Random Card of the Day

Set: 1986-87 Fleer (Rate)

Card: #119 Bill Walton

“ Had a good few years before he got hurt. My least favorite basketball announcer of all time. I absolutely hated hearing him call games. ” -Id8jlb8666

“ Who wears short shorts? Bill wears short shorts. ” -Howintensive

“ Bill Walton is quite a character. These days he is more well known for his broadcasting but a great player who missed more time with injury than anyone else in league history- 4 full seasons. He only played 10 games in 1986-87 due to injury, missed all of 1987-88 and called it a day. Hall of Famer, 50 Greatest Player, and the only person to win both the NBA MVP and Sixth Man of the Year awards. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Fleer's first foray into basketball, as the previous 3 years were served up exclusively by Star Company (no one else WANTED the NBA license!), and before that was Topps. Where Beckett denotes the "true" Jordan RC, but it was really 2 years before that in a Star Co set. ” -vrooomed

“ This guy is hilarious when he announces college games now. He is always high as a kite! ” -carthage44

“ Iconic set. ” -captkirk42

“ what an overrated NBA career ” -wax_house

“ Love this card set, Walton looks like he is auditioning for the DC Hawkman movie though! ” -Rod_Davis_86

“ Boy, this card brings back memories! I bet I have this card somewhere in my boxes! Great photo too! Love him or hate, Walton was a classic! ” -bkklaos

“ Love to see Walton in his Celtics uniform. And I was always happy to hear him as an analyst for Arizona Wildcat games this year. ” -armac

Set: 1991 Arena Draft Picks French (Rate)

Card: #23 Jamie Pushor

“ What??? ” -Id8jlb8666

“ I got a number of these in I grab boxes at Target Canada. There was some good cards to be found, inserts and unopened packs from around 2008. Alas Target Canada is no more. ” -dobbie

“ Playing hockey in a suit...that can't be easy! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Not a bad set,came out when everybody was jumping on the hockey bandwagon. ” -uncaian

“ "Hockey draft picks, in tuxes, on skates - Yes, let's do that!" - the statement that NEVER should have been uttered. However, one of the players my wife collected (Martin Lapointe) was in this set (sets, actually, there was an English and French version), and there were autographed cards of each version too. Yes, we have them. ” -vrooomed

“ Pretty Classy Hockey Card. ” -captkirk42

“ Looks like he went from Prom to the Hockey rink! ” -Mihome316

“ Love the Pee Wee Herman outfit ” -NJdevils

“ Love the tux! Classic!!! ” -carthage44

“ Also known as the best dressed French athletes edition. ” -koloth42

“ Anthony Davis has got nothing on this guy ” -jackal726

“ What is this? The Prom Night card set? Was he a 2nd Round pick for Prom King? ” -C2Cigars

“ Poor Jamie didn't have a prom date... I like absolutely nothing about this card. ” -switzr1

Set: 2010 Topps Allen & Ginter - Mini (Rate)

Card: #114 Milton Bradley

“ First time I've seen him smiling. Then again, maybe he's planning to beat up the photographer ” -volbox

“ My first thought on seeing this is "OOOOOHHHHH A&G" then "I wonder if it is an A&G back or a No Number"? ” -captkirk42

“ Allen and Ginter, Gypsy Queen, National Chicle, Goudey, Turkey Red, 206, Diamond Kings. Same cards, different sizes and borders. I don't want portraits of ballplayers. They're not George Costanza. I'm sure whoever designs these cards works hard on them, just as I work hard to avoid them. ” -Id8jlb8666

“ Very disappointed with the Allen & Ginter cards throughout the years. ” -carthage44

“ Not a fan of A&G nor Gypsy Moth. ” -NJDevils

“ Archives, Heritage, Gypsy Queen, & Allen & Ginter - All products using old designs. Anyone have a contact at Topps to tell them "Enough already!"? ” -vrooomed

“ Allen & Ginters is one of the most eclectic sets out there.I really like them. ” -uncaian

“ Now if they drew him up in some late 1800's Seattle apparel... ” -jlaz10

“ To say Milton Bradley struggled in his Seattle seasons would be an understatement. ” -duaned99

Set: 1997-98 Donruss Canadian Ice (Rate)

Card: #67 Brendan Shanahan

“ My first hockey Card of the Day! Cool! On January 31st I was given almost 3000 hockey cards...and I've been working on getting those not already posted to the Database posted...yes, I actually sorted them by what needed to be posted and what did not. I'm STILL working on them although now I am down to the mirror foils only, which drive me nuts so I don't work on them all that often. I have a couple of Chrome/Finest/Bowman's Best/Prizm ahead of me as well. I don't know a whole lot about hockey but I am learning. I really like this card due to the Tireman in the background, too. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ A ton of hockey being scanned in lately...even Billy is on the band wagon! ” -bkklaos

