Set: 1999 Pacific Revolution - Foul Pole (Rate)

Card: #13 Bernie Williams



“ I miss Pacific! ” -trauty

“ Man Pacific had some innovative card designs. Wish other companies nowadays (looking at you Topps) would think outside the box sometimes. ” -rmpaq5

“ Who else thinks Bernie should have received more HOF support? Even though the Yankees teams were otherwise loaded, I don't know if they win as many WS as they did without him. Don't like the Yankees but have never disliked Bernie. ” -Brimose

“ This would be cool if it was actually part of a foul pole but it's just a fabricated net. ” -carthage44

“ Bernie looks to be in a state of con-fusion on the back. ” -sahal694

“ Way too busy for me. The net just adds to the confusion. ” -IfbBirdsCards

“ I'm not sure what I'm seeing here...is this a net relic or just designed to look like a net? ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Another coincidence card? Comments open on Bernie's birthday! Nice. ” -dsorek

“ Neat, first card I've ever seen with its own air conditioner. ” -NJDevils

“ Well, 1999 was a really great year to be a collector, both Football, and Baseball card manufacturers started releasing these beautiful cards. Absolute and Pacific Revolution was two of my favorite Sports Card Issues and 1999 Pacific Revolution was a must have for any collector. I really miss those Pacific brands because they released some very rare cards. I still have one of the Rarest Michael Vick Re Cards ever made. The 2001 Vanguard #02/10! Now as for Berne Williams never was a big fan. just one of those I never got into. I did love this set and I have three of them, ” -The House Of Cards

“ This would have been better for hockey IMO. I don't think of nets when I think of a foul pole, I think of a metal screen. ” -rmitchell6700

“ Huh? What? Here's a thought, Pacific--save some us all some money and make this card 60% of the normal width. Or even better, give us photos that are 40% bigger than these are. ” -kents_stuff

“ It's cool, but a lot of wasted space. ” -muskie027

Set: 1993 Select (Rate)

Card: #255 Pat Kelly



“ I had no idea Select had more of a heritage than a single NASCAR release until I joined the Database. Then I learned it was older than I thought, and produced by Score! It's now been produced by Score, Pinnacle and Panini. I love when heritage brands are kept alive over the years. By the way, great photo! I was so preoccupied talking about the brand I neglected the card itself. A perfect shot captured at the zenith of his jump (see what I did there?) And a pleasing green border, long my favorite color. I suspect Select may have been meant to compete head to head with Stadium Club. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Stealth appearance by Mark McGwire. This card could also use a better scan so it's not as washed out ” -ketchupman36

“ A frustrated karma retaliated by dropping a dwarf on Mark McGwire. ” -revnorb

“ An attractive design, though I'd have switched the greens. The action picture sequence is pure baseball. ” -Sportzcommish

“ Not a big fan of these cards, makes it look off center with the border only on 2 sides. Nice photo though. McGwire sliding in I see. ” -IfbBirdsCards

“ On one card he's turning two double plays that both McGwire and Canseco are trying to break up. That is a lot or Roid Rage to jump over. ” -rmpaq5

“ The levitating Pat Kelly. Or maybe it's the force field around Mark McGwire forcing him into the air. Either way, nice action shot. And the back photo has Canseco. I bet they were taken in the same game. Not bad for an alternate to the flagship Score set. ” -vrooomed

“ Haha Nice shot of McGwire photo bombing. ” -RoyalChief

“ This is a cool card with the photo bomb of McGwire on the front and Canseco on the back. It looks like they were taken during the same game. I wonder who was pitching that induced double play balls that day? ” -Brimose

“ This set design is starting to grow on me. At first the all green didn't sit with me well, but early 1990s were still a pretty simple time, but were in the process of changing the hobby forever. For the front the team name really should be on there team logo optional but is always nice. Back pretty good except I prefer full stats and no picture over one year stats with a nice color picture. Can't tell with the photos but might be the same play with the back being a few seconds before the front. ” -captkirk42

“ Cool action shot, terrible set. ” -carthage44

“ Awesome action shot from an underrated set. Lots of good photography throughout the checklist. ” -mkaz80

“ Back when double plays could be broken up with a slide... ” -rmitchell6700

“ This is a laaaame set. ” -wax_house

“ As a kid I loved this set. As an adult... I still love it. ” -jupiterhill

“ Never liked the odd angles on front and back. ” -NJDevils

“ "That's nice Big Mac, but can your steroids allow you to sit in an invisible air chair while turning two?" ” -sahal694

