Random Card of the Day

Set: 2007-08 Upper Deck Black Diamond (Rate)

Card: #18 Brent Seabrook

“ Black Diamond cards look great in hand, not so much in scans. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ He is half of the best defensive duo in the league along with Duncan Keith. ” -carthage44

“ Just because the set is called "black diamond", doesn't mean you have to make it 80% black. Great player though! ” -dilemma19

“ Black Diamond Oh how I dislike your Chromeness. The only thing I can read in this scan is Black from "Black Diamond" I can almost read "Diamond" Is that the Upper Deck logo in the upper left? Back is pretty good. ” -captkirk42

“ This card front is a mess. But there is no mistaking that it is Black Diamond! ” -switzr1

Set: 1996-97 Upper Deck (Rate)

Card: #143 Murray Baron

“ Not bad, I do wish the team logo was not silver foil but the actual colours. A note not on the card design...what were the Blues thinking with these unis? Look at the back scan, the red swash on the bottom of the jersey is just awful. ” -rmpaq5

“ I love this design but the name is very hard to read on the hockey version of it. I always really liked the game dated cards UD did for that short time period. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ This set mirrors the base design for Upper Deck's 96-97 basketball set, which I love. So this card gets two thumbs up ” -ketchupman36

“ Nice set, and with UD introducing the the idea of "game-dated" photos, it was rather cool to know which game the photo was taken. ” -vrooomed

“ Nice set , shiny but not tacky & I like the stats & info on the back. Baron was a steady stay at home defenseman ,nothing flashy but got the job done. ” -uncaian

“ Way to plain of a front. ” -DarkSide830

“ Not a bad design, except for the name being hard to read. Why would you make the name and card color the same? ” -suomibear8

“ The exact date of when the picture was taken is cool. ” -carthage44

“ Decent card, nothing exceptional, but not bad either. Typical UD. ” -Doc Floyd

“ Looks like an insert card. Almost didn't see his name reading vertical. Dark gray foil lettering on silver foil great reading for older eyes. Back is a mess. Back photo way too big for starters goes down hill from there. ” -captkirk42

“ I really like this set, as it gave a date to something neat that happened to this player ” -Howintensive

Set: 1990 El Paso Diablos All-Time Greats Team Issue (Rate)

Card: #25 Greg Vaughn

“ I love these team issued minor league cards! For the time frame and budget, no doubt little was allotted, design is good. I think the best part is that the team basically used a trucker/cheese grater hat as part of their uni! ” -rmpaq5

“ Actually outhomered cousin Mo (355 to 328) ” -volbox

“ Nice team issue. I'd guess, not knowing anything about this set having seen it for the first time when it came up as Card of the Day, that this was available only at the stadium? ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Shouldn't this set be called Diablos Who Made It To The Majors? I looked at several card backs, and some of these guys didn't have particularly good numbers with the Diablos. ” -switzr1

“ He was a pure power hitter. ” -carthage44

“ Volcano?!? Printed after Vaughn's above-average debut season with the Brewers. I considered him a very good player surrounded and overshadowed by the steroid monsters (AFAIK he was never implicated). Perhaps never having played for a large-market team (unlike his cousin Mo) hurt his popularity, but I certainly cheered for him as a Padre - while quietly praying he wouldn't need to make a crucial defensive play. The card is terrible, but what do you expect for a minor-league team-issue... ” -dilemma19

“ Nice simple team issued Minor League card. ” -captkirk42

“ Basic, cheap looking, and to the point. So bad it's actually great. And it's not a soccer card! ” -Doc Floyd

Set: 2015 Panini Road to EURO 2016 Adrenalyn XL (Rate)

Card: #235 Onur Kivrak

“ Yes I know he is rolling the ball out to a teammate on the back, but anybody else get "Bowling for Dollars" stuck in their head when the look at it? ” -rmpaq5

“ Another one of these playing cards...why does soccer not get actual cards? I like the uniform. Green has always been my favorite color and this is very much green. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ This card ,popping up the day before the tounament is starting, makes me wonder how random the card of the day really is. ” -deporcoruña

“ Way too many of these garbage cards around. ” -carthage44

“ I try and give every card type their props but any and all soccer cards are laughable; like they are circus give aways. ” -SFC Temple

“ I'm not really pumped about the Euro tournament anyway, but cards like this one don't help generate excitement... What is the significance of "TEAM MATE" in the bottom-left corner. Are there some cards of people competing as individuals? ” -dilemma19

“ WHY do these things keep coming up!!! ” -RoyalChief

“ Oh fun second day in a row a soccer "Attax" card. This one by Panini. Oh wait maybe it isn't a game card but a regular soccer card? Ugly card TOO BUSY. ” -captkirk42

“ I thought I told you to ban these cards for life? With the large number of soccer cards and teams, looks like we will be inundated forever by this junk. ” -NJDevils

“ To be the world's most popular sport, they sure don't know how to make decent looking cards for it. ” -Doc Floyd

Set: 2012 Top Trumps Specials Manchester United (Rate)

