Set: 1991-92 Pro Set French (Rate)

Card: #87 Brad Shaw

“ This card came up just a few hours too late, as I missed one of these on Card-ology earlier today! I like the whale tail on the jersey. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ So many hockey cards! At least it's in French so I have an excuse for not knowing what's going on here. ” -ray fosse's ghost

“ Another hockey card. Descent image of Shaw but the card is rather plain beyond that. ” -koloth42

“ I like this set,no borders,nice backs and really, really affordable.A great set for kids to collect.It was pretty much error free, a big improvement from the year before.Shaw was a great defenseman,nothing flashy, but always reliable. ” -uncaian

“ A border would have been a nice addition to this card. ” -NJDevils

“ Oh how I miss the Hartford Whalers. ” -jupiterhill

“ Silliness: How many people called him Terry? On another note, ProSet was so terrible, it's not even worth the paper it's printed on. Sheeting a set costs more for the pages than the cards. Ouch! ” -vrooomed

“ Cue the Brass Bonanza! I miss the Whalers. ” -Gunny

“ I once bought a box of these. My French is still bad. ” -DanD

“ Best. Logo. Ever. ” -jlaz10

Set: 2012-13 Upper Deck (Rate)

Card: #108 Bryce Salvador

“ Another great new design from UD. I would be trying to complete this set if I collected Hockey. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Upper Deck will always be my favorite sports card brand, always had great photography and solid card designs.. ” -lyfestory

“ I thought Upper Deck did a very nice job with this set. Bryce looks good on this card, good skating shot compliments the design elements at the bottom. Bryce is also the 10th Captain in New Jersey Devils history. ” -Gunny

“ I like this set nice and clean presentation. ” -uncaian

“ Three cups in 20 years. Oh yeah, nice card too. ” -NJDevils

“ The Devils home uniforms work perfectly with their color scheme. ” -jlaz10

“ Nice to see hockey on here. Upper Deck's design is pretty much the same as it was 15 years ago. ” -vrooomed

Set: 1991 Sports Pro Medicine Hat Blue Jays (Rate)

Card: #18 Matt Wilke

“ Only played 2 seasons of minor league ball before being released but is forever immortalized with his picture on a minor league card sponsored by Monarch cable and Sport Pro! ” -ThemightyOx

“ The name of this set is ridiculously funny. ” -yokonashiwa

“ I normally store my medicine in the cabinet, not my hat. :) ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Matt Wilke, the talk of southeastern Alberta back in '91. Hopefully he's not back in Beaver Dam selling insurance or cars. ” -ray fosse's ghost

“ What's a Matt Wilke? ” -Young Kilo

“ The team name is certainly prominent, isn't it? Not a fan of the stars running down the side. I'd rather see a thinner, plain border allowing the photo to be larger. Good photo. Ads on the back are too big, but maybe they paid big money to be there. ” -vrooomed

“ I don't think they have enough stars in the design. ” -CluelessJoe

“ Such variety in Minor League card designs. :-D ” -koloth42

“ Even though they are the Blue Jays, you'd think they'd have at least a different cap than the parent club. ” -jlaz10

“ Looks like someone's Little League card. ” -DanD

“ Even the minors beats a star trek card. ” -NJDevils

“ Medicine Hat and Beaver Dam.. gotta love some of the city names.. the card is ridiculously bland.. ” -lyfestory

Set: 2005 Upper Deck (Rate)

Card: #392 Jake Peavy

“ Breathe dude, breathe! :) ” -Billy Kingsley

“ He's holding his breath until the ump calls it a strike. Foil makes a tough scan, but a decent card. Too much space used for the name area for me. ” -vrooomed

“ 20% of the card wasted on the blue junk at the bottom. Why not just put a mask over the player? ” -NJDevils

“ These BP jerseys were the first templated design throughout the MLB. ” -jlaz10

Set: 1996 Bowman's Best (Rate)

Card: #156 Dedric Mathis

“ Good design. 1996-97 saw the debut of Bowman's Best in basketball, the first time the Bowman name made an appearance in that arena since 1948-49 season. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I've always thought that cards that put the player over a manufactured background were odd looking. This card is a case in point. ” -koloth42

