Set: 2011 Topps - Diamond Anniversary (Rate)

Card: #258 Rafael Soriano

“ Some cards just don't want to be scanned. This one is so shiny it probably glows in the dark. ” -ray fosse's ghost

“ This card has to look awesome in person, Topps has always had some neat foil effects. I'm surprised this wasn't serially numbered, although I may just be missing it somewhere. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ He throws so hard that he shatters his card! ” -koloth42

“ Ugh....I can't see ” -suomibear8

“ That is one sparkly card. ” -wamk

“ oooo shiney! ” -Colts12

“ such a sick card ” -Erik_Young

“ Loving how you can't see the background at all ” -eyoung11

Set: 1986 Fax-Pax Football Greats (Rate)

Card: #12 Tom Finney

“ That's not a football card! ” -ray fosse's ghost

“ Hmm, born 1922...I think that makes him the oldest person to appear as Card of the Day that's not from Baseball. This looks like it might be post card sized, certainly gives lots of room for text! (that's a plus) ” -Billy Kingsley

“ A one team man, Finney played his entire career for Preston North End and also earned 76 caps for England. On my list of things to see is his statue "The Splash" located at the National Football Museum. I love the look of the England shirt and the old football on this card. ” -Gunny

“ I thought he was holding a coconut. A new ball would have been nice for the photo. ” -NJDevils

“ Never heard of him ” -eyoung11

“ Wow...I'm a huge futbol lover...nice England international crd her...not gonna act like I know this chump but gonna have to look into this set...killer ball.. ” -SaveDaKid

“ Very nice. It is great to be able see cards of old soccer greats. I wonder what the current stars would manage with those leather heavy soccer balls used back then? ” -dobbie

Set: 1984 Topps (Rate)

Card: #775 Dave Parker

“ This card is the same age as me. I think that is the first time a card from 1984 has come up as Card of the Day. I like the design, too. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ All those All-Star years and he never led the NL in a single category? ” -UNC_Samurai

“ One of my favorite all-time Pirates. I was lucky enough to find a Dave Parker black Pirates jersey at TJ Maxx, made by Mitchell and Ness I believe, for $35. The most recent Pirates game I went to this season I was the only one with a Dave Parker shirt. ” -Gunny

“ Classic Topps design. Didn't get any of these growing up but I do like them. ” -koloth42

“ Nice ” -Hollywood42

Set: 2005 Score (Rate)

Card: #146 Chris Chambers

“ I like the design of this card, but I always thought the Score logo was a bit too big, it took away from the picture too much. ” -jupiterhill

“ He's holding the football and it says "SCORE" next to his hand. Does that mean the end zone is near? ” -ray fosse's ghost

“ Nice catch. ” -koloth42

“ This is a pretty lousy scan...hard to tell how the card really looks, or what it says. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Seems like there's been a rash of low-quality scans getting randomly selected lately. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ Yuck ” -Hollywood42

Set: 1982 Donruss (Rate)

Card: #165 Ron LeFlore

“ The first 3 years of Donruss card design didn't have much imagination. Same border and logo each year. Best thing about the early Donurss cards was the gum (so much better than Topps and Fleer), it was actually soft. ” –CluelessJoe

“ He damn near in the camera ” -Young Kilo

“ Another set from my childhood. I have a few cards from this set around somewhere in my house. ” -koloth42

“ Remember the made-for-tv movie about him back in the late 1970's? I think LaVar Burton played him.. ” -wamk

“ If we do this super close up shot, no one will notice we are in an empty stadium and that you're not wearing a jersey with your name on it, just a practice uni... ” -SaveDaKid

Set: 2007 Topps Heritage III WWE (Rate)

Card: #4 Stone Cold Steve Austin

“ Wow, two wrestling cards in a row. My friends from high school would be loving this...if they collected cards, anyway! Design is cool...I wish they did more Heritage sets. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Wow! (that's all I'm saying) ” -ray fosse's ghost

“ WWE cards do nothing for me. ” -koloth42

“ the greatest. ” -titanup74

“ Stone Cold Steve Austin ” -eyoung11

“ Well, it was better than the last wrestling card... ” -Hollywood42

“ If that shirt is not a promotion for drunk driving... I don't know what is. Hope he's goin' up against MADD. Showdown between alcoholics and angry mothers. I would SO watch that! ” -Dixxy

“ Please tell this dude to start wearing a bra. ” -redsfan1961

“ I didnt think there could be anything worse than the last wrestling card. Guess I was wrong. ” -NJDevils

Set: 2011 Grandstand Bowie Baysox (Rate)

Card: #23 Chorye Spoone

“ I really like his name. I'm just saying. ” -ray fosse's ghost

“ Thank goodness his parent's never named him Little... ” -Dixxy

“ What's a Chorye Spoone? ” -Young Kilo

“ Cool design...it seems very much reminiscent of the 1980s without being too over the top. It also kind of reminds me of the rookie design in 2003-04 Fleer Tradition basketball...I like it! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Little on the plain side but not bad for a MiLB team set. I'd take it if no one else wants it. :-D ” -koloth42

“ Someone at Grandstand never learned the ins and outs of typesetting. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ Reminiscent of the 1984 Fleer set- which I've always liked. Picked this set up at a Bowie game in 2012. Love going to minor league games, but the Bowie ballpark is underwhelming compared to its contemporaries. ” -PlayerPCCollector

“ Meh ” -Hollywood42

“ I've never been a fan of teams named after unreal objects. For example, what exactly is a Baysock? ” -jlaz10

“ Parents these days with their spelling. Im going to name my kid Qxzghlasdflin, and have them pronounce it Jason ” -eyoung11

Set: 2008 Topps Updates & Highlights - Ring of Honor World Series Champions (Rate)

Card: #RH-DS Duke Snider

“ Cool design, both front and back! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Like these a bit better for the current year's champions. It loses a bit to have a bunch printed for prior years. ” -koloth42

“ The old Vaudevillian-style Dodgers hat! ” -jlaz10

“ Liked this set. Started to put it together, but for some reason I abandoned it a few years back ” -Hollywood42

Set: 1979 Topps Star Trek: The Motion Picture (Rate)

Card: #30 The Andorians

“ I hate doing puzzle back cards...many of them are ambiguous which way they should go...I'm not sure if I have all the Star Wars card backs I've posted going the right direction. At least this one is easy, feet are usually a dead giveaway. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Are the two in white tag team champions? Why they get belts on? ” -Young Kilo


“ I don't even remember Andorians in that film. Granted, that may be the most forgettable Trek film with the original cast. ” -DanD

“ Star Wars > Star Trek ” -Hollywood42

“ Definitely cardworthy. ” -jlaz10
