Set: 2011-12 Upper Deck Victory (Rate)

Card: #9 Dustin Byfuglien

“ Bad card design. Terrible sweater. ” -switzr1

“ I'm the only person that misses the Atlanta Thrashers. ” -wax_house

“ Very nice card design. Front simple like vintage but has a certain modern style. They really shouldn't put the jersey number by the Victory logo makes it look like the card number. Back design obviously more modern but nicely done. ” -captkirk42

“ I like the simple graphics on the tag line and the placement of the logo but the HUGE victory in the backround is offensive. ” -SFC Temple

“ I miss the Thrashers being in Atlanta, but I doubt the Thrashers miss being here. ” -jackal726

“ He was a big part of the Blackhawks Championship in 2010. ” -carthage44

“ Isn't this a gold medallion parallel? ” -switzr1

“ Like the design a little except for the background. ” -captkirk42

“ Copper background not working. ” -carthage44

“ I like the design overall, but that background is pretty odd.... ” -Joshua825

Set: 1998 Topps (Rate)

Card: #332 Curt Schilling

“ Fun fact: In several parts of Europe, a Schilling is a monetary unit not unlike the dollar here in the USA. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I like this set even without a logo or position. ” -NJdevils

“ Not all that bad for 1990s junk. Although it often confuses me because in later years this is what the Gold parallel of a base card looks like yet this was the base base. ” -captkirk42

“ Would be in the Hall of Fame by now if he wasn't a PED user. ” -carthage44

“ Is that a bloody sock, nope just killer stirrups... ” -SaveDaKid

Set: 1992 Oakland Athletics Baseball Co. A's Dream Team (Rate)

Card: #14 Dennis Eckersley

“ I'm guessing this is actually a team issued card. Nice and simple design. ” -captkirk42

“ The Oakland Athletics had their own card company? I guess the more surprising thing was who didn't have a card company in the 90's! ” -carthage44

“ I love oddball sets, but I get the feeling this one is unlicensed. I hope I'm wrong, because this is a great looking card. ” -switzr1

“ That looks like a fun set ” -jackal726

“ Eck looked great in Oakland green and gold, but not as good as in the Sox unis. ” -jlaz10

Set: 2008 Inkworks Supernatural Connections (Rate)

Card: #24 Family Connection: Separation

“ I never watched this show, but that looks like a foil card...if so, that is an excellent scan. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Not a bad looking card.Great T.V.series,time for it to move on though. ” -uncaian

“ I assume Supernatural Connections is a movie I've never heard of. Shouldn't the name of the card be Dean Winchester? I'm sure my collection will never feel incomplete without this card. ” -switzr1

“ Do sets like this really have much of a demand? ” -koloth42

“ huh? ” -wax_house

“ I have no idea what this is. ” -carthage44

“ Not much to say about this one. During its first season I watched one maybe two episodes of Supernatural. It was OK and I sort of wanted to continue with it, but put it off. ” -captkirk42

“ Never heard of these cards or the show (movie?)...kids would have been one and three years of age respectively about this time and that explains why! ” -bkklaos

Set: 1983 O-Pee-Chee (Rate)

Card: #67 U.L. Washington

“ UL actually stands for UL. That's his actual name ” -Young Kilo

“ The purple border seems out of place, but otherwise a nice card. OPC too, can't beat that. ” -jupiterhill

“ Here come the O-Pee-Chee comments! If my memory serves me right (which isn't always the case these days), we called him U.L. "Toothpick" Washington, as every time we saw him when they came to play the M's in the Kingdome (i.e. "Gloom Dome") he had a toothpick in his mouth! ” -bkklaos

“ HAHA, O-Pee-Chee again! Will in ever end? Is Canada taking over the site? ” -carthage44

“ Toothpick man. Love OPC. Thought Topps did a 20-year homage (kinda similar to the 1963s). ” -vrooomed

“ Ah the smell of early 1980s O-Pee-Chee. :) ” -captkirk42

“ These Royals unis were the perfect use of pullover & sansabelt technology. ” -jlaz10

“ U.L. doesn't stand for anything. Just like A.C. Green. Love 80s Topps! ” -wax_house

Set: 1955 Topps (Rate)

