Set: 2007 Pokemon Mysterious Treasures (Rate)

Card: #13 Meganium

“ Once again, think about it....Pokemon universe consists of people with cute pets they train and then have fight each other. Pokemon is a parallel of dog fighting. ” -rmpaq5

“ These cards always seem so complicated. How do kids play them? I wanna add that gaming cards don't belong on a trading card website, just for fun, but I won't. ” -switzr1

“ Oh my heavens. Are you kidding me? This really existed? Was I awake in 2007? Did I completely miss a ton of protests about a child's card game having this kind of imagery? Wow. Unbelievable. Heck, I'm not even sure this image should be in our RCOTD, as opposed to needing restricted access. ” -kents_stuff

“ This looks like something else.... ” -carthage44

“ Well it's about time. I saw Meganium in his rookie year. Never thought he would make it to a card. ” -NJDevils

“ NO! JUST NO! ” -IfbBirdsCards

“ Gotta catch 'em all! ” -jayoneill

“ There must be hidden messages in these. ” -Sportzcommish

“ Pokemon NO. Another one? OK it has been a while since one has popped up but it seems like they appear more often than they really do because of similar types of games that pop up from time to time. ” -captkirk42

“ Confusing. Lets go with that. ” -WallyCub

“ Wow. Really? ” -muskie027

Set: 2006-07 Topps Turkey Red (Rate)

Card: #197 Jorge Garbajosa

“ At first, I thought it was a bearded lady in a red dress. After looking at it longer, I wish I had been right. ” -switzr1

“ Seriously, looks like a loser ready for gym class. Turkey Red just doesn't work for me unless the photo/subject looks like it could fit in the late 19th, early 20th century time frame. ” -rmpaq5

“ Every time a Turkey Red comes up, I seem not to like it. This one is no different. ” -muskie027

“ This reminds me of how lots of athletes subscribe to the idea that they must have an intimidating look to be respected. ” -Sportzcommish

“ I got this card in which I thought for many years would be my last pack of basketball cards ever. Now that I am back in the NBA, I consider leaving one of the biggest mistakes I've ever made in my life. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I don't think Jorge lasted very long in the NBA, LOL! ” -carthage44

“ Worst. RCOTD. Ever. ” -mbarlow092

“ He looks like he just got out of bed. I need me some of them pajamas. ” -RoyalChief

“ Did the NBA stop giving Topps a license after they saw this set? ” -UKboogie

“ He was a good role player for the Raptors. It's a shame he had injury problems. ” -DanD

“ Picture taken at local elementary school. ” -cjjt

“ I usually like the retro looks, but this one is not doing it for me. Maybe it is a basketball card. ” -kirkscards

“ The yellow tint of the background, makes this card look like a portal to a nightmare dimension. ” -Doe MG

“ Yes, this is awful. ” -NJDevils

“ Didn't know they had a Basketball Turkey Red. Still like it but somehow modern basketball with retro Turkey Red design doesn't quite do it for me. At least not this card. ” -captkirk42

“ The border's a bit too wide, and the background is a bit too high school. ” -kents_stuff

“ Turkey Red Basketball! I can't wait for the T-206 Nascar. ” -jayoneill

“ Absolutely love this set! Working on the baseball set, undecided on the football one..... ” -Joshua825

Set: 2009 Bowman Draft Picks & Prospects - Chrome Prospects (Rate)

Card: #BDPP45 Mycal Jones

“ I can't tell if that's a real autograph or not. I don't think so, it doesn't have the AU note. Fake autographs on cards are never a good thing. The scan is pretty good for a chrome card. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I like it. Not sure why. But kinda cool. ” -cjjt

“ " You know I have a great Idea! Let's use basically the same design for all our sets, and give them insane numbering systems, with both paper and chrome versions. Oh and at least 10 parallels per set! Make sure most of the players we feature never make it our of the Instructional Leagues too!" said Nobody Ever! I hate Bowman.... ” -rmpaq5

“ Looks so much like an auto card but they fool you. ” -carthage44

“ Dislike the "number" which again, is mainly letters. I have sold off most of the few Bowmans I had for this reason. ” -NJDevils

