Set: 1992 Classic Best (Rate)

Card: #358 Jason Pruitt



“ Pruitt was drafted in the 1st round (30th overall) by the Kansas City Royals. He only played two minor league seasons never getting higher than A ball. Career minor league stats: 9 Wins, 16 Losses, 5.03 ERA, 97 Walks and 105 Strikeouts. He tried to revitalize his career in 1995 by playing with the Independent Amarillo Dillas and changed positions moving to DH/1B. He played in only 14 games batting .227 AVG, 0 HR, 4 RBI and a stolen base. ” -carthage44

“ This basically sums up the crap the early 90's put out. Did this man even make it into the majors? ” -KBrun20

“ A Sandwich pick? I'd pick grilled cheese. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ The Appleton Foxes are now the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers, which is a much dumber name. I take it that 1992 was the first year the card designer got QuarkXPress a n d l e a r n e d t o a d j u s t t h e k e r n i n g of his type. ” -revnorb

“ "Selected as sandwich" What a load of bologna. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ Could it be that this card was the highlight of Mr. Pruitt's career? ” -jackal726

“ Nice baby blue roads for a Royals affiliate. ” -jlaz10

Set: 1987 Topps - Glossy All-Stars (Rate)

Card: #11 Fernando Valenzuela



“ Valenzuela played from 1980-1997 with the Dodgers, Angels, Orioles, Phillies, Padres and Cardinals. Career Stats: 173 Wins, 153 Losses, 3.54 ERA and 2,074 Strikeouts. He was a 6x All-Star, won the NL Rookie of the Year and the Cy Young Award in 1981, won a Gold Glove in 1986, 2x Silver Slugger and pitched a no-hitter in 1990. He has served as a coach for Team Mexico during the last three World Baseball Classic's. ” -carthage44

“ Fernando certainly knew how to pose. ” -NJDevils

“ I believe these came in rack packs. I thought they were very cool and different as a kid. A lot of the ones I had were in horrible shape though. ” -suomibear8

“ All-Star, All-Rookie or Olympic Team sets are nice. This card looks like a communist propaganda poster. The way he is "looking into the bright future" with his line of vision slightly upward. ” -xv3thekid

“ Great card... better player. Im not into baseball...AT ALL, but my old man was a Dodgers fan so we watched the Dodgers. Thanks for the memories TCDB. ” -SSG Temple

“ Very interesting design on the collar of that jacket. ” -jlaz10

“ One per rack pack. The ancient "insert". And boy was he good in the 1980s! ” -vrooomed

Set: 1988 Pacific Legends I (Rate)

Card: #55 Duke Snider



“ The front design is good, but the back design is really interesting. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Snider played from 1947-1964 with the Dodgers, Mets and Giants. Career Stats: .295 Average, 407 Home Runs and 1,333 RBI. He was an 8x All-Star, won two World Series (1955 and 1959) and was voted to the Hall of Fame on his eleventh ballot in 1980. He died on February 27, 2011 at the age of 84. ” -carthage44

“ My wife is Thai, but we agreed our kids would have Anglo-Saxon names, so we ordered books and found names we liked together. Duke was one we chose (as the two famous people that jump out at me are John Wayne - The "Duke" and this fella). Thus, my son is the lone Duke in the family. I like also that it means "leader"...a dad can only hope! ” -bkklaos

“ Ah, that Dodgers script. ” -jlaz10

Set: 2008 Press Pass Legends - Blue (Rate)

Card: #51 Jimmie Johnson



“ I missed the 2008 Legends set totally- 2008 was a bad year for me, I was pretty much away from the hobby totally- I only got one new card documented in that year (where I wrote down the day I got it) and I am not sure if I got even 20 new cards that year at all. Knowing Press Pass, the blue foil parallel is either a serially numbered hobby parallel, or a retail parallel. I don't see any serially numbering on this scan, so it's probably the latter. During 2008 Jimmie was in the middle of his record setting 5 consecutive championships, which saw him win the Championship from 2006-2010. He won again last year. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Not much to say uni-wise, it's NASCAR. ” -jlaz10

“ I kind of wish the images were swapped. I'd rather see a bigger picture of the car. ” -jackal726

Set: 1991 Donruss (Rate)

Card: #407 Kevin Mitchell



“ A pre cursor of what was to come for the "juiced" age. ” -addysdaddy

“ Interesting background...very green. It doesn't get much more "Early 90s" than this (but that's a good thing) ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Nice thick sleeve striping. ” -jlaz10

“ Mitchell came to San Francisco in a trade involving at least six players, and a cat to be decapitated later. ” -UNC_Samurai

Set: 1997 Pinnacle (Rate)

Card: #43 Rafael Palmeiro



“ Wag that finger ” -Young Kilo

“ When his card comes up, the computer should play a sound - much like the default tone on Android phones that goes "Droid", except it should say "Roids". And now, he's got to be the highest HR hitter to get too few votes to stay on the HOF ballot. As for the design, I can finally see what's in the gold portion on the front. Nice scan. ” -vrooomed

