Set: 1964 Topps (Rate)

Card: #67 Detroit Tigers

"The original photo shopped pictures!" -addysdaddy

"Was there ever a time when people got fired up over team cards? Some poor shlub missed out on a chance to get a card of his own because Topps felt the need to float the 1963 Detroit Tigers in a yellow sea, where few can make out individual faces. The modern team cards are even more absurd, because some Photoshopper at Topps has to reposition players and walls to hide uncontracted bat boys and traveling secretaries." -PlayerPCCollector

"Now that is a nice card. I am surprised the Tigers logo wasn't used." -NJDevils

"OK, folks, I'd like to talk to you about framing and white space. This, to the left, is an example of what not to do." -wmcduff

Card: #145 Tom Glavine

"The headshot that Tom sent to the studio in his attempt to audition for Dazed and Confused." -Scott Sawyer

"Look at that feathered do!" -addysdaddy

"never liked these cards, it’s like their going for a modeling job. Tom's posing like he's auditioning for some lame old tv show like Knotts Landing or something." -Tony

"I suppose Leaf/Donruss thought the 1991 Studio cards were artsy at the time. Some of their subsequent Studio issues were much nicer, and yes, in color." -PlayerPCCollector

"It's weird.. I liked the Studio sets, but they also bothered me.. Maybe it's the guys looking like they're trying to be models.. " -Mike67

"1991 Studio. What a boring set" -Matt

"You'd think a studio shoot would involve eliminating hat hair." -DanD

Set: 1991-92 Pinnacle (Rate)

Card: #40 Dale Hunter

"not liking the close up on the left, takes away from the action shot. besides, who wants to see a hockey player with all his teeth?" -Tony

"Current Capitals head coach, Dale had his #32 retired by Washington and on that evening was also presented with one of the penalty boxes from the old Capital Centre. I suppose since he spent so much time in there." -Gunny

"Card looks like it has been cut and pasted together." -GoldenEye

"Pinnacle wants to know the answer to the age-old question: 'How many rectangles can you fit on the front of a card'?" -NJDevils

"Words fail me at the sight of this absolutely dreadful set." -Scott Sawyer

Set: 2008 Topps Triple Threads - Emerald (Rate)

Card: #120 Al Kaline

"A few more swings and I should defeat this video game RPG mist! I'm down to 92 hit points, though, might need a potion." -wmcduff

"This card makes me think I am having some weird Sci-Fi dream about a player from the past frozen in time to bring to the future or maybe it was all that Italian food I ate late last night." -addysdaddy

"How do you neutrelize an acid, with Al Kaline!" -cynicalbuddha

" I have no use for cards of players printed after they have retired. But nice use of 3 hockey sticks on a baseball cards by Topps." -NJDevils
