Random Card of the Day

Friday, October 6, 2017

Set: 1967 Philadelphia (Rate)

Card: #166 Jerry Stovall

“ I know next to nothing about this brand...I know they did mostly football and I think a couple of non-sports issues, but that is the limit on knowledge. I think Topps owns the rights to their concepts now but not 100% sure on that. The front design is really good in my book, and the yellow borders really set it off. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ More vintage football. I like this picture too. ” -IfbBirdsCards

“ Love the old football cards.....something about them is so darn edgy....the way the NFL used to be. ” -tbshaw

“ Do not rub the coin on the back like it tells you too. ” -carthage44

“ Vintage Football Rah Rah Rah! ” -captkirk42

“ Nice vintage card . I'm not into football ,but I'd collect this set 'cause it looks cool. ” -uncaian

“ A really super player. As I usually say, a team logo on front would have been nice ” -NJDevils

“ If I could go back in time it'd be to buy nickel wax packs of Philadelphia cards at the local five and dime store. The '66 set were what started me in collecting, but the '67 is just as loved. ” -Sportzcommish

“ More great vintage football! Nice basic front (with the shield, but unfortunately no logo). But the back not so exciting. ” -kents_stuff

“ Cool. I'm not sure I've ever owned a card from this set. Philadelphia did some nice stuff back in the day of two leagues. ” -switzr1

“ Love the older cards. Terrible scan of front of card. ” -cjjt

“ I like it. Early football I great! ” -muskie027

Set: 2006-07 Ultra (Rate)

Card: #50 Milan Hejduk

“ If anyone from Upper Deck is reading this, please bring back Ultra as a standalone set! My all-time favorite brand deserves to be more than just an insert set in Showcase! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Great card, would be better though if the Cursive Hejduk wasn't there and the Milan Hejduk Colorado was larger and in the color font that the cursive Hejduk is. The back looks weird in that the Avs logo is over the jersey just off from where his sweater logo is. I think it is the same photo, which is a downer. Ultra made some good cards. I wish I would have had more of them from back in the day. ” -muskie027

“ The action shot is crisp and lively making for an attractive front. I'd call icing (as if I really know what that means!) for the back, though, as it is bland, and they use a cropping of the front photo - a Paninian mistake! ” -Sportzcommish

“ Not a bad card at all , actually a nice set . Hejduk was the last player from the 2001 Stanley Cup Avs. to be still playing for them when he retired in 2013. ” -uncaian

“ He had a fine, long career with just 1 team. ” -wax_house

“ I feel this design works for baseball, but not for hockey. ” -IfbBirdsCards

“ I realy like the simple, Stadium Club-like design, except for the scripty name. ” -olerud363

“ I loved the foot on the shoulder of the uniform. ” -carthage44

“ I like this Ultra design a little. Not thrilled about the player name font, script fonts are more difficult to read than printed fonts. Team Logo would be nice. Back is fine but for players with shorter careers maybe some highlights in that blank space below would be nice. ” -captkirk42

“ The front is great. The back, not so much -- totally mailed in the effort (too much dead space; repeat photo). A lot like Panini cards of today. ” -mkaz80

“ Relative of Frank the soccer player? ” -deporcoruña

“ Not sure why the name appears twice. Good design otherwise. ” -switzr1

“ Other than the use of the same photo front/rear, I have nothing to complain about on this card. Pretty nice overall. ” -kents_stuff

“ HEJDUK! A classic player and a timeless card design. ” -nubala

“ Fleer Ultra was always one of my favorite sets, which featured one of my favorite parallels, the Gold Medallion. ” -rmitchell6700

“ pretty close to the football version, football version name on front is flat not curved and pic/stats are vertical not horizontal.....i miss fleer ” -Thunderfoot

“ Clean design on front. Back good except re-use of picture--I hate that! ” -cjjt

Set: 2014-15 Panini Prestige (Rate)

Card: #101 Steven Adams

“ It's so weird to see Adams without a beard and sleeve tattoos. He has already played in the most games of anyone from his country, he's a New Zealand native...not that Panini can be bothered to include hometowns. This set was ok, but not great. At 200 cards it's far too small. There were three sets that year all using the same designs and checklists, but different SN for the autos and relics. Doing the checklists was not fun. It took me more than a day of working on nothing else to get them posted. The base version, which this is, is just standard card stock. The Plus is mirror foil, which I did not open any of, and Premium was holofoil, and a box of it was my Christmas present from my mom that year. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ No thank you on the card, but Adams looks so much different without the long hair and tattoos. ” -IfbBirdsCards

