Random Card of the Day

Sunday, January 22, 2017

Set: 2001 Stadium Club (Rate)

Card: #123 David Justice

“ I like it. Stadium Club picture quality is again high. Their is an odd feeling that I am looking at a card back because of the design of the name and year. I feel like every Stadium Club card gives me the same thoughts...awesome picture, bad stats. Overall, I'll take it. ” -muskie027

“ I like this design better than the Stadium Club set shown by Barry Bonds a few days ago. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Steroids helped him play much longer than he should have. ” -carthage44

“ Ah Stadium Club. Most years it is a welcome sight. There have been a few years where it was too tacky or shiny or just unattractive. This is not one of those bad apples. ” -captkirk42

“ Nice clean look to this card. The stat break down on the back is quite extensive. ” -rmpaq5

Set: 1992 All World (Rate)

Card: #238 Calvin Williams

“ Very patriotic, and very much a ail. Too much flag, no team logo, it looks incomplete. The back reminds me of early Upper Deck. It isn't too bad, but overall, I don't like it. ” -muskie027

“ Cool design, great scan. This one's a winner! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I've got a few of these cards from this set. I'm mixed on it. At first I wasn't going to try to look for them, then I thought I would since it is kind of scarce, then I thought no because I didn't really like the design, then I thought I would again. Now I'm not sure where I stand on them. Do like the patriotic flag design maybe that is what keeps me coming back to this. ” -captkirk42

“ As a proud American I love our flag, but Old Glory seems out of place on these cards for the most part. Checking out the set there are some where the flag's integrated well, albeit in the same banner-like way, so maybe it's because I'm a Cowboys fan and Calvin Williams played for the Eaglets. ” -Sportzcommish

“ The flag just overpowers the card. ” -carthage44

“ This company should have stuck to CFL cards. Personally, I didn't appreciate that every other card in the set displayed the American flag backwards. Maybe that's why 1992 was their only NFL issue. Their design reminds me of Upper Deck issues. ” -C2Cigars

“ This Eagles receiver selflessly pushed his opponent out of the way of a dangerous flying flag. ” -revnorb

“ I don't like the flag being on the top. Maybe they should've put the flag at the bottom with the name? ” -TradingCards964

Set: 2002 Topps - Ring of Honor (Rate)

Card: #JM19 Joe Montana

“ For an insert, this works very well. If my calculations are correct it will come up as Card of the Day on the 32nd anniversary of the game it commemorates. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ This guy is really a legend. Even in cold Finland in 80s and early 90s where american football was unknown territory and it couldn't be seen anywhere, kids knew Joe Montana name basis and some got even 49ers shirts and caps. And I can safely say that he was only american football player that anyone could name. Ahh... those were the days when american cultural invasion really took off... ” -Duke

“ Normally one is trying to throw the ball into the hole not out of it. ” -Sportzcommish

“ Damn he was good! ” -carthage44

“ Loved when Montana played for the 49ers. Bets that Jerry Rice was on the other side of the throw. ” -Kirokyukan

“ Nice action shot! I have always liked cards that commemorate a single game. Classic card! Classic player! ” -jayoneill

“ I thought these cards were nice, and appreciated that they continued for a few years with the latest SB MVPs. Subtle difference also that the back pic is not just a recropped version of the front pic, but two different shots. Joe still gets my vote for GOAT, even though I know the conversation has debate. ” -Brimose

“ Great photo for the design. I like the look of this card. ” -rmpaq5

“ To showcase legendary players, I would have expected a much nicer looking card. Nothing special about it. ” -dilemma19

“ I actually really like this insert card. I have a soft spot for all things Super Bowl. I loved when Pro Set had the Super Bowl tribute set and the MVP inserts. This looks way nicer. The back is cool, the coloring is awesome. The name could be a little better, but I think it is a two thumbs up! ” -muskie027

“ I sort of like these Ring of Honor cards now. When I first saw them I hated them. Nice looking design, but I hated it at first because it is in ugly colors. Another question about these cards is WHICH Ring of Honor? The Hall of Fame, which I think it is, or the Team's Ring of Honor in their stadium? Or some made up based on fans reactions to certain superstars? ” -captkirk42

Set: 2008-09 SPx (Rate)

Card: #73 Monta Ellis

“ These cards are die cut. When Ellis was traded to the Bucks the Warriors fans booed so badly that it cost GM Chris Mullin his job. The trade was made so Steph Curry could become starter. I think it worked out well for the Warriors, considering Steph is two time consecutive NBA MVP. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ This card is about SPx... oh wait, there is a player somewhere. ” -Duke

“ This guy seems like he has been around forever! Because he has, rookie in 2005 out of high school and he is still only 31 years old! Remember when players could do that and skip college? ” -carthage44

“ Oh, wait, there's a picture of a basketball player there! ” -Sportzcommish

“ Neat card. A bit too much branding and microscopic text to suit my taste, but all the essentials are there. The die-cutting seems a bit unnecessary. Maybe it makes the card more aerodynamic when playing "closest to the wall"? ” -dilemma19

