Set: 1990-91 Fleer (Rate)

Card: #135 Otis Smith

“ Typical Fleer design. Not a bad image if a bit odd on the angle. ” -koloth42

“ Anyone else notice that Otis has a freaky similar face and expression as the Bulls dude in the background? ” -Hollywood42

“ This may be the best 1990 Fleer basketball card I've ever seen. Unfortunately the basketball designs got progressively worse over the years just like the baseball sets. ” -sascards67

Set: 1990 Upper Deck (Rate)

Card: #323 Roger Clemens

“ Love how clean this set design was. One of my favorites of all the 90's. ” -suomibear8

Set: 2011 Topps - ToppsTown (Rate)

Card: #TT-42 DeSean Jackson

“ Never liked these 'insert' cards. I guess you take the codes from these cards and go online to redeem fake cards to create a fantsay collection... NO THANKS! ” -carthage44

“ Oooo! Shiney! You could even get digital cards with the code on the back. Too bad ToppsTown was shut down. So much for Digital Card collecting. ” -koloth42

“ When Topps came out with Toppstown, I initially hated it, but it grew on me, and with this set I hated it more. ” -jlaz10

Set: 1997 Topps (Rate)

Card: #100 Dwight Gooden

“ Wasn't he on a rehab show not to long ago? Very sad to see. He could have been one of the best ever. ” -carthage44

“ I saw 100 Mets games in person between the 1984 and 1985 seasons. There was nothing like seeing Dwight Gooden pitch as a 19 and 20 year old, making veteran Major Leaguers look like Little Leaguers. It's painful to think about what he could have done had he not succumbed to the drugs and the drinking. Watching him play for the Yankees and throw a no-hitter was salt in the wounds. ” -PlayerPCCollector

“ Might as well put the word "GREETINGS" down the right hand side of the card. I think the last part of the design process is to send it to Mr Extraneous and let him add junk. ” -NJDevils

“ Little too washed out for my taste. I prefer sharper,brighter color. ” -koloth42

“ The fading letters and various fonts are a huge giveaway of the age of this card. ” -jlaz10

Set: 1991 Fleer (Rate)

Card: #234 Marquis Grissom

“ He looks angry...wouldn't want to be that ball! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Loved these cards when I was young but now I hate them. ” -carthage44

“ Yikes! That border is very bright. Marquis looks like he is determined to knock the cover off a few balls at spring training. ” -koloth42

“ It looks like a legal notepad design. ” -suomibear8

“ I have this set. I ways ask myself why why why? Needless to say this was the last of Fleer sets for me until 2000. ” -addysdaddy

“ Ah, the era of overproduction. ” -NJDevils

“ I think 1991 had the worst designed sports cards of any year. ” -cynicalbuddha

“ Ah yes, the 91 Fleer set....yawn. ” -flcardtrader

“ Met him when he was with the Dodgers. Great guy ” -Young Kilo

Set: 1987 ProCards (Rate)

Card: #1965 Tim Tolman

“ The home of the Toledo Mud Hens, in Maumee, Ohio, is the only ball-based sporting arena I've ever been to...it was not for a sporting event but for a convention in the ajoining buildings, however. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Not a particularly inspiring card but fun none the less. I do like cards for minor league teams. ” -koloth42

“ Typical minor league card, Blah! Love the minor league team names. ” -carthage44

“ Oh it's the Mudhens! I've heard of them before!...Somewhere... ” -Hollywood42

Set: 1971 St. Louis Cardinals Picture Pack (Rate)

Card: #5 Julian Javier

“ This card would have been much better served by being printed in color. Based on the title of the card, I guess it's a promotional issue (I don't collect baseball, so I don't know for sure) but even so the concept of full color cards was long established at this point. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ The glory days of the multi-purpose, Astro-Turfed, bowl stadiums. Julian Javier, of course, named his son, a future major leaguer, after his teammate Stan Musial. ” -PlayerPCCollector

“ Team set from 71. I do like these type cards but it should have been done in color. Little on the cheap side if you ask me. ” -koloth42

“ Something about vintage cards captures the moment so much better than newer cards...I can almost feel the, 'I am smiling because I am in the big leagues' moment. ” -flcardtrader

“ I might have thrown this card out if I ever got it. ” -carthage44

Set: 2011-12 Upper Deck (Rate)

Card: #413 Andrew Brunette

“ Upper Deck still makes cards? ” -sascards67

“ A solid design for a card. Upper Deck's basic sets were always good for that. Looks like he just saw something he wishes he hadn't seen, though! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Another young up and coming Blackhawk. Too bad their is no season for Brunette to showcase his talents. ” -carthage44

“ Sharp card design. Upper Decks does a good job on design too bad it uses the same design or a similar one across all thier products for the year. ” -koloth42

“ Hockey come back! We miss you! ” -Hollywood42

“ Hockey is dead people...nothing to see here....move along. ” -flcardtrader
