Random Card of the Day

Set: 1989 O-Pee-Chee Sticker Backs (Rate)

Card: #10 Tony Fernandez

“ This looks like the back of the card is posted as the front...I'm sure there's a reason for this, but I don't know what it is. The back is more interesting than the front...or I should say the side shown as Card of the Day is more interesting, anyway. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ The AL had a glut of good shortstops from 1985-1995. Fernandez and Trammell were always sort of in Ripken's shadow when All-Star time rolled around. ” -DaClyde

“ Nice way of making garbage collectible. ” -vrooomed

“ Three beautiful uniforms! The Jays combination of blue jersey and powder blue pants is horrible and amazing at the same time. ” -jlaz10

“ Every bit as good as Ozzie Smith, and better offensively. Fernandez had 66 more HR's, 51 more RBI's and his batting avg was 26 points higher, all with 1,485 fewer at bats than Ozzie Smith had. And yet the Hall of Fame voting was: Fernandez = 0.7%. Smith = 91.7%. Guess all those back flips paid off in the end. ” -Id8jlb8666

“ What a name! ” -carthage44

Set: 1995 Fleer Power Rangers Movie (Rate)

Card: #144 Casting Call: Karan Ashley

“ WHAT??? If I only knew these were out there. LOL! ” -carthage44

“ At first glance, I thought this was a WNBA card for Britney Griner. ” -jupiterhill

“ I can't begin to tell you how many times my sons watched this movie when they were little. Can't wait for the Ivan Ooze rookie card to make Card of the Day! ” -Dave Sosidka

“ No.1 recycler of old Japanese sci fi serieses ” -uncaian

“ I bet that hip-hop dancing will come in useful when saving the world. Who needs martial arts! Also, I am not a fan of a card with the same picture on the front and the back. ” -switzr1

“ I definitely want to have cards from Fleer about the Power Rangers! ” -jlaz10

“ Go Go Power Rangers.. ” -bigdawg31

Set: 1991 Pro Set Petty Family (Rate)

Card: #9 Championship Year

“ Pass, pass and pass. ” -carthage44

“ This was a great set, although at 50 cards a little short. Between the 4 Pettys that raced, they accumulated 262 wins- and would likely have had many more had Adam not been killed in a tragic accident at age 20, in 2000. 54 of the wins were Lee's, his son Richard scored 200 wins, 95 more than anyone else, and Richard's son Kyle won 8. Adam was Kyle's son. Maurice and his son Richie also raced but did not win any races. Maurice did not like racing and became one of the top engine builders of all time- all three are in the NASCAR Hall of Fame. Richard holds almost every record available, his career spanned from 1958-1992 and he still owns two cars in 2014. This was the second NASCAR set I completed, purchasing a factory set sometime in 1993. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I wonder how much that car cost Lee Petty, compared to the cost of a winning stock car today. ” -switzr1

“ Great Pic! ” -SSG Temple

“ Not much into Racing,but this is a nice card .Was there anything ProSet didn't put out? ” -uncaian

“ Can't help but look in the background for Bigfoot.... ” -Joshua825

“ Beautiful car in the background there. ” -jlaz10

“ I won't bash collecting this type of card, because each person likes what they like. I may not be into it, but if you are... Nice card showing Racing Royalty. ” -vrooomed

Set: 1949 Remar Bread (Rate)

Card: #4 Loyd Christopher

“ Sweet bread card! Love the "Let's Be Friends" slogan on the back. ” -carthage44

“ Vintage promo...cool. I like the radio ad on the back, and the old-school bread wrapping. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I love me some minor league cards and I'm a sucker for food issue cards as well. Pretty cool old card. ” -Id8jlb8666

“ Nice scan of an old card ” -SSG Temple

“ Fun card. Local minor league team produced by a non-mainstream company. I like it! ” -koloth42

