Set: 1996-97 Metal Universe (Rate)

Card: #184 Jamie Langenbrunner

“ Interesting that this design was used in 1996-97 for hockey, it was used for 1997-98 for the NBA. It's one of the more quirky and bizarre concepts, and it looks great in hand. In scans not so much due to being totally etched foil aside from the picture. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Negative. Don't like the Metal sets. Next. ” -captkirk42

“ Not a bad set, still a bit busy on the front. I don't like the gold ribbon looks like he's getting attacked by a snake. Langenbrunner was a great player , even better in the playoffs with two Stanley Cups to prove it. ” -uncaian

“ Should I be able to read that front? Can't say I like the back any more than the front. ” -DarkSide830

“ I though these metal cards were cool when I was young. Now I hate them! ” -carthage44

“ Pretty cool fantasy art NON-Sports card. ” -captkirk42

“ Awesome art! I love it! I'll have to look for this set! ” -bkklaos

“ I had no idea dragons could read! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Are these Dungeons and Dragons? If not, I have no clue what this is. ” -carthage44

“ I have no idea what this is. I just know it makes me nauseous. ” -C2Cigars

Set: 2000 SkyBox (Rate)

Card: #25 Donovan McNabb

“ I wonder why this set was called Skybox in football and I think baseball, but the NBA set was called "Fleer Premium"? I prefer Skybox personally, although for some reason I have never really cared much for this design. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Good looking set, although it really looks like an Upper Deck design to me, not a Skybox design. ” -switzr1

“ An OK card design, except for the dang gold leaf border/lettering. It is easier to read than some but still that "junk years" mentality of foil lettering, ” -captkirk42

“ This is probably tough to scan. It looks really cool. ” -wax_house

“ A solid QB that never could get a ring. Still rooted for him since he was a local guy. ” -carthage44

Set: 1998 Ultra - Rush Hour (Rate)

Card: #14RH Andre Wadsworth

“ This running back was FAST. I know this because the card is all blurry. ” -ketchupman36

“ Yes. Our leisure activities should be designed to remind us of the most despised intervals of our work day. ” -dilemma19

“ This card does nothing for me. ” -captkirk42

“ I'm not fond of the blurry background on both sides.I also find the text hard to read. I do like the overall card design other than these issues. ” -Mitch

“ Much like sitting in traffic, looking at this card makes me irritated and anxious. It looks like Wadsworth is crashing into an Impressionist painting. ” -jlamberth

“ The only thing that is fast about this guy is how quickly he was out of the league. ” -carthage44

“ This is one boring, bleh, card. ” -DarkSide830

Set: 1991 Impel G.I. Joe (Rate)

Card: #96 In from the Cold

“ Although I had my first comic read to me at 5 days old, the GI Joe series was the first I read as an actual series- not just random issues. Although I no longer collect the action figures, I do still collect the comic- the series that started in 1982 ended in 1994, and then came back in 2009 or 2010, with the same numbering and storylines and even the same writer. This was the either the second or third card set I ever completed, probably third, but unfortunately I didn't start keeping records until 1998. GI Joe has played a huge role in my life since 1990, and still plays a role, albeit smaller, to this very day. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I dont' see the appeal, but I'll say it's a pretty good looking card. "Armed conflict" was a prominent theme in 1991. ” -dilemma19

“ Oh Wow an old Impel card. Talk about your flashbacks. Nice card all around, back reminds me of the bio cards that are on the backs of the figures package. That must be the idea. I think this was when Impel was still a MD based company. I was really excited for them at the time since I am a Marylander. ” -captkirk42

“ I bought the first few issues of this comic series when it came out. Haven't picked up any G.I. Joe cards. ” -armac

“ My boys collected these. Still have some unopened packs here. They took this direction along with comic books so I am stuck with the sportscards. Good memories. ” -NJDevils

“ One of my favorite cartoons growing up. ” -carthage44

“ A combination of my 2 favorite hobbies. The 86 set has the original JOE art which, IMHO, is near perfection. ” -SFC Temple

Set: 1997 Fleer Goudey (Rate)

Card: #69 Junior Seau

“ Weird when Frank H. Fleer is printed larger than Junior Seau. ” -kaline6

“ Frank H. Fleer looks an awful lot like Junior Seau. ” -jupiterhill

“ R.I.P ” -carthage44

“ I just don't see the fascination with putting current players on old format cards. But no one says you have to buy them and I didn't. ” -NJDevils

“ Not a bad card at all. SAYOWWWWWW, we miss you. ” -RoyalChief

“ Shouldn't Junior Seau be the highlighted name on the card and not Frank H. Fleer? Would love to have any/all Junior Seau cards, however! ” -bkklaos

