Random Card of the Day

Set: 1992-93 Topps (Rate)

Card: #299 Litterial Green

“ After losing the NBA license after 1981-82, this was the first Topps set after they got the license back. It also had the first parallel in NBA card history. It was also the first set where Topps listed league leaders in the stats on the back of the cards, something they did until they lost the license during 2009-10. Mr. Green was not a league leader, in fact, he was a rookie so had no league stats, it's hard to spot but there is a gold foil 92 Draft Pick over his left leg. I always liked the Magic pinstripes, they are wearing them as retro jerseys now. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Pinstripes! ” -jlaz10

“ Great back, easy to read. Decent front though I would like a team logo ” -NJDevils

“ I am litterially too impressed with this card of the day. ” -Luckynumber78

“ I'm imagining that he is going up for a dunk and is going to come up way short and fail miserably. ” -Hollywood42

“ no thought, no logo... just keep pumping em out, ppl will buy them ” -SSG Temple

“ Topps Exec: "Hey, I have an idea. Let's use the same exact design for all 4 sports!" Rest of committee: "What a great idea, boss! Wow, why didn't we ever think of that?" I can tell you why - it's boring. Boring as HECK. At least the BACK is a little different. ” -vrooomed

“ Sometimes i wonder where people come up with their kid's names... This Topps set was somewhat uninspiring to me back in the day.. ” -lyfestory

“ This was the card most likely to show up when you thought you finally had a pack with the Shaq Rookie. ” -SYTopps

Set: 2008 Topps Chrome (Rate)

Card: #TC185 Jamaal Charles

“ Really good scan for a Chroma card! Scanning chrome and Finest cards is not something I particularly enjoy, although better than doing mirror foils. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Not a huge fan of the "Rookie Day" poses. If they are going to do poses for football cards, they should go back to the old poses ala '60 Fleer Bill Atkins. Now THERE is a pose! ” -SSG Temple

“ They at least could have put the team name letters in footballs instead of basketballs. My declining interest in football is demonstrated by the fact that I have never heard of this 1000 yd rusher (I had to look that up). ” -NJDevils

“ You feared facing the team that had him in fantasy football this past season (and I had him on none of my three teams)! He was a stud! ” -bkklaos

“ I've always liked how Topps has recently put both their baseball and football sets in the same design. ” -jlaz10

“ I'm a sucker for alternatingly-colored lettering, circa 1959-60...i guess the white letters in the alternatingly colored circles is the modern extension of that. One of the rare card designs of the last 30 years i actually kinda like. ” -revnorb

“ I know this is only 1 card from the set, but I like the 2008 Chrome baseball set much more ” -Hollywood42

Set: 2007 Inkworks Hellboy Sword of Storms (Rate)

Card: #66 The Final Battle

“ Is this this city's rookie card? ” -revnorb

“ Slowly becoming a fan of movie cards... especially ones like this. Love the pic. ” -SSG Temple

“ Not a movie I'd watch, but the skyline shot is kinda cool. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ That is a cool skyline picture! ” -Dixxy

“ Looks like Downtown Detroit after the demons moved in. Didn't realize Hellboy had a set of cards. ” -Mihome316

“ Hellboy = Hellcard ” -NJDevils

“ New York, New York? ” -jlaz10

“ .................................. .......................hahaha....... .................................... ..........Hellboy.........oh dear, what do I know..... ” -SaveDaKid

Set: 2011 Choice Wilmington Blue Rocks (Rate)

Card: #23 Elisaul Pimentel

“ I like the big team name, although the silly-looking "TM" symbol makes things look a bit cheesier than necessary. I'm not sure about the two curvy white areas with the "P" and the "#25" in them, what are those supposed to be, Buckminster Fuller's geodesic domes? ” -revnorb

“ Some of these minor league teams have great names. I like this one's moose logo, although not as much as the Richmond Flying Squirrels! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ "Well as owner of this team AND a decorative gravel company, I say we call the team the Blue Rocks!" ” -DaClyde

“ Very well done front. Give this designer a bonus! ” -NJDevils

“ Nice to have a Blue Rocks card as the Card of the Day. Though I must admit, I only know them because they are a Royals affiliate. Sadly, I have also never heard of this guy, so I need to find out more about him. ” -jupiterhill

“ Nice minor league uni, but its interesting how the contrast sleeves are built in to the body. ” -jlaz10

Set: 2011 Topps Gypsy Queen (Rate)

Card: #198 Jayson Werth

“ I really didn't like the "retro" cards for a long time, but I've done a complete 180 on them. A&G and GQ are two of my favorite lines now. ” -jackal726

