Set: 1989 Mother's Cookies Houston Astros (Rate)

Card: #13 Danny Darwin



“ Nice food product card. They left a space for autographs, assuming the kids would rush to the ballpark to get their favorite player's autos. Would have been cooler if they had commissioned the signatures from the players they included in this set. Come on it was only one team. Not sure how widespread the brand was to cater to more markets/teams. ” -captkirk42

“ I like how they put a spot on the back of the card where the player can sign the card. A nice little touch. ” -carthage44

“ Good old Mother's Cookies. Always had the same look. I like that in a small-time company. ” -vrooomed

“ Oh, Mother's Cookies. I love it! And look at all those empty seats at Dodger Stadium. Must only be the second inning. ” -switzr1

“ Borderless cards way before it was novel. Nothing fancy, but I like it. ” -dilemma19

Set: 1933-34 World Wide Gum (Rate)

Card: #12 Nels Stewart



“ Wow! Incredible vintage card. My grandparents were too young to walk yet when this card was made. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Too cool , awesome card . ” -uncaian

“ love the old time card/design, but this reminds me of something out of a Stephen King flick..eeeek! ” -tonym

“ I'm not a hockey collector but I wouldn't mind having this card. Love the old stuff! ” -CluelessJoe

“ Awesome! Would love to have a "token" one of these in my collection! ” -bkklaos

“ Looks like they put a picture of a guys head on a painted body. ” -carthage44

“ "Old Poison", cool nickname. The NHL's career goal scoring leader when he retired in 1940. Even though the card is very plain and simple. Even a bit drab, I still love vintage. Back when they only cared about giving the fans a picture of their favorite players. Not a bunch of crappy, glitzy, graphic designs. ” -C2Cigars

“ VINTAGE LOVE!!! 'Nuff said. ” -captkirk42

“ Super super card! ” -NJDevils

“ never seen this set before since I am not a hockey guy, but I like it ” -mzentko

“ Why does it seem like the primary focus of this is to appeal to French-speaking Canadians, then the text was translated into English. I can barely understand it. ” -DarkSide830

“ Coolness. ” -vrooomed

Set: 1994 Stadium Club - Members Only Parallel (Rate)

Card: #DD5 Jack McDowell



“ That may be the worst card back I've ever seen...yikes! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I like some of this and hate some of this. It is typical 1990s weird design this time sort of cut & paste scrapbook look. I hate the stamped foil logos. The logo on the right is definitely the Topps Stadium Club logo I can read that semi-OK the one of the left I think is the "Members Only" I can barely read the "Only" part the "Members" part looks like some weird horizontal fern-leaf design. Back cute pun cartoon. ” -captkirk42

“ What a fun card! Enormous rock-star Jack McDowell is hitting the puny batter with an enormous electric guitar, and if the guitar doesn't knock him over, the noise from those middle infielders certainly will. Very unique leg kick in the front photo. I can't recall any pitchers tucking their front foot in so tightly. Obviously it served him well for a few dominant years... ” -dilemma19

“ The back of the card has a negative barometric pressure. I hate the mixed "fonts" on the front; labelmaker, typewriter, embossed. Looks like some kid pieced this together in his bedroom. ” -C2Cigars

“ I do not like the graphics on this one Dugout? Dirt? Jack? McDowell. Looks like the committee of Members Only could not agree. Need some new members. ” -NJDevils

“ ...I'm confused. ” -DarkSide830

“ "Black Jack" McDowell loved the Chin Music! ” -carthage44

“ I never had a Members Only card. I wasn't a member of the Stadium Club. Or any other clubs that I can recall. ” -switzr1

“ I have no idea what the back has to do with the front but if I had a Dymo label maker I would type "trash" and stick it to this card. ” -UKboogie

“ Not sure who Topps was trying to appeal to with the back--5 year-olds? ” -cjjt

Set: 1997 Finest (Rate)

