Set: 1999-00 Upper Deck MVP - Hands of Gold (Rate)

Card: #H7 Eric Lindros

“ Overall nice looking insert. The torso insert picture though is a bit much. ” -rmpaq5

“ Was so happy to see him make the HOF. He was so dominant on the ice, when he was healthy. About 2/3 of the hits he took are illegal now. A shame they weren't then, he could've had a longer playing career. ” -vrooomed

“ Interesting insert design. Great scan for a mirror foil. Hands are very important in most sports but I didn't know there was an insert set based on them. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Look at the inset. His hands are actually gold! Great player, nice photo, but the world would have kept spinning even if Upper Deck hadn't printed this card. ” -dilemma19

“ Hands of Gold.....meh. ” -flcardtrader

“ I thought this guy was supposed to be the next big thing? ” -carthage44

“ front isn't bad, but back is horrible, but what can you expect from Upper Deck, I'm just happy if I get something from them that isn't dinged ” -mbarlow092

“ UGH as in UGLY. Is his name even on the front there anywhere? I just see the vertical "Hands Gold" OH the "OF" is horizontal in the middle. This card BETTER look better in real life. The back I thought that writing was one of those hedge mazes. Upper Deck MVP is usually pretty bad but this one is worse than that. I think this takes the cake as the WORST MVP set ever. ” -captkirk42

Set: 2009 Press Pass - Blue (Rate)

Card: #178 Michael Waltrip's Car

“ Great action shot. I'm not into racing cards, but from what I have seen of them the fuel lit on the track really adds to the story of the picture, rather than a bland picture that looks like a picture of any other card. ” -rmpaq5

“ My first reaction was to look for a Montoya vs. Jet Dryer card. ” -volbox

“ Wow a surprise. Glad to see something other than a 1990s prospect rookie card or a minor league card. Really glad it isn't a soccer game card. ” -captkirk42

“ This pretty much sums up the lifespan of MWR pretty well. Started with scandal, ended with scandal, and now no longer in existence after throwing two of its drivers under the proverbial bus. 2009 is one of the best Press Pass sets and the only one they ever issued a series 2 for. The blue parallel was one per retail pack. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Cool looking card, not sure it's a moment Mikey wants to remember though ” -mbarlow092

“ Sadly ,Billy Bob & Jolene realized a minute too late, putting your BBQ on the track to get closer to the action was a bad idea ! ” -uncaian

“ Nice card, something different for a change. Good old dependable randomizer. ” -NJDevils

“ Did he just hit 88 MPH? ” -DaClyde

“ Wow, great shot, would have looked a lot better border-less, but good card anyhow. ” -Doc Floyd

“ Not too hard to pick out a BK scan. ” -UKboogie

Set: 1999 Topps Traded & Rookies - Autographs (Rate)

Card: #T22 Rob Ryan

“ Another auto popping up on Card of the Day! While not the hard hitting Jeter we saw last week, this is a solid looking card. Well framed and the auto location doesn't get lost in the picture. ” -rmpaq5

“ Is this the regular version or the Gold? Regular OK. Hard to read his name. Would like team logo. Hey it looks like he is wearing a t-shirt not a jersey. Back looks good, hard to read but maybe better in hand. ” -captkirk42

“ Nice card. Good photo (and scan) great design, a full bio and stats, which is rare to see on autograph cards. At this time period autographs were pretty tough pulls if it was anything like the NBA set. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Great action shot, and a good solid design, front and back. Decent signature to boot. ” -Doc Floyd

“ I'm sure lots of people will say they hate the gold borders and foil, but I think it works. Complete card back, and not too crowded. I'm glad the "Certified Autograph Issue" indicator is no longer used. ” -dilemma19

“ They need to produce more on-card autos. ” -carthage44

“ My first Card of the Day! I like this set, no sticker autos. Still looking for 5 autos to complete the set if anyone wants to trade. ” -CluelessJoe

“ Cool to see an autograph as card of the day. 1999 is probably my least favorite Topps baseball design but I like cards of obscure players that I don't remember, so this one would be a nice fit in my collection. ” -switzr1

“ I really like the 1999 Topps set. I know I am stuck in the 50s and 60s but this set really appeals to me. ” -NJdevils

“ Nice clean on card auto ” -aussiewayne

Set: 1996 Pro Line - National (Rate)

Card: #56 Craig Heyward

“ Unusual to see a Scoreboard set that is actually licensed. This is only the 4th I've seen from them that was licensed. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ This is pretty cool, although the last 9 in 499 really gets lost under the name. Not living in the states never had the chance to really experience a show as large as The National. ” -rmpaq5

