Random Card of the Day

Set: 1998 Decipher Star Wars CCG: Special Edition Limited Dark Side (Rate)

Card: #NNO Chyler

“ Normally, I'm a supporter of the TGCs; I like the art and a lot of the storylines. This here reminds me of the cork coasters with the little brass knob on one side to pull it in and out of it's holder. You know, the ones at Gramma and Grampa's. ” -SFC Temple

“ I don't remember this character. I don't mind some of the gaming cards, if they have a large photo. Stuff like this though, zero interest, even if it's wrestling. ” -switzr1

“ Meh. For a card that's supposed to promote or tie into the movie, they could have done better with the image. ” -dilemma19

“ Love some SW cards, but the CCG stuff not so much. No idea what the deal is with the game, and never bothered to try to learn. Somewhere I have a box of these I got dirt cheap back then, can't say if it all even got opened. ” -Doc Floyd

“ Terrible non-action shot. ” -carthage44

“ As CCG cards and games go this is OK. The design for the back though doesn't say "Star Wars" to me. ” -captkirk42

Set: 2013 Topps WWE Dog Tags Signature Series (Rate)

Card: #8 Christian

“ The ladder matches he, Edge, The Hardy Boyz, and the Dudley's put on were absolutely epic! ” -rmpaq5

“ When I was in school wrestling was the most popular sport among my friends. I never got into it...but I also never saw the "Divas" at the time, or else that might have been different (lol) ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Christian was a very underrated wrestler who retired earlier in the year. He never received his due in WWE as a singles wrestler. A funny story about Christian...Vince McMahon found him to be so ugly, that at one point McMahon wanted Christian's face to have a big blue dot over it when he appeared on television in interviews and matches. For the card, I've seen far worse. ” -ShoTime

“ Not a bad card , one of my favorite WWE wrestlers & of course Canadian. ” -uncaian

“ NOT big into wrastlin'. Nice looking card for "signature" card insert set. ” -captkirk42

“ Pretty good design. No idea who he is though. ” -Doc Floyd

“ I'm cool and you know it! ” -carthage44

“ Pele, Madonna, Prince, Ronaldo, Ali, Cher. I may have forgotten a couple of people from the list of "those identifiable by a single name", but I'm quite certain 'Christian' does not belong in said company. The card's decent, but looks like it belongs in 1993, not 2013. ” -dilemma19

“ No, I'm not going to pull your finger. ” -NJDevils

Set: 2000 Topps Gold Label Class 3 (Rate)

Card: #92 Rick Asadoorian

“ This action shot of him approaching third really looks staged. ” -rmpaq5

“ I loved the gold label concept/set. The cards look so good in person, like every one is a refractor. It probably doesn't hurt that I pulled a 1/1 from a single pack purchase of the NBA set, my first 1/1. . ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Pretty solid all-around. ” -carthage44

“ I don't know something about this card looks awkward. Not a very fitting design for something called "Gold Label", more like "Gold Lame"., ” -Doc Floyd

“ A very different card and I I like it a lot. ” -NJdevils

“ The Gold Label with its 3 classes is one of the most confusing sets I had seen when I got back into the hobby around 2003 or 4 or whenever it was I was getting back into the hobby. The design is OK but lacking and the name hard to read a bit. Foil lettering of course "gold label" what else? Back nice look but lacking info. ” -captkirk42

“ Cool looking card but eventually a headache with all the different levels and telling them apart. Other than PC, passing on these! ” -Joshua825

“ I really liked Gold Label hockey. I just wish they didn't create the 1/1's for each color and class - totally unnecessary. Thick stock, embossed cards, clean designs, but too many parallels. ” -suomibear8

Set: 2001 Upper Deck (Rate)

Card: #2 David Boston

“ Really solid design from UD. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Isn't this two days in a row of the same guy? ” -deporcoruña

“ Two David Boston's in the past few days. What a bust from Ohio State!!! ” -carthage44

“ What??? Another David Boston card? What are the odds? Or did he hack the database? A nice design. The graphics are kept to a minimum on the front but add a nice touch. ” -C2Cigars

“ Clean, uncluttered front with a good action shot. ” -dilemma19

“ Didn't we just have a Random Card of the Day David Boston ? not complaining cause this is a cool card. ” -uncaian

