Set: 2008 Inkworks Supernatural Connections (Rate)

Card: #24 Family Connection: Separation



“ I never watched this show, but that looks like a foil card...if so, that is an excellent scan. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Not a bad looking card.Great T.V.series,time for it to move on though. ” -uncaian

“ I assume Supernatural Connections is a movie I've never heard of. Shouldn't the name of the card be Dean Winchester? I'm sure my collection will never feel incomplete without this card. ” -switzr1

“ Do sets like this really have much of a demand? ” -koloth42

“ huh? ” -wax_house

“ I have no idea what this is. ” -carthage44

“ Not much to say about this one. During its first season I watched one maybe two episodes of Supernatural. It was OK and I sort of wanted to continue with it, but put it off. ” -captkirk42

“ Never heard of these cards or the show (movie?)...kids would have been one and three years of age respectively about this time and that explains why! ” -bkklaos

Set: 1983 O-Pee-Chee (Rate)

Card: #67 U.L. Washington



“ UL actually stands for UL. That's his actual name ” -Young Kilo

“ The purple border seems out of place, but otherwise a nice card. OPC too, can't beat that. ” -jupiterhill

“ Here come the O-Pee-Chee comments! If my memory serves me right (which isn't always the case these days), we called him U.L. "Toothpick" Washington, as every time we saw him when they came to play the M's in the Kingdome (i.e. "Gloom Dome") he had a toothpick in his mouth! ” -bkklaos

“ HAHA, O-Pee-Chee again! Will in ever end? Is Canada taking over the site? ” -carthage44

“ Toothpick man. Love OPC. Thought Topps did a 20-year homage (kinda similar to the 1963s). ” -vrooomed

“ Ah the smell of early 1980s O-Pee-Chee. :) ” -captkirk42

“ These Royals unis were the perfect use of pullover & sansabelt technology. ” -jlaz10

“ U.L. doesn't stand for anything. Just like A.C. Green. Love 80s Topps! ” -wax_house

Set: 1955 Topps (Rate)

Card: #192 Jim Delsing



“ I like this front design. Career stats on the back would make it near perfect. :) Although, having fielding stats is a definite plus. ” -vrooomed

“ Ahhhh, wonderful! A real vintage card. Not some reprint, retro, heritage, archive knock-off. ” -C2Cigars

“ Probably will never own it, but love it! Nice condition and well centered too! ” -bkklaos

“ Breathtaking!!! ” -carthage44

“ And look at that, the day my comment lamenting fire truck cards is posted, the 'Write One' is for some classic baseball. Just awesome. ” -wax_house

“ I actually like the back of the card better. The front has a lot against it- a fake background (not a real photo), a fake signature, a horizontal layout, and I'm not even sure if that is a drawing or a picture on there...especially on the left it looks like a drawing. But on the other hand...it's 1955! Vintage is ALWAYS good, regardless of the sport. My oldest parent was only 9 years old when this set came out. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Classic ” -jackal726

“ Yes!! My favorite baseball set of all time. Oh, to have been a kid in 1955... ” -cckeith

“ I like the sideways design and background solid color. Overall nice card design. ” -Joshua825

“ I'm not always a big fan of the horizontal card layout, but the solid color background ties the two-image view together a lot more nicely than its usually done. ” -revnorb

“ ANY vintage is good vintage. ” -engine614

“ The evolution of the flat brim hat. ” -EdTheStatMan

Set: 2009 Rittenhouse Spider-Man Archives (Rate)

Card: #67 Avengers



“ I don't like Spider Man. Is the guy on top floating? The back mentions Capt. America, but I don't see him. Clearly I'm not a comic book guy... ” -switzr1

“ Not so special card at all, meh ” -hawksforever

“ Love it! Got to get me some of these! ” -bkklaos

“ Marvel has some questionable art lately. This is not too bad but some of their comics...horrible. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Avengers is an overrated movie. ” -carthage44

