Set: 1989 Best San Antonio Missions (Rate)

Card: #15 Luis Lopez

“ The San Antonio Missions? Great team name. Love the use of the Alamo for the logo, of course they had to with Missions in the name. Great pose and nice picture. Like the close up for the back. This is a great looking card for being a Minor League card and not a well known card company. ” -yokonashiwa

“ Minor League Card! The colors of this one are reminisent to the failed local team in my home town of Anderson, IN from the mid-90s. That team with the yellow and light blue was the Anderson Lawmen. It is always fun to see cards for these teams. ” -koloth42

“ There was/is really a team calends the Missions? ” -wamk

“ I would prefer it if he was called Luis. But looks like he was born in Brooklyn so I guess we have to go with "Louie". oh yeah, not a bad minor league card ” -NJDevils

“ A lot of these baseball cards of late aren't leaving s lot of options to poke fun at them. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ This is better-than-average photography for a minor league card, but couldn't they have had him pose anywhere near a plate? Anyone can swing for the fences from the pitcher's mound! ” -Luckynumber78

“ I gave the picture for this card! A nice minor league uniform for the era. ” -jlaz10

Set: 2004 Upper Deck MLS (Rate)

Card: #10 John Spencer

“ Interesting to see this design used on the main UD set for this sport. It's very similar to the inserts in 2003-04 Finite for the NBA. At least, that's the first thing I thought when I saw it...especially the back of the card. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ This used to be my favorate UD soocer set, but over the years I've liked it less and less. The back is awfull. It would be better if they just put the info in a streight line. ” -deporcoruña

“ The current Rapids kits are so much better than these ones. ” -jlaz10

“ Nice front of card, not nice back of card. Not a collector of soccer (futbol) cards. ” -NJDevils

“ The design that happens to go between his feet makes it look really weird ” -Hollywood42

“ The motion of the photo is going the opposite way from the design, making a confusing combination. Also, his left foot sinks into the background due to bad photoshopping. I'll pass on this set, I think. ” -Luckynumber78

“ Well, you don't see many soccer cards as cotd lately, (football, for our European members) Upper deck really does have their hands in everything. Great design and an excellent action shot. I wouldn't be upset to find this set in my collection. Very appealing. ” -Dixxy

“ Not my favorite Upper Deck offering for MLS cards, kind of a boring design. Anyway, after leaving England and Scotland John Spencer had a decent run with Colorado Rapids. He has since been inducted into the Rapids Gallery of Honor. ” -Gunny

Set: 2005 Bowman Heritage - Mini (Rate)

Card: #23 Magglio Ordonez

“ The ball get hit so far out of the park that it's in the bushes, I take it. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I hate the mini card concept ” -Young Kilo

“ Magglio looks like he thinks this card is as silly as I do. I am simply not a fan of the "heritage" sets. Just another money maker for the company. ” -NJDevils

“ Maggs, good player for a short while.. Never could come back from his injuries.. Not sure what he's doing in the photo. golfing? hunting? chopping down a tree..? hailing a horse & buggy taxi..? ” -lyfestory

“ He looks like he is in a school play, giving a big final wave to the crowd. Other than that, I do like the overall look of the card.. ” -wamk

“ Classic Tigers. ” -jlaz10

“ Is the triangle in the top left a variation deal? I hope so because the card would look great without it ” -Hollywood42

“ I'm tellin ya man, he was this tall! ” -Dixxy

Set: 1961 Post Cereal (Rate)

Card: #62a Paul Foytack

“ card back looks like infield dirt..: ) ” -lyfestory

“ It looks like he just realized that there's gonna be millions of breakfast eating kids with nothing else to look at in the morning except that 2-11 W/L stat line. ” -Id8jlb8666

“ I ate a lot of raisin bran as a kid to make this set. Probably the only time I ate healthy. After this it was back to the "Sugar Pops" as they were called back them. ” -NJDevils

“ Love this set. I have 2 of these cards and looking for more. ” -uncaian

“ I'm guessing that the brown back and all stats on front means this was originally on the back of the box. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Oh how I wish it were another sci-fi card... ” -Dixxy

“ Green underbrim!!! ” -jlaz10

Set: 1991-92 Parkhurst French (Rate)

Card: #168 Doug Wilson

“ decent cards but the big Parkhurst logo on back was distracting.. ” -lyfestory

“ Great player,especially in Chicago,great team leader.I liked this "Parkhurst" set & the next year, but after that.... ” -uncaian

