Set: 2010 Topps Match Attax South Africa World Cup (Rate)

Card: #92 Rene Adler

“ Here we go! I wondered how long it would be before we saw some more Soccer game cards ” -SFC Temple

“ I think I can safely say Attax is the worst set ever made. ” -carthage44

“ Yes it is another soccer gaming card...but unlike most this set has a bit more traditional feel on the front as the lay out of the stats incorporate well into the card design. The back is...well it is a gaming card. ” -rmpaq5

“ The goalkeeper has an attack rating of only 4. Pathetic! ” -dilemma19

“ Oh look a soccer Topps Attax card. Front is interesting. Back hey I thought the had to all look alike since it is a card game (CCG) Maybe for Attax games things are a bit different. ” -captkirk42

“ Yes! Soccer game card! I can't wait to read all the favorable comments about this card. I definitely like it because Herr Adler is the goalkeeper for my favorite Bundesliga team, Hamburger! ” -switzr1

“ To paraphrase Will Rogers, "I've never met a Topps Match Attax I liked." ” -C2Cigars

Set: 2002 Donruss Super Estrellas (Rate)

Card: #40 Mike Sweeney

“ Never seen this one, but I like it. Guess a new card to add to my want list. ” -jupiterhill

“ Good looking set. I would collect these ” -switzr1

“ Pretty nice design wise. Looks more 1990s than 2002 (that's a compliment coming from me). I have no idea what it says but so what ? ” -Billy Kingsley

“ He was a solid player. Killed the White Sox. ” -carthage44

“ I don't think I have any Spanish cards in my collection, but not very excited to add if my only options are like this one. ” -dilemma19

“ I really like this layout. Great action shot with the team logo. Foil a bit hard on the eyes. Back is solid. I prefer more stats and bigger number, but I love narratives ” -SFC Temple

“ OK design. Important stuff can be read, don't like the foil logos but can live with them. Would be nice to see the full team name with this set as it is a Spanish edition.Back is OK but needs full stats not just one year, but *sigh* it is an early 2000s card so 1 year stats are the norm there. ” -captkirk42

“ statistics are incomplete ” -RoundtheDiamond87

Set: 1987 O-Pee-Chee (Rate)

Card: #68 Glenn Hubbard

“ OH Cool an OPC card. Nice "almost" vintage. (in some peoples books it is now vintage) Glad to see it is one of the Originals and not a more recent retro tribute. ” -captkirk42

“ Good player - GREAT set. Love the whiter backs than the Topps counterparts. ” -vrooomed

“ I like this design. Have since the first time I saw one. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Ok maybe I'm partial being from Canada, but the O-Pee-Chee backs always brighter and easier to read than Topps. ” -rmpaq5

“ Awesome. It's 1987, before packs started getting expensive. It's OPC. And it's Glenn Hubbard, whose 1984 Fleer card is my favorite card ever. Can't go wrong with this one. ” -switzr1

“ The OPC branding, and white card stock do wonders for this set for some reason. Turns an otherwise bland Topps set into a pretty decent one. Think it's the wood-grain look that bothers me. ” -Doc Floyd

“ Needs more boa. ” -volbox

Set: 2001 Topps Gold Label Class 1 (Rate)

Card: #110 Tim Hudson

“ Love the Gold Labels. Clean look and the foil on this scan (as with most of them because of the extra shiny stock) don't do it justice. ” -rmpaq5

“ For a Gold Label set this isn't as nice as they usually are. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Very bland. ” -carthage44

“ Another set made worse by foil. Hudson is a guy I know by sight, but I don't like having to flip a card over to know who the player is. And the glow around him makes him look like a dead Jedi. ” -switzr1

“ Looks about like a bootleg, Gold label sure was some ugly stuff most of the time. ” -Doc Floyd

“ Foil lettering that is all I'll say. ” -captkirk42

Set: 1990 CMC (Rate)

Card: #641 Pete Dalena

“ I like the yellow and green borders. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Looks like the team was owned by Molson. The fronts would look much better without the white border. The back is nice except for the oversized PCL logo. Overall, a nice design. The 1989 stat line is the sum total of his major league career. ” -C2Cigars

“ Looks like he just got slamming a Molson Canadian ” -SFC Temple

“ Why do so many prospect cards seem to depict 30 year-old non-prospects? ” -DarkSide830

“ I have a ton of these cards, but dislike sorting them due to the tiny card numbers hiding down in the copyright line. I believe this is now the last remaining MLB-affiliated minor league team in Canada :( ” -dilemma19

“ Nice and simple Minor League Card. Wish the card makers would go back to this type of thing. I don't need all the foil and shinny surfaces on pristine cardboard. I prefer the simple "flat" non-shine on raw unbleached cardboard. OK the occasional bleached cardboard is fine also. ” -captkirk42

“ Go White Sox minor league teams!!! ” -carthage44

“ I recognize this from my youth. Not sure what ever happened to these minor league cards. Wonder if I still have them.I actually like the design. Nice and colorful. ” -Mitch

“ Now that is one colourful card. ” -rmpaq5

“ Certainly colorful, not bad though, especially for 1990. ” -Doc Floyd

Set: 1996 Select (Rate)

