Random Card of the Day

Saturday, October 19, 2013

Set: 1995-96 Flair (Rate)

Card: #49 Clyde Drexler

“ A great player, and a great card set, a combination that can't be beat! At the time, Flair was the thickest card set released, with the 1994-95 and 1995-96 sets sharing the same extra thick cardboard, it would get progressivly thinner over time until it was regular card thickness. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Why the heck did they change their uniforms the following season? ” -DanD

“ The Rockets should throw back to these. ” -jlaz10

“ Flair had some nice cards in various sports. Just didnt catch on for some reason. My usual complaint on the back of card, how about numbers with some contrast. Make the numbers visible. ” -NJDevils

“ My head is spinning ” -Hollywood42

Set: 1996-97 Leaf Limited (Rate)

Card: #19 Todd Bertuzzi

“ Hockey collectors must be rejoicing, they are getting a lot of Card of the Days lately. This one surely looks better in person, mirror foil never scans well, although this is a good one as far as mirrors go. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ These cards always had surface issues. ” -suomibear8

“ I found this set all flash, no substance.Bertuzzi,unfortunately, will be more remembered for one REALLY BAD incident,instead of his pretty great career. ” -uncaian

“ Worst. Hockey. Uniform. EVER. ” -jlaz10

“ I can see why they limited it. Blah! ” -NJDevils

“ These all-foil cards were highly sensitive to scratching. The scan doesn't show this card very well - the edges were bright at the top, and the team logo is holographic. This is a VERY nice set. ” -vrooomed

Set: 2004 Donruss Classics (Rate)

Card: #136 Miguel Tejada

“ Hmmm.. A's uniform, Orioles logo on the bottom.. Yeah, that's not confusing.. ” -Mike67

“ Now you know how he became a "Classic" ” -volbox

“ too much border.. Never really could figure out which team to sort cards like this into, O's or A's... ” -lyfestory

“ I'm still not really a fan of the A's green alternate. It looks good on the road but is too dark for home. ” -jlaz10

“ The design is sharp, but the picture is awkward and clunky. The bright colours look strange and garish on the subtle background, plus there is no such thing as a traded player whose card looks good with one uniform and another team logo. ” -Luckynumber78

Set: 1994-95 O-Pee-Chee Premier (Rate)

Card: #282 Guy Carbonneau

“ Front design is great. Black border on the back, ugh! All in all, this is nice looking card. ” -vrooomed

“ This could be the most boring hockey card I've seen. No action, not a good portrait, blah. ” -marcbrubaker

“ Another great design on a mid 90s Hockey card. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ One of my all time favourite Canadiens.I like this set better than previous years,it's brighter & better looking. ” -uncaian

“ The front design is slick and minimal. It does everything right, and, while unoriginal, is a nice, solid design. The back is a mid-90s mess. ” -Luckynumber78

“ is it me or is the back of the card rough on the eyes? ” -NJDevils

“ I didn't really like these Blues uniforms because the crest has a small "St. Louis" in the top. Seems a little unnecessary. ” -jlaz10

“ I am sorry for the Star Trek cards!!! OK? SORRY!!! At least it's not Pokemon or Yu-Gi-Oh! cards... At least be thankful for that. (No, I will NOT add those. Someone else can do that.) Oh, HEEEeeeyyy... A Hockey Card!! I didn't know he played for the Blues... Always thought he stuck with Montreal. ” -Dixxy

Set: 1992 All World CFL (Rate)

Card: #152 Bruce Covernton

“ I like the curtain design at the top. Not something you see every day. All World seems to have had their hand in a lot more than I thought, I only knew them from two Indy Car sets until I joined the Database. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ This is an overwhelmingly Canadian picture. It doesn't do a very good job of conveying what sport this is. In fact, I had to delete a comment about hockey because some Googling told me this was a football card. Okay then. Okay, Canada. ” -Luckynumber78

“ Anyone else notice that a CFL card was printed in the USA? Nice design. ” -vrooomed

“ This guy can't be the player, can it? He looks older than me and I'm a geezer. Maybe it's the team owner? The team owner's grandfather? ” -NJDevils

