Random Card of the Day

Tuesday, August 19, 2014

Set: 1985 Topps (Rate)

Card: #282 Marcus Allen

“ Black border cards are not fun at all to scan. Always shows every speck of dust on the scanner tray (and how does dust make it's way to the middle of the bottom of the tray?) and also they tend to chip easily. But they do look pretty cool. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Loved these cards but so many (like this one) were printed way off center. The back is the best park of the card, CLASSIC! ” -carthage44

“ Could have been the greatest ” -SSG Temple

“ 1971 baseball all over again - at least in terms of border. I'm not a fan of the type going one way, and the photo going another. The photo is almost square anyway - rotate, and make the card vertical. Back is fine. ” -vrooomed

“ This is an absolutely awful set not only in visual layout, but an insanely high percentage of the cards are cut off-center. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ "Now let's take one where you seem really disinterested... PERFECT!" ” -jackal726

“ Very odd name arrangement. Also, great silver Rayduhz helmet. ” -jlaz10

“ I loved this layout. Big, simple, and commanding. Perfect for football. Baseball or hockey, not so much. ” -Howintensive

Set: 2004 Fleer Showcase (Rate)

Card: #127 Lee Evans

“ All right! A Big Ten boy! ” -Howintensive

“ Yes, it has been a while since one of my cards showed up. I always liked cards with the players college uniform on. The card is also serial numbered #1! Huge game for Wisconsin coming up to kickoff the 2014 season against LSU. GO BADGERS!!! ” -carthage44

“ Well, my assessment of this player is, he won't be a HOF player. This is a great card, but even at 1 of 599, won't be of much value. Not that that is the only reason to collect. I love to get those number 1 cards for a limited number card. I just only have one of them. ” -yokonashiwa

“ Cool serially numbered 1 rookie card. I always loved getting #1. This design for Fleer Showcase is a great one too. I don't like digitally created backgrounds as a general rule, but it's hard to argue against a set that looks this good. I admit that I don't know much about football, but isn't a home run threat a baseball thing? ” -Billy Kingsley

“ First I was like "hey, doesn't it kinda look like that Wisconsin player is running across a big Buffalo Bills logo?" ...then I realized that the Wisconsin player was, in fact, running across a big Buffalo Bills logo. Maybe if I could read the teeny tiny text this would somehow all make sense? ” -revnorb

“ Fleer almost dropped this card at the last second. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ Kind of cool that it is card #1 of 599...the other 598 owners of this (limited edition) card are drooling over your card. Always thought it would be kind of cool to try to get all the rest of the cards...then if you destroyed all but one, you'd have a 1 of 1, right!? ” -bkklaos

Set: 1988 Fleer (Rate)

Card: #224 Gary Ward

“ ” -duaned99

“ This design never did much for me. ” -koloth42

“ This was a decent looking set IMO. No frills, no chills.... ” -suomibear8

“ I love that these old Fleer sets ordered the cards in the set by team, starting with the World Series champions and going from best to worst team. ” -duaned99

“ This is probably the last Fleer set I liked. ” -switzr1

Set: 1989 Fleer League Leaders (Rate)

Card: #12 Andre Dawson

“ I really like the concept of league leader cards...especially as for me my favorite aspect of card collecting is the documenting of history...but...they really should say in WHAT the league leader depicted leads the league in! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ The graphic design on this card is so bad it could be an O-Pee-Chee CFL card. ” -revnorb

“ I don't think I ever had any of these cards, but I like the design. ” -jupiterhill

“ 44-card boxed set goodness. :) Lots of HOFers to be found in those sets. Great for player collectors to get different cards at reasonable prices. Fun stuff! ” -vrooomed

“ League leaders in what category? ” -deporcoruña

“ The Hawk does not look pleased. ” -wamk

“ He caught a whiff of the "Ditch Masters" on the front page. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ This man does not look happy to be a Chicago Cub. ” -Howintensive

“ I love these oddball box sets. But I hate the Cubs. ” -switzr1

Set: 1994-95 Topps (Rate)

Card: #230 Rik Smits

“ Awesome to see one of my Rik Smits cards come up as Card of the Day! When I learned of the NBA's existence, he was the first player I really started following...why, you may ask? Because Marist is practically within walking distance, and my mom's Alma Matter. He played his entire career with the Pacers, but retired too soon due to injury- a fate that befalls many centers, especially those taller than 7 foot 1. He is the only Marist player to make the NBA, although one other was drafted, he only got as far as the D-League. There are two Marist players on one of the Florida football teams, but I don't remember which one. If I can figure it out I'd like to add at least one card of each of them to my collection at some point- one is a rookie this season coming. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Oh yeah... Good ol' Smitty... I remember him... (nope) ” -Howintensive

“ I liked this set when it was released. I still kinda like it now, but this shot of Smits is terrible. ” -jupiterhill

“ Great Reggie Miller-era unis on those Pacers. ” -jlaz10

Set: 1995-96 Topps (Rate)

