Set: 2002 Inkworks Witchblade (Rate)

Card: #74 High-Flying Heroics

“ What?! Wires?! Ohhh, thanks a lot for shattering my perception of reality. Must be why the show was cancelled. The fans saw these cards and realized none of it was real. ” -C2Cigars

“ Was this a show or movie? Never heard of it. ” -carthage44

“ Hanging by a wire in a men's room? No thanks ” -NJdevils

“ Nice Non-Sport card. ” -captkirk42

Set: 2001-02 Ultra (Rate)

Card: #63 Kenyon Martin

“ The Nets in 2001-02 were magical...one of the most exciting, memorable season ever. The Nets (my favorite team) were always near the bottom of the rankings, until they traded for Jason Kidd in the offseason between 2000-01 and 2001-02. They then made the biggest turnaround in NBA history at that time, and went all the way to the finals, first time in franchise history. Unfortunately, like all Byron Scott led teams, they did not try to get rebounds and were swept in the finals. They made it back the next year but then the GM of the team broke it up, sending Kenyon to the Nuggets. (as well as other changes) The Nets have not made the finals since. Kenyon was one of my favorite Nets and I will still wear, on occasion, my road #6 jersey. He just retired in the last offseason. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I must be really old because even though this is a pretty cool pic, this type of card design does nothing for me. And did he outrun all humanity in the fast break or were his opponents calculatingly Photoshopped out? ” -revnorb

“ Nice photo. Always like large readable card numbers. Don't care for foil anywhere on a card. Kenyon is a great role model for all of his off-court charity and community activities. ” -C2Cigars

“ I like the very readable back, everything compartmentalized. Great job. ” -NJdevils

“ Pretty nice card, except for the foil printing. Back is a nice design. This rookie card was before they started with the big noise of actually printing "RC" or "Rookie" on player's RCs. ” -captkirk42

“ Nice action shot! ” -carthage44

Set: 1966-67 Philly Gum Daktari (Rate)

Card: #60 How Do You Feel Today?

“ This is totally new to me. With how much time I spend on here that does not happen too often. Kind of cool, despite being in black and white. Any day not being stepped on by an elephant is a good day! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ As a Bucks fan, I always enjoy these cards of Robert "Tractor" Traylor. ” -revnorb

“ A blast from the past, I remember mainly Clarence the Lion and Judy the chimp, plus the cool safari vehicles. If I was older, probably would have remembered his daughter Judy a little more, lol. ” -Kaline6

“ Nice !!! Where can you get these ? ” -uncaian

“ Elephant card. Is there a punchline like "hope you're over that stomach bug"? ” -dilemma19

“ "I feel a little 'trunky' today Doc." ” -addysdaddy

“ I like this card! Totally unexpected. ” -NJDevils

“ I absolutely love this. ” -wax_house

“ Pure awesome.... love the old non sport ” -SFC Temple

“ Very cool vintage Non-Sport. I need to refresh my knowledge on some of these things I thought the Daktari set was in color? Oh wait it looks like there was also a Donruss set of 66 cards in '67 maybe that is what I'm thinking. ” -captkirk42

“ As a kid, I loved the movie, "Clarence, the Cross-eyed Lion". Then they made it into a TV series. Once a week I got to watch Clarence and Judy's adventures. I think there were some humans on the show, too. The card itself is overly simple. But I love the caricature of Clarence on the back. ” -C2Cigars

“ I have no idea what this is??? ” -carthage44

Set: 2011 Topps Gridiron Legends (Rate)

Card: #126 Jim Plunkett

“ They didn't put much work into this design, did they? Kind of like an SP concept, make everything white except the player himself. On the plus side, it makes them easy to scan. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Whoa, Jim is so cool. ” -dah15

“ There's black, there's white, and there's silver. Good thing his face and the football add a bit of color to the card. The league and PA logos on the back really pop! ” -dilemma19

“ Hey Mr. Topps, I have an idea on how to save ink. ” -NJDevils

“ Considered washed-up. At the age of 33 he came off the bench to replace an injured Pastorini. And as they say, the rest is history. As for the card itself, too much white. ” -C2Cigars

“ This is a nice tribute set to some of the games legends and HOFers. ” -captkirk42

“ A solid QB but overrated for sure. ” -carthage44

“ Too much white!! ” -suomibear8

Set: 2005 Topps - Black (Rate)

Card: #198 Corey Dillon

“ Clean card, all info on front, full stats and a blurb on back. Nothing more required. ” -dilemma19

