Set: 2000 UD Ionix - Shockwave (Rate)

Card: #S10 Mo Vaughn



“ I feel a shockwave in my stomach just looking at this ” -sascards67

“ Another card where the company decided to throw whatever graphic crap they could and see what stuck.. ” -Mike67

“ OK, boys! Get all lathered up and fire away with all the snappy comments on how ridiculous this card's design is. Believe it or not, there was a time when card manufacturers tried to appeal to kids, not just recycle designs from 50 years ago. ” -PlayerPCCollector

“ UD Ionix was an interesting idea to make cards look more futuristic but I think more fans enjoy the "classic" look to cards. ” -carthage44

“ 7H15 Þ351GN 5µ©K5 ” -koloth42

“ They just don't come any worse. ” -NJDevils

“ No matter what they did with the inserts, the Ionix inserts always looked very similar to the base cards. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I think a common theme for late 90s/early 00s UD inserts is that they all have way to much going on ” -Hollywood42

“ Because Shockwave is really spelled 5HO[KW6A3. ” -jlaz10

“ This card is a little too busy. All the words and background take away from the image. ” -biggiofn7

Card: #69 Bo Jackson



“ Bo knows baseball card royalties. ” -koloth42

“ I like this card except for the giant square they put the set logo in.. ” -Mike67

“ I never understood e-topps. ” -sascards67

“ Bo was so good he looked airbrushed in real life. ” -Brandon

“ It was a good idea, but something was lost in translation from the drawing board to this. ” -jlaz10

“ Bo knows big yellow boxes ” -titanup74

“ Bo knows? Bo knows!! ” -cynicalbuddha

“ I just DVR'd the Bo Jackson 30 for 30 documentary a few days ago. Looking forward to it! ” -DanD

Set: 1982 Donruss (Rate)

Card: #537 Derrel Thomas



“ Not a bad design for an early 80's card. You got a big action photo shot with a ball and bat that gives you the players name, team and position. Plus, you get the brand and year right on the front of the card. What more do you need? ” -carthage44

“ The bat-and-ball design is a classic. ” -jlaz10

“ No steroids working here, that's for sure. Derrel looks like he should be playing for the local high school, not the Los Angeles Dodgers. ” -PlayerPCCollector

“ anyone here older than 30?...anyone here interested in the 50's cards?.......bryan ” -colchester47

Set: 2008 Donruss Threads (Rate)

Card: #138 Tony Romo



“ I like the logos in the upper corners but what is going on with that blurry image in the background? ” -carthage44

“ Dallas will never win with Romo at QB ” -Young Kilo

“ This design is too modern to be a Donruss card! ” -jlaz10

“ An underwhelming card of an underwhelming QB. As a lifelong Cowboys fan (and I am old), I would rather see a card of Clint Longley. ” -NJDevils

“ Always have liked the design of 2008 Donruss Threads, from any sport. Looks really nice ” -Hollywood42

“ Please don't hit me, Please don't hit me, Please don't hit me!!! ” -biggiofn7

Set: 1986 Donruss (Rate)

Card: #172 Roger Clemens



“ Loved the Mid 80's baseball cards. I am a little biased because that is when I started collecting so when I see these cards it gives me wonderful flashbacks. ” -carthage44

“ The blue stripe background is interesting, but the tilted picture doesn't work for me. I find myself turning my head to make it appear squared off. I have OCD! :) ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Pre-roid Clemens with his pencil neck.... ” -suomibear8

“ A decent card by Donruss. Never like the backs with the 'recent major league history'. ” -NJDevils

“ Another Clemens? Still say he ain't a hero ” -Hollywood42

“ The diagonal picture in this set and ample space above the brand name and underneath the player name give this card an odd look. Nonetheless, a great set. ” -jlaz10

“ Once one of the most sought after cards, now many dont want it because of cheating. Wonder at what point of his career he started cheating. He is still one of my favorite pitchers even with roids. ” -biggiofn7

Set: 2002 Upper Deck Prospect Premieres - Heroes of Baseball Joe Morgan (Rate)

Card: #HJM5 Joe Morgan



“ Never heard of the cards and now I see why. ” -carthage44

“ Reprinting legends of the game is getting a bit over done. Do kids today even know who Joe Morgan was in baseball? ” -koloth42

“ This is from the time when UD started to be less about documenting the game, and more about the gimmick of the week. Although I don't collect baseball, that's how it was in NBA, and the design of this card certainly seems to match that aspect. Being at the start of that era though it doesn't really suffer any from it. However, it's not a bad card design at all and if I collected baseball I would have been trying to complete the insert set as I always enjoyed Legends based sets. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Never liked these 'heroes' series. Not a pretty card either. I just hope Joe can jump through the time portal before it closes. ” -NJDevils

“ And this is why Upper Deck doesn't make baseball cards anymore. ” -jlaz10

Set: 1999 Pacific Paramount (Rate)

Card: #93 Brett Favre



“ So is the the base card, the silver parallel, the silver rain parallel, the silver foil parallel, the silver silver parallel, or the not quite as silver as the base parallel? I mean we are talking late '90's Pacific here. ” -sascards67

“ Who cut the Favre? ” -carthage44

“ To sum it up in John Madden style BRETT FARVE ” -addysdaddy

“ First year using the white card stock, I liked the old look better... ” -mhawk

“ I like him better in a Vikings jersey ” -Hollywood42

“ All I see on the bottom is Brett Fame. Maybe they could have taken the time to space out the letters? ” -jlaz10

Set: 1984-89 O'Connell and Son Ink (Rate)

Card: #49 Bobby Shantz



“ I just puked in my mouth a little bit after seeing this card. ” -carthage44

“ And this is why MLB and MLBPA stopped licensing businesses like these to make cards. ” -jlaz10

“ Was there a purpose to this card? I hate these cards of guys who retired over 20 years before the card issue. ” -NJDevils

Set: 1991 Nobody Beats the Wiz New York Mets (Rate)

Card: #47 Ed Bouchee



“ No comment. Just no comment ” -Young Kilo

“ Every Mets player to that point is featured in the 1991 Nobody Beats the Wiz set, which was issued in perforated sheets at a couple of different games during the 1991 season. The Orioles did a similar set, sponsored by Crown Oil, but were sued by one of the players featured for royalties stemming from use of his likeness. Oops. ” -PlayerPCCollector

“ Is this card from Seinfeld? ” -carthage44

“ He also looks disgusted by this card design ” -Hollywood42

“ Something goes wrong when you combine Broadway musicals with the Mets. ” -jlaz10

“ It's like 4 different blind designers got together and decided on this layout. ” -sascards67

Set: 1988 Pacific Eight Men Out (Rate)

Card: #20 C'mon Betsy



“ I worked with a guy who was in this movie. At the very beginning, you can see him running down the first base line, trying to beat out a throw. He also helped many of the actors learn how to play baseball like a pro. What made him so qualified to do this? His dad is/was Ron Santo! Much later on, Jeff (the guy I worked with) wound up filming a documentary of his Dad called "This Old Cub". If you haven't seen it, I highly recommend it.. ” -wamk

“ Shoeless Joe with a clean uniform? Yeah right! ” -suomibear8

“ Jersey and card design make this card look a lot older than it really is ” -Hollywood42

“ Of course Pacific made cards for a movie. ” -jlaz10

“ Why bother? ” -NJDevils

“ Ha makes me laugh I DO NOT like that card. C'moan Betsy ” -Colts12
