Random Card of the Day

Set: 2010 Score (Rate)

Card: #70 Josh Cribbs

“ Interesting design. Nice picture and clean. Like the fact that unlike some other cards, you know who the player being featured is because he is the only one on the card. I think this might be the first time I have ever seen a player's position as RS (Right Safety). Nice back. ” -yokonashiwa

“ Cribbs was undrafted in 2005 out of Kent State. He signed as an undrafted free agent with the Cleveland Browns. He played with the Browns from 2005-2012, spent preseason of 2013 with the Raiders but was cut before the season started but signed with the Jets in October of 2013. Career: 109 receptions, 1,167 yards, 12,755 return yards and 20 total touchdowns. He is a 3x Pro Bowler, 2x All-Pro, and holds 3 NFL records for most career kickoff returns for TDs (8, tied w/Leon Washington), two kickoff return TDs of 100 yards or more in a single game (tied w/Ted Ginn Jr.) and most kickoff return TDs in a single game (2, tied w/9 others). ” -carthage44

“ One word for this card design...Yuck ” -addysdaddy

“ I like the effort, but there just seems like a lot of wasted space here. Also, what the heck is RS, Return Specialist? That's a position now? I can't wait to see the next "3rd Down Back in Passing Situations" card! ” -jackal726

“ The photo is a nice shot, the card around it is pretty darn bad. "RS", return specialist? just a guess as I have never seen a card from this set before. "RS", really sloppy? ” -NJDevils

“ The Browns, the way they should be. ” -jlaz10

“ This card looks like somebody threw up. ” -switzr1

Set: 2012-13 Panini Megacracks (Rate)

Card: #188 Fabio Coentrao

“ The hair is ALIVE! ” -carthage44

“ Look at that hair ” -Young Kilo

“ I'm assuming Megacracks in Europe wouldn't have the same connotations as it might in the USA, with crack, of course, being a highly illegal drug. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Glad to see Rod Stewert's hairdo alive and well ” -jackal726

“ Good player. Mourinho used him everywhere he wasn't supposed to. He is best at left back or as left midfielder to take advantage of his speed. Unfortunately, Mourinho put him as central defender or defensive midfielder. He is one of those players that would accel on a second tier world class team (Valencia, Spurs, Dortmund, Benfica, PSG, Lazio for example), but he went for the big bucks and is now relegated to the bench on Madrid. ” -deporcoruña

“ Quite a difference between his headshot and action pictures. ” -jlaz10

“ Very unfortunate photo. He looks like a Megacrackhead. ” -UNC_Samurai

Set: 1986 Topps (Rate)

Card: #613 Roy Smalley

“ Roy Smalley III played from 1975 through 1987 with the Rangers, Twins (twice), Yankees and White Sox. Career: .257 average, 163 home runs and 694 RBI. He was named an All-Star in 1979 while with the Twins and won a World Series ring with the Twins in his final Major League season (1987). His father, Roy Smalley Jr. played in the Majors from 1948-1958 with the Cubs, Braves and Phillies. ” -carthage44

“ 1984: Yankees/White Sox? He was traded for Doug Drabek. So the trade involved a Cy Young winner for a clutch World Series Game 1 pinch-hitting double...just not with either team involved in the trade. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ Pretty decent set. Only problem was the off center cuts that were made. I have 100s of cards from this set that are so off center they are basically trash. Thanks Topps ” -addysdaddy

“ Reminds me of the poor term papers I handed in when I waited until the last minute. This designer must have done the same. ” -NJDevils

Set: 1986 ProCards Winston-Salem Spirits (Rate)

Card: #20 Jeff Pico

“ That may be the simplest card back I've ever seen. I hope this photo was not taken during a game, it must be very disheartening if nobody comes out to watch. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Simple and clean, can't ask for much more from a MiLB card ” -jackal726

“ Really weird pants stripes, especially for a Cubs affiliate. ” -jlaz10

“ Seems the only time I comment is on a minor league card. Great staged photo on the front. Like the simplicity of the card both front and back. We sure do get a lot of these minor league cards on RCOTD. ” -yokonashiwa

Set: 1998 Collector's Choice (Rate)

Card: #401 Mark Loretta

“ Great picture. I have always like the Collector's Choice sets from Upper Deck. Even the picture on the back is really well done. I like cards that tell a story. Edmonds most likely is safe while Cordova is tagged out. Would however like to know the base he played (likely 2nd), but instead of telling you it just says infield. That might be this cards only knock. ” -yokonashiwa

“ This looks more like a mid-90s design than late 90s, but it's a good design. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ For this being a "low end" card (i.e., inexpensive, aimed at kids), it's actually pretty nice. Great photography on this card and the layout/design is pretty solid. (Although, the CC logo could have been less on the front.) ” -vrooomed

