Set: 1994 Collector's Choice (Rate)

Card: #24 Steve Soderstrom

“ I liked Collector's Choice as a kid but now I see that CC was the cheap and over-produced version of the Upper Deck sets. ” -carthage44

“ The man never lost a game. Retired with a perfect record ” -Young Kilo

“ Early Collector's Choice subsets always had too big graphics for my taste. At the time, anyway...later on it would get to the point where the graphics were all the card was, and not a real photo anymore, so I guess it's all relative. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ So i was standing there, and then this glove magically appeared next to me... ” -jlaz10

“ He's got more of a hockey name IMO. ” -DanD

“ This card doesn't get THIS collector's choice ” -Hollywood42

“ Love the angle here, why, because the reality is he's either a) on a little league baseball field b) in the parking lot of Kmart or c) there's a prison off in the distance. ” -SaveDaKid

Set: 1988 Topps (Rate)

Card: #479 Brett Butler

“ 1988- the boom period of the hobby that, unfortunately, was the beginning of its undoing. Card stores in every town, fights breaking out at wholesale clubs for cases of new product, and dealers selling 100-card lots of rookies like penny stocks. It's amazing to think about how much 1988 Topps must have been produced and sold, with none of it having held any value. ” -PlayerPCCollector

“ He seems to have seen something funny off to the side... ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Wasn't he in Major League? ” -suomibear8

“ Trust me, there was nothing this humorous about playing on the Indians then. ” -Jaysee88

“ Anybody ever notice how on this set the banner at the bottom folds back into the picture? ” -jlaz10

“ By the look on his face it looks like Brett just let one rip. ” -PDIZZLE

“ Brett before his face was being eaten away by the cancer he got from dipping. ” -sascards67

“ I loved his sitcom Base Under Fire. (crickets) ” -DanD

“ "HA, I'm on a Topps card and you're not!" he says ” -Hollywood42

Set: 1978 Topps (Rate)

Card: #568 Tom Hutton

“ 1970s hair style for sure! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Back to the basics ” -Hollywood42

“ Looks like his hair attached to the hat. ” -suomibear8

“ Classic Topps... 'nuf said. ” -jlaz10

“ One of my favorite sets as a kid, and one of the earliest complete sets I have in NM condition. For me, this was the best era of card collecting (70's & 80's). ” -deporcoruña

“ My first year of really collecting and building...love the 78 set. Also had the pleasure of living in South Florida when Tom Hutton was calling the Marlins games....he was a better broadcast than he was player. ” –flcardtrader

“ I'm sorry but this looks like they handed a guy a uniform and took the picture as a joke. Great mustache though. ” -sascards67

Set: 1992 Topps - Gold (Rate)

Card: #278 Darryl Hamilton

“ Although as I've stated this Topps design is one of my favorites, the cards layed out like this I like less than the normal vertical cards. But maybe that's just me. I'm not sure about baseball but the basketball version of this set was the first standard paralell in history. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Nice design for the wasteland of cards produced in the early 90's. I am a sucker for the gold parallel sets. ” -flcardtrader

“ Landscape cards look a lot better than portrait. ” -jlaz10

“ Horizontal layout cards have always appealed to me ” -Hollywood42

“ Topps Gold was the start of complete parallel sets. As a kid, I thought the gold foil made the card worth hundreds! ” -carthage44

Set: 1907-09 A.C. Dietsche Postcards Detroit Tigers PC765 (Rate)

Card: #5 Jerry Downs

“ Are his feet and the shadow drawn in? Sure looks fake to me. ” -carthage44

“ I would have loved to find something like this in my grandfather's attic. Sadly this would have predated him. ” -koloth42

“ Hey where is everyone? ” -PDIZZLE

“ Kinda looks like Dracula! ” -jlaz10

“ Interesting way to display his name. Looks more like graffiti than a label ” -Hollywood42

Set: 2010 Press Pass Premium (Rate)

Card: #7 Kurt Busch

“ Not a race car card fan, but this is a nice picture. Like the car in the background. ” -yokonashiwa

