Set: 1995-96 Fleer (Rate)

Card: #347 Bryant Reeves

“ The 1995-96 Fleer set holds so many memories for me. It was a pack of series 2 (of which this card is from) that my mom brought home that got me started collecting basketball cards- 18 years and over 75,000 different NBA cards later (!) I'm still collecting, although not at the levels I once did. This subset highlighted a player from each team, and Bryant "Big Country" Reeves was the face of the Vancouver Grizzlies, the franchise's first ever draft pick. He had a very short career- only six years. The Vancouver Grizzlies lasted the same amount of time- they moved to Memphis between the 2000-01 and 2001-02 season. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Bryant "Big Country" Reeves was drafted 6th overall by the Vancouver Grizzlies during the 1995 NBA Draft. He spent his entire career there (1995-2001). Career Stats: 4,945 Points (12.5 PPG), 2,745 (6.9 RPG) and 302 Blocks (0.8 BPG). He got the nickname Big Country from college teammate at Oklahoma State Byron Houston, who said Reeves was amazed following his first flight across the US. Reeves currently lives in his hometown of Gans, Oklahoma and owns a large cattle ranch. ” -carthage44

“ First 3 years he averages 13-7, 16-8 and 16-7. Signs 61 million dollar contract. Next 3 years he goes 10-5, 8-5, 8-6 and retires. Thank you guarantee money ” -Young Kilo

“ Yikes! Way to busy a card for me. ” -koloth42

“ I don't really care for the card layout, it screams 1990s overkill graphics. The Vancouver Grizzlies logo however I always enjoyed, it reminds me of a Jack Kirby drawing. ” -Gunny

“ This screams early-to-mid 90s. I'm sure a number of graphic designers have tried to drink away memories of this time. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ This uniform pretty much sums up the '90s. ” -jlaz10

“ "...and THAT'S when I discovered Photoshop, doctor!" ” -revnorb

“ Big Country! ” -jackal726

“ Who? Great picture of his bald spot. ” -yokonashiwa

“ Not a fan of oddly-named, meaningless subsets within the base set, as an excuse to make a second (or third or fourth, etc) card of a guy. Firm Foundation certainly qualified. There was a LOT of this in basketball in the early-to-mid nineties. Way too much going on with the design too. ” -switzr1

Set: 1981 O-Pee-Chee (Rate)

Card: #11 Paul Mirabella

“ Does anyone else see a resemblance to Mario from Super Mario Brothers? ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Mirabella played from 1978-1990 with the Rangers (two different times), Yankees, Blue Jays, Orioles, Mariners and Brewers. Career Stats: 19 Wins, 29 Losses, 4.45 ERA and 258 Strikeouts. Mostly a relief pitcher during his career but he did start 33 games including one shutout. ” -carthage44

“ Always loved OPC. I think it was because of the white stock (as opposed to the gray Topps stock). ” -vrooomed

“ Beautiful card. O-Pee-Chee was great when it made baseball cards. I like the powder blue unis too. ” -jlaz10

“ I like the hat, but I'd rather it had the team logo ” -jackal726

“ Putting the team name in a little baseball cap in the corner probably sounded like a great idea at the annual design meeting... ” -revnorb

“ Ah yes, the sophisticated bilingualism of Canadian trading cards... ” -Howintensive

Set: 2009 Press Pass (Rate)

Card: #81 Carl Edwards

“ Carl had become my second favorite active driver, but isn't anymore, since he decided to use his car as a weapon. Rumors abound that he will leave Roush-Fenway Racing (Yes, the same Fenway as the Boston Red Sox) at the conclusion of 2014. The 2009 set was a decent one from Press Pass- probably their second best effort, after the 2011 set. The only time Press Pass ever bothered to issue a series 2, although this card is from series 1. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Didn't he just win a race last Sunday? ” -volbox

“ I wonder if it bothers Carl that he has a duck on his fire suit. ” -koloth42

“ Aflac. ” -jlaz10

“ This is kind of like having a Derek Jeter card with the caption proclaiming that Utz Potato Chips just bought a new billboard in right field. ” -revnorb

“ This is a highlight in this guys career? Aflac becoming the Primary Sponsor. Of course, I don't really watch or follow NASCAR, so I could be wrong about this being a big highlight. ” -yokonashiwa

“ Just turn left, Carl ” -Hollywod42

“ He looks just like his car! ” -Luckynumber78

“ Maybe it's my color blindness, but I can't read the word before Forward on the front. Totally blends in with his sleeve. That makes a bad card. ” -switzr1

Set: 2007-08 Upper Deck (Rate)

Card: #133 Mike Dunleavy Jr.

