Set: 2011 Press Pass Stealth - U.S. Military (Rate)

Card: #US-AF Air Force

“ Highway to the Danger Zone! ” -carthage44

“ I can't see it! Curse you stealth technology... ” -dilemma19

“ Awesome. Doesn't get much better than this, in my opinion. Each branch of the military git a card but finding any except the Coast Guard was not easy. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Cool! ” -bkklaos

“ Nice shot! I had a view like this catching a military hop across the Atlantic in a KC-10 tanker. The crew in the tanker cycled the passengers, two at a time, to the back so we could watch the refueling. There were 5 F-15s being ferried back to the states and they topped them off with fuel every 15 minutes to make sure they had a full tank in case of an emergency. But with a brand name of Stealth, you would think Press Pass with have picked a stealth aircraft like the B-2 or F-117. ” -CluelessJoe

“ Very, very nice. Did not know these existed. Thank you, Mr. RCOTD ” -NJDevils

“ Cool Random card. Wish the back photo was slightly different. Hmm must not be many in this set or insert set with the card number being letters US-AF. ” -captkirk42

“ Very cool photo. Nice card design as well. Not a set I'm familiar with, but I wouldn't mind having some in my collection. ” -switzr1

Set: 1990 Pro Set (Rate)

Card: #538 Marcus Allen

“ One of my favourite sets, large selection of players and some great action shots ” -aussiewayne

“ Don't really collect football cards (I have some of former college players I like), but this is a cool cards. Marcus Allen in the silver and black would almost always look good. ” -joshthurman

“ I really like the early Pro Set designs. I wish the NBA had given them a license. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Love this set. Over 800 cards in the set and a bunch of very rare error cards. ” -carthage44

“ A Pro-Set. Which set upon the world much as locusts did to the Egyptians during the story of the Exodus. A hoard of cardboard dumped and chocking out all those standing before them. More trees were destroyed between Pro-Set Football and Hockey than a trillion beavers descending upon the great forests of North America. That being said they were well designed aesthetically. ” -rmpaq5

“ In my opinion still one of the best sets of the overproduction years of the 1990s. ” -captkirk42

“ I ProSet's football and hockey issues quite a bit. Photos were good, cards were colourful, decent write-ups. Reminds me a lot of Score. ” -dilemma19

“ Love Pro Set. Over produced but great sets. ” -cjjt

“ Very clean cut, but not too boring. Not bad one bit. Add of course its a Marcus Allen. That makes this card something worthy of my collection. ” -DarkSide830

“ Legendary player, not-so-legendary set. ” -DanD

Set: 1993 Stadium Club - 1st Day Production (Rate)

Card: #227 Ken Hill

“ Ken Hill makes me think about that 1994 Montreal Expos team that was so talented and leading at the strike. Could they have won the World Series? How would that have changed the move to Washington? ” -joshthurman

“ Neat. Early Stadium Club are cool, and the rare parallel? I like it even more. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I remember pulling one of these 1st Day Production cards in a pack back in the day, I was so excited! ” -carthage44

“ Briefly a stud pitcher for the Cardinals an Expos. Then he probably went to the Yankees or Rangers and (as tended to happen to stud pitchers on those two rosters in the 90s) his talent evaporated. Nice borderless card, and solid photographs. SC stats were always a bit confusing, but credit for originality and bonus points for the rookie card (or first Topps issue). ” -dilemma19

“ Ah Stadium Club. The only thing I would add to this front would be the team logo probably upper right corner, and team name under player's name. Back looks real crowded but seems to have lots of great info. I like having the (Topps) Rookie Card on the back. I sort of wish this edition didn't have the extra pic on the back and just had the RC. ” -captkirk42

“ I always liked the first day parallels, but man they were so difficult to pull! ” -Joshua825

Set: 1998 Dart FlipCards Titanic (Rate)

Card: #31 Queenstown Harbour

“ Get off! Get off the boat now!!! Too soon? ” -rmpaq5

“ I had no idea this set existed. That'll go on the wantlist. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Where these used to throw darts at? Because that's about all they are good for. ” -carthage44