“ Another Cardinal. Never get used to them not being St Louis. Decent design, another UD set that looks pretty good. ” -Doc Floyd

Set: 1994 Press Pass Optima XL (Rate)

Card: #8 Ernie Irvan

“ I have nothing but good things to say about Ernie Irvan. He was my absolute favorite driver growing up. This is an interesting long card but the space is used very well on the front and back. ” -ketchupman36

“ Awesome. Ernie was my favorite driver when I discovered the sport and he still is right up there. 1994 was a tough year for Ernie as he was almost killed in a practice wreck at Michigan. He had only a 10% chance to even survive, but he did...and even raced and won again. This is one of only four "tall boy" sets issued for NASCAR. I got it as a single years ago, I never opened a single pack of the oversized NASCAR cards. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ That's a top-notch mustache! Interesting observation: Earned almost as much money in 1994 as 1992 -- in half as many starts! ” -dilemma19

“ I like Billy...nice add! ” -bkklaos

“ So much money for someone who can make 4 left turns. ” -carthage44

“ This if the first time I've seen a card of any kind that has stats of the season currently being run. ” -rmpaq5

“ Look like it was modified to removed his beer bottle and his cigarette from his left hand. ” -PMB

“ I'm guessing this is a larger than standard size card? Front OK for racing card I guess, but where is his car? Back again I think looks OK but again his car? I can see by his suit he drives the Texaco Havoline car but it would be nice to see the cars as well. ” -captkirk42

“ Well, it beats soccer. ” -NJDevils

“ What's with the shading of the rest of the card? ” -corozco

“ I usually like non-standard sized cards, but this one doesn't really do it for me. I've mentioned it before: I'm not a fan of motorsports, but if I collected the cards, I would want more pictures of the cars, and less of the drivers. (I'm sure Danica Patrick fans would disagree). Glancing at the thumbs for this checklist, it looks like only about a dozen cards have a car on them. ” -switzr1

Set: 2000 Fleer Tradition (Rate)

Card: #38 David Boston

“ I pulled this up and then went to get some water, when I was walking back I couldn't see his jersey at first, as it matches the background, and I thought it was a floating disembodied head. I'm glad to see that is not in fact the case :) I like the green back, the NBA set of this design got brownish red. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Good-looking set. I like the vintage look. Name, team (logo and script), position all easy to read. Could do without the fake signature. Back is really good with cartoon, complete stats (one year because he was a rookie), and easy-to-read number along the top edge to make sorting easy. This set is a winner for me. ” -switzr1

“ Nice, clean, and I love the comic picture on the back to go with the trivia information. ” -rmpaq5

“ Not bad looking card at all. ” -uncaian

“ Good looking card, front and back. ” -Doc Floyd

“ Love Fleer Tradition. Nice Retro set, before Retro sets became too mainstream and too modern. ” -captkirk42

“ New card, old theme. I like it, but understand why some might not... ” -dilemma19

“ I loved this set, one day I might go back and try to complete it. ” -jupiterhill

“ Fleer Tradition?? You mean Topps Tradition!! Blatant plagiarism of Topps' 1954 baseball cards. ” -C2Cigars

“ Another Ohio State Buckeyes bust. ” -carthage44

Set: 2002-03 Upper Deck (Rate)

Card: #336 Todd MacCulloch

“ Very dark. Very hard to read. And I see it's Billy's scan, so I assume it looks that way in hand too, as he is great at scanning. 2003 was the year I quit collecting the first time. Sets like this might be why. ” -switzr1

“ This was the last NBA set that was truly done right, with a second series that covered the rarer- but still regular-players in the league, trades and undrafted rookies. His career ended shortly after this card was issued due to foot problems. He was part of two consecutive NBA finals, in 2000-01 and 2001-02. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Two days in a row...what was the fascination Upper Deck had in the late 90s early 00s of having the player's jersey number so upfront? When I got back into collecting 6 or 7 years ago I would often see the jersey number and go looking for that number in the checklist. ” -rmpaq5

“ Oh so bad. ” -carthage44

“ For some reason I like this UD set. Guy looks a bit confused, probably didn't get a lot of playing time, can't see those tiny stats to be able to tell. ” -Doc Floyd

