Set: 2010-11 Upper Deck (Rate)

Card: #137 Loui Eriksson

“ This is a nice looking set .Here,s hoping he does well with Boston. ” -uncaian

“ Nice action shot. My first reaction was that Eriksson was either trying to see how far he could bend his stick or was stringing a long bow. Random I know but that is how the image hit me. ” -koloth42

“ Great design. UD really got better as time went on, with better photos and better card designs (for the most part) ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I love the way the photography caught the stick bending on his shot. ” -duaned99

“ Good, clean design and a nice action shot.. Should hockey cards be anything else? ” -lyfestory

“ Love the way it shows the torque on the stick in this photo. Plus, Loui is one of the bright spots for the Stars. Nice use of the horizontal format. ” -vrooomed

“ I sure hope he isn't shooting the puck. The way his body and arms are positioned he is gonna break something. ” -biggiofn7

“ The Stars new uniforms are a lot better than these, their old ones, but still are missing gold. ” -jlaz10

“ Boooorrrring. Nice photo, but these late UD designs leave much to be desired and feel cheap. ” -marcbrubaker

“ This is a REALLY nice design. The clean artistry of the photograph jells nicely with the classy lettering and small headshot. I don't collect much hockey, but I may need to find a pack or two of this. ” -Luckynumber78

“ Long John Silvers has the best chicken around! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Cards from fast food. Haven't seen these type sets much recently. ” -koloth42

“ Underrated Houston ballplayer.. card colors work well with the team, but otherwise pretty bland.. ” -lyfestory

“ Whoa! Gonna need this one to fill my Astros oddballs. Underwhelming front, but a nice back - reminds me of 94 Fleer. I had no idea this set existed. Great player, too. ” -marcbrubaker

“ Glenn "Big Baby" Davis!!! ” -eyoung11

Set: 1986 TCMA All-Time Baltimore Orioles (Rate)

Card: #3 Jim Palmer

“ Mr. Palmer is definitely an All-Time Oriole Great.. not a great picture but a nice card nonetheless.. ” -lyfestory

“ Great design. Simple but works. I even like the plain text back. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I had a bunch of these as a kid. I thought they were legit old-time cards! ” -suomibear8

“ There's too much going on in this card design, and it looks like someone had aimed a leaf-blower up his shirt. Just awkward. ” -Luckynumber78

“ The MLB logo on the sleeve means this is a picture from the O's pennant-winning season of 1969. ” -jlaz10

Set: 1979 Indianapolis Indians Team Issue (Rate)

Card: #28 Mario Soto

“ This is a snappy uniform. I have a few cards from the Indianapolis 2005 Team Set, and they don't look this sharp. ” -Luckynumber78

“ Almost didn't realize Minor league cards went that far back in time... Always good to see something i've never seen before.. ” -lyfestory

“ This local team issue has a better design and photography than many national level releases. Especially from that time frame. Good job! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I enjoy seeing these old minor league sets. Thanks to gb24 and rayfosse's ghost, among others, for doing such a good job posting these sets. ” -PlayerPCCollector

“ Another team issue Indianapolis Indians card Soto had a 3 year stint with the Tribe before his his successful career as a MLB pitcher. ” -koloth42

Set: 1993 Saskatchewan Roughriders (Rate)

Card: #18 Mike Saunders

“ Yikes. Too much colour, not enough focus. ” -Luckynumber78

“ I don't know this set at all. Is this a Canadian football card? ” -yokonashiwa

“ Well, it's a different card for sure and nicely done at that. ” -NJDevils

“ Ah, the good ol' days in the CFL before Reebok took over. ” -jlaz10

“ CFL card? Nice, clean design, but pretty indicative of the early to mid 90s sets... ” -lyfestory

“ He looks like a recycled Blair Thomas. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ Good timing! My Argos just beat the Roughriders last night. ” -DanD

“ Nice a CFL card. Nice action pick on this one. I'm glad to see these getting some card of the day love. ” -koloth42

Set: 2009 Topps - Ticket to ToppsTown (Rate)

