Random Card of the Day

Set: 1993 Horse Star Jockey Cards (Rate)

Card: #98 Sam Maple

“ It was a card from this set that allowed me to contribute something in every category here...I bought the card for the sole purpose of posting it here. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Wow. A jockey card. Talk about random! Interesting idea with the mirror photo - let's us see the awesome pink flamingo on his back. ” -olerud363

“ Now this is cool.....something different. Nothing special about the card itself, but it is a neat genre. ” -tbshaw

“ Sounds like a Jockey name. ” -carthage44

“ I had a bunch of these cards, have no idea where I got them from. My boys (ages 6 and 9) have them now, and do all the fun destructive stuff that 6 and 9 year olds do with trading cards. ” -Brimose

“ Wow. From the flamingo, to the artistic mirror shot, to the little cartoon horse in the corner, to the clean back with statistics, to the very fact that this is a jockey card, I, I, like it! I shouldn't. Really, I should loathe it. But I don't. ” -Vvvergeer

“ OH good it is a Horse Racing Jockey card. At first I thought it was some strange Minor League card of almost any other sport with someone trying on a Jockey's Uniform. Nice simple design, but looks too much like it should be Minor League Baseball or possibly Soccer than it does Horse Racing. Oh its Star that is why it looks like a Minor League set Star specialized in doing the team sets, and often League sets for the Minor League Baseball. ” -captkirk42

“ Surely he didn't win $26 million... ” -DarkSide830

“ Now this is truly random!! Kinda cool, don't want to get any, but cool none the less. ” -rmpaq5

“ This is the first time I have seen a jockey card. ” -kirkscards

Set: 1997 Finest - Embossed (Rate)

Card: #136 Marcus Allen

“ Awesome. The embossed Finest cards were a one year only partial parallel in the NBA set, but they were cool. I wasn't aware they existed in other sports but just as cool looking! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Finest had some pretty fine inserts and parallels in the 90's! ” -olerud363

“ I wouldn't say Marcus Allen was a bulldozing running back. He was more of a speed/finesse back. ” -carthage44

“ Another example of Topps Finest being NOT Finest. Maybe in hand this doesn't look as dark. Back is a bit boring. ” -captkirk42

“ Rough scan, but these cards are nice in hand. As for Allen, being a Chiefs fan, I loved seeing him in red after so many years in ugly silver and black! ” -Brimose

“ I LOVE this design! Topps Finest in the mid-90s was one product I really loved because of how it looked compared to other products. It looked high-end. This particular card with Marcus Allen is nice too because of the action scene. There may be more refractors with the newer designs, but these "old school" designs I miss. ” -nubala

“ I like it! ” -muskie027

Set: 2006 Donruss Threads - Pro Gridiron Kings Silver Holofoil (Rate)

Card: #PGK-37 Michael Vick

“ Woof. ” -mkaz80

“ He was the most exciting player in the early to mid 2000's. Love watching Vick dominate the league! ” -carthage44

“ Piece of garbage individual, card design is ok I guess ” -mbarlow092

“ Those convicted of a violent crime, should not be Card of the Day. I hope this card will be skipped by admin. ” -Doe MG

“ Silver Variant of a pretty nice card. Not super great looking but nice for what it is. ” -captkirk42

“ Bow wow wuf wuf. ” -deporcoruña

“ Now playing in the American Flag Football League. A potential HOF career ruined by a poor decision. Next time just own the dog. As for the card, not bad looking with a nice picture. The cursive font on the back is a little hard to read, but that could just be the scan. ” -yokonashiwa

“ sad ” -cjjt

“ As a dog lover I hold very little value in the worth of this "human being." ” -UKboogie

Set: 2007 Donruss Classics - Sunday's Best Bronze (Rate)

Card: #SB-16 Mark Clayton

“ I like it...for an insert anyway. it sort of looks like it's framed even though I'm guessing it's not. It looks like there might be some embossing going on but having never seen any in person I can't be 100% sure. And nothing with a serial number can ever truly be bad! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ nothing best about this boring bland excuse for a card ” -aussiewayne

“ These sets had so many different color variations (Gold, Silver, Platinum, Bronze). ” -carthage44

“ Ah the year of Donruss Classics Football that got me liking Classics. I go through a love/hate cycle with these "Sunday's Best" inserts. I like them as they are part of the 2007 set, well insert so an addition to the set. Yes they are a bit plain though and designed to feature relics on the side. ” -captkirk42

“ Nothing worse than an insert that was designed expressly for a jersey swatch. The non-jersey parallels look like garbage with the big empty space on the side. Either make them all with jersey pieces or scrap 'em. But don't give us crap like this. ” -mkaz80

