Set: 1984 Fleer (Rate)

Card: #227 Art Howe

"Always liked the old Astros logo. Feels very "Jetsons". Future-retro or something." -wmcduff

"Art was a very arrogant manager maybe that’s why he isn't still managing. As for the card, it's the same fleer used from 83-85, just used different color schemes on back." -addysdaddy

"Distracted by the pretty woman in the stands, Art forgets all about the photography session." -Scott Sawyer

"I love 1984 Fleer cards for some reason. Also love how most of the National League players pose shots were always photographed at the Vet as Fleer was based in Philadelphia." -ashnsports

Set: 1994 Stadium Club - Golden Rainbow (Rate)

Card: #69 Fernando Valenzuela

"Why do they take so many unflattering pictures of pitchers? The typeface is terrible too. Does not make me want to collect this at all." -wmcduff

"An inspiration to pudgy people everywhere." -Scott Sawyer

"I bet almost everyone had forgotten that Fernando-mania hit the San Diego area. He pitched there from 95-97, then retiring with the Cardinals in '97." -addysdaddy

Set: 1993 Score (Rate)

Card: #269 Pete Young

"Pete Who? Montreal What? Exactly!" -addysdaddy

"Spent parts of two seasons in the majors with Montreal. " -Mike67

"Sorry, but a card without a team logo on the front is just not a card. Such a bland card." -NJDevils

Set: 1982 Topps (Rate)

Card: #603 Richie Hebner

"Derrrrrp. (The card's kinda ugly too in that retro 80s way...)" -wmcduff

"Rich says hurry up, I'm starting to drift away to day dream land" -addysdaddy

"This set is a perfect example of how a facsimile autograph spoils a card design. When I stumble upon the "blackless" variations of 1982 Topps, I always feel they are superior in looks to the common ones." -PlayerPCCollector

Set: 1991 Leaf (Rate)

Card: #192 Darren Daulton

"Daulton seems as bored with the design of this Leaf card as I am." -NJDevils

"I wonder if John Kruk will ever be a sports analyst." -addysdaddy

"Nice card. Serious pose. If I have to nitpick (and I do) I'd say the corners could be a little less ornate. Hopefully someone else knows something about the player." -wmcduff

ps. Happy 4th year anniversary to the site today, thanks everyone! -The Trading Card Database
