Set: 1994 Donruss (Rate)

Card: #302 Doug Strange

“ Love that proto-typical line drive to center batting pose as the batter is making his way out of the box. ” -flcardtrader

“ Unlike most of my tradingcarddb brethren, I like a lot of mid-1990s designs, and this is one of them. It's got the logo, great full-bleed photography, and a big photo on the back. (I haven't relied on backs of cards for stats since before they invented this little thing called the Internet.) ” -PlayerPCCollector

“ Nice design. Large, clear pictures are good. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ No one remembers your name, when you're Strange, when you're Strange, you're Doug Straaaaange... ” -UNC_Samurai

He has also won two gold medals with Team Canada in 2010 in Vancouver and 2014 in Sochi. ” -carthage44

“ Kind of interesting to see Sid wearing the "A" instead of the "C" on his sweater. Speaking of sweaters, I always liked how this version made use of the skating penguin and the pigeon-like penguin on the shoulders. ” -Gunny

“ I'm whinner my mommy says I'm special.....I won the cup even though so that makes me a winner.....wah.....wah....I have more Stanley Cup titles than Eric Lindros my idol of being the biggest whinner in NHL history ” -I HATE CROSBY

“ Interesting that they include a pronunciation chart on the back of the card. Some players have complex names that aren't pronounced as they are written so I could see that being very handy. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Looks like he's skating thru the halls of the rebel ship that Darth Vader and the stormtroopers board in the opening scene of Star Wars. ” -revnorb

“ SidDaKid ” -SaveDaKid

“ I hate this guys guts. ” -jlaz10

Set: 1993 Finish Line NHRA - Speedways (Rate)

Card: #T10 Saniar Int'l Dragway

“ Off the top of my head this is the first drag racing card to ever make Card of the Day! As is pretty well known, I love auto racing...but I never really got into drag racing, despite the fact that my father did it, albeit before I was born. I prefer my races to last longer than 15 seconds, I suppose. I do watch it several times a year, and have a decent sized stash of cards and a small sized collection of 1/64 diecast replicas, however. As for the card itself, this was a great idea for an insert. I wish it had caught on, as tracks have changed a lot since 1993. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Looks like an airport. ” -jlaz10

“ It appears Score is now the hockey equivalent of the NBA's Hoops release? I like the design on this one, both front and back. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Thisis a pretty nice set.It's a shame Panini won't be doing anymore hockey.Palat had a pretty decent first year with T.B. ” -uncaian

“ These must have been very cool back in the day when the space program was in full swing! ” -carthage44

“ This set is awesome. I wish I had some! I love the 50s and 60s theories on what it would be like in the future. Still waiting on moon vacations. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Not that I didn't love your past CotD selections, but surely you can't take "heat" for this card...SWEET! ” -bkklaos

Set: 2005 Topps Wacky Packages All-New Series 2 (Rate)

Card: #34 Punchables

“ Speechless, do people actually buy these? ” -carthage44

“ (after browsing the rest of the set) I'd put this one in the trash, no questions asked. ” -volbox

“ I sense the 50's, 60's, and 70's making a comeback with their phoney funnies and puzzle back connections now... "All new series..." Saw it over 30 years ago, Topps. Thanks for playing!!! Besides that... COOL CARD and I WANT THE SET!!!! ” -Dixxy

“ I have no idea why these are popular...or even exist. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ If you're a child of the 70s, like I am, you know the impact Wacky Packages had back in the day. There has never been a non-sport issue- not Garbage Pail Kids, not Mars Attacks, not Star Wars- that caused such a commotion with kids. When each new series came out, it was like a holiday in my hometown of Garwood, NJ. In fact, Wacky Packages OUTSOLD baseball cards for a good portion of their 1973-75 run. This sticker (yes, they're stickers, and there wasn't a stop sign or school desk back in the day that wasn't adorned with a Wacky Pack) is part of the new run which began in 2004. And yes, my kids collected them- in spite of the fact I could never get them into collecting baseball cards long-term. ” -PlayerPCCollector

“ Wow...I thought you were baseball, baseball, and baseball! Glad to see you branching out and I love it! Cheers! ” -bkklaos

“ I remember these! ” -jlaz10

“ There are no words.... ” -suomibear8

Set: 1990 Cal League (Rate)

Card: #158 Joseph Ortiz

“ Are we sure this isn't the Alctraz League set release? ” -addysdaddy

“ Obviously an A's affiliate by their use of green and gold. ” -jlaz10

“ While we're at it, his cards are listed under "Joe Ortiz", which should be separated from the post-2010 minor league pitcher Joe Ortiz. ” -volbox

“ Ortiz was drafted by the Brewers in the 8th round during the 1987 MLB Draft. He also played in the Athletics minor league system never reaching higher than High A ball. Career Minor League stats: 534 At Bats, .236 Average, 4 Home Runs and 58 RBI. After playing only 7 games in 1990 with the Modesto A's, he was cut and his baseball career was over. ” -carthage44

Set: 1980 Topps (Rate)

Card: #217 Ed Halicki

“ Love the cartoons on the backs of some of these older Topps sets. This set came out the year before I began collecting. ” -switzr1

“ The card front is not bad, but I really like the card back. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ The golden age of card back writing - he "victimized" the Mets. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ Love the topps early 80s releases. Takes me back to grass cutting to buy these gems as a boy. ” -addysdaddy

“ Halicki played from 1974-1980 with the Giants and California Angels. Career Stats: 55 Wins, 66 Losses, 3.62 ERA and 707 Strikeouts. He is most famous for throwing a no-hitter against the Mets on August 24, 1975. ” -carthage44

“ I love the simplicity of the 80's designs. 1980 was a great design year. ” -suomibear8

“ If only the Giants threw back to these beauties. ” -jlaz10
