Random Card of the Day

Monday, June 3, 2013

Set: 2000 Upper Deck MVP - NASCAR Stars (Rate)

Card: #NS8 Terry Labonte

“ Looks like is is getting sucked into another dimension. ” -biggiofn7

“ Woohoo, finally one of my contributions is chosen as card of the day!! I've posted almost 7000 cards and every day I hope it's one of my scans, finally it is! I recieved this card as a "Random act of kindness" this past October, the whole insert set actually. Terry is my mom's all time favorite, he also won the championship the year I was born, 1984, and again in 1996, setting the record for longest elapsed time between titles...he still races several times a year, after trying retirement in 2007 and getting bored with it. Also, funny this card was chosen today, exactly a month after I literally came about 5 minutes short of dying from ketoacidosis- prevent diabetes if you can, whoever reads this! I had no idea I had it, and it almost killed me. Learn the warning signs, I had - and missed - them all! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I hope that at some point during an interview, when asked about his pit crew, that Terry said "THEEEEEEEEEEEEEEYYYYYYYYYYY'RE GRRRRRRRRRRRREAAAAAAAAAAAAATTTTTTTTTT!!!" ” -SaveDaKid

“ NASCAR should get more recognition than it does right now. It pretty much redefined auto racing. ” -jlaz10

“ Noooooooooooooo!!! ” -Hollywood42

Set: 1993 Triple Play (Rate)

Card: #158 Jack McDowell

“ I was one of the many uneducated kids who often got a brand that if it didn't say topps, fleer, donruss, upperdeck, or score then there was a good chance I thought the card was crap and only flies on the wall know what I did with those in my youth...probably ate one for attention... ” -SaveDaKid

“ I sort of like this design. I can't help but wonder was that pitch a strike, HR, hit? ” -koloth42

“ The White Sox road grays still look clean and new even though they've been wearing them untouched (mind the change of sleeve patch) for 20 years. ” -jlaz10

“ The BBWA doesn't know if this is worthy of being the Random Card of the Day. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ No missing this guy's name! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I don't like black borders but not a bad card for a lower priced set. ” -NJDevils

Set: 1993 Topps (Rate)

Card: #58 Jose Melendez

“ This card gives you that lonely feeling. He seems like he is out there by himself. ” -biggiofn7

“ I guess I'll just throw this ball here ” -Young Kilo

“ This is the peak of your 4 year career... ” -SaveDaKid

“ Did he even suit up in spring training for the Padres that year? I thought he was traded in the off-season to the Red Sox. ” -UNC_Samurai

Set: 1990 Score Supplemental (Rate)

Card: #54T Renaldo Turnbull

“ This is a photo of biceps and gold pants. The rest is incidental. ” -Luckynumber78

“ I have a hard time believing this is real, because most of that set was nothing but annoying subsets. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ Not much to complain about here. Great action shot, big image, border and name aren't distracting. Looks like a set I would chase.. ” -wamk

“ I've always like the 90s Saints unis with the bright gold pants and Louisiana/Fleur-de-Lis logo on sleeve ” -jlaz10

“ Is the black line at the bottom part of the card or a poorly cropped scan? Not that it really matters, I'm just curious. That's just the way I think, LOL. ” -Billy Kingsley

Set: 1960 Leaf (Rate)

Card: #37 Duke Snider

“ Man, Snider looks like someone who knows he's good looking -- or just knows he's good! ” -Luckynumber78

“ This card was originally supposed to feature Roy Campanella. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ It kind of looks like a modern picture. Just put black and white over it and...BOOM! you got yourself a 1960 card! ” -eyoung11

“ Great card. I remember when these came out. The black and white photo was unique to a kid who was used to color cards. ” -NJDevils

“ Another classic cap logo is the Dodgers interlocking LA. Many people don't notice how clever it is that the bottom of the L crosses the A. ” -jlaz10

“ Black and yellow, black and yellow, wait its white. ” -Dixxy

“ May be the most bland design ever. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I think John Travolta should play this guy in a movie, before he gets much older... ” -SaveDaKid

Set: 1980 Topps (Rate)

Card: #722 Jose Cruz

“ The first year I bought from Topps as a 15 year old card dealer. 60,000 1980 Topps cards coming to the house was pretty amazing back then. Broke them into sets and sold them for $11 to local customers. Of course, with 1978-81 Topps, you got a lot of double prints, which were basically worthless. Also, the last year of the Topps monopoly, until 2011, of course. ” -PlayerPCCollector

