Set: 2007 Topps (Rate)

Card: #236 Boston Red Sox

“ I never understood the appeal of team cards, and considering the trouble Topps has to go through to create them without any non-contracted personnel being depicted, I would say they're not worth it. ” -PlayerPCCollector

“ I am NOT a fan of dark color borders at all! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ What's with the 2 floating portraits in the background? ” -Hollywood42

“ It's really cool how they changed the scoreboard to say Red Sox 2006. However, this was in the 2007 set. ” -jlaz10

“ i like the old school team pics better, plus don't like the look of this card. ” -tonym

Set: 1990 ProCards (Rate)

Card: #2248 Noel Velez

“ That Reds logo really does go with that uniform ” -Young Kilo

“ Sure have been a lot of ProCards as Card of the Day lately...although I suppose with over 2000 to choose from that's pretty good odds for them! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Wow this set has over 2400 cards in it, I did not know sets that big existed. I thought the O-Pee-Chee and Upper Deck sets with 600-900 were a lot. Check out the backs of these cards they have ads on them, thought that was interesting as well. ” -PDIZZLE

“ Simple. Elegant. Why couldn't hockey do something like this?!? ” -Dixxy

“ Interesting color scheme (navy and teal) for a Reds (red and white/black) affiliate. ” -jlaz10

Set: 2012 Topps - Prolific Playmakers (Rate)

Card: #PP-CB Cedric Benson

“ Because when you say prolific, I think of Cedric Benson ” -Hollywood42

“ I personally like this design for an insert set. Has the look of a regular set. Benson's card is particularly nice with the nice action pose. Two thumbs up since I don't have 3 thumbs. :-D ” -koloth42

“ It angers me how valuable card space is wasted for design instead of picture. ” -jlaz10

“ I like the overall design on this one. I suspect the bottom colors change with each team, which I view as a plus. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ It looks like I'm driving and I'm about to run him over... ” -Dixxy

Set: 2008 Upper Deck X (Rate)

Card: #3 Brandon Webb

“ whats with all the Xs ” -Colts12

“ Not a very good seller for UD. I did build the 09 X set though ” -Hollywood42

“ Just looks odd with the background pasted in. Sort of looks like Brandon is sitting on the lower part of the X. No thanks. ” -koloth42

“ Upper Deck should have Xed out this whole set. Garbage. ” -NJDevils

Set: 1993-94 Upper Deck (Rate)

Card: #94 Stu Barnes

“ I think Upper Deck made a beautiful set for 1993-94. This card features one of my favorite players Stu Barnes. The write up on the back of the card highlights his Junior career with Tri-City Americans of which he and former NHL Goaltender Olaf Kolzig are now the owners. Oh and that Jets uniform on this card was outstanding. ” -Gunny

“ Hard worker,one of the most underrated players.always out there making plays happen.I liked this UD set clean & simple . ” -uncaian

“ Nothing to complain about here. Large, clear image, not much "noise" coming from logo and player name. Nice. ” -wamk

“ The old Jets scheme of navy and red looks a lot better than the new Jets, who use navy, royal blue, and columbia blue. ” -jlaz10

“ The card has a clean look , and a simple design. I like it. ” -deporcoruña

“ STU!!! Wait, I don't know him... ” -Hollywood42

“ Jets are back *back.* Back again *gain* The 'peg is back *back* tell a friend *friend* ” -Dixxy

Set: 2011 Topps Tribute - Dual Relics (Rate)

Card: #TDR-AK Al Kaline

“ Interesting card design, but the scan is hurt by the serial number being digitally removed for some unknown reason. Also, it appears the two pieces of wood are from the same source, so I'm wondering why they have two holes for them instead of one big one. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I love the memorabilia cards, it's nice to own a piece of sports history no matter how small. ” -PDIZZLE

“ It's easy to forget that the Tigers wore numbers on their sleeves long before the Phillies made it normal. ” -jlaz10

“ LOVE these relic cards, giving the fan an shot to touch something once used by their heroes. Not overly fond of the design on this particular card, however. Maybe something else besides an expanse of white background behind the pieces of his bat.. ” -wamk

“ Not sure if I like the foil signature, but other than that it's a nice looking card ” -Hollywood42

Set: 1994 SP (Rate)

Card: #103 Chris Bosio

“ Is this payback for the Chris Bosio reference last month? ” -UNC_Samurai

“ Even though the Mariners have used the same logos and uniforms since 1993, it still is a good look. ” -jlaz10

“ ain't nuttin like holding in a wad of chew before throwing some heat! ” -tonym

“ Ehhh ” -Hollywood42

“ One of those guys that it seemed like I got in every pack, never really knew who he was, never actually saw him perform, but whenever I see his cards, he's always got chipmunk cheeks...smuggling pine tar eh? ” -SaveDaKid

“ Never knew Nintendo's Mario pitched for the Mariners ” -Young Kilo

Set: 1994 Topps (Rate)

Card: #530 Brett Favre

“ It looks like gold foil for his name...did all the football cards get foil treatment or is this a gold paralell posted in the wrong place? The design theme they used that year was not a particular favorite of mine, it was also the first time all Topps cards had a UV coating, at least in basketball. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ His face looks like Cornelius from Planet Of the Apes. ” -deporcoruña

“ Simple, elegant design. Large image, nice action shot. My only gripe is that the gold foil makes the name a little hard to see. ” -wamk

“ The packers white uniforms have always seemed too gold-heavy to me (gold helmet, gold pants). I think they should at least get green pants for the road. ” -jlaz10

“ Liked him better in a Vikings jersey. Still one of the all-time greats ” -Hollywood42

“ It's a football shape. How creative. I think it'd be awesome if topps screwed up and put a puck shape on this card instead. Or a golf ball... Also, who honestly can read hand writing nowadays anyways!? ” -Dixxy