“ I'm not sure how the Pacers could think these jerseys could be better than the blue and yellow pinstripes that came immediately before them. I don't have many from this set, I was away from the hobby at the time. I sure do miss UD's complete stats including career high game, too. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Dunleavy was drafted out of Duke during the 2002 NBA Draft (3rd overall) by the Golden State Warriors. He currently plays for the Chicago Bulls but he has played for the Warriors, Pacers and Bucks. Career Stats: 839 Games, 11.9 Points Per Game, 4.5 RPG and 2.4 APG. During his 3 years at Duke, Dunleavy played with other NBAers Carlos Boozer (current teammate w/Bulls), Shane Battier, Chris Duhon, Daniel Ewing and Jason Williams. ” -carthage44

“ Despite a generic font, the Pacers unis are pretty nice. ” -jlaz10

Set: 2011 Topps Lineage (Rate)

Card: #40 Stan Musial

“ Stan Musial was a great player. ” -yokonashiwa

“ It's great you can see the stripes on his socks. What's up with the border on the right hand side, though? ” -revnorb

“ Great stirrups! ” -jlaz10

“ Staaaaaaan! Also, why does the Cardinals logo look almost orange? It may just be me. ” -Howintensive

Set: 2002 Topps Traded & Rookies (Rate)

Card: #T144 Ben Howard

“ I don't really like all these extended sets. Just include them in next year's set instead of creating these XRC's and all these new parallels. ” -suomibear8

“ Interesting border color! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ One of Topps worst designs - EVER. ” -vrooomed

“ The Padres just can't shake their association with the color brown... ” -revnorb

“ These Padres unis were so bare. Needed more color. ” -jlaz10

“ Only survivor of Mike Darr's fatal crash since he was wearing a seatbelt. ” -volbox

Set: 1967 Topps (Rate)

Card: #184 George Thomas

“ I think the '67 design is pretty solid. I like the big team name, although i dunno why "RED SOX" should be in orange. Rotating the signature at a crazy angle so it fits over the white of his jersey and is therefore legible is kinda weird. I'd say this is maybe the fourth-best baseball card design of the 1960's, behind 1963-65. ” -revnorb

“ I was always impressed by his defensive performance at Chickamauga. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ Great set! My father bought me this set for my birthday 30+ years ago. Thanks Dad! ” -CluelessJoe

“ Ah, the last set that I truly collected in my youth. Brings back great memories. I think I completed about half the set when I started chasing girls instead of Joe Pepitone. ” -NJdevils

“ Classic Sox! ” -jlaz10

“ Nice clean card. Picture is great and the signature doesn't cover anything important. Back has great information and I especially like the list of years played and the team name and stats. ” -yokonashiwa

“ My favorite Topps baseball set of the 60s, for sure. Such a simple but effective design. So much of the card front is dedicated to the photograph, yet we know who he is and who he played for too. I can overlook the pointless facsimile signature because everything else is just about perfect. ” -switzr1

“ 67 Topps is a work of frills - just the picture accompanied with name, position, auto, and team...nice! ” -flcardtrader

“ This is my second favorite set of the 1960s (1965). The vertical format on the back was a nice change of pace. ” -vrooomed

Set: 2013 Topps Detroit Tigers (Rate)

Card: #DET9 Phil Coke

“ This is a normal brain. This is your brain on Phil Coke. ” -Howintensive

“ I don't know about the absence of a team name, but it's nice how the "D" logo on his jersey matches the card logo. Also, it looks like someone played Ring Around the Rosie with his head. ” -revnorb

“ I liked this Topps design although I have to admit that it had to grow on me. Nice solid action shot, minimal border. I've never heard of Phil before today but hey he is living his dream as a MLB pitcher so my hat is off to him. ” -koloth42

“ Like the design but could do without the silly career chase line on the backs. Most of the photography is sharp. And these Team Sets are real nice for the team collectors (like me) - especially when they contain players who weren't in the main Topps set (just like the late 70s Burger King team sets). ” -vrooomed

“ If you look closely, you'll see that the Tigers have two different D-logos: one on their caps and one on their jerseys. ” -jlaz10

“ If they're going to do these I wish they'd make something different about the card (besides the #) ” -jackal726

“ You would think he could have had a great endorsement deal with that last name. ” -yokonashiwa

Set: 2008 Upper Deck (Rate)

Card: #84 Matt Jones

“ Big time draft bust. He was one of the first few former QBs who converted to WR. Everyone thought he would be the answer for Jacksonville, but he just got in trouble with the law and disappeared. Good looking picture, though. ” -Howintensive

“ Example #34 why foil is a bad idea on cards. ” -DaClyde

“ Upper Deck has again succeeded in disguising the player's name and team. ” -NJdevils

“ Huge picture. Simplistic front. Plenty of room on the back for information. I like it. ” -yokonashiwa

“ Crack is whack ” -jackal726

“ The Jaguars can't seem to find a good look. They're current duds aren't ugly, though. ” -jlaz10

“ "I once had a pile of cocaine, thiiiiiiiiis big!" ” -UNC_Samurai

Set: 2007 Topps Heritage (Rate)

Card: #341 Pittsburgh Pirates

“ Thumbs down Topps Heritage. ” -addysdaddy

“ Looks like something a little league team gets done at the end of the season for a souvenir. ” -revnorb

“ Great team photo on the front. This is what the front of team cards should look like! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I like team cards, and the Buccos are my favorite baseball team. However, this card I do not really care for all that much. The big yellow border just looks dreadful. ” -Gunny

“ I still like team cards. ” -vrooomed

“ The vested Pirates! A look they should have kept. ” -jlaz10

“ I liked team cards when I was a kid, but as an adult I'm glad they are less frequent now. ” -jackal726

“ Team cards have always been my favorite type of card. I like getting them because not everyone on the team got a card. This way, you get all the players even if it is on one card. Always thought that a team card should be part of every team related sport's base card set. ” -yokonashiwa
