Random Card of the Day

Sunday, May 28, 2017

Set: 2009 Philadelphia - National Chicle (Rate)

Card: #NC75 Peyton Manning

“ I actually really like this, which is odd since it wouldn't normally be my cup of tea. ” -muskie027

“ This like a drawing, not a photograph. Interesting! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Very interesting set overall. I like the retro look. Only two Cowboys available, but they do have a '65 Mustang - my first car! - and looks like a '70 Dodge Charger, a favorite of mine in the set. Tricky Dick is also part of the set, so that lowers the value in general. ” -Sportzcommish

“ Bought some of these because I thought I would have liked them. Man was I wrong! ” -carthage44

“ Still not sure if my favorite QB of all time is Peyton or Brady. ” -DarkSide830

“ I love this card! Say what you want about Tom Brady, but I still think Payton was the greatest QB in the NFL. He took nothing teams to amazing heights! ” -cckeith

“ I loved these back in '09 before they kept using the National Chicle design for every brand and had to have mini NC cards for EVERY set the next 2 or 3 years. I like when they bring back an old design that hasn't seen the light for ages, but they then continue to use that design for a few more years wearing it out. ” -captkirk42

Set: 2007 Upper Deck (Rate)

Card: #839 Andy Pettitte

“ It's a cool thought for a design and has an Upper Deck look to it, but I am not loving it. It looks like a Mariners card, and with the alternate shirt, it is hard to tell it is a Yankee card. Too much of the info is drowned out, the team name, the position, and the first name is hardly noticeable. Great idea that didn't execute tell. ” -muskie027

“ I'm sold! I need to schedule a spring training trip to Florida. ” -Sportzcommish

“ Is that a spring training photo? Nevertheless, great player. Big fan. ” -DarkSide830

“ This has to be a spring training photo. ” -carthage44

“ Fun photo, must have been taken during Spring Training. Never rooted for Pettitte since he never played for a team I follow, but I'd call his career a sold B, maybe B+. Not HOF worthy but not inappropriate to honor him locally in NY or Houston. ” -Brimose

“ Where is pitching? Some South Pacific Island? "Now batting for Tahiti, Johnny Bench." ” -cjjt

“ Full stats on the back!!! Palm trees on the front!!! Yankees!!! ” -jayoneill

“ Except for being a Spring Training throwing session, I like the card especially the back design. Big fan of Pettitte. I feel that if he stayed in NY and didn't leave for Houston, he would have racked up some more impressive numbers for Hall consideration. Of course the HGH thing gets in the way too. ” -turrdog

“ I don't mind horizontal cards if the WHOLE set is horizontal. To paraphrase Debbie Harry, "one way or the other". I hate twisting and turning the cards while sorting cards, numbers not where they should be. Life is tough, don't make it any harder! ” -NJDevils

“ The palm trees are sellin' it! 'SOLD!' to lady holding the umbrella drink! ” -Doe MG

Set: 2004 Topps Opening Day (Rate)

Card: #21 Jay Gibbons

“ Gray border and blue foil looks really nice. Would have been nicer if the team name was also in the blue foil, but it's still cool. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I'm still trying to figure out why there is an Opening Day set by Topps. I remember Donruss's Opening Day sets where the cards were the actual Opening Day lineups. These Topps ones just seem to be a rehash of the flagship set. ” -vrooomed

“ A little busy, but not bad. I like it. ” -muskie027

“ I never noticed until just now the drawing of each player in the bottom left corner. I like it! Back looks good too. I like Opening Day in general because there isn't too many SP insert sets to prevent you from collecting a master set, with the exception of this year (60 SSP variations, are you kidding me, that's 30% of the set Topps!). If anyone is looking to pick up this set, I have a near set for trade (missing #s 10, 25, 28, 100, 120, 147). ” -CluelessJoe

“ Opening Day is such a wasted set. At least in its earlier years, the cards had different colored borders than the flagship. Nowadays the only difference is basically the OD logo. As a team collector I feel compelled to get the cards, but I'm not thrilled by it. ” -mkaz80

“ Looks more like a silver parallel. ” -carthage44

“ Not a fan of OD cards. ” -NJDevils

“ Nice O-pening day card. The Orioles my 2nd "homie" team after my real homie Nats. I loved when Topps made the Opening Day cards more obviously different than the base flagship by changing border color. Now they just put the opening day logo in a corner and maybe change the photo. ” -captkirk42

