Set: 2006-07 Upper Deck MVP (Rate)

Card: #252 Martin Rucinsky

“ I think this design would be better suited for an insert set. Not enough space on the front devoted to the picture. Way too much border on both sides. ” -switzr1

“ The MVP product was a nice affordable product. Usually, their designs were pretty good. This one should be less design, and more photo on the front. The back, with the same design is ok. ” -vrooomed

“ I like this design except I've never liked the "MVP" "sets". Come on not every player is an MVP. Kind of silly to make a 100 card base set filled with current MVPs. An insert set or subset of 30 cards (1 card per team) is fine, but a whole set? Yeah I know UD has done the MVP for years and years but I never liked the concept. ” -captkirk42

“ Not a fan of the font on the back, or the fake signature, but otherwise a decent card. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Cool card from Upper Deck. Could use a bit more of an action card but good details on the back. ” -Mihome316

“ Still playing in the Czech league at age 43! Had a nice NHL career, 600+ points. ” -wax_house

“ Facsimile auto or was this card hand signed? ” -carthage44

Set: 1991 Topps Toxic Crusaders (Rate)

Card: #21 An Unscheduled Flight

“ Toxie's tip made me laugh. Otherwise, I'm not sure what to think of this card. ” -switzr1

“ Toxi! I had forgotten that they made a trading card set of the Toxic Avenger er Crusaders cartoon show. ” -captkirk42

“ Fill water pistols with ink? Toxie is a real jerk. ” -mkaz80

“ Knock off to the Toxic Avenger? I like the tip on back which states to save water by filling water guns with ink. I am sure parents would love that! ” -carthage44

Set: 2012 Topps - Prolific Playmakers Autographs (Rate)

Card: #PPA-JW Jerel Worthy

“ Really dislike the computerized uniforms they put on these cards. ” -carthage44

“ Well, this would be a Worthy addition to anyone's collection. (Sorry, I couldn't resist) ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Yeah, right! Two seasons, 15 tackles...a real playmaker. A lot of photoshop work on this card. ” -C2Cigars

“ Sticker! Boo. ” -vrooomed

“ Jerel Worthy was an absolute monster at Michigan State. I had a buddy in the dorms at MSU who was also a Packers fan, and when we heard that Jerel was drafted by Green Bay, we flipped out. ” -Howintensive

“ Nice card. I just wish they would do away with the on-sticker stuff and just stick with on-card autographs. Also serial numbering autograph cards should be standard. Just noticed that Worthy was wearing 00. I didn't think any team did that anymore. ” -captkirk42

Set: 1997-98 Donruss Limited (Rate)

Card: #44 Patrick Roy / Jocelyn Thibault

“ I've always had mixed feelings about front/back 2-player cards like this. If I sort by player, it looks really bad in a binder because an odd player is present. If I sort by set, it looks really good in a binder because there are no traditional card backs to look at. ” -switzr1

“ If there has to be two or multiple players in same card, I prefer them to be on same side. Because you can never have absolutely equal sides. There is always that front side guy and that back side guy. ” -Duke

“ Don't really like this set much. I prefer each player getting their own card. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Two for one, nice! ” -carthage44

“ UGH. Don't like much of anything about this one. Chrome for one which rarely scans well. Not a fan of either team or player. At least the two players are goalies so that is the common bond to be on the same card called "counterparts". Often times they will pair two players with no connections at all. ” -captkirk42

“ The ability to toggle between front and back makes this card even cooler. ” -wax_house

“ Have several of these. Not a fan of two players front and back, but the cards were shiny and cool. ” -vrooomed

“ Last week, 32 years after buying my first pack of baseball cards, I finally got a bunch of hockey cards -stickers actually- in a flea market. The only vaguely familiar name was Patrick Roy. ” -volbox

Set: 1994 SkyBox Star Trek The Final Frontier Cinema Collection (Rate)

Card: #08 Campfire Philosophy

“ I'm preparing to toast a marshmellon. ” -koloth42

“ I would be happy if they never did any more of these oversize cards...a fad we did not need in the first place in my opinion. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Guess I'm just a dinosaur, but I loved (and still do love) the old (albeit "cheesy" compared to nowadays) episodes! ” -bkklaos

“ Marshmellons, anyone? ” -DaClyde

“ Somewhere, someone just realized that their collection of cards depicting a campfire scene is incomplete ” -jackal726

“ Yum Roasting Marshmallons on an ancient camp fire. ” -captkirk42

“ Never saw this movie. After reading the back of this card, I doubt I ever will. ” -switzr1

Set: 1993-94 Pinnacle Canadian (Rate)

Card: #334 Neal Broten

“ Classic set. Interesting, but sad and gloomy design. These are very very hard to keep in good condition. Black cardboard doesn't stay black for a long time, at least from corners and edges. I believe that graded ones are going to be pretty expensive in the future. ” -Duke

“ I like this set. Pinnacle did a pretty good job, most of the time.Broten was a strong center man & a mainstay on the Stars offense,finally got the cup with New Jersey. ” -uncaian

