Random Card of the Day

Thursday, September 5, 2013

Set: 1959 Sicle Air Force (Rate)

Card: #AA-54 Family of Guider Air-to-Air Missiles

“ Wow! Two of mine in a row! I don't think I've seen that happen before. This is a hard set to find information about, I didn't even know it existed until I was able to get some for my own collection. No one seems to know how they were distributed or even if the checklist is complete! There is also a bi-lingual parallel issued in Canada but I have not been able to hunt down a checklist yet. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Just when I thought I seen them all ” -Young Kilo

“ I really really like this card. This is the true purpose of the Trading Card Database. Keeping the obscure and bizarre alive. ” -ray fosse's ghost

“ As if kids needed an incentive to eat a popcicle. Fun set none the less. :-D ” -koloth42

“ Finally, a card showing something capable of more interceptions in 60 minutes than Jake Delhomme. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ These random card of the day cards are getting weird ” -Hollywood42

“ Sometimes I wonder why these cards were ever made. ” -jlaz10

“ What a charming portrait! The boys have grown taller than daddy. ” -DanD

“ I can't say anything kid friendly about this... :( ” -Dixxy

Set: 2012 Topps Star Wars Galaxy 7 (Rate)

Card: #833 Checking Out Threepio

“ really cool artwork.. love cards like this, especially of a film classic.. ” -lyfestory

“ How rude! ” -koloth42

“ The one exception to the hated non-sport cards is Star Wars ” -Hollywood42

“ Great cards for kids. I remember collecting Davey Crockett and Zorro cards way back. It was so much fun to have part of the movie or TV show. Good to get the kids involved. ” -NJDevils

“ Wow, another one of mine! That's a first, the card displayed as Card of the Day and the card to write about for a future Card of the Day is mine as well. Glad one of my Star Wars cards has come up! They are, in my opinion, the best movies ever...the first memory I have of anything, literally, is watching these movies. I have literally seen the original trilogy more than 500 times each...probably more than that, I can't possibly count but I've even watched them more than once in the same day. My Star Wars card collection is also entirely done on the Database, unfortunately I don't have that many of them. It's the only aspect of my collection that is completely posted...with the exception of a few that I can't find checklists for. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Topps still makes Star Wars? ” -jlaz10

“ Ooh, this is one is very cool. This exemplifies the basic element I like most about trading cards: at their core, they are small, affordable pieces of pop art catered exactly to someone's interests. ” -Luckynumber78

“ I don't think they're going to let us in! ” -bplay24

“ YAY it's Not My Fault this time!!!!!!! ” -Dixxy

Set: 1992 BBM (Rate)

Card: #197 Akira Uehara

“ an odd border, but a pretty straight-forward card overall... Was always a big fan of Far Eastern players coming over and trying their hand at big league ball in the US.. ” -lyfestory

“ I just can't find a way to like this card. ” -koloth42

“ At first glance it looks like the Dodgers. After further examination, the uniform components are the same (including red front numbers), and even the logo is the same script as the Dodgers' logo. ” -jlaz10

“ Why is "Did you know?" in English but everything else in Japanese on the back of the card? ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I love BBM's cards just for the "Did you know?" on the back. Did you know I can't read Japanese? Couldn't you put it in French or German just to give me a fighting chance? It appears Akira did something awesome on Aug 19, 1991, but I might be guessing. ” -ray fosse's ghost

Set: 1964 Topps (Rate)

Card: #441 Bob Duliba

“ Solid card design. Not over cluttered with a nice player photo. ” -koloth42

“ The sets you like best are usually from your childhood, especially when there was only one set available. I remember this set well. ” -NJDevils

“ The origial Los Angeles Angels had some of the best uniforms of their day. It would be great if today's Angels would either throwback to these often or bring them back permanently. ” -jlaz10

“ A run of vintage lately...always cool to see vintage cards, regardless of subject! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ That's not a Halo... ” -Dixxy

Set: 1992 Topps (Rate)

Card: #664 Ken Hill

“ He should have won 20 games if there was no strike in 1994. ” -dobbie

“ This is a good solid card. The 1992 Topps set was a great design. I like the photo of the stadium on the card back. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Sometimes I wonder why the pullover-sansabelt era lasted so long. ” -jlaz10

Set: 1997 Circa (Rate)

Card: #11 Jose Rosado

“ It's a sad, sad thing when the back of a card would be a more presentable card than the front. This card can be succinctly described by a word contained in the name of the team it represents -- "Oy." ” -Luckynumber78

