Set: 2007-08 Upper Deck (Rate)

Card: #488 Riley Cote

“ Nicely done card. I miss series 2s, in my two sports we have not gotten any since 2009, and before that I can't even remember when the last one was, early 2000s. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Young Guns has got to be the longest running subset in sports cards. ” -suomibear8

“ Nice photo. Good to see the player head to toe with no arms or legs hanging out of the picture. Nice readable back too. ” -NJDevils

“ Nothing really stands out about the card itself.. but the guy has a cool name.. ” -lyfestory

“ The Flyers original Edge uniforms looked terrible. Thank god they went back to their original duds. ” -jlaz10

Set: 2003-04 Bowman Signature - Foil (Rate)

Card: #20 Shaquille O'Neal

“ Hey, it's been a while since one of mine got up here! :) This was a one per box parallel in the 2004-05 Bowman Signature brand. I am slowly working on getting the backs scanned of the fronts I already had done for my own website before I joined the Database, I hope to have them finished in 2014. I can't believe the Lakers have been wearing the Sunday Whites for a decade now; it seems like just yesterday they introduced them. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Shaq! Ahhh! ” -jlaz10

“ This is why silver foil and black backgrounds do not mix. Even in-hand, it's a pain trying to read foil names on a dark background. Someone needs to destroy Topps stockpile of foil. Think of the children! ” -DaClyde

“ Shaq took jump shots? ” -SaveDaKid

Set: 2011 Topps Chrome - Rookie Autographs (Rate)

Card: #178 Mark Trumbo

“ Always loved the Chrome sets. I wish Topps still had the NBA license! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ This picture was taken before he was assigned his number 44, as there is no number on the front. ” -jlaz10

“ I'm a sucker for the Chrome cards, and autographed cards. This is a sweet looking card (front and back). ” -vrooomed

“ pretty nice card.. wasn't surprised to see him traded, but the Angels will miss his bat, especially if Pujols and Hamilton don't break out of their funks.. ” -lyfestory

“ That's a nice card. And look, he actually signed his whole name! I mean, it looks like he signed it in third grade handwriting class in blue crayon, but still! ” -Luckynumber78

Set: 2012 Topps - A Cut Above (Rate)

Card: #ACA-12 Stan Musial

“ Cut Above may be the most common insert name, and this is a good card design. The back is a little less interesting than the front, but you can't win them all, I suppose. It should have included the years he played on the back, some of us (ie Me!) are clueless but still curious. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ RIP ” -jlaz10

“ More football ” -SSG Temple

“ This is a die-cut card set I really like. ” -vrooomed

“ this brings new meaning to "Paper Cut" ” -ray fosse's ghost

“ Stan "The Bad Front Scan" Musial??? ” -SaveDaKid

“ I don't think players like Stan Musial were meant to be dragged, kicking and screaming, into the Photoshop era. The back could use a cartoon. ” -Norb Rozek

“ A more current release, decent cards.. Bought a bunch of newer Topps packs and these cards are relatively normal for their more common inserts.. Great player.. ” -lyfestory

Set: 1993 Studio (Rate)

Card: #59 Greg Swindell

“ I bet he plays for Houston ” -Young Kilo

“ I love this set because of the backgrounds being closeups of uniform elements. Too bad for me it was quite difficult for me to find a pack of Studio in 1993. ” -duaned99

“ I always liked this set. The shiny facsimile auto's and the stitched team logo was a nice touch. ” -suomibear8

“ I loved these sets by Studio. Stats freaks wouldn't like the lack of stats, but it's nice to get a glimpse into the player. ” -Mike67

“ I like the uni-centric design to this card. The 'Stros caps were and today are some of my favorites. ” -jlaz10

“ I hope it's the scans fault you can't see the autograph, otherwise white on white, BRILLIANT!!! ” -SaveDaKid

“ I actually enjoyed the earlier Studio sets because they were a break from the normal card sets of the early to mid 90s... ” -lyfestory

Set: 2005 Inkworks Serenity (Rate)

Card: #54 Attack of the Reavers

“ Boy. You never appreciate good makeup till you see examples of poor makeup ” -SSG Temple

“ Loved this movie !!!! Loved this series !!! This looks like it would have been a nice card set too. ” -uncaian