Set: 2005 Topps eTopps (Rate)

Card: #55 Hideki Matsui

“ So, does this card actually exist, or is it digital only? ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I dont even know what an "etopp" card is. Don't want to know. ” -NJDevils

“ eTopps sure had some nice card designs. I'll take this over any of the recent Topps Finest concoctions of the past few years. ” -mkaz80

“ Oh eTopps... personally, I really liked the idea and enjoy the cards I have. Just another product that had potential and ultimately failed due to Topps shoddy customer service and the speculator market. ” -jackal726

“ I don't see a stat for "Adult Videos Owned." ” -UNC_Samurai

“ Better on the A's. ” -jlaz10

“ Concept was good, execution was terrible. ” -vrooomed

Set: 1991 Score (Rate)

Card: #746 Jeff Shaw

“ Rookie prospect? Home boy looks 35. ” -Young Kilo

“ nothing like the 91 Score set to get us fired up! Wahoo, I'll take 100 of 'em. ” -flcardtrader

“ Scan seems very washed out. It appears Score started out with decent designs and then plummeted...because the design of this one is not bad at all. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I think I have a copy or 10 of this one. ” -Mike67

“ The lost art of writing flavor text for card backs. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ The Indians racing stripes remind me of Major League. ” -jlaz10

Set: 2005 Playoff Absolute Memorabilia - Team Trios (Rate)

Card: #TT-14 Alan Trammell / Jack Morris / Kirk Gibson

“ A nice trio of players. Between these three players they have a combined 11 All-Star appearances, 7 World Series titles (2 World Series MVPs), 4 Gold Golves, 4 Silver Slugger Awards, a NL MVP and a no hitter. Hard to believe that none of these three guys are in the Hall of Fame. However, Trammell was inducted into the National Polish-American Sports Hall of Fame in 1998. ” -carthage44

“ It's amazing how many borderline HoFers there were on that '84 team. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ Interesting card design. The wide open space under the photos looks kind of strange, but I am guessing- and I really have no clue- that there is a relic parallel set which would have 1, 2 or 3 jersey or other material swatch in that open space under the photo. Or, I could be wrong and it's just a funky design! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Absolute whatever. ” -NJDevils

“ Interesting use of the Tigers script instead of any one of their primary logos. ” -jlaz10

“ Not a fan of this design. ” -vrooomed

Set: 1999-00 Hoops (Rate)

Card: #22 Tracy McGrady

“ Hey, another of mine. Cool! Fun fact: This was the last card scan needed to complete the set on the Database. I always was a fan of McGrady- I even broke out and wore the 2003-04 (I think) home Magic jersey to my last scale model club meeting, earlier this month. Unfortunately this was during the time where the Skybox products were written as if talking to the player...not a good concept, luckily it didn't last long. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ McGrady played from 1997-2013 with the Raptors, Magic, Rockets, Knicks, Pistons, Hawks and Spurs. He also played in China during the 2012-13 season. Career Stats: 18,381 points (19.6 PPG), 5,276 rebounds (5.6 RPG) and 4,161 assists (4.4 APG). He was a 7x All-Star, 2x All-NBA First Team and a 2x Scoring Champion. McGrady is currently pursuing a baseball career by working with Roger Clemens to become a pitcher for the Sugar Land Skeeters of the Independent Atlantic League. ” -carthage44


“ Oh, was hoping for a T-mac minor league baseball card...like how he jumped over his cousin to attempt this awkward layup... ” -SaveDaKid

“ PURPLE RAPTORS!!!! ” -jlaz10

“ Good timing. The Raptors are finally back in the playoffs!! ” -DanD

Set: 2010 Topps Allen & Ginter (Rate)

Card: #151 Kanekoa Texeira

“ Texeira was drafted by the Brewers in 31st round during the 2004 MLB Draft but did not sign. He was drafted again, this time in the 22nd round during the 2006 MLB Draft by the White Sox. In 2008, he was part of the trade that sent Nick Swisher to the White Sox and Texeira was sent to the Yankees. In 2009, the Mariners selected him in the Rule 5 Draft. He played in the majors in 2010 and 2011 with the Mariners and Royals. Career: 1-1 record, 4.66 ERA and 33 strikeouts. He last played in 2013 in the Reds organization and is currently a free agent. Texeira is the cousin of Shane Victorino. ” -carthage44

“ Really weird to see the stats spelled out, not in numerical form...but cool. They should have included his first name on the front though. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Sorry but it is 2010 not 1910. I see no point to this type of card. ” -NJdevils

“ They should have just left the RC off of the card. ” -jlaz10
