Set: 2012 Topps Star Wars Galactic Files - Duels of Fate (Rate)

Card: #DF-10 Luke Skywalker vs. Darth Vader

“ How awesome is this? Today (October 18th) is my birthday, and one of my cards comes up as Card of the Day! And it's an insert from my favorite Star Wars set of all time! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ One of the greatest battles in the history of film.. ” -lyfestory

“ Just like the Father/Son baseball cards. ” -vrooomed

“ The one type of non-sport cards I am ok with for Card of the Day: Star Wars ” -Hollywood42

“ One of the most epic scenes from the movie destroyed by poor acting. If luke weren't so over dramatic, I'm sure this would have been much more. Still, the original series is far better than the new ones. Hope Disney does star wars justice with their endeavor to continue the saga. It would be just sad if they dumb down the story and butcher the script. Good luck and may the force be with you... ” -Dixxy

“ As sick as I am of seeing science fiction cards on card of the day, this is one of the cooler ones featured, so far. ” -Luckynumber78

“ Of all the cards out there, Star Wars appears a lot. ” -jlaz10

Set: 2000 Topps Traded & Rookies (Rate)

Card: #T112 Ryan Klesko

“ I don't care for this Ryan Klesko. I like the young Braves prospect version better. This one is just too disappointing. Like watching Todd Van Poppel pitch for Texas. ” -ray fosse's ghost

“ Traded and Rookies? This should have been series 2. I liked it a lot better in the 90s when there would be series II issues. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Does anyone else miss the days of the copyright line being "© T.C.G."? ” -vrooomed

“ Again, tough to differentiate the name from the bottom border. Topps has no idea of the meaning of the word "contrast". Back is very good. ” -NJDevils

“ The Padres will never look as good as the 80's brown and gold. ” -jlaz10

“ I liked the front design of this set, but hated the look of the back. ” -jupiterhill

Set: 2008-09 Upper Deck (Rate)

Card: #67 Danny Granger

“ Career already on the decline. But nice card ” -Young Kilo

“ The next to last Upper Deck set. Unusual in that it featured no border whatsoever. In fact, the only main UD issue with no border of any sort in basketball. It works for me but sometimes makes the name nearly disappear. Granger is a good player, one of the key players that had help the Pacers excel in recent years...if not for a bad coaching decision the Pacers likely would have beaten the Heat in the Eastern Conference Finals last year! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ So UD again plays "Hide the Name" on the front of the card. Nice back of card. Very readable. ” -NJDevils

“ Some cards the foil is just plain hard to read, as this card shows.. Nice overall cards, but the choice of foil overlays sometimes don't go too well.. ” -lyfestory

“ I was scared it would be a star trek card... ” -Dixxy

“ Simple UD design - nice front photo - clear reverse. Again, they really haven't changed their designs for what, about 15 years? ” -vrooomed

“ upper deck cards always look alike. ” -Colts12

“ Upper Deck can ALWAYS claim better photography. This facial expression is not their fault. ” -Luckynumber78

“ Woot! Home team here in Indiana. ” -koloth42

“ The Pacers current unis are nice, but not as nice as the Reggie Miller-era pinstripes. ” -jlaz10

Set: 1991 Foot Locker Slam Fest (Rate)

Card: #1 Ken Griffey Jr.

“ I bet Ken Griffey Jr. would laugh remembering when his hair looked like that... ” -ray fosse's ghost

“ I'm not sure why these are listed under Multi-sport, as they are a basketball issue...although the basketball event encompassed people from various other sports and I believe even non-sports as well. I only have one or two of the cards myself. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ This is as bad they come. ” -NJDevils

“ If you're making cards of a handsome, photogenic superstar, why use a picture like this? ” -Luckynumber78

“ Nice hair ” -jlaz10

“ "This hair, mhhmmm? You remember this hair. This hair will dominate." ” -marcbrubaker

“ What a priceless picture. If I was him, I'd make that my Christmas card. "You got me what?" ” -Dixxy

“ One word - cheap. ” -vrooomed

“ That haircut needs a shoe ” -volbox

“ Not a whole lot good to say about this card, but probably a relatively nice find for Griffey fans.. ” -lyfestory

Set: 1994 Classic Four Sport - Gold (Rate)

