Random Card of the Day

Monday, September 15, 2014

Set: 2009 Topps (Rate)

Card: #30a Ken Griffey Jr.

“ As a White Sox fan, it was great having Griffey, a future Hall of Famer and a great person on the team even for a short period of time. ” -carthage44

“ Ooooh!!!!!ooooh!!!! Mr. Guilen sir can I bat clean up. ” -PALE HOSER FAN SINCE 1959

“ It's like seeing Willie Mays as a Met. It should of never happened ” -Young Kilo

“ I really like Griffey. I really like the White Sox logo. I really do not like the White Sox logo on Griffey. Too bad he didn't spend his whole career in Seattle. ” -duaned99

“ Great time to break out this story - Flashback to 1988. Jr is playing for the Vermont Mariners (AA, Eastern League) and they are playing in Reading, PA. My best friend goes up to Jr and says, "I'll buy you a hot dog and a Pepsi if you sign 2 baseballs for me." Jr replies, "We can't have food in the dugout, so I can't have a hot dog, but make it 2 Pepsi's, and you have a deal." SO, off to the concession stand we go to retrieve two Pepsi's, and he hands them into the dugout. About 20 seconds later, out pops 2 baseballs, signed by Jr. He still has one of them. I was not as forward thinking then - I didn't get one. ” -vrooomed

Set: 1981 Topps (Rate)

Card: #135 Gorman Thomas

“ Love it! ” -carthage44

“ First set I ever collected. Also, Bruce Sutter striking out Gorman Thomas to end the 1982 World Series is my favorite sports memory of my childhood. ” -switzr1

“ This guy hit more home runs than Paul Molitor, Robin Yount, Kirk Gibson and has 9 more than Derek Jeter. However, a .225 career batting average isn't gonna punch your ticket to the Hall (for what that's worth nowadays). ” -Id8jlb8666

“ Outfield, based on the photo I can only assume, means outside the field, looking in? ” -Billy Kingsley

“ This is really a lame card design, but it's also a fine portrait of Stormin' Gorman, because it makes you realize that in a not-too-radically-different timeline, he could be looking out thru barbed wire in a prison exercise yard in the same pose. ” -revnorb

“ Another one of my scans and in a set that I like. The 1981 Topps set contains some Baseball greats while the set is reasonably priced. ” -sltyeager

“ Looks like he's waiting to be adopted. ” -MAS

“ YES!!! ” -SSG Temple

“ Back when spring training fields were high school-quality. ” -jlaz10

Set: 1999 Topps - New Breed (Rate)

Card: #NB9 Derek Jeter

“ Decent enough design, but i don't like the photograph. Bat is barely visible and he's just in a weird position all around. ” -switzr1

“ Was this a scene from "Yellow Submarine?" ” -revnorb

“ This is what a Yankee game looks like to Keith Richards. ” -Id8jlb8666

“ Very distracting card. Looks like something the old Pacific would produce ” -NJDevils

“ This is what happens when Topps tries to imitate Pacific. ” -DaClyde

“ Looks like a Finest card. ” -carthage44

“ 1990s - ugh. ” -vrooomed

“ The one and only. ” -jlaz10

Set: 1990 Score (Rate)

Card: #668 Tom Goodwin

“ One trick pony who parlayed that one trick (speed) into a 14 year career. ” -Young Kilo

“ The "90 Score" bit in the corner is sort of foolish looking, especially when coupled with the "1st Round Pick" thing, but I don't think this is too terrible of a design. I wish it would have "DODGERS" somewhere in big letters, though, like in '67/'69. ” -revnorb

Set: 2002-03 Fleer Box Score (Rate)

Card: #52 Antawn Jamison

“ I loved this set when it was new, but now I am just indifferent on it. I did complete it though. Jamison never found much success, even though he was a very good player in his prime. Unfortunately for him most of the time he was the only really great player on whatever team he was on, and when he wasn't, he was traded away quickly. He was still in the League last year, at the start of the year, before being traded at the trade deadline and waived. It seems unlikely he will find a new contract as his output has significantly dropped off from his prime. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ It would be nice if they picked white or gray for the front, and white or black for the back. At least they were trying a NEW design, and not something from the past. ” -vrooomed

