Random Card of the Day

Set: 2013 Topps - Wal-Mart Blue Border (Rate)

Card: #109 Kirk Nieuwenhuis

“ If he stopped playing Twister maybe he could get the BA over .256 ” -NJDevils

“ Interesting, this card comes up to write about on the same day a card with a blue border is featured as Card of the Day. This one, however, is a parallel whereas the other is a base card. I like this kind of parallel. It's different enough to be easily noticeable, yet not really silly or bizzare, although the argument could be made that the entire concept of parallels is silly, I like them. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ What yoga position is this? ” -DaClyde

“ Another gimmick to give collectors the illusion of value when they buy packs at Wal-Mart. Of course, it makes it that much harder to collect a base set, but in this day and age, I guess, who's collecting the base set? ” -PlayerPCCollector

“ The Mets should have never, ever, ever used black. Ever. ” -jlaz10

Set: 1994 Classic Best West Palm Beach Expos (Rate)

Card: #21 Scott Pisciotta

“ Excellent card design and excellent scan! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ If I'm catching games in a similar local in retirement, things went as planned...one can only dream! ” -bkklaos

“ I enjoy the cookies that were named after this guy, when I have a cup of coffee. ” -wamk

“ WPB Expos played at Hank Aaron Field right off Palm Beach Lakes Blvd...right outside the stadium was the WPB Auditorium....saw the Grateful Dead there in 82 and Blue Oyster Cult/Ted Nugent there in 84....what used to be the stadium is a Target now...good times! ” -flcardtrader

Set: 2013 Topps MLS (Rate)

Card: #24 Brandon McDonald

“ It's like some kind of quiz where they challenge you to try and find the hidden player name, the hidden team name, and the player's position in under five minutes. DANG! I was so close. ” -revnorb

“ As we're moving to the DC area in a couple of months, I'll have to add this team to the sports viewing agenda down the road! "Go United" doesn't seem to have the same punch as "Go Hogs" though! ” -bkklaos

“ I must say that I was very impressed with Topps first effort in MLS. Nice simple fronts with great photos and nice inserts make this set one of the most appealing soccer sets for me. ” -Gunny

“ Is it snowing? ” -vrooomed

“ Are they playing in the snow or just a dusty scanner tray? If the former, that is awesome! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ This looks like a nice set. Too bad I can't find any soccer cards at any local stores. ” -jupiterhill

“ Wow that's loud. Too much activity on this card making my eyes hurt ” -Dixxy

“ Now that is an action shot! ” -jackal726

“ I wonder who made these kits??? ” -jlaz10

Set: 2004 Topps Traded & Rookies - Chrome (Rate)

Card: #T183 Juan Gutierrez

“ Foil, chrome whatever you want to call them just don't scan well. ” -thesemers

“ Nice set. I like the little outline by the player's number that is an image of the actual photo. Throwback of sorts to the 1973 and 1976 sets, but now they are customized. Clear name, position, and team logo on the front. Team name is big and bold. And the backs are typical Topps backs. (That's actually a good thing.) ” -vrooomed

“ Yet another parallel set to super saturate the hobby. Has no one else had enough of these? ” -addysdaddy

“ I wish Chrome cards scanned better, they always look great in person, but scans...not so much. At least they don't scan as bad as some foils. The card has an overall excellent design and quality action photo. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I'm glad I'm not the only one that ends up with ugly Chrome scans ” -jackal726

“ I've always liked Topps Chrome. Although it does get scratched easily. ” -jlaz10

Set: 2009 TriStar TNA Impact (Rate)

Card: #5 Bobby Lashley

“ That's the best picture they could come up with for the front of the card? ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Dose pecs doe ” -jlaz10

“ So, they even make men's fashion show cards now? ” -PMB

Set: 2004 Upper Deck Entertainment DC VS System Superman: Man of Steel (Rate)

Card: #DSM-084 Silver Banshee, Siobhan McDougal

“ Pretty weak Graphics for a TCG ” -SSG Temple

“ Not a fan of playing cards but at least it's DC. Kind of an obscure character, at least by 2004. She could kill people if she knew their true name combined with the magic sonics of her scream. I was a DC reader from literally 5 days old until 2011. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ lol. Just lol. ” -Dixxy

“ About 100 mother in law jokes just popped into my little head . ” -uncaian

Set: 1952 Red Man (Rate)

Card: #AL23 Ted Williams

“ Sweet!!! I'd trade my entire collection for a mint one of these! Boy would that make my wife happy! ” -bkklaos

“ Nice card! ” -uncaian

“ Whose collection WOULDN'T benefit from having this added to it? ” -vrooomed

“ Big card...things were different in the 1950s...I remember when he passed away and the controversy surrounding that. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ For the youngsters out there, that's Red Man chewing tobacco. And as Walt Garrison always said "just put a pinch between your cheek and gum". Great advice, Walt. ” -NJdevils

“ I read the back and the first thing that pops into my head is family guy. "Smoke!" ” -Dixxy

“ Great old Red Sox B on his cap. ” -jlaz10

Set: 2001-02 Topps (Rate)

Card: #118 Brad Stuart

“ Not sure why Topps went on a color kick for a few years there. 1999-00 was orange, then purple and then blue, then back to the tradition white borders. (For the NBA at least) I kind of liked it at the time, but now that I am scanning them, I like the white borders better- don't show off the dust and scuzz that invariably gets trapped on the bottom of the scanner's glass tray. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I can see he plays for the Sharks and I'm guessing his name is Sunoco because I can't tell what it is. ” -NJDevils

“ Nice early card of a future HHOFer. ” -vrooomed

“ These Sharks unis were too Nike-ified. Hockey is the only sport where sweaters should stay the same, forever. ” -jlaz10

“ I really liked this set & the inserts. ” -uncaian

“ Never was a big fan of the Topps/OPC dual version. If you're going to make 2 different brands, make them look different. What's even worse is the OPC parallel in Topps products. Is that really necessary? There's already enough confusion with parallels... ” -suomibear8

Set: 1967 Topps (Rate)

Card: #542 Rick Monday / Tony Pierce

“ Too bad this card is not going to come up as Card of the Day on a Monday! (At least, I don't think it will! I've never actually counted the days between posting the thoughts and actually showing up) The design is good, even if they did apparently catch Tony Pierce in mid-blink. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Ah, the green and gold KC A's. One of the best uni sets ever. ” -jlaz10

“ Ah, the last year that I collected until the early 80s. If you find any that are centered, let me know (just kidding). I remember Rick Monday most from a game when he was with the Dodgers. Two guys ran onto the field and tried to ignite the American flag but had trouble. Monday swooped in and picked it up before they accomplish their sad goal. ” -NJDevils

“ What's not to like. A couple of minor leaguers looking to make it big in the show. From what I remember, Monday had a pretty good run into the mid-80s, while Pierce, I don't recall at all. ” -vrooomed

“ Yooooooooooouuuuuuuuuuuuuuukkkkkkkk!!!!!!!!!! ” -jlaz10
