Set: 1992 Topps Magazine (Rate)

Card: #96 John Kruk

“ I loved these cards out of the magazine.. Only problem was cutting them out.. ” -Mike67

“ Purple? No, no, and no. Not for any baseball team - before the Rockies came into the league. The back is just awful. Too much border on the front. A shame it's one of my players. ” -vrooomed

“ I remember getting a few of those Topps Magazines back in the day.. always enjoyed the cheap cards included.. ” -lyfestory

“ That's a whole lotta pink. The text on the card back is interesting...I bet this guy got tired of all the people commenting on his weight...even Topps makes several jokes about it in the text. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Kind of looks like they took some advice from pro set about color... Reminds me of the Ugly '92 Dinosaurs set I scanned in not all that long ago... Gotta say....... Ew. ” -Dixxy

“ Even though this card is more than 20 years old, it's still the same Phillies uniform as today. ” -jlaz10

“ I think this was Topps attempt to see if they could produce worse designs than SI for Kids. They succeeded. ” -DaClyde

“ I didn't even know they had a Topps Magazine. Reminds me of some cards inserted into Tuff Stuff magazine that I can't find a list for on here. ” -jupiterhill

“ Despite the horrible background color, I do like the simplicity of the front of the card. I love how on the back they describe Kruk as "well-rounded." Just reading what was written about him is funny. ” -yokonashiwa

Set: 2009 Topps (Rate)

Card: #457 John Maine

“ Not a fan of the 2009 Topps. After strong sets in 2004 and 2005, Topps really went downhill in set design, until a decent 2010 and a really sharp-looking 2011 pulled them out. ” -Luckynumber78

“ The Mets look so much better without black. ” -jlaz10

“ Can't read the name,bland design, lousy photo. That's 3 strikes for the front. The back is much better. ” -NJDevils

“ Relatively nice set by Topps, pretty normal for their standards in these sets.. I like the color matching for the most part.. ” -lyfestory

Set: 1991 O-Pee-Chee Premier (Rate)

Card: #121 Frank Thomas

“ Once upon a time this was a super awesome card to own. It's still pretty rad actually. ” -ray fosse's ghost

“ Pretty nice set from when sets were over-produced.. ” -lyfestory

“ Nice of them to put 4 stats on the backs. This is a basbeball card, the back should be stat city. ” -NJDevils

“ Man was a beast in his prime, hopefully he won't be tied into the steroid era... ” -SaveDaKid

“ Pinstripes work for the ChiSox. ” -jlaz10

“ Frank Thomas played with a lot of heart, but he sure doesn't look like he wants to be here in this picture. ” -Luckynumber78

Set: 1989 Broder Baseball's Hottest Stars (unlicensed) (Rate)

Card: #9 Will Clark

“ Had never heard of this set so I looked it up. Apparently "broder" is a generic name for unlicensed/counterfeit cards. No one is sure who produced these but apparently a bunch of similar card sets cropped up during this era. ” -ThemightyOx

“ The only picture they could get was him sitting on the bench? It would have been ironiclly funny if this was the peak of his career, but it looks like, based on what he got card wise over the ensuing years he had a pretty good career. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Did the photographer have to sneak this pic ? ” -uncaian

“ And to think, people actually would pay REAL money for junk like this! Terrible photograph and not licensed. Who actually looked at this and said, "Yeah, it looks good. Let's print it." There's a good reason Broder became the "generic" term for junky, unauthorized card. ” -vrooomed

“ Get rid of the blur on the side and center it better and it would be a really cool card ” -Hollywood42

“ Looks like the photographer was being pulled away by security while taking that pic. ” -DanD

“ Hmmm... Looks like somebody didn't get an MLB license. ” -jlaz10

“ I have to say, what a bad picture. ” -Dixxy

“ Hehe, it's the first time I see a card of a benchwarmer in action. ” -PMB

Set: 2008 Inkworks Journey to Center Earth (Rate)

Card: #25 Key to the Past

“ When I saw this set getting posted to the Database, I was very surprised...I had no idea they issued a card set for this movie. The movie itself was not bad...I saw it a few years after it's release. I would watch it again. The 3D aspect of the card doesn't work for me, but then again 3D never works. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ 566,108 cards with images on the site and we get Bill and Ted and Journey to the Center of the Earth back to back? ” -ThemightyOx

“ Yawn.... Another movie card. Is it just me, or do others find these movie cards boring? ” -vrooomed