Card: #54 Keith Primeau

“ Ugh to that name font. Everything else is fine, but that is hideous. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Terrible front of the card. You can't even read the name. However, the back of the card is great with lots of stats, information and an action photo. ” -carthage44

“ 95 was the ugliest design year for Topps IMO. Baseball was awful too. ” -suomibear8

“ Nice - w/Stevie Y looking over his shoulder. The back of the card is too cluttered looking and the team name looking raised from the photo and the foil, cursive name doesn't do it for me. I do like the large photo with the white border. ” -vrooomed

“ Classic Red Wings. Can't get better than this. ” -jlaz10

“ Up close and personal... ” -CluelessJoe

“ Woot, woot!! He lives where I live! He did in 1995 I guess. Now? I don't know. ” -DanD

Set: 2004 Upper Deck MLS (Rate)

Card: #88 Dwayne De Rosario

“ Is he ducking for cover, getting ready to bounce it off his chest, or head butt it? I'll guess B. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ First glance - looks like the ball is pulling him toward it. ” -vrooomed

“ Nice shirt except for the underarm panel. ” -jlaz10

“ Everybody do the Spastic Chicken! ” -Luckynumber78

“ Is this supposed to be Luke lightsaber training with the practice drone? ” -revnorb

“ And I thought pitchers had strange contortions appear on cards. ” -koloth42

“ If the San Jose Sharks merged with the San Jose Earthquakes, then they would be the SarkQuakes... Quick! Get Syfy on the phone! I want a writing credit! ” -Howintensive

“ I think this guy could be one of Canada's best players ever. As for the card, this used to be my favorite MLS card design until the 2013 Topps came out. ” -deporcoruña

“ There was an older skit that made it into a Dr. Demento compilation called "Boot to the Head." I think this card should be the cover photo for the sequal, "Ball to the Face." Nya nya... ” -Dixxy

“ I wish I could find soccer cards in my area. I have a few I've bought from eBay, but my collection is far too small, considering how much soccer I watch. I have probably less than 25 cards. ” -switzr1

Set: 1991 Topps (Rate)

Card: #100a Don Mattingly

“ Mattingly, get rid of those sideburns!! ” -Howintensive

“ On his way to a HOF career till his back gave out on him. Finally starting to get the hang of being a manager ” -Young Kilo

“ Forget the errors on the card - Why is it that neither he nor Keith Hernandez are in the HOF? Mattingly was one of the best hitters and fielders (i.e., COMPLETE player) of the late 80s and early 90s. First basemen get no HOF love. ” -vrooomed

“ This is the first time since I've joined the Database that an error card has come up as Card of the Day. Cool! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ That Topps 40th anniversary logo up in the corner is really distracting. That couldn't go on the back instead? ” -revnorb

“ Gotta love error cards! They are like unintended short prints On the back of this card it shows that Mattingly had 10 hits during the 1990 season yet he had 16 doubles. ” -carthage44

“ Donny Baseball's getting a little scruffy here. That ain't the Yankee way, right? ” -jlaz10

Set: 1992 MotorArt Iditarod Sled Dog Race (Rate)

Card: #80 1984 Champion

“ Kind of cool that this sport got cards, but I think the dogs should have gotten more coverage than the people, personally. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ What? Sled Dog Race cards? How did I ever miss these? LOL! ” -carthage44

“ Cool dog scarf ” -Young Kilo

“ He is, the most interesting man in Alaska. Stay frosty, my friends. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ Lol....that's all I got on this one! ” -suomibear8

“ Shouldn't the dogs be on this card ? After all they did all the work! ” -uncaian

“ Speechless. Truly speechless. ” -vrooomed

“ This is what I call random. ” -volbox

“ Is that the "Home" or "Road" parka? I can never remember. ” -wamk

“ Unbelievable! ” -NJdevils

“ When I'm not celebrating my 1984 Dog Sledding Championship I enjoy a nice cold Dos Equis Stay Thirsty my friends. ” -Dos Equis Beer

“ This guy looks like a tool but, running and winning the Iditarod is quite an accomplishment. ” -PDIZZLE

“ They really did make a card for everything... didn't they? ” -Dixxy

“ Nothing says Iditarod like a fur coat. ” -jlaz10

“ Oh my god he's so glamourous ” -Luckynumber78

“ Wow ” -switzr1

“ I suddenly want to own every card in this set... ” -Howintensive

Set: 1990 Upper Deck (Rate)

Card: #741 Hector Villanueva

“ Sometimes I really wonder if baseball is a sport. Look at this guy's physique and tell me you don't agree. ” -deporcoruña

“ One of my favorite designs. Clean, basic, and bright. The early UD years were great. ” -suomibear8

“ this card design is one of the reasons upper deck no longer exists ” -Baserunner3

“ Although the Cubs wore plain blue numbers for the majority of their history, their current numbers with a red outline are superior. ” -jlaz10

“ Sideways stats....hate them. ” -NJdevils
