Set: 1991 Donruss (Rate)

Card: #407 Kevin Mitchell

“ A pre cursor of what was to come for the "juiced" age. ” -addysdaddy

“ Interesting background...very green. It doesn't get much more "Early 90s" than this (but that's a good thing) ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Nice thick sleeve striping. ” -jlaz10

“ Mitchell came to San Francisco in a trade involving at least six players, and a cat to be decapitated later. ” -UNC_Samurai

Set: 1997 Pinnacle (Rate)

Card: #43 Rafael Palmeiro

“ Wag that finger ” -Young Kilo

“ When his card comes up, the computer should play a sound - much like the default tone on Android phones that goes "Droid", except it should say "Roids". And now, he's got to be the highest HR hitter to get too few votes to stay on the HOF ballot. As for the design, I can finally see what's in the gold portion on the front. Nice scan. ” -vrooomed

“ Palmeiro was drafted in the 1st round (22nd overall) by the Chicago Cubs during the 1985 MLB Draft. He played from 1986-2005 with the Cubs, Rangers (two separate times) and Orioles (two separate times). Career stats: .288 Average, 3,020 hits, 569 Home runs and 1,835 RBI. He was a 4x All-Star, 3x Gold Glover and 2x Silver Slugger. Despite his lofty stats, he is not in the Hall of Fame because he has tested positive for steroids. Palmerio was eligible for the Hall of Fame in 2011 but only received 11% of the necessary 75% of the votes to get into the Hall. During the 2014 Hall voting, he received only 4.4% of the votes which now drops him off the ballot because he fell under 5%. ” -carthage44

“ I like the design, although I'm not sure why all those other names are on the bottom. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Another of the infamous HR forgerers. ” -NJdevils

“ He was never on this baseball card. Period! ” -UNC_Samurai

“ I had almost forgotten how hard he held on to that mullet ” -jackal726

“ Steroids. ” -jlaz10

Set: 1969 Atlanta Braves 8x10 Photocards (Rate)

Card: #11 Larry Maxie

“ Maxie only appeared in two career games during the 1969 season with the Atlanta Braves. Career Stats: 0-0, 3.00 ERA, one walk, one hit by pitch, two wild pitches and one strikeout. He later became a scout for the Cubs, White Sox, Phillies and Blue Jays. ” -carthage44

“ I didn't know the Braves wore pinstripes. ” -duaned99

“ Dude played in two games. He couldn't even get the cup-of-coffee notoriety. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ I have no idea what this set is, or how it came about, but I wish the teams would do sets like this for promotions more often. I'd much rather have this than a BJ Upton bobble head. ” -jackal726

“ He looks blinded by the light of the Age of Aquarius. ” -revnorb

“ Braves pinstripes! ” -jlaz10

“ Without stats on the back, I really have no use for these. ” -NJDevils

Set: 2010 Score (Rate)

Card: #70 Josh Cribbs

“ Interesting design. Nice picture and clean. Like the fact that unlike some other cards, you know who the player being featured is because he is the only one on the card. I think this might be the first time I have ever seen a player's position as RS (Right Safety). Nice back. ” -yokonashiwa

“ Cribbs was undrafted in 2005 out of Kent State. He signed as an undrafted free agent with the Cleveland Browns. He played with the Browns from 2005-2012, spent preseason of 2013 with the Raiders but was cut before the season started but signed with the Jets in October of 2013. Career: 109 receptions, 1,167 yards, 12,755 return yards and 20 total touchdowns. He is a 3x Pro Bowler, 2x All-Pro, and holds 3 NFL records for most career kickoff returns for TDs (8, tied w/Leon Washington), two kickoff return TDs of 100 yards or more in a single game (tied w/Ted Ginn Jr.) and most kickoff return TDs in a single game (2, tied w/9 others). ” -carthage44

“ One word for this card design...Yuck ” -addysdaddy

“ I like the effort, but there just seems like a lot of wasted space here. Also, what the heck is RS, Return Specialist? That's a position now? I can't wait to see the next "3rd Down Back in Passing Situations" card! ” -jackal726

“ The photo is a nice shot, the card around it is pretty darn bad. "RS", return specialist? just a guess as I have never seen a card from this set before. "RS", really sloppy? ” -NJDevils

“ The Browns, the way they should be. ” -jlaz10

“ This card looks like somebody threw up. ” -switzr1

Set: 2012-13 Panini Megacracks (Rate)

