Random Card of the Day

Thursday, November 12, 2015

Set: 1989 ProCards (Rate)

Card: #531 Chuck Hensley

“ Look up his stats...this guy had a rough career! How can you NOT strike fear into batters with a name like THAT?! ” -domentho

“ I liked the layout of these, but wasn't a huge fan of the colored borders, but that was the way for these upstart card companies to differentiate them from the established companies. Even Fleer & Donruss had been using colored borders in the recent years leading up to this set. ” -vrooomed

“ A fine Minor League '80s card. ” -captkirk42

“ How can you not be smiling when you're wearing rainbow sleeves like these? ” -dilemma19

“ This really isn't that bad of a one-size-fits-all generic design, except for the lame "ProCards" up top and the fact that the team logo is expected to fit into a home-plate-sized space, even when it's short and wide like this team's. ” -revnorb

“ They really liked the home plate design. ” -carthage44

Set: 2009 TriStar Obak (Rate)

Card: #51 Monty Stratton

“ Pretty amazing that he was able to come back and play baseball after what happened to him. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Nope no and no thanks. ” -addysdaddy

“ Interesting story! ” -vrooomed

“ Who doesn't love Base Ball? ” -wax_house

“ You made it back after a year-long recovery from Tommy John surgery? Big deal. I won 18 games on an amputated leg! ” -dilemma19

“ For some reason I don't like Obak cards. I think because the first year they came out I first saw them on someone's blog and thought they were custom cards. ” -captkirk42

“ So this guy shot himself in the leg that required amputation yest he still came back and pitched winning 18 games! WOW!!! ” -carthage44

“ Is this guy related to the character in the old baseball movie, "The Stratton Story" from 1949? ” -ToppsBawlyn87

Set: 1984 O-Pee-Chee Gremlins (Rate)

Card: #3 The Old Oriental Man

“ My FAVORITE Christmas movie! ” -domentho

“ I liked the movie, didn't collect the cards. I like the concept of movie cards. ” -Kaline6

“ At first glance I thought that was David LoPan from Big Trouble in Little China. "A Chinese girl with green eyes!" ” -Id8jlb8666

“ No name required. Is that a pipe?? ” -dilemma19

“ Another cool non-sport random. ” -captkirk42

“ Must be drinking chocolate milk with that flex-straw. ” -NJdevils

“ HAHA the Old Oriental Man. Nice to see that he got a card. ” -carthage44

Set: 1971-72 Topps (Rate)

Card: #132 Bill Bridges

“ A classic design...Topps first standard sized NBA set since 1957-58. This set saw the first cards issued for the ABA, although this is not one of them. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Very nice set. Wish I had this one. Back is full of info, and the blue/yellow combination reminds me of the 70 baseball backs. ” -Kaline6

“ not a fan of that team lettering. its like they were doing some beach graffiti ” -tonym

“ That's a lot of fun. ” -wax_house

“ Vintage Hoops. HooooRAH! ” -captkirk42

“ Groovy card, man. I must be trippin' man. Can you dig that far out font?......Whew, sorry, I was having a flashback. Bill just recently died of cancer (25 Sep). RIP Bill. Well, I'm goin' to split now. Keep on Truckin'. ” -C2Cigars

“ Great card. Too bad it was during my hiatus from collecting. No real need for the possessive apostrophe after the Hawks on the card. ” -NJdevils

“ Trippy! ” -carthage44

Set: 1993 Magic the Gathering Beta (Rate)

Card: #NNO Samite Healer

“ I need this card for Mondays! ” -domentho

“ The game that keeps nerds off the streets. ” -uncaian

“ I heard this is still popular. Weird!!! ” -carthage44

“ One of the few wise things I've done in my card hoard...er collecting has been to avoid the madness that is Magic The Gathering. For a collector it is an insane thing to attempt. Even for "players" it can be an insane thing to collect. For the players it is all about the power of the card in play, for collectors it would be the rarity of the "rare" cards. ” -captkirk42

“ Arrrrrrgh! ” -Kaline6

“ I work with guys who spend a ton of money on this game. Hmm....I will stick with Baseball and Star Wars instead! ” -Joshua825

Set: 2015 Bowman - Chrome Farm's Finest Mini (Rate)

