Set: 1988 Score (Rate)

Card: #233 Tom Brookens

“ Ahhh, a classic (for Score), and a Tiger! Nice simple early design for a then newer company. Nice. ” -Kaline6

“ There is absolutely nothing special about the card design...but Tommy Brookens was one of my absolute favourites when I was a kid!!! ” -rmpaq5

“ The premier Score baseball set. I disliked the card numbers (I'm a set sorter) because they were too small (1989's were much better - someone must have told them about it). I liked the set more when it was released than I do now, but I still think it was a solid debut effort. ” -vrooomed

“ 88 Score is a winning design. 3 stars, per the rating in the bottom-left corner. They had colorful backs with a second photo, outstanding writing (though apparently not proofread), and full stats. The text is all small, but legible. Maybe I could gripe about the lack of team name/logo on the front (which was added in 1989), but overall it's well done. I miss Score, and their plastic bag packaging. ” -dilemma19

“ AMAZING STASH ALERT! ” -carthage44

“ Simply Score. Year One. Sounds more like a comic book title than a baseball card set. LOL. I like the simplicity of the front. Having the team name on the front would have been nice at least they put the team name and logo on the back. Back of the card is nice and tight. I has his career stats, a small bio and even a profile headshot. Nice. ” -captkirk42

“ Liked all the info on the back. Other than that, pretty dull. Killer mustache, though! ” -pistonfan

“ I will agree with anyone who has nothing nice to say about this card. ” -NJDevils

“ I really dislike most of the Score cards. This is no exception. Very plain design without much to keep interest. Why not put them team logo on front instead of the 3 stars? ” -Mitch

Set: 2002-03 Parkhurst (Rate)

Card: #86 Scott Hartnell

“ this a Parkhurst card? ” -switzr1

“ Are these standard-sized cards? I know if I owned some, I'd probably be tempted to chop off the Parkhurst banner taking up so much space along the side, resulting in long skinny cards. ” -dilemma19

“ Not a big fan of the a player figure cropped and placed on a sterile background. In this case it makes Hartnell looked distorted and unnatural. ” -koloth42

“ Great player , shows up every night , wish I could say the same about this card. ” -uncaian

“ OK design I guess. What is that green background image? ” -captkirk42

“ I know Parkhurst's logo is green but it doesn't mean every design they make has to have that shade of green incorporated in their cards. ” -carthage44

“ Kinda stinks the Flyers traded him...he was a nice piece, and would've been useful in the playoffs. (Don't get me started about the Caps) ” -DarkSide830

“ There is something I don't like about the card company sticking their name and logo on about 25% of this card's real estate. The card itself looks pretty cool, but the team logo somewhere would have been a nice touch. Perhaps they should have flipped the company name and logo with the player name and team. ” -muskie027

Set: 1949 Bowman (Rate)

Card: #220 Johnny McCarthy

“ One day, I'll own a 1949 Bowman. Love the look, and love the vintage cards. ” -vrooomed

“ All vintage is cool! I wonder if any of the Bowman trinkets you could mail away for have survived? ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I didn't know cards originally included ghosts on them. Is that a bad scan or just the way it looks? ” -DarkSide830

“ Nice card , wish I had more in my collection - maybe someday. ” -uncaian

“ If life were only as simple as this wonderful card. Back in 1949, few people had TVs. This was probably the only way fans got to see the non-star players. ” -NJdevils

“ Very nice, crease and all. Love them vintage! ” -Kaline6

“ Very cool vintage. Love the statement on the back about the Baseball ring giveaway "Not valid where contrary to State laws" ” -captkirk42

“ Yucky crease! ” -suomibear8

Set: 1997-98 Fleer (Rate)

Card: #12 Vlade Divac

“ I hated this set when it was new...but now I love it. If I handle it too much the texture on the cards will start to affect my hands like fingernails on a chalkboard but I still love it now. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Another multi-used design per year per manufacturer. That being said on this particular card the placement of the name and team (although wish a bit more pronounced) fits the photo perfectly. ” -rmpaq5

“ When I first looked at this card I thought his name was Wade Diva. ” -uncaian

“ Yes! Love the photo. Name and team could be a bit easier to read, but I forgive you, Fleer. ” -dilemma19

“ He was always fun to watch play. ” -carthage44

“ Back is OK. Front? Not for a base card. A special insert maybe but these over the head top of the basket shots are not good for base cards. ” -captkirk42

“ Always liked full of under basket action shots from above, definitely not a fan of horizontally oriented cards. This set was printed on rough both side uncoated paper – in basketball I know only two sets produced that way. ” -Thomas_Kava

“ I am not so irritating. ” -UKboogie

“ I am not really liking this card. I didn't collect this set, and after seeing this, I don't have a desire to. It is a better basketball picture than a card. The player and team name is tough to read, there is no logo, and overall, there is just nothing that really makes me like this card. ” -muskie027

Set: 2007 Upper Deck Goudey - Red Backs (Rate)

Card: #183 Kevin Kouzmanoff

“ Red? More like brown back. I like the throwback cards so this is cool in my book. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ A great tribute to some of the classic 30s issues. Is Kouzmanoff really so pale/transluscent/ghostlike in person? ” -dilemma19

“ Not a bad set, but I don't like the smaller size for the base set. I prefer the 2008 Goudey over this set. ” -CluelessJoe

“ Nice modern retro card based on a very vintage design. I sort of wish they hadn't used the modern "rookie card" logo on these. It is sad that now days retro cards are too mainstream. These are the last of the few sets that did things right. ” -captkirk42

