Random Card of the Day


Tuesday, July 14, 2015

Set: 1993 Fleer (Rate)

Card: #315 Jerry Rice



“ Somehow, the huge last name just seems a bit too epic for what appears to be a shot of a player at practice. Also, that was a fumble. ” -revnorb

“ Nice and clean looking action card. The grey makes it look a bit dull though. ” -maestro

“ What's not to like about any Jerry Rice card...LEGEND! ” -bkklaos

“ Transparent lettering on the front is nice. For early 90's, not bad. ” -carthage44

“ I love the front font idea. It's legible, but doesn't take from the photo at all. ” -wax_house

“ An abbreviated set. Only the last name on the front. Only an abbreviated position on the front, nothing on the back. Only an abbreviated team name, no mention of San Francisco, front or back. Did they take the KISS principle a little too far? I like simplicity, but really don't care for the transparent, embossed last name on the front. ” -C2Cigars

“ Finally, a COTD day that I actually have in my collection! Never liked this set though. Needs first names. This is obviously Jerry Rice. Not all players are so obvious though. ” -switzr1

Set: 1992-93 Ultra (Rate)

Card: #376 Peter Ahola



“ I've always liked the 1992-93 Ultra design. It looks good no matter what sport it's showing. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Despite not having a write up on the back,I do like this set.Ahola didn't last long in the NHL but he belonged to 4 different teams. ” -uncaian

“ Another case of nice looking front, nice overall design but terrible back stats. ” -captkirk42

“ Ahola-ta blah! ” -carthage44

“ One of my favorite sets. Three different photos, simple front design. Fun stuff. ” -wax_house

“ I liked this Ultra set in all four sports. Better than the similar sets the next year, which had foil player names. ” -switzr1

Set: 2000 Pacific Vanguard (Rate)

Card: #45 Ruben Mateo



“ Turn DOWN the Red. A nice simple card but the background color is TOO much (at least on the computer, maybe in real life it is easier on the eyes) ” -captkirk42

“ This is not a good card. The back is OK but the front is terrible. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Never liked the Vanguard sets. ” -carthage44

“ I usually love simple designs. But this is ugly. What's with the cosmic aura? ” -C2Cigars

“ Not a terrible design, but his white uniform blends in with his white forcefield. Must make him harder to throw out on the basepaths. ” -switzr1

Set: 2010-11 Upper Deck (Rate)

Card: #352 Andrei Markov



“ Very good scan. Not a bad card design. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I sort of like this design. The baseball version is one of my very incomplete set builds this would be also if I ever decide to collect it. Not much into collecting modern Hockey other than Caps though. ” -captkirk42

“ These look much better than the baseball ones, though the backs still seem a bit plain. ” -jupiterhill

“ Pretty solid looking card. Not sure why the B&W head shot on the front when there's the color one (exactly the same) on the back, but a standard UD product. ” -vrooomed

“ Does Upper Deck still have an NHL license? I know they no longer have a MLB or NFL because they failed to pay athletes that were signing for them. ” -carthage44

“ No need for the little head shot on the front as it is the same as the one on the back. ” -NJdevils

“ And people complain about Topps. Upper Deck used this same design for their 2010 baseball set. Lack of originality must be an industry standard. ” -engine614

Set: 1985 O-Pee-Chee (Rate)

Card: #161 Ken Schrom



“ This guy physically resembles one of my best friends. Interesting. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I wasn't a fan of the design in 1985, but I've changed my mind on it. Gripe: He played 2 full seasons with the Twins and they had to airbrush his hat? ” -vrooomed

“ O-Pee-Chee We Love You! Nice mid 1980s design. ” -captkirk42

“ O-Pee-Chee on a hot streak for Card of the Day! ” -carthage44

“ The Twins need to bring back the red cap. ” -jlaz10

Set: 2014 Panini FIFA World Cup Brazil Adrenalyn XL (Rate)

Card: #232 Hiroshi Kiyotake



“ Not a guy I'm familiar with, because we don't get Bundesliga matches where I live, and he only played five minutes in the World Cup. in that time his team did manage to give up a goal to James Rodriguez. and a fine goal it was. ” -switzr1

