Set: 2010 Wheels Main Event (Rate)

Card: #35 Brian Vickers

“ Excellent scan. The Wheels Main Event brand ran from 2009-2011, with the 2009 set being poker themed and the 2010 set being boxing/MMA themed. 2011 had no theme. Vickers has been sidelined several times with blood clots, including currently, as he missed the end of the 2013 season and the testing that kicked off 2014-earlier this week. Actually, when this set was released late in 2010, he was out sick then, too, competing in only the first 11 events that year. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Every time I see or hear about Brian Vickers I think of Jay & Silent Bob- But you forgot about Vickers. ” -jupiterhill

“ Red Bull gives you wiiiiiings. ” -jlaz10

“ Wow, such an exciting card. You can practically feel the exhilaration coming off the card ” -Hollywood42

Set: 2012 Panini Gridiron (Rate)

Card: #258 Lavonte David

“ You ever notice how the backs of most Panini cards all look pretty similar? The front is kind of lackluster but at least it's a nice clear photo of the player. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Do Panini packs come with a slice of cheese? ” -UNC_Samurai

“ One of the worst changes Nike made once they took over uniforms in the NFL was the addition of the "neckroll", or partial collar. ” -jlaz10

Set: 2012 Topps - Gold Sparkle (Rate)

Card: #250 Jered Weaver

“ Weaver is definitely a character. That said, the fact that these Gold Sparkle cards were not numbered were the kiss of death for me, as far as buying retail packs (or, really, much of anything) of 2012 Topps. ” -Luckynumber78

“ "And your gonna hear my Roar" - Katy Perry "RRRWWWAAARRRR!!!" - Jered Weaver ” -yokonashiwa

“ Cool looking card, that I'm sure looks better in person. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Great picture for one of my present day favorite players. Of course the Angels will always have a soft spot for me as I saw my first MLB game in Anaheim. Plus the Angels have great looking uniforms, just go back to calling yourselves either California Angels or Anaheim Angels. ” -Gunny

“ "Gold Sparkle"? What is this a Barbie card? Nice back though. ” -NJDevils

“ I've always liked Topps gold inserts. It's a very interesting look. ” -jlaz10

“ The Cognac parallels from 2011 were better ” -Hollywood42

“ Ahhhhh!! The giant fruitcake is going to eat me !!!!!! ” -uncaian

“ You'd be yelling too if your card background was a closeup of movie theater carpeting from the 70's. ” -revnorb

“ The Gold Sparkle is overkill!!! ” -rmitchell6700

“ Meow!!! ” -SaveDaKid

“ Look, mom. No cavities! ” -switzr1

Set: 1981 Topps (Rate)

Card: #266 Tom Herr

“ 1981 Topps. The set that started if all for me. I was 7 and these were my first cards. Had just started following baseball after the strike (odd huh?) Completed the set by buying rack packs. After that I was hooked. ” -ThemightyOx

“ Very good, another player who is happy to be on a card! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I'm waiting for the "Game-Used Seat Cushion" card. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ Nice back of card. Front is okay, I guess. Herr was a solid performer. ” -NJDevils

“ I appreciate this card because I also have hair that is only suitable for the mid 80’s. ” -jackal726

“ Powder blue roads! One of the best trends in baseball. ” -jlaz10

“ I'm glad the graphic design budget was eventually expanded so that Topps could afford to put their actual logo on the card fronts later in the decade. ” -revnorb

“ This is one of my favourite older sets. The design is bright and colourful, the hat for the team and position is distinctive and memorable, and most of the photography is sharp and flattering. Don't know who this guy is and I don't care. He can't be as great as this card. ” -Luckynumber78

Set: 1990 CMC (Rate)

Card: #43 Don Gordon

“ Another team with green and yellow? I actually really like that combination, ironically enough I'm wearing a yellow shirt and green pants as I write this! (LOL) ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Jeff Gordon Sr. ” -SaveDaKid

“ E-mail me if I'm wrong, but didn't CMC evolve into Pacific (MC part of CMC being Michael Cramer [Cramer's Choice inserts] of Pacific)? I always like Minor League sets. They came a long way in a short period of time (say, 10 years). Look at 1980 minor league sets and compare to this one. ” -vrooomed

“ 1990 CMC, the first ridiculous minor league baseball set... and it came in packs in case you wanted to happen upon that elusive card of the Iowa Cubs trainer. 880 cards of gloriousness. Don Gordon's career, not so glorious. He, the Denver Zephyrs and the American Association have all gone away. ” -ray fosse's ghost

“ The blue and green color scheme the Zephyrs wore in Denver is so much better than their current navy and silver in New Orleans. ” -jlaz10

“ They come out in droves to watch Don Gordon pitch! ” -switzr1

“ Do you get twenty bucks for every pixel of green, CMC? Because you're rolling in it. ” -Luckynumber78

“ That's actually a cool logo. The set isn't anything to think about, but I like the logo ” -Hollywood42

Set: 1993 SkyBox Milestone: The Dakota Universe (Rate)

Card: #68 Jeong Lee & Ann Kim

“ I'm not familiar with the fandom, and the art looks like it was drawn by an overzealous eleven year old who had just discovered the wonders of comics, but not quite yet the wonders of drawing inside the lines. ” -Luckynumber78

