Set: 1993-94 O-Pee-Chee Premier (Rate)

Card: #100 Theo Fleury

“ Is there any 1990s design that doesn't look good? I don't think I've seen any! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ One of hockey's "best little big men" ,this was a nice set too. ” -uncaian

“ A man who looks like he's wearing a European motorcycle cop's helmet and is dancing with a cane like Fred Astaire plus a logo that looks like a large cheese wedge! What's not to love? ” -revnorb

“ Photo taken seconds after learning he was named after Theo Huxtable. ” -NJDevils

“ Couldn't they have taken the picture after he had finished dressing?? ” -yokonashiwa

“ The Flames have never looked better than their original red and gold. Black is a little too much ” -jlaz10

“ This is odd ” -Hollywood42

“ As a fellow little guy, I admire players like Fleury and Martin St. Louis and their ability to succeed in a sport dominated by men with much bigger frames. ” -DanD

Set: 1978 TCMA Tidewater Tides (Rate)

Card: #19 Marty Perez

“ Tidewater Tides...that's not very creative. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I love the big ol' photo with the tower-thing in the background, it reminds me of that 1960's Joe Kapp photo that wound up on about five different NFL and CFL cards in the 60's; the first year they ran it it had a similar structure in the background and they just kept airbrushing more and more of the background out as they reused the picture year after year. ” -revnorb

“ Loved him on the TV show "CHiPS".. ” -wamk

“ I like the simplicity of the cap. A simple orange T on blue ” -jlaz10

“ Looks like "Be On Your Own Baseball Card Night" in Tidewater again! ” -DaClyde

Set: 2004 Bowman Chrome Draft Picks & Prospects (Rate)

Card: #BDP14 Zack Greinke

“ A young Zack Greinke. Nice posed picture. His autograph looks like it reads Jil Quiche. Great looking card. ” -yokonashiwa

“ Chromes just don't scan very well.. One thing i don't like is how they warp unless they are kept tight in a box, and even then they can stick together.. Always enjoyed the Chrome line, but their production needs work.. ” -lyfestory

“ Why do they insist on the fake autographs? (At least, I think it's fake, if not, I'll shut up...) ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I never liked the black Royals hats. It never seemed to fit their color scheme. ” -jupiterhill

“ the black border cards take away from the pic, in my opinion. I'd also like to see the players' names take precedence over the brand name, unlike this offering ” -SSG Temple

“ Greinke was a punk then as he still is one now! ” -PDIZZLE

“ Geez, looks like something you would see next to a casket. More fitting for an Abe Lincoln card. ” -NJDevils

“ I like his menacing look on the back photo. It reminds me of the bagger at the grocery store last night when I told him I didn't need any help carrying my bags to the car. ” -jackal726

“ Chrome cards - Tough to scan but nice in hand. Wouldn't mind if this was in my collection, but sadly, it's not. ” -vrooomed

“ Greinke and Kershaw. Baseball's best right hander and left hander ” -Young Kilo

“ They're the Royals, not the Blacks. Wear blue, for goodness sake. ” -jlaz10

Set: 1998-99 UD Choice - Prime Choice Reserve (Rate)

Card: #184 Pierre Turgeon

“ I really like when companies use the same designs for all their sports in the same year. This is either a level 2 or 3 parallel, but it's done differently than the NBA version of same, which did not have words going up and down in the background. At least, if it's a level 2 parallel, I don't remember if the NBA had a level 3; if they did, I never got any. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ This card just looks like a kid scrawled all over it. Interesting to see a design I remember from baseball transferred over to hockey, though. ” -Luckynumber78

“ A big reason why I don't care for parallel sets is ones with little effort like this. ” -DanD

“ Decent front, again would be nice to have the team logo. Oh, and remove the ghost "choice reserve" from the front. It detracts. Back would be better with a larger number for us old guys. ” -NJDevils

“ This was a nice looking & affordable set for collectors.Turgeon is one of the best. ” -uncaian

“ They have the logo on the back, why not the front? OK action, at least he isn't just standing there with his stick in his hand. ” -SSG Temple

“ Nice set, nothing great about it. This particular parallel was a bit lame back then and is even more now. At least they were serial numbered. ” -vrooomed

“ I know it's a parallel, but that watermark text on the card is annoying ” -Hollywood42

“ The Blues looked best in simple blue and gold. No red, no navy, just royal blue and gold. ” -jlaz10

Set: 1993 Topps - Inaugural Marlins (Rate)

Card: #660 Alan Trammell

“ Put him in the HOF! ” -jupiterhill

“ Slaps forehead for mis-spelling Chrome as Chroma on the card that came up today. This card seems somewhat strange, as it appears to me that Topps stamped a player who played for a different team with the new team's logo? Granted, I don't know much about baseball, but I find that strange. Maybe he was taken in the Expansion draft I'm sure they must have held, and that just isn't reflected on his team listing on this card? I don't know, but like I say, it may just be my general lack of knowledge when it comes to anything not NASCAR or basketball. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ great player, not-so-great Topps set... but at least they had the colors pretty accurate for the team... ” -lyfestory

“ Interesting Tigers uni. Must have been a BP jersey, because that never made the field. ” -jlaz10

“ If you are going to make the photograph a portrait, don't make the card a landscape. Leave the landscape for action shots....or team photos. ” -NJDevils

“ Didn't even know this set existed. ” -volbox

“ I... Don't understand... A card in an Inaugural Marlins set that isn't a Marlin.. Why?? ” -Mike67

