Set: 2003 SPx (Rate)

Card: #19 Drew Bledsoe

“ Am I tripping? It hurts my eyes. ” -Duke

“ This is a very odd set design, made moreso by the scan, which shows up as pink and purple lines (I would guess it was done on en Epson machine, one of my scanners does that with holofoils). I know a lot of people go nuts for SPx and SP Authentic cards, but I honestly am not that big a fan. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I normally don't comment on football (I don't really collect football), but this, this is terrible. The background on the front (and back!) looks like a really bad acid trip or something. Bledsoe, himself, was a great QB. ” -vrooomed

“ Very distracting background...hate it. ” -C2Cigars

“ I think this card had a negative effect on Bledsoe's career. ” -NJdevils

“ Wow, that is probably the busiest base card I have seen ” -jackal726

“ Too much happening in these Bills unis. The double outline isn't necessary, as is the thin royal blue stripe across the chest. ” -jlaz10

“ Ahhh! I'm blind! ” -suomibear8

“ Not a big fan of this design, but don't find is as bad as I used to. I prefer seeing the field as a background. ” -armac

Set: 2001 Topps Star Wars Evolution (Rate)

Card: #62 Princess Leia

“ Oh snap! I'm speechless. ” -Duke

“ Oh, that hair. I like this card. My earliest memory in life, though vague, is seeing Star Wars at my local drive-in. Pity George couldn't leave well enough alone and stop at three movies. ” -switzr1

“ The only cards I have from the Evolution set is the two promos. I was not actively collecting non-sports at the time, not even Star Wars. (what was I thinking?) Not too big a fan of foil cards. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Star wars... if I could wish everything to do with this franchise into extinction, I would. ” -Id8jlb8666

“ I liked the Star Wars cards from the. 70's better, because Han shot first then. ” -revnorb

“ Will never forget seeing the Star Wars debut in the theater as a kid...wow, was it "the event" of the time! Still love the movies! ” -bkklaos

“ Never seen a Star Wars movie in my entire life. I don't think I ever will too. I'm the exception that confirms the rule. ” -JimStaub

“ Loved this set! Like the design of the cards, I want to complete that set! ” -Joshua825

Set: 1991-92 Score Canadian Bilingual (Rate)

Card: #304 San Jose Sharks (Logo)

“ This put a smile on my face. Colourful and funny. I guess only in USA one can trademark a phrase like "Shark attack!". Be careful what you shout when you see a shark next time. ” -Duke

“ This card always gave me chuckle. I remember when the Sharks were introduced as an expansion team and the stir that this logo created. All the local shops had Sharks stuff for sale and it was flying off the shelves. ” -Gunny

“ Not a Hockey Card Collector...but certainly a COOL logo and card. ~BOB~ ” -BOBSCARDZ

“ I just got the American version (purple border) on January 31st. I have always liked team logo cards. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Neat card. But if this is Bilingual, where is the other "lingual"> ” -NJdevils

“ Cool card! ” -carthage44

“ A little different from the current logo, but still nice. I like this card because it shows who was on the original team. ” -vrooomed

“ Did they come up with interesting names for every team? ” -jlaz10

“ Nice card,not bad set But I still don't see the reason behind 3 different versions. ” -uncaian

“ This is how you introduce a new team to the NHL? Ohhh, look at the pretty sea anemone. ” -C2Cigars

“ Bilingual? ” -switzr1

Set: 2007-08 Upper Deck Victory (Rate)

Card: #304 Cory Murphy

“ I'm so glad they show me how to pronounce such a difficult name. ” -armac

“ Great in SM-liiga (FNL), poor in NHL. ” -Duke

“ Nice phonetic pronunciation assistance on the back. I appreciate that, as there are players on my fantasy hockey teams whose names give me a hard time. ” -Id8jlb8666

“ The Florida Panthers logo has always been one of my favorites because it looks like it could have been drawn by Jack "The King" Kirby. ” -Gunny

“ Pretty solid design for a hockey card. I am familiar with the early Victory products, and they were always nice. ” -vrooomed

“ Very impressive card, front and back. Nice set ” -NJdevils

“ The Panthers really need to ditch the Reebok EDGE templates and go to a more classic look. And bring back vertically arched names! ” -jlaz10

“ I like the Victory series,it is affordable,nice looking & has plenty of rookies. ” -uncaian

“ Even thou this is an easy name, it's cool how they have the name pronunciation on the back of the card because many hockey players' names are hard to say. ” -carthage44

“ Victory SP RC's are obtainable RC's, with the lowest value in this sport. Good for kids. ” -suomibear8

“ I'm amused by the pronunciation guide on the back more than anything. I'm sure it is there to help with European names, but having a name as easy as Cory Murphy as the sample made me laugh. ” -switzr1

“ A legend in the Finnish league, had a nice 25-game run with Lightning. Don't like jersey cards, but bought his off eBay years ago. Love him! ” -wax_house

Set: 1980 Topps (Rate)

Card: #179 Randy Logan

“ Topps sure did like that bright pink didn't they? Overall good design though. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Nice centered card. These card are hard to find this sweet. ” -carthage44

