Set: 1990 Mother's Cookies Seattle Mariners (Rate)

Card: #16 Matt Young

“ I see that he is tossing the balls up and catching them with both hands, but the way the photo was snapped it looks like he's trying to hold up the team name on his uniform as if to say 'Don't worry, it can be sewn back on!' :) ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Only 2 balls??? ” -carthage44

“ A typical minor league card... wait. ” -jlaz10

“ Eh? What's up with this one. Did Matt to join the circus instead of baseball? A very odd image to say the least. ” -koloth42

ps. Happy 5th year anniversary to the site today! Thanks everyone! -The Trading Card Database

Set: 2010 Topps Sterling - Touched By Greatness Relic Quad Autographs (Rate)

Card: #4TBGAR-22 Whitey Ford

“ Now this is a cool card! I'm assuming he was in the Army. Why is the serial number blanked out? I can't help but think of the episode of the Simpsons where he guest appeared. Marge tried selling pretzels and it was a giveaway day at the stadium. People threw the pretzels at Whitey Ford and Homer came back with 'You could call them Whitey-Whackers'. It was way more funny on the show than my recap here lets on! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Then you really might know what it's like... Then you really might know what it's like... Then you really might know what it's like...to have to lose, oh my bad, wrong Whitey Ford ” -SaveDaKid

“ Now that's a cool card ” -Hollywood42

“ Great design remembering a great player. ” -jlaz10

Set: 1994 Topps (Rate)

Card: #700 Barry Bonds

“ These staged shots always seemed kind of like a let down to me. Considering it's taken in a locker room, I suppose we should just be happy that he's wearing clothes. (lol) ” -Billy Kingsley

“ 'I have two poses, the thinker and the stinker' ” -titanup74

“ I know they had pre-production cards but this card should be called pre-steriods. ” -carthage44

“ Unfortunately, he belongs in the Hall of Fame because of the numbers he put up BEFORE he started taking steroids. As a human being, he is the furthest from a superstar a person can get. There's a piece of me that wishes he would get into the Hall of Fame, give his self-serving and arrogant speech, and then spend the rest of his life in obscurity, with the exception of trying to charge $200 a signature at card shows. ” -PlayerPCCollector

“ Boooooooo! ” -NJDevils

“ I've always been fond of the 'diner' style font on this set. ” -jlaz10

“ Looks like Barry's head is just floating in air...not a very good look. I wonder if Greg Anderson is behind him preparing the injection? ” -Flcardtrader

“ They could have lighted this a lot beter- His head almost looks like it's floating ” -Hollywood42

“ Boooooooo! ” -sascards67

“ Any notice how skinny and small headed Barry has gotten now that his steroid use is over. ” -addysdaddy

Set: 1998 Ultra (Rate)

Card: #21 Bobby Higginson

“ Higginson was one of those rare players in the late 90's and 2000's that only played for one team from 1995 to 2005. He never made an all-star team and was never on a winning team during his 11 year career. ” -carthage44

“ The Ultra brand was at it's peak in the 95-97 timeframe. (Well, most card companies were in my opinion!) I think this set design's Gold Medallion version was the best of that long running parallel as well. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Ultra big player name. Ultra big mistake. ” -NJDevils

“ Anyone have kids that played the Backyard Baseball computer games? I'm a young guy, so I remember playing them myself. Higginson was one of my favorite guys in the version I had ” -Hollywood42

“ The full-card picture doesn't go well with the name design. ” -jlaz10

Set: 1990 ProCards AAA (Rate)

Card: #523 Bien Figueroa

“ Pass! ” -carthage44

“ This was not ProCards finest moment with this design. ” -sascards67

“ This is a man clearly happy with his life! Good for him! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Might as well hand the camera to me for these minor league sets. You want bad photos, I'm your guy. ” -NJDevils

“ Interesting how the cutout of the picture extends onto the namebar. ” -jlaz10

“ Minor League card are cool. You never know who will end up with a Hall of Fame numbers ” -goldeneye

