Random Card of the Day

Set: 2002 Just Prospects - Gold (Rate)

Card: #37 Dennis Tankersley

“ Very so so card. Nothing special going on here. ” -muskie027

“ Just plain. ” -carthage44

“ This is closer to beige, not gold. ” -IfbBirdsCards

“ Just Minors. When I first saw a card of these I hated them because I hated Minor League cards of guys who went nowhere. Then I started liking them when I noticed guys from my homie teams from when they were in the minors often for other team affiliates. For some of my homie players I like these minor league RCs (or XRCs or whatever they happen to be for whoever) I rarely look for them and will only pick up some from my absolute fave players. ” -captkirk42

“ Pretty nice design. It looks like the design is out of the 60s but the color scheme out of the 2000s. Also, I think it might be a painting instead of an actual photo. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ The major league heist referred to on the card back ended up being a 3 year career and a 1-10 record for Dennis. ” -Lerxst2112

“ This could so be a MAD Magazine spoof card for a word play on Dennis Eckersley, and his "MO" would be tanking every save opportunity. Other than that, the card does not impress me. I have never been a fan of gold borders, and the card back is less than impressive. ” -tbshaw

Set: 1993 Fleer/ProCards (Rate)

Card: #1807 Rich Butler

“ As always, there is something I love and hate about ProCards and I can't put my finger on it for either. ” -muskie027

“ If his professional baseball career never took off, Rich Butler new he could always get a job being a Butler for the...well you know. ” -YoRicha

“ The brother of Rob Butler. ” -carthage44

“ Rich was probably picked on a lot by his teammates. ” -parsley24

“ Anger poke ” -wjhipwell

“ Minor League Baseball OK card. Rich Butler sort of a funny name. ” -captkirk42

Set: 2004 Upper Deck - Game Jerseys (Rate)

Card: #KB-GJ Kyle Boller

“ I'm not sure I understand the hourglass window for the jersey piece but cool look nonetheless ” -ketchupman36

“ Weak jersey card. ” -carthage44

“ Interesting cutout shape for the jersey. I like it. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Early GU (now relics) design. Think the area at the bottom below the relic piece is to big a bit odd looking. Fans of pictures on the back are disappointed with the duplication of the photo. When you get down to it this is one ugly card. This coming from someone who likes the Ravens a bit. Them being my next-door homie team probably should be homie since I live in MD, but I'm closer to DC than B'More. ” -captkirk42

“ Ugh, the dark age between Dilfer and McNair. ” -IfbBirdsCards

“ At first I thought this was a card back. A so-so card and a player that just never panned out. ” -muskie027

Set: 2017 Bowman Draft (Rate)

Card: #BD-170 Cody Sedlock

“ Nice front. Back is a little too busy. ” -KMack

“ I like the design...excellent scan, too. Based on the back of the card it looks like he does not have much experience yet. If I collected baseball, I think I would be all over this set as my main focus in collecting is getting as many different people as possible represented in my collection. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Awesome! Cody is a great guy. He’s in High-A Frederick right now. This is already on my wantlist. ” -IfbBirdsCards

“ Love the draft/prospects cards. ” -carthage44

“ Bowman is probably my least favorite card company. Recent cards all look basically the same and hated their old cards for being weirdly sized, or bland. Hated the backs of most of their cards. Now all they do is churn out the same 100 or so cards in 50 different colors. Most of their cards are of people that will never make it to the majors. So you buy a pack or box hoping that you get one of the 2 players that will be stars 10 years down the road. Bowman is all that is bad in card collecting today. As for this card, it is zoomed in too much, cuts off legs and hand. I hate the Resume, Up Close thing that they do on the back. Ask me again in 5 years when we know if Cody Sedlock actually made it to the majors whether this card was worth it. ” -davidhandberry

“ my problem with bowman is that the cards look the same year after year after year. ” -parsley24

“ Nothing makes you feel older than guys getting baseball cards who were born after you... ” -jasongerman9

