Set: 1993 Score (Rate)

Card: #269 Pete Young

"Pete Who? Montreal What? Exactly!" -addysdaddy

"Spent parts of two seasons in the majors with Montreal. " -Mike67

"Sorry, but a card without a team logo on the front is just not a card. Such a bland card." -NJDevils

Set: 1982 Topps (Rate)

Card: #603 Richie Hebner

"Derrrrrp. (The card's kinda ugly too in that retro 80s way...)" -wmcduff

"Rich says hurry up, I'm starting to drift away to day dream land" -addysdaddy

"This set is a perfect example of how a facsimile autograph spoils a card design. When I stumble upon the "blackless" variations of 1982 Topps, I always feel they are superior in looks to the common ones." -PlayerPCCollector

Set: 1991 Leaf (Rate)

Card: #192 Darren Daulton

"Daulton seems as bored with the design of this Leaf card as I am." -NJDevils

"I wonder if John Kruk will ever be a sports analyst." -addysdaddy

"Nice card. Serious pose. If I have to nitpick (and I do) I'd say the corners could be a little less ornate. Hopefully someone else knows something about the player." -wmcduff

ps. Happy 4th year anniversary to the site today, thanks everyone! -The Trading Card Database

Set: 1992 Score (Rate)

Card: #662 Eric Show

"Nice 'stache. The Pepto-Bismol pink borders are ironically making me queasy, though." -wmcduff

"It looks like Eric is sticking his glove in front of the blue background to model it. I never did understand the whole 90's motif of having unnecessary "artistic" touches on cards." -Scott Sawyer

"A great pitcher in the 80's for the Padres. He will always be remember for giving up the base hit to Pete Rose in '85. Sad ending to his life when he died from a drug overdose when most of his teammates never knew he was ever using drugs." -addysdaddy

"One of the most unique players of the 1980s. A talent musician, radical right-winger, and, ultimately, a drug addict. Died too young. Autograph collectors got some unusual comments back from him, written over the self-addressed stamped envelope, including "Get the US out of the UN." As for the 1992 Score set design, it was a miss compared to the previous years'. I never cared for cards that took part of the photo and blocked it out with a solid color to create some kind of third rate 3-D effect. Plus, what's that redish purple doing on an Oakland A's card?" -PlayerPCCollector

"Eric Show actually was out of baseball when this card came out as his last game was in 1991. Eric turned to drugs after his retirement and died in 1994 from a heart attack induced from a drug overdose while in rehab." -cynicalbuddha

Set: 1995-96 Ultra (Rate)

Card: #363 Stephane Yelle

"The back of this card quotes then Avalanche head coach Marc Crawford's thoughts about Yelle. Hard to argue with those thoughts as Yelle contributed to 2 Stanley Cup championships during his tenure with Colorado." -Gunny

Wednesday, January 11, 2012

Set: 1991 Upper Deck (Rate)

Card: #131 Merril Hoge

"Out of my way comming thru." -GOLDENEYE

"Way before the ESPN career, there was a pretty decent football player. He nearly died because of two concussions." -addysdaddy

"Apparently an analyst for ESPN now, but a not bad running back for the Steel back in the day." -wmcduff