“ I normally don't comment on basketball because it's not my thing, but as a map geek, I kinda like the little state/province outlines on the reverse. ” -vrooomed

“ Now let's unveil the winner of Panini's annual "design a card in 60 seconds or less" contest. ” -dilemma19

“ Good looking card front. I like the in-action photo in the background. There is a little too much white space on the front though.Good looking back. All-in-all a quality looking card. ” -cnangle

“ I dislike the setup/design of the stats on the back. ” -carthage44

“ Now that is one terrible back of card. ” -NJDevils

“ Nice card design. back could use some help but the front is nice. ” -captkirk42

“ I recognize Dirk Nowitzki in the background more than I do Steven Adams. ” -rmitchell6700

“ Never seen these before. I like the front, despite the 30% white space. It's a stylish design with a couple of different images. It's easy to read. Perhaps that team logo could be a bit bigger to drown out the snowbank background. The back--not a fan. A nice faded image of him trying to scare a referee? And just 9 stats--4 basketball and 5 vital. Panini could've done better, I think. ” -kents_stuff

“ Where is his fabulous mustache? Must be an UER card. ” -UKboogie

“ The more RCOTD I see, the more I am annoyed by Panini using the same photo on the back of cards. ” -rmpaq5

Set: 2014 Upper Deck - '94 UD Tribute (Rate)

Card: #94-94 Bradley Roby

“ I think I like the original 1994 set better. ” -trauty

“ Great scan. Card number is kind of funny. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Upper Deck always seems to be in an Upper Echelon! ” -muskie027

“ With the popularity of college football (and basketball) in the States, I'm surprised there aren't more mainsteam sets out there. ” -olerud363

“ nice looking scan! ” -UKboogie

“ Awesome, a Buckeye in his Scarlet and Gray! Roby surprised most of us Ohio State faithful by being a first round selection; he was the source of great anxiety for us in several games. Capable of amazing athletic plays, then on the next play get lazy and get beat or get a stupid penalty. But I've still followed his progress with Denver with great interest, despite being a Chiefs fan. ” -Brimose

“ Annoys me to no end to have the same picture on the front and back. ” -cjjt

“ Nice design. However I do not like these mostly pros in college uniforms because the card maker doesn't have the NFL license and they often don't tell you which team the guy plays for in the pros. In Roby's case he was part of the Draft class and eventually signed with the Broncos. If I were a college football card collector I would love this set and all the trendy draft and prospect sets that are super popular now-days. ” -captkirk42

“ Loved the 1994 Upper Deck Football Rookie Cards! ” -carthage44

“ Oh boy. We have a questionable Rookie Card here. I'm gonna go run and hide. ” -switzr1

“ I've heard of Reggie Roby, but not Bradley. Sorry Bradley ” -rmitchell6700

“ That is a lot of 94s. ” -rmpaq5

“ not a bad looking card, but never was super excited by upper deck stuff, especsially once they lost the NFL liscense, dont remember here the players name ever ” -Thunderfoot

Set: 1992 Upper Deck Comic Ball 3 (Rate)

Card: #183 Base in the Hole

“ Yosemite Sam! ” -trauty

“ A Comic Ball card with only one number on it! I don't know what to think of that. I still watch Looney Tunes on a somewhat regular basis...have some on DVD even. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Yosemite Sam RC! ” -olerud363

“ "Oooo I'm gonna get ya you long eared, fur bearin’ flat-footed varmint!” ” -IfbBirdsCards

“ I just bought a box of these for my daughter at the National Card Show last month! ” -carthage44

“ wow, I didn't know Yosemite Sam could run like that, cool card ” -mbarlow092

“ Any Jr card is a winner in my book. ” -DarkSide830

“ Comic Ball nice concept at the time if not more than a bit silly. Comic Ball is definitely Odd Ball. You can't call it Non-Sport because it has the baseball theme. Series one was just the Looney Tune cartoon characters, Series 2 had Nolan Ryan and Reggie Jackson join the characters. this Series 3 continued the real baseball players with the cartoon characters Ken Griffey Jr and two others, then series 4 had Football and i think that was the last one. ” -captkirk42

