Set: 2003 Bazooka (Rate)

Card: #158 Jermaine Dye

“ Very simplistic, but it really works. If I collected baseball I would have been a big fan of this set. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ A nice simple set that was cheep enough for kids to buy. Don't love the back though. ” -CluelessJoe

“ I remember chasing the team logo variations of the Bazooka Joe card. Fun times. ” -olerud363

“ Nice card! I had no idea Topps made a bazooka brand this late (03). I remember them in the *80's, so this is a nice flashback. Good to see a former Royal as well....DYE-NO-MITE! ” -RoyalChief

“ Just plain ugly. Too much white border and wasted space. The oversized white circle for the team logo. Same with the oversized pennant for the name. Leaving a large gray area for the position. All overly disproportionate. And the wavy name is an annoyance to read. Dye is one of 118 players who hit a home run in their first major league at bat. ” -C2Cigars

“ No career stats at all? Just the most recent season? Maybe just because that's so unusual is why I am thinking I don't like it. Dye was a decent journeyman, gave value but never a star. ” -Brimose

“ Cheaply made cards and it shows. ” -carthage44

“ This is one of the many sets that I need to make a serious building effort on. I like it. I have a sub-set of all 31 of the Bazooka Joe cards. I have 5 of the minis and need to get all 31 of the Silver parallels of card number 7. ” -captkirk42

“ This was issued during my hiatus, but it looks like a precursor to 'Triple Play'. Based on the team logo size, Topps only had a partial license? ” -dilemma19

“ My first thought when I saw this card was "Black Flag". That's my impression of the name plate on the front. The team logo is made to look even smaller by the excessive white circle surrounding it. The back of this card, though well balanced, has only one year of stats. This card really needs help. ” -CollectingAfterDeath

“ I miss the Bazooka sets! ” -mkaz80

“ Way too simple in 2003 from a major company. ” -Sportzcommish

“ This looks like a Procards 1980's Minor League card. Though the Procards were much better. ” -jupiterhill

Set: 1992 Topps (Rate)

Card: #182 Jeff Reardon

“ I really like this design...and as time goes on, I like it more and more. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Wonderful looking cards. ” -ketchupman36

“ I like that his head is out past the border, but his foot is behind it. Looks like he is actually coming out of the card. ” -switzr1

“ Simple, classic design. ” -Sportzcommish

“ He had a beard when beards were not as cool! Always liked the 1992 set....brings back good memories......no "Winner" here though. ” -tbshaw

“ Such a bland design. Probably iconic because of it... ” -suomibear8

“ Very basic but the card highlights the action player photo which is great. ” -carthage44

“ These cards seemed the first to change things around. Looking at my cards in binders (by year) it's a shock as you are flipping through to all of a sudden run into these bright white backs. It seemed from there things just got fancier and fancier. ” -RoyalChief

“ The one thing picture wise that has always bothered me about this design is the colour border just inside the picture. This card is a great example. His leg is behind the border on the left, and his head is in front of the border on the right. So...is he pitching through an open door? ” -rmpaq5

“ Ah 1992 Topps when Topps switched the "vintage" cardboard stock to thinner slightly thicker than photostock cardstock. I've always liked the simple front design (not the "gold" or "gold winners" variant/parallel with the gold embossed names you couldn't read even if you were a 10 year old kid). The back stats are nice but there is something that bugs me about them. I'm not sure what it is. Maybe using 3 or 4 font colors? ” -captkirk42

“ His head looks like it was awkwardly photoshopped onto someone else's body! Reardon was consistently good for a very long stretch. He should get more respect. ” -dilemma19

“ Watched him today on twitter give up a two run homer to Ed Sprague in the '92 World Series. I had forgotten that he had spent some time in Boston before seeing this card. Glad to see that he did get one WS ring during his long career (87 in Minnesota). ” -rmitchell6700

“ Like the 1992 Topps. Nice Clean Looking Card. ” -kirkscards

“ my favorite part about 92 topps was the pics of stadiums on the back, but this card was snubbed up that ” -Thunderfoot

“ He had a beard when it wasn't cool and he popped man buns. ” -UKboogie

Set: 2010 Top Trumps Specials Manchester United (Rate)

Card: #NNO Michael Carrick

“ Looks like an advertisement you'd receive in the mail with the Wal-Mart circular that ends up in the recycling bin. (Unless it's soiled, then it's just garbage.) ” -Sportzcommish

