Set: 2004-05 Ultra (Rate)

Card: #18 Chris Wilcox

“ Reminds me of the 1996-97 Ultra. I like the back on this set a lot. And it's a really good photo on the front. I hope he didn't get a technical foul for hanging on the rim! ” -switzr1

“ Love the 2004-05 Ultra set...the last one produced by Fleer before they went out of business. Great photos, colorful card backs and nameplates on the front that pay homage to earlier Ultra sets. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Huh?!? What could the guy in the background possibly be looking at? I realize your team's being dunked on, but turn your head dude, the play is at 9 o'clock. On the back: Plenty of blank space, but Fleer had nothing to say about Chris Wilcox. If I owned this card, I'd try try to fill the void by asking Mr. Wilcox for an autograph by mail. ” -dilemma19

“ Good old Fleer Ultra. Fleer Ultra that is where I look for this set first, I keep forgetting some years it was just listed under ULTRA. Wish both searches linked to same actual checklist. Even though they used foil for the name it is readable. Most foil texts are not. Standard would like team name, logo and players position. Back needs bio/info in that space at the bottom. ” -captkirk42

“ I'm torn on this one. Part of me likes the big open space on the back and part of me wishes it had been used. Overall a decent card. Is that Brent Barry in the background. He doesn't seem too interested in the play. ” -Mitch

“ I like this design a lot. ” -wax_house

“ Lotsa real estate on the back of this card. Nice action shot though. ” -Kaline6

“ The lack of any type of info on the back and just blank white space is terrible. ” -carthage44

“ Why is there so much blank space on the back? And since that's the case, why are the stats so small? ” -ketchupman36

Set: 2003 Pokemon EX Dragon (Rate)

Card: #22 Vibrava

“ This guy doesn't look so dangerous. I suppose he can destroy my entire city in a second, but only if the coin toss comes up heads. I totally don't get the appeal of games like this. ” -switzr1

“ Good times spent with the kids playing this game ” -SFC Temple

“ Yup, sure. I don't have a clue what is going on. ” -RoyalChief

“ Sorry Dixxy...I was betting it was your scan before I clicked "write one"...there I go "stereotyping" again! Don't collect Pokémon, but still like the variety on RCotD! ” -bkklaos

“ Pokemon I don't even begin to pretend to know how to play the game. Don't collect them either even if some of them can be pretty valuable both from a monetary stand point and a game stand point. ” -captkirk42

“ Oooo a rare Ground/Dragon type. ” -wax_house

“ Certainly not the best Poke. Wonder how many different Pokémon cards have been made overall... ” -DarkSide830

“ Seems complicated. ” -carthage44

“ This is one of the very few cards/genres I wouldn't collect ” -volbox

Set: 2013 Topps Allen & Ginter - Mini Black (Rate)

Card: #183 Ryan Ludwick

“ Love the tobacco-sized minis. Always liked Ludwick in STL too. ABSOLUTELY HATE the written-out numbers for the stats in A&G. So good front, bad back. ” -switzr1

“ I like the mini cards, except when I am moving through a handful of cards and they drop out. Luckily, none of mine have gotten damaged that way, but it's more luck than skill. As they say, I'd rather be lucky than good! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I really like these Allen and Ginter's. Along side Gypsy Queen and maybe Turkey Red, it is my favorite right now. ” -RoyalChief

“ I used to love all the A&G minis, but now I will only pursue my homie teams and PC players if at all. I still want to get all the full regular sized sets. Black mini this year it looks very cool, some years not so cool. ” -captkirk42

“ Not a fan of A&G. ” -NJdevils

“ Is it just me or are the mini cards very annoying? ” -carthage44

“ These mini black cards look valuable. But they're not. ” -dilemma19

Set: 2003-04 SPx (Rate)

Card: #51 Richard Jefferson

“ This is a kind of cool card. I like holograms. I expect to be in the minority. ” -switzr1