“ Why!? Why!? Why did they ruin a decent looking card with such an obnoxious overstamp. They couldn't have made it smaller? They couldn't put it on the back? Well, at least they only DESTROYED!! 499 copies of each card. ” -C2Cigars

“ Sensory overload! Okay, I get that this was a National promo or something, but could they have chosen a busier card on which to add a watermark? ” -dilemma19

“ Iron Head Heyward was a BEAST, R.I.P. ” -carthage44

“ BAD 1990s Card. The foil thing about the award stamp taking most of the image area yet you can't read it. Oh there is the team logo, just needs the player's position and team name to be acceptable. Back is actually OK but not great. ” -captkirk42

Set: 1987 ProCards (Rate)

Card: #1329 Tom Novak

“ MiLB at its crossroads. Still simplistic, but well beyond it's 1970s counterparts. I still wonder if ProCards decided to number the cards the way they did to try to entice people into buying more teams to try to complete the whole set. ” -vrooomed

“ Love that team logo! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ This guy looks like he's in the senior league. ” -carthage44

“ OK, who else saw "tampons" at first glance. LOL. I like the very 80's feel to this whole card especially the sweet uniform. ” -RoyalChief

“ "Tampa Tarpons" seems dangerously close to "Tampa Tampons". Gotta love these 2800+ card sets. ” -dilemma19

“ A little less white border would be nice. One super plain font used front and back just adds to the boring level. ” -C2Cigars

“ Too much border, but other than that, great card. ” -Doc Floyd

“ Nice late 1980s Minor league card. Thought it was a 90s Minor League card at first. Got to be careful when saying the team name fast. ” -captkirk42

“ Rather plain but I like it.. The logo is very unique as well.. Definitely 80s ” -Mike67

“ Figured by the logo what it was, but just had to go look up what a Tarpon was. Could have used a bigger font size on Tampa. ” -rmpaq5

“ For a moment I thought the jersey said "Tampons". Glad I was wrong. ” -UKboogie

Set: 2001 Wizards Football Champions Premier League 2001-2002 - Action Cards (Rate)

Card: #24 Sliding Tackle

“ Ahhhh, a soccer game card. But it isn't Topps Attax. It isn't really a card of a specific player, but just a picture of game action. Reminds me of the baseball set where every pack had like 4 cards of El Duque. But with bigger/better photographs. I'm personally not a fan of the English Premier League, so I probably won't be playing this card game any time soon. ” -switzr1

“ Like and white striped jerseys. One thing for sure they have great uniform designs in this sport. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Well at least this one has an action shot. ” -uncaian

“ Look...I've played soccer all my life, but I do not collect the cards. Is there a reason almost all soccer cards seem to be gaming cards? Is gaming like this extremely popular in Europe and other parts of the world? This card does have a great action shot. ” -rmpaq5

“ These game cards are overkill. ” -carthage44

“ Is it a sports card, or a Pokemon? There are only 80, so it shouldn't be too hard to catch them all... Great photo, but I guess finding a good shot is easier if it doesn't need to feature a particular player. ” -dilemma19

“ Bizarro luv this card ” -NJDevils

“ huuuuuuhhhhhhh........... ” -SFC Temple

“ Looks like an Oddball game card.Of course it is soccer. ” -captkirk42

Set: 1989 Star (Rate)

Card: #190 Ron Morton

“ :) I love seeing Star Co cards here. We need to either fix the back scan or get the original scanner a better card! I can't really comment on the design as I'm overly familiar with it. I liked it then, and I still like it today! The photo was pretty good too. ” -vrooomed

“ I wonder if I am the only one who saw this and starting thinking about the (I think!) Abba song...and then about Napoleon. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ You couldn't escape this card if you tried to... ” -ShoTime

“ After a quick look at his stats went to his cards page. 6 cards, anybody have the 1989 Star Waterloo Diamonds #21 we can complete his gallery :). On a more serious note once again I really enjoy the simple designs that go with most minor league cards. They just seem to mesh. ” -rmpaq5

“ Always really liked the Star cards, something about the simplistic designs, and the colorful borders. ” -Doc Floyd

“ Hey Ladies... the name's Ron...Ron "MORE"ton ” -SFC Temple

“ I miss Star cards. ” -carthage44

“ Thanks 'sandyrusty" for quickly adding the back! ” -bkklaos

“ Hey look, it's Steve Rannazzisi from The League ” -ketchupman36

“ Nice ans simple minor league 1990s card. Acceptable as is for what it is. NEXT. ” -captkirk42