Card: #90 Andre Coleman

“ I really like the front but the back does not work for me at all. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ It's nice, but would be awesome if the card surface itself was pebbled like a football. I like the "video wall" image on the back, though it results in the stats and biographical information being illegibly small. ” -dilemma19

“ Tough to read front with no team name or logo. I personally don't like the horizontal back/number because it makes it tougher to sort. Why is the back photo cubed? ” -SFC Temple

“ It's OK, but something about that back just ruins it for me. ” -Doc Floyd

“ Kind of like this design. Can't read a thing on the front except "Select 96" and part of "Coleman". Better legible text would be nice team name, logo and player position Please. Back I like the look but can't read whatever is on the right, his bio? ” -captkirk42

“ Pinnacle did a great job with this set. ” -carthage44

Set: 2006 Topps Turkey Red (Rate)

Card: #233 D.J. Williams

“ Nice scan. I like this set, I also like the texture of the cards. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I like the narrative. I do miss the trivia about the players that Topps used to do many moons ago. ” -SFC Temple

“ This set is ugly and bland, but I like it anyways. Stats instead of a write-up would have improved it, the back anyways. But figure they were trying to stick to that "vintage" theme. ” -Doc Floyd

“ These cards are nice. ” -dilemma19

“ I like the Turkey Red retro sets, however it is very hard to tell some of the years apart. Nowdays with all the color variants this could be the base version or gray version of any year. Normally for sets I prefer team names and logos on the front, but with retro sets I prefer them to be as faithful to the original as possible. ” -captkirk42

“ The Turkey Red feel nice. ” -carthage44

“ It's alright, I guess. I think I like this better as a baseball design though. ” -switzr1

Set: 1998 Decipher Star Wars CCG: Special Edition Limited Dark Side (Rate)

Card: #NNO18 Chyler

“ Normally, I'm a supporter of the TGCs; I like the art and a lot of the storylines. This here reminds me of the cork coasters with the little brass knob on one side to pull it in and out of it's holder. You know, the ones at Gramma and Grampa's. ” -SFC Temple

“ I don't remember this character. I don't mind some of the gaming cards, if they have a large photo. Stuff like this though, zero interest, even if it's wrestling. ” -switzr1

“ Meh. For a card that's supposed to promote or tie into the movie, they could have done better with the image. ” -dilemma19

“ Love some SW cards, but the CCG stuff not so much. No idea what the deal is with the game, and never bothered to try to learn. Somewhere I have a box of these I got dirt cheap back then, can't say if it all even got opened. ” -Doc Floyd

“ Terrible non-action shot. ” -carthage44

“ As CCG cards and games go this is OK. The design for the back though doesn't say "Star Wars" to me. ” -captkirk42

Set: 2013 Topps WWE Dog Tags Signature Series (Rate)

Card: #8 Christian

“ The ladder matches he, Edge, The Hardy Boyz, and the Dudley's put on were absolutely epic! ” -rmpaq5

“ When I was in school wrestling was the most popular sport among my friends. I never got into it...but I also never saw the "Divas" at the time, or else that might have been different (lol) ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Christian was a very underrated wrestler who retired earlier in the year. He never received his due in WWE as a singles wrestler. A funny story about Christian...Vince McMahon found him to be so ugly, that at one point McMahon wanted Christian's face to have a big blue dot over it when he appeared on television in interviews and matches. For the card, I've seen far worse. ” -ShoTime

“ Not a bad card , one of my favorite WWE wrestlers & of course Canadian. ” -uncaian

“ NOT big into wrastlin'. Nice looking card for "signature" card insert set. ” -captkirk42

“ Pretty good design. No idea who he is though. ” -Doc Floyd

“ I'm cool and you know it! ” -carthage44

“ Pele, Madonna, Prince, Ronaldo, Ali, Cher. I may have forgotten a couple of people from the list of "those identifiable by a single name", but I'm quite certain 'Christian' does not belong in said company. The card's decent, but looks like it belongs in 1993, not 2013. ” -dilemma19

“ No, I'm not going to pull your finger. ” -NJDevils

Set: 2000 Topps Gold Label Class 3 (Rate)

Card: #92 Rick Asadoorian

“ This action shot of him approaching third really looks staged. ” -rmpaq5

“ I loved the gold label concept/set. The cards look so good in person, like every one is a refractor. It probably doesn't hurt that I pulled a 1/1 from a single pack purchase of the NBA set, my first 1/1. . ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Pretty solid all-around. ” -carthage44

“ I don't know something about this card looks awkward. Not a very fitting design for something called "Gold Label", more like "Gold Lame"., ” -Doc Floyd

“ A very different card and I I like it a lot. ” -NJdevils

“ The Gold Label with its 3 classes is one of the most confusing sets I had seen when I got back into the hobby around 2003 or 4 or whenever it was I was getting back into the hobby. The design is OK but lacking and the name hard to read a bit. Foil lettering of course "gold label" what else? Back nice look but lacking info. ” -captkirk42

“ Cool looking card but eventually a headache with all the different levels and telling them apart. Other than PC, passing on these! ” -Joshua825

“ I really liked Gold Label hockey. I just wish they didn't create the 1/1's for each color and class - totally unnecessary. Thick stock, embossed cards, clean designs, but too many parallels. ” -suomibear8
