Set: 2008 Upper Deck - Starquest Rainbow Red (Rate)

Card: #SQ6 Carson Palmer

“ I own one card from this set, but it's only because I collect the player's cards. Otherwise there's really nothing that moves me here other than onto another page. ” -Sportzcommish

“ I bought a case of the 2008 Upper Deck years ago and really enjoyed them. ” -carthage44

“ Not for me. The emphasis should be on the team and the player. Had to get my magnifying glass AND tilt my head to read who it was (sarcasm). ” -RoyalChief

“ Starquest. I'm still sort of on the fence about them. When I first started seeing them I was so turned off by them. I don't mind them so much now but will only consider my Homie teams when collecting them. If I chase any of them. ” -captkirk42

“ I love these cards!!! I wish Upper Deck (And more so Topps) still made NFL cards. How long does Panini hold the rights for again? These were pretty easy pulls but they always made me feel like I got something special. ” -nubala

“ Vividly remember entering those codes on the back of each card for a few years on Upper Deck's Kids website. Eventually they stopped doing the individual cards and just did one code on each pack, which lost a lot of the allure for me (as did growing older). But using those codes for virtual and physical rewards certainly got me as a kid buying and asking for Upper Deck products as opposed to Topps or whoever else was on the market. ” -jasongerman9

“ Nice scan! I can easily read the text on the back and I'm old! Same picture front and back and horrible design with the background removed? Panini congratulates you Upper Deck! ” -UKboogie

Set: 2014 Topps Turkey Red - Mini (Rate)

Card: #93 David Fales

“ I'm guessing there's going to be a lot of Fales/Fails jokes, but I like it....to a degree. It's bright, which I like. It's a player in front of a computer generated background, which I don't. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Woah. So much yellow and orange! Scrimmage in the middle of the sun??? ” -olerud363

“ Fales was a fail. ” -carthage44

“ Let me put on my shades then I will comment. ” -NJDevils

“ I like Turkey Red a lot. I am very tired of minis though. I used to love the minis but like the practice of super short printing base cards I am very sick of it. OK I am also tired of the RC logo. I guess they have to identify rookie cards somehow but the popularity of RCs and more so Prospect cards (sort of Pre-RCs) I am super tired of. Back to this card. Looks a bit bright. I thought it might be an orange parallel but it seems all the cards are this kind of bright sunny design. Back OK for Turkey Red. ” -captkirk42

“ Neat card. Unfortunate last name. ” -mkaz80

“ Oh look, Topps was putting their Twitter handle on cards way back in 2014! ” -jasongerman9

“ I like Turkey Red... But this just does not look right. ” -nubala

“ David Fales didn't realize the real reason everyone went long was do to the yellow and red cloud of Death that was creeping onto the field, nor would he ever.... ” -YoRicha

“ The only time I have seen Turkey Red is on RCOTD. I don't get it. Is this David Fales rising from the ashes like a phoenix? Is the town behind him on fire? Something isn't right. ” -muskie027

“ Looks like it's on fire. ” -trauty

Set: 1973 O-Pee-Chee (Rate)

Card: #274 Darold Knowles

“ So...they couldn't decide if they wanted to name their son Harold or David? ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Nice ! Love the vintage baseball , especially the 'toon on the back . ” -uncaian

“ Love it! ” -bkklaos

“ "There is no camera. Do not look at the camera. DO NOT look at the camera." Mr. Knowles thought as he notices a Gremlin bouncing a beach ball across the foul line. ” -YoRicha

“ So creamy! ” -carthage44

“ It takes more time to speak French I guess. ” -RoyalChief

“ I love the design and the players and OPC adds another layer of goodness. ” -UKboogie

“ LOVE IT! Oh its OPC even Better. I have the Topps version of this. Mostly because Knowles played for the Senators at one point in his career. During the early 1980s I tried to find as many cards as I could of Ex-Senators in their Post-Senators years. I was also pretty big into the A's around that time so... ” -captkirk42

“ Simply a classic! ” -vrooomed

“ I've never met a Darold I didn't like. Then again, I've never met a Darold. ” -DanD

“ I never really understood everyone's fascination with OPC cards. Now, part of that is my age. I don't really know what the difference is between them and Topps cards, besides the OPC mark at the bottom. If anyone could enlighten me I would appreciate it. Nice to see a military veteran on a card! Also, his birthday is one day before mine, albeit quite a few years earlier! PS - Sorry A's fans, but those seats behind Darold look as empty then as they are now! ” -jasongerman9

“ Very cool. Darold really pulls off the Wear The Shirt Over The Jacket look. A real trendsetter. ” -switzr1

Set: 2002 Rittenhouse Farscape Season 3 (Rate)