“ Nice card of my favorite ocean liner. ” -dilemma19

“ Nice card. Dang at first I thought it was a vintage tobacco non-sport card (until I saw the back and the date) but its modern. ” -captkirk42

“ Cool ! If you look close enough ,you can see DiCaprio & Winslet . ” -uncaian

“ This is kind of cool, now that I see it is about the actual voyage, and not the movie. ” -switzr1

“ Nice non-sport for a change. ” -NJDevils

“ I can't wait for the release of the 2017 Topps French Impressionist set. Seriously???? ” -muskie027

Set: 2013 Topps Star Wars Galactic Files Series 2 (Rate)

Card: #697 Mon Calamari

“ Yum ” -DarkSide830

“ Galactic Files is probably my favorite Star Wars set. Although some of the text was dumbed down on some of the cards I still enjoy looking at and reading the backs of them. What other set gave cards to planets? ” -Billy Kingsley

“ My Squid ? A planet of squid ? ” -uncaian

“ I love calamari. My favorite appetizer. Isn't this French for my calamari? I love star wars, but this card is just ok. I don't have much else to say about it. ” -muskie027

“ Nice Random card, but WOW a STAR WARS Card? I thought it was a Stargate card at first. LOL Any way it is a very plain card I hope most of the other cards in this set are more interesting looking. ” -captkirk42

Set: 2002-03 Be a Player First Edition (Rate)

Card: #105 Sergei Fedorov

“ I have never heard of this brand of cards, Be a Player??? ” -carthage44

“ Nice card. I like how it lists the various firsts of his career on the back. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Only one year of stats on the back and then career totals a negative, but the many quick facts about career and good action shot overcome this in my opinion. ” -rmpaq5

“ One of the most exciting players to watch on one of the least exciting cards to look at . ” -uncaian

“ It isn't bad, but a little rearranging would make It better. Where First Edition advertised their logo, that should be replaced with the player name. Where the player name is, that should be the team name or position. Picture, color, logo, and template look good. The company could shrink their name and get it into a corner or on the back. I like it, but it could have been better. ” -muskie027

“ Nice all around card. Plus that all the stuff on the front can be read no foil. Cool. That is one of the reasons I tend to like the "First Edition" sets they usually have regular printing where the later "regular" sets will have a ton of leaf foil printing. ” -captkirk42

“ Very plain, but also right to the point. ” -DarkSide830

Set: 2014 Topps Pro Debut (Rate)

Card: #129 Adam Weisenburger

“ Nice card. Interesting that the same photo was used the year before in the Choice brand team set for Huntsville. ” -switzr1

“ Great scan, and the card has everything you could want in it. 1031st? Wow! I had no idea baseball's draft was so large. Glad to see someone drafted so low getting some cardboard. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Getting a little more modern for our run of MiLB cards as Card of the Day. Wish Topps wouldn't use the same designs as their MLB set for these. Great photo. ” -rmpaq5

“ I enjoy the Pro Debut cards because I like seeing the minor leaguers on cards with the big league design. It also gives the opportunity to see more of the minor league logos, many of which are really cool. ” -vrooomed

“ Topps still does a great job of giving you lots of stats and information on the back of their cards. ” -carthage44

“ Great photo! Design is nothing exciting ” -dilemma19

“ Nice all around card. I am just getting tired of Topps having so many different sets. ” -captkirk42

“ Good for him, getting a card despite being drafted after more than 1000 other players ” -Brimose

“ Not sure why, but nothing is really standing out here. OVerall, a very big, eh. ” -muskie027

“ Twelve letters in a last name is pretty good but Saltalamacchia has 14. ” -joshthurman

Set: 2010-11 Upper Deck Ice (Rate)

Card: #62 Kyle Clifford

“ Yikes. I am not really a fan of this. Very bland and do we need the word Premieres twice? ” -muskie027

“ Not a bad card , but I wish the serial numbers would end at a 100.That would make a true "limited edition". ” -uncaian