“ Ah, ProCards. Yuck ” -Hollywood42

“ Another of ProCards boring minor league designs. This marked a departure from ProSet issuing basically the same cards in packs and team sets. Figueroa would see a brief 12 game stint in St. Louis in 1992 and spend the rest of his career in the minors, Mexico and Taiwan. ” -DaClyde

Set: 1998 Pacific Aurora (Rate)

Card: #41 Justin Thompson

“ The halo effect reminds me of a Spanish icon to the Virgin Mary. ” -sascards67

“ Odd card design. Are they implying that the player depicted has a heavenly aura? Or just standing in front of the sun? (disregarding that the location of the shadow on his face clearly indicates the sun is pretty much shining down on him, not behind him) It would have been more interesting if there were different colors coming out of the glow, as when I think of Aurora I think of the Aurora Borealis...or a 1990s Oldmsobile. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I never saw these before and they are not a bad looking card. ” -NJDevils

“ There's a reason Pacific doesn't make much any more. This one isn't BAD, but check out some of their other stuff... ” -Hollywood42

“ Kind of reminds me of a funeral program ” -titanup74

“ And no longer did Pacific make cards. ” -jlaz10

Set: 1994 Coca-Cola Monsters of the Gridiron (Rate)

Card: #21 Renaldo Turnbull

“ Wacky 90s promos....those were the days! As bizarre as this one and some others are, that's still my all time favorite era for cards. The Monsters of the Gridiron logo is a pretty blatant knockoff of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles logo, too. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ What!!!, Is this !?!?!? ” -deporcoruña

“ 2 and a half words: What the....? ” -Hollywood42

“ No. ” -jlaz10

“ Wow, you mean people don't collect these? I am shocked. ” -NJDevils

“ why? ” -titanup74

“ Mutant League Football anyone? ” -DanD

Set: 2006-07 Upper Deck - Game Jersey (Rate)

Card: #J-BB Brad Boyes

“ This is the first time I've seen a relic pop up as Card of the Day...UD could have included some foil here...not even the UD logo? Really? You'd think they would want to make the relics look as good as possible, considering that is what most people care the most about these days. The card design itself isn't bad, just could use some more foil. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ One of the first 'jersey' cards I pulled, I remember saying to myself how wonderful this kind of card is to get. I still enjoy pulling these kinds of cards out of packs. ” -Gunny

“ The B's should bring back the old 'Spoked B' logo. The current one has serifs and doesn't work. ” -jlaz10

“ I LOVE THE GAME JERSEYS !!!! ” -uncaian

“ NHL? What is that? ” -suomibear8

“ Always cool when you get a card like this of a piece of a jersey that the player has worn. ” -carthage44

Set: 2008 Topps - Topps Stars (Rate)

Card: #TS22 Grady Sizemore

“ I remember when Sizemore was the next big thing. What could have been for him if it wasn't for so many injuries. ” -carthage44

“ Without having seen this card in person, it looks like it's foilboard, and probably looks awesome in hand. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ His time has passed. Injuries robbed him. Will only be a shell if he ever returns ” -Young Kilo

“ Kinda like this insert set. There aren't 20 different parallels for it ” -Hollywood42

“ Maybe they could put a little more of the picture on it? ” -jlaz10

“ We get it. It's called Stars. ” -titanup74

“ I like the stars. I hate the insert name repeated over and over again. ” -sascards67

Set: 1993 Stadium Club - Super Teams (Rate)

Card: #NNO Cleveland Gary

“ I have been opening a bunch of boxes of early 90's football cards of late and I am LOVING IT! ” -carthage44

“ This man has an unusual name. I've never heard of anyone with the last name of Gary before right this moment. I did drive through Gary Indiana once, however, and...Indiana borders Ohio, home of Cleveland! Not quite 6 degrees of seperation, more like 3 but eh, it's 4:48 in the morning and it's the best I can come up with at this time! :) ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I always got bad teams with no chance of making the playoffs on these super teams cards, but one year I got the 49ers and I won a bunch of stuff, including a complete Super Bowl winners set. ” -sascards67

“ What's going on with the letters? I can barely even read Cleveland. ” -jlaz10

“ My eyesight just got worse.... ” -suomibear8
