Set: 1993 Topps (Rate)

Card: #566 Rod Brewer



“ This card is blandness incarnate, but this Card looks like he's trying to cop a free trip to first by having his teeth nicked by a pitch. ” -revnorb

“ Too similar to the 1992 set for my taste. Right before things went haywire. ” -vrooomed

“ Looks like Topps took 1993 off. Very bland design. ” -carthage44

“ Ah 1993 Topps this was one of the last years I was really into cards before I took a brief hiatus from actively collecting modern cards. I got fed up with all the holograms, chrome and gimmick cards that made up the madness of the "Junk Wax" years. Only to come back around 2005 for more trading card madness. I probably need to complete this set as well. ” -captkirk42

“ Pretty uninterested design. The early 90s where certainly not Topps' best years. ” -koloth42

“ The Cardinals have some great unis, but a stripe down the legs of the pants would be a nice touch. ” -jlaz10

“ I actually really like this card. Its simple and you dont need a magnifing glass to read it :) ” -engine614

“ I'm sure I saw him play, but I don't remember him. I like the card design though. ” -jupiterhill

“ I really prefer the red cap/helmet or the home Sunday bird cap on Cardinals cards. 1993 was one of the better-looking Topps sets of the 1990s. ” -switzr1

“ I really like this set, despite the absence of a team logo on front. 1993 was the year Topps finally upgraded their base set card stock to match what Donruss and Fleer had done in 1992, and slightly ahead of what Score had been using since 1988 (and the back looked more like what Score had been producing than anything Topps had ever done). As with every year from 1988-1993, I bought tons of these aimlessly. They even turned up at Big Logs around 2000 for something like $5 a box. I thought the Cardinals black helmets and caps looked really sharp, too. ” -DaClyde

“ Always dug the nameplate on '93 Topps, and I like the backs even though they get some flack for being difficult to read. Not much going on in this Rod Brewer card, though. ” -marcbrubaker

Set: 1955 Topps Double Header (Rate)

Card: #83 Joe Frazier / 84 Don Mossi



“ Interesting card. Clearly a folded design, and it appears the feet would match up with both photos. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Interesting concept - glad it didn't catch on. ” -vrooomed

“ As a fan of vintage cards I love these things. I don't have any but I think they are cool. They tend to be pretty expensive though so I'm not sure I'll ever own one. ” -captkirk42

“ Sweet card and very creative for it's time! ” -carthage44

“ Whats the idea here, if you fold it over the image lines up, like the back of a Mad Magazine? That's kinda cool, but I wouldn't want to be the guy upside down on the back. ” -jackal726

“ These are great. Never saw one before. ” -NJDevils

“ Awesome is the word that comes to mind for me! These would be considered "treasures" in my collection! ” -bkklaos

“ Very interesting gimmick card. I bet the kids loved these in 1955. ” -C2Cigars

“ Those stirrups! ” -jlaz10

Set: 1996-97 SkyBox Premium (Rate)

Card: #74 Ed O'Bannon



“ I normally don't comment on basketball because I don't collect it, but I have to say, I actually like this design. There are a few tweaks I would make to improve it, but overall, especially given the era it came from, it's nice! ” -vrooomed

“ Why the infield on the back of he card? ” -NJdevils

“ The one man who may change collegiate sports for ever. Last time I heard. He was now selling Toyotas in California. ” -deporcoruña

“ While I consider 1996-97 the best season of NBA basketball cards overall, the Skybox set is rather on the lower end of the coolness spectrum. I am not a big fan of the computer generated background. O'Bannon only lasted three years in the NBA, the first two with the Nets and then one with Dallas. Jerry Stackhouse, also visible on this card, came from the same draft and lasted in the NBA until 2012-13. O'Bannon's impact on the NBA is negligible, but he may end up changing college sports (for the better) on a wide scale. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Classic NBA jerseys. The '90s is my favorite era of uniforms, for basketball at least. ” -jlaz10

“ Not sure if I've seen any cards from this set. ” -captkirk42

Set: 2007 Dr Who Battles in Time - Annihilator (Rate)

Card: #3 Clockwork Woman 3



“ [mimic the Lorax voice]"Hoo! That’s a woman???" ” -volbox

“ People assume that time is a strict progression of cause to effect, but actually, from a nonlinear, non-subjective viewpoint, it's more like a big ball of wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey... stuff. ” -koloth42

“ Domo Arigato Mrs.Roboto !Geek love for the series,not so much for the cards. ” -uncaian

“ Er, um, nope. ” -marcbrubaker

“ I love Doctor Who. Not a huge fan of TCGs, CCGs or whatever you want to label them. The episode ("Girl in the Fireplace") that had these Clockwork Droids was a bit bizarre, but is a huge favorite of many fans. This particular card game I have no idea how to play (like many of them). I'm not sure if I will pursue any cards in this set or not. Many TCGs have way too many "rare" cards that are hard to get (mostly to make them powerhouse cards in the game) for a simple set collector like me. ” -captkirk42

