Random Card of the Day

Thursday, October 3, 2013

Set: 1998 Bowman (Rate)

Card: #5 Mark McGwire

“ Wasn't 1998 when he was setting all kinds of records for home runs? I vaguely remember the hype of that time...he even sponsored a NASCAR team in 1998. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I like the look and coloring of the card, but not quite sure that I like the fake signature. McGwire was one of the greats! ” -grim25

“ Odd picture on this one and the border is a bit thick. ” -koloth42

“ I'm thinking the Astros got lucky in 1997. ” -ray fosse's ghost

“ The Cards uniforms seem very bland to me. They need some piping. ” -jlaz10

Set: 2001 Decipher Star Trek the Borg (Rate)

Card: #78 Donik (Personnel Hirogen)

“ There are so many great non-sports cards posted, and we keep getting game cards? What's up with that? Well, there are worse cards that could come up. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Star Trek CCG has become popular for card of the day. I have this one but I never played the Hirogen while I was into the game. ” -koloth42

“ oh no! not again! (and I actually like Star Trek) ” -volbox

“ A face only a mother could love.. heh... ” -lyfestory

“ Yup. Sorry that is all I can offer. ” -NJDevils

“ You might want to fix that. ” -jlaz10

“ Why??? ” -Hollywood42

Set: 2013 Topps Archives (Rate)

Card: #94 Curtis Granderson

“ It's my first ever submission as card of the day! I'm happier than Billy Kingsley! Yankees are terrible, but I do like some 82 Topps Granderson. (I was so hoping my first would be a Pee-Wee's Playhouse card or better yet one of the tattoo sheets...soon) ” -ray fosse's ghost

“ Design reprints with new players seems a little bit on the lazy side to me. ” -koloth42

“ Always baseball... Such a boring game... ” -jeeyeeii

“ You gotta love anyone that can produce that many triples. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ I like most of this Archives set. Not so much the '85 cards in it, but '72, '82 and '90 - even with all the '90 haters. ” -marcbrubaker

“ A very nice card. Could do without the facsimile auto on the front. Back is nice but I'd like to see a bit more contrast on numbers, makes them easier to read for us old guys. ” -NJDevils

“ Nice expression. Really couldn't choose a better picture, Topps? ” -Hollywood42

“ Nice looking card. I like the archives set. ” -Colts12

“ Topps Archives is a great idea, but seems a little bit of overkill considering Topps Heritage has the same idea. ” -jlaz10

“ I love the 2013 Topps Archives set. Brings together all of the styles we know and love into one collection ” -eyoung11

“ the set design was pretty cool and the colors stand out more with the newer card stock.. I like when Topps does this for current players.. ” -lyfestory

Set: 2010 Topps - Legendary Lineage Relics (Rate)

Card: #LLRBM Yogi Berra / Jorge Posada

“ Looks like they are both looking at the same thing. ” -CluelessJoe

“ Another scan ruined by the serial number being removed digitally. Otherwise a good card. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Nice theme to a jersey card, but jersey & autograph cards have become commonplace in today's sets bringing down any value they might have had.. Definitely would love to have some of the greats of the past though.. ” -lyfestory

“ Cool design, nice large swatches. I'd chase cards from this set. ” -wamk

“ It's funny how the Yankees uniforms look just as good today as they did almost 100 years ago. Must be the pinstripes. ” -jlaz10

“ Cool. Don't see many of these on RCoD ” -Hollywood42

Set: 1992 Pro Set (Rate)

Card: #141 Clay Matthews

“ This was a terrible set, even the stock was flimsy. ” -NJDevils

“ Not much to gripe about here. Nice large image, text and logo aren't too distracting. Too bad it's not more of an action shot. ” -wamk

“ I like this Clay Matthews better. From what I can see, he's not egotistical, doesn't call out that he's targeting players before games, and most importantly, doesn't look like a #&%$ that desperately needs a haircut. ” -Hollywood42

“ Clay without the girly hair.. hehe... Oh Pro Set, how we haven't missed thee.. ” -lyfestory

“ Pro Set's swan song. The 1993 card quality went way downhill, and by the spring of 1994 they were bankrupt. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ Luckily the Browns uniforms stayed the same in the switches over to Reebok and then Nike. ” -jlaz10

“ Great player. Should be in the HOF ” -titanup74

“ I like this card. It is simple and doesn't try to be flashy. I always liked Clay Sr. I thought he was very underrated. ” -jupiterhill

