Set: 1987 ProCards (Rate)

Card: #268 Dave Veres

“ Nice no-frills minor league card of a guy who made it to the majors. I like it. ” -switzr1

“ Ahh, the old levitating ball trick. Many magicians need wires to achieve this, not David. Otherwise, a nice minor league card. ” -Kaline6

“ ... Plain back which was the industry standard before the 90's overhaul. However the 80's really expanded collecting by the inclusion of the minor league players. ” -jefferies9

“ The back is the epitome of plain. The front is better though. ” -DarkSide830

“ Holy Cow!!!! That man can levitate a baseball!! I actually like the card. Simple with everything you need. Position, team, and name all clearly visible. ” -RoyalChief

“ Nice MiLB card! ” -vrooomed

“ Nice Random 1980s Minor League Card. ” -captkirk42

Set: 1995 Topps The Empire Strikes Back Widevision (Rate)

Card: #90 Ext. Bespin's Cloud City - Landing Platform - Millennium Falcon

“ Empire Strikes Back spoiler alert! They walk around many corners! ” -switzr1

“ I have no idea what this is since I have never seen these movies. ” -carthage44

“ Nice front pic, but the back is sort of unusual. Can't wait to see the new movie! ” -DarkSide830

“ ... Fun movie cards for collectors of any generation. ” -jefferies9

“ As much as I love Star Wars cards, I never cared for Widevision based on the fact I couldn't find pages for them. Still nice looking regardless. ” -Joshua825

“ Epic! ” -RoyalChief

“ Not a fan of the "Widevision" cards. No matter the subject. Nice card other than that. ” -captkirk42

Set: 1995 Bowman (Rate)

Card: #255 Duane Singleton

“ This card is the prime suspect in bad card design. ” -RoyalChief

“ I'm sorry, but I can't find anything I like about this card. ” -C2Cigars

“ Looks like he is being attack by a light monster from Star Trek or something.Not a fan of this set. ” -uncaian

“ ... creative front to the card but the back is lacking. Having an image on the reverse side of the card adds personality to cards but overall a nice design. ” -jefferies9

“ What is this, Beavis? ” -NJdevils

“ In hindsight, maybe I shouldn't have eaten that funny-looking mushroom before designing a trading card... ” -dilemma19

“ Crazy front, meh back. Only the pic appeals to me. ” -DarkSide830

“ Very good scan for a foil card. ” -carthage44

“ This one might look better in-hand, but sets like this don't scan well, so it's hard to judge. I never like this Brewers logo though. Maybe because the one before it was so good. Glad it didn't last too long. ” -switzr1

“ I'm guessing this card looks pretty awesome in person. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I have nothing good to say about this Prospect card. ” -captkirk42

“ That looks like it could really hurt the eyes if you looked at it long enough.... ” -Joshua825

“ Always love for former Tigers. Except Shane Halter. No love for Shane Halter. ” -wax_house

Set: 1985-86 O-Pee-Chee (Rate)

Card: #208 Rich Sutter

“ The force is strong in this one... ” -switzr1

“ I liked these. Still do! ” -vrooomed

“ This was the best picture? Really? Get your stick out of the picture! ” -Howintensive

“ Topps, O-Pee-Chee...all good. Looks like Rich wants to kick some... ” -Kaline6

“ Is that Adam Sandler? ” -RoyalChief

“ ... Aside from the stick that is blurred in the image, not a bad 80's image. ” -jefferies9

“ I miss the true cardboard cards. Yeah their corners dinged easily but they just had that smell of goodness! ” -carthage44

“ loved it when the sutter bro's all played on w/ them. like the card but looks like he's holding a light saber. ” -tonym

“ simple design, interesting that no brand is on front ” -mzentko

“ Might be better to use a light sabre than a stick. ” -NJDevils

“ Any relation to HOF'er Bruce? ” -ToppsBawlyn87

“ Clean and simple. See what can be done when the company logo isn't cluttering up the front of the card? ” -dilemma19

“ My reaction exactly, Mr. Sutter, my reaction exactly. ” -lxnlxn

“ Cool design...one I've never seen before. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Kinda plain front, but better back. Nice pic as well. ” -DarkSide830

Set: 2000-01 Upper Deck MVP - Third Stars (Rate)

Card: #15 Sergei Samsonov

“ Upper Deck and its famous flood the market with tons of UD products. Boring issue yet again. ” -jefferies9

