Set: 2007 Topps - Distinguished Service (Rate)

Card: #DS25 Ted Williams

“ Excellent set! I had not seen it before. I just finished reading all of them, and added them to my wantlist, even...not for the baseball aspect but the history aspect, as history is truly my favorite topic. This is the only card I know of to feature Richard Bong, the WWII pilot credited with downing the most planes, for example. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Fine idea for a set. I didn't know these existed. I was out of the card loop from about 2004-2012 so I missed a lot. I like this card. ” -switzr1

“ The man really could do it all ” -Young Kilo

“ Very cool ” -jackal726

“ I don't know why they refer to him as an "ace", because looking at both his service record and the list of Korean War flying aces, he didn't shoot down any enemy aircraft on his 39 combat missions, let alone the five necessary to qualify as an ace. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ Nice tribute set! Ted struggled in the marriage department, but sure did everything else well! ” -bkklaos

“ Ted Williams was a great American! ” -Gunny

“ 'Murica. ” -jlaz10

“ Yeah....I will pass on this set. ” -addysdaddy

“ I started collecting the 1964 Topps set a year or so ago, but once i got a hundred or so of them together i decided they weren't as cool as i thought they were. I do have the whole 2013 Heritage set based off that design, though, and am intending to one day sit down and rub a quarter across the back of each and every one of them. ” -revnorb

“ Coming to theaters this summer: The Bourn Insert ” -UNC_Samurai

“ I really like the Heritage concept. I've said it before, but it bears repeating: I really wish they had kept at it with the NBA cards, they only did it for two years in my sport. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Now if only Topps Heritage would use throwback unis in their pics! ” -jlaz10

“ He looks like he has bad intentions with that bat. ” -switzr1

Set: 1992-93 Score (Rate)

Card: #364 Jeff Chychrun

“ One of my only hockey cards is from this set...I pulled it from a mixed pack of basketball cards I got earlier this year. I only have 5 hockey cards. ” -Billy Kingsley

Career Stats: 262 Games, 3 Goals, 22 Assists, 25 Points and 742 Penalty Minutes. His name was engraved on the Stanly Cup in 1992 despite only playing in 17 games with the Penguins. ” -carthage44

“ Another hockey card ” -Young Kilo

“ Chychrun only played 18 regular season games with the flightless ones. As far as the card goes it looks like pretty regular stuff that Score offered in the 90s. It is kind of interesting to see Jeff with the skating Penguin logo and the pigeon one on the back of the card. ” -Gunny

“ Not a flashy guy,made opponents work for their goals.I like this set,one of my favorite Score sets. ” -uncaian

“ I love the mis-matched gold sleeves on this sweater. ” -jlaz10

“ Hockey. I don't watch it or collect it. So my comment will be this: Nice photo on front and why do they insist on give one year's worth of stats and then giving you career totals. Either give me all the years played stats or just career stats. ” -yokonashiwa

Set: 1992-93 Ultra (Rate)

Card: #220 Orlando Woolridge

“ Love the goggles. Plus, he is number 0. I can't think of anyone else who has been a 0 number before. I have seen 00 before. Plus, he looks like he is struggling just to get the dunk above the rim and he is ranked #20. I do like the quote on the back. It makes him sound like a dunking machine until you look at his stats. ” -yokonashiwa

“ Woolridge was drafted 6th overall by the Chicago Bulls during the 1981 NBA Draft. He played in the NBA from 1981-1994 with the Bulls, Nets, Lakers, Nuggets, Pistons, Bucks and 76ers. Career Stats: 13,623 Points (16.0 PPG), Rebounds 3,696 (4.3 RPG) and 1,609 Assists (1.9 APG). Woolridge then went on to coach the LA Sparks of the WNBA and the Houston Takers and Arizona Rhinos of the ABA. After a battle with heart disease, Woolridge died on May 31, 2012 at the age of 52. ” -carthage44

“ If this were a video card, I would expect the ball to bounce 10 ft in the air after Big O misses the jam....92-93 Ultra was a great set but I am not a Big O fan. ” -flcardtrader

“ He passed away a couple of years ago, very young. (in his 50s). He always wore #0. That was unusual in the 1980s and early 90s when he was playing, somewhat common today. I've always really liked the 1992-93 Ultra set. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I hated Ultra's Dunk Rank then. Not impressed by it now. At least they ditched it after one year (I think) ” -switzr1

“ The quote on the back is something else! ” -UNC_Samurai

“ Number 0! You don't see that a lot! ” -jlaz10

Set: 1994 Donruss (Rate)

Card: #302 Doug Strange

“ Love that proto-typical line drive to center batting pose as the batter is making his way out of the box. ” -flcardtrader

“ Unlike most of my tradingcarddb brethren, I like a lot of mid-1990s designs, and this is one of them. It's got the logo, great full-bleed photography, and a big photo on the back. (I haven't relied on backs of cards for stats since before they invented this little thing called the Internet.) ” -PlayerPCCollector

“ Nice design. Large, clear pictures are good. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ No one remembers your name, when you're Strange, when you're Strange, you're Doug Straaaaange... ” -UNC_Samurai

“ I like the home whites on the front and road grays on the back. ” -jlaz10

“ This card looks strange... ” -SaveDaKid

He has also won two gold medals with Team Canada in 2010 in Vancouver and 2014 in Sochi. ” -carthage44

“ Kind of interesting to see Sid wearing the "A" instead of the "C" on his sweater. Speaking of sweaters, I always liked how this version made use of the skating penguin and the pigeon-like penguin on the shoulders. ” -Gunny

“ I'm whinner my mommy says I'm special.....I won the cup even though so that makes me a winner.....wah.....wah....I have more Stanley Cup titles than Eric Lindros my idol of being the biggest whinner in NHL history ” -I HATE CROSBY

“ Interesting that they include a pronunciation chart on the back of the card. Some players have complex names that aren't pronounced as they are written so I could see that being very handy. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Looks like he's skating thru the halls of the rebel ship that Darth Vader and the stormtroopers board in the opening scene of Star Wars. ” -revnorb

“ SidDaKid ” -SaveDaKid

“ I hate this guys guts. ” -jlaz10

Set: 1993 Finish Line NHRA - Speedways (Rate)

Card: #T10 Saniar Int'l Dragway

“ Off the top of my head this is the first drag racing card to ever make Card of the Day! As is pretty well known, I love auto racing...but I never really got into drag racing, despite the fact that my father did it, albeit before I was born. I prefer my races to last longer than 15 seconds, I suppose. I do watch it several times a year, and have a decent sized stash of cards and a small sized collection of 1/64 diecast replicas, however. As for the card itself, this was a great idea for an insert. I wish it had caught on, as tracks have changed a lot since 1993. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Looks like an airport. ” -jlaz10

“ It appears Score is now the hockey equivalent of the NBA's Hoops release? I like the design on this one, both front and back. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Thisis a pretty nice set.It's a shame Panini won't be doing anymore hockey.Palat had a pretty decent first year with T.B. ” -uncaian
