Set: 2012 Topps Update (Rate)

Card: #US29 Jonathan Sanchez



“ Love these update sets because they are full of rookies! ” -carthage44

“ Not a bad design ” -lxnlxn

“ This is an excellent scan. Well done whoever uploaded it. Dude looks terrified though. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Meh. Forgettable card, anonymous player. (I may be a tad bitter at not having grown up a LHP) ” -dilemma19

“ Like this design, what some bloggers call the "surfboard" set. ” -captkirk42

“ I LOVE these simple, sharp designs. ” -RoyalChief

“ Not nearly the best in the 2012 update set, but its a topps update card, so I cant complain. ” -DarkSide830

Set: 2014 Bowman Chrome (Rate)

Card: #93 Nelson Cruz



“ I actually like the recent bowman sets, and the chrome set exibits some neat stats on the back. LOVE the pic on the front as well. ” -DarkSide830

“ Nice card overall. I really dig the HR spray chart on the back. Nice change of pace. ” -RoyalChief

“ Not a huge fan of Chrome to begin with. I don't mind the basic front design, the back OY with those graphics are we sure this isn't some sophisticated stratomatic type card game? ” -captkirk42

“ Steroids saved his career. ” -carthage44

“ With the exception of a blank back, I think this back is one of the most useless I've seen. Don't care for the front design either. ” -C2Cigars

Set: 2000-01 Pacific (Rate)

Card: #28 Herbert Vasiljevs / Sergei Vyshedkevich



“ Nice two player card. I like that they are from the same team. What is going on with that design? Is that supposed to be the goal/net? Back is pretty good for a two person "team rookies" card. ” -captkirk42

“ Not a bad set from Pacific,I think most of the rookies from this set were "one season,if that,wonders". ” -uncaian

“ That design on the left side of the card looks like some kind of tower. Not sure what they were going for there. ” -carthage44

“ Nyet! ” -NJDevils

“ Heck yes, Herbert Vasiljevs! Was never a huge fan of two rookies on one card. RIP Thrashers :( ” -wax_house

“ That's easy for you to say. ” -Kaline6

Set: 1991 Champs Hi Flyers (Rate)

Card: #88 Kurt McMillen



“ Interesting subject, but I don't follow racing or in this case stunt cycling? ” -captkirk42

“ Hey, cool, a local guy! Beacon is practically in walking distance. I've never seen this set before but it is something I would not mind adding to my collection. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Hey, I actually have this entire set! I don't know why, or where it came from, but I have it. Make me an offer! ” -Kaline6

“ Darn, he's married. ” -wax_house

“ Good looking front, if you're into this sort of thing. Odd that the back includes marital status. ” -switzr1

“ I like the design. Simple with a few subtle design elements. Only one improvement to make it just that much better...a different border color. ” -C2Cigars

“ Now that's something you don't see everyday. That is a pretty sweet card. ” -RoyalChief

“ Look at this back picture of this guy. He does not look like 26 years old, more like 46. ” -carthage44

“ Neat card. Something different ” -NJdevils

Set: 2006 Bowman Chrome (Rate)

Card: #4 Lawrence Vickers



“ I'm OK with the overall design, but I'm not a chrome fan and I hate the fact that Bowman is mostly for Prospects now. ” -captkirk42

“ Browns, sorry I have to laugh, HAHA! ” -carthage44

“ Let's just crank out as many different sets as we can. Maybe someone will even buy them! ” -dilemma19

“ Poor coaching wasted this talented player... Same old song and dance with my Brownies. ” -SFC Temple

“ Decent enough looking card. I'm sure I don't have any of these. ” -switzr1

“ Okay design, but I always felt that Bowman Chrome were always a little too dark. Too difficult to see clearly. ” -cjjt

Set: 2006 SAGE HIT - Design for Success Green (Rate)

Card: #D8 Tye Hill



“ Why is he in a glass? There's gotta be a record somewhere for more whitespace in a regular card. ” -volbox

“ Very magical, looks like he's appearing from the swirling smokish stuff...why? Two thumbs down on this one, front & back. ” -Kaline6

“ These HIT cards are starting to grow on me. ” -RoyalChief

“ Weirdest front EVER. ” -DarkSide830

“ I just added this card on New Years! Nice!!! ” -carthage44

“ Is that a votive candle and you are supposed to light his helmet? Certainly the card was not designed with success in mind. ” -NJdevils