“ This design is OK I guess. Now to have fun with the card. Cody musters all of his strength to heft the mighty Bowman Logo aloft in the bottom of the 9th. Bases are loaded with 2 outs the batter represents the go-ahead winning run, the count is full can Cody preserve the O's 3-0 shutout vs those Damn Yankees? ” -captkirk42

“ Bowman is a cool looking card and a cool concept, but the price is insane. ” -muskie027

“ Someone cloned Zack Greinke. ” -pjdionne12

Set: 2012-13 Score (Rate)

Card: #81 Nathan Gerbe

“ I can't remember if I said it here recently or on Cardboard History, but the 2012-13 Score set is one of my favorite NHL sets. It's large, it's colorful, it gives full career statistics (I think), has a season highlights subset, about the only thing missing to make a perfect set is coaches, team cards and checklists. Oh, and the photography's good too. It's probably my second favorite NHL set after 1990-91 Pro Set, but this one may eventually overtake it as I got to see most of the players in this one actually play...where the Pro Set issue came too many years before I officially discovered the sport in 2016. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Those Ducks uniforms were nasty. He played in the AHL for Columbus last year after playing in Switzerland. Did play in 2 games for CBJ this year. ” -IfbBirdsCards

“ I don't get around to doing RCOTD every day but it seems like almost every time I end up doing one it is hockey, which makes no sense because out of the major sports, hockey and soccer are the only ones that I never collected. As for the card, I miss Score for baseball but besides the nostalgia I feel the card is pretty lackluster, rather the team name than the conference on the front. The position on the front would be nice. The back is nice. Probably a 3 for the front and a 8 for the back. ” -davidhandberry

“ Good ol' Score, how I miss thee. Panini was SO much more entertaining for me. Nice front on this set, the backs a little to cluttered, messy for my liking but a solid 7 here. ” -ranfordfan

“ Big fan of the Sabers logo. ” -carthage44

“ At first I thought it might be a vintage card. It has that feel to it. ” -kirkscards

“ Nice Score Card for Hockey. No complaints from me. ” -captkirk42

“ LET'S GO BUFFALO!!!!! This is a very nice looking card. I can't believe ho much I like it, and that is not just because it is a Sabre. Score in general puts out a lot of nice looking cards. Oh my, I think my heart just skipped a beat. Is that a Panini card with full career stats on the back? Someone at Panini must have lost their job for that lapse in judgement!!! ” -muskie027

“ not a bad design, would've like to seen this design in football compared to what they did in 2013 ” -Thunderfoot

Set: 1996 Classic Clear Assets (Rate)

Card: #69 Ricky Craven

“ I think the NASCAR segment of this set may be the only one that was professional...I loved this concept as I love all clear plastic cards, but the execution left much to be desired. He may be the first NASCAR driver to appear on a Card of the Day more than once. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ As much as I like these clear acetate cards, the design limits what can be printed on the back. His look would have been very "rad" in 1990, but perhaps out of style in 1996. ” -dilemma19

“ Is this one of the first prelude to an acetate cards. Either way it is horrible. ” -parsley24

“ looks like an acetate card from a Racing set. I guessed it was racing based on his jacket and what little words are superimposed behind him. Neat looking card but rotten design. At least show a car or incorporate something with car racing into the design, a checkered flag, or steering wheel, tire, "x" shaped lug wrench hubcaps something that remotely hints at car racing. ” -captkirk42

“ Not my thing. Assuming it looks better in hand. ” -muskie027

Set: 1996 Doctor Who (Rate)

Card: #NNO The Web of Fear

“ I don't honestly get this card. I thought at first it was just a TV show card, but reading the paragraph it sounds like a game card. Either way I find TV Show/Movie cards pretty boring. ” -davidhandberry

“ Doctor what? ” -carthage44

“ Kind of basic. Not sure if this would ever be something some one would collect. ” -parsley24

