Random Card of the Day

Thursday, June 8, 2017

Set: 1999 Bowman (Rate)

Card: #296 Jason Marquis

“ I like this design. I also like the blue foil. I wish they had returned Bowman to the NBA earlier so I could have collected this design. Also, great scan. It looks like the cards do in hand and that is the best kind of scan. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Too much border, and it's ugly as well. ” -Doc Floyd

“ Nice card. Marquis was traded from Atlanta to the Cardinals for JD Drew. St. Louis wouldn't complete the trade until Atlanta added a prospect: one Adam Wainwright. Not a bad deal for the Cardinals. ” -Brimose

“ Love the scouting reports on the backs of these cards. ” -carthage44

“ A pretty nice scan of a card that probably doesn't scan well. This is one of the last Bowman designs I liked. Marquis stuck around for a solid 15yr career, despite never putting up fantastic numbers. ” -dilemma19

“ Don't like the front, too much going on. Never did get into the modern Bowman. ” -CluelessJoe

“ For the most part I am OK with this Bowman Design, except the vertical faux signature. I've got some of these of my PC teams (Orioles/Expos) not sure if I have the full teams or not. This is one of those sets that I almost want to try to complete the full thing, but sort of don't. ” -captkirk42

“ Tough on the eyes, but that I think is because it doesn't scan well. It looks like it could be great in hand. I would have to defer to those who have some. I never liked Bowman backs though. ” -muskie027

Set: 2006 Press Pass Premium (Rate)

Card: #27 Ken Schrader

“ Ken Schrader is one of those guys that nobody ever has anything bad to say about...and the same goes for his team on this card, the Wood Brothers, in operation continuously since 1953, NASCAR's oldest team. Founded by Glen Wood, who stormed the beach on D-Day in Normandy, and his brother Leonard, both are still with the team despite Glen crossing the 90 year old barrier (and Leonard's 88!) although their sons and grandchildren do most of the operations now. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Kenny's doing the Saturday Night fever strut. ” -rmpaq5

“ I like the back a lot better than the front. Couldn't they have found a better pic of him? Good design otherwise. Reminds me, I need some more Little Debbies. ” -Doc Floyd

“ I was going to say The Right Stuff, but then I noticed LIttle Debbies. Then I thought of my grandkids. ” -Sportzcommish

“ Looks kind of cool. I think it has a lot of what a racing card should have. ” -muskie027

“ Not really a racing fan, but I'd at least like to see the car pictured too! ” -olerud363

“ OK racing card I guess. Don't know I don't follow racing. ” -captkirk42

“ back says 2006 will be his final season, he actually raced till about 2014 but only on a part time basis, still travels the country going to local short tracks ” -Thunderfoot

Set: 1999 Pacific Revolution - Shadow Series (Rate)

Card: #6 Steve Finley

“ It's a Pacific! Too much stuff going on here. Which is typical for a Pacific card. ” -cnangle

“ I bet this looks really nice in hand. Not sure what to make of it based on the scan alone. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ It's ok, except for that hideous sunburst in the background. Thought he was a pitcher batting at first. ” -Doc Floyd

“ Cohesiveness was lacking between the Front-of-Card and Back-of-Card departments. The back looks like an appealing baseball card. The front as if Finley's appealing for an end to the paintball attack. ” -Sportzcommish

“ Uh, there is a lot going on here. Revolution? Shadow Series? I see neither a revolution nor a shadow on this card, but aside from that, as a SN insert, it looks kind of cool, but it also is missing something, not sure what. Overall, a slightly above average insert card. ” -muskie027

“ Steve Finley was a good player for a long time. ” -carthage44

“ Too loud, no former Buckeyes in the set, and looking at the Cardinals they're ok but not great. Zero interest in this set beyond getting those Cardinals. ” -Brimose

“ I have nothing nice to say about this card. ” -yokonashiwa

“ I think ancient aliens had something to do with the design of this card. I'm not saying it's bad...but it's definitely aliens. ” -mkaz80

“ I was in on a group break of these things a couple of years ago. In my book they are too flashy, but some collectors really enjoy them. ” -captkirk42

Set: 2013 Topps Pro Debut (Rate)

