Set: 2005 Bowman Heritage (Rate)

Card: #99 Mike Hampton

“ Is this a bad scan or is the card supposed to be blurry? I think it's the latter. Doesn't work for me, I like my cards in focus. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Ahh, Mike Hampton. I remember how happy we were in Denver when we signed him. Was by far and away the richest contract in sports at the time. Hampton told the Press he made his decision to come to Colorado based "on the schools". Riiiiight. He did jack around a dozen HR while here, including one on opening day. He'll of an overall athlete, but his salary damaged my Rockies for years.. ” -wamk

“ I like some of these throwback sets....I just wish they wouldn't do them every year. ” -suomibear8

“ Ah, the 1951 Bowman design. The simplicity. The lack of real competition (at this point - have you seen the Topps Red Backs/Blue Backs?). Looks a little odd in the 2.5" x 3.5" format. Still, wouldn't mind if a complete set of these fell in my lap! ” -vrooomed

“ Just plain awful. I think I'll have breakfast. ” -NJdevils

“ Fifty years' worth of digital graphics technology later and all they could figure out how to do correctly was to make a black box with some letters in it. ” -revnorb

“ These were the first templated BP jerseys. The basic options were shoulder loops and shoulder piping. ” -jlaz10

“ I suspect the Braves would love their money back for this decision. ” -addysdaddy

Set: 1989 CMC Syracuse Chiefs (Rate)

Card: #18 Hector De La Cruz

“ Great design. I could not think of a way to improve this card. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ The graphics on this card looks like the introduction of Action News at 11 in any major city USA ” -addysdaddy

“ SKY CHIEFS BABY!!!! Sniff sniff... takes me back ” -SSG Temple

“ The Syracuse Chiefs. Formerly the Syracuse SkyChiefs. And before that, the Syracuse Chiefs. Hey Teams, settle on one name please. Do you hear that Tampa, Anaheim Angels or whoever you are. Well done minor league card. ” -NJDevils

“ Great minor league uniform. Takes aspects from their affiliate (Blue Jays) and adds some unique parts as well. ” -jlaz10

Set: 1929 Kashin Publications (Rate)

Card: #70 Harry Rice

“ Ooh, vintage. This is one big card! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Nice piece of vintage ! Very cool ! ” -uncaian

“ Apparently the only stat category he ever led the league in, was errors for his position. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ What a great picture! Nice to see the pants up to the knees. I am waiting for some current player to catch his spikes on his on pants and fall over. Plus this guy is just looks classier than Sabathia and his ilk. ” -NJdevils

“ Team, anyone? ” -jlaz10

“ On my screen, he's staring at my username and it's creepy ” -Hollywood42

Set: 2000 Future Bee Power League UL (Rate)

Card: #182 Fumitoshi Takano

“ Uh...is this "Future Bee" Power League, or Future "Bee Power" League? If it's the latter, I assume they have some sort of honey company ties? And why is the team name in English, when this person and card is clearly from Japan? I have absolutely no idea what's going on here, but strangely, I like it anyway. Except for the team logo, which is kind of creepy. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Wow, never heard of this set, but love the international flavor! ” -bkklaos

“ Did Future Bee buy out Action Packed? Sure looks that way. ” -NJdevils

“ Let's play a game called...How much can you cram on one card! ” -SSG Temple

“ Success here gets you moved up to the Dogs The Shoot Bees Out Of Their Mouth When They Bark League. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ I like the contrast front number. ” -jlaz10

“ This a awkward card design, but probably not the worst. ” -addysdaddy

“ I usually don't like much made in the last 40 years or so but this is great! Great jersey, cool logo, nice design. I'm gonna go watch Ultraman now. ” -revnorb

Set: 1992 Topps (Rate)

Card: #537 Jeff Bryant

“ Wake me up when this one is over. ” -NJdevils

“ Same design from the baseball set issue from Topps. I suppose it was cheaper just to reuse it. Originality not needed Topps, thanks ” -addysdaddy

“ Interesting how the pants look gold. The Seahawks wore silver pants during this time. ” -jlaz10

“ Card back not available Click here to add. ” -volbox

“ 1992 - The year Topps realized they could print real stats and full color on the back of their cards, only five years after everyone else realized this! ” -UNC_Samurai

Set: 1991 JOGO (Rate)