“ I don't like black borders. Also, like most people here, I do not like the same photo on back as on front. What is the point of that, Mr Topps? ” -NJdevils

“ OK card. Never been a fan of the silver or gold leaf imprinted printing, but other than that OK. ” -captkirk42

“ Could the compress the photo any further? ” -wjsenke

“ He was a good one. Really underrated. ” -carthage44

“ Not keeping up with the AFC like I do the NFC, hadn't heard much of this man. He does have an impressive string of rushing seasons under his belt. I like Topps cards. ” -Kaline6

Set: 1996-97 Metal (Rate)

Card: #162 Sam Cassell

“ This is a very important set to me...when it came out I was in 6th grade, and very, very sick. Every day I was able to go to school my mom gave me a pack out of box she had purchased from series 1. I still have some complications from those health issues, and I finally completed the set through the Database's Amazon partnership last year. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Is he posing in front of that giant tire outside the Ford plant on the way to Detroit? ” -revnorb

“ I like the front, but why does the back look so crowded despite containing nothing of value?? ” -dilemma19

“ Nice concept but don't like the front. Like the back better, even though it has abbreviated stats. Can't win them all can we? ” -captkirk42

“ Solid player, looked like an alien! ” -carthage44

Set: 1991 Star Frank Thomas Blue (Rate)

Card: #1 Frank Thomas - Checklist

“ The Big Hurt. Need anything more be said? ” -Kaline6

“ Star cards were real plain. Don't think they were officially licensed. I consider them borderline broder (border?) cards ” -captkirk42

“ Not my scan, but a card I worked on. Can't wait to see what everyone else has to say. ” -vrooomed

“ No thanks, front isn't bad but I prefer the backs of my cards to have some kind of stats or more info than that! ” -Joshua825

“ I think the Big Hurt is looking at the same card. ” -NJdevils

“ My favorite baseball player of All-Time!!! ” -carthage44

Set: 1993 Action Packed Monday Night Football (Rate)

Card: #73 Junior Seau

“ Sad story about him. RIP. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ When Action Packed first came out, I liked the idea of "3D" cards. Then I saw them in person. Other than being dark, this one scanned fairly well but doesn't capture the 3D effect. I do own some (baseball, hockey). I still like the concept. ” -vrooomed

“ A classic shot of two Hall of Famers. One at the end of his career (Dickerson) and another just at the beginning (Seau). ” -carthage44

“ My biggest beef with Action Packed is the raised 3-D effect they use and the excess cardboard so they have to fold up the card like a cardboard box. Odd when I first got the Redskins team set from whatever was the first year (the gold card year) I thought they were pretty cool cards, then flashforward about 20 years and I see them as one of the awful ideas of the Junk Wax years. ” -captkirk42

Set: 2002-03 Topps Ten (Rate)

Card: #29 Shawn Marion

“ This was a concept that I loved, unfortunately Topps only did it that one season. The set was made up of multiple subsets of the top 10 in stats of the previous season, and for the rookies, the top 10 of each position draft wise. I really wish this set had become a yearly issue. Oddly some of the gold parallels had special gold backs, and some had normal backs that matched the base cards. Marion just retired after the conclusion of the 2014-15 season. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ pretty bad....pretty pretty bad. ” -NJDevils

“ I think Marion is the shortest player on that top 10 list on the back of the card. Impressive. ” -carthage44

“ Um OK it is a leader's card? OK looked at the checklist for this set. What exactly is it? A set of stat leaders? Odd looking card and set. ” -captkirk42

Set: 2012-13 O-Pee-Chee - Blaster Box Bottom Panels (Rate)

Card: #NNO Martin Brodeur / Steven Stamkos

“ Beware of birds while scanning. ” -volbox

“ I dunno what a "Blaster Box Bottom" is -- it sounds like something from a rap song -- but that's a pretty cool card design! ” -revnorb

“ one of the few goalies i would love to have as a flyer ” -tonym

“ Rare to find a box bottom without scratches or some type of marks. I wonder if there are any. ” -NJDevils

“ The "position" silhouettes are great, but they almost overpower the name and photo to become the focal point. Clean old-style design. ” -dilemma19

“ OH Nice two for the price of one. Too bad it ain't a Twinkee box card then we could have a Hat Trick. Very nice design. Love OPC Hockey designs most of the time. ” -captkirk42

“ I like the old/new stars together. ” -carthage44
