Set: 2014 Topps - Power Players (Rate)

Card: #PP-38 Sean Burnett

“ Nothing too exciting here. 2014 design was ok. I feel like I entered some of these codes, but I didn't win anything. ” -switzr1

“ I wonder if anyone won anything? I doubt it. ” -carthage44

“ And this is what? A game card? Contest card? Not a fan of whatever it is. Any card that has a limited code to enter on the card maker's website I have always disliked. ” -captkirk42

“ Ahh, back when Topps still had complete statistics on the back. ” -RoundtheDiamond87

“ Not a lot of modifications needed to make this a really good card. I like it. I wasn't back to collecting in 2014, so I am not quite sure what was going on in the back of the card. ” -muskie027

“ Typical Topps card front from this era. White border, too close picture so you can't see the action, faded background. This is why I hate that Topps basically has a monopoly in baseball. Then the back I hate even more. I hate, hate, hate redemption cards. At least this one the front is usable. I have I don't know how many redemption cards that I bought the pack too late and have an expired redemption card. Put the card in the pack or don't have an expiration date. ” -davidhandberry

Set: 2016 Score (Rate)

Card: #297 Jared Cook

“ Wow it finally happened, I have a scan featured as RCotD! This Score set was one of my first exposures to new cards as I was getting back into the hobby in early 2016. I liked the design a lot with its clean, simple look. I ended up putting it together and I think it was my first completed set in 2016. I have good memories with this set. ” -ketchupman36

“ Los Angeles Rams. What a joke. One of the many reasons I don't watch the NFL. ” -switzr1

“ A really recent card for RCOTD. And on a day where they RCOTD is from the 1800's. I like the recent Score football sets. They have a nice look and are an affordable good looking set for collectors. I just wish the Panini backs weren't so bad. These had potential if they would just use a different picture and give you full stats. ” -muskie027

“ As much as I hate that Panini has the exclusive for football cards. They do a good job with Score. ” -captkirk42

“ Nicely designed card front. If I collected football I would really like this set. Front has everything you could want in a card. Back doesn't but I'm sure lots of people will complain about it so I won't. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I miss Score for baseball, but if this is the kind of designs they are putting out, maybe it's for the best. Too much white. Same photo on the front and back. Weird way of putting the photo on the front. Just all around blah card. ” -davidhandberry

“ He had the huge catch with the Packers a few years ago. ” -carthage44

“ clean cut and sleek. picked up a handful of packs of these in 2016. i do like a set with college players. ” -DarkSide830

“ Same picture front & back. Too much blank space. Junk. ” -cjjt

“ Underwhelmed. Not a bad looking card, but just not catching my eye. And for the love of God, why use the same photo on the front and the back. As a major card company.... shame on you. ” -parsley24

“ zzzzzzZZZZzzzzz.... ” -IndyBean17

“ Nice design, the white borders are a little too big though. I guess you can't expect much from a Score base set though. ” -bigsmooth

“ Nice clean card, and i always like action shots. Sometimes cards depend too much on the colours of the team, but the Rams navy blue makes this one very nice to look at. ” -Ratsdm

Set: 2000 Epoch Pro-Baseball Stickers (Rate)

Card: #37 Masahiko Kaneda

“ Cool. A Japanese baseball sticker. That's different. I like it! ” -switzr1

“ That ain't Topps. ” -RoundtheDiamond87

“ Not my cup of tea. Looks cool enough if I was collecting these stickers, but I know nothing of this. ” -muskie027

“ This card looks much older than 2000. ” -carthage44

“ The picture is awful. Straight on flash all washed out. Neat to see some of our cards from overseas though. ” -parsley24

“ Ride the Wave! The Orix Blue Wave, that is. They couldn't survive the loss of Ichiro to the USA and went under in the early 2000s, merging with the Kintetsu Buffaloes. Now the team is known as the Orix Buffaloes. I haven't gone to a game in Osaka, yet, as my only trip to that city was a quick bullet train transfer. Hopefully in the future, though. And if any of you baseball fans ever get to Japan, be sure to go to a game. Such a different experience from games in the USA! ” -kents_stuff

“ Ranford and others from north should be very happy with this card. ” -NJDevils

“ The design is ok. I do like simple elements on card fronts. The photo just ruins the sticker (Boring!!) ” -AnalogKid