“ Nice simple design. OK overall. If I were to complain about something it is the large MVP "banner" across the bottom is not needed nor is the weird lines that make it look like some kind of 1970s take on what futuristic computer fonts would look like. ” -captkirk42

“ Don Cherry would say.. Beauty, but as a Habs fan I can't approve of Boston. Don't care for the edges that look like barcodes ” -mbarlow092

“ Not a bad card. Didn't need such a huge MVP though, takes away from a good photo. ” -NJdevils

“ Not a bad design considering the era. ” -carthage44

Set: 2002 Upper Deck 40-Man (Rate)

Card: #972 Lance Davis

“ ... Boring card with same photo on the back... and over 900 cards is way too many! ” -jefferies9

“ A valiant effort Upper Deck, but the world does not need more sets populated mostly by players no one knows or will ever know. Let Bowman take care of that angle. Generally nice design though. The company logo doesn't need to take up so much space, but it is otherwise original and interesting but not over the top. ” -dilemma19

“ The transparent name is not necessary. ” -carthage44

“ Another nice back to basics card from after the junk years. ” -captkirk42

“ I like the design, and would not mind a new try at a similar concept with today's players...although I don't think there would be enough demand to do it every year ” -mzentko

“ Not familiar with this card but I like cards with good logo placements. However I am not a fan of the early-mid 2000's obsession in baseball with adding black to uniforms. Royals had a phase during this time as well. ” -RoyalChief

Set: 1995 Score (Rate)

Card: #113 Eddie Williams

“ ... A pretty well designed card given the boring layouts Score was known for from their inception. ” -jefferies9

“ Score was always a cheaper alternative for collectors and gave a solid return. ” -carthage44

“ Didn't we do this set a few months back on Card of the Day? I like the overall design but not the color choices for the border. The back info looks good. ” -captkirk42

Set: 2002 SAGE (Rate)

Card: #26 Ashley Lelie

“ Yes, they need more cards with players in their college uniforms. The college fan base is much larger than the NFL fan base. ” -carthage44

“ Not a huge fan of college cards. Looks more like a "Find the hidden Nike swoosh" game card. ” -Kaline6

“ A perfect example of why I HATE SAGE. Who is this guy? Drafted by a pro team? I had to Google and found the wikipedia page for him. I he did have a short NFL career of 6 years, drafted by the Broncos. Played for a few other teams. ” -captkirk42

Set: 2003-04 Ultra (Rate)

Card: #184 Luke Ridnour

“ Ok, this could be a basketball player or it might be one of the eunuchs from the film Caligula. I don't know. Oh, I guess the back explains it. It sure doesn't look like a basketball player. ” -Kaline6

“ Nice design, only major complaint is (of course everyone should know by now what I'll say) is the dang foil/leaf printing for the player name. ” -captkirk42

“ ... I think Luke Ridnour is looking for the rest of the design to this extremely boring card. ” -jefferies9

“ ...and in the category of "most forgettable trading card design of all time", 2003-04 Fleer Ultra Basketball ” -dilemma19

“ When did the Sonics switch over to togas? Must be hard not trip running down the court. ” -NJDevils

“ Even in 2003 they were blanking jerseys? ” -wax_house

“ A great college player that had a solid NBA career. ” -carthage44

“ At first glance I thought this was a track and field card. ” -switzr1

Set: 1988 San Diego Padres Smokey (Rate)

Card: #NNO Marvell Wynne

“ Nice looking card. I also collect post cards, so this would fit two collections for me. His son Marvell Jr. plays for Colorado in Major League Soccer. ” -switzr1

“ The Cardinals and Padres were among the teams who did promotions with US Forestry Service in the 80s and early 90s. The result was nice sets like this. Also, remember- his name is Smokey Bear, not Smokey THE Bear. As a commercial used to say, we don't say Easter THE Bunny, do we? ” -Dave Sosidka

“ ... Postcards and oddball items like this make collecting fun when you are trying to put together a complete collection of your favorite player. Nice and clean images used on these postcards. ” -jefferies9

“ I don't really like larger cards like this from a storage perspective, but photo looks good ” -mzentko

“ Not bad. ” -wax_house

“ Nice card, but smokey should stick to preventing forest fires ” -mbarlow092

“ Never saw these. Pretty neat. ” -NJDevils

“ Sweet postcard! ” -carthage44

“ Nice looking post card. ” -captkirk42
