Random Card of the Day

Friday, March 7, 2014

Set: 1991 JOGO (Rate)

Card: #199 Trevor Kennerd

“ Not a lot to like about this card. The picture and text/logo go different directions, the back is useless with no stats or bio, and what's up with the rat? At least the photo is a decent action shot! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Held in suspense...Is he going to stick the landing? ” -addysdaddy

“ I like the high whites on his socks. ” -jlaz10

“ The text makes me thing this should be a vertical card. The picture obviously is horizontal. I don't think it's just a coincidence that I have never heard of JOGO before ” -Hollywood42

Set: 1988 Fleer Baseball MVP's (Rate)

Card: #34 Larry Sheets

“ This card is a tribute for how cheesy the Baseball MVP set was or how bad the Orioles were in 1988...Nice 'stache there Larry! ” -flcardtrader

“ This is the definition of hangover ” -SSG Temple

“ Man, pranks back in the day were harsh. Does he even know his teammates are let something crawl up his face? ” -UNC_Samurai

“ It's amazing how little changed, other than the color scheme, the back and even front of this one looks to other Fleer releases from that time period. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ It's nice how the "Fleer Baseball MVP" logo dwarfs both the player name and the team and position, because otherwise i would have thought the MVP for that year was Jose Canseco. ” -revnorb

“ Wow, nothing says MVP like a boring pic on a boring card with boring lettering. Something about that typeface makes my brain think there are typos even though there aren't... weird ” -jackal726

“ I like the subtle placement of the Rawlings logo into the sleeve stripe. ” -jlaz10

Set: 1999-00 Fleer Force - Special Forces Forcefield (Rate)

Card: #4SF Stephon Marbury

“ This card looks a lot better in person. I don't have this one (or at least I don't think I do) but I have others from this insert set, and the textured rainbow foil just does not scan well. Not really a big Marbury fan...although I do have one of the replica jerseys of his Phoenix #3, which is where the Nets traded him to after the 2000-01 season. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Still have a pair of Starbury's. Wish they still made them. ” -jupiterhill

“ Stephon Marbury is certainly part of the Very Special Forces. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ Holy ball, Batman. Talk about in your face. ” -vrooomed

“ Half card of the day. Where's the back? Please enter the back too! ” -NJdevils

“ Hahaha Brooklyn ” -jlaz10

“ Fleer sure knows how to come up with some interesting inserts. Can't wait to see this one in 2020 Fleer Retro. ” -jackal726

“ What a terrible sub set name...someday we'll be able to post images or video of our reactions to these cards...this card would get a head shake side to side with eyes closed... ” -SaveDaKid

“ Maybe I'm being too critical here, but I don't think there should be a "Special Forces" series unless there are military members on the card. Marbury's great, but let's not take away from the real special forces ” -Hollywood42

“ Whew, if Stephon hadn't saved it, that ball might have hit me in the face! 3-D! ” -DaClyde

Set: 1996 Fleer - Post-Season Glory (Rate)

Card: #2 Ken Griffey Jr.

“ Hmm, it almost looks like he's going to hit himself upside the head with his bat there. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I hate cards that commemorate some real or imagined milestone, they always seemed like extraneous garbage to me. That said, this one looks kinda nice, although they should've tightened up the kerning on the script "Ken Griffey, Jr." so the letters touched each other. ” -revnorb

“ ... no ring ” -SSG Temple

“ As a baseball fan, something about this card bores me. ” -NJdevils

“ Griffey was my favorite player growing up. It's really too bad he didn't have more postseason appearances in his career. ” -duaned99

“ Looks just like the Mariners today. ” -jlaz10

“ Busy front, but nice overall. ” -vrooomed

“ Some people are probably going to hate this design, but I gotta say, I really like it ” -Hollywood42

Set: 1988 Star Winston-Salem Spirits (Rate)

Card: #1 John Berringer

“ Is this the same Star that produced NBA basketball cards from 1983-84 through 1985-86? ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Your kidding me right? I have to stand here for a picture? Ok, here's my school yearbook pose. ” -addysdaddy

“ such a plain card and way too much blue. ” -nohascome

“ Ah man. It's John Berringer. Who the hell is John Berringer? ” -Young Kilo

“ Come on coach you just gotta let me play today. You can't say no to this face? ” -PDIZZLE

“ Dude was AWESOME in Platoon, a little less believable in Major League, though. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ I probably touched that card! ” -vrooomed

“ For just one moment in his professional career, this guy is #1. ” -ray fosse's ghost

“ Interesting that he's wearing a Winston-Salem cap, but a Cubs jacket. ” -jlaz10

Set: 1998 Collector's Choice (Rate)

