Set: 2009 Upper Deck First Edition (Rate)

Card: #154 Nomar Garciaparra

“ I never quite figured out why the card companies thought that issuing sets that are essentially paralells to the main issue with only slight changes was a good idea. The UD First Editons are at least significantly different, some of the Topps issues the only difference was a small silver foil logo. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ These 'First Edition' cards still make me think they are a parallel. Upper deck with their seventy five releases, all with the same picture... ” -SSG Temple

“ I always like First Edition because it didn't have any foil (except for the Upper Deck hologram on the back). ” -jlaz10

“ Nomar, one of the greats...But why doesn't he turn around and tag the guy that appears to be 3 feet away from him? ” -Hollywood42

“ Yes, 'First Edition'. First Edition of what? What a waste of card space. Would have been a decent card without that gold strip up the left side. ” -NJDevils

“ First edition cards mean nothing to me. Please go away. ” -carthage44

Set: 1991 All World CFL (Rate)

Card: #74 Ray Elgaard

“ Solid blue border = OK. Striped blue border = what were they thinking? ” -sascards67

“ I actually have some of these cards. Sad thing is, I don't know how or when I got them. ” -yokonashiwa

“ The Canadian Football League is where former NFL players can extend their careers. ” -carthage44

“ Ahhhh... The Raghib Ismail Set. I remember wasting plenty of money to get these. If nothing else, thanks for the flashback! ” -SSG Temple

“ Bleh ” -Hollywood42

“ I don't think the Canadians even bought this set. Nice way to make the name and team illegible, run more lines through it. ” -NJDevils

“ If All World was allowed to use CFL logos, why aren't they only saying Saskatchewan? ” -jlaz10

“ Yay a CFL card! I wish CFL cards were more mainstream across Canada. ” -DanD

“ Cool background, but the red letters seem slightly hard to read. ” -Billy Kingsley

Set: 1994 Pacific Crown Collection (Rate)

Card: #140 Robin Ventura

“ Name font doesn't look good, makes it seem ametureish. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Ventura had a good career. But the first that comes to mind when his comes up is Nolan Ryan kicking his *ss ” -Young Kilo

“ Former White Sox great and current White Sox manager. Glad he's back on the South Side! ” -carthage44

“ I always liked the Pacific action shots but think the colors are always too drab. ” -SSG Temple

“ Probably one of Pacific's best efforts. A nice card. ” -NJDevils

“ Pacific tried to have good designs, but failed miserably every time. ” -jlaz10

“ I've always liked this design but it was very hard to find these packs for some reason. ” -sascards67

“ My favorite memory of Robin is when he charged Nolan Ryan and the old man gave him a beat down. ” -amine

Set: 2001 Upper Deck Gold Glove (Rate)

Card: #29 Bobby Higginson

“ One of the many late 90's early 00's where the picture was secondary to the design. It's looks like Bobby is getting pushed off of the card. ” -sascards67

“ This is the time when Upper Deck starting coming out with about 30 different sets each year. I do kinda like this one with the glove border. ” -carthage44

“ Nice card. Like the glove design for the name. ” -yokonashiwa

“ The book theme is kind of interesting...probably would have worked better with a Record Book theme than Golden Glove, but it's not a bad card at all. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Next time, try to take up two-thirds of the card with the name banner instead of a measly one-third. ” -NJDevils

“ The way his glove and eyes are positioned make it look like he over ran the ball. ” -jlaz10

Set: 1987-88 O-Pee-Chee (Rate)

Card: #83 Bernie Federko

“ He looks like he's saying 'aww man, why'd you have to go and take this picture' ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I do not collect hockey cards but this is a nice card. ” -carthage44

“ Bernie looks quite displeased with something, maybe his last shift, perhaps the officiating or it could be the photographer. At any rate, a great card of a great Hall of Famer. ” -Gunny

“ Now THAT is a retro jersey! ” -suomibear8

“ One of the shining lights for the Blues in the "80s,this is one of my favourite sets. ” -uncaian

“ I have this card and laughed when I first opened the pack and saw it. Good natural look, no posing for Bernie. Just trying to figure out if he took a puck to the neck or the coach was benching him. We'll never know. ” -NJDevils

“ Aww mom!! I'll clean my room in the offseason! ” -DanD

Set: 1970-71 Esso Power Players (Rate)

Card: #157 Bill Flett

“ Serial numbered 70/71. WOW, nice, LOL! ” -carthage44

“ When I was getting into cards, it wasn't always easy to figure out when some cards came out. Somebody getting this card wouldn't have had that problem! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Wow 'Cowboy' Bill Flett !! I don't think I've ever seen a picture of him without the beard ! Cool. ” -uncaian

“ Cowboy Flett. I remember him mainly with the Flyers probably because he won a Stanley Cup there though he only spent a little over 2 seasons with them. Didnt know he had passed away. Sad. ” -NJDevils

“ I like how the names really small AND THE YEAR IS REALLY BIG!!! ” -jlaz10

“ Ah! The purple and yellow old unnies. ” -deporcoruña

“ The really want you to know what year this was from and everything else seems secondary. Good shot of the classic Kings logo though. ” -sascards67

Set: 1991 Score Rookies (Rate)

Card: #25 Mike Benjamin

“ Even without the logo in the top right I knew this was a Score card. They just kept putting the same design elements on every set and added bright colors. Still better than most Fleer sets though. ” -sascards67

“ I wonder when he entered the league...? ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Hey! One of my scans.. lol This set is interesting.. Half the players didn't amount to anything while the others turned into decent players. ” -Mike67

“ Looks like he's playing football! ” -jlaz10

“ Wow, I didn't think this was possible, but there actually appears to be a 80s/90s Score card that I actually like! ” -Hollywood42

Set: 1998 Pinnacle (Rate)

Card: #139 Kenny Rogers

“ They couldn't afford to put the players first name on the card?? Also, is this a staged photo or is he just smiling because he likes the pitch? ” -yokonashiwa

“ I hate it when companies only use the last name of the player. ” -jlaz10

“ One of the guys that could never play in NY. The media got to him. He choked for the Mets & Yanks. He did do great in Texas & Detroit though. ” -deporcoruña

“ Rogers was a bit of a journey man. He played 20 seasons for the Rangers (3 different times), Yankees, Athletics, Mets, Twins and Tigers. Despite a fairly high career ERA (4.27), Rogers was 63 games over .500 and was only 32 strikouts shy of 2,000 for his career. ” -carthage44

“ Kenny stuck around forever, but I haven't heard anything about him in a long time ” -Hollywood42

Set: 2011 Topps Heritage (Rate)

Card: #483 Trevor Hoffman

“ I am not a fan of most heritage sets but I love this one with the wood border. CLASSIC! ” -carthage44

“ I know this wood design takes a lot of derision in the hobby, but I like it. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I don't like these sets. I believe it's lack of originality. The fellas at Topps should come up with a different product if they want to sell more. ” -deporcoruña

“ This set of Topps Heritage is one of my favorites. ” -jlaz10

“ I simply do not like the Heritage sets. ” -NJDevils

Set: 1979 Topps (Rate)

Card: #358 Reuben Gant

“ Awesome set! ” -carthage44

“ I always found it odd how on old Topps cards the colors of the name, team name, and accents had nothing to do with the team. ” -jlaz10

“ Cool card ” -Hollywood42

“ Nice design. Nothing too extraneous. No HGH either by the looks of this tight end. ” -NJDevils

“ Who p*ssed this guy off? ” -deporcoruña

“ This would have been a better design if the banner behind the football was removed or at least was the team colors of the player represented. ” -sascards67