“ ugh! Old design rehash. These aren't a tribute to vintage; they're an insult. ” -C2Cigars

“ Nice tree in the background. ” -carthage44

“ No thank you, Mr U. Deck. ” -NJdevils

“ The "Red Backs" parallel IMMEDIATELY lost me. I hate sets distinguished only by a color of script or foil. At least I can tell when a border that is white in the base set is dark on a parallel (even if I can't tell what color it is). But lettering and foil are much harder for my eyes to recognize aren't all the same. Decent looking card otherwise. ” -switzr1

“ I'm starting to really like the Goudey sets, I like the look of the design and look of the card. I'm slowly working on the sets, the parallels will be the challenge! ” -Joshua825

Set: 2003 Upper Deck (Rate)

Card: #8 Earl Snyder

“ 19 MLB games. 12 hits, 1 of which was a HR. 6 organizations. At least he made it to the bigs! Good for him. ” -vrooomed

“ Wow, 36th round draft pick. Not much of a star rookie I would say. ” -carthage44

“ I'm not sure what to think about this set. I have some of these and it is an OK design. hard to read the "Star Rookie" tag on front. For vets it is their name and jersey number there in the hard to read foil. Man I wish the card companies had never used the foil lettering for base sets. ” -captkirk42

“ He looks like someone who heard something funny while sitting on the bench and he's not part of it and his eyes are saying: Oh well... ” -JimStaub

“ Nice front design. Simple and uncomplicated. One tweak I'd make is move the red name/team banner farther down. I'd like to see some stats on the back. So, apparently all it takes is to play 18 games and bat .200 to be called a Star. ” -C2Cigars

Set: 1999 Pacific Paramount (Rate)

Card: #180 Hugh Douglas

“ Meh. Not really sure what Pacific was going for here...I can't tell if it's supposed to be a whiteout theme (like SP Authentic) or if it's just a washed out scan. I don't know enough about football to know if the shadow border around his name is team colors or just randomly different. If it's the former, that's not too bad, but if it's the latter, then I would not like that at all. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ This may be the worst card ever. I'm hard-pressed to find anything redeeming about it! ” -dilemma19

“ Nothing paramount about this design. ” -carthage44

“ Looks like he's playing freeze tag. ” -NJdevils

“ Subtract some points for foil lettering, at least this you can sort of read. Can't tell is that the team name under the player name? Needs clear team name and team logo would be nice. Moving on to the back mostly somewhat OK except obvious only one year of stats, minus several million since the stats are vertical not horizontal. Ugly looking card did I say it was ugly? NO? Well it is Ugly. ” -captkirk42

“ I love the Pacific sets from this era, but the color foil parallels in some of the sets are enough to drive a person mad. ” -switzr1

“ Do the Hustle! Do do do do do do do..... ( I got nothin') ” -Kaline6

Set: 2010 Panini Crown Royale (Rate)

Card: #68 LaDainian Tomlinson

“ Still feels wrong to see him as a Jet ” -volbox

“ Really cool design. I normally don't like cards where the player is superimposed over a computer generated background but these Crown Royale cards are really nice. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ A very regal card! I don't follow football very closely, but have certainly heard of Tomlinson. Although Panini does a good job of minimizing it with theor baseball products, it really makes a difference when actual team names and logos are portrayed on cards. ” -dilemma19

“ I assume this is die-cut. I love die-cut cards as inserts or special sets. ” -wax_house

“ Over all the design is OK. I am not a fan of the Crown Royal di-cuts, At least you can read all the info on the front. That is a rarity for modern cards. The back would be much better if more than one year stats. Way too much wasted space at top in the design. ” -captkirk42

“ Really dislike the scans that still have the soft sleeve on the card. ” -carthage44

“ Looks like it's from a bottle of booze ” -NJDevils

“ H-I-D-E-O-U-S. ” -UKboogie

Set: 2013 Topps Museum Collection - Copper (Rate)

Card: #81 Evan Longoria

“ Nice card...GREAT scan. Unusual SN...424? Seems like an odd choice but I like odd stuff. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Super boring. ” -carthage44

“ Sigh! In a vacuum, this is a pretty nice card. Too bad there are millions of similar designs rendering this one dull and forgettable. Not the best photo by the way. I know you can do better, Topps! ” -dilemma19

“ Nice card. Not sure why it is numbered /424 though. Seems unusual. I think a Rays fan would be very happy to own this one. ” -switzr1

“ I do like the way the player foreground picture bursts out of the photo border. ” -rmpaq5

Set: 2015 Topps WWE Undisputed - Autographs Black (Rate)

Card: #UA-AB Alundra Blayze

“ SN1! Cool! I love SN1s for some reason. Random thought, I wonder how long it takes a wrestler (or actor, etc) to perfect an autograph for the stage name they use? I didn't perfect my signature until I was in my mid-20s and I've been signing the same name my whole life. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ The only cool thing about this card is that it is serial numbered 1 of 50. ” -carthage44

“ I started watching WWF after she left I guess. I've heard of her but never saw any matches she was in. But the card looks very cool and the fact it's numbered makes it even better! ” -Joshua825

“ AKA Madusa ,nice auto. not a bad looking card & one of the best lady wrestlers of all time. ” -uncaian

“ Nice change of pace for the card of the day. An autograph card. I'm not huge on wrastling but many times I've seen cards like this one and feel like I want to at least pursue some of the autographs. ” -captkirk42

“ We don't get many autograph cards as RCOTD. And it's Wrestling too. I like it! ” -switzr1
