Random Card of the Day

Monday, March 9, 2015

Set: 2004 Bowman Chrome (Rate)

Card: #158 Jay Sborz

“ Is this the right place for this card? It's a refractor but shows in the base set. Bad-looking card either way. Hokey signature is hard to see. And is a big body really a skill? ” -switzr1

“ The back for this scan is for the refractor. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Oops - refractor scan in the base set. ” -vrooomed

“ These look as if they should say "In Memoriam". Maybe this is true for Jay's short ML career....2/3 IP and that's all she wrote. ” -NJDevils

“ The back says it's a refractor. Is that correct or was this card uploaded incorrectly? ” -carthage44

“ Anti-scanning technology at its best, a chrome card with a black border and foil lettering. ” -DaClyde

“ Ugggg ! ” -uncaian

“ A pretty boring Bowman design, but still better than any of their recent releases. ” -mkaz80

Set: 2004 Upper Deck Etchings (Rate)

Card: #45 Derek Jeter

“ Typical 2000s Upper Deck...not a favorite era of mine. With that said, I've seen worse. I suspect the card scanned is slightly off center- the border being noticeably larger on the left side and all. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Nice looking card. Reminds me of a beer label. ” -Id8jlb8666

“ Some photo selections just confuse me. Do they throw darts to decide which ones make the card? ” -SFC Temple

“ Their were way too many Upper Deck sets during the early and mid 2000's. ” -carthage44

“ I am a putz. I thought the player's name was "Deck Etchings". "My name is Etchings, Deck Etchings". ” -NJdevils

“ Nice looking card. I don't have any of these. ” -switzr1

Set: 2007-08 Topps Premier League Match Attax (Rate)

Card: #192 Louis Saha

“ Not much of a soccer fan and I don't really have many in my collection. This is a cool looking card though. ” -yokonashiwa

“ I have a friend that doesn't collect cards, but is a huge Manchester United fan...I know he'd give this a big thumbs up! ” -bkklaos

“ Is this official soccer week or something? ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Another one of these? BOOOOOO! ” -carthage44

“ Gimme a break. Is it "Ground Hog's Day"? ” -NJDevils

“ Didn't we just have a soccer game card yesterday? ” -koloth42

“ I've never actually taken the time to figure out how any of these card games work. I wonder if players ever take offense when they see their cards and think their ratings are too low. ” -switzr1

Set: 2008-09 Panini UEFA Champions League TCG (Rate)

Card: #132 Hatem Ben Arfa

“ Is the photo on the card back of that guy's knuckle knees a part of the card game? Because if not that's just kinda weird. ” -Id8jlb8666

“ I wasn't a fan of this card till I turned it over and BAM...there it is...the sexy knee shot. ” -SFC Temple

“ I still fail to understand how what is arguably the most popular sport in the world doesn't get many real cards, only these game pieces? If I was a fan of this sport, I would be really annoyed by that. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ With the sidebar behind the ball it kind of makes the ball look a little like it was photo-shopped in. To me he appears to be looking ahead as he runs, not at the ball. ” -armac

Set: 1994 Pinnacle Power Surge (Rate)

Card: #PS12 Carlos Baerga

“ I always thought of Baerga as a little bit underrated. Also, I have never seen this insert set before. I'm indifferent to most Pinnacle products in general. ” -Id8jlb8666

“ Whatever happened to Baerga? He was so good, but it seems like it was for so short of a period of time. This card is a decent insert. ” -vrooomed

“ He missed the beachball!! ” -volbox

“ I like it...Pinnacle was just hitting it's stride in this time period. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ He was a good one. ” -carthage44

“ I like it, my only problem is that I loose the name in that stripe, but I bet that's in the scan and not so much in the card. ” -jackal726

“ The top of this card looks like a misprint, an error card. And I don't see how Carlos missed hitting that huge ball. Maybe getting hit in the left foot by a metal triangle threw him off. ” -NJDevils

Set: 2003-04 Topps (Rate)

Card: #203 Corliss Williamson

“ Why is there a double amputee depicted in the bottom left hand corner? ” -Id8jlb8666

“ Could use some cartoons on the back. ” -NJDevils

“ Very Nice Set that year ” -Nog Dead Gerbil

“ Love this set. The color-keyed to the team borders really sets it off, as does the etched foil team logo. Unfortunately I lost several of mine to a flood earlier in February, it had been a complete set. I'll never forget when Corliss Williamson gave a post game interview while wearing a shower cap as well- I think it was during this season. People still joke about that. This set also holds the record for most reissues for the NBA. First you have the 1st Edition set, which was standalone (It's listed here as a parallel) which was the base cards, but with a foil 1st edition logo (and no inserts), then you had the Factory Set which had gold foil, updated photos (unfortunately most were digitally altered, not real photos) and 16 extra cards, and then you had the Topps Chrome release. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Pretty simple design but I like it. ” -carthage44