“ Probably would have had a better career had he remembered to use a ball in the windup. ” -NJdevils

“ What an awkward pose. Hey Ron, give me a smile while putting your hands over your head in a way that somewhat resembles a pitch windup, but falls just a bit short. How long did he have to stand like this before they got the right photo? The card itself is somewhat boring, a very standard look for a minor league card. ” -muskie027

Set: 1998-99 Fleer Brilliants (Rate)

Card: #3 Steve Nash

“ My all time least favorite NBA set, and (one of) my least favorite player. Blah. This set is terrible, in that it's both sticky and greasy at the same time- it was greasy when new, and got sticky soon after. The cards are actually plastic and I suspect Fleer cheaped out on the plastic and it's already biodegrading. I suspect if you tried to open a pack now they would all be stuck together. Oh, and if you try to remove any of the dust that invariably sticks to it, the coating on the front of the card chips off and makes it even worse. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Another great player. Photo is a good shot, background is depressing. Back is alright. ” -Doc Floyd

“ Great player! Why does the front image look like a photo studio? ” -dilemma19

“ Nash with the Mavericks, what a flashback. ” -carthage44

“ "Short", Canadian and an N.B.A. star go figure. ” -uncaian

“ Since basketball is played indoors, and you don't see many cards with grass in the background, I guess Fleer figured a glop of battleship gray would suffice. ” -NJDevils

“ Yuck. What is that background? The "Time Tunnel"? Eye of a tornado? A whirlpool? And that is not an "N" that's an uppercase Pi from the Greek alphabet. Pronounced with a "p" sound...it's Steve Pash! ” -C2Cigars

“ So strange...so many feelings...cool but odd...ugly but legendary...too many feelings to describe. ” -DarkSide830

“ A 1990s card OF COURSE. Dark and dingy color for front. Hard to read foil name, but easier than sometimes. If name and team were easier to read I'd like it. The back usual suspects only one line of stats player picture too large. ” -captkirk42

“ Steve Nash, seen here exiting the time tunnel.... ” -DaClyde

Set: 2003 Leaf Rookies & Stars (Rate)

Card: #164 Cory Redding

“ I didn't realize Rookies & Stars was an older brand. I am only familiar with it's two NBA releases in 2009-10 and 2010-11. None of them are that interesting as they are all pretty much just a photo of a player superimposed over a white background with some color. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Anybody else have George Castanza's "The Art of Seduction" from Seinfeld pop into their head? Man I think I need help... ” -rmpaq5

“ What a boring card, seriously they couldn't find a card with him actually doing something other than stretching like catching a bowl, blocking another player ” -aussiewayne

“ Oh how I love Rookies & Stars. Sad to see them not being produced anymore. ” -carthage44

“ Redding had the meanest lunge I ever did see ” -ketchupman36

“ Design is OK. Cant read a single thing. Don't like these practice or Rookie Day pictures, at least this is more of a uniform than some of those where the guy has a tank top that says RB/13 or whatever position and random number. Back not great but for a rookie is OK I guess. ” -captkirk42

Set: 1999 UD Choice (Rate)

Card: #16 Calvin Pickering

“ I'm sure the card when in hand doesn't have this affect, but in the scan he almost camouflages into the background like a chameleon. ” -rmpaq5

“ I didn't know they played baseball in the snow. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I honestly have nothing positive to say about this card. Well, I am positive about that. Nothing is working on this card. Sorry. ” -vrooomed

“ Dull, bland, and boring. ” -Doc Floyd

“ This card strikes me as having been "assembled" in a desktop publishing application by someone who has never attended a baseball game, much less one in which Calvin Pickering participated. What happened to Calvin Pickering anyway?! He tore up double-A, and the Orioles had no particularly noteworthy incumbent at 1B around 2000 (pre-retirement Will Clark, Jeff Conine). How did he not get a good look?? ” -dilemma19

“ OK design everything can be read sort of. Again text should have a clear distinction between upper and lower case lettering. Color for this sub-set of the base cards is awful and dull. Back due to the colors and format also looks awful. What was UD thinking? I think they weren't. ” -captkirk42

“ I remember this guy. He had so much power just couldn't make enough contact. ” -carthage44

“ White uniform against a white background. Even a 5th grader understands the concept of contrast. The whole design, front and back, has no eye appeal. ” -C2Cigars
