Set: 1997 Score Premium Stock (Rate)

Card: #137 Leo Gomez

“ Not a bad card, especially from Score. Is there a printing problem with the L in his name? I like the back of the card, full of text and stats. About the only change I would make would have been proper capitalization, I don't care for all-lower case lettering. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I like to call this era of Score's logo: "The Awkward Teenage Years" ” -Howintensive

“ Whoever designed this card must have had a really awesome beret. ” -revnorb

“ Classic Cubs. ” -jlaz10

“ Too bad that huge logo is on the front of this card. The back is very busy. ” -yokonashiwa

“ His chin is continued on #138. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ Rounding third and headed for an all-star career in Japan.... ” -DaClyde

“ PS... I farted and it smells real bad back at third base.... on behalf of the team, I appologise "I don't know." What's on second btw... ” -Dixxy

“ Premium Stock - when the other 3 versions wasn't good enough.... ” -vrooomed

Set: 1994-95 Hoops (Rate)

Card: #342 Brad Lohaus

“ One of my favorite sets. Also one of the first I ever did a box of, although I can't recall anymore if it was series 1 or 2. (This card is from Series 2). One of the things I liked about this set was that it included the jersey number in the stats. I've always been fascinated by numbers. On the cards where it's not really visible, it was a nice touch, especially for me as I was getting this set when I was first discovering the NBA, and didn't know much yet at the time. The real cards are not as washed out as most of the scans posted are. And, in case you are wondering, yes, he DOES have teeth :) He was using a black mouth guard. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ About as good as they'll be this year. ” -volbox

“ The current Heat duds are nice, but if they modernized this set maybe it would draw attention away from no more LeBron. ” -jlaz10

“ Gotta love big white centers! ” -carthage44

“ i saw him in a movie last night!! Big Fish!!! ” -Dixxy

Set: 1994 Fleer (Rate)

Card: #229 Mike Gallego

“ Interesting design. I've never seen it before. I like how the name wraps around the team logo. The name appears to be done in foil, too. This design was not used in the NBA, which is unusual for the time, most of the companies tried to create an overall theme for each year. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Good job of camouflaging the stats on the back. ” -NJdevils

“ Yankees pinstripes. 'Nuf said. ” -jlaz10

“ He resembles a dictator of some sort. ” -revnorb

“ Leggo my Eggo, Gallego! ” -DanD

Set: 1986 Donruss (Rate)

Card: #510 Steve Engel

“ I don't know why, but I like this set. ” -jupiterhill

“ Donruss really didn't a whole lot of redesigning the backs of the cards, did they? The striping is kind of cool on the front of this card. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ That's a man's mustache. ” -Howintensive

“ If you blinked, you missed this guy's MLB career. ” -PlayerPCCollector

“ If this card was any more 80's looking, it'd have foot-tall bangs and a Rubik's Cube. ” -revnorb

“ Hard to find an 80's major leaguer with only three cards ” -volbox

Set: 1992 Pacific Seaver (Rate)

Card: #93 Tom Seaver (Top 10 All-Time)

“ I somehow ended up with several 9-pocket pages of cards from this set years and years ago. so long that I don't remember when or how, but they would have been fairly new cards at the time. I need to locate them and add them to my collection on the Database. Scan is very washed out- it looks like you're looking through fog to see it. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Are my stirrups twisted? ” -Markd

“ This card looks washed out to me. The colors are just too like especially with the blurred fans in the back ground. I did enjoy watching Tom growing up but I prefer him in a Reds uniform. ” -koloth42

“ I'm amazed Pacific found a market for 100+ card sets of just one player. Of course, the Nolan Ryan set ended up being almost 250 cards. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ Please let me throw a strike. I really need a strike right now. Amen. ” -yokonashiwa

Set: 2000 Sports Illustrated for Kids (Rate)

Card: #880 Paul Kariya

“ I used to get this magazine just to get the cards. I had no idea it was still being published until I joined the Database, the last time I saw it on the store shelves was likely the last time I got any, also in 2000. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Of all the SI for Kids designs I've seen, these I like the least. I wish they were made with better card stock, and wish SI would release a complete set each year of all the cards, I would buy them. ” -jupiterhill

“ Cooperalls!!! 'Nuff said. ” -Gunny

“ Interesting concept. I don't think I've ever seen a throwback card quite like this. ” -koloth42

“ Perfect card for kids. Always liked the SI Kids cards, and now that I have a son who is an SI Kids subscriber, I appreciate them even more. ” -vrooomed

