Random Card of the Day

Monday, August 8, 2016

Set: 1995 SkyBox Premium (Rate)

Card: #16 Barry Foster

“ Very interesting, not a lot of cards based on newspaper designs. I like it. I can still remember when I was getting into the NBA I learned which team name went to which city by looking at the results in my local newspaper. It was so early in my following if the sport I didn't have every team in my collection yet. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Is this a card or a newspaper article? ” -captkirk42

“ This is a pretty neat card. I like the uniqueness of it. ” -RoyalChief

“ Kinda like the newspaper look. ” -carthage44

“ Interesting idea for a card, I wish either a) the scan was bigger or b) my eyes better so I could read the "article." ” -rmpaq5

“ Rarely seen 'news headline' sports card. Crazy that this card is over 20 years old. Will newspapers even exist in another 20 years?? ” -dilemma19

“ According to this card he brought pro bowl power to Carolina. Was cut shortly thereafter. The sad short career of most NFL running backs. Never played another down after leaving the Steelers. Not my favorite design. Feel a little too high school journalism class to me. ” -Mitch

“ Cards like this seem cool at the time, because it's the first time seeing an expansion team on cards. But once they have cards with real game photos, I totally lose interest in these. ” -switzr1

“ The new expansion teams, Panthers and Jaguars, were treated with this ugly design. The rest of the set has a much better look. ” -C2Cigars

Set: 1993-94 Ultra - All-Rookies (Rate)

Card: #2 Viktor Gordiouk

“ 90s inserts at it's best. Best decade in history of the hobby in my opinion ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Good looking insert, always liked Ultra, the gloss always worried me though. ” -Doc Floyd

“ Finally, a Buffalo player comes through on the random card of the day!!!! Too bad it is one that never contributed much to the blue and gold. The card is nice a insert or subset. The background for some reason reminds me of a Canadian Maple Leaf, which is interesting given the player is not Canadian. Let' go BUFFALO!!! ” -muskie027

“ Another of the many "all-rookies" of whom I have never heard. He did have a long career in Europe. ” -NJDevils

“ Not a bad looking card at all . ” -uncaian

“ I've flip flopped on sets like this over the years. A year ago, I went through a phase where I would have given this a bad review, but today I love it. This was a fun time to collect. It was past the point where packs got expensive, but by that year I had a job and could afford them again. And the inserts were the best. ” -switzr1

“ No wall can contain Viktor Gordiouk! Viktor smash!! ” -rmpaq5

“ Poor animation in the background. ” -carthage44

“ Yep, he was a rookie. That's about all you can say about him. His entire NHL career consisted of 26 games over two non-consectutive seasons. The background on the front is just plain ugly. ” -C2Cigars

“ Insert set. Looks like a promo card. OK I guess. ” -captkirk42

“ My favorite year of hockey cards. Viktor didn't quite work out and this card is fine as an insert. ” -wax_house

Set: 1990-91 Pro Set English League (Rate)

Card: #23 David Platt

“ An actual card! Nicely designed and a good photo, if I was into this sport I would like this set a lot. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I had one relative try to repay a debt to another relative with a box of these in lieu of cash. He justified it by claiming that I had said these cards were valuable. They could be had at Big Lots for $3 a box. Since that time, I've only been able to think of him when I see a card from this set. ” -switzr1

“ Wow a real Soccer card and not one of those weird Topps Attax game cards. Looks nice OK Team name and logo would be GREAT on the front. As I'm not familiar with soccer (football, fotball) that sort of thing would help.Back looks a bit plain. Some player career stats would be nice. ” -captkirk42

“ Not a bad looking card (especially for Soccer) wish Pro Set had been better managed .They really did have some nice card sets. ” -uncaian

“ One of those rare soccer cards that ISN'T a card game. But still leaves a little to be desired. A team would be nice on the front. The vertical nameplate gets in the way. The back could do with career stats. ” -C2Cigars

“ I like the set, though I should finish looking for the variations and complete the set. ” -jupiterhill

“ Loved Pro Set football (not futbol) cards. ” -carthage44

“ This is a good looking soccer card, but how about club name on the front and some stats on the back? ” -rmpaq5

