Set: 1958 Topps (Rate)

Card: #69 Chicago Cardinals

“ Let me be one of the first, of no doubt many, who state they really miss team cards like this. ” -rmpaq5

“ Team cards are always great. Any sport. Any era. All great! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ There are few vintage cards that I'd be critical of, and really the design is okay for this one; it's just that team picture cards aren't my thing. ” -Sportzcommish

“ Neat to see the old team names that are generally iconic but for diffetent cities. "Cardinals" doesn't sound right without St Louis in front of it. ” -olerud363

“ Classic football, nice! Plus the classic scratch-off trivia on the back. ” -IfbBirdsCards

“ Love those vintage cards. ” -kirkscards

“ Team cards with a team photo no longer exist which stinks. ” -carthage44

“ Oh what a beautiful card!!! I remember scratching the back with nickel to see the answer. ” -NJDevils

“ Team Card! I wish they made them every year. ” -jayoneill

“ I don't do football, but I was always a fan of the team cards in any sport. This is a great card. ” -vrooomed

“ Neat team card. I love the logo. ” -RoyalChief

“ This is a really cool card. Love it love it love it. ” -muskie027

“ Funny how the vintage cards seem to always have a good look to them. I really like how the team was put into the football shaped oval. This is one of the football sets I'd love to own. ” -CollectingAfterDeath

“ Wow, I did not know the Cardinals history is rooted in Chicago. Cool. ” -Doe MG

“ This is such a great card. Never was a football fan, but a card like this could actually end up being loved in my collection. ” -YoRicha

“ I don't care what the team is, you have to love a classic team card like this one. ” -DanD

“ I have this card in my Personal Collection. I love vintage Topps cards. This 1958 Topps Football Card, depicts the Chicago Cardinals a team that would become The ST Luis Cardinals now known as The Arizona Cardinals. I love this piece for its vibrant colors and the trivia game on the card back ads to the collectibility of this 1958 Topps Football Set. Collectors look for vibrant card backs with clean white lettering. The mini-game was a coin rub game that would reveal the answer as a picture, and collectors look for very rare unscratched cards. Those unscratched cards have a premium price. This Chicago Cardinals Team card unscratched would fetch $45.00 to $100.00 raw (Raw meaning ungraded) and a graded copy showing a very good to mint I have seen sell as high as $240.00 ” -The House Of Cards

“ FABULOUS VINTAGE FOOTBALL!! I absolutely love this card, most likely due to the team logo. Growing up with the "Big Red" as my local team in St. Louis, I didn't have much to celebrate with them. But then again we didn't have Charlie Trippi running for us in the 70's like they did in '46. (LOL) Actually we had Jim Otis break the old record in the mid-70's, and then should-be-HOFer OJ Anderson broke that mark his rookie season. ” -kents_stuff

“ Team cards are pretty much a waste of a card, everyone is an indistinguishable little dot, which was not helped by the printing methods of the day. That said, I like the oval. ” -revnorb

“ Now that's a team card! ” -jasongerman9

“ Nice team card , I miss team cards. ” -uncaian

“ Pretty sweet card. ” -nubala

“ Vintage team card a real team card not a card with one or two "stars" on the front of a team leaders card. Wish they would make these again. Even when Topps does the Heritage cards now the "team cards" instead of having the team photo like this have just one or two guys in the modern way they do things. ” -captkirk42

Set: 2000 Topps - MVP Promotion (Rate)

Card: #380 Alex Gonzalez

“ Despite being pelted with golden bowls and fish, A-Rod was still able to field the company logo. ” -revnorb

“ A great card from the King of Topps MVP Promotion Cards! These cards are very, very tough to find- it's probably safe to say that many people don't know about them or have never seen them. Only 100 of each are said to exist. ” -Dave Sosidka

“ Ah, the elusive MVP Promotion cards. Still haven't seen an Olerud yet. ” -olerud363

“ I wish they would still honor these 17 years later. You know Topps still has a bunch of these unused redemptions in their inventory. ” -carthage44

“ A few too many things hiding the photo. And I'm not sure why this is numbered as #380. I don't see a number on the card. But maybe I'm just not familiar with this set, or it's just too small for me to see on my screen. ” -kents_stuff

“ This must be a PR card - Pre-Roid. ” -UKboogie

“ It's not a bad card, but the gray border is a little boring. ” -muskie027

“ In my opinion, the stamp ruined a perfectly good card front. The back explains it being a contest card though. ” -IfbBirdsCards

“ Is that the Alex Gonzalez, or the other Alex Gonzalez ” -rmitchell6700

“ What is this guy the MVP of? I don't get it. What if Topps used this for a Rediscover Topps gimmick.!?! Two foil stamps. Captain Kirk's head might explode! ” -switzr1

Set: 2002-03 Pacific Calder (Rate)