“ I'd rather see the back of the cards with the original digital code not airbrushed. ” -volbox

“ I think I'll paraphrase Joyce Kilmer... "I don't think I'll ever see... a good looking T C G" ” -C2Cigars

“ I pass. ” -NJDevils

“ OK looking card for a modern confusing game card. Sorry this is a "random card of the day" that I have Zero interest in. ” -captkirk42

Set: 1979 Topps Star Trek: The Motion Picture (Rate)

Card: #41 Scotty's Domain



“ Most of my friends love Star Trek...but I just can't get into it. I'm a huge Star Wars fan though. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ As much as I loved the "cheesy" show on TV, I never saw the movie...I guess I need to and then try to get me a set of these! ” -bkklaos

“ Ahh good old Scotty.He's probably trying to divert power into this card to make it less boring. ” -uncaian

“ Man I wish I had this set! One to beam up Scotty! ” -Joshua825

“ Beam Me Up Scotty! You KNOW that is my kinda card. :D ” -captkirk42

“ I used to have a bunch of these. The store my dad worked at back then sold a repackage deal with 1 pack each of several Topps non-sport issues. I've never seen this movie, but I remember a bald woman in this set. ” -switzr1

“ R.I.P. Scotty ” -jackal726

“ These can't be very valuable. ” -carthage44

“ So many buttons! ” -cynicalbuddha

“ At first glance I thought that was Captain Kangaroo. ” -Id8jlb8666

“ This one was a snoozer and that from an avowed Star Trek fan. ” -koloth42

Set: 2000 GDS Cards Grand National Winners 1976-1995 (Rate)

Card: #1986 West Tip



“ That's different. Different is good. At first I thought "Kentucky Derby" but now looking at the card I think it's more of an agility challenge like in the Olympics. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Nice card !!! More of these,less "gamer" cards. ” -uncaian

“ These can't be very popular or are they??? ” -carthage44

“ I like it! I always give Dixxy credit for all the fun stuff...QB24, you're right there too! ” -bkklaos

“ Does he have to jump over all those parked cars too? They seem awful close to the track. ” -switzr1

“ Horsy Racing or rather Equestrian Skills Events. Nice looking card. ” -captkirk42

Set: 2012 Topps Heritage - Stick-Ons (Rate)

Card: #23 Mark Teixeira



“ Ahh! Floating disembodied heads are creepy! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Disembodied heads are just disturbing. ” -koloth42

“ How many people actually would peel these stickers? Never liked the floating heads (a la 1963 Rookies). Always a bit creepy to me. This one is particularly spooky looking. ” -vrooomed

“ Absolutely worthless! ” -carthage44

“ Not sure why it's a Stick-On, and not a sticker. He looks like he's painted on the side of an Easter egg. Its so bad-looking, I kind of like it. ” -switzr1

“ Too many worthless inserts in these newer baseball sets. They need to be trimmed down some. ” -suomibear8

“ Yay more vintage! Oh wait it's Heritage, well OK its still all good. ” -captkirk42

“ The idea to include the stickers in 2012 Heritage was great, but what would have been better is to have actual stickers. ” -jlaz10

Set: 2009 Upper Deck Huntik - Legendary Saga (Rate)

Card: #3 Overlos - Legendary Titan of Will



“ I usually stand up for the TCG cards on this site...unless the art is substandard. This art is substandard, tough to read graphics, the description of attack sucks.... ” -SFC Temple

“ Never heard of it and I'm ok with that. ” -koloth42

“ I have no idea what this is??? ” -carthage44

“ As good as this is, I still like '57' Topps baseball better. ” -NJDevils

“ Pretty nice looking CCG (Collectible Card Game, aka: TCG Trading Card Game) card, but I don't recall hearing of it. Huntik must have been an attempt by Upper Deck (maybe one of many) to get into the CCG/TCG market? 2009 is almost 20 years after the MTG (Magic The Gathering) debut and practical monopoly of the CCG world. ” -captkirk42

“ The only thing that shouts "CARD!!!" to me is the Upper Deck logo ” -volbox

“ I have no idea what I am looking at. And the title above confuses me even more. ” -switzr1