Card: #177 Aeryn appeals for Talyn's life, but Xhalax

“ Shouldn't this be listed as "Relativity" instead of the beginning of the sentence on the back? ” -rmpaq5

“ "Hey sweet thang, what's your sign?" ” -YoRicha

“ Put a helmet or a jersey on them and maybe I'm interested. ” -Sportzcommish

“ I've never seen Farscape, but it looks like a good laugh. ” -DanD

“ I don't know what this is, but it made me laugh ” -switzr1

“ I was just thinking about this card the other day! (No I wasn't.) ” -mkaz80

“ Cool another non-sport card. Very odd even for "Farscape' I guess I didn't see enough of that show to recoginze those guys. Nice card BTW. ” -captkirk42

Set: 2000 Score - Scorecard (Rate)

Card: #110 Cris Carter

“ Not bad! I like the border. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Former Buckeye, and Hall of Famer. Winning card in my book. ” -Brimose

“ I really like this score set. My brother is a Vikings fan and Carter was one of his favorites. I can overlook that this is actually a parallel and say, Good Card. ” -switzr1

“ The score sets were always cheap but were full of parallel cards like this one. ” -carthage44

“ Cards like this from the late 90s to early 2000s make me both nostalgic and disgusted simultaneously. ” -DanD

“ Nice card by score. I'm sure at one time I groaned about it just because of the time it came out and was during my non-updated days of collecting. ” -captkirk42

Set: 2002 Fleer Maximum (Rate)

Card: #247 Ryan Jensen

“ Very plain, and I don't remember this player at all. ” -switzr1

“ This design was used for the rookies in the NBA set. I liked the base card design better. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Ironic that a True Colors card is grey & white for the majority . ” -uncaian

“ Minimum interest. I don't get the series name nor the subset name and to make matters worse for my taste it has a Paninian-influenced photo on the back. ” -Sportzcommish

“ The fall of one of the 80's and 90's card giants. Also, when have the Giants ever had beige as a true color. ” -IfbBirdsCards

“ Boring! ” -carthage44

“ No wonder this design was never rehashed as part of any "retro/heritage/archives/legacy" set. Aside from the ballpark image (not team-related - same one on every card), there is nothing redeeming about it. If I'm pressed to say something positive, at least the font is large enough to be legible. There. I tried. ” -dilemma19

“ An OK card. Nice and simple but almost too complicated. Even though I like it there is something that doesn't see right. Not sure why. Maybe too dull looking? Back is OK ” -captkirk42

“ Same drab designs they've always had. ” -RoundtheDiamond87

“ Well I was not collecting Baseball back in 2002 so I had to research this set a bit, I found it was a very unpopular set? I don't think it looks all that bad, in fact, I kind of like it, however, the Rookies lack, and this is even with a 500 print run. Maybe because this was a slow rookie crop that never really got over? Who knows why a set will get released and fall from grace not 12 days after release? If I had to rate this set I would give it a solid 6/10 I like it, not love it, but I do like it. I will now look to buy one....Take care all ” -The House Of Cards

“ Future Kansas City Royals pitcher. ” -trauty

Set: 1991 Classic Game (Rate)

Card: #166 Bobby Witt

“ Now that's a shade of purple you don't see on cards too often. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Meh. Like the trivia on the back. For some reason I do not like his foot covering the t in his last name. ” -702tpr777

“ Always was a fan on "Classic Baseball"....unconventional with the trivia game aspect, but still I love them. The 1991 set I believe was the best of all of them....especially the red version. ” -tbshaw

“ I have yet to meet anyone who has actually played the Classic game. ” -YoRicha

“ To me, Classic will always be one of the symbols of the late-80's and early-90's boom era, when everyone was issuing cards. ” -olerud363

“ ...and people whine about Star... ” -UKboogie

“ The "Saved by the Bell" design doesn't do it for me. ” -carthage44

“ Some great cards in this purple Classic edition. Actually, all the '91 Classic sets were pretty good. Has anyone ever played the game associated with these cards?? ” -mkaz80

“ Classic plagairism. The backs look like mid-1980s Donruss. They have the MLB logos on the back but no mention of teams on the fronts (or backs). The '91 triangle just ruins the front design. ” -C2Cigars

“ Hey, watch where you're landing Bobby Witt! If you're not going to put career stats on the back, glad you leave room for trivia (and a player autograph). ” -dilemma19

“ Look at that stat line. That's worth $18 mil per year today. I forgot he was that good of a pitcher. ” -Brimose

“ Nice workhorse during his time, (47 CG, including 13 in 1988 at age 23) also went 4-1 during his final season (2001) for the WS champion D-Backs. (threw scoreless 8th in game 5 win to even series) ” -DarkSide830

