Random Card of the Day

Set: 2010 Finest (Rate)

Card: #82 Marco Scutaro

“ I wouldn't define it as "junk," but this is a really ugly card. ” -switzr1

“ I'm impressed with the way the team name is presented in the background. It complements the isolation of the player on the front. I've added the Berkman and Oswalt cards from this set to my Want List. ” -Sportzcommish

“ Good scan for a Finest card! The design is kind of uninspired though. I bet it looks better as a Refractor. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Never understood why the Jays didn't do more to keep this guy in the late 2000's. That being said, love Topps Finest, even though the card has the Red Sox logo in the background. ” -rmitchell6700

“ Great baseball name.... So many baseball nicknames that can be derived from this. Lets go Scootie.... ” -parsley24

“ I remember during his brief time with the Blue Jays, fans in the stadium would play "Marco Polo" when Scuturo was on the field. Someone would yell "Marco!", then someone a few sections away would yell "Scutaro!" Nice card though. The foil makes it really tough to scan. ” -olerud363

“ For how much these boxes cost, they leave a lot to be desired. ” -carthage44

“ The dreaded chrome background that looks OK in person (don't like it though) than it does scanned. Reminds me of some of the ToppsTown designs. Back typical typical only career. totals UGH Not much more info on the back they could easily add more stats. Again I say "Finest" is far from being Topps' Finest. ” -captkirk42

“ Trivia questions on the back of cards have never bothered me, but who makes the design decision to make a trivia unrelated in any way to the featured player *the* prominent attribute of the card? Nice of them to squeeze in a line about the actual career statistics of the player. Also strikes me as funny the decision to abbreviate "Venezuela" on a line that takes up the least amount of space on the card. ” -OCHawkeye

“ I like this a lot! I like the trivia on the back, the logo behind the player is pretty good too. ” -702tpr777

“ postseason hero ” -Bargunmaster

“ I kind of like the logo in the background and then the small color logo in the corner. Not a fan of the white cut out area on the bottom. Can't figure out why there is a weird line drawn around the player - not sure why that is there and is a distracting line. ” -ntlwhlr

Set: 1991 Score (Rate)

Card: #89 Dan Hampton

“ I generally love the basic design of these, but there were too many where the main player's picture shared the frame with another. ” -Sportzcommish

“ Never been much of a football collector, but would have been able to guess this was a Score from 1991 just based on it's similarities to the baseball set. Oh, and the "Score 91" logo kind of helps as well. This photo of The Danimal was likely taken on September 9th, 1990 in a Bears 17-0 win vs Seattle to kickoff the 1990 season. It was his final season of a career that began in 1979. ” -OCHawkeye

“ A solid card, front and back. ” -NJDevils

“ Da Bears! ” -carthage44

“ I've got a lot of love for '91 Score Football. I really have to buckle down on this one to make sure I complete it some day. ” -captkirk42

“ I really liked the look of these when they came out. Original Score was cool. ” -muskie027

“ I don't hate this design at all. If I needed some heavy furniture moved in 1991, I would definitely have called Dan Hampton. ” -dilemma19

“ If only I could have back all the money that 12 year-old me spent on 1991 Score football cards... ” -IndyBean17

“ An above average card for an outstanding DT. I never liked Score's card stock so much, but in general the designs were decent, at least in their first several years. ” -kents_stuff

“ I don't collect any football really, but I do love that linemen get a cards occasionally. Love the photo on the back. ” -rmpaq5

“ the 90s fade border really makes this card look even more mediocre than it already is ” -Bargunmaster

“ Who has the list of cards that prominently feature another man's butt on them? ” -UKboogie

Set: 2010 Topps Magic (Rate)

Card: #156 Elvis Dumervil

“ I'm not sure what's Magic about it, but I like this card. Card front design is excellent, and the back has a skyline picture, so it's automatically a winning design in my book. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Not as successful as the Real Elvis. ” -Sportzcommish

“ Good shot for Elvis, now a 49er member. ” -dah15

“ Nice clean and simple front design, which I like. ” -olerud363

“ Nice looking football card. I like it. ” -switzr1

“ No magic here. ” -carthage44

“ Good overall simple design. But to name the set Magic. I think that is where topps misses out. ” -parsley24

“ Nice looking card. When Topps first revived the magic brand I hated them because it was pro players in college uniforms. The pros in pro uniforms is a better look in my book. I prefer the pro uniforms. ” -captkirk42