“ Interesting a Japanese baseball sticker. Cool a team name would be nice. ” -captkirk42

“ Even if I could read it, I don't think I would like it. ” -cnangle

Set: 2010 SPx - Rookie Materials (Rate)

Card: #RM-JC Jimmy Clausen

“ Man, can you imagine touching a piece of memorabilia that Jimmy Clausen wore? That's about "as close as you can get" to greatness. ” -OCHawkeye

“ Big fan of anything with the a Golden Domer, though Clausen was kind of a disappointment. Dig the card design, from the symmetry to the color scheme. Only knock: the "relic" was just from a rookie photo shoot. Seems like a cheap way to get a relic. Still, if I collected football, I would definitely pick this one up. ” -mycardboardhabit

“ This would have been a great card if it had been an NFL card. The design is really nice, and it's numbered, which makes everything better. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Poor Notre Dame QB's. ” -carthage44

“ Not a bad looking card at all , but it does contain the two words I hate to see on a memorabilia card "photo shoot ". ” -uncaian

“ I like game-used cards. This is a nice design too bad anyone that bought this card in 2010 did not make a good investment since Clausen did horribly in the NFL. ” -davidhandberry

“ "Event-used"...."rookie photo shoot". I guess that's better than an MEM card that includes something that is a replica of an item used in a photo shoot. I know people collect MEM cards, but some of them go a little to far in their interpretation memorabilia (IMHO). ” -cnangle

“ Why does Mel Kiper still have a job? ” -SFC Temple

“ Cool numbered MEM card. I like college football a lot more than pro. Somebody will probably complain that there's no helmet logo, but Notre Dame helmets have no logos. ” -switzr1

“ All sorts of reasons I don't like this card. Relic (jersey card), Rookie in College Uniform no mention of Pro team. Odd for a later (after 2000) GU card the back makes a big production of it being a GU card with the statement of Congratulations and not much else. ” -captkirk42

“ Beautiful relic card. Jimmy was one of my favorite Notre Dame QBs. Really thought he was gonna have a great NFL career. Oh well. Go Irish! ” -mkaz80

“ Mel Kiper had said he would retire if Clausen wasn't successful as an NFL quarterback. I kinda like Kiper, so I'm glad he reneged on that promise. ” -Brimose

“ One of the (many) players proving that Mel Kiper Jr. knows little more than the rest of us about who will succeed in the NFL. ” -IndyBean17

“ Looks like last month's news. ” -RoundtheDiamond87

“ Love it! I am partial to Notre Dame, but even if it wasn't, there is a lot to like here. I like the picture, and since it is an insert, the netting on the sides adds a nice effect. The SN is cool and the coloring nails Notre Dame's. The initials in the jersey is icing on the cake. Too bad Clausen didn't end up half as good as this card! ” -muskie027

“ Did Jimmy Clausen ever take a snap in the NFL? ” -rmitchell6700

“ Like how the jersey spells out his initials ” -Bargunmaster

“ Cool that it's a limited print memorabilia card. Otherwise, though, it's just OK for me. ” -kents_stuff

Set: 2001 Bowman's Best (Rate)

Card: #144 Ben Diggins

“ Looks like it might be the technology used on the 2000-01 NBA set...kind of like a refractor but textured. It looks really impressive in hand but scans don't always capture it. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I prefer the natural backgrounds ” -RoundtheDiamond87

“ The lazers are weird and out of place. ” -carthage44

“ Not much to like about this card. Hate the background. Hate the white around the player. Weird spot for the Dodgers logo. On the back the size of things doesn't make sense to me. I have never seen a card where the personal information is bigger than everything else. I could keep going and going but suffice it to say I will not be running out to get this set. ” -davidhandberry

“ Some collectors I have met in my local area go nuts over Bowman stuff. Me, I'll pass. ” -Gunny

“ There has got to be a list that someone has for players whose names sound dirty. Kind of weird graphics, not so sure about the glow. Really not sure if this was one of Bowman's "best". ” -parsley24

“ Less is more Bowman & most times better. Nice back ,not diggin the front though. ” -uncaian

“ Mr. Diggins has quite a stride. Big dude. Former 1st rounder who only appeared in 5 games in his career. As far as the card is concerned, I approve of 2001 Bowman's Best. Fun design. ” -mkaz80

“ As much as I like the front, that is how much I don't like the back except for the large number. ” -NJDevils

