Set: 2000 Fleer Tradition (Rate)

Card: #11 Matt Mantei

“ The older I get, the less I like this design. I thought it was great when I first saw it used, in the NBA set, back in 2000. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ These seemed kind of cool when they came out, like a cross between the '57 and '58 Topps cards, but I think what charm they had was likely undone by the Topps Heritage cards, which were pretty charming. ” -revnorb

“ Hate these printed on auto cards. ” -carthage44

“ "... Did I leave the oven on...?" ” -jackal726

“ Mantei wore number 31, so I wonder what significance the 25 written on his cap has. ” -jlaz10

“ I'm new to the database. Stupid question, but how do you add more than 1 of the same set to your collection? ” -BOBSCARZ

“ Reminds me of the old cartoons where the character has a devil on one shoulder and an angel on the other. ” -Id8jlb8666

Set: 2007 Upper Deck (Rate)

Card: #917 Kevin Correia

“ I don't like the placement of the name, relative to the pose. ” -switzr1

“ Great card. Nice photo, and the size of the set is great. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Not a bad card. Nothing spectacular either. ” -vrooomed

“ I didn't like how the color of the name script didn't stand out, and how it blends into the background. It can make it hard to read. ” -suomibear8

“ Yes, '57 is my favorite year. As I mentioned before, I got Yogi Berra (my idol) in a penny pack back then. Later defaced him, Frank Robinson and a few others with the first new age marking pens to hit the market, "Magic Markers". But what else can a six year old do with his cards beside put them in he spokes of his bike. Still have the cards. ” -NJdevils

“ I do not like all the blank space on the back of the card. They could have wrote some information about the player there but I think Upper Deck was giving up at this point. ” -carthage44

“ By all means, show us how the Blend tool works in Photoshop again! ” -revnorb

“ The Giants really need a new home set. The cream looks horrible and the lack of numbers or piping leaves the jersey practically blank. ” -jlaz10

Set: 1981 O-Pee-Chee (Rate)

Card: #42 Jerry White

“ He's sure enjoying himself. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I'm a sucker for the hat and the team name or logo on it. ” -carthage44

“ I kinda miss those Expos uniforms. ” -cckeith

“ That tri-color Expos cap is just a beaut. Bring back the Expos! ” -jlaz10

“ OPC - why do I love OPC cards so much? Not sure, maybe it was because they were so hard to get back when I was a kid. Maybe it was the whiter card stock. It certainly wasn't the ragged edges and off-centered cutting. But I do love them. ” -vrooomed

Set: 2000 Decipher Star Trek Reflections 1.0 (Rate)

Card: #NNO1 10 and 01


“ Looks like the pre-steroids era...except for the large Bonds-like head. ” -NJdevils

“ 1001010010 1111010110101 11010111001100110 110110101010111010 10 1010101001011101 000101 And that's why I don't speak binary. ” -Dixxy

Set: 1974 Topps (Rate)

Card: #385 Ted Hendricks

“ Two vintage football on consecutive days...I like the card back on the previous card better, but this card front is of a higher aesthetic quality. I wonder how he got that nickname? ” -Billy Kingsley

“ The Mad Stork ” -thesemers

“ Classic football cards. It doesn't get any better! ” -carthage44

“ Ted "Too Tall Jones" Hendricks. ” -wax_house

“ I always liked this set. I also had the board game where the cards had this design but the numbers were different. Also happens to be the year of my birth. ” -switzr1

“ Love the goalpost! ” -NJDevils

“ Those are what UCLA stripes are supposed to look like! Going all the way around the shoulder. ” -jlaz10

“ I can only picture this guy as a Raider. ” -deporcoruña

Set: 1971 Topps (Rate)

Card: #189 Dave Wilcox

“ Really like the card back here. A true biography. To me cards are a way to document history, and Topps succeeded here. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I'll never forget his debut for the 49ers in '64. Amazing stuff! ” -lonhro

“ Beautiful football jersey! Sleeves and everything! And full stripes! ” -jlaz10

“ I wish I was born in the 60's so I could have collected these amazing cards! ” -carthage44

Set: 1994 Cornerstone Master of Japanese Animation (Rate)

Card: #2 Opening / Ending

“ I not care for Japanese animation at all. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Now I graduated high school the year of this card but it is beyond me. I'm clueless... my only guess is it was directed at kids well below high school age. Give me a good baseball or football card any day. ” -OKJefe

“ I have no idea what anything on the back of this card means. I guess the front is a good drawing, if you're into that sort of thing. The logo-haters should be please that there is no company logo on the front. ” -switzr1

“ Probably looking at what I'm looking at. ” -NJdevils

“ Somehow, even though Dixxy didn't submit this scan, I feel like Dixxy is ultimately responsible for it. ” -jackal726

“ No clue what this is but I like the artwork, kind of reminds me of 7 Samurai ” -Joshua825

Set: 1996 Score (Rate)

Card: #45 Kevin Ritz

“ After 1993, I wasn't a big fan of Score's designs. I didn't like their product logo either, and consider them to be lower end than some of the other lower end products. ” -suomibear8

“ Looks like he is puttin' on the RITZ. ” -koloth42

“ It's odd how old this uniform set looks just by the style and cut. The same logos and design are used today, but the baggier pants distinguish it from the tight-fitting style of yesteryear. ” -jlaz10

“ Nice-looking Score set. I actually liked most of their base sets. The picture is definitely the center of attention here, which I like. ” -switzr1

Set: 1957 Topps (Rate)

Card: #337 Rene Valdes

“ If not the best set ever, one of the best. And historic! Our first 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 inch cards. It became the standard. ” -vrooomed

“ One of my favorite vintage sets.....simple and appealing. ” -suomibear8

“ Love, love ,love the old baseball cards !!!!! ” -uncaian

“ Vintage cards are always cool. This may be the most obscure baseball player to make Card of the Day- he only has two cards, and this appears to be the only card issued during his career. Vintage + obscure = Winner in my book! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Like the all around design, simple but still looks nice. ” -Joshua825

“ Brooklyn Dodgers. 'Nuf said. ” -jlaz10

Set: 1994 Topps (Rate)

Card: #111 Patrick Robinson

“ It sure looks like this is a gold parallel put in as a base card to me. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Good set of cards. Would still like that Logo on the front. ” -NJDevils

“ These Bengals unis were lost in the '80s. ” -jlaz10

“ This could possibly be one of the best football cards I've seen. Not being sarcastic. You can see his face in a great action photo and the back is clean and full of good stats. ” -vrooomed

“ The good old days ” -Orioles man
