Random Card of the Day

Monday, October 12, 2015

Set: 1991 Pacific (Rate)

Card: #515 Jeff Bostic

“ So nice to see cards of Offensive Linemen, and that is what I miss from Pacific and the days of super large sets like this. Bostic was one of the original Hogs. ” -armac

“ Front is fine, but that back design may be the worst I've ever seen. You know it's bad when I don't like it! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Always liked this set. Wish it didnt come out in the 90s glut so it could have carried some value. Good stock, solid pics, bold team based colors and backs filled with stats and facts. Not sure why teams put team logos on back and not the front though... puzzles me ” -SFC Temple

“ Jeff is so hot. He and brother Joe were the first brothers in Clemson finally made a deal alongside Dwight Clark back in the 70s. ” -dah15

“ These cards were not that appealing at all. Then again, lots of cards in the early 90's were not appealing. ” -addysdaddy

“ A 260 pound offensive lineman. Wow, the times have changed. ” -carthage44

“ Loved Pacific when it first came out. Over the years I have flip flopped on liking this set. Nice to see the Skins represented on Random Card Day! ” -captkirk42

“ Ahhh, 1991 & The Redskins, not a good combination for my Lions. They beat us 45-0 to start the season, and 41-10 to oust us from the playoffs. Oh, the card...it's ok. Prefer centered pictures, as to the offset ones. ” -Kaline6

Set: 1998 Press Pass - Pick Offs Blue (Rate)

Card: #22 Leonard Little

“ Something tells me #1 is going to be hurting pretty bad soon... ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Should still be in jail for killing a woman while drunk. Instead, he only got 90 days. ” -volbox

“ Nice! Collegiate level leap frog! ” -koloth42

“ Somehow his DUI killing of another driver while in his Lincoln Navigator slipped through the pages ” -addysdaddy

“ Ugh Press Pass. My biggest problem with Press pack is I'm not into College Uniforms for Pro players, except sometimes for throwbacks after they have made a name for themselves in the Pros. Even then it is usually only for the players I actively collect, not all players and definitely not for unknowns. ” -captkirk42

“ I am very disappointed that Press Pass discontinued their products. ” -carthage44

Set: 1993 Action Packed Monday Night Football (Rate)

Card: #25 Darryl Talley

“ I love Action Packed, always have, always will, but pink? Seems like an odd choice. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Weirdos ” -dah15

“ Interesting set but no surprise something like this exists since it was from the early 90s. ” -koloth42

“ Buffalo 35- Oilers 7. yeah I am pretty sure this was a sleeper. fast forward 7 years and if you were sleeping during the last :16 seconds of the game, you missed the most disgusted expression on Doug Flutie's face ever. ” -addysdaddy

“ Action Packed. When I first got the Redskins team set their first year I thought the cards were OK to pretty cool. Skip ahead a few years/decades and now this raised relief card set is on my list of "Don't Like"s. Also some of the sets were so similar looking from year to year it is sometimes hard to know which year you have. ” -captkirk42

“ Action Packed has some pretty cool designs but this set was weak. ” -carthage44

Set: 2008 Topps Chrome (Rate)

Card: #153 Kazuo Matsui

“ Cool card, and cool write-up. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Yawn at the 1960's Bowling Alley Letter Font on the header of the card. I smell High Karate cologne and PBR beer from here ” -addysdaddy

“ Ah the Circus Design. It is odd in late 07 when I first saw previews of the 08 design I hated it, then when it came out and I bought in on a case break (took my homies the Nats, the Cubs and Rockies - I was into the Rockies then) I sort of liked it then a few years later I hated it again. Now I'm back to liking it again. ” -captkirk42

“ What happened to this guy? He was hot for a couple of years then disappeared. ” -carthage44

“ For some reason, I liked the '08 design ('07 was better). I think the gold parallel looks better than the base just b/c of the border. The front border looks better with color instead of white. I love the amount of info on the back though! ” -spazmatastic

Set: 2014 Topps Match Attax World Stars (Rate)

