Set: 2006 Topps Turkey Red (Rate)

Card: #343a Richie Sexson

“ I don't get the appeal of these sets. Just another arty junk product. ” -Id8jlb8666

“ If these were truly "framed" they would be nicer. From these new TRs I have, they are thick, so nice stock. I only wish I had an original TR! ” -vrooomed

“ Doesn't quite have the look or feel of the original T3's, but still a nice retro set. ” -suomibear8

“ One of my favorite sets. I love the canvas look and the paintings of the players! ” -Joshua825

“ At first glance, I thought this was a golf card. ” -switzr1

“ I like the texture, look and classic looking backs of Turkey Red. And I really like the pose and background on this card. ” -armac

Set: 1996 Takara Nippon-Ham Fighters (Rate)

Card: #27 Shinichi Kawana

“ Ham Fighters has to be the greatest team name in sports history! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ GO DaClyde!!! You do find the most FASCINATING stuffs to add to the database!!! It's honestly hard to think of any other country having a "pro" league of any sport other than soccer really. after all the NHL is the most desired league in hockey, the MLB is likely the most followed world wide league, NFL is the most bet on by far! even non football fans bet on the superbowl! NBA is likely the most swept under the rug league. Not for bad reasons!! Everyone is just too focused on the others that they use the excuse that they can't follow another sport, there's too much on their plate already... I want to see a japan and US pro Baseball game! Just one! Who do you think would win??! ” -Dixxy

“ This has to be a DACLYDE scan. ” -Id8jlb8666

“ Never heard of this set, but love the international flavor! ” -bkklaos

“ As far as the astethetics, I don't care for the design. I have the 1968 Topps card game cards. They were well played with when I was a kid, but now have very little value because of their condition. Card game cards are like a cruel joke..."here's a card game for you, but don't play with it". ” -C2Cigars

“ I'd love it if I could read it. :) ” -vrooomed

“ I always love the concepts of making the cards into a game. I wish I knew what the different results were for the dice on the back. ” -armac

“ Interesting number font. Half block and half round. ” -jlaz10

“ I wouldn't mind owning a Japanese baseball card, preferably one like this where the name is showing on his jersey. ” -switzr1

Set: 1988 K-Mart Memorable Moments (Rate)

Card: #30 Rick Sutcliffe

“ Standing in front of a wall is a memorable moment? Perhaps they should have used a photo related to the caption on the back of the card. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I loved these little boxed sets from the '80s. Although, this wasn't one of my favorites. By the way, it looks like they drove out to San Quentin to get a photo of Sutcliffe. ” -mkaz80

“ Rick looks like a perfect candidate for the "Hairy Face Team". lol...Luv small box sets...I have a HUGE collection of them. ~BOB ” -BOBSCARDZ

“ I'm sure this photo is a moment Rick Sutcliffe doesn't remember. ” -Id8jlb8666

“ Look how well they've captured that memorable moment...when Sutcliffe watched Scott Sanderson go 4 and 2/3rds in an 8-3 loss to the Padres. ” -wax_house

“ Box set heaven. :) ” -vrooomed

“ The Cubs were one of those teams who, despite going with '80s pullovers, looked good because they maintained their button-up style. ” -jlaz10

“ At the peak of card over production when every retail store had to have their own card set. ” -koloth42

“ "If I have to sit for a Kmart card, I am not smiling, that's it". ” -NJdevils

“ There were tons of these sotre brand sets. I don't think one of them actually had any significant value. ” -suomibear8

Set: 1971 Dell Today's Team Stamps (Rate)

Card: #NNO Daryl Patterson

“ Plain and simple. Nice stamp. Love the Tigers logo on he back ” -NJdevils

“ Interesting write up on the reverse. ” -vrooomed

“ Part of a booklet that was sold on newsstands locally. An order form in the back allowed fans to buy teams from other areas, or the complete set. which came in a special binder/cover. There are some nice color photos in this issue, especially of players who didn't appear on too many Topps cards. ” -Dave Sosidka

“ I like the comment that his best success was against Boston. You don't usually see that on a card, a mention that a player excels against one specific team. ” -switzr1

“ The Tigers home uni is one of the most classic in the game. ” -jlaz10

“ My eye just keeps going back to that glove. Wow. ” -armac

Set: 2003 SPx (Rate)

Card: #19 Drew Bledsoe

“ Am I tripping? It hurts my eyes. ” -Duke

“ This is a very odd set design, made moreso by the scan, which shows up as pink and purple lines (I would guess it was done on en Epson machine, one of my scanners does that with holofoils). I know a lot of people go nuts for SPx and SP Authentic cards, but I honestly am not that big a fan. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I normally don't comment on football (I don't really collect football), but this, this is terrible. The background on the front (and back!) looks like a really bad acid trip or something. Bledsoe, himself, was a great QB. ” -vrooomed

“ Very distracting background...hate it. ” -C2Cigars

“ I think this card had a negative effect on Bledsoe's career. ” -NJdevils

“ Wow, that is probably the busiest base card I have seen ” -jackal726

“ Too much happening in these Bills unis. The double outline isn't necessary, as is the thin royal blue stripe across the chest. ” -jlaz10

“ Ahhh! I'm blind! ” -suomibear8

“ Not a big fan of this design, but don't find is as bad as I used to. I prefer seeing the field as a background. ” -armac

