Set: 1996 SkyBox Impact Rookies (Rate)

Card: #131 Tony Martin

“ Putting the foil over the player image doesn't work for me. The foil looks like it might be green or multi-color, which is cool, though. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I get the feeling this guy might be a rookie sleeper ” -Young Kilo

“ Sometimes the hardest obstacle for a football player can be plowing through not your opponents, but a card's funky lettering. So close to a nice card design, and yet... so, so far. ” -Luckynumber78

“ Too distracting for my taste. ” -koloth42

“ Not sure, but he may have been a "rookie sleeper".. ” -wamk

“ Nope. ” -NJDevils

“ I'm getting verrrry sleepy. Rookie Sleepy. ” -ray fosse's ghost

“ Oh, Skybox. Calling a guy an "Impact Rookie" in 1996, who was drafted in 1989 and had already caught 22 TDs with two different teams? Your vocabulary is only rivaled by your skill in graphic design. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ You are getting sleeepy..... sleeeeeepy...... sleeeeeeepy..... ” -flcardtrader

“ Wouldn't really consider that something I would want on my card ” -eyoung11

“ Still sleeping somewhere... ” -SaveDaKid

“ Back when Starter made NFL unis... ” -jlaz10

Set: 1976 Indianapolis Indians Team Issue (Rate)

Card: #9 Tom Hume

“ That's one way of misspelling Mazatlán. ” -volbox

“ I've been waiting for this. An Indianapolis Indians card finally made the Card of the Day. The cards prior to '88 didn't look like much but they were done in house by the Indians Organizatation and printed locally. This one is also set at the old Bush Stadium that was the home to the Indians for many years. As a kid we always wanted to see someone hit a HR into the Teepee next to Tom's Glove. Good times. ” -koloth42

“ Looks like an insurance salesman at fantasy camp.. ” -wamk

“ This is a good card. Nice to see my favorite minor league team. ” -Colts12

“ Tom Hume, always rocking the cool glasses. He was an icon of the 80's (but not really, but kind of) ” -ray fosse's ghost

“ The card is fairly non-descript but I like the fact that the local team issued cards. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ The shades just say "Deal With It" ” -eyoung11

Set: 1987 Fleer (Rate)

Card: #332 Bryn Smith

“ If there's no such thing as The Society of Bearded Athletes, I declare it's foundation right now! ...(card collecting is a sport, right? I'm not sure if you can start an athletic association if you are not an athlete!) ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I'll grudgingly admit the old Montreal uniforms and logo were cool. The Peter Jackson beard? Not so much. ” -Luckynumber78

“ Great design from fleer, especially the high gloss versions. The design that came the following year really had me scratching my head after this one. ” -Shane715

“ Did this card come with a bag of Doritos? ” -UNC_Samurai

“ Bryn Smith was a pretty good pitcher for the Expos back in the day. He was also very accommodating to autograph requests. At one time, I had collected every card he appeared on with signature on it. Another Fleer set that looks great signed, too! ” -PlayerPCCollector

“ Started and won the home opener in the Rockies inagural season in '93 ” -volbox

Set: 1988 Score (Rate)

Card: #525 Kirk Gibson

“ He kind of seems to be running away from his 88 Score card. Somehow they just managed to catch him and frame him in before he made his escape to the Dodgers. ” -ray fosse's ghost

“ terrible photo for a player like Kirk or anyone for that matter. Also not a fan of the design. A little basic even for 1980's standards. ” -jupiterhill

“ The Tigers are unique in the fact that they use many belt loops on their pants, while most teams use belt tunnels. ” -jlaz10

“ Don't see yellow borders that often. It looks good. I can tell by the cross-hatching this was done on a Canon scanner, mine does the same thing for some unknown reason. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ My favorite Whiskey!!! Did he invent it? Mmmm... Gibsons ” -Dixxy

“ Always wished that they would center the picture based on the player, not including the bat. Looks soooo far off when centered with the player AND the bat ” -Hollywood42

“ "I don't believe what I just scanned!" ” -UNC_Samurai

“ Love these 88 Score cards. Borders are nice, and they usually have great photos as well. ” -marcbrubaker

Set: 2002-03 Fleer Premium - Court Collection (Rate)

Card: #7 John Stockton

“ Great player and I must admit that I do like the design of this card. Plus a relic card, which I always enjoy. Although I have gotten used to the club name Utah Jazz, I do think they could have done better after their relocation. ” -Gunny

“ Cool idea but lacks something in implementation. ” -koloth42

“ Good idea with the background, but it could be much, much better. Also not the best pic of Stockton ever ” -Hollywood42

