Random Card of the Day

Set: 2000-01 Upper Deck (Rate)

Card: #353 Magnus Arvedson

“ I have to say, I really like Upper Deck Hockey Cards. When I left the hobby, they had their two initial sets which were awesome )90-91 and 91-92). Then when I came back, I started buying the 15-16 and 16-17 sets and they were awesome. Everyone that pops up here is great too. I really enjoy the brand. ” -muskie027

“ The Senators logo is my favorite in all of sports. The Roman theme the team has makes them a favorite. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Typical high quality from UD, however, unless I collect certain players I'll avoid these type cards because the focus is shared with another player. If instead it was a showdown between Arvedson and whomever, then I can see this picture working, but then it'd have both names on the front. ” -Sportzcommish

“ Being the limited collector of hockey I am, I've never seen this design before. But, I like it a lot. The accompanying photo choice is a real hit, too! ” -mkaz80

“ Typical Upper Deck, lots of lines. ” -carthage44

“ Nice photobomb by the Flames guy ” -NJDevils

“ Not a big fan of the design of this set , but at least there is a bio. on the back. ” -uncaian

“ Great picture on the front! ” -cjjt

“ Nice card design. Not great, a couple of years ago I'd say "yuck" (with an emphasis on the "ck" extended guttural sounds) ” -captkirk42

Set: 1981 Perma-Graphic Credit Cards (Rate)

Card: #5 Pete Rose

“ I am surprised to see this is from 1981, because that logo looks very 1970s. My personal opinion is that he should be in the Hall of Fame, for what it's worth (nothing, I know). Off field mistakes should not impact a playing career that had already ended at the time of the mistake. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Never heard of this. Looks like a school ID. I guess not everything old is great, but I actually like it just enough to kind of wish I had it. ” -muskie027

“ Hmm? Can this be used in dugouts? ” -Sportzcommish

“ Love it! Never seen one of these before....love the early 1980's simplicity.....and oh yeah....the player was pretty good too! Wonder if you could charge a bet on this thing? LOL ” -tbshaw

“ Hey, a card I actually own. Weird set. Printed like a credit card. Hard, heavy plastic stock. Place for the autograph on the back--like a credit card. Crap front design. Hate the Phillies logo. Back ok in the sense that there is a lot prose. Never a big Pete Rose fan but I loved the Phillies at the time. Great player but sad that he succumb to his demons regarding gambling. Human frailty exists in all of us. They will let him back in baseball after he dies. ” -cjjt

“ Kinda cool if you can get the player to sign it on the back. ” -carthage44

“ Never heard of these, must Google. ... Neat! ” -Doe MG

“ Did Rose use this credit card to finance some of his gambling? Too soon? ” -Brimose

“ "Accepted in more places than American Express..." ” -mkaz80

“ Credit Card? Credit for what? Supplies from the Perma-Graphics company. It is a nice Odd-Ball card anyway. ” -captkirk42

Set: 2003 Leaf Certified Materials (Rate)

Card: #54 Ron Dayne

“ Ron Dayne was a BEAST! He had a pretty average pro career but he was an absolute monster in college at Wisconsin. Check out his highlights from college as he was a rare combination of speed and power. He ran for 2,109 yards and 21 TD's as a freshman and if you include bowl games (which they do now but not when Dayne played), Dayne is still the all-time leading rusher in NCAA Division 1 FBS with 7,125 career rushing yards. ” -carthage44

“ A case of the cards being much nicer in hand than on scan. can't read his name on scan, I think it was on the Right side vertical? Other than the overuse of chrome shinny stuff it is an OK card. ” -captkirk42

“ I'm sure that the players name is on the front of the card somewhere...right? ” -rmitchell6700

Set: 1995 Assets (Rate)

Card: #46 Dale Earnhardt's Car

“ Great card...I just got my copy about two months ago. Technically this is a UER, as they listed Ricky Viers as Vier, leaving off the s on his name. I was not a big fan of Dale Earnhardt during his life, but after he was killed I realized that I missed his presence in the sport and that I was a fan and didn't really realize it. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Props to the pit crews everywhere, I'm amazed at the speed you can service the cars, but this does nothing to inspire me to collect racing cards. ” -Sportzcommish

