Set: 2002 Upper Deck Vintage (Rate)

Card: #23 Alex Gonzalez

“ Wait...isn't that a Topps design on the front? ” -Billy Kingsley

“ This is the guy that caused the Cubs to implode during the 2003 NLCS because of his fielding error. It's very sad that Cubs fans still blame Bartman when they should be blaming this guy because he couldn't field a routine ground ball in the 8th inning and the Cubs would have avoided the historic collapse. ” -carthage44

“ Don't have to worry about dripping mustard on the back of this card ” -NJdevils

“ Upper Deck Vintage The Original Archives LOL. When they first came out I hated them, I was in an anti-reprints, anti-retro look phase of my collecting. Now I love them. ” -captkirk42

“ The Blue Jays try with red didn't work out as well as planned. ” -jlaz10

“ One of the many design re-makes...this of the 1971 Topps set. I like the 71 set design, but this is so clean compared to the 71. ” -suomibear8

Set: 2001 Topps (Rate)

Card: #715 Emil Brown

“ I wonder whom it was that decided two curvy corners and two square corners looked cool. That person was a dope. ” -revnorb

“ I love the way they used the "skull & crossbones" to create a logo. ” -C2Cigars

“ Love how Topps always give you a ton of information and stats on the back of their cards. ” -carthage44

“ This Anniversary set came out during my card hiatus. I first saw it when I got a ton of Expos cards in 2005/06 for cheap on ebay in a priority mail flat rate box. A medium sized one if I recall correctly. I hated this design at first. It might have been that I had about 1/2 a dozen Felipe Alou from this set and no Vlads from it. Now like many of the 1990s sets I like it now. ” -captkirk42

“ A good set by Topps, front and back....and easy to read numbers. Now I am nit-picking, I prefer the numbers in the upper let corner. ” -NJdevils

“ Not only do I prefer the numbers in the upper "let" corner, I like them in the upper "left" too. ” -NJdevils

“ Not Topps' worst effort. Certainly nowhere near their best. ” -vrooomed

Set: 1977 San Diego Padres Schedule Cards (Rate)

Card: #NNO Glenn Beckert

“ This is actually pretty cool,especially if you were a Padres dedicated fan. ” -uncaian

“ Great concept. Didn't know these existed. ” -vrooomed

“ For some reason I like those 70s Mustard and Brown uniforms much better than anything they have had since. The Gold and Blue the wear a lot now does not suit them I always think they are the Brewers in blue. ” -captkirk42

“ Cool card, you get a player and a list of the special events on the back. They should bring these back! ” -carthage44

“ So Glenn's just happy to be there, right? Oh wait, he's an actual player... ” -Mihome316

“ You can never have to many cards!!! ” -BIGPOPA4U2NV

Set: 1993 Maxx Premier Plus (Rate)

Card: #175 Bill Elliott

“ What year was this card made? ” -switzr1

“ What year is this??? ” -volbox

“ Nice run of NASCAR lately. Something nobody acknowledges, but Maxx actually had a Chrome card out around the same time - if not before- Topps did. Hot Wheels actually did beat Topps to the market with a Chrome card. Elliott would continue to win the Most Popular Driver award every year except 2001, when Dale Earnhardt won it posthumously, until Elliott retired from full-time competition. Dale Earnhardt Jr. has won it every year since. Elliott's son Chase became NASCAR's youngest champion last year when he won the 2nd level title in his first year. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I think they need a few more 93's on the card just so everyone understands what year the card is, LOL! ” -carthage44

“ Why does this make me think Partridge Family? ” -captkirk42

“ Best photo of a chain link fence in the history of card collecting. ” -NJDevils

“ Are we positive this card is from '93? ” -ShoTime

Set: 2005 Topps Updates & Highlights (Rate)

Card: #UH325 Jay Bruce

“ I really should pick up this set. ” -captkirk42

“ I am glad baseball cards (Topps) finally changed the way their rookie cards are distributed. Cards like this one are distributed soon after being drafted. Jay Bruce has turned out well but so many other draft picks do not pan out yet their cards are still out there. They are worthless. ” -carthage44

“ In the red bar at the top it says he was drafted by the Braves (presumably an error), but in the text it says he was drafted by the Reds. ” -jackal726

“ The Reds black phase. Every team had one, but it just didn't work for the Reds. Their colors should be red and white, per the Big Red Machine. ” -jlaz10

Set: 2008 Bowman Draft Picks & Prospects - Chrome Prospects (Rate)

Card: #BDPP24 Xavier Avery

“ Whoa, that looks very pointy. I'd be afraid I'd take my eye out. ” -ShoTime

“ Say that name 5 times, really fast! ” -cckeith

“ Ugly design. Too much going on. Chrome cards are tough to scan, too. ” -suomibear8

