The most random card show pick ups

I don't know if I'd set out to go out to look for something specific in mind when I finally got a chance to go to a card show where they sometimes still sell cards - this one vintage dealer with a booth uncharacteristically has some assorted nickel and dime junk to rummage through, so I dug out the following cards from the quarter box.

1967 Topps Wayne Causey #286

1975 Topps Al Hrabosky #122

1975 Topps Gary Gentry #393
1986 Donruss The Rookies Bo Jackson #38

1990 Leaf Rickey Henderson #160

1994 Bowman's Best Tony Clark #62 - it's probably how the technology in making these cards have aged, but there seems to be some discoloring issues with the foil / refractor surfaces.
1997 Bowman's Best Jamey Wright #181 - as a baseball fan, I find it kind of fascinating how journeymen [85-121, 4.93 ERA] like Wright latch onto MLB jobs towards their mid 30's and possibly through their early 40s.
2000 Topps Traded Chrome Brian Sanches #T64 - he was signed this past offseason to see if he can make the Philadelphia Phillies Opening Day roster.