“ I like The digital letters in the background of the card. ” -TradingCards964

“ Another decent action shot with a bunch of nonsense thrown around it for the NBA. Add an SPX ticker tape below an SPx logo, cram the word Warriors in there, but make it hard to read and make the name even harder to catch and you get another bad batch of whatever. The back is nice. ” -muskie027

“ Although, the photo quality and card stock are excellent, typical of an SP release, I have never been a fan of die-cut base sets. Harder to store, display, keep in good condition, etc. Though I don't collect basketball, I do have a good many of the football issue of this set. The overall design is lacking; offset "X" consisting of team colors in the background, along with blurred digital effects. Screams lazy design team. Back of the card is functional and does not deter, at least. ” -rolmodel12

“ I'm gonna give this one a big "whatever". ” -NJDevils

“ Not a huge fan of die-cut anymore. This one is OK. Not great but OK. ” -captkirk42

“ What surprised me most about this card is that Billy didn't submit it! ” -cynicalbuddha

“ Never seen this set before. In general I like the design although I think they may have overdone it a little bit with how many times it says SPX. ” -Mitch

“ Gross!! I would've guessed this card was almost 10 years older than it is. ” -DanD

Set: 2004 Leaf Certified Materials (Rate)

Card: #88 Rich Gannon

“ OK. Standard sort of shiny early 2000s card. Simple Certified design. Not much imagination here. ” -captkirk42

“ Nice scan of a foil card. Design is not really good, but being a player superimposed over a computer generated back drop that's to be expected. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Boring design, as it says materials is it supposed to have game used on it? ” -aussiewayne

“ Not a terrible card, but reminds me more of a poster. Both front and back are sparse, and text is a bit small. ” -dilemma19

“ He didn't hit his peak until well into his 30's. ” -carthage44

“ It looks like they tried hard. There is some symmetry, the vertical lining, the centering of Gannon, the reciprocal striping on the sides. It all ends up being just ok. ” -muskie027

“ meh ” -hphillips

“ I have never really liked Certified stuff. Any truth to the rumor that the Raiders coaching staff purposely threw the Super Bowl to help out Gruden and tick off Al Davis? ” -cjjt

Set: 1999 Press Pass - Hardware (Rate)

Card: #HW8 Champ Bailey

“ Knowing Press Pass and scans as I do, I suspect this card it etched foil and looks a lot better in person. It kind of looks like he is jumping through a hoop, and the orange theme almost seems to make it look like he is jumping through a ring of fire. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I didn't know Champ Bailey was in The Matrix! Maybe he should have taken the blue pill. ” -Sportzcommish

“ This is just ugly, ugly ugly. He looks like he is trapped in the Eye of Sauron. ” -rmpaq5

“ I'm a very talented football player, but I can't escape from this black hole!! Help!!!!!!!! ” -dilemma19

“ Ah, a player that is now working for NFL Network. ” -TradingCards964

“ Woof. I hope this looks better in hand, but he's about to be eaten by the nothing. ” -marcbrubaker

“ I like it. Press Pass did some interesting things in the late 90s. Always liked their stuff back then. ” -cjjt

“ The back is cool. The front is ok. I can't tell if I like it or not. As an insert set, I think I would lean toward liking it, but definitely not loving it. ” -muskie027

Set: 2003-04 Fleer Platinum - Nameplates (Rate)

Card: #NP/MP Mickael Pietrus

“ I love the concept of this series, even if this design is not as nice as the two previous years. The patch is taken from the player's name on the back of the jersey. The fact that they messed with the exposure of the image really takes away from the design. The previous year was based off an automotive license plate, which I like much better. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Not a big fan of memorabilia cards that destroy jerseys and other game used equipment. Not the most attractive design, but still better than most current Panini products. Front scan is a bit dark. ” -hphillips

“ As a hockey collector I don't often comment basketball cards, but this one deserves a word or two. I really like that yellowish goldish mood in this card and serial numbered cards are always cool. That patch suits perfectly to this card and set. Other cards I've seen in this set aren't so nice. Blue bar and quirky platinum word spoils a little bit, but definitely thumbs up. ” -Duke

“ Two-color jersey piece, more valuable than just a single color piece. ” -carthage44

“ Nice card as GU (or now relic?) cards go. I like it is serial numbered. I really think that ALL relic cards (and autograph cards) should be serial numbered since there is a limited amount of little one inch squares you can laser cut and get onto cards. ” -captkirk42

“ Pleasant looking card. Too much background stuff covered up ” -jayoneill

“ Nice Sketch, not a fan of the "Warriors" Font. Or the orange/yellow background. But you can't omplain about the patch of fleer platinum. ” -TradingCards964