“ As jersey cards go, this one is pretty lame.. ” -wamk

“ John Stockton FTW!!! ” -eyoung11

“ I wonder if that game-worn jersey was ever game worn, or if it was a John Stockton jersey, or if it was even a Jazz jersey. ” -jlaz10

“ That BETTER be a jersey. The thought of owning a piece of Stockton's ***-huggers is more than a little frightening. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ My first Basketball submission to come up as Card of the Day! Woo hoo! I pulled this card from a pack when I did the box when it was new. I was a huge fan of the Jazz when Stockton and Malone were there, and he still had the skills when he retired. White jersey pieces don't always scan well, but you can see some of the texture in this one. Fun fact: I scanned the front of the card with my first scanner, and the back with my third. Fleer Premium was originally Skybox Premium, and went back to Skybox again shortly after this. Not sure why they used a black and white photo for this series. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Well now HERE is a keeper! I'm a fan of the GWJ Cards. Don't think it's of much value now as it was way back, too many of these "Novelties" in practically every pack. Card dealer I like sells them for 5 bucks a card. Shame. ” -Dixxy

Set: 1988 Leaf/Donruss (Rate)

Card: #12 Tony Fernandez

“ I would cheer for the jays... but my father told me that the Grey Cup games were for hooligans and fools. I didn't have the heart to tell him that the grey cup was hockey, not soccer... ” -Dixxy

“ Had four different stints with the Blue Jays. I always liked the Diamond Kings cards ” -Mike67

“ Once (c. 1992) singled to right only to be thrown out at first by Larry Walker. ” -volbox

“ This 1988 Leaf/Donruss set comes up a lot. (I even have one in my collection, not sure where I got it) First time I've seen subset come up from it though. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ His mustache is trying to escape via the corners of his mouth. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ I knew my high school French would come in handy one day. "arret-court"...."stop short". Isn't that George Costanza's father's gimmick..."stopping short"? ” -NJDevils

“ More teams should use contrast-panel caps like the Jays did. ” -jlaz10

“ Now that's a Jay who earned his Diamond King status! He was inducted to the team's Level of Excellence following his playing career. ” -DanD

“ Tony Fernandez. What a guy ” -eyoung11

“ I generally like cards with nice paintings instead of photos. These Donruss ones are a little odd, since they often used the referenced photographs on different cards, and the colours here look a little more like melted candy than human skin. Still a nice card and a nice set. ” -LuckyNumber78

Set: 2000-01 Pacific Private Stock Titanium - Game Gear (Rate)

Card: #131 Rene Corbet

“ I always liked Rene's tenacious style of play. Although he didn't spend a great deal of time as a Penguin he did help the club in 2001 reach the Conference Final series. As far as the card goes, Penguin player check, Penguin memorabilia card check, instant purchase done. ” -Gunny

“ Sharp looking relic card even if it is hockey. ” -koloth42

“ Looks like someone just asked him a question about non-Newtonian physics. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ I like it. Cool design, fairly early on in the relic phenomenon, yet still gives you a little bit about the person on the back. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Sometimes less is better than more when it comes to insert cards. Sometimes Pacific hit the mark but other times not so much. ” -uncaian

Set: 1986 Fleer (Rate)

Card: #114 Dan Pasqua

“ This design just skirts the border of classy and boring. ” -Luckynumber78

“ This picture just looks fake ” -Hollywood42

“ I like the design, but that's par for the course as I've always liked Fleer designs. I'm not sure why Fleer and Topps used to list player's homes, though...yeah, it's kind of cool to see who is local and you might see walking down the street, but if I were a player I'd be afraid some nutty stalker was going to hide in the bushes waiting for me to come home. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Ew. Yankees ” -Erik_Young

“ Fairly typical Fleer design from the 80's. Never was much of a fan of Fleer at the time as I was a hardcore Topps fan. I guess when it comes down to it I prefer a white border unless it it an insert set. ” -koloth42

Set: 1988 Topps (Rate)

Card: #186 Andre Tippett

“ "Doug Flutie is our starting QB??"....it was the best of time and it was the worst of times for this HoF'er on a non-playoff bound 1988 Pats team. ” -flcardtrader

“ He appears to be deep in thought, as if pondering how many of the future members of his team will end up in jail...or maybe just wondering when Topps is coming by to take that photo. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Andre Tippett never shot nobody either. ” –jimmyjam

“ Good Ole' Andre ” -Erik_Young

Set: 1993 Pacific (Rate)

Card: #263 Greg McMurtry

“ I like the borders...too bad they designed it to make your head tilt to the left, thus causing semi-permanent neck injury (lol) ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Greg McMurtry never shot nobody. ” -jimmyjam

“ I miss the old Patriots uniform. ” -wamk
