Set: 2001 Upper Deck Vintage (Rate)

Card: #253 David Allen

“ Great card. Before I read the title & spotted the Vintage logo, I thought it was an old card. Of course, considering it's now 2015, some might argue that it's still an old card (lol) ” -Billy Kingsley

“ These cards have a very nice vintage texture. ” -carthage44

“ Does anyone know if Topps gave Upper Deck license to use the '71 design or did they just blatantly rip it off? ” -Id8jlb8666

“ Really nice card for lower priced. Beats a lot of their higher priced efforts. ” -NJdevils

“ A decent economy card. I appreciate the "old" cardboard feel and having both stats and a narrative on the back. ” -SFC Temple

“ Very interesting how his name is taped on the front of his helmet. Also, adidas in the NFL? ” -jlaz10

“ Looks like a poorly done rip-off of the 1971 Topps all-pro cards. Why is the name so small on top? Why doesn't "49ers" fill the bottom better? They didn't even have computers to use to set type in 1971, and they still did a better job of type sizing than this. ” -revnorb

“ Love the colors on the front! The back? Ehh.... ” -Joshua825

“ Ah who could forget the Upper Deck ripoff of a Topps Design..Vintage! ” -cynicalbuddha

Set: 1990-91 7th Inning Sketch WHL (Rate)

Card: #343 Victoria Cougars

“ Victoria apparently doesn't have a last name. ” -Id8jlb8666

“ If I didn't know better,I would say this guys name is Victoria,like Prince,Beyonce,Classified or whatever.I do like the Sketch sets though. ” -uncaian

“ I know most cards but I have never heard of 7th inning sketch. Simple design but effective. ” -carthage44

“ They need a lesson in typesetting, but otherwise, cool set. ” -vrooomed

“ So many things wrong!!! Don't see many hockey games go seven innings. Designer had no clue to as to what checkslist is. Different is not always good. ” -NJdevils

“ Nice sweater. The Cougars, now in Prince George, should go back to this color scheme. ” -jlaz10

Set: 1992 Fleer/ProCards (Rate)

Card: #728 Jose Munoz

“ Minor league cards always try so hard. ” -carthage44

“ Interesting design. It kind of looks like something you would get printed out of a mall photo booth, and I'm not sure if that's a good thing or not. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Not bad - the front border graphics remind me of what the local photographer does for my son's little league photos, but otherwise pretty nice. I do like how the theme is used on the reverse as well. ” -vrooomed

Set: 1969 Topps (Rate)

Card: #208 Donn Clendenon

“ They shouldn't have cropped so close, it looks silly with his name and team box superimposed over part of his head. Otherwise, a fine card. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Another ERR/VAR card! How sweet! ... the best part of card collecting is searching for the errors & variations. U gotta try it? ~BOB~ ” -BOBSCARDZ

“ I always loved the fun cartoon drawings on the back with the tidbits of info about the players! ” -bkklaos

“ Simple be effective design. Absolutely love the back of the card. ” -carthage44

“ Great back of card. Nice absence of company name on front, I think. ” -NJDevils

“ Interesting card. Clendenon was drafted from the Pittsburgh by the Expos in the 1968 espansion draft. He was then traded to the Astros, but refused to report and a few months later was then traded to the Mets. So he is pictured here with Houston (with whom he never played), in an airbrushed Pirates uniform while he was actually a member of the Expos. ” -DaClyde

“ Another Curt Flood type deal - traded to the Astros, but didn't report. Not a bad design for the card, but not my favorite of the 1960s. Other than the horizontal 1960 set (not a fan of horizontal cards), it's down there. Still better than 95% of the designs since 1985! ” -vrooomed

“ One of the simplest front card design I've seen. Yet still very affective. I gotta say that I'm not a big pink salmon fan though, for the back. ” -JimStaub

“ Obviously still in a Pirates uniform due to the black and gold piping, but why wouldn't you just leave the P on the helmet? It looks odd blank. ” -jlaz10

Set: 2014 SAGE HIT - Autographs Gold (Rate)

Card: #A114 Robert Herron

“ Can we petition the card companies to stop with the stickered autographs? ” -vrooomed

“ This is why modern autograph inserts need to be scaled WAY back. Scale the back to the point where players might actually sign their name and not just their initials. Soon, they'll just be signing with an 'X'. ” -DaClyde

“ I would like these cards more if they had an NCAA license and they could print the cards with the college teams logos and uniforms. ” -carthage44

“ I know the autograph/memorabilia inserts have spun out of control, but I still love the thrill of pulling one from a pack! ” -bkklaos

“ What uni is that, high school? ” -jlaz10

Set: 1994 Topps Archives 1954 - Gold (Rate)

Card: #251 Roberto Clemente

“ I never knew Clemente was a Dodger. Looks like a Montreal Royals hat. Was taken by the Pirates in the 1954 Rule 5 draft. ” -Mike67

“ One of the all-time greats! ” -cckeith

“ The Great One, one of the best moves the Buccos ever made was snatching him in the rookie draft when the Dodgers were trying to "hide" him as a bench player in Montreal. ” -Gunny

“ I love TOPPS ARCHIVES, especially the 1994 [1954] set. I have both regular and gold sets. Clemente + 6 other cards, have the reverse back ERRORS, also there are "orange variations" and "orange gold" SPs. My kinda set! ~BOB~ ” -BOBSCARDZ