“ The design is really cool, like the colors too! ” -Joshua825

Set: 2002-03 Pacific Complete (Rate)

Card: #148 Andy Delmore

“ Pacific in-Complete stats on the back. More stats, less net on the back please. ” -vrooomed

“ Seems like a set geared towards kids which is a good thing. ” -carthage44

“ Not a bad set, compared to some of the stuff Pacific put out.Delmore was a pretty good defenseman played on a couple different teams. ” -uncaian

“ Nice. I like this design. ” -Duke

“ The Preds look so much better with gold as their primary color. It would be interesting, however, if they wore navy as their dark sweater and gold as their light. ” -jlaz10

“ I find the design of the back odd. Just an empty net. No player. Front is fine though. ” -switzr1

Set: 1988 Topps - Tiffany (Rate)

Card: #13 Andres Thomas

“ Nice scan...it's like you are holding the real card in your hands. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Nice parallel set .. too bad it was at the "glut" of baseball card production. Everybody was issuing sets in 1988. But .. add it to your collection anyway! ~BOB~ ” -BOBSCARDZ

“ Never quite understood why this set was ever made. ” -suomibear8

“ Never understood why they are called "Tiffany"? ” -carthage44

“ This takes me back... back to when the Braves were the only baseball on my TV and Topps were the only cards sold at the closest convenience store. ” -jackal726

“ Even though it's just O-Pee-Chee stock and a layer of shellac, I've always liked the Tiffany sets. ” -Id8jlb8666

“ Really well done back, though I don't care for nor own one "tiffany" card. ” -NJDevils

“ Nice 'rups! I'd like to see more color, though. ” -jlaz10

“ What an ugly face for an action shot. Reminds me of a B-rate movie antagonist. ” -Dixxy

“ I like the clean Tiffany cards. Can't say that I remember Thomas though. Figured with the shot of him running that he may have been a base-stealer. Nope. ” -armac

Set: 2001-02 Upper Deck Playmakers (Rate)

Card: #88 Vincent Lecavalier

“ UD Play Makers Limited (NOT Upper Deck Playmakers!) was an interesting set. I am not sure what the hockey version gave you. but the NBA set included a bobblehead in each box. A good friend is trying to get me into hockey cards- he just gave me over 2000 of them on January 31st- and Lecavalier is his favorite player. I'm trying to get him onto the Database, maybe seeing this will do the trick :) ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Vinnie is a great player,would have been nice to see him retire in Tampa.Nice card front & back. ” -uncaian

“ This was the point when Upper Deck was spitting out cards as fast as they could not caring about the design or look of the cards. ” -carthage44

“ The arrangement on the back makes him sound like a UFC fighter...And fighting out of Tampa Bay Florida, "Lighting" Lecavalier Vincent! ” -Id8jlb8666

“ From the dark days of card design ... and it shows. ” -vrooomed

“ The Lightning are a team that can wear black, since it's one of their original colors. ” -jlaz10

“ OK set. Not bad, not good. ” -Duke

Set: 2007 Upper Deck Goudey (Rate)

Card: #153 Troy Glaus

“ This set is kind of neat. It makes me wish I had still been collecting cards back in 2007. ” -cckeith

“ More ugly, unwieldy mini art cards. I appreciate Goudey's history and the originals are great. A modern company trying to appropriate that greatness, not so much. ” -Id8jlb8666

“ Pitiful card. Sorry Upper Deck, try as you might, this is not a Goudey. I think "Roy" would agree with me. ” -NJdevils

“ Another failed remake. ” -carthage44

“ I understand the appeal of the retro cards. I just don't like the number of retro style sets out there. ” -Mike67

“ Throwback style. Next... ” -vrooomed

“ Looks like he is posing in front of a middle school. Or an auto garage. ” -mkaz80

“ I wonder if this set skipped numbers like Goudey used to. Chasing a set of 44 that only had 39 cards. ” -Dixxy

“ I like the card sets that have the painting look, just like this Goudey set. But wow....that background color! ” -Joshua825

“ I like the set. I like Glaus. I don't like this Blue Jays uniform. Just never looked like the Blue Jays to me. ” -switzr1

“ Even though I love the throwback sets, these newer cards are so clean and the stock is so different, that I'm not a huge fan of this one in particular, although I do have a few of these. ” -suomibear8

“ Roy Glaus? ” -jlaz10
