Set: 2012 Topps Heritage - Stick-Ons (Rate)

Card: #23 Mark Teixeira

“ Ahh! Floating disembodied heads are creepy! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Disembodied heads are just disturbing. ” -koloth42

“ How many people actually would peel these stickers? Never liked the floating heads (a la 1963 Rookies). Always a bit creepy to me. This one is particularly spooky looking. ” -vrooomed

“ Absolutely worthless! ” -carthage44

“ Not sure why it's a Stick-On, and not a sticker. He looks like he's painted on the side of an Easter egg. Its so bad-looking, I kind of like it. ” -switzr1

“ Too many worthless inserts in these newer baseball sets. They need to be trimmed down some. ” -suomibear8

“ Yay more vintage! Oh wait it's Heritage, well OK its still all good. ” -captkirk42

“ The idea to include the stickers in 2012 Heritage was great, but what would have been better is to have actual stickers. ” -jlaz10

Set: 2009 Upper Deck Huntik - Legendary Saga (Rate)

Card: #3 Overlos - Legendary Titan of Will

“ I usually stand up for the TCG cards on this site...unless the art is substandard. This art is substandard, tough to read graphics, the description of attack sucks.... ” -SFC Temple

“ Never heard of it and I'm ok with that. ” -koloth42

“ I have no idea what this is??? ” -carthage44

“ As good as this is, I still like '57' Topps baseball better. ” -NJDevils

“ Pretty nice looking CCG (Collectible Card Game, aka: TCG Trading Card Game) card, but I don't recall hearing of it. Huntik must have been an attempt by Upper Deck (maybe one of many) to get into the CCG/TCG market? 2009 is almost 20 years after the MTG (Magic The Gathering) debut and practical monopoly of the CCG world. ” -captkirk42

“ The only thing that shouts "CARD!!!" to me is the Upper Deck logo ” -volbox

“ I have no idea what I am looking at. And the title above confuses me even more. ” -switzr1

Set: 1989 Maxx - Preview Set (Rate)

Card: #NNO1 Cover Card

“ The 1989 Maxx set was a tough one for me to hunt down. I began collecting NASCAR cards in 1993 and I did not hunt down any cards until 2010! It was almost like a comedy of errors as I kept missing them, except it wasn't funny. Even when I finally did get them, they reek of cigarettes so I still have to look for replacements. I have no idea what the combo pack on the back refers to as I got these all together with the full set I won on Ebay. The car on the front of the card is Bill Elliott's. Elliott won the championship in 1988 so it makes sense they used him in advertising. Maxx was only around from 1988-1996 but it remains my all time favorite card company. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Very very poor! ” -carthage44

“ Wow truly random a set title card. They don't do much of this anymore at least not that I know of. For Non-Sport sets it is actually a pretty cool thing but for sports cards it can be a little annoying lets get onto the players. In this case it is lets get on with the racers and their cars. Oh just noticed on the back it says its only an 8 card set. Cool it fits into one album page. ” -captkirk42

“ I guess that's what a cover card for a racing set should look like. Seems like most racing cards I see feature the driver and not the car. If I collected them, I think I would rather see the cars. ” -switzr1

Set: 1998 Bowman (Rate)

Card: #153 Jack Cust

“ (back of the card) Probably a nice website design back then. ” -volbox

“ Hey Bowman, you can't walk 31 times in 121 ABs. ” -switzr1

“ I feel cheated...Topps used this design in baseball, football and hockey...and not the NBA. What's up with that? ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Jack Cust would have gone to the high school at which I teach had he not chosen to go to the nearest Catholic school. His father played baseball at Seton Hall and is a very successful local entrepreneur, owning, among other things, an indoor sports dome complex which bears his son's name and outdoor baseball complex called Diamond Nation, which is as nice as some major league spring training sites. The younger Cust could never field, but had some good years for the A's with HR and OBP. ” -Dave Sosidka

