Random Card of the Day

Sunday, June 9, 2013

Set: 2011 Topps (Rate)

Card: #145 Freddie Freeman

“ Got him on my Fantasy team. Keep on hitting Freddie ” -Young Kilo

“ Just waiting for Chipper to retire...my arm is wasted at 1st base. ” -Joebing

“ Nice to see Freddie having a good year. Especially since I have him in a Fantasy Baseball league. ” -koloth42

“ Definitely a blurry scan. 2011 Topps looked better than this ” -Hollywood42

“ I like the clean and simple design of this Topps set. ” -suomibear8

“ I like this design. I wish Topps didn't use this same design later for the football though. ” -Colts12

“ The Braves uniforms (minus the navy road alternate) are a classic set full of piping. ” -jlaz10

“ Good Form for a great player in Freeman. The look of determination too ” -eyoung11

“ I like the way Topps notates it is a rookie card right on the front. For years some cards were hard to tell if it was a rookie, but that takes some of the guess work out of the decision. ” -biggiofn7

Set: 1995 Stadium Club (Rate)

Card: #351 Joe Orsulak

“ Never seen that batting stance before. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ I always wondered if this guy was really that talented, sorry Joe...side note, for some reason I absolutely hate the TSC logo... ” -SaveDaKid

“ That Mets logo is really clobbering his ankles, here. ” -Luckynumber78

“ You can't even see the "J" in Joe ” -eyoung11

“ I never really liked this Mets wordmark. The tail underneath seems a bit of a stretch. ” -jlaz10

“ I swear if he catches that ball I will hit him with this bat. ” -biggiofn7

Set: 2010 Choice Southern Maryland Blue Crabs (Rate)

Card: #22 Connor Robertson

“ Well, that's not a very fear inducing team name, hah! Some of the lower level baseball teams have great names... ” -Billy Kingsley

“ The Blue Crabs play in a great little park which sits in the middle of a series of subdivisions. I've become a fan of the Atlantic League, which offers a pretty good level of independent minor league baseball for the Northeastern United States (and Sugar Land, TX). I've seen Rickey Henderson, Edgardo Alfonzo, Jared Weaver, and many other major leaguers up close and personal. ” -PlayerPCCollector

“ I don't know how it sounds to be around a bunch of crabs. ” -suomibear8

“ I would have placed the Crabs logo up and to the left a little more, just undere the center of the card.. ” -wamk

“ Mmmmm, steamed Blue Crabs with a touch of vinegar, garlic, salt and pepper, white wine (of choice) and plenty of old bay seasonning, very yummy. Served with corn on the cob and on newspaper to make clean up a breeze. ” -Gunny

“ Southern Maryland? Is there a team in Northern Maryland? ” -eyoung11

“ I've never been a fan of the random armpit loops on some BP jerseys in the minors. ” -jlaz10

“ A little down on the farm goodness. ” -koloth42

“ One of the better minor league cards I've seen ” -Hollywood42

Set: 2010 Bowman (Rate)

Card: #211 Michael Dunn

“ Cool design. Topps seems to always come up with cool designs for Bowman...even though I prefer lighter colors as borders, I would have reversed the green and black! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Wow a travelin' man. I counted 4 major league teams in there, Yankees, Braves, Marlins and I think the Rays. Everyone wants a piece of Michael. ” -koloth42

“ I like the way that Bowman uses the green. Very minimal but still looks nice ” -eyoung11

“ It sucks to get your rookie card then get traded for a pair of boots... Oh, "Uggla"! That makes more sense. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ The old 2-button design of BP jerseys isn't as nice as the current full-button design. ” -jlaz10

Set: 1994 Classic Best Gold (Rate)

Card: #36 Wayne Gomes

“ So, did Classic actually have a license for baseball or did they airbrush out the team names? I tend to refer to most Classic sets that did that as knockoffs, and not in an endearing way. It's a shame, too, as they had some cool designs. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Did they also include Morticia and Uncle Fester? ” -UNC_Samurai

“ The Phillies red pinstripes are one of the best-looking uniforms in the Bigs. Now if only I could do something about the number font. ” -jlaz10

