Random Card of the Day

Sunday, April 24, 2016

Set: 1995-96 Hoops (Rate)

Card: #27 Tyrone Hill

“ This set kind of falls into the "So bad, I've grown to like it" category. And could the NBA uniforms have been any more hideous in this era? ” -switzr1

“ I love that the card back gives you the players college and pro stats. The more the better. ” -carthage44

“ Whoops, we forgot about the name and logo, let's just slap it on sideways. ” -NJDevils

“ OK design but not great. The name plate/flag should be horizontal not vertical reading. Other than that the front is fine. Back OK but don't like the font for player name it is soooo small compared to the player position in the background. I thought it was his name at first until I read "Forward" (looked a bit like "Howard" at first, but this guys name is "Hill") ” -captkirk42

“ Although the set design is not great, I have a lot of good memories of the set so I like it more than I would based on design alone. My first ever NBA insert came out of a pack of this set, or at least the first one I was sure was an insert, when I first began collecting the NBA. The scan is not good and needs to be replaced- those whitish lines on it are NOT on the card. The pink likes you can barely see on the back ARE on it but the scan is so washed out that you can't hardly see them. ” -Billy Kingsley

Set: 1993 Conlon Collection TSN (Rate)

Card: #956 Alex Carrasquel

“ I remember as a kid I thought I really had something with these Conlon cards. I mean, come on their sooo old! "Must be worth at least...50 bucks or so"!! is what I would think. Oh the good ol' days. ” -RoyalChief

“ An interesting story. ” -DarkSide830

“ I'm confused by the first card. Is this his first card ever printed? ” -carthage44

“ "First Card"....except for his 1967 Topps Venezuelan card (if it is the same guy) ” -NJdevils

“ NOT his First Card. 1967 Topps Venezuelan #176 was his first card. Never cared for any Conlon Collection cards. I especially don't care for cards of dead, retired, inactive players. ” -C2Cigars

“ I really like the Conlon cards. Interesting that he's the first South American to play regularly. ” -joshthurman

“ This man only has 2 cards on here, what are the odds? Great to see these players from the first half of the century. ” -Kaline6

Set: 1981-82 O-Pee-Chee (Rate)

Card: #197 Steve Shutt

“ Goals is buts in French? Learn something new every day here! (Despite the fact that I took French in school...) By the way, one of my goals is to eliminate some of my "buts" so I can fit into the jerseys I bought in the 1990s. I hope that crude joke doesn't make you gag(nants). OK, I'll stop now! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I said it before, I'll say it again. Vintage Topps (or OPC), is good. I do like that "game winning goals" tranlates to "buts gagnants". Matter of fact, there's more "buts" on this card, than you'd find in a Walmart parking lot. ” -Kaline6

“ The quiet Canadien ,one of the best there ever was . I really like this set. ” -uncaian

“ Love pre-junk years 80s that is almost vintage, well for some it is technically vintage. Nice team leaders card, except they really should have shown a couple of the other guys it almost looks like an odd one player card. ” -captkirk42

“ Even in the hyper-offensive early 80s, to have 8 players score 20+ goals seems very impressive. Somehow Lafleur was the only Hab with more than 1 point per game... ” -dilemma19

“ Well now how can you not love this? ” -wax_house

“ The more stats the better. Nice work O-Pee-Chee. ” -carthage44

“ For some reason a goal being called a "but" made me laugh a little. ” -RoyalChief

Set: 1991-92 Pro Set French (Rate)

Card: #489 Brian Bradley

“ Plenty of color in this set, but overprinting, cheap card stock and hundreds of errors doomed Brian Bradley and his set-mates to commons bins. If you've got a good magnifying glass, you can even look below the card number to learn what position he plays! ” -dilemma19

“ Pro Set are THE most underrated sets ever produced. Great pictures. Great color. Great stats. All the players plus. Except they were vastly over-produced thus making them close to worthless. ” -cjjt

“ It's a likeable enough design. But unfortunately after ProSet printed a billion cards in English they decided, "Hey, let's print another billion in French." Talk about a devalued product. ” -C2Cigars

“ The best jersey in sports, 44! ” -carthage44

“ Nice Pro Set. Back in the day (early 90s) I was a Pro Set Head then during my hiatus of the late 90s early 2000s I grew tired of them, then sometime around 2010 or so started liking them again. Front is nice player's position would have been great, rest is adequate. Back is OK Yep its the French version. Would be nice if the front reflected the fact that it was the French release. ” -captkirk42

“ I liked this set , but Pro Set never recovered from their first infamous set . Bradley was a great player who had a fairly long & productive career. ” -uncaian

“ He was a great player. I just learned that he played for several different teams. ” -Silasw

Set: 1992 Triple Play (Rate)

Card: #232 Mike LaValliere

“ I liked these when they were first issued. They were cheap, had different photography and seemed a little more fun than the regular Donruss set. A surprising number of players did not have cards in this set, like Dave Winfield, Dave Henderson, Roger Clemens, Greg Maddux, Nolan Ryan or Roberto Kelly. ” -DaClyde

“ Ah the early 90s...when catchers looked like beer-league softball players. ” -dilemma19

“ The "read the answer in the mirror" on the back, always makes me laugh. ” -carthage44

“ The old 90s Triple Play cards are growing on me at first I hated Hated HATED them. Now like most of the junk years stuff I tolerate them and might even start to pursue the set. ” -captkirk42