“ Modern Bowman Chrome le sigh. Braves another le sigh. A Draft Picks and Prospects card with a BCPP card number le sigh. Bowman Chrome Pick and Prospect yeah sure easy enough once you can remember that Picks is one of the Prospect "P"s. Le Sigh. BTW I don't recall hearing of this guy (quick Google search) hmm looks like he is still in their Minor system hasn't hit the biggy Mamma team yet. ” -captkirk42

“ I was never a fan of the fake signature effect on cards when they were clearly separated from the rest of the picture. He's a player that grinded it out in the minors for six seasons, going all the way up to AAA-ball, but could never make The Show. He runs a baseball camp in Naples, FL now. ” -NSEndo

“ Chrome cards, I notice, aren’t the best for autographs. ” -IfbBirdsCards

“ If the number is #BDPP45, then I guess on a scale from 1-10 I give this a 9.1485log(3.52), which is really just an overcomplicated way to say "meh". ” -kents_stuff

“ Bowman chrome looks better in hand than scanned, but I don't like this particular set, because of the big box with the fake signature. ” -switzr1

“ Many mainstream sport sets contain dozens of parallel series and insert sets. To make a master set, it is not exceedingly difficult to build. I remember the old days in the 1970's where sets had subsets as part of the main set, and USUALLY an equal chance to pull a given card. Today, those subsets are hard-to-build subsets and they can get very expensive. Vintage Series had like 600 to almost 800 in the main set. Many base sets are much shorter, but consists of dozens of insert sets - very difficult to figure out. I say we intengrate those subsets back into the main set and make it easier to build... ” -danderson2036C

Set: 2013 Panini Road to 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil Stickers (Rate)

Card: #166 Mauricio Isla

“ Fairly decent card from Panini - and amazingly there's not a cropped front picture on the back! I thought that was a Panini staple. ” -Sportzcommish

“ Just when you thought soccer was gone, it’s back. At least it’s not a game. ” -IfbBirdsCards

“ Still can't believe USA will not be in the 2018 World Cup. SAD! ” -carthage44

“ Not bad for a soccer card . ” -uncaian

“ A soccer card that isn't a CCG/TCG because it is actually a sticker. Odd that the dob, height and weight are on the front. Since this is a "road to" World Cup sticker the country flag in the right corner I guess doubles as the "team". ” -captkirk42

“ Cool. It's soccer and nobody can complain that it's a card game! A good Chilean here; always a strong team, might win the next World Cup. Of course, the next World Cup set won't feature any Americans... ” -switzr1

“ Looks like it came in a bag of bread. ” -NJDevils

“ Nothing better than soccer stickers! Is the little silhouette supposed to indicate his position? Unfortunately I'm not very familiar with Mr. Isla... ” -dilemma19

Set: 1960 Topps (Rate)

Card: #39 Doyle Nix

“ The 1959 set is my favorite Topps football set, but the 1960 cards are dull as heck. Same for the 1959 and 1960 baseball sets, come to think of it. I wonder if they had a hotshot designer in 1959 who left, and then some dullard took over, or the company wanted less flash that year, or what. As a bonus, i suppose all the first-year Cowboys players are wearing the uniforms of different teams, that's always gross. ” -revnorb

“ Love the vintage cards! ” -olerud363

“ One of my favorite sets. You won't hear the term "Ace" used on a card back anymore ” -SFC Temple

“ More vintage football! Great picture here. Former Washington player too. ” -IfbBirdsCards

“ I don't know how long he played for Dallas, but he was on the team for their inaugural season. He's been on my Want List for some time. ” -Sportzcommish

“ Nice vintage card. ” -cjjt

“ Great 60's football player name. ” -carthage44

“ I remember these well. As a kid, the fun part was scratching off the cartoon. When these came out, football was not on TV too often, neither was baseball, so you really didn't know the players that well. ” -NJDevils