“ Yessss!!! Jose Rosado!! Wait, who's Jose Rosado? ” -ray fosse's ghost

“ Some colors just don't go together ” -Young Kilo

“ I loved the basketball version of this set when it was new - they called it Z-Force for some unknown reason - and I even managed to complete the 1997-98 collection the hard way, by buying retail and hobby packs...I generally couldn't afford boxes at the time. As time has gone on, however, my opinion of the sets has actually gone down a bit; as I've come to appreciate actual photo documentation of the sport more than flashy graphics or a cool design...I suppose one could say that I've matured, but that's way more analyzing than I want to do, hah! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ The great Royals home uniform! ” -jlaz10

“ Cards that sorta crossed baseball with the superhero sets from Marvel.. at the time, they were pretty cool.. Now, its just kinda hard to read the player name in foil.. I do like the quotes though... ” -lyfestory

“ Couldn't they have made this card just a tad busier? ” -wamk

“ Whoa! This card is way to busy. I can't just here the designers discussing ideas and it ending with the head designer announcing, "Let's just use them all. More is better." ” -koloth42

“ There's a lot going on in this card, but I'm actually a fan of it ” -Hollywood42

“ This card is a whole lot of bad. Rarely do you see a back that looks better than the front. Nice to see a Royals card even if it is Jose Rosado. ” -jupiterhill

“ Is this a card or a comic book? ” -bplay24

“ Wow. What a horrible design... I got nothing else to say. ” -Dixxy

“ Is Rosado Spanish for Cheerios? This has to be a cereal box. ” -NJDevils

Set: 1991 Stadium Club (Rate)

Card: #266 Eric Green

“ 1991, the Year Topps discovered you can print glossy and full-color on BOTH sides! ” -UNC_Samurai

“ I like how the early Stadium Club releases showed the rookie card on the back...for the basketball set, however, it was severely diminished as Topps had lost the NBA license more than a decade before, so only a handfull of players got their actual RCs posted- some even had the front of the same card printed on the back! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I prefer a bit of a border. Cards just don't look quite right without one. ” -koloth42

“ I don't like the borderless card. Also, the back of the card leaves a lot to be desired. Of course this is from 1991, when card companies gave little thought to the set other than how many they could produce. ” -NJDevils

“ The Steelers black and gold looks good, no matter how it is presented. ” -jlaz10

“ Mean Eric Green? ” -Hollywood42

“ And, this, ladies, is the powersuit -- a new, fresh look for the modern woman of the '90s! ” -Luckynumber78

Set: 1977-78 O-Pee-Chee (Rate)

Card: #172 Dan Maloney

“ I hate these cards that are too far away to see the face clearly. I mean, you'd assume that the makers of these cards know that they're not producing wall art, but they continue to slap these big pictures on the tiny cards. From this distance and this resolution, this could be any white man in a red hockey uniform. ” -Luckynumber78

“ Cool card! Great design, and a good photo, especially for that time frame. I'm not sure if it was any better for other sports, but in basketball this was the start of the modern era of action photos time period. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Great looking set, I really like the font used for the team names. As far as Maloney goes, he was one the most feared fighters in the league during the 1970s. ” -Gunny

“ Design doesn't do much for me. Photo slightly out of focus and seems to be aligned crooked. ” -koloth42

“ The Red Wings uniforms will forever be classics. ” -jlaz10

“ This card is making me snow blind. But it has one of the best backs of any sport. ” -NJDevils

“ Pretty much the same as 1977 Topps/O-Pee-Chee Baseball, with the team name switched to the bottom. A good year for cards. ” -bplay24

“ never had any of these cards, but this looks like a good set. Not into hockey too much, but I might look for a few of these cards. ” -jupiterhill

“ O-Pee-Chee... Canadian for Topps... almost looks cel-shaded... Oh, for the simpler days of collecting where there were only 2-3 manufacturers making 1 big set... ” -lyfestory

Set: 1991 Langenberg Hot Stuff ARTGO Stars (Rate)

Card: #18 Tom Carlson

“ I don't know about this one. It's much more a picture of Tom Carlson's car than of Tom Carlson. ” -LuckyNumber78

“ Excellent, another one of my cards makes Card of the day! This was a regional set based primarily in the Wisconsin area...I received the entire set as a gift from a friend only last month...Langenberg was only around from 1991-1994, and all the sets they issued in 1991 used the exact same design, with just the logo changed. This set is the only time in ARTGO's history that they received cards...I believe the series is still in operation but being nowhere near the upper midwest I may be wrong. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Zoom zoom! I'd drive that to work for sure... once... then it would be confiscated... by the police. ” -Dixxy

“ Quite a few checkered items on this card. ” -jlaz10

Set: 2012 Topps Pro Debut (Rate)

Card: #176 Kyle Waldrop

“ I do enjoy that Topps has applied some of their designs to minor league players. Minor league cards can so often lack in the design and presentation department. ” -koloth42

“ Minor league uniforms are always interesting to see because they're either recolorations of their affiliate's uniforms, or completely new designs. ” -jlaz10

“ I think his batting helmet's about to Wal-drop over his eyes. ” -Luckynumber78
