Set: 1990 Topps - Disclaimer Back (Rate)

Card: #142 Don Majkowski

“ Nice design. That's the largest Topps logo I've ever seen! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ The NFL revoked Topps' license. Topps issued "disclaimer backs" before their lawsuit against the NFL was settled. Once they won the lawsuit, they reissued the complete set without the disclaimer. They left the fronts unchanged, even though team logos were supposed to be in the green box where the football is. As far as the design goes...I don't like it. ” -C2Cigars

“ Ah one of the football years that I had gotten a lot of at the time. Yet another of the zillions (well maybe only a few hundred) of sets I need to actually complete. OH wait this is the "Disclaimer back" variant. Were Topps states the cards are not authorized or sanctioned by the NFL. Now-days these would be called "Unlicensed" and couldn't have the team logos or names on them. Not sure how many I have of these puppies. To be honest I never really noticed until I heard about this maybe a year ago. Not sure if I will make the distinction or not for my collection. ” -captkirk42

“ One great year. Nine bad ones ” -Young Kilo

“ To be honest, this looks kinda cool. ” -DarkSide830

“ Majik Man... Nice disclaimer as well ” -SFC Temple

“ Had a career season in 1989 but after two poor seasons in 1990 and 1991 the Packers decided to trade for Brett Favre. The rest, as they say, is history. ” -carthage44

“ Majik Man! Poor dude couldn't stay healthy, and then Favre came along. ” -marcbrubaker

“ Magic! A man who threw for a 4000 yard season but never topped even 3000 in any other season. ” -wax_house

“ Good action shot, but not a fan of cards where a players face isn't visible ” -mbarlow092

“ The Majik Man. Was injured and replaced by Brett Favre. Went on to Indy and Detroit. ” -armac

Set: 2002 Fleer Genuine (Rate)

Card: #39 Mike Sweeney

“ Really not a fan of this design. The foil borders chipped so easily, breathing on them wrong could do it. (at least in basketball). I opened a box of the NBA set when new, and most of the cards came out of the packs chipped. Most of the cards have pieces of color from other cards permanently stuck to their backs as well. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Early 2000s seem to be stuck in that Junk Wax Years 1990s trends. UM OK this looks like it is trying to be an imitation photographic slide in some ways. Don't know what the little squares are doing above is name, team name is in an odd position. The black border with random white lines doesn't cut it. OK the back...the sideways personal info/stats needs to be normalized. The back picture either made bigger or a head shot. Otherwise it is pretty good. ” -captkirk42

“ A whole lotta border going on with this card. Are those lines purposely not parallel to the card? I like having 2 pictures on one card. ” -Kaline6

“ A nice design for sure. Not much more I have to say. ” -DarkSide830

“ Enough with the black borders already! ” -NJdevils

“ Crocked card alert!!! ” -carthage44

“ This is either a really crooked scan, or a really bad card design. Sweeney was a solid player for a lot of years in KC, in a time when they didn't have too many solid players. ” -switzr1

“ Looks like another card I'll have to add to my wantlist. Not real sure on the design though. ” -jupiterhill

“ That's some bad cropping. ” -Young Kilo

Set: 1997 Bowman (Rate)

Card: #357 Steve Soderstrom

“ think the pic on the back would have been a better choice for the front ” -tonym

“ I love the look of this card. Dark borders make the subject stand out, and though they're usually prone to chipping (see 1971 Topps) I figure these were either made of plastic or went straight from pack to sleeve. More stats on the back would be nice, but I wouldn't want to sacrifice anything else just to squeeze them in. ” -dilemma19

“ One of the good years of Bowman, or at least one of the base base cards aka A Veteran's card not a prospect or rookie with the confusing CDDDPPPPDD whatever numbers. ” -captkirk42

“ This guy looks like my high school social studies teacher. ” -wax_house

“ Really dislike the spring training photos. ” -carthage44

“ I used to like the older Bowman products. The newer stuff not so much. It's all geared towards RC's now. ” -suomibear8

Set: 1997 Pacific Crown Collection (Rate)

Card: #157 Tim Raines

“ Plain and simple: should be in the Hall of Fame ” -armac

“ Not just a nice looking card. It can also help improve your Spanish! ” -dilemma19

“ hope he makes hall of fame next couple of years...expo years were great ” -mzentko

“ Foil on foil crime. ” -wax_house

“ Bad Pacific Crown card and I mean bad in the original definition of not good. The gold foil/leaf nonsense on the left I can't make sense of, OH his name is sideways starting from the bottom. Back design isn't that much better but at least it can all be read and doesn't have any foil/leaf imprints. Wait Tim Raines as a Yankee? I keep forgetting he played for them at one time. ” -captkirk42

“ One of the best pure base stealers of all-time. He should be in the Hall of Fame. ” -carthage44

Set: 2000 Upper Deck (Rate)

Card: #347 Damon Buford

“ Technically, the 21st century started on 1/1/2001, not 2000. Good scan of a hard to scan properly set. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ It might just be the scan but the last name is really tough to read. ” -bigmeat