“ Classic is one of the overlooked sets of the 80's and 90's. They did seem to have several errors though (Matt Nokes was listed at 6'11" in 1987.) They put out some nice sets, but this wasn't one of them. The red was an unnecessary addition and Witt coming out into the border and his name looks silly. ” -IfbBirdsCards

“ When these cards came out I didn't consider them "trading" cards because the first cards Classic Games produced were for some kind of card game. Plus I didn't want any because it was a multi-sport set and I didn't want some of the non baseball or non football cards. ” -captkirk42

“ I loved the Classic game sets. Except that one that looks like a pair of yellow Zubaz pants. This one is real good. ” -switzr1

“ Nice 3-D effect. Looks like Witt's stepping out of the box and trampling on his name. I only collect Classic cards of personal favorite players, but not team sets. ” -Sportzcommish

Set: 2007 Panini Coca-Cola Championship (Rate)

Card: #15 Martin Taylor

“ I like all the team logos on the back...at least, I think they are team logos. If not, I like them anyway. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ This is like a minor league card in baseball. ” -deporcoruña

“ I'm sure Coca-Cola was as excited as Taylor (in this picture) that Panini's creativity would be on display for the 2007 season. ” -Sportzcommish

“ Hate it ” -CluelessJoe

“ So many meaningless symbols on the front. They probably have some purpose, but who could know if they don't know the sport. ” -DarkSide830

“ soooooo muuuuuuch sooooooocer lately ” -Brimose

“ Random generator stuck again. Looks like two days in a row of a soccer TCG. OK maybe not but it seems like it. We have seen the back before though... (checking past RCotD cards) ...on 17 June 2017 we had one of these #185 Matthew Hill. I thought it was more recent than mid June. I thought it was just a few weeks 3 tops (tops not Topps) ” -captkirk42

“ That reminds me. I have to put the trash out tonight. ” -NJDevils

Set: 1994-95 Collector's Choice (Rate)

Card: #283 Jo Jo English

“ One of the forgotten Bulls from the Dynasty era. I've never been a big fan of the 1994-95 design, but I'm a big fan of the two years of Collector's Choice that came right after this one...I've completed all three sets and am close on 1997-98, maybe someday. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Poor Jo Jo played for the Bulls during one of their "down" years where they didn't win the NBA Championship. This is a great looking card. ” -ketchupman36

“ Only played in 8 more games in his NBA career after this card was produced. ” -carthage44

“ A nice average card set. One of those 1990s sets I like/hate. Have quite a few, not a full set that I know of yet don't want to do the whole set just my Bullets. Need to double check to see if do have all the Bullets from this set. ” -captkirk42

“ Basketball action pictures begin to look the same after a while, and with insignificant or ho-hum designing one chooses to pass. ” -Sportzcommish

“ Collectors Choice was always good for getting a thorough assortment of players. They kept the price down. And Crash the Game inserts were fun because you had to actually keep up with what happened in the games. Nice photo of Jojo here too. ” -switzr1

Set: 1998 SPx Finite - Spectrum (Rate)

Card: #51 Jason Dickson

“ At least it uses 3 different photos instead of repeating one on the back. ” -rmpaq5

“ Good thing they only made 2250 of these. ” -Sportzcommish

“ SPx Finite in 1998-99 was for basketball the first set where every single card was serially numbered. Used the same basic design concept as this baseball set, As a big fan of SN cards, I love that fact. Spectrum is the second level of parallel. Radiance is the first. I don't remember the name of the third and hardest to find parallel because they are 1/1 and I don't have any. Spectrum cards fell one per box in the NBA release. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I liked the design when the set came out. I remember thinking the holo-embossed logo thing in the middle was really cool. ” -olerud363

“ Decent card design - original if nothing else. A scarce sight at the time, though now more and more Canadians are cracking major league rosters. No need to build a wall, nor will we be winning the WBC anytime soon, but it looks like Canadian development programs have learned a few things from the baseball factory due South. ” -dilemma19

“ Love this set. Every card, even the base cards, are serial numbered. ” -carthage44

“ This is a very cool card and the SPx set is a good set with unique cards! ” -RexRusher23

“ I can't think of anything positive to say about this GU (now "relic") card. ” -captkirk42

“ Can't say it's a pretty card. Looks like the jersey was stitched to the card while it was still on the player's leg. ” -NJDevils

“ I love this set! Design is nice, but I loved the fact that every card was numbered. In fact, the only other set that's numbered that I know of is Topps Stars I think. I still love getting these! ” -Joshua825

“ Nice card! I miss SPx! ” -nubala

“ I wasn't collecting back in 1998, so I have no idea what is going on with this card. Nice back though. ” -muskie027