“ In each issue of Sports Illustrated for kids, there would be a page of 9 perforated cards. Those were the coolest. I have over 400 of the SI Kids cards from when I was a kid. So many memories... ” -Howintensive

“ A very good player and very famous in Sweden for two reasons. One is becaus he missed the last penelty in the 1994 olympics and the secend is that he started his NHL career at the same time as Peter Forsberg. Ended his NHL career whit an exactly one point per game avarage. ” -Magnus77

“ This isn't a half bad design. Maybe SI needs to show Topps how it's done, they're sort of on a roll. ” -revnorb

“ Nice card. ” -uncaian

“ That's cool!! Go Sports Illustrated. ” -Dixxy

Set: 1996 Finest - Refractors (Rate)

Card: #B339 Mark Clark

“ I have some of the base 1996 Finest cards (non-refractors) that I can't find on the Database. Very confusing listing. Love refractor technology, my all time favorite parallel design. This scan doesn't look much like a refractor, probably my lack of experience with the baseball version and the cover being on it. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ "...and maybe, if you're lucky, we'll finish off this card of graphic Photoshop indulgence with a small photo of a ball player somewhere!" ” -revnorb

“ I don't peel the plastic off either. ” -yokonashiwa

“ I wouldn't say this card was a "Finest Addition"to any collection.Ugly design. ” -uncaian

“ I remember when the Cubs threw him out against the Braves in 1998. It was the worst bombing involving Mark Clark since Monte Cassino. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ Park, Lark, Shark, Dark, Bark... ” -SaveDaKid

“ I didn't like those coatings you could remove. Everyone had their opinions on whether or not it should be removed, and how would affect it's grade. ” -suomibear8

Set: 2002 Topps UK Attack of the Clones (Rate)

Card: #69 A Noble Jedi Knows No Fear

“ I had no idea the British versions were so different until Dixxy showed me about a week ago. Something else to chase! This was my favorite of the Prequals, and I've seen it well into the three digits. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ This card made me remember those early Star Wars sets, from 1978-ish. I had forgotten all about them til now. Those were maybe kind of cool. This one looks modern and bland. Bring back color!!! ” -revnorb

“ Oh my God YES!!!! Something I can be proud of as a cotd!!!!! I found out about this set by accident as I was starting to expand my star wars co?lection. I merely figured it was the regular set when I purchased some cards off ebay. Since that realisation I have successfully finished collecting the whole set with all the chase cards through the same seller. Probably my first star wars build. The other version is on its way in the mail too. These cards are like pokemon to me. Gotta catch em all! ” -Dixxy

“ Why would a Jedi waste levels on Noble? ” -UNC_Samurai

“ Never seen Star Wars. Yep, that's right I have never seen ANY of the Star Wars and I am proud of it! ” -carthage44

Set: 2002 Decipher Lord of the Rings CCG: The Two Towers (Rate)

Card: #4R231 Eastern Emyn Muil

“ I don't understand what the Maneuver is telling you to do, and frankly, not sure I want to! (lol) ” -Billy Kingsley


“ I guess they couldn't come up with suitable conditions for a "Frodo's mangy hair" card ” -jackal726

“ Did Decipher change its name when I wasn't looking? ” -UNC_Samurai

“ Go not to the Elves for counsel, for they will say both no and yes. - Frodo Baggins ” -grim25

Set: 1999-00 Topps Gold Label Class 1 (Rate)

Card: #93 Andre Miller

“ Loved this set when it came out and still do. It was overly complicated, though. Three levels of base cards, then red and black label parallels. I pulled my first 1 of 1 from this set, from a single pack purchase. The backs were the exact same except the level, which is kind of a let down. (Except, of course, the numbered parallels). Andre Miller is still going strong, a key reserve on the Wizards' second team. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Is it me or is the woman in the back to the left of the G in Gold Label checking out Andre's posterior? ” -flcardtrader

“ I like the Mini-Miller. ” -NJdevils

“ Love the Gold Label design, but hate the multiple class parallels. ” -suomibear8

“ "I call him...Mini-Me!" ” -revnorb

“ Little Miller's gonna squash giant miller! He looks ticked!! That being said... Topps! What were you thinking with this design?? We Get It! This card is Andre Miller! We don't need the 1/4 space waste for the third picture to remind us! Back is nice though ” -Dixxy

“ Wow, who was in charge here? terrible...Love the effort he's giving on the layup...and such a fake game experience... ” -SaveDaKid

“ That poor little Andre Miller is going to get beaten by that giant Andre Miller. This is just a dumb front look. ” -yokonashiwa