“ Cool Comic related card. I really wish the whole craze for comic book related movies and trading cards and a ton of other stuff had happened in the 1970s and '80s when I was really into all that stuff. Now I'm just sort of mildly interested in them not all gung-ho into them. ” -captkirk42

“ Dell'Otto has one of the more distinctive styles (without becoming stylized) as far as Marvel artists go. Love the covers, less of a fan of the interiors. ” -jackal726

“ Nice art work,great looking card. ” -uncaian

“ The Skrull invasion was a great idea since they could mimic the heroes and turn them against each other! ” -Joshua825

Set: 1985 Donruss Highlights (Rate)

Card: #49 Wade Boggs



“ Not the most likeable guy, but the boy could hit! Always great for the fantasy team, back when you had to use the USA Today for stats to crank out the standings! ” -bkklaos

“ No matter what era, the Sox unis still look good. ” -jlaz10

“ Even though this was the beginning of the Junk years I still like the 1980s sets. ” -captkirk42

“ So so good!!! ” -carthage44

“ Didn't like the idea for these sets back when they first came out and this was the first year of the "Highlights" set. I was just a teen, but I remember them being too "expensive" for my taste. I think the 55 card set (56 with the checklist) was priced about the same as the Topps Traded and Fleer Update sets (which were more than double the size at 132). Now, for player collectors, these are awesome sets to pull singles from. 17 of the 55 cards feature HOFers! ” -vrooomed

“ Somewhat inaccurate set of records, as Willie Keeler, Lloyd Waner and Jesse Burkett all had higher single-season singles totals than Willie Wilson when Boggs hit his 187. Wilson's 184 wasn't even a modern ML record as Waner's 198 was in 1927. Ichiro surpassed Boggs mark 3 times in his career and now hold the undisputed record with 225 singles in a season (2004). Either Donruss had bad information, or they were really trying to pad the set. ” -DaClyde

Set: 2011 Upper Deck College Football Legends (Rate)

Card: #73 Billy Sims



“ "Design? Just type something on the back of the card and we're done" ” -volbox

“ Another more modern UD failure. Chrome thing at bottom ugly and can't read "Billy Sims" looks like it says "Buly Sims". I don't like college cards either. I might have to not comment when the card of the day is a college card. ” -captkirk42

“ Is his name in that dark stripe somewhere? I have to assume this card looks a lot better in person. ” -switzr1

“ It would be sorta funny if he were running the wrong way ” -lxnlxn

Set: 2015 Topps Heritage - News Flashback (Rate)

Card: #NF-10 Sheila Scott



“ Now that's a cool non sport card. ” -uncaian

“ Cool! I have actually read about her in airplane magazines, I didn't know she had any cards. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Never heard of her! Can't say that anymore. I like it! Heading to Wikipedia now to read up on Sheila... ” -bkklaos

“ "The Scott Heard Round The World". Sorry for that historic pun. I love/hate the Flashback inserts for Heritage. I love the info they provide, but I hate having to chase after them every year. I also hate chasing the Heritage sets each year. Heck I'm just tired of chasing for set building. I have a ton of sets to build but very few actually completed. ” -captkirk42

“ I think I'm going to buy some of these... ” -SFC Temple

“ I don't see the relevance of this feat in an American card set. An American woman had already done this two years prior. ” -switzr1

“ And to think she started out as an actress! ” -lxnlxn

Set: 1999-00 Pacific - Home and Away (Rate)

Card: #4 Peter Forsberg



“ I have a feeling this one looks a lot better in hand than on my screen. I loved Pacific sets in this era, but don't remember the Home And Away name at all. ” -switzr1

“ True power forward one of the best to ever play.Not a bad looking card,the thing with Pacific was sometimes you couldn't tell the reg.issue from the inserts. ” -uncaian

“ Pacific always tried to give you a "futuristic" look but they almost always failed. ” -carthage44

“ Like all mirror-foil cards, this looks much better in person. I was given one of the cards from this set recently. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I don't understand the criteria for this insert set and the design is what one would come to expect out of an insert set in the late 90s, but Peter Forsberg is the man. ” -wax_house

