Set: 2004 Upper Deck Entertainment DC VS System Superman: Man of Steel (Rate)

Card: #DSM-084 Silver Banshee, Siobhan McDougal

“ Pretty weak Graphics for a TCG ” -SSG Temple

“ Not a fan of playing cards but at least it's DC. Kind of an obscure character, at least by 2004. She could kill people if she knew their true name combined with the magic sonics of her scream. I was a DC reader from literally 5 days old until 2011. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ lol. Just lol. ” -Dixxy

Set: 1952 Red Man (Rate)

Card: #AL23 Ted Williams

“ Sweet!!! I'd trade my entire collection for a mint one of these! Boy would that make my wife happy! ” -bkklaos

“ Nice card! ” -uncaian

“ Whose collection WOULDN'T benefit from having this added to it? ” -vrooomed

“ Big card...things were different in the 1950s...I remember when he passed away and the controversy surrounding that. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ For the youngsters out there, that's Red Man chewing tobacco. And as Walt Garrison always said "just put a pinch between your cheek and gum". Great advice, Walt. ” -NJdevils

“ I read the back and the first thing that pops into my head is family guy. "Smoke!" ” -Dixxy

“ Great old Red Sox B on his cap. ” -jlaz10

Set: 2001-02 Topps (Rate)

Card: #118 Brad Stuart

“ Not sure why Topps went on a color kick for a few years there. 1999-00 was orange, then purple and then blue, then back to the tradition white borders. (For the NBA at least) I kind of liked it at the time, but now that I am scanning them, I like the white borders better- don't show off the dust and scuzz that invariably gets trapped on the bottom of the scanner's glass tray. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I can see he plays for the Sharks and I'm guessing his name is Sunoco because I can't tell what it is. ” -NJDevils

“ Nice early card of a future HHOFer. ” -vrooomed

“ These Sharks unis were too Nike-ified. Hockey is the only sport where sweaters should stay the same, forever. ” -jlaz10

“ I really liked this set & the inserts. ” -uncaian

“ Never was a big fan of the Topps/OPC dual version. If you're going to make 2 different brands, make them look different. What's even worse is the OPC parallel in Topps products. Is that really necessary? There's already enough confusion with parallels... ” -suomibear8

Set: 1967 Topps (Rate)

Card: #542 Rick Monday / Tony Pierce

“ Too bad this card is not going to come up as Card of the Day on a Monday! (At least, I don't think it will! I've never actually counted the days between posting the thoughts and actually showing up) The design is good, even if they did apparently catch Tony Pierce in mid-blink. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Ah, the green and gold KC A's. One of the best uni sets ever. ” -jlaz10

“ Ah, the last year that I collected until the early 80s. If you find any that are centered, let me know (just kidding). I remember Rick Monday most from a game when he was with the Dodgers. Two guys ran onto the field and tried to ignite the American flag but had trouble. Monday swooped in and picked it up before they accomplish their sad goal. ” -NJDevils

“ What's not to like. A couple of minor leaguers looking to make it big in the show. From what I remember, Monday had a pretty good run into the mid-80s, while Pierce, I don't recall at all. ” -vrooomed

Set: 1982 Topps (Rate)

Card: #1 Steve Carlton

“ Been a while since we had a card #1 come up as Card of the Day...if ever. Not really a great picture, it makes it look like he does not have a left hand. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ My first true collection of cards. ” -addysdaddy

“ I thought Topps could've used a better photo back in 1982. No hand and no forearm! Although, I guess that's why he was so good, hid the ball effectively. And yes, he was my favorite pitcher while I was growing up. ” -vrooomed

“ A bit "freaky" with them catching him where it looks like his arm has been severed, yet good action shot none the less! A lefty (like myself) and a great one! I've had people tell me over the years that us "lefties" are special...I tell them, although not unhappy to be one, it really is a curse, as we live in a "right handed" world! ” -bkklaos

“ I hate to say this, but...he kind of looks like Jim Abbott in this photo. ” -revnorb

“ He would have been the best pitcher of his time if it were not for Nolan Ryan. ” -deporcoruña

“ Bad action shot. Carlton looks like an amputee. ” -ThemightyOx

“ A little known fact is that the Phillies used maroon in the 80's instead of their standard red. ” -jlaz10

Set: 2000 Bowman (Rate)

Card: #428 Wilfredo Rodriguez

“ Don't see many cards with a gray theme...I like it. I like that the fake autograph is off to the side and not over the picture...I still say it'd be better without it, but at least it's by itself. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ This is what happens when your tryout with the Astros is on the same day you're taking senior pictures ” -jackal726

“ Really nice card. Different, yet in a non-obtrusive way. Back is as good as they get. ” -NJDevils

“ I never understood why or how the Bowman brand became the "Minor League" issue. ” -vrooomed

“ Bowman should have said No Man for this design. Yawn! ” -addysdaddy

Set: 2012 Topps - Game Time Giveaway Die Cut (Rate)

Card: #7 Calvin Johnson

“ Interesting design. It kind of reminds me of an egg. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ My crystal ball says no on this card. ” -addysdaddy

“ When card designers go wild ” -Young Kilo

“ How does this card look in Soda Machine Form? ” -UNC_Samurai

“ Just in time for Easter we have the Calvin Johnson Egg. ” -ThemightyOx

“ Perfect timing with Easter coming up. Really odd write up on the back referencing youtube and espn. ” -NJdevils

“ The Lions uniforms are sleek, but the black is a little extra. ” -jlaz10

“ Best. Easter. Egg. Ever! ” -Vvvergeer

“ Die-cuts never scan as cool as they look in real life, but knowing that I imagine this is a nice card in hand. ” -jackal726

Set: 1988 Kenner Starting Lineup Cards (Rate)

Card: #NNO Tony Gwynn

“ First time I've seen a Starting Lineup card as Card of the Day...I know there are some years not even on the Database yet, finding a checklist is next to impossible, and even when you can, it's for the figures only, not the cards, which some years actually carried a number system. The NBA cards from 1988, the first year, had a blue border where this one is orange. I only have a handful of the 1988 figures, 2 or 3 I think. And I think only one of them came with the card, but I have not scanned mine yet so I have not posted them to the Database. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ There were two versions of Tony Gwynn. This is the skinny Tony. The other version looked like someone had eaten Tony Gwynn. ” -deporcoruña

“ This is what modern looked like in the 80's. I didn't even had to look at the year of release on this one. They even saved a few buck by printing with only one color on the back, but don't get me wrong I like this card. ” -xv3thekid

“ My grandmother was pretty pessimistic whenever the Padres were in a close game, except when Tony Gywnn was due up. And, most of the times, he didn't disappoint. ” -volbox

“ Nice Padres pinstripes. ” -jlaz10