“ Looks like the team name is his bench that he's sitting on. ” -vrooomed

“ The Colts stripes still look good in the Nike templates. ” -jlaz10

“ This looks so awkward, especially since the background skews your perception of where the ground is. It looks like that last freeze frame before a season-ending injury on TV. ” -Luckynumber78

Set: 1992-93 O-Pee-Chee (Rate)

Card: #369 Nicklas Lidstrom

“ Classic early 90s design. Doesn't get much better than that! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Nice set,AWESOME player comes from the Stevie Y school of hockey, where you learn skill & class.I really like this set for the retro cards & inserts. ” -uncaian

“ Man, he played in the NHL forever ” -Hollywood42

“ Nice photo. so-so back of card. For those of you that didnt notice, the card was made by O-Pee-Chee O-PEE-Chee O-Pee-Chee....... ” -NJDevils

“ Number one reason why the NHL should go back to wearing white at home. ” -jlaz10

Set: 1988-89 Fleer - Stickers (Rate)

Card: #3 Clyde Drexler

“ I was just thinking to myself that it's been a while since a basketball card came up, with how many myself and others have been posting lately, the percentage of basketball cards posted to the Database is really getting up there. This is one I have not yet hunted down, despite the fact that Clyde was one of my favorite players. I've been busy scanning, editing and labeling a whole bunch of mine, getting ready to begin posting shortly. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Arguably the best Blazers uniforms. ” -jlaz10

“ Typical 80's Fleer design. ” -koloth42

“ Fleer seems to win. What do they win? Consistently using horrible photographs. Also, what's up with the billions of stars? I do, however, like the re-use of the front design on the reverse. ” -vrooomed

“ The Glide, great player.. Less egotistical stars back then, so it would seem.. ” -lyfestory

“ Those Blazers unis are both dated and awesome looking. Don't know how that works. ” -DanD

Set: 1998-99 Upper Deck MVP (Rate)

Card: #113 Andrew Brunette

“ Interesting to see this design used in 1998-99 for hockey, as it was used in 1999-00 in basketball. Normally when they use the same design for a set across sports they tend to do so in the same year. When the basketball MVP set came out, I was not that big a fan of it, as it was a much smaller set than the Collector's Choice it replaced. I did, however, complete it easily so that was a plus. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Nice set colorful,affordable & just big enough with a few rookies to make it worth collecting.Brunette was a pretty good role player,played over a 1,000 games,in the NHL. before retiring. ” -uncaian

“ I like the 99 UD MVP design, looks good for all sports. Great shot of the player (unless this card is for the player in the background like the one from a couple weeks ago). ” -CluelessJoe

“ Would have been a nice card had they ditched some of the useless lines to nowhere. ” -NJDevils

“ This hockey set looks better than the baseball alternative. Likewise, Brunette looks better in a Wild jersey ” -Hollywood42

“ These Preds jerseys pretty much invented the apron striping on their back long before Reebok implemented it on half the NHL. ” -jlaz10

“ Great player photo but a little to busy with the border design. ” -koloth42

Set: 1998 Bowman (Rate)

Card: #5 Mark McGwire

“ Wasn't 1998 when he was setting all kinds of records for home runs? I vaguely remember the hype of that time...he even sponsored a NASCAR team in 1998. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I like the look and coloring of the card, but not quite sure that I like the fake signature. McGwire was one of the greats! ” -grim25

“ Odd picture on this one and the border is a bit thick. ” -koloth42

“ I'm thinking the Astros got lucky in 1997. ” -ray fosse's ghost

“ The Cards uniforms seem very bland to me. They need some piping. ” -jlaz10

Set: 2001 Decipher Star Trek the Borg (Rate)

Card: #78 Donik (Personnel Hirogen)

“ There are so many great non-sports cards posted, and we keep getting game cards? What's up with that? Well, there are worse cards that could come up. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Star Trek CCG has become popular for card of the day. I have this one but I never played the Hirogen while I was into the game. ” -koloth42

“ oh no! not again! (and I actually like Star Trek) ” -volbox

“ A face only a mother could love.. heh... ” -lyfestory

“ Yup. Sorry that is all I can offer. ” -NJDevils

“ You might want to fix that. ” -jlaz10

“ Why??? ” -Hollywood42
