Set: 1963 Topps Astronauts (Rate)

Card: #45 John Glenn

“ I hope he wore that bow tie when he ate his 3-D fried egg on Mercury. ” -switzr1

“ Normally I don't trust a guy with a bow tie but John Glenn is a total badass. Went into space at 77 years old as a member of the U.S. Senate. You got my vote pal. ” -Id8jlb8666

“ Cool! I've been a fan of space exploration for my whole life- probably due to my love of Star Wars- my first memory of anything in life is watching Empire Strikes Back. I need to find some of these cards for my collection. I like how Topps used a continuation design for it's 1969 Man on the Moon series, of which I just got my first two cards of in December. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Awesome! Dixxy uploads all the "good stuff"! ” -bkklaos

“ Bow ties are cool! ” -koloth42

“ Aging myself, but I actually remember this! ” -BOBSCARDZ

“ I'm a sports card collector but this is just plain cool! ” -carthage44

“ This is a set idea that I think would be great if they did again with autos and GU space suits! I once worked for Charles Bolden, 4 time shuttle astronaut and now NASA Director. Great man! ” -CluelessJoe

“ The back makes the card for me. Fry an egg on Mercury. Made my day! ” -JimStaub

“ Great set. I don't know how I missed collecting these when I was a kid. I wonder if it was selective distribution? ” -NJdevils

“ John Glenn: An American Hero ” -jlaz10

“ You just have to love that bowtie! ” -Joshua825

Set: 1990 Score (Rate)

Card: #515 Jim Gott

“ I'll admit it. I really do like this set. My only gripe, and it's small - the numbers are not in the same spot on all the cards. REALLY small gripe. :) ” -vrooomed

“ Wow, he's moving so fast his mouth can't even keep up! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I love when the cards have full stats and a narrative. I rather see that than all the graphics ” -SSG Temple

“ I really like this score design. ” -carthage44

“ Am I the only one who prefers a horizontal back? ” -NJDevils

“ The Pirates, the innovators of pullovers and sansabelt, kept this look way too long. ” -jlaz10

“ I like the oversized and reversed letters that start his first and last name. The border and trim colors look like a Pac-Man cabinet... ” -revnorb

“ I've always liked the colorfully-bordered early Score baseball sets. 1988, 1990, and especially 1991. This was very uncommon in its day. This one has a nice back too. Too bad the 1990 Score Rookie/Traded set isn't colorful like the base set though. ” -switzr1

Set: 1984 O-Pee-Chee Michael Jackson (Rate)

Card: #31 Michael Jackson

“ One of the greatest entertainers ever and an even better human being. R.I.P Michael. ” -Id8jlb8666

“ I guess the interesting facts about Michael were used on cards 1-30? This sounds more like name-dropping. ” -switzr1

“ ummmmmm ! ” -uncaian

“ What do the Phillies and Michael Jackson have in common? They all wear only one glove for no apparent reason. :) ” -vrooomed

“ I am ashamed to admit that I have these cards. There, I am totally ashamed. ” -NJDevils

“ Definitely a baseball card. ” -jlaz10

Set: 2014 Score (Rate)

Card: #136 Marques Colston

“ Nice design. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I like the trapezoidal border; I don't like how so much real estate is devoted to the word "SCORE." ” -revnorb


“ I know score is cheap but they are great cards for young collectors. ” -carthage44

“ The Saints would look so better without neck roll. ” -jlaz10

Set: 2003 Fleer Patchworks (Rate)

Card: #44 Pedro Martinez

“ One of the best pitchers of all-time. ” -carthage44

“ Nice looking card. I like the way that Fleer, in its latter years, had the year beneath the Fleer logo on the back. Always makes sets easier to identify without looking for a copyright date in the small print. ” -switzr1

“ First ballot Hall of Famer ” -Young Kilo

“ Remember when Pedro grabbed Don Zimmer by the head and gently dumped him on the ground when Zimmer charged the mound? Well... Pepperidge Farm remembers. ” -Id8jlb8666

“ The good days of Boston baseball. ” -jlaz10

Set: 1952 Bowman (Rate)

Card: #24 Carl Furillo

“ Very cool even with the crease and worn corners. It gives this vintage card some real character. ” -carthage44

