Random Card of the Day

Monday, September 9, 2013

Set: 2002 Bowman (Rate)

Card: #144 Marlon Byrd

“ Is this an autograph card or just a facsimilie, something Topps was prone to do? I like the design, but I think it would look better without the autograph...real or printed. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ B-B-B-Byrd Byrd Byrd, Byrd is the word.... ” -bplay24

“ Even though this is a practice uniform, I've never been a fan of color-on-same color writing. ” -jlaz10

“ I've always liked Bowman cards, but feel there's too much border to this one.. ” -lyfestory

“ As Mr Peterman on Seinfeld would say: "nah" ” -NJDevils

“ Having a career year ” -Young Kilo

Set: 1997 Topps (Rate)

Card: #401 Walt Weiss

“ Scan seems like it may be a little washed out, but a good card design. This is one that was not used for the basketball set, most 90s Topps designs were...I know they used separate designs later in the 90s and on forward, so this may have been the start of that. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I really liked this design, but I've had lots of trouble finding a nice factory set that wasn't stuck together in one solid brick of high gloss disaster. Seems like All Topps cards from 1996 - 2005 really suffered more than other years from this issue. ” -Shane715

“ Safe? ” -Hollywood42

“ What's not to like about this card? Big, action image, no distracting text or graphics, and it features my Colorado Rockies! A+ ” -wamk

“ was he out or safe?? good action shot though, could only pull off with a sideways picture... ” -lyfestory

“ Even though the Rockies have existed for 20 years now, their home uniforms have remained practically untouched. ” -jlaz10

“ Go Walt Weiss! Maybe one day you'll be manager. ” -ray fosse's ghost

“ Another set I liked at the time, but not so much these days. ” -jupiterhill

Set: 2008 Choice New York-Penn League Top Prospects (Rate)

Card: #5 Lonnie Chisenhall

“ Interesting card design...would be better without the ghost logo on the bottom right, I think, but still kind of cool. I am pretty sure this team has been covered on my local news (as in, local enough that the newscast is recorded in walking distance!) ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Now.. I'm a fan of uniforms and logos, but it would have been nice for the company to actually put the team name somewhere on the card.. ” -Mike67

“ Really nice card for a minor league set. Nice card for any set. Now for the back. Minor leaguers have little history but please dont leave the back blank. ” -NJDevils

“ Kinda cool design but it takes a little longer trying to read the upwardly scrolling font.. looks like he was dropping the little logo head as well as the bat.. ” -lyfestory

“ Classic modern minor league card. ” -jlaz10

Set: 2012 Topps Heritage (Rate)

Card: #302 Brennan Boesch

“ Not a bad look to a heritage set.. At least Topps had a lot of past to look on, unlike the Upper Deck Heritage sets, though they looked nice in their own right.. i'll take sets like these over the sameness that most Topps regular sets look like anymore.. ” -lyfestory

“ The Topps Heritage line is one of my favorite concepts in cards. I wish they did more than two seasons in basketball. There were so many more great vintage designs they could have done! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I dont like the Heritage sets. The past, no matter how much I like the design, is gone. Stop printing sets just for the heck of it. ” -NJDevils

“ The Tigers home uniform still looks fresh and new, even though it's been worn since the late '50s. ” -jlaz10

“ At least try to look excited, dude. You're on a freaking baseball card! ” -Luckynumber78

Set: 1959 Sicle Air Force (Rate)

Card: #AA-54 Family of Guider Air-to-Air Missiles

“ Wow! Two of mine in a row! I don't think I've seen that happen before. This is a hard set to find information about, I didn't even know it existed until I was able to get some for my own collection. No one seems to know how they were distributed or even if the checklist is complete! There is also a bi-lingual parallel issued in Canada but I have not been able to hunt down a checklist yet. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Just when I thought I seen them all ” -Young Kilo

“ I really really like this card. This is the true purpose of the Trading Card Database. Keeping the obscure and bizarre alive. ” -ray fosse's ghost

“ As if kids needed an incentive to eat a popcicle. Fun set none the less. :-D ” -koloth42

“ Finally, a card showing something capable of more interceptions in 60 minutes than Jake Delhomme. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ These random card of the day cards are getting weird ” -Hollywood42

“ Sometimes I wonder why these cards were ever made. ” -jlaz10

“ What a charming portrait! The boys have grown taller than daddy. ” -DanD

“ I can't say anything kid friendly about this... :( ” -Dixxy

Set: 2012 Topps Star Wars Galaxy 7 (Rate)

Card: #833 Checking Out Threepio

“ really cool artwork.. love cards like this, especially of a film classic.. ” -lyfestory

