Set: 1995-96 Stadium Club - Members Only 50 (Rate)

Card: #22 Glenn Robinson

“ Of the Stadium Club Members Only sets, this one- the last one- was my least favorite, design wise. That purple Bucks road jersey of Glenn Robinson was the first jersey I ever purchased a replica of to wear- unfortunately I got too fat to fit into it. Don't remember when I got it other than some time in 1996. And now his son is a NBA veteran in his second year...this card is from his second year, he was pick #1 in 1994. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Nice action photo on front, great head shot on back. I understand that this is more of a bonus set, but I need stats on my cards. ” -Kaline6

“ Glenn got an "F" on his report card? ” -addysdaddy

“ Never a big fan of the "members only" editions of Stadium Club (even some of the regular editions I'm not big on). This set is OK except for that silver foil sun Stadium Club logo whatever it is. ” -captkirk42

“ It defiantly wasn't worth being a member. ” -carthage44

Set: 2007-08 Upper Deck First Edition (Rate)

Card: #197 Emeka Okafor

“ Nice action photo, makes me a little dizzy though. I like full stats. What's with the double space printing? Reminds me of a high school term paper. ” -Kaline6

“ Good design, and for you foil haters, it's got none! (Not even a UD hologram) Emeka Okafor never really lived up to the expectations placed upon him, as the #2 pick in the 2005 draft, and the first in Bobcats history. He sat out last two seasons after suffering a serious injury in the season before, and remains a free agent with hopes of returning to the NBA- a difficult task for someone who has not played in several years. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Pretty nice set for Upper Deck. I prefer the First Edition set to the regular release. The regular release had the awful foil lettering you can't read (unless you are 13 or younger) this the names are in white usually against dark color backgrounds you can actually read. ” -captkirk42

“ Very nice back, nice back, really nice back. ” -NJDevils

“ I always liked the above the rim shots. Never understood the First Edition cards. Never seen a second edition. ” -EdTheStatMan

Set: 1982 Topps (Rate)

Card: #412 Toussaint Tyler

“ Love the basicness of the 80's design. ” -suomibear8

“ One of my favorite sets. Great front design. The blue-on-yellow back is hard to read, though. "Too-San" only lasted "two seasons". It wasn't a good time to be a Saint. ” -C2Cigars

“ Cool name. ” -dah15

“ The man even has "Saint" in his name! I like the Topps cards from the era before the proliferation of all the other brands. ” -Kaline6

“ one of my first set of football cards to collect. ” -addysdaddy

“ This was the first football card set I ever collected and I still think this is the best design Topps every had for a football set. I can remember buying rack pack after rack pack and sorting them endlessly! ” -cckeith

“ Nice pre-Junk Wax Years '80s card. Real cardboard too. ” -captkirk42

“ Love the 82s, though in person the numbers can be a difficult to read at times ” -NJdevils

“ Topps rocked the 80's with their football cards. ” -carthage44

“ My favorite NFL player with his team name in his first name, the Saint named Toussaint. ” -UKboogie

Set: 1993-94 Fleer PowerPlay (Rate)

Card: #486 Brett Lindros

“ Cool card! Odd proportions! I'm all a-twitter! ” -revnorb

“ If were Canadian, I'd LOVE this card! ” -domentho

“ Make room for the Tall Boys. ” -captkirk42

“ Could have had a really great career ,shame about the concussions.Not a bad set,nothing "eye popping" though. ” -uncaian

“ He didn't quite equal the talent of his older brother. ” -carthage44

Set: 2009-10 Panini Stickers (Rate)

Card: #319 Ryan O'Reilly

“ Pretty good design for a sticker. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ The 1989-90 NHL Panini sticker set pretty much started my collecting career and my youth hockey 'career'. I don't have any of these, but I do have a 14-15 complete in the book. ” -wax_house

“ Too much green. Looks like and old computer screen. ” -carthage44

“ Whoa a Panini Sticker! I think Panini should stick, pardon the pun, with just the stickers. ” -captkirk42

