Set: 1971-72 Topps (Rate)

Card: #132 Bill Bridges

“ A classic design...Topps first standard sized NBA set since 1957-58. This set saw the first cards issued for the ABA, although this is not one of them. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Very nice set. Wish I had this one. Back is full of info, and the blue/yellow combination reminds me of the 70 baseball backs. ” -Kaline6

“ not a fan of that team lettering. its like they were doing some beach graffiti ” -tonym

“ That's a lot of fun. ” -wax_house

“ Vintage Hoops. HooooRAH! ” -captkirk42

“ Groovy card, man. I must be trippin' man. Can you dig that far out font?......Whew, sorry, I was having a flashback. Bill just recently died of cancer (25 Sep). RIP Bill. Well, I'm goin' to split now. Keep on Truckin'. ” -C2Cigars

“ Great card. Too bad it was during my hiatus from collecting. No real need for the possessive apostrophe after the Hawks on the card. ” -NJdevils

“ Trippy! ” -carthage44

Set: 1993 Magic the Gathering Beta (Rate)

Card: #223 Samite Healer

“ I need this card for Mondays! ” -domentho

“ The game that keeps nerds off the streets. ” -uncaian

“ I heard this is still popular. Weird!!! ” -carthage44

“ One of the few wise things I've done in my card hoard...er collecting has been to avoid the madness that is Magic The Gathering. For a collector it is an insane thing to attempt. Even for "players" it can be an insane thing to collect. For the players it is all about the power of the card in play, for collectors it would be the rarity of the "rare" cards. ” -captkirk42

“ Arrrrrrgh! ” -Kaline6

“ I work with guys who spend a ton of money on this game. Hmm....I will stick with Baseball and Star Wars instead! ” -Joshua825

Set: 2015 Bowman - Chrome Farm's Finest Mini (Rate)

Card: #FFM-AN Aaron Nola

“ Card should have had a number. I hate it when they don't use numbers. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ It's a jungle out there, and kind of an A-HA video, too. ” -revnorb

“ Irony - this card is available for write up on the same day another Phillies card was the Card of the Day. Sadly, I have neither of them. Started 13 games for MLB's worst team in 2015 and had a 6-2 record. A lot of upside! ” -vrooomed

“ You rarely see current year cards in the "Card of the Day". ” -carthage44

“ Farm's Finest? Another reason many (and myself) dislike Bowman Prospect cards. They are great for your team when you are a team collector but set collectors need to draw the line with all the chromes and minis and yadda yadda extras. ” -captkirk42

Set: 2008 Top Trumps Specials Disney Pixar - The Collection (Rate)

Card: #NNO26 Sally

“ Not real big on the gaming cards but I enjoyed the movie. I saw it on the very last day it was in the theaters. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Well...I like Disney, I like cars, I like cards. I don't care for Disney car cards. ” -Kaline6

“ Whoa, Sally is one cool star. ” -dah15

“ How is this a trading card? Never cared for nor considered card games to be true trading cards. Especially, when the whole "set" comes in a single package. I don't call that a "set" I call it a "deck". ” -C2Cigars

“ I've seen other series of Top Trumps cards but to the best of my knowledge I don't have any (yet). I used to be sort of anti-Trumps cards due to their being similar to other TCGs. Now I am not against them I just haven't made a real decision on any of them. ” -captkirk42

“ She may be a soft-top, but Sally is far brighter than the score reported on this card. ” -dilemma19

“ My daughter would love these!!! I need to find some for her. ” -carthage44

“ Booooooooooo! ” -ToppsBawlyn87

Set: 1996-97 Fleer (Rate)

Card: #36 Joe Smith

“ The bit at the lower left corner looks like some overly complex watermark developed by the US Treasury Dept. to thwart counterfeiting. ” -revnorb

“ One of my all-time favorite sets. I'll never forget the first time I got any of them, it would have been around this time of the year in 1996. (I didn't think to keep records yet at that point). It was the start of my first full season as an NBA fan, and there was a big celebration for the NBA's 50th Anniversary. There are a few sets that are extra important to me and most of them reside in the 1996-97 season- my favorite in NBA history. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Fun facts: In his one season with the Pistons, they brought him to a game and the fans cheered, "We want Joe!" Later, the Pistons had a "Joe Smith Night" where fans named "Joe" or "Smith" could get it at a discounted rate. ” -wax_house

