50 Assorted San Francisco Giants cards

I bought this last month when I was down in Bay Area for family reunion at Fanzz store. It's 50 random cards of San Francisco Giants. Madison Bumgarner on top. Let's see who's the remaing 49 cards. Will split by year and set.
1987 O-Pee-Chee - 358 - Atlee Hammaker
1988 Score - Dave Dravecky, Joel Youngblood, Mike LaCoss
1990 - Jeff Brantley
1990 Fleer - Candy Maldonado, Dave Anderson (update series)
1990 Upper Deck - Jose Uribe, Jeff Brantley
1992 Score - Scott Garrelts, Kevin Bass, Jeff Brantley
1992 Donruss - Chris James
1993 Leaf - Royce Clayon, Trevor Wilson
1994 Topps Stadium Club - Royce Clayton
1996 Score - Deion Sanders - Prime Time is his baseball digs
1997 Topps Stadium Club - first Bonds card so far
1999 Just Minors - Nate Bump - never played a game for Giants. Spent three years with Florida Marlins including the improbable World Series victory.
2000 Fleer Ultra - Robb Nen - Gold Medallion card
2000 Topps Chrome - Rich Aurilia
2003 Upper Deck 40 Man - Ruben Rivera - his final year in the majors before spending his career playing Mexican Leagues
2005 Topps Total - Brett Tomko, Michael Tucker, Omar Vizquel, Edgardo Alfonso
2005 Topps Update and Highlights - Jonathan Sanchez - threw a no-hitter for Giants in 2009
2006 Topps Update and Highlights - Jason Schmidt, Kevin Frandsen
2007 Fleer - Fred Lewis
2008 Topps Heritage - Ray Durham, Nate Schierholtz - Schierholtz was another prospect that never cracked it with the Giants
2008 Topps - Dave Roberts, Randy Winn
2008 Bowman Draft Picks and Prospects - Angel Villalona - still stuck in the minors and haven't played a game for the Giants.
2008 Upper Deck First Edition - Bengie Molina, Dave Roberts
2008 Upper Deck - Brian Wilson, Brian Bocock, Steve Holm, Barry Zito - Wilson was World Series hero but battled injuries. Bocock had another cup of coffee the following season as a Phillie, but still trying get back. Holm out of baseball. Zito, in his final season now member of the A's, dueled with former teammate Tim Hudson and had his last start few days ago.
2009 Topps - Jesus Guzman - AAAA player at best
2008 O-Pee-Chee - Emmanuel Burriss - another former Giants prospect that hasn't produced much. Haven't been back in the majors since 2012
2011 Bowman - Jonathan Sanchez
2010 Upper Deck Biography - Jonathan Sanchez, Tim Lincecum - insert set featuring highlights of 2009 season. These featured Sanchez no-hitter and Lincecum shutting out the A's
2011 Topps Update - Orlando Cabrera, Bill Hall - Cabrera was pick up in a trade that sent Sanchez to Royals. Royals got screwed when Sanchez flamed out while Cabrera sizzled. Turns out his performance was enhanced getting popped for PED ending his career. Hall lasted 16 games with the team.
2011 Topps Lineage - Miguel Tejada -  spent a year with Giants
2013 Bowman - Madison Bumgarner - the ace who guided Giants to World Series victory last year with ridiculous video game like stats.

I expected "junk wax" era cards but 3/5 of cards from 2000. At least got a Bonds and Bumgarner along with Prime Time stint as Giants even after signing with 49ers then rivals Dallas Cowboys. That was fun pack.
