Set: 2004 Bowman Chrome Draft Picks & Prospects (Rate)

Card: #BDP14 Zack Greinke

“ A young Zack Greinke. Nice posed picture. His autograph looks like it reads Jil Quiche. Great looking card. ” -yokonashiwa

“ Chromes just don't scan very well.. One thing i don't like is how they warp unless they are kept tight in a box, and even then they can stick together.. Always enjoyed the Chrome line, but their production needs work.. ” -lyfestory

“ Why do they insist on the fake autographs? (At least, I think it's fake, if not, I'll shut up...) ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I never liked the black Royals hats. It never seemed to fit their color scheme. ” -jupiterhill

“ the black border cards take away from the pic, in my opinion. I'd also like to see the players' names take precedence over the brand name, unlike this offering ” -SSG Temple

“ Greinke was a punk then as he still is one now! ” -PDIZZLE

“ Geez, looks like something you would see next to a casket. More fitting for an Abe Lincoln card. ” -NJDevils

“ I like his menacing look on the back photo. It reminds me of the bagger at the grocery store last night when I told him I didn't need any help carrying my bags to the car. ” -jackal726

“ Chrome cards - Tough to scan but nice in hand. Wouldn't mind if this was in my collection, but sadly, it's not. ” -vrooomed

“ Greinke and Kershaw. Baseball's best right hander and left hander ” -Young Kilo

“ They're the Royals, not the Blacks. Wear blue, for goodness sake. ” -jlaz10

Set: 1998-99 UD Choice - Prime Choice Reserve (Rate)

Card: #184 Pierre Turgeon

“ I really like when companies use the same designs for all their sports in the same year. This is either a level 2 or 3 parallel, but it's done differently than the NBA version of same, which did not have words going up and down in the background. At least, if it's a level 2 parallel, I don't remember if the NBA had a level 3; if they did, I never got any. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ This card just looks like a kid scrawled all over it. Interesting to see a design I remember from baseball transferred over to hockey, though. ” -Luckynumber78

“ A big reason why I don't care for parallel sets is ones with little effort like this. ” -DanD

“ Decent front, again would be nice to have the team logo. Oh, and remove the ghost "choice reserve" from the front. It detracts. Back would be better with a larger number for us old guys. ” -NJDevils

“ This was a nice looking & affordable set for collectors.Turgeon is one of the best. ” -uncaian

“ They have the logo on the back, why not the front? OK action, at least he isn't just standing there with his stick in his hand. ” -SSG Temple

“ Nice set, nothing great about it. This particular parallel was a bit lame back then and is even more now. At least they were serial numbered. ” -vrooomed

“ I know it's a parallel, but that watermark text on the card is annoying ” -Hollywood42

“ The Blues looked best in simple blue and gold. No red, no navy, just royal blue and gold. ” -jlaz10

Set: 1993 Topps - Inaugural Marlins (Rate)

Card: #660 Alan Trammell

“ Put him in the HOF! ” -jupiterhill

“ Slaps forehead for mis-spelling Chrome as Chroma on the card that came up today. This card seems somewhat strange, as it appears to me that Topps stamped a player who played for a different team with the new team's logo? Granted, I don't know much about baseball, but I find that strange. Maybe he was taken in the Expansion draft I'm sure they must have held, and that just isn't reflected on his team listing on this card? I don't know, but like I say, it may just be my general lack of knowledge when it comes to anything not NASCAR or basketball. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ great player, not-so-great Topps set... but at least they had the colors pretty accurate for the team... ” -lyfestory

“ Interesting Tigers uni. Must have been a BP jersey, because that never made the field. ” -jlaz10

“ If you are going to make the photograph a portrait, don't make the card a landscape. Leave the landscape for action shots....or team photos. ” -NJDevils

“ Didn't even know this set existed. ” -volbox

“ I... Don't understand... A card in an Inaugural Marlins set that isn't a Marlin.. Why?? ” -Mike67

Set: 1972-73 O-Pee-Chee (Rate)

