Set: 2007 Upper Deck Goudey (Rate)

Card: #153 Troy Glaus

“ This set is kind of neat. It makes me wish I had still been collecting cards back in 2007. ” -cckeith

“ More ugly, unwieldy mini art cards. I appreciate Goudey's history and the originals are great. A modern company trying to appropriate that greatness, not so much. ” -Id8jlb8666

“ Pitiful card. Sorry Upper Deck, try as you might, this is not a Goudey. I think "Roy" would agree with me. ” -NJdevils

“ Another failed remake. ” -carthage44

“ I understand the appeal of the retro cards. I just don't like the number of retro style sets out there. ” -Mike67

“ Throwback style. Next... ” -vrooomed

“ Looks like he is posing in front of a middle school. Or an auto garage. ” -mkaz80

“ I wonder if this set skipped numbers like Goudey used to. Chasing a set of 44 that only had 39 cards. ” -Dixxy

“ I like the card sets that have the painting look, just like this Goudey set. But wow....that background color! ” -Joshua825

“ I like the set. I like Glaus. I don't like this Blue Jays uniform. Just never looked like the Blue Jays to me. ” -switzr1

“ Even though I love the throwback sets, these newer cards are so clean and the stock is so different, that I'm not a huge fan of this one in particular, although I do have a few of these. ” -suomibear8

“ Roy Glaus? ” -jlaz10

Set: 1991 ProCards Triple A All-Stars (Rate)

Card: #AAA18 Russ McGinnis

“ That's a lot of border. Not that it's a bad border by any means, there's just a lot of it. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Despite being a AAA All-Star, he only played in 17 games in the majors, with the Rangers and Royals. Tough to get in games when you're the #2 catcher, especially if the #1 is Ivan Rodriguez. ” -switzr1

“ Is the phrase "Sub-O-Pee-Chee graphics" in active use? If not, it should be. ” -revnorb

“ ProCard design have never been my favorite but at least they produced cards for minor league teams back in the day. ” -koloth42

“ Front design could handle a couple of tweaks to make it better, but overall nice MiLB card. Even has partial stats for the current season. It was amazing what card companies were able to do once computer typesetting came into being. ” -vrooomed

“ I really like this minor league insert card. ” -carthage44

“ Looks like a popcorn bag. ” -Id8jlb8666

“ Now there's some red, white, and blue! ” -Joshua825

“ I've always liked the Iowa Cubs logo, using the Chicago Cubs primary and a script Iowa. However, it's getting a little outdated compared to the rest of the PCL. ” -jlaz10

Set: 1990 Classic WWF (Rate)

Card: #142 Big Boss Man

“ I need that stars autograph ” -Young Kilo

“ One of the confusing Classic WWE sets. I don't even put my 1989 & 1990 Classic WWE collection in the database because, in so many cases, it is impossible to really know which of the two sets the card came out of. Our checklists have some mistakes too. I like the look of the actual wrestler cards, but the logo cards like this, not so much. ” -switzr1

“ I used to love these cards. I remember I bought a box of them once and every pack had the same cards in it.. ” -Mike67

“ Remember when WWF "superstars" had their own logos? ” -DaClyde

“ I have no problem with this. Simple and different. Not a wrestling collector here but I give it a thumbs up. ” -NJdevils

“ RIP Boss Man. I actually live in Cobb County, and the streets just don't feel as safe since you left. ” -jackal726

“ This is a base card? Not a sticker insert? Wow. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Eh? Fail. ” -koloth42

“ ...Well it's better than a Key from a Disney set... but I still don't fully understand the allure of a card of this nature... ” -Dixxy

“ Awesome badge card! Always loved the Big Boss Man! ” -armac

Set: 2009-10 Topps Premier League Match Attax (Rate)

Card: #220 Jonny Evans

“ I detest unis with advertising on them. ” -NJdevils

“ Really dislike Attax cards from all sports. ” -carthage44

“ I like the Chevron design, but of course Nike uses it to make their swoosh pop. ” -jlaz10

Set: 1961 Topps (Rate)

Card: #463a Milwaukee Braves

“ Great vintage card. I miss team cards. Hey, with the Database's new feature of manually adding tags, each and every one of those players could now be tagged to appear in their individual listing. If I knew who they were, I would do it myself! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Very cool back. Couldn't do that chart on a card today. Teams play 19 or 20 opponents a year instead of the same seven over and over. Pretty sure this was the last year teams played 154 games. The 22x7 structure would be no more. ” -switzr1

“ I always thought it a cheat that Topps used the same team photo for 6 years (1960-1965). Of course, the low image quality makes its almost impossible to identify anyone, anyways. ” -C2Cigars

“ Personally, I always liked the team Cards. I actually have a separate binder for mine. Back in the day they used to serve as team dividers. ~BOB~ ” -BOBSCARDZ

“ Always loved the team pictures; but even more so when they fronted team checklists. ” -vrooomed

“ This made my childhood flash right before my eyes. As a young Yankees fan, I viewed the Braves as evil as I did the Dodgers. You get old and suddenly you have immense respect for the other teams. ” -NJdevils

“ Interesting red background. I would have much rather preferred the County Stadium scene. ” -jlaz10

“ That red background makes that team photo look really weird.....glad current team cards look better! ” -Joshua825

“ I wonder why they couldn't just use the original background. ” -suomibear8

“ Love team cards! I like the pitching records on the back but they face too many teams to do it now. Spahn: 21-10, five losses against Pitt. Guess they had his number. ” -armac

