Set: 1997 Press Pass VIP (Rate)

Card: #43 Butch Miller

“ 1997 was a great year in NASCAR cards. This design isn't the best though. Even by then Press Pass had stopped caring about actual stats on the back. Weird how the gold foil scanned great for the logo, but not the name. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ The "sport" subject aside, it's one hideously ugly design. I prefer a driver card that actually has a picture of the driver, not just his car. ” -C2Cigars

“ OK looking card. Never have liked the gold foil/imprinting/chrome style for names. For the familiar card company logo OK but for important things like player or team names NO NO NO. In this case his name is also hared to read because of it being against his black uniform. This is where having the name in the border or in a box is better than being gold or silver inlaid. ” -captkirk42

“ The guy's name is Butch. Must be a Nascar card. ” -carthage44

“ Not a big fan of the early VIP sets, but love the recent ones. The inserts are very cool looking, a fun challenge to complete the recent years sets! ” -Joshua825

Set: 2002 Topps Total (Rate)

Card: #274 Kevin Jordan

“ Loved the Topps Total concept. Unfortunately in my sport they only did it two seasons. I believe every player in the League- no matter which league it is- should get a card, and that's what Topps Total was all about. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Two things I never understood - the Topps Total concept and the dual numbering (set and team). ” -vrooomed

“ Topps Total. Love the concept and for some of the years they did a nice job. Almost wish they still had this. Except since they tried to have EVERY player thus the "Total" the set count is very high. ” -captkirk42

“ In typical Topps fashion they made a card for someone no longer in baseball. 2001 was his last season in baseball. This was just one of 29 Topps baseball products in 2002, and a lackadaisical one at that. I guess TOTAL is short for TOTALLY USELESS. ” -C2Cigars

“ The Phils could use a new uniform set, or at least a refreshing alternate. They've been using their current set since the mid '90s. ” -jlaz10

“ This guy looks like he is 50! ” -carthage44

Set: 2008-09 Upper Deck Ice (Rate)

Card: #158 Patric Hornqvist

“ I like the clear plastic cards. Cool! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Being from Nashville all my life, I never dreamed of a NHL team coming to town. The crowds at the game are electric too. ” -addysdaddy

“ U.G.L.Y. ” -skrezyna23

“ Horny! I typically like UD Ice's see-through effect. ” -wax_house

“ I'll pass the puck on this one. ” -captkirk42

“ The Preds look so much better as a predominantly gold team. ” -jlaz10

“ Plays on Crosby's line in Pitts.Drafted same year Crosby first,Hornqvist last.Not a big fan of this set. ” -uncaian

Set: 1987 ProCards (Rate)

Card: #803 Ricky Jordan

“ Nice and simple Minor League card. Ahhhhhh. ” -captkirk42

“ ProCards always look so amateurish. How appropriate though, an minor-league card company for the minor leagues. Ricky is one of only 116 MLB players to hit a home run in their first-at-bat. ” -C2Cigars

“ I prefer the arithmetic series. ” -wax_house

“ Back in the '80s, when minor league teams simply wore their major league affiliates' uniforms and slapped an extra line or so on the cap. ” -jlaz10

“ Wish they would have filled in some of the blank space on the back with some information about the player. ” -carthage44

Set: 2001 SP Authentic (Rate)

Card: #53 Rick Ankiel

“ I'm not sure why everybody goes nuts over SP Authentic. The cards just aren't that great. At least, being mostly white, they don't show the dust that invariably gets trapped on scanner trays. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ juuuust a bit outside... ” -volbox

“ Blinded by the white, revved up like a deuce, another runner in the night, Blinded by the white... Oh, wait. That's not how the song goes. ” -C2Cigars

“ Ankiel is a real favorite with just about any Cardinals fan. Great looking card too. Nice design and terrific photograph. ” -switzr1

“ Looks like he's figure skating instead of pitching. ” -deporcoruña

“ Good hitter. Good outfielder. Terrible pitcher. :) ” -vrooomed

“ Geez,I hope Rick doesn't twist his Ankiel doing that.Kind of a blah set. ” -uncaian

“ This guy was just a pure athlete! ” -carthage44

“ Another of these early 2000s Love/Hate sets. I started out really liking SP Authentic but they are often TOO plain, TOO bare white. Wow what a photo though. ” -captkirk42