“ STOPPPPPPPPP ” -Hollywood42

“ OMG ” -jlaz10

“ Guess they really will make cards of just about anything. Great movie, but horrible card. It looks blurry in the background because of the attempt to make it 3D looking. ” -yokonashiwa

“ Wow. I never knew anyone ever expected this movie to be a hit. If they made a card set for it, though, someone must have. ” -Luckynumber78

Set: 1991 Pro Set Bill & Ted (Rate)

Card: #51 Thomas Edison, Johann Sebastian Bach, S

“ Uh yeah, ok. ” -Young Kilo

“ Pro set seriously had their fingers everywhere... never seen nor heard much about this ...show? Seems strange enough for me.... I'll look for it on Netflix now and educate myself I think ” -Dixxy

“ Bogus is right ” -uncaian

“ Glad I never came across this set until now. 100 years from now this may be worth money, so hang onto if for your grandchildren's grandchildren ” -NJDevils

“ Maybe if I had seen the movie.... ” -vrooomed

“ I liked the first movie better. Although someone scanned and posted the entire set before I could, this was one of the first sets I ever completed. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I think I preferred the horse card.... ” -ThemightyOx

“ Is that LMFAO? ” -jlaz10

Set: 2002 Bowman (Rate)

Card: #68 Tim Hudson

“ With the white fade at the bottom, it makes it look like he's jumping or perhaps even flying :) ” -Billy Kingsley

“ He looks like he's dancing like a Jet from West Side Story. ” -deporcoruña

“ Huddy! Thanks for giving the A's so many good years. ” -ray fosse's ghost

“ 1985 Donruss called. It wants its design back. ” -vrooomed

“ Tough to read anything on this card. Back is a mish-mash of half finished ideas. ” -NJDevils

“ Green and gold don't necessarily make the best unis, but the A's work it. ” -jlaz10

“ Not one of Bowman's finest, thats for sure.. the borders are not attractive.. I don't mind the backs, good information there in most cases... ” -lyfestory

Set: 1989 Best San Antonio Missions (Rate)

Card: #15 Luis Lopez

“ The San Antonio Missions? Great team name. Love the use of the Alamo for the logo, of course they had to with Missions in the name. Great pose and nice picture. Like the close up for the back. This is a great looking card for being a Minor League card and not a well known card company. ” -yokonashiwa

“ Minor League Card! The colors of this one are reminisent to the failed local team in my home town of Anderson, IN from the mid-90s. That team with the yellow and light blue was the Anderson Lawmen. It is always fun to see cards for these teams. ” -koloth42

“ There was/is really a team calends the Missions? ” -wamk

“ I would prefer it if he was called Luis. But looks like he was born in Brooklyn so I guess we have to go with "Louie". oh yeah, not a bad minor league card ” -NJDevils

“ A lot of these baseball cards of late aren't leaving s lot of options to poke fun at them. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ This is better-than-average photography for a minor league card, but couldn't they have had him pose anywhere near a plate? Anyone can swing for the fences from the pitcher's mound! ” -Luckynumber78

“ I gave the picture for this card! A nice minor league uniform for the era. ” -jlaz10

Set: 2004 Upper Deck MLS (Rate)

Card: #10 John Spencer

“ Interesting to see this design used on the main UD set for this sport. It's very similar to the inserts in 2003-04 Finite for the NBA. At least, that's the first thing I thought when I saw it...especially the back of the card. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ This used to be my favorate UD soocer set, but over the years I've liked it less and less. The back is awfull. It would be better if they just put the info in a streight line. ” -deporcoruña

“ The current Rapids kits are so much better than these ones. ” -jlaz10

“ Nice front of card, not nice back of card. Not a collector of soccer (futbol) cards. ” -NJDevils

“ The design that happens to go between his feet makes it look really weird ” -Hollywood42

“ The motion of the photo is going the opposite way from the design, making a confusing combination. Also, his left foot sinks into the background due to bad photoshopping. I'll pass on this set, I think. ” -Luckynumber78

“ Well, you don't see many soccer cards as cotd lately, (football, for our European members) Upper deck really does have their hands in everything. Great design and an excellent action shot. I wouldn't be upset to find this set in my collection. Very appealing. ” -Dixxy

“ Not my favorite Upper Deck offering for MLS cards, kind of a boring design. Anyway, after leaving England and Scotland John Spencer had a decent run with Colorado Rapids. He has since been inducted into the Rapids Gallery of Honor. ” -Gunny
