Random Card of the Day

Set: 2008 Topps Heritage (Rate)

Card: #426 Kyle Lohse

“ Love the throwback cards. I know I'm in the minority on that, but I do. I just got my first original 1959 card a month ago. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I wish the throwback sets used the same card stock as the originals, but otherwise the 59 design is nice. ” -suomibear8

“ Design is nice, but the player pic, not so much. Not really a very good scan it seems either. ” -Doc Floyd

“ Cool card except for facsimile auto. ” -carthage44

“ Like the Heritage sets. This is one of the better years for Heritage when they got many things right about using the older design. Some years they really miss it. I prefer the Heritage sets using the thicker real cardboard, where Topps Archives uses modern thin white cardstock. ” -captkirk42

“ I do really enjoy the Heritage Sets, but I wish they would stop with all the colour swap crap. Emulate the original, emulate the original errors, but cut it out with the gum stain/colour change variations. ” -rmpaq5

“ I didn't actually remember him pitching for the Phillies. Good pitcher a few years with the Cardinals. ” -switzr1

Set: 1991 Topps (Rate)

Card: #426 Joe Grahe

“ Somebody had to show this to his boss and explain why, again, designing on a computer was better than doing it with line tape and X-acto knives. ” -revnorb

“ whew...At least it ain't a soccer card...I really liked the 91 set, the whole 40th anniversary thing to me was cool...It started to show that Topps really looked like they were ready to step out of the dark ages...Their stock didn't change until the following year, but at least there was something more on the front than just Oscar Gamble and his awesome 'fro... ” -bigbob8188

“ This set is a top 5 Topps set in my mind. Mostly because they remind me of my childhood collecting days. ” -carthage44

“ Nice design for the overproduced 1990s. ” -captkirk42

“ Hated this set back then, was more into how much nicer UD was at the time. In the end this was probably the best of the bunch that year. Looks more like he is swinging a punch than hurling a ball. ” -Doc Floyd

“ ....Classic set design. ” -RoundtheDiamond87

“ I like this set. Really nice readable back. ” -NJdevils

“ Nothing gets me more excited then that guy you've never heard off...oh is it Mark Langston, Bert Blyleven, nope Edmonton Joe... ” -SaveDaKid

“ I have cards of Mr. Grahe, but don't recall having seen him pitch on TV, so I've never been sure of the pronunciation. I would assume it's said like "Gray" but can't be sure. ” -switzr1

Set: 1988 ProCards (Rate)

Card: #352 Ryan Johnston

“ While we're at it, his other card in the database belongs to another Ryan Johnston ” -volbox

“ Front of the card is very reminiscent of Star cards. Back is too washed out to make out, I can tell there is something written there but it's impossible to make out what, other than card number and his name. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ The following aspects of this card are awful: - border color - posed photo in empty stadium, uncropped - tiny, illegible stats - back appears to have been generated by a typewriter The following elements of this card are redeeming: - none ” -dilemma19

“ Love how the ProCards sets had about 1,000 to 2,000 cards in their sets. ” -carthage44

“ Not bad, pose looks staged and he sort of looks distracted, but I really don't mind the Plain-Jane design. Very basic and to the point, exactly how a minors card should be. 2 thumbs up. ” -Doc Floyd

“ I really do enjoy the simplicity of ProCards Minor League stuff. ” -rmpaq5

“ Ryan, quit looking at the girl in the front row. The camera's over here! ” -switzr1

“ More Minor League card love. This time late 1980s. A quick bio or some career highlights might be good to help with the blank space on the back. ” -captkirk42

Set: 1994 FPG Joe Jusko ERB Collection (Rate)

Card: #58 Staked Out

“ Dinner is served ” -maestro

“ What the French toast? ” -Kaline6

“ Nice art card. Not the kind of thing I'd collect, but I can appreciate the effort involved in issuing this. Maybe too much brand promo on the back, but I like the clean, uncluttered front. ” -dilemma19

“ Awesome art! I think I have a unopened box of this...might have to check and crack it open! ” -bkklaos

