Set: 2014-15 Panini UEFA Champions League Adrenalyn XL (Rate)

Card: #186 Dimitar Berbatov

“ Considering soccer is supposedly the most popular sport in the world, they really don't get good card coverage. Mostly just game cards, which I don't count. At least the scan is very good! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Not fond of soccer, not fond of Panini. Just my opinion. ” -Kaline6

“ Pretty terrible. Is this a game card or something? ” -NJdevils

“ Is 197 a good score? ” -dilemma19

“ Panini version of "Attax"? *sigh* OK it is good for what it is some kind of card game card. ” -captkirk42

“ I have no clue what the colored numbers mean. ” -carthage44

“ "2014-15 Panini UEFA Champions League Adrenalyn XL #186 Dimitar Berbatov"? I believe that is mostly gibberish, but whatever. Otherwise...I still don't understand anything regarding the card itself. Consider me completely confused. ” -DarkSide830

“ What is this odd sport? ” -RoyalChief

Set: 1992 Pro Line Profiles (Rate)

Card: #190 Keith Byars

“ I hated these soooo much when I was younger. They were confusing and altogether stupid! Now, I can appreciate them and kind of see what they were going for. ” -RoyalChief

“ When these came out in 1992 I thought they were neat an innovative. A few years later after recovering from the Junk Wars er Junk Wax Days I thought they were just plain silly. This card is interesting in that it displays two sports the intended Football and Basketball. Showing athletes are "normal" people can sometimes be a good thing as well. ” -captkirk42

“ These profile cards were a look at the players outside of the game. ” -carthage44

Set: 1995 Stadium Club - Super Team World Series (Rate)

Card: #217 Sandy Alomar Jr.

“ Interesting...you don't see photos of the back of the player very often on cards. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I actually really like this card, different perspective. ” -uncaian

“ The "best seat in the house" on the back is different and informative. ” -carthage44

“ Nice ground level photo. Those would be some good seats. ” -RoyalChief

“ Wow great photo for a card. Not big on this particular set (It is the mid-90s after all Hehe). Back looks like a disaster, I'm guessing due to it being in this '95 set. Might need to get this particular card sometime just for the front photo. ” -captkirk42

“ Just what I want to see on a card...everybody's backside. What is that background on the reverse side? Peeling paint? Horrible card. ” -C2Cigars

“ If it was a front view, the card would be better, but it would be still awful. Just less so. ” -DarkSide830

“ I liked some of the innovations that Topps and Upper Deck used in this era. Like Super Teams and Crash The Game, where you were rewarded for having cards of teams/players who excelled on the field. This is a real nice looking card too. I don't remember this one at all. ” -switzr1

Set: 1971 Topps (Rate)

Card: #57 Mike Morgan

“ it isn't too often you see a cartoon on the front of the card! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ He doesn't look all that vicious. Did the Saints have bounties on opponents in 1971? ” -switzr1

“ Classic Topps FB. Ahhh the 70's.....3 years with the Skins & Saints, yet he's got his Philly uniform on. ” -Kaline6

“ Nice card, ” -uncaian

“ This was my favorite football set as a kid, very colorful. I picked up a lot of these from an older kid on our street, as the first football cards I bought in packs was 1976 ” -CluelessJoe

“ So very very good!!! ” -carthage44

“ One of my favorite Vintage Football sets. Loved them since I got them fresh from the packs back then. I loved (and still do love) the little cartoon position character. I also get a kick (pardon the pun) how back then topps didn't bother airbrushing players into their new uniforms. A shame that his "old" uniform is actually from two teams and two years ago. (From the 1971 perspective not from today). I really really need to complete this set along with a zillion others from the '60s and '70s and whenever. ” -captkirk42

“ Love vintage cards, any sport. 1971 is one of my favs. The little cartoon football players on the front and the small cartoons on the back....love 'em!! Good old lazy Topps. The photo is from no later than 1967 when he was an Eagle. ” -C2Cigars

Set: 2008 Press Pass - Reflectors Blue (Rate)

Card: #15 J.J. Hickson

“ Nice looking card, aside from the fact that I can't read his name on the front. Maybe it would be easier in hand. I love college basketball, and I love college basketball cards. And the guy was a first round draft pick who is still in the NBA, so if anybody says "I've never heard of this guy so he shouldn't be on a basketball card" I'm going to scream! ” -switzr1

“ OK design but I am more than tired of Press Pass and its kind. ” -captkirk42

“ This was the last Press Pass NCAA basketball set. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Not feeling this one at all.... ” -Flcardtrader

“ Sad to see Press Pass dissolve. Really liked their college based cards. ” -carthage44

Set: 1995-96 Hoops (Rate)

Card: #27 Tyrone Hill

“ This set kind of falls into the "So bad, I've grown to like it" category. And could the NBA uniforms have been any more hideous in this era? ” -switzr1

“ I love that the card back gives you the players college and pro stats. The more the better. ” -carthage44

“ Whoops, we forgot about the name and logo, let's just slap it on sideways. ” -NJDevils

