Set: 1990 CMC Edmonton Trappers (Rate)

Card: #3 Gary Buckels

“ What's up with the cards having part of the designs/words cropped off lately? I like seeing the minor league/oddball cards come up as card of the day. To me that's actually more interesting than the mainstream sets a lot of the time. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ CMC did a decent job with Minor League Cards in the day. I do like this set and have do own the CMC Indianapolis Indians. Looks like a bad crop job on this particular card. ” -koloth42

“ If it weren't for the team name, I would have thought this was the Angles based on the uniform. The Trappers were an Angels affiliate, however. ” -jlaz10

“ I swear I know who this is. But I have no idea who this is ” -Hollywood42

“ Was this a contest to see how many colours they could get on one card? Because I think they lost. Everybody... lost. ” -Luckynumber78

“ A classic from my childhood. It's not Gary Redus, but it'll do. ” -ray fosse's ghost

“ I've never been a fan of blank white pants. At least have some piping. ” -jlaz10

“ That Reds logo is probably the best baseball has ever seen ” -Hollywood42

Set: 1990 Leaf (Rate)

Card: #300 Frank Thomas

“ Oddball thing I notice- I think this is the first even hundred card (100, 200, 300, etc) card to come up as card of the Day in the 14 months I've been reading/writing about them. Only one I remember anyway. I like the design of this one, simple, yet it shows a lot of the image, has stats and a lot of text about the player, with a different photo. It doesn't get much better than that. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ When this card was issued it was expected to be a major collectible. That was a time when it was believed that cards would never stop becoming more collectible without regard to the number that had been produced. Now we can collect this for the fun of collecting. ” -Jerry

“ The White Sox look best in black and white. You're the WHITE Sox, not the RED Sox. ” -jlaz10

“ HOF! That's all I have to say. Sweet card, too. ” -vrooomed

“ Liked this set it was an awesome card cool design ” -MAS23

Set: 1994 Pinnacle (Rate)

Card: #155 James Francis

“ Pinnacle? Hardly. More like nadir. ” -NJDevils

“ Even without a team name on the card, you can still recognize it's the Bengals by the tiger-striped helmet. ” -jlaz10

“ I swear I've seen him in scary movie. You know the one where they make fun of broke back mountain. ” -Dixxy

“ Hi my name is James Francis, outside linebacker for the Cincinnati Bengals, and I eat quarterbacks for breakfast. ” -PDIZZLE

Set: 2000 SkyBox (Rate)

Card: #72 Steve Beuerlein

“ Great full body picture. Steve had a great career for never really being a great QB. Based on how he is holding the ball, I think he is getting ready to fumble it. ” -yokonashiwa

“ Steve Buerline had a decent season in 2000, with the team going 7-9. The following year without Buerline Carolina went 1-15, with those 15 losses coming consecutively after winning their first game. ” -duaned99

“ The Panthers look so much better in Carolina blue than black. If you're going to use your states color, than own it! ” -jlaz10

“ Interesting to see that the football set retained the Skybox name. The basketball set of the same design was called Fleer Premium. ” -Billy Kingsley

Set: 2013 Topps Heritage (Rate)

Card: #63 Jason Grilli

“ Is he happy or in an immense amount of pain? Can't tell! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ you mad, bro? solid retro design... ” -lyfestory

“ Is that a slug crawling out of, or in, his nose? ” -deporcoruña

“ Hooray a Bucco! I like the picture and Jason Grilli is one of my favorite Pirates, he has excellent taste in Italian restaurants, well, at least according to his twitter feed. The design of the card is much like an old Topps design, I don't like it. ” -Gunny

“ Jason found out that he had been told that he was being demoted to AAA affiliate. ” -John h

“ Shiney. I card I've scanned. This wasn't my favorite heritage set but some of the cards are nice. I acquired this one on the off chance that Grilli wouldn't end up with the Indy Indians on a rehab assignment on an autograph Saturday. ” -koloth42

“ I love Topps Heritage. Awesome set!!! ” -jlaz10

Set: 2007 Upper Deck Masterpieces (Rate)

Card: #87 Roberto Clemente

“ How do you adjust this card to get better receception ? Fuzzy picture ” -uncaian

“ Great player, great card, just great all around. ” -Gunny

“ He was great baseball player and an even greater man. He died trying to get aid to earthquake victims in Nicaragua. It sounds selfish but at least we got to see what a great player he was before he passed, at least he died doing something good for others unlike some of the selfish and spoiled athletes today who take everything they have for granted. ” -PDIZZLE

“ Loved the Masterpice sets. Haven't put them together yet though. Definitely something I'll need to do ” -Hollywood42

“ The Pirates brought this uniform back as an alternate this year. ” -jlaz10

Set: 2012-13 Panini Megacracks (Rate)

Card: #264 Roberto Trashorras

“ Unlike Latin America ("tarjetas" or "cartitas"), trading cards are called "cromos" in Spain. ” -volbox

“ Rayo Vallecano, sometimes is considered the third team in Madrid after Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid. But this season marks their 3rd consecutive in the Spanish top flight. ” -Gunny

“ Just when you think you've seen all the possible third-rate backs of cards, this one shows up. ” -NJDevils

“ I like the sash on this kit. ” -jlaz10

“ Another player from the Barcelona youth system. Although he is originally from Galicia, Barca stole him away from Deportivo and Celta (the two Galician clubs) very early. He did have a stint with Celta before his tranfer to Rayo Vallecano about two years ago. Solid midfielder. Has good technical abillity (as with all Barca youth players) and very good at free kicks. ” -deporcoruña

Set: 1989 ProCards (Rate)

Card: #1720 Kevin Appier

“ Quick turnaround after just being added. I like the blue border as it matches the Royals color. I hope to get this card soon. ” -jupiterhill

“ So many empty stands on the cards for minor league players. Support baseball go out and support you local Minor League club! ” -koloth42

“ Royal blue... Appier was a pretty good pitcher for a little while.. ” -lyfestory


“ Right before breaking into the big leagues, the kind of card any minor league collector enjoys... ” -SaveDaKid

“ A perfect minor league uniform. It's okay to use the affiliate's name as long as you use their uniforms, too. And the hat has an O as well!! ” -jlaz10
