Set: 1989 Broder Baseball's Hottest Stars (unlicensed) (Rate)

Card: #9 Will Clark

“ Had never heard of this set so I looked it up. Apparently "broder" is a generic name for unlicensed/counterfeit cards. No one is sure who produced these but apparently a bunch of similar card sets cropped up during this era. ” -ThemightyOx

“ The only picture they could get was him sitting on the bench? It would have been ironiclly funny if this was the peak of his career, but it looks like, based on what he got card wise over the ensuing years he had a pretty good career. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Did the photographer have to sneak this pic ? ” -uncaian

“ And to think, people actually would pay REAL money for junk like this! Terrible photograph and not licensed. Who actually looked at this and said, "Yeah, it looks good. Let's print it." There's a good reason Broder became the "generic" term for junky, unauthorized card. ” -vrooomed

“ Get rid of the blur on the side and center it better and it would be a really cool card ” -Hollywood42

“ Looks like the photographer was being pulled away by security while taking that pic. ” -DanD

“ Hmmm... Looks like somebody didn't get an MLB license. ” -jlaz10

“ I have to say, what a bad picture. ” -Dixxy

“ Hehe, it's the first time I see a card of a benchwarmer in action. ” -PMB

Set: 2008 Inkworks Journey to Center Earth (Rate)

Card: #25 Key to the Past

“ When I saw this set getting posted to the Database, I was very surprised...I had no idea they issued a card set for this movie. The movie itself was not bad...I saw it a few years after it's release. I would watch it again. The 3D aspect of the card doesn't work for me, but then again 3D never works. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ 566,108 cards with images on the site and we get Bill and Ted and Journey to the Center of the Earth back to back? ” -ThemightyOx

“ Yawn.... Another movie card. Is it just me, or do others find these movie cards boring? ” -vrooomed

“ STOPPPPPPPPP ” -Hollywood42

“ OMG ” -jlaz10

“ Guess they really will make cards of just about anything. Great movie, but horrible card. It looks blurry in the background because of the attempt to make it 3D looking. ” -yokonashiwa

“ Wow. I never knew anyone ever expected this movie to be a hit. If they made a card set for it, though, someone must have. ” -Luckynumber78

Set: 1991 Pro Set Bill & Ted (Rate)

Card: #51 Thomas Edison, Johann Sebastian Bach, S

“ Uh yeah, ok. ” -Young Kilo

“ Pro set seriously had their fingers everywhere... never seen nor heard much about this ...show? Seems strange enough for me.... I'll look for it on Netflix now and educate myself I think ” -Dixxy

“ Bogus is right ” -uncaian

“ Glad I never came across this set until now. 100 years from now this may be worth money, so hang onto if for your grandchildren's grandchildren ” -NJDevils

“ Maybe if I had seen the movie.... ” -vrooomed

“ I liked the first movie better. Although someone scanned and posted the entire set before I could, this was one of the first sets I ever completed. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I think I preferred the horse card.... ” -ThemightyOx

“ Is that LMFAO? ” -jlaz10

Set: 2002 Bowman (Rate)

Card: #68 Tim Hudson

“ With the white fade at the bottom, it makes it look like he's jumping or perhaps even flying :) ” -Billy Kingsley

“ He looks like he's dancing like a Jet from West Side Story. ” -deporcoruña

“ Huddy! Thanks for giving the A's so many good years. ” -ray fosse's ghost

“ 1985 Donruss called. It wants its design back. ” -vrooomed

“ Tough to read anything on this card. Back is a mish-mash of half finished ideas. ” -NJDevils

“ Green and gold don't necessarily make the best unis, but the A's work it. ” -jlaz10

“ Not one of Bowman's finest, thats for sure.. the borders are not attractive.. I don't mind the backs, good information there in most cases... ” -lyfestory

Set: 1989 Best San Antonio Missions (Rate)

Card: #15 Luis Lopez

“ The San Antonio Missions? Great team name. Love the use of the Alamo for the logo, of course they had to with Missions in the name. Great pose and nice picture. Like the close up for the back. This is a great looking card for being a Minor League card and not a well known card company. ” -yokonashiwa

“ Minor League Card! The colors of this one are reminisent to the failed local team in my home town of Anderson, IN from the mid-90s. That team with the yellow and light blue was the Anderson Lawmen. It is always fun to see cards for these teams. ” -koloth42

“ There was/is really a team calends the Missions? ” -wamk

“ I would prefer it if he was called Luis. But looks like he was born in Brooklyn so I guess we have to go with "Louie". oh yeah, not a bad minor league card ” -NJDevils

“ A lot of these baseball cards of late aren't leaving s lot of options to poke fun at them. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ This is better-than-average photography for a minor league card, but couldn't they have had him pose anywhere near a plate? Anyone can swing for the fences from the pitcher's mound! ” -Luckynumber78

“ I gave the picture for this card! A nice minor league uniform for the era. ” -jlaz10

Set: 2004 Upper Deck MLS (Rate)

