Random Card of the Day

Friday, April 18, 2014

Set: 2009-10 O-Pee-Chee (Rate)

Card: #363 Derek Morris

“ I'm truly surprised that I have not gotten into major league hockey. I watch, or did when it was available, every other kind of hockey, and floor hockey when I was in school was the most fun to play- and the only sport I was ever actually good at. I wish I could play right now, although I can't physically do it anymore- but I digress. I think a part of the problem is that I can't keep track of the puck during the games. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Excellent front. Note to print shop foreman: check ink supply before running the backs. ” -NJdevils

“ This set had nice fronts but blah backs.I remember Morris from Calgary ,where he had a couple pretty good years ” -uncaian

“ What a beauty of a sweater. ” -jlaz10

“ Gotta love the Ranges.... ” -flcardtrader

Set: 1992 Impel U.S. Olympic Hopefuls (Rate)

Card: #64 Deena Wigger

“ Nice action photo. Cute gal with a nice smile. A little history she finished 9th overall at the 1988 Olympics and despite trying out for the Olympics in 1992 and 1996, she didn't make the team. She joined the Air Force in 1995 as a Medical Technician. ” -yokonashiwa

“ Go ahead. Do her wrong. See what happens ” -Young Kilo

“ There is nothing i can say that would be funnier and weirder than this card already is. ” -revnorb

“ Watching the Olympics was a big deal in our house when I was growing up. Unfortunately, it doesn't have the same appeal to me now as an adult. For that I'm sad! ” -bkklaos

“ No offense Deena, but I'd rather see one of Dixxy's Pokémon cards ” -jackal726

“ Target shooting is a fun sport to watch, but the cards are such a bore. Still, for a time when Topps was still trying to figure out full-color backs, these cards are of an impressive caliber. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ LOL...so many opportunities... so many ” -SSG Temple

“ I remember when this set came out. Everyone was so excited about the "Dream Team" cards, that the rest of the set was just an afterthought. ” -Bplay24

“ I bought a box of these and havn't opened any yet, as hard as that is to believe. It's more of a mental challenge to myself than anything else at this point, to see how long I can go without breaking into them. At least, I think it's this set! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ You'll shoot your eye out!! ” -DanD

“ Sick flow. ” -jlaz10

“ I wonder if she medaled? ” -vrooomed

Set: 1994-95 Topps (Rate)

Card: #324 Keith Askins

“ Not a fan of the way the name was on the front (they used the SAME design in other sports, boo!) and it's hard to read, even in person. At least it's in nice block lettering on the reverse. ” -vrooomed

“ Even Chris Gatling is giving the look of, "How did THIS guy get a card?" ” -UNC_Samurai

“ I never liked the font used for the names on the 1994-95 set. Shows up poorly in scans, too. (It's gold foil) ” -Billy Kingsley

“ The original Heat uniforms are so much better than their currents. The players, not so much. ” -jlaz10

Set: 2000 Topps Gold Label Class 1 (Rate)

Card: #95 Chris Wakeland

“ Did this guy even play half a season in the majors? ” -UNC_Samurai

“ Had to look him up and saw that he only played 10 games in the bigs. No wonder I didn't recognize the name. Surprised Topps would put a minor leaguer on a premium card like this. I was collecting hockey when Gold Label came out and I recall it being the top 3 or 4 from each team. Nice card for 10-game player. ” -vrooomed

“ I like this sharpness of the Gold Label design. Very thick base stock, but nice embossed logo. ” -suomibear8

“ I'd prefer a wake field over a wake land any day... ” -SaveDaKid

“ So one of those high-numbered guys that Topps uses to bulk up their sets. Was the back designed by Lowe's? ” -NJDevils

“ Love Topps Gold Label. Was only in the NBA for two years but both sets were nothing short of spectacular. I pulled my first 1 of 1 from the 1999-00 set. ” -Billy Kingsley

Set: 1990 Classic Yellow (Rate)

Card: #T45 Juan Samuel

“ I'm pretty sure that in junior high I had a pair of pants that looked just like this (well, just like the boarder, I don't think Juan Samuel was on them) ” -jackal726