“ Palmeiro was drafted in the 1st round (22nd overall) by the Chicago Cubs during the 1985 MLB Draft. He played from 1986-2005 with the Cubs, Rangers (two separate times) and Orioles (two separate times). Career stats: .288 Average, 3,020 hits, 569 Home runs and 1,835 RBI. He was a 4x All-Star, 3x Gold Glover and 2x Silver Slugger. Despite his lofty stats, he is not in the Hall of Fame because he has tested positive for steroids. Palmerio was eligible for the Hall of Fame in 2011 but only received 11% of the necessary 75% of the votes to get into the Hall. During the 2014 Hall voting, he received only 4.4% of the votes which now drops him off the ballot because he fell under 5%. ” -carthage44

“ I like the design, although I'm not sure why all those other names are on the bottom. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Another of the infamous HR forgerers. ” -NJdevils

“ He was never on this baseball card. Period! ” -UNC_Samurai

“ I had almost forgotten how hard he held on to that mullet ” -jackal726

“ Steroids. ” -jlaz10

Set: 1969 Atlanta Braves 8x10 Photocards (Rate)

Card: #11 Larry Maxie



“ Maxie only appeared in two career games during the 1969 season with the Atlanta Braves. Career Stats: 0-0, 3.00 ERA, one walk, one hit by pitch, two wild pitches and one strikeout. He later became a scout for the Cubs, White Sox, Phillies and Blue Jays. ” -carthage44

“ I didn't know the Braves wore pinstripes. ” -duaned99

“ Dude played in two games. He couldn't even get the cup-of-coffee notoriety. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ I have no idea what this set is, or how it came about, but I wish the teams would do sets like this for promotions more often. I'd much rather have this than a BJ Upton bobble head. ” -jackal726

“ He looks blinded by the light of the Age of Aquarius. ” -revnorb

“ Braves pinstripes! ” -jlaz10

“ Without stats on the back, I really have no use for these. ” -NJDevils

Set: 2010 Score (Rate)

Card: #70 Josh Cribbs



“ Interesting design. Nice picture and clean. Like the fact that unlike some other cards, you know who the player being featured is because he is the only one on the card. I think this might be the first time I have ever seen a player's position as RS (Right Safety). Nice back. ” -yokonashiwa

“ Cribbs was undrafted in 2005 out of Kent State. He signed as an undrafted free agent with the Cleveland Browns. He played with the Browns from 2005-2012, spent preseason of 2013 with the Raiders but was cut before the season started but signed with the Jets in October of 2013. Career: 109 receptions, 1,167 yards, 12,755 return yards and 20 total touchdowns. He is a 3x Pro Bowler, 2x All-Pro, and holds 3 NFL records for most career kickoff returns for TDs (8, tied w/Leon Washington), two kickoff return TDs of 100 yards or more in a single game (tied w/Ted Ginn Jr.) and most kickoff return TDs in a single game (2, tied w/9 others). ” -carthage44

“ One word for this card design...Yuck ” -addysdaddy

“ I like the effort, but there just seems like a lot of wasted space here. Also, what the heck is RS, Return Specialist? That's a position now? I can't wait to see the next "3rd Down Back in Passing Situations" card! ” -jackal726

“ The photo is a nice shot, the card around it is pretty darn bad. "RS", return specialist? just a guess as I have never seen a card from this set before. "RS", really sloppy? ” -NJDevils

“ The Browns, the way they should be. ” -jlaz10

“ This card looks like somebody threw up. ” -switzr1

Set: 2012-13 Panini Megacracks (Rate)

Card: #188 Fabio Coentrao



“ The hair is ALIVE! ” -carthage44

“ Look at that hair ” -Young Kilo

“ I'm assuming Megacracks in Europe wouldn't have the same connotations as it might in the USA, with crack, of course, being a highly illegal drug. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Glad to see Rod Stewert's hairdo alive and well ” -jackal726

“ Good player. Mourinho used him everywhere he wasn't supposed to. He is best at left back or as left midfielder to take advantage of his speed. Unfortunately, Mourinho put him as central defender or defensive midfielder. He is one of those players that would accel on a second tier world class team (Valencia, Spurs, Dortmund, Benfica, PSG, Lazio for example), but he went for the big bucks and is now relegated to the bench on Madrid. ” -deporcoruña

“ Quite a difference between his headshot and action pictures. ” -jlaz10

“ Very unfortunate photo. He looks like a Megacrackhead. ” -UNC_Samurai

Set: 1986 Topps (Rate)

Card: #613 Roy Smalley



“ Roy Smalley III played from 1975 through 1987 with the Rangers, Twins (twice), Yankees and White Sox. Career: .257 average, 163 home runs and 694 RBI. He was named an All-Star in 1979 while with the Twins and won a World Series ring with the Twins in his final Major League season (1987). His father, Roy Smalley Jr. played in the Majors from 1948-1958 with the Cubs, Braves and Phillies. ” -carthage44

“ 1984: Yankees/White Sox? He was traded for Doug Drabek. So the trade involved a Cy Young winner for a clutch World Series Game 1 pinch-hitting double...just not with either team involved in the trade. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ Pretty decent set. Only problem was the off center cuts that were made. I have 100s of cards from this set that are so off center they are basically trash. Thanks Topps ” -addysdaddy

“ Reminds me of the poor term papers I handed in when I waited until the last minute. This designer must have done the same. ” -NJDevils
