Set: 2002 Topps Archives (Rate)

Card: #168 Hank Aaron



“ At least with this version, other than the 2001 version, you can actually see without a microscope the card numbering on the back. ” -rmpaq5

“ Reprinted vintage cards was an idea that was neat when the craze first started, but now it's being way overdone. They've lost their appeal for me. Nice Aaron though. ” -olerud363

“ Hank. Aaron. I like. The card is cool too. ;) ” -Doe MG

“ Actually not a bad looking archive card. ” -uncaian

“ Tight card if it was the original. ” -carthage44

“ Fantastic Reprint. For these I don't mind the "ARchives" stamp too much, but on the back the super long modern copyright line has always bugged me. I think more recent reprints have been slightly better with the location of the copyright line, but with these obvious tack it to the side, or bottom in a separate box makes it almost like identifying it as a modern reprint was an afterthought. ” -captkirk42

“ I love the card (even if a reprint) and I love the fact that there was over four years between the front and back scans being submitted! ” -bkklaos

“ I like the concept of the Archives set, although I don't know enough to know if this is a reprint of a vintage card or a card that never was. I like the latter a little more but both would be something I would collect if I did baseball. Great scans. Rare to be able to read that small reprint text but here I can. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Nice set for high-priced vintage fillers. ” -RoundtheDiamond87

“ A "vintage" rev-neg. Great card of a legendary player. Would love to own both this version and the original 57. ” -dilemma19

“ Even the reprints of the Topps 1957 set are classic. The first year Topps put career statistics on the back. The gold stamp in the upper right corner is the only downside to this set. Oh, the players is a good one, too. ” -jayoneill

“ Beautiful card. Hank looks so thin! ” -Sportzcommish

“ Many people consider the 1957 Topps design to be a classic and one of their favorites. As for me, I never really thought it was amazing. I like the simplicity, but the font just never did it for me. It looks like the white and yellow fonts you'd see in early color TV when they'd show you a grapic. Ugh, no. Also, I don't like that the font alternated in the same line. I think it would have been better for the name to be in ALL white or yellow, and then the team/position be in ALL of the other color. I do like the back though because it was able to fit a lot of information AND included stats from not just the previous season. I believe that was a first as well as the smaller card size. ” -Slug03

“ I love Topps Archives, so glad they started making it again a few years ago. ” -JoshReese92099

“ Great look of a retro card. Still not sold on these, but this looks nice. ” -muskie027

“ In my opinion, the real home run king ” -Bargunmaster

“ He probably would have been great even if he did bat lefty. ” -NJDevils

“ It's not the real thing, which is a shame. I have the real thing. One of my favorite cards. First card in my HOF binders. If I didn't have it, I wouldn't mind having this, as it's pretty nice. ” -vrooomed

“ Love archive sets! ” -cjjt

“ Great looking Archives card. Even better player. ” -Doc Floyd

Set: 1993 Magic the Gathering Unlimited (Rate)

Card: #232 Basalt Monolith



“ May I tap once to move on to another card? Please. ” -Sportzcommish

“ Tap this untap that. They use the word tap 5 times, LOL! ” -carthage44

“ it looks like the Washington Monument ” -Bargunmaster

“ I was wondering when they were going to put out a card like this....yeah, I was wondering. ” -NJDevils

“ OK so a Magic: The Gathering (MTG) card. I never got into the game part of this and was not about to get into the collecting end of this, even though I like some of the artwork that has been done through out the thousands of cards from this set/game/franchise. ” -captkirk42

“ Really, what is the idea of mana in general, and why is it used in every fantasy game? ” -DarkSide830

“ I feel lost when I see these, because I never got into the game. What makes one of these good? The name? The picture? The abilities of the card? Obviously the more rare, the more value in monetary terms, but in terms of collecting something awesome, what makes one of these desireable. ” -muskie027

Set: 2008 Upper Deck (Rate)

Card: #26 Mike Piazza



“ I like this for a 00's set. Classic vibrant UD card, decent back. Not great, but not bad. ” -muskie027

“ When I was in school and baseball was discussed, his name was usually mispronounced as "pizza" on purpose. Granted, I think that was 3rd or 4th grade when he got to the majors. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Upper deck 2008 will still be my favorite card set ever ” -Bargunmaster

“ A nearly flawless card with a classic batting stance, sharp photo with Piazza the lone focus, and the card company's logo occupying an appropriate amount of space on the upper right-hand corner. None of this set are on my Want List, but they will be. ” -Sportzcommish

“ This HOF'er was a 62nd round draft pick! ” -carthage44

“ He wasn't a great defensive catcher. In fact for many years he was lousy. The question I have is would he have been in the Hall of Fame if he puts up the same offensive numbers as a first baseman? ” -Brimose

“ Oakland, eh? Never knew that. ” -DanD

“ I'm not sure which is worse: Piazza as an Athletic or a Padre. Never mind...it's Piazza as a Marlin. Nevertheless, nice card and nice scan. ” -mkaz80

“ Wow! This came out the second year after I started collecting. I liked the simplistic design, but I didn't like the foil they used because it made the cards hard to read sometimes. If these had looked more like the 08 UD first edition I would have liked it more. But, it's not bad. This was Piazza's last base card for UD. What a player he was even in his later years. ” -Slug03

“ Great back of the card. Front is clean and solid also. Only draw back is the small foil making some of the cards in the set difficult to read. ” -rmpaq5

Set: 1998 Collector's Choice (Rate)

Card: #74 Bartolo Colon



“ Solid card. Not too fond of the font used for his name but a minor quibble really. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Big sexy looking good on this card ” -Bargunmaster

“ I want to like this card because I'm big on having a full frontal action picture, but the logos and labels seem misplaced, or odd as in the "Diamond Debut" label. I shall pass. ” -Sportzcommish

“ Neat blast from the past. Big Sexy when he was young and skinny! ” -olerud363

“ That Diamond Debut logo needs to be bigger. Seriously it only takes up the same amount of space as 1/4 of Colon's body. It needs to be all logo, and a tiny picture of Colon squished down into the corner. ” -rmpaq5

“ Overall I kinda like this card, particularly the back. If I had to change something, it would be to reduce the real estate consumed by logos and IP rights statements, but nothing else comes to mind that I'd use to fill the space. Can't quite make out Bartolo's weight from the scan, but I suspect he swallowed a teammate sometime after these photos were taken. Looks like a changeup grip in both photos. Coincidence?!? ” -dilemma19

“ Not sure what that nonsense is going on in the right top corner. If that wasn't there it would be an OK front. Back seems too cluttered and not much in the Stats column. ” -captkirk42

“ It's Medium Sexy ” -JoshReese92099

“ I'm surprised to find myself saying this, but I like this card. In fact, I often find myself enjoying many UD Collector's Choice products. I don't have any in my collection but for a low-end product I like them. I love the back of this card, the "did you know" call-out has a nice retro look. I don't like the half circle team identifier though. ” -cnangle

“ It's amazing this guy is still pitching in the league. ” -carthage44

“ He's turned into quite the lovable character these days. Great timing. ” -joshthurman

“ Just goes to show you how long he's been around. ” -deporcoruña

“ dated diamond debut is pretty cool ” -Thunderfoot

“ I hate how all the writing on these cards is so small. ” -suomibear8

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
