Set: 1986 Topps (Rate)

Card: #231 Jim Frey

“ Another action-packed photo of Jim Frey. ” -ray fosse's ghost

“ The coach should have gotten his own card, not been relegated to the team checklist! That's one of my gripes with modern sports cards- no coach cards at all. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Poor guy. How are you supposed to do anything when your entire pitching rotation is on the DL at once? Think about that for a second, and realize that never happened during the time Prior and Wood were on the roster. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ Finally!! A card I actually have. ” -volbox

“ My first year of collecting was this set. Brings back old memories! ” -suomibear8

“ He looks like he was there the last time the cubs won the ws ” -eyoung11

“ Not my favorite Topps design. I guess even Topps has a miss once in a while. ” -koloth42

“ I never cared for the front design of the 1986 set, but I really liked the backs. I don't believe there was a decent photo in the whole set. ” -Shane715

“ The Cubs circle-C logo has undergone many changes, but has essentially been the same since the '60s. ” -jlaz10

“ Loving those glasses ” -Baserunner3

Set: 1999-00 Upper Deck MVP (Rate)

Card: #201 Michael Jordan

“ This was the first set UD issued where they had a subset of very similar cards after MJ retired. I don't remember off the top of my head how many but 20 or 30 cards, I think. They would do that for years, and then they would do it again after retirement #3. It's too much, in my opinion...still wish they had the license, though. This was the first year of MVP, it would last several years, until at least 2008-09. It replaced Collector's Choice (UD Choice in 98-99) and was usually the first UD release of the year. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I like the design of this card, it looks like they skinned a basketball. MJ looks like a puppeteer holding his hands like that above the ball. ” -ray fosse's ghost

“ Being from Indiana I never wanted to like MJ since that perennially toasted the Pacers, but Michael was just too good not to like. This card isn't what I would normally like but it just seems to be a fit for 23. ” -koloth42

“ Imagine the Bulls with sleeves. SMH ” -jlaz10

“ Classic card during the shift of centuries, got to love the style. ” -Baserunner3

“ Ahh, one of the 10,000,000,000,000 cards Upper Deck did of MJ.. ” -wamk

“ MJ > LBJ ” -Hollywood42

Set: 2010 Topps WWE Platinum - Rainbow (Rate)

Card: #44 Husky Harris

“ I might actually watch wrestling if the men wore more clothes....probably not, but it needed to be said, LOL. I'm guessing there are going to be some nasty comments posted for this card. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Words completely fail me. ” -ray fosse's ghost

“ This guy can actually wrestle & has personality,hopefully the Wyatt family angle will be good for him. ” -uncaian

“ Pretty flabby build for a wrestler. Especially since his dad and granddad were awesome back in the day. ” -biggiofn7

“ Ack! I just went blind! ” -koloth42

“ I get his name. ” -jlaz10

“ I never cared for the flashy WWE/WWF cards. I liked the ones that were more basic or resembled the MLB sets. ” -jupiterhill

Set: 1995-96 Metal - Tempered Steel (Rate)

Card: #3 Michael Finley

“ Horrible, horrible scan. I'm not sure how to get a scan this bad, after scanning some 50,000 cards and over 10,000 other, non-card scans, I've never gotten one as bad and useless as this. Hopefully some day this can be replaced with a real scan of this card. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Is the card's surface hard to scan? If so, it gives new meaning to 'iron unkind'. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ Should I have 3-d glasses on ???? ” -uncaian

“ Looks like rusted metal to me. Maybe it's just the scan. Is there a name on here? ” -NJDevils

“ Great scan. ” -bigsmooth

“ I wonder what brand of toaster they used to take this picture. ” -jlaz10

“ Egads. That image does not meet site standards. ” -koloth42

“ Whoa. Bad scan alert ” -Hollywood42

Set: 1973 Topps (Rate)

Card: #317 Danny Cater

“ I bet that black border on the back of the card sure makes for one condition sensitive set! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I was 7 when I bought my first pack of baseball cards in 1973, so this set has a special place in my heart. Not sure why Topps couldn't get a picture of Cater in a Red Sox uniform, considering it had been a year since he was traded in that infamous deal for Sparky Lyle. ” -PlayerPCCollector

“ Blast from the past. Wasn't old enough to have any of these. ” -koloth42

“ A Red Sox player in pinstripes? Airbrush wasn't invented yet. ” -jlaz10

Set: 1993 Pacific Texas Express (Rate)

Card: #24 No-Hitter #1

“ Love those Angels uni's from the early 70's. That decade brought baseball uniforms to their lowest point hopefully ever, but this one is a classic. ” -ray fosse's ghost

“ I actually like this set,giving the best pitcher ever(in my opinion)a nice tribute.It was the 1st time i had ever heard of Pacific. ” -uncaian

“ Those are some good-looking stirrups! ” -jlaz10

“ A perfect set for padding your collection stats. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ His name is "No-Hitter #1"? Reminds me of that MLB game where they showed some players name as "Minor League Guy" ” -Hollywood42

“ A lot of Pacific cards coming up as Card of the Day lately. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Stirrups!!! ” -eyoung11

“ Ahmmm... It's a football card, according to most of the world. ” -ray fosse's ghost

“ Now I'm off to dust off my NFL Showdown collection. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ When sports cards and gaming meet you get. . . this? >.> ” -koloth42

“ So this guy plays for "AIG"? ” -NJDevils

“ Goooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa llllllllllllllllllllllll !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ” -jlaz10

“ The long lost Neville brother. ” -MAS

“ One of my pet peeves is when they issue trading cards but try to make them into a game of some sort; what can I say, I'm a purist! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Not a soccer fan, but I'd imagine these would be very popular in Europe.. ” -lyfestory

“ Ewww Soccer ” -eyoung11

“ A great pitcher. Card isn't bad either. ” -NJDevils

Set: 1991-92 Wild Card (Rate)

Card: #82 Adrian Caldwell

“ Possibly the worst border ever. I know it's hard to design cards and sometimes you have to straddle the line between cool looking and classic, but this is hopelessly gaudy. I'm glad someone went there. ” -ray fosse's ghost

“ I never understood the premise behind Wild Card's promos. "Hey, let's give you a redemption card! You like this shot of a guy who's never going to play more than six minutes a game with the Rockets? Here, mail this card back to us and we'll send you a THOUSAND COPIES!!" ” -UNC_Samurai

“ The type of crummy card you get in a grab bag at a kid's birthday party or for free with a sports bloopers video tape. ” -DanD

“ Although I've always hated getting college cards, this is one of the sets I actually liked the design on. I don't even know if I have this card or not- for the past 17 years, when I get college cards I just put them into a box (boxes, now) and don't do much with them. Eventually I'll scan and post them to the database, but I have so many more real cards to do first! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I don't know what teams these uniforms were for, but they scream 90s. ” -jlaz10

“ Not an attractive card. Way too busy. ” -koloth42

“ The Wild Card sets were pretty neat. Too bad the company went under. ” -NJDevils

Set: 2005 Topps (Rate)

Card: #406 Fred Gibson

“ Awfully bland, with the emphasis on "awful". ” -NJDevils

“ 50 wonderful years of topps. ” -cincyreds

“ This is a pretty cool design. Thumbs up. ” -Colts12

“ The Steelers helmet is unique in the fact that the logo is only on one side of the helmet. ” -jlaz10
