cubs teammate Ryan Theriot?

Fleer 1996 #U249 Ryne Sandberg Encore
This is an update card of Sandberg when he came back to the Cubs after a year and a half of retirement. Chicago guys who wear #23 don't like to stay retired.

Upper Deck 2008 #358 Alfonso Soriano Team Checklist Alfonso, Felix Pie, and the rest of the boys are celebrating a victory on the road.