Card: #198 Igor Akinfeev

“ Great uniform! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ This really isn't a terrible design. It's WEIRD, and it's kinda STUPID, but it's not terrible. More interesting than the last 30 years of Topps base sets, anyway. ” -revnorb

“ What is that? Way too busy to make the cut for me, I got sea sick thinking about all the waves this card is making. ” -addysdaddy

“ I am not a real fan of Topps Attax no matter which sport. Geez this card is extra bright looks like it should be a 1994 card not 2014. Everything old is new again. ” -captkirk42

“ Only 2 attack for a goalkeeper? Bad ” -carthage44

Set: 1995 Upper Deck (Rate)

Card: #196 Ted Musgrave

“ Ted was always one of my favorite drivers. He never won a Cup race but he did win the Truck series Championship. I'm friends with him on Facebook but he never posts anything. He also is a cancer survivor. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Ted's real close enough ” -dah15

“ Ted, they moved the typewriter. ” -NJdevils

“ Interesting card, can't figure out what he is doing exactly. ” -captkirk42

“ I thought this was Will Ferrell from the side. ” -carthage44

Set: 2006 Inkworks Veronica Mars Season 1 (Rate)

Card: #64 Disguise

“ Never heard of the set or the series, but like it! ” -bkklaos

“ Everyone trying to capitalize on the trading card market during the 2000's. ” -carthage44

“ Veronica Mars a show I never got around to watching. Sort of wanted to but never did. This looks like they are either trying to pick up Anime fans or sex offenders who obsess over schoolgirl fantasies. ” -captkirk42

“ I hope these guys made some money off these cards ” -NJDevils

“ Not a fan of using same pic on front and back... regardless of type of card; Sport or non ” -SFC Temple

Set: 1995-96 Hoops (Rate)

Card: #29 Bobby Phills

“ 1995-96 Hoops was the second NBA set to enter my collection- therefor it holds a big place in my memories and is one of my favorite sets because of it. Design wise it is not all that spectacular though. Phills was killed in a street car accident- he was racing on the highway- and his number is retired by both Charlotte franchises, the team he was playing for at the time. (the first franchise moved to New Orleans in 2002) ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Nice but the name banner looks like some kind of out-o-bounds pylon. Name banners generally look better horizontal across the top or bottom of the card. If using the vertical side use the whole area and make it a border, not an afterthought. ” -captkirk42

“ I really like that they gave you the players college stats. You can never have enough stats. ” -carthage44

Set: 2005 Liga Mexicana de Beisbol (Rate)

Card: #NNO Enrique Quiñones

“ Always a big fan of the non-MLB cards, just because of the limited production and distribution. Plus, it's interesting to see what the smaller companies have to offer. I like the bat up the right side on the front, but I could without the digital effects on the reverse. ” -vrooomed

“ Nice card. Wow just looked it up and the Mexican Baseball League (Minor League) is celebrating it's 90th year. ” -captkirk42

“ Always cool to see foreign stuff but I wish they printed the team name nice and large because that tiny logo means nothing to me. What's his team called, the Tuneras? You can Tunera a piano, but you can't Tunera a fish? ” -revnorb

“ Who knew??? ” -carthage44

Set: 2003-04 Fleer Focus - NBA Shirtified (Rate)

Card: #17 Jermaine O'Neal

“ This was a cool insert concept because there were multiple parallels, and they told you where on the jersey the relic piece came from. The patches were taken from the names or number. On the relic version the relic takes the place of the team logo on the card front. Jermaine O'Neal was one of the first players who skipped college, entering the League in 1996-97 and he played until 2013-14. He's not related to Shaquille O'Neal. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ What the is "shirtified"? Dropping the "r" would better define the card. ” -C2Cigars

“ What's next NBA Shortified...for those players under 6'5"?? ” -addysdaddy

“ Some dashes that kinda look like stitches? HAHA BAD! ” -carthage44

“ Not sure what to think of this insert card. Not really worth talking about. ” -captkirk42