“ Nice! I love the clear plastic cards. I don't recall ever seeing a card from this season as card if the day before, but I could be wrong. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I like the serial number on the back. More of a surprise! ” -carthage44

“ Acetate/translucent cards are a perfect fit for hockey. I wish I could read the name, team and position on the front as easily as "Premieres", "ICE" and "Upper Deck". The information is clearly presented on the back, but that's where I would have wanted to see some stats or an interesting fact about Clifford. Solid player by the way. ” -dilemma19

“ Ooh an acetate Random Card of the Day. I used to really hate these things. I think it was mostly because the should be scanned against white or a very light color. ” -captkirk42

“ I like the Ice acetate look and feel. the RC's in these sets are attainable and good looking. ” -suomibear8

“ I wonder if this card is clear and the white border is the scanner lid. I can see print from the reverse. ” -switzr1

“ I love cards with clear spots or done on acetate. The first year UD Ice set was just amazing. This is no exception. ” -vrooomed

Set: 1996 Stadium Club - Contact Prints (Rate)

Card: #CP7 Darnell Walker / Bernie Parmalee

“ Dude is giving other dude the Anderson Spinebuster. As a wrestling fan, I can appreciate this. I've never seen this card before, but it may be my new favorite football card ever. ” -switzr1

“ Great action shot of two nobody's in the NFL. ” -carthage44

“ I'd say Darnell won this battle. Great action shot. ” -rmpaq5

“ Cool insert. My whole body aches just from looking at the photo. ” -dilemma19

“ Pretty cool looking card actually. Shame it was during the super overproduction years. The back on the other hand suffers with the odd typeface. ” -captkirk42

“ Are we sure this isn't an XFL card? ” -sahal694

“ Pretty cool insert. Love the picture, and the background, although busy, works for this card. Also, it is nice to see a real tackle instead of the lower your head and run into a guy. As an ex-player, it is good to see the fundamentals. No head shot, stick your shoulder in the gut, keep your head on the ball side, and....WRAP EM UP!!!!!! ” -muskie027

“ Looks like someone is about to take a nasty spinebuster! ” -DaClyde

Set: 1988 ProCards (Rate)

Card: #1467 Bob Patterson

“ At first glance the top of his glove looked like a small pizza to me. maybe I am just sleep deprived. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Love this run of MiLB cards. Yes, there are areas that can be picked apart, however, if you were collecting these when they came out, you would understand how good they were for the time. Just 5-10 years prior to this set, most MiLB sets used B&W photos! ” -vrooomed

“ We really have had quite a few Minor League Baseball cards appear lately, much as we had quite a few Soccer Gaming Cards appear in a short time span a few months ago. The design is plain, but a good plain. Nothing trying to make it more than it is. The logos of minor league teams of this era rock, and once again for the era the Bison's uniforms are classic and not some sort of tight fitting spandex with T-Shirt style jerseys. ” -rmpaq5

“ No. 1467 in a set of 2178 !?!? Man , full time baseball card collectors must some dedicated . I freaked out when hockey sets (base) went up to 600.Nice picture. ” -uncaian

“ Hmmm... I'm almost 40 and haven't had much of a sniff as a major league pitcher. Maybe it's time to put on a trapper and switch to 1B. ” -dilemma19

“ He's either a left handed third basemen or he made the stretch at first on a throw from right field... ” -wax_house

“ He can catch his own pitch. He is the most interesting man in the world. ” -sahal694

“ ...and the award for the best look-a-like of the 1983 Fleer Baseball set goes to... 1988 ProCards Minor League Baseball set. Accepting the award is South Paw Bob Patterson from the Buffalo Bisons. Bob has gotten his ERA down to 2.32 this year and is 2 and 0 in 4 games pitched. ” -captkirk42

“ Minor League baseball teams have the best logos/team mascots. ” -carthage44

“ I'm a sucker for minor league cards. Seeing new logos is fun. They sure didn't focus on the back of the card though. I also love that in baseball so many of the guys just look like some guy you would see on the street. Not easily recognized as an athlete. ” -Mitch

“ Most unnatural looking catch ever. ” -DanD
