Random Card of the Day


Saturday, August 6, 2016

Set: 1990-91 Pro Set English League (Rate)

Card: #23 David Platt



“ An actual card! Nicely designed and a good photo, if I was into this sport I would like this set a lot. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I had one relative try to repay a debt to another relative with a box of these in lieu of cash. He justified it by claiming that I had said these cards were valuable. They could be had at Big Lots for $3 a box. Since that time, I've only been able to think of him when I see a card from this set. ” -switzr1

“ Wow a real Soccer card and not one of those weird Topps Attax game cards. Looks nice OK Team name and logo would be GREAT on the front. As I'm not familiar with soccer (football, fotball) that sort of thing would help.Back looks a bit plain. Some player career stats would be nice. ” -captkirk42

“ Not a bad looking card (especially for Soccer) wish Pro Set had been better managed .They really did have some nice card sets. ” -uncaian

“ One of those rare soccer cards that ISN'T a card game. But still leaves a little to be desired. A team would be nice on the front. The vertical nameplate gets in the way. The back could do with career stats. ” -C2Cigars

“ I like the set, though I should finish looking for the variations and complete the set. ” -jupiterhill

“ Loved Pro Set football (not futbol) cards. ” -carthage44

“ This is a good looking soccer card, but how about club name on the front and some stats on the back? ” -rmpaq5

“ Pretty good, as far as soccer goes. Is dude doing a MJ imitation? ” -Doc Floyd

“ Good ad for the copier company. Get used to it basketball fans. I guess they would never use throwback jerseys unless mita paid for it. ” -NJDevils

“ Hey, a "real" soccer card. Not a game one. I don't know soccer well enough to know if "stats" are needed to make a "good" card, but I think ProSet did a very nice job on this one. ” -vrooomed

“ Oh man. Pro Set, non-major sport. Hoo boy. ” -wax_house

Set: 2006 Upper Deck (Rate)

Card: #838 Kameron Loe



“ Wow, two former Mariners in a row. Neither worth talking about! ” -ketchupman36

“ Solid, less foil would be an improvement, but overall solid. ” -rmpaq5

“ Cool photo ” -wax_house

“ A decent looking card, though I'm a sucker for borderless fronts. Now I need to go solve the mystery: Did Kameron Loe end up pitching more than 100 innings in the majors??? ” -dilemma19

“ UGHTer Deck and its love of foil. OK wish the full player name was easy to read. Nice they highlight the last name only confusing when a team has two players with same last name. Team name would be nice, got the team logo, but foiled UGH. On to the back... All around OK the way things should be except card number should be bigger and closer to one of the corners for sorting purposes. ” -captkirk42

“ Not bad for UD, no mistaking it's from them that's for sure. Hope that's an update card, being such a high number. ” -Doc Floyd

“ Honestly, not a big fan of covered faces, UNLESS it is a well-known player or famous situation. Color is good, but a little hard to read the name. Not made for us fellas with, bi-focals. ” -Jambarrett

“ In March of 2016 while in the White Sox minor leagues got busted and given an 80 game suspension after testing positive for a banned substance. Once broke his throwing hand during an in game brawl at Triple A. Google is amazing. ” -Mitch

Set: 1996 Topps (Rate)

Card: #38 Tim Belcher



“ Woo Mariners! Boo being a player not worth remembering. He played only 1 season with the M's and finished with a 10-12 record. Pitched poorly in the post-season too, losing both games he started. ” -ketchupman36

“ I like he back, and I would like the front if the smaller photo was different from the main photo. To me, repeating a photo on the same card is useless. Put the position there instead. ” -vrooomed

“ Everything a card should be. Fantastic design. ” -Doc Floyd

“ This is *totally* a mid-90's card design. Belcher strikes me as one of the most low-key #1 picks of all time. ” -dilemma19