“ Reminds me of a magazine cover. ” -dilemma19

“ I like the odd serial number ” -cjjt

“ Wow, that's...aggressive. Like what a giant card on a Begas hotel would look like. Says "Warriors" three times, "Fleer" twice, and "Platinum" twice on the front. Guess some stuff is worth repeating. Or not. ” -Vvvergeer

Set: 2000-01 Fleer Mystique - NBAwesome (Rate)

Card: #8NA Allen Iverson

“ This insert was printed on white plastic stock. Iverson won MVP that year and led his team to the NBA Finals, but they fell to the Lakers in the middle of their Three-Peat. And he accomplished it all without practicing :) At 6 foot even, Allen Iverson is the shortest NBA MVP in my lifetime (although he's still taller than me) ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Also, the NBAwesome, team name, Mystique name and the design at the bottom are printed in holofoil. Looks great in hand but scans nearly white, which makes it hard to see on the white background. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ OH a change of Sport we haven't had Basketball in a while.Cool front design, although I am tired of the modern designs with the player photographed in front of a green screen and their image pasted into some strange background design. ” -captkirk42

“ Ick. Busy and blurry. I pretty much hate anything that asserts for itself that it's awesome. Are those Olympic Rings? And, oh dear, I just read the silliness on the back. Just no. ” -Vvvergeer

“ They mystery to me is why there needs to be so many sets from one company. Points off for the same photo on the front and back. They NBA Awesome takes up 25% of the car and makes it look like an insert from Sports Illustrated for Kids. Overall, a no. ” -muskie027

“ NBActually, it looks as if the black ink cartridge needed replacing (see shoe on right foot). A great photo but a 1991-92 Skybox replica that doesn't appeal to me. ” -Sportzcommish

“ Such a tiny guy but so EXPLOSIVE! ” -carthage44

“ Allen Iverson always in action. I like this card. ” -76ers2001

“ Apparently I missed the awesome but I can crop it if I should choose to do so. ” -UKboogie

Set: 1983 Riley's Louisville Redbirds (Rate)

Card: #30 Jed Smith

“ I enjoy minor league team logos. Pretty cool front of card. Back of card looks pretty boring. Is bullpen catcher a player or more of a coach position? ” -Mitch

“ Nice card of a bullpen catcher. That's just absolutely AWESOME! How can anyone not like minor league baseball cards? ” -vrooomed

“ This design seems familiar, but it's not bad. I like the team logo. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Not many 14-yr olds with a baseball card. ” -volbox

“ Love Love Love minor league logos! And how often does the bullpen catcher get a card!! ” -rmpaq5

“ Nice 1980s Minor League card. Love the team logo. Back really lacking even for minor league cards from then. ” -captkirk42

“ I love the front for a minor league set, but the back is nothing special. I like stats. ” -muskie027

“ Finally the bullpen catcher gets some card love. ” -dilemma19

“ Cool logo! ” -carthage44

“ Nice redbirds logo, great to put it on the side. Great shot of Jed Half kneeling. ” -TradingCards964

“ Love the logo! Good ole Bullpen Catcher getting a card ” -702tpr777

“ These look like a pretty solid take on the '83 Fleer design. I'd love some stats on the back, probably lacking because he's just the bullpen catcher though. ” -marcbrubaker

Set: 2002 Stadium Club (Rate)

Card: #71 Barry Bonds

“ Nicely designed card. Good photo, no gimmicks. I like it. If this is like the NBA set from the same year they have a coating that feels "slippery" in hand and sticks to other cards badly. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ It might seem a little plain, but I like the design. I don't think I have many (if any at all) of these cards though. ” -jupiterhill

“ Smart and technically flawless defensive player? Unless you are trying to throw out a hobbled Sid Bream from deep shortstop. ” -rmpaq5

“ Roid up! ” -carthage44

“ Topps will forever rule the card market,classy design both front and back. ” -Bs Cards

“ Nice borderless card. Previous season stats broken down into categories is a nice change of pace. I wasn't really familiar with this set before today, but I like what I see. ” -dilemma19

“ Nice card design. NO major complaints about the set. Now about Mr. Bonds, plenty. Never liked his attitude while playing, I think he has mellowed some since. This card is 5 years before the annoying Going for the Record Media Circus in 2007 that I absolutely hated and was very ticked about him doing the breaking against my Nationals. I hated the in game break/celebration the most. ” -captkirk42

“ I slept on this set, but came into a few Astros from it recently. Very nice. Front text is a little small. And as the guys from Effectively Wild would say, "you know why, right?" ” -marcbrubaker

“ Nice looking card. Would have looked a little nicer without the silver rounded edge rectangle around the team logo. I like the photography of Stadium Club, but I never really got into a lot of the stat presentations on the back. ” -muskie027

“ I don't remember this set, and I was collecting in 2002. Looks pretty good. ” -switzr1

“ Though the swing may have been a homer, the card is not. The labels blend into the photo and the Stadium Club logo belies the brand's usual high quality card, which I tend to like. ” -Sportzcommish

“ Topps Stadium club. Giants. Barry Bonds. ” -TradingCards964