“ Seem like some good '90s unis. ” -jlaz10

“ He looks like a substitute teacher. ” -DanD

Set: 2000 Topps (Rate)

Card: #472 Active Strikeout Leaders - Roger Clemens

“ The concept on this card is a good one...the subject not so much. I remember seeing him on the local news all the time when he was an active player (and even now when he's not due to the controversies he's been in) and he does not come off as a very nice person. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ like him or not, he still was a great pitcher.. I still can't figure out how PEDs would help a pitcher in any way.. regardless, i would have to agree with the nature of the card.. ” -lyfestory

“ Clemens is certainly one of the 20th century's best. The 20th century's random years sprinkled about behind him are less than inspired, though. ” -Luckynumber78

“ Steroids. ” -jlaz10

Set: 1987 Topps (Rate)

Card: #124 Ray Fontenot

“ I wonder if he ever got that degree? ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Hmmm.. Wonder if Mr Fontenot ever completed the few hours he needed for that degree in business admin.. ” -ThemightyOx

“ Airbrush often? ” -jlaz10

“ A nice card. I don't mind Topps reusing the wood border. Seems like baseball. Back of the card is pretty good though I would advise Topps to dump the vat of purple ink. ” -NJDevils

“ I love the 87 Topps set. ” -Mike67

“ Air-brush city! ” -vrooomed

Set: 1992 Stadium Club Dome (Rate)

Card: #151 Pokey Reese

“ i remember all those late 80s and early 90s draft picks mostly amounting to nothing.. except for the Big Hurt anyway.. always loved Stadium Clubs' photography, but this one is not so good.. and the backs are just too confusing.. ” -lyfestory

“ What's this, a wanted poster? Topps should be able to do better but didnt. Never liked Stadium Club. The back is horrible too. Let the kid smile. ” -NJDevils

“ Is this a baseball card, or a mug shot? ” -wamk

“ Regular old minor league uniform. ” -jlaz10

“ Pokey! Man, what a great high school uniform. This guy drove me crazy though. Seemed like he always ripped the Astros. ” -marcbrubaker

Set: 1991-92 Pro Set French (Rate)

Card: #87 Brad Shaw

“ This card came up just a few hours too late, as I missed one of these on Card-ology earlier today! I like the whale tail on the jersey. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ So many hockey cards! At least it's in French so I have an excuse for not knowing what's going on here. ” -ray fosse's ghost

“ Another hockey card. Descent image of Shaw but the card is rather plain beyond that. ” -koloth42

“ I like this set,no borders,nice backs and really, really affordable.A great set for kids to collect.It was pretty much error free, a big improvement from the year before.Shaw was a great defenseman,nothing flashy, but always reliable. ” -uncaian

“ A border would have been a nice addition to this card. ” -NJDevils

“ Oh how I miss the Hartford Whalers. ” -jupiterhill

“ Silliness: How many people called him Terry? On another note, ProSet was so terrible, it's not even worth the paper it's printed on. Sheeting a set costs more for the pages than the cards. Ouch! ” -vrooomed

“ Cue the Brass Bonanza! I miss the Whalers. ” -Gunny

“ I once bought a box of these. My French is still bad. ” -DanD

“ Best. Logo. Ever. ” -jlaz10

Set: 2012-13 Upper Deck (Rate)

Card: #108 Bryce Salvador

“ Another great new design from UD. I would be trying to complete this set if I collected Hockey. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Upper Deck will always be my favorite sports card brand, always had great photography and solid card designs.. ” -lyfestory

“ I thought Upper Deck did a very nice job with this set. Bryce looks good on this card, good skating shot compliments the design elements at the bottom. Bryce is also the 10th Captain in New Jersey Devils history. ” -Gunny

“ I like this set nice and clean presentation. ” -uncaian

“ Three cups in 20 years. Oh yeah, nice card too. ” -NJDevils

“ The Devils home uniforms work perfectly with their color scheme. ” -jlaz10

“ Nice to see hockey on here. Upper Deck's design is pretty much the same as it was 15 years ago. ” -vrooomed
