Set: 1962 Post Cereal (Rate)

Card: #76 Raymond Berry

“ All vintage is cool. I would have preferred text on the back, instead of nothing, but you can't win them all I suppose. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Post Cereal has been a forerunner in producing Food Issue sets for BB and FB for years. Nothing gaudy about their designs...however, small ODDBALL sets are fun to collect. ~BOB~ ” -BOBSCARDZ

“ I'd eat cereal if it still included cards. ” -jackal726

“ Love this set. ” -SFC Temple

“ Beautiful Colts jersey. And full stripes! ” -jlaz10

Set: 1993 Maxx Premier Plus (Rate)

Card: #164 Vic Kangas

“ This set was the first chrome style set in NASCAR history. there would be two more Premier Plus sets, and Press Pass issued two chrome sets, in the late 2000s. I am 4 cards away from completing this set, despite doing a box. I have to admit I know almost nothing about Vic Kangas, just what I've read on the card backs. That was a big part of what was missing in NASCAR cards in later years, the crew chiefs and team owners. There is more to the sport than just the drivers. With Press Pass out of business now, I guess it's a moot point. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Few know that this card holds the world record for most "93"s on it. ” -NJdevils

“ Nice shirt, LOL! ” -carthage44

“ Nice sweater... Wait, that's only hockey... ” -jlaz10

Set: 1993 Playoff Contenders (Rate)

Card: #116 Vincent Brisby

“ These cards would always stick together if you had them in a box together and then the paint would rip off the cards. Not good! ” -carthage44

“ Happier on the front. ” -vrooomed

“ Maybe this is an omen that NE are going to win this year!? I have a buddy that is a Pats fan and he'd sure be happy about that. Me, I'm a Hawks fan, but GB can win me some cash...thus, Go Pack! ” -bkklaos

“ Where's Brisby? ” -NJdevils

“ The Patriots early days of the Flying Elvis were forgettable. If you're gonna have royal blue and red, stick to Pat Patriot. ” -jlaz10

Set: 1994-95 Ultra (Rate)

Card: #286 Tim Taylor

“ I will refrain from making "more power" jokes, but I like the card design. Not a surprise, always liked Ultra issues. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Wasn't he on Home Improvement? ” -BOBSCARDZ

“ Tim Taylor of Detroit? I wonder if he knows his way around power tools. ” -jupiterhill

“ Mid-90's Fleer Ultra always gave you large action photos like this one. ” -carthage44

“ I Don't think so Tim argh argh roo roo!!!! ” -AL BORLIN

“ Not enough pictures on the back. ” -NJdevils

“ The Wings white sweater is so much better than this, despite maintaining most design elements. ” -jlaz10

“ Should be a gold stripe across the bottom. Stripe is missing from several of the scans in this set. Unless there was some variation of these cards that I don't remember. ” -switzr1

Set: 2001 Upper Deck Vintage (Rate)

Card: #253 David Allen

“ Great card. Before I read the title & spotted the Vintage logo, I thought it was an old card. Of course, considering it's now 2015, some might argue that it's still an old card (lol) ” -Billy Kingsley

“ These cards have a very nice vintage texture. ” -carthage44

“ Does anyone know if Topps gave Upper Deck license to use the '71 design or did they just blatantly rip it off? ” -Id8jlb8666

“ Really nice card for lower priced. Beats a lot of their higher priced efforts. ” -NJdevils

“ A decent economy card. I appreciate the "old" cardboard feel and having both stats and a narrative on the back. ” -SFC Temple

“ Very interesting how his name is taped on the front of his helmet. Also, adidas in the NFL? ” -jlaz10

“ Looks like a poorly done rip-off of the 1971 Topps all-pro cards. Why is the name so small on top? Why doesn't "49ers" fill the bottom better? They didn't even have computers to use to set type in 1971, and they still did a better job of type sizing than this. ” -revnorb

“ Love the colors on the front! The back? Ehh.... ” -Joshua825

“ Ah who could forget the Upper Deck ripoff of a Topps Design..Vintage! ” -cynicalbuddha

Set: 1990-91 7th Inning Sketch WHL (Rate)

Card: #343 Victoria Cougars

“ Victoria apparently doesn't have a last name. ” -Id8jlb8666

“ If I didn't know better,I would say this guys name is Victoria,like Prince,Beyonce,Classified or whatever.I do like the Sketch sets though. ” -uncaian

“ I know most cards but I have never heard of 7th inning sketch. Simple design but effective. ” -carthage44