Set: 1990 Donruss (Rate)

Card: #50 Jeff Treadway

“ Oh, those colorful 1990s sets.. i bought a ton of those things, back when cards were seemingly a dime a dozen... those cards still are, actually.. An error-riddled set, that red one was... ” -lyfestory

“ This is the year that I began tossing out worthless overproduced cards. Despite that, Treadway was a very reliable player. Again the backs of Donruss are terrible. ” -NJDevils

“ I remember these. Very much towards the end of my youth collecting days. ” -koloth42

“ You can tell by the way his name is written, and how it's placed, right when this is from. Personally I feel that the peak of card designs started in 1991, and lasted through 1997, but that's my opinion only. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ The Braves uniforms used to have vertical names on the back, but they have reverted to the common radial arch. ” -jlaz10

Set: 2002 Grandstand Vermont Expos (Rate)

Card: #4 Larry Broadway

“ Larry Broadway here is too cool for school. And baseball. And uniform logo colours that don't sear the eyes. ” -Luckynumber78

“ Once again, a minor league/promo issue has a better design than many mainstream issues. I remember seeing TV ads for them while in Lake George NY, my favorite place in the world. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ There's a made-for-TV pose, but obviously not bound for the MLB.. pretty basic & clean design, backs are not so great.. ” -lyfestory

“ They say the neon lights are bright.... ” -PlayerPCCollector

“ The last team to have been called the Expos ” -eyoung11

“ Nice design. The ad is a *little* intrusive, but not ridiculous. Backs are well-done. For a low-level minor league card set, this is *very* nice. ” -vrooomed

“ This is not real. This can't be real. Broadway refers to the sparkly Expos lettering on his chest, right? ” -marcbrubaker

“ Needs a border but not bad for a Minor League card. ” -koloth42

Set: 2010-11 Upper Deck (Rate)

Card: #137 Loui Eriksson

“ This is a nice looking set .Here,s hoping he does well with Boston. ” -uncaian

“ Nice action shot. My first reaction was that Eriksson was either trying to see how far he could bend his stick or was stringing a long bow. Random I know but that is how the image hit me. ” -koloth42

“ Great design. UD really got better as time went on, with better photos and better card designs (for the most part) ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I love the way the photography caught the stick bending on his shot. ” -duaned99

“ Good, clean design and a nice action shot.. Should hockey cards be anything else? ” -lyfestory

“ Love the way it shows the torque on the stick in this photo. Plus, Loui is one of the bright spots for the Stars. Nice use of the horizontal format. ” -vrooomed

“ I sure hope he isn't shooting the puck. The way his body and arms are positioned he is gonna break something. ” -biggiofn7

“ The Stars new uniforms are a lot better than these, their old ones, but still are missing gold. ” -jlaz10

“ Boooorrrring. Nice photo, but these late UD designs leave much to be desired and feel cheap. ” -marcbrubaker

“ This is a REALLY nice design. The clean artistry of the photograph jells nicely with the classy lettering and small headshot. I don't collect much hockey, but I may need to find a pack or two of this. ” -Luckynumber78

Set: 1990 Starline Long John Silver (Rate)

Card: #15 Glenn Davis

“ Long John Silvers has the best chicken around! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Cards from fast food. Haven't seen these type sets much recently. ” -koloth42

“ Underrated Houston ballplayer.. card colors work well with the team, but otherwise pretty bland.. ” -lyfestory

“ Whoa! Gonna need this one to fill my Astros oddballs. Underwhelming front, but a nice back - reminds me of 94 Fleer. I had no idea this set existed. Great player, too. ” -marcbrubaker

“ Glenn "Big Baby" Davis!!! ” -eyoung11

Set: 1986 TCMA All-Time Baltimore Orioles (Rate)

Card: #3BA Jim Palmer

“ Mr. Palmer is definitely an All-Time Oriole Great.. not a great picture but a nice card nonetheless.. ” -lyfestory

“ Great design. Simple but works. I even like the plain text back. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I had a bunch of these as a kid. I thought they were legit old-time cards! ” -suomibear8

“ There's too much going on in this card design, and it looks like someone had aimed a leaf-blower up his shirt. Just awkward. ” -Luckynumber78

“ The MLB logo on the sleeve means this is a picture from the O's pennant-winning season of 1969. ” -jlaz10
