Set: 1993 Classic Deathwatch 2000 (Rate)

Card: #45 True Form

“ How nice of Classic to knock off the design of the Impel DC Comics set designs. I think there's a reason no comics have been produced from this line in many years, and in my five years on the Comic Book Collecting Facebook group with 94k members I've seen the title mentioned exactly three times. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I wonder if she's recognizable after 17 years, or does Death not age? ” -Sportzcommish

“ I haven't commented on a RCOTD for a little while, and was hoping some vintage baseball would pop up. Instead, it's the "Demon She-Bat". I wish her luck in the final battle! ” -dilemma19

“ Nice Non-Vintage but totally bizarre. ” -captkirk42

“ Classic was all in during the early 90's in collectible cards. ” -carthage44

“ What the heck is this??? ” -TradingCards964

“ At first glance I thought this card said "Iroc Porn". ” -olerud363

“ Neat card. I believe my son left these somewhere here in the house. ” -NJDevils

“ I've never been a fan of Classic and this card is no exception. I can't really put my finger on why but all their products look "b" grade to me. ” -cnangle

“ This is why I hate Classic ” -JoshReese92099

“ Man bat plus spandex ” -Bargunmaster

Set: 2012 Score - End Zone (Rate)

Card: #42 Harry Douglas

“ SN6! That's an odd number to SN to, at least it seems to me. Maybe if I knew the rules of football I would understand it's significance. It's cool, either way, and I think it may be the lowest SN to come up as Card of the Day...I don't really remember for sure though. Great rare card. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ My first impression is of a high school yearbook entry. The design is appealing apparently with team colors and the helmet positioned perfectly within the lower banner. However, the photo, although high quality in some aspects, is not what I'd expect from a professional action shot for a trading card. ” -Sportzcommish

“ Is this the lowest serial numbered card ever to be posted on Card of the Day? ” -carthage44

“ OK for a Score sup-set thingy. Panini really needs to up their game though since they have the exclusive for NFL cards. ” -captkirk42

“ nice look ” -Bargunmaster

“ At first I thought this was a Cleveland Browns card, then I saw Harry Douglas and realized it was a Falcons throwback uni. Looks like an insert serial number 5/6? If so, it is an odd card for a serial insert. Usually things as rare as a /6 card have a better look. Very mediocre card. Maybe it looks better in hand? ” -muskie027

Set: 1992-93 Fleer Drake's (Rate)

Card: #16 Joe Dumars

“ One of my all-time favorite set designs, and one of the first promo sets to enter my NBA collection. Can't beat that. Scan's a little washed out though. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I remember basketball.... whatever happened to it? ” -SFC Temple

“ I don't normally like side banners, but I checked the set out because there was a strange appeal to me. Maybe since the banners aren't parallel or because they are paired that it works for me. Whatever, I have now placed the Olajuwon, O'Neal, Robinson, Drexler, and Worthy cards on my Want List. ” -Sportzcommish

“ What makes this card a Fleer Drake's version? Looks like the base version. ” -carthage44

“ When I first saw these I hated them just because they were 1990s Basketball. I actually like time for the most part now. Not sure but I think I have all my bullets from this set. Maybe maybe not. ” -captkirk42

“ Almost too complicated ” -Bargunmaster

“ Joey D. Awesome player!! ” -cjjt

“ Extremely nice card, especially for a Drake's issue. Isn't this the same design for the base Fleer set? What makes this a "Drake's" card. I don't see a Drake's logo anywhere. ” -muskie027

“ I believe I still have some of these under the mountain of boxes here. It's good to be the RCOTD. The boys and I ate a lot of these cakes. ” -NJDevils

“ I like the fleer sets from this year. Clear set and team markings placed well on the bottom. The player name could be better done, but its not bad. The stats on back are a little small for my taste. There is space available that they could have used. But overall its a great card. ” -cnangle

“ The original bad boys, enough said. ” -UKboogie

Set: 1995-96 Leaf (Rate)

Card: #286 Neal Broten

“ Really like this set...really kicking myself for not getting into hockey sooner. 1995-96 season was when my school had floor hockey, and I loved it. The only sport I was actually good at playing...but my eyesight is so bad that trying to watch hockey on TV didn't work for me, because I couldn't follow what was going on. It wasn't until the perfect storm of getting a smart phone and my TV dying, which led to me watching TV on the phone, that allowed me to finally get into the NHL. That happened in November, and now it's something that's a part of every day of my life. Instead of being in my first season I could have been in my 21st...add another regret to the pile. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Side banners have a magnetic attraction to my eyes; and it's bothersome. Other than that this would be an excellent card series to collect. I don't follow hockey, but I assume the circled "C" is the player's position - I like that touch. ” -Sportzcommish

