Set: 2008-09 Topps Chrome (Rate)

Card: #99 Ronnie Brewer

“ I really like the 2008-09 Topps and Chrome designs. I only have one pack's worth of the Topps set, and two or three singles from the Chrome set, I need to get more. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Thank god the Jazz went back to their New Orleans-era uniforms and logo set. ” -jlaz10

“ I'm sure this card looks better in person. It's kind of a mess in this scan. I like all the colours, though. ” -Luckynumber78

“ Back of card is really nice. Mom always said "if you can't find something nice to say about the front of the card, don't say anything at all". ” -NJDevils

Set: 1992 Pro Line Profiles (Rate)

Card: #376 Pat Swilling

“ Saints played the Bills in an Ice Bowl? ” -jackal726

“ Ooh, a snow game! ” -jlaz10

“ I will let everyone else comment on the white on white design. I just want to know why there is a giraffe standing behind him. ” -NJDevils

“ I wonder what Pat Swilling to do to win the game ? I wonder how many times he heard that ? ” -uncaian

“ This would be a cool card if they could have seen their way clear to plunk player, position and team info into some of the empty space. I see they found a way to get the card brand logo in there. ” -revnorb

Set: 1992 Topps (Rate)

Card: #469 Jim Eisenreich

“ I fully admit I don't know much about baseball, but even I know that's not the right way to hold a bat! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I liked this set because it had the stadium on the back. I didn't like this set because there was no team logo anywhere. In hindsight, not too bad of a design. ” -duaned99

“ Looks like he's psyching himself up for ANOTHER round of baseball card photos. ” -jackal726

“ Quality control on a lot of these cards were awful. There was a lot of "double vision" kind of printing problems. ” -suomibear8

“ He's got his bat. He'll protect you from the zombies. ” -ray fosse's ghost

“ I've always liked the Royals combination of blue and powder blue, even if the powder blue was on their road pants. ” -jlaz10

“ Jim, that's how I felt when I realized I was stuck with all these overproduced cards from the early 90s. Nice back of card though. ” -NJDevils

“ Fine, I'll play more BASEBALL. Geez! ” -DaClyde

Set: 1989 ProCards (Rate)

Card: #442 Don Brock

“ I think this set now holds the record for most Card of the Day selections, at least since I joined the Database. It's not a bad set though, I don't see that as a problem. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Okay, Don, wince and say cheese! ” -Luckynumber78

“ A photo to be proud of ” -SSG Temple

“ The lights of San Jose must be very bright. ” -ray fosse's ghost

“ All a minor league team needs is a city-specific cap and they can wear their affiliates uniforms. ” -jlaz10

“ Booooo ProCards ” -Hollywood42

“ The sort-of home plate shaped photo and the color-coordinated background are a nice touch. The typography looks at about the level of the odious 1961 Fleer football cards. Is that Zapf Chancery underneath the team logo? What, they couldn't afford Comic Sans? ” -revnorb

“ Incredibly boring sets, these ProCards were... ” -lyfestory

Set: 1959 Sicle Air Force (Rate)

Card: #A-20 Regulus II

“ Another one of mine...second time one from this set has made Card of the Day! This is a fun set, but hard to find any info on. This represents the time when the Space Race was on, a time of great strides in technology and aircraft design. Or, in this case, Missile design! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Fly like an eagle, into the future... ” -jlaz10

“ Subject on the card aside (I actually kind of like this), I wish more products had card prizes these days. Picking out cereal was so much more fun when the "prize inside" was more of a factor than gluten content. ” -jackal726

“ Cool cards Billy! Thanks again for sharing the extras with me! I hope you got the package I sent you. You have a "knack" for getting CotD posts and with the fun cards you post, I say keep 'em comin'! Cheers, ” -bkklaos

“ 'Murica ” -SSG Temple

“ Yay a space card I can't lay claim to! ” -Dixxy

Set: 1990 Topps Magazine (Rate)

Card: #20 Sandy Alomar Jr.