“ Always found this set to be the most uninteresting set put out. And they carried the design over to the next year! ” -Dixxy

“ I like hockey cards but not a fan of these with 20-25% of the card taken up by a marble like stripe. The backs on these are pretty sad as well. ” -NJDevils

“ Sucks that his eyes are closed on the front picture. The fact that this is in French is kind of cool. ” -Luckynumber78

“ The Sharks still look good, but nothing's cut it since this. ” -jlaz10

“ Gotta love those guys in the 90s that left their helmets at home (Wilson, Langway, Carlyle, MacTavish, Snepsts, Marsh). ” -DanD

“ Looks like this picture was taken at the Cow Palace, the original home of the Sharks. Interesting place to see a game some very odd angles. ” -Gunny

Set: 1995 Donruss (Rate)

Card: #395 Ricky Jordan

“ I like this set. I really like how they boxed the player's stats in their own individual boxes. I don't like how hard it is to read the front of the card. However, I really do like the dual picture. ” -yokonashiwa

“ This is a great picture for the card, showcasing the player well, as well as those wonderful turtlenecks that were so popular in the mid-'90s. The foil and the player name are hard to see, but that may just be the scan. ” -Luckynumber78

“ I always liked Donruss designs. ” -suomibear8

“ The age of "so-so" cards. This card says so little. ” -NJDevils

“ My team! So sad that Ricky didn't live up to the hype. Nice card. Like the use of the home plate shape for the little photo. ” -vrooomed

“ This shows how classic, yet modern the Phils unis were when they were unveiled. They still wear this design today. ” -jlaz10

“ 1995 Donruss- a great looking set. ” -PlayerPCCollector

“ Am I the only one who thinks it's funny that they put the stars over his head? he kind of looks like he just woke up from a good whomp... ” -Dixxy

“ Hard to read the e-version, and the labels at the bottom could be centered much better, but other than that, it looks like a cool set ” -Hollywood42

“ HATE the backs of this series... ” -doc722

Set: 2012 Panini Contenders (Rate)

Card: #90 Steven Jackson

“ Take away the poor background, you have the start of a good card. But they didn't, so what you have is an ugly card. ” -NJDevils

“ I like the design on this one. Although I'm not generally a fan of cards where the player is placed over a various color background, if they are going to do it a ticket design is a good choice. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ It's a shame the latest NFL rule limits players to one helmet per season. This means the Rams won't be able to wear their LA throwbacks. ” -jlaz10

“ This is a rare case of a busy background that looks nice. The white part throws the whole thing off, though. You can barely read the writing there. ” -Luckynumber78

Set: 1991 Horse Star Kentucky Derby (Rate)

Card: #2 Vagrant

“ A Horse is a horse of course of course... ” -ThemightyOx

“ I live in Louisville and drove by Churchill Downs today and I still just don't care about the Kentucky Derby. That being said, I've never seen this before and am impressed that these cards exist. (although in 1991 they made cards of everything) ” -ray fosse's ghost

“ I can't wait to see the comments for this one. How's the design on this one? Who would have preferred an action shot? Is this a Vagrant rookie card? ” -PlayerPCCollector

“ Let's all not rush out and try to corner the market on these. Actually the back of the card is pretty interesting for historical purposes. $7000 for a horse back in 1876 is an amazing price. ” -NJDevils

“ Horse cards, who knew? ” -CluelessJoe

“ In the early 1990s, they'd make a card for ANYTHING, wouldn't they? ” -vrooomed

“ I really like this card, and I don't know why as I don't care for horse racing, I feel they don't respect the horses. (I like animals more than many people) ” -Billy Kingsley

“ What a cute little horsie. ” -jlaz10

“ How exciting. ” -Hollywood42

“ ” -DKE

“ I like it. Maybe not the best color scheme, but good photography on this card. Back is clean with only a small ad. ” -vrooomed

Set: 2001 Upper Deck Pros & Prospects (Rate)

Card: #82 Jason Kendall

“ Enough with the lines on the front of the cards!!! Would have been an excellent card but someone had to pull out their Etch-a-Sketch. ” -NJDevils

“ I hate it when a foot or the bat isn't included in the centering of the picture ” -Hollywood42

“ The Pirates vest look is great, but they have to do it right. ” -jlaz10

“ Like the colors, but too much border on the front.. ” -lyfestory