“ They need a lesson in typesetting, but otherwise, cool set. ” -vrooomed

“ So many things wrong!!! Don't see many hockey games go seven innings. Designer had no clue to as to what checkslist is. Different is not always good. ” -NJdevils

“ Nice sweater. The Cougars, now in Prince George, should go back to this color scheme. ” -jlaz10

Set: 1992 Fleer/ProCards (Rate)

Card: #728 Jose Munoz

“ Minor league cards always try so hard. ” -carthage44

“ Interesting design. It kind of looks like something you would get printed out of a mall photo booth, and I'm not sure if that's a good thing or not. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Not bad - the front border graphics remind me of what the local photographer does for my son's little league photos, but otherwise pretty nice. I do like how the theme is used on the reverse as well. ” -vrooomed

Set: 1969 Topps (Rate)

Card: #208a Donn Clendenon

“ They shouldn't have cropped so close, it looks silly with his name and team box superimposed over part of his head. Otherwise, a fine card. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Another ERR/VAR card! How sweet! ... the best part of card collecting is searching for the errors & variations. U gotta try it? ~BOB~ ” -BOBSCARDZ

“ I always loved the fun cartoon drawings on the back with the tidbits of info about the players! ” -bkklaos

“ Simple be effective design. Absolutely love the back of the card. ” -carthage44

“ Great back of card. Nice absence of company name on front, I think. ” -NJDevils

“ Interesting card. Clendenon was drafted from the Pittsburgh by the Expos in the 1968 espansion draft. He was then traded to the Astros, but refused to report and a few months later was then traded to the Mets. So he is pictured here with Houston (with whom he never played), in an airbrushed Pirates uniform while he was actually a member of the Expos. ” -DaClyde

“ Another Curt Flood type deal - traded to the Astros, but didn't report. Not a bad design for the card, but not my favorite of the 1960s. Other than the horizontal 1960 set (not a fan of horizontal cards), it's down there. Still better than 95% of the designs since 1985! ” -vrooomed

“ One of the simplest front card design I've seen. Yet still very affective. I gotta say that I'm not a big pink salmon fan though, for the back. ” -JimStaub

“ Obviously still in a Pirates uniform due to the black and gold piping, but why wouldn't you just leave the P on the helmet? It looks odd blank. ” -jlaz10

Set: 2014 SAGE HIT - Autographs Gold (Rate)

Card: #A114 Robert Herron

“ Can we petition the card companies to stop with the stickered autographs? ” -vrooomed

“ This is why modern autograph inserts need to be scaled WAY back. Scale the back to the point where players might actually sign their name and not just their initials. Soon, they'll just be signing with an 'X'. ” -DaClyde

“ I would like these cards more if they had an NCAA license and they could print the cards with the college teams logos and uniforms. ” -carthage44

“ I know the autograph/memorabilia inserts have spun out of control, but I still love the thrill of pulling one from a pack! ” -bkklaos

“ What uni is that, high school? ” -jlaz10

Set: 1994 Topps Archives 1954 (Rate)

Card: #251 Roberto Clemente

“ I never knew Clemente was a Dodger. Looks like a Montreal Royals hat. Was taken by the Pirates in the 1954 Rule 5 draft. ” -Mike67

“ One of the all-time greats! ” -cckeith

“ The Great One, one of the best moves the Buccos ever made was snatching him in the rookie draft when the Dodgers were trying to "hide" him as a bench player in Montreal. ” -Gunny

“ I love TOPPS ARCHIVES, especially the 1994 [1954] set. I have both regular and gold sets. Clemente + 6 other cards, have the reverse back ERRORS, also there are "orange variations" and "orange gold" SPs. My kinda set! ~BOB~ ” -BOBSCARDZ

“ I know people rip these reprints but for most people this will the closest you can get. ” -carthage44

“ I'd rather have the 1954 version, but as this is in my budget range, it would satisfy me! ” -bkklaos

“ Great card. Imagine an outfield of Jackie Robinson in left.Duke Snyder in center and Roberto Clemente in right. Would have been amazing ” -Garygriv

“ My dad's favorite player. I remember him telling me about Roberto. When my dad played, he had the same number. ” -JimStaub

“ Is it just me, or is it kinda ridiculous they couldn't get the player photos centered properly, leaving all this empty green space on the card? How hard and obvious an adjustment would that have been? ” -revnorb

“ I didn't even know he was a Dodgers prospect. Nice cap, too. ” -jlaz10
