Set: 2002 Donruss Originals (Rate)

Card: #324 Chan Ho Park

“ Nice throwback, but they should have changed the 86 to 02. Nicely scanned as well. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I like a lot of the standard Donruss base sets from the 80's, but not this. ” -muskie027

“ One of my favorite designs from Donruss when the '86 cards came out, but come on! It's not like Topps commemorating a design from 50-years ago. Donruss should have waited another 36-years to honor an original design. ” -Sportzcommish

“ Solid card. Not great, but clean cut. Bonus points for Park. ” -DarkSide830

“ I spent way too much time playing Tony LaRussa Baseball III (1996) on my PC, and no matter how many times I ran the draft (distribution of all current roster players), Chan Ho was always last picked. Awesome and fun game, but poor guy... ” -CrazieJoe

“ He had a very nice long solid career. ” -carthage44

“ Donruss Archives? ” -rmpaq5

“ I always liked these Donruss Originals, they were Donruss' version of Bowman Heritage basically. Decent player, good scan too. ” -JoshReese92099

“ Nice retro card. Technically not an "original" it is a 2002 of a modern player and says "Donruss '86" to indicate it was what only 6 years prior? What? Whatever forgettaboutit! ” -captkirk42

“ The only thing i remember from him was the time he tried to jump kick somebody, but failed ” -Bargunmaster

Set: 2012 Philadelphia Phillies Photocards First Edition (Rate)

Card: #NNO Kyle Kendrick

“ This might have made a nice major released set as far as design goes. The color is a bit dull though and it doesn't have the look of a good major league card because there just feels like there is something missing. They could have put some color on the back. ” -muskie027

“ Not bad, I like it ” -702tpr777

“ An appealing front to this team-issued card. Its most outstanding feature is the player information banner modeled after bats. Why hadn't the big card companies thought of such a banner? ” -Sportzcommish

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

“ Cool to see teams still issue stuff like this, at least in baseball. As usual, my sports don't do that. Based on the text size I would guess this is 5x7 or larger? ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I like the use of wood grain for the name plate on the front of the card. ” -CollectingAfterDeath

“ Isn't a photocard just an over-sized baseball card? Kind of annoying in terms of storage. ” -mkaz80

“ I dont like this card very much ” -Bargunmaster

“ Great front. I will not comment on the back. ” -NJDevils

“ Neither the front or the back images were cropped before they were uploaded? Shut the front door! ” -UKboogie

“ Nice design. Wish there was a way to indicate "card" size (other than a larger or smaller image size that may or may not indicate a different sized card) These apparently are 5x7. I wonder if they are are photo stock paper or cardboard card stock? Personally when things are about this size or larger I no longer call them cards, I call them photos then when they get larger than a standard sheet of paper I tend to call them posters. Depends on the paper stock also. ” -captkirk42

Set: 1971-72 Eddie Sargent NHL Players Stickers (Rate)

Card: #9 John Bucyk

“ The family photo of Uncle Buc? ” -Sportzcommish

“ Looks like he has most of of teeth. ” -carthage44

“ Borders on only three sides? Very alarming. I wish they would do more portrait shots of current players (hockey and football), so collectors can see what the subjects look like beneath the helmets and masks. ” -dilemma19

“ NIce early 70s sticker. ” -captkirk42

“ One of my favorite players. Great player , great leader , classy guy. I know this is "just a stamp" ,but it is still cooler than most of the stuff they put out nowadays. ” -uncaian

“ The back of the card has been scanned but yet there is no information about who submitted the back scan. Must be a glitch! ” -ketchupman36

“ Love it! What a great player. ” -NJDevils

“ I don't have a desire to own this set, but I still think it's classic & cool! ” -bkklaos

“ William Shatner and Alfred E Neuman had a kid? Weird. ” -revnorb

“ This is great because of the retro nature of the card, I just with there was a way you could tell it was a hockey card without needing to label it as such. Kind of just looks like a yearbook photo. ” -muskie027

Set: 2002-03 Topps Heritage (Rate)

Card: #23 Erik Cole

“ They're here... ” -sahal694

“ Great card! This tv design is cool no matter what subject is shown. I'm a fan of the heritage sets. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Will kids who see this card think that televisions were routinely constructed of lacquered maple back in the day? ” -revnorb

“ Not bad , I just wish it they had of stuck to the way the original fronts were done. ” -uncaian

