Set: 1988 Pacific Eight Men Out (Rate)

Card: #20 C'mon Betsy

“ I worked with a guy who was in this movie. At the very beginning, you can see him running down the first base line, trying to beat out a throw. He also helped many of the actors learn how to play baseball like a pro. What made him so qualified to do this? His dad is/was Ron Santo! Much later on, Jeff (the guy I worked with) wound up filming a documentary of his Dad called "This Old Cub". If you haven't seen it, I highly recommend it.. ” -wamk

“ Shoeless Joe with a clean uniform? Yeah right! ” -suomibear8

“ Jersey and card design make this card look a lot older than it really is ” -Hollywood42

“ Of course Pacific made cards for a movie. ” -jlaz10

“ Why bother? ” -NJDevils

“ Ha makes me laugh I DO NOT like that card. C'moan Betsy ” -Colts12

Set: 2008 Upper Deck Baseball Heroes (Rate)

Card: #123 Roger Clemens

“ Once again, I disliked the Baseball Heroes back in the early 90's and disliked them even more in the late 2000's. ” -carthage44

“ Too much of the card taken up with background for my liking. ” -koloth42

“ I wouldn't necessarily call Clemens a hero. As a Red Sox fan, anyone who leaves the Sox and in any way is affiliated with the Yankees is hated. ” -jlaz10

“ Hero because of substance use? ” -Hollywood42

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
