Set: 2011 Topps Tribute - Dual Relics (Rate)

Card: #TDR-AK Al Kaline

“ Interesting card design, but the scan is hurt by the serial number being digitally removed for some unknown reason. Also, it appears the two pieces of wood are from the same source, so I'm wondering why they have two holes for them instead of one big one. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I love the memorabilia cards, it's nice to own a piece of sports history no matter how small. ” -PDIZZLE

“ It's easy to forget that the Tigers wore numbers on their sleeves long before the Phillies made it normal. ” -jlaz10

“ LOVE these relic cards, giving the fan an shot to touch something once used by their heroes. Not overly fond of the design on this particular card, however. Maybe something else besides an expanse of white background behind the pieces of his bat.. ” -wamk

“ Not sure if I like the foil signature, but other than that it's a nice looking card ” -Hollywood42

Set: 1994 SP (Rate)

Card: #103 Chris Bosio

“ Is this payback for the Chris Bosio reference last month? ” -UNC_Samurai

“ Even though the Mariners have used the same logos and uniforms since 1993, it still is a good look. ” -jlaz10

“ ain't nuttin like holding in a wad of chew before throwing some heat! ” -tonym

“ Ehhh ” -Hollywood42

“ One of those guys that it seemed like I got in every pack, never really knew who he was, never actually saw him perform, but whenever I see his cards, he's always got chipmunk cheeks...smuggling pine tar eh? ” -SaveDaKid

“ Never knew Nintendo's Mario pitched for the Mariners ” -Young Kilo

Set: 1994 Topps (Rate)

Card: #530 Brett Favre

“ It looks like gold foil for his name...did all the football cards get foil treatment or is this a gold paralell posted in the wrong place? The design theme they used that year was not a particular favorite of mine, it was also the first time all Topps cards had a UV coating, at least in basketball. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ His face looks like Cornelius from Planet Of the Apes. ” -deporcoruña

“ Simple, elegant design. Large image, nice action shot. My only gripe is that the gold foil makes the name a little hard to see. ” -wamk

“ The packers white uniforms have always seemed too gold-heavy to me (gold helmet, gold pants). I think they should at least get green pants for the road. ” -jlaz10

“ Liked him better in a Vikings jersey. Still one of the all-time greats ” -Hollywood42

“ It's a football shape. How creative. I think it'd be awesome if topps screwed up and put a puck shape on this card instead. Or a golf ball... Also, who honestly can read hand writing nowadays anyways!? ” -Dixxy

Set: 1993 Upper Deck (Rate)

Card: #75 Clyde Simmons

“ I miss the days when they did checklists...I may be the only person ever who had a checklist as my #1 most wanted card (From 1997-2005 when I finally got it) I've stated before that my interest in the hobby started to wane in 2003-04...I realized later that's also when they stopped doing real checklists (roughly) While it's not due to the lack of checklists, the lack of checklists is a symptom of the overall whole that drove me away for a few years. When I was young I thought these team checklists were kind of pointless, but now that they are gone I miss them. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Why is it all blurry? ” -Young Kilo

“ Not really a fan of this impressionistic type cards. ” -koloth42

“ I never understood this. UD put general checklists in the sets; why burn another 28 slots on a subset that has a duplicate function? ” -UNC_Samurai

“ The yellow flash leads me to believe that the photographer's camera can detect a methane release. ” -NJDevils

“ Upper Deck thought process: I wonder if we make the background blurry, will it make the card better? ” -jlaz10

“ I get making the background blurry to make the player stand out, but why do it to his lower body? ” -wamk

“ Is this a checklist? Someone wanna submit an image of the back, you know, THE ACTUAL CHECKLIST PART!!!!? ;) ” -DanD

Set: 1969 Topps (Rate)

Card: #554 Frank Bertaina

“ The Nationals have done a good job of recreating the Senators. However, the front of their home whites should spell out Nationals, not just a curly W. ” -jlaz10

“ Great design for an older card. Big picture and I like the fact that they didn't waste card space on a team logo. ” -yokonashiwa

Set: 2011 Topps (Rate)

Card: #54 Sam Bradford

“ He seems to be enjoying himself here... ” -Billy Kingsley

“ A favorite QB of mine. He lost his game so hopefully he can pick it up. I also love this design of card. ” -Colts12

“ Someone at Topps thought, 'Hmm, what's the most awkward-looking shot of Sam mid-throwing motion we can find?'. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ I've never been a fan of white jerseys with dark pants. ” -jlaz10

“ I love this set design still waiting for Bradford's career to take off. ” -koloth42

“ Logo good have been bigger. The team name and division painfully hard to read. ” -SSG Temple

“ This isn't Henry Rowengartner...is this an error card? ” -SaveDaKid

“ There is nothing like black lettering on a dark blue background. ” -dobbie

Set: 1993-94 Fleer Excel (Rate)

Card: #32 Marquis Riley

“ This isn't a brand I'm familiar with from Fleer, but it looks like the card design is pretty solid- although I have to say it looks more like something from the Topps name than Fleer. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Usually minor league teams named after their major league affiliates where uniforms based off of their affiliate. However, these unis look nothing like the Angels unis of the time. ” -jlaz10

“ I wonder why Fleer Powerpoint never came out ” -Young Kilo

“ I don't really like the poised cards. ” -Colts12

Set: 1987 ProCards (Rate)

Card: #93 Jessie Reid

“ Interesting how the card only says the city name (as if it wasn't MiLB approved)when the logo is on the bottom. ” -jlaz10

Set: 1991-92 Upper Deck - Promos (Rate)

Card: #1 Michael Jordan

“ Not a good scan...looks like it was scanned in one of those cheapo no-name brand pages. I don't have this one...at least, I don't think I do. I have lots of promos- a lot of them aren't even on the Database yet...but this one eluded me. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Great player. Uh not so great owner ” -Young Kilo

“ Superman!! ” -koloth42

“ Nothing need be said ” -SSG Temple

“ Thats a great picture. I think this is a pretty good set. ” -Colts12

“ Some of the best - and worst (looking at you, Skybox) card designs came from early 90s basketball cards. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ Unless MJ isn't fully elevated, he probably missed that dunk by the looks of it. ” -jlaz10

“ Ah. I know him from Space Jam!!! ” -Dixxy

“ Jordan on an Upper Deck card? Who would have thought? ” -wamk

Set: 2010 Topps WWE - Favorite Finishers (Rate)

Card: #FF8 John Cena/ Attitude Adjustment

“ My friend finds interest with wwe but I just can't. ” -Colts12

“ Is that the guy from The Walking Dead? I can't believe people pay to see these men fight. ” -Dixxy

“ That doesn't look like a lot of fun to me. At least the photography is centered. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Rock-a-bye, baby, SMASH! ” -jlaz10

“ It looks like Cena's winning, but it looks like he'll lose a nipple. ” -DanD

“ I pick things up and put them down ” -tonym

“ Cena gives Orton the F U! ” -PDIZZLE
