Set: 1993 Ultra (Rate)

Card: #160 Gary DiSarcina

“ Curbstomp! ” -Id8jlb8666

“ I really liked this design theme for Ultra- they used the same theme the first two years for the NBA. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Ultra tried their best to be the "Gem" of the early 90's sports cards. ” -carthage44

“ That looks like it's going to end painfully ! Merry Christmas everybody ! ” -uncaian

“ Nice action shot. If I squint it looks like he's about to be taken out by a comet. ” -jackal726

“ I felt sorry for Gary at first, I mean a flaming baseball is headed straight to his back, but then I saw he's giving a curb stomp to the other team, so maybe he deserves it. ” -jupiterhill

“ "Use me as a stepping stone" said by Mickey Tettleton. ” -JimStaub

“ The Angels late '80s-early '90s look is underrated. Despite it's obvious pullover undertones, you can never go wrong with anything red and navy. ” -jlaz10

“ Boot to the head! ” -cynicalbuddha

“ Just a horrible back. One photo on the front is plenty. ” -NJdevils

“ Doing push-ups with someone standing on your neck seems like something Greg Jennings would do in a deodorant commercial. ” -revnorb

“ Nice photography, decent layout (for the few stats). ” -vrooomed

Set: 1991 Upper Deck - Team Logo Holograms (Rate)

Card: #NNO Milwaukee Brewers

“ I love hologram cards. To me they are the best insert concept ever. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Loved putting these stickers on my sports card binders. ” -carthage44

“ Inserts. Easy to find inserts. Just about the coolest things back in the day. ” -vrooomed

“ It looks like an X-ray of a Brewers logo... ” -suomibear8


“ Maybe down the road, we can start using animated GIFs for hologram and "Magic Motion" type cards. ” -DaClyde

“ Interesting how the ball seems to stay in one place, while the glove can move. ” -jlaz10

Set: 1990 Topps - Glossy All-Stars (Rate)

Card: #18 Kirby Puckett

“ Hey, the camera's over here! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Is he remembered more for his Hall of Fame baseball career or his run ins with the law? ” -carthage44

“ I loved the glossy All Star sets, even though the design never seemed to change from year to year. These were fun because they were inserted one per rack pack, and you could see who you were going to get. If you were going for a set, you wouldn't get any doubles, unless you bought the pack for one of the visible base cards. You could see five of those too. Of course a rack pack cost more than a dollar so I didn't buy them very often. Also, Kirby is looking a little slim here. ” -switzr1

“ One of the greats of his day, I actually bought tickets when the Twins came to Cleveland to see him play. Old Cleveland Stadium, Kirby was a joy to watch. ” -Gunny

“ Simply one of the best ever to play the game. And clutch, too. ” -vrooomed

“ The Twins M-script cap was nice, but shouldn't have ever been full-time. They should have kept the TC for at least home. ” -jlaz10

Set: 1997 Donruss Limited (Rate)

Card: #138 Vladimir Guerrero / Jim Edmonds

“ VLAD! I miss that guy. Definitely All-Name Team. ” -Howintensive

“ Vlad kind of dropped off the face of the earth real fast. Edmonds is a legit Cardinals legend despite playing only 8 of his 18 years there. I liked the concept of a 2-sided base set at the time. I suppose I still do. Something different; I gotta admire effort. ” -switzr1

“ Not a bad design. It looks like the front may be chrome? Also, where did the bat go on the back of the card? I see the nob, but no bat. It's probably straight back behind him, but it just looks funny. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I miss the Expos existing. I don't really miss those Angels' unis. ” -duaned99

“ This was an interesting concept, which I know they used in hockey as well. The cards were nice, and only 1 real parallel. ” -vrooomed

“ Interesting two-in-one concept. Horrible Angels uni, by the way. ” -jlaz10

“ He looks like he is about to get rolled over by a giant boulder like in that scene from "Raiders of the Lost Ark." ” -revnorb

“ Another case of chrome/foil not scanning nearly as nice as it looks in real life. I scanned this card 7 or 8 times and this was the best I could get on the front. ” -jackal726

“ Not a fan of the dual player, front and back cards. ” -carthage44

Set: 1987 ProCards (Rate)

