Set: 1974-75 A&BC Gum (Rate)

Card: #58 Brian Alderson

“ This is a soccer card right ? He didn't become a nun,did he ? ” -uncaian

“ Nothing like some good old Awful and Been Chewed Gum ” -addysdaddy

“ YES!!!! ” -SFC Temple

“ never seen these before, interesting.. ” -mzentko

“ Amazingly plain card design but then that was the way it all began for card manufacturers. ” -jefferies9

“ At first glance I thought this was some mid-70s non-sport card. Almost thought it was something music related because "Coventry" looked a lot like "Country" ” -captkirk42

“ The trivia answer has faded! Now we'll never know in which Scottish city Mr. Alderson rocked his mullet :( ” -dilemma19

“ I read the back of the card and still have no idea what sport this card is for. ” -carthage44

“ Cool Football League card. I would love to have some 70s English cards like this. ” -switzr1

Set: 2004 Topps Heritage Star Wars (Rate)

Card: #104 Battlefield: Geonosis

“ I only got one pack of this set. What was I thinking? I need to hunt down more. I actually like the prequals, too! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Long, long ago, in a galaxy far, far away.... ” -Kaline6

“ Just in time for the new movie. Are these really random? ” -deporcoruña

“ Send in the clones.Wait ! Don't bother they're here....Meh kinda blah. ” -uncaian

“ Forget the Star Quote, here's a Cigar Quote. "I hate it" ” -C2Cigars

“ For some reason "Star Wars Heritage" doesn't work for me. Maybe something like Retro Star Wars? Classic Star Wars? Star Wars Saga, wait that one was already used I think. OH well enjoy the battle scene from some Star Wars movie ("Attack of the Clones" supposedly) ” -captkirk42

“ I love how they how they have the newer movie scene but the old Empire Strikes Back design! ” -Joshua825

“ Star Wars BOOOO!!! ” -carthage44

“ Heritage Star Wars? I am trying to figure out just what that means. ” -NJdevils

“ I'm huge Star Wars fan, but not a s much with the cards. Great quote and pivotal battle though! ” -DarkSide830

Set: 2013-14 Topps Premier League Match Attax (Rate)

Card: #436 Paolo Di Canio

“ Yuck! I guess the graphic designers who can't get a job in the US go to the UK. A manager's card with Speed, Tackle, Power, Shoot, Skill, Pass points? ” -C2Cigars

“ Weak sauce. ” -carthage44

“ Flagging down a cab? ” -NJDevils

“ Um OK. A bit too busy design for a Match Attax card. ” -captkirk42

Set: 1989 CMC Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Red Barons (Rate)

Card: #20 Joe Redfield

“ Neat card. Design looks more early 80s than 1989 but there's no question this is an 80s design. Check out the font used for the TV station ad on the back, too. I've been to both Scranton and Wilkes Barre as well, in fact I even purchased some cards there. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Nothing is wrong with this card. Name is clear on front, with the position. The back has full stats and gives the league, level, and major league affiliation. And a real card number, not the uni # (and big and clear). Real nice card. ” -vrooomed

“ I was never a big fan of minor league cards, but the more I see them the more I like them. ” -engine614

“ The first thing that caught my eye...his right hand is not gripping the bat. I like the simple design. It would look better with a color border. I guess they were trying to save money on ink. ” -C2Cigars

“ Not bad for a minor league card. Interestingly got traded back to his hometown team after the '88 season. ” -DarkSide830

“ A solid minor league card. ” -NJDevils

“ Besides his oh for two in 88 with the Angels, went 2 for 28 with the Pirates in 91. A career .100 hitter. Maybe it's that loose bat grip! ” -Kaline6

Set: 1999-00 Pacific Paramount (Rate)

Card: #178 Dallas Drake

“ Not a bad set,Drake a pretty good career .Great name. ” -uncaian

“ Pacific is a card series that typically makes me cringe, but this card; only slightly less than some others. ” -DarkSide830

“ You'd think with ice and boards contributing making the photos so white, hockey card manufacturers would opt for darker backs and borders. ” -dilemma19

“ Pretty nice front except for foil, back a bit lacking. Good thing Pacific was not the only card company making Hockey cards that year. ” -captkirk42

“ Love the Drake! ” -carthage44

“ Seems bland to me, too whited out in the background ” -mbarlow092

Set: 1962 Topps (Rate)

Card: #480 Harvey Kuenn

“ 2000+ hits. 8-time All-Star as player (once as manager). Managed a team to the World Series. Only 57 when he passed. Nice card too! ” -vrooomed

“ What is that in the back round, a wheel barrow? ” -deporcoruña

“ Not my favorite Topps set, but a classic Topps set none the less. I wonder how many other wheelbarrows made it to a baseball card? ” -Kaline6

“ Card companies will never make any thing this cool again.I mean come on,how cool is"A Real Keen Hitter". ” -uncaian

“ He was a Giant before he became infamous for his Harvey Wall=Bangers Brew Crew ” -addysdaddy

