Random Card of the Day

Set: 1991-92 Upper Deck (Rate)

Card: #262 J.R. Reid

“ The first Upper Deck NBA set...a classic. The first card I ever traded for was J.R. Reid's base card from 1995-96 Topps. It's in poor shape and I've since upgraded but I still have the one I traded for. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Like the front some. The sideways stats on the back NO. ” -captkirk42

“ Again, the sideways stats on the back. Boooo! ” -NJDevils

“ Heck yea JR Reid! Decent player! ” -wax_house

“ Not sure what is happening on the back. Is he rebounding? Blocking a shot? Dunking with the worst aim imaginable? ” -Mitch

“ I have no idea what is going on with that picture on the back. ” -switzr1

“ The back picture looks like he's going to hurl the ball at the woman in the neck brace. Either way, this a clean, simple card that won't win any design awards but won't be added to the dumpster fire either. ” -ketchupman36

“ Pretty simple but solid design. ” -carthage44

“ I like the front. Court floor border. Lots of room for the picture. The back is another story. I like the backboard number. But could do without the picture in place of more stats/bio. ” -C2Cigars

Set: 1994 Upper Deck World Cup Contenders English/Spanish (Rate)

Card: #275 USA Women's Team

“ Their shirts look like they each have a towel on their right shoulder. ” -switzr1

“ My first card of the day. ” -deporcoruña

“ Well this is neat. Only player I have heard of is Mia Hamm, is she on here? Maybe #9. Nice perm #10!!! ” -RoyalChief

“ Nice to put only 11 in the photo. Heck with the rest of the team. ” -NJDevils

“ Cool card. U-S-A! U-S-A! U-S-A! ” -captkirk42

“ They're thrilled. ” -wax_house

“ Where is everyone? Only 11 players? ” -carthage44

Set: 1973 O-Pee-Chee (Rate)

Card: #650 Felipe Alou

“ The Alou brothers accounted for 5094 hits, 269 HR and 1656 RBI. Not bad. If you add Moises Alou stats, 7228 hits, 601 HR and 2943 RBI ” -volbox

“ I seem to remember when all 3 Alou brothers played outfield in the same game. I will have to look that up, but am sure someone else will mention it too. Classic Topps/O Pee Chee card. ” -Kaline6

“ His son, Moises, had a better career but Felipe had a very solid one. ” -carthage44

“ Love Vintage OPC cards. I don't have nearly enough of any sets of them. I should try to correct that someday. ” -captkirk42

“ Gotta admit, not a bad father son combo as far as stats go. both him and Moises were decent baseball players (though Moises was better) ” -DarkSide830

“ So many more words to repeat the same English phrase in French! Love the 1973s, by the way. My grandpa gave me a stack of the high numbers (Topps, not OPC, but same design) when I was pretty young, and for quite a while, they were the only cards I owned that were older than me. ” -switzr1

Set: 1999-00 Upper Deck MVP (Rate)

Card: #175 Mitch Richmond

“ This was the first set I completed from my current local card shop, back when it was new. Not really a huge fan of the design. This set replaced Collector's Choice in the lineup. He quietly built up a hall of fame career, and is currently 12th all time in scoring in NBA history- of about 4000 players. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ He's tall! The card is so nondescript, I've already forgotten it. ” -dilemma19

“ Mitch was Rich. ” -carthage44

“ Too much garbage on the front detracting from the photo. ” -NJDevils

“ Not a huge fan of the MVP sets, but this one is OK. Cant read the MVP part but whatever. The player name could be a bit bigger as the team name, a team logo would be nice also. Going to the back...OK ah there is the team logo. Looks a bit wasteful, turn it to a horizontal (landscape) card and add a short bio and/or cartoon and you got a nice back. ” -captkirk42

“ Not too bad. Nice, overall. The name, team, jersey #, MVP layout seems a little disjointed. I like it when a HOFer is Card of the Day. ” -C2Cigars

“ This set is alright. Inexpensive to buy at the time. I don't mind collecting the lower-priced stuff. ” -switzr1

Set: 1997 Bowman - International (Rate)

