Set: 1989 ProCards (Rate)

Card: #1746 Jim O'Reilly

“ I used to get my minor league trainer cards autographed when I was a kid. Now I just wonder why? ” -ray fosse's ghost

“ After this comes up as card of the day, what are the chances that anyone will ever discuss this card again? ” -bplay24

“ #1746? Just how many cards were there in the ProCards set? I've always wondered what the largest sets were...I know for basketball it was always 659 (1991-92 Skybox), for NASCAR (and other forms of racing) only 340. (1994 Maxx) Non-sports is tougher to nail down because of sets being issued in multiple years with the same numbering system, the largest there I know of is Topps' Star Wars Galaxy which reached 800 something over 7 non-consecutive years. (1993-2012) ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Not sure if I care for the orange border, but I really like these cards. I always though it was a good design. ” -jupiterhill

“ yikes! ” -titanup74

“ Very prototypical of the 80s cards, back when mustaches were considered cool.. Cool team logo on the card.. ” -lyfestory

“ And he's wearing a Cubs jersey why? ” -jlaz10

“ Only in the Minor League do trainers get cards. Does that mean the minor league trainers are better than MLB trainers? >.> ” -koloth42

“ Jim O'Reilly led the South Atlantic league in taped wrists in 1989. ” -haogaole

“ Almost looks like he is missing an arm. ” -dobbie

Set: 2013 Topps - Chasing History Autographs (Rate)

Card: #CHA-CSA Chris Sale

“ It's been a long time since an autograph came up for Card of the Day...with how prevalent they have become over the last 15+ years that's actually pretty surprising. Cool design on this one....even if it does look like he's flapping his arms in an attempt to take flight. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Would it kill players to spend more than 5 seconds to sign their names? ” -PlayerPCCollector

“ Time to update the set and call this one "Chasing 4th place". ” -UNC_Samurai

“ That's an autograph? ” -suomibear8

“ Looks like autos/relics are becoming more common to see as RCoD- Good to see! ” -Hollywood42

“ Nice, clean autograph card, and not a terrible design.. Not a huge fan of sideways card pictures though. ” -lyfestory

“ Pinstripes don't work for some teams. However, they work for the ChiSox. ” -jlaz10

“ I have the Starling Marte one ” -eyoung11

“ I'm not a baseball card collector, but I know nice cards.This a nice card . ” -uncaian

“ Nice Auto design. I would have been thrilled to pull one of these. ” -koloth42

Set: 1990 Topps Mini Leaders (Rate)

Card: #22 Robin Yount

“ 1990...yes, you can tell by the border design and colors this was going to be in that time frame. I sure do miss the 1990s. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Awkward picture, awkward pose, awkward framing. Just... No. ” -Luckynumber78

“ The small card size isn't hiding that mullet. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ Joy, more of those psychedelic card borders... One of the more underrated players of the 80s and 90s though... I'll never understand the lure of mini cards though... ” -lyfestory

“ Classic 90's Topps design. ” -koloth42

“ I remember as a kid going to 7-11 to get packs of the 1987's. These cards were fun to get because they were smaller then the regular cards. Yount was a great ball player for the Brew Crew. ” -Tigerfan22

“ Best thing about minis is they take up less room. I don't like the double border on this. Gotta love Yount though. ” -NJDevils

Set: 2013 Topps Tribute - Tribute to the Stars Relics Orange (Rate)

Card: #TTSR-DJ Derek Jeter

“ A serial numbered card with the serial number digitally removed is almost as bad as the stupid looking photoshopped jerseys that occasionally make it onto cards. Not quite, but almost... ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Annnnnd... another Derek Jeter jersey meets a painful death at the hands of Topps. ” -ray fosse's ghost

“ Cool ” -Hollywood42

“ A pinstripe makes it all the more valuable, in my opinion... Yankee classic, it's just too bad there are far too many of these kinda cards out there... ” -lyfestory

“ It's about time we got an actual Baseball card for RCoTD ” -Erik_Young

“ Interesting how the jersey in the card is pinstriped, and Jeter is wearing the road grays in the picture. ” -jlaz10

Set: 1986 Monty Gum Wrestling Stars (Rate)