“ One of the Bowman sets that made me Hate Bowman and Bowman Chrome. I don't hate them as much as I used to but for several years the Bowman Checklist is VERY DIFFICULT to decipher. I never can tell when a Prospect is a "Prospect" or a "Rookie Prospect". Don't make 3 and 4 level "subsets" that look EXACTLY ALIKE and then number them with confusing letter combinations that make little sense. Then to make matters worse each year you only subtly change the design so several years worth of sets blend together to confuse the average collector. ” -captkirk42

“ I like the design, and the scan is excellent, which is difficult to do with Chrome cards. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Worst numbering system in the history of card collecting. Got rid of most of mine just so I wouldn't have to deal with it. ” -NJDevils

“ Does anyone collect Bowman? The only people I see buying Bowman are speculators and PC player completests. ” -jackal726

“ Whoever comes up with these Bowman designs needs to be publicly shamed! ” -mkaz80

“ Sorry to say, the back looks better then the front :(. Im just not big on this set. ” -engine614

“ The original templated BP top. Color loops around the armpits, piping up the shoulders. Began the MLB trend of institutionalized uniforms. ” -jlaz10

“ Pretty cool looking design, but man there are so many subsets! ” -Joshua825

“ Spitting out cards just because you can doesn't mean you should, Topps. ” -carthage44

“ Not a bad looking design. I'm not sure I have any cards from this set. I would suppose that there are dozens of parallel versions of this card. Or maybe they weren't going quite so overboard with parallels yet in 2008. ” -switzr1

Set: 1996 Studio (Rate)

Card: #130 Michael Tucker

“ I don't really understand the appeal of the Studio sets, especially the first couple. They reminded me of a mix between those sepia tone old west photos and a Covershots photo shoot in the mall. ” -Id8jlb8666

“ Can we get a close-up next time? Yeah, who needs stats. ” -NJDevils

“ Don't like this design, especially the back. I did like Tucker when he was with the Royals though. ” -jupiterhill

“ Studio to me was either really good or really bad.This was definately BAD. ” -engine614

“ Too much face. ” -carthage44

“ How bizarre. The crop off the top of his head but give us plenty of neck? OK then! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ The Royals unis just don't look the same without rups. ” -jlaz10

“ For some reason I don't really like the Studio sets. I do sometimes like sets that are similar though, I don't know why I have a beef against the Studio brand. ” -captkirk42

Set: 1997 Playoff First & Ten (Rate)

Card: #135 Charlie Jones

“ Playoff tried here and failed! ” -carthage44

“ Charlie, eyes on the ball. Nice use of Easter Egg colors on the front and back. ” -NJdevils

“ Eeah not sure about this card/set. The "digital" lettering and numbering might have been cool if this had been made about 10-15 years before but sigh it is a later years junk era when designs were terrible. ” -captkirk42

“ It's so odd to see a uniform from less than 20 years ago with sleeves that actually cover his shoulders. ” -jlaz10

“ Looks like a fumble about to happen ” -jackal726

Set: 1997 Pacific - Silver (Rate)

Card: #89 Jeff Hill

“ That look on his face on the back of the card says it all, about the Bengals and this set. Cheer up there buddy, it could have been worse. At least you weren't stuck playing for the Browns. ” -Id8jlb8666

“ I usually like the Pacific sets, this one though? Not so much. That is typical 1990s for you usually pretty good but a few awful designs. Most suffered with too much flashy silver or gold foil/leaf as does many sets today. ” -captkirk42

“ Solid all-around card. ” -carthage44

“ I feel like Pacific gets a bad rap. They released some really nice sets. ” -wax_house

“ I'd rather see all the stats lines. I really want ot like this set, but can't ” -SFC Temple

“ I bought tons of Pacific cards back in the 90s, but I do not remember this set design at all. ” -switzr1

“ Who? ” -EdTheStatMan

Set: 1992-93 Collect-A-Card Harley Davidson (Rate)

Card: #34 67 Electra Glide

“ Pretty lame to not have the card color scheme be black and orange like the H-D logo... ” -revnorb

“ Electra glide sounds like either a razor or lubricant. ” -Id8jlb8666

“ I miss the early 1990s, when everything got cards. I just added my first cards from this set in March of this year. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Early 90s - A card for EVERYTHING. ” -vrooomed

“ Loud Harley's are the WORST! So annoying. Check out the South Park episode where they make fun of Harley drivers. It's so funny and true! ” -carthage44

“ Remember folks don't trash these 90s cards REcycle. LOL. OK lame joke but it was all I had for this. ” -captkirk42

“ This is cool, but where's my '72 Javelin with Pierre Cardin interior? ” -jackal726

“ Sounds like a new razor from Gillette. ” -DaClyde

“ I have two friends that ride, are huge Harley fans, and actually have one! I on the other hand don't even know how to ride (sadly)! ” -bkklaos

“ Really nice card. And the important thing is that it is not part of a baseball card set. Hear that Panini? ” -NJdevils