“ I'm sure that chrome or hologram background looks a lot nicer in real life. It looks UGLY in that scan. I had to look at the checklist and do some googling to verify that they were indeed doing a "Home and Away" sort of concept here. 20 card insert set 10 players, cards 1-10 are their "Home" card, and 11-20 the "Away". Weird way to do that. Should have had Player One on cards 1 and 2 then Player Two on cards 3 and 4 etc... This way it is Player one on cards 1 and 11, Player two on cards 2 and 12 etc... How did they decide who to feature? The top 10 players maybe? It appears there are only 6 of 28 teams represented here. ” -captkirk42

Set: 2008 Rittenhouse Iron Man (Rate)

Card: #7 Christine Everhart



“ Nice card,didn't know there was a card company called Rittenhouse. ” -uncaian

“ The Avengers movie series has quickly become one of my favorites. So much so that I actually went to see the sequel in the theater earlier this year, the first time I've seen a movie on the big screen since 2008. The Iron Man movies were some of the weaker efforts in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, though not the worst. Even so, I've seen them multiple times already. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Thanks to my sons love of the Superheroes, I discovered Ironman was created the same year as I was born...yep, now my favorite Superhero! ” -bkklaos

“ Superhero movies are becoming a major overkill. ” -carthage44

“ Nice Non-Sport. ” -captkirk42

“ This may be the first COTD of a female since those Brats cards. I don't remember this character in this movie. I guess I would if I had collected the cards! ” -switzr1

“ Not a bad card for non sport, I wonder if it is the design or the pic? ” -hawksforever

Set: 1993 Bon Air Fire Engines (Rate)

Card: #65 1992 Spartan Gladiator Saulsburg Rescue Pumpe



“ This is so ridiculous I gotta like it! ” -switzr1

“ *blink* *blink* They'll make cards for anything won't they? ” -Mike67

“ I need that fire engines autograph ” -Young Kilo

“ I love this set. It came out when I was 8 years old, what 8 year old doesn't love fire trucks? I don't happen to have this card. Whoever posted the checklist though got it wrong, the set is actually 500 cards. It is the largest automotive themed set ever made, including auto racing, where the largest set is only 340 cards. (not counting insets/parallels/promos) ” -Billy Kingsley

“ This is going to be a little long - sorry. I know there will be a few "The early 90s, a card for Everything" comments, but I can assure you that there were fire (truck/man) sets a lot earlier than that. In the early 80s, I worked for a baseball card shop and the owner was a big time photographer. He had a hand in putting together a fire truck set (I think it had firemen as well) that I remember helping him sort into sets. That was probably around 1982 or 1983. ” -vrooomed

“ I have all the respect in the world for firemen, but damn I wish I had a job where I get paid when I'm sleeping (albeit always mindful that when the alarm sounds, it's time to earn that pay)! ” -bkklaos

“ COOL !! ” -uncaian

“ Everyone likes fire trucks! ” -carthage44

“ Ya know, when I click the drop-down menu and select "Write One", it's like getting a Christmas gift from a distant relative. Sure, it's shaped like a card, but it could really be anything. Sometimes, it's 1960s Topps baseball. And sometimes, it's this. ” -wax_house

“ Fire Trucks. When I first heard about one of these sets at first I thought it kind of odd. Then I remembered earlier sets of cars from the 1950s through the 70s and it wasn't so odd. ” -captkirk42

“ too cool ” -jackal726

“ Opening Day pitcher for the 1993 Fire Engines. ” -jlaz10

“ A copycat from the police, these were the thing for fire departments to have. Some departments actually used these for contest and kids could win a price. For volunteer deparments, the idea was to make the kids come to the station to get the last card in the set, where usually a well meaning member would try to sell mom/dad on joining. ” -engine614

“ Nice 1992 Spartan Gladiator Saulsburg Rescue Pumper RC....or is it an XRC? ” -flcardtrader