“ TopFive favourite player !! Could score! Could hit!Could lead the Leafs to a Cup? Oh well 2 out of 3 is not bad.I like this set too. ” -uncaian

“ I love these group celebration photos! ” -mkaz80

“ I know that it is the luck of the draw but I am amused that the depiction of a Canandian Ice card is of a player from the Detroit Red Wings, USA. ” -koloth42

“ Tireman seems to enjoy this goal ” -PMB

“ We liked this set when it came out, except for the card numbers - a little hard to read and sort quickly. :) ” -vrooomed

“ Almost didn't see the player name and team at the top there on this. Got to love the subtle unintended advertising of modern cards now. Actually it is sort of surprising that they don't airbrush (well photoshop now-days) rinkside ads out. ” -captkirk42

“ BRENDAN SHANAHAN!! This takes me back to some of the best years of my life. ” -Howintensive

“ Must be hard to skate with Tireman hanging onto your legs. ” -C2Cigars

“ Look guys, I found the Tireman! ” -marcbrubaker

Set: 2014 Topps Gypsy Queen (Rate)

Card: #251 Erik Johnson

“ I wish Topps would stop messing with the colors in the photos on these and other cards (Like the Olympics issues) ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Good looking card, though I prefer a first name to a first initial. Even if that's how they did it on the original GQ cards. I want to know who a player is when looking at the front. Otherwise you have another Pro Set Platinum! ” -switzr1

“ Nice card. When Topps brought back Gypsy Queen from the tobacco card graveyard the first year I had zero interest in them. I thought they were hideous. The next year they looked OK and I had gotten one in a trade or a group break and thought they really weren't THAT bad. Some years they are extremely ugly though. ” -captkirk42

“ He is still fairly young but his stint in the Majors the past two seasons have been rough. Having a confidence problem right now. Hope he can get it together soon. ” -carthage44

“ Is it me or des his head look small compared with the rest of his body? ” -koloth42

“ I have some of these (they were used as box filler for a set I bought). The card stock is nice. That's all I have to say. ” -vrooomed

“ I like that Gypsy Queen is made, and readily available, but it's not my favorite offering. ” -jackal726

“ Gypsy Queen won me over with this border last year. This photo, not so great a choice. Too much prominent crotch. ” -marcbrubaker

“ For some reason, I really like the Gypsy Queen set, regardless of year. Maybe its the combination of my two loves, art and baseball. ” -engine614

“ No, No, a thousand times NO. ” -NJdevils

“ Not a big fan of Gypsy Queen. All of their designs are too similar. I also don't like the heavy card stock. ” -suomibear8

Set: 2003 Topps (Rate)

Card: #500 Mike Piazza

“ I wasn't back in the hobby when this set came out. When I first saw it a couple of years later I hated it. Now I like it as I do a lot of the 1990s and early 2000s sets I had missed during my modern card hiatus. Piazza has a unique look here on this card. It almost looks like he just pulled something or his trow just missed the mark. ” -captkirk42

“ It seems like the headshot in the little speedometer would have made a better card photo. What a drab design. No wonder kids don't care about baseball cards anymore. ” -revnorb

“ This year of Topps always throws me off. I don't own any and rarely see them. Also, why isn't this man in the hall of fame already? Not that it's relevant anyhow nowadays... ” -Id8jlb8666

“ Not big fan of the design - never cared for blue borders - not professional looking in my opinion. The player, however, I am a big fan of, even though he played for 2 of my "least favorite" teams - Phillies rivals LA and NYM. His 5 games with my 2nd favorite team, can't really count. Still, one of the best catchers ever, and definitely the best of the 1990s/2000s. HOFer? I say - YES! Oh, and he was born 1 year before me - to the day! ” -vrooomed

“ I wasn't a "fan" exactly, but there's no doubt in my mind that Piazza belongs in the HOF. ” -jackal726

“ Baseball stats are great and Topps almost always gets it right. ” -carthage44

“ The Mets never looked good with black accents. Too much going on, plus an ugly color combination. ” -jlaz10

“ Nice to see a card of Piazza in the catcher's gear. Look forward to him getting in the Hall of Fame. ” -armac

Set: 1951 Bowman (Rate)

Card: #23 Bill Walsh

“ Is there any vintage card that isn't cool? I have not seen one! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ At least card companies did it back then too - same design, same year, different sport. :) ” -vrooomed

“ Love the 50's Bowmans. ” -captkirk42

“ I wish I had more of these cards. Anyone looking to sell these, please PM me! ” -carthage44

“ This is why I want a time machine. I don't want to go back and see dinosaurs, I don't want to go back and watch gladiators at the Colesium. I want to go back to 1951 and buy a bunch of packs like this for a nickel. ” -jackal726