“ Rotten Broten. Gotta love a tough guy ” -mbarlow092

“ Had to be 1990s hard to read player name. Wow no foil on this one. Back with just one year or stats looks more like a CCG card than a regular trading card. ” -captkirk42

“ Great player , one of the best American born players ever. ” -uncaian

“ Not a whole lot going on here. ” -carthage44

“ "Do you believe in miracles? Yes!" ” -Slug03

“ Looks like the front and back pictures were taken in the same game, a few seconds apart. ” -olerud363

“ Nice Card! ” -kirkscards

“ Miracle on Ice member. 1980 US Hockey -- greatest sports event in my life. Nothing comes close. ” -cjjt

“ Solid enough card. Broten was a real good player. Never collected a Leaf hockey set, but this would have been a good one. What do these companies have about listing full year by year stats. That will always be points off. ” -muskie027

Set: 2012 Panini Triple Play (Rate)

Card: #61 Chase Utley

“ I feel bad for the tree that gave it's life for this card to exist. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Cool stuff I never had. ” -dah15

“ Panini doesn't have a baseball license but they make cards anyway? Why does anyone buy them? I collect basketball and it makes me sad that Panini has the license but I'm trying to stop buying their cards because 90% of them are crap. Panini is a purveyor of crap on their best day. ” -UKboogie

“ I own the 2013 Jose Altuve of this style from Panini Triple Play, but only because it's Altuve, not because I like these card designs. ” -Sportzcommish

“ I have a feeling this is going to get slammed, but remember this was an inexpensive set specifically designed for kids. ” -rmpaq5

“ No. No logo. No team name. No photo. More often than not, no stats. No. I hope Panini planted a forest somewhere to recompense for wasting so much paper on these Triple Plays. No. ” -Doe MG

“ As Charles Barkley would say, "Turibule"! ” -carthage44

“ It's nice. I like it. ” -kirkscards

“ If this is the direction Panini is taking the hobby it is in serious trouble.. ” -bigdawg315

“ Yuck! One of my all-time least favorite card sets. ” -cckeith

“ Not really a fan of the art, no design of the uniform. ” -TradingCards964

“ I think what I hate most about these cards is that they used the Triple Play name. I loved those 90s sets. ” -jupiterhill

“ Triple Play is the worst. When cases come as cheap as $10, there is a reason. There are no redeeming qualities to this set. ” -ketchupman36

“ Simple....but I love it! ” -tbshaw

“ Oh boy the modern Triple Play Japanese cartoon cards. When I first saw these I really really hated them. The artwork is simple cartoonish. Oh and they have about 3 different cards for each player one of which has a puzzle back on it. At first I never wanted to have any of these, but with some trades and card gifts of my Homie teams I have gotten a few of these. Plus some of the repacks and boxes with random packs of cards with repacks include these sometimes so I couldn't avoid them. Not too thrilled about them but I think I will still keep and collect my Homie Nats and O's maybe some PC guys as well but not nearly the entire set. ” -captkirk42

“ I actually hate everything about this. Wow, if you were going to design a worse card of all time, this is it. I am amazed how bad this is. ” -muskie027

“ He looks about as filled in as his batting average has been the past few season. Not really a fan of unlicensed cards. ” -sahal694

Set: 1984 Donruss Action All-Stars (Rate)

Card: #20 Cal Ripken Jr.

“ I always like seeing cards from 1984. Is this an oversized card? If not, that text is way too small, I can't read it. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I've come to like these oversized cards. I think they may be best for autographs. I have couple of sets of the mid-80s Donruss I think they're pretty cool. ” -joshthurman

“ Not a lot of action going on here. Clean design. ” -cjjt

“ Legend! I have a "smattering" of '84 Donruss somewhere, but I don't believe this card! Love it and the set though! ” -bkklaos

“ Baseball's Iron Man , don't have this one ,I will have to find it . Not a bad looking card. ” -uncaian

“ I dislike the larger cards, Hard to store and very difficult to ship. ” -carthage44

“ My all time favorite baseball player! And one of the many cards I don't have yet lol ” -Joshua825

