Set: 1978 Montreal Expos Postcards (Rate)

Card: #13 Wayne Garrett

“ Bring the Expos back. Loved that logo! ” -carthage44

“ I never really considered post cards as trading cards in the past, but I suppose if they are a numbered series they would count. I also collect post cards, but most of my collection (under 30 cards, I believe) I purchased myself on vacations. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ The late, lamented Montreal Expos did a great run of color postcards from 1977-2004. The first grouping was from 1977-1979 and featured the player's name and position in French and English. I was 14 when I receieved my first one back in 1979- from Gary Carter- personalized to me. Another interesting fact: most, if not all of the photos from this era were taken by Denis Brodeur, whose son you might know for being the future Hall of Fame goalie of the New Jersey Devils, Martin Brodeur. ” -PlayerPCCollector

“ A bit on the plain side but what do you expect form a 1978 circa postcard collectable? ” -koloth42

“ It's odd looking at an Expos jersey without full-sleeve and side racing stripes. ” -jlaz10

“ Were the Expos required by law to argue with the umpire in both English and French? ” -UNC_Samurai

“ Oh how I miss my Expos ” -uncaian

Set: 1981 Coca-Cola Philadelphia Phillies (Rate)

Card: #6 Bake McBride

“ I have a love/hate thing with local team issues. On one hand, they are incredibly cool to have...but on the other, they can be frustrating to hunt down, especially if you live nowhere near the team. (although that's probably not much an issue anymore, with the internet....but the concept seems to have trailed off in the days of the net) ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Shake n Bake McBride! Good times back then! don't care for the coke symbol though. ” -tonym

“ Who's intrested in seeing some guy's backside? ” -deporcoruña

“ Sounds like a great name for a McDonald's employee. ” -suomibear8

“ Bake McBride at 400°F for 30 minutes or until he scores in the 25th inning. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ Does advertisement like this really pay off? ” -jlaz10

“ I liked 1981 Topps. This set, not as much, but it's still nice ” -Hollywood42

“ AHAHAHAHAHAHH Wake & Bake McBride...who names there child bake??? ” -SaveDaKid

“ Great name Bake. Nice design except for the hat. ” -goldeneye

“ Damn. Looks like the people at Topps were "baked" as well ” -Young Kilo

“ A new item on the McDonald's menu? ” -DanD

“ Logic test: Coca-Cola is headquartered in Atlanta. Atlanta has the Braves. There is no Coke set for the Braves. = Illogical ” -sascards67

Set: 1994 Collector's Choice - Silver Signature (Rate)

Card: #597 Erik Hanson

“ to all of the nascar haters out their just go to a race. when they fire up all those car at once that's it you will be hook ” -james mashburn

“ As aa child I thought it was cool that you got a chance to see every players signature in the series. ” -carthage44

“ I can't wait for stirrups to make a comeback. I also like the old timey pictures on the collectors choice. ” -SSG Temple

“ When I think "Collector's Choice", I think Erik Hanson. What was the other choice, Chris Bosio? ” -UNC_Samurai

“ I always enjoy facsimile signatures as a set...like the hockey ones for MVP. ” -suomibear8

“ I like the subtle pinstripes on the border of the card. CC was a decent effort at an entry-level set for kids to collect, across all sports. Not a fan of the pitcher graphic in the lower right corner, too distracting. ” -wamk

“ In my mind, Topps was alwasy the Collector's Choice. ” -jlaz10

“ That is the worst throwing motion I have ever seen ” -Hollywood42

Set: 2011 Topps WWE Champions (Rate)

Card: #54 Sheamus Becomes King of the Ring

“ A better design than 95% of the baseball cards that came out in the 90's, even though I am no fan of "wrestling". ” -wamk

“ Wow, Roy Halladay has let himself go. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ This card scares me ” -Hollywood42

“ Wrestling was hugely popular with my friends when I was in school, but I just couldn't get into it. I watched it a few times just to see what made it so popular, but it just wasn't for me. I am glad to see some more variety in card of the day, though...there's a whole lot more to the world of trading cards than just baseball and football. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I'm guessing he's Irish. ” -jlaz10

Set: 2003 Inkworks X-Files Season 9 (Rate)

Card: #63 (Credits) 9x20

“ Good to see a non-sports card chosen as Card of the Day, even though it's from a property I have no interest in. Non-sports cards date back to the 1870s and cover pretty much any possible topic. TV shows have been a favorite topic for the past 30 years or so. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Yikes! I have no problem with entertainment cards. I use to collect them myself and have full sets of Star Wars and thinks like Raiders of the Lost Ark. My beef with this is that it is a lousy image for a card. ” -koloth42