“ Like this design a lot! ” -carthage44

“ A valiant effort, but the giant Erik Cole leaping over the boards and through my brand new color TV screen doesn't distract me from the Leafs v. Red Wings game happening in the background. Yes, I know. Good 1950s images involving the Carolina Hurricanes are scarce... ” -dilemma19

“ Little streak of hockey. Never really knew this set was made. Actually a pretty cool card. ” -muskie027

“ He played in the USHL for my hometown hockey team the Des Moines Buccaneers! Great card! ” -JoshReese92099

“ Nice retro card. Of course the 1955 Bowman TV design doesn't translate to well to modern photography technology. It looks like goofy low quality CGI. The back is OK and follows the design. ” -captkirk42

“ How long before they put a player's pic on an Iphone? Then 50 years from now we can have Heritage of a player on some weird looking gadget called an Iphone. ” -NJDevils

“ This card reminds me of the old TV we had our new TV on when I was a kid. ” -UKboogie

“ I believe flat screens had made it by 2002. One of my least favorite baseball set designs is the 1955 Bowman and it didn't get any better in 2002 nor with the change in sport. ” -Sportzcommish

Set: 1991-92 Bowman (Rate)

Card: #5 Randy Ladouceur

“ I wish Hartford still had a team! Even though I live in the state of NY I would have considered the Whalers my home team. In a total coincidence the last team I needed to see play after I got into the NHL this season was the Carolina Hurricanes, what used to be the Whalers. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Much like this card Randy wasn't flashy but he got the job done. ” -uncaian

“ Bowman cards always had a good smell. ” -carthage44

“ Ah early 1990s the Return of Bowman across all the sports. I like the simplicity of this set, I wish the team name or logo was on the front. The back is also pretty good. ” -captkirk42

“ I've always liked how Bowman listed stats broken down by team. Kind of a nice variation from the norm. ” -olerud363

“ Their team breakdown on the back made the sets unique, but I never really enjoyed the look of it. ” -DanD

“ Bring back the Hartford Whalers!!!! I am sorry to all the "modern teams" but seeing these older teams reminds me of real hockey. We've brought back the Jets, now let's get the Whalers and Nordiques!!!! ” -muskie027

“ finally back to some sports cards, arguably one of the best logos in all of sports ” -Thunderfoot

“ that's FORMER RED WING, Randy Ladouceur to you ” -Howintensive

“ Interesting stats on the back. ” -cjjt

Set: 2000 Pacific (Rate)

Card: #305 Ed Yarnall

“ Nice looking card reminds me of Fleer cards. ” -captkirk42

“ Not a true rookie card. ” -carthage44

“ A player who was drafted by both of the New York baseball clubs. How many guys can say that? I love the look of this set, by the way. ” -mkaz80

“ Young Ed's looking awfully cocky considering he'll end up pitching 20 major league innings. Gave up 5ER over 1+ innings in his final big league appearance, but Bronx bats took him off the hook for a loss, scoring 8 in the bottom of the 2nd. Generally a nice looking card, though I feel like something's missing on the back... ” -dilemma19

“ To me a noteworthy set because it's one that included Olerud (#282) on the variation checklist, with "action" and "portrait" versions. Otherwise, a very nondescript set. ” -olerud363

“ Yankees pinstripes look great on anyone. Even Ed Yarnall. Whoever he is. ” -Sportzcommish

“ 90% of all the rookie cards in the 90's to early 2000's never had half-decent careers ” -Bargunmaster

“ At first I thought "Wow that is a ton of unused space on the back." Then thought since it has a rookie label on the front others in the set would have more information in that gaping area. Should have stuck with my first thought. ” -rmpaq5

Set: 2001-02 Topps High Topps - Above and Beyond (Rate)

Card: #AB1 John Stockton

“ I assume this is talking about Stockton's shorts length. ” -sahal694

“ The High Topps set featured metallic white borders, but nothing I tried would make that show. This was the 6th and thankfully final "tall boy" set issued for the NBA. Stockton was/is the greatest point guard in history. All time leader in both steals and assists, the only player to lead two of the main statistical categories in the NBA. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Best PG of all time? My list is Magic, Stockton, Isaiah (the original, although version 2.0 is getting really good), Robertson, and Westbrook. ” -Brimose