“ Yuck ” -Hollywood42

“ I am lazy. I hate turning cards sideways to learn the player's name or team. ” -NJDevils

“ I like the photo design, but the names are hard to read. Excellent for a minor league set. ” -biggiofn7

Set: 2011-12 O-Pee-Chee - Playoff Beard (Rate)

Card: #19 Mike Richards

“ I hear this card knocked David Booth's card clear out of the set. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ I always liked the basic design and size of the OPC sets. It's still collectible, even for kids. ” -suomibear8

“ One of my favorite "modern" sets ” -uncaian

“ I don't collect hocky but this one strikes me as a nice design. ” -koloth42

“ "I'm Gonna Getcha, I'm Gonna Getcha." ” -eyoung11

“ Really like recent hockey cards. I don't open boxes of them though, so I don't get much of them in trades ” -Hollywood42

“ The Flyers current unis will never get old, even if they were originally designed in the 60s ” -jlaz10

Set: 2000 Upper Deck MVP - NASCAR Stars (Rate)

Card: #NS8 Terry Labonte

“ Looks like is is getting sucked into another dimension. ” -biggiofn7

“ Woohoo, finally one of my contributions is chosen as card of the day!! I've posted almost 7000 cards and every day I hope it's one of my scans, finally it is! I recieved this card as a "Random act of kindness" this past October, the whole insert set actually. Terry is my mom's all time favorite, he also won the championship the year I was born, 1984, and again in 1996, setting the record for longest elapsed time between titles...he still races several times a year, after trying retirement in 2007 and getting bored with it. Also, funny this card was chosen today, exactly a month after I literally came about 5 minutes short of dying from ketoacidosis- prevent diabetes if you can, whoever reads this! I had no idea I had it, and it almost killed me. Learn the warning signs, I had - and missed - them all! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I hope that at some point during an interview, when asked about his pit crew, that Terry said "THEEEEEEEEEEEEEEYYYYYYYYYYY'RE GRRRRRRRRRRRREAAAAAAAAAAAAATTTTTTTTTT!!!" ” -SaveDaKid

“ NASCAR should get more recognition than it does right now. It pretty much redefined auto racing. ” -jlaz10

“ Noooooooooooooo!!! ” -Hollywood42

Set: 1993 Triple Play (Rate)

Card: #158 Jack McDowell

“ I was one of the many uneducated kids who often got a brand that if it didn't say topps, fleer, donruss, upperdeck, or score then there was a good chance I thought the card was crap and only flies on the wall know what I did with those in my youth...probably ate one for attention... ” -SaveDaKid

“ I sort of like this design. I can't help but wonder was that pitch a strike, HR, hit? ” -koloth42

“ The White Sox road grays still look clean and new even though they've been wearing them untouched (mind the change of sleeve patch) for 20 years. ” -jlaz10

“ The BBWA doesn't know if this is worthy of being the Random Card of the Day. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ No missing this guy's name! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I don't like black borders but not a bad card for a lower priced set. ” -NJDevils

Set: 1993 Topps (Rate)

Card: #58 Jose Melendez

“ This card gives you that lonely feeling. He seems like he is out there by himself. ” -biggiofn7

“ I guess I'll just throw this ball here ” -Young Kilo

“ This is the peak of your 4 year career... ” -SaveDaKid

“ Did he even suit up in spring training for the Padres that year? I thought he was traded in the off-season to the Red Sox. ” -UNC_Samurai

Set: 1990 Score Supplemental (Rate)

Card: #54T Renaldo Turnbull

“ This is a photo of biceps and gold pants. The rest is incidental. ” -Luckynumber78

“ I have a hard time believing this is real, because most of that set was nothing but annoying subsets. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ Not much to complain about here. Great action shot, big image, border and name aren't distracting. Looks like a set I would chase.. ” -wamk

“ I've always like the 90s Saints unis with the bright gold pants and Louisiana/Fleur-de-Lis logo on sleeve ” -jlaz10

“ Is the black line at the bottom part of the card or a poorly cropped scan? Not that it really matters, I'm just curious. That's just the way I think, LOL. ” -Billy Kingsley