“ One of my favorite baseball players, Jose was always exciting at the plate. Plus this is my favorite Astros uniform, great colors and number font. All in all this is a very nice card. ” -Gunny

“ Not bad looking card, but how did he fit that huge afro in that tiny helmet. Is this former Blue Jays outfeilder Jose Cruz Jr's dad? Kind of looks like him. ” -PDIZZLE

“ One of my favorite old uniforms! ” -Jason Culley

“ Not a bad design overall but would have been better without the position flag and fake signature. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ The great Tequila sunrise unis! I still think these are some of the best in MLB history. ” -jlaz10

“ Stirrups!! ” -Hollywood42

“ I have always appreciated these designs. Topps did the same for hockey. Simple and it always looks good. ” -Dixxy

Set: 1997 Pacific Prisms - Light Blue (Rate)

Card: #50 Cecil Fielder

“ Considering it's purpose is to let light pass through it, there is no less appropriate word to associate with Cecil than "Prism". ” -UNC_Samurai

“ Cool looking design...probably looks even better in person! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Now I'm slipping into the Twilight Zone..." ” -jlaz10

“ Creepy ” -Hollywood42

“ What a NAME for BASEBALL!!! ” -Dixxy

“ Why, oh, why have two faces of the same guy...Or his that a relic patch of Cecil's actual face? Is this card 1 of 1? ” -SaveDaKid

“ That looks like one of those privacy fences behind him. ” -biggiofn7

Set: 1993 Topps (Rate)

Card: #558 Ryan Whitman / Mark Skeels

“ Wooh! Double Babyfaced Shots of teenieboppers!!! ...I don't get Bball... ” -Dixxy

“ Back when they were a major league team ” -volbox

“ I actually like this design. Usually with two player cards they just have headshots, these look like the actual cards. ” -biggiofn7

“ Wow those kids look young. And to think they are both in their 40's now. ” -koloth42

“ Two legendary players- Ryan "Slim" Whitman and Mark "The Animal" Skeels. ” -PlayerPCCollector

“ ...Who???... ” -Mike67

“ Wouldn't it have been better of they each got a card, instead of having to share one? ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Are the Marlins the All Time leading team for producing cards of players never to be heard from again? ” -flcardtrader

“ This looks like a showdown at high noon. "This card ain't big enough for the both of us, Skeels." ” -Luckynumber78

“ Oh, the old Marlins teal caps! It's a shame they changed the scheme. ” -jlaz10

Set: 2007 Inkworks Hellboy Sword of Storms (Rate)

Card: #17 Her Fire Unleashed

“ I love the movies & comics ,these cards not so much.They look like something I could draw & that's not a compliment folks. ” -uncaian

“ To quote the soup Nazi: "NEXT"!!! ” -NJDevils

“ My fire is unleashed due to my hatred of this card... Well, it's not quite that bad, but this still deserves a "What?" ” -Hollywood42

“ What's going on here? ” -jlaz10

“ Seems like an odd choice for an animated series...not a property that interests me but I'm glad to see another non-sports card chosen for Card of the Day. Maybe one day it'll be one of my own contributions... ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Umm. Yeah. No thanks. ” -koloth42

“ It is kind of hard to see the people through the creepy yellow fog (or fire) ” -Schnidyman

“ You got to be kidding! ” -dobbie

“ Keep it PG... keep it PG... I'm FAILING!!!!! ” -Dixxy

Set: 1993-94 Upper Deck (Rate)

Card: #452 Greg Johnson

“ Alert the authorities someone put in a card that's not baseball!!!! I actually like this set, nice front design & back.Good selection of players & inexpensive. ” -uncaian

“ The Red Wings white jersey is another reason why the NHL should switch back to light jerseysat home. ” -jlaz10

“ Interesting expression... ” -Hollywood42

“ He just looks mean and mad at the world. Or else he is scared. ” -biggiofn7

“ I didn't know Quasimoto played hockey ” -Schnidyman

“ That's the look you give as you realise that in 5 seconds you are going to eat puck and there's really nothing you can do about it ” -Dixxy

“ He looks like he just got caught on film doing something he wasn't supposed to! I really like this design UD used that year, the first time I ever saw it was the last time one came up as Card of the Day. Much better than the basketball design that I am well familiar with from that season. ” -Billy Kingsley
