Set: 1999-00 Pacific Crown Royale (Rate)

Card: #45 Jere Lehtinen

“ Gotta love Pacific and their die cut crown cards...it may not have been their flagship set, but it is their iconic set! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I've always been a fan of these Crown Royale cards...which were actually cut in the shape of a crown. Very cool, unlike today's 'die cuts' which come in any number of abstract shapes for no particular reason. ” -mkaz80

“ I like the "die cuts" Pacific put out , so easy to damage though. Great hockey player . ” -uncaian

“ Did not like that the die cut was the base card. ” -carthage44

“ ACK! the Crown Royale Die-Cut Crown cards. ["Men on" impersonation]Hate it! [/"Men on" impersonation] ” -captkirk42

“ Crown Royale always put out some interesting cads, but they are a pain to scan straight ” -mbarlow092

“ Cool player, cool set, cool card! ” -wax_house

“ Last non-center to win the Selke Trophy as the league's best defensive forward! ” -Howintensive

“ The font on this card is unjerable...Bere, Dere, uh quick look on the back...on Jere, I should have known, that's no one I know's name... ” -SaveDaKid

“ I used to love these cards but as time has gone on, I don't think they were much more than a pretty-looking gimmick. Still, I love die-cut cards. ” -nubala

“ I can't believe these were once considered high-end cards. ” -DanD

“ Don't like it. Actually, looks like he plays for the Kings. ” -muskie027

Set: 1972-73 O-Pee-Chee - Team Logos (Rate)

Card: #NNO Vancouver Canucks

“ This logo is awesome! ” -carthage44

“ Not a bad sticker for an album. Was this a card in the set or on a box? Is it a sticker? Were these inserts? These pre-date me and I don't know much about this set. Hockey is funny in that I feel like everyone thinks every team should wear the jerseys and use the uniforms from when they started watching. There is something special about the teams and logos from when you first enter following it. That being said, I love the Canucks black and yellow/orange logos and uniforms from the 80's/90's! ” -muskie027

“ No comment ” -Quinn820

“ Maybe some people like this 'classic' logo, but it doesn't do a thing for me. Looks more like a street sign. ” -mkaz80

“ I love team logo cards. I love all team cards but team logo cards are perhaps my favorite. This one appears to be a sticker. No matter, I want them for my collection. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I wonder what a scratch and sniff hockey sticker would smell like. ” -DanD

“ Not much of a hockey man, but this is pretty cool. Almost looks like a whale head or something. ” -RoyalChief

“ Wow, an "In Action" shot. ” -cjjt

“ Love it....why not. Old school.....simple....and cannot offend anyone. ” -tbshaw

“ Simple, but cool! ” -bkklaos

“ The ultra-minimalist Canucks logo.. ” -Mike67

“ Cool Hockey team logo sticker. Oh and it's OPC too. Extra Cool. ” -captkirk42

Set: 2012 Topps Gypsy Queen (Rate)

Card: #173 David Ortiz

“ Never liked the name of these cards or how they looked. ” -carthage44

“ The A-Rod of the Red Sox - in more ways than one. ” -DarkSide830

“ I'm puzzled by the placement of the umpire in this picture. ” -mkaz80

“ I love Gypsy Queen and this card is a perfect example of who. The color scheme is beautiful, the shot of Ortiz is timeless and the borders serve to enhance, and not detract, from the card. ” -nubala

“ These are growing on me, it's just they are so stupid expensive. Because of that though I am able to buy them a year later when they are in the bargain bins at Wal-Mart and Casey's. ” -RoyalChief

“ Nice GQ only problem I have with GQ now is every year looks like every other year. When Topps first brought back the old Gypsy Queen Tobacco Brand in 2008 or whenever I hated it thought it was too bland and dark. The next year or two I started to like it. Now I just sort of tolerate it because I still kind of like it, but am tired of all the different retro sets Topps puts out. ” -captkirk42

“ Always liked gypsy queen. ” -kirkscards

Set: 1997 Grandstand Amarillo Dillas (Rate)

Card: #NNO Ryan A. Thomas

“ Not a bad looking card for an MiLB card. It's not great but also not bad. Both sides are simple and to the point. Grandstand has been my favorite MiLB card manufacturer for a long time. I only go after cards of local teams and leagues when I'm at their games, but Grandstand always produces quality cards for a good price. ” -spazmatastic

