Set: 1988-89 Fleer - Stickers (Rate)

Card: #3 Clyde Drexler

“ I was just thinking to myself that it's been a while since a basketball card came up, with how many myself and others have been posting lately, the percentage of basketball cards posted to the Database is really getting up there. This is one I have not yet hunted down, despite the fact that Clyde was one of my favorite players. I've been busy scanning, editing and labeling a whole bunch of mine, getting ready to begin posting shortly. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Arguably the best Blazers uniforms. ” -jlaz10

“ Typical 80's Fleer design. ” -koloth42

“ Fleer seems to win. What do they win? Consistently using horrible photographs. Also, what's up with the billions of stars? I do, however, like the re-use of the front design on the reverse. ” -vrooomed

“ The Glide, great player.. Less egotistical stars back then, so it would seem.. ” -lyfestory

“ Those Blazers unis are both dated and awesome looking. Don't know how that works. ” -DanD

Set: 1998-99 Upper Deck MVP (Rate)

Card: #113 Andrew Brunette

“ Interesting to see this design used in 1998-99 for hockey, as it was used in 1999-00 in basketball. Normally when they use the same design for a set across sports they tend to do so in the same year. When the basketball MVP set came out, I was not that big a fan of it, as it was a much smaller set than the Collector's Choice it replaced. I did, however, complete it easily so that was a plus. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Nice set colorful,affordable & just big enough with a few rookies to make it worth collecting.Brunette was a pretty good role player,played over a 1,000 games,in the NHL. before retiring. ” -uncaian

“ I like the 99 UD MVP design, looks good for all sports. Great shot of the player (unless this card is for the player in the background like the one from a couple weeks ago). ” -CluelessJoe

“ Would have been a nice card had they ditched some of the useless lines to nowhere. ” -NJDevils

“ This hockey set looks better than the baseball alternative. Likewise, Brunette looks better in a Wild jersey ” -Hollywood42

“ These Preds jerseys pretty much invented the apron striping on their back long before Reebok implemented it on half the NHL. ” -jlaz10

“ Great player photo but a little to busy with the border design. ” -koloth42

Set: 1998 Bowman (Rate)

Card: #5 Mark McGwire

“ Wasn't 1998 when he was setting all kinds of records for home runs? I vaguely remember the hype of that time...he even sponsored a NASCAR team in 1998. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I like the look and coloring of the card, but not quite sure that I like the fake signature. McGwire was one of the greats! ” -grim25

“ Odd picture on this one and the border is a bit thick. ” -koloth42

“ I'm thinking the Astros got lucky in 1997. ” -ray fosse's ghost

“ The Cards uniforms seem very bland to me. They need some piping. ” -jlaz10

Set: 2001 Decipher Star Trek the Borg (Rate)

Card: #78 Donik

“ There are so many great non-sports cards posted, and we keep getting game cards? What's up with that? Well, there are worse cards that could come up. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Star Trek CCG has become popular for card of the day. I have this one but I never played the Hirogen while I was into the game. ” -koloth42

“ oh no! not again! (and I actually like Star Trek) ” -volbox

“ A face only a mother could love.. heh... ” -lyfestory

“ Yup. Sorry that is all I can offer. ” -NJDevils

“ You might want to fix that. ” -jlaz10

“ Why??? ” -Hollywood42

Set: 2013 Topps Archives (Rate)

Card: #94 Curtis Granderson

“ It's my first ever submission as card of the day! I'm happier than Billy Kingsley! Yankees are terrible, but I do like some 82 Topps Granderson. (I was so hoping my first would be a Pee-Wee's Playhouse card or better yet one of the tattoo sheets...soon) ” -ray fosse's ghost

“ Design reprints with new players seems a little bit on the lazy side to me. ” -koloth42

“ Always baseball... Such a boring game... ” -jeeyeeii

“ You gotta love anyone that can produce that many triples. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ I like most of this Archives set. Not so much the '85 cards in it, but '72, '82 and '90 - even with all the '90 haters. ” -marcbrubaker

“ A very nice card. Could do without the facsimile auto on the front. Back is nice but I'd like to see a bit more contrast on numbers, makes them easier to read for us old guys. ” -NJDevils

“ Nice expression. Really couldn't choose a better picture, Topps? ” -Hollywood42

“ Nice looking card. I like the archives set. ” -Colts12

“ Topps Archives is a great idea, but seems a little bit of overkill considering Topps Heritage has the same idea. ” -jlaz10

“ I love the 2013 Topps Archives set. Brings together all of the styles we know and love into one collection ” -eyoung11

“ the set design was pretty cool and the colors stand out more with the newer card stock.. I like when Topps does this for current players.. ” -lyfestory

Set: 2010 Topps - Legendary Lineage Relics (Rate)

