Set: 1992 Topps (Rate)

Card: #174 Steve Frey

“ Topps looked like they were tired in 1992 and went with a very simple design. ” -carthage44

“ Bit of an odd design for Topps but it more or less works. ” -koloth42

“ Ouch. ” -Brandon

“ I used to love the uniforms the Expos wore. Iu's amazing that with all the talent they had over he years and they never won anything. ” -biggiofn7

“ How imaginative. Get a picture and put a box around it. Not a good design. ” -baseball cards 2000

“ 90's Topps cards were hard to read. You can just barely make out Expos and even the name is blurry. ” -jlaz10

Set: 1981 Topps (Rate)

Card: #494 Super Bowl XV

“ Wow I used to have this card but got rid of all my football cards in 1985. I wished I had them back! ” -addysdaddy

“ Never liked these Super Bowl 'action' cards. I know Fleer was forced to produced an action set. But Topps had no excuse for this type of card. Even Topps only gave it 3 stars out of a possible 5 right on the card. ” -NJDevils

“ This design was classic! I can't wait until the Topps Heritage set gets up to here! (2030) ” -jlaz10

“ Raiders winning? Well, at least one thing is normal- Eagles are losing!!! ” -Hollywood42

“ Yes kids, the Raiders used to be good. ” -sascards67

“ I always liked the cards that documented the playoffs. Seemed to be mostly a Topps thing. Too bad they stopped. ” -Billy Kingsley

Set: 2008 Topps Sterling (Rate)

Card: #168 Carl Yastrzemski

“ Topps Sterling just doesn't appeal to me. The super-thick cards and the small pictures make a bad combination. ” -sascards67

“ I wish more players would wear stirrups today. I do when I play! ” -jlaz10

“ White border much? ” -Brandon

“ Topps, stick with Bowman Sterling. ” -carthage44

Set: 1992 Classic Four Sport (Rate)

Card: #237 Ricky Greene

“ I always hated these multi-sport sets from Classic. I always viewed them as simply filler material when getting boxes of 200, later 500 mixed commons. (My favorite way to get cards). I don't even know where I put the ones I did get. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Even Ricky is squinting to see what the logo says ” -Hollywood42

“ This card may have been in former collection of baseball. Had cigar box full of them. ” -MsNavyRet24

“ There aren't words to accurately sum up my lack of excitement for this card. ” -koloth42

Set: 1994 Mother's Cookies San Francisco Giants (Rate)

Card: #15 Willie McGee

“ Do we really need such a close up photo of Willie. He was a good player but not a very good looking dude. ” -sascards67

“ I love photo cards. With no borders it reminds me of the days when they had posers of everybody. ” -biggiofn7

“ Mother's Cookies cards? Wow, they made cards for anything back in the early 90's. Can you say overproduction! ” -carthage44

“ Ah the days when you could get baseball cards in everything. In your breakfast cereal, at McDonald's, and even in your cookies. ” -koloth42

“ I like the random guy in the stands in the background, presumably a janitor ” -Hollywood42

“ One of many Mother's Cookies sets- borderless, rounded corners, and featuring the photography of Barry Colla. The gimmick was that on the days the sets were given out at the ballpark, you were given a box with a partial set and doubles that you had to trade with other fans to get you set completed. An interesting sociological experiment, to be sure. ” -PlayerPCCollector

“ He still looks like Droopy the Dog to me. ” -addysdaddy

“ One of the best outfielders of his time. He won Gold Gloves, batting titles, and was 1985 NL MVP. ” -deporcoruña

Set: 1988 Topps Mini Leaders (Rate)

Card: #17 Willie Wilson

“ I was at a Tigers / Royals game in Tiger Stadium when Willie hit a triple. He was the fastest man I have ever seen in person and I have been to a US Olympic Track trial. ” -sascards67

“ Mini leaders? More like mini garbage! ” -carthage44

“ Where do u store these? I put them in the storage boxes yet they slide everywhere. Gives me a mini headache ” -addysdaddy

“ Not a bad design. Too bad Topps didn't place their logo on the white border, as they did with the players name. ” -wamk

“ Willie Wilson... that's fun to say. Willie Wilson...Willie Wilson Willie Wilson Willie Wilson ” -Hollywood42

“ As Topps was and is the leader in innovation, their fading borders of the late 80's became the norm in the mid 90's. ” -jlaz10

Set: 1999 SkyBox Premium (Rate)

Card: #227 David Lundquist

“ A 5th round draft pick in 1993 by the White Sox. Took 7 years before his MLB debut with the Sox in 1999. He spent parts of two seasons with the Padres in 2001 and 2002 and was out of baseball after the 2004 season. Career stats 1-2 record, 7.92 ERA and 32 strikeouts in 37 career games. ” -carthage44

“ A nice looking set from Fleer. This card has an SP variation that apparently includes Lundquist's feet. No wonder I have noted on my wantlist the SPs are 'Hard to tell.' Most people would never know the difference. ” -PlayerPCCollector

“ Not really a fan of these. What's the deal with the cursive font? Is he a fancy rookie? ” -addysdaddy

“ Always found the SkyBox cards hard to read. They did have some cool sets though ” -Hollywood42

“ Rule of thumb, don't change the background of a picture. ” -jlaz10

“ David who? ” -barkley34

Set: 1981 Donruss (Rate)

Card: #420 Tommy Lasorda

“ Pretty weak design if you ask me. I think this was donruss' first set so I can give them a pass. ” -carthage44

“ Well before he needed Slim Fast ” -addysdaddy

“ A VG Tommy Lasorda card? This photo, like the set it's in, was an afterthought. The people who were running Donruss (Memphis, TN) at the time were probably surprised Fleer was able to wrest the MLB license from Topps, and Lasorda was clearly planning his postgame pasta meal when the photog got his attention. ” -PlayerPCCollector

“ i wonder what happened if another player got his hand stuck in his hair. ” -Baserunner3

“ I have a couple of these cards. I like the 3D team name at the bottom and the full card pictures. ” -jlaz10

“ I wish more sets would feature coach/manager cards. At the very least, they could be on the front of team checklists. ” -DanD

“ Tommy! As a Reds fan this is the manager I loved to hate growing up. I know I have some of this set growing up. ” -koloth42

“ I like the Donruss design better than the 81 Fleer but I didn't like the too few stats on the back compared to the Fleer's complete stats. ” -sascards67

Set: 1991 Classic III (Rate)

Card: #20 Chuck Finley

“ I always thought these cards looked like something you'd get in a Happy Meal. ” -socialgarbage

“ This one is such a classic ” -Hollywood42

“ Yucky green border and the image seems to lack full focus. At least some just doesn't look right with the image itself. ” -koloth42

“ seriously... All they did was get a picture and put their name on the card. Anyone one can do that on their regular printer. ” -Baserunner3

“ Looks more like a Christmas card than a Baseball card ” -Young Kilo