“ Blah! ” -NJdevils

“ Thank god the Warriors went back to their classic blue and gold color scheme. The uniform shown here was absolutely horrendous. ” -jlaz10

“ It is a basketball card. I don't get too excited about them. Yes, it is a great picture, but I just can't be in love with basketball cards. ” -yokonashiwa

Set: 1988-89 O-Pee-Chee Stickers (Rate)

Card: #257 Mike Foligno

“ So, if 257 is Mike Foligno, who is #125? ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Never liked any of the sticker cards. ” -carthage44

“ Does it get any worse? ” -SSG Temple

“ I liked this set for the action shots & trivia,but the rookie subset was ugly. ” -uncaian

“ Two great sweaters that their respective teams need to go back to. ” -jlaz10

“ Looks like a barcode with a picture pasted over the top of it. ” -Id8jlb8666

“ Wow! One of my scans! Ugly one, though. I think it was printed off-center. ” -DanD

Set: 1991 Impel Marvel Universe (Rate)

Card: #94 Silver Surfer vs. Galactus

“ It's funny, I've never really been a Marvel fan, I grew up a DC fan, but I still have a bunch of Marvel cards in my collection...yet none from this set, despite having a complete set of the year before and then multiple cards from the years after it. I don't know how I missed this one. (Marvel's movies are much, much better though) ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Galactus sure can throw a heater! ” -flcardtrader

“ This set is what got me interested in comics after I traded a bunch of baseball dupes for a box of these. ” -jackal726

“ What is it with these cards? ” -jlaz10

“ No contest here. ” -DaClyde

“ 1991 - the year they made a card for just about ANYTHING. See example to the left. ” -vrooomed

“ One day I should buy this set. I love comic books. ” -DanD

Set: 2011 Topps Triple Threads - Flashback Relics (Rate)

Card: #TTFR-16 Ryne Sandberg

“ SWEET CARD! Always liked the Game Used Bat cards. I am a White Sox fan but I have always been a big fan of Sandberg. ” -carthage44

“ Very cool card, but they should have gone with a capitol E...looks like Ryno instead of Ryne on the card front. I notice there are two different pieces of wood based on the grain as well. Probably three, separated by the stars. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ The picture on the front is from later in his career, while on the back is from the 80s on the road. ” -jlaz10

“ I like the design of these memorabilia nickname cards. ” -suomibear8

Set: 2007-08 Upper Deck Victory - EA Sports Face-Off (Rate)

Card: #FO6 Dion Phaneuf

“ Not too bad of a design. I wonder if this was an insert or a promo to the game? I don't know enough about Hockey cards to know. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Dion love or hate him,you got to admit the boy can hit & hit hard.Not a bad card set,kind of blah. ” -uncaian

“ Can we get any more logos on the front. Back is weak as well. ” -NJdevils

“ It's odd to think that this uniform isn't that old but seems like an antique because it's pre-EDGE. ” -jlaz10

“ Not a bad design, but all those company logos at the bottom make it look like a European soccer jersey. ” -revnorb

“ Ugh. Video game tie-in sports cards... ” -Howintensive

Set: 1996 Bowman (Rate)

Card: #293 Jason Kendall

“ Since I didn't comment on the prior card, I must say that I really like the front of this. Only improvement would be the name. Kind of gets lost in the photo. ” -NJdevils

“ Coincidence is funny - the day this is offered to write up is the same day another 1996 Bowman card was RCOTD! Not a bad card, but still has too many 90's styles to make it a "good" card. ” -vrooomed

“ Looks like a techie version of those wood-paneled Topps cards from 1962, minus the funky charm. ” -revnorb

“ That is some very wide pants striping. ” -jlaz10