Card: #12 Baron Von Raschke

“ Seriously I don't even know what to say ” -Young Kilo

“ I was 12-13 years old, and I would stay up until midnight to watch WWWF Wrestling on Channel 9 in New York. One of the memorable villains was Baron Von Raschke, who would goose-step into the ring with a Nazi cape on. When he applied his "brain claw" to finish his opponent, the TV producers put a giant X on the screen to obscure the "horrific" sight. Of course, in real life, he was a Nebraska high school amateur wrestling champion by the name of Don Raschke who sometimes moonlighted as a substitute teacher. ” -PlayerPCCollector

“ Say what you want, but this is the scariest card I have seen on this site ” -Hollywood42

“ That's a large head. ” -jlaz10

“ Awesome! This set has one of the finest collections of bizarre wrestling photos known to man. ” -ray fosse's ghost

“ Did not know Grandpa was a wrestler? ” -Mihome316

“ Yikes! It's a bad photo of Mr. Clean! ” -koloth42

“ Bur Durp a Durp!!! Bur bu? ” -Dixxy

“ The back looks almost as bad as the front does.. Is that a wax figure head?? ” -lyfestory

“ Wow, I didn't know that the stereotype of all wrestlers actually existed. He kinda looks like a 1940s comic book villain too, now that I think about it! ” -Billy Kingsley

Card: #175 Gilles Gilbert

“ IS he wearing lipstick? ” -suomibear8

“ That awkward moment when they use your senior yearbook picture as the card photo. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ Only really know this guy from Don Cherry's auto.(not very flattering).I like this set,some of the photo shopping was pretty wonky though. ” -uncaian

“ HOCKEY CARDS!!!!!! ” -jlaz10

“ I got his auto through the mail. Such a nice guy ” -Erik_Young

Set: 1958 Topps (Rate)

Card: #248 Herm Wehmeier

“ Normally vintage Topps can't be beat, but the artwork on the back of this one does not work for me at all. At least the text is decent, and the front photo is nice and clear. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ ?? That's my name too... ?? ” -UNC_Samurai

“ Only thing i don't like about these cards is no obvious sign of telling what year the card is from.. for a novice, that's a pain... but good cards nonetheless... ” -lyfestory

“ The navy Cardinals caps were originally worn on the road in the 40's through 60's. They were retired, but brought back for road games in 1997. They were again retired this spring training, but have still made a few appearances. ” -jlaz10

Set: 1953 Glendale Hot Dogs (Rate)

Card: #NNO Steve Souchock

“ Cool card. The King of the Hot Dogs logo on the card back is awesome. Also cool to see a card of someone who served in WWII from when he was actually playing...both my sports were around before the war but the leagues weren't founded until afterwords, and the cards didn't come until later. Based on the fact that these were promos redeemable for prizes I am guessing this is a pretty rare card too. A winner all around! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Another player who might have bolstered his career had it not been for wartime service. But Steve did earn a Bronze Star serving with the 87 Infantry Division during Patton's relief of Bastogne. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ Is that a yellow D on the cap? For the Detroit Tigers? ” -jlaz10

“ Really basic, clean design.. classic-type portrait photo, definitely not something you see in most of today's cards.. ” -lyfestory

“ The younger stepbrother of 52 Topps? ” -suomibear8

Set: 1963 Topps (Rate)

Card: #518 Don Blasingame

“ Have not had a vintage card come up in a while. Great design from Topps...no surprise there! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ These Reds uniforms are unique in the fact that the player names are underneath the numbers on the back of the jersey. ” -jlaz10

“ there's a reason classic cards are classic.. they just have that look about them.. They definitely had a long way to go in terms of photography though... ” -lyfestory

Set: 1995 Score (Rate)

Card: #382 Tim Wallach

“ Interesting border design. Do I read correctly that he played over 30,000 games? That's a ton. I'm really not much of a fan of baseball, but I love the big numbers that they can put up- both career statistics and card issuance wise. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ One of my favourite players.Nice card design too. ” -uncaian

“ Bill James thinks this is the poor collector's Brooks Robinson. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ "I got it. I got it." ” -Mihome316

“ I kinda liked Score, until they got lost in the 90s. ” -jlaz10

“ ....aaaaand bring out your mirrors ...... ...... NOW! Blind him!!! BLIND HIM!!!! ” -Dixxy

“ I liked the looks of these cards when they came out, but not so much these days. ” -jupiterhill

“ "catch it, catch it" ” -titanup74
