Set: 2011 Topps Star Wars Galaxy 6 (Rate)

Card: #641 Secura's Grace

“ Twiilek are pretty cool. Her lower half looks a bit like it came out of QWOP, though. ” -Luckynumber78

“ This is actually really cool art for being a trading card of a Star Wars character i can't name. I used to buy Star Wars cards in 1978...i guess they went on without me! ” -revnorb

“ Very nice! I love this set, but was unable to get this card. Some of the cards in it are not so great, but this one is. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Warning! One in every 66 packs will exterminate your Jedi card collection. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ I'm pretty sure this is the first transgender star wars character... ” -SaveDaKid

“ Do they have an autographed version? I guess not. ” -NJDevils

“ Damn. ” -jlaz10

Set: 1982 Topps (Rate)

Card: #464 Juan Bonilla

“ One of Topps' most attractive designs in terms of colour and flair. Glad they brought these back in last year's Archives. The photography, however, leaves something to be desired. ” -Luckynumber78

“ This card would have been perfect without the fake signature. I know, broken record. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ That's a nice looking card. ” -Young Kilo

“ Love this old stuff ” -SSG Temple

“ I love how they give an individual game blurb on the back. Makes me want to see those "2 dazzling plays". ” -suomibear8

“ 1982 Topps "Hockey" design. I remember the buzz around the hobby about them looking like they should be a hockey design, not a baseball one. I also remember not liking it that much back then, but at least Topps photos were better than Donruss and Fleer's. ” -vrooomed

“ The Padres best look was their mid-80's pinstripes. They haven't looked the same in their navy and gold. ” -jlaz10

“ I just can't think of anything to say for this Juan... ” -Hollywood42

“ When Bobby Bonilla joined the league Juan was forced to change his name to Juan of two Bonilla... ” -SaveDaKid

“ This was from my 2nd year of collecting at age 7. Back then I thought the autographs cool. Now I hate cards with fake autographs. Another thing about this set.. I liked the backs with the fact blubs on them, but the dark green with the dark text was hard on my 7yo eyes. Now they are even harder to read ” -ThemightyOx

Set: 2008 Upper Deck Premier - Stitchings (Rate)

Card: #PSTI-FL Fred Lewis

“ I know a lot of people don't like the manufactured patches, but I think that they can be pretty cool. This is one of those times when it's cool, in my book. If this is a game used item, that's even more interesting! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ No back? disappointing... ” -Dixxy

“ At first glance I'd say "Ah hell no", but I get excited about any card numbered especially if only 15 were made... ” -SaveDaKid

“ Not a fan of the "Manufactured Patch" and these other goofy style inserts. And can they get the photo of the player any smaller? I can still make out the logo on the helmet! ” -vrooomed

“ Looks like Freddy photobombed the card. ” -NJDevils

“ I'm not averse to manufactured relics, especially not numbered ones, but I'm not convinced that Fred Lewis merited one. ” -Luckynumber78

“ Interesting way to celebrate a cycle. ” -jlaz10

“ Looks like a box of candy cigarettes. But really nice ones! ” -revnorb

“ I don't know Fred Lewis but I like this card. ” -jupiterhill

Set: 2003 Bowman (Rate)

Card: #166 Jose Contreras

“ It's interesting how his undershirt is a darker blue than the jersey. It must not have been team-issued. ” -jlaz10

“ Yuck, a Yank ” -Hollywood42

Set: 1994-95 Pinnacle (Rate)

Card: #486 Valeri Karpov

“ A lot of hockey as Card of the Day lately. Nothing bad about that. This card is a pretty nice design, but it should have spelled out his first name instead of just an initial. That's one of my "pet peeves" about cards. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Although at the time horrendous, these sweaters have a nostalgic feel today. ” -jlaz10

“ Quack, QuacK, QuaCK, QuACK, QUACK!!! It's the flying V himself... ” -SaveDaKid

“ I could do without the bar on the right ” -Hollywood42

“ I had no idea they made Coneheads cards! ” -revnorb

Set: 2014 Topps - The Future is Now (Rate)

Card: #FN-20 Mike Trout

“ The first 2014 card to come up as Card of the Day...not sure what the "Check out the Wheels" tagline means, but the card design is pretty good. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ wpw, a 2014 already... ” -lyfestory

“ I don't know what it's called... the embellished photo. I understand they are trying to enhance the pic, but it just seems tacky to me. No logo = BOO! ” -SSG Temple

“ Now. You're looking at now, sir. Everything that happens now, is happening now. What happened to then? We passed then. When? Just now. We're at now, now. Go back to then. When? Now! ” -UNC_Samurai

“ One of the better inserts that I've seen or should I say "haven't seen". Either way, nice job. ” -NJDevils

