Set: 2003 Fleer Patchworks (Rate)

Card: #69 Jeff Kent

“ Kent is one of the best steroid using players of all-time. ” -carthage44

“ I like the manufactured patch inserts from this set, but these based cards are pretty boring. Kent deserves some HOF consideration in my opinion. ” -dilemma19

“ This Patchworks design is much better than the design used for the NBA. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Not familiar with this set. "Patchworks" must have been a set with an emphasis of Game Used relics/ artifacts/ memorabilia. In general its an OK base card. ” -captkirk42

“ Not bad. Colors are a bit on the dull side. Why are they called "Patchworks"?? Were the cards pieced together by a bunch of old ladies at a quilting bee? A lot of "patch" insert sets, but I don't think you should name an entire set based on the inserts. ” -C2Cigars

“ Why is this called Patchworks? I don't see any patches. ” -wax_house

“ he sure could hit, but has reputation of not being a good teammate- hof maybe? ” -mzentko

“ Jeff was a five time All-Star, yet was not elected during 2002. (Arguably his best season) Some things are just strange like that. Not too bad of a card; could be better, but I've seen FAR worse. ” -DarkSide830

“ Big fan of Jeff Kent, not much of an Astros fan.Card is alright could do with a little less border and more picture ” -herbinator

“ I think he was on the last season of Survivor that I watched. This card looks like it is a month of a calendar if we dropped his name and replaced it with weekdays at the bottom. ” -UKboogie

Set: 2013 Choice Binghamton Mets (Rate)

Card: #18 Richard Lucas

“ Nice MiLB card. Everything you can want in a card. ” -vrooomed

“ Nice job by the B-Mets. Good border colors. ” -NJDevils

“ Oh its Minor League. At first glance I thought "which sticker set was this from?". Nice card reminds me of 1989 Topps. ” -captkirk42

“ I like this card a lot! Cool design. But what is that logo a hornet of some sort? ” -RoyalChief

“ Minor league cards have really grown on me. ” -carthage44

“ Good look for a minor league card. ” -wax_house

“ Nice card design. I like when they use the team's colors in the design. ” -C2Cigars

Set: 2014 SAGE HIT - Versus Printing Plates Yellow (Rate)

Card: #VS2 Sammy Watkins / Mike Evans

“ Never been a fan of Sage. Are these guys on the same team? Did either make the Pros? Also should printing plates even be in the "Random Card Of The Day" queue? Shouldn't just the card itself get that chance? Kind of unfair for older cards released before the card makers decided it would be a good idea to put the printing plates into packs after they made all the cards. ” -captkirk42

“ Cool! I think this is the first printing plate to come up as card of the day. I for one love printing plates...hard to believe next year will be their 20th anniversary. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ WOW, since they are so rare you almost never see 1 of 1 cards on here. NICE!!! ” -carthage44

“ I've never tried to scan a yellow printing plate but it can't be easy. ” -UKboogie

“ Is this the first Printing plate to hit RCOTD? First 1/1? If so, cool. ” -vrooomed

“ Printing plates are ok, I guess if you collect them. They don't do a lot for me. ” -Kaline6

Set: 1991 ProCards (Rate)

Card: #3028 Otis Green

“ I have a few cards from this set for an Orioles Minor team. I think the notepad look is pretty neat for what it is. If it were for the Major League teams then it would be a bit tacky. ” -captkirk42

“ Another ball levitator! ” -Kaline6

“ I really like this design. I think some minor league sets are better designed than the majors, actually. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ A notebook? Interesting! ” -DarkSide830

“ Yes, I don't care what you say. This card is awesome! I love the pose and the sweet jersey. ” -RoyalChief

“ Sweet notepad card. ” -carthage44

“ The first time I've actually seen the Mudville Nine version of the Ports.. ” -Mike67

“ This being his first year of professional baseball it will be hard to complain about a lack of stats. At least there is no chrome or foil lettering to complain about. It has a card number and isn't horizontal so we can't complain about those either. I like minor league sets. They bring some fun to the kids in the cities whose parents take them to the games. And every now and then one of the players makes it big! ” -UKboogie

Set: 1984 Fleer (Rate)

Card: #288 Chris Speier

“ Good design. I always liked Fleer. He physically resembles one of my local card dealers. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ This was always my favorite of the early Fleer baseball designs. ” -UKboogie

“ The pitch is a little high. I love this set, always have, and was thrilled to finally get the update set to this one a little while back for a decent price. Looks GREAT in a binder! ” -vrooomed

“ That camera angle makes it look like he's trying to hit a looping, underhand slo-pitch. Wow! Over 1700 games of big league experience, and looks like he could be waiting tables at Olive Garden. Maybe he plays slo-pitch when not serving pasta... Supplementary "did you know": Drove in 8 runs in a single game in 1982. Drove in 26 runs in 113 games in 1979. ” -dilemma19

“ Cool Pre-Junk (or beginning of Junk) Fleer. Odd that this is now part of DC Baseball History yet wasn't back then. :) ” -captkirk42

“ That's fun photography. ” -wax_house

“ Solid and gets the job done. Typical of 80's cards. Love it! ” -carthage44

“ He can't seriously be thinking about swinging at that pitch, even if it is BP. ” -NJDevils

“ SWEET card! Looks like he is going to be way late on that swing. Must be taking. :) ” -RoyalChief

