Random Card of the Day

Set: 2014 Choice Norfolk Tides (Rate)

Card: #2 Heath Bell

“ I wish the Norfolk was still the Mets' triple-A hub. They've bounced from New Orleans to Las Vegas since then, and neither seems to fit. This is a pretty sweet card, by the way. As far as minor league designs go, this is one of the better concepts I've seen. ” -mkaz80

“ Very nice minor league card. Recently, Choice and Grandstand have really added value to minor league sets. ” -vrooomed

“ One of those relief pitchers who lost his effectiveness really fast. He had been one of the NL's best closers. Then he was in The minors. Now he's retired. ” -switzr1

“ What a downfall for this guy. Just a few years ago he was an elite closer and now is playing for the Norfolk Tides in Triple-A trying to hang on to his MLB career. ” -carthage44

“ Fun looking Minor League card. Hey that guy actually made the bigs. Amazing. ” -captkirk42

“ The T looks like an L. ” -Billy Kingsley

Set: 1994 Upper Deck (Rate)

Card: #442 Kent Mercker

“ Mid-90s. Ugh. What's with the skinny B/W photo? ” -vrooomed

“ EVERYTHING a baseball card should not be. ” -engine614

“ Awful front...and YIKES, I just saw the back. Never knew why UD was in love with putting all the text sideways, front and back. ” -NJDevils

“ I kind of like the idea for this set but the distorted black & white image ruins it for me. Another example of how the innovations of the 90s era turned them more into trash than treasure. That and all the gold leaf lettering ” -captkirk42

“ 1994 was the high point of my collecting career. I was 11 years old and baseball was my favorite sport! These cards were GREAT! ” -carthage44

“ Kent & Mini Mercker performing in the synchronized pitching competition. Last year a crucial mistake by Mini Mercker cost the team 8 points as they missed the podium by a half a point. ” -SaveDaKid

Set: 2011 Topps (Rate)

Card: #294 Luke Scott

“ I like it. Good design, large photo, text and stats...what more could you ask for? ” -Billy Kingsley

“ 2011 Topps isn't a bad looking set. I don't have many, but I like the few I have. I think the backs really look nice. ” -switzr1

“ I like everything about the 2011 Topps design. ” -vrooomed

“ Nice looking back to basics sort of design ” -captkirk42

“ These sets had some cool short print cards. ” -carthage44

“ Excellent back. Nice large, readable number. ” -NJdevils

“ I love in game action photos, especially hitters swinging at visable pitches. That's the game right there! ” -jackal726

“ Even though I grew up with the O's wearing actual birds on their caps, I can't look at this uniform without thinking cartoon birds. ” -jlaz10

Set: 1990 Topps - Glossy Send-Ins (Rate)

Card: #23 Dwight Gooden

“ I know these cards are as plain as the day is long, but I like 'em. As a kid (and today, yes) I loved randomly finding one or two in a repack. ” -mkaz80

“ Celebrity Rehab! ” -carthage44

“ Nice cards. Back in the day I loved these Glossy cards and would hunt out the rack-packs to get them. Now I'm not that much into them any more. ” -captkirk42

“ Liked them, never got any directly from Topps. Not sure why. Guess I wanted to have the cards in hand when my money left my hand back then. :) I've acquired some over time through trades. Nice card stock. ” -vrooomed

“ "take two and hit to right". ” -NJDevils

“ First off, man it feels good to be back, though 100% of you didn't know I was missing. Second off, is there an All Star Set Non Collector's Edition out there? ” -SaveDaKid

“ Im struggling with the purpose of these sets. Given the front with regular uniform and no mention or indication of All Star status. ” -engine614

“ The Mets had some of the best '80s unis, and I'm a stickler for tradition. The combination of pinstripes and racing stripes created a unique but aesthetically pleasing look. ” -jlaz10

“ Looks so young. Funny to see the pull-over uniforms now. ” -armac

Set: 1944-64 Bee Hive Hockey Photos (Group 2) (Rate)

Card: #NNO Johnny Wilson

“ Love this set,I know it's pretty "plain"but it's great seeing players from the original six teams.Some them never appearing in"regular"sets. ” -uncaian

“ Maybe a staged shot, but I love it! Classic "old school" look! I love the "classy" cursive writing for the name too! ” -bkklaos

“ 1944-64? That is a very large span. So what year is this? ” -carthage44

“ Nice. Wow I'm surprised how crisp this one is given its age. Makes me wish the Capitals had started in 44 instead of 74. ” -captkirk42

“ Curious what the backstory is on this set. They seem quite large. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Again... trading card database. ” -SFC Temple

“ One word - WOW! (Good wow.) ” -vrooomed

“ These Wings sweaters were odd in that the crest was not centered on the body. The wheel of the crest is, leaving the wing hanging of the side. ” -jlaz10

