Set: 1992 Score - Impact Players (Rate)

Card: #21 Mo Vaughn

“ Decent design from Score. Picture is good quality, card back is a little bewildering- in the choices made department. (A tan border on half the card? OK, why not?) ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I like Score cards. Wish they were still around ” -Young Kilo

“ "Score," ...ya didn't. Quit trying? Simple and overprinted. ” -Dixxy

“ Vaughn played from 1991-2003 with the Red Sox, Angels and Mets. Career Stats: .293 AVG, 328 HR and 1,064 RBI. He was a three time All-Star (1995, 1996 and 1998), won the Silver Slugger Award in 1995 and was named AL MVP that same year. ” -carthage44

“ Let me see those stirrups! ” -jlaz10

“ Kicks up a lot of dust with one swing. ” -NJdevils

Set: 2001 Upper Deck Legends (Rate)

Card: #13 Jim Thome

“ This is a great card design, but active players shouldn't be in Legends sets unless they are so incredibly important to the game that it would be an affront to exclude them, IE, Michael Jordan when he was active. I don't know enough about baseball to know if this card should exist or not. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Thome played from 1991-2012 with the Indians, Phillies, White Sox, Dodgers, Twins and Orioles. Career: .276 AVG, 2,328 Hits, 612 HR and 1,699 RBI. He was a five-time All-Star, won the Silver Slugger Award in 1996, won the Roberto Clemente award in 2002 and was the American League Comeback Player of the Year in 2006 with the White Sox. He is currently a special assistant to the general manager with the White Sox. ” -carthage44

“ Legends?? Jim Thome? Of what one of the most overrated players ever? All hail the legend of mediocrity. ” -addysdaddy

“ RIP Chief Wahoo ” -jlaz10

Set: 1999 Fleer Tradition (Rate)

Card: #557 Sean Runyan

“ I really liked this design for Fleer's flagship set when it was new. I liked the gray foil used for the parallel even more. It appears the baseball set was all gold foil. The basketball set was gold foil for rookies only, using red and light blue foil for western and eastern conference respectively. I wish that we, speaking as an NBA collector, got as good coverage on cards as baseball does. The NBA set was only 220 cards. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ LOve the action shot but I am really annoyed with cursive team name. Flip flop with the all caps name would make me happy. That and adding team logo to the front ” -SSG Temple

“ Could we get a larger font on the name next time around? ” -NJdevils

“ Great way of showing both the Tigers home and road unis. ” -jlaz10

“ The team name on there is a real eyesore. Glad I never collected these. ” -Luckynumber78

Set: 2004 Topps (Rate)

Card: #115 Chad Johnson

“ Good card design, and good photography. It appears the team name and his name are both foil. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I get the feeling changing his name to Ocho Cinco might not of been the best of ideas ” -Young Kilo

“ Boy oh boy where does one begin? Maybe someone should slap the backside of the card designer and say good job, oh wait that might land someone in jail! ” -addysdaddy

“ My favorite line of his: "I gotta show em' how to eat right man, that's all...I got all five food groups. Pancakes, sausage-egg McMuffin, cinnamon roll, large orange juice...I just be juiced all day." ” -UNC_Samurai

“ Ah, Reebok's cheap quality. ” -jlaz10

“ This really makes me want to track down a Chad Ochocinco card ” -jackal726

“ Ocho Cinco - which actually translates to eight five, not eighty-five. ” -vrooomed

Set: 2002 Fleer - Tiffany (Rate)

Card: #299 Mike Lamb

“ It looks like the only difference on this parallel to the regular version is the serially numbering on the back...I would not be surprised if it was glossy where the base card was not. I hope that's the case because if it's just the number that would be rather disappointing...but I know from my own collection Fleer did do that kind of thing at that time. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Lamb played from 2000-2010 with the Rangers, Astros, Twins, Brewers and Marlins. Career: .276 AVG, 69 HR and 349 RBI. Notable facts: Was a part of the 1995 College World Series Champion Cal State Fullerton Titans, drafted in the 7th round by the Rangers and in 2005 he hit the first ever Houston Astros home run in a World Series game. ” -carthage44

“ How was Lamb as a player? Not baaaaad. ” -wamk

“ I have to say, these kind of subsets amuse me. look at it's counterpart from the base set. What's the difference? whatever the difference, this one is 066/200 and that makes it worth more. People go out of their way to complete these sets? ” -Dixxy

“ Looks like something you'd cut off of the bottom of a box of Bicentennial muffins or something. Also, there's something fatally uncool about not having the team name or player position on the front of the card. ” -revnorb

