Set: 2010 Topps (Rate)

Card: #228 Jerry Hughes

“ Cool design, and a great scan. Only in Football do you see a man with a first name of "Bronco", hah! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I like this design-big image, team name and player name don't "take over" the card, and the inclusion of the "RC" to easily identify rookies. Solid effort! ” -wamk

“ This is almost scary the way the uniform is painted on. At least we got a Colts card up here. ” -Colts12

“ This card just might be photoshopped. ” -jlaz10

“ Wow! A Colts card is selected during Training Camp when the Colts are in my hometown of Anderson, IN. This card always looked a little odd to me. It is an obvious photoshop job and not only the jersey is painted on but it appears at least as if a helmet was added but not sized quite right. Probably an illusion but his head looks bigger than the helmet. ” -koloth42

Set: 1999 Upper Deck MVP (Rate)

Card: #158 Doug Glanville

“ Good photo, cool design..this one's a winner! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ The Silver Signature parallels from this set were awesome ” -Hollywood42

“ Nice photo of Doug I guess, but I don't really like the card design. ” -jupiterhill

“ Sort of looks like a credit card with all the silver on the left side. And with that smile. . . "My card isn't maxed out, trust me!" ” -koloth42

“ Someone forgot to turn "View Proofreading Marks" off before finalizing the image. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ He is a much better announcer than he was a baseball player ” -Erik_Young

“ Yup, sideways name plus other extraneous markings make this a very bad card. ” -NJDevils

“ Doug Glanville as a Phillie! Who woulda thunk? ” -jlaz10

Set: 2007-08 O-Pee-Chee (Rate)

Card: #25 Ilya Kovalchuk

“ Cool design, I like this one a lot. It "speaks" to me, if that makes sense. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I liked this set,it was the start of o pee chee/topps going back towards their "vintage" look.I wish Ilya had stayed in the NHL but I understand his reasons for leaving. ” -uncaian

“ Easily the best player in Atlanta Thrashers history, Ilya has now moved back to the motherland to play for SKA St. Petersburg. I really like how Upper Deck has handled the O-Pee-Chee brand of hockey cards since they got the license. ” -Gunny

“ Not much in the way of a design IMHO. ” -koloth42

“ Ah, the old Thrashers sleeve insert. ” -jlaz10

“ We will miss you Ilya. Everybody, except for New Jersey. New Jersey hates you now ” -Erik_Young

“ After all the Devils went through to get him long-term, he heads back to his homeland. ” -DanD

Set: 1990 Classic Monster Trucks (Rate)

Card: #16 General II

“ All right, another one of my scans! This set is really important to me, as it was the first set I ever completed, and the first set I ever did a box of. I'm not sure how many boxes I've done in the 23 years since, (I could figure it out, but I havn't yet) but it's well into the hundreds. This was also the first set on the Database that I scanned and posted all front and back images...lots of firsts for me with this one. I was a big fan of monster trucks back in the day...starting in 1986 up until around 2000 when it got to the point that you knew what was going to happen before it actually did. Despite the fact that this was labeled as Premier Edition, Classic never issued another monster truck set. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ What? ” -Hollywood42

“ Ummm... ” -ray fosse's ghost

“ Classic was never afraid to tread new ground. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ Nothing to see here. Move along. Move along. ” -koloth42

“ Good cards for kids. I have no problem with this. ” -NJDevils


“ This looks like a regular car chassis, only on the base of an M1A1 Abrams. ” -jlaz10

“ I NEED THAT!!! I'd clear traffic SO FAST!!!! ” -Dixxy

“ As a kid I loved monster trucks. Now my 3 year old son loves them. He has a few truck cards & if he is anything like me that will just evolve into sports cards. ” -titanup74

Set: 1994 Stadium Club (Rate)

Card: #677 Bill Spiers

“ I always liked the front of Stadium Club cards, but the back always let me down. I miss the older TSC logo too. ” -jupiterhill

“ Nice stop action photo shot here....looks calm and peaceful....now fast forward a couple of seconds and imagine the glove dropping downward in the runners face to apply the tag.....from serene to bang-bang..... ” -flcardtrader

“ Great action photo, large image, but a little distracted by the font/style of his name.. ” -wamk

“ Stadium Club got swept up in the investment era of baseball card collecting, and most of the issues have lost their value, but it was a good run of nice-looking sets. ” -PlayerPCCollector

“ Back of this card is plain horrible. Looks like nine people worked separately on it. ” -NJDevils

“ The mid-90s navy and gold Brewers aren't my favorite Brew Crew look. ” -jlaz10

“ Hey it's Rikkert Faneyte! I forgot about him. ” -ray fosse's ghost

“ I liked the front of those cards. Back had too much going on ” -Erik_Young

“ Needs a border and a different font. ” -koloth42

Set: 1996 SkyBox Impact Rookies (Rate)

Card: #131 Tony Martin

“ Putting the foil over the player image doesn't work for me. The foil looks like it might be green or multi-color, which is cool, though. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I get the feeling this guy might be a rookie sleeper ” -Young Kilo

“ Sometimes the hardest obstacle for a football player can be plowing through not your opponents, but a card's funky lettering. So close to a nice card design, and yet... so, so far. ” -Luckynumber78