“ I see why they call him 'Elvis the Pelvis.' ” -royals

“ Elvis has just left the building....that's all I have to say about this card ” -rmitchell6700

“ I like the front layout, but the white border is too large and I think I'd like to see a black frame border around the picture. The back's not bad even without stats. Yup...I think I could like this card set. ” -kents_stuff

“ I like the panels at the bottom with the logo, name, and position. Always nice to see a throwback type trivia on the back. ” -rmpaq5

Set: 2016 Topps WWE - Bronze (Rate)

Card: #17 D-Von Dudley

“ This design works so much better for Wrestling than it does for baseball. Not sure what that big white area on the card front is? It almost looks die cut but based on the back I am sure is not. I know nothing about wrestling so maybe it's part of the ring? Great scan, it's like I am actually holding this card in my hand. ” -Billy Kingsley


“ Did Topps do right on this Dudley card and the rest of the set by using the same design plates from other sports in 2016? ” -Sportzcommish

“ Like the card design for baseball. Looks OK for wrestling too. ” -olerud363

“ Wrastlin' returns to the RCotD YEAH Brutha! OK Topps for the last few years has been pretty good with their using the same design for everything during the year. It makes it easy to identify when cards from each sport came out, but it takes away some of the fun and originality for each sport. NOW as for the color parallels and this being the "Bronze" parallel. I hate the way they have that. Some colors you can't tell it is a parallel. For the last couple of years I haven't like the standard Topps design. Every two or three years they look similar to the last few years then they change something slightly for another set of 3 years that look similar. Top it off (sorry about that pun) with designs that work better for digital images on websites than on pieces of cardboard, or rather lightweight card stock. ” -captkirk42

“ WWE....I appreciate many types of cards....but not these! As busy as the front is, the back is boring. ” -cnangle

“ GET THE TABLE! ” -IndyBean17

“ Bad second run in the wwe for the dudleys ” -Bargunmaster

“ Remember seeing the Dudley Boys back in the early 2000's when they were with ECW. 6 man tag match, I think I was more exhausted than the wrestlers when the night was over. It was an incredible show and I miss those days of "in your face" hardcore wrestling. ” -rmitchell6700

“ Ohhhh, testify. More wrestling. I like it, even if it's a parallel. D-Von, get the table! ” -switzr1

“ For myself, as a person who writes rather verbosely, to be thinking that this card, the second wrestling card in a couple of weeks to be ROTCD, is lacking the ability to educate our youth in writing, specifically by utilizing adjectivial and conjunctive phrases in their sentences, is amazing. ” -kents_stuff

“ I know nothing of this man. ” -muskie027

Set: 1992-93 Upper Deck - World Junior Grads (Rate)

Card: #WG5 Pavel Bure

“ When I was first reading names off of cards, I assumed his name was pronounced like "byoor". When I got into the sport, and learned it was pronounced "bury", I have to admit I was surprised. Although not as surprised as I was by the pronunciation of Dustin Byfuglien's last name! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ A colorful glove would have worked better for my taste. I don't care for the awfully simple top banner. The font lacks size - bigger is better. ” -Sportzcommish

“ Loved the older Canucks colors, before they went with the flying C orca thing. ” -olerud363

“ Did he have something to do with the Russian's messing with the election? ” -carthage44

“ Typical early 90s UD design, which isn't a bad thing at all. The back side top border is a bit too large for my liking, however. ” -kents_stuff

“ put the canucks on the map!!! ” -parsley24

“ The Russian Rocket, loved watching him play. Hard to believe it's been 25 years since his cards were blowing up the marketplace! ” -rmitchell6700

“ Pavel again. My all-time favorite hockey player, and the reason my favorite NHL team is the farthest team from where I live (I think). Nice photo. Great uniform. I really like this card. Best RCOTD since we had the King of Mystery recently. ” -switzr1

“ What a great color scheme. Much better than the current. ” -IndyBean17

“ Russian Rocket ! Not a bad looking card . I remember when these first came out and they were selling for crazy prices at the flea markets . ” -uncaian

“ Nice UD card OK no team name? He is from Russia did they just have one rep per country is that how they did this "world junior grads" thing? I guess it is a best of thing? ” -captkirk42

“ I like it when HOFers' cards come up on RCotD. The black, orange, gold uniforms were the ugliest color combo EVER. So glad they finally went back to their original colors. ” -C2Cigars