“ Milestone was a comic book universe founded by (I believe) entirely minority creators, feeling that there were not enough Black and Asian comic book characters. Eventually, the books all got cancelled, and after a few years of inactivity, they were purchased by DC Comics, who then incorporated them into the DC Universe in the mid-2000s. The most famous Milestone character is Static, who had his own animated TV show. After company founder and driving force behind the characters Dwayne McDuffie died unexpectedly a few years ago they stopped using most of the characters, which is a shame as I was enjoying the stories with them. I believe, since DC got rid of all their continuity and started over in 2011, that Static is the only Milestone character to appear, but I may be wrong as I stopped reading in 2011 when they basically told all long time fans to get lost. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I expect to see a lot of "who?" comments here. Not many actually remember DC's multi-cultural Milestone universe. But it did produce Static, who somehow got his own cartoon 15 years later. ” -DaClyde

“ Love the DC Universe cards but the Dakota Universe (huh?) ” -Mihome316

“ Shaking my head here. ” -NJDevils

“ Expecting yet another hockey card and this is what I see. Awesomeness. ” -ray fosse's ghost

“ Where would these two be without hardware...thanks to this card, I'll be researching what the Dakota Universe is... ” -SaveDaKid

“ Glad the U.K. is part to the TCDB...never heard of this set, but I like it (my wife is Asian, so I love the international flavor in the cards)! And being the "scanning machine" you are, keep 'em comin'. Cheers, ” -bkklaos

“ :( ” -jlaz10

Set: 1993-94 O-Pee-Chee Premier - Gold (Rate)

Card: #305 Denis Savard

“ Foiled again. Foil doesn't scan well at all. I remember when these cards came out and how "nice" they were then. In retrospect, they still are. A lot better than other cards of the 1990s. ” -vrooomed

“ The back of the card is pretty cool. The design is nice, the picture is nice, the border adds pop. The front of the card is pretty typical early-mid ;90s fare. Eh. ” -Luckynumber78

“ One of my favourite players ,the master of the spinaroony.I like this set too. ” -uncaian

“ The Lightning are one of a few teams that actually look good in black. ” -jlaz10

“ All i can think of when i see this is that if somebody painted this and they stuck his name in a little pennant shaped box, this card would look strangely like a '52 Bowman. REALLY strangely, if you factor the hockey stick into the equation. ” -revnorb

“ The gold foil made it so hard to read the player names. ” -suomibear8

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

Card: #166 Ron Swoboda

“ When will they learn not to stick us with a front devoid of information? It never looks good, and it's always frustrating. The picture looks good, otherwise, and even his awkward smile is offset by the quality photography. If only the company's logo and his name and team were emblazoned on the front, I'd be 100% on board with this design. ” -Luckynumber78

“ Finally, somebody who appears happy to be in a photograph! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Well, at least his autograph is readable... ” -lyfestory

“ I grew up knowing Ron Swoboda as the sports guy on the local news. It wasn't till later that I realized that he had been a baseball player. ” -MAS

“ A little known fact is that the Mets interlocking NY logo was actually used by the Giants while they were in New York. ” -jlaz10

“ Was that the last year they gave out autographed pictures of gas station attendants with the purchase of a pack of baseball cards? ” -revnorb

Set: 2002 Fleer (Rate)

Card: #10 Todd Helton

“ Seems awfully washed out. Correcting a washed out scan takes about 3 seconds (literally!) on PhotoScape. Or maybe Fleer was just off with this card...I've gotten a few that didn't look quite right. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Yuck. This card, though from a major company, looks like a knock-off or a giveaway. As much as I like Helton, he's getting the full minor league treatment, here. ” -Luckynumber78

“ The Rockies uniforms have been the same for essentially their entire 20 year history. ” -jlaz10

“ Helton definitely was a Franchise Player ” -Hollywood42

“ I don't really recognize him as Todd Helton without the goatee... ” -jackal726

Set: 2001 Upper Deck Decade 1970's (Rate)

Card: #22 Jeff Burroughs

“ Bright colors! I like that. If I collected baseball, I'd be chasing this set big time. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ He looks like he should be palling around with Alvin and the other chipmunks. ” -Luckynumber78

“ I think its great when the card companies have "Bring your child to work" day and then let the kids pick out the colors for the card designs. ” -ThemightyOx

“ As a child of the 1970s, I think this set could have been better. Too many liberties were taken with photos- some were clearly from the 1960s, others from the 1980s. Using black and white photos, like this Burroughs card, also shows laziness. Loved the homage to 1975 Topps design, however. ” -PlayerPCCollector

“ Lemon and lime popsicles on the front. Raspberry and banana bomb pop on the back. ” -NJDevils

“ I didn't know Jeff Burroughs... and apparently he didn't. That was supposed to be Senators. How quickly they forget. ” -ray fosse's ghost

“ They couldn't find a color picture? ” -jlaz10

“ Looks like something out of a print ad from an old comic book where the person making the ad added random swatches of color to a black and white image, having no idea what the full-color image was supposed to look like. As such, it is strangely compelling. ” -revnorb

“ Please tell me this a bad scan...not an eye appealing set... ” -SaveDaKid

“ Were they trying to make the photos look bad? ” -vrooomed
