Set: 1995 Leaf (Rate)

Card: #25 Mark Wohlers

“ I had a note with something clever to say, but Jim Leyritz shredded it. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ It's funny how Leaf was a complete failure, while it's subsidiary Donruss was pretty good. ” -jlaz10

“ How sweet! He's lost in his own eyes. ” -DanD

Set: 1983-84 O-Pee-Chee (Rate)

Card: #329 Dave Farrish

“ The early 80s when O-Pee-Chee had to carry the banner for hockey cards because those knuckleheads at Topps quit making them for a few years. I am so happy Topps no longer does hockey. ” -Gunny

“ I've been around real maple trees forever, and I'm familiar with Canada's flag...shouldn't the uniform be red and white, not blue and white? ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I've always found it odd how the Maple Leafs wear blue when an actual maple leaf is reddish. ” -jlaz10

“ Farrish usually comes out on top... by a fraction. It's not enough to complain about, though, so it must still be fair? ” -Dixxy

“ Whenever they show a Leafs card (like this one), I'm embarrased to say I don't own it. Farrish is now an assistant coach to Randy Carlyle in Toronto. ” -DanD

Set: 1993 Studio (Rate)

Card: #51 Darren Daulton

“ That's one big P. Goes with the big mullet. Interesting card, not a particularly good design, but interesting! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I loved this set. ” -Mike67

“ Darren's having an out-of-body experience. "Dude, where'd this giant ball cap come from?!?" ” -UNC_Samurai

“ I always liked this year of Studio with the facsimile auto and full bleed design. ” -suomibear8

“ I think this design is pretty neat. ” -Colts12

“ Part of my initial attraction to MLB was the logos and uniforms. This was probably my favorite set in 1993 because of the closeup of the hat logos in the background. ” -duaned99

“ Mullet. Doesn't matter if the card design is nice or not, I can't stop staring at the mullet. I feel like Austin Powers and the Mole. ” -wamk

“ I love his signature! Oh wait, you can't tell! White on white? Awesome idea, Studio ” -Hollywood42

“ I wonder what team he's on. ” -jlaz10

“ How about the back of the Random Card of the Day for a change? After all, it's half the card. Some backs are great, others are horrid. ” -NJDevils

“ They call him "Daulton". Great era for the Phils, didn't care for Studio. ” -tonym

Set: 1997 Pacific Philadelphia (Rate)

Card: #326 Steve Young

“ Overall card design : Meh. Don't really like this design much at all...and I can't tell if the passing title he won was 1990 or 1996? I'm guessing the latter based on the date of issue and the Pacific logo, but it's not really clear. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I don't really care for this one. Good player. ” -Colts12

“ Pacific got goofy during the mid- to late-1990s. I'm surprised when I come across these cards in my collection and they're not shaped like crowns, or giant fold-outs. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ Steve young...whatever. Trent Dilfer quarterbacked a Super Bowl winner as well. Keep crying Young, you're no Montana and never will be seen as such. ” -SSG Temple

“ If your gonna make a set for Philadelphia, at least have the players in that set have a relation to the city! ” -jlaz10

“ Always thought filling Joe's shoes was going to be difficult, but well done Steve! ” -tonym

“ Giddiap Cowboy! The saloon's got your wanted poster up. Time to pass a fumble and skip town bucky! ” -Dixxy

Set: 1992-93 Upper Deck (Rate)

Card: #229 Jakob Karlsson

“ Something seems weird here ” -Hollywood42

“ I really like how the old Upper Deck cards had large pictures. What happened? ” -jlaz10

“ Maybe if Sidney Crosby wore one of those face shields he wouldn't have gotten his teeth knocked out. ” -bigsmooth

“ why does it look to me like this guy is playing electric guitar..... ” -flcardtrader

“ Quality card. Nice to see UD gave some coverage to the rest of the world of hockey besides the NHL. Wish they had done that sort of thing for the sports I collect! ” -Billy Kingsley

Set: 2004 Topps (Rate)

Card: #461 Brad Lidge

“ Not a bad design, but not a great one either. I do like it much better than the 2005 design with which I constantly mistake it for. The period between 2004-2007 seemed like the Topps design department really had no direction. ” -socialgarbage

“ Nice big image, decent overall design. The only thing I don't like is the player's number in the lower left.. ” -wamk

“ Surprisingly I only have one card from this set. ” -jlaz10

“ Very simple. Topps has always been good at K.I.S.S. Keep it simple, stupid. ” -Dixxy

“ This design looks very much inspired by the 70s and 80s Topps designs, and that's a good thing. It would have been better though if the image was squared, and didn't have that tiny line drawing version of the player on the bottom left...it doesn't really add anything and even kind of detracts from the card. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ A good card for the modern era. Topps kept is simple and made a nice card. ” -NJDevils

“ Thats a good design. I never had any though. ” -Colts12

Set: 2001 Upper Deck Vintage (Rate)

Card: #346 Ichiro Suzuki / Ryan Franklin / Ryan Christianson

“ Never understood why Upper Deck made vintage cards. Considering they only started in 1989 ” -Young Kilo

“ I am not a fan of the floating heads cards, they just creep me out. ” -Gunny

“ It's okay to have "throwback" designs, but it's not okay when it's based off of Topps 1962. ” -jlaz10

“ Wait! Didn't I see this card on an old Star Trek episode ! ” -uncaian

“ Ahhh! Floating disembodied heads! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Ick ” -Hollywood42

“ I didn't realize Upper Deck was into saving paper... ” -Dixxy

“ Yikes! Severed baseball players heads. Looks like something out of a zombie appocalypse movie. ” -koloth42

Set: 1953 Topps (Rate)

Card: #164 Frank Shea

“ Classic design. It's been quite a while since a vintage Topps card was chosen as Card of the Day. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I love cards like this, pure artwork...even if this shape, this card is visually better than 75% of cards ever made... ” -SaveDaKid

“ Didn't they have cameras in 1953? Why take the time to paint a portrait when one push of a button does the job for you? ” -jlaz10

“ Beautiful card. These guys had to have off-season jobs to make a living. They weren't getting paid $4000 per AB. ” -NJDevils

“ One of the greatest designs in sports card history. ” -bigsmooth

Set: 1982 Topps (Rate)

Card: #157 Stanley Morgan

“ I have money invested with this guy. Oh no, no, no. It's Morgan Stanley I'm thinking of. ” -deporcoruña

“ Flashback to my youth. :-D ” -koloth42

“ 1982, the year Topps got a licensing deal with NFL Properties and the end of the silly airbrushed helmets era. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ Seems like a movie slogan- Stanley Morgan...in ACTION ” -Hollywood42

“ Great job by Topps...if I collected Football this is a card I'd be looking for. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Topps Executive Conversation: "Considering most of the time football players are in action, we should make a line of cards with players in action instead of just having the regular cards in action." ” -jlaz10

“ "I love you, leg!" ” -Dixxy

“ One of the best sets ever ” -SSG Temple

Set: 1955 Bowman (Rate)

Card: #84 George Freese

“ Two cards from the same set in as many days. At least it's a cool set design... ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Ooo. A Back to the future card. Seems to me though that the TV in Marty's grandparent's house didn't get that clear of a reception. ” -koloth42

“ Loved these cards and always liked how the card portrayed that you were watching these players on a TV. ” -carthage44

“ It's almost like real life... or should I say TV? ” -jlaz10

“ Freese? I didn't even know the pause function existed back then. ” -DanD

“ Top 2 things that popped to mind when I saw this card: 1. Old Bowman set 2. David Freese ” -Hollywood42