“ Love the Retro stuff, but love the real vintage even more. What to say about this? 1997 Fleer, I think was the first attempt by a modern card company to make a retro set based on the early 1930s Goudey sets. Nice card all the way around, oh wow I just noticed the shadow Cool. ” -captkirk42

“ Junior was the only NFL Player that made opponents call his name out when he tackled them cause they say .....Junior Say-Ow!!!!!!! ” -Chargers Charlie

“ Has anyone created a confirmed CTE collection yet? Sad some of the greatest athletes have lost so much quality of life due to injuries sustained while playing. His 20 year career as a linebacker is amazing by any standard. ” -Mitch

“ I like this retro design, just not sure why it is 96-97..why not one or the other? maybe released in jan of 97? ” -mzentko

“ I'm sure everyone will say this, but this sure makes it look like Frank H. Fleer is the name of the pictured player. ” -wax_house

“ It's a shame what happenned to this man. It's simple proof the NFL only cares about making a buck. ” -deporcoruña

Set: 2010 Topps WWE Slam Attax Mayhem (Rate)

Card: #70 Kelly Kelly

“ Ah, one of the worst female wrestlers to ever grace the squared circle. Only got as far she did because she was easy on the eyes. As for the card, it's simply "meh." ” -ShoTime

“ No shirt on front, no stats on back. ” -dilemma19

“ Oh yeah! I miss Kelly Kelly. One of the worst wrestlers I've ever seen on TV. Yet I miss her. I really like the Slam Attax sets too. Sometimes they actually get some wrestlers that base Topps misses. ” -switzr1

“ Did Topps make Attax out of everything? ” -DarkSide830

“ I really dislike the WWE but the chicks they have, WOW! If you haven't seen the show "Total Divas" on the E channel, check it out! ” -carthage44

“ All of a sudden I have interest in the gaming cards... ” -SFC Temple

“ Oooh La La. I am so not mature. Kinda looks like our dog straddling her head. ” -Kaline6

Set: 1951-52 Bedard & Donaldson (Laval Dairy) QSHL (Rate)

Card: #36 Jimmy Moore

“ Another cool vintage hockey card...I'm not sure what exactly the card text says but I think he was born in 1929? ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Really neat card set. ” -vrooomed

“ Another oddball vintage card. Cool. I really wish there had been a DC or Baltimore Hockey team back in those days so I could have some Homie Hockey vintage to pursue. ” -captkirk42

“ Decent looking old-time hockey card. I wonder how big it is. It seems like a card that would be oversized. Not a criticism; I love oversized cards. ” -switzr1

“ Blank back and all...still cool! ” -bkklaos

“ Love the Vintage or in this case - "Aimer le Millesime" ” -uncaian

“ Another great early hockey card. No gloss, no GU, no auto, simply a wonderful card. ” -NJDevils

“ I wonder how these were released? Cut from cardboard boxes? ” -carthage44

Set: 2015 Topps Update - Rarities (Rate)

Card: #R-7 Anibal Sanchez

“ OK, Help me here. How did he get four strikeouts in the first inning. That IS quite a "rarity"!!!! Must be a mistake or I'm reading it wrong. ” -RoyalChief

“ I didn't think 4 K's to start a postseason game was that rare but I guess it has only happened twice. A nice little trivia. ” -carthage44

“ Interesting design, and eye-appealing font style on back. I'm also a big Anibal fan. ” -DarkSide830

“ Good scan! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I love sets like this that commemorate events that actually happened. Topps has been good like this in recent years. ” -switzr1

“ Boring. Since I can't think of anything nice to say about this card, I'll leave it at that. ” -dilemma19

“ Good thing this is an insert card, also bad thing it is an insert card. It looks like a useless card added as an insert just to add inserts to an already too large set. ” -captkirk42

Set: 1998-99 Panini Photocards (Rate)

Card: #75 Keith Tkachuk

“ would have been a lot nicer if they made this into an actual card design and something on the back. nice pic shot though ” -tonym

“ Guess the "photocard" designation explains this one. Why did Phoenix become Arizona anyway? ” -DarkSide830

“ Great photograph! Although he was the face of the franchise for a couple of seasons, I associate Tkachuk less with the Coyotes than with the Blues. ” -dilemma19

“ One of the best American power forwards ever. I really liked this set, nice action shots. ” -uncaian

“ Nice photocard. I'm guessing they are about postcard size? ” -captkirk42

“ These are great for in person autographs. ” -carthage44

“ What can one say. It's a photo on cardstock. The only thing plainer than this would be a black & white photo. I don't care for them, especially their oversized format. ” -C2Cigars