“ Very nice chrome-y card set. Great scan. Wouldn't mind some of these in my collection. ” -vrooomed

“ Wouldn't it be funny if the set could be named what many are probably thinking....Bowman's Worst. The funny thing is, if they just take out the computer junk and the sideways multi-colored pyramid, then focused the background in so it was an action shot, this card would actually be pretty good. Add a position marker and it would be great. ” -muskie027

“ Diggins...sounds like the name of my next dog. Come here, Diggins! ” -RoundtheDiamond87

“ Actually I pretty nice looking card for a "Bowman's Best". I usually find the "Best" like it's Topps "Finest" kin to be far from "Best" or "Finest" most of the time. This is an OK front, the background with the lasers are a bit much. Back is very plain OK so he was a rookie in 2000 and didn't play, could they have shown his Minor league stats? Or College stats at least? ” -captkirk42

“ He has more career hits 1 than wins 0. ” -kirkscards

“ Always liked the Bowman's Best. Not the usual cheap looking cards. ” -KMack

“ Great action photo. This is a case where I almost like a graphic background...almost. ” -cnangle

“ It's fine. I don't remember this set or player though. ” -switzr1

Set: 1994 SkyBox Star Trek IV The Voyage Home Cinema Collection (Rate)

Card: #60 Slingshot

“ Looks like they are at the Aquarium on the back. ” -carthage44

“ I enjoyed this movie, a nice fun Star Trek adventure. I had no idea these cards existed, good one! ” -Gunny

“ Not a big fan of this card. ” -olerud363

“ One of the good Star Trek movies. ” -RoyalChief

“ Nope ” -parsley24

“ Power failures always happen at the most inconvenient moments. ” -dilemma19

“ May normal size cards live long and prosper. ” -jayoneill

“ Live Long And Prosper. Except I'm not a big fan of these movie "widescreen" cards which are basically tall-boys turned on their sides. Other than my beef with oddball sizes it is a cool card set. ” -captkirk42

“ What's the over-under on member comments citing "Live Long and Prosper"? I'm going with 4-and-a-half, and taking the over. ” -kents_stuff

“ Skybox did Star Trek? Who knew? Was this an odd shaped card, it has a very long look to it. As far as a non-sport, not bad. Early Skybox always was interesting in the sport world, wouldn't have expected anything different for non-sport. ” -muskie027

Set: 1995 Classic Assets Gold (Rate)

Card: #50 Checklist #2

“ Another disappointing Bengals draft choice from the '90s. This guys supposed to be an absolute stud in the NFL. Oh well... ” -mkaz80

“ I always hated checklist cards. That being said the least despicable ones are the ones that have a player photo on them. This is Classic so I don't expect much and that is what you get. ” -davidhandberry

“ He had so much promise but injuries (ACL tear, torn rotator cuff, broken wrist and dislocated knee cap) derailed his career. ” -carthage44

“ Didnt see the "T" in the logo. Thought it was a benchwarmers parallel that i didnt have yet. ” -parsley24

“ I miss the vintage style checklists. ” -jayoneill

“ Not a fan of Classic games cards. Nice looking front. Since it is a checklist card having the player on the front identified would be nice. I miss the days of real checklist cards. Prefer them to be the last few numbered cards at the back of the set. Giving them photos on the front gets them lost in the set. ” -captkirk42

“ Bust.. ” -SFC Temple

Set: 2011 Panini Stickers (Rate)

Card: #153 Rashad Jennings

“ Foil or black border? Who can tell with foil. Good scan, lackluster card. I don't know why card companies keep thinking a player cutout in front of some digital background is a good idea, as I don't remember encountering anyone who likes that concept. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Thought it looked like an awesome card, then realized it was a sticker. Not a fan of stickers. I have a few in my collection but they tend to be flimsy and hard to keep in good shape. ” -davidhandberry

“ Great front. Lousy back. Remind me again...what's the card number here? ” -kents_stuff

“ The double logo is overkill. ” -carthage44

“ I do like the size of the number. ” -NJDevils

“ Actually a good looking card/sticker. I would totally put this on my mead 5 star trapper keeper in middle school. ” -parsley24

“ Nice sticker. I tend to forget that Panini started with stickers, or at least did stickers well enough that they really should stick with them. Pardon the pun. ” -captkirk42

