Set: 1994 Collector's Choice - Silver Signature (Rate)

Card: #452 Tim Naehring

“ Silver signatures, huh? Today you got platinum signatures, gold signatures, copper signatures, red, blue and every other color in the rainbow signatures. Not to mention each of those signatures has it's own parallel. ” -Young Kilo

“ Looks like he's bent over to fist-bump a toddler on the way to the parking lot. ” -revnorb

“ My guess is Kenny Lofton was safe. ” -duaned99

“ I don' know if I've ever seen a card that had the same non-subject player in different front and back images. As a Kenny Lofton collector, I feel like I need to get this card. ” -jackal726

“ Excellent scan. The first Collector's Choice set is a good one because it features large photos with little distraction. The NBA version of this parallel has silver borders, interesting to see the MLB version doesn't. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ You're it. ” -vrooomed

“ Interesting that the two photos were from the same game. ” -jlaz10

Set: 1991-92 Score American (Rate)

Card: #276 Jeff Brown

“ That's just an ugly looking card ” -Young Kilo

“ Team is Blues so the card theme is purple...that makes sense! Right? ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Great player,I remember him from Quebec.I liked this set for the back info & most of the front shots were great,BUT did we really need Score American,Canadian,& Canadian Bilingual ? ” -uncaian

“ The Blues looked best in blue and gold, but red surprisingly worked for them, too. ” -jlaz10

“ Every time I buy more cards, this 1990 and 1991 pro set always show up and I sigh. I'm not sure how many more doubles no one wants I can accommodate. ” -Dixxy

“ I give it a C+ ” -NJDevils

“ One of the 1st hockey sets I started collecting. I didn't like the Blue/Red Canadian set for some reason though. ” -suomibear8

Set: 1992 Topps Kids (Rate)

Card: #76 Cecil Fielder

“ I liked this set I have to be honest. I was 10 at the time, but even today I still like the idea of a set for kids. ” -jupiterhill

“ Remember kids it's not pronounced Cecil it's pronounced Cessil. ” -addysdaddy

“ I've been collecting since I was 4 years old in 1988, and when I was a kid this design would not have been interesting to me, and it's still not. Although my tastes have changed (I used to really like cards that had just the player superimposed over a digitally created background where now I almost despise them) I never liked being "talked down" to by my cards. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Looks like he ate a couple of kids ” -Young Kilo

“ Love the Q & A in the back, not sure how the background colors around his stats correlate with anything, but hey some moron got paid big to make this set... ” -SaveDaKid

“ The back illustration explains steroids. ” -jlaz10

Set: 2012 MultiAd Sacramento River Cats (Rate)

Card: #20 Stephen Parker

“ Great team logo! Overall excellent card design, although the first letter of his first name should have been capitalized. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Would make a nice placemat. I don't like it when they use the same photo on front and back. ” -NJdevils

“ I like this AAA uniform. Nothing like their affiliate, so it creates a unique identity. ” -jlaz10

“ Here's my pitch America, starting next year incorporate relegation into baseball, bottom 3 teams from the National league & American league go down top 3 from AAA that are "national league" teams, ditto for American. And do the same for AA & A ball. It would allow local clubs, small clubs, to have a chance to build up off of yearly performance, rather than just shipping their players off to the pro club. Obviously I'm stealing this from futbol, but I think it would spice up all American sports if we stopped allowing teams to tank their seasons for draft picks. Fans would be more passionate, loud, & supportive since they could be relegated, lose top players to better clubs or finances, as well as the opportunity to play against the best. I can see it now in the future the Sacramento River Cats in the World Series against the Asheville Tourists... ” -SaveDaKid

“ I like the team name and logo (although, if hadn't seen the name, I'd probably have thought that was a bear). For grins I searched for a set on eBay...not a cheap set for 36 cards. Once again, refreshing to see a brand I never heard of before. ” -bkklaos

“ Yeah! Stephen Parker! umm, I'm a devoted A's fan and I put this card up and I'm still not sure who this is. It's not Jarrod Parker's brother. ” -ray fosse's ghost

“ Looks like an old Sports Center design. ” -addysdaddy

“ The cat logo looks like the Pep Boys logo, and the whole design kind of looks like a high-tech version of the set of the Flip Wilson show. ” -revnorb

Set: 1993 Playoff Contenders (Rate)

Card: #125 Patrick Bates

“ Excellent card front, but the back could use some stats. The large clear picture is a plus, but the text could have been made smaller, and some stats added in, to make it better. Still, a very solid card. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Cards without stats are pointless to me. ” -SSG Temple

“ Team name would be nice on front especially for moveable teams like Raiders and Rams and Cardinals. Tough inserting team names into the DB when the card companies dont even know the city. ” -NJdevils

