Tuesday, December 24, 2013

Set: 2002 Bowman (Rate)

Card: #193 Derrick Lewis

“ Before changing his name to Dwayne Wade, Derrick Lewis tried a career in baseball, but after some embarrassing outings a name & sport change was due for Derrick to hide from his past & start a new... ” -SaveDaKid

“ These were the years when Bowman had too much going on and looked like a mid-'90s mess, all the way into the mid-'00s. Boooring. ” -Luckynumber78

“ An interesting thing about the Braves uniforms is that up until 2005, their player names were vertically arched, not radially, as is common. ” -jlaz10

“ I've seen this design come up as Card of the Day before, and I like it. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Looks like something an ancient Egyptian slave carved several millennia ago. ” -revnorb

“ If I remember right, there's some great RCs and stars in this set. Don't believe this guy is one of them.. ” -Hollywood42

Set: 2010 Topps - Turkey Red (Rate)

Card: #TR93 Ian Desmond

“ Really cool card and design for a player who never really lived up to expectations. ” -Luckynumber78

“ FORE!!!! ” -SSG Temple

“ The current Nationals unis are so much better than their originals. Remember, addition by subtraction is better than addition by addition. ” -jlaz10

“ My first thought when I saw this card was "What is wrong with this card?" I am not a fan of painted cards unless it is Donruss Diamond Kings. I didn't like it at first, but it has grown on me. Bet it looks better in person. ” -yokonashiwa

“ I didn't know Andrew Wyeth worked for Topps... ” -Norb Rozek

Set: 1991 Upper Deck (Rate)

Card: #180 Mervyn Fernandez

“ I miss you L.A. Raiders. ” -ray fosse's ghost

“ This is a really cool action shot, but I don't think he's gonna make that catch. I like umpire's expression, though. ” -Luckynumber78

“ Had some great years in the CFL with B.C. Lions. ” -dobbie

“ Ugh, screenprint! ” -jlaz10

“ I like the football shaped hologram. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Swervin Mervyn Fernandez. Another attempt by Al Davis to throw the deep ball that never panned out. ” -whoisrob

Set: 1960 Bazooka (Rate)

Card: #4 Hank Aaron

“ Is this an actual card, or a wax paper gum wrapper? I see it does say cards on the bottom, and the back appears to be cardboard. I don't know enough about them to know. I don't know much about baseball (I think I've actually learned more by reading Card of the Day and random "recently added" cards I click than I have from SportsCenter, actually!) but even I have heard of Hank Aaron. ” -Billy Kingsley


“ The Braves unis today are similar to these, but will never be as good as their Milwaukee duds. ” -jlaz10

“ One of the "cut the card off the cardboard box" cards. Of course it is Hank Aaron and therefor ultimately cool. I hadn't realized Bazooka gum has been around that long. Cool card. ” -yokonashiwa

“ Maybe a little too simple? I'd still like one. ” -vrooomed

“ The real home run king. ” -deporcoruña

Set: 1992 Fleer (Rate)

Card: #158 Tom Gordon

“ I like the 1992 Fleer, they(Fleer) started back on the road to quality sets. And this is Steven King's favorite player? ” -Jerry Yeager

“ Cool design, but the name, especially the first name, seems a little hard to read. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I can't be 100% sure! but I think his name is "Gordon". Perhaps a larger font would help. ” -wamk

“ I liked this set and the 93 set. It was nice to see Fleer get away from the retina searing colours. ” -Mike67

“ All I can think about to say is contortionist. ” -Dixxy

“ 1992 Fleer - the year Fler decided to try to keep up with the Jones's in their base set (they already tried the previous year with Ultra). A little too much green for my tastes, but overall a good set. Looks much better in hand than in a scan. Try finding the update set for under $20 these days - heck, try finding it for under $30! ” -vrooomed

“ The Royals whites are some of the best in the bigs. ” -jlaz10

“ Society deteriorated once designers found the "blend" tool in Photoshop. ” -Norb Rozek

