Set: 1999 Fleer Tradition (Rate)

Card: #557 Sean Runyan

“ I really liked this design for Fleer's flagship set when it was new. I liked the gray foil used for the parallel even more. It appears the baseball set was all gold foil. The basketball set was gold foil for rookies only, using red and light blue foil for western and eastern conference respectively. I wish that we, speaking as an NBA collector, got as good coverage on cards as baseball does. The NBA set was only 220 cards. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ LOve the action shot but I am really annoyed with cursive team name. Flip flop with the all caps name would make me happy. That and adding team logo to the front ” -SSG Temple

“ Could we get a larger font on the name next time around? ” -NJdevils

“ Great way of showing both the Tigers home and road unis. ” -jlaz10

“ The team name on there is a real eyesore. Glad I never collected these. ” -Luckynumber78

Set: 2004 Topps (Rate)

Card: #115 Chad Johnson

“ Good card design, and good photography. It appears the team name and his name are both foil. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I get the feeling changing his name to Ocho Cinco might not of been the best of ideas ” -Young Kilo

“ Boy oh boy where does one begin? Maybe someone should slap the backside of the card designer and say good job, oh wait that might land someone in jail! ” -addysdaddy

“ My favorite line of his: "I gotta show em' how to eat right man, that's all...I got all five food groups. Pancakes, sausage-egg McMuffin, cinnamon roll, large orange juice...I just be juiced all day." ” -UNC_Samurai

“ Ah, Reebok's cheap quality. ” -jlaz10

“ This really makes me want to track down a Chad Ochocinco card ” -jackal726

“ Ocho Cinco - which actually translates to eight five, not eighty-five. ” -vrooomed

Set: 2002 Fleer - Tiffany (Rate)

Card: #299 Mike Lamb

“ It looks like the only difference on this parallel to the regular version is the serially numbering on the back...I would not be surprised if it was glossy where the base card was not. I hope that's the case because if it's just the number that would be rather disappointing...but I know from my own collection Fleer did do that kind of thing at that time. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Lamb played from 2000-2010 with the Rangers, Astros, Twins, Brewers and Marlins. Career: .276 AVG, 69 HR and 349 RBI. Notable facts: Was a part of the 1995 College World Series Champion Cal State Fullerton Titans, drafted in the 7th round by the Rangers and in 2005 he hit the first ever Houston Astros home run in a World Series game. ” -carthage44

“ How was Lamb as a player? Not baaaaad. ” -wamk

“ I have to say, these kind of subsets amuse me. look at it's counterpart from the base set. What's the difference? whatever the difference, this one is 066/200 and that makes it worth more. People go out of their way to complete these sets? ” -Dixxy

“ Looks like something you'd cut off of the bottom of a box of Bicentennial muffins or something. Also, there's something fatally uncool about not having the team name or player position on the front of the card. ” -revnorb

“ The Texas Texases. Whatever happened to Rangers? ” -jlaz10

“ I like the simplistic square border, it reminds me of the early 90s Topps cards. Also, I love the red-white-and-blue color scheme of both the card and even the colors in the photo. This combined with his playing for Texas just screams America. The stats on the back are solid too. It's an all-around good card. ” -ScottoftheBoro

Set: 1996 Score (Rate)

Card: #162 Joey Cora

“ This is a surprisingly good design for Score...from what I've seen on the Database, their designs tend to be lousy or lackluster, but this...this is great. Stats and bio, large clear photos with no real digital alterations, and the card design is not intrusive or silly. I'm impressed! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Cora played from 1987-1998 with the Padres, White Sox, Mariners and Indians. Career: .277 AVG, 30 HR, 194 RBI, 1,035 Hits and 117 SB. He was an All-Star in 1997 with the Mariners and won a World Series ring with the White Sox as the third base coach in 2005. ” -carthage44

“ Decent back. Lousy front. Never liked breaking the names into two different fonts. ” -NJDevils

“ Even back in '96 the Mariners still wore their current uni set. ” -jlaz10

“ He always looked like his cap didn't fit. ” -volbox

“ I always thought Score had the ugliest designs....this proves it. ” -suomibear8

Set: 2009 Topps Heritage - Flashback Stadium Relics (Rate)

Card: #BM Bill Mazeroski

“ I've never seen a seat relic before. Cool! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Colorful card ” -Young Kilo

“ Played for the Pittsburgh Pirates from 1956-1972. Career: .260 AVG, 138 HR, 853 RBI. He was an All-Star 10 times, 8 times Gold Glove Award, won two World Series and inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2001 by the Veterans Committee. ” -carthage44

“ The arms on this dude. Can you imagine what he would look like with today's nutrition and fitness knowledge? ” -wamk