Card: #46 Dennis Eckersley

“ Not sure what makes this International, but the Flag design is cool. Looks like it's mirror foil which is always tough to scan. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Is this the original form of state and hometown? I do like the flag, and I will acknowledge how good of a pitcher Esk was. ” -DarkSide830

“ Eck was sick! ” -carthage44

“ Looks like Bowman Chrome Hehe. OK front, can't read it probably due to blurry scan, unless it's a chrome card. Back I really really do not like the stats against other teams. ” -captkirk42

“ Wow, completely forgot or never realized he played for the Cards. And of course, sweet stache!!! I kind of dig the American flag backdrop. ” -RoyalChief

“ Due to my 24-years of military service, I am fuming when I see these cards. Did Topps intentionally disrespect the US flag? Or are they just idiots? The blue union should always be displayed on the left. IMHO, every card in this set deserves a UER and should be rotated CCW to properly display the flag. I'm glad I never bought these, I would have shredded or burned them immediately. ” -C2Cigars

“ Eck doesn't look right in a Cards uniform. The card design is decent though. ” -dilemma19

“ This is a Cardinals card I have never seen. I want it. ” -switzr1

Set: 2002-03 Pacific (Rate)

Card: #260 Daniel Alfredsson

“ Nice looking card. I was a big fan of the Pacific sets of this time period, in all sports. ” -switzr1

“ This is my favorite team logo in all of sports...I'm a huge history nut, and I don't just mean that in the physical sense (LOL) Ancient history is my favorite, especially ancient Rome, which this is a direct reference to. If I followed hockey on a regular basis I would root for this team for no other reason. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ The heart of the Senators for many years. This set is ok nothing special , really. ” -uncaian

“ There is an extra S in his last name, wink wink. ” -carthage44

“ Pretty good front design except for player's name in silver foil. It doesn't stand out it is easier to read his dang position than either his name or the team name. Back is mostly good except bio should be fully below the stats not to the side with all that blank space that has the black and gray background team logo. ” -captkirk42

“ Pre shaggy-hair Alfie - with (possibly Darcy Tucker's) backside prominently pictured as a bonus. Nothing spectacular about it, but all the right things in all the right places. Overall a nice looking card. ” -dilemma19

“ Pacific hockey are so well-designed. A bit of an Upper Deck rip-off, but at half the price. ” -wax_house

“ I like the overall design, but there is too much blank space under his stats on the back. Otherwise I like the design. ” -DarkSide830

Set: 1964 Topps (Rate)

Card: #6 Jim Colclough

“ Great design. Great scan. I've never heard of this team although my football knowledge is subpar at best. The thought just hit me- perhaps this is the team I know of as a New England Patriots? ” -Billy Kingsley

“ This is a prank card, right? It was "Take Your Dad To Work Day" and Jim Colclough dressed his father up like a real football player. Alternate snark: This guy puts the "half" in "halfback" ” -jlamberth

“ "Hey Tom, is this the ball you wanted me to deflate?" This guy looks more like a presidential candidate than a pro football player. ” -switzr1

“ Ahhh 1964, when cards were cardboard, and skinny little men were NFL running backs. Classic card. ” -Kaline6

“ Another nice vintage card. ” -uncaian

“ Sweet...a football card (almost) as old as me! I don't have any from this set, but wish I did! ” -bkklaos

“ Love the vintage! ” -CluelessJoe

“ Cool Vintage Football. Back when there were two main leagues the NFL and this one the AFL. Topps had contracts with the AFL and Philadelphia Gum had the NFL. "Boston" Patriots they should have kept that name it is odd now that I think of it I think the "New England" Patriots are the only NFL team that uses their area not their city or state as part of their name. The Redskins should change their name as well to the "Mid Atlantic Redskins". ” -captkirk42

“ Football players sure have gotten bigger over the years! Would 6' 185lbs even qualify as a punter in today's NFL? ” -dilemma19

“ Come get some! ” -carthage44

“ To paraphrase Will Rogers, "I never met a vintage card I didn't like." Jim partnered with the Bruins' Derek Sanderson and Joe Namath to open the infamous "Bachelors III" restaurant/bar. ” -C2Cigars

Set: 2000 Topps Chrome (Rate)

