Set: 2005-06 Upper Deck Hardcourt (Rate)

Card: #14 LeBron James

“ It looks like he's fallen on the floor and can't get up. ” -wmcduff

“ I'm by no means a fan of this sport, but I really like this card design! ” -socialgarbage

“ Why did they crop out Brian Scalabrine blocking his shot? ” -bigsmooth

“ Is LeBron laying on his back as he shoots? Sure looks that way with the camera angle and the card design. Would be a tough shot in a game of "H-O-R-S-E"! ” -wamk

“ This would be a very pretty card if Upper Deck would have edited out eh "ghost" hands in the background. ” -sascards67

Set: 2000-01 Pacific Paramount (Rate)

Card: #61 Milan Hejduk

“ Milan is one of only 2 active NHL players who were drafted by the Quebec Nordiques. The other is Bruins' goaltender Tim Thomas. Neither Hejduk nor Thomas ever played an NHL game for the Nordiques. ” -Quintessence

Set: 1981 Donruss (Rate)

Card: #231 Luis Tiant

“ If a player did well against the Yankees, chances were, George Steinbrenner coveted him. Eventually, he'd play for the Pinstripes, hence Luis Tiant on this card with the Bronx Bombers. Tiant even did a commercial for 'Yankees Franks' where he said it was, 'Great to be with a weee-ner.' I'd prefer to think of Tiant beating the Yankees with the Red Sox rather than him pitching hot dogs. ” -PlayerPCCollector

“ Looks as though someone is holding his right leg just outside the camera shot. ” -addysdaddy

“ Quick! Take a picture before I fall off the card! ” -bigsmooth

“ I liked these cards as a kid because they were new and different. I do not like them now because they pretty much suck overall. ” -sascards67

“ Do yourself a favor and check out the ESPN 30 for 30 documentary about Luis Tiant. ” -MAS

“ Please tell me there's a version of this card with a surname typo. ” -DanD

Set: 2003-04 Pacific Heads Up - Prime Prospects (Rate)

Card: #3 Ryan Miller

“ Somewhere, this card design was preceded by a marketer saying 'Give me something trendy, cutting edge! Like at internet thing the kids are using!' ” -wmcduff

“ This card gives me a headache looking at it. An awful lot of 'busy' happening here. ” -wamk

“ Since taking over the #1 job in Buffalo in the 2005-06 season Miller has won at least 30 games and sported a winning record every season. The highlight of his career to date is undoubtedly the 2009-10 campaign which saw him win a career high 41 games, post career highs in goals against average (2.22) and save percentage (.929), win his first Vezina Trophy as the NHL's best goaltender and lead the American squad to overtime in the gold medal game at the Vancouver Olympics. ” -Quintessence

“ Is this a card or a cartoon? ” -bigsmooth

Set: 1909-11 The American Tobacco Company T206 White Border (Rate)

Card: #NNO Joe Tinker

“ Absolutely love the lithographs. T-206 is the best! ” -suomibear8

“ When baseball and life were more care free and simple. ” -addysdaddy

“ A simple design, for simpler times. I doubt the 1990 Topps will be this fondly remembered 100 years from now. ” -socialgarbage

“ I own exactly one T206 card. Maybe someday if I'm rich I'll get some more. My tobacco card focus is on non-sport sets since they are much cheaper. ” -sascards67

Set: 1980-81 Topps (Rate)

Card: #48 143 Marques Johnson TL / 30 Larry Bird TL / Jack Sikma

“ They took the classic script from 1978 Topps baseball and put it on these incredibly annoying little things. How many of us broke up the Magic/Bird/Erving card because we didn't know better. ” -sascards67

“ Something tells me a lot of these cards have not survived in this condition. . . Me thinks the dotted lines be the reason. . . ” -Quintessence

“ Not a stellar time for basketball cards- giving the tallest human beings on Earth the smallest space possible on a 3 1/2 x 2 1/2 piece of cardboard. ” -PlayerPCCollector

“ You have to give Topps credit for doing something different back then with this card design. Me and my buddies did what the wrapper suggested, and separated them on the perfs. Made it hard to keep all the cards together, but easier to trade for the players you needed. ” -wamk

“ What was Topps smoking that year? ” -bigsmooth

Set: 1991 Fleer (Rate)

Card: #429 Checklist 1-108

“ A checklist...with no boxes to check. Yep, that makes sense. ” -socialgarbage

“ Shouldn't a checklist include a spot to actually check off which cards you have in the set? ” -wamk

“ One thing you could count on was Fleer organizing its sets alphabetically. ” -duaned99

“ Any card with Scott Norwood's name on it should be burned instantly! ” -bigsmooth

“ Funnest card I've seen all day ” -Hollywood42

Set: 1992-93 Pinnacle Canadian (Rate)

Card: #310 Bob Errey

“ It's a Score design with a black background. Nothing more, nothing less. ” -sascards67

“ Hockey cards sure have some oddball card designs. ” -socialgarbage

“ Look at that focus, look at that determination. Eye of the tiger. ” -bigsmooth

“ Bob's most recent employment was as a color commentator for Canadian sports network TSN, covering the 2012 IIHF World Ice Hockey Championships. A tournament that he himself won gold in 1997 as a member of Team Canada. It was the only time in his career that he would represent his country. He chipped in 2 goals and 1 assist in 11 games. ” -Quintessence

“ Bob seems as confused about this card as I am ” -Hollywood42

“ I like this, though perhaps a bit more black background than really necessary. Wonder who Bob Errey is, though. Doesn't ring a bell. ” -wmcduff