“ Great set for kids. ” -NJDevils

“ I do like Yosemite Sam ” -switzr1

“ "Now slide DiMaggio,slide!!!!!!", "Hey I'm not DiMarrio." ” -deporcoruña

“ Ah...a card from one of my three vices as a sports card collector: Comic Ball, Beanie Babies, and Bill Nye the Science Guy. Biggest problem with this set is how to display them so the story reads properly. In a 9-sheet page, you need two sets. The front gets numbered left-to-right, top-to-bottom. But the back needs to be numbered top-to-bottom, left-to-right. ” -kents_stuff

“ Why do I have the feeling that right after this moment an anvil fell on Sam's head? ” -rmpaq5

Set: 1993-94 Donruss (Rate)

Card: #27 Dmitri Kvartalnov

“ Great stats for a rookie, but Teemu just about doubled his points total. ” -DanD

“ A little washed out but you can read his name on the back...not always easy to do with this set, even in hand. How do you pronounce his last name? ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Actually a pretty cool card. I am assuming the name is more readable if not foiled. ” -muskie027

“ I liked the design for 1994 Donruss baseball, and it works well for hockey too. ” -olerud363

“ Just a full action shot which is nice. Very simple. ” -carthage44

“ Overused design, but still solid. ” -DarkSide830

“ Nice photos, front and back. However, I'm not a big fan of borderless cards. ” -IfbBirdsCards

“ Maybe the foil reads better in person than in the scan, but it is a real detriment to an otherwise nice looking card on the front. Interesting the Bruin logo on the sweater shows black spokes while the one on the card below Donruss shows yellow spokes. The big box on the back is a big distraction. ” -kents_stuff

“ I'm gonna guess this guy for Celticwolfco's hockey trivia question. With a name like that, he has to be from rural eastern Washington. ” -switzr1

“ A true one-year wonder. ” -wax_house

“ Pretty nice design but the can you can't read any of the foil lettering. Back ugh is mostly just another picture with one year of stats. ” -captkirk42

Set: 1909-11 Colgan's Chips Stars of the Diamond E254 (Rate)

Card: #NNO Jack Dunn

“ Wow, awesome. Beware of Imitations. Not the sort of verbiage you see anymore. A shame. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Wow. How awesome is that!? I love it. ” -702tpr777

“ It's old so it's awesome! ” -muskie027

“ Nice ! ” -uncaian

“ So, Colgan's Chips is actually gum? Sweet little piece of history right here. ” -RoyalChief

“ Super Cool! ” -rmpaq5

“ It's fascinating to see the evolution (or devolution) of trading collectibles. From the simplistic design of a photograph on a small disc to sometimes a convoluted technologically-enhanced card of today. I like both, actually. ” -Sportzcommish

“ Very cool! ” -carthage44

“ You know, I was just thinking, why all the cards? Why not something else? Something different? But finally I see that the RCOTD is getting a round tuit. [Sorry...but I had to do that. Actually, I guess I'm not so sorry, as it this old pun still makes me chuckle.] This is a really nice example of early 20th century promotions. ” -kents_stuff

“ More vintage baseball! And the original Orioles! All around thumbs up. ” -IfbBirdsCards

“ First impression was that it was a coin. Kind of neat that the set would use Jack Dunn when he was with Baltimore, as he only played one year for the Baltimore Orioles, that being 1901. Absolutely cool. ” -CollectingAfterDeath

“ I think I still have a bag of those in my closet. ” -NJDevils

“ Wow going old school vintage here. Over 100 years old, old school vintage. Not much in the looks department but the "wow factor" of it being odd ball over 100 years old is enough to chase at least your homie team of these. If your homie team existed back then. ” -captkirk42

“ Love the slogan on the back "the gum that's round". Seeing older stuff like this is great, even though I don't know the player pictured it's still a good piece to see. Anyone know what violet chips are? ” -rmitchell6700

“ Mmmmm. Chips. ” -mkaz80

Set: 2012 Panini Adrenalyn XL Euro (Rate)

Card: #NNO Iker Casillas

“ I like the uniform. It looks more 80s than current but that's not a bad thing at all. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ For a while, the best goalie on the planet. Now, way past his prime. ” -deporcoruña

“ Very busy design. Too much going on for my liking. ” -olerud363

“ I thought we were done with the soccer! Oh well, super busy, not a very good card. ” -IfbBirdsCards

“ These must be popular for some reason? ” -carthage44

“ The Soccer CCGs are back. This one looks more like an online sweepstakes type card on the back. Don't like the design at all too busy and his yellow uniform blends into the yellow back ground. ” -captkirk42

“ I'm laughing to myself picturing all the comments about another soccer card now. ” -jasongerman9