“ Too much wasted space on the back. ” -carthage44

“ Not much to say. Back needs more info, maybe a bio or some interesting facts? Too plain. ” -captkirk42

“ Nice action shot on the front, lots and lots of empty real estate on the back. ” -Kaline6

Set: 2000 SP Authentic (Rate)

Card: #65 Troy Edwards

“ One of the better SP Authentic designs...I like the embossing that's on it...though it does not show up in scans too often. It's actually easier to see on the back most of the time. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Hey! Look where you're going! You're about to run into a bunch of fancy looking curly stuff! ” -revnorb

“ Looks like he's running right off the card. I got em...I got em...I got em...oops...I ain't got em. ” -Kaline6

“ "Watch out for the pole in front of you!" ” -ToppsBawlyn87

“ his foot is over the white line...out of bounds ” -addysdaddy

“ Yawn. ” -wax_house

“ I've seen better post-junk years-junk. ” -captkirk42

“ Upper had a nice run during the early 2000's. This set included. ” -carthage44

Set: 2000 Pokemon Base Set 2 (Rate)

Card: #38 Dratini

“ YES!!!! I loved playing this game with the kids. Sitting on the floor, openeing packs and trading back and forth was fun.Sadly, it went the way of all other cards when the stronger cards only became available if you bought the more expensive blister packs; no more great finds in wax. Kids grown now and they took the cards with them. ” -SFC Temple

“ oh, no... ” -domentho

“ No comment. ” -Kaline6

“ Kind of plain for a Pokemon card don't you think? I have tried to avoid the whole CCG/TCG thing (The RPG of trading card collecting/gaming) ” -captkirk42

“ Um, what? Are you kidding me? ” -ToppsBawlyn87

“ Scissors, please. ” -NJdevils

“ 5 foot 11 inches and only 7 pounds? WOW ” -carthage44

Set: 2002 Topps (Rate)

Card: #78 Phil Nevin

“ That's a unique border color. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ The bleak years of Topps. White border, name not in foil, maybe this is a better card. As it is, not a fan. ” -vrooomed

“ very similar to the 1998 and 1999 release... ” -addysdaddy

“ Good effort by Topps. Clean, plain but very very nice. Great back and the all important item for us geezers....LARGE CLEAR NUMBERS ” -NJDevils

“ As much as there are many haters of this set (I was one at one time as well) I am liking this set more and more. It was the beginning of Topps pulling out of the Junk Wax Years. ” -captkirk42

“ The "baby poo" color ruins it for me. ” -C2Cigars

“ Too many flails. ” -carthage44

Set: 1993 Pacific (Rate)

Card: #302 Ozzie Smith

“ "Short Gardener"? I guess so. ” -NJDevils

“ English please! ” -carthage44

“ As a Phils fan, i hated playing teh cards back then, you couldn't get nothing by him. what an awesome player. ” -tonym

“ Honestly didn't know there was a market for cards exclusively in Spanish. Not sure there actually was. I somehow got a few packs of these and wasn't overly impressed at the time. Still underwhelmed. ” -vrooomed

“ I can't put my finger on it but I've never cared for any Pacific product...baseball or football. ” -C2Cigars

“ Nice design (I think I mentioned for the football version I liked it but have gotten tired of it over the years) the back I don't like the one line of stats. Ironic since I love vintage cards and the vintage years when they started putting stats on the back only put the previous year and lifetime total. ” -captkirk42

“ Was a never a fan of what Pacific had to offer ” -addysdaddy

Set: 1967 Dexter Press Philadelphia Phillies (Rate)

Card: #12 Bill White

“ That's all they could think to put on the back? ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Ya gotta love the vintage stuff !! ” -uncaian

“ These are beautiful cards that some people are finally discovering after all this time. Some of the teams are very hard to find. ” -Dave Sosidka

“ I thought is was an 80's photo not 60's. Nice quality. ” -carthage44

“ I want. I want. I want. That's all. ” -vrooomed

“ Nice. Is this an 8x10? I guess it is technically a press photo not a "card". ” -captkirk42

“ I remember him as a great Yankee announcer on WPIX channel 11 here in the NY metro area. ” -deporcoruña