“ LOL. Great pic. "Hey, where'd the ball go?" "It's stuck to your bat. Now quit using so much pine tar!" One of Fleer's better early designs. Nice and simple. ” -C2Cigars

Set: 2010 Panini Crown Royale - Royalty Materials (Rate)

Card: #14 Troy Polamalu

“ Is that a card or a whiskey label ? ” -uncaian

“ Nice Card! And all around Nice guy! Can't believe the Chiefs did not take him, they traded down to take...Larry Johnson :( ” -RoyalChief

“ Holy clutter! ” -carthage44

“ At first glance this looks like a very luxurious card. Then you see a one-color swatch, no autograph, and SN299. I like Polamau, but this card is destined for a dollar bin or a bulk relic cards auction. ” -dilemma19

“ G..a..r..b..a..g..e ” -NJDevils

“ Very royale indeed. I think this card is nice. ” -DarkSide830

Set: 2004 UD Diamond Pro Sigs (Rate)

Card: #72 Drew Brees

“ Drew Brees. then Phillip Rivers? I would say Drew Brees is slightly better. Rivers needs some help around him. ” -RoyalChief

“ Hope you liked the photo on the front of the card, because here it is again on the back! ” -dilemma19

“ They really wore out these facemale signatures. ” -carthage44

“ Nice card except the foil/leaf printing should be regular printing. I can take or leave the faux signature even though that is the selling point of the set. ” -captkirk42

“ I wonder how charger fans feel about brees (since he left), miss him, or love rivers? ” -mzentko

“ Nice use of silver. Never much a fan of cut out pictures, though. ” -cjjt

“ My favorite quarterback, stand up guy on and off the field. Has done so much for Louisiana, and he continues to break records! Even though I don't collect football much, might be time to start collecting him! ” -Joshua825

Set: 1992 Stadium Club (Rate)

Card: #323 Hector Wagner

“ Stadium Club was a nice addition to the Topps line in 1991. Clean photo, interesting stats on back. ” -Kaline6

“ LET'S GO ROYALS!!! I must say don't remember much of this guy, and I love me some Stadium Club...except when they stick together. ” -RoyalChief

“ I still have a love/hate with Stadium Club. There are many things I like/love about it many things I hate. Like the front but would like team name and logo, back would prefer more career stats. I sort of like the "rookie" card bit. ” -captkirk42

“ I really liked the older Stadium Club cards especially with a photo of the rookie card on the back ” -Mike67

“ I just saw this one last night when I was pulling some for another trade.. ” -mzentko

“ I fell in love with Stadium Club for the first few years. Borderless, uncluttered fronts, great photos, colourful backs with unique stats, even a mini-pic of the player's Topps RC or FTC! This one however: Generic photograph of a forgettable player. ” -dilemma19

“ I always liked how they put the rookie card on the back of this Stadium Club design. Unfortunately in my preferred sport (NBA) Topps had last produced an NBA set more than a decade previously so most of the players had cards from that season...some even pictured itself. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Too many staged player photos in this set. Like the action shots better. ” -carthage44

“ February 13, 2012- I remember scanning this card! ” -Dave Sosidka

“ I do not remember this guy AT ALL. I've never seen this card before. I like it. It's one of the few early Stadium Club designs that I liked, in any sport. I want it. My collection feels a little more incomplete because I own no cards of a guy in a mainstream 1992 set. Shame on me. ” -switzr1

“ Never heard of Hector but Stadium Club was a step in the right direction for Topps. ” -UKboogie

Set: 1995 SkyBox Pocahontas (Rate)

Card: #39 "You Killed Him!"

“ I've still never heard a wolf cry to the blue corn moon. ” -jupiterhill

“ Disney movies used to be good. Then this one came out. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I prefer Beauty and the Beast and probably Lion King over this garbage. I love these random cards! ” -RoyalChief

“ Nice Non-Sport. I'm usually not a fan of the full "bleed" front image. Without any sort of border or writing this could very easily just be a postcard if it was the right dimensions but it isn't it is a standard trading card size. BTW I miss Skybox in some ways. ” -captkirk42

“ I can imagine some poor 1st grader getting suspended at school for carrying this card. What a society we live in. ” -NJDevils

“ Very good movie! ” -carthage44

“ He Shoots! He scores! Oh wait, wrong sport. Who'd thought you'd ever see, "You Killed Him" on a Disney card? ” -Kaline6

“ At least no one can complain about the foil or lack of stats on the back. ” -UKboogie

Set: 2010-11 O-Pee-Chee (Rate)

Card: #399 Toni Lydman

“ O-Pee-Chee appears to be very popular with the Hockey fans. ” -carthage44

“ Played 7 seasons in the NHL.I like this set EXCEPT FOR THE LACK OF A WRITE UP!!!! ” -uncaian

“ Yuck. Ugly color scheme. And those darn player's photos keep getting in the way of all the graphics. It'd also be nice to be able to tell which card company made these. ” -C2Cigars

“ Okay, Card manufacturer logo: check. Team logo: check. Player name and position: legible under magnification. And look. There's a bit of room left over! Maybe we should add a picture. Careful not to make it too big though... ” -dilemma19

“ Nice OPC card. Love the retro unbleached cardboard I wish all the card makers still used the vintage "card stock" and not the modern thinner "paper stock" ” -captkirk42