“ A St. Lawrence Company promotinal. Redeem a label from a St. Lawrence Company product, such as, Bee Hive Syrup, Durham Corn Starch, Ivory Laundry Starch, and St. Lawrence Oil. One, two, or three pictures could be redeemed based on the size of the product. The customer could request certain players. Since the Maple Leafs were the most requested they are the most common. ” -C2Cigars

Set: 2005 Bowman Heritage - Mini (Rate)

Card: #29 Ronnie Belliard

“ I'm really not sure why? But I like all the Heritage and Archive issues produced by Topps and Bowman. Must be the "old timer" in me. lol. ~BOB~ ” -BOBSCARDZ

“ Baseball went overboard in the mid 2000's with their heritage/archives sets. ” -carthage44

“ Nice retro set. When these Heritage sets first came out I hated them for being modern sets using old designs. Little did I know they would become a staple of the Topps world and I would end up liking them. Now Ronnie on the other hand, I didn't know at the time of this card, but when he was traded to the Nationals I liked him, but his time with the team was short. ” -captkirk42

“ Ho hum, another retread. ” -vrooomed

“ I liked Belliard. Important, though rarely mentioned, member of the 2006 Cardinals championship team. ” -switzr1

Set: 1988 Donruss (Rate)

Card: #222 Tim Wallach

“ Great scan. I like the design. Late 80s were a good time. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ overproduced, you can't give them away! ~BOB~ ” -BOBSCARDZ

“ The late 80s Donruss designs I used to really hate but when I got back into the hobby I got appreciate them more. This one is fairly simple but also a bit busy at the same time. ” -captkirk42

“ Was not a fan when they came out, but I still seem to have thousands of extras of these. I guess they were cheap. :) BTW, still not a fan. ” -vrooomed

“ The older cards always gave you so much information about the player on the backs of cards. I really miss that! ” -carthage44

“ Easily one of the most identifiable sets of the modern era - 88 Donruss ” -suomibear8

“ Ah, the old Expos powder blue roads! And the racing stripes! ” -jlaz10

“ Somewhere in New Mexico, a lawyer/blogger is smiling over this one... ” -mkaz80

Set: 1998 Fleer Tradition - Vintage (Rate)

Card: #60 Rusty Greer

“ Fly out to center ” -dobbie

“ Stats please. ” -vrooomed

“ Very basic, but says alot. I like it :) ” -engine614

“ Another poor vintage remake. ” -carthage44

“ Glad to know I'm not the only one scanning cards on Christmas Day! ” -bkklaos

“ This Rangers set had too much red. Their true primary color of blue goes better. ” -jlaz10

“ Love the simpler 60s designs, especially for cards from the late 1990s. ” -captkirk42

Set: 1993-94 Topps Premier - Gold (Rate)

Card: #134 Claude Lemieux

“ Didn't Claude Lemieux appear recently as another card of the day? I guess when you've won Stanley Cups with three different teams you get to do that. ” -armac

“ Decent set. I like the back design. The pattern printed under the stats "works" for me. I think it's supposed to be an ice design. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ As a Rangers fan, I hated Claude during this playing days. Respected him, but hated him! By the way, this is a great looking card. Love the photo choices on the front and back. Simple, attractive design. A winner! ” -mkaz80

“ This is a perfect example of how NOT to do a gold parallel. So hard to read the name. ” -switzr1

“ Very weak design. ” -carthage44

“ Claude Lemieux again? On a scale form 1-10, this design gets about a 5. ” -vrooomed

“ Maybe it's the clunkiness, but I surprisingly like the Devils' number font. ” -jlaz10

“ The great agitator,I like this set. ” -uncaian

“ I think the design of this card isszzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz ” -C2Cigars

“ I hope that gold foil name is easier to read in real life. I can't make it out in the scan. That is why I hate many of the Junk Year designs. They strayed from the tried and true easy to read simple designs. They started to go with flashy and trashy. ” -captkirk42

Set: 1978 St. Louis Cardinals 5x7 Photos (Rate)

Card: #NNO Dal Maxvill

“ One of my passions is tracking down information on team-issued photos. Fortunately, I found friends in the hobby who share my interest. Up until about 20 years ago, teams would issue photos of players and coaches for use by news outlets. Many were marked up with grease pencils or white-out like paint to make a portion of the picture stand out. Rarely does one see "sets" of these intact. Now, with the advent of e-mail, teams don't need to incur the expense of sending out envelopes of photos like this if a newspaper wants a set of headshots. ” -Dave Sosidka

“ cool team issued photo. ” -captkirk42

“ Simplicity, at it's maximum. ” -vrooomed

“ These are good for getting signed but I wouldn't consider them cards. ” -carthage44

“ Yup, that's a photo of Dal Maxvill alright. Dal isn't too thrilled with it either. ” -NJDevils

“ I can see others' points of view concerning TCGs in the database...but they are cards. This is not even a card. I know we have visited the "how far do we go" conversation before, and I think anything that isn't a card is too fat IMHO. ” -SFC Temple

“ Just the facts, man. ” -DaClyde

“ Well, there it is. Danged if it ain't. ” -revnorb
