Set: 2009 Wheels Main Event - Playing Cards Blue (Rate)

Card: #10H Brian Vickers

“ My all time least favorite NASCAR set. The entire thing was built around poker. A waste of cardboard in my opinion, made doubly so by the fact that they dropped Wheels American Thunder for it. You could build an entire deck of playing cards if you so chose- the blue was retail, the red back version hobby. Vickers has battled blood clots and is out of the car again while he tries to get them fixed. For the first time a replacement has been hired that was not labeled as temporary so it may be the end of his career. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Nice job Billy...another hit! I'm off to Seattle in a week and will be playing in my first Texas Hold'em Tourney...don't imagine I'll be dealt one of these cards though! ” -bkklaos

“ Are we playing Blackjack now? Gimme an Ace! ” -koloth42

“ I really dislike Nascar but these are cool cards. ” -carthage44

“ Hmm when I see cards like this by themselves I wonder were they part of a 52 card "deck" or where they for a set to look like playing cards and there could be any number of cards in the set/deck? Oh I should of just said "Who is the Joker who came up with the idea for this card?" ” -captkirk42

Set: 2003-04 Pacific Complete (Rate)

Card: #113 David Legwand

“ Front design is fine, but the back design is somewhat disappointing. Complete stats would have been nice...especially on a set labeled "Complete" ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Should be called IN-Complete. As in incomplete stats. ” -vrooomed

“ Nothing complete about the design of this set. ” -carthage44

“ Ah Pacific. They rarely had any bad designs. I like the front. The back I prefer the stats to be horizontal even if the rest of the info is vertical and have more than just the previous year's totals. I also prefer the card number at the top not the bottom, but that seemed to be the Pacific way. ” -captkirk42

“ Another set I don't recall having ever seen before. If only I could figure out what was happening in this picture... ” -switzr1

“ I miss the mustard Preds jerseys. ” -wax_house

“ Love the front action scene but the back is less than "Complete". So used to baseball cards stat lines. ” -Mihome316

“ Cool design and great photo! The back leaves a lot to be desired, but overall I like this card. Who knew Pacific did hockey cards? ” -mkaz80

Set: 2013 Topps Best of WWE (Rate)

Card: #27 D-Generation X Reunites

“ Nice card, but hated this set. Not sure why they need multiple sets of WWE cards each year. ” -jupiterhill

“ Wrastlin' WooooooohWhooo! ” -captkirk42

“ I love this card, because I was in the audience the night this happened. 1000th episode of Raw in St. Louis. And if you're not down with that, we've got two words for ya! ” -switzr1

“ Nice card Amazing that they were able to get Triple H's & Shawn Michaels heads in the same picture ! ” -uncaian

Set: 1995 SP Championship (Rate)

Card: #8 Kerry Collins

“ Kerry Collins took the Panthers to the NYC Championship game in 1996 season. Then, in the following preseason, Bill Romanowski broke Kerry's jaw. Kerry was never the same QB for Carolina after that. ” -duaned99

“ He was a solid QB for many years. ” -carthage44

“ Nice simple design I like it, but no stats on back. Oh must be an insert. Hard to tell now-days. ” -captkirk42

“ They were wrong. Sets should never have names like "Future Champions". Makes Upper Deck look foolish in retrospect. ” -switzr1

“ Actual shoulder loops! The way they're meant to be! ” -jlaz10

“ I would take this guy as QB over Johnny Manziel in a game of beer pong anytime. ” -EdTheStatMan

Set: 2010 Topps UFC (Rate)

Card: #138 Jacob Volkmann

“ I miss the early days of UFC. Gracie, Severn, Shamrock. Before they even had weight classes. Even a few years ago with St. Pierre, Silva and Clay Guida. It's kind of lost it's luster for me as of late. ” -Id8jlb8666

“ Not into boxing or MMA but I really think this card needs the 1960s Batman Fighting effects. The first thing I thought when I saw this was **BAM** **POW!*** ” -captkirk42

“ Jacob was 6-4 in the UFC, but his losses were all more exciting than his wins. ” -jackal726

“ I'm sure there are better pics than this out there to showcase this sport ” -SFC Temple

“ UFC killed Boxing. ” -carthage44

Set: 1996-97 Zenith (Rate)

Card: #133 Ethan Moreau

“ Thick cards. Not a terrible design. ” -vrooomed

“ Nice simple design. I like it, BUT where are the stats? Sigh I miss the olden days when the stats on the back were the entire career (or most of it for long time vets) ” -captkirk42

“ GO HAWKS!!! ” -carthage44

“ The non-rookie cards from this set split home and road stats on the back. It makes determining a goalie's sv% and GAA impossible. ” -wax_house

“ Known more for his time in Edmonton great guy on & off the ice,later career hampered by injuries. This card is hampered by Blah. ” -uncaian

“ I like the back a LOT more than I like the front. As a general rule (there are exceptions) I prefer a natural background of a hockey rink to a fake background of foil. ” -switzr1

“ He looks like aliens beamed him up to their ship in the middle of a game. "STAY BACK, CREATURE!" ” -revnorb

“ Nice card, great team. I don't have this one yet though. What can you say... 10/10. ” -Duke

“ The always classic Blackhawks sweater. ” -jlaz10

Set: 2000 Upper Deck Legends (Rate)

Card: #18 Ernie Banks

“ Nice that we can have some licensed, newer, alternative cards of HOFers to add to the collection, without breaking the bank. I'm sure this is a foil-fest, and that's why a scan makes it look so bad. And I do actually like the reuse of the photo behind the stats. They did that part well. ” -vrooomed

“ "Mr. Cub"...what's not to like! ” -bkklaos

“ Not a Cubs fan but he was one of the best! RIP. ” -carthage44

“ Ernie Banks Mr. Cub was one of my fave childhood players. OK so my childhood was at the end of his career. That said this is a real ugly looking card. The front looks like a back and the back looks like the stats were cut and paste on or cut off on the right because of the ruler border. An Upper Deck fail in my book. Oh its a year 2000 that could explain it. ” -captkirk42

“ The world ain't the same without him. Great stirrups to boot. ” -jlaz10

“ I liked when companies started doing sets like this with the legends and old-timers. Seems like this was one of the first. Helps me build my Hall of Fame collection, which would be missing a lot more players without sets like this. And I know this card looks a lot better in person than this scan would indicate. ” -switzr1

“ A baseball great. ” -koloth42

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