“ I like the simple Pinnacle but the 1992-93 and this 1993-94 set are WAY too similar looking. I often misplace cards from these years in the wrong set. ” -captkirk42

“ They should go back to being called the North Stars. ” -carthage44

“ Probably the most successful player to come out of the 1980 USA Olympic team. ” -Howintensive

Set: 1992 Racing Champions - Racing Heroes (Rate)

Card: #121 Dan Gurney

“ Dan Gurney could race and win in anything. He didn't do NASCAR very much, mostly sticking to the track in Riverside California, where he won for 5 consecutive years. Even though this is a NASCAR issue the photo was clearly taken in an Indy car. Most of the cards had a facsimile autograph on the back, but apparently RC could not get Gurney, which is surprising, because he is still alive to this day. The diecast replica this card came with is of his 1969 Mercury. I remember well the day I got it- summer of 1993 in Peekskill NY. I chose it because it was car #121 and I had never seen a three digit car before, little did I know this was one of the hardest cars to find in the Legends series RC did. I have been looking for a sealed copy to hang on my wall for several years, I can't find one; they are usually not available but when one does come up it sells for more than I wish to pay for a duplicate. Getting this one though is such a great memory for me. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Thought this was just one of those promo ad cards you find at displays in stores identifying some kind of product. Either that or part of the packaging for a car model or die-cast car. ” -captkirk42

“ The English teacher in me screams out, "It's NOT a possessive. It should be spelled 'Heroes.'" ” -Dave Sosidka

“ Billy, was this inserted with a die cast car? ” -switzr1

“ Personally, I like this card...thanks for another unusual card Billy! ” -bkklaos

Set: 2003 Ultra (Rate)

Card: #144 Darin Erstad

“ I kind of like this design. And Erstad was a terrific hitter. Good card. ” -switzr1

“ Could this be the worst Ultra design of them all? I think it might be. That said, they picked a really cool photo for this card! ” -mkaz80

“ I really liked this design when new- it was used in 2002-03 for the NBA- but the Ultra sets that came immediately after it I liked so much more, which made me not appreciate this one as much as I once did, although I always loved Ultra and there's not a single Ultra design I dislike. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Not a HR photo. More like a pop out to short left field. ” -NJDevils

“ Besides his 2000 season, he never quite lived up to his #1 overall pick status. Still had a very solid career. ” -carthage44

“ Now this is a nice card from the early 2000s. I like it except for the font of the player's jersey number which is also too large. ” -captkirk42

“ The Angels just never looked good in these vests. Great idea, but poor execution. ” -jlaz10

“ I actually like this set, the only thing I'd change: I'd prefer a little clearer card numbers. ” -vrooomed

Set: 1999 Topps - Record Numbers (Rate)

Card: #RN4 Ken Griffey Jr.

“ I like this card. Looks like fireworks, which are one of my favorite things in the world, along with baseball. And they have an actual statistic to justify his inclusion in this set, a rarity in that era. (See that "Future Champions" card a couple days ago) ” -switzr1

“ Too bad Griffey couldn't stay healthy. If he had, it would have been interesting to see where he would have ended up for career HRs. ” -duaned99

“ Should have known this was a late 1990s card. I like the basic part of the design but the fireworks background is too much for me. Back is OK. The front should have something about what sort of record it was. ” -captkirk42

“ Great insert concept. A cool design, and it's based on the sport's history. A win in my book! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ For an insert set, this is ok. If this had been a base set, no way. And at first glance, I thought it was a Pacific product. ” -vrooomed

“ If injuries didn't slow him down in Cincinnati, he very well could have been the career HR leader! One of the prettiest swings EVER! ” -carthage44

“ Record Numbers? Is Topps talking about the record number of overprinted cards? ” -NJdevils

“ The M's haven't looked as good as their blue and gold days, but I'm glad they brought it back for an alternate. ” -jlaz10

“ My parents moved to the Seattle area when I was six months old...consider myself a Seattle native...Jr. just one of many reasons I have fond memories of area I will likely never live again! ” -bkklaos

Set: 2009 Wheels Main Event - Playing Cards Blue (Rate)

Card: #10H Brian Vickers

“ My all time least favorite NASCAR set. The entire thing was built around poker. A waste of cardboard in my opinion, made doubly so by the fact that they dropped Wheels American Thunder for it. You could build an entire deck of playing cards if you so chose- the blue was retail, the red back version hobby. Vickers has battled blood clots and is out of the car again while he tries to get them fixed. For the first time a replacement has been hired that was not labeled as temporary so it may be the end of his career. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Nice job Billy...another hit! I'm off to Seattle in a week and will be playing in my first Texas Hold'em Tourney...don't imagine I'll be dealt one of these cards though! ” -bkklaos

“ Are we playing Blackjack now? Gimme an Ace! ” -koloth42

“ I really dislike Nascar but these are cool cards. ” -carthage44

“ Hmm when I see cards like this by themselves I wonder were they part of a 52 card "deck" or where they for a set to look like playing cards and there could be any number of cards in the set/deck? Oh I should of just said "Who is the Joker who came up with the idea for this card?" ” -captkirk42
