Set: 1990 Star Miami Miracle II (Rate)

Card: #30 Office Personnel

“ Going by the clothes and hairdos, I did not need the title to peg this as a 1990 card. ” -rmpaq5

“ It's nice that behind the scene folks get some cred , typical '90's a card for everything. ” -uncaian

“ Wow, gotta love team sets that include the whole team. This is doing team sets right. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Oh my......lol. For some reason this reminds me of Miami Vice. ” -RoyalChief

“ This card must have been a HOT find! ” -carthage44

“ 15 minutes of fame. Good for them. Who are we to rain on their parade? ” -cjjt

“ Hey look, it's a miracle we made it on a baseball card! Sorry that's all I got. ” -Doc Floyd

“ Want it! ” -dilemma19

“ Wow! All sorts of stuff to say about this card. Just love seeing the Star Co cards featured. ” -vrooomed

“ Talk about your randomness of random card of the day. The front office staff of a minor league baseball team from 26 years ago. ” -captkirk42

“ Not something I'd collect, but....hey...they are forever immortalized on a trading card. ” -Kaline6

“ I love it! So random. I wonder if any of them were ever asked for autographs. ” -armac

“ Is this for real? There is not enough space to write all the travesties I am looking at. ” -muskie027

Set: 2004 Press Pass Stealth (Rate)

Card: #5 Dale Jarrett's Car

“ Wow this is confusing, a stock car driving over a baseball home plate? Very awkward card design. ” -Julius

“ Great card. Nice perspective shot even if it is a studio photo and not an action shot. I complain about Press Pass often but I have no problem with this set. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ This just an UGLY card !! YUCK!! Not even the Ford can save it. ” -uncaian

“ Cool stickers as lights, LOL! ” -carthage44

“ Go fast, turn left, repeat. Congratulations! You're now a NASCAR driver. ” -dilemma19

“ Not real big on racing cards, but I like this one, even with the little goofy pics of Jarrett in the upper right hand corner. Might be because I got such great use out of every Taurus I ever owned. ” -Doc Floyd

“ What am I looking at? Oh racing card. I think Billy is right about how Press Pass ruined racing cards when they had the exclusive for them. At least this one shows the car. I can't see from the scan is Mr. Jarrett's name in foil on that foil strip at the bottom? ” -captkirk42

Set: 1990 Fleer (Rate)

Card: #149 Roberto Alomar

“ Excellent scan. Nice solid design. I like it! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ One of the many early 90s sets I STILL need to complete. Someday, someday. ” -captkirk42

“ Acid flashback! ” -carthage44

“ With only two years of major league experience under his belt, Robbie's already tracking toward the Hall of Fame. Unremarkable card overall, though I apparently always overlooked the "vital signs" section on the back. Fleer with SABR data before it was cool. ” -dilemma19

“ I've got a soft spot for 1990 released sets. ” -wax_house

“ Unbelievably, not even close to the worst card design of 1990. These were just uninspiring - Topps, Score, Bowman, and (especially) Donruss were much worse. ” -pistonfan

“ I have a soft spot for Fleer. I loved the debut, and even liked the 1982 set, despite the fuzzy photos. However, by 1990, there was no excuse for this lame of a set. They did have some stiff competition from Donruss and even Topps for worst design, but Fleer wins big. And to top it off, open a few packs of these and stack the cards together - look at the uneven cuts. I could've had a Kindergarten class with safety scissors do a better quality control job. For a 10th effort, this was absolutely pathetic. At least they didn't have yellow borders... ” -vrooomed

Set: 1994 Upper Deck (Rate)

Card: #40 Albert Belle

“ He kinda looks like The Flash running with the world distorted behind him due to his incredible speed! ” -rmpaq5

“ Nice fluffy clouds! Was this the first year Albert ceased to be Joey? ” -dilemma19

“ ACK! The 1994 UD set was OK a bit strange, but still OK. This "Fantasy Team" sub-set, However, Doesn't really fit at all. ” -captkirk42

“ What a great cheater he was. ” -carthage44

“ The dreaded subset card. Never have liked them, just doesn't make sense unless it's an All-Star, League Leader, or some kind of season or career high-light. Decent looking card, would have been better without the sky fade to the right though, back I suppose would suit the subject of Fantasy Teams. Belle was a solid enough player with good numbers for the amount of time he played, good enough fielder who was only wasted in the bum slot 222 games. Seeing DH listed beside OF for his position would be enough for me to get rid of the card, unless I needed it for the complete set. ” -Doc Floyd

“ Must have been taken in Colorado as the dugout seems to be on the edge of a mountain top. ” -NJDevils

“ "...And he stole the lightning from the sky, then returned to Earth to obliterate the poor ball." ” -DarkSide830

Set: 2000 Topps - MVP Promotion (Rate)

Card: #197 Jeff Zimmerman

“ The future of all mankind depends on Jeff Zimmerman winning MVP Of The Week, as designated by Topps. I don't like our chances... ” -switzr1

