Set: 1985 Cain's Discs Detroit Tigers (Rate)

Card: #15 Lance Parrish

“ Dear cardmakers, Cardboard discs are not cards. Please stop. Sincerely, ” -Luckynumber78

“ I love the old school string of cards lately... the cards that got most of us hooked to begin with ” -SSG Temple

“ Lance Parrish, suffering from a bulging disc. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ Funny-shaped trading "card". This looks more like a trading disc! ” -jnmorse

“ Yuck ” -Hollywood42

“ This would make a nice drink coaster if the yellow circle was rounder. ” -revnorb

Set: 1976 Kellogg's (Rate)

Card: #8 Reggie Jackson

“ End of an era card for Mr. October before he became Mr. October. Always liked the simplicity of Kellogg's cards but didn't eat enough cereal as a kid to ever put one of those sets together! ” -flcardtrader

“ The card is only 3-D, but those glasses can see through seven or eight. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ I remember pulling these cards out if Frosted Flakes as a kid. Never got a Reggie, however.. ” -wamk

“ This card sure would look nice in my HOF binder. ” -vrooomed

“ This totally should have been Reggie Jackson of the Baltimore Orioles. ” -ray fosse's ghost

“ So realistic! ” -jlaz10

“ My younger brother would collect these types of cards, i always thought they were unbearably cheesy looking. Like, wow, knock yourself out with that adventurous typography why don'tcha? ” -revnorb

Set: 1990 Woolworth's Topps (Rate)

Card: #31 Rickey Henderson

“ I've heard many, many stories about Woolworth's, but I don't think I ever went into any, or if I did, I just don't remember. This card carries a great design and a good action photo. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ The best leadoff hitter of all time.... ” -suomibear8

“ Through the 1980s, these 33- or 44-card boxed sets available at "exclusive" outlets were not very popular. The funny thing about them still to this day, put a set up for sale, get $2. Put a single card up, get $1 for it. I would guess a lot of sets have been broken up. Nice cards for the player and team collectors. ” -vrooomed

“ WOOLWORTH'S!!!!!! ” -SSG Temple

“ These cards are before my time, but they're so attractive and colourful. A nice, cheap set like this would still be desirable, if any of the card companies would put something like this out. ” -Luckynumber78

“ Billy, here's a 1990s design that doesn't look good. ” -NJDevils

“ I wish there were more one-off sets like this produced today. It would take something like this to get me into a Woolworth. ” -jackal726

“ Highlight of the year- Rickey Henderson swings and misses ” -Hollywood42

“ Green and gold don't exactly compliment each other, but they work for the A's. ” -jlaz10

“ Rickey Henderson, looks great in the Green and Yellow. Nice set, had some good pics of some other great players. ” -grim25

Set: 2011 Topps Star Wars Galaxy 6 (Rate)

Card: #641 Secura's Grace

“ Twiilek are pretty cool. Her lower half looks a bit like it came out of QWOP, though. ” -Luckynumber78

“ This is actually really cool art for being a trading card of a Star Wars character i can't name. I used to buy Star Wars cards in 1978...i guess they went on without me! ” -revnorb

“ Very nice! I love this set, but was unable to get this card. Some of the cards in it are not so great, but this one is. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Warning! One in every 66 packs will exterminate your Jedi card collection. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ I'm pretty sure this is the first transgender star wars character... ” -SaveDaKid

“ Do they have an autographed version? I guess not. ” -NJDevils

“ Damn. ” -jlaz10

Set: 1982 Topps (Rate)

Card: #464 Juan Bonilla

“ One of Topps' most attractive designs in terms of colour and flair. Glad they brought these back in last year's Archives. The photography, however, leaves something to be desired. ” -Luckynumber78

“ This card would have been perfect without the fake signature. I know, broken record. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ That's a nice looking card. ” -Young Kilo

“ Love this old stuff ” -SSG Temple

“ I love how they give an individual game blurb on the back. Makes me want to see those "2 dazzling plays". ” -suomibear8

“ 1982 Topps "Hockey" design. I remember the buzz around the hobby about them looking like they should be a hockey design, not a baseball one. I also remember not liking it that much back then, but at least Topps photos were better than Donruss and Fleer's. ” -vrooomed

“ The Padres best look was their mid-80's pinstripes. They haven't looked the same in their navy and gold. ” -jlaz10