“ Even though I am really sick of Bowman and the entire which card do you have from their sets with the super prospecting they do and having 3 or 4 "sets" that are something between different sets and sub-sets or insert sets. I think I am in the minority when I think this was a better color combination for the D'Backs. I am sick of their red and brick red colors since half the league's teams are red and white or red with some other color, the other half of the league is blue. AARRGGHH! ” -captkirk42

“ He had some big power but too much swing and miss in his game caused his career to end. ” -carthage44

“ Good man to see in the batter's box.....if you're a pitcher and need a K. Struck out 38.8% of the time. ” -NJdevils

Set: 1990 Leaf (Rate)

Card: #355 Joe Orsulak

“ Not a bad design. Simple, yet effective. An actual photo is always appreciated. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ This set was considered rare by the standards set in the late 80s and early 90s. I liked the design on the front. Wasn't a fan of the silver all the way on the back, but otherwise not bad for the vertical format. ” -vrooomed

“ What makes many sets since 1990 (or earlier?) bad is the blurring of the backgrounds. I dont know if it is for legal reasons or what. ” -NJDevils

“ I was surprised to see that I dont own this card. Haven't had a COTD that was in my collection in a long time. The streak continues. Nice looking card, by the way. ” -switzr1

“ Nice card from a nice set and it's the O's. I think I have some of these don't recall. I really really need to organized my cahoard (Card Hoard) ” -captkirk42

“ The classic O's script shown in this uni just didn't look right without their classic cartoon bird. ” -jlaz10

“ A very valuable set. ” -carthage44

Set: 1989 Topps New Kids on the Block (Rate)

Card: #4 Bookin'

“ I know so many 30-40 year old women who would love this card. Did you know these guys still tour? Me neither, until a co-worker bought a ticket to go see them. ” -switzr1

“ Since my sisters didn't collect cards, I don't know how these ended up in our house, but I remember them. That one on the far left is a real Blue Blood. ” -jupiterhill

“ Really ? Ugh! Definitely NOT the right stuff,baby ! ” -uncaian

“ So intellectual. ” -wax_house

“ OMG! When I worked in a toy store late 80s early 90s these guys were all the rage and this set was sold at the store I worked at. Well tried to be sold. Since NKOTB were a huge Rage the store chain like many other stores bought a TON of this "White Stuff" (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ink_6KRbrnI) and eventually had a problem even almost giving it away. I avoided them like the plague but it was almost tempting to get a ton of these things, I didn't. About 2 years ago a friend gave me their son's card collection of Sports mostly Basketball, plus the other sports and a little Non-Sport. He had 5 or 6 of these cards he must have gotten at least one or two packs to "try" them out or liked NKOTB. Actually the set isn't too bad, it is a nice history of the group at their peak. Unfortunately the timing of this set was junk era, so if I had bought a ton of this stuff I'd still have a ton of this stuff. ” -captkirk42

“ I enjoy non sport, but this set is very bland ” -SFC Temple

“ I'm sure they read all the time... ” -jlaz10

“ New Kids on the Block is a turn back the clock for sure! ” -carthage44

“ Times like this I wish Topps was not never invented. But I am sure Donruss would have done it if Topps wasn't around ” -NJDevils

“ I would have to say without a doubt that out of all of these guys Wahlberg has made quite the career for himself. But that doesn't mean I'm listening these guys lol ” -Joshua825

“ Who wants this card I know I want it ” -aPandCproject

Set: 2011-12 SP Authentic (Rate)

Card: #67 Glen Rice

“ I like this card. College basketball with the actual uniforms. Not sure if the whole set is college or not. I do wish the picture was bigger though. Really good scan, by the way. ” -switzr1

“ I'm a HUGE fan of college sets. ” -carthage44

“ My alma matter! I really dig this idea. For obvious reasons, you don't often see photos of players in their college unis. ” -wax_house

“ SP Authentic. *sigh* I'm a bit tired of them from almost any year. ” -captkirk42