Card: #199 Trevor Kennerd

“ Not a lot to like about this card. The picture and text/logo go different directions, the back is useless with no stats or bio, and what's up with the rat? At least the photo is a decent action shot! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Held in suspense...Is he going to stick the landing? ” -addysdaddy

“ I like the high whites on his socks. ” -jlaz10

“ The text makes me thing this should be a vertical card. The picture obviously is horizontal. I don't think it's just a coincidence that I have never heard of JOGO before ” -Hollywood42

Set: 1988 Fleer Baseball MVP's (Rate)

Card: #34 Larry Sheets

“ This card is a tribute for how cheesy the Baseball MVP set was or how bad the Orioles were in 1988...Nice 'stache there Larry! ” -flcardtrader

“ This is the definition of hangover ” -SSG Temple

“ Man, pranks back in the day were harsh. Does he even know his teammates are let something crawl up his face? ” -UNC_Samurai

“ It's amazing how little changed, other than the color scheme, the back and even front of this one looks to other Fleer releases from that time period. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ It's nice how the "Fleer Baseball MVP" logo dwarfs both the player name and the team and position, because otherwise i would have thought the MVP for that year was Jose Canseco. ” -revnorb

“ Wow, nothing says MVP like a boring pic on a boring card with boring lettering. Something about that typeface makes my brain think there are typos even though there aren't... weird ” -jackal726

“ I like the subtle placement of the Rawlings logo into the sleeve stripe. ” -jlaz10

Set: 1999-00 Fleer Force - Special Forces Forcefield (Rate)

Card: #SF4 Stephon Marbury

“ This card looks a lot better in person. I don't have this one (or at least I don't think I do) but I have others from this insert set, and the textured rainbow foil just does not scan well. Not really a big Marbury fan...although I do have one of the replica jerseys of his Phoenix #3, which is where the Nets traded him to after the 2000-01 season. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Still have a pair of Starbury's. Wish they still made them. ” -jupiterhill

“ Stephon Marbury is certainly part of the Very Special Forces. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ Holy ball, Batman. Talk about in your face. ” -vrooomed

“ Half card of the day. Where's the back? Please enter the back too! ” -NJdevils

“ Hahaha Brooklyn ” -jlaz10

“ Fleer sure knows how to come up with some interesting inserts. Can't wait to see this one in 2020 Fleer Retro. ” -jackal726

“ What a terrible sub set name...someday we'll be able to post images or video of our reactions to these cards...this card would get a head shake side to side with eyes closed... ” -SaveDaKid

“ Maybe I'm being too critical here, but I don't think there should be a "Special Forces" series unless there are military members on the card. Marbury's great, but let's not take away from the real special forces ” -Hollywood42

“ Whew, if Stephon hadn't saved it, that ball might have hit me in the face! 3-D! ” -DaClyde

Set: 1996 Fleer - Post-Season Glory (Rate)

Card: #2 Ken Griffey Jr.

“ Hmm, it almost looks like he's going to hit himself upside the head with his bat there. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I hate cards that commemorate some real or imagined milestone, they always seemed like extraneous garbage to me. That said, this one looks kinda nice, although they should've tightened up the kerning on the script "Ken Griffey, Jr." so the letters touched each other. ” -revnorb

“ ... no ring ” -SSG Temple

“ As a baseball fan, something about this card bores me. ” -NJdevils

“ Griffey was my favorite player growing up. It's really too bad he didn't have more postseason appearances in his career. ” -duaned99

“ Looks just like the Mariners today. ” -jlaz10

“ Busy front, but nice overall. ” -vrooomed

“ Some people are probably going to hate this design, but I gotta say, I really like it ” -Hollywood42

Set: 1988 Star Winston-Salem Spirits (Rate)

Card: #1 John Berringer

“ Is this the same Star that produced NBA basketball cards from 1983-84 through 1985-86? ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Your kidding me right? I have to stand here for a picture? Ok, here's my school yearbook pose. ” -addysdaddy

“ such a plain card and way too much blue. ” -nohascome

“ Ah man. It's John Berringer. Who the hell is John Berringer? ” -Young Kilo

“ Come on coach you just gotta let me play today. You can't say no to this face? ” -PDIZZLE

“ Dude was AWESOME in Platoon, a little less believable in Major League, though. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ I probably touched that card! ” -vrooomed

“ For just one moment in his professional career, this guy is #1. ” -ray fosse's ghost

“ Interesting that he's wearing a Winston-Salem cap, but a Cubs jacket. ” -jlaz10