“ Vintage Wood-grain original ” -ToppsBawlyn87

“ Is that a wad of tobacco in your mouth, or is Topps just trying to shift attention away from the wheelbarrow featured prominently in the background? ” -dilemma19

“ <3 VINTAGE! YAY! One of the most classic Topps designs ever. Classic enough that they imitated it 25 years later. ” -captkirk42

“ Love vintage!!! Fell in love with '62s while collecting the New York Mets inaugural cards. Always liked the photo peeling back to reveal name, team, & position. Kuenn was involved in the trade that Cleveland fans refer to as "the curse of Rocky Colavito". ” -C2Cigars

“ Every time I look at a card from the 1962 set, I love the design more and more. Awesome! If only I were wealthy... ” -cckeith

“ The '62 topps design is not bad, but also not the best ever. I prefer the 2011 62' heritage to the real set. I have also never heard of Kuenn, but he sounds like he was a great player back in his days with Detroit. ” -DarkSide830

Set: 2000 Topps - MVP Promotion (Rate)

Card: #299 David Boston

“ Not the worst front for a promo card, but it is a promo soooo...... ” -DarkSide830

“ Stay tuned to the right edge of your football card for breaking news from Topps ” -dilemma19

“ Who wants to bet anyone who had this card didn't win the promotion? ” -wax_house

“ I really hate adding team names for Cardinals cards. Never know if it's St Louis, Arizona, Phoenix. Same with Raiders, Tampa Bay Ray Devils Devil Rays Fish and Crustaceans. Pick a name and stick with it. ” -NJdevils

“ Kind of like the front. Simple design, but foil lettering. The lettering is easier to read than some foil lettering has been over the years. Contest/Giveaway rules on back. Promo cards can be pretty cool. ” -captkirk42

“ What a total bust, like most Ohio State players. ” -carthage44

Set: 2005-06 Upper Deck Rookie Debut - Hotagraphs (Rate)

Card: #LH-A Luther Head

“ I liked this set overall but not a big fan of this insert. I don't collect college cards and UD used college photos for all the rookies in this NBA set. Even though this is my scan I just realized that he included his number. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ So, the dude's name is barely on the front and absent from the reverse. Great design! ” -wax_house

“ An example of why I stopped buying. The trading card hobby is turning into the "autograph" and "memorabilia" card hobby. ” -C2Cigars

“ Nice auto card. Dang things are on-sticker though. Other than not being an on-card auto it is very nice. ” -captkirk42

“ Too much blank space around the signature ” -mbarlow092

“ Nice autograph, but picture is too small. ” -cjjt

“ the number in the auto is more legible than the name? ” -mzentko

“ Luther Head and Hot do not belong in the same sentence. Nice to see "hits" on the Card of the Day. ” -carthage44

Set: 2008-09 SkyBox (Rate)

Card: #138 Ron Artest

“ The last Skybox NBA set. Somehow, it's eluded me, I have no cards in my collection from this set. I don't really like the design all that much, but at least there is a photo background, not some computer generated thing like the early Skybox releases. Sadly, there are no cards of him under his former name Panda Friend, which he used while in China. He legally changed his name to Metta World Peace several years ago..which led to many jokes when he was cut for salary reasons twice in the last few years. ("Lakers cut World Peace for money"). Interestingly, he is one of only two people to wear three different numbers, all in the 90s. 91, 93 and 96 have only been worn by two people in NBA history each. He is the only one to get cards wearing #96. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I can't point to anything I don't like about this card. Odd though, that despite not seeking many basketball cards, the back design just screams circa-2008. Does it remind me of some Upper Deck baseball product?? ” -dilemma19

“ Nice card hard to read the foil printing but then it is the post-junk years. This design (minus the foil lettering) is good for HOF or retired player inserts. Only real complaint about the back is his jersey number is much bigger and a little easier to see than the actual card number. ” -captkirk42

“ I dig the design. Could use a headshot on the back, but other than that, this is cool. ” -wax_house

“ I know he bounced around to a lot of teams but I do not recall "Metta World Peace" playing for the Rockets. ” -carthage44

“ Gotta love those free throw actions shots. ” -bigmeat

“ Nice design, but the front is somewhat plain for my liking. Nice shot as well. ” -DarkSide830

Set: 2002-03 Pacific (Rate)

Card: #127 Sergei Fedorov

“ The basic Pacific hockey sets are phenomenal. ” -wax_house

“ One of the better Pacific designs I've seen. Nice action shot as well. ” -DarkSide830

“ One of the best ,nice set too. ” -uncaian

Clean design. Good picture showing a lot of action. Sergei was a center, so it would have been nice to see him on offense, but this is nice. ” -cjjt

“ I was a big fan of his back in the day even thou I am a Blackhawks fan. ” -carthage44

“ Never cared for the "e e cummings" printing on cards. Overall not a bad card design. It looks like Sergei buried his stick in Claude Lemieux's gut. Of course, I had the same feeling when I saw the Picasso Coyote. ” -C2Cigars

“ Simon says....."FREEZE" ” -NJDevils

“ OK card. This is more like cards should look like. I would make the player's name a little larger and use proper capitalization for names. ” -captkirk42