“ Overall nice design. I don't care for the little face or foiled name on the front. Not a fan of additional photos on the back. I'm one who wants stats and bio info on the back. ” -C2Cigars

“ The smallest Topps set since 1957. Don't forget about the Mantle commemorative set and retired card. ” -RoundtheDiamond87

“ Press box photo shot. ” -carthage44

“ UGh Mid 1990s. Not thrilled with the 1996 Topps. Foil name can't read, team name should be there somewhere (other than his jersey not all photos are full body with home unis) Back should lose the picture make the stats chart easier to read. Sadly the 1990s were the beginning of Topps using a thinner card stock and bleaching the card stock pure white, so the feel of cards was changed as well as the looks. ” -captkirk42

“ Never knew he was a Mariner. ” -DarkSide830

“ Very middle-of-the-road deisgn. Not garish but not plain. The back is a little too busy. ” -realrealsoft

Set: 2010 Panini Prestige (Rate)

Card: #51 Mohamed Massaquoi



“ Panini was getting back into the game at this time and this set looked like they rushed it. ” -carthage44

“ Alright, for Panini. Really just makes me miss Topps FB even more. ” -Doc Floyd

“ Cool vignette effect. It's like he's standing in a cloud! Everything's there, but I wonder what Panini would ditch first for a player with more than one year of stats. ” -dilemma19

“ Using the same photo on both sides is just the worst. ” -wax_house

“ I can't find any redeeming qualities of this card design. ” -C2Cigars

“ What are they doing with the text at a weird angle? Team name a bit big, but at least it is there. Back a different photo for the head shot would be fine. Stats OK for this guys rookie year, for vet cards they would need full career stats. ” -captkirk42

“ Typical Panini. Not a bad design but not all that memorable. A similar design was used in the NBA. I think the player's name should be more front and center than the team name. ” -Billy Kingsley

Set: 2010 Topps Match Attax South Africa World Cup (Rate)

Card: #92 Rene Adler



“ Here we go! I wondered how long it would be before we saw some more Soccer game cards ” -SFC Temple

“ I think I can safely say Attax is the worst set ever made. ” -carthage44

“ Yes it is another soccer gaming card...but unlike most this set has a bit more traditional feel on the front as the lay out of the stats incorporate well into the card design. The back is...well it is a gaming card. ” -rmpaq5

“ The goalkeeper has an attack rating of only 4. Pathetic! ” -dilemma19

“ Oh look a soccer Topps Attax card. Front is interesting. Back hey I thought the had to all look alike since it is a card game (CCG) Maybe for Attax games things are a bit different. ” -captkirk42

“ Yes! Soccer game card! I can't wait to read all the favorable comments about this card. I definitely like it because Herr Adler is the goalkeeper for my favorite Bundesliga team, Hamburger! ” -switzr1

“ To paraphrase Will Rogers, "I've never met a Topps Match Attax I liked." ” -C2Cigars

Set: 2002 Donruss Super Estrellas (Rate)

Card: #40 Mike Sweeney



“ Never seen this one, but I like it. Guess a new card to add to my want list. ” -jupiterhill

“ Good looking set. I would collect these ” -switzr1

“ Pretty nice design wise. Looks more 1990s than 2002 (that's a compliment coming from me). I have no idea what it says but so what ? ” -Billy Kingsley

“ He was a solid player. Killed the White Sox. ” -carthage44

“ I don't think I have any Spanish cards in my collection, but not very excited to add if my only options are like this one. ” -dilemma19

“ I really like this layout. Great action shot with the team logo. Foil a bit hard on the eyes. Back is solid. I prefer more stats and bigger number, but I love narratives ” -SFC Temple

“ OK design. Important stuff can be read, don't like the foil logos but can live with them. Would be nice to see the full team name with this set as it is a Spanish edition.Back is OK but needs full stats not just one year, but *sigh* it is an early 2000s card so 1 year stats are the norm there. ” -captkirk42