“ Pretty good, as far as soccer goes. Is dude doing a MJ imitation? ” -Doc Floyd

“ Good ad for the copier company. Get used to it basketball fans. I guess they would never use throwback jerseys unless mita paid for it. ” -NJDevils

“ Hey, a "real" soccer card. Not a game one. I don't know soccer well enough to know if "stats" are needed to make a "good" card, but I think ProSet did a very nice job on this one. ” -vrooomed

“ Oh man. Pro Set, non-major sport. Hoo boy. ” -wax_house

Set: 2006 Upper Deck (Rate)

Card: #838 Kameron Loe

“ Wow, two former Mariners in a row. Neither worth talking about! ” -ketchupman36

“ Solid, less foil would be an improvement, but overall solid. ” -rmpaq5

“ Cool photo ” -wax_house

“ A decent looking card, though I'm a sucker for borderless fronts. Now I need to go solve the mystery: Did Kameron Loe end up pitching more than 100 innings in the majors??? ” -dilemma19

“ UGHTer Deck and its love of foil. OK wish the full player name was easy to read. Nice they highlight the last name only confusing when a team has two players with same last name. Team name would be nice, got the team logo, but foiled UGH. On to the back... All around OK the way things should be except card number should be bigger and closer to one of the corners for sorting purposes. ” -captkirk42

“ Not bad for UD, no mistaking it's from them that's for sure. Hope that's an update card, being such a high number. ” -Doc Floyd

“ Honestly, not a big fan of covered faces, UNLESS it is a well-known player or famous situation. Color is good, but a little hard to read the name. Not made for us fellas with, bi-focals. ” -Jambarrett

“ In March of 2016 while in the White Sox minor leagues got busted and given an 80 game suspension after testing positive for a banned substance. Once broke his throwing hand during an in game brawl at Triple A. Google is amazing. ” -Mitch

Set: 1996 Topps (Rate)

Card: #38 Tim Belcher

“ Woo Mariners! Boo being a player not worth remembering. He played only 1 season with the M's and finished with a 10-12 record. Pitched poorly in the post-season too, losing both games he started. ” -ketchupman36

“ I like he back, and I would like the front if the smaller photo was different from the main photo. To me, repeating a photo on the same card is useless. Put the position there instead. ” -vrooomed

“ Everything a card should be. Fantastic design. ” -Doc Floyd

“ This is *totally* a mid-90's card design. Belcher strikes me as one of the most low-key #1 picks of all time. ” -dilemma19

“ Overall nice design. I don't care for the little face or foiled name on the front. Not a fan of additional photos on the back. I'm one who wants stats and bio info on the back. ” -C2Cigars

“ The smallest Topps set since 1957. Don't forget about the Mantle commemorative set and retired card. ” -RoundtheDiamond87

“ Press box photo shot. ” -carthage44

“ UGh Mid 1990s. Not thrilled with the 1996 Topps. Foil name can't read, team name should be there somewhere (other than his jersey not all photos are full body with home unis) Back should lose the picture make the stats chart easier to read. Sadly the 1990s were the beginning of Topps using a thinner card stock and bleaching the card stock pure white, so the feel of cards was changed as well as the looks. ” -captkirk42

“ Never knew he was a Mariner. ” -DarkSide830

“ Very middle-of-the-road deisgn. Not garish but not plain. The back is a little too busy. ” -realrealsoft

Set: 2010 Panini Prestige (Rate)

Card: #51 Mohamed Massaquoi

“ Panini was getting back into the game at this time and this set looked like they rushed it. ” -carthage44

“ Alright, for Panini. Really just makes me miss Topps FB even more. ” -Doc Floyd

“ Cool vignette effect. It's like he's standing in a cloud! Everything's there, but I wonder what Panini would ditch first for a player with more than one year of stats. ” -dilemma19

“ Using the same photo on both sides is just the worst. ” -wax_house

“ I can't find any redeeming qualities of this card design. ” -C2Cigars

“ What are they doing with the text at a weird angle? Team name a bit big, but at least it is there. Back a different photo for the head shot would be fine. Stats OK for this guys rookie year, for vet cards they would need full career stats. ” -captkirk42

