Random Card of the Day

Set: 1991 Bowman (Rate)

Card: #321 Kent Hrbek

"Looks like a gunslinger ready for the shootout...which isn't far off the pitcher/batter duel relationship." -wmcduff

"Hey Kent, ask Pat Sajak to buy a vowel. How in the world did he get away from lifting Ron Gant off of 1B during the '91 Worl Series?' -addysdaddy

"Bleh card, but a very underrated player. He should have been rookie of the year in '82, but Ripken was a media darling, and Hrbek a small market no-name." -Bplay

"'Say hello to my wooden friend'" -tony

Set: 2008 Topps Heritage (Rate)

Card: #139 Jeff Ridgway

"Ugh, those stripes are distracting. Jeff doesn't look too pleased about the background either." -wmcduff

"Vintage-looking cards work better with classic uniforms (Yankees, Red Sox, Dodgers, ..)." -DanD

"He doesn't look like he feels regular. Cue Jamie Lee Curtis to help him out." -addysdaddy

"Is he at a candy store in shock that he got nabbed?" -tony

"I don't know if I'd call him a rookie star. His ERA for 2007 was 189.00!!! He is currently in the Washington National minor league system." -cynicalbuddha

Set: 1991 Classic I (Rate)

Card: #T84 Scott Chiamparino

"Oh wow, the border on this takes me back... This couldn't be more early '90s without Chiamparino wearing parachute pants while pitching." -wmcduff

"Nothing too Classic about this card" -DanD

Set: 2008 Topps (Rate)

Card: #132 Ramon Vazquez

"The name at the top looks very state fair carnival. 'Step right up, hit the ball past Ramon and win a prize! Sure, he'll sign that for you kid...'" -wmcduff

"not liking the unfocused background and Ramon- you're supposed to go after the ball, not salsa away from it" -tony

"The 2008 Topps is another design ruined by the inclusion of a facsimile autograph. With the way handwriting is these days, who needs to see scribble on a picture? I'm also not crazy about the letters-in-bubbles design, which looks like the marquee of a 1960's Vegas casino. The white borders make it look like a baseball card, however, and the allotted space for the photo is sufficient." -PlayerPCCollector

"Not too bad on the design of these cards." -addysdaddy

Set: 2004 Topps (Rate)

Card: #688 Jeremy Guthrie / Grady Sizemore

"Weird slashy graphics. Bigger than they have to be too. Looks like they're both puckering up for a kiss, too." -wmcduff

"This card looks like a movie poster. Two thumbs down!" -addysdaddy

"Grady was a draft pick of the Montreal Expos with Cliff Lee and were traded to the tribe." -GoldenEye

"Grady Sizemore was part of one of the worst trades ever made by the Montreal Expos...........Sizemore, Cliff Lee, Brandon Phillips and Lee Stevens for Bartolo Colon and Tim Drew! Ooops! Guthrie was an Indians 1st round pick that they gave up on...Baltimore grabbed him off waivers, and he's been a halfway decent innings-eater since." -wopagnie

Set: 1994-95 Upper Deck (Rate)

Card: #281 John Cullen

"Second center behind Mario for much of his career, I think. Must make it hard to get noticed." -wmcduff

"Speedy and creative this was John's second stint with the Penguins." -Gunny

"Wish I could tell who the player was so I could tell him "it's hockey, drop the batting stance"." -NJDevils

"looks like he's ready to get slammed by Philly!! HA! I'm not diggin the photo though- looks like name is hard to read and half his foot is cut off by the boarder. UD could have done a better job centering and adjusting that border..just sayin" -tony

Set: 1994-95 SP (Rate)

Card: #8 Adam Oates

"Adam Oates was a strong guy. Probably feeding Neely in front for another effective garbage goal." -wmcduff

"It must be a coincidence that the card design points to his hand, but his 1079 career assists show he had some of the best hands in the game." -DanD

Set: 2009 Upper Deck America's Team (Rate)

Card: #3 Anthony Spencer

"If you look real real close, you can even see the player's name on the card." -NJDevils

"America's Team? The team America loves to hate, perhaps." -wmcduff

Set: 1993 Pacific Texas Express (Rate)

Card: #119a The Simple Life

"Wha? What the heck kinda card is this? I suppose it's baseball, but seriously, what's with this?" -wmcduff

"He wears a Stetson now, Stetson's are cool." -Gunny

"Why did the marlboro man get a baseball card??" -haogaole

"Stuck in developmental hell for over a decade, I can't help but wonder what The Simple Life would have been had the show stuck with this original concept." -DanD

"As great as Nolan was, this card set was just the opposite" -NJDevils

Set: 1990 Topps (Rate)

Card: #777 Tim Laudner

"Huh. There's a bat end at the end of this bat..." -wmcduff

"Tim Laudner card: no position, no logo, no like." -NJDevils

"Never really cared for the design on these cards, though the blue was nicer than the orange or red they used for some." -Mike67

"'You're supposed to see a face in there. Do YOU see a face in there?' Frank Costanza" -DanD
