Set: 1989 Fleer League Leaders (Rate)

Card: #12 Andre Dawson

“ I really like the concept of league leader cards...especially as for me my favorite aspect of card collecting is the documenting of history...but...they really should say in WHAT the league leader depicted leads the league in! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ The graphic design on this card is so bad it could be an O-Pee-Chee CFL card. ” -revnorb

“ I don't think I ever had any of these cards, but I like the design. ” -jupiterhill

“ 44-card boxed set goodness. :) Lots of HOFers to be found in those sets. Great for player collectors to get different cards at reasonable prices. Fun stuff! ” -vrooomed

“ League leaders in what category? ” -deporcoruña

“ The Hawk does not look pleased. ” -wamk

“ He caught a whiff of the "Ditch Masters" on the front page. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ This man does not look happy to be a Chicago Cub. ” -Howintensive

“ I love these oddball box sets. But I hate the Cubs. ” -switzr1

Set: 1994-95 Topps (Rate)

Card: #230 Rik Smits

“ Awesome to see one of my Rik Smits cards come up as Card of the Day! When I learned of the NBA's existence, he was the first player I really started following...why, you may ask? Because Marist is practically within walking distance, and my mom's Alma Matter. He played his entire career with the Pacers, but retired too soon due to injury- a fate that befalls many centers, especially those taller than 7 foot 1. He is the only Marist player to make the NBA, although one other was drafted, he only got as far as the D-League. There are two Marist players on one of the Florida football teams, but I don't remember which one. If I can figure it out I'd like to add at least one card of each of them to my collection at some point- one is a rookie this season coming. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Oh yeah... Good ol' Smitty... I remember him... (nope) ” -Howintensive

“ I liked this set when it was released. I still kinda like it now, but this shot of Smits is terrible. ” -jupiterhill

“ Great Reggie Miller-era unis on those Pacers. ” -jlaz10

Set: 1995-96 Topps (Rate)

Card: #54 Keith Primeau

“ Ugh to that name font. Everything else is fine, but that is hideous. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Terrible front of the card. You can't even read the name. However, the back of the card is great with lots of stats, information and an action photo. ” -carthage44

“ 95 was the ugliest design year for Topps IMO. Baseball was awful too. ” -suomibear8

“ Nice - w/Stevie Y looking over his shoulder. The back of the card is too cluttered looking and the team name looking raised from the photo and the foil, cursive name doesn't do it for me. I do like the large photo with the white border. ” -vrooomed

“ Classic Red Wings. Can't get better than this. ” -jlaz10

“ Up close and personal... ” -CluelessJoe

“ Woot, woot!! He lives where I live! He did in 1995 I guess. Now? I don't know. ” -DanD

Set: 2004 Upper Deck MLS (Rate)

Card: #88 Dwayne De Rosario

“ Is he ducking for cover, getting ready to bounce it off his chest, or head butt it? I'll guess B. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ First glance - looks like the ball is pulling him toward it. ” -vrooomed

“ Nice shirt except for the underarm panel. ” -jlaz10

“ Everybody do the Spastic Chicken! ” -Luckynumber78

“ Is this supposed to be Luke lightsaber training with the practice drone? ” -revnorb

“ And I thought pitchers had strange contortions appear on cards. ” -koloth42

“ If the San Jose Sharks merged with the San Jose Earthquakes, then they would be the SarkQuakes... Quick! Get Syfy on the phone! I want a writing credit! ” -Howintensive

“ I think this guy could be one of Canada's best players ever. As for the card, this used to be my favorite MLS card design until the 2013 Topps came out. ” -deporcoruña

“ There was an older skit that made it into a Dr. Demento compilation called "Boot to the Head." I think this card should be the cover photo for the sequal, "Ball to the Face." Nya nya... ” -Dixxy

“ I wish I could find soccer cards in my area. I have a few I've bought from eBay, but my collection is far too small, considering how much soccer I watch. I have probably less than 25 cards. ” -switzr1