Card: #73 Joe Corvo

“ The positive is the basic design. The negative is the overuse of blue and white. ” -Sportzcommish

“ Not a huge fan of Pacific. Too many similar sets ” -mbarlow092

“ I like the overall card design, but what happened to Corvo's head? Looks like a small head Photoshopped onto a normal body. ” -olerud363

“ Glad to see another hockey card come up. Every one helps me learn something new about the sport. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Nice overall card. Pacific? Wow I thought it was something else. Kind of dig the file folder design. ” -captkirk42

“ Not a bad looking card , but not something I would go out of my way to collect , Corvo was a bit of a journeyman played for 5 different N. H. L teams. ” -uncaian

“ I'm not into hockey at all, so tough to come up with something to say. I guess I like the colors and the design. ” -sahal694

“ Maybe it's the bright white with the bright purple, but this looks cool. I don't like the double name thing going on, but overall, a great look. ” -muskie027

“ I 'm OK with the design, although the front is very white given the ice plus the whitewashing. But I'm confused by this being an '02-'03 card. I mean, it shows his '01-'02 stats line, plus career stats, so that's logical. But it talks about him really lighting the lamp in '02-'03 and playing in the 2003 All-Star Game. I guess I'm a purist, but it sounds like this is an '03 off-season card or an '03-'04 card. ” -kents_stuff

“ Really nice card. When done right, hockey can produce some of the nicest looking cards. Well lit, with white background, really makes the player and uniform stand out. This one succeeds. I miss Pacific. ” -switzr1

“ With the Caps for a season, if that. The use of the first crown is clever, the second though, not so much. This Kings jersey logo looks more like a soccer shield. ” -IfbBirdsCards

“ Not that I'm a huge hockey fan, but boy it's a good thing that the team name is on the card, because I don't know that I've ever seen that jersey before. ” -jasongerman9

Set: 2015 Bowman (Rate)

Card: #8 Shin-Soo Choo

“ He should have been a great Mariner... ” -ketchupman36

“ Cool name , nice card too. ” -uncaian

“ I've really grown to hate the Bowman Brand. An endless number of sets all packaged together all using the same design. More parallels than there are actually colours, Some sets being divided between product releases....etc. ” -rmpaq5

“ Some shading and lines do not make a creative look to a card. ” -carthage44

“ I have actually liked the Bowman designs from these last few years. I still don't like their numbering for prospects and pre-prospects with the confusing DPP and DP and CDPP and whatever numbers, OK the C numbers are usually the Chrome version. I always get frustrated in trying to figure out if my Bowman card is a base base or a base Prospects or a base Rookie Prospects. when trying to find them on the database. ” -captkirk42

“ not a baseball collector but i like it, i wish 2015 bowman football used this design instead of what they did ” -Thunderfoot

“ One of my favorite Bowman designs from the past decade or so. I find myself liking Bowman's base more than Topps anymore. I just wish the base sets had a larger veteran checklist. ” -mkaz80

“ I Choo Choo choose you. ” -sahal694

“ Can you say this name 5 times fast, nonstop? Try it!!! ” -Joshua825

“ This card is almost awesome. That's what ruins it for me. Great action shot; awesome name. But.....the card front has a great design but it looks like they forgot to finish it. ” -cnangle

“ Not too bad. I don't believe I've seen one of these before. The white corners are a little weird, but I think I like them. ” -kents_stuff

Set: 1999 Pacific Revolution - Foul Pole (Rate)

Card: #13 Bernie Williams

“ I miss Pacific! ” -trauty

“ Man Pacific had some innovative card designs. Wish other companies nowadays (looking at you Topps) would think outside the box sometimes. ” -rmpaq5

“ Who else thinks Bernie should have received more HOF support? Even though the Yankees teams were otherwise loaded, I don't know if they win as many WS as they did without him. Don't like the Yankees but have never disliked Bernie. ” -Brimose

“ This would be cool if it was actually part of a foul pole but it's just a fabricated net. ” -carthage44

“ Bernie looks to be in a state of con-fusion on the back. ” -sahal694

“ Way too busy for me. The net just adds to the confusion. ” -IfbBirdsCards

“ I'm not sure what I'm seeing here...is this a net relic or just designed to look like a net? ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Another coincidence card? Comments open on Bernie's birthday! Nice. ” -dsorek

“ Neat, first card I've ever seen with its own air conditioner. ” -NJDevils

“ Well, 1999 was a really great year to be a collector, both Football, and Baseball card manufacturers started releasing these beautiful cards. Absolute and Pacific Revolution was two of my favorite Sports Card Issues and 1999 Pacific Revolution was a must have for any collector. I really miss those Pacific brands because they released some very rare cards. I still have one of the Rarest Michael Vick Re Cards ever made. The 2001 Vanguard #02/10! Now as for Berne Williams never was a big fan. just one of those I never got into. I did love this set and I have three of them, ” -The House Of Cards