“ Good scan...these were one per box in the NBA set so not really an easy set to put together. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ It's about time that a Topps MVP Promotion card gets some love! When are you going to finish the set, Jack? ” -Dave Sosidka

“ Cool card if you win the sweepstakes. ” -carthage44

“ Not a huge fan of the 2000 Topps to begin with don't get me started on the foil lettering. Not a fan of making a contest promo card look like a regular card of the set. Sample promo cards promoting the set OK yes make them look like a base card, but a promo for a give-away should look different. ” -captkirk42

“ This is one of the better looking redemption cards I have seen. Like the base design, like the carried over redemption design Definitely a far cry from the T-shirt offers of the late 80s ” -FuriousGeorge

“ I love MVP Promotion cards! I'm trying to collect every Baseball & Football MVP card ever issued. They're not easy to find as there were only 100 of each made, but it's the thrill of the hunt I enjoy. I have almost 85% of them. ” -Jack Webster

Set: 1992 Fleer Disney Collector Series 2 (Rate)

Card: #43 A: "The Mail Pilot"

“ Classic cartoons are the best. Current cartoons for the most part are terrible. I hate when people say that all modern stuff stinks but in the case it's true. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ What form of "Enhanced Interrogation Technique" is that going on on the back? ” -rmpaq5

“ Who is being strangled on the back? ” -carthage44

“ Love non-sport, love Disney. Not to thrilled about this style of two-sided story telling. Like the early 1990s Looney Tunes "Comic Ball" series where you need the full set (or at least a good run of several cards in a row) to get the full story. ” -captkirk42

“ That old-timey cartoons are so deeply creepy, as a kid I was really afraid of them. ” -Thomas_Kava

Set: 2013-14 Topps Premier League Match Attax (Rate)

Card: #250 Pablo Daniel Osvaldo

“ Isn't this the third playing card to come up this week from the same sport? ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Attax might be the worst set ever made. ” -carthage44

“ These should be banned for life from the RCOTD ” -NJdevils

“ Ooh, I saw these on my trip to Ireland last Summer. ” -DarkSide830

“ Another CCG soccer card. Of course Topps Attax had to worm its way into the random card of the day pile again. OK the back of this one has too much junk on it for its function. ” -captkirk42

“ Attackxzcxck! ” -dilemma19

Set: 2004 Upper Deck Legends (Rate)

Card: #17 Chad Johnson

“ I don't know if the NFL set was constructed like the NBA set, but it really missed the mark, in my opinion. I would rather they have given us a larger set instead of two sets with the same design with different numbers (and different card stock). I also don't like when they turn color photos into black and white, which is what they did for the legends portion of the set. On the other hand, I like getting a set specifically for legends, instead of having them mixed into the main sets like Panini does. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Could have been a Hall of Famer had he not been so crazy. ” -carthage44

“ That left side font looks canned to me but over all it is a nice design. ” -koloth42

“ The whole changing your name to your number in Spanish struck me as weird! Lots of talent, but the ego got in the way in this case, I think!? Not sure I'd include him in the "Legends" category! ” -bkklaos

“ Parka in the front photo is pretty cool, but both the "ocho" and "cinco" are featured prominently on the back. The "scrambled pay TV" borders around said back photo are confusing and unnecessary. ” -dilemma19

“ I like this design my only problem with either side is the vertical writing. Chad Johnson before he started changing his name around. I think he eventually changed it back to Chad. ” -captkirk42

“ I really wish there was some sort of outline on how to define what a legend is... ” -SFC Temple

“ As a Browns fan, my favorite Chad Johnson memory is of him mailing bottles of Pepto Bismol to the Browns DBs before they were to play in 2004. The joke turned out to be on him as the Browns held him to 37 receiving yards, and won the game. I liked his sense of humor, and the way he interacted with fans on his social media accounts. ” -armac

“ Does a guy who at this point (according to the back stats) has 16 TDs really need to be identified as an NFL Legend? ” -rmpaq5

“ Oh yeah, got us a real legend there. Sure. ” -NJdevils

“ Child, please! ” -cckeith

“ Moron who changed his named to an incorrect translation of his uniform number. Not a fan. At all. And I may have missed his entire career during my collecting sabbatical. Not sure I own any cards of him. ” -switzr1

Set: 2001 Wizards Football Champions Premier League 2001-2002 (Rate)

Card: #187 Noel Whelan

“ He's so fast he's tearing the photo! Is that a phone number on the left side? I'd like to call Mr. Whelan sometime. Maybe he can teach me to be fast... ” -dilemma19

“ "Soccer.....that's like football without pads right?" - Robin Williams ” -RoyalChief

“ It's Futbol not Football. Get it right! ” -carthage44

“ OOH looks like another random CCG card similar to Topps Attax. Soccer this time. For this design it might have been fun for the corners to be rounded like the backs black border has. Fun Card. ” -captkirk42

“ "Wizards Football", huh? When does the Wizard change this card from junk to something decent? ” -NJdevils

“ I know it is a gaming card (I assume actually due to the back and the "stats" on the side...but man that is a very busy distracting front. ” -rmpaq5
