Set: 2002 Fleer (Rate)

Card: #474 Rondell White

“ Not one of Fleer's better designs...not that it's bad, but they did better, much better. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Hey Fleer, did you spend even 2 minutes on this "design"? ” -wamk

“ I've seen better backgrounds on youth soccer photos. ” -NJDevils

“ I'd say he's standing still... but that could just be me. ” -Dixxy

“ what was fleer thinking? instead of Changing Places maybe they should have been thinking "Change Card Design!" ” -tonym

“ Usually I don't like fake backgrounds, but the fact that the dots are the color of the Yankees makes this one okay. ” -jlaz10

“ Constantly changing places since '99 Montreal Expos (2000) Chicago Cubs (2000–2001) New York Yankees (2002) San Diego Padres (2003) Kansas City Royals (2003) Detroit Tigers (2004–2005) Minnesota Twins (2006–2007) probably, i mean, maybe because he used steroids... ” -SaveDaKid

Set: 1989 ProCards (Rate)

Card: #334 Jason Maas

“ At the time, this would have been my most local baseball team, but it no longer is. Kind of a moot point though as I don't do Baseball. Design is solid...nice big pictures, the relevent information to the card on the bottom right. The only change I would make would have been making the team logo larger, there's a lot of unused white space there. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Ain't he suppose to be Kevin Mass? ” -Young Kilo

“ Did the Yankees get a BOGO on the Maas family in the late 80's or is this actually Kevin Maas? ” -flcardtrader

“ Old minor league cards were the best. Simple, yet to the point. ” -jlaz10

“ Kevin's brother? ” -suomibear8

“ Combining 2 of my least favorites: ProCards, and the Yankees ” -Hollywood42

Set: 1991 Stadium Club (Rate)

Card: #297 Tom Brunansky

“ Nice big clear image. When I was younger I never noticed how Topps tended to favor that sort of image in the Stadium Club brand, only realizing it later... ” -Billy Kingsley

“ 25 years after his trade to St. Louis, Brunansky returns to the Minnesota Twins this year as a batting coach. Bruno was runner-up in the very first home run derby in 1985. ” -bplay24

“ I'll trade you my duplicate of this for a Lee Smith. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ It's amazing how much BP jersey technology has changed. 20 years ago mesh pullovers were the norm, but now it's CoolBase button-ups. ” -jlaz10

Set: 2009 Upper Deck Goudey (Rate)

Card: #169 Conor Gillaspie

“ This set was better received than 2008 Comic Sans, which almost resulted in the Upper Deck offices being burned by an angry mob. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ WOW! A 2009 Goudey! Must be worth a couple hundred. ” -NJDevils

“ Why so serious? ” -dudeidontcare

“ Goudey isn't a bad set, but it never really got a lot of people hooked ” -Hollywood42

“ Interesting how the Giants uniform is white when it shold be cream. ” -jlaz10

“ Is it me or is a SF cap on a Goudey card just illogical? If you are going to do Goudey, wouldn't you want it in a throwback? ” -flcardtrader

Set: 1995 Leaf (Rate)

Card: #25 Mark Wohlers

“ I had a note with something clever to say, but Jim Leyritz shredded it. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ It's funny how Leaf was a complete failure, while it's subsidiary Donruss was pretty good. ” -jlaz10

“ How sweet! He's lost in his own eyes. ” -DanD

Set: 1983-84 O-Pee-Chee (Rate)

Card: #329 Dave Farrish

“ The early 80s when O-Pee-Chee had to carry the banner for hockey cards because those knuckleheads at Topps quit making them for a few years. I am so happy Topps no longer does hockey. ” -Gunny

“ I've been around real maple trees forever, and I'm familiar with Canada's flag...shouldn't the uniform be red and white, not blue and white? ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I've always found it odd how the Maple Leafs wear blue when an actual maple leaf is reddish. ” -jlaz10

“ Farrish usually comes out on top... by a fraction. It's not enough to complain about, though, so it must still be fair? ” -Dixxy