“ Intimidating upward-angle photograph! ” -dilemma19

“ Cool vintage football. I loved the scratch off cartoons/quizes from the 60s cards. I actually with they were manufactured in a better way or they didn't bother with the "scratch-off" concept. It was a fun kid thing, but as a collector it is frustrating when you can't see what the dang thing is. I love the 1960 set. I have all the marked Redskins from the set, oddly I don't have this card A Redskin who was drafted to the expansion Rangers/Cowboys. A few months back I had gotten a Cowboy who was a Brown and Drafted to the Cowboys but like Mr. Nix here never actually played a game for them. IN the 60s this kind of card was quite common for a player to be shown in one uniform and the card showing him on his "new" team. They hadn't yet started the airbrushing thing which lead to the photoshop thing ” -captkirk42

“ That's a man's haircut right there. Way to go...erm...Doyle. ” -mkaz80

“ I never knew that the Cowboys wore red ” -rmitchell6700

“ I'm colorblind, but I feel like this isn't a Cowboys uniform. Cool card though. ” -switzr1

“ I know that's not a Cowboys uniform, but until I turned the card over and saw that it was Washington. I wouldn't have known who it was. There's just something weird about seeing cards of players in uniform with no identifying marks. Also really cool to see that he was an old-school "ironman" playing both sides of the ball! ” -jasongerman9

“ That look when you cant remember if you turned the propane off the grill. ” -parsley24

Set: 2006-07 Ultra - Target Exclusive Rookies (Rate)

Card: #236 James Augustine

“ Why are "WORLD" and "PREMIERE" in different fonts? Then again, Fleer was the company who put a backwards state of Wisconsin on all their Packers cards one year, so ya can't really expect much. ” -revnorb

“ The blue foil lets you know this is a Target exclusive. Not a fan of college uniforms appearing in NBA sets. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ If you’re gonna make a card, make it available to everyone. ” -IfbBirdsCards

“ Oh yeah, when U of I basketball was actually something. ” -carthage44

“ First time I've seen an Illini card as RCOTD, so A+ for the most local team to get featured. I like a good dunk photo. I really like this card, and can't wait to go to an Illini game soon! Also, a girl I knew back then told me she saw Augustine at the mall and he asked her out, and she said no. I didn't believe any of her story. ” -switzr1

“ Nice looking card hard to read his name. Must be foil lettering again. Not liking the back. Exclusive Rookies how "Exclusive" was Exclusive? ” -captkirk42

“ This reminds me that basketball season is about to start. Unfortunately I don't like basketball. ” -cnangle

“ Sweet, a World Premiere card, back from his days at Illinois. I mean, wait, is it World Premiere? I am thinking something like a Metta World Peace? Ooooh, wait, now I see it, a James Augustine card. This is my long winded way to say that the ridiculous branding stripe was too large and ruined a potentially really great card. ” -muskie027

Set: 1996 Flair - Diamond Cuts (Rate)

Card: #5 Ken Griffey Jr.

“ Flair was around after I stopped collecting. This looks ok now, but I'll bet I would have liked it back then. I had a phase where I loved the computer backgrounds. Not so much now. ” -muskie027

“ One of my favorite overall years for cards, but I don't remember his set. And I'm not crazy about it. ” -switzr1

“ Nothing special about this card ” -kirkscards

“ Bland and lacks brilliance; it doesn't cut it for me. ” -Sportzcommish

“ Hmm, I've somehow never come across one of these in all my years of dime box digging. Anyhow, seems like one of those cards that's a real gem in person. ” -mkaz80

“ Griffey = Stud ” -carthage44

“ Being of the cardboard generation , I have never been a big fan of these flashy cards and Flair is one the flashiest. ” -uncaian

“ Nice insert card. Not much to look at. Probably better looking in hand than scanned. I noticed for a few of my Player collections I would probably need 3 or 4 of the cards from this set. At that rate it is almost worth going for the set. Maybe, but not too keen on it. ” -captkirk42