“ I like 2004 Topps, especially the player outline and number in the front corner. Don't have much to say about Jay Gibbons... ” -dilemma19

“ Beautiful card and nice action shot, but I have grown to dislike the idea of the Opening Day series of cards and prefer to stick with the major base set release which uses the same photos but includes more players. ” -Sportzcommish

Set: 2013 Choice Stockton Ports (Rate)

Card: #29 Jimmy Escalante

“ Love that the pitching coach got his own card. I once saw a minor league card of the team's ticket sales manager! ” -olerud363

“ Cool shades! ” -carthage44

“ all that White, Blue and Red thought this was a Team USA card at first. The first words I saw though was "pitching coach" so I knew it was most likely a MiLB card. NIce all around card. No complaints. ” -captkirk42

“ An excellent card design, for presumably very low cost. Pitching coaches deserve more love. ” -dilemma19

“ Another very well-done MiLB card. I wish we had been making cards this nice back in 1988-1990. Of course, the Internet didn't exist back then, and getting information about players and coaches was VERY, VERY difficult, if the team didn't provide it for us. ” -vrooomed

“ i love seeing the obscure names of all the minor league teams, great clean design card though ” -Thunderfoot

“ I thought it was a racing card. ” -NJDevils

Set: 1998 Pacific Paramount - Kings of the NFL (Rate)

Card: #10 Reggie White

“ Interesting looking card, and I bet even more so in hand. I like it. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ A great design complementing a candid photo is paramount to an iconic sports card. This isn't that card. ” -Sportzcommish

“ Reggie run! Whoever is tryin to shoot James Bond has you in their sites! Run! ” -rmpaq5

“ He was just ok... ” -carthage44

“ Pacific's Time Tunnel set. or Stargate, Voyagers or Twilight Zone. Excellent player. ” -captkirk42

“ Reggie White truly was one of the kings of the NFL! Pacific, however, is the Liberace of sports cards. Maybe its the flamboyant crown or the extravagant designs they tended to use on some of their cards. ” -cnangle

“ Reggie was all time. This card actually isn't bad for an insert. I'd like to see it in hand. I was thinking this card is almost great but something holds it back from greatness. Then I saw it was a Pacific card and I started laughing. Pacific has had a run on the RCOTD lately and I think I've posted that comment for everyone. At least I am consistent. ” -muskie027

Set: 1996 Flair (Rate)

Card: #86 Kevin Appier

“ Looks like there's a real smog problem in KC. ” -revnorb

“ There are cards that make me want to venture beyond the team sets and players I collect. Astros only, please. ” -Sportzcommish

“ 1996 Flair...the base card that wants to be a cloudy, sparkly parallel. ” -mkaz80

“ A really good scan for all the foil on this card. ” -carthage44

“ Flair effects can work for some and not for others, but one thing that can be said is that this card doesn't fall into the trap of using the exact same photo on the front and back. As a matter of fact 4 different photos/images. Nice Card. ” -rmpaq5

“ Nice card design, but the gold and silver versions are confusing. ” -olerud363

“ Pretty Good Pitcher For A Few Years ” -Bargunmaster

“ Has a cool look and a cool effect. Back is nice too. Definitely above average, but not considered great. ” -muskie027

Set: 2002 Panini World Cup Stickers (Rate)

Card: #133 Team

“ Neat jersey design. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ How come uniform colors don't match flag colors? ” -Sportzcommish

“ Where is the rest of the team? ” -carthage44

“ WoW Panini Stickers in the RCotD? I don't recall that at least not for sometime. That is how to do a team "card" well sticker actually. I wish Topps would go back to this old school team photo for the team cards, not just one or two players in action. I'm not quite sure what the back says I didn't bother trying to read it or enlarge the picture to do so. ” -captkirk42

“ Wow, this card has an impressive retro vibe. We used to get random soccer and olympics cards with our candy purchases at the bratwurst stands in Germany back in the 1970s. They were about 1.5"x2" in size. This card looks like one of those cards. ” -Doe MG

“ The way they do these team photos on the field before a match just looks silly. Just take a knee in the front row for Pete's sake instead of crouching like you are about to go to the bathroom! ” -rmpaq5