“ Hopefully the older players are getting some money out of these. ” -NJdevils

Set: 2009-10 O-Pee-Chee (Rate)

Card: #363 Derek Morris

“ I'm truly surprised that I have not gotten into major league hockey. I watch, or did when it was available, every other kind of hockey, and floor hockey when I was in school was the most fun to play- and the only sport I was ever actually good at. I wish I could play right now, although I can't physically do it anymore- but I digress. I think a part of the problem is that I can't keep track of the puck during the games. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Excellent front. Note to print shop foreman: check ink supply before running the backs. ” -NJdevils

“ This set had nice fronts but blah backs.I remember Morris from Calgary ,where he had a couple pretty good years ” -uncaian

“ What a beauty of a sweater. ” -jlaz10

“ Gotta love the Ranges.... ” -flcardtrader

Set: 1992 Impel U.S. Olympic Hopefuls (Rate)

Card: #64 Deena Wigger

“ Nice action photo. Cute gal with a nice smile. A little history she finished 9th overall at the 1988 Olympics and despite trying out for the Olympics in 1992 and 1996, she didn't make the team. She joined the Air Force in 1995 as a Medical Technician. ” -yokonashiwa

“ Go ahead. Do her wrong. See what happens ” -Young Kilo

“ There is nothing i can say that would be funnier and weirder than this card already is. ” -revnorb

“ Watching the Olympics was a big deal in our house when I was growing up. Unfortunately, it doesn't have the same appeal to me now as an adult. For that I'm sad! ” -bkklaos

“ No offense Deena, but I'd rather see one of Dixxy's Pokémon cards ” -jackal726

“ Target shooting is a fun sport to watch, but the cards are such a bore. Still, for a time when Topps was still trying to figure out full-color backs, these cards are of an impressive caliber. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ LOL...so many opportunities... so many ” -SSG Temple

“ I remember when this set came out. Everyone was so excited about the "Dream Team" cards, that the rest of the set was just an afterthought. ” -Bplay24

“ I bought a box of these and havn't opened any yet, as hard as that is to believe. It's more of a mental challenge to myself than anything else at this point, to see how long I can go without breaking into them. At least, I think it's this set! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ You'll shoot your eye out!! ” -DanD

“ Sick flow. ” -jlaz10

“ I wonder if she medaled? ” -vrooomed

Set: 1994-95 Topps (Rate)

Card: #324 Keith Askins

“ Not a fan of the way the name was on the front (they used the SAME design in other sports, boo!) and it's hard to read, even in person. At least it's in nice block lettering on the reverse. ” -vrooomed

“ Even Chris Gatling is giving the look of, "How did THIS guy get a card?" ” -UNC_Samurai

“ I never liked the font used for the names on the 1994-95 set. Shows up poorly in scans, too. (It's gold foil) ” -Billy Kingsley

“ The original Heat uniforms are so much better than their currents. The players, not so much. ” -jlaz10

Set: 2000 Topps Gold Label (Rate)

Card: #95 Chris Wakeland

“ Did this guy even play half a season in the majors? ” -UNC_Samurai

“ Had to look him up and saw that he only played 10 games in the bigs. No wonder I didn't recognize the name. Surprised Topps would put a minor leaguer on a premium card like this. I was collecting hockey when Gold Label came out and I recall it being the top 3 or 4 from each team. Nice card for 10-game player. ” -vrooomed

“ I like this sharpness of the Gold Label design. Very thick base stock, but nice embossed logo. ” -suomibear8

“ I'd prefer a wake field over a wake land any day... ” -SaveDaKid

“ So one of those high-numbered guys that Topps uses to bulk up their sets. Was the back designed by Lowe's? ” -NJDevils

“ Love Topps Gold Label. Was only in the NBA for two years but both sets were nothing short of spectacular. I pulled my first 1 of 1 from the 1999-00 set. ” -Billy Kingsley

Set: 1990 Classic Yellow (Rate)

Card: #T45 Juan Samuel

“ I'm pretty sure that in junior high I had a pair of pants that looked just like this (well, just like the boarder, I don't think Juan Samuel was on them) ” -jackal726

“ Great guy - signed a ball for me in Spring Training in Vero Beach, FL. Loved him when he was in Philly. Told him we still missed him in Philly at that time. He said thanks. The card is... well, if you don't have anything nice to say... ” -vrooomed

“ I'm sorry, I can't hear everyone else's comments over this border. ” -UNC_Samurai


“ I like this card. I tend to like yellow borders. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Looks like a failed Lemonheads box redesign. ” -revnorb

“ Those are some white pants! ” -jlaz10
