Set: 1976 SSPC (Rate)

Card: #119 Dan Spillner

“ Now this is a real close up. I like the side burns. ” -deporcoruña

“ They called this set "The Pure Set." A maverick endeavor done without MLB or MLBPA licensing, there is strong suspicion that these sets were still be printed 25-30 years later after the fact by dealers who had acquired the original plates. ” -PlayerPCCollector

“ Yup, that's me. ” -NJDevils

“ What does SSPC stand for? I've never heard of this brand before. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ "No no no. I'm telling you it's right here. Not there. Here! Would you just bring the damn shovel over here and stop your pointless digging there? ... I'm just going to stare at you." ” -Dixxy

“ Wow very oddly framed picture on this card. Neither a portrait or a full action pose. Seems lost in the middle. I think I'll pass. ” -koloth42

“ Ah, the old panel-insert Padres cap. Interesting shape, though. ” -jlaz10

“ I took this photo of my dad... moments later Randy Jones, in the background, launched the ball right into his head...interrupting a little man loving, for just out of view to the left was Butch Metzger... ” -SaveDaKid

Set: 1989 Best Huntsville Stars (Rate)

Card: #20 Jeff Newman

“ Yup- the scan is cut off. ” -PlayerPCCollector

“ Reminds me of the 1982 Topps design ” -Mike67

“ Looks like my high school science teacher. ” -wamk

“ have we finally run out baseball cards that matter??? ” -uncaian

“ The design of the front of this uniform sort of reminds me of a hockey sweater, considering that the entire primary logo is on the chest instead of a wordmark. ” -jlaz10

“ Too old to run that far, man. the camera was only 15 feet away... ” -Dixxy

Set: 2007 Fleer (Rate)

Card: #50 Jason Marquis

“ No Photoshop? Didn't Fleer no the market trend. Overall the design is flat but nice image used. I guess the info box and the bottom just doesn't do it for me. ” -koloth42

“ About my only pet peave in collecting is that I really dislike it when the team and logo on the card do not match the uniform the player is pictured wearing. ” -Gunny

“ This is a great design...I was always a fan of Fleer. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ This card is from the time period in baseball cards after the practice of airbrushing uniforms for new teams players were on was abolished and the practice of simply making cards for the players old team instead of new team and before new uniforms were digitally edited. ” -jlaz10

“ These cards are out of focus and hard on the eyes. Fleer really needed work on these ” -biggiofn7

“ Blaaaaaaaannnnnd ” -Dixxy

Set: 2011 Topps Chrome (Rate)

Card: #9 Prince Fielder

“ Prince looks like a tyrannosaurus rex trampling the dirt and ferns beneath his feet, here. I don't think tiny T-rex arms would allow such a high slugging percentage, though. ” -Luckynumber78

“ Part of the new MLB competition to rival the NFL's "Punt, Pass, and Kick"; Prince is doing the "Hop, Skip, Home Run".. ” -wamk

“ This is a promotional still from "2009 NL West Pennant Chase: The Musical", which unfortunately closed after a short run. In Prince's case, a VERY short run. Some say the production was cursed by Guillermo Mota taking the phrase "break a leg" a little too literally. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ Fielder looks like he is running in low gravity, especially with the location of the logo. Like the 11 Topps design but not a huge fan of chrome. Too much a card traditionalist I suppose. ” -koloth42

“ "I believe I can fly!" ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Is that allowed by the laws of gravity? ” -Logged-out-user

“ Funny, he looks less than 400 pounds in this picture ” -Hollywood42

“ I really like how Topps Chrome makes the player pop out. ” -jlaz10

“ Watch this! I'm gonna hit the ball as far as I did when I was 12 and hit the upper deck of Tiger Stadium! (Yes that happened, I was there.) ” -joebing

“ He looks like he struck out really hard. ” -PDIZZLE

“ I really like these cards...especially the non-chrome version...small brand name, clear simple font, nice graphic for team logo, and lots of pic space... ” -SaveDaKid

Set: 1995 Topps (Rate)

Card: #117 Rafael Belliard

“ These cards look like they wanted to start erasing the image then decided the heck with it. ” -biggiofn7

