Set: 1990 ProCards AAA (Rate)

Card: #523 Bien Figueroa

“ Pass! ” -carthage44

“ This was not ProCards finest moment with this design. ” -sascards67

“ This is a man clearly happy with his life! Good for him! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Might as well hand the camera to me for these minor league sets. You want bad photos, I'm your guy. ” -NJDevils

“ Interesting how the cutout of the picture extends onto the namebar. ” -jlaz10

“ Minor League card are cool. You never know who will end up with a Hall of Fame numbers ” -goldeneye

“ Ah, ProCards. Yuck ” -Hollywood42

“ Another of ProCards boring minor league designs. This marked a departure from ProSet issuing basically the same cards in packs and team sets. Figueroa would see a brief 12 game stint in St. Louis in 1992 and spend the rest of his career in the minors, Mexico and Taiwan. ” -DaClyde

Set: 1998 Pacific Aurora (Rate)

Card: #41 Justin Thompson

“ The halo effect reminds me of a Spanish icon to the Virgin Mary. ” -sascards67

“ Odd card design. Are they implying that the player depicted has a heavenly aura? Or just standing in front of the sun? (disregarding that the location of the shadow on his face clearly indicates the sun is pretty much shining down on him, not behind him) It would have been more interesting if there were different colors coming out of the glow, as when I think of Aurora I think of the Aurora Borealis...or a 1990s Oldmsobile. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I never saw these before and they are not a bad looking card. ” -NJDevils

“ There's a reason Pacific doesn't make much any more. This one isn't BAD, but check out some of their other stuff... ” -Hollywood42

“ Kind of reminds me of a funeral program ” -titanup74

“ And no longer did Pacific make cards. ” -jlaz10

Set: 1994 Coca-Cola Monsters of the Gridiron (Rate)

Card: #21 Renaldo Turnbull (Raging)

“ Wacky 90s promos....those were the days! As bizarre as this one and some others are, that's still my all time favorite era for cards. The Monsters of the Gridiron logo is a pretty blatant knockoff of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles logo, too. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ What!!!, Is this !?!?!? ” -deporcoruña

“ 2 and a half words: What the....? ” -Hollywood42

“ No. ” -jlaz10

“ Wow, you mean people don't collect these? I am shocked. ” -NJDevils

“ why? ” -titanup74

“ Mutant League Football anyone? ” -DanD

Set: 2006-07 Upper Deck - Game Jersey (Rate)

Card: #J-BB Brad Boyes

“ This is the first time I've seen a relic pop up as Card of the Day...UD could have included some foil here...not even the UD logo? Really? You'd think they would want to make the relics look as good as possible, considering that is what most people care the most about these days. The card design itself isn't bad, just could use some more foil. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ One of the first 'jersey' cards I pulled, I remember saying to myself how wonderful this kind of card is to get. I still enjoy pulling these kinds of cards out of packs. ” -Gunny

“ The B's should bring back the old 'Spoked B' logo. The current one has serifs and doesn't work. ” -jlaz10

“ I LOVE THE GAME JERSEYS !!!! ” -uncaian

“ NHL? What is that? ” -suomibear8

“ Always cool when you get a card like this of a piece of a jersey that the player has worn. ” -carthage44

Set: 2008 Topps - Topps Stars (Rate)

Card: #TS22 Grady Sizemore

“ I remember when Sizemore was the next big thing. What could have been for him if it wasn't for so many injuries. ” -carthage44

“ Without having seen this card in person, it looks like it's foilboard, and probably looks awesome in hand. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ His time has passed. Injuries robbed him. Will only be a shell if he ever returns ” -Young Kilo

“ Kinda like this insert set. There aren't 20 different parallels for it ” -Hollywood42

“ Maybe they could put a little more of the picture on it? ” -jlaz10

“ We get it. It's called Stars. ” -titanup74

“ I like the stars. I hate the insert name repeated over and over again. ” -sascards67