“ I tried to look at the set and it's blocked due to "potentially mature content." I have no idea what this is. ” -wax_house

“ If we were to go by the last few weeks of random cards of the day, you would swear that the vast majority of trading cards on this planet are either a) Soccer gaming cards, or b) Like the Disney one recently cards displaying some form of barbaric torture. If aliens one day visit this planet after we are gond and only find this website and its data from the past month, they will come to the conclusion that we did nothing but devise strategy based upon somebody else's ability to kick a ball and, mercilessly torment each other in gruesome fashions. ” -rmpaq5

“ Neat card. So much better than the recent spate of ugly soccer cards. ” -NJDevils

“ Nice Fantasy Non-Sports card from 1990s. ” -captkirk42

“ Joe Jusko is one of several artists that I like. Interesting since I also like Vallejo and he's mentioned on the back lol. Cool looking card to me anyway! ” -Joshua825

“ Heard of Joe Jusko the artist, but no idea what this set is about. Looks like that leopard is getting ready to have an easy meal. ” -Doc Floyd

“ Clueless. ” -carthage44

Set: 1992 Pacific (Rate)

Card: #198 Greg McMurtry

“ Good photo and good scan. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ 1) Those Patriot Unis are classic. 2) In my opinion the pictures should be reversed with the shot involving more action on the front. ” -rmpaq5

“ This Patriot logo is far greater than the crap now. Probably because I associate it with Tom "Cheater" Brady. The 92 Pacific is one of my favorite sets. ” -RoyalChief

“ I enjoy this set. Solid border, big picture, action shot on back with sats and narrative. ” -SFC Temple

“ OK design the card stock I didn't like back then. Front should have team name. Great that the team logo is used with the helmet so team name not "necessary" but it really helps when sorting them. Back photo a bit large. Only one year stats? ” -captkirk42

“ Despite looking like I churned it out of my basement, the depressing thing about this card is that it stacks up pretty well against other 1992 releases. This era of trading cards doesn't boast many redeeming features. ” -dilemma19

“ I loved these cards when I was a kid! ” -carthage44

“ *Yawn* ” -DarkSide830

Set: 1991 Impel G.I. Joe (Rate)

Card: #152 Battle of Cobra Robot in Pit I

“ It's great to see the non-sports cards show up, especially GI Joe! ” -ketchupman36

“ I've talked about this set's importance to me in the past, so let me just say how happy I am to see this come up as Card of the Day today. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Mind-blowing! A trading card recapping a comic book. Yo Joe! ” -dilemma19

“ Love it! Now I know this set exists...and knowing is half the battle! ” -rmpaq5

“ G.I. Joe Real American Hero! Cool card. Nice design. Cool Company. As a fellow Marylander I really wanted this brand/company to succeed. It didn't it was quickly bought by Skybox which was then bought by Fleer. ” -captkirk42

“ Looks like Cobra Robot lost this battle, since we see only his head on the back. Poor Cobra Robot. ” -switzr1

“ My childhood returns! ” -carthage44

“ Think this set would have been better if they had used the toys for the pics instead of comic art. ” -Doc Floyd

“ YO JOE!!!! Not as awesome as the 1986 action cards, but still Joe. ” -SFC Temple

Set: 2007-08 Upper Deck Black Diamond (Rate)

Card: #18 Brent Seabrook

“ Black Diamond cards look great in hand, not so much in scans. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ He is half of the best defensive duo in the league along with Duncan Keith. ” -carthage44

“ Just because the set is called "black diamond", doesn't mean you have to make it 80% black. Great player though! ” -dilemma19

“ Black Diamond Oh how I dislike your Chromeness. The only thing I can read in this scan is Black from "Black Diamond" I can almost read "Diamond" Is that the Upper Deck logo in the upper left? Back is pretty good. ” -captkirk42

“ This card front is a mess. But there is no mistaking that it is Black Diamond! ” -switzr1

Set: 1996-97 Upper Deck (Rate)

Card: #143 Murray Baron

“ Not bad, I do wish the team logo was not silver foil but the actual colours. A note not on the card design...what were the Blues thinking with these unis? Look at the back scan, the red swash on the bottom of the jersey is just awful. ” -rmpaq5