“ OK design but not great. The name plate/flag should be horizontal not vertical reading. Other than that the front is fine. Back OK but don't like the font for player name it is soooo small compared to the player position in the background. I thought it was his name at first until I read "Forward" (looked a bit like "Howard" at first, but this guys name is "Hill") ” -captkirk42

“ Although the set design is not great, I have a lot of good memories of the set so I like it more than I would based on design alone. My first ever NBA insert came out of a pack of this set, or at least the first one I was sure was an insert, when I first began collecting the NBA. The scan is not good and needs to be replaced- those whitish lines on it are NOT on the card. The pink likes you can barely see on the back ARE on it but the scan is so washed out that you can't hardly see them. ” -Billy Kingsley

Set: 1993 Conlon Collection TSN (Rate)

Card: #956 Alex Carrasquel

“ I remember as a kid I thought I really had something with these Conlon cards. I mean, come on their sooo old! "Must be worth at least...50 bucks or so"!! is what I would think. Oh the good ol' days. ” -RoyalChief

“ An interesting story. ” -DarkSide830

“ I'm confused by the first card. Is this his first card ever printed? ” -carthage44

“ "First Card"....except for his 1967 Topps Venezuelan card (if it is the same guy) ” -NJdevils

“ NOT his First Card. 1967 Topps Venezuelan #176 was his first card. Never cared for any Conlon Collection cards. I especially don't care for cards of dead, retired, inactive players. ” -C2Cigars

“ I really like the Conlon cards. Interesting that he's the first South American to play regularly. ” -joshthurman

“ This man only has 2 cards on here, what are the odds? Great to see these players from the first half of the century. ” -Kaline6

Set: 1981-82 O-Pee-Chee (Rate)

Card: #197 Steve Shutt

“ Goals is buts in French? Learn something new every day here! (Despite the fact that I took French in school...) By the way, one of my goals is to eliminate some of my "buts" so I can fit into the jerseys I bought in the 1990s. I hope that crude joke doesn't make you gag(nants). OK, I'll stop now! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I said it before, I'll say it again. Vintage Topps (or OPC), is good. I do like that "game winning goals" tranlates to "buts gagnants". Matter of fact, there's more "buts" on this card, than you'd find in a Walmart parking lot. ” -Kaline6

“ The quiet Canadien ,one of the best there ever was . I really like this set. ” -uncaian

“ Love pre-junk years 80s that is almost vintage, well for some it is technically vintage. Nice team leaders card, except they really should have shown a couple of the other guys it almost looks like an odd one player card. ” -captkirk42

“ Even in the hyper-offensive early 80s, to have 8 players score 20+ goals seems very impressive. Somehow Lafleur was the only Hab with more than 1 point per game... ” -dilemma19

“ Well now how can you not love this? ” -wax_house

“ The more stats the better. Nice work O-Pee-Chee. ” -carthage44

“ For some reason a goal being called a "but" made me laugh a little. ” -RoyalChief

Set: 1991-92 Pro Set French (Rate)

Card: #489 Brian Bradley

“ Plenty of color in this set, but overprinting, cheap card stock and hundreds of errors doomed Brian Bradley and his set-mates to commons bins. If you've got a good magnifying glass, you can even look below the card number to learn what position he plays! ” -dilemma19

“ Pro Set are THE most underrated sets ever produced. Great pictures. Great color. Great stats. All the players plus. Except they were vastly over-produced thus making them close to worthless. ” -cjjt

“ It's a likeable enough design. But unfortunately after ProSet printed a billion cards in English they decided, "Hey, let's print another billion in French." Talk about a devalued product. ” -C2Cigars

“ The best jersey in sports, 44! ” -carthage44

“ Nice Pro Set. Back in the day (early 90s) I was a Pro Set Head then during my hiatus of the late 90s early 2000s I grew tired of them, then sometime around 2010 or so started liking them again. Front is nice player's position would have been great, rest is adequate. Back is OK Yep its the French version. Would be nice if the front reflected the fact that it was the French release. ” -captkirk42

“ I liked this set , but Pro Set never recovered from their first infamous set . Bradley was a great player who had a fairly long & productive career. ” -uncaian

“ He was a great player. I just learned that he played for several different teams. ” -Silasw

Set: 1992 Triple Play (Rate)

Card: #232 Mike LaValliere

“ I liked these when they were first issued. They were cheap, had different photography and seemed a little more fun than the regular Donruss set. A surprising number of players did not have cards in this set, like Dave Winfield, Dave Henderson, Roger Clemens, Greg Maddux, Nolan Ryan or Roberto Kelly. ” -DaClyde

“ Ah the early 90s...when catchers looked like beer-league softball players. ” -dilemma19

“ The "read the answer in the mirror" on the back, always makes me laugh. ” -carthage44

“ The old 90s Triple Play cards are growing on me at first I hated Hated HATED them. Now like most of the junk years stuff I tolerate them and might even start to pursue the set. ” -captkirk42

“ I didn't know that's how batting average was calculated. OK, I guessed it was something similar but I have no real knowledge of baseball, other than what I've gleamed off the Database, the card blogs, and SportsCenter. ” -Billy Kingsley