“ Great guy - signed a ball for me in Spring Training in Vero Beach, FL. Loved him when he was in Philly. Told him we still missed him in Philly at that time. He said thanks. The card is... well, if you don't have anything nice to say... ” -vrooomed

“ I'm sorry, I can't hear everyone else's comments over this border. ” -UNC_Samurai


“ I like this card. I tend to like yellow borders. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Looks like a failed Lemonheads box redesign. ” -revnorb

“ Those are some white pants! ” -jlaz10

Set: 2013 Topps - Wal-Mart Blue Border (Rate)

Card: #109 Kirk Nieuwenhuis

“ If he stopped playing Twister maybe he could get the BA over .256 ” -NJDevils

“ Interesting, this card comes up to write about on the same day a card with a blue border is featured as Card of the Day. This one, however, is a parallel whereas the other is a base card. I like this kind of parallel. It's different enough to be easily noticeable, yet not really silly or bizzare, although the argument could be made that the entire concept of parallels is silly, I like them. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ What yoga position is this? ” -DaClyde

“ Another gimmick to give collectors the illusion of value when they buy packs at Wal-Mart. Of course, it makes it that much harder to collect a base set, but in this day and age, I guess, who's collecting the base set? ” -PlayerPCCollector

“ The Mets should have never, ever, ever used black. Ever. ” -jlaz10

Set: 1994 Classic Best West Palm Beach Expos (Rate)

Card: #21 Scott Pisciotta

“ Excellent card design and excellent scan! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ If I'm catching games in a similar local in retirement, things went as planned...one can only dream! ” -bkklaos

“ I enjoy the cookies that were named after this guy, when I have a cup of coffee. ” -wamk

“ WPB Expos played at Hank Aaron Field right off Palm Beach Lakes Blvd...right outside the stadium was the WPB Auditorium....saw the Grateful Dead there in 82 and Blue Oyster Cult/Ted Nugent there in 84....what used to be the stadium is a Target now...good times! ” -flcardtrader

Set: 2013 Topps MLS (Rate)

Card: #24 Brandon McDonald

“ It's like some kind of quiz where they challenge you to try and find the hidden player name, the hidden team name, and the player's position in under five minutes. DANG! I was so close. ” -revnorb

“ As we're moving to the DC area in a couple of months, I'll have to add this team to the sports viewing agenda down the road! "Go United" doesn't seem to have the same punch as "Go Hogs" though! ” -bkklaos

“ I must say that I was very impressed with Topps first effort in MLS. Nice simple fronts with great photos and nice inserts make this set one of the most appealing soccer sets for me. ” -Gunny

“ Is it snowing? ” -vrooomed

“ Are they playing in the snow or just a dusty scanner tray? If the former, that is awesome! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ This looks like a nice set. Too bad I can't find any soccer cards at any local stores. ” -jupiterhill

“ Wow that's loud. Too much activity on this card making my eyes hurt ” -Dixxy

“ Now that is an action shot! ” -jackal726

“ I wonder who made these kits??? ” -jlaz10

Set: 2004 Topps Traded & Rookies - Chrome (Rate)

Card: #T183 Juan Gutierrez

“ Foil, chrome whatever you want to call them just don't scan well. ” -thesemers

“ Nice set. I like the little outline by the player's number that is an image of the actual photo. Throwback of sorts to the 1973 and 1976 sets, but now they are customized. Clear name, position, and team logo on the front. Team name is big and bold. And the backs are typical Topps backs. (That's actually a good thing.) ” -vrooomed

“ Yet another parallel set to super saturate the hobby. Has no one else had enough of these? ” -addysdaddy

“ I wish Chrome cards scanned better, they always look great in person, but scans...not so much. At least they don't scan as bad as some foils. The card has an overall excellent design and quality action photo. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I'm glad I'm not the only one that ends up with ugly Chrome scans ” -jackal726

“ I've always liked Topps Chrome. Although it does get scratched easily. ” -jlaz10

Set: 2009 TriStar TNA Impact (Rate)

Card: #5 Bobby Lashley

“ That's the best picture they could come up with for the front of the card? ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Dose pecs doe ” -jlaz10

“ So, they even make men's fashion show cards now? ” -PMB
