Set: 2003 Fleer Patchworks (Rate)

Card: #44 Pedro Martinez

“ One of the best pitchers of all-time. ” -carthage44

“ Nice looking card. I like the way that Fleer, in its latter years, had the year beneath the Fleer logo on the back. Always makes sets easier to identify without looking for a copyright date in the small print. ” -switzr1

“ First ballot Hall of Famer ” -Young Kilo

“ Remember when Pedro grabbed Don Zimmer by the head and gently dumped him on the ground when Zimmer charged the mound? Well... Pepperidge Farm remembers. ” -Id8jlb8666

“ The good days of Boston baseball. ” -jlaz10

Set: 1952 Bowman (Rate)

Card: #24 Carl Furillo

“ Very cool even with the crease and worn corners. It gives this vintage card some real character. ” -carthage44

“ Love the vintage stuff. This is no exception. I'll even overlook the lack of stats, as that wasn't the practice yet. ” -vrooomed

“ This is an instance where a signature on the front works well. Furillo is easily identified by all while maintaining the intended design of the card. ” -switzr1

“ Here's a question for those more knowledgeable than I : is this card standard size, or slightly larger? I think it is slightly larger. I just got some 1950s Bowman non-sports cards (1952 US Presidents and 1954 US Navy Victories) earlier this month and they are both slight larger. The US Presidents set even uses the same design as this card essentially, the only difference being a nameplate on the front. Also, it looks like he's playing baseball in a train station. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Nothing like the Vintage cards! ” -BOBSCARDZ

“ Nice card, I really like the wrapper redemption offer on the back. ” -jackal726

“ Sweet! Love the old...(...er than me) stuff! ” -bkklaos

“ Wonderful card. Wish I had a few. Love the stadium in the background ” -NJdevils

“ Brooklyn Dodgers. 'Nuf said. ” -jlaz10

Set: 1994-95 Ultra (Rate)

Card: #30 Will Perdue

“ As a Bulls fan, Purdue was the MAN! Not a very athletic big man but served his purpose during the Bulls first three championships. ” -carthage44

“ Not a very good scan...the real card does not have those vertical lines through it. It's also much brighter. Despite winning multiple championships with the Bulls, Perdue is mostly known as the player the Bulls traded to the Spurs to get Dennis Rodman. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ With the appearance of the hair and left side of the face of Patrick Ewing. ” -JimStaub

“ Can the Bulls please bring back their early '80s "Chicago" script? ” -jlaz10

Set: 2008 Upper Deck Icons (Rate)

Card: #30 Champ Bailey

“ One of my favorite sets of all-time! Also, one of the best "bang for your buck" boxes that you could purchase. For about $50-$60 per box you would get two jersey cards, one autograph and two lettermen patch cards with a chance of getting an auto lettermen. ” -carthage44

“ Interesting texture design. I like it. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Nice, solid card. Hits all required points...Team logo, short narrative, stats... My preference is to have a borders though.. ” -SSG Temple

“ Don't like the card design, don't like the picture angle. ” -CluelessJoe

“ The front design is some kinda of nice but I think the picture of the player ain't using enough space on the card. ” -JimStaub

“ The Broncos road uni set is still too navy-heavy in relation to their orange home uniform. ” -jlaz10

“ This is an ugly card ! ” -uncaian

“ Hey I've been off the site for a few months with a move to a new town...came back just in time to catch one of my scans! Sweet! ” -bkklaos

Set: 1994 SP (Rate)

Card: #115 Clyde Simmons

“ SP used to be the "Gems" of the mid 90's. ” -carthage44

“ I like the design. Not one I've seen before, usually they used the SP designs in all sports, but not this one. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Front looks like he is one of those car crushers with the wall closing in on him. Or the garbage disposal in Star Wars. Again, which Cardinals team please? Phoenix, Arizona... ” -NJDevils

“ The Cards had some nice uniforms, especially with their state flag stripes. Their NFL 75th anniversary unis on the back were not so nice. ” -jlaz10

Set: 1966 O-Pee-Chee (Rate)

Card: #140 Jim Maloney

“ OPC, but no French. Still, love these, and would love to have a complete set of OPC from ANY year (pre-1990). ” -vrooomed

“ Jim and Astros P Don Wilson pitched back-to-back no-nos in 1969 at Crosby Field. ” -BOBSCARDZ

“ In my lifetime (since 1974), only Carlton, Gooden, Smoltz, and R. Johnson have had a higher wins total in the NL than Maloney's 23 in 1963. But he tied for 3rd that year behind Koufax and Marichal. I wouldn't mind seeing Maloney in a Heritage or Archives set. Other than buybacks, he hasn't been on a card since 2001. And there are a LOT of sets that include retired players. ” -switzr1

“ I absolutely love the diagonal stripe with the team name on the top left of the card. CLASSIC!!! ” -carthage44

“ The Reds had some beautiful vests. Interestingly enough, their player names were underneath the numbers on the back. ” -jlaz10

Set: 2004 Ultra (Rate)

Card: #245 Pokey Reese

“ Really like this design. Could have used some biography though. Especially for the second year players in the set! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ The Sox old road script was a little too round for my liking. Their new roads are much better. ” -jlaz10

“ Pokey's final stop was Boston during his 8 year MLB career. ” -carthage44

“ Nice scan considering the foil on the front. ” -vrooomed

“ I was called Pokey as a kid. I'm guessing not for the same reason he's called Pokey. ” -midbellman

Set: 1992-93 Parkhurst - Emerald Ice (Rate)

Card: #203 Al Iafrate

“ Cool card. I like the green foil, and the logo is embossed enough to see it through the card- cool. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Emerald Ice sounds pretty cool! ” -carthage44

“ The Caps had some beautiful sweaters. They tried to bring it back, but the Edge stripes just don't work. ” -jlaz10

“ I really liked the look of these cards when they first came out. Not much of a hockey fan though ” -Mike67

“ Ah, the Emerald Ice - the only difference was a patch of green foil on the front. What a great parallel. :( ” -vrooomed

Set: 1993 Ultra (Rate)

Card: #160 Gary DiSarcina

“ Curbstomp! ” -Id8jlb8666

“ I really liked this design theme for Ultra- they used the same theme the first two years for the NBA. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Ultra tried their best to be the "Gem" of the early 90's sports cards. ” -carthage44

“ That looks like it's going to end painfully ! Merry Christmas everybody ! ” -uncaian

“ Nice action shot. If I squint it looks like he's about to be taken out by a comet. ” -jackal726

“ I felt sorry for Gary at first, I mean a flaming baseball is headed straight to his back, but then I saw he's giving a curb stomp to the other team, so maybe he deserves it. ” -jupiterhill

“ "Use me as a stepping stone" said by Mickey Tettleton. ” -JimStaub

“ The Angels late '80s-early '90s look is underrated. Despite it's obvious pullover undertones, you can never go wrong with anything red and navy. ” -jlaz10

“ Boot to the head! ” -cynicalbuddha

“ Just a horrible back. One photo on the front is plenty. ” -NJdevils

“ Doing push-ups with someone standing on your neck seems like something Greg Jennings would do in a deodorant commercial. ” -revnorb

“ Nice photography, decent layout (for the few stats). ” -vrooomed