Card: #2 Arismendy Alcantara

“ What are the white stripes on his helmet? If it is only for decoration that looks pretty bad. ” -rmpaq5

“ I like it. Solid design. Good scan. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Pretty sharp design, and no question about that being a Topps back. Shame they make like 80 sets a year, with 50 parallels for most of them though. ” -Doc Floyd

“ Yeah, but is this the primary set Topps-only owners should get, or is this another in the myriad of offshoots? Methinks the latter. ” -Sportzcommish

“ I've always liked the 2013 design. Simple and incluttered. ” -olerud363

“ Another one of the Cubs expendable prospects since they have such a plethora of talent. ” -carthage44

“ Topps make too many baseball cards. This is one of them. ” -jayoneill

“ A nice design with a very clean look. I wasn't back ni the hobby in 2013, but recently received a lot of the 2013 Topps and in general, a good year for Topps!!! ” -muskie027

“ Nice to see him back in the Majors, but Cubs fans could be unhappy, considering he's now with the division rival Reds. ” -DarkSide830

“ I know some people like them, but I am not a fan of minor league cards. Even a good looking card from Topps. ” -cnangle

Set: 2002 Fleer Platinum (Rate)

Card: #168 David Boston

“ I like the little things about this card, namely the high school goal posts on the front and back that give it that nostalgic feel which I'm sure was the intent. ” -Sportzcommish

“ Gotta love those Ohio State jail birds. ” -carthage44

“ Took me a second to realize the green trapezoid in the bottom left corner is a mini football field w/ goal post. Whether it's football or baseball, I always liked Fleer's 'retro' offerings. ” -mkaz80

“ Finally I get to comment on a football card. Nice looking card; a throwback to the 1960 set. I don't like that there aren't stats on the back. They could have kept the retro look and improved upon the original by adding stats. ” -cnangle

“ Just not feeling this one. ” -kirkscards

“ Chicago Cardinals - St Louis Cardinals - Phoenix Cardinals - Arizona Cardinals Oh, how I hate change. Btw, the original Chicago Cardinals were named for the color not the bird. ” -NJDevils

“ Kinda retro yet not at the same time. I like it. ” -rmpaq5

“ 2nd Buckeye this month!! Boston had potential but he was too concerned with beefing up his muscles, probably not within the rules. But man did I love watching him against Woodson and That Team Up North! ” -Brimose

Set: 1996 Comic Images William Stout 3: Saurians and Sorcerers - Bonus MagnaChrome Boxtopper (Rate)

Card: #NNO The Ghoulish Trio

“ Huh? I am out on this one. ” -muskie027

“ The Crypt Keeper had one hell of a split-finger fastball in his prime... ” -mkaz80

“ Cool , nice tribute , well done .These 3 took turns scaring the heck out of me as a kid . ” -uncaian

“ Not that this card is bad enough, the mirrored background is just bad. ” -carthage44

“ I think this is awesome! Having zero artist talent myself, I really appreciate the art that is produced! ” -bkklaos

“ What the.......No!!! ” -cnangle

“ wtf is this even? ” -Thunderfoot

“ What the? ” -CluelessJoe

“ And the award for the Longest and Most Useless Title goes to......... ” -NJDevils

Set: 1986 Dorman's Cheese (Rate)

Card: #NNO Rickey Henderson

“ Call me a nostalgic sap, but I love these simple regional small release cards. Funny how with Panini having no logos, how missing the Yankees logo does not look to unusual. ” -tbshaw

“ Rickey's taking the whole "I'm on a Dorman's Cheese baseball card" thing really well. Good on him! ” -mkaz80

“ Not the greatest food issue I have ever seen, but it was 1986. It isn't awful, but close. Loved Rickey though. ” -muskie027

“ Yikes. Awful looking card, even by food-issue standards. I'd forgotten that Rickey was born Christmas day...Good thing this card reminds me, in type nearly as big as his name! ” -dilemma19

“ I wonder how good Dorman's Cheese? Must be pretty good since they produced baseball cards. ” -carthage44

“ He looks much older than 28 years old in this photo. Pretty good year stats-wise for being in the mid 80s. ” -Brimose

“ I haven't seen any cards from this set before. Its not a terrible card. Simple and in the style of the time period. If I was a player collector and not a set-builder I would add it to my collection. However, I like full stats on the back and a little more thought/effort put into the design of a card. ” -cnangle

