Random Card of the Day

Thursday, May 26, 2016

Set: 2003 Upper Deck (Rate)

Card: #8 Earl Snyder

“ 19 MLB games. 12 hits, 1 of which was a HR. 6 organizations. At least he made it to the bigs! Good for him. ” -vrooomed

“ Wow, 36th round draft pick. Not much of a star rookie I would say. ” -carthage44

“ I'm not sure what to think about this set. I have some of these and it is an OK design. hard to read the "Star Rookie" tag on front. For vets it is their name and jersey number there in the hard to read foil. Man I wish the card companies had never used the foil lettering for base sets. ” -captkirk42

“ He looks like someone who heard something funny while sitting on the bench and he's not part of it and his eyes are saying: Oh well... ” -JimStaub

“ Nice front design. Simple and uncomplicated. One tweak I'd make is move the red name/team banner farther down. I'd like to see some stats on the back. So, apparently all it takes is to play 18 games and bat .200 to be called a Star. ” -C2Cigars

Set: 1999 Pacific Paramount (Rate)

Card: #180 Hugh Douglas

“ Meh. Not really sure what Pacific was going for here...I can't tell if it's supposed to be a whiteout theme (like SP Authentic) or if it's just a washed out scan. I don't know enough about football to know if the shadow border around his name is team colors or just randomly different. If it's the former, that's not too bad, but if it's the latter, then I would not like that at all. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ This may be the worst card ever. I'm hard-pressed to find anything redeeming about it! ” -dilemma19

“ Nothing paramount about this design. ” -carthage44

“ Looks like he's playing freeze tag. ” -NJdevils

“ Subtract some points for foil lettering, at least this you can sort of read. Can't tell is that the team name under the player name? Needs clear team name and team logo would be nice. Moving on to the back mostly somewhat OK except obvious only one year of stats, minus several million since the stats are vertical not horizontal. Ugly looking card did I say it was ugly? NO? Well it is Ugly. ” -captkirk42

“ I love the Pacific sets from this era, but the color foil parallels in some of the sets are enough to drive a person mad. ” -switzr1

“ Do the Hustle! Do do do do do do do..... ( I got nothin') ” -Kaline6

Set: 2010 Panini Crown Royale (Rate)

Card: #68 LaDainian Tomlinson

“ Still feels wrong to see him as a Jet ” -volbox

“ Really cool design. I normally don't like cards where the player is superimposed over a computer generated background but these Crown Royale cards are really nice. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ A very regal card! I don't follow football very closely, but have certainly heard of Tomlinson. Although Panini does a good job of minimizing it with theor baseball products, it really makes a difference when actual team names and logos are portrayed on cards. ” -dilemma19

“ I assume this is die-cut. I love die-cut cards as inserts or special sets. ” -wax_house

“ Over all the design is OK. I am not a fan of the Crown Royal di-cuts, At least you can read all the info on the front. That is a rarity for modern cards. The back would be much better if more than one year stats. Way too much wasted space at top in the design. ” -captkirk42

“ Really dislike the scans that still have the soft sleeve on the card. ” -carthage44

“ Looks like it's from a bottle of booze ” -NJDevils

“ H-I-D-E-O-U-S. ” -UKboogie

Set: 2013 Topps Museum Collection - Copper (Rate)

Card: #81 Evan Longoria

“ Nice card...GREAT scan. Unusual SN...424? Seems like an odd choice but I like odd stuff. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Super boring. ” -carthage44

“ Sigh! In a vacuum, this is a pretty nice card. Too bad there are millions of similar designs rendering this one dull and forgettable. Not the best photo by the way. I know you can do better, Topps! ” -dilemma19

“ Nice card. Not sure why it is numbered /424 though. Seems unusual. I think a Rays fan would be very happy to own this one. ” -switzr1

“ I do like the way the player foreground picture bursts out of the photo border. ” -rmpaq5

Set: 2015 Topps WWE Undisputed - Autographs Black (Rate)

Card: #UA-AB Alundra Blayze

“ SN1! Cool! I love SN1s for some reason. Random thought, I wonder how long it takes a wrestler (or actor, etc) to perfect an autograph for the stage name they use? I didn't perfect my signature until I was in my mid-20s and I've been signing the same name my whole life. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ The only cool thing about this card is that it is serial numbered 1 of 50. ” -carthage44

“ I started watching WWF after she left I guess. I've heard of her but never saw any matches she was in. But the card looks very cool and the fact it's numbered makes it even better! ” -Joshua825

“ AKA Madusa ,nice auto. not a bad looking card & one of the best lady wrestlers of all time. ” -uncaian

“ Nice change of pace for the card of the day. An autograph card. I'm not huge on wrastling but many times I've seen cards like this one and feel like I want to at least pursue some of the autographs. ” -captkirk42

“ We don't get many autograph cards as RCOTD. And it's Wrestling too. I like it! ” -switzr1

Set: 1991-92 Topps (Rate)

