Set: 2012 Topps Mini (Rate)

Card: #93 Skip Schumaker

“ Good scan, decent design. Looks like he's dancing the Robot. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Topps is good. Minis, not so impressed. The 75 set was fine, but why miniaturize now? ” -Kaline6

“ Hi Five!!!! ” -RoyalChief

“ Like flagship topps but really tired of all the parallel sets especially the minis. I'm tending to stick only with minis from retro sets like A&G and the like. Too many minis. ” -captkirk42

“ Nice photo, but an otherwise unremarkable card of a forgettable player. According to the blurb, he's "scalded" two game-ending homers in his career. Sounds odd, but better than "spanked" two homers... ” -dilemma19

“ I like the front although I would prefer if the last name was a little easier to read. Silver on black is not great in my opinion. I'm not fond of the back design. Too much black and grey. ” -Mitch

“ Topps baseball has gone by the wayside. ” -carthage44

“ I have a "love / hate" relationship with minis'....I have some the size of a postage stamp, and others not much smaller then the actual card....I will always take them in a trade, but don't go out of my way to buy them either.... ” -engine614

Set: 1990 Topps (Rate)

Card: #515 Len Dykstra

“ My all time favorite baseball set. Seriously, I love this design. A friend just sent me a box full of them, which I have not yet added to my collection here on the Database. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I actually like these cards. The color scheme works for me, along with the fact, the card presents basic easy to read information. Kind of a shame how his life has gone, after his playing days ended. ” -engine614

“ Being a Mets fan, "Nails" was one of my favorites. A real sparkplug that energized the team. Rumor is he was a little too wild for the Mets, so they traded him. As for the card design, tops my list of ugliest designs. ” -C2Cigars

“ Despite all his natural athletic ability, Nails got an edge any way he could. One of a few about whom teammates would say "wouldn't want to play against him, but can't stand him as a teammate either". ” -dilemma19

“ Largely despised upon release, it has risen in favor in many collector's eyes. Not these. Almost looks like this could have been the follow-up to 1972 or 1975. Dykstra was a great player. Loved him with the Phils. A shame what's become of him post-baseball. ” -vrooomed

“ This is the first set of baseball cards I ever collected on my own. ” -wax_house

“ These cards smell the best. ” -carthage44

“ I have always liked this set. Many people have not. I can sort of understand since the bright color designs appeared to be totally random and didn't match up with the team colors. Hmmm I seem to recall a really popular now vintage set from the mid 1970s that was similar; random bright color designs that didn't match the team colors. Can you say Nine-Teen-Seventy-Five? Yeah I KNEW you could. ” -captkirk42

“ Back when cards were made out of cardboard....and we liked it. It's Topps, it's baseball, it's all good with me. ” -Kaline6

“ I really liked this set as a kid. Very colorful with a decent design. Set seems prone to poor aging due to the materials used. A lot of warping and cards sticking together. Luckily I've got thousands so I can stand to get rid of the damaged ones here and there. ” -Mitch

“ LOVE IT!!!!!! Another trip down memory lane............ ” -RoyalChief

Set: 2004 Decipher Star Trek Necessary Evil (Rate)

Card: #96 The First of Many

“ I don't remember using this one back in the day but then I tended to play the Klingon affiliation. ” -koloth42

“ I don't know why, but I have a feeling Captkirk is going to have something to say about this card. ” -RoyalChief

“ A really random Card of the Day. Nice one for the Star Trek TCG (TCC). I had forgotten that the back doesn't say "Star Trek" I thought it did. My bad. Of course they started this "game" with The Next Generation only so there is that. ” -captkirk42

“ "The First of Many"...oh, I hope not!! PLEASE, NOOOOOOOO!!! Make them stop printing these cards!!!! ” -C2Cigars

Set: 1995-96 Collector's Choice (Rate)

Card: #361 Wayne Gretzky

“ Yawn another 1990s Upper Deck Collector's Choice card as the card of the day. Sometimes the random is to consistent. ” -captkirk42

“ I really like this set , it was fun and fairly cheap to collect. ” -uncaian

“ All I could this of when I saw this card was Cosmo Kramer. ” -NJDevils

“ He was the EVERYTHING man! ” -carthage44

“ Put Gretzky's accomplishments in perspective: Gretzky, career assists -- 1963. Messier, career points (2nd most all-time) -- 1887. Even though he holds the all-time points record based on assists alone, Wayne also scored 894 goals. ” -dilemma19

“ What is that thing on the back?!?!?!? Looks like some unhappy robot/hello kitty?!?! Whatever it is, it's freaking me out man. :) ” -RoyalChief

Set: 2014-15 Panini UEFA Champions League Adrenalyn XL (Rate)

Card: #186 Dimitar Berbatov

“ Considering soccer is supposedly the most popular sport in the world, they really don't get good card coverage. Mostly just game cards, which I don't count. At least the scan is very good! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Not fond of soccer, not fond of Panini. Just my opinion. ” -Kaline6

“ Pretty terrible. Is this a game card or something? ” -NJdevils

“ Is 197 a good score? ” -dilemma19

“ Panini version of "Attax"? *sigh* OK it is good for what it is some kind of card game card. ” -captkirk42