“ He started for both Nets teams that went to the finals, but his refusal to go after offensive rebounds didn't help them any. (he was not the only Net who that can be said about). Very frustrating for me as the Nets have always been my favorite team. He's still in the NBA with the Cavs, and I fully expect them to make the finals this year too...He's one of many players Panini doesn't bother to give cards to. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Weird design. Weirder pictures. ” -cjjt

“ Too many wavy lines. Trying to be too artistic. ” -carthage44

“ Lots of potential but a lot of wasted space front and back. Not sure what look they are going for? Has he been shrunk down to only 3 inches and is dribbling past his own card? ” -captkirk42

“ A bit busy and hard to read, but overall a nice card front and back. I'd enjoy collecting a baseball set with a design similar to this one. ” -dilemma19

“ Fine as an insert design, but a whole set of these is a waste of time. ” -wax_house

“ What...a...mess! The only good thing about this card is...I DON'T OWN IT. ” -C2Cigars

Set: 1996-97 Donruss (Rate)

Card: #159 Theo Fleury

“ This card is a winner in my book. Large clear photo, everything is easy to read, lots of stats on the back. The only thing missing is home town. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ One of the best "little" men that ever play . Scrappy & could score. Not a bad set at all considering the era it came from. ” -uncaian

“ Gotta love a 5 foot 6 captain. ” -carthage44

“ Nice name for an ice hockey player Fleury. Front half-way good design. Not sure what is up with the star in the circle, but they seem to have catered them to the team colors. Back like that they have the career stats but I think they should have kept the large photo out, and then used remaining bottom space for a brief bio or career highlights. ” -captkirk42

“ Not too shabby. Good photo. Again, I do not like a camouflaged number on the back ” -NJDevils

Set: 2015-16 Panini Prestige - NBA Passport (Rate)

Card: #PAS-PC Pat Connaughton

“ Wow... If this was a baseball set, there would be 16 parallels of it, signatures in different inks and whatever other gimmicks they could come up with.. Maybe pieces of expired passports?? ” -Mike67

“ He wants to be a multi-sport athlete- he has offers from the MLB- but the Blazers forbid him from playing baseball in the off season. I'm not sure why, as they mostly refuse to play him. He's only gotten a chance to play 30 of the Blazers' 76 games, and at that only 109 minutes combined. Cool card design. Prestige was a Target exclusive release, but I was not lucky enough to pull any autographs from this season's release. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Like my thoughts on most all the Panini cards I see, don't care for it. ” -Kaline6

“ Interesting concept. Can't say I dislike it. ” -DarkSide830

“ Really like this card. It's an auto, serial numbered and a creative design. ” -carthage44

“ Excellent use of a polo shirt on an NBA card. ” -UKboogie

“ I "pass" on the passport. ” -NJDevils

“ Pat....Pat....time to wake up.... ” -Joshua825

“ LOL...Oh so many things to say. I will let you all and enjoy the comments. You can't show up drunk for your drivers license or passport. ” -RoyalChief

“ I feel like this could be identity theft... ” -suomibear8

“ I don't think I like anything about this, although it does capture the awkwardness of a real passport photo. ” -switzr1

“ Looks more like a mug shot than passport picture. ” -cjjt

“ What am I looking at a driver's license? Oh its a trading card, which sport? Oh Basketball. Oh its a "Passport" got ya. Um fail Panini. ” -captkirk42

“ SMH. I think I have a new winner (or should I say loser) for worst card design concept. I won't go into the Title 18 US Code violations. ” -C2Cigars

“ Wonder if any of these "passport" cards are printed with expiry dates? ” -dilemma19

“ Interesting looking card. ” -a1allstar

Set: 1995 Finest (Rate)

Card: #227 Mike Macfarlane

“ It totally slipped my mind he played for other teams besides the Royals. ” -jupiterhill

“ Not sure which aspect I like better: The "vertical blinds" background (on both the front and back!) or the name, blurb card number, etc. written in uber-high-tech font... So much to love. ” -dilemma19

“ Needs team name and team logo. Player position would be nice. NOT Topps "Finest" by any means. Back is OK but would be better with more complete stats. ” -captkirk42