“ Bad all-around. ” -carthage44

“ The front looks like a back and the back like a front. But then again, they drive on the left. ” -NJDevils

“ Way too much going on here. ” -DarkSide830

“ Hey, I had AIG insurance! Got rid of it too! ” -Joshua825

“ These Trumps cards I think were much more popular in the UK than here in America. You hardly hear anything about them. I just know they have all sorts of subjects, sports and non-sport. I think they are primarily geared for kids. ” -captkirk42

“ I'm guessing this is some sort of card game?? I really liked the MUFC kits that had the blue stripe across the chest. Very sharp! ” -mkaz80

Set: 2014 Topps High Tek (Rate)

Card: #HT-JH Jason Heyward

“ Such a neat card. The clear aspect really shows in this scan. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Topps Tek...confusing collectors for two decades. ” -mkaz80

“ Wow, what a great scan for a clear card! ” -carthage44

“ J-Hey! He looks so much better in a Cubs uniform. Fact. ” -Doe MG

“ If I tried to design a crappier card I couldn't. ” -NJDevils

“ I am not a fan of Topps HIgh Tek. Too many variants and strange names for them. Not huge on acetate cards either. I have a few and like some of them, might even keep some of the PC guys but I don't seek them out. ” -captkirk42

“ Man, Tek is soooooooooooooo awful. ” -DarkSide830

“ Cool looking cards but I like the older sets a little more. ” -Joshua825

“ I think this look pretty cool. Hate the tiny stats on the back though. ” -muskie027

Set: 1994 Collector's Choice (Rate)

Card: #436 Mike Butcher

“ The thing that stands out from this average card design is the logo that shows the player's position. The set has five different logos, two for pitchers and three for batters. ” -Sportzcommish

“ I remember buying a lot of '94 Collector's Choice packs as a kid when it first came out. It was the first non-Topps set that I really wanted to complete. It still holds up as an awesome design today! ” -mkaz80

“ I have a soft spot for the Collector's Choice sets, especially this one! ” -carthage44

“ Meh ” -DarkSide830

“ Collectors Choice, a nice cheaper alternative to the popular base sets of the day. Does anyone today have as high a leg kick as does the pitcher in the lower right hand corner? ” -rmitchell6700

“ I like the subtle pinstriped border. More interesting than the plain white in other sports. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Upper deck collectors choice mike butcher angels RHP ” -Jdgetz2004

“ Ohhhhhh good ole Collector's Choice. When I was a kid, I loved grabbing packs of these. ” -nubala

“ I used to love buying these for the silver parallels! Now, I see how how bad the quality they made these. But I still have a lot to add! ” -Joshua825

“ Not bad, but a bigger name and team and less of a generic pitch in the corner would have been better. Upper Deck base was so much better than Collector's Choice. ” -muskie027

Set: 1991 Mattel Barbie (Rate)

Card: #153 "Arabian Nights" Ken

“ Oh holy heck. No. No, no, no, no, no. ” -muskie027

“ Ohh, that text on the back is terrible. Barbie, your man is wearing a skirt! (Not that it matters considering what Ken has going on down there) And his turban is crooked! Not to mention the countenance showing no emotion!my This is so bad it's actually good. So what would you wish for if you only got one wish? ” -Billy Kingsley

“ "I'm ready for our date, Arabian Ken!" "IT"S JUST KEN!!!" ” -DanD

“ All I can say about this card is "hmmm" ” -ketchupman36

“ Okay, so I just returned from a trip to the British Isles and Europe and witnessed firsthand Scotsmen in kilts. THEY looked tough and manly. Ken just looks like a doll. ” -Sportzcommish

“ I can't help but think about "Toy Story 3" when I look at this card. ” -mkaz80

“ Just plain hilarious! ” -carthage44

“ Parallel dimension of a skating rink ? The 'C' is blue instead of white. Nothing else to add. ” -jonnic

“ I don't ever want to hear jokes about the Pokemon cards again...EVER ” -SFC Temple

“ 1964s Aladdin Ken sure beats the heck out out 2017s "Man-bun" Ken. ” -captkirk42

“ Ken. Really dude. Don't you know your supposed to use the one wish to wish for a thousand more wishes? C'mon man. ” -CollectingAfterDeath

“ I needed a good laugh. ” -NJDevils

Set: 1990 Star Bo Jackson (Rate)

Card: #8 Bo Jackson

“ Such an ugly card and the small Bo with nothing but what seems like a void space makes it worse. The color scheme is awful This card is bad. ” -muskie027