Card: #338 Andy Moog

“ Early 90s were a great time for cards. Name's a little small on the front but otherwise great design. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ My only familiarity with Andy Moog is due to playing NHL 94 on the Sega Genesis. I'm a fan of this style of Topps cards with it's small colored border and the main banner. Simple and sleek for the 90s. The back is more of a mess but it can't take away from the nice front. ” -ketchupman36

“ Oops! We forgot to design the hockey set this year. Oh well, just re-use the baseball layout. ” -dilemma19

“ MOOOOOOOOOOG!!!! ” -carthage44

“ A nice design. Topps used the same front design for baseball and football in 1991. Love the colorful back design. I have none of these. Only O-Pee-Chee was available at the BX that year. ” -C2Cigars

“ Nice design (the 1991 baseball design at least for the front). Gives all the vital info. Has team logo but not team name. Back: I like the colors the design is OK. Only thing missing is a player bio, but where is there room? ” -captkirk42

“ The streaking skate effect on the back is the highlight of this set. ” -rmpaq5

Set: 1994 CAT Scale Super Trucks Limited Edition Series Eight (Rate)

Card: #09 1979 Kenworth

“ Way cool. I'm not sure if all these are entered correctly, but as far as I know the Database is the only place you can find a checklist for any of these sets. I don't have this card but I wish I did. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Pretty sure that truck is not for hire. ” -UKboogie

“ Nice cards I guess. Eddie Crock seems like a good guy. Love the border on the back. ” -dilemma19

“ These are cool if you like trucks I guess. ” -carthage44

“ Mama always said. Never trust a man named Crock. ” -RoyalChief

“ Cool card. Real random card for today. My only suggestion for improvement for this set/series would be to identify the truck on the front. ” -captkirk42

“ Whoa...Optimus Prime has his own card! ” -rmpaq5

“ The tough to find Eddie Crock... what a great day when I added this to my collection! LOL ” -SFC Temple

Set: 1955-56 Parkhurst (Rate)

Card: #114 Frank Hurley

“ Nice vintage card .Wrestling at its "purest" ,better than the garbage we have today. Great wrestlers buried by ridiculous storylines. ” -uncaian

“ Amazing card. Love wrestling, just not that into wrestling cards. May have to start after seeing something this cool. ” -RoyalChief

“ His head looks like it was photo shopped on. ” -carthage44

“ Ah Vintage...WRASTLIN' Oh interesting card number on front. ” -captkirk42

“ Biggest wrestler I ever saw!!! Seriously, a great card and a wonderful back. ” -NJDevils

“ Typical 1950s Parkhurst quality. Quite simple design. I prefer card numbers on the back of cards. Apparently, Hurley had a short career; never heard of him. Interesting tidbit about Killer Kowalski on back. I do remember Kowalski. ” -C2Cigars

“ I love the proportion of the wrestler to the overall ring size. I never thought I would have liked a wrestling card so much! ” -muskie027

Set: 1991 Topps - Micro (Rate)

Card: #786 Eric Plunk

“ Is this card really that small? Seems almost stamp sized! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I like micro/mini cards now. Back in the day, I hate to say, I threw them away!! My OCD was even worse then, and basically, they weren't even!! ” -RoyalChief

“ Rated #1 in a recent "Worst to Sort" poll. These cards are a pain to handle. ” -DaClyde

“ Uggg. Micros. Who was the audience? Ken dolls? ” -cjjt

“ I know he's in his pitching motion but it looks like he's taking a pinup position. Give me sexyness, click! ” -JimStaub

“ Plunk aka one of the ugliest baseball players of all-time! ” -carthage44

“ At the time these came out I liked the nostalgic idea of these. Remind me of the late 60s early 70s stamps and "four in ones" Topps would make. Now days with the proliferation of minis in just about every Topps set and some of the sets from other card makers I am done with tiny cards that are more than 1/2 the standard size. ” -captkirk42

“ So tiny, and so many of the cards in my factory set were terribly miscut. With this set, it was almost as though Topps was saying "we don't have to keep up with the other manufacturers, because we have 40 years of history"....but they abandoned their tradition the very next year in favor of white card stock and colorful backs. ” -dilemma19

“ I can proudly say that I have none of these. ” -NJdevils

“ When it comes to a point where you have to consider using a magnifying glass to see stats....for me it's a pass on that. I love minis but this is beyond that point! ” -Joshua825

Set: 2002 Upper Deck Diamond Connection (Rate)

Card: #84 Jason Kendall

“ Blah.... ” -carthage44

“ If the text was all in real ink contrasting with the background color it could be read. This foil junk writing is difficult to impossible to read. His name looks like "Jon Kondoll" Can't even figure out what the Upper Deck logo says. Back is OK could be done better, but will do. ” -captkirk42

“ Design is not bad, but the name is horrible to read in the scans. I assume it is better in person. ” -CluelessJoe

“ I think he's a catcher. The "C" right beside his face proves it if you weren't sure about his attire. UD wanted you to know his position, there's one thing bigger than the "C" and it's the picture. The exact same "C" on the back is a 0 or maybe an 8. ” -JimStaub

“ Nice card (foil notwithstanding) of an underrated player. ” -dilemma19
