Random Card of the Day

Tuesday, May 26, 2015

Set: 2010 Topps UFC (Rate)

Card: #138 Jacob Volkmann

“ I miss the early days of UFC. Gracie, Severn, Shamrock. Before they even had weight classes. Even a few years ago with St. Pierre, Silva and Clay Guida. It's kind of lost it's luster for me as of late. ” -Id8jlb8666

“ Not into boxing or MMA but I really think this card needs the 1960s Batman Fighting effects. The first thing I thought when I saw this was **BAM** **POW!*** ” -captkirk42

“ Jacob was 6-4 in the UFC, but his losses were all more exciting than his wins. ” -jackal726

“ I'm sure there are better pics than this out there to showcase this sport ” -SFC Temple

“ UFC killed Boxing. ” -carthage44

Set: 1996-97 Zenith (Rate)

Card: #133 Ethan Moreau

“ Thick cards. Not a terrible design. ” -vrooomed

“ Nice simple design. I like it, BUT where are the stats? Sigh I miss the olden days when the stats on the back were the entire career (or most of it for long time vets) ” -captkirk42

“ GO HAWKS!!! ” -carthage44

“ The non-rookie cards from this set split home and road stats on the back. It makes determining a goalie's sv% and GAA impossible. ” -wax_house

“ Known more for his time in Edmonton great guy on & off the ice,later career hampered by injuries. This card is hampered by Blah. ” -uncaian

“ I like the back a LOT more than I like the front. As a general rule (there are exceptions) I prefer a natural background of a hockey rink to a fake background of foil. ” -switzr1

“ He looks like aliens beamed him up to their ship in the middle of a game. "STAY BACK, CREATURE!" ” -revnorb

“ Nice card, great team. I don't have this one yet though. What can you say... 10/10. ” -Duke

“ The always classic Blackhawks sweater. ” -jlaz10

Set: 2000 Upper Deck Legends (Rate)

Card: #18 Ernie Banks

“ Nice that we can have some licensed, newer, alternative cards of HOFers to add to the collection, without breaking the bank. I'm sure this is a foil-fest, and that's why a scan makes it look so bad. And I do actually like the reuse of the photo behind the stats. They did that part well. ” -vrooomed

“ "Mr. Cub"...what's not to like! ” -bkklaos

“ Not a Cubs fan but he was one of the best! RIP. ” -carthage44

“ Ernie Banks Mr. Cub was one of my fave childhood players. OK so my childhood was at the end of his career. That said this is a real ugly looking card. The front looks like a back and the back looks like the stats were cut and paste on or cut off on the right because of the ruler border. An Upper Deck fail in my book. Oh its a year 2000 that could explain it. ” -captkirk42

“ The world ain't the same without him. Great stirrups to boot. ” -jlaz10

“ I liked when companies started doing sets like this with the legends and old-timers. Seems like this was one of the first. Helps me build my Hall of Fame collection, which would be missing a lot more players without sets like this. And I know this card looks a lot better in person than this scan would indicate. ” -switzr1

“ A baseball great. ” -koloth42

Set: 2002 Upper Deck Vintage (Rate)

Card: #23 Alex Gonzalez

“ Wait...isn't that a Topps design on the front? ” -Billy Kingsley

“ This is the guy that caused the Cubs to implode during the 2003 NLCS because of his fielding error. It's very sad that Cubs fans still blame Bartman when they should be blaming this guy because he couldn't field a routine ground ball in the 8th inning and the Cubs would have avoided the historic collapse. ” -carthage44

“ Don't have to worry about dripping mustard on the back of this card ” -NJdevils

“ Upper Deck Vintage The Original Archives LOL. When they first came out I hated them, I was in an anti-reprints, anti-retro look phase of my collecting. Now I love them. ” -captkirk42

“ The Blue Jays try with red didn't work out as well as planned. ” -jlaz10

“ One of the many design re-makes...this of the 1971 Topps set. I like the 71 set design, but this is so clean compared to the 71. ” -suomibear8

Set: 2001 Topps (Rate)

Card: #715 Emil Brown

“ I wonder whom it was that decided two curvy corners and two square corners looked cool. That person was a dope. ” -revnorb

“ I love the way they used the "skull & crossbones" to create a logo. ” -C2Cigars

“ Love how Topps always give you a ton of information and stats on the back of their cards. ” -carthage44

“ This Anniversary set came out during my card hiatus. I first saw it when I got a ton of Expos cards in 2005/06 for cheap on ebay in a priority mail flat rate box. A medium sized one if I recall correctly. I hated this design at first. It might have been that I had about 1/2 a dozen Felipe Alou from this set and no Vlads from it. Now like many of the 1990s sets I like it now. ” -captkirk42

“ A good set by Topps, front and back....and easy to read numbers. Now I am nit-picking, I prefer the numbers in the upper let corner. ” -NJdevils

“ Not only do I prefer the numbers in the upper "let" corner, I like them in the upper "left" too. ” -NJdevils

“ Not Topps' worst effort. Certainly nowhere near their best. ” -vrooomed

Set: 1977 San Diego Padres Schedule Cards (Rate)