Set: 2011-12 Upper Deck Black Diamond (Rate)

Card: #10 Bobby Orr

“ I would prefer a dedicated Legends set rather than situating random legends into current player sets, but in some instances you have to take what you can get. This is a fantastic scan for an etched card, I don't know yet who made the scan, but you have my gratitude. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ A great one on a card ruined when they chose to modify the background. ” -Sportzcommish

“ We get to write about Bobby Orr on a day Ray Borque is RCOTD. How coincidental that a Bruins great and a Bruins great are so close together. It's funny how this card is worth more, but I think I like the Po Set Borque better. ” -muskie027

“ Ray Bourque as the RCOTD on the day you can comment on this one. What a co-inky-dink. ” -trauty

“ Great player, weak card. ” -carthage44

“ Good to see Orr is still playing. ” -NJDevils

“ Bobby Orr rocks! ” -cjjt

“ Not sure why a 2011 card of a guy long-retired would only have 5 years of stats on it. And why those 5 years? ” -kents_stuff

“ Some of the worst scanning cards every produced. #thanksUpperDeck ” -IndyBean17

“ Um OK the RCotD that showed up was another Bruin a nice Pro Set now we get the silver happy Black Diamond that is so-so to OK in person, but really stinks scanned. ” -captkirk42

“ Never cared for the Black Diamond designs. And I don't care for cards produced for inactive/retired players. They have no value other than intrinsic. I see it as nothing but a money grab by the card companies. ” -C2Cigars

“ Best player ever !! Not a bad looking card . ” -uncaian

Set: 2005 Bowman Heritage - Mahogany (Rate)

Card: #165 Melvin Mora

“ Is this supposed to look this? I hope not. I like the Heritage concept but this execution is...iffy, At best. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Respect for the vintage Bowman series. ” -Sportzcommish

“ “I’m very important. I have many leather-bound books and my apartment smells of rich mahogany.” — Ron Burgundy ” -carthage44

“ As i jump back into the hobby, the heritage designs and the archives are the ones i find the most alluring. Not a real fan of the modern card look. Except the clarity of the photos. ” -parsley24

“ Love these parallels. First the 1951 Bowman design is classic plus using real cardboard instead of modern pressed card stock. Need to complete my Nats from this set and maybe the Os. Sometimes its tempting to look for a full set that is real cheap. ” -captkirk42

“ Unfortunately the Mets had to part ways with Melvin Mora at the deadline in 2000 to get Mike Bordick from the O's. As it turned out, they should've just kept Melvin. ” -mkaz80

“ if it werent for the name of the player or the card brand, i would have thought this card was from 1967 ” -Bargunmaster

“ So if this were really a 1951 card I'd say it was cool (although it looks like astroturf in the background, so I don't know). But since it's a 2005 card, can they really put the copyright 1951 symbol? Is that for the design? For their font of "Baseball Picture Cards"? What? ” -kents_stuff

“ One day I am going to love Heritage. I love the look, but just can't get over that it wasn't meant for the modern player. ” -muskie027

“ A little bit dark, but still a nice looking card. Been a while since I heard/read the name Melvin Mora. ” -rmitchell6700

Set: 2005 Upper Deck Foundations (Rate)

Card: #66 Curtis Martin

“ One of the best Chris Berman-isms of all-time: Curtis "My Favorite" Martin. ” -mkaz80

“ Any given year the Jets usually have either a player I like along with everyone else (Curtis Martin), one that no one else but me likes (Gastineau) one that nobody can like more than he likes himself (Keyshawn Johnson) and one you just have to respect either way (Chrebet). As a franchise they're uninspiring to the point of annoyance. Watching the Jets play is like going over a bunch of speed bumps when you really have to pee. Always slightly unpleasant. ” -Id8jlb8666

“ It's nice when a HOFer card shows up on RCotD. Especially when it's not an ugly card. I for one was happy to see him "follow" Parcells to New York. ” -C2Cigars

“ C. Mart was really good, this set was not. ” -carthage44

“ Good looking card. Good looking uni's. ” -parsley24

“ I am not a Jets but I do like their uniforms. ” -NJDevils

“ Okay design, but hate the re-use of the picture on the back. ” -cjjt

“ Nice looking front. Player name still needs to be one of the first things you see and slightly larger than set brand names/logos. Bacl size of photo OK but it is a headshot of the action shot on the front. Rest of back OK just 5 years of stats for a player of 16 seasons? UGH. ” -captkirk42