Set: 2006 Topps Turkey Red (Rate)

Card: #343a Richie Sexson

“ I don't get the appeal of these sets. Just another arty junk product. ” -Id8jlb8666

“ If these were truly "framed" they would be nicer. From these new TRs I have, they are thick, so nice stock. I only wish I had an original TR! ” -vrooomed

“ Doesn't quite have the look or feel of the original T3's, but still a nice retro set. ” -suomibear8

“ One of my favorite sets. I love the canvas look and the paintings of the players! ” -Joshua825

“ At first glance, I thought this was a golf card. ” -switzr1

“ I like the texture, look and classic looking backs of Turkey Red. And I really like the pose and background on this card. ” -armac

Set: 1996 Takara Nippon-Ham Fighters (Rate)

Card: #27 Shinichi Kawana

“ Ham Fighters has to be the greatest team name in sports history! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ GO DaClyde!!! You do find the most FASCINATING stuffs to add to the database!!! It's honestly hard to think of any other country having a "pro" league of any sport other than soccer really. after all the NHL is the most desired league in hockey, the MLB is likely the most followed world wide league, NFL is the most bet on by far! even non football fans bet on the superbowl! NBA is likely the most swept under the rug league. Not for bad reasons!! Everyone is just too focused on the others that they use the excuse that they can't follow another sport, there's too much on their plate already... I want to see a japan and US pro Baseball game! Just one! Who do you think would win??! ” -Dixxy

“ This has to be a DACLYDE scan. ” -Id8jlb8666

“ Never heard of this set, but love the international flavor! ” -bkklaos

“ As far as the astethetics, I don't care for the design. I have the 1968 Topps card game cards. They were well played with when I was a kid, but now have very little value because of their condition. Card game cards are like a cruel joke..."here's a card game for you, but don't play with it". ” -C2Cigars

“ I'd love it if I could read it. :) ” -vrooomed

“ I always love the concepts of making the cards into a game. I wish I knew what the different results were for the dice on the back. ” -armac

“ Interesting number font. Half block and half round. ” -jlaz10

“ I wouldn't mind owning a Japanese baseball card, preferably one like this where the name is showing on his jersey. ” -switzr1

Set: 1988 K-Mart Memorable Moments (Rate)

Card: #30 Rick Sutcliffe

“ Standing in front of a wall is a memorable moment? Perhaps they should have used a photo related to the caption on the back of the card. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I loved these little boxed sets from the '80s. Although, this wasn't one of my favorites. By the way, it looks like they drove out to San Quentin to get a photo of Sutcliffe. ” -mkaz80

“ Rick looks like a perfect candidate for the "Hairy Face Team". lol...Luv small box sets...I have a HUGE collection of them. ~BOB ” -BOBSCARDZ

“ I'm sure this photo is a moment Rick Sutcliffe doesn't remember. ” -Id8jlb8666

“ Look how well they've captured that memorable moment...when Sutcliffe watched Scott Sanderson go 4 and 2/3rds in an 8-3 loss to the Padres. ” -wax_house

“ Box set heaven. :) ” -vrooomed

“ The Cubs were one of those teams who, despite going with '80s pullovers, looked good because they maintained their button-up style. ” -jlaz10

“ At the peak of card over production when every retail store had to have their own card set. ” -koloth42

“ "If I have to sit for a Kmart card, I am not smiling, that's it". ” -NJdevils

“ There were tons of these sotre brand sets. I don't think one of them actually had any significant value. ” -suomibear8

Set: 1971 Dell Today's Team Stamps (Rate)

Card: #426 Daryl Patterson

“ Plain and simple. Nice stamp. Love the Tigers logo on he back ” -NJdevils

“ Interesting write up on the reverse. ” -vrooomed

“ Part of a booklet that was sold on newsstands locally. An order form in the back allowed fans to buy teams from other areas, or the complete set. which came in a special binder/cover. There are some nice color photos in this issue, especially of players who didn't appear on too many Topps cards. ” -Dave Sosidka

“ I like the comment that his best success was against Boston. You don't usually see that on a card, a mention that a player excels against one specific team. ” -switzr1

“ The Tigers home uni is one of the most classic in the game. ” -jlaz10

“ My eye just keeps going back to that glove. Wow. ” -armac

Set: 2003 SPx (Rate)

Card: #19 Drew Bledsoe

“ Am I tripping? It hurts my eyes. ” -Duke

“ This is a very odd set design, made moreso by the scan, which shows up as pink and purple lines (I would guess it was done on en Epson machine, one of my scanners does that with holofoils). I know a lot of people go nuts for SPx and SP Authentic cards, but I honestly am not that big a fan. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I normally don't comment on football (I don't really collect football), but this, this is terrible. The background on the front (and back!) looks like a really bad acid trip or something. Bledsoe, himself, was a great QB. ” -vrooomed

“ Very distracting background...hate it. ” -C2Cigars

“ I think this card had a negative effect on Bledsoe's career. ” -NJdevils

“ Wow, that is probably the busiest base card I have seen ” -jackal726

“ Too much happening in these Bills unis. The double outline isn't necessary, as is the thin royal blue stripe across the chest. ” -jlaz10

“ Ahhh! I'm blind! ” -suomibear8

“ Not a big fan of this design, but don't find is as bad as I used to. I prefer seeing the field as a background. ” -armac