“ I have no clue what the colored numbers mean. ” -carthage44

“ "2014-15 Panini UEFA Champions League Adrenalyn XL #186 Dimitar Berbatov"? I believe that is mostly gibberish, but whatever. Otherwise...I still don't understand anything regarding the card itself. Consider me completely confused. ” -DarkSide830

“ What is this odd sport? ” -RoyalChief

Set: 1992 Pro Line Profiles (Rate)

Card: #190 Keith Byars

“ I hated these soooo much when I was younger. They were confusing and altogether stupid! Now, I can appreciate them and kind of see what they were going for. ” -RoyalChief

“ When these came out in 1992 I thought they were neat an innovative. A few years later after recovering from the Junk Wars er Junk Wax Days I thought they were just plain silly. This card is interesting in that it displays two sports the intended Football and Basketball. Showing athletes are "normal" people can sometimes be a good thing as well. ” -captkirk42

“ These profile cards were a look at the players outside of the game. ” -carthage44

Set: 1995 Stadium Club - Super Team World Series (Rate)

Card: #217 Sandy Alomar Jr.

“ Interesting...you don't see photos of the back of the player very often on cards. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I actually really like this card, different perspective. ” -uncaian

“ The "best seat in the house" on the back is different and informative. ” -carthage44

“ Nice ground level photo. Those would be some good seats. ” -RoyalChief

“ Wow great photo for a card. Not big on this particular set (It is the mid-90s after all Hehe). Back looks like a disaster, I'm guessing due to it being in this '95 set. Might need to get this particular card sometime just for the front photo. ” -captkirk42

“ Just what I want to see on a card...everybody's backside. What is that background on the reverse side? Peeling paint? Horrible card. ” -C2Cigars

“ If it was a front view, the card would be better, but it would be still awful. Just less so. ” -DarkSide830

“ I liked some of the innovations that Topps and Upper Deck used in this era. Like Super Teams and Crash The Game, where you were rewarded for having cards of teams/players who excelled on the field. This is a real nice looking card too. I don't remember this one at all. ” -switzr1

Set: 1971 Topps (Rate)

Card: #57 Mike Morgan

“ it isn't too often you see a cartoon on the front of the card! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ He doesn't look all that vicious. Did the Saints have bounties on opponents in 1971? ” -switzr1

“ Classic Topps FB. Ahhh the 70's.....3 years with the Skins & Saints, yet he's got his Philly uniform on. ” -Kaline6

“ Nice card, ” -uncaian

“ This was my favorite football set as a kid, very colorful. I picked up a lot of these from an older kid on our street, as the first football cards I bought in packs was 1976 ” -CluelessJoe

“ So very very good!!! ” -carthage44

“ One of my favorite Vintage Football sets. Loved them since I got them fresh from the packs back then. I loved (and still do love) the little cartoon position character. I also get a kick (pardon the pun) how back then topps didn't bother airbrushing players into their new uniforms. A shame that his "old" uniform is actually from two teams and two years ago. (From the 1971 perspective not from today). I really really need to complete this set along with a zillion others from the '60s and '70s and whenever. ” -captkirk42

“ Love vintage cards, any sport. 1971 is one of my favs. The little cartoon football players on the front and the small cartoons on the back....love 'em!! Good old lazy Topps. The photo is from no later than 1967 when he was an Eagle. ” -C2Cigars

Set: 2008 Press Pass - Reflectors Blue (Rate)

Card: #15 J.J. Hickson

“ Nice looking card, aside from the fact that I can't read his name on the front. Maybe it would be easier in hand. I love college basketball, and I love college basketball cards. And the guy was a first round draft pick who is still in the NBA, so if anybody says "I've never heard of this guy so he shouldn't be on a basketball card" I'm going to scream! ” -switzr1

“ OK design but I am more than tired of Press Pass and its kind. ” -captkirk42

“ This was the last Press Pass NCAA basketball set. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Not feeling this one at all.... ” -Flcardtrader

“ Sad to see Press Pass dissolve. Really liked their college based cards. ” -carthage44

Set: 1995-96 Hoops (Rate)

Card: #27 Tyrone Hill

“ This set kind of falls into the "So bad, I've grown to like it" category. And could the NBA uniforms have been any more hideous in this era? ” -switzr1

“ I love that the card back gives you the players college and pro stats. The more the better. ” -carthage44

“ Whoops, we forgot about the name and logo, let's just slap it on sideways. ” -NJDevils

“ OK design but not great. The name plate/flag should be horizontal not vertical reading. Other than that the front is fine. Back OK but don't like the font for player name it is soooo small compared to the player position in the background. I thought it was his name at first until I read "Forward" (looked a bit like "Howard" at first, but this guys name is "Hill") ” -captkirk42

“ Although the set design is not great, I have a lot of good memories of the set so I like it more than I would based on design alone. My first ever NBA insert came out of a pack of this set, or at least the first one I was sure was an insert, when I first began collecting the NBA. The scan is not good and needs to be replaced- those whitish lines on it are NOT on the card. The pink likes you can barely see on the back ARE on it but the scan is so washed out that you can't hardly see them. ” -Billy Kingsley