“ No sir, I don't like it. -Mr. Horse from Ren & Stimpy ” -jupiterhill

“ Awesome!! Football players and "will it blend", together at last on a trading card. Never heard of this set, but the back suggests this design was a winning entry in a contest. It would be cool to see your design on an actual production card... ” -dilemma19

“ UGH Never been a fan of HIT because it is all College. Sure I'll get guys who are on my Homie teams or the guys who I PC but out of that I hate this stuff. That aside the front is so-so all white designs don't often work well this one doesn't what is with the squares? Back is OK but since they are all college guys even if they did put stats on the back they wouldn't take up much room. ” -captkirk42

“ What the...???? I'm at a loss for words. Or more correctly, too many negative words to choose from. ” -C2Cigars

Set: 2011 Topps - Super Bowl Legends (Rate)

Card: #SBL-XI Fred Biletnikoff



“ An otherwise fine card except the lack of a number. That is one of my "pet peeves" in the hobby. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ No frills, just a solid card. I don't mind that no particular element stands out. Not the greatest photo, but quite reasonable if it was the best available shot taken during Super Bowl XI. ” -dilemma19

“ Nice Insert card. I love Super Bowl cards. Ah back when the Raiders were real beasts. ” -captkirk42

“ I hate the Raiders, but Biletnikoff was one of the greatest. Just look at them hands...no gloves and still reeling them in. Oh, sweet card as well. ” -RoyalChief

“ at first glance I thought this was a ProSet from early 90s ” -NJdevils

“ Topps have always made an effort to include legends into their sets. ” -carthage44

“ Haven't seen these before, but I like it. Good looking photo, presumably taken during the game in the description. I like commemorative sets like this, and the design is good too. ” -switzr1

Set: 1993 Ultra (Rate)

Card: #636 Nolan Ryan



“ Love the early Ultra designs. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ This one looks better than the Bleachers Tri-Star St. Louis Midwest Collectors Convention card of him in the Tux and the terrible Bleachers hat! ” -switzr1

“ Nice front, ok back, and Nolan Ryan...class act, what a thrower! ” -Kaline6

“ A picture from practice. Good action, though. Nice back--3 different pictures on the card. ” -cjjt

“ I love this set. The flaming baseball as part of the logo was a nice touch. Also I like the player photos of Nolan in this card. ” -duaned99

“ Like the front, even though it reeks of typical 1990s style. Back a bit plain. ” -captkirk42

“ Nice Fleer Ultra (ha!) card of the best pitcher I ever saw. ” -vrooomed

“ I like when brands run a similar design across the major sports in a release year. And this Fleer Ultra design is probably the best of those types. ” -wax_house

“ Even though I am a White Sox fan, I still watching the video of Nolan pounding Robin Ventura in the head! LOL!!! ” -carthage44

“ The Ryan Express! It was always fun to look in the paper to see how he did! ” -Joshua825

“ I was so impressed with '92 Fleer Ultra back then, only to be sorely disappointed with the 93 edition. It's almost the same just not as good as the original. ” -volbox

Set: 2003-04 Fleer Tradition (Rate)

Card: #277 Zarko Cabarkapa



“ Of all the more than 2000 NBA players with cards, this is the second one of his to be Card of the Day. (both of which were my scans) This one features a photo taken at the NBA Draft superimposed over a generic street ball photo. The veteran players in the set got much better cards. He played only three years in the NBA, and then retired due to injury. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Nothing traditional about this lazy design. ” -carthage44

“ I get that he's a draft pick so there aren't any pictures of him in the team uniform, but this card is basically empty, front and back. "Destiny"?!? That was the best blurb Fleer could come up with? ” -dilemma19

“ Ah a love/hate retro card. What I love about Fleer Tradition is they usually used regular old fashioned raw cardboard and a modified older design. OK this guy is a rookie so he has no pro stats but couldn't they have listed his college years? Maybe some kind of bio. The back looks a bit blank. This is where the old style of having a cartoon on the back helped. Another "hate" is the wearing a suit/tie with modern ball cap is more recent years tradition looks very odd in a retro set. ” -captkirk42

“ For some reason the back of this card cracks me up. No college or NBA experience, yet it was his destiny. LOL ” -RoyalChief

“ And the award for worst back in the history of sports cards goes to.....the envelope please..... ” -NJDevils

“ I just never really cared for a suit and tie on a card. One of the least informative card backs I've ever seen. Spelling his name in Scrabble will yield many points. ” -Kaline6

“ It is my "destiny" to own this card someday. ” -switzr1