Card: #FFM-AN Aaron Nola

“ Card should have had a number. I hate it when they don't use numbers. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ It's a jungle out there, and kind of an A-HA video, too. ” -revnorb

“ Irony - this card is available for write up on the same day another Phillies card was the Card of the Day. Sadly, I have neither of them. Started 13 games for MLB's worst team in 2015 and had a 6-2 record. A lot of upside! ” -vrooomed

“ You rarely see current year cards in the "Card of the Day". ” -carthage44

“ Farm's Finest? Another reason many (and myself) dislike Bowman Prospect cards. They are great for your team when you are a team collector but set collectors need to draw the line with all the chromes and minis and yadda yadda extras. ” -captkirk42

Set: 2008 Top Trumps Specials Disney Pixar - The Collection (Rate)

Card: #NNO26 Sally

“ Not real big on the gaming cards but I enjoyed the movie. I saw it on the very last day it was in the theaters. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Well...I like Disney, I like cars, I like cards. I don't care for Disney car cards. ” -Kaline6

“ Whoa, Sally is one cool star. ” -dah15

“ How is this a trading card? Never cared for nor considered card games to be true trading cards. Especially, when the whole "set" comes in a single package. I don't call that a "set" I call it a "deck". ” -C2Cigars

“ I've seen other series of Top Trumps cards but to the best of my knowledge I don't have any (yet). I used to be sort of anti-Trumps cards due to their being similar to other TCGs. Now I am not against them I just haven't made a real decision on any of them. ” -captkirk42

“ She may be a soft-top, but Sally is far brighter than the score reported on this card. ” -dilemma19

“ My daughter would love these!!! I need to find some for her. ” -carthage44

“ Booooooooooo! ” -ToppsBawlyn87

Set: 1996-97 Fleer (Rate)

Card: #36 Joe Smith

“ The bit at the lower left corner looks like some overly complex watermark developed by the US Treasury Dept. to thwart counterfeiting. ” -revnorb

“ One of my all-time favorite sets. I'll never forget the first time I got any of them, it would have been around this time of the year in 1996. (I didn't think to keep records yet at that point). It was the start of my first full season as an NBA fan, and there was a big celebration for the NBA's 50th Anniversary. There are a few sets that are extra important to me and most of them reside in the 1996-97 season- my favorite in NBA history. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Fun facts: In his one season with the Pistons, they brought him to a game and the fans cheered, "We want Joe!" Later, the Pistons had a "Joe Smith Night" where fans named "Joe" or "Smith" could get it at a discounted rate. ” -wax_house

“ Too much wasted space on the back. ” -carthage44

“ Not much to say. Back needs more info, maybe a bio or some interesting facts? Too plain. ” -captkirk42

“ Nice action shot on the front, lots and lots of empty real estate on the back. ” -Kaline6

Set: 2000 SP Authentic (Rate)

Card: #65 Troy Edwards

“ One of the better SP Authentic designs...I like the embossing that's on it...though it does not show up in scans too often. It's actually easier to see on the back most of the time. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Hey! Look where you're going! You're about to run into a bunch of fancy looking curly stuff! ” -revnorb

“ Looks like he's running right off the card. I got em...I got em...I got em...oops...I ain't got em. ” -Kaline6

“ "Watch out for the pole in front of you!" ” -ToppsBawlyn87

“ his foot is over the white line...out of bounds ” -addysdaddy

“ Yawn. ” -wax_house

“ I've seen better post-junk years-junk. ” -captkirk42

“ Upper had a nice run during the early 2000's. This set included. ” -carthage44

Set: 2000 Pokemon Base Set 2 (Rate)

Card: #38 Dratini

“ YES!!!! I loved playing this game with the kids. Sitting on the floor, openeing packs and trading back and forth was fun.Sadly, it went the way of all other cards when the stronger cards only became available if you bought the more expensive blister packs; no more great finds in wax. Kids grown now and they took the cards with them. ” -SFC Temple

“ oh, no... ” -domentho

“ No comment. ” -Kaline6

“ Kind of plain for a Pokemon card don't you think? I have tried to avoid the whole CCG/TCG thing (The RPG of trading card collecting/gaming) ” -captkirk42

“ Um, what? Are you kidding me? ” -ToppsBawlyn87

“ Scissors, please. ” -NJdevils

“ 5 foot 11 inches and only 7 pounds? WOW ” -carthage44