“ Too distracting for my taste. ” -koloth42

“ Not sure, but he may have been a "rookie sleeper".. ” -wamk

“ Nope. ” -NJDevils

“ I'm getting verrrry sleepy. Rookie Sleepy. ” -ray fosse's ghost

“ Oh, Skybox. Calling a guy an "Impact Rookie" in 1996, who was drafted in 1989 and had already caught 22 TDs with two different teams? Your vocabulary is only rivaled by your skill in graphic design. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ You are getting sleeepy..... sleeeeeepy...... sleeeeeeepy..... ” -flcardtrader

“ Wouldn't really consider that something I would want on my card ” -eyoung11

“ Still sleeping somewhere... ” -SaveDaKid

“ Back when Starter made NFL unis... ” -jlaz10

Set: 1976 Indianapolis Indians Team Issue (Rate)

Card: #9 Tom Hume

“ That's one way of misspelling Mazatlán. ” -volbox

“ I've been waiting for this. An Indianapolis Indians card finally made the Card of the Day. The cards prior to '88 didn't look like much but they were done in house by the Indians Organizatation and printed locally. This one is also set at the old Bush Stadium that was the home to the Indians for many years. As a kid we always wanted to see someone hit a HR into the Teepee next to Tom's Glove. Good times. ” -koloth42

“ Looks like an insurance salesman at fantasy camp.. ” -wamk

“ This is a good card. Nice to see my favorite minor league team. ” -Colts12

“ Tom Hume, always rocking the cool glasses. He was an icon of the 80's (but not really, but kind of) ” -ray fosse's ghost

“ The card is fairly non-descript but I like the fact that the local team issued cards. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ The shades just say "Deal With It" ” -eyoung11

Set: 1987 Fleer (Rate)

Card: #332 Bryn Smith

“ If there's no such thing as The Society of Bearded Athletes, I declare it's foundation right now! ...(card collecting is a sport, right? I'm not sure if you can start an athletic association if you are not an athlete!) ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I'll grudgingly admit the old Montreal uniforms and logo were cool. The Peter Jackson beard? Not so much. ” -Luckynumber78

“ Great design from fleer, especially the high gloss versions. The design that came the following year really had me scratching my head after this one. ” -Shane715

“ Did this card come with a bag of Doritos? ” -UNC_Samurai

“ Bryn Smith was a pretty good pitcher for the Expos back in the day. He was also very accommodating to autograph requests. At one time, I had collected every card he appeared on with signature on it. Another Fleer set that looks great signed, too! ” -PlayerPCCollector

“ Started and won the home opener in the Rockies inagural season in '93 ” -volbox

Set: 1988 Score (Rate)

Card: #525 Kirk Gibson

“ He kind of seems to be running away from his 88 Score card. Somehow they just managed to catch him and frame him in before he made his escape to the Dodgers. ” -ray fosse's ghost

“ terrible photo for a player like Kirk or anyone for that matter. Also not a fan of the design. A little basic even for 1980's standards. ” -jupiterhill

“ The Tigers are unique in the fact that they use many belt loops on their pants, while most teams use belt tunnels. ” -jlaz10

“ Don't see yellow borders that often. It looks good. I can tell by the cross-hatching this was done on a Canon scanner, mine does the same thing for some unknown reason. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ My favorite Whiskey!!! Did he invent it? Mmmm... Gibsons ” -Dixxy

“ Always wished that they would center the picture based on the player, not including the bat. Looks soooo far off when centered with the player AND the bat ” -Hollywood42

“ "I don't believe what I just scanned!" ” -UNC_Samurai

“ Love these 88 Score cards. Borders are nice, and they usually have great photos as well. ” -marcbrubaker

Set: 2002-03 Fleer Premium - Court Collection (Rate)

Card: #7 John Stockton

“ Great player and I must admit that I do like the design of this card. Plus a relic card, which I always enjoy. Although I have gotten used to the club name Utah Jazz, I do think they could have done better after their relocation. ” -Gunny

“ Cool idea but lacks something in implementation. ” -koloth42

“ Good idea with the background, but it could be much, much better. Also not the best pic of Stockton ever ” -Hollywood42

“ As jersey cards go, this one is pretty lame.. ” -wamk

“ John Stockton FTW!!! ” -eyoung11

“ I wonder if that game-worn jersey was ever game worn, or if it was a John Stockton jersey, or if it was even a Jazz jersey. ” -jlaz10

“ That BETTER be a jersey. The thought of owning a piece of Stockton's ***-huggers is more than a little frightening. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ My first Basketball submission to come up as Card of the Day! Woo hoo! I pulled this card from a pack when I did the box when it was new. I was a huge fan of the Jazz when Stockton and Malone were there, and he still had the skills when he retired. White jersey pieces don't always scan well, but you can see some of the texture in this one. Fun fact: I scanned the front of the card with my first scanner, and the back with my third. Fleer Premium was originally Skybox Premium, and went back to Skybox again shortly after this. Not sure why they used a black and white photo for this series. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Well now HERE is a keeper! I'm a fan of the GWJ Cards. Don't think it's of much value now as it was way back, too many of these "Novelties" in practically every pack. Card dealer I like sells them for 5 bucks a card. Shame. ” -Dixxy