Set: 1991 Topps (Rate)

Card: #100a Don Mattingly

“ Mattingly, get rid of those sideburns!! ” -Howintensive

“ On his way to a HOF career till his back gave out on him. Finally starting to get the hang of being a manager ” -Young Kilo

“ Forget the errors on the card - Why is it that neither he nor Keith Hernandez are in the HOF? Mattingly was one of the best hitters and fielders (i.e., COMPLETE player) of the late 80s and early 90s. First basemen get no HOF love. ” -vrooomed

“ This is the first time since I've joined the Database that an error card has come up as Card of the Day. Cool! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ That Topps 40th anniversary logo up in the corner is really distracting. That couldn't go on the back instead? ” -revnorb

“ Gotta love error cards! They are like unintended short prints On the back of this card it shows that Mattingly had 10 hits during the 1990 season yet he had 16 doubles. ” -carthage44

“ Donny Baseball's getting a little scruffy here. That ain't the Yankee way, right? ” -jlaz10

Set: 1992 MotorArt Iditarod Sled Dog Race (Rate)

Card: #80 1984 Champion

“ Kind of cool that this sport got cards, but I think the dogs should have gotten more coverage than the people, personally. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ What? Sled Dog Race cards? How did I ever miss these? LOL! ” -carthage44

“ Cool dog scarf ” -Young Kilo

“ He is, the most interesting man in Alaska. Stay frosty, my friends. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ Lol....that's all I got on this one! ” -suomibear8

“ Shouldn't the dogs be on this card ? After all they did all the work! ” -uncaian

“ Speechless. Truly speechless. ” -vrooomed

“ This is what I call random. ” -volbox

“ Is that the "Home" or "Road" parka? I can never remember. ” -wamk

“ Unbelievable! ” -NJdevils

“ When I'm not celebrating my 1984 Dog Sledding Championship I enjoy a nice cold Dos Equis Stay Thirsty my friends. ” -Dos Equis Beer

“ This guy looks like a tool but, running and winning the Iditarod is quite an accomplishment. ” -PDIZZLE

“ They really did make a card for everything... didn't they? ” -Dixxy

“ Nothing says Iditarod like a fur coat. ” -jlaz10

“ Oh my god he's so glamourous ” -Luckynumber78

“ Wow ” -switzr1

“ I suddenly want to own every card in this set... ” -Howintensive

Set: 1990 Upper Deck (Rate)

Card: #741 Hector Villanueva

“ Sometimes I really wonder if baseball is a sport. Look at this guy's physique and tell me you don't agree. ” -deporcoruña

“ One of my favorite designs. Clean, basic, and bright. The early UD years were great. ” -suomibear8

“ this card design is one of the reasons upper deck no longer exists ” -Baserunner3

“ Although the Cubs wore plain blue numbers for the majority of their history, their current numbers with a red outline are superior. ” -jlaz10

“ Sideways stats....hate them. ” -NJdevils

“ May the force be with you! ” -koloth42

Set: 1993-94 SkyBox (Rate)

Card: #111 Blue Edwards

“ "You're my boy Blue" ” -jupiterhill

“ Maybe my favorite Sky Box basketball set. I don't mind most of their sets actually, except that first one. But this one always looked nice, and might actually be my favorite 93-94 set overall. Also, I like this Bucks uniform more than the one they replaced it with that year. ” -switzr1

“ I'm not into basketball but this is a very nice card. I like the action show and the card styling. ” -koloth42

“ Blue Edwards picked up his nickname when, as a baby, he nearly choked to death and his skin turned blue. One of his young relatives (I can't remember if it was a sibling or cousin) started calling him Blue after that. In an odd turn of fate, he never wore blue during his NBA career, although he played for multiple teams that wore blue years after he left. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ The purple Bucks! I like the two-tone green collar. ” -jlaz10
