Set: 1982 Topps (Rate)

Card: #412 Toussaint Tyler

“ Love the basicness of the 80's design. ” -suomibear8

“ One of my favorite sets. Great front design. The blue-on-yellow back is hard to read, though. "Too-San" only lasted "two seasons". It wasn't a good time to be a Saint. ” -C2Cigars

“ Cool name. ” -dah15

“ The man even has "Saint" in his name! I like the Topps cards from the era before the proliferation of all the other brands. ” -Kaline6

“ one of my first set of football cards to collect. ” -addysdaddy

“ This was the first football card set I ever collected and I still think this is the best design Topps every had for a football set. I can remember buying rack pack after rack pack and sorting them endlessly! ” -cckeith

“ Nice pre-Junk Wax Years '80s card. Real cardboard too. ” -captkirk42

“ Love the 82s, though in person the numbers can be a difficult to read at times ” -NJdevils

“ Topps rocked the 80's with their football cards. ” -carthage44

“ My favorite NFL player with his team name in his first name, the Saint named Toussaint. ” -UKboogie

Set: 2009-10 Panini Stickers (Rate)

Card: #319 Ryan O'Reilly

“ Pretty good design for a sticker. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ The 1989-90 NHL Panini sticker set pretty much started my collecting career and my youth hockey 'career'. I don't have any of these, but I do have a 14-15 complete in the book. ” -wax_house

“ Too much green. Looks like and old computer screen. ” -carthage44

“ Whoa a Panini Sticker! I think Panini should stick, pardon the pun, with just the stickers. ” -captkirk42

Set: 2004 Donruss Diamond Kings (Rate)

Card: #29 Garret Anderson

“ Too much border and DK logo, not enough player picture. ” -vrooomed

“ If it wasn't for the player's image getting in the way of the beautiful filigree and scroll work, this would be a beautiful card. Why do card companies waste so much space with player's images? Don't they know all we care about is tremendous amounts of design work. ” -C2Cigars

“ Pass ” -addysdaddy

“ Tried to rehash the Diamond Kings from to early 90's but they tried to class them up too much. ” -carthage44

“ I'm a big fan of the Diamond Kings art, but...Oh my! This looks terrible! ” -domentho

“ Whoah! My first thought here was that this was an old west wanted poster. "Have bat will travel." ” -koloth42

“ At first glance it looked like Ichiro in an Angels uniform. ” -EdTheStatMan

“ Hard to believe the back could be worse than the front. ” -NJDevils

Set: 2009 Grandstand Midland RockHounds (Rate)

Card: #NNO26 Gabe Ortiz

“ I like the design. The "Polaroid" against the grass background. The unique year & name font. The player's jersey on back. They all work for me. ” -C2Cigars

“ Interesting Minor League set. I thought this was a Sports Illustrated for Kids edition at first. ” -captkirk42

“ A postcard to let his friends know he won't be making it to the majors. ” -addysdaddy

“ By a million miles, the coolest minor league card I've ever seen. ” -wax_house

“ Polaroid in the grass. Very creative. ” -carthage44

“ I'm a big fan of MiLB sets and the individual cards. However, the font on the front in virtually unreadable to me. The back is fine although the "Baseball Club" looks very 2014 Donruss (where they don't have a license to use the team name). Meanwhile, other '09 GS sets were much nicer looking. ” -vrooomed

“ Not bad for a minor league card design. ” -koloth42

“ Can't tell if I like this or not? Probably on the not so much side. ” -Colts12

“ Never heard of this guy. ” -EdTheStatMan

Set: 2010 Upper Deck (Rate)

Card: #484 Dioner Navarro

“ Always liked Upper Deck cards. Like action photo's. I just wish they could get the whole player in the picture, not crop off a foot for example, and don't care for blank space on back of card. ” -Kaline6