“ Those are some serious gloves. ” -RoyalChief

“ It looks like an electric football game in the lower corner. Still don't know what the all numbers on soccer cards are. You think I would have figured it out by now with all the soccer cards showing up here. ” -cnangle

“ Good photo on an interesting background. A bit noisy, but not distracting for me. I know it's a game card of sorts, but I still wish it had some stats or something to learn about this guy. And although the gloves were a giveaway, I presume the lower right icon indicates he's a goalkeeper. It probably wouldn't have been hard for Panini to take a little extra time to actually spell that out somewhere, though. ” -kents_stuff

“ Are most Panini European releases gaming cards, or just soccer? ” -rmpaq5

Set: 1994 Magic the Gathering Revised Edition (Rate)

Card: #NNO Red Ward

“ I never learned how to play this...surprisingly none of my friends played...back when my friends were people I knew locally and not spread all over the world via the internet. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I have some many good memories of this set and it was the first set I ever collected. ” -ketchupman36

“ Awesome! I must be the target creature because I feel invincible! You here that Admins I have protection from red! You can't stop me from my crafty plot of thwarting your goals of being the greatest collecting card database ever! I will dodge every fireball you throw at me! I will riposte ever swing of your sword! All because of my Red Ward! ” -YoRicha

“ I suppose players of MTG would know what the heck this is. ” -olerud363

“ Zero interest. Zilch. ” -Sportzcommish

“ But red is my favorite color! ” -Brimose

“ I head this was making a comeback. Sad ” -carthage44

“ I was hoping for the Burt Ward Card. ” -kirkscards

“ MTG The mother of Collectible Card Games (CCG). When these puppies first came out early 1990s and the game was taking off I was tempted to try to collect them but I got wise before even attempting to start. ” -captkirk42

“ It's like sunscreen for vacations to Krypton. ” -kents_stuff

“ Magic? Nope. ” -rmitchell6700

“ So if I play this card, the Tigers have protection from the Reds and Red Sox? ” -rmpaq5

“ It isn't going to end well for this card/scan. It would only be worse if it was soccer. ” -UKboogie

Set: 1970-71 Dad's Cookies (Rate)

Card: #NNO Pat Quinn

“ We just had one of these cards come up recently...what are the odds that an obscure set like this would get the nod twice in such a short time? I'm sure the stats could be calculated but I'm not going to do it! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Darn it. I'm a bit too late to send my wrappers and a dime to get an NHLPA decal. Nice vintage hockey oddball! ” -olerud363

“ Classic hockey, nice! Interesting design, putting stats on the front. ” -IfbBirdsCards

“ Whoa. Great guy, great card ” -mbarlow092

“ Love this set ! Quinn was a tough hockey player & great coach . ” -uncaian

“ Classic hockey, nice! Interesting design, putting stats on the front. ” -IfbBirdsCards

“ They have no stats or team logos, but I still like these. Maybe due to the "uniformity" of the NHL Players uniforms and the odd shape makes it for a great "odd-ball" card. By using the posed photos, it gave a face to hockey players who weren't always seen too well (especially the goalies). Quinn went on to be a very successful and well-respected coach. ” -vrooomed

“ I wonder how many people started collecting because the bought a pack of cookies and received a few cards. ” -kirkscards

“ What is this? A Bookmark? ” -carthage44

“ I love it when food brands don't have logo rights. Cracks me right up. ” -wax_house

“ I like the title of this set and that's about it. It might make a good bookmark. ” -cnangle

“ Hmm didn't we have one of these about 3 months ago? Ah Yes posted on 27 June of this year John McKenzie. Older Brother to Bob & Doug. Hehehe. ” -captkirk42

“ Love the oddball food sets. ” -NJDevils

“ The legendary Pat Quinn, on an awesome vintage card. The NHLPA jersey is interesting. I'm curious about the backstory on this set. ” -kents_stuff

“ Dude! He looks like the brother from American Pickers! ” -Joshua825

“ Never mind him being so young here. I'm not used to seeing Pat Quinn without a piece of gum in his mouth. ” -DanD

“ The Mighty Quinn! Come on without, come on within... ” -Sportzcommish

“ Even with the odd shape, there is something really cool about it. I never knew Pat Quinn to be a player, I always knew him from modern day, so coaching, front office, etc. He wasn't much of a scorer, eh? Sorry, couldn't resist. ” -muskie027

“ God rest his soul, Pat Quinn gave people in Toronto reason to believe for a few years... ” -rmitchell6700
