Random Card of the Day

Set: 1993-94 Topps (Rate)

Card: #205 Hakeem Olajuwon

“ Future playoff MVP? Wait, i'm confused. ” -carthage44

“ Seeing the card predictions were always somewhat fun, because most of them were so absurd. This one, however, actually came true...in a way. The NBA does not hand out Playoff MVP awards, only Finals MVP awards. A minor point of semantics. Hakeem was named Finals MVP in the very season this card was issued, as he led the Rockets to the first of two consecutive NBA titles. He was also NBA MVP the same season. Despite the fact that this is one of the more common sets, and I've had the complete subset since at least 1997, have seen the cards hundreds of times at least, I just noticed looking at the picture that the background design is a bracket. It's funny how sometimes you overlook things like that! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Hey, they predicted something right! ” -Hollywood42

“ Like the concept of the playoff bracket in the background, but it comes up short. ” -wamk

“ He did it!! ” -DanD

Set: 2012 Topps Archives (Rate)

Card: #179 Michael Bourn

“ Easily the best set of 2012. ” -sascards67

“ I always liked this card design, but why did Topps make pink the feature color so often? ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Just another sign on how Topps has just plain ran out of ideas ” -Young Kilo

“ Topps should put out a complete set using archive card designs. ” -Goldeneye

“ A little too similar to Topps Heritage for my likings, but nonetheless, I love it. If Topps continues to make Topps Heritage at the rate its progressing right now, this set (1984 Topps) will be covered in 2035. ” -jlaz10

“ All the good looking designs have been taken, so why not recycle? ” -DanD

“ A solid set. I enjoy the throwbacks. ” -carthage44

“ Topps successfully captured 2 AWESOME facial expressions...You would think they would take more than 1 picture and take the best ones... ” -Hollywood42

“ I somewhat enjoyed the Victory sets because of the simple design. ” -carthage44

“ This is from 1999? Looks like Victory hasn't changed in awhile ” -Hollywood42

“ A simple but modern design. I like it! ” -jlaz10

“ I enjoyed the Victory design this year in each of the sports. ” -EdTheStatMan

Set: 1958 Topps (Rate)

Card: #247 Casey Wise

“ Love this card. Love the set. As a kid, this probably went into the spokes of my bike. ” -NJDevils

“ One of the most simple designs ever to be put to cardboard. ” -jlaz10

“ A Wise choice for Random Card of the Day ” -Hollywood42

“ Green screen in the background. Why ahead of it's time LOL! ” -carthage44

“ I love these old cards. There is just something magical about them ” -uncaian

“ I enjoy the old-time Indian based logos before the PC Police got rid of them. (I have American Indian blood on both sides of my family and I love the old logos!) ” -Billy Kingsley

Set: 2003 Topps Chrome (Rate)

Card: #257 Carlos Pena

“ Chrome sets are nice because they are more valuable than most but sometimes the cards are very hard to see. This card is a good example of that. ” -carthage44

“ Hopefully that's just a bad scan, because that looks terrible ” -Hollywood42

“ Chrome remains one of my favorite brands- they just don't scan well though. This image seems especially blurry. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I surprisingly like Chrome, although the laminate makes the card too thick. ” -jlaz10

“ What a mess! Can barely read it! ” -suomibear8

“ classic topps, one of my favorite sets even though i only have two cards from this set ” -Baserunner3

“ Making digital images of chrome cards is tough, but can we go back to the drawing board (or is that the scanning board?) on this one? ” -PlayerPCCollector

Set: 2011 Topps - Kimball Champions (Rate)

Card: #KC-55 Stan Musial

“ Not a fan of cards like this that are not the standard card size. ” -carthage44

“ Not only was this a terrible remake, but Musial didn't even play in this era! ” -jlaz10

“ Reprints and throwback style cards don't really do much for me. Especially of great players that do not play today. Ah well I'm sure someone else enjoys them. ” -koloth42

“ Never have liked these inserts ” -Hollywood42

“ They could have done a better job here. I can't tell if the bottom picture is a drawing or a blurry photograph. It appears Topps is still bringing the 'Tall Boy' cards around periodically- they didn't work in the 60s and 70s, give it a rest! ” -Billy Kingsley

Set: 1914 Cracker Jack (E145) (Rate)

Card: #53 Otto Miller

“ They used to put these cards in Cracker Jack? Wish they still did because I would become a Cracker Jack fan real quick! ” -carthage44

“ Early cards are always interesting to look at, even if they aren't a sport you collect! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ The 1914 Cracker Jack, a classic set - until Topps brought it back and ruined it. ” -jlaz10

“ Most of the comments I could make on this pose are not printable. Sorry. ” -NJDevils

“ As hard as they've tried, baseball card manufacturers will never be able to make a reprint set that is as cool as the originals ” -Hollywood42

Set: 1984 Donruss (Rate)

Card: #228 John Lowenstein

“ Love the 80's cards and look at that perm. ” -carthage44

“ This is one of Donruss' better designs. This particular card is a nice on IMHO. Nice action photo with please design that isn't taking over the card. ” -koloth42

“ Donruss had a classic design in the mid-80s. It's a shame they killed it and eventually turned to basketball, under the name Panini. ” -jlaz10

“ Yuck ” -Hollywood42

Set: 2000 UD Ionix - Shockwave (Rate)

Card: #S10 Mo Vaughn

“ I feel a shockwave in my stomach just looking at this ” -sascards67

“ Another card where the company decided to throw whatever graphic crap they could and see what stuck.. ” -Mike67

“ OK, boys! Get all lathered up and fire away with all the snappy comments on how ridiculous this card's design is. Believe it or not, there was a time when card manufacturers tried to appeal to kids, not just recycle designs from 50 years ago. ” -PlayerPCCollector

“ UD Ionix was an interesting idea to make cards look more futuristic but I think more fans enjoy the "classic" look to cards. ” -carthage44

“ 7H15 Þ351GN 5µ©K5 ” -koloth42

“ They just don't come any worse. ” -NJDevils

“ No matter what they did with the inserts, the Ionix inserts always looked very similar to the base cards. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I think a common theme for late 90s/early 00s UD inserts is that they all have way to much going on ” -Hollywood42

“ Because Shockwave is really spelled 5HO[KW6A3. ” -jlaz10

“ This card is a little too busy. All the words and background take away from the image. ” -biggiofn7