Card: #192 Jim Delsing

“ I like this front design. Career stats on the back would make it near perfect. :) Although, having fielding stats is a definite plus. ” -vrooomed

“ Ahhhh, wonderful! A real vintage card. Not some reprint, retro, heritage, archive knock-off. ” -C2Cigars

“ Probably will never own it, but love it! Nice condition and well centered too! ” -bkklaos

“ Breathtaking!!! ” -carthage44

“ And look at that, the day my comment lamenting fire truck cards is posted, the 'Write One' is for some classic baseball. Just awesome. ” -wax_house

“ I actually like the back of the card better. The front has a lot against it- a fake background (not a real photo), a fake signature, a horizontal layout, and I'm not even sure if that is a drawing or a picture on there...especially on the left it looks like a drawing. But on the other hand...it's 1955! Vintage is ALWAYS good, regardless of the sport. My oldest parent was only 9 years old when this set came out. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Classic ” -jackal726

“ Yes!! My favorite baseball set of all time. Oh, to have been a kid in 1955... ” -cckeith

“ I like the sideways design and background solid color. Overall nice card design. ” -Joshua825

“ I'm not always a big fan of the horizontal card layout, but the solid color background ties the two-image view together a lot more nicely than its usually done. ” -revnorb

“ ANY vintage is good vintage. ” -engine614

“ The evolution of the flat brim hat. ” -EdTheStatMan

Set: 2009 Rittenhouse Spider-Man Archives (Rate)

Card: #67 Avengers

“ I don't like Spider Man. Is the guy on top floating? The back mentions Capt. America, but I don't see him. Clearly I'm not a comic book guy... ” -switzr1

“ Not so special card at all, meh ” -hawksforever

“ Love it! Got to get me some of these! ” -bkklaos

“ Marvel has some questionable art lately. This is not too bad but some of their comics...horrible. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Avengers is an overrated movie. ” -carthage44

“ Cool Comic related card. I really wish the whole craze for comic book related movies and trading cards and a ton of other stuff had happened in the 1970s and '80s when I was really into all that stuff. Now I'm just sort of mildly interested in them not all gung-ho into them. ” -captkirk42

“ Dell'Otto has one of the more distinctive styles (without becoming stylized) as far as Marvel artists go. Love the covers, less of a fan of the interiors. ” -jackal726

“ Nice art work,great looking card. ” -uncaian

“ The Skrull invasion was a great idea since they could mimic the heroes and turn them against each other! ” -Joshua825

Set: 1985 Donruss Highlights (Rate)

Card: #49 Wade Boggs

“ Not the most likeable guy, but the boy could hit! Always great for the fantasy team, back when you had to use the USA Today for stats to crank out the standings! ” -bkklaos

“ No matter what era, the Sox unis still look good. ” -jlaz10

“ Even though this was the beginning of the Junk years I still like the 1980s sets. ” -captkirk42

“ So so good!!! ” -carthage44

“ Didn't like the idea for these sets back when they first came out and this was the first year of the "Highlights" set. I was just a teen, but I remember them being too "expensive" for my taste. I think the 55 card set (56 with the checklist) was priced about the same as the Topps Traded and Fleer Update sets (which were more than double the size at 132). Now, for player collectors, these are awesome sets to pull singles from. 17 of the 55 cards feature HOFers! ” -vrooomed

“ Somewhat inaccurate set of records, as Willie Keeler, Lloyd Waner and Jesse Burkett all had higher single-season singles totals than Willie Wilson when Boggs hit his 187. Wilson's 184 wasn't even a modern ML record as Waner's 198 was in 1927. Ichiro surpassed Boggs mark 3 times in his career and now hold the undisputed record with 225 singles in a season (2004). Either Donruss had bad information, or they were really trying to pad the set. ” -DaClyde

Set: 2011 Upper Deck College Football Legends (Rate)

Card: #73 Billy Sims

“ "Design? Just type something on the back of the card and we're done" ” -volbox

“ Another more modern UD failure. Chrome thing at bottom ugly and can't read "Billy Sims" looks like it says "Buly Sims". I don't like college cards either. I might have to not comment when the card of the day is a college card. ” -captkirk42

“ Is his name in that dark stripe somewhere? I have to assume this card looks a lot better in person. ” -switzr1

“ It would be sorta funny if he were running the wrong way ” -lxnlxn