“ I had the pleasure of meeting Earnhardt before he died. I was working as a 20 year old at Bass Pro Shops in Springfield, MO. BPS sponsored two of his races that year, he had a BPS logo'd car, and he had come to the flagship store in Springfield for a photo op at one point. Since the store opened at 7, and the first two hours generally had few customers, he decided to wander around. He didn't even have his entourage with him. I was in the golf department, and he talked to me for nearly ten minutes about the latest clubs. Pretty spectacular moment for me. ” -Brimose

“ As an experienced Tire Guy, (Not pit crew, I might add,) I want this card. ” -Dixxy

“ Another Racing card for the RCotD that doesn't show the driver. ” -captkirk42

“ the man! interesting to see the back Andy Petree was no only crew chief but tire changer as well, dont see that anymore ” -Thunderfoot

Set: 2009 Upper Deck - Stars of the Game (Rate)

Card: #GG-JR Jose Reyes

“ Came on strong, flamed out quickly. That would be true for both Jose Reyes and Upper Deck. ” -Brimose

“ Upper Deck Insert? Man it looks like a recent Topps Insert. "GG"? Where does that numbering code come from? I would think it would be SG. ” -captkirk42

“ Not a star anymore. ” -carthage44

“ Not bad. Kind of a cool insert set. ” -muskie027

“ I kinda like the jagged lightning effect on the front emulated once again on the back. I'm usually not one who likes all the computer generated effects on cards, but this one works for me. ” -rmpaq5

Set: 2010 Topps Prime - Retail (Rate)

Card: #75 Eric Decker

“ Despite the full frontal action photo the lack of a designed border to frame the card prevents me from labeling it as an elite product. It may deserve upper middle class status, but not higher. ” -Sportzcommish

“ I only collect Topps football so you think I would like this card. But how many sets does Topps issue each year?.....too many. Uninspired by this needless set from Topps. Plus, is that the best photo they could find? ” -cnangle

“ I do like Topps Prime most of the time. OK so the front looks like typical 1990s Upper Deck and the back looks like 2000s Panini. So what it is OK in my book. Getting soft in my old age I guess. ” -captkirk42

“ A real photo! A rarity on football cards of the day recently. Excellent scan as well. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Free agent Eric Decker. ” -carthage44

“ Coincidence that this card appears so soon after Decker was released? Not quite full coincidence material, but still kind of funny. As for the card, I like the design. Haven't seen this set before, but it's sharp. ” -Brimose

“ For an action shot, it looks very posed. ” -kirkscards

“ I don't love the back, but I kind of like the front. I am not sure if a border is make or break for me, and this is a great photo. It does seem like something is missing on the front though. I would collect these if they were the standard Topps set. I am not a big fan of a company releasing 1,021 sets though. If I was around in 2010, I would have just collected the base Topps set. ” -muskie027

Set: 1997 Action Packed (Rate)

Card: #77 Ernie Irvan's Car

“ A one-off special paint scheme used only in the exhibition race in Japan. sadly I did not see this race as it was on TBS which I did not get at that time. I saw the final two held in Japan though. These races were a big deal? at the time as they were the first held by NASCAR not in North America since 1988, and the first in Asia. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I used to buy Hot Rod magazine for the souped-up cars, dragsters, and funny cars, but have never been much into stock cars. Nice quality, though. ” -Sportzcommish

“ Wish I could read the back. Might be my eyesight, might be the color combo, might be the scan, or it may just be a combination of all three... but I just can't read the back... ” -Dixxy

“ Action Packed... does that mean this card has a raised feel car? If so, that's pretty cool. Overall not a bad design; clean, crisp, refreshing, (wait, sorry I got distracted) ” -Brimose

“ Take away the hideous banner at the bottom and this would be an excellent looking card. Ernie Irvan was my favorite driver when I watched NASCAR as a kid so I'm really happy to see him pop up on RCOTD. ” -ketchupman36

“ I'm so confused. ” -mkaz80

“ Action Packed. No I am not a fan no matter what sport (if these are like the baseball and football Action Packed sets). I don't mind cards of th.ick cardboard brings back some nostalgia for vintage cards but its the way it is folded that gets me. It is like a sealed cardboard stock envelope. Here is a racing card for fans who like seeing the car only. I'm sure some of the fans who follow drivers are a little ticked Mr. Irvan isn't on the card. ” -captkirk42

