Set: 1988 Topps (Rate)

Card: #123 Tom Candiotti

“ Have 2 complete sets of 88 Topps and have a 5000ct monster box full of duplicates. Nothing like having some extras. ” -addysdaddy

“ Love 80s Topps stuff. ” -captkirk42

“ I like this set more now than I did in 1988. Candiotti is a card collector who owned the famous Gretzky/McNall T206 Wagner at one time. ” -switzr1

“ At first, I was going to say "My least favorite 1980s Topps design." Then I thought about it - and 1986, 1982, and 1989 popped in my head - and 1984 was too much of a repeat of 1983. So, this winds up being in the middle of the pack. Sad. Boring design, and no position on front. Oh, how I dislike that. ” -vrooomed

“ These were some of my first cards. FLASHBACK! ” -carthage44

Set: 1995 Select Certified - Mirror Gold (Rate)

Card: #81 Royce Clayton

“ Several things: Great scan! Well-marked parallel. Stats indicate this was obviously pre-Interleague play. (I miss those days.) Considering this release was in addition to other releases by the same company, I can understand the different way of reporting stats (and the fact that it only shows the one year). ” -vrooomed

“ Very poor attempt here by Pinnacle. ” -carthage44

“ Another 90s product I don't like. ” -captkirk42

Set: 2007 Topps Turkey Red (Rate)

Card: #164 Jorge Posada

“ I like this design. It looks old while still having a modern depth of field. The border looks three dimensional but I don't believe it is. Really well done effort by Topps here. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I actually really like the Turkey Red Sets.They are not overdone design wise.Write ups on the back are well done too. ” -uncaian

“ Looks like s straight up picture frame you would hang on the wall. ” -carthage44

“ The original 1911 Turkey Red T3 Cabinets are beautiful. These "retro rip-offs"...NOT!! By the way Topps, this design was used for boxing not baseball. And stop using other company's designs. ” -C2Cigars

“ why? yuck! ” -SaveDaKid

“ I like Turkey Red. Don't like horizontal or Landscape cards but it works for this one. ” -captkirk42

Set: 1991 Topps Addams Family (Rate)

Card: #41 Shocking Experiment

“ I know I saw this movie, but I have absolutely no memory of it. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ One of the better movie sets; decent graphics on front and colorful, back with awesome description. ” -SFC Temple

“ I actually like this card it's ooky,kooky & just a little spooky! ” -uncaian

“ I have an unopened box of these, but as I have never seen the movie, I won't open until I do. Gut feeling, with my love for the original series, is that I will be disappointed with the movie! ” -bkklaos

“ dadadadun *snap* *snap* dadadadun *snap* *snap* adadadadun, dadadadun, dadadadun. The Adams Family Love it. Still think Christina Ricci is hot. ” -captkirk42

Set: 2004 Topps (Rate)

Card: #342 Ben Watson

“ Front is ok but needs more color. Looks like it was designed with the purpose of making pointless color parallels. Back looks good, except I HATE the use of Blue Devils/Bulldogs in the stats instead of college names. Too many crossover nicknames for this to be useful. ” -switzr1

“ Love/Hate this early 00s design. I think it the cards were on a regular cardboard stock rather than the modern bleached thinner card stock, I would probably like it more. The design is simple but I hate the the player name font it seems to "computerized". I like the little figure off to the side sort of a tribute to the 1971 Topps Football. ” -captkirk42

“ That Pats uni is timeless, but not as good as Pat Patriot. ” -jlaz10

“ I liked Topps Mid 2000s sets. This one I especially like. ” -Colts12

“ Poor design. ” -carthage44

Set: 2008 Inkworks X-Files I Want to Believe (Rate)

Card: #25 Taking a Risk

“ LOL.... First I see todays card of the day showing a couple of ball players in what could be considered a "compromised" position and now this one! So many comments... we'll go with... "No, Sir...this IS the only place I can administer this shot." ” -SFC Temple

“ Non-Sport strikes again. X-Files this is a pretty ordinary looking card for that show. Haha. ” -captkirk42

“ SCULLY!!! ” -CluelessJoe

“ This may be the least interesting card I've ever seen. ” -switzr1

“ Keep that durn thing away from me! ” -Rod_Davis_86

“ This show was bad to put it nicely. ” -carthage44

Set: 1997-98 Futera Celtic Fans Selection - Foil (Rate)

Card: #52 Celtic 3 Dundee Utd 0

“ A card of the fans? That's a new one on me. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I'm guessing this is a chrome card? Very ugly scan. One of many reasons I am not a huge fan of Chrome. Collecting Chrome cards is like having a separate hobby. ” -captkirk42

“ this hurts my eyes ” -lxnlxn

“ If this whole set is foil cards of pictures of crowds, this set goes right behind the Bratz set in urgency for completion. ” -switzr1

“ The regular, non-foil isn't much better, horrible card. A picture of fans in the stands. I think the upside-down signs speaks volumes. ” -C2Cigars

“ So this is what Curly sees after Moe pokes him in eyes. ” -NJDevils

“ Terrible all around. ” -carthage44

“ Is this one of those Magic Eye pictures? ” -ShoTime

Set: 1998 Pacific Aurora - Pennant Fever (Rate)

Card: #2 Derek Jeter

“ I like some Pacific sets and then some like this one I don't at least not much. OH wait this was an insert set. The base set looks a bit better than this. That Mets beam seems out of place for the Yankees. Ugh the backside. If they had matched up the attention grabbing colored beams with the team colors this sub-set might have worked. ” -captkirk42

“ the blue and orange stripes bother me. it is almost like he was on the Tigers or something. ” -lxnlxn

“ Always loved the Yankees' Orange and Blue! ” -NJdevils

“ You can't go wrong with Yankees pinstripes. ” -jlaz10

“ Just watched a Seinfeld episode that he was in. ” -carthage44

Set: 1972 O-Pee-Chee CFL (Rate)

Card: #43 Willie Postler

“ No matter what the sport,I love the pre 1990's cards. ” -uncaian

“ It looks like a "Most Wanted" mugshot. ” -suomibear8

“ Awesome set. Didn't realize CFL commissioned sets that long ago. ” -wax_house

“ Cool classic OPC card! ” -carthage44

“ Plain and simple design. Maybe too plain and too simple. I like the back better than the front. Boy, were they wrong with their prediction. He played a season in 1972, 1974, and 2 games in 1975 ” -C2Cigars

“ Niiiiiiiiice ” -SFC Temple

“ Wow at first I thought this was a more modern custom job. But I looked at the title and checked the back. OPC CFL. ” -captkirk42

“ This guy looks like he could take on an entire bar in a bar fight, and win. ” -switzr1

Set: 1998 Donruss (Rate)

Card: #419 Livan Hernandez

“ Levo was just a kid back then. LOL. Actually a nice looking card design, but I'm not too thrilled about checklists like this. I know others like them better than the plain ones from the vintage days, but there is only so much you can do with a checklist. I like having them but I also like being able to know they are a checklist right off the bat. ” -captkirk42

“ Not a bad effort for the era. ” -vrooomed