Card: #127 Richard Hidalgo

“ Topps has come a long way with chrome. Its gone from this to the modern sets, which I believe to be much better. ” -DarkSide830

“ This card may represent the only occurrence of "Hidalgo" and "star-in-the-making" in the same sentence. ” -dilemma19

“ The back is the best part of this card. I'm sorry I have never been a huge Chrome fan. Moving on to the front the only thing I can read with any kind of ease is Mr. Hidalgo's name. I can almost read the Topps Chrome logo and is that a team logo on the bottom? Astros? ” -captkirk42

“ I like this set. Nice front of card that is not too complicated. Back of the card also has a simple design but has useful information and stats. They didn't overthink it. ” -Mitch

“ Maybe it's just the scan, but this seems pretty dull. More like some sort of pre-production test lacking detail. ” -jlamberth

“ Gotta love how you can see the dust on the scanner with chrome cards. ” -carthage44

“ It's Topps! It's Chrome! It's Fun! ” -Kaline6

“ i like this set. I really like the backs. ” -switzr1

Set: 2002 Fleer Maximum (Rate)

Card: #44 Keenan McCardell

“ I do like the team theme colors of this set. I do not like the missing stats. ” -SFC Temple

“ OK design except for the foil printing. Name should be larger and NOT foiled. The name oriented to the horizontal not the vertical would help. Back is OK but a short bio would fill up the extra space some. ” -captkirk42

“ The design leaves much to be desired but the player was a good one for many years. ” -carthage44

“ Not sure why that football player is blocking my view of the bright yellow extension cord. Can't stop looking at the cord.... About Keenan McCardell: The name sounds familiar, but I would have liked to read something interesting about him on the back of his card. Instead, I get abbreviated stats and several logo shields. Too bad. ” -dilemma19

“ Maximum? Yes, maximum border equals minimum interest. ” -C2Cigars

“ Not digging that front ” -DarkSide830

“ Good looking set. I like colorful borders where they aren't all the same color. ” -switzr1

“ This is a card with a lot of teal space, if you are into that than this is a card for you. ” -UKboogie

Set: 1979 Topps (Rate)

Card: #154 Brian Baschnagel

“ I hate 1970s Topps football because they only had the contract for the players, and not the teams. Thus, they could not show emblems. Fleer owned the rights to the team emblems. So annoying. ” -cjjt

“ 19 different schools? I thought I got moved around a lot. I didn't attend the same school for consecutive full years until 6th & 7th grades. But 19 is crazy! Oh yeah, I like the card too. ” -switzr1

“ Classic Topps. Been collecting Topps FB since 1969, what am I going to collect in 2016? ” -Kaline6

“ I had some of these back in the day. Back when people heard you collected cards and would hand you whatever they found. I had FB, hockey, E.T., and probably others and sold most of them to classmates. Don't remember this particular player - at all. ” -vrooomed

“ love the vintage.. plus he's got the Darth Vader look going ” -tonym

“ You can't spell Baschnagel without B-A-G-E-L. Actually, despite starting with five of the letters (in the correct order), I still have problems spelling Baschnagel. 3 years into his NFL career, and I see that young Brian was already digging deep for "fun facts" card-back material... ” -dilemma19

“ This is the set that started my affliction. I'm not sure how I wound up with them; parents picked them up at a garage sale I suppose. I would sit for hours, just flipping through them, reading the stats and narratives. I didn't really know what it all meant, but I loved em. ” -SFC Temple

“ Love this set! Brings back lots of memories of my love of NFL football in my youth and my love of trading card collecting! ” -bkklaos

“ Cool Vintage/semi-vintage Football. I know next to nothing about this guy. I do like the cards with the airbrushed helmets. As a kid I didn't know the reason for them being like that I just thought is was because all the photos for cards were taken pre-season and they were practice helmets since they didn't bother to put the logo stickers on them. Ha it was because of weird copyright laws/rules. Yet back then they could use the team nicknames. Today no license no logos OR names. ” -captkirk42

“ TIGHT!!! ” -carthage44

“ I like the card. Even though he was on Injured Reserve the entire 1985 season he still got a Super Bowl ring. ” -C2Cigars

“ I sorta like the to-the-point design. ” -DarkSide830
