Set: 1979 Lipton Tea New England Tea Men (Rate)

Card: #6 Peter Simpson

“ The best thing about this card is the team (?) logo on the back...I am a big fan of sailing ships... ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Ha! ” -Young Kilo

“ Is this card set to commemorate each person's signature pitcher of tea? I like mine without lemon and semi sweet. ” -addysdaddy

“ Now this is a card I will never likely own and if not for this site, likely would have never seen! But I love it! Cheers to Lipton for producing and Gunny for posting! ” -bkklaos

“ Soccer player? Oh wait just looked at the back. ” -uncaian

“ UMBRO!!! Soccer, America's sport of the future since 1972!!! ” -SaveDaKid

Set: 1989 Upper Deck (Rate)

Card: #361 Keith Moreland

“ I like this design. First UD set if I remember correctly. Would still be a few years before they came into the NBA, and a few more years beyond that that I would discover the NBA's existence. I like the earlier UD sets better, simply because they are large sets. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I really disliked the layout of UD's card backs. They were one of the first companies to provide limited stats on the back, which as a kid I found incredibly annoying. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ Hey, UD, pictures on the front and stats on the back, please. Do not need an excess of photos. Again, dont like turning the card to read the stats. ” -NJdevils

“ Nice brown and orange Padres. ” -jlaz10

“ What a brown card. ” -marcbrubaker

“ Nice set with decent photo quality. Moreland was a blast to watch at Wrigley. ” -SYTopps

Set: 1987 Topps Mini Leaders (Rate)

Card: #28 Von Hayes

“ I really like this design. The whole concept of documenting the previous season's statistical leaders is always something I appreciate in cards. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Didn't need such a big border on such a small card. Good set for little kids. Think back to when you were seven and your hands were too small to hold more than just a few cards, if that. Probably why my oldest cards have creases. ” -NJdevils

“ He needs to open up his stance a little bit. ” -wamk

“ Such a wee little card. Get inside my collection!!! ” -addysdaddy

“ I hated off-size cards, mini or big. I tried to avoid collecting anything that didn't fit or was way too loose in a standard 9-pocket page. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ The Phillies powder blues were some of the best road unis ever. The light blue went so well with their dark red. ” -jlaz10

“ On X-mas 1988, I got a Topps box that had a binder, ten 9-pocket pages -which didn't age well-, a bunch of 1988 Topps (c. 100), along with two things I had never seen: a price guide and a few packs of 87 Minis. ” -volbox

Set: 1985 Mother's Cookies San Diego Padres (Rate)

Card: #15 Craig Lefferts

“ Mother's produced a nice little set. I was lucky enough to get some Astros sets from a friend in Houston. The photo quality doesn't show on this scan. ” -NJdevils

“ He was the one who FINALLY hit Pascual Perez in the epic Padres-Braves brawl in '84. ” -volbox

“ I always liked borderless cards. ” -suomibear8

Set: 1997 Topps (Rate)

Card: #319 Terry Pendleton

“ looks like an "E5" on the way ” -SSG Temple

“ It's a shame he shared the same position as Chipper, because Terry often gets overlooked when discussing that great Braves run. Dude was money in that great World Series against Minnesota in 1991. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ I like the design...simple yet effective. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Another no-show by the Topps creative staff. ” -NJdevils

“ Interesting how his name looks radially arched. The Braves had vertically arched nameplates up until 2005. ” -jlaz10

“ TP! We used to have drinking games centered around TBS catching him adjusting his cup. Those were the days... ” -jackal726

Set: 1969 Fud's Photography Montreal Expos (Rate)

Card: #7 Dan McGinn

“ Damn. I just don't even know what to say ” -Young Kilo

“ "compliments" as if they are doing you a favor. ” -SSG Temple

“ I'm guessing this didn't help Fud's Photography as much as Fud had hoped. ” -jackal726

“ I know it's from the 60s, but this is a rather uninspiring card. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ "Fud's Photography"? Did the dog from that Far Side cartoon open a new business? ” -UNC_Samurai

“ "Shhhh, be vewy, vewy quiet. I'm photographing baseball pwayers. Now where's that wascally pwayer I need to get. Oh there he is." ” -vrooomed

“ Cool...nice to see stuff that you can't find in a Beckett Price Guide...I like it! ” -bkklaos

“ Elmer Fud went on to be a photographer after he gave up hunting for Bugs? Who knew ” -addysdaddy

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