“ This would have been better for hockey IMO. I don't think of nets when I think of a foul pole, I think of a metal screen. ” -rmitchell6700

“ Huh? What? Here's a thought, Pacific--save some us all some money and make this card 60% of the normal width. Or even better, give us photos that are 40% bigger than these are. ” -kents_stuff

“ It's cool, but a lot of wasted space. ” -muskie027

Set: 1993 Select (Rate)

Card: #255 Pat Kelly

“ I had no idea Select had more of a heritage than a single NASCAR release until I joined the Database. Then I learned it was older than I thought, and produced by Score! It's now been produced by Score, Pinnacle and Panini. I love when heritage brands are kept alive over the years. By the way, great photo! I was so preoccupied talking about the brand I neglected the card itself. A perfect shot captured at the zenith of his jump (see what I did there?) And a pleasing green border, long my favorite color. I suspect Select may have been meant to compete head to head with Stadium Club. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Stealth appearance by Mark McGwire. This card could also use a better scan so it's not as washed out ” -ketchupman36

“ A frustrated karma retaliated by dropping a dwarf on Mark McGwire. ” -revnorb

“ An attractive design, though I'd have switched the greens. The action picture sequence is pure baseball. ” -Sportzcommish

“ Not a big fan of these cards, makes it look off center with the border only on 2 sides. Nice photo though. McGwire sliding in I see. ” -IfbBirdsCards

“ On one card he's turning two double plays that both McGwire and Canseco are trying to break up. That is a lot or Roid Rage to jump over. ” -rmpaq5

“ The levitating Pat Kelly. Or maybe it's the force field around Mark McGwire forcing him into the air. Either way, nice action shot. And the back photo has Canseco. I bet they were taken in the same game. Not bad for an alternate to the flagship Score set. ” -vrooomed

“ Haha Nice shot of McGwire photo bombing. ” -RoyalChief

“ This is a cool card with the photo bomb of McGwire on the front and Canseco on the back. It looks like they were taken during the same game. I wonder who was pitching that induced double play balls that day? ” -Brimose

“ This set design is starting to grow on me. At first the all green didn't sit with me well, but early 1990s were still a pretty simple time, but were in the process of changing the hobby forever. For the front the team name really should be on there team logo optional but is always nice. Back pretty good except I prefer full stats and no picture over one year stats with a nice color picture. Can't tell with the photos but might be the same play with the back being a few seconds before the front. ” -captkirk42

“ Cool action shot, terrible set. ” -carthage44

“ Awesome action shot from an underrated set. Lots of good photography throughout the checklist. ” -mkaz80

“ Back when double plays could be broken up with a slide... ” -rmitchell6700

“ This is a laaaame set. ” -wax_house

“ As a kid I loved this set. As an adult... I still love it. ” -jupiterhill

“ Never liked the odd angles on front and back. ” -NJDevils

“ "That's nice Big Mac, but can your steroids allow you to sit in an invisible air chair while turning two?" ” -sahal694

“ I bought two packs of these in 1993, one of the last items I bought before my 22 year hiatus. I was looking at them the other day and asking myself, do I like these. 24 years later, undecided. The picture on this card is cool though. Pat Kelly in the air with a legend of the game underneath. ” -muskie027

“ More early 90's cards of McGwire and Canseco. Did they make enough of these? Convenient how they were able to combine them on to one card here. ” -kents_stuff

Set: 2013-14 Upper Deck Overtime (Rate)

Card: #76 Michael Latta

“ I've never seen this design before, but I like it! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Should be name overkill. ” -carthage44

“ as a bonus pack card it's ok, but it wouldn't fly as a paid product card ” -mbarlow092

“ LET'S GO CAPS! The season's getting closer. Latta wasn't with us long, now he's with the 'Yotes. ” -IfbBirdsCards

“ CAPS LOVE for the RCotD. 'Nuff said. ” -captkirk42

“ Seems like a lot of wasted space to me. And a head shot should be straight in the camera, not a subsection of the action photo on the front of the card. ” -kents_stuff

“ Can't say that I've ever heard of Upper Deck Overtime, or of Michael Latta. ” -rmitchell6700

“ This would be a great card if the name went where the OVERTIME branding is. Then they just need to get rid of the OVERTIME branding image and add a team logo in the corner. Yes, it would have been great. Instead, it is just, eh. ” -muskie027

Set: 2004 Bowman - Gold (Rate)

Card: #36 Jason Kendall

“ I was on a road trip hitting various major and minor league games back in 1999 and made a stop in Pittsburgh...and was at the game he snapped his ankle. One of the most surreal memories I have. ” -rmpaq5