“ Front isn't bad, but I hate the lowercase team name on the back. Not bad for a minor league card. ” -muskie027

“ I remember scanning this minor league set. ” -UKboogie

“ Pretty typical minor league card. I like the uniform combo. Is the nickname short for 'quesadillas' or what? That would be impressive! ” -mkaz80

“ Pretty nice front, interesting use of fonts on the back. I like. ” -rmpaq5

“ From the United League Baseball which played from 1994-2010. I could not find any future major leagers that played on the Amarillo Dillas. ” -carthage44

“ I like the front. I wonder if team and player names are coordinated with the team colors, or if this card was just a lucky example. Back is passable for a minor league issue, but I would have expected better in 1997. Fantastic team name! I'd love to own a hat, but that logo needs a rebuild... ” -dilemma19

“ Nice minor league card. I bet that team name can be a real tongue twister after a long night. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Nice basic Minor League card. Looks like he was drafted by the Padres in 1996 but never made the Majors only played 96-97 in Minor League. :( ” -captkirk42

“ I like the simplicity. The color scheme on the right side and bottom reminds me of the 90s perfectly. ” -nubala

“ More like a collection of ugliest fonts plus the photo than a card. ” -Thomas_Kava

Set: 2008-09 Upper Deck MVP (Rate)

Card: #196 Henrik Lundqvist

“ The fake autograph has no place on this card. Just a waste. ” -carthage44

“ The MVP product always seemed to be a pretty solid product, especially for the price point. From what I see from this card, this is a typical MVP set. Nice photography, full stats, write-up, and a front design that is not over-bearing. A little bit of wasted space on the reverse, but I'm sure it wouldn't be for players who have been around the league for much longer. This is a set that would be nice to have. ” -vrooomed

“ This is my favorite card of the day in a long time...Since I got into the NHL in just this past November he has become my favorite player on my favorite team. And it's all because of the Database that I've now gotten into the sport...since then the NHL has been a big part of every day of my life, and I think it always will be! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ An OK card. Even for an Upper Deck MVP card. I think the thing that bugs me the most about MVP cards is the sliver facsimile signature (or the gold one for the "gold" parallels) those type of sigs are OK and tolerable when they are plain black and fine lines but thick lines or silver/gold sigs are awful. The back is OK. ” -captkirk42

“ Nice card overall. All required elements are there, but maybe not in proper proportions relative to one another (MVP logo bigger than player name on front?!). Could have squeezed a maskless headshot on the back. King Henrik was already showing his dominance over less than 3 seasons. ” -dilemma19

Set: 1997-98 Donruss Priority (Rate)

Card: #183 Alexei Morozov

“ Very cluttered, no real structure. ” -carthage44

“ Got injured just as he was starting to find his game in North America. Love the robopen jersey! ” -wax_house

“ Too busy. What am I looking at? Priority? Priority for what exactly? Back is OK. For vets their full career stats look a bit nicer than the Rookie blurb. The "Priority" labels/stamps just get in the way and make things real ugly. ” -captkirk42

“ other than being a rookie card i like this card because of all the small details and the litle blonde girl in the corner her face is priceless ” -Starblazer

“ Odd photo. Blurry stick across the front and two players tangled up. Morozov doesn't really stand out enough. ” -olerud363

“ Another player who I went from having about a dozen cards of to now having none. ” -DanD

“ Cool Card ” -RexRusher23

“ "Priority"??? ” -cjjt

“ I never knew Donruss made hockey. This was during my out of the hobby years. This could have been way better. It was so close to being a good card though, just too much going on. ” -muskie027

Set: 2008 Upper Deck Documentary (Rate)

Card: #831 Barry Zito

“ I guess since it is a set called documentary, my joke about it looking like a documentary instead of a card isn't as funny as it is obvious. Given that its intent is to be informative, I guess it works. Not sure I like the concept, but if that is what you are going for, it actually is a nice card. ” -muskie027

“ Ah, the Topps Now precursor. I like it. ” -Doe MG

“ a bit bland on the front ” -Starblazer

“ Nice looking card from a very silly set or more accurately a set that would be a set collector's nightmare. Way way way too large a set to chase. Each team has at least 163 cards in the set one for each game plus a season summary card so that gives you a general idea of how big the set is. The grand total is 4,954 cards in the set. Not to mention the "Gold" parallel set and 3 insert sets All-Star game 55 cards, Home Run Derby 5 cards and Seasonal Signatures 60 cards. So yeah Set Collector's gonna hate. Whenever they repeat a player in the set they use the same photo on the front just change the game the card is talking about. Upper Deck was probably trying to out do Topps Total but I think they failed. Come to think about it maybe they set the stage for the Topps Now physical sets. ” -captkirk42