Card: #188 Fabio Coentrao

“ The hair is ALIVE! ” -carthage44

“ Look at that hair ” -Young Kilo

“ I'm assuming Megacracks in Europe wouldn't have the same connotations as it might in the USA, with crack, of course, being a highly illegal drug. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Glad to see Rod Stewert's hairdo alive and well ” -jackal726

“ Good player. Mourinho used him everywhere he wasn't supposed to. He is best at left back or as left midfielder to take advantage of his speed. Unfortunately, Mourinho put him as central defender or defensive midfielder. He is one of those players that would accel on a second tier world class team (Valencia, Spurs, Dortmund, Benfica, PSG, Lazio for example), but he went for the big bucks and is now relegated to the bench on Madrid. ” -deporcoruña

“ Quite a difference between his headshot and action pictures. ” -jlaz10

“ Very unfortunate photo. He looks like a Megacrackhead. ” -UNC_Samurai

Set: 1986 Topps (Rate)

Card: #613 Roy Smalley

“ Roy Smalley III played from 1975 through 1987 with the Rangers, Twins (twice), Yankees and White Sox. Career: .257 average, 163 home runs and 694 RBI. He was named an All-Star in 1979 while with the Twins and won a World Series ring with the Twins in his final Major League season (1987). His father, Roy Smalley Jr. played in the Majors from 1948-1958 with the Cubs, Braves and Phillies. ” -carthage44

“ 1984: Yankees/White Sox? He was traded for Doug Drabek. So the trade involved a Cy Young winner for a clutch World Series Game 1 pinch-hitting double...just not with either team involved in the trade. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ Pretty decent set. Only problem was the off center cuts that were made. I have 100s of cards from this set that are so off center they are basically trash. Thanks Topps ” -addysdaddy

“ Reminds me of the poor term papers I handed in when I waited until the last minute. This designer must have done the same. ” -NJDevils

Set: 1986 ProCards Winston-Salem Spirits (Rate)

Card: #20 Jeff Pico

“ That may be the simplest card back I've ever seen. I hope this photo was not taken during a game, it must be very disheartening if nobody comes out to watch. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Simple and clean, can't ask for much more from a MiLB card ” -jackal726

“ Really weird pants stripes, especially for a Cubs affiliate. ” -jlaz10

“ Seems the only time I comment is on a minor league card. Great staged photo on the front. Like the simplicity of the card both front and back. We sure do get a lot of these minor league cards on RCOTD. ” -yokonashiwa

Set: 1998 Collector's Choice (Rate)

Card: #401 Mark Loretta

“ Great picture. I have always like the Collector's Choice sets from Upper Deck. Even the picture on the back is really well done. I like cards that tell a story. Edmonds most likely is safe while Cordova is tagged out. Would however like to know the base he played (likely 2nd), but instead of telling you it just says infield. That might be this cards only knock. ” -yokonashiwa

“ This looks more like a mid-90s design than late 90s, but it's a good design. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ For this being a "low end" card (i.e., inexpensive, aimed at kids), it's actually pretty nice. Great photography on this card and the layout/design is pretty solid. (Although, the CC logo could have been less on the front.) ” -vrooomed

Set: 2005 Topps eTopps (Rate)

Card: #55 Hideki Matsui

“ So, does this card actually exist, or is it digital only? ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I dont even know what an "etopp" card is. Don't want to know. ” -NJDevils

“ eTopps sure had some nice card designs. I'll take this over any of the recent Topps Finest concoctions of the past few years. ” -mkaz80

“ Oh eTopps... personally, I really liked the idea and enjoy the cards I have. Just another product that had potential and ultimately failed due to Topps shoddy customer service and the speculator market. ” -jackal726

“ I don't see a stat for "Adult Videos Owned." ” -UNC_Samurai

“ Better on the A's. ” -jlaz10

“ Concept was good, execution was terrible. ” -vrooomed

Card: #746 Jeff Shaw

“ Rookie prospect? Home boy looks 35. ” -Young Kilo

“ nothing like the 91 Score set to get us fired up! Wahoo, I'll take 100 of 'em. ” -flcardtrader

“ Scan seems very washed out. It appears Score started out with decent designs and then plummeted...because the design of this one is not bad at all. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I think I have a copy or 10 of this one. ” -Mike67

“ The lost art of writing flavor text for card backs. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ The Indians racing stripes remind me of Major League. ” -jlaz10