“ I know people rip these reprints but for most people this will the closest you can get. ” -carthage44

“ I'd rather have the 1954 version, but as this is in my budget range, it would satisfy me! ” -bkklaos

“ Great card. Imagine an outfield of Jackie Robinson in left.Duke Snyder in center and Roberto Clemente in right. Would have been amazing ” -Garygriv

“ My dad's favorite player. I remember him telling me about Roberto. When my dad played, he had the same number. ” -JimStaub

“ Is it just me, or is it kinda ridiculous they couldn't get the player photos centered properly, leaving all this empty green space on the card? How hard and obvious an adjustment would that have been? ” -revnorb

“ I didn't even know he was a Dodgers prospect. Nice cap, too. ” -jlaz10

Set: 2013 Choice Vermont Lake Monsters (Rate)

Card: #27 Matt Stalcup

“ Cool team logo. They talk about this team often on the Albany news broadcasts when I am in Lake George, NY. (about 45 minutes from Vermont) Great card design, too. A lot of times I like the minor league designs better than the big league sets. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Sweet scan! ” -carthage44

“ The back is lackluster, but the front is pretty sharp. ” -jackal726

“ Lake Monsters? Is the team mascot Nessie? ” -Joshua825

“ Lake Monsters...love it! I'm now a (distant) fan! ” -bkklaos

“ His cap looks like a first base man plastic cap. Just like John Olerud. ” -JimStaub

“ Nice clean design. Reminds me of a BBM set from Japan. ” -DaClyde

“ Nice looking set. I like the uniform. I like the team name too. I would collect these ” -switzr1

“ The Lake Monsters had a great minor league set before they jumped on the kid-friendly bandwagon. ” -jlaz10

“ Just about as nice a MiLB card as you can get! Full-bleed front, with name, postion, uni #, team logo, and small manufacturer logo. The reverse has an actual card number (many MiLB sets surprisingly lack them), college stats!, and draft info. Only thing I'd like to see on these, somewhere, anywhere, is the MLB affiliate's name. (BTW, it's the A's.) ” -vrooomed

Set: 1963 Topps Astronauts (Rate)

Card: #45 John Glenn

“ I hope he wore that bow tie when he ate his 3-D fried egg on Mercury. ” -switzr1

“ Normally I don't trust a guy with a bow tie but John Glenn is a total badass. Went into space at 77 years old as a member of the U.S. Senate. You got my vote pal. ” -Id8jlb8666

“ Cool! I've been a fan of space exploration for my whole life- probably due to my love of Star Wars- my first memory of anything in life is watching Empire Strikes Back. I need to find some of these cards for my collection. I like how Topps used a continuation design for it's 1969 Man on the Moon series, of which I just got my first two cards of in December. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Awesome! Dixxy uploads all the "good stuff"! ” -bkklaos

“ Bow ties are cool! ” -koloth42

“ Aging myself, but I actually remember this! ” -BOBSCARDZ

“ I'm a sports card collector but this is just plain cool! ” -carthage44

“ This is a set idea that I think would be great if they did again with autos and GU space suits! I once worked for Charles Bolden, 4 time shuttle astronaut and now NASA Director. Great man! ” -CluelessJoe

“ The back makes the card for me. Fry an egg on Mercury. Made my day! ” -JimStaub

“ Great set. I don't know how I missed collecting these when I was a kid. I wonder if it was selective distribution? ” -NJdevils

“ John Glenn: An American Hero ” -jlaz10

“ You just have to love that bowtie! ” -Joshua825

Set: 1990 Score (Rate)

Card: #515 Jim Gott

“ I'll admit it. I really do like this set. My only gripe, and it's small - the numbers are not in the same spot on all the cards. REALLY small gripe. :) ” -vrooomed

“ Wow, he's moving so fast his mouth can't even keep up! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I love when the cards have full stats and a narrative. I rather see that than all the graphics ” -SSG Temple

“ I really like this score design. ” -carthage44

“ Am I the only one who prefers a horizontal back? ” -NJDevils

“ The Pirates, the innovators of pullovers and sansabelt, kept this look way too long. ” -jlaz10

“ I like the oversized and reversed letters that start his first and last name. The border and trim colors look like a Pac-Man cabinet... ” -revnorb

“ I've always liked the colorfully-bordered early Score baseball sets. 1988, 1990, and especially 1991. This was very uncommon in its day. This one has a nice back too. Too bad the 1990 Score Rookie/Traded set isn't colorful like the base set though. ” -switzr1

Set: 1984 O-Pee-Chee Michael Jackson (Rate)

Card: #31 Michael Jackson

“ One of the greatest entertainers ever and an even better human being. R.I.P Michael. ” -Id8jlb8666

“ I guess the interesting facts about Michael were used on cards 1-30? This sounds more like name-dropping. ” -switzr1

“ ummmmmm ! ” -uncaian

“ What do the Phillies and Michael Jackson have in common? They all wear only one glove for no apparent reason. :) ” -vrooomed

“ I am ashamed to admit that I have these cards. There, I am totally ashamed. ” -NJDevils

“ Definitely a baseball card. ” -jlaz10
