Set: 1973-74 Topps (Rate)

Card: #22 George Trapp

“ All I have to say about this picture is... AWESOME! ” -carthage44

“ Fantastic 70s card. Love the locker room background, shadow and all. No glitz. Simple ball over basketball. Love the 'do' and the muttonchops. ” -NJDevils

“ Big hair and mutton chops, it must be the 70s. ” -koloth42

“ 70s hairstyles... Facepalm. ” -jlaz10

“ He has sick flow ” -Hollywood42

“ The epitome of 1970s hairstyle...some of the Afros grew so large they didn't even fit on the cards! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Just think, in the seventies, guys like George looked in the mirror every morning and they'd say to themselves, 'Yeah, with this look, I nailed it today.' ” -deporcoruña

Set: 1990 Best (Rate)

Card: #268 Mike Burton

“ Minor league cards... no thank you! ” -carthage44

“ Not a lot of design effort by Best. Looks like a yearbook photo. ” -sascards67

“ Speaking of shameless design stealing- this card uses the same fonts and style as the Mothers Cookies sets done for several teams between 1984 and the early 1990's, before they went to other design schemes. Not sure if Barry Colla was responsible for the photography in this set as he was for the Mothers sets. ” -PlayerPCCollector

“ Hmm. Could have done with a bit of that bat. Makes the image look off center. ” -koloth42

“ Very nice minor league card. Good photography ” -NJDevils

“ Meh ” -Hollywood42

“ Classic minor league card. Still, way too simple for my likings. ” -jlaz10

Set: 1992-93 Upper Deck (Rate)

Card: #119 Scott Mellanby

“ I really like the way the puck with the logo on the bottom right seems to shoot off the card ” -Hollywood42

“ Typical Upper Deck 90s card with it's large picture and small name on the bottom. Still, the flying puck is a nice touch. ” -jlaz10

Set: 1960 Topps (Rate)

Card: #24 Dick Gray

“ 1960 would be Dick's last of 3 years in the majors. He only played 9 games that year. Not sure about the pink background here. ” -sascards67

“ Ah, a bit of heaven for me. This is my childhood in a nutshell. The backs are great too. Too bad the Cards are now changing those beautiful unis. ” -NJDevils

“ One of the best sets ever. I loved it when Topps brought it back for Topps Heritage a couple years ago. ” -jlaz10

“ Love the two photo shots. ” -carthage44

“ Eww, colors are well. . . 60s psychadelic. I think the card is wonderful anyway. ” -koloth42

Set: 1992 Score - Impact Players (Rate)

Card: #84 Ozzie Guillen

“ Yes, finally a Chicago White Sox card. Despite all the flack that Ozzie gets for being outspoken, he did give the city of Chicago their first World Series title in almost 90 years so he will always have a special place in my heart! GO WHITE SOX!!! ” -carthage44

“ Another great example of '90s design. You don't even have to look for the year to know the decade. ” -jlaz10

“ Unispiring design. ” -koloth42

“ Not used to seeing him so skinny. ” -DanD

“ I wonder what's going thru his head in that picture? Probably something hateful. ” -bigsmooth

“ Least favorite manager ever ” -Hollywood42

Set: 2011 Panini Certified (Rate)

Card: #255 DeMarco Murray

“ I have this card and I posted this picture to the database. Very cool! ” -carthage44

“ I never was a fan of DeMarco but this is a pretty cool card. ” -Colts12

“ Not a pretty card at all. Very sterile. I give it a D- . ” -NJDevils

“ Jersey cards are always great, but calling it "Fabric" isn't. ” -jlaz10

“ If he wasn't always injured cowboys would be a good team ” -Greenfuzz

“ Those guys at Panini try so hard....yet fail oh so miserably. ” -bigsmooth

Set: 2012 Finest (Rate)

Card: #34 Drew Smyly

“ I think card companies are running out of ideas for card designs. Very bland. ” -carthage44

“ Worst thing ever was Baseball allowing only Topps to produce cards. No more imagination in the designs ” -Young Kilo

“ On first glance, it looks like his arms are coming out of his back. Freaky! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Yeah, putting a metal file behind Smyly was another great Topps' idea. Or is that a transmission screen? ” -NJDevils

“ Topps has too many sets made these days. They're all good ideas, but something just gets lost in production. The only good sets really are Topps and Topps Heritage. ” -jlaz10

“ Most pitch contort themselves to pitch especially with velocity. But this Drew pitching arm looks like it isn't even his. O.O ” -koloth42

“ I hate it when it seems like the pitcher has an arm coming out of the middle of his back. ” -sascards67

Set: 1991-92 Topps (Rate)

Card: #60 Red Wings Team

“ I used to love the Wings back in these days but now I hate them. GO BLACKHAWKS!!! ” -carthage44

“ Can you hold your excitement down boys? You are embarrassing the team with your raucous behavior. ” -koloth42

“ Sad thing is that this card is only 21 years old, and two guys in the photo are now deceased (McCrimmon and Chiasson). ” -DanD

“ I've always wondered how they decide which players to put on the team cards. It was better in the old days with whole team pictures, like in baseball. ” -jlaz10

Set: 2003 Fleer Tradition (Rate)

Card: #39 Pedro Feliz

“ Cool old school design but the picture leaves much to be desired. ” -carthage44

“ Fleer Tradition was obviously a copy of Topps Heritage. Doesn't this card look surprisingly like '53 Topps? ” -jlaz10

Set: 1990-91 Fleer (Rate)

Card: #135 Otis Smith

“ Typical Fleer design. Not a bad image if a bit odd on the angle. ” -koloth42

“ Anyone else notice that Otis has a freaky similar face and expression as the Bulls dude in the background? ” -Hollywood42

“ This may be the best 1990 Fleer basketball card I've ever seen. Unfortunately the basketball designs got progressively worse over the years just like the baseball sets. ” -sascards67