“ I like the image but there is a little too much border for me. Donruss very rarely lets me down and the design is more than acceptable. I love the Donruss Classics stamp and the name right under it. It makes it look kind of elegant. ” -nubala

“ ME!!! My scan!!! First one. So proud! I actually dislike the design and couldn't care less about Mark Clayton. ” -cjjt

Set: 1993 Topps - Black Gold (Rate)

Card: #27 Henry Jones

“ These are neat cards. One of the first sets to have holofoil, if not THE first, in all the sports Topps did that year. Right around the same time they introduced regular foil, which I know most hate...I like it as an accent like a player or team name but not when the whole card is. If I followed football I'd be a Bills supporter, for (hopefully!) obvious reasons :) ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Just make it Gold none of this Black Gold stuff. ” -carthage44

“ I really don't like the "gold" anything parallels from the 1990s. 90% of the time they only made the "gold" title letters in gold, or the player's name in gold to differentiate the "gold" version from the regular base version. This appears to be the same sort of thing, with the exception of the "gold" border added, or enhanced from whatever the base version was (excuse me while I checkout the "base" version) ...UGH these weren't even ugly parallels they were an ugly insert set. Double UGH. "Topps Ya Killin' Me" ” -captkirk42

“ The top and bottom borders look ugly, everything else otherwise looks pretty nice. ” -TradingCards964

“ The picture shows intensity and there are nice touches particularly the step over the name banner. But the lack of stats in the back will displease some. ” -Sportzcommish

“ Great little series for Topps b/w 1993-1994. ” -RoundtheDiamond87

“ This is a weak design. Too dark. ” -cjjt

“ All right, a Buffalo Bill! Henry was a heckuva player for a lot of years in WNY. Nice card here. Always liked Topps Black Gold. ” -mkaz80

Set: 2000 Topps - MVP Promotion (Rate)

Card: #385 Travis Taylor

“ If this is like the NBA version it was one per box. I like this design, which is totally new to me? ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Never liked the "Send in" cards. Too much work. ” -carthage44

“ Maybe it should have be a "demotion". ” -NJDevils

“ Too much print on a bad photo; why use a picture where half the player's face is covered? The color combination is bland, too. ” -Sportzcommish

“ Too much printing on the front, a lot of print on the back, but I suppose that's for some giveaway or something. ” -TradingCards964

“ Another very random random card. A contest promo card. Wait #385? Did they make EVERY card from the set one of these Promo cards as well? UGH. Everyday I wonder why I still tolerate the silly things the card makers have been doing for the last almost 30 years or so. ” -captkirk42

“ Big no on this one. From the crappy picture which appears superimposed onto a very unrealistic background, to the ridiculous 2000 Toops stripe, and the 90 million things on the front. I love Topps, I hate this. ” -muskie027

Set: 2016 Topps Bunt - Platinum (Rate)

Card: #25 Bryce Harper

“ This set was super-popular among the blogosphere last year but I am not a fan...just another cut out photo in front of a computer generated background. I do like serially numbered cards, though...you could say I'm addicted to them and would not be exaggerating. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Bunt 2016 was the best product Topps put out that year. They went overboard in the 2017 release with endless parallels (still a good product though). Good design, reminds me of 1996 Circa Boss, I like the big team logos. Only one gripe - the card numbers on the back are minuscule. ” -ShoTime

“ Great player, not a bad card, not a great card. ” -muskie027

“ Bunt is a nice starter set to get kids into collecting, but I must admit, I really liked the set too. Not that Topps needed more sets, but this one was a good addition to their portfolio. ” -jupiterhill

“ Ah, Bunt. And a parallel at that! I know Topps releases ten-zillion baseball sets every year, but Bunt is one of the newer ones I actually like. Cheap to collect, decent design, etc. Honestly, this should take the place of Opening Day, which is essentially useless minus the neat inserts. ” -mkaz80

“ My fantasy baseball STUD!!! ” -carthage44

“ Can't go wrong with a numbered Bryce Harper Card. ” -TradingCards964

“ I've never seen one of these, Bunt, and am not impressed at all. Might have a number on it but maybe they should have stamped "mediocre" instead. ” -NJDevils

“ I'm guessing this is the PHYSICAL Version of the BUNT card? One of my Homie players for my Homie team. Will I ever have this card myself? Might like to, but probably won't ” -captkirk42

Set: 2016 Donruss (Rate)