Card: #TTT7 Hanley Ramirez

“ Toppstown needs to end ” -Hollywood42

“ Never cared for having to enter codes online, but at least this card has a player on it unlike a lot of the Topps 'online' cards.. Background could be better.. ” -lyfestory

“ Good old Topps Town. Donruss Town burned down and Upper Deck Town was flooded but we still have the safety of Topps Town. The zombies will never find us or Hanley's Little League trophies there. ” -ray fosse's ghost

“ This card could have been in greyscale without hardly anyone noticing the difference. ” -Luckynumber78

“ Pinstripes didn't work with the Marlins, but this uniform is still 500% better than their current one. ” -jlaz10

“ never really like the Topstown cards..look more like Halloween card at the bottom ” -tonym

Set: 2010 Upper Deck - Portraits (Rate)

Card: #SE-14 Kosuke Fukudome

“ Classic looking but unnecessary. So many trees died to make this set. So many trees. ” -ray fosse's ghost

“ Don't see many cards done in a sepia tone. For a good reason I might add. I like when they do modern subjects on vintage designs, but modern designs made to look vintage generally don't work well. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Nice use of the Polaroid design. ” -vrooomed

“ Not sure why companies try to make new cards look old. ” -koloth42

“ Way too much border, but cool sepia tones.. the back is useless.. i see some parallels doing a sepia-tone them.. its kinda cool, for now.. ” -lyfestory

“ The way the picture is colored makes it look like the true-blue Cubs helmet is red. ” -jlaz10

Set: 2012 Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom - Booster (Rate)

Card: #KC Key Card

“ I rather collect bottlecaps again. ” -volbox

“ Now that's a key card ” -Young Kilo

“ Is this card the "key" to completing the set? Sorry, couldn't resist the easy pun! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I don't understand...do I tap this for mana? ” -UNC_Samurai

“ Seriously ?!?!?!?! ” -uncaian

“ Not familiar with this set. I'm guessing a game card. Ok, now that that is out of the way can we have the next card please? ” -koloth42

“ Disney? What is this card? ” -CluelessJoe

“ A key card? how ironic... ” -lyfestory

“ Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom may turn out to be one of the few base sets of our times to appreciate in value over the next few decades. Unfortunately, it's somewhat hard to get. ” -Luckynumber78

“ Well now... that's different. What's it supposed to be? ” -Dixxy

“ All I can say is WHAT? Some of the things that are given cards in a set are very interesting. The key design is pretty cool, but still this card will only have value if part of the whole set. ” -yokonashiwa

“ Why? ” -Hollywood42

“ I see its a key... ” -jlaz10

Set: 1983 Topps (Rate)

Card: #450 Ted Simmons

“ Best Topps design of the 1980's. ” -PlayerPCCollector

“ First set I ever collected, and still looks good. ” -volbox

“ A really good player. 1983 was the year I got back into the hobby, so I kind of like this set but I have to admit, this card is pretty boring, bad photos. ” -NJDevils

“ Very underrated player here on a classic Topps design set.. So glad photography has gotten better though... ” -lyfestory

“ I like this set. My uncle had uncut sheets of this set on his wall when I was a kid. When he moved, he gave them to me. Then I realized he actually glued cards to cardboard and they weren't uncut sheets. ” -jupiterhill

“ For some reason, the Brewers powder blues have always seemed much more blue than others. ” -jlaz10

Set: 2011 Bowman - International (Rate)

Card: #3 Edwin Jackson

“ What makes this International? Is the player from another country or was the card issued in another country? I do like the design, the Bowman designs are always classy. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ B as in Bowman. B as in Boring. B as in Blah. ” -NJDevils

“ Black-bordered cards are always tough to keep in Mint condition, more so when they have a lot of foil.. Love Bowman cards, not so much this set or parallel.. ” -lyfestory

“ When the White Sox switched to black-only piping on their road pants for this season, it marked the end of asymmetrical pant striping in the MLB. ” -jlaz10

“ I love that sleeve patch! ” -duaned99
