Random Card of the Day

Set: 1991 Pacific (Rate)

Card: #42 Cap Boso

“ The Pacific logo reminds me of a delta-wing jet fighter of the 1950s, with a rounded tail fin. (That's a plus!) ” -Billy Kingsley

“ This is not the Boso I remember from WGN. Also, this set was a disaster. The diagonal backs were annoying and the spelling and formatting error are rampant. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ Nothing screams 90s like drop-shadow letters. ” -jlaz10

Set: 1991 Pro Set (Rate)

Card: #594 Steve Walsh

“ Looks like kid in a holloween costume ” -Young Kilo

“ One thing I've never figured out about football is the total lack of team name or city location on the jerseys. I admit I have not thought about it much, but it's always struck me as odd. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ You gotta love former Vikings GM Mike Lynn. Jimmy Johnson wasn't sure about Aikman, so he drafts Walsh in the supplemental draft. This guy right here, to the left, cost them the #1 overall pick in the 1990 draft, and because Johnson had the Vikings pick, they STILL got the best player in the draft. Meanwhile, two years later Walsh is a full-fledged journeyman on his way to playing for six teams in ten seasons. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ A good point against the stereotype that all NFL QB's are white. ” -jlaz10

Set: 1992-93 Ultra (Rate)

Card: #324 Brian Bellows

“ I have always liked this Ultra design...I have plenty of the NBA version, cool to see it was used for NHL as well. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I sometimes find myself looking at the board adverts on hockey cards. In this case Gulf and Snapple it looks like. Anyways, Bellows was a very good player and I always liked the Ultra cards, even though they seemed harder to find in my area than Upper Deck packs. ” -Gunny

“ The only thing I didn't like about these cards(and not just them) was no bios on the backs,however, having said that nice design overall. ” -uncaian

“ It's ashame Fleer got bought out by Upper Deck a couple years back. It was such a good brand. ” -jlaz10

“ His pose, obviously not natural, looks extremely odd ” -Hollywood42

“ Takes me back to '93 Hockey on Sega...OHHHH CANADA ” -SaveDaKid

“ Fleer Ultra really got creative in 1992 didn't that? (sarcasm) ” -bigsmooth

“ I'm sure that the Bruins are still kicking themselves for not drafting this guy instead of Gord Kluzak. ” -rmitchell6700

Set: 2002 Fleer WWF All Access (Rate)

Card: #9 Chris Jericho

“ Y2J in his first go in WWE.. Interesting how both his father and he have a career that involved arenas.. (Ted Irvine) ” -Mike67

“ I think that's going to end painfully. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Not the best photo for an "All Access" card... ” -SSG Temple

“ One of this worlds most pointless, money grabbing, fantasy tv series yet! If only I had been born much sooner, I could have made it big with a few friends, a trampoline, and a fake fight wearing spandex. Makes you wonder, did they stage the shot, or was it completely fluke? ” -Dixxy

“ A strong competitor for the "Worst Card" contest ” -Hollywood42

“ I believe I can fly! ” -jlaz10

“ dam banana peels! ” -tonym

“ To all you wrestling fans out there, WHY? Isn't this what paved the way for Road Rules & all other fake "reality" stuff. Tear, I used to love you until 1993. ” -SaveDaKid

“ "Hey, Chris, do your Owen Hart impersonation!" ” -UNC_Samurai

Set: 2006 Inkworks The 4400 Season 1 (Rate)

Card: #36 Hands That Heal

“ I never even heard of this show until I read about the trading card set. Although most of the time when my TV is on it's either on one of the history channels, the Military Channel, or one of the sports channels, so I guess that's not all that surprising. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Wait, someone made a TV show about Marlins' season ticket holders? ” -UNC_Samurai

“ WHAT??? Was this another medical tv show or movie? ” -carthage44

“ Disturbing. ” -koloth42

“ next... ” -SSG Temple

“ Almost kinda spooky. ” -Colts12

“ The what? ” -cynicalbuddha

“ :( ” -jlaz10

“ Exactly how I feel about this card. ” -NJDevils

“ We told him he could save a lot of money by switching his car insurance to GEICO, unfortunately he passed out, coma style... ” -SaveDaKid

Set: 1999 Pacific Aurora (Rate)

Card: #47 Brian Griese

“ Interesting background. I bet it looks better in person than in a scan, as is usual with foil and special effects. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Looks like Griese is going into the Twilight Zone. ” -carthage44

“ Welcome to the twilight zone... ” -duaned99

“ They told me I could be anything I wanted...so I became a fraud. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ Bleeeehhhhhhhhhh ” -Hollywood42