Card: #LLRBM Yogi Berra / Jorge Posada

“ Looks like they are both looking at the same thing. ” -CluelessJoe

“ Another scan ruined by the serial number being removed digitally. Otherwise a good card. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Nice theme to a jersey card, but jersey & autograph cards have become commonplace in today's sets bringing down any value they might have had.. Definitely would love to have some of the greats of the past though.. ” -lyfestory

“ Cool design, nice large swatches. I'd chase cards from this set. ” -wamk

“ It's funny how the Yankees uniforms look just as good today as they did almost 100 years ago. Must be the pinstripes. ” -jlaz10

“ Cool. Don't see many of these on RCoD ” -Hollywood42

Set: 1992 Pro Set (Rate)

Card: #141 Clay Matthews

“ This was a terrible set, even the stock was flimsy. ” -NJDevils

“ Not much to gripe about here. Nice large image, text and logo aren't too distracting. Too bad it's not more of an action shot. ” -wamk

“ I like this Clay Matthews better. From what I can see, he's not egotistical, doesn't call out that he's targeting players before games, and most importantly, doesn't look like a #&%$ that desperately needs a haircut. ” -Hollywood42

“ Clay without the girly hair.. hehe... Oh Pro Set, how we haven't missed thee.. ” -lyfestory

“ Pro Set's swan song. The 1993 card quality went way downhill, and by the spring of 1994 they were bankrupt. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ Luckily the Browns uniforms stayed the same in the switches over to Reebok and then Nike. ” -jlaz10

“ Great player. Should be in the HOF ” -titanup74

“ I like this card. It is simple and doesn't try to be flashy. I always liked Clay Sr. I thought he was very underrated. ” -jupiterhill

Set: 1990 Donruss (Rate)

Card: #50 Jeff Treadway

“ Oh, those colorful 1990s sets.. i bought a ton of those things, back when cards were seemingly a dime a dozen... those cards still are, actually.. An error-riddled set, that red one was... ” -lyfestory

“ This is the year that I began tossing out worthless overproduced cards. Despite that, Treadway was a very reliable player. Again the backs of Donruss are terrible. ” -NJDevils

“ I remember these. Very much towards the end of my youth collecting days. ” -koloth42

“ You can tell by the way his name is written, and how it's placed, right when this is from. Personally I feel that the peak of card designs started in 1991, and lasted through 1997, but that's my opinion only. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ The Braves uniforms used to have vertical names on the back, but they have reverted to the common radial arch. ” -jlaz10

Set: 2002 Grandstand Vermont Expos (Rate)

Card: #4 Larry Broadway

“ Larry Broadway here is too cool for school. And baseball. And uniform logo colours that don't sear the eyes. ” -Luckynumber78

“ Once again, a minor league/promo issue has a better design than many mainstream issues. I remember seeing TV ads for them while in Lake George NY, my favorite place in the world. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ There's a made-for-TV pose, but obviously not bound for the MLB.. pretty basic & clean design, backs are not so great.. ” -lyfestory

“ They say the neon lights are bright.... ” -PlayerPCCollector

“ The last team to have been called the Expos ” -eyoung11

“ Nice design. The ad is a *little* intrusive, but not ridiculous. Backs are well-done. For a low-level minor league card set, this is *very* nice. ” -vrooomed

“ This is not real. This can't be real. Broadway refers to the sparkly Expos lettering on his chest, right? ” -marcbrubaker

“ Needs a border but not bad for a Minor League card. ” -koloth42

Set: 2010-11 Upper Deck (Rate)

Card: #137 Loui Eriksson

“ This is a nice looking set .Here,s hoping he does well with Boston. ” -uncaian

“ Nice action shot. My first reaction was that Eriksson was either trying to see how far he could bend his stick or was stringing a long bow. Random I know but that is how the image hit me. ” -koloth42

“ Great design. UD really got better as time went on, with better photos and better card designs (for the most part) ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I love the way the photography caught the stick bending on his shot. ” -duaned99

“ Good, clean design and a nice action shot.. Should hockey cards be anything else? ” -lyfestory

“ Love the way it shows the torque on the stick in this photo. Plus, Loui is one of the bright spots for the Stars. Nice use of the horizontal format. ” -vrooomed

“ I sure hope he isn't shooting the puck. The way his body and arms are positioned he is gonna break something. ” -biggiofn7

“ The Stars new uniforms are a lot better than these, their old ones, but still are missing gold. ” -jlaz10

“ Boooorrrring. Nice photo, but these late UD designs leave much to be desired and feel cheap. ” -marcbrubaker

“ This is a REALLY nice design. The clean artistry of the photograph jells nicely with the classy lettering and small headshot. I don't collect much hockey, but I may need to find a pack or two of this. ” -Luckynumber78