“ Smile for the camera! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ "Can we hurry this up?" ” -SSG Temple

“ I'm surprised Topps hasn't bothered to resurrect some of these terrible designs from the magazine for some Heritage or Archives set. The actual magazine was a lot of fun, but ultimately couldn't survive by focusing only on Topps products. ” -DaClyde

“ These Indians uniforms are more famous for their appearance in Major League than being worn by players like Sandy Alomar. ” -jlaz10

Set: 1984 Donruss (Rate)

Card: #104 Steve Sax

“ I hadn't realized this design existed previously, when Panini used it for the 2010-11 Donruss NBA cards (to date the only time there has been a simple "Donruss" set for NBA. I like it, though. Even though the text is small on the back it's clearly readable. Hard to believe this card will be 30 next year, isn't it? So will I for that matter! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I remember really hating this design back in the day, but it would seem as though nostalgia has caught up with me here. A big improvement would have been to use team colors for the front. Purple & Yellow aren't very Dodger like. The backs were starting to become rather stale at this point, shame they kept on it for several more years. ” -Shane715

“ Steve Sax Syndrome, and one of the greatest baseball quotes ever, courtesy of teammate Pedro Guerrero: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steve_Sax #Steve_Sax_Syndrome ” -wamk

“ I've always liked how the Dodgers front numbers are red while everything else is blue. ” -jlaz10

“ not a great pic, but nice set... was all the rage back in the late 80s/early 90s with its rated rookies like Mattingly...i still don't have very many cards of this set.. ” -lyfestory

“ A good front of card. Back would be better with full ML stats, not "recent". ” -NJDevils

“ Ha! I just finished watching the Simpsons episode where Saxy Boy got framed for a couple of murders and ends up doing 6 life terms ” -Young Kilo

Set: 2007-08 Upper Deck (Rate)

Card: #488 Riley Cote

“ Nicely done card. I miss series 2s, in my two sports we have not gotten any since 2009, and before that I can't even remember when the last one was, early 2000s. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Young Guns has got to be the longest running subset in sports cards. ” -suomibear8

“ Nice photo. Good to see the player head to toe with no arms or legs hanging out of the picture. Nice readable back too. ” -NJDevils

“ Nothing really stands out about the card itself.. but the guy has a cool name.. ” -lyfestory

“ The Flyers original Edge uniforms looked terrible. Thank god they went back to their original duds. ” -jlaz10

Set: 2003-04 Bowman Signature - Foil (Rate)

Card: #20 Shaquille O'Neal

“ Hey, it's been a while since one of mine got up here! :) This was a one per box parallel in the 2004-05 Bowman Signature brand. I am slowly working on getting the backs scanned of the fronts I already had done for my own website before I joined the Database, I hope to have them finished in 2014. I can't believe the Lakers have been wearing the Sunday Whites for a decade now; it seems like just yesterday they introduced them. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Shaq! Ahhh! ” -jlaz10

“ This is why silver foil and black backgrounds do not mix. Even in-hand, it's a pain trying to read foil names on a dark background. Someone needs to destroy Topps stockpile of foil. Think of the children! ” -DaClyde

“ Shaq took jump shots? ” -SaveDaKid

Set: 2011 Topps Chrome - Rookie Autographs (Rate)

Card: #178 Mark Trumbo

“ Always loved the Chrome sets. I wish Topps still had the NBA license! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ This picture was taken before he was assigned his number 44, as there is no number on the front. ” -jlaz10

“ I'm a sucker for the Chrome cards, and autographed cards. This is a sweet looking card (front and back). ” -vrooomed

“ pretty nice card.. wasn't surprised to see him traded, but the Angels will miss his bat, especially if Pujols and Hamilton don't break out of their funks.. ” -lyfestory

“ That's a nice card. And look, he actually signed his whole name! I mean, it looks like he signed it in third grade handwriting class in blue crayon, but still! ” -Luckynumber78
