Random Card of the Day

Sunday, September 29, 2013

Set: 1992 Pro Set (Rate)

Card: #141 Clay Matthews

“ This was a terrible set, even the stock was flimsy. ” -NJDevils

“ Not much to gripe about here. Nice large image, text and logo aren't too distracting. Too bad it's not more of an action shot. ” -wamk

“ I like this Clay Matthews better. From what I can see, he's not egotistical, doesn't call out that he's targeting players before games, and most importantly, doesn't look like a #&%$ that desperately needs a haircut. ” -Hollywood42

“ Clay without the girly hair.. hehe... Oh Pro Set, how we haven't missed thee.. ” -lyfestory

“ Pro Set's swan song. The 1993 card quality went way downhill, and by the spring of 1994 they were bankrupt. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ Luckily the Browns uniforms stayed the same in the switches over to Reebok and then Nike. ” -jlaz10

“ Great player. Should be in the HOF ” -titanup74

“ I like this card. It is simple and doesn't try to be flashy. I always liked Clay Sr. I thought he was very underrated. ” -jupiterhill

Set: 1990 Donruss (Rate)

Card: #50 Jeff Treadway

“ Oh, those colorful 1990s sets.. i bought a ton of those things, back when cards were seemingly a dime a dozen... those cards still are, actually.. An error-riddled set, that red one was... ” -lyfestory

“ This is the year that I began tossing out worthless overproduced cards. Despite that, Treadway was a very reliable player. Again the backs of Donruss are terrible. ” -NJDevils

“ I remember these. Very much towards the end of my youth collecting days. ” -koloth42

“ You can tell by the way his name is written, and how it's placed, right when this is from. Personally I feel that the peak of card designs started in 1991, and lasted through 1997, but that's my opinion only. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ The Braves uniforms used to have vertical names on the back, but they have reverted to the common radial arch. ” -jlaz10

Set: 2002 Grandstand Vermont Expos (Rate)

Card: #4 Larry Broadway

“ Larry Broadway here is too cool for school. And baseball. And uniform logo colours that don't sear the eyes. ” -Luckynumber78

“ Once again, a minor league/promo issue has a better design than many mainstream issues. I remember seeing TV ads for them while in Lake George NY, my favorite place in the world. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ There's a made-for-TV pose, but obviously not bound for the MLB.. pretty basic & clean design, backs are not so great.. ” -lyfestory

“ They say the neon lights are bright.... ” -PlayerPCCollector

“ The last team to have been called the Expos ” -eyoung11

“ Nice design. The ad is a *little* intrusive, but not ridiculous. Backs are well-done. For a low-level minor league card set, this is *very* nice. ” -vrooomed

“ This is not real. This can't be real. Broadway refers to the sparkly Expos lettering on his chest, right? ” -marcbrubaker

“ Needs a border but not bad for a Minor League card. ” -koloth42

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

Set: 1990 Starline Long John Silver (Rate)

Card: #15 Glenn Davis

“ 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

“ Indianapolis? Rachel Phelps got desperate. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ Classic minor league card. Love the framing banners. ” -marcbrubaker

“ Look at all of those Fan ” -eyoung11

“ Classic '70s minor league uniform. ” -jlaz10

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