“ Good ol Mike Macfarlane. Solid catcher for the Royals for quite a few years. Question peel or don't peel? ” -RoyalChief

“ Sorry to say, not my favorite set by a long shot. Topps at its worst IMO. ” -engine614

“ Crazy good scan for a chrome based card. ” -carthage44

“ These sets are way too condition sensitive for my collector's taste. ” -suomibear8

Set: 2001 Topps American Pie (Rate)

Card: #78 Sam McDowell

“ Never heard of this set! Feel during a period I was on a "sabbatical" from collecting! ” -bkklaos

“ How did I miss this set? Ah 2001 during my hiatus away from new cards. I thought I had caught up to at least seeing all the stuff I had missed before. How did I miss this one again? Might need to look into getting this set. ” -captkirk42

“ Would probably be in the Hall had he played on a team better than Cleveland (i.e. he'd have more of those nefarious "wins") for the majority of his great career. ” -wax_house

“ Nice looking card of an often-overlooked pitcher. Think I'll have to find me some of these cards... ” -dilemma19

“ OK, I have never heard of this set. Looking at his face first I thought it said "Angry Pie". I like it...wonder what Royals are available. ” -RoyalChief

“ The sleeveless uniform top is probably my favorite design. I don't like the card design. The "heady" border is the worst part. And I really find it aggravating when mixed sets are listed as Baseball. ” -C2Cigars

“ These American Pie cards were a HUGE bust. ” -carthage44

Set: 2016 Topps Opening Day (Rate)

Card: #OD-126 Ian Kinsler

“ The 2016 design is a big let down after 2015, which I thought was a great design. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ It's a Tiger, it's a Topps. I like the 2016 edition. ” -Kaline6

“ First 2016? Nice action shot. Love those. ” -RoyalChief

“ Eek I'm getting used to the '16 design. I didn't like it at first but it is growing on me. Wish they would have they had sized things properly so the team logo actually fit into the corner triangle, the don't need it to be a fancy "picture frame corner bracket" triangle. Back is fine still miss the cartoons/comics though. Like the numbering has OD for opening day so when looking at just the backs of cards you can identify it from the flagship set. ” -captkirk42

“ I like the Opening Day sets. Best cards of the Series 1 and 2 Topps and it is feasible to collect a true master set. I could however, do without the variations and purple Toys R Us parallels. ” -CluelessJoe

“ Cool card. This picture is so good, they will probably reuse it in all their other 2016 issues. ” -switzr1

“ I love how they are adding WAR to the list of stats on the back of baseball cards. ” -carthage44

“ Great picture! ” -cjjt

Set: 1952 Topps Wings Friend or Foe (Rate)

Card: #32 C-74 Globemaster I

“ One of my all-time favorite non-sports sets. This was my very first card from the set, which I purchased at a card show sometime in the mid 1990s. At the time it was the oldest card in my collection. I don't know why I got it when I did as I did not become a true airplane fan until 2009, roughly 15 years later. I've worked on this set extensively over the years and I'm fairly close to completing it, roughly 20 cards away, although not all of them in my collection are in great shape, I'm thrilled just to have them. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Once again Billy, cool RCotD! ” -bkklaos

“ I'm going to have to go with.....friend!! ” -RoyalChief

“ Billy, that is one nice set you've got there! ” -CluelessJoe

“ Just a wonderful card. ” -NJdevils

“ Very cool vintage Non-Sport. Back when trading cards were real trading cards. I have 2 or 3 cards from this set. If I ever complete this set it would be soo cool. ” -captkirk42

“ Since my grandfather was a gunner on a plane similar to this one in WWII, VERY COOL! ” -carthage44

“ Man! Back in the day, I remember trading two "C-74 Globemasters" and a "Comanche helicopter" for a "Dassault Mirage F1" card. Did I ever take that other kid to the cleaners! ” -dilemma19

“ I suggest a comparison of the backs of this set and the 1952 Topps set. They are almost the same, despite their obvious differences in subject matter. Neat looking overall. ” -DarkSide830