Set: 1972-73 O-Pee-Chee (Rate)

Card: #299 Chris Bordeleau

“ I like this card, everything except the team name, which looks kinda cheesy. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Hockey... there's always a home for you ugly white guys! ” -SSG Temple

“ The Dom Casual typeface was strictly rationed in Manitoba. However, periods were in ample supply! ” -revnorb

“ I have cards for you ” -Jason

“ I know I have some "vintage" cards from this era (maybe even some hockey)...I'm sure my cards won't be in the great shape this card appears to be! Classic! I don't speak/read French, but I love the O-Pee-Chee line with the International flavor! ” -bkklaos

“ One of my favorite set designs. The 1972-73 O-Pee-Chee, as shown here, also contained players from the upstart World Hockey Association. O-Pee-Chee hockey sets were always bigger than there Topps counterparts, that always bothered me because O-Pee-Chee were much harder for me to obtain as a kid. ” -Gunny

“ This set had some of the best action shots and worst haircuts.I love this set ,definately one of my faves. ” -uncaian

“ Great Card! And I can put my high school French to good use. ” -NJDevils

“ The look on his face is just as silly as this card looks. ” -PDIZZLE

“ Reminds me of 1968 baseball. Nice set. ” -vrooomed

“ That is a rather interesting uniform. I don't know if the photo is off centre or not, but I do know that was a major issue with OPC.. ” -Mike67

“ Why the . after Chris? Is Chris short for something? ” -jackal726

“ When you think Winnipeg Jets, you think of their famous airjet logo, not this one. Nice sweater, though. ” -jlaz10

“ They never use these jerseys when doing throwbacks....I like it! ” -suomibear8

Set: 1984-85 Topps (Rate)

Card: #108 Pierre Larouche

“ I like the front, but not much of a fan of the back. ” -jupiterhill

“ Great card design. I always like seeing cards from 1984, the same year I was "issued". ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Lucky Pierre! I still remember those heady days early in his career when a local Pittsburgh radio station auctioned off a "Date with Pierre." He was, afterall, the local heart-throb for the ladies when the Penguins brought him into the club. ” -Gunny

“ Great player & this is a nice set.Yzerman & Barasso rookies!! ” -uncaian

“ The Rangers road blues were interesting that they read "New York" instead of the classic Rangers. ” -jlaz10

“ A great set. The back is just about perfect. ” -NJDevils

Set: 1981 Donruss Dallas (Rate)

Card: #23a Outdoor fears

“ I bet what they fear is seeing some of the comments from those who hate non-sports cards (for some unknown reason!) ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Damn. You know what? No comment. Just no comment ” -Young Kilo

“ LOL... The original Brokeback Mountain!!! ” -SSG Temple

“ The answer to the question "How bad can a card look when we are producing the set as quickly as possible to capitalize on the popularity of a TV show?".. ” -wamk

“ Okay then ” -jlaz10

“ Who killed J.R.? ” -CluelessJoe

“ this has to be the rarest set in the world because I can't imagine anyone buying these cards ” -NJDevils

“ not touching this one with a 10 foot pole..... ” -Flcardtrader

“ I admit I was but a wee lad when Dallas was on, but I sure don't remember it seeming this cozy... ” -jackal726

“ I'm not recalling these players? Tom Landry with his hat off & a young Jerry Jones? And what were these two doing? Looks like they just got caught spooning! ” -SaveDaKid

Set: 2006 Topps (Rate)

Card: #358 Jamie Moyer

“ Great design. It kind of reminds me of a 70s design, but 70s card designs were great so that is definitely a good thing. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Not calling Moyer old or anything. But word is he use to strike out Adam on a regular basis back in the day. In front of Eve ” -Young Kilo

“ Wasn't this the year he won the 'Julio Franco AARP Player-Member of the Year' award? ” -UNC_Samurai

“ If he could throw the knuckleball, he'd probably still be pitching. ” -DaClyde

“ There's something to be said for a guy like Moyer, who just pitches and pitches and pitches for years and years until the cleats get worn down and he's got to hang them up. ” -Luckynumber78

“ The color scheme on the front is awful. Hard to believe that the front is better than the back. I give this a "D-" ” -NJDevils

“ The Mariners uniforms are great, but would look better in their old blue and gold scheme. ” -jlaz10

“ Since I tend to have a soft spot for lefty pitchers, IU graduates, and the Cubbies, Moyer was one of my favorite pitchers to watch. Despite having a fastball that might not be fast enough to get a ticket in a school zone, and being overshadowed his rookie season by some guy named Maddux,he pitched in the major in 4 decades. ” -SYTopps

“ Pretty nice card design. Very nice person on it. ” -vrooomed

Set: 1960 Nu-Card Hi-Lites (Rate)

Card: #62 Aaron's Bat Beats Yankees In Series

“ Very interesting. The faux newspaper always looks good. I can honestly say I've never heard of this set...or brand, even...before right now. Just another reason to love the Database, learning new stuff! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Nice RCOTD - I had never heard of this set, probably because of the non-standard size. Looks like a real nice set to own. ” -vrooomed

“ Brings back memories! It was a different type of card back then. A set that looked like newspapers, date and all. It was rough collecting two different sets back then, money was scarce even if the packs were only a nickel and Topps had the "penny packs" too. ” -NJDevils

“ Oh, how much has changed in baseball cards. ” -jlaz10

“ Any day that the Yankees lose is automatically a good day ” -Hollywood42

“ Love the classics! What a great set! ” -flcardtrader