“ Good design, except for the background. ” -jlaz10

“ I never understand any of these psychedelic background cards. ” -deporcoruña

“ Is Pacific trying to trip me out, man? ” -Dixxy

“ "ARWOC" Another Ridiculous Waste of a Card. Looks like he has a Seahawks hat on, a bills uni on, and a Broncos logo....kind of a spooky Halloween background.... ” -flcardtrader

“ Eww. This one is just painful to look at. ” -koloth42

Set: 2011-12 O-Pee-Chee (Rate)

Card: #288 Mike Ribeiro

“ I don't collect hockey cards but from what I have seen they do a nice job with their card desgins. ” -carthage44

“ I like how O-Pee-Chee felt the need to remind us with a tiny band of lettering that this is a hockey card. And here I was worried this was just a publicity shot for Alfonso's really pale cousin. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ Can someone please explain to me the deal with O-Pee-Chee and Topps, please? I knew at one time but can't remember any more. The card design is interesting, I like it. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ When ever I see an O-Pee-Chee card, I pictured a robust woman yelling out her window for her child, OOOOO PEEECHHEEE, time for dinner... Also why is his position C/C (center/center)? ” -SaveDaKid

“ I really like this design, except for the fact that most of the bottom is made up of the O-Pee-Chee logo. ” -jlaz10

Set: 1992-93 Stadium Club (Rate)

Card: #86 Dmitri Khristich

“ Stadium club always did a nice job with their action shots. ” -carthage44

“ Good photography here. Naturally, being Stadium Club... I always like seeing when the card companies use the same design with minor variations in a given year across all it's sports covered. I only collect two of them but I've seen the others posted here on the Database, and at card shows back in the day (I really miss them) ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Great design! Big image, small text and logo, the emphasis is on the player. Great action shot, too! ” -wamk

“ I always liked the way Khristich played. As far as the card goes I like the fact that the usual statistics found on the back of the card are replaced with some sort of ranking on the player's skills. ” -Gunny

“ The single coolest thing about the '91 Stadium Club line across all four sports was the picture of the rookie card on the back. Great supplemental resource when Beckett Monthly's price guide got too crowded to include older cards. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ Holy mackeral a hockey card !!!! I liked the first 2 runs Stadium club but after that, mehhh. ” -uncaian

“ The old Caps uniform design was a beaut. Good thing they brought it back as a third. ” -jlaz10

“ I like these sets because they showed their rookie cards on the back. I also hated it for the same reason. The "rookie card" was just their first Topps issued cards, so they usually had their proper rookie card for O-pee-chee or another brand. ” -DanD

Set: 1974 Topps Traded (Rate)

Card: #59T Ross Grimsley

“ Hmm....Overkill, anyone? There's no way to miss the fact that he was traded. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I got the feeling he got traded ” -Young Kilo

“ Traded from where? ” -carthage44

“ One of the first cards I bought when I was little. AHH, the memories. ” -deporcoruña

“ The Topps Airbrush Follies of 1974! Why else would a Baltimore Orioles player appear at Veterans Stadium in Philadelphia before interleague play began? ” -PlayerPCCollector

“ Looks like a prison photo. ” -goldeneye

“ Hmmm... I wonder if ol' Ross has been traded? ” -SSG Temple

“ I'm not completely sure, but I think Grimsley got traded.. ” -wamk

“ I always found it funny when Topps tried to make the airbrushed caps look real when it was blatantly obvious they were fake. ” -jlaz10

“ Traded sets always frustrate me ” -Hollywood42

“ PITCHER'S GONE WILD!!! SPRING BREAK GRAPEFRUIT LEAGUE STYLE!!! I'm 24, from Topeka, Kansas, and I love walking backwards throw a cornfield... ” -SaveDaKid

“ Yikes that's some terrible airbrushing. ” -cynicalbuddha

Set: 1989 Score (Rate)

Card: #454 Tim Birtsas

“ The pullover jerseys with sansabelt pants was never a good look. Liking the stirrups though. When I was a kid I liked this set because of how colorful it is and because of the large photo on the card back. ” -duaned99

“ Good design on this card. Name font looks like something that would have been used about a decade later, but that's not a bad thing. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ There is nothing that will ruin a pitcher's card as much as a photo taken at the most awkward moment possible in his throwing motion. It looks like he's got his hand in the pocket and he's changing direction in mid-delivery. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ Biggest claim to fame? Getting traded for Rickey Henderson. Obviously not straight up. But people don't need to know details ” -Young Kilo

“ Not bad for an early Score design. Nice action photo with a decent border design that doesn't detract from the player. ” -koloth42

“ Score always used a lot of colors in their sets, just like 88 and 90. ” -suomibear8

“ Oh 1989 score, how I wished I would have never see you again. ” -carthage44

“ Although the Score brand only existed for a few years, Score designs were a lot better than today's crap. ” -jlaz10
