Set: 1997 Metal Universe - Mining for Gold (Rate)

Card: #10 Todd Walker

“ Metal Universe cards look great in person...but they don't scan very well. ” -Billy Kingsley

Set: 1994 Ted Williams - Locklear Collection (Rate)

Card: #LC19 Checklist

Set: 2003 Upper Deck (Rate)

Card: #36 Craig Perks

“ Never heard of him, but at least it's not a Power Rangers or Bratz card! And not a bad looking card, aside from using the same photo on front and back, which I never like. ” -switzr1

“ It looks like a pear with a head handcuffed to a water pipe. ” -revnorb

“ The green fade at the bottom makes it look like he's hitting from some really tall rough. ” -vrooomed

Set: 1992-93 Pro Set (Rate)

Card: #44 Vladimir Konstantinov

“ Mmmghhmmmgghgmmm, that strap sure tastes like sweat. ” -JimStaub

“ I don't think the chin strap is supposed to go across the mouth... ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I actually like this set,it's a shame that Pro Set finally got it right with what was their last hockey set.Vlad was one of the best. ” -uncaian

“ Dude is still a hero in Detroit. ” -wax_house

“ Boy, do I love that white Red Wings sweater. NHL, please make white at home again! ” -jlaz10

“ Nice card. I like how the red of the uniform matches the red of the logo which matches the red of the type. This causes me to cast an accusing glance at the orange of the NHL Pro Set, but I'll live. ” -revnorb

“ The Vlad-inator. He hit like Kronwall before there was a Kronwall. Injured (severely) in a car accident after celebrating a Stanley Cup win, never to play again. Haven't seen him lately. Hope he's still progressing. ” -vrooomed

“ YAYAYAYAYAYAYAY!!!!!!!!! a HOCKEY Contribution!!!!!!! ABOUT BLOOMING TIME!!!! Aand it had to be Pro set. 95% of Pro set cards I get end up in my doubles drawer. Although, Pro Set had a good thing going for them. Simple design, large front picture, small back picture with a tidbit of history to read. They looked out for the "little guy" and gave many a player who normally wouldn't get a rookie card the opportunity to shine. Lots of people look at that "No name player" as junk. Imagine you WERE him. After you leave the NHL from a game or two and you pick up a pro set pack, you pull YOUR rookie. The Novelty. :) ” -Dixxy