“ From a plot standpoint, I didn't understand how the Reavers got to be such an organized threat as they seemed to be mindless barbarians by all accounts. And they were physically destroying themselves. Just play keep away and in a few years they'd have all died of self-inflicted decay. ” -DaClyde

“ Eww, that's one of the most disgusting cards I've seen on here. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Yikes, that's an ugly card. If you were going to do this scene, why not put the Kaylee picture on the front instead of the back? No one wants to be innocently flipping through their Firefly cards in the middle of the night and run across /that/. ” -Luckynumber78

“ I'm scared ” -jlaz10

“ The face not even a mother could love... ” -lyfestory

“ Now that's disturbing. ” -koloth42

Set: 1996 Stadium Club (Rate)

Card: #388 Steve Ontiveros

“ Too many colors on the back of the card... but a great shot of the grip for a split finger fastball on the front. ” -ThemightyOx

“ Big picture. Minimal information on the front. The TSC Skills Matrix is a little dumb. I love how he is topped out on Savy and barely average in Velocity and SO Pitch. Great looking front, but the back is way to busy. ” -yokonashiwa

“ Front - B (although I can tell from the photo and knowing the player, I want to see position listed on the front). Back - F (graph is useless, stats are weak, and the write up can barely be read over a picture). ” -vrooomed

“ I like a lot of Stadium Club front designs but never enjoyed the back...eeewww ” -SaveDaKid

“ Front of this card is cool. Back of the card is a little garish. The green and yellow "works" for me too. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ One of the great ones in the shining history of the mid-to-late 90's Oakland A's. If it weren't for you, Steve, and Geronimo Berroa, the A's would have been way worse than they already were. ” -ray fosse's ghost

“ Let's see some football ” -SSG Temple

“ the fronts are nice and clean, but the backs are clearly not... ” -lyfestory

“ Is the back on fire? "Skills matrix"? How about readable, useful stats on the back. Oh well, that was 17 years ago, I guess they won't issue a recall and fix this. ” -NJDevils

“ Didn't realize he pitched this long. By the way, cards from Steve Ontiveros (70's OF) need to be separated from Steve Ontiveros (P). ” -volbox

“ I like the pic on the front of the card, clear and colorful. Don't like the back though. The Oakland A's green, always a classic. ” -grim25

Set: 2002 Bowman (Rate)

Card: #193 Derrick Lewis

“ Before changing his name to Dwayne Wade, Derrick Lewis tried a career in baseball, but after some embarrassing outings a name & sport change was due for Derrick to hide from his past & start a new... ” -SaveDaKid

“ These were the years when Bowman had too much going on and looked like a mid-'90s mess, all the way into the mid-'00s. Boooring. ” -Luckynumber78

“ An interesting thing about the Braves uniforms is that up until 2005, their player names were vertically arched, not radially, as is common. ” -jlaz10

“ I've seen this design come up as Card of the Day before, and I like it. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Looks like something an ancient Egyptian slave carved several millennia ago. ” -revnorb

“ If I remember right, there's some great RCs and stars in this set. Don't believe this guy is one of them.. ” -Hollywood42

Set: 2010 Topps - Turkey Red (Rate)

Card: #TR93 Ian Desmond

“ Really cool card and design for a player who never really lived up to expectations. ” -Luckynumber78

“ FORE!!!! ” -SSG Temple

“ The current Nationals unis are so much better than their originals. Remember, addition by subtraction is better than addition by addition. ” -jlaz10

“ My first thought when I saw this card was "What is wrong with this card?" I am not a fan of painted cards unless it is Donruss Diamond Kings. I didn't like it at first, but it has grown on me. Bet it looks better in person. ” -yokonashiwa

“ I didn't know Andrew Wyeth worked for Topps... ” -Norb Rozek

Set: 1991 Upper Deck (Rate)

Card: #180 Mervyn Fernandez

“ I miss you L.A. Raiders. ” -ray fosse's ghost

“ This is a really cool action shot, but I don't think he's gonna make that catch. I like umpire's expression, though. ” -Luckynumber78

“ Had some great years in the CFL with B.C. Lions. ” -dobbie

“ Ugh, screenprint! ” -jlaz10

“ I like the football shaped hologram. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Swervin Mervyn Fernandez. Another attempt by Al Davis to throw the deep ball that never panned out. ” -whoisrob
