Random Card of the Day

Friday, September 19, 2014

Set: 2013 Topps Platinum (Rate)

Card: #56 Maurice Jones-Drew

“ It always amazes me how quickly RBs fade from the spotlight. Two years removed from league leader to a mere afterthought this year in Fantasy drafts. ” -koloth42

“ YAAAAAWN!!!!!! ” -uncaian

“ The Jaguars never looked good in this set, even in Nike. ” -jlaz10

“ I don't really collect football cards anymore but have always liked the looks of the Topps Platinum cards, this card is what I'm talking about. It's different due to the fact that it showcases the player without any background picture, just the design. ” -Joshua825

Set: 2014 Finest (Rate)

Card: #85 Justin Verlander

“ This guy is killing my fantasy team this season, LOL! ” -carthage44

“ Cool design. I've always been a fan of Finests, and I know they look much better in person than in scans...and this is a great scan too. The card would benefit by having his first name on the front though. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Card is a little psychedelic for my taste maybe it is just the scan though. To bad Verlander appears to be in decline. It was a great ride while it lasted. ” -koloth42

“ Throwback to 1990s color schemes and graphics. Not a fan at all. ” -vrooomed

“ That didn't take long! I imagine this is a love it or hate it design. I have so many cards that look basically the same, I love a set that looks completely different. ” -jackal726

“ So this guy plays for a team called the Finests and he is attempting to pitch thru a dimensional gateway consisting of a urinal mat and random LSD hallucinations? Sure, I'll take a box. ” -revnorb

“ Great uniform. The script is beautiful. ” -jlaz10

“ I always thought that the Finest sets were really cool looking, they seemed to stand out compared to other sets. ” -Joshua825

“ 2014 has not been Justin's finest. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ This is a cool looking card. I would collect these. ” -switzr1

Set: 1993 Leaf (Rate)

Card: #47 John Olerud

“ When I was younger, I always thought these cards were "high class" because of the foil stamping. Now, not so much. ” -carthage44

“ A Blue Jay from the glory days ” -dobbie

“ Nice looking set. Downside - the cards were glossed so heavily they stuck together. Upside - the Godzilla photos on the back. ” -Id8jlb8666

“ I like how Leaf had all of its sports cards in similar styles. ” -Howintensive

“ Wow, I'm amazed to see this...because the front of this design was essentially ripped off by Wheels for the 1994 High Gear set. I've never seen the year older baseball set before. The back is cool. Got a Godzilla theme going on :) ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I would like the front better if the player's position(s) was listed. The superimposition of the player over the cityscape on the reverse is STILL odd. And I want career stats, year by year, not just last year and the totals. Do like the fronts. ” -vrooomed

“ "Why is that dude carrying his bat in the field?" - Rickey Henderson ” -UNC_Samurai

“ 2nd favourite all time Blue Jay.I didn't know about this set,I like good front & back. ” -uncaian

“ I liked the design on the card set, but hard to beat the 1990 set! ” -Joshua825

“ Just wondering if John also wore the helmet to the john. ” -NJDevils

“ I loved this set when it came out. The foil team logo and the cityscape backgrounds were my favorite parts. You didn't really see cards like that prior to this set. I think each team has two cityscapes, except I think the Marlins and Rockies only have one. ” -duaned99

“ Helmet at bat and in the field. ” -jlaz10

“ Olerud rips another....I always liked this guy. ” -flcardtrader

“ "...and Godzilla is out on a grounder to third... ” -volbox

Set: 1986 Toronto Blue Jays Fire Safety (Rate)

Card: #NNO Rance Mulliniks

“ Nice 1980s promo design. Certainly blue enough :) ” -Billy Kingsley

“ His name seems made up. Rance Mulliniks? Really? ” -carthage44

“ Love the simplicity of these team/safety issues. If I collected Blue jays stuff, I'd have to have this set! ” -vrooomed

“ I don't think Rance Mulliniks really said that. Ever. At least I hope not. ” -jackal726

“ "Clearly unburdened by the demands of undue effort" is the nicest way I can put it... ” -revnorb

“ "If you start any fires, I will use my bat on you." ” -Howintensive

Set: 2009 Topps (Rate)

Card: #30a Ken Griffey Jr.