Card: #299 Chris Bordeleau

“ I like this card, everything except the team name, which looks kinda cheesy. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Hockey... there's always a home for you ugly white guys! ” -SSG Temple

“ The Dom Casual typeface was strictly rationed in Manitoba. However, periods were in ample supply! ” -revnorb

“ I have cards for you ” -Jason

“ I know I have some "vintage" cards from this era (maybe even some hockey)...I'm sure my cards won't be in the great shape this card appears to be! Classic! I don't speak/read French, but I love the O-Pee-Chee line with the International flavor! ” -bkklaos

“ One of my favorite set designs. The 1972-73 O-Pee-Chee, as shown here, also contained players from the upstart World Hockey Association. O-Pee-Chee hockey sets were always bigger than there Topps counterparts, that always bothered me because O-Pee-Chee were much harder for me to obtain as a kid. ” -Gunny

“ This set had some of the best action shots and worst haircuts.I love this set ,definately one of my faves. ” -uncaian

“ Great Card! And I can put my high school French to good use. ” -NJDevils

“ The look on his face is just as silly as this card looks. ” -PDIZZLE

“ Reminds me of 1968 baseball. Nice set. ” -vrooomed

“ That is a rather interesting uniform. I don't know if the photo is off centre or not, but I do know that was a major issue with OPC.. ” -Mike67

“ Why the . after Chris? Is Chris short for something? ” -jackal726

“ When you think Winnipeg Jets, you think of their famous airjet logo, not this one. Nice sweater, though. ” -jlaz10

“ They never use these jerseys when doing throwbacks....I like it! ” -suomibear8

Set: 1984-85 Topps (Rate)

Card: #108 Pierre Larouche

“ I like the front, but not much of a fan of the back. ” -jupiterhill

“ Great card design. I always like seeing cards from 1984, the same year I was "issued". ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Lucky Pierre! I still remember those heady days early in his career when a local Pittsburgh radio station auctioned off a "Date with Pierre." He was, afterall, the local heart-throb for the ladies when the Penguins brought him into the club. ” -Gunny

“ Great player & this is a nice set.Yzerman & Barasso rookies!! ” -uncaian

“ The Rangers road blues were interesting that they read "New York" instead of the classic Rangers. ” -jlaz10

“ A great set. The back is just about perfect. ” -NJDevils

Set: 1981 Donruss Dallas (Rate)

Card: #23a Outdoor fears

“ I bet what they fear is seeing some of the comments from those who hate non-sports cards (for some unknown reason!) ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Damn. You know what? No comment. Just no comment ” -Young Kilo

“ LOL... The original Brokeback Mountain!!! ” -SSG Temple

“ The answer to the question "How bad can a card look when we are producing the set as quickly as possible to capitalize on the popularity of a TV show?".. ” -wamk

“ Okay then ” -jlaz10

“ Who killed J.R.? ” -CluelessJoe

“ this has to be the rarest set in the world because I can't imagine anyone buying these cards ” -NJDevils

“ not touching this one with a 10 foot pole..... ” -Flcardtrader

“ I admit I was but a wee lad when Dallas was on, but I sure don't remember it seeming this cozy... ” -jackal726

“ I'm not recalling these players? Tom Landry with his hat off & a young Jerry Jones? And what were these two doing? Looks like they just got caught spooning! ” -SaveDaKid

Set: 2006 Topps (Rate)

Card: #358 Jamie Moyer

“ Great design. It kind of reminds me of a 70s design, but 70s card designs were great so that is definitely a good thing. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Not calling Moyer old or anything. But word is he use to strike out Adam on a regular basis back in the day. In front of Eve ” -Young Kilo

“ Wasn't this the year he won the 'Julio Franco AARP Player-Member of the Year' award? ” -UNC_Samurai

“ If he could throw the knuckleball, he'd probably still be pitching. ” -DaClyde

“ There's something to be said for a guy like Moyer, who just pitches and pitches and pitches for years and years until the cleats get worn down and he's got to hang them up. ” -Luckynumber78