“ Typical boring Topps 80's design ... but GO EAGLES! ~BOB~ ” -BOBSCARDZ

“ Great back of card. No team logo on front? ” -NJDevils

“ Dear Philadelphia Eagles, Please bring back kelly green! Sincerely, the Uniform World. ” -jlaz10

“ Good looking card. I didn't collect football until 1982, so I have never owned many 1980s. I always liked the backs of these. ” -switzr1

Set: 1992-93 Upper Deck MVP Holograms (Rate)

Card: #15 Alvin Robertson

“ Loved this set when I was first starting to collect the NBA. I still do. If you ask me, holograms are the best innovation of the 1990s. Yes, more so than parallels, relics, autographs, etc. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ When Robertson is the Team MVP, you know the Bucks are bad. ” -carthage44

“ Holograms were kind of cool for a while, but also got scratched up really easily. This is a decent enough design though. I don't mind it, but I don't think I would like it if they did a set like this today. ” -switzr1

“ The double-green Bucks! Interesting look, but it worked for them. ” -jlaz10

“ The player gets lost in a sea of ugly. ” -C2Cigars

“ Interesting background with the hologram and shapes, don't recall seeing these. ” -Joshua825

Set: 2001-02 Pacific Adrenaline - Power Play (Rate)

Card: #1 Jean-Sebastien Giguere

“ Absolutely hating these advertising cards. Design is all over the place. Change of the millenium was sad time for card collecting. Pacific/Paramount did bad things for hobby. Many colleagues quit during that period and sold their collections. ” -Duke

“ Bring back the old Ducks logo from the movie "Mighty Ducks"! ” -carthage44

“ Great goalie.OK set. ” -uncaian

“ I've always loved this name. It sounds even better when said with a heavy French accent! ” -cckeith

“ I don't appreciate the name-dropping. There's only one French Connection (Perreault-Martin-Robert). Adding "-Canadian" doesn't fool me. ” -C2Cigars

“ The Mighty Ducks of Anaheim! Great crest. ” -jlaz10

Set: 2013 Panini Cooperstown (Rate)

Card: #17 Satchel Paige

“ Cool card. Vintage theme though modern. A player even I have heard of/know about. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I guess MLB doesn't own the Negro League license... ” -jackal726

“ New card of a legend...still love it! ” -bkklaos

“ Negro League unis were some of the best. The color raglan sleeves, color belt loops, and pants numbers are all innovations not seen today. ” -jlaz10

“ Love the stories I've read about Paige! ” -Joshua825

“ Quick Quick!! We've run out of players somehow!! WE NEED TO RETRO IT!!! Honestly, all these retro sets... are they trying to educate young collectors on legends, or fill binders with worthless cards because they're replicas with no real appreciating value? That said... gonna look into this set and get educated... and fill a binder. COMPLETION COMPLETION!!!! ” -Dixxy

“ I liked these Cooperstown sets. Makes it possible to own a card of some of the HOFers that Topps doesn't generally use in their sets, without spending big bucks on their actual vintage cards. ” -switzr1

Set: 1990 Donruss Best of the NL (Rate)

Card: #112 Shawon Dunston

“ So bad but so good! ” -carthage44

“ Never been a Cubs fan, but I always liked Shawon Dunston ” -jackal726

“ Worst back of card for a Major League set, worse than minor league sets. Good job on front photo. ” -NJdevils

“ Not a bad looking card for 1990. A little information under his stats, and we would be good. ” -engine614

“ I had so many 1990 Donruss it wasn't funny. But hardly ever saw this blue set for some reason.... ” -Joshua825

“ The script is way too small on this jersey. Make it taller and it's not half bad. ” -jlaz10

“ Shawn Dunston presents Baseball 101: "This is a baseball." ” -armac

“ Shaaaa-wahn! I watched him throw oh so many balls into the second row. Did a four year old girl play with crayons on the edges of this card? She should have used the big blank space on the back, instead. ” -Vvvergeer

Set: 1993 Stadium Club (Rate)

Card: #306 Jonathan Hurst

“ Stadium Club usually had nice photography. I didn't always like the design, but you could expect good pictures. This design is actually pretty good, though the foil is hard to read in a scan. I always liked the rookie card on the back, except in basketball sets where Topps didn't make cards for a long time and almost everyone had 92-93 Topps shown as their RC. ” -switzr1

“ MOM!!! Giant-Man stepped on Three Rivers Stadium again!!! ” -revnorb

“ I have the hockey version of this set.I like the baseball better .Nice. ” -uncaian

“ The RC shown on the back was nice, except for the rookies - they were comical - especially when the SC card was the RC. Always loved the photography on Stadium Club. The 1993s are affordable now. Collation in boxes is rough. My son and I opened several, and still had to buy singles to complete the set. ” -vrooomed

“ To me, 93 Stadium Club and Fleer Ultra were a big letdown from their 92 editions. ” -volbox

“ I do like how these Stadium Club cards would show the players first Topps card on the back. ” -carthage44

“ Looking back, the Expos should have kept their racing stripe jerseys up until their last day. They were a lot better than these. ” -jlaz10

“ I liked the 1991 set design the best. This one....meh ” -suomibear8