“ Whenever they show a Leafs card (like this one), I'm embarrased to say I don't own it. Farrish is now an assistant coach to Randy Carlyle in Toronto. ” -DanD

Set: 1993 Studio (Rate)

Card: #51 Darren Daulton

“ That's one big P. Goes with the big mullet. Interesting card, not a particularly good design, but interesting! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I loved this set. ” -Mike67

“ Darren's having an out-of-body experience. "Dude, where'd this giant ball cap come from?!?" ” -UNC_Samurai

“ I always liked this year of Studio with the facsimile auto and full bleed design. ” -suomibear8

“ I think this design is pretty neat. ” -Colts12

“ Part of my initial attraction to MLB was the logos and uniforms. This was probably my favorite set in 1993 because of the closeup of the hat logos in the background. ” -duaned99

“ Mullet. Doesn't matter if the card design is nice or not, I can't stop staring at the mullet. I feel like Austin Powers and the Mole. ” -wamk

“ I love his signature! Oh wait, you can't tell! White on white? Awesome idea, Studio ” -Hollywood42

“ I wonder what team he's on. ” -jlaz10

“ How about the back of the Random Card of the Day for a change? After all, it's half the card. Some backs are great, others are horrid. ” -NJDevils

“ They call him "Daulton". Great era for the Phils, didn't care for Studio. ” -tonym

Set: 1997 Pacific Philadelphia (Rate)

Card: #326 Steve Young

“ Overall card design : Meh. Don't really like this design much at all...and I can't tell if the passing title he won was 1990 or 1996? I'm guessing the latter based on the date of issue and the Pacific logo, but it's not really clear. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I don't really care for this one. Good player. ” -Colts12

“ Pacific got goofy during the mid- to late-1990s. I'm surprised when I come across these cards in my collection and they're not shaped like crowns, or giant fold-outs. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ Steve young...whatever. Trent Dilfer quarterbacked a Super Bowl winner as well. Keep crying Young, you're no Montana and never will be seen as such. ” -SSG Temple

“ If your gonna make a set for Philadelphia, at least have the players in that set have a relation to the city! ” -jlaz10

“ Always thought filling Joe's shoes was going to be difficult, but well done Steve! ” -tonym

“ Giddiap Cowboy! The saloon's got your wanted poster up. Time to pass a fumble and skip town bucky! ” -Dixxy

Set: 1992-93 Upper Deck (Rate)

Card: #229 Jakob Karlsson

“ Something seems weird here ” -Hollywood42

“ I really like how the old Upper Deck cards had large pictures. What happened? ” -jlaz10

“ Maybe if Sidney Crosby wore one of those face shields he wouldn't have gotten his teeth knocked out. ” -bigsmooth

“ why does it look to me like this guy is playing electric guitar..... ” -flcardtrader

“ Quality card. Nice to see UD gave some coverage to the rest of the world of hockey besides the NHL. Wish they had done that sort of thing for the sports I collect! ” -Billy Kingsley

Set: 2004 Topps (Rate)

Card: #461 Brad Lidge

“ Not a bad design, but not a great one either. I do like it much better than the 2005 design with which I constantly mistake it for. The period between 2004-2007 seemed like the Topps design department really had no direction. ” -socialgarbage

“ Nice big image, decent overall design. The only thing I don't like is the player's number in the lower left.. ” -wamk

“ Surprisingly I only have one card from this set. ” -jlaz10

“ Very simple. Topps has always been good at K.I.S.S. Keep it simple, stupid. ” -Dixxy

“ This design looks very much inspired by the 70s and 80s Topps designs, and that's a good thing. It would have been better though if the image was squared, and didn't have that tiny line drawing version of the player on the bottom left...it doesn't really add anything and even kind of detracts from the card. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ A good card for the modern era. Topps kept is simple and made a nice card. ” -NJDevils

“ Thats a good design. I never had any though. ” -Colts12