“ I bought two packs of these in 1993, one of the last items I bought before my 22 year hiatus. I was looking at them the other day and asking myself, do I like these. 24 years later, undecided. The picture on this card is cool though. Pat Kelly in the air with a legend of the game underneath. ” -muskie027

“ More early 90's cards of McGwire and Canseco. Did they make enough of these? Convenient how they were able to combine them on to one card here. ” -kents_stuff

Set: 2013-14 Upper Deck Overtime (Rate)

Card: #76 Michael Latta



“ I've never seen this design before, but I like it! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Should be name overkill. ” -carthage44

“ as a bonus pack card it's ok, but it wouldn't fly as a paid product card ” -mbarlow092

“ LET'S GO CAPS! The season's getting closer. Latta wasn't with us long, now he's with the 'Yotes. ” -IfbBirdsCards

“ CAPS LOVE for the RCotD. 'Nuff said. ” -captkirk42

“ Seems like a lot of wasted space to me. And a head shot should be straight in the camera, not a subsection of the action photo on the front of the card. ” -kents_stuff

“ Can't say that I've ever heard of Upper Deck Overtime, or of Michael Latta. ” -rmitchell6700

“ This would be a great card if the name went where the OVERTIME branding is. Then they just need to get rid of the OVERTIME branding image and add a team logo in the corner. Yes, it would have been great. Instead, it is just, eh. ” -muskie027

Set: 2004 Bowman - Gold (Rate)

Card: #36 Jason Kendall



“ I was on a road trip hitting various major and minor league games back in 1999 and made a stop in Pittsburgh...and was at the game he snapped his ankle. One of the most surreal memories I have. ” -rmpaq5

“ Not bad, not great either. ” -DarkSide830

“ These cards are too thick. ” -carthage44

“ Bowman, with the fake signatures, would look better if that section of the card wasn't "faded" to make the signature stand out. I'm glad they finally did away with it all and dropped the fake autos in recent years. Young players weren't taught cursive in school anyway, and don't know how to write a proper signature, so I don't even want their autograph, real or fake. ” -switzr1

“ I remember buying several blasters of this back in the day. I don't like the gold cards mostly because they are thicker than the base. Not a fan of that. ” -mkaz80

“ Kind of plain, but nice card overall. Back looks great. ” -Doc Floyd

“ The chamfered tab look is eye-catching yet not distracting, and gives some freedom for photo choices (especially well illustrated in this example with the ball above his head). But I am really not a fan of any black border anywhere on the card. It makes it so hard to keep them display worthy with almost any handling whatsoever. It looks like this particular example likewise suffers from that, especially on the right edge. Otherwise I like the design, though. ” -kents_xtras_trd_sell

“ A team logo would have made this a very nice card ” -NJDevils

“ Is it me, or does he look like Colin Farrell? ” -YoRicha

“ Love some of the color parallels! I think I missed this set somehow..... ” -Joshua825

“ Oddly I like the 2000s era of Bowman designs. I can't stand their numbering for the prospects and rookie prospects and prepreprospects with the PP and DP and DCPPPCDs and whatnots that they do. Like this design and even the "gold" variant that we see here. Back is OK as backs go. ” -captkirk42

Set: 2016-17 SMG Ntreev Superstar Black Edition (Rate)

Card: #SBCBK-067-N Ji-Hyuk Ryu



“ Not too bad, a little too much wasted space on the bottom. Why is the team name in standard alphabet while everything else is in Japanese? Looks like he racked up 10 Q-bert signs in the season reported. I wouldn't mind collecting one of these sets. ” -muskie027

“ An absolutely attractive card until one sees the resemblance to Panini on the back, i.e. same picture (just cropped and enlarged). Is SMG a subsidiary of Panini? ” -Sportzcommish

“ I can kind of figure out the stats on the back. ” -carthage44

“ I could do with collecting a few KBO/NPB cards. Among Doosan's most notable players is that bum Hyun-Soo Kim. (whom i used to like, but now realize is just a terrible player) ” -DarkSide830

“ Now that's cool. Something I have not seen. ” -RoyalChief

“ Cool, but why is everything but his name in English? It's like collecting OPC! ” -switzr1

“ "It,s going, it's going it's....Mmmm that stadium dog looks delicious." ” -YoRicha

“ I like the writing going along the side and towards the back of the batting helmet. I found out that the Doosan Bears were founded by a brewery back in 1982, and were known as the OB Bears. That's cool. Excellent card!!! ” -CollectingAfterDeath

“ Nice NBL? (Nippon Baseball League?) card. ” -captkirk42

“ Not much I can read on it, and never heard of the guy, but it still works. The only thing I don't like is what I'm guessing is only one season of stats. Awesome looking card. ” -Doc Floyd