“ I like borderless cards. Never heard of Todd MacCulloch, but it appears he was a really tall guy who couldn't do much beyond blocking shots. Were fans in Philly pining for Shawn Bradley, so they drafted another stick man? ” -dilemma19

“ Average card from modern times. OK Upper Deck foil lettering BAD. Design OK not great. Good they have team name, logo would be nice. Back: So-so. Too much space at bottom. Perhaps a bit more of mini-bio. ” -captkirk42

“ One of the goofiest looking players ever...nothing but respect for ya, Todd, but just being honest... ” -SaveDaKid

Set: 2002 Upper Deck Ballpark Idols (Rate)

Card: #22 Jason Tyner

“ Ordinarily I'm not a big fan of busy fronts, but this one looks pretty good. Wish the back was more stat friendly. Another thing that bugs me about the back is the uniform number is so much more prevalent than the card number. ” -rmpaq5

“ I like the design. It reminds me of the Minesweeper game. It also looks very similar to UD Playmakers Limited. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Decent card. A bit of a stretch to describe the numbers on the back as "stats". I don't remember Jason Tyner, with or without capitalized letters in his name. ” -dilemma19

“ Eh, reminds of the Green Monster, odd shot, strange design, back might as well be blank. Seen worse, but still just a boring UD card. ” -Doc Floyd

“ Upper Deck was in full overproduction at this point. ” -carthage44

“ Front is meh. Crossword pattern should go, printing should not be in foil but hey its post-overproduction years team logo would be nice at least you can read team name. Hey where is this guy's bat? Hehe. vertical stats need to go better to be horizontal for those. I'm guessing he is a rookie. ” -captkirk42

“ 4 Homeruns in 5,372 professional plate appeareances... ” -volbox

Set: 2010 Panini Crown Royale - Royalty Materials (Rate)

Card: #3 Larry Fitzgerald

“ Didn't another card from this set come up as Random Card of the Day once? I like it. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Fitz is a class act player. And this is coming from a Seahawks fan. ” -ketchupman36

“ The design is very busy. Focus isn't on the player photo, nor on the swatch. I guess it just lacks focus. Don't forget, you can click these photos and vote on the sets. I would like to see a rating for every set on the site eventually! ” -switzr1

“ Not impressed, trying too hard to be too fancy. Give it a solid F+ for failure. ” -Doc Floyd

“ I feel like I've recently seen one from this set on rcotd. Layout is a little busy, but I like it. ” -dilemma19

“ I'm ready for the comments about "overkill" on inserts (which to a certain degree I agree with), but I still like it, especially for a "stud" player! ” -bkklaos

“ I see the entire set is blue. I'm not that familiar with football cards and their parallels, but for just plain old looks the blue card with the red swatch and uni doesn't do it for me. The simplicity of the back is nice. ” -rmpaq5

“ Can't find one place to dock this card points in. A+ ” -DarkSide830

“ Way too much flair. ” -carthage44

“ "Pardon me...would you have any Grey Poupon?" ” -Madden95

“ I thought we had one of these things about a year back. If not OK I've never been too keen on relics/materials/jersey cards. The design is a bit fancy but then again it's Crown Royale. I like the back it is OK for the type of card it is. ” -captkirk42

“ That piece of material is royally small. ” -vrooomed

Set: 1997 Score Board SB (Rate)

Card: #12 Bobby Labonte

“ This was never a favorite set of mine- the cards always felt slightly greasy even when coming out of the packs brand new in 1997. Design isn't too bad though. By the way, the set name is simply "Scoreboard" The SB is the logo, but it gets tacked onto the name sometimes. It shouldn't. I believe this was the last Scoreboard set released, but the memory is getting hazy after 19 years. (I'm also still having a hard time accepting that 1997 was 19 years ago...ugh) Bobby won the Championship in 2000 and still shows up at 4 races every year, but he has not run the full schedule in several years now...and he hasn't had competitive equipment in an even longer time. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Not really bad, but not all that great either. Guess it gets the job done. ” -Doc Floyd

“ Nothing cooler than a NASCAR driver, LOL! ” -carthage44

“ Couldn't get into Nascar as hard as i tried over the years. As far as racing cards goes, it sure is one of them... ” -Madden95

“ Nice card for racing I suppose. I don't follow racing so I don't know what should be expected for this. Has his name OK but doesn't show his car at all. Minus a point or ten for that. ” -captkirk42
