“ I liked this design. Not sure how I got a few of these Spanish edition cards, but my favorite was Andujar Cedeno. ” -jupiterhill

“ Nice clear name. I like it when it's easy to tell who is featured. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Gardener short- Shortstop. Go spanish ” -Hollywood42

Set: 1979 Topps Alien (Rate)

Card: #50 Egg Hatchery

“ I wonder how many kids who weren't allowed to see this movie pieced together this set in order to get the full story. ” -DanD

“ Never had the cards, but was/am a huge fan of the movies! ” -bplay24

“ One of the last movies I saw in downtown Pittsburgh. Great movie, great card! ” -Gunny

“ Never understood the draw of this movie...doesn't interest me at all, but I am glad to see another non-sports card chosen as Card of the Day. It seems that non-sports has had a more rapid increase in posting than any sports lately (not counting the always steady baseball!) ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Another old movie card. I didn't have this set but I had/have many from other late 70's early 80's movies. ” -koloth42

“ Really? REALLY? ” -eyoung11

Set: 1986 Fleer (Rate)

Card: #314 Denny Walling

“ Another classic design from Fleer. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Another Fleer set from the 1980s I used to love to get signed, and the Astros were, without a doubt, the nicest team from which to get autographs- including Nolan Ryan. ” -PlayerPCCollector

“ I loved those uniforms. Can't believe they got rid of them ” -eyoung11

“ Ahhhh... The Astros jersey after the tequila sunrise ones. I miss both of them.. ” -Mike67

Set: 1991 ProCards (Rate)

Card: #1943 Curt Ford

“ Hey, I don't remember when moving the mouse over the card front seeing the back before! Cool! I like this design, the notepad theme is unique. And I've been to that ballpark! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Never saw this card before. Don't want to see it again. The back is okay. ” -NJDevils

“ The old "pop-up" collars of the 80s are not my favorite uniform aspect. ” -jlaz10

Set: 1995 Stadium Club (Rate)

Card: #57 Myron Guyton

“ Simple design from a simpler time. Design would have been better with a bit of a border. ” -koloth42

“ Nothing says mid-1990s like Stadium Club designs...although this is not my favorite card design, I still consider that time period to be the best in cards and overall. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ 1995 was a great year for cards, after the plethora of throwbacks from the 75th anniversary. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ Pat Patriot was one of the best logos in the NFL of his time. ” -jlaz10

Set: 1981 Fleer (Rate)

Card: #605 Bill Stein

“ He lookslike hes not sure where to stand to play the position. Or else he might be trying to move out of the way of a hit. ” -biggiofn7

“ The hobby has never given Fleer its proper due for breaking Topps' monopoly on baseball cards. It was the lawsuit Fleer had filed that opened the door for the explosion that started the baseball card boom of the 80s and early 90s. The 1981 Fleer set was the first to come out in January of 1981, and the errors of the first printing run caused hysteria among hobbyists. At the first few card shows of the year, dealers were selling out of cases of product and running out to local candy wholesalers to stock up on more. Wax packs included a powdery piece of gum that, unfortunately, was no better than the kind that Topps always used. ” -PlayerPCCollector

“ This looks more like a 70s design than an 80s design, I wonder how long it was on the drawing board? I like it though...wish that it was used in one of my sports that I collect. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Despite being years ahead of its time, 'Win Bill Stein's Money' failed to draw much of an audience after the first contestant walked away with the grand prize of $48.37. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ This set was the beginning of the end of my childhood collecting. Chasing all the errors in this and the Donruss set. I thought back then there were too many sets to collect. Look at the industry now! ” -CluelessJoe

“ Funny when you see these older cards, how lousy the condition of the field is in the backgrounds.. ” -wamk

“ Ooo back to my youth. When I was collecting cards I really didn't care for Fleer. They seemed borning and often had printing flaws that made the cards look blurry. ” -koloth42

“ The original Mariners unis were great! It would be great if the Mariners threw back to them soon. ” -jlaz10

Set: 1988 Leaf/Donruss (Rate)

Card: #254 George Bell

“ Somewhere, Bret Saberhagen's card is crying. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ To bad the Leaf versions were identical to the Donruss versions. ” -koloth42

“ Although I'm not a fan of pullovers, the Blue Jays made it work. ” -jlaz10

“ You can ring George Bellllllll, ring George Bell, (ring George Bell)...hated this card design, one of my least favorites, is that the dugout railing? ” -SaveDaKid

“ Leaf? Je ne pas parle francais. ” -volbox

“ Hey, Leaf: Get your own design! Oh well... At least this one has the Jay's colours in it. ” -DanD