“ Sure a great athlete. Wish he was able to stay healthy. People said he should have stuck to one sport but he was fun to watch in both! ” -carthage44

“ Bo Knows Oddballs. ” -mkaz80

“ What can I say? I'm a little bit biased. Love it! ” -vrooomed

“ Great color......for an Easter egg ” -NJDevils

“ Two sports just like Tim Tebow. ” -kirkscards

“ Great athlete. Not so great card. ” -jayoneill

“ Bo knows Star Company? Card #3 is my favorite photo in this set. ” -UKboogie

“ I'm just tired of Star cards. They are OK and nice for what they were when they were but now I'm just tired of them. ” -captkirk42

Set: 1999 Donruss Preferred QBC - Power (Rate)

Card: #37 Jerry Rice

“ It's definitely going on my want list, not only because I collect Rice, but because it's an attractive card. I'd give it a 9.5. ” -Sportzcommish

“ I think I would prefer most other cards over this set ” -aussiewayne

“ Hmm I'd like to see this in person, is that foil, felt or glitter? Ugly as all get out, but is sort of close to matching team colors. Back is nice even though it has abbreviated stats. Come on showing only the last 3 years of a 14 year vet destined to be a HOFer. ” -captkirk42

“ Representing Mississippi Valley State Delta Devils. ” -carthage44

“ Nice looking card. Seems to be a parallel. I bet it looks even nicer in hand. And serially numbered, which I like! Actually, I'm addicted to SN cards, but that's no secret, lol. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Partial career stats on back may be only issue, otherwise, a very good looking card. ” -CollectingAfterDeath

“ Not a fan of Donruss Preferred. Too much pizzazz. Not enough football. ” -jayoneill

“ Might as well blank out the people in the background if you are going to get artsy on the front. Just no point in the being there on the other side of the spikes. ” -NJDevils

Set: 1997-98 Pinnacle Inside - Inside Track (Rate)

Card: #6 Martin Brodeur

“ Spent all but 7 games in his 1,266 career games with the Devils. Pretty amazing in this day in age! ” -carthage44

“ Goalies always look short and fat to me, and it's surprising sometimes when I see a photo of a goalie without all of his gear, how physically athletic they really are. I know it shouldn't be surprising, but my brain just can't help it sometimes ” -Brimose

“ That's a nice card!!! ” -CollectingAfterDeath

“ Nice insert...no missing the fact that it's a Pinnacle card, it just has that "look". Exceptionally great scan for what appears to be a mirror foil card. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ No major complaints here. The design reminds me a little of the James Bond looking through the gun barrel opening mixed with some kind of camera lens look. I like the look of this insert set better than the base cards from this set. ” -captkirk42

“ Holy goalies! I like the front, and the back is decent for an insert. ” -dilemma19

“ The cards that came in cans!! I think I had all the cans at one point. They may still be in my parent's attic. ” -DanD

“ Brodeur as ROTCD on the same day Lundvist is the feature. Is there a goalie or hockey streak coming? I am very meh on this card. ” -muskie027

Set: 2016-17 SMG Ntreev Superstar Black Edition (Rate)

Card: #SBCBK-084-N Hee-Sang Yoon

“ The front has a nice colored border, except that the border should have been smaller / thinner at the bottom side of the card. Maybe pull down the picture a smidge, so the hand with the ball makes it into the frame. The back appears to be nicely balanced. Not sure, but looks like an era of 4.84, with a whip of 1.52. Like the young pitcher, this card needs a little refinement, but I still like this card. ” -CollectingAfterDeath

“ I wonder if these are hot sellers! ” -carthage44

“ Pretty nice design. I can't read it, but it looks good. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Good to see a card from Japan in the random card. There are a couple of card bloggers that chat about Japanese baseball cards. Both of the blogs I've seen the blogger is either currently living in Japan or had lived in Japan, there might be a few other bloggers who occasionally blog about the NPB (Nippon Professional Baseball) league. ” -captkirk42

“ Clean. Maybe too clean. It should be forbidden to use the same photo on both the front and back of a card. ” -dilemma19

“ I dig the cap logo. ” -mkaz80

“ This would make a nice card for an All Time St. Louis Cardinals set. I actually like this. A little less bottom border or something more to fill it and this would be really good. Can't say I know much about Hee Sang Yoon. I think it is funny that all the stat headers are in a foreign character set, except WHIP at the end. ” -muskie027