Card: #NNO Rafael Da Silva

“ Just plain terrible. ” -carthage44

“ TRUMP 2016!!!!!!! :) ” -RoyalChief

“ Top Trumps? Let "The Donald" jokes begin... ” -rmpaq5

“ GOAL! Oh wait maybe not. I don't know who makes Trumps but they are like Topps Attax and a type of game card I have no desire to pursue in most cases. ” -captkirk42

“ Nice card. ” -dilemma19

“ Not more of these ugly things. ” -Doc Floyd

“ Make Brazil Great Again!!! ” -cjjt

Set: 1986 Fleer (Rate)

Card: #545 Mike Jeffcoat

“ Solid mid-80s design. I like it! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ And that's a name? ” -DarkSide830

“ Too much sun for pale Mike. ” -carthage44

“ Now that right there is what you call a basic baseball card. Which means it is absolutely perfect!! ” -RoyalChief

“ Boring design, just maybe a little better than the Donruss set that year, but neither is as nice as the Topps set from '86. The guy looks a bit sunburned. ” -Doc Floyd

“ Nice mid 1980s Fleer. Back before the dreaded gimmicks on base cards that still continue to this day. ” -captkirk42

“ This was one of those forgettable sets from the junk wax era that I can never remember what year it is without looking at the back. Speaking of which the backs were horrible to read back then and with worsening eyesight are almost impossible to read now and I don't think it is from a bad scan. ” -wjsenke

“ Decent basic design. The pose though is pretty much exactly like my 6 year old's team photo day photo this year. ” -rmpaq5

“ The back design was so great, Fleer recycled it in 1989. ” -dilemma19

Set: 2002-03 SP Authentic - Limited (Rate)

Card: #95 John Stockton

“ The greatest point guard of all time! Stockton is the only player to lead the NBA all time record charts in two of the five major stats. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Lets make some diagonal lines around the border, Yeah, cool idea, HAHA! ” -carthage44

“ Too much border, solid back, but OK overall. Great player that saves a dull card. ” -Doc Floyd

“ Another early 2000s design with foil lettering. Not impossible to read, but not that easier either. ” -captkirk42

“ Were those diagonal lines on the border part of the design or an uncropped scan? If design that's hideous. Otherwise this is sterotypical UD design ” -FuriousGeorge

“ Almost nothing is legible on the front of this card. ” -dilemma19

“ A true great and of the real "Dream Team" members. There was only one. ” -UKboogie

Set: 1988 Score - Glossy (Rate)

Card: #146 Robby Thompson

“ A bit more shiny on the front was the only difference between this set and the regular set (besides the print run). We just had a base set card not too long ago. Still like the set. ” -vrooomed

“ The blue works better than the red we saw recently. I liked that design as well. Great scan! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Score was new to the game here and it shows. ” -carthage44

“ Score was a full-color action shot game changer in the card market, improved upon by Upper Deck. ” -pksteinberg

“ Score again? This is the "glossy" version. Oh OK then. Anyway this is an OK design. Team name and logo should be on front. On back card number should be larger and not # of 660 rest of back is OK. ” -captkirk42

“ We just saw this set the other day, and I commented how their was nothing really special about it, but if memory serves correctly now wasn't this the first set to have colour photos on the back as well as the front? ” -rmpaq5

“ 1988 Score. A real game-changer. And they didn't charge a dollar a pack like Upper Deck did the next year. I really do like this set. I'm sure some will complain that they didn't tell the name of the team on the front though. ” -switzr1

Set: 2009 Upper Deck (Rate)

Card: #196 James Loney

“ I really like this design. Great scan too! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ This looks pretty cool, be better if that red box around LA was a team color instead though. ” -Doc Floyd

“ Another "in case you didn't see the front of the card, we put the same picture on the back" ” -NJdevils

“ Pretty simple design, yet provides the information I look for. ” -engine614

“ And why did the Rays release him? ” -DarkSide830

“ Such high hope for this guy but he just never lived up to them. ” -carthage44

“ I like it. Not sure I own any of these. Came out during my extended break from collecting. ” -switzr1

Set: 1990 Star Miami Miracle II (Rate)

Card: #30 Office Personnel

“ Going by the clothes and hairdos, I did not need the title to peg this as a 1990 card. ” -rmpaq5

“ It's nice that behind the scene folks get some cred , typical '90's a card for everything. ” -uncaian

“ Wow, gotta love team sets that include the whole team. This is doing team sets right. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Oh my......lol. For some reason this reminds me of Miami Vice. ” -RoyalChief

“ This card must have been a HOT find! ” -carthage44

“ 15 minutes of fame. Good for them. Who are we to rain on their parade? ” -cjjt

“ Hey look, it's a miracle we made it on a baseball card! Sorry that's all I got. ” -Doc Floyd

“ Want it! ” -dilemma19

“ Wow! All sorts of stuff to say about this card. Just love seeing the Star Co cards featured. ” -vrooomed

“ Talk about your randomness of random card of the day. The front office staff of a minor league baseball team from 26 years ago. ” -captkirk42

“ Not something I'd collect, but....hey...they are forever immortalized on a trading card. ” -Kaline6

“ I love it! So random. I wonder if any of them were ever asked for autographs. ” -armac

“ Is this for real? There is not enough space to write all the travesties I am looking at. ” -muskie027