“ Wow, this card is even older than I am. A very nice card. ” -NJdevils

“ Wow - early minor league card. I just love the old stuff. And always did - even as a kid in the 70s and 80s. ” -vrooomed

“ The Oakland Oaks! Such a better name than the A's, although I can't argue with the A's history. ” -jlaz10

“ I think I have a loaf of 1949 bread in my kitchen. I should check for this card. ” -switzr1

Set: 1976 Topps Happy Days (Rate)

Card: #1 A Chick Is Like a Phone... Easy to Pick Up

“ HAHA, WOW! ” -carthage44

“ That's true...if you're Fonzie! ” -switzr1

“ I've always like Happy Days. The earlier episodes anyway, not a big fan of Chachi era episodes. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ AAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYY!!!! I actually have some of this set.Love the show even after they "jumped the shark" ” -uncaian

“ They say once every hundred years, the Donny Most card rises out of its toploader. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ Da Fonz! ” -koloth42

“ If this set was made today, it would have rainbow parallels, autograph subsets, and a piece of Fonzi's jacket. I liked it better when collectors chased the base sets because that's all there was. ” -jupiterhill

“ I thought this was the ET set for a moment. ” -NJDevils

“ All I need to do to fix the car here is hit it once and go heyyyyyy with thumbs up and it purrs like a kitten! Heyyyyyy! ” -Joshua825

“ LMAO!!!! Liberals everywhere are losing their minds! ” -SSG Temple

“ Eyyy! ” -jlaz10

Set: 1995 Collector's Choice (Rate)

Card: #271 Jeff Russell

“ There were an awful lot of closeups in this set... Looks more dating site style to me ” -Mike67

“ Spring Training photo alert! ” -carthage44

“ I always thought Collector's Choice was a great value for the money, and 1995 was my favorite design. For those who insist positions should be on the front, these even tell if the pitcher throws right or left! ” -switzr1

“ The name's Russell, James Russell. ” -koloth42

“ Overall, not a bad card. Affordable product. ” -vrooomed

“ "Collector's" Choice - because he clearly wasn't the Red Sox' choice. ” -UNC_Samurai

Set: 1999 Topps WCW/nWo Nitro (Rate)

Card: #13 Rey Mysterio

“ I remember when Bischoff made Mysterio and Psycosis take their masks off after losing stipulation matches, blatantly disregarding the heritage of Luche Libre wrestlers. He also forced Kane and Abyss to unmask for a one time payoff (Kane on free TV, not even ppv), totally robbing these guys of the intrigue and mystique that they spent years building up. ” -Id8jlb8666

“ When healthy, you could always count on Rey to put on one of the best matches of the night at any event he wrestled at. It's amazing that fifteen years ago, he was already a nine-year veteran. Definite WWE Hall of Famer when he finally hangs the mask up for good. ” -switzr1

“ 1 of the best high flyers & entertainers in the business.Not too bad card design. ” -uncaian

“ WOW is right. ” -CluelessJoe

“ Don't mess with the mask. ” -jlaz10

“ There was a senior? ” -carthage44

“ One of the greatest of all time, before losing his mask and bulking up too much. This was him in his prime. ” -DaClyde

“ Now those were the days! I still remember the stable he was in and how he looked when he finally took off the mask! ” -Joshua825

Set: 2003 Topps Traded & Rookies (Rate)

Card: #T148 Rafael Soriano

“ I actually recognize his name, must be from years of SportsCenter. I like the card design. Blue borders look cool. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ At first I thought this must be a team issue minor with the blue border and green info boxes. ” -koloth42

“ If the Mariners rendered this uniform design in blue and gold, they'd have some of the best unis in the bigs. ” -jlaz10

Set: 1995-96 E-Motion - Xcited (Rate)

Card: #1 Theo Fleury

“ He certainly looks Xcited to be the card of the day. ” -switzr1

“ Too much white on this sweater. Gold sleeves would have looked much better. ” -jlaz10