“ Not bad, not great either. ” -DarkSide830

“ These cards are too thick. ” -carthage44

“ Bowman, with the fake signatures, would look better if that section of the card wasn't "faded" to make the signature stand out. I'm glad they finally did away with it all and dropped the fake autos in recent years. Young players weren't taught cursive in school anyway, and don't know how to write a proper signature, so I don't even want their autograph, real or fake. ” -switzr1

“ I remember buying several blasters of this back in the day. I don't like the gold cards mostly because they are thicker than the base. Not a fan of that. ” -mkaz80

“ Kind of plain, but nice card overall. Back looks great. ” -Doc Floyd

“ The chamfered tab look is eye-catching yet not distracting, and gives some freedom for photo choices (especially well illustrated in this example with the ball above his head). But I am really not a fan of any black border anywhere on the card. It makes it so hard to keep them display worthy with almost any handling whatsoever. It looks like this particular example likewise suffers from that, especially on the right edge. Otherwise I like the design, though. ” -kents_xtras_trd_sell

“ A team logo would have made this a very nice card ” -NJDevils

“ Is it me, or does he look like Colin Farrell? ” -YoRicha

“ Love some of the color parallels! I think I missed this set somehow..... ” -Joshua825

“ Oddly I like the 2000s era of Bowman designs. I can't stand their numbering for the prospects and rookie prospects and prepreprospects with the PP and DP and DCPPPCDs and whatnots that they do. Like this design and even the "gold" variant that we see here. Back is OK as backs go. ” -captkirk42

Set: 2016-17 SMG Ntreev Superstar Black Edition (Rate)

Card: #SBCBK-067-N Ji-Hyuk Ryu

“ Not too bad, a little too much wasted space on the bottom. Why is the team name in standard alphabet while everything else is in Japanese? Looks like he racked up 10 Q-bert signs in the season reported. I wouldn't mind collecting one of these sets. ” -muskie027

“ An absolutely attractive card until one sees the resemblance to Panini on the back, i.e. same picture (just cropped and enlarged). Is SMG a subsidiary of Panini? ” -Sportzcommish

“ I can kind of figure out the stats on the back. ” -carthage44

“ I could do with collecting a few KBO/NPB cards. Among Doosan's most notable players is that bum Hyun-Soo Kim. (whom i used to like, but now realize is just a terrible player) ” -DarkSide830

“ Now that's cool. Something I have not seen. ” -RoyalChief

“ Cool, but why is everything but his name in English? It's like collecting OPC! ” -switzr1

“ "It,s going, it's going it's....Mmmm that stadium dog looks delicious." ” -YoRicha

“ I like the writing going along the side and towards the back of the batting helmet. I found out that the Doosan Bears were founded by a brewery back in 1982, and were known as the OB Bears. That's cool. Excellent card!!! ” -CollectingAfterDeath

“ Nice NBL? (Nippon Baseball League?) card. ” -captkirk42

“ Not much I can read on it, and never heard of the guy, but it still works. The only thing I don't like is what I'm guessing is only one season of stats. Awesome looking card. ” -Doc Floyd

“ I like this design. Good picture too. ” -IfbBirdsCards

Set: 2003 Fleer Tradition - Throwbacks Memorabilia (Rate)

Card: #TB-MA Marcus Allen

“ I still like relics...even for football. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Somewhat boring. ” -muskie027

“ In general this typifies an excellent card with an action photo that is not cluttered with other players, and a design that includes player, team, and card company logo. What I'm not too keen on is the patch. Maybe if it only occupied a slender space as a banner I'd be fine with it. ” -Sportzcommish

“ Nice design, except for all the yellow. ” -olerud363

“ Too bad its not in red. ” -RoyalChief

“ These Game Worn jersey cards should be more valuable than the jersey cards that the players wear for a few hours at an event. ” -carthage44

“ The front of this "relic" card would be better suited as a regular base card. The jersey swatch should be centered. I also find it quite humorous that a black piece of "Throwback" jersey for the Raiders. Now I don't mind the back so much since it serves it purpose for a relic card. I do however think that from day one all relic (jersey, Game Used whatever you want to call them) cards should be serial numbered. IN the early days they rarely did that, even today many relic cards are not serial numbered. ” -captkirk42

“ I like the front of this card, The relic is a focal point, yet it doesn't detract from the player photo. I like the white photo frame, but maybe the name and team should have been printed in black. Apparently Allen is an "NFL legend", but Fleer couldn't even write *one sentence* about him. ” -dilemma19

“ I like it! Great image, simple design... ” -nubala

“ Watching him run over the Redskins in the Super Bowl is one of my best memories from the 80's. ” -rmitchell6700

“ Never was a fan of "Game worn" anything. Too, too gimmicky in my humble opinion. ” -YoRicha