“ This set is way to big for a collector to collect the whole thing. Even if you're a team collector it is hard to collect just your team's set. ” -TheToddFather21

“ Ugh! This set was such a terrible idea. Ambitious, but terrible. ” -cckeith

Set: 1993 Action Packed ASG (Rate)

Card: #121 Don Drysdale

“ I love Action Packed. If they had stayed around as a company longer they probably would have been my favorite. I'm not sure the red border on the front is actually on the card. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ This card did this the same year as he died. ” -dah15

“ I've always associated Action Packed with football. Didn't know they were into baseball, but in the early 90's who didn't produce baseball cards? ” -olerud363

“ These cards felt very bubbly. ” -carthage44

“ *Sigh* Action Packed. I am not a fan of thee. All Foil fronts and both sides of the card printed on the same side of the cardboard and then folded over. The back of the card information is actually very nice it is the fronts I tend not to like. ” -captkirk42

“ I like these Action Packed cards. Puffy cards are good. :) ” -Doe MG

“ I really like Action Packed. Love the stars of yesteryear. ” -cjjt

“ I really like this set. Hope to complete it someday. ” -jayoneill

“ The rounded corners and raised lettering on Action Packed cards made me think of credit cards when I'd get these as a kid. They were fun back then, but I don't think they've aged well. ” -DanD

“ don't collect baseball, but always loved Action Packed! ” -Thunderfoot

“ Not too bad. Action Packed definitely brought something new and innovative. Years later, I am still not quite sure if I like it or not. When they came out they were so cool and different. I honestly never knew they made baseball. ” -muskie027

Set: 1996 Upper Deck Road to the Cup (Rate)

Card: #RC135 Johnny Benson

“ Wow, I really don't like this. Such a boring card. I actually didn't know what it was or what sport until I read it, then I was able to see the racer uniform in the back. It would have been better had there been a racing shot, or even a post race shot. ” -muskie027

“ This card had potential but something is off about it. I would prefer Benson at the award ceremony to have a more center image instead of off to the right side. ” -nubala

“ Love Benson but this card is just plain ugly ” -mbarlow092

“ Nice bow tie! ” -carthage44

“ "..and the Oscar goes to..." Oh wait this is a racing card. WHERE'S THE CAR? That is what Clara Peller wants to know. Actually Mr. Benson here looks more like he is going to conduct an orchestra or make a commencement speech. ” -captkirk42

Set: 1994 Classic Four Sport (Rate)

Card: #187 Jacob Shumate

“ An ok look, but somewhat boring. ” -muskie027

“ ...at least the scan is good. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I'm not a big fan of the Classic Four Sport sets and I'm too keen on very plain full "bleed" fronts, but I do kind of dig the beveled look as a kind of border. Also not a huge fan of products featuring High School kids. Not even big on the College issues, except when it is several years later and the College guys are now known pros. The Back is actually a little better than the front. ” -captkirk42

“ Kinda neat, but the design of the set is pretty lame. ” -DarkSide830

“ Kinda of liked the Four Sport cards as it gave you a little something from all four major sports (Baseball, Football, Basketball and Hockey). ” -carthage44

“ The card looks fine enough, but I really hate the 4-sport/multi-sport sets. Especially here when searching the database. Baseball is baseball, basketball is basketball etc... but if one wants to find every card for a team or a player, one must search all categories (which isn't an option to do all at once). And don't get me started on the entire Moody Blues set that is only found in the football (American) category, or Hall of Fame football players showing up in the baseball Hall of Fame listings because an athlete played both sports professionally. These multi-sport sets make searching and organizing a beast. I can only imagine what stuff like this does to people with OCD. ” -Doe MG

“ I hate it when they block logos out. ” -RoyalChief

“ The back is clean and balanced. The front looks like it needs something...perhaps a school logo placed on the cap, or up in the top left corner would have been nice. A plus for using different pics on each side. ” -CollectingAfterDeath

“ Seems absurd that they had to airbrush his high school uniform. ” -switzr1