“ Too much green. I'd prefer more contrasting colors. Maybe even if the Jets helped out by getting rid of the green pants this particular card would be improved. ” -Sportzcommish

“ I like this card. Reminds me a lot of a set Fleer made about eight years prior, which I can't remember the name of. ” -switzr1

“ Nice card. I like the design of both the front and the back. I really like the black UD logo, too. ” -kents_stuff

Set: 1995 SP (Rate)

Card: #39 Todd Zeile

“ Really like the blue border. I can't tell if it's holographic or not, that would only make it even better. I don't think I've ever seen any of this set in person, from baseball. The same design was used for at least two of my sports. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I know he played for 843 teams, but Zeile will never look right in those second-rate pinstripes. Not a bad-looking set, though. ” -switzr1

“ A great-looking card from a premium set of the era. The text in the blue chevron is a little bit tricky in terms of being able to read it clearly, but it looks nice. Nice, big photo on the back. ” -mkaz80

“ A super big "meh" for this effort. ” -NJDevils

“ Zeile was a solid player for a long time. ” -carthage44

“ How many late 80's collections are anchored on the Todd Zeile craze. I remember this being one of the first cards that saw a spike in demand, due to ladies purchasing because of his attractiveness. Not a bad looking dude, but a lot of money wasted on this guy. Cool card though. ” -parsley24

“ A 1990s set I love hate. I sort of like the front design, but it is hard to read. Player name should be much bigger. It should always be easy to tell WHO is on the card. back photo way too big some will be glad it is a different photo than the front. I still don't think the back photos should be that big unless it is a faded/shadow background photo. Should be more than just one year of stats. ” -captkirk42

“ aye it's the cubs ” -TradingCards964

“ I kind of like the colored triangle on the side, but would have liked to see the team logo somewhere on the front. ” -olerud363

“ Good design. Nice pictures. ” -cjjt

“ I really like most of the SP designs, and this one is no different. I don't recall having any of these cards in my collection, though. ” -kents_stuff

“ What's with the swatch of grandma's sofa? ” -Sportzcommish

“ I like the look of this. I forgot Zeile played for the Cubs. The blue side is very appealing. ” -muskie027

“ One of my favorites from Upper Deck in the mid 90's. Love the different colored foils that they used... ” -rmitchell6700

“ A Cub! Barely. I generally like the design, but don't need the company logo to be sooooo prominent. Good, different picture on the back. Minimal stats and information, though. It's ok. ” -Vvvergeer

Set: 1995 Fleer Waterworld Movie (Rate)

Card: #108 Help from Above

“ I collect some movie/TV cards, but only of the individual characters played by the actors, and not action scenes from the film/show. ” -Sportzcommish

“ At least the scan is good! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Never heard of these cards. I guess they were as successful as the movie was. ” -olerud363

“ What an average movie. ” -carthage44

“ Me trying to get my kids to walk around puddles in their new shoes. ” -parsley24

“ Interesting card.OK looking from a movie that tanked. "Help from Above"? Looks more like a complicated wedgie device. ” -captkirk42

“ 1995... seems so very long ago. ” -Doe MG

“ Wow, a card for child abuse?? ” -NJDevils

“ Speaking of water, flush this card. ” -DanD

“ Once again, proves the point that there is a card for everything! ” -cckeith

“ Love the movie. Never knew there were cards. ” -jayoneill

“ Enough people warned me about the movie that I have still never seen it. No one warned me about the cards, though, and now I have seen one. In the future, could one of y'all warn me? ” -kents_stuff

“ Everyone loves this movie. I have some of the pictures of water insert cards. ” -UKboogie

“ I have never seen this movie. I remember the big hype and awful reviews. Looks really nice for a 95 movie card and if this was your flick. Since I have never seen this, the only thing that comes to mind is the line from Jim Carey in the Cable Guy when he quotes it by saying, "Dry land is not a myth, I have seen it......Kevin Costner, Water World, I don't know what all the fuss was about, I saw that movie 6 times, it ruled!!!!" ” -muskie027

“ Never seen the movie, although general consensus is it is horrible. Well with expectations that low maybe I'd enjoy it not looking for much! ” -rmpaq5

“ How did this movie get a set of trading cards? One of those movies, everyone jokes how bad it was, but probably most (myself included) never actually saw it. ” -switzr1