“ Many people don't realize that this uniform set was first worn by the then-named Anaheim Angels in 2002. ” -jlaz10

“ Wow, that took less than two weeks to make RCotD, that has to be a record! ” -jackal726

“ The future is in fact here 2014 on the big board...let your trout hang out... ” -SaveDaKid

“ WOW! What a quick turnaround for a set out for a couple weeks. ” -jupiterhill

Set: 1993-94 O-Pee-Chee Premier (Rate)

Card: #100 Theo Fleury

“ Is there any 1990s design that doesn't look good? I don't think I've seen any! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ One of hockey's "best little big men" ,this was a nice set too. ” -uncaian

“ A man who looks like he's wearing a European motorcycle cop's helmet and is dancing with a cane like Fred Astaire plus a logo that looks like a large cheese wedge! What's not to love? ” -revnorb

“ Photo taken seconds after learning he was named after Theo Huxtable. ” -NJDevils

“ Couldn't they have taken the picture after he had finished dressing?? ” -yokonashiwa

“ The Flames have never looked better than their original red and gold. Black is a little too much ” -jlaz10

“ This is odd ” -Hollywood42

“ As a fellow little guy, I admire players like Fleury and Martin St. Louis and their ability to succeed in a sport dominated by men with much bigger frames. ” -DanD

Set: 1978 TCMA Tidewater Tides (Rate)

Card: #19 Marty Perez

“ Tidewater Tides...that's not very creative. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I love the big ol' photo with the tower-thing in the background, it reminds me of that 1960's Joe Kapp photo that wound up on about five different NFL and CFL cards in the 60's; the first year they ran it it had a similar structure in the background and they just kept airbrushing more and more of the background out as they reused the picture year after year. ” -revnorb

“ Loved him on the TV show "CHiPS".. ” -wamk

“ I like the simplicity of the cap. A simple orange T on blue ” -jlaz10

“ Looks like "Be On Your Own Baseball Card Night" in Tidewater again! ” -DaClyde

Set: 2004 Bowman Chrome Draft Picks & Prospects (Rate)

Card: #BDP14 Zack Greinke

“ A young Zack Greinke. Nice posed picture. His autograph looks like it reads Jil Quiche. Great looking card. ” -yokonashiwa

“ Chromes just don't scan very well.. One thing i don't like is how they warp unless they are kept tight in a box, and even then they can stick together.. Always enjoyed the Chrome line, but their production needs work.. ” -lyfestory

“ Why do they insist on the fake autographs? (At least, I think it's fake, if not, I'll shut up...) ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I never liked the black Royals hats. It never seemed to fit their color scheme. ” -jupiterhill

“ the black border cards take away from the pic, in my opinion. I'd also like to see the players' names take precedence over the brand name, unlike this offering ” -SSG Temple

“ Greinke was a punk then as he still is one now! ” -PDIZZLE

“ Geez, looks like something you would see next to a casket. More fitting for an Abe Lincoln card. ” -NJDevils

“ I like his menacing look on the back photo. It reminds me of the bagger at the grocery store last night when I told him I didn't need any help carrying my bags to the car. ” -jackal726

“ Chrome cards - Tough to scan but nice in hand. Wouldn't mind if this was in my collection, but sadly, it's not. ” -vrooomed

“ Greinke and Kershaw. Baseball's best right hander and left hander ” -Young Kilo

“ They're the Royals, not the Blacks. Wear blue, for goodness sake. ” -jlaz10

Set: 1998-99 UD Choice - Prime Choice Reserve (Rate)

Card: #184 Pierre Turgeon

“ I really like when companies use the same designs for all their sports in the same year. This is either a level 2 or 3 parallel, but it's done differently than the NBA version of same, which did not have words going up and down in the background. At least, if it's a level 2 parallel, I don't remember if the NBA had a level 3; if they did, I never got any. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ This card just looks like a kid scrawled all over it. Interesting to see a design I remember from baseball transferred over to hockey, though. ” -Luckynumber78

“ A big reason why I don't care for parallel sets is ones with little effort like this. ” -DanD

“ Decent front, again would be nice to have the team logo. Oh, and remove the ghost "choice reserve" from the front. It detracts. Back would be better with a larger number for us old guys. ” -NJDevils

“ This was a nice looking & affordable set for collectors.Turgeon is one of the best. ” -uncaian

“ They have the logo on the back, why not the front? OK action, at least he isn't just standing there with his stick in his hand. ” -SSG Temple

“ Nice set, nothing great about it. This particular parallel was a bit lame back then and is even more now. At least they were serial numbered. ” -vrooomed

“ I know it's a parallel, but that watermark text on the card is annoying ” -Hollywood42

“ The Blues looked best in simple blue and gold. No red, no navy, just royal blue and gold. ” -jlaz10