Card: #10 John Spencer

“ Interesting to see this design used on the main UD set for this sport. It's very similar to the inserts in 2003-04 Finite for the NBA. At least, that's the first thing I thought when I saw it...especially the back of the card. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ This used to be my favorate UD soocer set, but over the years I've liked it less and less. The back is awfull. It would be better if they just put the info in a streight line. ” -deporcoruña

“ The current Rapids kits are so much better than these ones. ” -jlaz10

“ Nice front of card, not nice back of card. Not a collector of soccer (futbol) cards. ” -NJDevils

“ The design that happens to go between his feet makes it look really weird ” -Hollywood42

“ The motion of the photo is going the opposite way from the design, making a confusing combination. Also, his left foot sinks into the background due to bad photoshopping. I'll pass on this set, I think. ” -Luckynumber78

“ Well, you don't see many soccer cards as cotd lately, (football, for our European members) Upper deck really does have their hands in everything. Great design and an excellent action shot. I wouldn't be upset to find this set in my collection. Very appealing. ” -Dixxy

“ Not my favorite Upper Deck offering for MLS cards, kind of a boring design. Anyway, after leaving England and Scotland John Spencer had a decent run with Colorado Rapids. He has since been inducted into the Rapids Gallery of Honor. ” -Gunny

Set: 2005 Bowman Heritage - Mini (Rate)

Card: #23 Magglio Ordonez

“ The ball get hit so far out of the park that it's in the bushes, I take it. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I hate the mini card concept ” -Young Kilo

“ Magglio looks like he thinks this card is as silly as I do. I am simply not a fan of the "heritage" sets. Just another money maker for the company. ” -NJDevils

“ Maggs, good player for a short while.. Never could come back from his injuries.. Not sure what he's doing in the photo. golfing? hunting? chopping down a tree..? hailing a horse & buggy taxi..? ” -lyfestory

“ He looks like he is in a school play, giving a big final wave to the crowd. Other than that, I do like the overall look of the card.. ” -wamk

“ Classic Tigers. ” -jlaz10

“ Is the triangle in the top left a variation deal? I hope so because the card would look great without it ” -Hollywood42

“ I'm tellin ya man, he was this tall! ” -Dixxy

Set: 1961 Post Cereal (Rate)

Card: #62a Paul Foytack

“ card back looks like infield dirt..: ) ” -lyfestory

“ It looks like he just realized that there's gonna be millions of breakfast eating kids with nothing else to look at in the morning except that 2-11 W/L stat line. ” -Id8jlb8666

“ I ate a lot of raisin bran as a kid to make this set. Probably the only time I ate healthy. After this it was back to the "Sugar Pops" as they were called back them. ” -NJDevils

“ Love this set. I have 2 of these cards and looking for more. ” -uncaian

“ I'm guessing that the brown back and all stats on front means this was originally on the back of the box. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Oh how I wish it were another sci-fi card... ” -Dixxy

“ Green underbrim!!! ” -jlaz10

Set: 1991-92 Parkhurst French (Rate)

Card: #168 Doug Wilson

“ decent cards but the big Parkhurst logo on back was distracting.. ” -lyfestory

“ Great player,especially in Chicago,great team leader.I liked this "Parkhurst" set & the next year, but after that.... ” -uncaian

“ Always found this set to be the most uninteresting set put out. And they carried the design over to the next year! ” -Dixxy

“ I like hockey cards but not a fan of these with 20-25% of the card taken up by a marble like stripe. The backs on these are pretty sad as well. ” -NJDevils

“ Sucks that his eyes are closed on the front picture. The fact that this is in French is kind of cool. ” -Luckynumber78

“ The Sharks still look good, but nothing's cut it since this. ” -jlaz10

“ Gotta love those guys in the 90s that left their helmets at home (Wilson, Langway, Carlyle, MacTavish, Snepsts, Marsh). ” -DanD

“ Looks like this picture was taken at the Cow Palace, the original home of the Sharks. Interesting place to see a game some very odd angles. ” -Gunny

Set: 1995 Donruss (Rate)

Card: #395 Ricky Jordan

“ I like this set. I really like how they boxed the player's stats in their own individual boxes. I don't like how hard it is to read the front of the card. However, I really do like the dual picture. ” -yokonashiwa

“ This is a great picture for the card, showcasing the player well, as well as those wonderful turtlenecks that were so popular in the mid-'90s. The foil and the player name are hard to see, but that may just be the scan. ” -Luckynumber78

“ I always liked Donruss designs. ” -suomibear8

“ The age of "so-so" cards. This card says so little. ” -NJDevils

“ My team! So sad that Ricky didn't live up to the hype. Nice card. Like the use of the home plate shape for the little photo. ” -vrooomed

“ This shows how classic, yet modern the Phils unis were when they were unveiled. They still wear this design today. ” -jlaz10

“ 1995 Donruss- a great looking set. ” -PlayerPCCollector

“ Am I the only one who thinks it's funny that they put the stars over his head? he kind of looks like he just woke up from a good whomp... ” -Dixxy

“ Hard to read the e-version, and the labels at the bottom could be centered much better, but other than that, it looks like a cool set ” -Hollywood42

“ HATE the backs of this series... ” -doc722