“ Love the oddball stuff like this. ” -702tpr777

“ Weren't these released in two-card panels originally? Should the set be listed that way too? Boo on airbrushed logos. ” -UKboogie

“ If you're going to airbrush out the team logo, why not slap the Dorman's Cheese logo in it's place? ” -DanD

Set: 2006 Justifiable - Autographs (Rate)

Card: #JF-33 Chris Robinson

“ Are these licensed? Or just made without a license like Sage, Broder, etc.? Not a bad design overall. I like the backdrop for the autograph, presumably a sticker. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Well here is a perfect example for the worst signature thread that has been all over the forum boards for the past week! Admin, I think this is coincidence list worthy! ” -rmpaq5

“ An autograph card for the card of the day. Don't see that very often. Didn't know Just was still producing in 2006. ” -CluelessJoe

“ Very weak attempt by Just on this one. ” -carthage44

“ glad to see an auto pop up on RCOTD, wouldn't mind seeing more, although not a fan of sticker autos ” -mbarlow092

“ Nice signature......I guess they have stopped teaching cursive writing. ” -NJDevils

“ OH an on sticker autograph card. Have we had an autograph card appear in the card of the day before? OR rather appear in recent months? I'm sure someone with super OCD for the RotD stats has been tracking that sort of thing. As for the card they really should have put the "city" (since it is an unlicensed card) Interesting even though he was drafted by the Tigers (and earlier by the Mets but didn't sign) he was traded from Tigers to Cubs, then free agent picked up by Rangers, released signed by Orioles then traded to Padres whom he made his debut for in Sept 2013 played through that month and his major league career was basically Sept 2013. ” -captkirk42

“ It's not cool to use the same photo for the front and the back. -It's even worse with this card because the same photo is also used twice on the front. Boooo. ” -Doe MG

“ Unjustifiable use of natural resources. ” -Sportzcommish

“ Very ho hum for an auto card. ” -muskie027

Set: 1933-34 World Wide Gum Ice Kings V357 (Rate)

Card: #3 Aurel Joliat

“ Whoah. Great card! Weird how they colorized his head but not anything else. I hope someday I can add this set to my collection, but I doubt I could afford a hall of famer from the 30s. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Hmm, so hockey existed prior to Stan Mikita? That's the extent of my limited hockey knowledge. ” -Sportzcommish

“ Nice , classic card . Hopefully someday I'll have one. ” -uncaian

“ Nice vintage! ” -CluelessJoe

“ For a 1930's card, this is in great shape! ” -carthage44

“ "Non-standard" size and all...awesome! ” -bkklaos

“ whao, mega vintage card, I like it, I want it, one of my PC players ” -mbarlow092

“ A real piece of history. Beautiful ” -NJDevils

“ Very nice vintage Hockey. Man I really wish the Capitals were founded back then not 1974. ” -captkirk42

“ You have to like the simplicity of these vintage cards. ” -kirkscards

“ Nice clean vintage card. I love that he started playing professional hockey after suffering a football injury. ” -dilemma19

“ Awesome card!!! ” -cjjt

“ Absolutely wonderful time and timely with the NHL Playoffs. Love how the logo is the same, but odd seeing the Habs in these colors. Can't say I am a Habs fan, love my Sabres, but they are the Yankees of Hockey and this vintage card is great! ” -muskie027

“ Looks like a Goudey. ” -vrooomed

Set: 2014 Choice Connecticut Tigers (Rate)

Card: #6 Rashad Brown

“ Keeping up with the big boys. This is an attractive overall card with good use of angles on front and back. ” -Sportzcommish

“ Choice...the most "meh" card brand ever. ” -DarkSide830

“ I really like this design, especially for a minor league issue. It helps that the photo is a great action shot. ” -rmpaq5

“ Very nice Milb card. It has a nice retro look nice front design and nice back design. Like it. ” -captkirk42

“ The like the logo as the reverse C instead of the Detroit Tigers D. ” -carthage44

“ i see what you did with that logo. and i like it ” -Thunderfoot

“ Really nice for a minor league card. I wish they would put a little more effort than black and white on the back though. ” -muskie027