“ I like this design. Good picture too. ” -IfbBirdsCards

Set: 2003 Fleer Tradition - Throwbacks Memorabilia (Rate)

Card: #TB-MA Marcus Allen



“ I still like relics...even for football. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Somewhat boring. ” -muskie027

“ In general this typifies an excellent card with an action photo that is not cluttered with other players, and a design that includes player, team, and card company logo. What I'm not too keen on is the patch. Maybe if it only occupied a slender space as a banner I'd be fine with it. ” -Sportzcommish

“ Nice design, except for all the yellow. ” -olerud363

“ Too bad its not in red. ” -RoyalChief

“ These Game Worn jersey cards should be more valuable than the jersey cards that the players wear for a few hours at an event. ” -carthage44

“ The front of this "relic" card would be better suited as a regular base card. The jersey swatch should be centered. I also find it quite humorous that a black piece of "Throwback" jersey for the Raiders. Now I don't mind the back so much since it serves it purpose for a relic card. I do however think that from day one all relic (jersey, Game Used whatever you want to call them) cards should be serial numbered. IN the early days they rarely did that, even today many relic cards are not serial numbered. ” -captkirk42

“ I like the front of this card, The relic is a focal point, yet it doesn't detract from the player photo. I like the white photo frame, but maybe the name and team should have been printed in black. Apparently Allen is an "NFL legend", but Fleer couldn't even write *one sentence* about him. ” -dilemma19

“ I like it! Great image, simple design... ” -nubala

“ Watching him run over the Redskins in the Super Bowl is one of my best memories from the 80's. ” -rmitchell6700

“ Never was a fan of "Game worn" anything. Too, too gimmicky in my humble opinion. ” -YoRicha

Set: 2011 Topps - Throwback Logo Manufactured Patch (Rate)

Card: #TLMP-BP Buster Posey



“ I know I'm apparently one of the few, but I actually like manu-patches. To me, they are just a different card material...I already have paper, plastic and metal, why not cloth? ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Cards like this are clear signs of too many cards being released. It looks sharp, but would be more collectible if the manu-relic had some relevance to the subject. Posey probably wasn't even alive in 1977. ” -dilemma19

“ Hopefully my first comment that got cut off doesn't get posted. I'm doing this from my phone and got sidetracked. I believe these cards were inserted one per blaster. I know some may not consider this a memorabilia card, but unfortunately my dad does, meaning I have yet to successfully trade for this card from him. That being said, if anyone has an extra one of these for trade I would love to work something out! ” -jasongerman9

“ Gotta love the throwback. ” -RoyalChief

“ These were only available in retail packs which were really nice cards to get in a retail packs. ” -carthage44

“ Has the look of a framed picture. I like the logo. Very nice. ” -CollectingAfterDeath

“ Manupatch. Normally I don't like them, but when they are a logo or a good design they are OK I guess. ” -captkirk42

“ Sweet. ” -Doe MG

“ I actually enjoy these manufactured patches. If only there weren't a billion of them. ” -suomibear8

“ Pretty scugly looking card. Not really a fan "manufactured" memorabilia. Nope. ” -AnalogKid

“ These are the nicest logo cards I've ever seen! I'm adding some to my Want List now! ” -Sportzcommish

“ I really don't like it. This is just creating stuff for the sake of putting out stuff. ” -muskie027

Set: 2014 Topps Update - Gold (Rate)

Card: #US-204 Chris Capuano



“ I love serially numbered cards. I think it's an addiction. I've got more than 3200 for the NBA alone, and I have hundreds in NASCAR, and a handful in everything else. Yes, I even have baseball and football SN cards! Whenever I get some money in COMC, I usually go to the SN listing and pick off as many cheap ones as I can until I run out of money. It doesn't matter who is on the card, as long as I don't already have a copy. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I like the gold enhancement, but I prefer their original base set design as one of their best ever. ” -Sportzcommish

“ Since Topps flagship has gone borderless the past two years, "gold" cards haven't been the same. Too bad; I always enjoyed collecting these parallels. ” -mkaz80

“ I love the photos like these. Pitcher about to release the ball. Some of the best faces you will ever see. ” -RoyalChief

“ I followed this guy because he was once a Met. This is a nice-looking card, even if he's playing for the wrong NY team. ” -NYMHall

“ I think these cards need more wavy lines. ” -carthage44

“ Great card! Good photo, great back, and it's Topps. What more could you want? ” -cnangle