“ Dr. Who scared the crap out of me when I was a kid... ” -SFC Temple

“ Ummmm, yeah.... ” -carthage44

Set: 2005-06 Magic Box Int. Shoot Out (Rate)

Card: #CA9 Hermann Hreidarsson



“ The North Pole called. It wants its socks back. It also says to stop kicking your own logo. ” -revnorb

“ Looks like he's about to kick the logo. ” -vrooomed

“ Nice card, but sorry folks I don't collect Soccer (Real Football). Just too many things to collect in just ONE sport let alone several. ” -captkirk42

“ I certainly prefer the 1923-24 baseball exhibits to this ” -NJDevils

“ This is a good-looking card. I would like to have some of these in my collection. ” -switzr1

Set: 2014 Press Pass American Thunder - Great American Legend (Rate)

Card: #GAL-1 Richard Petty



“ Another one of my scans, unfortunately the card is not all that great- I hate mirror foils, and for the past few years, that is all Press Pass used for inserts. They also tried to cram a 38 year, 200 win, 7 championship career onto 10 cards, so needless to say it didn't work out all that well. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Not big into racing. This is a nice looking card, but it could be better. I take it it is chrome? The scan probably isn't doing it justice. I wish they would produce less chrome cards so they would be special again. ” -captkirk42

Set: 1989 Pro Set (Rate)

Card: #213 Mark Clayton



“ Bad sign when the back of the card has basic info like team name/logo. Didn't see the name at first ” -Mike67

“ 1st Pro Set attempt ... that means >>ERRORS and VARIATIONS.. and their are some beauties. Luv this set, and still don't have all the ERR/VARs! ~BOB~ ” -BOBSCARDZ

“ Pro set were some of the first cards that I received as a child! The older cards, like this, always give you so much information and detail on the back. I miss that. ” -carthage44

“ I like the design. 1989 was the start of the greatest age of trading cards. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I miss the size of Pro Set sets because you'd get cards of players you would never get now. I liked these 1989 borders more than the following year. They were nice distinctive cards. ” -armac

“ Had a ton of these in 89/90 traded most away before I decided I really need to complete the set. The danger of the junk years products. I like the design: simple no gold or silver leaf. Real cardboard Upper Deck was just on the horizon about to take the hobby by storm. ” -captkirk42

“ The dreaded cap-sleeve. Not as small as they are today, but surprisingly small for 1989. ” -jlaz10

“ Always liked this set. It really stood out with the different colored borders when that was pretty non-existent in mainstream cards of all sports. Good photo of Clayton too. ” -switzr1

Set: 1988 Topps - Tiffany (Rate)

Card: #490 Larry Parrish



“ Topps Tiffany... OPC backing with Topps on the front. ” -Mike67

“ 1988 Topps - looked similar to 1966 Topps. ” -vrooomed

“ He was a Man's Man!!! ” -carthage44

“ Tiffany cards? What no Debbie Gibson cards? *RIMSHOT* Seriously back in the day when Tiffany cards were the rage sure I was into them, but now-days **Yawn** Not so much. I do like the '88 Topps design. Basic and simple. ” -captkirk42

“ Topps' most boring design since 1966. This is practically its own Heritage design. Aside from the errors that were briefly popular (Murray, McGwire, Leiter, Comstock), this set had little to recommend it to collectors. The Tiffany set is just putting lipstick on a pig. Why did my 12-year-old self buy so friggin' many of them? ” -DaClyde

“ The Rangers old roads lacked red, a color that they overcompensated for in their 1994 uni set. ” -jlaz10

“ LP was a favorite when I was a kid watching the Expos. Nice player. And as I said with the last Tiffany card...I like the nice clean back. ” -armac

Set: 2000-01 Upper Deck MVP (Rate)

Card: #37 Jeff O'Neill



“ Not a huge fan of MVP, or at least the early ones. I liked the Collector's Choice brand it replaced (In basketball) better. With that said, I'm about 20 cards away from having the complete run from 1999-00 through 2003-04. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Really dislike the bar codes on these cards. ” -carthage44

“ Great player always played hard. ” -uncaian

“ Solid product, especially considering it was "low-end". ” -vrooomed

“ The 'Canes had some good sweaters, but their new design is so much better. ” -jlaz10

“ This guy is familiar. I know the name, but I know nothing of what this guy's done. Your prototypical obscure former player. ” -Howintensive

Set: 2011 Topps Gypsy Queen - Mini Red Gypsy Queen Back (Rate)

Card: #13 Joey Votto



“ That may be the smallest card number in history. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Half the people love these, the other half loathe these. In this case, I'm part of the latter. What IS that on the back?! ” -vrooomed

“ A BIG pass on the Gypsy Queen sets. ” -carthage44

“ I don't like this design as much as some of the other recent Gypsy Queen mini sets. I do like the choice of picture though. Don't seem to see many pictures of a first baseman covering the bag on cards, especially from this straight-on angle. ” -switzr1