“ Front row = Awkward! ” -olerud363

“ well at least its sports ” -Thunderfoot

“ I hate stickers ” -JoshReese92099

“ I think this is awesome! Even if a sticker! ” -bkklaos

“ I am torn whether or not stickers belong on the site. As for this one, kind of cool, would be cooler as a card. Soccer is such a great game, it just is so hard to get into because MLS isn't that great, EPL seems to be the only league they show in America, coverage isn't great, and it is hard to find time to invest in another sport having been rooted as an American in Football, Baseball, Hockey and Basketball. Every year I pledge to get more into soccer, every year I succeed, but not as much as I would like, ” -muskie027

“ This is bad photo quality for a card from 2002 ” -Bargunmaster

Set: 2002 Donruss Originals (Rate)

Card: #324 Chan Ho Park

“ Nice throwback, but they should have changed the 86 to 02. Nicely scanned as well. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I like a lot of the standard Donruss base sets from the 80's, but not this. ” -muskie027

“ One of my favorite designs from Donruss when the '86 cards came out, but come on! It's not like Topps commemorating a design from 50-years ago. Donruss should have waited another 36-years to honor an original design. ” -Sportzcommish

“ Solid card. Not great, but clean cut. Bonus points for Park. ” -DarkSide830

“ I spent way too much time playing Tony LaRussa Baseball III (1996) on my PC, and no matter how many times I ran the draft (distribution of all current roster players), Chan Ho was always last picked. Awesome and fun game, but poor guy... ” -CrazieJoe

“ He had a very nice long solid career. ” -carthage44

“ Donruss Archives? ” -rmpaq5

“ I always liked these Donruss Originals, they were Donruss' version of Bowman Heritage basically. Decent player, good scan too. ” -JoshReese92099

“ Nice retro card. Technically not an "original" it is a 2002 of a modern player and says "Donruss '86" to indicate it was what only 6 years prior? What? Whatever forgettaboutit! ” -captkirk42

“ The only thing i remember from him was the time he tried to jump kick somebody, but failed ” -Bargunmaster

Set: 2012 Philadelphia Phillies Photocards First Edition (Rate)

Card: #NNO Kyle Kendrick

“ This might have made a nice major released set as far as design goes. The color is a bit dull though and it doesn't have the look of a good major league card because there just feels like there is something missing. They could have put some color on the back. ” -muskie027

“ Not bad, I like it ” -702tpr777

“ An appealing front to this team-issued card. Its most outstanding feature is the player information banner modeled after bats. Why hadn't the big card companies thought of such a banner? ” -Sportzcommish

“ These are great for in person autographs. ” -carthage44

“ Cool to see teams still issue stuff like this, at least in baseball. As usual, my sports don't do that. Based on the text size I would guess this is 5x7 or larger? ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I like the use of wood grain for the name plate on the front of the card. ” -CollectingAfterDeath

“ Isn't a photocard just an over-sized baseball card? Kind of annoying in terms of storage. ” -mkaz80

“ I dont like this card very much ” -Bargunmaster

“ Great front. I will not comment on the back. ” -NJDevils

“ Neither the front or the back images were cropped before they were uploaded? Shut the front door! ” -UKboogie

“ Nice design. Wish there was a way to indicate "card" size (other than a larger or smaller image size that may or may not indicate a different sized card) These apparently are 5x7. I wonder if they are are photo stock paper or cardboard card stock? Personally when things are about this size or larger I no longer call them cards, I call them photos then when they get larger than a standard sheet of paper I tend to call them posters. Depends on the paper stock also. ” -captkirk42

Set: 1971-72 Eddie Sargent NHL Players Stickers (Rate)

Card: #9 John Bucyk

“ The family photo of Uncle Buc? ” -Sportzcommish

“ Looks like he has most of of teeth. ” -carthage44

“ Borders on only three sides? Very alarming. I wish they would do more portrait shots of current players (hockey and football), so collectors can see what the subjects look like beneath the helmets and masks. ” -dilemma19

“ NIce early 70s sticker. ” -captkirk42

“ One of my favorite players. Great player , great leader , classy guy. I know this is "just a stamp" ,but it is still cooler than most of the stuff they put out nowadays. ” -uncaian

“ The back of the card has been scanned but yet there is no information about who submitted the back scan. Must be a glitch! ” -ketchupman36

“ Love it! What a great player. ” -NJDevils

“ I don't have a desire to own this set, but I still think it's classic & cool! ” -bkklaos

“ William Shatner and Alfred E Neuman had a kid? Weird. ” -revnorb

“ This is great because of the retro nature of the card, I just with there was a way you could tell it was a hockey card without needing to label it as such. Kind of just looks like a yearbook photo. ” -muskie027