“ Gypsy Queen looks best with a coloured border. This looks like the cheap imitation it is, whereas colour masks the vintage (or lack thereof) of these cards. ” -Luckynumber78

“ I never really liked the Nats arched wordmark. Their script one is so much better. ” -jlaz10

“ I know this goes back too far for most of you but to paraphrase Clara Peller: "where's the back, where's the back"? ” -NJDevils

“ Baseball's most over paid player ” -Young Kilo

“ Gypsy Queen...the set where Topps jumped the shark. Every year, I ask myself, why, why, why? ” -flcardtrader

Set: 1992-93 Upper Deck McDonald's (Rate)

Card: #P28 Patrick Ewing

“ Looks like a giant-sized Patrick Ewing landing on the head of a tiny-sized Scott Skiles. This probably resulted in the brain damage that made Skiles think that the Bucks head coaching job was a good idea. ” -revnorb

“ I just finally completed the base set of these this week, although the majority of the regional issues still elude me. Ewing was great in his prime, but at the end, before the Knicks traded him to Seattle, his idea of defense was to stand there and wave his arms at the ball flying over his head, something that a short time previously he would have jumped up and blocked or stolen. It was pretty comical to see. This card was in his prime, when the Knicks were always a contender. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Nice front of card. Action shots in basketball are great because you get to see other players in the photo. The back of the card is not great because I have to twist my wrist to turn it sideways, then if you do that, the number is sideways. ” -NJDevils

“ Patrick Ewing was so good that he would actually give birth to other basketball players! ” -bplay24

“ Patrick Ewing is a BIG man and looks twice the size of the two Magic guys in the paint. ” -flcardtrader

“ If I saw this card from his waist down, I would think this is a volleyball card ” -Hollywood42

“ The Knicks never looked good with black in their color scheme. When you think New York Knicks, you think blue and orange. ” -jlaz10

“ at what point do they just give up when selecting pics to use for cards... at this point, I suppose ” -SSG Temple

Set: 2011 SP Authentic (Rate)

Card: #146 DeMarco Murray

“ Not a bad design, even if it is a college card. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ You should see the "Game-Lost Pants" edition. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ Authentic what? It's a card!!! ” -NJDevils

“ It's interesting how much football uniforms have changed, even in the past 10 years. Today's unis have short, capped-off sleeves, where 10 years ago unis had elastic cuffs. ” -jlaz10

“ What a great back for OU. I miss having him on the team. ” -titanup74

Set: 2003 Marvel Genio (Rate)

Card: #3 The Solar System

“ "It's your problem now" says the Voyager 1 ” -volbox

“ The use of colors and movement on these super hero montages, like the one on the back of this card, are always awsome. ” -xv3thekid

“ Not worth the mouse click. ” -NJDevils

“ I don't know why people throw fits when non-sports cards come up. I personally only collect baseball, but I think it's interesting to see all the other types of cards out there. Variety is the spice of life people! ” -bplay24

“ I don't remember Genio - it must have filled that small gap between the demise of Overpower and the publishing of Marvel Versus. Perhaps it's time the database had a separate category for Collectible/Trading Card Games? ” -UNC_Samurai

“ BOOOO ” -Hollywood42

“ Ooohhh, THAT solar system. ” -jackal726

“ Why? ” -jlaz10

Set: 1981 Kellogg's (Rate)

Card: #32 Cecil Cooper

“ Cecil Cooper, a big bat of his day. Memories of a time when opening a box of cereal was more than breakfast, it was a prize in the box. I like the Kellogg 3-D cards. Jerry ” -sltyeager

“ They couldn't fit his first name on the front? This card would look much better without the fake autograph, and with his first name over his last name on the bottom. The back of the card is good, though. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I like these cards that kids can collect in cereal or some type of giveaway. Kids love getting something for free and it may get them hooked on the hobby. (why only 46 stars when there are 50 states?) ” -NJDevils

Set: 1990-91 Score American (Rate)

Card: #326 Geoff Smith

“ Cool card. Great design, excellent choice of photo, and lots of text on the back (plus a nice scan to boot!) ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I like this set,well priced,nice looking cards & lots of good rookies including Brodeur & Lindros. ” -uncaian

“ Looks like somebody stuck a hockey photo over a Piet Mondrian painting. Either way, more stripes than a Bill Murray movie! ” -revnorb

“ Every time I see the name Geoff I remember that I called Geoff Jenkins "Gee-Off" for years until I actually heard it pronounced correctly. So embarrassing. ” -jackal726

“ The only place I'd remember this guy is from his 1990-91 cards. I wonder how long he played. ” -DanD

“ A nice card overall. Thanks for the little blue hockey player in the bottom right, otherwise I would have thought it was a baseball card. ” -NJDevils
