Set: 1992 Fleer (Rate)

Card: #223 Dave Eiland

“ 1992 Fleer would be one of the last years before I would go into my unintended hiatus from the hobby until around 2005/6 ” -captkirk42

“ The Royals current pitching coach. I liked this set a lot growing up, still do. ” -jupiterhill

“ I know many will probably pan this set, but I like it. ” -vrooomed

“ I really liked these cards as a kid. ” -suomibear8

“ Nothing ground-breaking about this set, but I've seen worse. I just bought a factory set of 1992 Fleer last week for $6.00, so not all bad! ” -cckeith

“ Anybody could have played in the majors back in the late 80's and early 90's. Dave here proved that. ” -carthage44

“ Not a bad looking set. Numbers are easy to read so they were easy to sort if you had hundreds of them. This is a set im sure I will eventually try to finish. ” -switzr1

Set: 1995 Upper Deck (Rate)

Card: #117 Lake Speed's Car

“ This was a great time in racing, and I consider 1994 the best year for their cards- when this photo is from. Totally unrelated to cards, but Lake Speed is the only driver who I know has seen a scale model I've built of his car. It wasn't this one, though, as I have been unable to master the bodywork required to build a 1994-95 Thunderbird. I'm missing this card from my collection...at 301 cards 1995 Upper Deck is the second largest NASCAR card set. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Lake's brothers Warp & Full never caught the racing fever. ” -uncaian

“ Boogity, boogity, boogity! ” -mkaz80

“ Nice card. I had to read the back to know if "Lake Speed" was the name of a driver or a race track or the car for that matter. NO I don't follow racing so forgive my ignorance those who do. ” -captkirk42

“ The driver's name is Lake Speed? HAHA, typical Nascar. ” -carthage44

“ Is Lake Speed his name? ” -switzr1

Card: #94 John Stones

“ Juan Piedras ” -volbox

“ Topps Standard TCG this time for Soccer. ” -captkirk42

“ Enough of these terrible Attax card. ” -carthage44

“ Always a pretty good bet that if it's "football", the scan was provided by nig3tel from "across the pond" from us here in the USA! ” -bkklaos

“ Wow there's a lot going on on this card. ” -cynicalbuddha

Set: 2007 Decifer Lord of the Rings CCG: Treachery and Deceit (Rate)

Card: #18O2 Radagast's Herb Bag (O)

“ No thanks. Not my cup of tea. ” -Duke

“ Loved the books (and I was not a big "reader" as a kid), but have never seen any of the movies! ” -bkklaos

“ -2 ” -volbox

“ What can be said when a CCG (TCG) is the RCotD? They are all basically the same, it is just how the game is played that is different. ” -captkirk42

“ I find after getting into Radagast's Herb Bag ,LoTR's is more fun to watch. ” -uncaian

“ Every time I see this card, I think of Catfish Hunter. ” -NJDevils

“ I would expect Radagast's herb bag to cause confusion and munchies. ” -jackal726

“ 100 dollar fine...times are changing... ” -SaveDaKid

Set: 1995-96 Upper Deck - Predictor Retail (Rate)

Card: #R26 Pavel Bure

“ Overall it was a good era in hockey card collecting, but I never liked these predictor cards, because as a finnish collector, I could never participate. Nevertheless Blackhawks predictor cards are must haves in own collection. ” -Duke

“ Never liked the Predictor cards. At least the scan is good! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Decent insert set with a means to have fans be able to get bonus cards if certain players did well. ” -vrooomed

“ The Russian Rocket,man could he move.This set is just another example of 90's overdone product. ” -uncaian

“ I don't think too many people sent these predictor's in. ” -carthage44

“ That crazy Upper Deck and the 1990s. ” -captkirk42

“ Pavel Bure forever ” -wax_house

Set: 1990 Topps (Rate)

Card: #365 Ozzie Guillen

“ My all time favorite Topps baseball design. Seriously! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ My inner 10 year old still thinks '90 Topps is the coolest. True, it's certainly a set that hasn't aged well. But I still have a big soft spot for an otherwise cringe-worthy design. ” -mkaz80

“ I must have liked them, I have thousands of them! :) Then again, maybe not. I know a lot of people like this design now, but it sure was reviled back in 1990. ” -vrooomed

“ I like this set ... enough variations to keep me busy. STILL looking for Frank Thomas NONAME ERROR,,,ugh!...~BOB~ ” -BOBSCARDZ