“ Wow I am super shocked but super excited Doctor Who one of my all-time fave Sci-Fi shows made the Random Card of the Day. I have a bunch of these Doctor Who CCG cards, even though I never attempted to even pretend to play the card game itself. The only CCG card game I attempted to learn was the Star Trek CCG which started off with just the Next Generation series. But I digress. As far as CCG card games the Doctor Who one seems to be pretty straightforward on the cards. No fancy power numbers or other stats to track just do whatever the text on the card does. That is I think it is straightforward. These cards were produced before the 1996 movie had been broadcast or around the time it was, so it just has the classic series represented (Doctors 1 through 7). ” -captkirk42

“ This card got me thinking. I wonder if Mays, Mantle, Aaron, Walter Payton, Chamberlain ever was card of the day. Dr Who sure is. ” -NJDevils

“ Doctor Who does not get enough credit as a great show! Not completely thrilled with this card though. ” -muskie027

Set: 2010-11 Score - Playoff Heroes (Rate)

Card: #1 Joe Pavelski

“ Clean looking card I guess. T he front has a blue bow-tie and the back has a 1. What else could you want? ;) ” -ranfordfan

“ Front and back almost exactly the same. ” -carthage44

“ Great action shot. Decent design for an insert. ” -rmpaq5

“ I find the bowtie in the corner quite distracting. ” -kirkscards

“ Nice card but I am not a huge fan of horizontal cards. At least the front and back are both horizontal. ” -captkirk42

“ Not sure I am digging the small photo and the same frame on the back and the front. Oddly enough, there is something I like, and I can't explain what it is, even to myself. ” -muskie027

Set: 2013 PCAS Silver Series (Rate)

Card: #SNL-093 Ilkka Heikkinen

“ At first thought it said Ikea Heineken. Which I thought was weird, furniture store and beer. Instead, just a decent hockey card. The front is ok, but the back is very blah to me. ” -davidhandberry

“ More sponsors please, LOL! ” -carthage44

“ European hockey... awesome! I've picked up a few cards from the Finnish league on COMC, have not shipped them yet but I am looking forward to getting them. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Is this NASCAR or Hockey? ” -kirkscards

“ I like! First, it's hockey. Second, it`s hockey. The design is not the best and as always there are too many patches on the jersey. Otherwise I like it because its .......... you get the point. =) ” -ranfordfan

“ As a hockey fan, I have to say this is just poor. ” -NJDevils

“ Memories. I don't have any of this set. OH the back looks like it is in German that could explain things and why at first glance I thought this guy's last name was Heineken. OK Heineken is Dutch but still. ” -captkirk42

“ When Hockey uniforms start to take a page from NASCAR! ” -muskie027

Set: 2007 Traks - Gold (Rate)

Card: #G17 Jamie McMurray

“ I enjoyed the Traks set when Press Pass brought it back, but I have very little of the 2007 set. The Traks wording and the checkered flag pattern are gold foil, which is hard to tell in scans. I think these parallels were one per pack but I am not 100% sure. 2007 saw Jamie win the Daytona night race in a photo finish. Very exciting finish. It's probably on YouTube. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I thought this was a Panini card at first, especially with the one year of stats on the back ” -ketchupman36

“ Finally something not soccer! Good solid design, and a Ford driver which is the best kind of car to drive. ” -Doc Floyd

“ Not a racing fan but as far as racing goes I would say this should be a good card. Driver on the front, car on the back. What more could you ask for? I wonder if he is sponsored by Irwin though. I can't figure that out. ” -davidhandberry

“ Not a bad card, reminds me of Donruss. Jamie Mac is Missouri born so I try to collect some of his cards, but have never seen this set. ” -jupiterhill

“ Is there an actual difference between this gold card and the base card other than the part number? ” -OCHawkeye

“ Nice Racing card. At first glance it reminded me of the modern Panini Donruss cards (all sports) with the stripes in the border design. Back looks nice and shows the sexy car. ” -captkirk42

“ Not sure what else would go into a racing card, but it looks cool enough. ” -muskie027

“ Granted I don't collect, nor know much about NASCAR releases, but what makes this "Gold" besides the letter G in front of the card number? ” -rmpaq5