“ Love the vintage stuff. This is no exception. I'll even overlook the lack of stats, as that wasn't the practice yet. ” -vrooomed

“ This is an instance where a signature on the front works well. Furillo is easily identified by all while maintaining the intended design of the card. ” -switzr1

“ Here's a question for those more knowledgeable than I : is this card standard size, or slightly larger? I think it is slightly larger. I just got some 1950s Bowman non-sports cards (1952 US Presidents and 1954 US Navy Victories) earlier this month and they are both slight larger. The US Presidents set even uses the same design as this card essentially, the only difference being a nameplate on the front. Also, it looks like he's playing baseball in a train station. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Nothing like the Vintage cards! ” -BOBSCARDZ

“ Nice card, I really like the wrapper redemption offer on the back. ” -jackal726

“ Sweet! Love the old...(...er than me) stuff! ” -bkklaos

“ Wonderful card. Wish I had a few. Love the stadium in the background ” -NJdevils

“ Brooklyn Dodgers. 'Nuf said. ” -jlaz10

Set: 1994-95 Ultra (Rate)

Card: #30 Will Perdue

“ As a Bulls fan, Purdue was the MAN! Not a very athletic big man but served his purpose during the Bulls first three championships. ” -carthage44

“ Not a very good scan...the real card does not have those vertical lines through it. It's also much brighter. Despite winning multiple championships with the Bulls, Perdue is mostly known as the player the Bulls traded to the Spurs to get Dennis Rodman. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ With the appearance of the hair and left side of the face of Patrick Ewing. ” -JimStaub

“ Can the Bulls please bring back their early '80s "Chicago" script? ” -jlaz10

Set: 2008 Upper Deck Icons (Rate)

Card: #30 Champ Bailey

“ One of my favorite sets of all-time! Also, one of the best "bang for your buck" boxes that you could purchase. For about $50-$60 per box you would get two jersey cards, one autograph and two lettermen patch cards with a chance of getting an auto lettermen. ” -carthage44

“ Interesting texture design. I like it. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Nice, solid card. Hits all required points...Team logo, short narrative, stats... My preference is to have a borders though.. ” -SSG Temple

“ Don't like the card design, don't like the picture angle. ” -CluelessJoe

“ The front design is some kinda of nice but I think the picture of the player ain't using enough space on the card. ” -JimStaub

“ The Broncos road uni set is still too navy-heavy in relation to their orange home uniform. ” -jlaz10

“ This is an ugly card ! ” -uncaian

“ Hey I've been off the site for a few months with a move to a new town...came back just in time to catch one of my scans! Sweet! ” -bkklaos

Set: 1994 SP (Rate)

Card: #115 Clyde Simmons

“ SP used to be the "Gems" of the mid 90's. ” -carthage44

“ I like the design. Not one I've seen before, usually they used the SP designs in all sports, but not this one. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Front looks like he is one of those car crushers with the wall closing in on him. Or the garbage disposal in Star Wars. Again, which Cardinals team please? Phoenix, Arizona... ” -NJDevils

“ The Cards had some nice uniforms, especially with their state flag stripes. Their NFL 75th anniversary unis on the back were not so nice. ” -jlaz10

Set: 1966 O-Pee-Chee (Rate)

Card: #140 Jim Maloney

“ OPC, but no French. Still, love these, and would love to have a complete set of OPC from ANY year (pre-1990). ” -vrooomed

“ Jim and Astros P Don Wilson pitched back-to-back no-nos in 1969 at Crosby Field. ” -BOBSCARDZ

“ In my lifetime (since 1974), only Carlton, Gooden, Smoltz, and R. Johnson have had a higher wins total in the NL than Maloney's 23 in 1963. But he tied for 3rd that year behind Koufax and Marichal. I wouldn't mind seeing Maloney in a Heritage or Archives set. Other than buybacks, he hasn't been on a card since 2001. And there are a LOT of sets that include retired players. ” -switzr1

“ I absolutely love the diagonal stripe with the team name on the top left of the card. CLASSIC!!! ” -carthage44

“ The Reds had some beautiful vests. Interestingly enough, their player names were underneath the numbers on the back. ” -jlaz10
