Set: 2008 Rittenhouse Iron Man (Rate)

Card: #7 Christine Everhart

“ Nice card,didn't know there was a card company called Rittenhouse. ” -uncaian

“ The Avengers movie series has quickly become one of my favorites. So much so that I actually went to see the sequel in the theater earlier this year, the first time I've seen a movie on the big screen since 2008. The Iron Man movies were some of the weaker efforts in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, though not the worst. Even so, I've seen them multiple times already. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Thanks to my sons love of the Superheroes, I discovered Ironman was created the same year as I was born...yep, now my favorite Superhero! ” -bkklaos

“ Superhero movies are becoming a major overkill. ” -carthage44

“ Nice Non-Sport. ” -captkirk42

“ This may be the first COTD of a female since those Brats cards. I don't remember this character in this movie. I guess I would if I had collected the cards! ” -switzr1

“ Not a bad card for non sport, I wonder if it is the design or the pic? ” -hawksforever

Set: 1993 Bon Air Fire Engines (Rate)

Card: #65 1992 Spartan Gladiator Saulsburg Rescue Pumpe

“ This is so ridiculous I gotta like it! ” -switzr1

“ *blink* *blink* They'll make cards for anything won't they? ” -Mike67

“ I need that fire engines autograph ” -Young Kilo

“ I love this set. It came out when I was 8 years old, what 8 year old doesn't love fire trucks? I don't happen to have this card. Whoever posted the checklist though got it wrong, the set is actually 500 cards. It is the largest automotive themed set ever made, including auto racing, where the largest set is only 340 cards. (not counting insets/parallels/promos) ” -Billy Kingsley

“ This is going to be a little long - sorry. I know there will be a few "The early 90s, a card for Everything" comments, but I can assure you that there were fire (truck/man) sets a lot earlier than that. In the early 80s, I worked for a baseball card shop and the owner was a big time photographer. He had a hand in putting together a fire truck set (I think it had firemen as well) that I remember helping him sort into sets. That was probably around 1982 or 1983. ” -vrooomed

“ I have all the respect in the world for firemen, but damn I wish I had a job where I get paid when I'm sleeping (albeit always mindful that when the alarm sounds, it's time to earn that pay)! ” -bkklaos

“ COOL !! ” -uncaian

“ Everyone likes fire trucks! ” -carthage44

“ Ya know, when I click the drop-down menu and select "Write One", it's like getting a Christmas gift from a distant relative. Sure, it's shaped like a card, but it could really be anything. Sometimes, it's 1960s Topps baseball. And sometimes, it's this. ” -wax_house

“ Fire Trucks. When I first heard about one of these sets at first I thought it kind of odd. Then I remembered earlier sets of cars from the 1950s through the 70s and it wasn't so odd. ” -captkirk42

“ too cool ” -jackal726

“ Opening Day pitcher for the 1993 Fire Engines. ” -jlaz10

“ A copycat from the police, these were the thing for fire departments to have. Some departments actually used these for contest and kids could win a price. For volunteer deparments, the idea was to make the kids come to the station to get the last card in the set, where usually a well meaning member would try to sell mom/dad on joining. ” -engine614

“ Nice 1992 Spartan Gladiator Saulsburg Rescue Pumper RC....or is it an XRC? ” -flcardtrader

Set: 2006-07 O-Pee-Chee (Rate)

Card: #67 Maxim Afinogenov

“ Is O-Pee-Chee taking over the site??? ” -carthage44

“ Love this design. Nice and simple. Back design is nice also. Add another set to my ever growing never ending "to build" list. Maybe, I need to get realistic for some collecting goals. ” -captkirk42

“ The buffaslug! Not a great logo for a pro team. ” -duaned99

“ Either this is the 3rd card from this set recently, or OPC doesn't alter their design much from one year to the next. I don't like his uniform. ” -switzr1

“ The Buffa-slug was one of the worst logos in the NHL, and the Sabres now have one of the best with their original roundel. ” -jlaz10

“ This guy was really really good. And then poof. Gone. ” -Howintensive

Set: 2006 Press Pass - Autographs Gold (Rate)

Card: #27 Orien Harris

“ I am very sad that Press Pass folded as I enjoyed their pre-season football sets. ” -carthage44

“ As someone that PCs cards from a university, I am a fan of sets like this. ” -jackal726

“ Nice looking card for Press Pass. I like on card autos but don't like college uniforms for Professional Players which Press Pass mostly is since Topps has the NFL licenses. ” -captkirk42

“ The 'Canes should go back to a classic number font for starters. Ultimately a conservative striping method would better their look as well. ” -jlaz10

Set: 1999-00 Upper Deck Swedish Hockey League (Rate)