Card: #2219 Shawn Barton

“ Anyone have this complete set of 2,812 total cards? ” -carthage44

“ Love minor league cards. I want them all. Can't have them all. :( ” -vrooomed

“ Anyone looking for a good proctologist might want to check out the left field wall. ” -haogaole

“ Nothing fancy but I like it. ” -koloth42

“ Interesting how a button-down jersey with no stripes is paired with a sansabelt '80s style pants. ” -jlaz10

Set: 1999 Stadium Club (Rate)

Card: #152 Josh McKinley

“ Photos on Stadium Club cards always looked different than other sets. I've never been able to put my finger on why that is, and I didn't even pay attention to that fact until I was a little older. But it is noticeable. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I like it. ” -vrooomed

“ Love short print rookies like this one. ” -carthage44

“ Another Expos' card. I don't remember Josh McKinley though. ” -JimStaub

Set: 2002 Decipher Lord of the Rings CCG: The Two Towers (Rate)

Card: #4C248 Southron Bowman

“ I comprehend the words, I know all their meanings, but I still have no idea what this card is saying. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ The good news is once the COTD engine has successfully picked EVERY TCG or CCG Card I have added to the database, It will stop. The bad news is that we still have about 7000 more to go. ” -Dixxy

“ I don't remember this Bowman set. ” -switzr1

Set: 1888 Yum Yum Tobacco (N403) (Rate)

Card: #NNO Pat Deasley

“ One word to describe this card.... AMAZING!!! ” -carthage44

“ 1888...wow! This has to be the oldest card to come up as Card of the Day. It was issued 96 years before I was born...and less than 10 years after the hobby really began. (Generally recognized as beginning in 1879, at least in the US, from what I've gathered). I can't tell if this is a real photo or a very well done painting. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I did not realize pluralizing with an apostrophe-s dated back to the time of Robin Hood. ” -revnorb

“ Is this an actual N403? Amazing condition for a card that old. I'm wondering if the edges are cropped out... ” -suomibear8

“ Slick. Very sharp card. ” -koloth42

“ I still don't have any cards in my collection that are older than 1951. THIS card is great. Looks like it's in great shape too. Pardon me while I'm a little jealous for a few minutes here. ” -vrooomed

“ Should be a Member of the "Mustache Team" ? ” -BOBSCARDZ

“ I like how they wrote the team name over his jersey to make it look sown on. ” -jlaz10

“ Yum Yum! I wonder how long it takes to tie his jersey. ” -switzr1

Set: 1998 Pacific (Rate)

Card: #271 Chris Naeole

“ This is about the time when offensive lineman cards became extinct. Very sad. ” -carthage44

“ Well, it's certainly not all gunked up with bells and whistles, but it's not particularly memorable, either. I suppose if I was a kid and collected these I would probably still think they're kind of neat. ” -revnorb

“ The Saints tried to overcome their hard-to-see gold numbers with a thick black outline, but predominantly black numbers work better. ” -jlaz10

“ Foil name on a foil background. Can't even see it at all. Brilliant design. The photography is nice though. ” -switzr1

Set: 1994 Traks (Rate)

Card: #68 Loy Allen Jr.

“ Loy Allen Jr. shocked the NASCAR world when he won the pole for the Daytona 500 as a rookie in 1994, the first person ever to do that, in the 45th running of NASCAR's most important race. Unfortunately for him, it would turn out to be his career highlight. 1994 would in fact turn out to be the only full season he would ever attempt, and he was out of the sport totally by 1998. Three other drivers- including in both 2013 and 2014- have since won the pole as a Rookie. None of the four, to date, have won a Cup race, and one of them won't as he's retired (1997 Mike Skinner) 1994 Traks was a decent set, but there were so many great sets in 1994 that it really doesn't stand out. 1994 is my favorite year for NASCAR cards. Series 1 had gold foil, while series 2 had silver. This card is from series 1 (#1-100) which is much more common than series 2. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ It's a racing card. Yawn. Sorry I know there are those who like them, but I am not one of them. ” -yokonashiwa

“ Mom, this man is scaring me... ” -revnorb