“ I just can't think of anything to say for this Juan... ” -Hollywood42

“ When Bobby Bonilla joined the league Juan was forced to change his name to Juan of two Bonilla... ” -SaveDaKid

“ This was from my 2nd year of collecting at age 7. Back then I thought the autographs cool. Now I hate cards with fake autographs. Another thing about this set.. I liked the backs with the fact blubs on them, but the dark green with the dark text was hard on my 7yo eyes. Now they are even harder to read ” -ThemightyOx

Set: 2008 Upper Deck Premier - Stitchings (Rate)

Card: #PSTI-FL Fred Lewis

“ I know a lot of people don't like the manufactured patches, but I think that they can be pretty cool. This is one of those times when it's cool, in my book. If this is a game used item, that's even more interesting! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ No back? disappointing... ” -Dixxy

“ At first glance I'd say "Ah hell no", but I get excited about any card numbered especially if only 15 were made... ” -SaveDaKid

“ Not a fan of the "Manufactured Patch" and these other goofy style inserts. And can they get the photo of the player any smaller? I can still make out the logo on the helmet! ” -vrooomed

“ Looks like Freddy photobombed the card. ” -NJDevils

“ I'm not averse to manufactured relics, especially not numbered ones, but I'm not convinced that Fred Lewis merited one. ” -Luckynumber78

“ Interesting way to celebrate a cycle. ” -jlaz10

“ Looks like a box of candy cigarettes. But really nice ones! ” -revnorb

“ I don't know Fred Lewis but I like this card. ” -jupiterhill

Set: 2003 Bowman (Rate)

Card: #166 Jose Contreras

“ It's interesting how his undershirt is a darker blue than the jersey. It must not have been team-issued. ” -jlaz10

“ Yuck, a Yank ” -Hollywood42

Set: 1994-95 Pinnacle (Rate)

Card: #486 Valeri Karpov

“ A lot of hockey as Card of the Day lately. Nothing bad about that. This card is a pretty nice design, but it should have spelled out his first name instead of just an initial. That's one of my "pet peeves" about cards. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Although at the time horrendous, these sweaters have a nostalgic feel today. ” -jlaz10

“ Quack, QuacK, QuaCK, QuACK, QUACK!!! It's the flying V himself... ” -SaveDaKid

“ I could do without the bar on the right ” -Hollywood42

“ I had no idea they made Coneheads cards! ” -revnorb

Set: 2014 Topps - The Future is Now (Rate)

Card: #FN-20 Mike Trout

“ The first 2014 card to come up as Card of the Day...not sure what the "Check out the Wheels" tagline means, but the card design is pretty good. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ wpw, a 2014 already... ” -lyfestory

“ I don't know what it's called... the embellished photo. I understand they are trying to enhance the pic, but it just seems tacky to me. No logo = BOO! ” -SSG Temple

“ Now. You're looking at now, sir. Everything that happens now, is happening now. What happened to then? We passed then. When? Just now. We're at now, now. Go back to then. When? Now! ” -UNC_Samurai

“ One of the better inserts that I've seen or should I say "haven't seen". Either way, nice job. ” -NJDevils

“ Many people don't realize that this uniform set was first worn by the then-named Anaheim Angels in 2002. ” -jlaz10

“ Wow, that took less than two weeks to make RCotD, that has to be a record! ” -jackal726

“ The future is in fact here 2014 on the big board...let your trout hang out... ” -SaveDaKid

“ WOW! What a quick turnaround for a set out for a couple weeks. ” -jupiterhill

Set: 1993-94 O-Pee-Chee Premier (Rate)

Card: #100 Theo Fleury

“ Is there any 1990s design that doesn't look good? I don't think I've seen any! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ One of hockey's "best little big men" ,this was a nice set too. ” -uncaian

“ A man who looks like he's wearing a European motorcycle cop's helmet and is dancing with a cane like Fred Astaire plus a logo that looks like a large cheese wedge! What's not to love? ” -revnorb

“ Photo taken seconds after learning he was named after Theo Huxtable. ” -NJDevils

“ Couldn't they have taken the picture after he had finished dressing?? ” -yokonashiwa

“ The Flames have never looked better than their original red and gold. Black is a little too much ” -jlaz10

“ This is odd ” -Hollywood42

“ As a fellow little guy, I admire players like Fleury and Martin St. Louis and their ability to succeed in a sport dominated by men with much bigger frames. ” -DanD
