Random Card of the Day

Thursday, July 5, 2012

Set: 2008 Upper Deck Draft Edition (Rate)

Card: #71 Martin Rucker

“ Upper Deck went overboard on the borders of this set but it was nice to have players in their college uniforms. ” -sascards67

“ I really dislike the impatience Upper Deck presents on this card. It just screams "Look it's his rookie card, even has the gold stamp of approval!!!" No UD, he is still in his college uniform. No wonder you lost your NFL license. ” -bigsmooth

Set: 1991-92 Upper Deck (Rate)

Card: #647 Valeri Bure / Pavel Bure (Bloodlines)

“ Congrats to Pavel on his Hall of Fame election. Is this really a random card? ” -sascards67

“ Looks like a promo for a new sitcom featuring hip Russian brothers that enjoy rollerblading. ” -wamk

“ Congratulations to recently elected Hockey Hall of Famer Pavel Bure, well deserved! Oh, and yes, I still have a pair of those roller blades the brothers are wearing. ” -Gunny

“ Nope, not touching this one. ” -socialgarbage

“ I hope they don't wear those clothes while playing! ” -Hollywood42

Set: 2005 Topps (Rate)

Card: #229 Scott Spiezio

“ I can never remember his last name.....I think it starts with a "S" ” -addysdaddy

“ 'You put your left foot in, you take your left foot out, you put your glove right there, and then you throw the batter out..' ” -wamk

“ This ranks right up there with 1987 Topps and 1991 Fleer for the worst set design ever. ” -bigsmooth

“ Another banner year for tasteless card design. ” -socialgarbage

“ I bought very little Topps in 2005 because just about every other product was better that year. ” -sascards67

Set: 1992 Topps (Rate)

Card: #782 Phil Plantier

“ He has that "so-so" outlook on his season with the Sox. ” -addysdaddy

“ Just another one of the many nobodies in baseball history ” -Hollywood42

“ Remember when everyone was excited by Greenwell and Burks and the other young players the Red Sox had in the late 80's and early 90's? Plantier was a decent player but way over-hyped. ” -sascards67

Set: 2010 Topps Chrome (Rate)

Set: 1982 Topps (Rate)

Card: #231 Phillies Rookies - Mark Davis / Bob Dernier / Ozzie Virgil

“ This was the first card set I ever collected. ” -addysdaddy

“ 1982 was when rookie hoarding began in earnest. You could buy "cut cases" (kinda like vending cases without the nice blue boxes) at the end of the season from dealers, break them down, and sell stacks of 100 of various players. So there were people out there who bought this card by the hundreds, thinking that one of the players would make it big. Despite a couple of useful years by Dernier and a Cy Young season by Davis, the card amounts to kindling now. ” -PlayerPCCollector

“ Not a bad card really when you consider that all three had at least a little success at the big league level. ” -sascards67

Set: 1988 Donruss Baseball's Best (Rate)

Card: #65 Wade Boggs

“ Orange? Orange!?! Dude! ” -sascards67

“ I remember buying this set at a Kroger store in '88. I thought it looked a lot better than the base design especially the back of the card. ” -addysdaddy

“ How can we make the 88 Donruss design worse? Orange border instead of blue. ” -suomibear8

“ I like the image on the card, but that border is AWFUL. ” -wamk

“ The colors are pretty lousy, the position isn't flattering...good player, though. ” -wmcduff

“ Very creative Donruss! Let's change the border color and call it something else! ” -bigsmooth

“ I much preferred this orange scheme to the base blue. Donruss sure knew how to make an ugly card, but at least the puzzles were fun. ” -socialgarbage

Set: 1986 Topps (Rate)

Card: #646 Mike Moore

“ I guess nobody told him to say cheese? ” -suomibear8

“ Love the old Mariners unis ” -addysdaddy

“ I've always had a strong dislike for this design. Poor photo quality, and ugly blocky font. ” -socialgarbage

“ I was just discussing that trident logo with my brother yesterday. Not the best logo, but fitting for a Mariner. ” -DanD

Set: 1997 Ultra (Rate)

Card: #70 Bip Roberts

“ Its like a banner being towed behind an airplane. ” -addysdaddy

“ What this card doesn't show is the ump ringing him up for a strikeout. Nice job Bip. ” -bigsmooth