Set: 1993 Stadium Club - Super Teams (Rate)

Card: #NNO23 Cleveland Gary

“ I have been opening a bunch of boxes of early 90's football cards of late and I am LOVING IT! ” -carthage44

“ This man has an unusual name. I've never heard of anyone with the last name of Gary before right this moment. I did drive through Gary Indiana once, however, and...Indiana borders Ohio, home of Cleveland! Not quite 6 degrees of seperation, more like 3 but eh, it's 4:48 in the morning and it's the best I can come up with at this time! :) ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I always got bad teams with no chance of making the playoffs on these super teams cards, but one year I got the 49ers and I won a bunch of stuff, including a complete Super Bowl winners set. ” -sascards67

“ What's going on with the letters? I can barely even read Cleveland. ” -jlaz10

“ My eyesight just got worse.... ” -suomibear8

Set: 1960 Topps (Rate)

Card: #125 Dick Ellsworth

“ A great subset design that stands out from the base design in 1960. ” -sascards67

“ Interesting card fact about Ellsworth. Ellsworth's 1966 Topps card #447 had the picture of Ken Hubbs. Not the first time that the wrong picture was printed on a card, but Ken Hubbs had died two years prior to the card being printed. ” -carthage44

“ The stripe layout reminds me of a vintage airline company logo. Not any one in particular, but it looks like something you'd see on the side of a plane. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ The Sport Magazine Rookie Star design of '60 Topps was amazing! I have a couple of this design in Topps Heritage. ” -jlaz10

“ Great cards in a great set. I remember collecting these. They were so different from the regular cards in the set, it was exciting to open a pack and get one of these. Even a Dick Ellsworth ” -NJDevils

Set: 1993-94 Topps (Rate)

Card: #205 Hakeem Olajuwon

“ Future playoff MVP? Wait, i'm confused. ” -carthage44

“ Seeing the card predictions were always somewhat fun, because most of them were so absurd. This one, however, actually came a way. The NBA does not hand out Playoff MVP awards, only Finals MVP awards. A minor point of semantics. Hakeem was named Finals MVP in the very season this card was issued, as he led the Rockets to the first of two consecutive NBA titles. He was also NBA MVP the same season. Despite the fact that this is one of the more common sets, and I've had the complete subset since at least 1997, have seen the cards hundreds of times at least, I just noticed looking at the picture that the background design is a bracket. It's funny how sometimes you overlook things like that! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Hey, they predicted something right! ” -Hollywood42

“ Like the concept of the playoff bracket in the background, but it comes up short. ” -wamk

“ He did it!! ” -DanD

Set: 2012 Topps Archives (Rate)

Card: #179 Michael Bourn

“ Easily the best set of 2012. ” -sascards67

“ I always liked this card design, but why did Topps make pink the feature color so often? ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Just another sign on how Topps has just plain ran out of ideas ” -Young Kilo

“ Topps should put out a complete set using archive card designs. ” -Goldeneye

“ A little too similar to Topps Heritage for my likings, but nonetheless, I love it. If Topps continues to make Topps Heritage at the rate its progressing right now, this set (1984 Topps) will be covered in 2035. ” -jlaz10

“ All the good looking designs have been taken, so why not recycle? ” -DanD

“ A solid set. I enjoy the throwbacks. ” -carthage44

“ Topps successfully captured 2 AWESOME facial expressions...You would think they would take more than 1 picture and take the best ones... ” -Hollywood42

Set: 1999 Upper Deck Victory (Rate)

Card: #258 Rey Ordonez

“ I somewhat enjoyed the Victory sets because of the simple design. ” -carthage44

“ This is from 1999? Looks like Victory hasn't changed in awhile ” -Hollywood42

“ A simple but modern design. I like it! ” -jlaz10

“ I enjoyed the Victory design this year in each of the sports. ” -EdTheStatMan
