Set: 1990 Score (Rate)

Card: #668 Tom Goodwin

“ One trick pony who parlayed that one trick (speed) into a 14 year career. ” -Young Kilo

“ The "90 Score" bit in the corner is sort of foolish looking, especially when coupled with the "1st Round Pick" thing, but I don't think this is too terrible of a design. I wish it would have "DODGERS" somewhere in big letters, though, like in '67/'69. ” -revnorb

Set: 2002-03 Fleer Box Score (Rate)

Card: #52 Antawn Jamison

“ I loved this set when it was new, but now I am just indifferent on it. I did complete it though. Jamison never found much success, even though he was a very good player in his prime. Unfortunately for him most of the time he was the only really great player on whatever team he was on, and when he wasn't, he was traded away quickly. He was still in the League last year, at the start of the year, before being traded at the trade deadline and waived. It seems unlikely he will find a new contract as his output has significantly dropped off from his prime. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ It would be nice if they picked white or gray for the front, and white or black for the back. At least they were trying a NEW design, and not something from the past. ” -vrooomed

“ Blah! ” -NJdevils

“ Thank god the Warriors went back to their classic blue and gold color scheme. The uniform shown here was absolutely horrendous. ” -jlaz10

“ It is a basketball card. I don't get too excited about them. Yes, it is a great picture, but I just can't be in love with basketball cards. ” -yokonashiwa

Set: 1988-89 O-Pee-Chee Stickers (Rate)

Card: #257 Mike Foligno

“ So, if 257 is Mike Foligno, who is #125? ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Never liked any of the sticker cards. ” -carthage44

“ Does it get any worse? ” -SSG Temple

“ I liked this set for the action shots & trivia,but the rookie subset was ugly. ” -uncaian

“ Two great sweaters that their respective teams need to go back to. ” -jlaz10

“ Looks like a barcode with a picture pasted over the top of it. ” -Id8jlb8666

“ Wow! One of my scans! Ugly one, though. I think it was printed off-center. ” -DanD

Set: 1991 Impel Marvel Universe (Rate)

Card: #94 Silver Surfer vs. Galactus

“ It's funny, I've never really been a Marvel fan, I grew up a DC fan, but I still have a bunch of Marvel cards in my collection...yet none from this set, despite having a complete set of the year before and then multiple cards from the years after it. I don't know how I missed this one. (Marvel's movies are much, much better though) ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Galactus sure can throw a heater! ” -flcardtrader

“ This set is what got me interested in comics after I traded a bunch of baseball dupes for a box of these. ” -jackal726

“ What is it with these cards? ” -jlaz10

“ No contest here. ” -DaClyde

“ 1991 - the year they made a card for just about ANYTHING. See example to the left. ” -vrooomed

“ One day I should buy this set. I love comic books. ” -DanD

Set: 2011 Topps Triple Threads - Flashback Relics (Rate)

Card: #TTFR-16 Ryne Sandberg

“ SWEET CARD! Always liked the Game Used Bat cards. I am a White Sox fan but I have always been a big fan of Sandberg. ” -carthage44

“ Very cool card, but they should have gone with a capitol E...looks like Ryno instead of Ryne on the card front. I notice there are two different pieces of wood based on the grain as well. Probably three, separated by the stars. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ The picture on the front is from later in his career, while on the back is from the 80s on the road. ” -jlaz10

“ I like the design of these memorabilia nickname cards. ” -suomibear8

Set: 2007-08 Upper Deck Victory - EA Sports Face-Off (Rate)

Card: #FO6 Dion Phaneuf

“ Not too bad of a design. I wonder if this was an insert or a promo to the game? I don't know enough about Hockey cards to know. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Dion love or hate him,you got to admit the boy can hit & hit hard.Not a bad card set,kind of blah. ” -uncaian

“ Can we get any more logos on the front. Back is weak as well. ” -NJdevils

“ It's odd to think that this uniform isn't that old but seems like an antique because it's pre-EDGE. ” -jlaz10