“ statistics are incomplete ” -RoundtheDiamond87

Set: 1987 O-Pee-Chee (Rate)

Card: #68 Glenn Hubbard



“ OH Cool an OPC card. Nice "almost" vintage. (in some peoples books it is now vintage) Glad to see it is one of the Originals and not a more recent retro tribute. ” -captkirk42

“ Good player - GREAT set. Love the whiter backs than the Topps counterparts. ” -vrooomed

“ I like this design. Have since the first time I saw one. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Ok maybe I'm partial being from Canada, but the O-Pee-Chee backs always brighter and easier to read than Topps. ” -rmpaq5

“ Awesome. It's 1987, before packs started getting expensive. It's OPC. And it's Glenn Hubbard, whose 1984 Fleer card is my favorite card ever. Can't go wrong with this one. ” -switzr1

“ The OPC branding, and white card stock do wonders for this set for some reason. Turns an otherwise bland Topps set into a pretty decent one. Think it's the wood-grain look that bothers me. ” -Doc Floyd

“ Needs more boa. ” -volbox

Set: 2001 Topps Gold Label Class 1 (Rate)

Card: #110 Tim Hudson



“ Love the Gold Labels. Clean look and the foil on this scan (as with most of them because of the extra shiny stock) don't do it justice. ” -rmpaq5

“ For a Gold Label set this isn't as nice as they usually are. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Very bland. ” -carthage44

“ Another set made worse by foil. Hudson is a guy I know by sight, but I don't like having to flip a card over to know who the player is. And the glow around him makes him look like a dead Jedi. ” -switzr1

“ Looks about like a bootleg, Gold label sure was some ugly stuff most of the time. ” -Doc Floyd

“ Foil lettering that is all I'll say. ” -captkirk42

Set: 1990 CMC (Rate)

Card: #641 Pete Dalena



“ I like the yellow and green borders. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Looks like the team was owned by Molson. The fronts would look much better without the white border. The back is nice except for the oversized PCL logo. Overall, a nice design. The 1989 stat line is the sum total of his major league career. ” -C2Cigars

“ Looks like he just got slamming a Molson Canadian ” -SFC Temple

“ Why do so many prospect cards seem to depict 30 year-old non-prospects? ” -DarkSide830

“ I have a ton of these cards, but dislike sorting them due to the tiny card numbers hiding down in the copyright line. I believe this is now the last remaining MLB-affiliated minor league team in Canada :( ” -dilemma19

“ Nice and simple Minor League Card. Wish the card makers would go back to this type of thing. I don't need all the foil and shinny surfaces on pristine cardboard. I prefer the simple "flat" non-shine on raw unbleached cardboard. OK the occasional bleached cardboard is fine also. ” -captkirk42

“ Go White Sox minor league teams!!! ” -carthage44

“ I recognize this from my youth. Not sure what ever happened to these minor league cards. Wonder if I still have them.I actually like the design. Nice and colorful. ” -Mitch

“ Now that is one colourful card. ” -rmpaq5

“ Certainly colorful, not bad though, especially for 1990. ” -Doc Floyd

Set: 1996 Select (Rate)

Card: #90 Andre Coleman



“ I really like the front but the back does not work for me at all. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ It's nice, but would be awesome if the card surface itself was pebbled like a football. I like the "video wall" image on the back, though it results in the stats and biographical information being illegibly small. ” -dilemma19

“ Tough to read front with no team name or logo. I personally don't like the horizontal back/number because it makes it tougher to sort. Why is the back photo cubed? ” -SFC Temple

“ It's OK, but something about that back just ruins it for me. ” -Doc Floyd

“ Kind of like this design. Can't read a thing on the front except "Select 96" and part of "Coleman". Better legible text would be nice team name, logo and player position Please. Back I like the look but can't read whatever is on the right, his bio? ” -captkirk42

“ Pinnacle did a great job with this set. ” -carthage44