Card: #330 Chipper Jones



“ Good scan for a Finest. I really liked the two Finest sets they did in this style. My favorites of the brand. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ He was a Master of the game! ” -carthage44

“ First time I've seen one with the protective coating peeled off! They do look a lot nicer, but can't bring myself to do it! ” -bkklaos

“ Nice looking card of a quiet legend. I love the "fun fact" element on the back, and can almost overlook the missing stats. ” -dilemma19

“ Nice overall card. Not big on the finest semi-chrome concept but then again not a fan of Chipper either so I guess it balances out. ” -captkirk42

“ First, thank you jringolaughlin for removing the protective film. I HATE cards with the protective coating left on. And the scans of those cards. Such an awful visual detractor. The protective film only makes these ugly cards even uglier. The back has a much nicer look. Chipper was a great player. He should be a first-ballot selection to the HOF in 2018. I also love and respect any player that spends their entire career with one team. ” -C2Cigars

“ Man, I LOATHE Chipper. Don't get me wrong, he was an amazing player, but he was also the guy who hit two three-run walk-off homers in one season a few years ago (Maybe 2011 or 2012) against the Phillies. Likely a first-ballot Hall-of-Famer when he gets onto the ballot. ” -DarkSide830

Set: 2001-02 Pacific Private Stock - Retail (Rate)

Card: #66 Daniel Alfredsson



“ I actually like this card. ” -switzr1

“ One of the most beloved Senators of all time , shame it ended on semi sour note . This set's not too bad , have definitely seen worse, but it's nothing special. ” -uncaian

“ The card looks washed out. The fancy script font is too big and not easily read. I prefer more stats and bio on the backs; not another picture. ” -C2Cigars

“ An OK design. Prefer regular text print for players name not script text. Team name is there but it is also nice to see a team logo somewhere in the design and not rely on the player's uniform. Back too much script text This is a trading card not an engraved invitation to some fancy affair. And only one year of stats and career total? ” -captkirk42

“ Looks like it's snowing in the background. ” -carthage44

“ A Private Stock Malt Liquor sponsored hockey set? Talk about targeting a different demographic! ” -UKboogie

Set: 1983 Los Angeles Dodgers Police (Rate)

Card: #12 Rick Monday



“ Big fan of sets like this. I have way too few in my current collection. ” -switzr1

“ Interesting that this card came up on a Monday to write about! I have a love/hate relationship with regional promos. On the one hand, they are great when you have them...but trying to find them for your collection can be nearly impossible for some issues. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ The front is too plain for me, but I can handle the back at least. ” -DarkSide830

“ I wish the police still gave out cards to the public. ” -carthage44

“ Any real police card tells me not to do drugs or don't talk to strangers on the back. No wonder LA has problems. ” -RoyalChief

“ I like to look at an image and guess what it is before actually reading the card name. Here's one where as soon as I saw the card, I said, "Police Issue". They do have a standard format, don't they? This is a great early 80s card. ” -vrooomed

“ nice police card, plain and simple. I don't like oversize cards for the most part due to storage challenges, but good for team/player collectors ” -mzentko

“ Nice Police card. Way back when I used to love finding these, but since they are usually "tall boys" it wasn't til more recently that there were proper binder pages for them. ” -captkirk42

“ I've always liked Rick Monday, especially after he grabbed the American flag and ran off with it before a couple of moron "protesters" could burn it in the Dodger outfield! ” -cckeith

“ I always liked him from his Oakland A's days. But, for me he cemented "Hero" status when he saved an American flag from being burned. ” -C2Cigars

Set: 1990 Donruss (Rate)

Card: #668 Bill Landrum



“ I like this design other than the player's name on the front- it just doesn't work for me. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ If anyone is missing this card from their collection, let me know, I probably have 30. I liked this set back then, and it sure was plentiful. ” -vrooomed

“ This is what happens when card companies give there family member who's fresh out of rehab a job designing cards. ” -Young Kilo