“ Exciting player; not a very exciting card. ” -cnangle

“ What a nice card! ” -nubala

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

Card: #357 Sarunas Marciulionis

“ The lowest draft pick in the basketball Hall of Fame, a 7th rounder. First player to break the iron curtain and play in the NBA. When I first discovered the sport, I had the hardest time learning the proper spelling of his name than anyone in the league. Still involved with basketball in his native country last I knew, which was a few years ago now. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Those crazy French. ” -carthage44

“ Who's the guy with the big arm grabbing Sarunas? ” -cnangle

“ Love this Collector’s Choice design, even if I don’t collect basketball. ” -IfbBirdsCards

“ Ah Collector's Not Quite Choice. I like the fronts with the cartoon position guy in the corner. The white font for the name and team name is often washed out and hard to read. Needs contrast an outline or to be in a box. Back picture way too big, don't need photos on the back really. Only one year of stats. UGH. ” -captkirk42

“ The Sonics should never have left Seattle. Maybe someday the northwest will get another pro sports team besides the Seahawks. ” -rmitchell6700

“ Looks like the Sonic is tripping over the type at the bottom of the card and the Laker has an artificial leg made out of a tiny basketball player. ” -revnorb

“ Fire the editor! ” -Sportzcommish

“ Overall, I think these looked ok. I would have preferred a lager name and maybe a logo. Also, I would have liked a smaller Collector Choice branding. ” -muskie027

“ Nice, and most importantly DIFFERENT, action photos on both the front and back. ” -rmpaq5

“ The big hand photo bomb is actually a bit unnerving. Sometimes I wonder how these photos were selected. Surely a better one existed. ” -Brimose

Set: 2012 Topps Archives (Rate)

Card: #114 Jason Motte

“ Not a fan of archives, but love the 72 design. ” -muskie027

“ He looks like somebody just ran over his cat in the parking lot. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ A nice remake since at first glance I thought it was an original. ” -carthage44

“ Smile for the camera Jason, come on!! ” -rmitchell6700

“ Love the Cardinal entry. Motte was a catcher turned pitcher that had a couple of good seasons including an all star selection, until hitters started figuring him out. Now he's best known for his cancer foundation, which is also a good thing to be known for ” -Brimose

“ Little too much white border but a good looking card! ” -WallyCub

“ I remember the first time getting a pack of one of these, I though it was gonna be repackaged Topps cards from earlier years. Disappointed to see that they were new cards. I am a fan though. ” -IfbBirdsCards

“ Archives could and should be a better product. The '17 edition took a big step forward in a lot of ways, so there's still hope. It's still overpriced, but what isn't? ” -mkaz80

“ Like Topps Archives but really wish they wouldn't have so many designs per year and so many repeat years. This particular color design for that year is good for the Cardinals. Not all the teams had good matches either in the archives or in the original 1980 set. ” -captkirk42

“ Beautiful retro card. This reminds me that the Cardinals have the best baseball uniforms. ” -Sportzcommish

“ This is a card I actually have. That's rare for me with the RCOTD. I like it. Motte recorded the final out of the 2011 World Series, and will always be a favorite among Cardinals fans. He also did a ton of charity work in STL. And Archives is my favorite baseball set. ” -switzr1

Set: 1962-63 Shirriff Coins (Rate)

Card: #27 Marcel Bonin

“ Awesome! ” -muskie027

“ Neat! However, coin is a misnomer. To be a coin it has to be currency. A metal disk that's not monetary is a medal, though I'm not sure if these are actually metal or not. Paper or plastic, it's just a round card then. I'm OCD about proper names. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Classic hockey now too. Would have preferred acard over a coin but beggars can’t be choosers. ” -IfbBirdsCards

“ If it's not a card, I'll pass. ” -carthage44

“ Wow a vintage 1960s HOCKEY coin. I'm used to the baseball coins. ” -captkirk42

“ Another great item! ” -NJDevils

“ Vintage...cool. Canadiens jersey...cool. Coins....not cool. ” -cnangle

“ I have some of these so hard to find in "nice" condition .Cool vintage. Marcel won the cup 4 times with the Red Wings (1) & 3 with the Habs . ” -uncaian

“ Were these inserted into packs of trading cards or do they not belong on the TCDB? :) ” -UKboogie