“ A little too nondescript for me and I'm not sure what those bars are about is that to measure height and girth? ” -koloth42

“ Since Upper Deck lost the NBA license, they keep cranking out sets using vintage designs but college photos. This is the 1998-99 SP Authentic rookie design. I have no desire to add these cards to my collection. At least the scan is good. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ The Wolverines should bring back this uni, at least for one game. The big "M" and tiny "ichigan" is odd, yet it works so well. ” -jlaz10

“ Always had a hard time trying to find this set, still nice designs for the most part! ” -Joshua825

“ P-r-e-t-t-y Bad. Pretty pretty bad. ” -NJDevils

“ Photo taken during the National Championship game in 1989, which they won. ” -Bizzork

Set: 2007-08 O-Pee-Chee (Rate)

Card: #181 Brian Rafalski

“ Great defenceman.The only problem I really have with this set is no write up on the back . ” -uncaian

“ I like this set and have only one VERY minor gripe about this card in particular. A little text somewhere stating when he became a Red Wing would be nice as all stats and the photo show him with the NJ Devils. I really do like this design. (Even with the dark borders which will be hard to keep mint.) ” -vrooomed

“ Blah! ” -carthage44

“ I like the design. I also like the retro style back. As it turns out I really like that old style back more than I ever realized. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ This looks familiar. Didn't we have another card from this set recently? I like this set. ” -switzr1

“ Okay so I really like this card but is he a Devil or Red Wing? (Just couldn't make up his mind). ” -Mihome316

“ I like OPC's bigger sets. The SP's are attainable and the card stock is well designed. You still have a chance at some decent hits too. ” -suomibear8

“ Love these O-Pee-Chee retro cards. Really need to consider getting the set. I forget exactly what my first OPC card was, I'm pretty sure it was a baseball one from mid or late 70s back in the days when the OPC sets were smaller than their Topps counterparts. ” -captkirk42

“ For a relatively young team, the Devils have classic, timeless uniforms. ” -jlaz10

Set: 2003-04 Upper Deck Finite (Rate)

Card: #130 Earl Monroe

“ He's coming out of the card ” -Young Kilo

“ When will Upper Deck realize that a bunch of computer graphics DON'T make a card look better. ” -uncaian

“ Every single card in this set is serially numbered. But, oddly enough, not all the base cards are numbered to the same level. Some are numbered to 1999, some 2999. There doesn't seem to be any reasoning behind it, Beckett states that retired players and active players determine it, but that's not correct. I'm not a real big fan of the design, as both years they did this set it was all 100% computer generated. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Creepy ” -SFC Temple

“ I am a big fan of the Finite. Not so much this one but the early years like the 1998 SPx Finite football set. One of the best sets of all-time in my opinion. ” -carthage44

“ The classic Knicks unis were some of the best in NBA history. Blue and orange go so well together. ” -jlaz10

“ This is a nice card. It looks like Earl is stooping down because the card size is too small for his tall frame. LOL I seem to recall having some football and baseball cards with this UD Finite design but didn't like them that much. ” -captkirk42

“ I'm surprised they didn't go with a colorized photo for Monroe, there would have been enough available from his time in New York. ” -Bizzork

Set: 1998 Pacific (Rate)

Card: #341 Ismael Valdes

“ As much as I like most of the Pacific brands this one is just OK. The gold leaf print I don't like and the weird box whatever it is around the name and position is too much. The back is interesting but the stats should be more than one year. yeah yeah I know vintage cards from the 50s and 60s sometimes just had the past year and career totals but that was before the did a full career thing. ” -captkirk42

“ The diagonal stats and information on the back is annoying. ” -carthage44

“ Nice action shot ” -jackal726

“ Tight baseball pants just do not look good unless you go high socks. ” -jlaz10

“ "Call me, Ishmael." Speaking of which, maybe someone should put out a card set of whales. ” -NJdevils