“ I'm surprised we dont see more of this set for COTD. I don't collect baseball cards and I STILL have a million of these :) ” -SFC Temple

“ I have to say, this is a very logical, clean design. ” -DarkSide830

“ WOW, what a breakout year for this guy in 1989. Check his stats on the back. ” -carthage44

“ My wife's response on seeing this set for the first time, "did they mean to make them that color?" A very memorable set, but only for the background color. ” -Mitch

“ Say what you will about this set (and the 91 Fleer All Yellow set) but I still like this set. The simplicity of a uniform design and color doesn't happen much anymore. It helps identify cards from the set. The problem with many of the sets now is there are so many different elements for sub-sets that it is difficult to know what is what anymore. ” -captkirk42

“ A very bland looking card that somehow still manages to look dated. ” -ketchupman36

“ 1990 Donruss has grown on me. I wasn't a fan at release, but I really like them today. And Bill was coming off a really good season for the Pirates, coming out of nowhere to post some very respectable numbers for a pretty bad team. ” -switzr1

Set: 2010 Topps Supreme - Autographed Dual Relics Blue (Rate)

Card: #SADR-EM Eli Manning



“ Wow, impressive card. Although I'm pretty clueless when it comes to football, even I know who he is. Interesting that the two rarest cards as Card of the Day have both been in the past week. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ A fine QB, with a couple Super Bowl rings. He still didn't look too thrilled when Peyton won his 2nd. ” -Kaline6

“ Why couldn't he center his signature? Or Topps if they inserted it into the card. He couldn't of been tired and rushing through, there is only five of them. ” -RoyalChief

“ WOW, super rare card. NICE!!! ” -carthage44

“ Dictionary.com "relic" : 'a surviving memorial of something past. 2. an object having interest by reason of its age or its association with the past: a museum of historic relics. Yes, a real relic of Eli. ” -NJDevils

“ Is that on-card auto? 1/5 cool. I'm not a relic fan so whatever with that. Is that rubber from a ball tee? Shoe soul? Ball bladder? Can't read the fine letters around that say "game used xxx" ” -captkirk42

Set: 2005 Donruss Champions - Impressions Gold (Rate)

Card: #314 Shannon Stewart



“ not sure i like this one..looks like a football field.. to much white- left a lot of room for more design ” -tonym

“ My impression is "What are you saving the right half for?" ” -vrooomed

“ I'm pretty sure the wasted space on the right side of the card is for a piece of jersey but for this base issue it's very bland. ” -carthage44

“ Lots of wasted space in this one.. Make the card vertical, enlarge the picture of Stewart, and rotate the logos and there you go.. ” -Mike67

“ I'm usually not a fan of horizontal (landscaped) cards but I love this series/set. ” -captkirk42

“ I like the card. I liked the player. Not so fond of the cheesy early-2000s Blue Jays logo. Looks like there's something missing on the right half. A relic would have fit nicely there. ” -dilemma19

“ Impressive and modern-looking. ” -Quinn820

“ This looks like they forgot to put someone on the right side of the card. Strange design with that big open space. ” -Mitch

“ I'm guessing all that empty space means there is an autograph or relic parallel for this set out there as well. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ wow, seems to have space for another player on the right? ” -mzentko

“ Love this set! Like the colors and parallels and relics from this set! ” -Joshua825

“ at least there are only 50 of them ” -UKboogie

Set: 1992-93 St. John's Maple Leafs AHL (Rate)

Card: #NNO Nick Wohlers



“ Not bad,I thought it was a sticker at first.Did this guy make it to the big leagues? ” -uncaian

“ I find the team logo on the back to be very dynamic! There's really nothing else worth saying about this card, nor its subject. ” -dilemma19

“ They spelled defense wrong on the back, LOL! ” -carthage44

“ The big question is this. Defence or Defense? ” -RoyalChief

“ Nice minor league card. Thought it was a Police card at first. ” -captkirk42

“ Cold as ice design, nice photo. ” -Thomas_Kava