“ The Texas Texases. Whatever happened to Rangers? ” -jlaz10

“ I like the simplistic square border, it reminds me of the early 90s Topps cards. Also, I love the red-white-and-blue color scheme of both the card and even the colors in the photo. This combined with his playing for Texas just screams America. The stats on the back are solid too. It's an all-around good card. ” -ScottoftheBoro

Set: 1996 Score (Rate)

Card: #162 Joey Cora

“ This is a surprisingly good design for Score...from what I've seen on the Database, their designs tend to be lousy or lackluster, but this...this is great. Stats and bio, large clear photos with no real digital alterations, and the card design is not intrusive or silly. I'm impressed! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Cora played from 1987-1998 with the Padres, White Sox, Mariners and Indians. Career: .277 AVG, 30 HR, 194 RBI, 1,035 Hits and 117 SB. He was an All-Star in 1997 with the Mariners and won a World Series ring with the White Sox as the third base coach in 2005. ” -carthage44

“ Decent back. Lousy front. Never liked breaking the names into two different fonts. ” -NJDevils

“ Even back in '96 the Mariners still wore their current uni set. ” -jlaz10

“ He always looked like his cap didn't fit. ” -volbox

“ I always thought Score had the ugliest designs....this proves it. ” -suomibear8

Set: 2009 Topps Heritage - Flashback Stadium Relics (Rate)

Card: #BM Bill Mazeroski

“ I've never seen a seat relic before. Cool! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Colorful card ” -Young Kilo

“ Played for the Pittsburgh Pirates from 1956-1972. Career: .260 AVG, 138 HR, 853 RBI. He was an All-Star 10 times, 8 times Gold Glove Award, won two World Series and inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2001 by the Veterans Committee. ” -carthage44

“ The arms on this dude. Can you imagine what he would look like with today's nutrition and fitness knowledge? ” -wamk

“ Hopefully the older players are getting some money out of these. ” -NJdevils

Set: 2009-10 O-Pee-Chee (Rate)

Card: #363 Derek Morris

“ I'm truly surprised that I have not gotten into major league hockey. I watch, or did when it was available, every other kind of hockey, and floor hockey when I was in school was the most fun to play- and the only sport I was ever actually good at. I wish I could play right now, although I can't physically do it anymore- but I digress. I think a part of the problem is that I can't keep track of the puck during the games. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Excellent front. Note to print shop foreman: check ink supply before running the backs. ” -NJdevils

“ This set had nice fronts but blah backs.I remember Morris from Calgary ,where he had a couple pretty good years ” -uncaian

“ What a beauty of a sweater. ” -jlaz10

“ Gotta love the Ranges.... ” -flcardtrader

Set: 1992 Impel U.S. Olympic Hopefuls (Rate)

Card: #64 Deena Wigger - Shooting

“ Nice action photo. Cute gal with a nice smile. A little history she finished 9th overall at the 1988 Olympics and despite trying out for the Olympics in 1992 and 1996, she didn't make the team. She joined the Air Force in 1995 as a Medical Technician. ” -yokonashiwa

“ Go ahead. Do her wrong. See what happens ” -Young Kilo

“ There is nothing i can say that would be funnier and weirder than this card already is. ” -revnorb

“ Watching the Olympics was a big deal in our house when I was growing up. Unfortunately, it doesn't have the same appeal to me now as an adult. For that I'm sad! ” -bkklaos

“ No offense Deena, but I'd rather see one of Dixxy's Pokémon cards ” -jackal726

“ Target shooting is a fun sport to watch, but the cards are such a bore. Still, for a time when Topps was still trying to figure out full-color backs, these cards are of an impressive caliber. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ many opportunities... so many ” -SSG Temple

“ I remember when this set came out. Everyone was so excited about the "Dream Team" cards, that the rest of the set was just an afterthought. ” -Bplay24

“ I bought a box of these and havn't opened any yet, as hard as that is to believe. It's more of a mental challenge to myself than anything else at this point, to see how long I can go without breaking into them. At least, I think it's this set! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ You'll shoot your eye out!! ” -DanD

“ Sick flow. ” -jlaz10

“ I wonder if she medaled? ” -vrooomed

Set: 1994-95 Topps (Rate)

Card: #324 Keith Askins

“ Not a fan of the way the name was on the front (they used the SAME design in other sports, boo!) and it's hard to read, even in person. At least it's in nice block lettering on the reverse. ” -vrooomed

“ Even Chris Gatling is giving the look of, "How did THIS guy get a card?" ” -UNC_Samurai

“ I never liked the font used for the names on the 1994-95 set. Shows up poorly in scans, too. (It's gold foil) ” -Billy Kingsley

“ The original Heat uniforms are so much better than their currents. The players, not so much. ” -jlaz10