Card: #168 Ugueth Urbina

“ Solid card. ” -SSG Temple

“ Never liked Collector's Choice so I guess I am not a collector. ” -NJDevils

“ Man, his parents must have really put a hurting on the Scrabble tiles the day after he was conceived. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ The Expos use of pinstripes on their home uniforms in this set was a little too much. ” -jlaz10

“ This is some really self-conscious typography... everything is little and artsy instead of being big and bold and legible. Whomever designed this probably never owned any baseball cards when they were a kid. ” -revnorb

“ This is one of the strangest names I have ever seen ” -Hollywood42

“ Heard he came out of prison still pumping 90 ” -Young Kilo

“ Finally, a "Did You Know?" worth knowing on the back. ” -jackal726

Set: 1977 Topps (Rate)

Card: #250 Bill Madlock

“ 77 Topps nice collectable set; lines up well visually, both front and back. Bill Madlock, strong player and a great star that quickly faded as a collectable because he never quite achieved super stardom. ” -sltyeager

“ Bought my first complete set in 1977...I bought it for $10 from a neighbor who broke down vending cases each year to pay for his card habit....miss that guy! ” -flcardtrader

“ I'm surprised this card wasn't tossed out... ” -UNC_Samurai

“ Nice card, excellent back. Wish I continued collecting in the 70s. ” -NJDevils

“ Love baseball cards from the 70's ” -uncaian

“ A perfect instance of how the Cubs used to put their uniform numbers inside their helmet insignia. Look for the 15 in the middle of the C. ” -jlaz10

“ He seems awfully unhappy to have his photo taken! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ These were pretty nice looking cards, except for the clunky typography in the little yellow pennant, so i'm not sure why this was the year i quit collecting baseball cards. ” -revnorb

“ Love the backs of '77 cards ” -Hollywood42

“ Never was one of my favorite designs of the 1970s, however, the team name, player's name, and position all on the front is what I like. Decent sized photo and no manufacturer logo. Guess it helps that they were the only game in town. Overall, a very nice card. The billboard effect for the stats was a nice touch. Nothing fancy, just little supports. ” -vrooomed

Set: 1985 Cain's Discs Detroit Tigers (Rate)

Card: #15 Lance Parrish

“ Dear cardmakers, Cardboard discs are not cards. Please stop. Sincerely, ” -Luckynumber78

“ I love the old school string of cards lately... the cards that got most of us hooked to begin with ” -SSG Temple

“ Lance Parrish, suffering from a bulging disc. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ Funny-shaped trading "card". This looks more like a trading disc! ” -jnmorse

“ Interesting promo issue...reminds me of the pog fad of the 1990s, one of the few fads I actually went in for. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Yuck ” -Hollywood42

“ This would make a nice drink coaster if the yellow circle was rounder. ” -revnorb

Set: 1976 Kellogg's (Rate)

Card: #8 Reggie Jackson

“ End of an era card for Mr. October before he became Mr. October. Always liked the simplicity of Kellogg's cards but didn't eat enough cereal as a kid to ever put one of those sets together! ” -flcardtrader

“ The card is only 3-D, but those glasses can see through seven or eight. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ I remember pulling these cards out if Frosted Flakes as a kid. Never got a Reggie, however.. ” -wamk

“ This card sure would look nice in my HOF binder. ” -vrooomed

“ This totally should have been Reggie Jackson of the Baltimore Orioles. ” -ray fosse's ghost

“ So realistic! ” -jlaz10

“ My younger brother would collect these types of cards, i always thought they were unbearably cheesy looking. Like, wow, knock yourself out with that adventurous typography why don'tcha? ” -revnorb

Set: 1990 Topps Woolworth Baseball Highlights (Rate)

Card: #31 Rickey Henderson

“ I've heard many, many stories about Woolworth's, but I don't think I ever went into any, or if I did, I just don't remember. This card carries a great design and a good action photo. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ The best leadoff hitter of all time.... ” -suomibear8

“ Through the 1980s, these 33- or 44-card boxed sets available at "exclusive" outlets were not very popular. The funny thing about them still to this day, put a set up for sale, get $2. Put a single card up, get $1 for it. I would guess a lot of sets have been broken up. Nice cards for the player and team collectors. ” -vrooomed

“ WOOLWORTH'S!!!!!! ” -SSG Temple

“ These cards are before my time, but they're so attractive and colourful. A nice, cheap set like this would still be desirable, if any of the card companies would put something like this out. ” -Luckynumber78

“ Billy, here's a 1990s design that doesn't look good. ” -NJDevils

“ I wish there were more one-off sets like this produced today. It would take something like this to get me into a Woolworth. ” -jackal726

“ Highlight of the year- Rickey Henderson swings and misses ” -Hollywood42

“ Green and gold don't exactly compliment each other, but they work for the A's. ” -jlaz10

“ Rickey Henderson, looks great in the Green and Yellow. Nice set, had some good pics of some other great players. ” -grim25
