Set: 2008 Upper Deck Baseball Heroes - Light Blue (Rate)

Card: #139 Steve Carlton

“ I hate the frail typography up in the corners, and the cheesy beveled box on the back. This card looks like it was designed on a MacIntosh IIci in about 1993. I suppose it really doesn't matter if only 49 people were gonna see it. ” -revnorb

“ LEFTY. Probably the second greatest pitcher I ever saw (behind Nolan Ryan). I was there at Vet stadium when he passed Walter Johnson for the all-time K mark. And cool card, too.! ” -vrooomed

“ Another useless, lower #'d parallel for collector's to go after. ” -suomibear8

Set: 1989 Star Baseball City Royals (Rate)

Card: #2 Pete Alborano

“ I'm trying not to make rude comments about the length of the team school bus. ” -revnorb

“ What a horrible shade of purple! ” -CluelessJoe

“ Speaking of the Royals...you owe it to yourself to go to youtube and search Geroge Brett Story...true story! ” -flcardtrader

“ Looks like I'm going to have to buy a pair of those glasses they advertise on TV that cut down the glare. ” -NJdevils

“ Too much purple for my liking! ” -suomibear8

Set: 1993-94 Topps Premier - Gold (Rate)

Card: #345 Micah Aivazoff

“ Huge Red Wings fan over here, and I have never heard of this guy. ” -Howintensive

“ Great design and photography. Well done Topps! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ The design speaks for itself...what's his name and does he play for Premier? Blah! ” -flcardtrader

“ It's a sad world when there's a "Premier" logo on the card front, but no team name or logo. ” -revnorb

Set: 2012 Topps Super Bowl XLVII Wrapper Redemption (Rate)

Card: #SBWR-RL Ray Lewis

“ I still hate the Nike neckroll on this. ” -jlaz10

“ I like it when a wrapper redemption card is actually a new card, not just the base card in a different color. ” -jackal726

“ Interesting card. ” -yokonashiwa

“ I like this card ” -switzr1

“ Sandwiched in between OJ and Hernandez ” -volbox

Set: 2008 Topps Heritage (Rate)

Card: #152 Brian Bannister

“ I just don't like the Heritage cards much. I like how they aren't glossy, but I can't think of one design I really liked. As for Brian.... eh, he was forgettable, never got out of the shadow of his dad. ” -jupiterhill

“ Daddy Floyd Bannister was a great pitcher. Brian however didn't get that lucky. He retired after pitching with the Yomiuri Giants in March of 2011. ” -yokonashiwa

“ The 1959 Topps baseball set is my favorite card set of all time ((in point of fact i'm three Mantles and a Hoot Gibson away from completing it)), but i've never been able to pull the trigger on the Heritage set. The original design is so great that little things like the (R) and (tm) symbols by the team names really cheapen the look...in addition, this particular dude looks like someone you'd see in an old comic book ad for Hypno-Coins. ” -revnorb

“ Ahhh, the '59 set was a beautiful set. ” -CluelessJoe

“ Thank god the Royals dropped black from their unis. They are the Royals, not the Blacks. ” -jlaz10

“ It was a long downward slide for Bannister after this... ” -UNC_Samurai

“ My only gripe about this 1959 design - the lowercase letters for the players' names. Otherwise, nice. And as far as the Topps Heritage sets go, it's a nice alternative for those who liked (or loved) the old designs, but can't afford the old sets. ” -vrooomed

Set: 1990 Topps The Simpsons (Rate)

Card: #27 Look Homer, clean as a whistle!