“ Terrible in so many ways. ” -carthage44

“ please bring back Action Packed!, never seen that hood design before though, since it says Orient espress i wonder if its from when Nascar raced japan ” -Thunderfoot

“ Not understanding the orient express part of this, I am assuming it is cause I just never really followed NASCAR. Maybe someone can explain it. The card is cool looking though. I actually think it is an awesome looking card. ” -muskie027

Set: 2002-03 Be a Player Memorabilia (Rate)

Card: #395 Mike Cammalleri

“ The only exposure to Be a Player is on these random cards of the day and I have to say that I don't like it. They have a decent look and all, but the branding and fonts used on the front and back are what hurts it. ” -muskie027

“ I'd give it 3 out of 5 stars as it has some excellent qualities such as action picture, colors are vibrant, and bio on back. The placement of the team logo and Rookie bar take away from an otherwise appealing card. ” -Sportzcommish

“ We had one of these, I thought only a few weeks ago, but it was back on 21 March (currently on page 9 of the RCotD pages). Different card but same set. I said it there I don't like the computer printout (ticker-tape print) for the set name. Player's name needs to be more prominent. Rookie Bar should either be transparent or horizontal somewhere and much smaller if a solid block. Back is OK I guess for this type of set. I'm guessing it is the base for a relic set. ” -captkirk42

“ Be a Player maybe but they are not Be a Card Producer that is for sure. ” -carthage44

“ Nice rookie card of on of the better players of recent years. ” -DarkSide830

“ Pretty solid card. That LA Kings logo is kind of forgettable though, if I hadn't gotten into hockey recently I wouldn't have known which team it was. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ If the title says "memorabilia", it should not be a plain card. ” -NJDevils

“ Not a big fan of this set , this card is not bad. Cammalleri is a great player wish he could of stayed with the Habs. ” -uncaian

“ It's so nice that his mom is in the front row to watch him play; ” -kirkscards

Set: 2007 Panini Coca-Cola Championship (Rate)

Card: #185 Matthew Hill

“ The rare athlete born in the 26th month of the year. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I'm not familiar with soccer cards at all. This looks like an MLB Showdown type of game card. Very busy front. ” -olerud363

“ I will be spending the day deciding which card is worse, this one or today's COTD "2000 Future Bee Power League Dream Stadium".........not. ” -NJDevils

“ 2nd division English football. This is like a minor league baseball card. ” -deporcoruña

“ Panini. Soccer. Meh. ” -jayoneill

“ Is this a game card? I don't understand. ” -carthage44

“ A soccer TCC? Back is very cluttered with all the teams in the league logos ” -captkirk42

Set: 1970 O-Pee-Chee (Rate)

Card: #87 Steve Renko

“ OPC had worse quality control than it's Topps version, but it's still nice to see an old Expo. ” -olerud363

“ Nice '70's card. It's good to see a card on RCOD that's not mint , that actually looks like someone look at it more than once. ” -uncaian

“ I love the retro facts with the comic on vintage cards. This is also a great simple front. Bonus for OpeeChee of coursec! ” -rmpaq5

“ BRING BACK THE EXPOS! ” -carthage44

“ Love it. Ah Smell the vintage! Nice card even with the extreme off-centering toward miscutting. The fact is is OPC means it is an even rarer mistake just in terms of volume made. ” -captkirk42

“ I was never a fan of 1970 Topps design. I much more prefer the clean, standard block font and black border of the 1971 Topps design and the also very nice looking 1969 design. 70 just doesn't do it for me. This also marked the first set in which Topps did not use white borders. Nowadays, Topps just says darn it, no more borders! ” -Slug03

“ Pretty good centering and cut for a 70s OPC card!! ” -UKboogie

“ Love the older stuff!!! I don't think I knew the Expos were around in 70. For some reason I thought they came in 76. I need to go brush up on my history! ” -muskie027

“ Renko looks 6'-5", 230 pounds and somewhat menacing. ” -Sportzcommish