“ Not a bad design, but all those company logos at the bottom make it look like a European soccer jersey. ” -revnorb

“ Ugh. Video game tie-in sports cards... ” -Howintensive

Set: 1996 Bowman (Rate)

Card: #293 Jason Kendall

“ Since I didn't comment on the prior card, I must say that I really like the front of this. Only improvement would be the name. Kind of gets lost in the photo. ” -NJdevils

“ Coincidence is funny - the day this is offered to write up is the same day another 1996 Bowman card was RCOTD! Not a bad card, but still has too many 90's styles to make it a "good" card. ” -vrooomed

“ Looks like a techie version of those wood-paneled Topps cards from 1962, minus the funky charm. ” -revnorb

“ That is some very wide pants striping. ” -jlaz10

Set: 2002 Press Pass Eclipse (Rate)

Card: #7 Rusty Wallace

“ Why would I pay to own a Miller Lite ad? Might as well go back to collecting beer cans. V3 ” -Vvvergeer

“ First year of Eclipse. Not great designs any year but at least they actually gave us stats. They can't figure out how to do that anymore. Rusty was the 1989 Champion, and currently is a broadcaster for ESPN. He retired in 2005. I was a big fan of Rusty as a driver but not as a broadcaster. He was the most successful the year I discovered the sport but failed to win the championship because he lacked consistency. I just noticed that they didn't censor the Winston Cup logo on his uniform either...I have this complete set but never noticed that before! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Other than the little extraneous boxes all over, I like how it's about the driver. Interesting on the stats, I never would have thought those would be the popular stats for drivers. ” -vrooomed

“ We created light beer. We created you. ” -jlaz10

“ This is what happens when web page designers try to make sports cards. ” -revnorb

Set: 2001 Fleer Tradition (Rate)

Card: #302 Antonio Alfonseca

“ Nice throwback design. This was not used in Fleer's basketball issues. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I like any card that consciously tries to not look modern, because I have great disinterest in modern-looking cards. That said, as with most Fleer products, there isn't much to get excited about here. I'm not nuts about horizontal cards, I don't really get the whole two-photo thing, and what's the point of using a stock Photoshop filter effect on the action shot? I do kind of like the back, with the little cartoon. High six! ” -revnorb

“ I liked this design a lot better when it was called Topps Big, and I hated Topps Big. ” -Id8jlb8666

“ Looks like a half rate senior photo for a high schooler. ” -Howintensive

“ If there is a word that I would least associate with the Marlins circa 2001 it would be "tradition". ” -UNC_Samurai

“ The Marlins looked good for a time with their original colors. But hey, nothing lasts forever. ” -jlaz10

“ Does he follow the C.C. Sabbathia plan for pitchers? I wonder if he has a World Series ring for the 1997 year? If he does, he has more than I ever will have. As for the card, looks nice, but not so sure I like the staring off into the distance look. Of course if he was staring right at you it might be creepy. So, meh. ” -yokonashiwa

Set: 1981 TCMA (Rate)

Card: #38 Jerry Lucas

“ Jerry wears short shorts! ” -carthage44

“ TCMA: The Copy Machine's All-stars ” -UNC_Samurai

“ How come we call them "Broders", but we never called them "TCMAs"? Weren't TCMA cards the "original Broders"? I ownly own 1 TCMA card (baseball) because it was given to me. I would never buy this stuff. ” -vrooomed

“ They did a bad job of covering up the team name on the jersey. You can still easily read Royals. ” -jlaz10

“ This is a somewhat obscure set. Beckett does not recognize it's existence. I got it from a dealer in Boston in 2004. It includes some of the early players who played in the era before cards were common. The production quality is not really all that high, unfortunately. I don't know if TCMA did any other basketball sets, but if they did, they would rank very high on my wantlist. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Shorty shorts! ” -suomibear8