“ Pretty tame for an 80's Donruss card... But anything Cal is always pretty cool! ” -tbshaw

“ The Iron Man. His streak may have started in '82, but on the back of this card is Cal's first year of "G 162". There were many more of those to follow. Oh yeah! ” -CollectingAfterDeath

“ Cal Ripken.... A guy that I sent a TTM to and haven't received yet. ” -TradingCards964

“ Cool card of Cal. Dont like the oversized cards now, mostly because of the storing difficulties. ” -captkirk42

Card: #PA02-LO009 Sung-Min Hong

“ Wow! Racecar drivers double as baseball players in Japan? ” -Sportzcommish

“ Wow, these game cards must be popular. ” -carthage44

“ Odd looking gaming card (CCG, TCG) ” -captkirk42

“ Not a fan of the coloring looks too bright. ” -TradingCards964

“ No thank you. ” -jayoneill

Set: 1999 Upper Deck Retro (Rate)

Card: #125 Troy Edwards

“ Why does football have such a high preponderance of digitally created backdrops? ” -Billy Kingsley

“ The sky is extra clear and blue in Pittsburgh today... ” -rmpaq5

“ Love it. Very nice Retro look honors late 60s Topps designs without actually using them. Back is excellent although stats should be full not limited. love the retro cartoon logo. ” -captkirk42

“ One of the weaker retro sets in my opinion. ” -carthage44

“ Never liked the Steelers logo which came from U.S. Steel. I like the factory logo which is on some team cards in the 50s. ” -NJDevils

“ Front so-so. Back--I like. Lots of info. ” -cjjt

“ I like the retro look, but prefer less white space. ” -Sportzcommish

“ Very simple and very much a failure. The card doesn't do anything for me. ” -muskie027

Set: 2016 Panini Absolute (Rate)

Card: #4 Blake Bortles

“ These cards are a tough scan but they have a nice shine in person ” -ketchupman36

“ Meh. At least the scan is great. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ absolute rubbish, I personally hate cards with generated backgrounds ” -aussiewayne

“ I hate that Panini has bought out the NFL licence and now they produce garbage like this because they do not have any competition. ” -carthage44

“ This is a pretty nice set. Now that Panini has exclusive to the NFL unfortunately all their sets have the same back looks and they seem to be limiting the stats to just the previous season. Other than that I am OK with this set. I have opened quite a few packs of this for the Football team Traders group I'm a part of. ” -captkirk42

“ Good photo on the front. I love the new Jags uniforms! A little too much going on on the front in my opinion though. ” -JoshReese92099

“ "Hi. I'm Blake Bortles. I don't play football, I just pose in front of a green screen - and only long enough for one shot so you'll need to use it on both the front and back." ” -dilemma19

“ Looks like Bortles is running away from a floating jaguar head. I've never been a fan of this type of "floating picture" design. ” -olerud363

“ Yesterday I praised the RCOTD's uniform (Winnipeg Jets), today...not so much. ” -rmpaq5

“ 2004 Leaf Rookies & Stars Longevity? No, just another crap Panini set. ” -cjjt

“ Insert would be cool, but base set no. ” -muskie027

Set: 1995-96 SkyBox Impact (Rate)

Card: #227 Deron Quint

“ Never heard this guy's name, he's one all American. ” -dah15

“ The Quint-essential hockey set to own? The card has more positives than negatives. The good: A full-size photo showing the player ready to react and the Skybox logo is visible and out of the way. The bad: The side banner's mixture of color and transparent lettering and the lack of a bottom banner for the "Rookie" overlay. ” -Sportzcommish

“ Foil waste on left side. I'm pretty sure in person these are fairly easy to read, this scan however very difficult as foil doesn't scan well. At least they had a license to show logos otherwise there would be no way of knowing which team this rookie was on. Back very very plain but at least you can read his name and see that he is on the Winnipeg Jets. ” -captkirk42

“ Love the old Jets logo. ” -rmpaq5

“ The back of the card is weak. ” -carthage44

“ Typical 90s design, foil makes it hard to read ” -mbarlow092

“ Nice card. Hopefully someday I'll add a copy to my collection. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Quint's career has lasted longer than this product , thankfully. Shane Doan & him are the last active players from the "original Jets." ” -uncaian

“ I never knew Skybox did hockey. Not bad. I would have like these. ” -muskie027

“ Very weird card ” -Bargunmaster