“ Typical Panini. Not a bad design but not all that memorable. A similar design was used in the NBA. I think the player's name should be more front and center than the team name. ” -Billy Kingsley

Set: 2010 Topps Match Attax South Africa World Cup (Rate)

Card: #92 Rene Adler

“ Here we go! I wondered how long it would be before we saw some more Soccer game cards ” -SFC Temple

“ I think I can safely say Attax is the worst set ever made. ” -carthage44

“ Yes it is another soccer gaming card...but unlike most this set has a bit more traditional feel on the front as the lay out of the stats incorporate well into the card design. The back is...well it is a gaming card. ” -rmpaq5

“ The goalkeeper has an attack rating of only 4. Pathetic! ” -dilemma19

“ Oh look a soccer Topps Attax card. Front is interesting. Back hey I thought the had to all look alike since it is a card game (CCG) Maybe for Attax games things are a bit different. ” -captkirk42

“ Yes! Soccer game card! I can't wait to read all the favorable comments about this card. I definitely like it because Herr Adler is the goalkeeper for my favorite Bundesliga team, Hamburger! ” -switzr1

“ To paraphrase Will Rogers, "I've never met a Topps Match Attax I liked." ” -C2Cigars

Set: 2002 Donruss Super Estrellas (Rate)

Card: #40 Mike Sweeney

“ Never seen this one, but I like it. Guess a new card to add to my want list. ” -jupiterhill

“ Good looking set. I would collect these ” -switzr1

“ Pretty nice design wise. Looks more 1990s than 2002 (that's a compliment coming from me). I have no idea what it says but so what ? ” -Billy Kingsley

“ He was a solid player. Killed the White Sox. ” -carthage44

“ I don't think I have any Spanish cards in my collection, but not very excited to add if my only options are like this one. ” -dilemma19

“ I really like this layout. Great action shot with the team logo. Foil a bit hard on the eyes. Back is solid. I prefer more stats and bigger number, but I love narratives ” -SFC Temple

“ OK design. Important stuff can be read, don't like the foil logos but can live with them. Would be nice to see the full team name with this set as it is a Spanish edition.Back is OK but needs full stats not just one year, but *sigh* it is an early 2000s card so 1 year stats are the norm there. ” -captkirk42

“ statistics are incomplete ” -RoundtheDiamond87

Set: 1987 O-Pee-Chee (Rate)

Card: #68 Glenn Hubbard

“ OH Cool an OPC card. Nice "almost" vintage. (in some peoples books it is now vintage) Glad to see it is one of the Originals and not a more recent retro tribute. ” -captkirk42

“ Good player - GREAT set. Love the whiter backs than the Topps counterparts. ” -vrooomed

“ I like this design. Have since the first time I saw one. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Ok maybe I'm partial being from Canada, but the O-Pee-Chee backs always brighter and easier to read than Topps. ” -rmpaq5

“ Awesome. It's 1987, before packs started getting expensive. It's OPC. And it's Glenn Hubbard, whose 1984 Fleer card is my favorite card ever. Can't go wrong with this one. ” -switzr1

“ The OPC branding, and white card stock do wonders for this set for some reason. Turns an otherwise bland Topps set into a pretty decent one. Think it's the wood-grain look that bothers me. ” -Doc Floyd

“ Needs more boa. ” -volbox

Set: 2001 Topps Gold Label (Rate)

Card: #110 Tim Hudson

“ Love the Gold Labels. Clean look and the foil on this scan (as with most of them because of the extra shiny stock) don't do it justice. ” -rmpaq5

“ For a Gold Label set this isn't as nice as they usually are. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Very bland. ” -carthage44

“ Another set made worse by foil. Hudson is a guy I know by sight, but I don't like having to flip a card over to know who the player is. And the glow around him makes him look like a dead Jedi. ” -switzr1

“ Looks about like a bootleg, Gold label sure was some ugly stuff most of the time. ” -Doc Floyd

“ Foil lettering that is all I'll say. ” -captkirk42