“ Strange career. Good for him at reinventing himself as a hitter after he lost his pitching. He had a 25 HR season. ” -armac

Set: 1994 Pacific Crown Collection (Rate)

Card: #5 Sid Bream

“ "The Slide" ” -domentho

“ Sid is so fast he can field his own hits.Nice card. ” -uncaian

“ I always liked this set. The main focus is the photograph, which is how I like it. Font for name is a little hard to read. Some might not like the absence of a team name on the front, but as long as his helmet is visible, I can see the Braves logo just fine. ” -switzr1

“ Simple but solid. ” -carthage44

“ Nice looking card. Pacific is usually pretty good like this. Back lack of stats ugh. ” -captkirk42

Set: 1990-91 Pro Set (Rate)

Card: #629 Martin Hostak

“ I like the design of this set. I was given a bunch of them earlier this year. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ YES 90-91 PRO SETT This set isone of the most profesional sets ever made in hokey history. some of the best profreaders in Tradingcard historey worked at ProSet. ” -Howintensive

“ The first set I ever owned. This just looks like my childhood. ” -wax_house

“ Pro Set, the McDonald's of cards..."Billions and Billions Printed"... and it seemed an equal number of errors. A 705-card set for a 21-team league? Even after producing a card for every player on every team, that left about 200+ filler cards. I guess their business philosophy was "Quantity Over Quality". ” -C2Cigars

“ Always liked Pro Set sets even though they tend to be overly simple. ” -captkirk42

“ Ahh,Pro Sets first hockey outting,should of had a drinking game spot the error take a drink - you'd get hammered !!! Hostak was one of those players who did well everywhere but NHL. ” -uncaian

“ The Flyers used too much black in this uni set. I'm glad they went back to their original style. ” -jlaz10

Set: 1975 Topps (Rate)

Card: #165 Doug Rader

“ Great color scheme. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Somebody gave poor Doug the wrong directions to the Astrodome. ” -switzr1

“ Classic set. ” -vrooomed

“ I was 10 when these came out- I remember not being able to focus on my school work after walking into the candy store at lunch time and seeing a brand new box of 1975 Topps cellos sitting there. Yet another Topps issue that would have been better served without the facsimile autograph. ” -Dave Sosidka

“ Topps 1975 the first year starting collecting cards. One if my favorite designs. ” -goldeneye

“ One of my all time fave sets. Still need to complete it as well as it's mini parallel set. ” -captkirk42

“ One of my least favorite sets. All because of some of the uncomplementary color combos. Some of the background color combos were hideous. And sometimes that was compounded by a clashing team name color. Everything else I like; the little baseball, name font, facsimile signature, team name style, photos. ” -C2Cigars

“ One of the first baseball sets I actually tried to collect & one of my favorite sets. ” -uncaian

“ SO VERY GOOD!!! ” -carthage44

Set: 1997-98 Collector's Choice (Rate)

Card: #59 Terry Dehere

“ My least favorite of the Collector's Choice sets, for the sole reason that the number is too darn hard to read! Even in person it's miniscule. I have this same design in both NASCAR and Hockey and the numbers are larger in both...so not sure what UD was thinking when they did the NBA set. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I don't usually like the Collector's choice designs, they usually all look alike and are generally boring. This one is a nice variation from the usual boring theme. ” -captkirk42

“ My first thought...AWKWARD. I like the card design, it doesn't overpower the subject...the player. ” -C2Cigars

“ This was the first Collectors Choice design that I didn't like. I always found the font used for the name hard to read. ” -switzr1

“ I normally wouldn't comment on a basketball card, but had to make mention of a former player from my alma mater, Seton Hall University in South Orange, NJ- Terry Dehere. Dehere was from the last great run of Seton Hall teams under coach PJ Carlesimo, including the one that was robbed of a national title by Michigan in 1989. A New Jersey schoolboy standout, he played for Bob Hurley, Sr. at St. Anthony's in Jersey City and remains in the area to this day. ” -Dave Sosidka

“ 1996-97 Clippers were a playoff team. Love me some 90s Clippers! ” -wax_house

“ That's an awkward looking rebound! ” -cckeith

“ Nice action shot! ” -carthage44

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