“ It looks like he's harvesting football plants. ” -wax_house

“ You know, I don't think I've ever seen a negative comment about a vintage card featured for the card of the day. Well let me be the first...I hate the JUST KIDDING! This card's awesome. ” -Id8jlb8666

“ Not to be confused with the 49ers Head Coach. He had a 5 year career with the Steelers and two Pro Bowl appearances. Then 37 years as an Offensive Line Coach with two colleges and five AFL/NFL teams. Being part of three Championship teams. As to the card, love the simplicity of the 1950s cards. ” -C2Cigars

“ Sleeves! On a football jersey! ” -jlaz10

“ Love the set. What a difference in equipment today. ” -armac

Set: 1993 Topps (Rate)

Card: #566 Rod Brewer

“ This card is blandness incarnate, but this Card looks like he's trying to cop a free trip to first by having his teeth nicked by a pitch. ” -revnorb

“ Too similar to the 1992 set for my taste. Right before things went haywire. ” -vrooomed

“ Looks like Topps took 1993 off. Very bland design. ” -carthage44

“ Ah 1993 Topps this was one of the last years I was really into cards before I took a brief hiatus from actively collecting modern cards. I got fed up with all the holograms, chrome and gimmick cards that made up the madness of the "Junk Wax" years. Only to come back around 2005 for more trading card madness. I probably need to complete this set as well. ” -captkirk42

“ Pretty uninterested design. The early 90s where certainly not Topps' best years. ” -koloth42

“ The Cardinals have some great unis, but a stripe down the legs of the pants would be a nice touch. ” -jlaz10

“ I actually really like this card. Its simple and you dont need a magnifing glass to read it :) ” -engine614

“ I'm sure I saw him play, but I don't remember him. I like the card design though. ” -jupiterhill

“ I really prefer the red cap/helmet or the home Sunday bird cap on Cardinals cards. 1993 was one of the better-looking Topps sets of the 1990s. ” -switzr1

“ I really like this set, despite the absence of a team logo on front. 1993 was the year Topps finally upgraded their base set card stock to match what Donruss and Fleer had done in 1992, and slightly ahead of what Score had been using since 1988 (and the back looked more like what Score had been producing than anything Topps had ever done). As with every year from 1988-1993, I bought tons of these aimlessly. They even turned up at Big Logs around 2000 for something like $5 a box. I thought the Cardinals black helmets and caps looked really sharp, too. ” -DaClyde

“ Always dug the nameplate on '93 Topps, and I like the backs even though they get some flack for being difficult to read. Not much going on in this Rod Brewer card, though. ” -marcbrubaker

Set: 1955 Topps Double Header (Rate)

Card: #83 Joe Frazier / 84 Don Mossi

“ Interesting card. Clearly a folded design, and it appears the feet would match up with both photos. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Interesting concept - glad it didn't catch on. ” -vrooomed

“ As a fan of vintage cards I love these things. I don't have any but I think they are cool. They tend to be pretty expensive though so I'm not sure I'll ever own one. ” -captkirk42

“ Sweet card and very creative for it's time! ” -carthage44

“ Whats the idea here, if you fold it over the image lines up, like the back of a Mad Magazine? That's kinda cool, but I wouldn't want to be the guy upside down on the back. ” -jackal726

“ These are great. Never saw one before. ” -NJDevils

“ Awesome is the word that comes to mind for me! These would be considered "treasures" in my collection! ” -bkklaos

“ Very interesting gimmick card. I bet the kids loved these in 1955. ” -C2Cigars

“ Those stirrups! ” -jlaz10

Set: 1996-97 SkyBox Premium (Rate)

Card: #74 Ed O'Bannon

“ I normally don't comment on basketball because I don't collect it, but I have to say, I actually like this design. There are a few tweaks I would make to improve it, but overall, especially given the era it came from, it's nice! ” -vrooomed

“ Why the infield on the back of he card? ” -NJdevils

“ The one man who may change collegiate sports for ever. Last time I heard. He was now selling Toyotas in California. ” -deporcoruña

“ While I consider 1996-97 the best season of NBA basketball cards overall, the Skybox set is rather on the lower end of the coolness spectrum. I am not a big fan of the computer generated background. O'Bannon only lasted three years in the NBA, the first two with the Nets and then one with Dallas. Jerry Stackhouse, also visible on this card, came from the same draft and lasted in the NBA until 2012-13. O'Bannon's impact on the NBA is negligible, but he may end up changing college sports (for the better) on a wide scale. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Classic NBA jerseys. The '90s is my favorite era of uniforms, for basketball at least. ” -jlaz10

“ Not sure if I've seen any cards from this set. ” -captkirk42