Set: 2001 Topps Star Wars Evolution (Rate)

Card: #62 Princess Leia

“ Oh snap! I'm speechless. ” -Duke

“ Oh, that hair. I like this card. My earliest memory in life, though vague, is seeing Star Wars at my local drive-in. Pity George couldn't leave well enough alone and stop at three movies. ” -switzr1

“ The only cards I have from the Evolution set is the two promos. I was not actively collecting non-sports at the time, not even Star Wars. (what was I thinking?) Not too big a fan of foil cards. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Star wars... if I could wish everything to do with this franchise into extinction, I would. ” -Id8jlb8666

“ I liked the Star Wars cards from the. 70's better, because Han shot first then. ” -revnorb

“ Will never forget seeing the Star Wars debut in the theater as a kid...wow, was it "the event" of the time! Still love the movies! ” -bkklaos

“ Never seen a Star Wars movie in my entire life. I don't think I ever will too. I'm the exception that confirms the rule. ” -JimStaub

“ Loved this set! Like the design of the cards, I want to complete that set! ” -Joshua825

Set: 1991-92 Score Canadian Bilingual (Rate)

Card: #304 San Jose Sharks (Logo)

“ This put a smile on my face. Colourful and funny. I guess only in USA one can trademark a phrase like "Shark attack!". Be careful what you shout when you see a shark next time. ” -Duke

“ This card always gave me chuckle. I remember when the Sharks were introduced as an expansion team and the stir that this logo created. All the local shops had Sharks stuff for sale and it was flying off the shelves. ” -Gunny

“ Not a Hockey Card Collector...but certainly a COOL logo and card. ~BOB~ ” -BOBSCARDZ

“ I just got the American version (purple border) on January 31st. I have always liked team logo cards. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Neat card. But if this is Bilingual, where is the other "lingual"> ” -NJdevils

“ Cool card! ” -carthage44

“ A little different from the current logo, but still nice. I like this card because it shows who was on the original team. ” -vrooomed

“ Did they come up with interesting names for every team? ” -jlaz10

“ Nice card,not bad set But I still don't see the reason behind 3 different versions. ” -uncaian

“ This is how you introduce a new team to the NHL? Ohhh, look at the pretty sea anemone. ” -C2Cigars

“ Bilingual? ” -switzr1

Set: 2007-08 Upper Deck Victory (Rate)

Card: #304 Cory Murphy

“ I'm so glad they show me how to pronounce such a difficult name. ” -armac

“ Great in SM-liiga (FNL), poor in NHL. ” -Duke

“ Nice phonetic pronunciation assistance on the back. I appreciate that, as there are players on my fantasy hockey teams whose names give me a hard time. ” -Id8jlb8666

“ The Florida Panthers logo has always been one of my favorites because it looks like it could have been drawn by Jack "The King" Kirby. ” -Gunny

“ Pretty solid design for a hockey card. I am familiar with the early Victory products, and they were always nice. ” -vrooomed

“ Very impressive card, front and back. Nice set ” -NJdevils

“ The Panthers really need to ditch the Reebok EDGE templates and go to a more classic look. And bring back vertically arched names! ” -jlaz10

“ I like the Victory series,it is affordable,nice looking & has plenty of rookies. ” -uncaian

“ Even thou this is an easy name, it's cool how they have the name pronunciation on the back of the card because many hockey players' names are hard to say. ” -carthage44

“ Victory SP RC's are obtainable RC's, with the lowest value in this sport. Good for kids. ” -suomibear8

“ I'm amused by the pronunciation guide on the back more than anything. I'm sure it is there to help with European names, but having a name as easy as Cory Murphy as the sample made me laugh. ” -switzr1

“ A legend in the Finnish league, had a nice 25-game run with Lightning. Don't like jersey cards, but bought his off eBay years ago. Love him! ” -wax_house

Set: 1980 Topps (Rate)

Card: #179 Randy Logan

“ Topps sure did like that bright pink didn't they? Overall good design though. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Nice centered card. These card are hard to find this sweet. ” -carthage44

“ Typical boring Topps 80's design ... but GO EAGLES! ~BOB~ ” -BOBSCARDZ

“ Great back of card. No team logo on front? ” -NJDevils

“ Dear Philadelphia Eagles, Please bring back kelly green! Sincerely, the Uniform World. ” -jlaz10

“ Good looking card. I didn't collect football until 1982, so I have never owned many 1980s. I always liked the backs of these. ” -switzr1

Set: 1992-93 Upper Deck MVP Holograms (Rate)

Card: #15 Alvin Robertson

“ Loved this set when I was first starting to collect the NBA. I still do. If you ask me, holograms are the best innovation of the 1990s. Yes, more so than parallels, relics, autographs, etc. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ When Robertson is the Team MVP, you know the Bucks are bad. ” -carthage44

“ Holograms were kind of cool for a while, but also got scratched up really easily. This is a decent enough design though. I don't mind it, but I don't think I would like it if they did a set like this today. ” -switzr1

“ The double-green Bucks! Interesting look, but it worked for them. ” -jlaz10

“ The player gets lost in a sea of ugly. ” -C2Cigars

“ Interesting background with the hologram and shapes, don't recall seeing these. ” -Joshua825