“ Yes!!! This was taken from a classic Tracy Ullman short- Before the TV show! ” -Howintensive

“ I need to hunt down these cards. (I have the entire sticker insert, which I bought as a set at a card show in the late 1990s). I am quite proud of the fact that I've seen every episode of the Simpsons, most of them many times. Not so much on the newer episodes, some of which I've determined I'll never watch again. But I've seen them all once. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Doh! Who would have thought that a skit used on the Tracey Ullman Show as a transition filler would become the longest running prime time cartoon show? ” -yokonashiwa

“ Ow! My eyes are burning! ” -koloth42

“ Great format. Never have liked the puzzle piece idea, though. ” -SSG Temple

“ Only in the '90s. ” -jlaz10

“ Taste the enduring legacy of the 1955 Bowman baseball set! ” -revnorb

“ Worst licensed set ever! ” -UNC_Samurai

“ D'oh Bart! ” -grim25

Set: 1996 E-Motion XL (Rate)

Card: #201 Derrick May

“ The silver foil thingie looks like something one seals graduation cards with, and I'm not sure why the word "graceful" is floating around the right side of the card. The back looks kinda cool. ” -revnorb

“ Nice design. Player focused different photo on back and not cluttered. ” -koloth42

“ That year he batted .250, had 2 stolen bases, and was caught stealing twice. So why was he in a set called "Motion"? ” -UNC_Samurai

“ Odd name "Grace Ful". ” -NJdevils

“ The Astros never should have left the navy and orange. ” -jlaz10

Set: 1999-00 Upper Deck MVP - Draw Your Own Trading Card (Rate)

Card: #W19 Patrick Roy

“ Cool cards. To be a kid and have your picture chosen to be distributed on a sports card is really awesome! ” -carthage44

“ I thought I wanted a 1909 Honus Wagner card but now I want this instead. ” -revnorb

“ There were actually some pretty good "portraits" in this set & Roy certainly was a star. ” -uncaian

“ Submitted by: Don Cherry's tailor's six-year-old son. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ Better than a lot of what I have seen from Upper Deck. ” -NJdevils

“ People bought these? ” -SSG Temple

“ Disturbing ” -haogaole

“ Oddly, without reading who it was, I knew it was Patrick Roy. ” -suomibear8

“ Eh? I'm speechless on this one. ” -koloth42

“ I wouldn't be surprised o see a card like this in one of those "retro" sets ” -jackal726

“ Nice drawing of the Avs logo. ” -jlaz10

Set: 2002 Decipher Lord of the Rings CCG: The Two Towers (Rate)

Card: #4C291 Sword of Rohan

“ ... My card focus is star wars and hockey. let me be clear! Although I do know of a neat link where two nerds walked from the real life Hobbiton to the real life Mordor... Great five videos! ” -Dixxy

“ HAHA, sorry I have to laugh at these. ” -carthage44

“ This might be the one set of CCG games I don't have a card from. After awhile, I stopped buying CCGs because I never got any good at deck building therefore I was not very good at playing them. Also, it helps to have people to play against as well. ” -yokonashiwa

“ Always a good idea to carry your trust sword when going into battle. ” -koloth42

“ This must be that Man Card I've heard so much about. ” -DanD

“ A sword! ” -jlaz10

Set: 2012-13 Panini Absolute (Rate)

Card: #99 Rajon Rondo

“ Two of my basketball cards in a week's time, cool! This set looks a LOT better in person, it's mirror foil which as any of you who have tried to scan it know, scans very poorly. The gold trim on the Celtics jersey identifies it as an alternate (normally what is gold on this card is white). The back scan is a little washed out, I should have done a better job on it. Every single one of the cards I posted, with the exception of the Nate Thurmond card, to this set came from retail packs from my local Target. The Thurmond card came as a No Purchase Necessary win from Panini. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Rondo was drafted out of Kentucky in the 1st round (21st overall) by the Phoenix Suns during the 2006 NBA Draft. He was traded on draft day to the Boston Celtics where he still currently plays. Career Stats: 11.1 PPG, 4.6 RPG and 7.0 APG. He is a 4x All-Star, 4x All-Defensive Team (2x first-team and 2x second-team), 2x NBA Assists Leader, 1x NBA Steals Leader and a NBA Champion in 2008. ” -carthage44

“ That gold trim is abhorrent to me. The back is cool looking, but way to take a huge step backwards with just the Year/Life statistics! ” -revnorb

“ I went to TD Garden for the first time in March. Saw Rondo play, among others. My first NBA game away from Indianapolis. ” -switzr1
