Set: 1994 Topps (Rate)

Card: #677 Eddie Guardado

“ Topps sure did go all out for this shot ” -Young Kilo

“ It's funny how, after ignoring most of the major sports cards that didn't interest me, now from being on the Database every day I am starting to recognize sets so much that I don't even need to read the info about it to see what set it's from. I think that's pretty cool. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ This was always one of my favorite designs Topps had during the 90's. Too bad it was overproduced. ” -bigsmooth

“ Some more Twins love! Gotta pay respects to one of the best closers in team history ” -Hollywood42

“ The Twins old road grays should have gotten a lot more respect than they did. It takes a lot to look good in pinstripes, nevermind in gray? ” -jlaz10

Set: 1991 Topps - Desert Shield (Rate)

Card: #117 Dion James

“ Ahh, Topps and their fascination with Desert Storm. Not sure what this has to do with the Gulf War, but that doesn't seem to matter to Topps, lol. On that note, I'm one card short of the three combined sets they did documenting the war...which is extra annoying because I bought a box and got as many as 4 copies of some of the cards, but none of the one missing one... ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Was this a real Indians player, or one from the movie "Major League"? ” -wamk

“ The old pullover BP jerseys don't actually look as bad as they sound. ” -jlaz10

“ Damn Desert Sheild...gotta not get me some of these...Dion looks like he just found out he could have saved a crap load of money if he had switched to Geico... ” -SaveDaKid

“ The stats on the back include "Fowl Balls". ” -UNC_Samurai

Set: 1973-74 O-Pee-Chee (Rate)

Card: #50 Bobby Clarke

“ Cool card design! Early for a color border too, basketball didn't get colored borders at all during the classic Topps run. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Takes me back to the days when hockey was a lot more physical and exciting. ” -biggiofn7

“ If there was ever a card design that screamed "70's!!", this is it! ” -wamk

“ The old Flyers and Blues jerseys were classics. It's great the Flyers brought them back, but the Blues need to reconsider. ” -jlaz10

“ One of my favourite sets of all time & one of the feircest ,toughest leaders of all time.I love the "action" cards ” -uncaian

“ Ahh the good old days when helmets were not worn. Back when they had the wind flowing through their flow. ” -eyoung11

Set: 1981 Donruss (Rate)

Card: #29 John Mayberry

“ Great card design! He doesn't look all that happy, though! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ From the set that brought you such greats as Bob Riverdale, Eric Hooterville, and Mike Metropolis. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ I didn't know that his dad played for the Jays? ” -eyoung11

“ The blue jays light blue roads were beautiful. More teams should bring this back. ” -jlaz10

Set: 2006 Topps Turkey Red (Rate)

Card: #357 Chris Shelton

“ Turkey is best with cracked pepper edges and on a sandwich with Provolone and chicken...at least in my book :) These cards didn't do much for me. The faux-blurry really hurt them. At one time I believed that a pack of the basketball issue was going to be my final pack of NBA basketball cards...it was, from 2006-10, but I'm back into it now. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Really? This is the best quality scan we can get? This looks like an albino Smurf brandishing a rifle. ” -Luckynumber78

“ Apparently the card scanning policy now allows oil-on-canvas reproductions. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ Why? ” -Colts12

“ Looks old. Can't even read what it says up the top ” -eyoung11

“ This set is a turkey alright. ” -NJDevils

“ The Tigers home whites are arguably the most distinguishable in sports, other than the Yankees pinstripes and Red Sox piping. ” -jlaz10

Set: 1986 O-Pee-Chee (Rate)

Card: #34 Dave Righetti

“ Sadly, the Orangutan-arm was never to quite achieve the popularity of the side-arm delivery. ” -Luckynumber78

“ Ah, pinstripes. ” -jlaz10

“ I think O-Pee-Chee should have stuck to hockey cards ” -eyoung11

Set: 1968 Bazooka (Rate)

Card: #42 Tony Perez

“ This is what happens when you don't heed the advice "Don't hide in trash/junk car compactors!" ” -Billy Kingsley

“ First time I have seen this set. I stopped collecting in '67. Wish I had kept it up another year. ” -NJDevils

“ These cards have most of the scene cut off but there are a lot of nice cards in the set. I don't have any but plan on getting some. ” -biggiofn7

“ Nice cropping. ” -bigsmooth

“ A little known fact about these Reds unis is that the player name on the back was located underneath the number. ” -jlaz10

“ Broad Street Bullies! ” -krondorff

Set: 2002 Fleer Greats of the Game (Rate)

Card: #8 Harmon Killebrew

“ Looking at the set list, this is an actual set of the "Greats of the Game." As opposed to the football sets, which contain such "greats" as Trung Candidate, Tatum Bell, Keary Colbert. Protip, Fleer: These sets are awesome as long as you don't dilute them with rookies. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ Nice. A HOF that suited up as an Indianapolis Indians during his baseball carreer. Sort of a fun card to see. ” -koloth42

“ We get it. Your a baseball card. Don't need the bat and ball at the bottom. I wont mistake you for a football card the guy is too skinny. ” -Dixxy

“ Man, time machines are really wonky sometimes. ” -Luckynumber78

“ Ah the Washington Senators. I would have loved to see the Nationals be called the Senators ” -eyoung11

“ The old Senators uniforms were actually pretty good-looking. The Nationals should try to recreate them. ” -jlaz10

“ He looks added on with the black and white background. This design doesn't do much for me. ” -biggiofn7

Set: 2011 Topps (Rate)

Card: #145 Freddie Freeman

“ Got him on my Fantasy team. Keep on hitting Freddie ” -Young Kilo

“ Just waiting for Chipper to retire...my arm is wasted at 1st base. ” -Joebing

“ Nice to see Freddie having a good year. Especially since I have him in a Fantasy Baseball league. ” -koloth42

“ Definitely a blurry scan. 2011 Topps looked better than this ” -Hollywood42

“ I like the clean and simple design of this Topps set. ” -suomibear8

“ I like this design. I wish Topps didn't use this same design later for the football though. ” -Colts12

“ The Braves uniforms (minus the navy road alternate) are a classic set full of piping. ” -jlaz10

“ Good Form for a great player in Freeman. The look of determination too ” -eyoung11

“ I like the way Topps notates it is a rookie card right on the front. For years some cards were hard to tell if it was a rookie, but that takes some of the guess work out of the decision. ” -biggiofn7

Set: 1995 Stadium Club (Rate)

Card: #351 Joe Orsulak

“ Never seen that batting stance before. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ I always wondered if this guy was really that talented, sorry Joe...side note, for some reason I absolutely hate the TSC logo... ” -SaveDaKid

“ That Mets logo is really clobbering his ankles, here. ” -Luckynumber78

“ You can't even see the "J" in Joe ” -eyoung11

“ I never really liked this Mets wordmark. The tail underneath seems a bit of a stretch. ” -jlaz10

“ I swear if he catches that ball I will hit him with this bat. ” -biggiofn7