“ I love this design but the name is very hard to read on the hockey version of it. I always really liked the game dated cards UD did for that short time period. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ This set mirrors the base design for Upper Deck's 96-97 basketball set, which I love. So this card gets two thumbs up ” -ketchupman36

“ Nice set, and with UD introducing the the idea of "game-dated" photos, it was rather cool to know which game the photo was taken. ” -vrooomed

“ Nice set , shiny but not tacky & I like the stats & info on the back. Baron was a steady stay at home defenseman ,nothing flashy but got the job done. ” -uncaian

“ Way to plain of a front. ” -DarkSide830

“ Not a bad design, except for the name being hard to read. Why would you make the name and card color the same? ” -suomibear8

“ The exact date of when the picture was taken is cool. ” -carthage44

“ Decent card, nothing exceptional, but not bad either. Typical UD. ” -Doc Floyd

“ Looks like an insert card. Almost didn't see his name reading vertical. Dark gray foil lettering on silver foil great reading for older eyes. Back is a mess. Back photo way too big for starters goes down hill from there. ” -captkirk42

“ I really like this set, as it gave a date to something neat that happened to this player ” -Howintensive

Set: 1990 El Paso Diablos All-Time Greats Team Issue (Rate)

Card: #25 Greg Vaughn

“ I love these team issued minor league cards! For the time frame and budget, no doubt little was allotted, design is good. I think the best part is that the team basically used a trucker/cheese grater hat as part of their uni! ” -rmpaq5

“ Actually outhomered cousin Mo (355 to 328) ” -volbox

“ Nice team issue. I'd guess, not knowing anything about this set having seen it for the first time when it came up as Card of the Day, that this was available only at the stadium? ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Shouldn't this set be called Diablos Who Made It To The Majors? I looked at several card backs, and some of these guys didn't have particularly good numbers with the Diablos. ” -switzr1

“ He was a pure power hitter. ” -carthage44

“ Volcano?!? Printed after Vaughn's above-average debut season with the Brewers. I considered him a very good player surrounded and overshadowed by the steroid monsters (AFAIK he was never implicated). Perhaps never having played for a large-market team (unlike his cousin Mo) hurt his popularity, but I certainly cheered for him as a Padre - while quietly praying he wouldn't need to make a crucial defensive play. The card is terrible, but what do you expect for a minor-league team-issue... ” -dilemma19

“ Nice simple team issued Minor League card. ” -captkirk42

“ Basic, cheap looking, and to the point. So bad it's actually great. And it's not a soccer card! ” -Doc Floyd

Set: 2015 Panini Road to EURO 2016 Adrenalyn XL (Rate)

Card: #235 Onur Kivrak

“ Yes I know he is rolling the ball out to a teammate on the back, but anybody else get "Bowling for Dollars" stuck in their head when the look at it? ” -rmpaq5

“ Another one of these playing cards...why does soccer not get actual cards? I like the uniform. Green has always been my favorite color and this is very much green. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ This card ,popping up the day before the tounament is starting, makes me wonder how random the card of the day really is. ” -deporcoruña

“ Way too many of these garbage cards around. ” -carthage44

“ I try and give every card type their props but any and all soccer cards are laughable; like they are circus give aways. ” -SFC Temple

“ I'm not really pumped about the Euro tournament anyway, but cards like this one don't help generate excitement... What is the significance of "TEAM MATE" in the bottom-left corner. Are there some cards of people competing as individuals? ” -dilemma19

“ WHY do these things keep coming up!!! ” -RoyalChief

“ Oh fun second day in a row a soccer "Attax" card. This one by Panini. Oh wait maybe it isn't a game card but a regular soccer card? Ugly card TOO BUSY. ” -captkirk42

“ I thought I told you to ban these cards for life? With the large number of soccer cards and teams, looks like we will be inundated forever by this junk. ” -NJDevils

“ To be the world's most popular sport, they sure don't know how to make decent looking cards for it. ” -Doc Floyd