“ I like the card but do not like the "Above and Beyond" font. ” -NJDevils

“ Really dislike the over-sized cards. ” -carthage44

“ LOL at the set title "Topps High Topps" What Converse made trading cards Hehehe. Oh alright time to get serious. I'm guessing this is standard tall boy size? Difficult to read player name and I'm guessing the team name is below the player name. Topps logo blends in as well is it also in foil like the name(s)? What is that blue basketball thing a logo for the set. Oh it looks like it is an extension of the "Above and Beyond" title logo on the card. Ugly with a capital UGH. Back is actually pretty good. I'm guessing the PAR stats there are the reason for the set or is it a sub-set of some kind? ” -captkirk42

“ Is it futuristic, or is it retro? I can't decide! ” -dilemma19

“ Nice shot ” -Bargunmaster

Set: 1995 Topps Star Wars Widevision (Rate)

Card: #26 Ext. Tatooine - Sand Pit

“ Never been a fan of these "Widescreen" cards they are just sideways TALL BOYS. ” -captkirk42

“ May = non-sport month. I love everything Star Wars! Just missed May 4th on this one. Love C3PO and can't stop laughing every time I see the old error card that was pulled back early in the card series. If you haven't seen it, search for it (make sure your kids don't see it or you got some explaining to do!!!). ” -muskie027

“ Before Disney took over I would have been thrilled to see this COTD. Not so much anymore, my love for all things Star Wars has been greatly diminished. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I have never seen Star Wars so this is just confusing. ” -carthage44

“ nice sleek design ” -Bargunmaster

“ I love Star Wars cards like I love the franchise! Except. Wide vision. I don't like any of them, very ridiculous to store. ” -Joshua825

“ Much like most movie cards, they lose meaning in the translation. I believe they work best when focused on a character as it is with sports cards. I'm sure individual cards of each main character is part of the set, and I'd prefer those to this. ” -Sportzcommish

Set: 1998 Pacific Paramount - Silver (Rate)

Card: #197 Orlando Pace

“ Another Pacific card that was real good, but there is something that makes it not great. Pace was awesome. The card really is nice. ” -muskie027

“ Orlando Pace could make a team name, too. But people would always wonder if he founded the team. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Nice card.My second fave NFL team Da Rams. (its Roman Gabriel's fault LOL) back is OK for a non-stat card in an era when there really should be full stats on the back. ” -captkirk42

“ Heck yeah, a Buckeye for RCOTD! And a Hall of Famer at that! Pace had an amazing career at both levels. And one of the nicest guys you could ever meet. ” -Brimose

“ He is a large human. ” -carthage44

“ Wish the Rams would go back to this uniform full-time. Conversely, I'm glad the Niners came to their senses and ditched the black drop shadow and striping. ” -mkaz80

“ It's difficult for me to like a card when it's indistinguishable which player it's for. On top of the fact that his jersey number is hidden in a shadow or due to the angle of the picture. ” -Sportzcommish

“ Wow, so much random football and nonsport lately. ” -olerud363

Set: 2004-05 Pacific (Rate)

Card: #100 Ty Conklin

“ Another uncentered and uncut image. ” -carthage44

“ Overall an OK card. My gripes about the front the player and team name in the silver foil lettering on a dark gray background "box" That is one of the big reasons I prefer regular printing and CONTRASTING colors for the text font and the background it is against. Ever notice how hard it is to read WHITE lettering against a photo not a background color? OK the back too much blank space. They seem to show the entire pro experience in the stats, with players like this guy who has only played a few seasons there is plenty of space below to list some career highlights, or a brief career history or scouting report on the player. Don't like the left hand vertical read from top to bottom personal ID info. I forget if I have any of my Caps from this set. ” -captkirk42

“ He was supposed to be a great goalie. Besides being marooned on "Edmonton rebuild island", I wonder what happened... Foil scans terribly, but I realize it works for hockey cards (blades of steel and all). Plenty of blank space on the back. ” -dilemma19

“ As the father of a high school hockey goalie (my daughter) I say yes. I don't think the back of this card could be more boring though. They couldn't use the space to write a little something. "Ty hates hockey pucks" ” -cnangle

“ Is this the scan, a poorly centered card, or was the slight angle by design? You see the angle more on the back than on the front. Pacific always had cards that were close to great, but came up just short. This one isn't too bad. ” -muskie027

“ Love the classic goalie pose, but the bottom info bar needed more thought. ” -Sportzcommish