“ So... ” -jlaz10

“ LOVE this design ” -thechestnut

Set: 1994 Pinnacle (Rate)

Card: #74 Joe Girardi

“ Another player that took steriods and that still didn't help his play. So it is fitting that he is the manager for the "Evil Empire". ” -carthage44

“ The '94 set was Pinnacle's best. Upper Deck should have taken a couple of notes from this. ” -jlaz10

“ Borderless cards never really appealed to me. They are WAY too easy to tear up. ” -SSG Temple

Set: 1996-97 Metal Universe (Rate)

Card: #192 Jamie Storr

“ This reminds me of the Matrix, specifically Neo, when he takes the pill, touches the mirror and is engulfed by it. ” -SaveDaKid

“ Goalies always have such cool helmets. ” -carthage44

“ Looks like a topographic map behind him and meteors flying through him.. I don't think I like it.. ” -Mike67

“ this cards were shiny and nice new,but a few of mine look like they are disintegrating ” -uncaian

“ I always liked the Metal cards. This design doesn't really work much for me, but if it's anything like the basketball set that looks like it from 1997-98, pretty much every card in the set was different. This would would have been better without the asteroids? boulders? burned pancakes? flying past him leaving a trail. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I'm drowning in a sea of confusion ” -Hollywood42

“ A goalie full of holes? Probably not what he'd like to portray. I was always a sucker for the Metal cards. ” -SSG Temple

“ It's hard to tell that there is a player on here. Bad. Bad. Bad. ” -sascards67

“ Another irrelevant card in the grand scheme of things....metal is better with Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, and Deep Purple...long live heavy metal! ” -flcardtrader

“ His mask sorta blends in there, no? ” -jlaz10

Set: 1990-91 SkyBox (Rate)

Card: #19 Kevin McHale

“ BRING BACK THE SHORTS!!! ” -carthage44

“ What were they thinking with this design? ” -Young Kilo

“ McHale was nearing the end of his playing days here, en route to having his #32 retired by the Celtics...one of many numbers hanging in the rafters in Boston. When 1990-91 Skybox came out, it was unique in that it used computer generated designs for the background, the first set (at least for basketball) to not even make any attempts at using a real action photo- not counting the staged photos Topps favored into the late 1970s- but digitally removing the background came to be the norm in the 2000s, building up through the 90s. I personally don't care much for cards that have been digitally altered like this...not that it stops me from collecting them, though. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Yikes! That is a very ugly card. Good thing I'm not into Basketball cards. I might have quit over this design. ” -koloth42

“ All I can think about is Tron. ” -DanD

“ Great player, not so great of a card ” -Hollywood42

“ Ugh, Skybox. Hated how they made every ball look like a comet! ” -wamk

“ Comment banned for content! ” -SSG Temple

“ So, so, wrong. ” -sascards67

Set: 1984 Topps (Rate)

Card: #143 Andre Tippett

“ Early and mid 80's Topps football nailed it! Great cards. ” -carthage44

“ He looks hung over ” -Young Kilo

“ There was really no need to have this card tipped. It reminds me of the 1960s Batman TV show's odd camera angles. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Topps really had no sense of graphic design in the 80s, although this layout isn't nearly as frustrating as the black cards with giant white lettering they resorted to the following year. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ It's okay to have one thing on an angle, but not everything. ” -jlaz10

“ 1984 printing wasn't the clearest, but I remember it being a lot better than this! ” -Hollywood42

“ 84 Topps were the first cards I remember buying at the corner store. I can't tell you how many Elway, Marino, etc rookies got used and abused as only kids can! Man those were the days. Beautiful set. ” -SSG Temple

“ Wow. Incredibly bad scan. ” -sascards67

Set: 2009 Press Pass Stealth (Rate)

Card: #9 Dale Earnhardt Jr.

“ My all time favorite driver (tied with Ernie Irvan) Considering how many NASCAR cards I've posted since I joined, I think it's only a matter of time before one of mine is the random Card of the Day...I hope! Let's keep the hate comments to ourselves, please. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ The racing cards are the only ones where the sharp graphics and designs truly fit. I dont collect these but they are appropriate to the sport. ” -NJDevils

“ Seems kind of busy to me. ” -koloth42

“ 2nd Place at Daytona! Not too shabby. ” -jlaz10

“ I've never understood the "excitement" behind NASCAR ” -Hollywood42