“ Many people hate this Topps set but I have always liked it. Granted sometime in the mid 90s when I thought I had a million of them, but only really had about 300 I got tired of it. I still need about 700 or so to finish the set, but I still like them. ” -captkirk42

“ Ozzie is one of the White Sox all-time greats/ A really good player and was the manger that brought the White Sox their first championship in 88 years back in 2005! ” -carthage44

“ Liked the design on the front, not so much on the back. But one of those sets that was overproduced which is sad since it looked decent. ” -Joshua825

“ 1990 TOPPS!!!!!!!!!! ” -SFC Temple

“ Here he is looking for Jay Mariotti. ” -wax_house

“ Good-looking Topps set. Now if only it wasn't Ozzie Guillen on the card! This is one of three Topps baseball sets I can think of off the top of my head where all the borders weren't the same color. 1975 and 2015 also. I've probably forgotten some though. ” -switzr1

“ A nostalgic set of mine...definitely an ugly set, but damn flashback central... ” -SaveDaKid

“ The pants numbers were left over from their previous set. An odd addition, as it would have looked better without the numbers. ” -jlaz10

Set: 1999 Futera Platinum Newcastle United Greatest (Rate)

Card: #NNO Andrew McCombie

“ Love the "stash"! Not huge into the "soccer/football", but I'd like to have this one! Love the info on the back...46 years with the club...wow! ” -bkklaos

“ I still can't tell what sport this card is from? My guess is soccer but a very poor layout. ” -carthage44

“ Nice card. ” -captkirk42

“ World Championship of mimes ? prisoner in silent film ? ” -uncaian

“ Check out that mustache. Maybe someday I'll go full handlebar with mine :) ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Greatest Mustache? Maybe... maybe. ” -jackal726

Set: 2014 Choice Norfolk Tides (Rate)

Card: #2 Heath Bell

“ I wish the Norfolk was still the Mets' triple-A hub. They've bounced from New Orleans to Las Vegas since then, and neither seems to fit. This is a pretty sweet card, by the way. As far as minor league designs go, this is one of the better concepts I've seen. ” -mkaz80

“ Very nice minor league card. Recently, Choice and Grandstand have really added value to minor league sets. ” -vrooomed

“ One of those relief pitchers who lost his effectiveness really fast. He had been one of the NL's best closers. Then he was in The minors. Now he's retired. ” -switzr1

“ What a downfall for this guy. Just a few years ago he was an elite closer and now is playing for the Norfolk Tides in Triple-A trying to hang on to his MLB career. ” -carthage44

“ Fun looking Minor League card. Hey that guy actually made the bigs. Amazing. ” -captkirk42

“ The T looks like an L. ” -Billy Kingsley

Set: 1994 Upper Deck (Rate)

Card: #442 Kent Mercker

“ Mid-90s. Ugh. What's with the skinny B/W photo? ” -vrooomed

“ EVERYTHING a baseball card should not be. ” -engine614

“ Awful front...and YIKES, I just saw the back. Never knew why UD was in love with putting all the text sideways, front and back. ” -NJDevils

“ I kind of like the idea for this set but the distorted black & white image ruins it for me. Another example of how the innovations of the 90s era turned them more into trash than treasure. That and all the gold leaf lettering ” -captkirk42

“ 1994 was the high point of my collecting career. I was 11 years old and baseball was my favorite sport! These cards were GREAT! ” -carthage44

“ Kent & Mini Mercker performing in the synchronized pitching competition. Last year a crucial mistake by Mini Mercker cost the team 8 points as they missed the podium by a half a point. ” -SaveDaKid

Set: 2011 Topps (Rate)

Card: #294 Luke Scott

“ I like it. Good design, large photo, text and stats...what more could you ask for? ” -Billy Kingsley

“ 2011 Topps isn't a bad looking set. I don't have many, but I like the few I have. I think the backs really look nice. ” -switzr1

“ I like everything about the 2011 Topps design. ” -vrooomed

“ Nice looking back to basics sort of design ” -captkirk42

“ These sets had some cool short print cards. ” -carthage44

“ Excellent back. Nice large, readable number. ” -NJdevils

“ I love in game action photos, especially hitters swinging at visable pitches. That's the game right there! ” -jackal726

“ Even though I grew up with the O's wearing actual birds on their caps, I can't look at this uniform without thinking cartoon birds. ” -jlaz10