Card: #NNO Glenn Beckert

“ This is actually pretty cool,especially if you were a Padres dedicated fan. ” -uncaian

“ Great concept. Didn't know these existed. ” -vrooomed

“ For some reason I like those 70s Mustard and Brown uniforms much better than anything they have had since. The Gold and Blue the wear a lot now does not suit them I always think they are the Brewers in blue. ” -captkirk42

“ Cool card, you get a player and a list of the special events on the back. They should bring these back! ” -carthage44

“ So Glenn's just happy to be there, right? Oh wait, he's an actual player... ” -Mihome316

“ You can never have to many cards!!! ” -BIGPOPA4U2NV

Set: 1993 Maxx Premier Plus (Rate)

Card: #175 Bill Elliott

“ What year was this card made? ” -switzr1

“ What year is this??? ” -volbox

“ Nice run of NASCAR lately. Something nobody acknowledges, but Maxx actually had a Chrome card out around the same time - if not before- Topps did. Hot Wheels actually did beat Topps to the market with a Chrome card. Elliott would continue to win the Most Popular Driver award every year except 2001, when Dale Earnhardt won it posthumously, until Elliott retired from full-time competition. Dale Earnhardt Jr. has won it every year since. Elliott's son Chase became NASCAR's youngest champion last year when he won the 2nd level title in his first year. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I think they need a few more 93's on the card just so everyone understands what year the card is, LOL! ” -carthage44

“ Why does this make me think Partridge Family? ” -captkirk42

“ Best photo of a chain link fence in the history of card collecting. ” -NJDevils

“ Are we positive this card is from '93? ” -ShoTime

Set: 2005 Topps Updates & Highlights (Rate)

Card: #UH325 Jay Bruce

“ I really should pick up this set. ” -captkirk42

“ I am glad baseball cards (Topps) finally changed the way their rookie cards are distributed. Cards like this one are distributed soon after being drafted. Jay Bruce has turned out well but so many other draft picks do not pan out yet their cards are still out there. They are worthless. ” -carthage44

“ In the red bar at the top it says he was drafted by the Braves (presumably an error), but in the text it says he was drafted by the Reds. ” -jackal726

“ The Reds black phase. Every team had one, but it just didn't work for the Reds. Their colors should be red and white, per the Big Red Machine. ” -jlaz10

Set: 2008 Bowman Draft Picks & Prospects - Chrome Prospects (Rate)

Card: #BDPP24 Xavier Avery

“ Whoa, that looks very pointy. I'd be afraid I'd take my eye out. ” -ShoTime

“ Say that name 5 times, really fast! ” -cckeith

“ Ugly design. Too much going on. Chrome cards are tough to scan, too. ” -suomibear8

“ One of the Bowman sets that made me Hate Bowman and Bowman Chrome. I don't hate them as much as I used to but for several years the Bowman Checklist is VERY DIFFICULT to decipher. I never can tell when a Prospect is a "Prospect" or a "Rookie Prospect". Don't make 3 and 4 level "subsets" that look EXACTLY ALIKE and then number them with confusing letter combinations that make little sense. Then to make matters worse each year you only subtly change the design so several years worth of sets blend together to confuse the average collector. ” -captkirk42

“ I like the design, and the scan is excellent, which is difficult to do with Chrome cards. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Worst numbering system in the history of card collecting. Got rid of most of mine just so I wouldn't have to deal with it. ” -NJDevils

“ Does anyone collect Bowman? The only people I see buying Bowman are speculators and PC player completests. ” -jackal726

“ Whoever comes up with these Bowman designs needs to be publicly shamed! ” -mkaz80

“ Sorry to say, the back looks better then the front :(. Im just not big on this set. ” -engine614

“ The original templated BP top. Color loops around the armpits, piping up the shoulders. Began the MLB trend of institutionalized uniforms. ” -jlaz10

“ Pretty cool looking design, but man there are so many subsets! ” -Joshua825

“ Spitting out cards just because you can doesn't mean you should, Topps. ” -carthage44

“ Not a bad looking design. I'm not sure I have any cards from this set. I would suppose that there are dozens of parallel versions of this card. Or maybe they weren't going quite so overboard with parallels yet in 2008. ” -switzr1

Set: 1996 Studio (Rate)

Card: #130 Michael Tucker

“ I don't really understand the appeal of the Studio sets, especially the first couple. They reminded me of a mix between those sepia tone old west photos and a Covershots photo shoot in the mall. ” -Id8jlb8666

“ Can we get a close-up next time? Yeah, who needs stats. ” -NJDevils

“ Don't like this design, especially the back. I did like Tucker when he was with the Royals though. ” -jupiterhill

“ Studio to me was either really good or really bad.This was definately BAD. ” -engine614

“ Too much face. ” -carthage44

“ How bizarre. The crop off the top of his head but give us plenty of neck? OK then! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ The Royals unis just don't look the same without rups. ” -jlaz10

“ For some reason I don't really like the Studio sets. I do sometimes like sets that are similar though, I don't know why I have a beef against the Studio brand. ” -captkirk42