“ Not liking the way the player's name is displayed on front and back, but otherwise a pretty nice card. ” -vrooomed

“ I agree with anyone who dislikes this card. ” -NJDevils

“ I've said it before nice design front an back. Pretty simple I like it EXCEPT for the foil lettering. I have always hated the foil lettering and always will. ” -captkirk42

“ this was a good cubs joke (until last year) C completely U useless B by S September ” -mzentko

“ Boom! Holy Cow! That ones gone! ” -koloth42

“ Landscape cards are annoying when the whole set isn't in landscape. ” -wax_house

“ Good thing UD still had a license to produce baseball cards this year, because the team name is awfully hard to read. Back is nice. All required elements are there without it being too crowded. ” -dilemma19

Set: 1974-75 A&BC Gum (Rate)

Card: #58 Brian Alderson

“ This is a soccer card right ? He didn't become a nun,did he ? ” -uncaian

“ Nothing like some good old Awful and Been Chewed Gum ” -addysdaddy

“ YES!!!! ” -SFC Temple

“ never seen these before, interesting.. ” -mzentko

“ Amazingly plain card design but then that was the way it all began for card manufacturers. ” -jefferies9

“ At first glance I thought this was some mid-70s non-sport card. Almost thought it was something music related because "Coventry" looked a lot like "Country" ” -captkirk42

“ The trivia answer has faded! Now we'll never know in which Scottish city Mr. Alderson rocked his mullet :( ” -dilemma19

“ I read the back of the card and still have no idea what sport this card is for. ” -carthage44

“ Cool Football League card. I would love to have some 70s English cards like this. ” -switzr1

Set: 2004 Topps Heritage Star Wars (Rate)

Card: #104 Battlefield: Geonosis

“ I only got one pack of this set. What was I thinking? I need to hunt down more. I actually like the prequals, too! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Long, long ago, in a galaxy far, far away.... ” -Kaline6

“ Just in time for the new movie. Are these really random? ” -deporcoruña

“ Send in the clones.Wait ! Don't bother they're here....Meh kinda blah. ” -uncaian

“ Forget the Star Quote, here's a Cigar Quote. "I hate it" ” -C2Cigars

“ For some reason "Star Wars Heritage" doesn't work for me. Maybe something like Retro Star Wars? Classic Star Wars? Star Wars Saga, wait that one was already used I think. OH well enjoy the battle scene from some Star Wars movie ("Attack of the Clones" supposedly) ” -captkirk42

“ I love how they how they have the newer movie scene but the old Empire Strikes Back design! ” -Joshua825

“ Star Wars BOOOO!!! ” -carthage44

“ Heritage Star Wars? I am trying to figure out just what that means. ” -NJdevils

“ I'm huge Star Wars fan, but not a s much with the cards. Great quote and pivotal battle though! ” -DarkSide830

Set: 2013-14 Topps Premier League Match Attax (Rate)

Card: #436 Paolo Di Canio

“ Yuck! I guess the graphic designers who can't get a job in the US go to the UK. A manager's card with Speed, Tackle, Power, Shoot, Skill, Pass points? ” -C2Cigars

“ Weak sauce. ” -carthage44

“ Flagging down a cab? ” -NJDevils

“ Um OK. A bit too busy design for a Match Attax card. ” -captkirk42

Set: 1989 CMC Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Red Barons (Rate)

Card: #20 Joe Redfield

“ Neat card. Design looks more early 80s than 1989 but there's no question this is an 80s design. Check out the font used for the TV station ad on the back, too. I've been to both Scranton and Wilkes Barre as well, in fact I even purchased some cards there. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Nothing is wrong with this card. Name is clear on front, with the position. The back has full stats and gives the league, level, and major league affiliation. And a real card number, not the uni # (and big and clear). Real nice card. ” -vrooomed

“ I was never a big fan of minor league cards, but the more I see them the more I like them. ” -engine614

“ The first thing that caught my eye...his right hand is not gripping the bat. I like the simple design. It would look better with a color border. I guess they were trying to save money on ink. ” -C2Cigars

“ Not bad for a minor league card. Interestingly got traded back to his hometown team after the '88 season. ” -DarkSide830

“ A solid minor league card. ” -NJDevils

“ Besides his oh for two in 88 with the Angels, went 2 for 28 with the Pirates in 91. A career .100 hitter. Maybe it's that loose bat grip! ” -Kaline6

Set: 1999-00 Pacific Paramount (Rate)

Card: #178 Dallas Drake

“ Not a bad set,Drake a pretty good career .Great name. ” -uncaian

“ Pacific is a card series that typically makes me cringe, but this card; only slightly less than some others. ” -DarkSide830

“ You'd think with ice and boards contributing making the photos so white, hockey card manufacturers would opt for darker backs and borders. ” -dilemma19

“ Pretty nice front except for foil, back a bit lacking. Good thing Pacific was not the only card company making Hockey cards that year. ” -captkirk42

“ Love the Drake! ” -carthage44

“ Seems bland to me, too whited out in the background ” -mbarlow092