“ I remember watching TBS broadcasts of Braves games Back when we had TBS.. Every time he came up the commentators mentioned the years he went without a homer.. ” -Mike67

“ See I'm a good player, my uniform is dirty. ” -koloth42

“ Not a bad card, although I wish they showed the base in the picture, as this looks like some failed attempt at a yoga pose ” -Hollywood42

“ The 100th Anniversary MLB logo patch seems very out of place here. ” -jlaz10

“ Love it when you can't read the name. Go Topps!!! ” -NJDevils

“ Is he practicing karmasutra? Maybe Tai bo! or recovering from the nastiest Ball-to-groin incident since I went to high school? I don't know. I just think these kind of candid shots should probably be banned... ” -Dixxy

“ I have never liked the font Topps used for names that year- 1994-95 for basketball. Not that it's hard to read or anything, I just never cared much for it. ” -Billy Kingsley

Set: 1971 Dell Today's Team Stamps (Rate)

Card: #NNO Jim Rooker

“ Would have been better without the signature...it's distracting. A stamp, eh? I feel "rooked" out of a traditional card today....lol ” -Billy Kingsley

“ The Royals KC logo will never get old. The way the K connects to the C is a classic. ” -jlaz10

“ "Dude! He got on a Dell!" ” -UNC_Samurai

“ A decent pitcher. I remember him mainly with the Pirates. ” -NJDevils

“ Something about this appeals to me ” -Hollywood42

Set: 1987 Leaf/Donruss (Rate)

Card: #240 Joe Cowley

“ The White Sox have always had a tradition of having the craziest uniforms. ” -deporcoruña

“ I had forgotten how ugly those old Chicago uniforms were! ” -wamk

“ This guy doesn't really look like he plays baseball ” -Hollywood42

“ Something wrong with a White Sox player wearing a red shirt....just doesn't seem like a winning combo....Joe Cowley has the look of, "you want to make a card of me?? Why?" ” -flcardtrader

“ Interesting design, but why does he look so pained? ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I thought pro athletes were in "good" shape... ” -Dixxy

“ The only way to tell Leaf from Donruss on the front beside the logo is that there is a white DROP shadow behind "87" ” -jlaz10

Set: 2000 Pacific Omega (Rate)

Card: #13 Chipper Jones

“ Chipper, here, is participating in a new Olympic event: Pole vaulting off of Art Deco architecture. ” -Luckynumber78

“ Not much to complain about here. Great image, graphics aren't too distracting. I like it. ” -wamk

“ Chippppppppa ” -cynicalbuddha

Set: 1986 McDonald's All-Stars (Rate)

Card: #75b Rulon Jones

“ I had these when I was a kid, I use to love going to McD's to get them. Dont know what ever happened to them. ” -Tigerfan22

“ Look at the other guy, he's hanging on for dear life. Rulon is just beasting on this guy. ” -PDIZZLE

“ As someone who was just getting into football cards - and becoming a fan of the Broncos - at that time, I learned to really hate regional releases because of these sets. Eastern North Carolina didn't see any of these, not even Redskins cards. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ What an ugly design. It does however, make me want a Big Mac. ” -wamk

“ The red boxes are kind of distracting, but an otherwise solid design. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ The Broncos classic D helmet logo is much better than today's stallion. ” -jlaz10

“ Those probably tasted better than the burgers. ” -Logged-out-user

“ Awe... They're going to go to dinner after the game and enjoy a quarter pounder with fries... OOOH Lady and the tramp moment coming up!!!! Those'll be some nastily long genetically modified fries though.... *Shudders* ” -Dixxy

“ They look like they're trying to kiss ” -Hollywood42

“ I remember these cards. This came out when you could buy just about any kind of product and get cards inside. ” -biggiofn7

Set: 2008 Upper Deck (Rate)

Card: #556 Jeff Suppan

“ I really liked the 2008 and 2009 UD sets, but the 2010 set took a step in the wrong direction. Regardless, the hobby needs UD back on the scene ” -Hollywood42

“ The Brewers road unis would look better if the jerseys said "Milwaukee" instead of the team name. ” -jlaz10