“ OH a modern Baseball card had to ruin the Random Card party. LOL. OK so this is the Gold parallel. I prefer this kind of parallel than those subtle only 12 year old kids and those with 20/20 vision can tell the difference parallels. They really shouldn't give parallels serial numbers, even the cute numbered to the year the cards were issued in. ” -captkirk42

“ Can't go wrong with a gold border. Would have looked better as a Jonathan Schoop card, imo. Go Orioles!!! ” -CollectingAfterDeath

“ The gold cards are nice, but I find it annoying they go up in serial numbers every year. ” -IfbBirdsCards

“ I forgot Capuano had a stint with the Yanks until this RCOTD. Not a bad card. ” -muskie027

Set: 1974-75 O-Pee-Chee (Rate)

Card: #132 Gilles Gilbert



“ I love old cards! ” -muskie027

“ Cool! Now that I'm collecting hockey I really like this card a lot more than I would have a year ago at this time. 74-75 OPC is a set currently missing from my collection, but it won't even be 9 months for me in the hobby until a couple of days after this sees publication (1/15/17 is when I began actively collecting the NHL) ” -Billy Kingsley

“ This is maybe the coolest hockey card I've ever seen. I wish goalies still wore those masks. ” -switzr1

“ Fantastic design that shouts, "Hockey!" I truly was impressed with this and the use of the stick within the design is truly outstanding. ” -Sportzcommish

“ I love this card , one of few I had as a kid , hard to find mint. Nice set. ” -uncaian

“ The goalie gear was so minimal back then. My 7-year-old wears a chest protector that's bigger than that. Nice to see some vintage hockey in RCOTD. ” -olerud363

“ Never really followed hockey that close, but collected these cards. ” -kirkscards

“ Great card. Nice logo and photo. Of course, no one ever knows what he looks like. Could be AvsBruins behind the mask. ” -NJDevils

“ Well, I spit my coffee out when I saw that. Nightmares tonight for sure. ” -RoyalChief

“ I absolutely LOVE the old Friday the 13th goaltender masks! ” -carthage44

“ The good ol' day!. As a kid I would have loved this card! I don't do hockey anymore but if I did i think I would have to have this set. ” -cnangle

“ What you don't see is Mr. Gilbert sticking his tongue out at all of you people trying to thing of something clever or witty to say about the RCotD. Oh yes, even back then he knew about RCotD. ” -YoRicha

“ Yes Vintage Hockey OPC to boot. Goalie in full gear and mask plus plus. 1974 was when the Capitals started I would rather one of their cards had been picked. ” -captkirk42

“ Wicked mask! Well balanced and nice color combination on the front. I like it! ” -CollectingAfterDeath

“ This is one helluva hockey card! ” -mkaz80

“ Gotta love the classic Jason style goalie mask. ” -IfbBirdsCards

“ Today's goaltenders are protected better than a SWAT Team member. Look at the equipment they used to use. ” -rmpaq5

“ Yikes! Don't go near the lake if you see him! ” -Joshua825

Set: 1983 Donruss (Rate)

Card: #336 Steve Sax



“ Sax looks like he is about 14 years old here. What a great player. Remember him for the Yanks! I was excited when they brought him in. I can't get enough of the 80's cards, especially early 80's! ” -muskie027

“ Sax was the 1982 NL Rookie of the Year and one of the hottest young stars at the time. Had this whole set collected within a month of release. Hard to believe it's been over 34 years ago. ” -trauty

“ ...there's STILL a lot of unsolved murders in New York. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Except for the listless Sax the card is an attractive and effective card design - the logo is prominently displayed without it interfering and the bat and glove are used well to give player information. It's one of my favorite designs. ” -Sportzcommish

“ Donruss in the '80s wasn't too bad , nothing fancy but still classic looking .Sax looks like he wishes he was anywhere but on this card ! ” -uncaian

“ Were these licensed? ” -deporcoruña

“ Nice simple card. But, again, the back with its "recent major league performance" is simply bad. ” -NJDevils

“ Too cool!! ” -RoyalChief

“ Another early Donruss. Don't like this set because the design is almost identical to the '82 set. ” -IfbBirdsCards

“ Ah Donruss 1983 The first set of significant card size (larger than those small commemorative sets up to 50 cards or smaller sets that are 100 cards or less) where I purchased the entire boxed set. I think it was in late 84 or 85 that I actually bought it. I remember at the time the sets were only from $20-$30 for Fleer Donruss and Topps. I think I paid $20-$25 for the Donruss, Fleer was about the same maybe a little higher and the Topps I think was closer to $30 at the time. I should have bought all 3 at some point but never got the Fleer and Topps sets. Still building those sets like a zillion other sets. ” -captkirk42