Card: #144 Cory Stillman

“ I never cared much for these multi-sport sets. I have not even catalogued the ones I have yet. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Why did anyone think multi-sport sets were a good idea? ” -vrooomed

“ Classis Four Sport was an interesting concept. Bought several packs. Nice back of card. ” -NJDevils

“ Great player.This was a good "minor league"set.I still get the odd one in variety packs. ” -uncaian

“ It's a shame the Flames ditched their their throwback alternate uniforms for this year. Their new one is nowhere close to being this good. ” -jlaz10

Set: 1961 Topps (Rate)

Card: #208 Larry Osborne

“ Great set!!!. My older brother bought this set new from Topps or from a dealer that year. My mother almost killed him as $15 was a lot of money back then. A smart investment for him. ” -NJDevils

“ One of the best Topps sets ever. ” -jlaz10

“ His right cheek looks like he is keeping a baseball in there ” -Hollywood42

“ Back of the card looks better than the 2013 set ” -volbox

“ I like this card. I would maybe make the team name a little bigger, but otherwise a very nice set. ” -jupiterhill

Set: 1995-96 Flair (Rate)

Card: #49 Clyde Drexler

“ A great player, and a great card set, a combination that can't be beat! At the time, Flair was the thickest card set released, with the 1994-95 and 1995-96 sets sharing the same extra thick cardboard, it would get progressivly thinner over time until it was regular card thickness. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Why the heck did they change their uniforms the following season? ” -DanD

“ The Rockets should throw back to these. ” -jlaz10

“ Flair had some nice cards in various sports. Just didnt catch on for some reason. My usual complaint on the back of card, how about numbers with some contrast. Make the numbers visible. ” -NJDevils

“ My head is spinning ” -Hollywood42

Set: 1996-97 Leaf Limited (Rate)

Card: #19 Todd Bertuzzi

“ Hockey collectors must be rejoicing, they are getting a lot of Card of the Days lately. This one surely looks better in person, mirror foil never scans well, although this is a good one as far as mirrors go. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ These cards always had surface issues. ” -suomibear8

“ I found this set all flash, no substance.Bertuzzi,unfortunately, will be more remembered for one REALLY BAD incident,instead of his pretty great career. ” -uncaian

“ Worst. Hockey. Uniform. EVER. ” -jlaz10

“ I can see why they limited it. Blah! ” -NJDevils

“ These all-foil cards were highly sensitive to scratching. The scan doesn't show this card very well - the edges were bright at the top, and the team logo is holographic. This is a VERY nice set. ” -vrooomed

Set: 2004 Donruss Classics (Rate)

Card: #136 Miguel Tejada

“ Hmmm.. A's uniform, Orioles logo on the bottom.. Yeah, that's not confusing.. ” -Mike67

“ Now you know how he became a "Classic" ” -volbox

“ too much border.. Never really could figure out which team to sort cards like this into, O's or A's... ” -lyfestory

“ I'm still not really a fan of the A's green alternate. It looks good on the road but is too dark for home. ” -jlaz10

“ The design is sharp, but the picture is awkward and clunky. The bright colours look strange and garish on the subtle background, plus there is no such thing as a traded player whose card looks good with one uniform and another team logo. ” -Luckynumber78

Set: 1994-95 O-Pee-Chee Premier (Rate)

Card: #282 Guy Carbonneau

“ Front design is great. Black border on the back, ugh! All in all, this is nice looking card. ” -vrooomed

“ This could be the most boring hockey card I've seen. No action, not a good portrait, blah. ” -marcbrubaker

“ Another great design on a mid 90s Hockey card. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ One of my all time favourite Canadiens.I like this set better than previous years,it's brighter & better looking. ” -uncaian

“ The front design is slick and minimal. It does everything right, and, while unoriginal, is a nice, solid design. The back is a mid-90s mess. ” -Luckynumber78

“ is it me or is the back of the card rough on the eyes? ” -NJDevils

“ I didn't really like these Blues uniforms because the crest has a small "St. Louis" in the top. Seems a little unnecessary. ” -jlaz10

“ I am sorry for the Star Trek cards!!! OK? SORRY!!! At least it's not Pokemon or Yu-Gi-Oh! cards... At least be thankful for that. (No, I will NOT add those. Someone else can do that.) Oh, HEEEeeeyyy... A Hockey Card!! I didn't know he played for the Blues... Always thought he stuck with Montreal. ” -Dixxy