“ I didn't know that's how batting average was calculated. OK, I guessed it was something similar but I have no real knowledge of baseball, other than what I've gleamed off the Database, the card blogs, and SportsCenter. ” -Billy Kingsley

Set: 1970 Cleveland Indians Picture Pack (Rate)

Card: #NNO Ray Fosse

“ It seems like every team back in the day had that "C" logo. ” -carthage44

“ I don't mind these picture sets, but for an item without stats, position or numbering, the picture isn't all that good. ” -dilemma19

“ Cool vintage photo. Technically memorabilia not a "card". ” -captkirk42

“ That name is so familiar. At one time I think I knew something about this guy. Love the Chief Wahoo on the sleeve! ” -RoyalChief

“ Good player from the 70's. Off to a fine career, then meets with Pete Rose at home plate in the All Star game. Not quite the same after. ” -Kaline6

Set: 1995-96 Hoops - Slamland (Rate)

Card: #SL16 Donyell Marshall

“ These cards are great (All 1995-96 is great in my opinion) but they do have a tendency for the foil to dissolve, which looks nasty. No other cards in the set have that problem, only this insert. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I want to know what that tattoo of that person on his leg is. Looks terrible. ” -carthage44

“ Card too busy. Looks like they were trying to copy Upper Decks "Fun Pack" baseball design slightly. Good thing it is an insert and not a base card. ” -captkirk42

“ Slamland....so here he is posting up. ” -wax_house

“ It feels like this card came out of a Disney animation studio. Neither informative, nor flashy, nor legible. Hope they didn't print very many... ” -dilemma19

Set: 2015 Choice Tri-City ValleyCats (Rate)

Card: #02 Richard Gonzalez

“ The baseball is as big as his head! ” -switzr1

“ I am a huge fan of MiLB cards. However, copying the design of an old Topps set is not cool. At least the back is unique and well-done. ” -vrooomed

“ Fooled me for the first split-second I thought it was some custom jobber. Nice Minor League card. Front Love the classic '74 style vintage. Don't like the #11 (Jersey number?) on front should be on back. Back OK not great, but card number needs to be more clearly identified. ” -captkirk42

“ Minor league cards are cool, period! ” -carthage44

“ Reminds me a little of 1974 Topps. ” -CluelessJoe

“ This looks like it was made by a high schooler in graphic design class. I will admit, the jersey number is a nice addition to the '74 format. Lastly, should Richard be concerned about the beach ball size ball sitting on his left shoulder? ” -flcardtrader

“ Nice. Kind of reminiscence of I think '74 Topps...or around there. I like it! ” -RoyalChief

Set: 1981 Topps (Rate)

Card: #468 Ottis Anderson / Pat Tilley / Ken Stone / Curtis Greer / Steve Neils

“ Old Topps cards, I like. Crooked printing on back and all. ” -Kaline6

“ I miss team cards. I always enjoyed getting one. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Ah, the old poorly centered 1981s. You would that by the 80s, Topps would have known how to center the cards ” -NJdevils

“ Two in a row for me. Love the classic football cards. Poor St. Louis, they can't seem to keep a team. ” -carthage44

“ I was just entering as a freshman at the University of Washington when this season kicked off...besides no money for cards, I had other things on my mind! I did graduate...on the six year plan! I need to go back and complete some of these sets from this era, as lots of football memories! ” -bkklaos

“ WE WANT LOGO'S!!!! Man that irks me. ” -RoyalChief

“ I love this card, but I'm sure no company would do a team checklist like this today. Hobby is too obsessed with QBs now. This Cardinals team finished 5-11, by the way. ” -switzr1

“ I love early 1980s cards almost as much as vintage cards. In some people's minds the 1980s are now vintage. Anyway I do like this cards the team leaders pictures on front and a team checklist on back. I just don't like that they were not consistent with the type of photos for each player, some of them are head shots other action shots ” -captkirk42

Set: 2005 SAGE HIT - Jerseys (Rate)

Card: #JA J.J. Arrington

“ Yikes! Sage really was hit or miss with their sets, especially their HIT sets. This would be a miss for me. ” -jupiterhill

“ Great scan. Pretty good design for Sage, their designs are not usually this nice in my opinion. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Weird swatch shape. Don't get why his first name looks so odd on the front. ” -DarkSide830

“ I just can't quite get into HIT. I like the idea, but I guess I like to know on the card at least who drafted them. But, then again that info may not be available yet. ” -RoyalChief

“ Sage Strikes again. So many "Strikes" here: college team from a pro player. Back says it is jersey I'm guessing it is ALL WHITE? Is that the jersey in that white six-sided Vertical polygon? And people wonder why I don't like Sage products. ” -captkirk42

“ Much like my stereotype of Dixxy for non-sport cards, I have labeled carthage44 for the Sage Hit sets...sorry, I know your horizons are broader too! I'm a Washington Husky, so you can guess how I feel about this card! ” -bkklaos

“ Any time I see SAGE HIT cards at the store, I wonder, "Who actually buys these?" ” -wax_house

“ The color combination is difficult on my colorblind eyes. Looks like i.i. Arrington. Good photo though. I wish Sage still had NCAA license for logos. ” -switzr1

“ Always love cards that I have added. ” -carthage44

“ Good picture but not a great design. ” -cjjt

“ SMH...Sage is still in business. ” -UKboogie
