Random Card of the Day

Thursday, April 3, 2014

Set: 1982 Topps (Rate)

Card: #1 Steve Carlton

“ Been a while since we had a card #1 come up as Card of the Day...if ever. Not really a great picture, it makes it look like he does not have a left hand. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ My first true collection of cards. ” -addysdaddy

“ I thought Topps could've used a better photo back in 1982. No hand and no forearm! Although, I guess that's why he was so good, hid the ball effectively. And yes, he was my favorite pitcher while I was growing up. ” -vrooomed

“ A bit "freaky" with them catching him where it looks like his arm has been severed, yet good action shot none the less! A lefty (like myself) and a great one! I've had people tell me over the years that us "lefties" are special...I tell them, although not unhappy to be one, it really is a curse, as we live in a "right handed" world! ” -bkklaos

“ I hate to say this, but...he kind of looks like Jim Abbott in this photo. ” -revnorb

“ He would have been the best pitcher of his time if it were not for Nolan Ryan. ” -deporcoruña

“ Bad action shot. Carlton looks like an amputee. ” -ThemightyOx

“ A little known fact is that the Phillies used maroon in the 80's instead of their standard red. ” -jlaz10

Set: 2000 Bowman (Rate)

Card: #428 Wilfredo Rodriguez

“ Don't see many cards with a gray theme...I like it. I like that the fake autograph is off to the side and not over the picture...I still say it'd be better without it, but at least it's by itself. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ This is what happens when your tryout with the Astros is on the same day you're taking senior pictures ” -jackal726

“ Really nice card. Different, yet in a non-obtrusive way. Back is as good as they get. ” -NJDevils

“ I never understood why or how the Bowman brand became the "Minor League" issue. ” -vrooomed

“ Bowman should have said No Man for this design. Yawn! ” -addysdaddy

Set: 2012 Topps - Game Time Giveaway Die Cut (Rate)

Card: #7 Calvin Johnson

“ Interesting design. It kind of reminds me of an egg. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ My crystal ball says no on this card. ” -addysdaddy

“ When card designers go wild ” -Young Kilo

“ How does this card look in Soda Machine Form? ” -UNC_Samurai

“ Just in time for Easter we have the Calvin Johnson Egg. ” -ThemightyOx

“ Perfect timing with Easter coming up. Really odd write up on the back referencing youtube and espn. ” -NJdevils

“ The Lions uniforms are sleek, but the black is a little extra. ” -jlaz10

“ Best. Easter. Egg. Ever! ” -Vvvergeer

“ Die-cuts never scan as cool as they look in real life, but knowing that I imagine this is a nice card in hand. ” -jackal726

Set: 1988 Kenner Starting Lineup Cards (Rate)

Card: #NNO Tony Gwynn

“ First time I've seen a Starting Lineup card as Card of the Day...I know there are some years not even on the Database yet, finding a checklist is next to impossible, and even when you can, it's for the figures only, not the cards, which some years actually carried a number system. The NBA cards from 1988, the first year, had a blue border where this one is orange. I only have a handful of the 1988 figures, 2 or 3 I think. And I think only one of them came with the card, but I have not scanned mine yet so I have not posted them to the Database. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ There were two versions of Tony Gwynn. This is the skinny Tony. The other version looked like someone had eaten Tony Gwynn. ” -deporcoruña

“ This is what modern looked like in the 80's. I didn't even had to look at the year of release on this one. They even saved a few buck by printing with only one color on the back, but don't get me wrong I like this card. ” -xv3thekid

“ My grandmother was pretty pessimistic whenever the Padres were in a close game, except when Tony Gywnn was due up. And, most of the times, he didn't disappoint. ” -volbox

“ Nice Padres pinstripes. ” -jlaz10

Set: 1992 Pro Set (Rate)

Card: #437 Steve Christie

“ Good photo, good card back. I like Pro Set. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I never understood why they radically changed the design between sets 1 and 2. Of course, I think the company may have been dealing with bankruptcy and a federal investigation at the time. A real shame - from 1989-1991, their cards were the best anyone was printing, even with the long list of typos and errors. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ Making sure he NEVER goes wide right ” -jackal726

Set: 1979 Minnesota Twins Postcards (Rate)

Card: #24 Bombo Rivera

“ I don't like how the white stripe in the middle of the black and red stripes is different widths on the sleeve and on the waist, but i guess i can't argue with the spiritually uplifting way they typeset "POSTCARD" on the back. ” -revnorb

“ I love the postcard and the name "Bombo"...I do wish I had a set of these! ” -bkklaos

“ Welcome to BomboCard, where the only limit is your batting average. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ The Twins had the best script in the bigs. They've brought it back for a throwback alternate, but I don't think that's enough. ” -jlaz10

“ Cool first name ” -Young Kilo

Set: 2001 Playoff Contenders (Rate)

Card: #33 Antonio Freeman

“ Interesting concept. Needs more stats. I'm normally not a fan of cards where the background has been messed with, but it works when it's a ticket based theme, at least for me it does. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ He did WHAT?!? ” -UNC_Samurai

“ Great card. Nice use of the team colors. Topps should hire this designer. ” -NJDevils

“ I liked this idea a lot better when Fleer did it for baseball with Authentix The back has a bit too much dead space. ” -marcbrubaker

“ My second full scan (both football). I'm taking this one as an "omen"...I've been in a football pool for years where you get a randomly drawn NFL team...if that team scores "33" points (the number of this card), whether they win or lose, you win the progressive pot, with anything in the pot at the end of the year going to the person that has the Super Bowl winner. I had the "New York Football Giants" last year...ouch! Additionally, this morning during my workout, I heard "Just Got Lucky - JoBoxers" (one of my favorite songs)...another "omen"? Not sure if good or bad "omens" and I'm not superstitious, but my fingers are crossed for this years upcoming pool (it's been a long time since I have won anything)! ” -bkklaos

“ Different but yet still not a fan. ” -addysdaddy

“ The Packers unis actually look better with the Nike templates. ” -jlaz10

Set: 1984 O-Pee-Chee (Rate)

Card: #76 Alfredo Griffin

“ Great 80s design. I could not think of anything I could improve on this design. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ The 1984 Blue Jays lineup was perhaps the tastiest in AL East history, with Alfredo Griffin at short, Rice Mulliniks at third, Damango Garcia at second, and George "Taco" Bell in the outfield. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ Who bleached the back of his uniform? ” -addysdaddy

“ Excellent back on the card. Could use a crisper version though, anyone have one? ” -NJDevils

“ This is my scan. O Pee Chee were never really high quality cards. Basically the same set as the Topps, but often had more Blue Jays and Expos thrown in. ” -Mike67

“ Damn I wish the Jays could compete again. ” -DanD

Set: 1979 Lipton Tea New England Tea Men (Rate)

Card: #6 Peter Simpson

“ The best thing about this card is the team (?) logo on the back...I am a big fan of sailing ships... ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Ha! ” -Young Kilo

“ Is this card set to commemorate each person's signature pitcher of tea? I like mine without lemon and semi sweet. ” -addysdaddy

“ Now this is a card I will never likely own and if not for this site, likely would have never seen! But I love it! Cheers to Lipton for producing and Gunny for posting! ” -bkklaos

“ Soccer player? Oh wait just looked at the back. ” -uncaian

“ UMBRO!!! Soccer, America's sport of the future since 1972!!! ” -SaveDaKid

“ This is so perfectly 70's. ” -marcbrubaker

“ I like the subtle Umbro logo underneath the collar. ” -jlaz10

“ My first comment for RCOD and it's a soccer card.... ” -CoachBarry
