Set: 1992 Topps - Gold (Rate)

Card: #278 Darryl Hamilton

“ Although as I've stated this Topps design is one of my favorites, the cards layed out like this I like less than the normal vertical cards. But maybe that's just me. I'm not sure about baseball but the basketball version of this set was the first standard paralell in history. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Nice design for the wasteland of cards produced in the early 90's. I am a sucker for the gold parallel sets. ” -flcardtrader

“ Landscape cards look a lot better than portrait. ” -jlaz10

“ Horizontal layout cards have always appealed to me ” -Hollywood42

“ Topps Gold was the start of complete parallel sets. As a kid, I thought the gold foil made the card worth hundreds! ” -carthage44

Set: 1907-09 A.C. Dietsche Postcards Detroit Tigers PC765 (Rate)

Card: #5 Jerry Downs

“ Are his feet and the shadow drawn in? Sure looks fake to me. ” -carthage44

“ I would have loved to find something like this in my grandfather's attic. Sadly this would have predated him. ” -koloth42

“ Hey where is everyone? ” -PDIZZLE

“ Kinda looks like Dracula! ” -jlaz10

“ Interesting way to display his name. Looks more like graffiti than a label ” -Hollywood42

Set: 2010 Press Pass Premium (Rate)

Card: #7 Kurt Busch

“ Not a race car card fan, but this is a nice picture. Like the car in the background. ” -yokonashiwa

“ The only thing I hate more than NASCAR is NASCAR cards. It is not a sport and it never will be, GO AWAY!!! ” -carthage44

“ Finally, a NASCAR card is pulled for Card of the Day! It's not one I've added to the Database but I'm glad to see it's here. 2010 was a good year for Kurt- multiple wins, and few outbursts. Kurt has...some trouble...keeping his temper in check, and it eventually cost him his ride with Penske Racing...his replacement won the 2012 Championship. This set features holofoil on every card, which does not scan well. James Mashburn got it to scan well for him, on my scanner it shows up with pink and purple lines through it for some unknown reason. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ They even make NASCAR cards. ” -jlaz10

“ His face almost looks like Harvey at the end of The Dark Knight ” -Hollywood42

“ hahahahahahahahahahahaha...I thought they were supposed to put real race car drivers on these cards! ” -Rod_Davis_86

Set: 1986 Brown's (Rate)

Card: #52 Melvin Paul

“ Did they use a stamp pad to put his name and fighting class on the card? ” -yokonashiwa

“ Never knew that had boxing cards. Now I know why. ” -carthage44

“ I was surprised to see Mel fought in the 70's & 80's. He was 16-0 going into his fight with Hector Camacho in 1982 and then proceeded to go 6-8 to end his career with 22 wins in 1986. I wouldn't want to cross this guy in his heyday. ” -flcardtrader

“ This is the first boxing card to make Card of the Day, isn't it? Boxing doesn't do much for me, but it's nice to see a different sport represented in the CotD. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Huh. Don't see boxing cards on Random Card of the Day very often ” -Hollywood42

Set: 1982 Topps (Rate)

Card: #100 Gifford Nielsen

“ This is a staged photo. Was all of the photos in this set like that? ” -yokonashiwa

“ This was the first year I collected football cards. The pennant/flag always reminded me of the 1980 topps baseball (which was when I started collecting baseball). Nostalgia rating 10! ” -bplay24

“ Topps always had classic designs. This one is no different! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ A nice set by Topps. Much better than the later black border sets. ” -NJDevils

“ One of my favorite sets. Nice big photo with a boarder that ties in with the Topps logo and I have always liked the team helmet and pennant. Then is when cards did a great job of appealing to kids. ” -carthage44

“ I like the look of this set. I couldn't guess the year based on the graphics. It could be from '72 if I didn't know otherwise. ” -DanD

“ Is the name a joke? ” -sascards67

Set: 1966 Topps (Rate)

Card: #407 John Kennedy

“ Random oddball factoid: There were NASCAR drives named Bob, John and Ted Kennedy, George Bush and Bill Clinton. I don't think any ever got cards, though, as most of them were fairly obscure and before the card companies noticed NASCAR. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Are my eyes deceiving me? That sure looks like a President, not a 3rd baseman. ” -jlaz10

“ A great set. The last I put together as a kid. love the backs too. ” -NJDevils

“ On the back of his 66 Topps card it says, 'John is well known for his famous quote, 'Ask not, what Walter O'Malley can do for you, but what you can do for Walter O'Malley.'....ok, not really but it brought a smile to my face. ” -flcardtrader

“ Kennedy's did it all. ” -carthage44

“ So is he left-handed and batting cross-handed or is he right-handed but his follow thru involves looking at the umpire? Terrible pose. ” -sascards67

Set: 2000 Upper Deck - Hit Brigade (Rate)

Card: #H13 Frank Thomas

“ Another nice card of the day selection. Good photo, non-distracting designs for the insert set. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I like the Upper Deck cards. The 2000 set is really nice and this particular insert is cool. The way Frank Thomas' picture stands out is great. However, his name is a little hard to read or it could just be the scan making it that way. Either way, I wish I had more of this set. ” -yokonashiwa

“ That's just an ugly card ” -Young Kilo

“ Soooo many inserts from the late 90s/ealy 00s.....WHY ” -Hollywood42

“ Is this a jigsaw puzzle? Because it's missing some of the pieces. ” -NJDevils

Set: 1991 O-Pee-Chee Premier (Rate)

Card: #11 Wade Boggs

“ The design is well done on this one. Large photo, with the player's name, team and position large enough to be easily read, but not so overly large that it hides a portion of the picture. The same goes for the set logo. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I've never thought of O-Pee-Chee as Premier. ” -jlaz10

“ I wasn't a big fan of these sets. ” -Mike67

“ O-Pee-Chee can stick to Hockey, please stay away from baseball. ” -carthage44

“ Pretty sure we've seen this stance pic of Boggs in at least 30 different sets by now ” -Hollywood42

“ Tres bien. Il est une carte bonne. That's all I know other than 'Ou est la bibliotheque'. (Where is the library) ” -NJDevils

Set: 1997-98 Quad City Thunder CBA (Rate)

Card: #24 Jimmy King

“ I suspect this card does not fit the Database guidelines...they are only supposed to be posted if they are as issued by the card companies. Maybe this one came this way, as I've never seen any cards from this set in person. Jimmy King had only a few NBA cards...I was always happy to get them when I did, as it's the closest to a Kingsley the NBA has ever come. I always wished the CBA and other lower-level leagues got card issues, I found out later they got regional issues (Like this one) but as I'm nowhere near the regions I could not get them. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Ok, autographed pizza cards? This is just too much! ” -carthage44

“ Woooooooohooooo. . . . ” -Hollywood42

“ hmmmmm....pizza...hmmmmm ” -NJDevils

“ Pizza basketball! Yeah! ” -jlaz10

Set: 2011 Topps Tier One - Top Shelf Relics (Rate)

Card: #TSR44 Hank Aaron

“ Droooooooooool...... ” -sascards67

“ Top shelf for sure, NICE! ” -carthage44

“ Nice card of Hammerin' Hank! ” -suomibear8

“ I freely admit that I know nothing about baseball, but even I have heard of Hank Aaron. This is a nicely composed card, the only thing it's really missing is his first name. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I swing two bats to get double the home runs! ” -jlaz10

“ These Top Shelf cards are fantastic ” -Hollywood42

“ Here is a piece of Hank Aaron's potato sack from '46, which he used during a race at birthday party of his friend's cousin's niece's cat, fact...now you own it... ” -SaveDaKid
