Set: 1988 Leaf/Donruss (Rate)

Card: #12 Tony Fernandez

“ I would cheer for the jays... but my father told me that the Grey Cup games were for hooligans and fools. I didn't have the heart to tell him that the grey cup was hockey, not soccer... ” -Dixxy

“ Had four different stints with the Blue Jays. I always liked the Diamond Kings cards ” -Mike67

“ Once (c. 1992) singled to right only to be thrown out at first by Larry Walker. ” -volbox

“ This 1988 Leaf/Donruss set comes up a lot. (I even have one in my collection, not sure where I got it) First time I've seen subset come up from it though. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ His mustache is trying to escape via the corners of his mouth. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ I knew my high school French would come in handy one day. "arret-court"...."stop short". Isn't that George Costanza's father's gimmick..."stopping short"? ” -NJDevils

“ More teams should use contrast-panel caps like the Jays did. ” -jlaz10

“ Now that's a Jay who earned his Diamond King status! He was inducted to the team's Level of Excellence following his playing career. ” -DanD

“ Tony Fernandez. What a guy ” -eyoung11

“ I generally like cards with nice paintings instead of photos. These Donruss ones are a little odd, since they often used the referenced photographs on different cards, and the colours here look a little more like melted candy than human skin. Still a nice card and a nice set. ” -LuckyNumber78

Set: 2000-01 Pacific Private Stock Titanium - Game Gear (Rate)

Card: #131 Rene Corbet

“ I always liked Rene's tenacious style of play. Although he didn't spend a great deal of time as a Penguin he did help the club in 2001 reach the Conference Final series. As far as the card goes, Penguin player check, Penguin memorabilia card check, instant purchase done. ” -Gunny

“ Sharp looking relic card even if it is hockey. ” -koloth42

“ Looks like someone just asked him a question about non-Newtonian physics. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ I like it. Cool design, fairly early on in the relic phenomenon, yet still gives you a little bit about the person on the back. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Sometimes less is better than more when it comes to insert cards. Sometimes Pacific hit the mark but other times not so much. ” -uncaian

Set: 1986 Fleer (Rate)

Card: #114 Dan Pasqua

“ This design just skirts the border of classy and boring. ” -Luckynumber78

“ This picture just looks fake ” -Hollywood42

“ I like the design, but that's par for the course as I've always liked Fleer designs. I'm not sure why Fleer and Topps used to list player's homes, though...yeah, it's kind of cool to see who is local and you might see walking down the street, but if I were a player I'd be afraid some nutty stalker was going to hide in the bushes waiting for me to come home. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Ew. Yankees ” -Erik_Young

“ Fairly typical Fleer design from the 80's. Never was much of a fan of Fleer at the time as I was a hardcore Topps fan. I guess when it comes down to it I prefer a white border unless it it an insert set. ” -koloth42

Set: 1988 Topps (Rate)

Card: #186 Andre Tippett

“ "Doug Flutie is our starting QB??"....it was the best of time and it was the worst of times for this HoF'er on a non-playoff bound 1988 Pats team. ” -flcardtrader

“ He appears to be deep in thought, as if pondering how many of the future members of his team will end up in jail...or maybe just wondering when Topps is coming by to take that photo. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Andre Tippett never shot nobody either. ” –jimmyjam

“ Good Ole' Andre ” -Erik_Young

Set: 1993 Pacific (Rate)

Card: #263 Greg McMurtry

“ I like the borders...too bad they designed it to make your head tilt to the left, thus causing semi-permanent neck injury (lol) ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Greg McMurtry never shot nobody. ” -jimmyjam

“ I miss the old Patriots uniform. ” -wamk

Set: 1988 Donruss (Rate)

Card: #120 Mike Morgan

“ I lost count at about his sixth team ” -volbox

“ Mike Morgan at the tail end of Phase I of his career, promising failed prospect. Coming up next, Wiley Veteran. 88 Donruss always reminded me of that Waterworks card game. ” -ray fosse's ghost

“ kinda boring. ” -Colts12

“ I'm always been amazed at the contortions that pitcher's have on so many of their cards. Morgan is no exception. Looks like he is going to scream that pitch across the plate. ” -koloth42

“ When I first got some of these cards, I wasn't a fan. As time went on though, I started to like them. ” -jupiterhill

Set: 2011 Topps - Diamond Anniversary (Rate)

Card: #258 Rafael Soriano

“ Some cards just don't want to be scanned. This one is so shiny it probably glows in the dark. ” -ray fosse's ghost

“ This card has to look awesome in person, Topps has always had some neat foil effects. I'm surprised this wasn't serially numbered, although I may just be missing it somewhere. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ He throws so hard that he shatters his card! ” -koloth42

“ Ugh....I can't see ” -suomibear8

“ That is one sparkly card. ” -wamk

“ oooo shiney! ” -Colts12

“ such a sick card ” -Erik_Young

“ Loving how you can't see the background at all ” -eyoung11

Set: 1986 Fax-Pax Football Greats (Rate)

Card: #12 Tom Finney

“ That's not a football card! ” -ray fosse's ghost

“ Hmm, born 1922...I think that makes him the oldest person to appear as Card of the Day that's not from Baseball. This looks like it might be post card sized, certainly gives lots of room for text! (that's a plus) ” -Billy Kingsley

“ A one team man, Finney played his entire career for Preston North End and also earned 76 caps for England. On my list of things to see is his statue "The Splash" located at the National Football Museum. I love the look of the England shirt and the old football on this card. ” -Gunny

“ I thought he was holding a coconut. A new ball would have been nice for the photo. ” -NJDevils

“ Never heard of him ” -eyoung11

“ Wow...I'm a huge futbol lover...nice England international crd her...not gonna act like I know this chump but gonna have to look into this set...killer ball.. ” -SaveDaKid

“ Very nice. It is great to be able see cards of old soccer greats. I wonder what the current stars would manage with those leather heavy soccer balls used back then? ” -dobbie

Set: 1984 Topps (Rate)

Card: #775 Dave Parker

“ This card is the same age as me. I think that is the first time a card from 1984 has come up as Card of the Day. I like the design, too. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ All those All-Star years and he never led the NL in a single category? ” -UNC_Samurai

“ One of my favorite all-time Pirates. I was lucky enough to find a Dave Parker black Pirates jersey at TJ Maxx, made by Mitchell and Ness I believe, for $35. The most recent Pirates game I went to this season I was the only one with a Dave Parker shirt. ” -Gunny

“ Classic Topps design. Didn't get any of these growing up but I do like them. ” -koloth42

“ Nice ” -Hollywood42

Set: 2005 Score (Rate)

Card: #146 Chris Chambers

“ I like the design of this card, but I always thought the Score logo was a bit too big, it took away from the picture too much. ” -jupiterhill

“ He's holding the football and it says "SCORE" next to his hand. Does that mean the end zone is near? ” -ray fosse's ghost

“ Nice catch. ” -koloth42

“ This is a pretty lousy scan...hard to tell how the card really looks, or what it says. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Seems like there's been a rash of low-quality scans getting randomly selected lately. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ Yuck ” -Hollywood42