“ The color scheme on the front is awful. Hard to believe that the front is better than the back. I give this a "D-" ” -NJDevils

“ The Mariners uniforms are great, but would look better in their old blue and gold scheme. ” -jlaz10

“ Since I tend to have a soft spot for lefty pitchers, IU graduates, and the Cubbies, Moyer was one of my favorite pitchers to watch. Despite having a fastball that might not be fast enough to get a ticket in a school zone, and being overshadowed his rookie season by some guy named Maddux,he pitched in the major in 4 decades. ” -SYTopps

“ Pretty nice card design. Very nice person on it. ” -vrooomed

Set: 1960 Nu-Card Hi-Lites (Rate)

Card: #62 Aaron's Bat Beats Yankees In Series

“ Very interesting. The faux newspaper always looks good. I can honestly say I've never heard of this set...or brand, even...before right now. Just another reason to love the Database, learning new stuff! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Nice RCOTD - I had never heard of this set, probably because of the non-standard size. Looks like a real nice set to own. ” -vrooomed

“ Brings back memories! It was a different type of card back then. A set that looked like newspapers, date and all. It was rough collecting two different sets back then, money was scarce even if the packs were only a nickel and Topps had the "penny packs" too. ” -NJDevils

“ Oh, how much has changed in baseball cards. ” -jlaz10

“ Any day that the Yankees lose is automatically a good day ” -Hollywood42

“ Love the classics! What a great set! ” -flcardtrader

Set: 1992-93 Topps (Rate)

Card: #299 Litterial Green

“ After losing the NBA license after 1981-82, this was the first Topps set after they got the license back. It also had the first parallel in NBA card history. It was also the first set where Topps listed league leaders in the stats on the back of the cards, something they did until they lost the license during 2009-10. Mr. Green was not a league leader, in fact, he was a rookie so had no league stats, it's hard to spot but there is a gold foil 92 Draft Pick over his left leg. I always liked the Magic pinstripes, they are wearing them as retro jerseys now. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Pinstripes! ” -jlaz10

“ Great back, easy to read. Decent front though I would like a team logo ” -NJDevils

“ I am litterially too impressed with this card of the day. ” -Luckynumber78

“ I'm imagining that he is going up for a dunk and is going to come up way short and fail miserably. ” -Hollywood42

“ no thought, no logo... just keep pumping em out, ppl will buy them ” -SSG Temple

“ Topps Exec: "Hey, I have an idea. Let's use the same exact design for all 4 sports!" Rest of committee: "What a great idea, boss! Wow, why didn't we ever think of that?" I can tell you why - it's boring. Boring as HECK. At least the BACK is a little different. ” -vrooomed

“ Sometimes i wonder where people come up with their kid's names... This Topps set was somewhat uninspiring to me back in the day.. ” -lyfestory

“ This was the card most likely to show up when you thought you finally had a pack with the Shaq Rookie. ” -SYTopps

Set: 2008 Topps Chrome (Rate)

Card: #TC185 Jamaal Charles

“ Really good scan for a Chroma card! Scanning chrome and Finest cards is not something I particularly enjoy, although better than doing mirror foils. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Not a huge fan of the "Rookie Day" poses. If they are going to do poses for football cards, they should go back to the old poses ala '60 Fleer Bill Atkins. Now THERE is a pose! ” -SSG Temple

“ They at least could have put the team name letters in footballs instead of basketballs. My declining interest in football is demonstrated by the fact that I have never heard of this 1000 yd rusher (I had to look that up). ” -NJDevils

“ You feared facing the team that had him in fantasy football this past season (and I had him on none of my three teams)! He was a stud! ” -bkklaos

“ I've always liked how Topps has recently put both their baseball and football sets in the same design. ” -jlaz10

“ I'm a sucker for alternatingly-colored lettering, circa 1959-60...i guess the white letters in the alternatingly colored circles is the modern extension of that. One of the rare card designs of the last 30 years i actually kinda like. ” -revnorb

“ I know this is only 1 card from the set, but I like the 2008 Chrome baseball set much more ” -Hollywood42