“ I really enjoyed filling up the sticker books as a kid. Collecting stickers on their own? Not sure I'm a fan. ” -SFC Temple

“ Okay, considering it's Panini. ” -cjjt

Set: 1888 W. Duke, Sons & Co. Snapshots from Puck (N128) (Rate)

Card: #NNO Not Used To It

“ This might be a record for shortest time from adding photo to making RCOTD. I see cnangle added this one less than a month ago. The print is too small for me to read, so I have no idea what this set is all about. ” -switzr1

“ Old so good, but what the heck is going on here? What is up with the waiters face? Is he a fish man? Looks like something from the X-Files. Maybe the words explain it, but I can't get them to focus in. Still, anything from 1800's looks cool. They could have a set of dog crap piles, but you put them in the tobacco setting and I think I'd like it. ” -muskie027

“ 1888? Wow! ” -jayoneill

“ OH! well, its a card. Not a very good one, but it’s a card ” -Bargunmaster

“ Not sure what this is but it looks racist. ” -carthage44

“ This is my all-time favorite Random Card of the Day. ” -Doe MG

“ Wow, a 19th century card. That makes this is my all-time favorite Random Card of the Day. ” -Doe MG

“ Yes! Finally a 19th century tobacco card. I really like the artwork in this set. I think the cards are supposed to be funny. I guess you had to be there. The images are taken from "Puck" magazine which was a satirical publication from 1871 to 1918. The scenes are a satirical representation of societal opinion and, like in this card, are often not politically correct by today's standards. ” -cnangle

“ HOLY BATMAN! What an awesome artifact. LOVE it. So wrong and stereotyping. Truly, an amazing collectible. ” -cjjt

“ Nice artwork, but I think 1880's humor is over-rated. But the concept of a tobacco card back then was novel, and kudos to those marketing folks who came up with it. ” -kents_stuff

“ I remember getting this card when I opened a couple packs back in '89. ” -NJDevils

“ Interesting vintage card, to say the least. Par for the course though at the time, I suppose. ” -IfbBirdsCards

“ Good looking historical card, kind of racist now. One of those hard cards to justify having it other than it is history. ” -parsley24

“ The 19th century cards are almost enough to get me to buy something that isn't a baseball card. This is a beautiful and fascinating card. And, of course, terribly offensive, which is a bit of a problem.... ” -Vvvergeer

“ not really sure whats going on here but the date is 1888 that alone is pretty sweet ” -Thunderfoot

“ Nice vintage vintage non-sport card. Very non PC by today's standards. ” -captkirk42

Set: 1995 SP (Rate)

Card: #157 Steve Bono

“ How I miss 90's QB's. ” -carthage44

“ Very nice cards. Smart design both front and back. ” -KMack

“ I like this set. Nice pictures on both sides. The name on the front is a little lost, that I think is the only negative for me. ” -davidhandberry

“ Classy looking card/set. Especially like the large action image on the back. This also reminds me of another classic Chris Berman-ism: Steve "I Got You Babe" Bono. ” -mkaz80

“ Steve Bono Ranked #179th all time passing yards. ” -kirkscards

“ Good to see a Chief! Good photos on this card. Front is clean and focuses on the player, back is decent on info and has another nice game photo used. A solid B card for a C- player. ” -Brimose

“ I really liked SP when they first came out. Still a good looking card. ” -cnangle

“ Where's Cher? I got you babe..... ” -Gunny

“ For as much as I loved Upper Deck base sets, I never really got into any of there sub sets. Not digging the mall name on this and a lot of space is dedicated on the left to the Upper Deck branding. Also, full stats please. ” -muskie027

“ I like this design. Don't think I've seen one before. Personally I think it would be better had they just landscaped the whole front instead of running text vertically up the sides. But I can live with what they did. ” -kents_stuff

“ Good looking card, disappointment in a qb. ” -parsley24

“ I love up-close-and-personal action shots like this one, but not keen on player info minimized while card company maximized. ” -Sportzcommish

“ Another football set I both like and dislike. The arrow pyramid thing is too large has to go. Sideways vertical writing a no-no. Player name too small, where is the team name? Logo? Player position? Back photo way too large only one year of stats. Very little info at all. ” -captkirk42

“ Not a bad card. Very impressed with two different photos and not much clutter on the front. ” -NJDevils
