Set: 1989 Score (Rate)

Card: #454 Tim Birtsas

“ The pullover jerseys with sansabelt pants was never a good look. Liking the stirrups though. When I was a kid I liked this set because of how colorful it is and because of the large photo on the card back. ” -duaned99

“ Good design on this card. Name font looks like something that would have been used about a decade later, but that's not a bad thing. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ There is nothing that will ruin a pitcher's card as much as a photo taken at the most awkward moment possible in his throwing motion. It looks like he's got his hand in the pocket and he's changing direction in mid-delivery. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ Biggest claim to fame? Getting traded for Rickey Henderson. Obviously not straight up. But people don't need to know details ” -Young Kilo

“ Not bad for an early Score design. Nice action photo with a decent border design that doesn't detract from the player. ” -koloth42

“ Score always used a lot of colors in their sets, just like 88 and 90. ” -suomibear8

“ Oh 1989 score, how I wished I would have never see you again. ” -carthage44

“ Although the Score brand only existed for a few years, Score designs were a lot better than today's crap. ” -jlaz10

Set: 1977 Topps Star Wars (Rate)

Card: #169 Meeting at the Death Star!

“ Classic. ” -sascards67

“ When Star Wars came out in 1977, it was hugely popular...much more than anyone anticipated. Topps released the standard set, but it was so popular they released 4 more (!) making it the only 5-series set I know of...all in the same year, no less. Some of the images were even pretty much the same. The yellow series is Series 3, of which I only have 2 cards, (so far!) and this is not one of them. My first memory of anything is of watching Star Wars, and for nearly 25 years I believed that my Star Wars cards were my first, only finding out last year that they were the second set in my collection. Although the movies came out before I was born, my brother bought the cards new and gave me his duplicates in 1988, at the same time that I got my first cards, the Bigfoot monster truck cards, thus kicking off a lifetime in the hobby. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I remember having these cards as a kid, but I don't know what I did with them. Love the the movies there all some of my favorates. ” -deporcoruña

“ I used to have a big yellow metal tonka dumptruck that I used to hold all my star wars cards when I was a kid. Lets just say they would be in better shape if I had used a card box. ” -bplay24

“ Great to see one of these cards hit the random cards of the day. I collected these when I was growing up and still have all my cards. I think a pack of the red set was the first trading cards I ever had and my grandmother bought them for me. Such wonderful memories. ” -koloth42

“ This piece of card can't even deny it's from the 70s. The graphics, the colors are so typical. I've never been a StarWars fan, but this is a nice collectible. ” -xv3thekid

“ I find your lack of faith...disturbing. ” -cynicalbuddha

“ Doesn't compare with the Davy Crockett or Zorro cards of the 1950s. Very dull ” -NJDevils

“ "ok, whose turn was it to bring the beer and chips?" ” -tonym

“ Even though it's Star Wars and there's no Topps markings, I automatically knew it was Topps because of the border. ” -jlaz10

“ Choke him, Vader!! ” -DanD

“ Sorry I'm late, I forgot to change my clock, we built this giant Death Star & I can't get a clock that automatically adjusts itself... ” -SaveDaKid

“ Cool! Star Wars geeks unite! (I'm one of them!) ” -Hollywood42

“ "Fleer will keep them in line. Fleer, and this battlestation." ” -UNC_Samurai

Set: 1996 Donruss (Rate)

Card: #222 Albert Belle

“ I'm guessing that square is mirror foil and looks a lot better in person... ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Should be in the HOF ” -Young Kilo

“ Hmm nice image with a simple design but what's with the box at the bottom? Did Albert get put in the Donruss penalty box? ” -koloth42

“ Just below Barry Bonds on the list of reprehensible major leaguers.... ” -PlayerPCCollector

“ One of the best hitters I've seen. Too bad he was too conflictive. ” -deporcoruña

“ Don't trip on the box!!!. Too late. ” -dobbie

“ I really liked how all of the vital card information (Team, brand, year, position, etc.) was put into a small box on the bottom. ” -jlaz10

“ JOEY!!! Running from the cork police... ” -SaveDaKid

Set: 1996 Mother's Cookies San Diego Padres (Rate)

Card: #17 Trevor Hoffman

“ I'd never heard of this brand before I joined the Database, but who doesn't love cookies? ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Another one of these, PASS! ” -carthage44

“ Looks like someone enjoyed mother's cookies... ” -SaveDaKid

“ Why MLB would authorize a brand like this is beyond me. ” -jlaz10

“ Next up on the list of sets that never should have been: Mother's Cookies ” -Hollywood42

“ My favorite Padres uniform set. Good color scheme. It looked sharper than what they are currently wearing. ” -duaned99

“ How come so many Mother's Cookies cards get "randomly" picked for this? ” -sascards67

Set: 1997 Wheels Race Sharks (Rate)

Card: #2 Jeff Gordon

“ Yes, another NASCAR card! After a long drought with none, three in less than a month! Unfortunatly it's one of the many zany mid-late 90s Wheels sets that had nothing to do with anything NASCAR. This one is shark themed, they also did a medieval knight theme, a bear/wolf theme, and a dinosaur theme...and I think I'm even forgetting one or two. Might explain why they are no longer in buisness. Jeff is one of only 4 people with over 1000 of his cards scanned and posted into the database. The others are all baseball. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ The racer every redneck loves to hate. ” -uncaian