“ The only thing I hate more than NASCAR is NASCAR cards. It is not a sport and it never will be, GO AWAY!!! ” -carthage44

“ Finally, a NASCAR card is pulled for Card of the Day! It's not one I've added to the Database but I'm glad to see it's here. 2010 was a good year for Kurt- multiple wins, and few outbursts. Kurt has...some trouble...keeping his temper in check, and it eventually cost him his ride with Penske Racing...his replacement won the 2012 Championship. This set features holofoil on every card, which does not scan well. James Mashburn got it to scan well for him, on my scanner it shows up with pink and purple lines through it for some unknown reason. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ They even make NASCAR cards. ” -jlaz10

“ His face almost looks like Harvey at the end of The Dark Knight ” -Hollywood42

“ hahahahahahahahahahahaha...I thought they were supposed to put real race car drivers on these cards! ” -Rod_Davis_86

Set: 1986 Brown's (Rate)

Card: #52 Melvin Paul

“ Did they use a stamp pad to put his name and fighting class on the card? ” -yokonashiwa

“ Never knew that had boxing cards. Now I know why. ” -carthage44

“ I was surprised to see Mel fought in the 70's & 80's. He was 16-0 going into his fight with Hector Camacho in 1982 and then proceeded to go 6-8 to end his career with 22 wins in 1986. I wouldn't want to cross this guy in his heyday. ” -flcardtrader

“ This is the first boxing card to make Card of the Day, isn't it? Boxing doesn't do much for me, but it's nice to see a different sport represented in the CotD. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Huh. Don't see boxing cards on Random Card of the Day very often ” -Hollywood42

Set: 1982 Topps (Rate)

Card: #100 Gifford Nielsen

“ This is a staged photo. Was all of the photos in this set like that? ” -yokonashiwa

“ This was the first year I collected football cards. The pennant/flag always reminded me of the 1980 topps baseball (which was when I started collecting baseball). Nostalgia rating 10! ” -bplay24

“ Topps always had classic designs. This one is no different! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ A nice set by Topps. Much better than the later black border sets. ” -NJDevils

“ One of my favorite sets. Nice big photo with a boarder that ties in with the Topps logo and I have always liked the team helmet and pennant. Then is when cards did a great job of appealing to kids. ” -carthage44

“ I like the look of this set. I couldn't guess the year based on the graphics. It could be from '72 if I didn't know otherwise. ” -DanD

“ Is the name a joke? ” -sascards67

Set: 1966 Topps (Rate)

Card: #407 John Kennedy

“ Random oddball factoid: There were NASCAR drives named Bob, John and Ted Kennedy, George Bush and Bill Clinton. I don't think any ever got cards, though, as most of them were fairly obscure and before the card companies noticed NASCAR. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Are my eyes deceiving me? That sure looks like a President, not a 3rd baseman. ” -jlaz10

“ A great set. The last I put together as a kid. love the backs too. ” -NJDevils

“ On the back of his 66 Topps card it says, 'John is well known for his famous quote, 'Ask not, what Walter O'Malley can do for you, but what you can do for Walter O'Malley.'....ok, not really but it brought a smile to my face. ” -flcardtrader

“ Kennedy's did it all. ” -carthage44

“ So is he left-handed and batting cross-handed or is he right-handed but his follow thru involves looking at the umpire? Terrible pose. ” -sascards67

Set: 2000 Upper Deck - Hit Brigade (Rate)

Card: #H13 Frank Thomas

“ Another nice card of the day selection. Good photo, non-distracting designs for the insert set. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I like the Upper Deck cards. The 2000 set is really nice and this particular insert is cool. The way Frank Thomas' picture stands out is great. However, his name is a little hard to read or it could just be the scan making it that way. Either way, I wish I had more of this set. ” -yokonashiwa

“ That's just an ugly card ” -Young Kilo

“ Soooo many inserts from the late 90s/ealy 00s.....WHY ” -Hollywood42

“ Is this a jigsaw puzzle? Because it's missing some of the pieces. ” -NJDevils