“ Black and silver. 'Nuf said. ” -jlaz10

“ My first full card (front & back scan) as CotD. Sorry for the poor quality of the card. Got a unopened box of these cheap recently...I know why now. Cards stick together after years of storage. It was hard to salvage many cards. Anyone has a better quality card, please replace my scans! ” -bkklaos

Set: 1952 Topps (Rate)

Card: #206 Joe Ostrowski

“ I was going to say that he looks more like a math teacher than anything else, and then I read the back of the card, and see that his nickname was "The Professor". It fits! I just looked him up on Wikipedia, if that is correct, he passed away in 2003. It also says he actually was a school teacher for three years before his MLB career and went back to it when he was done playing. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Sad and determined look. ” -Don41

“ Bueller....Bueller....Bueller ” -SSG Temple

“ A great card. Yes, players had to work in the off-season back then. And he had the usual 3 years of military service. Are today's players spoiled? ” -NJdevils

“ That is awesome that Harry Truman got his own card. AND he's a competent basketball referee! Take that Violet Palmer! ” -revnorb

“ The description on the back perfectly sums up this picture. ” -jlaz10

“ Get this guy a pair of rec-specs!!! ” -SaveDaKid

“ 1952...when Game Used meant the card had been acquired by playing topsies are knock-down. (For you youngsters, google flipping cards) ” -flcardtrader

Set: 2010 Topps Chrome (Rate)

Card: #48 Justin Upton

“ I miss the Topps Chrome brand, I wish the NBA hadn't taken away Topps' license. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Nap time! ” -vrooomed

“ Is he playing marbles? ” -NJdevils

“ Yes, chrome cards are hard to scan. ” -PlayerPCCollector

“ Wow, the chrome printing is really off. ” -jlaz10

“ Interesting picture to chose for a guy known for being a hitter. Great fact about him being one of the six youngest NL players for the last three seasons. Even if he hasn't played a full season yet when the card was printed. ” -yokonashiwa

“ roadkill ” -volbox

“ This is a dumb card ” -Hollywood42

Set: 2005 Bowman Heritage (Rate)

Card: #99 Mike Hampton

“ Is this a bad scan or is the card supposed to be blurry? I think it's the latter. Doesn't work for me, I like my cards in focus. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Ahh, Mike Hampton. I remember how happy we were in Denver when we signed him. Was by far and away the richest contract in sports at the time. Hampton told the Press he made his decision to come to Colorado based "on the schools". Riiiiight. He did jack around a dozen HR while here, including one on opening day. He'll of an overall athlete, but his salary damaged my Rockies for years.. ” -wamk

“ I like some of these throwback sets....I just wish they wouldn't do them every year. ” -suomibear8

“ Ah, the 1951 Bowman design. The simplicity. The lack of real competition (at this point - have you seen the Topps Red Backs/Blue Backs?). Looks a little odd in the 2.5" x 3.5" format. Still, wouldn't mind if a complete set of these fell in my lap! ” -vrooomed

“ Just plain awful. I think I'll have breakfast. ” -NJdevils

“ Fifty years' worth of digital graphics technology later and all they could figure out how to do correctly was to make a black box with some letters in it. ” -revnorb

“ These were the first templated BP jerseys. The basic options were shoulder loops and shoulder piping. ” -jlaz10

“ I suspect the Braves would love their money back for this decision. ” -addysdaddy

Set: 1989 CMC Syracuse Chiefs (Rate)

Card: #18 Hector De La Cruz

“ Great design. I could not think of a way to improve this card. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ The graphics on this card looks like the introduction of Action News at 11 in any major city USA ” -addysdaddy

“ SKY CHIEFS BABY!!!! Sniff sniff... takes me back ” -SSG Temple

“ The Syracuse Chiefs. Formerly the Syracuse SkyChiefs. And before that, the Syracuse Chiefs. Hey Teams, settle on one name please. Do you hear that Tampa, Anaheim Angels or whoever you are. Well done minor league card. ” -NJDevils

“ Great minor league uniform. Takes aspects from their affiliate (Blue Jays) and adds some unique parts as well. ” -jlaz10

Set: 1929 Kashin Publications (Rate)

Card: #70 Harry Rice

“ Ooh, vintage. This is one big card! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Nice piece of vintage ! Very cool ! ” -uncaian

“ Apparently the only stat category he ever led the league in, was errors for his position. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ What a great picture! Nice to see the pants up to the knees. I am waiting for some current player to catch his spikes on his on pants and fall over. Plus this guy is just looks classier than Sabathia and his ilk. ” -NJdevils

“ Team, anyone? ” -jlaz10

“ On my screen, he's staring at my username and it's creepy ” -Hollywood42