“ I get it, Race Sharks! ” -jlaz10

“ Again, I still don't get NASCAR ” -Hollywood42

“ Awful. ” -wamk

“ Ironic, considering most race fans in 1997 thought Gordon was quite the chum. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ This design is just wrong. ” -koloth42

Set: 1978 Montreal Expos Postcards (Rate)

Card: #13 Wayne Garrett

“ Bring the Expos back. Loved that logo! ” -carthage44

“ I never really considered post cards as trading cards in the past, but I suppose if they are a numbered series they would count. I also collect post cards, but most of my collection (under 30 cards, I believe) I purchased myself on vacations. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ The late, lamented Montreal Expos did a great run of color postcards from 1977-2004. The first grouping was from 1977-1979 and featured the player's name and position in French and English. I was 14 when I receieved my first one back in 1979- from Gary Carter- personalized to me. Another interesting fact: most, if not all of the photos from this era were taken by Denis Brodeur, whose son you might know for being the future Hall of Fame goalie of the New Jersey Devils, Martin Brodeur. ” -PlayerPCCollector

“ A bit on the plain side but what do you expect form a 1978 circa postcard collectable? ” -koloth42

“ It's odd looking at an Expos jersey without full-sleeve and side racing stripes. ” -jlaz10

“ Were the Expos required by law to argue with the umpire in both English and French? ” -UNC_Samurai

“ Oh how I miss my Expos ” -uncaian

Set: 1981 Coca-Cola Philadelphia Phillies (Rate)

Card: #6 Bake McBride

“ I have a love/hate thing with local team issues. On one hand, they are incredibly cool to have...but on the other, they can be frustrating to hunt down, especially if you live nowhere near the team. (although that's probably not much an issue anymore, with the internet....but the concept seems to have trailed off in the days of the net) ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Shake n Bake McBride! Good times back then! don't care for the coke symbol though. ” -tonym

“ Who's intrested in seeing some guy's backside? ” -deporcoruña

“ Sounds like a great name for a McDonald's employee. ” -suomibear8

“ Bake McBride at 400°F for 30 minutes or until he scores in the 25th inning. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ Does advertisement like this really pay off? ” -jlaz10

“ I liked 1981 Topps. This set, not as much, but it's still nice ” -Hollywood42

“ AHAHAHAHAHAHH Wake & Bake McBride...who names there child bake??? ” -SaveDaKid

“ Great name Bake. Nice design except for the hat. ” -goldeneye

“ Damn. Looks like the people at Topps were "baked" as well ” -Young Kilo

“ A new item on the McDonald's menu? ” -DanD

“ Logic test: Coca-Cola is headquartered in Atlanta. Atlanta has the Braves. There is no Coke set for the Braves. = Illogical ” -sascards67

Set: 1994 Collector's Choice - Silver Signature (Rate)

Card: #597 Erik Hanson

“ to all of the nascar haters out their just go to a race. when they fire up all those car at once that's it you will be hook ” -james mashburn

“ As aa child I thought it was cool that you got a chance to see every players signature in the series. ” -carthage44

“ I can't wait for stirrups to make a comeback. I also like the old timey pictures on the collectors choice. ” -SSG Temple

“ When I think "Collector's Choice", I think Erik Hanson. What was the other choice, Chris Bosio? ” -UNC_Samurai

“ I always enjoy facsimile signatures as a the hockey ones for MVP. ” -suomibear8

“ I like the subtle pinstripes on the border of the card. CC was a decent effort at an entry-level set for kids to collect, across all sports. Not a fan of the pitcher graphic in the lower right corner, too distracting. ” -wamk

“ In my mind, Topps was alwasy the Collector's Choice. ” -jlaz10

“ That is the worst throwing motion I have ever seen ” -Hollywood42

Set: 2011 Topps WWE Champions (Rate)

Card: #54 Sheamus Becomes King of the Ring

“ A better design than 95% of the baseball cards that came out in the 90's, even though I am no fan of "wrestling". ” -wamk

“ Wow, Roy Halladay has let himself go. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ This card scares me ” -Hollywood42

“ Wrestling was hugely popular with my friends when I was in school, but I just couldn't get into it. I watched it a few times just to see what made it so popular, but it just wasn't for me. I am glad to see some more variety in card of the day, though...there's a whole lot more to the world of trading cards than just baseball and football. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I'm guessing he's Irish. ” -jlaz10

Set: 2003 Inkworks X-Files Season 9 (Rate)

Card: #63 (Credits) 9x20

“ Good to see a non-sports card chosen as Card of the Day, even though it's from a property I have no interest in. Non-sports cards date back to the 1870s and cover pretty much any possible topic. TV shows have been a favorite topic for the past 30 years or so. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Yikes! I have no problem with entertainment cards. I use to collect them myself and have full sets of Star Wars and thinks like Raiders of the Lost Ark. My beef with this is that it is a lousy image for a card. ” -koloth42

“ So... ” -jlaz10

“ LOVE this design ” -thechestnut