Card: #315 Emmanuel Ogbah

“ I really like this Donruss design. they did a better job with football then they did with the NBA or NASCAR sets which used the same design, as the football borders were team colored. All the NBA cards had a brown border and all the NASCAR cards had white. The backs have too much wasted space in my opinion, but at least they are colorful. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ 1990 Donruss baseball is one of my favorite sets. This design almost ruined it for me. ” -olerud363

“ Love the 1990 throwback scheme. I guess I am one of the few that actually like the 1990 set..... ” -tbshaw

“ He looks like he is trying to get out of Cleveland as quickly as possible. Can't say I blame him!! ” -biggiofn7

“ I hate the Panini Rookie Card icon. ” -carthage44

“ Good rookie season. I hope he continues to improve. I like this Donruss football set reminiscent of one of their old baseball sets but with the borders using the team colors. ” -armac

“ When Donruss was really Donruss until the late 1990s or 2004 or whenever it was they "folded" I loved most of their set designs, even the 90 design that is honored in here with the "stars" or "blots" or whatever the dots are supposed to be and stripes. However this design using the 1990 design with added stripes ala 1991? tends to be a bit much. Back is OK but after having card sets that have had full player stats I get a bit annoyed with this one year only designs. ” -captkirk42

“ I love this card. Nothing really wrong with it, I love the classic donruss with the cursive name. ” -TradingCards964

“ I actually like the front of the Donruss cards and surprisingly find myself attracted to the Football and Basketball releases. I just hate those awful Panini backs. Why can't Panini bring back the traditional Donruss back if they brought back the brand name? These Panini backs are not good. ” -muskie027

“ I'm a big fan of this design. The colored borders look excellent ” -ketchupman36

Set: 1989 Little Sun High School Prospects (Rate)

Card: #2 Earl Cunningham

“ Must have been a thrill back then to be in high school and have your own baseball card. Earl doesn't seem too excited though. ” -olerud363

“ Holy Smokes! I expected this to be the one and only card of one Earl Cunningham ever made, but a quick search of his PID and he actually has major release cards from Bowman, OpeeChee, and Topps, thanks to being drafted high, as well as some Minor League stuff. Good for him! As for the card....it's horrible. ” -rmpaq5

“ Handsome young man on a typical low budget product. If I was in high school and that was me on the card, though, this would be a huge deal for me. ” -Sportzcommish

“ I wonder if the photographer told him to strike the "Big man on campus" pose... Strange that he was never promoted past high A-ball, since the Cubs had a black hole in CF through the early 90s, (Doug Dascenzo, Willie Wilson, Tuffy Rhodes). He wasn't tearing it up in the minors, but he wasn't terrible... ” -dilemma19

“ Wow talk about your minor leagues, this is one of those High School exclusive ones. This sort of card would only interest people from that school or from the surrounding area that knew of the school. It reminds me that a few months ago some collector mentioned somewhere (I forget if it was here or another forum or maybe even their blog) about having a card like this of a player who is now a big name star. The story also mentioned something about the high school coach either being given that card, or discovering the card, or giving the card to the player. I forget what the deal was, but it was interesting at the time. ” -captkirk42

“ Never Knew they could do Highschool Baseball cards. The Photo is nice for it's time, The border is a bit trashy, overall 6.7. ” -TradingCards964

“ The 8th overall pick by the Cubs in 1989. He might be the Cubs biggest draft bust as he never made it above high A ball. ” -carthage44

“ I am not a fan of the Gold Border. However, the picture and the green "OF," are solid-looking. ” -nubala

“ Not bad, but could be better. Looks like a big High School kid. I don't remember him as a pro, so I am assuming he never came through. ” -muskie027

Set: 2010 Panini Stickers (Rate)

Card: #7 Pro Bowl Logo

“ As insignificant as the contest itself. ” -Sportzcommish

“ Move along, nothing to see here. ” -rmpaq5

“ Looks like a giant alien egg card. ” -olerud363

“ Did not realize that The Federation , had a team playing in the Pro Bowl ” -uncaian

“ ... ” -DarkSide830

“ I've always thought the Pro Bowl trophy/emblem to be somewhat vulgar in design. ” -mkaz80

“ I can't image that these sell very well. ” -carthage44

“ Nice sticker for those who collect trophy cards. ” -captkirk42

“ Um, yes there was a Pro Bowl in Hawaii in 2011. Apparently overseen by Sauron. I guess this sticker in memorializing that, without telling me anything else at all. Why? ” -Vvvergeer

“ Well Uh, It's a sticker... so. ” -TradingCards964

“ I looked at it and fell asleep. The Pro Bowl logo didn't need a sticker but I kinda understand the purpose of it since it's a Panini sticker that you'll put in the booklet. ” -JimStaub

“ Not high on this. ” -muskie027