“ An underrated set and an underrated reliever. All around good stuff here. ” -Luckynumber78

“ I always liked this set. I also was a big fan of Tom Gordon in the Kansas City years. Glad the Royals are getting some love on the card of the day. ” -jupiterhill

Set: 1991 JOGO (Rate)

Card: #164 Robert Mimbs

“ 91 CFL! Yes! ” -ray fosse's ghost

“ Someone in the editing dept really loved the bold and italic options when typing up the paragraph for the back of this card ” -ThemightyOx

“ I was liking this card until I looked at the back. Why, oh why, did they randomly make some words bold and some are italicized? Looks horrendous. And unreadable. I keep trying to stress those words as i read it. Doesn't work. However, the action photo is nice. ” -vrooomed

“ Not everyday you see a CFL card. ” -jlaz10

“ Yay Argos! Rip him apart! ” -DanD

“ I've never seen a team name set in 12 point Times New Roman (or local equivalent) before. I kinda hope to never see it again. The tiny name in a faux-script font at the bottom is similarly horrible. I did always like that CFL logo, however. Too bad it's not bigger. ” -revnorb

Set: 2006 Bowman Heritage (Rate)

Card: #143 Victor Martinez

“ After all those 1990s cards, where it looked like graphic designed barfed colors everywhere, the 2000s bring back simplicity. Just goes to show, they knew what they were doing back in the early days of bubble gum card design! ” -vrooomed

“ I don't know if the old Bowman set didn't have any stats on the back, but in today's game, no stats on the back of a baseball card is a cardinal sin in my book... ” -lyfestory

“ This is a nice-looking card. I'm all in favour of a retro look that actually looks vintage. The back completes the look nicely. ” -Luckynumber78

“ The current Indians uniforms are so much better than these. It's funny because the only difference is there's no sleeve braid or plaquet piping; just a simple stripe on the sleeve ends and neck. ” -jlaz10

Set: 2009 Upper Deck First Edition (Rate)

Card: #198 Jon Niese

“ I miss Topps having some competition, but unfortunately, the hobby just doesn't have the muscle to support it. A nice looking card, but part of the First Edition/Opening Day strategy that is of questionable value and interest. ” -PlayerPCCollector

“ Thank god the Mets took black out of their color scheme. When you think of the New York Mets, you think of blue and orange, not black, right? ” -jlaz10

“ Front of card is a little busy. Back would have been very nice if they thought of something to put below his limited stats. ” -NJDevils

“ More like Upper Deck Last Edition ” -volbox

Set: 2009-10 Topps (Rate)

Card: #212 Jeff Green

“ The last Topps set before the NBA gave Panini it's exclusive license. (Why sports do this is beyond me, it never works well...although Panini does a better job with the NBA than Press Pass does with NASCAR) I miss Topps' NBA presence, the main Topps set was always a favorite of mine. I only have one card from this set, as I was away from the NBA when it was issued. The Thunder are an exciting team to watch, but Green was traded to the Celtics. So, the player named green now wears green. He missed an entire year with heart problems. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ So after nearly a year on the site (which I love, BTW), I finally got a scan on the CotD! Hey Billy, I finally got one! So Titanup74...how do you submit the back, but not the front...what happened? I've run across that a few times...just curious!? Cheers! ” -bkklaos

“ I've never been a fan of the Thunder's uniform set, but maybe that's because I loved the Sonics unis so much. ” -jlaz10

Set: 2003 Topps Heritage (Rate)

Card: #309 Carlos Guillen

“ This design would have looked better with a top border. I like the back of the card better. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Eeehhh how many times do I have to tell you, I'm not related to Ozzie... ” -SaveDaKid

“ i like the Heritage cards.. too bad i never bought many... ” -lyfestory

“ Nice Heritage card,back & front. ” -uncaian

“ Extremely cool card design; extremely awkward facial expression. The design on the back is sumptuous. ” -Luckynumber78

“ The Mariners uniforms are very modern, although they've been wearing them since the mid-90's. ” -jlaz10