Card: #208 David Ytfeldt

“ Not a bad set,it's fun to pick out the players who "made it" to the NHL,I don't think this fellow did. ” -uncaian

“ That background is just hideous! ” -carthage44

“ I've got a new winner for "Worst Card Design, Ever". ” -C2Cigars

“ Is at background moving? Looks like something from Max Headroom on Network 23. ” -koloth42

“ Ouch. This one actually hurts to look at. Maybe the worst card design I have ever seen. ” -switzr1

“ I've looked at this 4 or 5 times trying to find something nice to say about it. I was unsuccessful. ” -NJdevils

“ Ouch Upper Deck WHAT DID YOU DO HERE? UGH Hate this dashed line design, the ghost-like look on the back is much better. They should have either not used a border at all or made it very thin along the edges. ” -captkirk42

Set: 1996 IMT Inc Doodlewonkers (Rate)

Card: #9 Facts: The Washington

“ The reason your friends don't know this "fact"? It's completely made up. No truth to this at all. ” -switzr1

“ That's actually kind of creepy! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Fact:Trees die for no reason,because of sets like these !!!! ” -uncaian

“ Well... uh....I have nothing ” -SFC Temple

“ If true, I certainly didn't know that...will be going up it next month as a matter of fact and I'll ask! Never heard of the set, but I like it! ” -bkklaos

“ This set is also a Fact Your Friends Don't Know. ” -wax_house

“ Wow Loopy Non-Sport entry. I actually kind of like it. ” -captkirk42

“ I like the front, not so much the back. Interesting cards to say the least. ” -jupiterhill

“ I wonder if that's still true. I'd think it would sink less (per year) as it sank more. ” -jackal726

“ I am speechless. ” -carthage44

Set: 1993 Fleer/ProCards South Atlantic League All-Stars (Rate)

Card: #36 Miguel Correa

“ Minus the cheesy old-timey graphic on the back, this is a solid card design-wise. Not sure about card stock. Fleer had begun to be pretty flimsy in the early 90s, but the 1993 MLB Fleer product was on better stock than the previous 3 years. If this was on the same stock, it was good. ” -vrooomed

“ Nice Minor League card. Sadly typical 1990s back design and if I recall the "typing" paper thin card stock that was popular then. ” -captkirk42

“ Gotta love minor league cards! ” -carthage44

“ Bit dark due to the background but at least it is a Minor League card. ” -koloth42

Set: 1966-67 Topps (Rate)

Card: #65 Charlie Hodge / Gump Worsley

“ This card is just weird. Maybe hockey fans love it, but it doesn't really do anything for me. Too much going on. Looks like a design from 1996, not 1966. ” -switzr1

“ WOODY!!! ” -carthage44

“ This is one my favourite sets,that I'm slowly collecting.Charlie & Gump are one of the best goalie duos,to ever put on the pads. ” -uncaian

“ Cool card. Reminiscent of 1955 Bowman Baseball with the wooden TV set design. ” -captkirk42

“ Love the TV sets. ” -wax_house

Set: 1993 Fleer (Rate)

Card: #315 Jerry Rice

“ Somehow, the huge last name just seems a bit too epic for what appears to be a shot of a player at practice. Also, that was a fumble. ” -revnorb

“ Nice and clean looking action card. The grey makes it look a bit dull though. ” -maestro

“ What's not to like about any Jerry Rice card...LEGEND! ” -bkklaos

“ Transparent lettering on the front is nice. For early 90's, not bad. ” -carthage44

“ I love the front font idea. It's legible, but doesn't take from the photo at all. ” -wax_house

“ An abbreviated set. Only the last name on the front. Only an abbreviated position on the front, nothing on the back. Only an abbreviated team name, no mention of San Francisco, front or back. Did they take the KISS principle a little too far? I like simplicity, but really don't care for the transparent, embossed last name on the front. ” -C2Cigars

“ Finally, a COTD day that I actually have in my collection! Never liked this set though. Needs first names. This is obviously Jerry Rice. Not all players are so obvious though. ” -switzr1

Set: 1992-93 Ultra (Rate)

Card: #376 Peter Ahola

“ I've always liked the 1992-93 Ultra design. It looks good no matter what sport it's showing. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Despite not having a write up on the back,I do like this set.Ahola didn't last long in the NHL but he belonged to 4 different teams. ” -uncaian

“ Another case of nice looking front, nice overall design but terrible back stats. ” -captkirk42

“ Ahola-ta blah! ” -carthage44

“ One of my favorite sets. Three different photos, simple front design. Fun stuff. ” -wax_house

“ I liked this Ultra set in all four sports. Better than the similar sets the next year, which had foil player names. ” -switzr1