Set: 2004 Donruss Diamond Kings (Rate)

Card: #29 Garret Anderson

“ Too much border and DK logo, not enough player picture. ” -vrooomed

“ If it wasn't for the player's image getting in the way of the beautiful filigree and scroll work, this would be a beautiful card. Why do card companies waste so much space with player's images? Don't they know all we care about is tremendous amounts of design work. ” -C2Cigars

“ Pass ” -addysdaddy

“ Tried to rehash the Diamond Kings from to early 90's but they tried to class them up too much. ” -carthage44

“ I'm a big fan of the Diamond Kings art, but...Oh my! This looks terrible! ” -domentho

“ Whoah! My first thought here was that this was an old west wanted poster. "Have bat will travel." ” -koloth42

“ At first glance it looked like Ichiro in an Angels uniform. ” -EdTheStatMan

“ Hard to believe the back could be worse than the front. ” -NJDevils

Set: 2009 Grandstand Midland RockHounds (Rate)

Card: #NNO26 Gabe Ortiz

“ I like the design. The "Polaroid" against the grass background. The unique year & name font. The player's jersey on back. They all work for me. ” -C2Cigars

“ Interesting Minor League set. I thought this was a Sports Illustrated for Kids edition at first. ” -captkirk42

“ A postcard to let his friends know he won't be making it to the majors. ” -addysdaddy

“ By a million miles, the coolest minor league card I've ever seen. ” -wax_house

“ Polaroid in the grass. Very creative. ” -carthage44

“ I'm a big fan of MiLB sets and the individual cards. However, the font on the front in virtually unreadable to me. The back is fine although the "Baseball Club" looks very 2014 Donruss (where they don't have a license to use the team name). Meanwhile, other '09 GS sets were much nicer looking. ” -vrooomed

“ Not bad for a minor league card design. ” -koloth42

“ Can't tell if I like this or not? Probably on the not so much side. ” -Colts12

“ Never heard of this guy. ” -EdTheStatMan

Set: 2010 Upper Deck (Rate)

Card: #484 Dioner Navarro

“ Always liked Upper Deck cards. Like action photo's. I just wish they could get the whole player in the picture, not crop off a foot for example, and don't care for blank space on back of card. ” -Kaline6

“ Cards just need a border to look right in my opinion. ” -koloth42

“ not a fan, sorry UD ” -addysdaddy

“ Best thing - the series "2010 Upper Deck Baseball Series 1" is printed right on the card. ” -vrooomed

“ Would it kill companies to use a different photo on the reverse? ” -wax_house

“ I like the photography on these cards. The action shots are nice and the headshot on the bottom doesn't take anything away from the main photo ” -biggiofn7

“ For some reason I seem top like this set. Except for the difficulty to read the silver leaf printing. Hmmm didn't really notice the non-license thing for this set. I must have back 5 years ago but it didn't really bother me with this set for some reason. ” -captkirk42

“ This is when Upper Deck lost their MLB license and therefore could only use the city name not the team name. ” -carthage44

“ Nice card,when U.D. pulls in the reins they make nice product. Dioner plays for the Blue Jays now. ” -uncaian

“ Front's great. But do they really not have anything else for the back? Does he dig graves in the off-season? Is there one game that stood out? Ask me a trivia question. Anything but blank space. ” -Vvvergeer

Set: 1995 Upper Deck (Rate)

Card: #89 Darryl Strawberry

“ Great shot by Darryl ” -dah15

“ The foil name on the photo background is hard to read, even in person. Otherwise, not a bad design. ” -vrooomed

“ check out that grin..you know what he just got done doing.. ” -tonym

“ This was Upper Deck when it was on its way to being like the rest by making 100s of sub sets and parallels. no thanks UD. ” -addysdaddy

“ Bad photo choice. You can't read that name at all. ” -wax_house

“ An Upper Deck set I don't like. Also Darryl Strawberry looks weird in any uniform that isn't Mets. ” -captkirk42

“ He could have been one of the best if drugs didn't get in the way. ” -carthage44