“ How rude! ” -koloth42

“ The one exception to the hated non-sport cards is Star Wars ” -Hollywood42

“ Great cards for kids. I remember collecting Davey Crockett and Zorro cards way back. It was so much fun to have part of the movie or TV show. Good to get the kids involved. ” -NJDevils

“ Wow, another one of mine! That's a first, the card displayed as Card of the Day and the card to write about for a future Card of the Day is mine as well. Glad one of my Star Wars cards has come up! They are, in my opinion, the best movies ever...the first memory I have of anything, literally, is watching these movies. I have literally seen the original trilogy more than 500 times each...probably more than that, I can't possibly count but I've even watched them more than once in the same day. My Star Wars card collection is also entirely done on the Database, unfortunately I don't have that many of them. It's the only aspect of my collection that is completely posted...with the exception of a few that I can't find checklists for. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Topps still makes Star Wars? ” -jlaz10

“ Ooh, this is one is very cool. This exemplifies the basic element I like most about trading cards: at their core, they are small, affordable pieces of pop art catered exactly to someone's interests. ” -Luckynumber78

“ I don't think they're going to let us in! ” -bplay24

“ YAY it's Not My Fault this time!!!!!!! ” -Dixxy

Set: 1992 BBM (Rate)

Card: #197 Akira Uehara

“ an odd border, but a pretty straight-forward card overall... Was always a big fan of Far Eastern players coming over and trying their hand at big league ball in the US.. ” -lyfestory

“ I just can't find a way to like this card. ” -koloth42

“ At first glance it looks like the Dodgers. After further examination, the uniform components are the same (including red front numbers), and even the logo is the same script as the Dodgers' logo. ” -jlaz10

“ Why is "Did you know?" in English but everything else in Japanese on the back of the card? ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I love BBM's cards just for the "Did you know?" on the back. Did you know I can't read Japanese? Couldn't you put it in French or German just to give me a fighting chance? It appears Akira did something awesome on Aug 19, 1991, but I might be guessing. ” -ray fosse's ghost

Set: 1964 Topps (Rate)

Card: #441 Bob Duliba

“ Solid card design. Not over cluttered with a nice player photo. ” -koloth42

“ The sets you like best are usually from your childhood, especially when there was only one set available. I remember this set well. ” -NJDevils

“ The origial Los Angeles Angels had some of the best uniforms of their day. It would be great if today's Angels would either throwback to these often or bring them back permanently. ” -jlaz10

“ A run of vintage lately...always cool to see vintage cards, regardless of subject! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ That's not a Halo... ” -Dixxy

Set: 1992 Topps (Rate)

Card: #664 Ken Hill

“ He should have won 20 games if there was no strike in 1994. ” -dobbie

“ This is a good solid card. The 1992 Topps set was a great design. I like the photo of the stadium on the card back. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Sometimes I wonder why the pullover-sansabelt era lasted so long. ” -jlaz10

Set: 1997 Circa (Rate)

Card: #11 Jose Rosado

“ It's a sad, sad thing when the back of a card would be a more presentable card than the front. This card can be succinctly described by a word contained in the name of the team it represents -- "Oy." ” -Luckynumber78

“ Yessss!!! Jose Rosado!! Wait, who's Jose Rosado? ” -ray fosse's ghost

“ Some colors just don't go together ” -Young Kilo

“ I loved the basketball version of this set when it was new - they called it Z-Force for some unknown reason - and I even managed to complete the 1997-98 collection the hard way, by buying retail and hobby packs...I generally couldn't afford boxes at the time. As time has gone on, however, my opinion of the sets has actually gone down a bit; as I've come to appreciate actual photo documentation of the sport more than flashy graphics or a cool design...I suppose one could say that I've matured, but that's way more analyzing than I want to do, hah! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ The great Royals home uniform! ” -jlaz10

“ Cards that sorta crossed baseball with the superhero sets from Marvel.. at the time, they were pretty cool.. Now, its just kinda hard to read the player name in foil.. I do like the quotes though... ” -lyfestory

“ Couldn't they have made this card just a tad busier? ” -wamk

“ Whoa! This card is way to busy. I can't just here the designers discussing ideas and it ending with the head designer announcing, "Let's just use them all. More is better." ” -koloth42

“ There's a lot going on in this card, but I'm actually a fan of it ” -Hollywood42

“ This card is a whole lot of bad. Rarely do you see a back that looks better than the front. Nice to see a Royals card even if it is Jose Rosado. ” -jupiterhill

“ Is this a card or a comic book? ” -bplay24

“ Wow. What a horrible design... I got nothing else to say. ” -Dixxy

“ Is Rosado Spanish for Cheerios? This has to be a cereal box. ” -NJDevils