“ Cards just need a border to look right in my opinion. ” -koloth42

“ not a fan, sorry UD ” -addysdaddy

“ Best thing - the series "2010 Upper Deck Baseball Series 1" is printed right on the card. ” -vrooomed

“ Would it kill companies to use a different photo on the reverse? ” -wax_house

“ I like the photography on these cards. The action shots are nice and the headshot on the bottom doesn't take anything away from the main photo ” -biggiofn7

“ For some reason I seem top like this set. Except for the difficulty to read the silver leaf printing. Hmmm didn't really notice the non-license thing for this set. I must have back 5 years ago but it didn't really bother me with this set for some reason. ” -captkirk42

“ This is when Upper Deck lost their MLB license and therefore could only use the city name not the team name. ” -carthage44

“ Nice card,when U.D. pulls in the reins they make nice product. Dioner plays for the Blue Jays now. ” -uncaian

“ Front's great. But do they really not have anything else for the back? Does he dig graves in the off-season? Is there one game that stood out? Ask me a trivia question. Anything but blank space. ” -Vvvergeer

Set: 1995 Upper Deck (Rate)

Card: #89 Darryl Strawberry

“ Great shot by Darryl ” -dah15

“ The foil name on the photo background is hard to read, even in person. Otherwise, not a bad design. ” -vrooomed

“ check out that grin..you know what he just got done doing.. ” -tonym

“ This was Upper Deck when it was on its way to being like the rest by making 100s of sub sets and parallels. no thanks UD. ” -addysdaddy

“ Bad photo choice. You can't read that name at all. ” -wax_house

“ An Upper Deck set I don't like. Also Darryl Strawberry looks weird in any uniform that isn't Mets. ” -captkirk42

“ He could have been one of the best if drugs didn't get in the way. ” -carthage44

Set: 1996-97 Pinnacle - Rink Collection (Rate)

Card: #3 Kevin Hatcher

“ Nice uncluttered front. Not a bad back either. ” -NJdevils

“ Even though these were pretty easy to discern from the base card, they put Rink Collection on the reverse - a nice touch - something I wish all companies would do for parallel sets. I thought the dufex effects looked good on hockey cards but not the other sports (gives the appearance of ice). ” -vrooomed

“ This would be a nice card if it wasn't for the etched foil. Never been a fan of any foil, refractor, chrome, etc. cards. I believe Kevin had his best years with the Caps and I'll always think of him in their uniform. ” -C2Cigars

“ Pinnacle had some nice sets this one I don't like the gold leaf on the bottom. ” -captkirk42

“ Great defenceman.Not a big fan of this set though. ” -uncaian

“ I bet the Blackhawks won the game. GO HAWKS!!! ” -carthage44

Set: 2003 Donruss Elite (Rate)

Card: #17 Carlos Lee

“ Foiled again. Same photo on the back. The back, I actually like. The front, well, maybe it's different in person. ” -vrooomed

“ A good player with the White Sox. Wish he was around longer with the team. ” -carthage44

“ I usually like the early Elite sets that had the official licensing. I don't like this one much, the back is OK but the front is sort of bland. ” -captkirk42

“ It would've looked a lot better if the background on the front of the card wasn't removed. ” -domentho

“ I don't like this design. The card kinda looks like it was put together from scraps. ” -biggiofn7

Set: 2014 Finest - Refractor (Rate)

Card: #21 Billy Hamilton

“ Great card and great scan. I love Refractors. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ 60+ years in business and their products just get worse and worse. Maybe if they concentrated on designing one or two products a year instead of over 1,000. ” -C2Cigars

“ Ah, Billy Hamilton. Not to be confused with "Sliding Billy" Hamilton of the late 1800s. ” -NJdevils

“ Topps really needs to rename "Finest". It rarely even is. ” -captkirk42

“ This refractor actually scanned very well. ” -carthage44

“ I WANT this card! It's the "Finest"! ” -domentho

“ That is one shiny card! This scan shows the true colors of a refractor. ” -suomibear8