“ As a White Sox fan, it was great having Griffey, a future Hall of Famer and a great person on the team even for a short period of time. ” -carthage44

“ Ooooh!!!!!ooooh!!!! Mr. Guilen sir can I bat clean up. ” -PALE HOSER FAN SINCE 1959

“ It's like seeing Willie Mays as a Met. It should of never happened ” -Young Kilo

“ I really like Griffey. I really like the White Sox logo. I really do not like the White Sox logo on Griffey. Too bad he didn't spend his whole career in Seattle. ” -duaned99

“ Great time to break out this story - Flashback to 1988. Jr is playing for the Vermont Mariners (AA, Eastern League) and they are playing in Reading, PA. My best friend goes up to Jr and says, "I'll buy you a hot dog and a Pepsi if you sign 2 baseballs for me." Jr replies, "We can't have food in the dugout, so I can't have a hot dog, but make it 2 Pepsi's, and you have a deal." SO, off to the concession stand we go to retrieve two Pepsi's, and he hands them into the dugout. About 20 seconds later, out pops 2 baseballs, signed by Jr. He still has one of them. I was not as forward thinking then - I didn't get one. ” -vrooomed

Set: 1981 Topps (Rate)

Card: #135 Gorman Thomas

“ Love it! ” -carthage44

“ First set I ever collected. Also, Bruce Sutter striking out Gorman Thomas to end the 1982 World Series is my favorite sports memory of my childhood. ” -switzr1

“ This guy hit more home runs than Paul Molitor, Robin Yount, Kirk Gibson and has 9 more than Derek Jeter. However, a .225 career batting average isn't gonna punch your ticket to the Hall (for what that's worth nowadays). ” -Id8jlb8666

“ Outfield, based on the photo I can only assume, means outside the field, looking in? ” -Billy Kingsley

“ This is really a lame card design, but it's also a fine portrait of Stormin' Gorman, because it makes you realize that in a not-too-radically-different timeline, he could be looking out thru barbed wire in a prison exercise yard in the same pose. ” -revnorb

“ Another one of my scans and in a set that I like. The 1981 Topps set contains some Baseball greats while the set is reasonably priced. ” -sltyeager

“ Looks like he's waiting to be adopted. ” -MAS

“ YES!!! ” -SSG Temple

“ Back when spring training fields were high school-quality. ” -jlaz10

Set: 1999 Topps - New Breed (Rate)

Card: #NB9 Derek Jeter

“ Decent enough design, but i don't like the photograph. Bat is barely visible and he's just in a weird position all around. ” -switzr1

“ Was this a scene from "Yellow Submarine?" ” -revnorb

“ This is what a Yankee game looks like to Keith Richards. ” -Id8jlb8666

“ Very distracting card. Looks like something the old Pacific would produce ” -NJDevils

“ This is what happens when Topps tries to imitate Pacific. ” -DaClyde

“ Looks like a Finest card. ” -carthage44

“ 1990s - ugh. ” -vrooomed

“ The one and only. ” -jlaz10

Set: 1990 Score (Rate)

Card: #668 Tom Goodwin

“ One trick pony who parlayed that one trick (speed) into a 14 year career. ” -Young Kilo

“ The "90 Score" bit in the corner is sort of foolish looking, especially when coupled with the "1st Round Pick" thing, but I don't think this is too terrible of a design. I wish it would have "DODGERS" somewhere in big letters, though, like in '67/'69. ” -revnorb

Set: 2002-03 Fleer Box Score (Rate)

Card: #52 Antawn Jamison

“ I loved this set when it was new, but now I am just indifferent on it. I did complete it though. Jamison never found much success, even though he was a very good player in his prime. Unfortunately for him most of the time he was the only really great player on whatever team he was on, and when he wasn't, he was traded away quickly. He was still in the League last year, at the start of the year, before being traded at the trade deadline and waived. It seems unlikely he will find a new contract as his output has significantly dropped off from his prime. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ It would be nice if they picked white or gray for the front, and white or black for the back. At least they were trying a NEW design, and not something from the past. ” -vrooomed

“ Blah! ” -NJdevils

“ Thank god the Warriors went back to their classic blue and gold color scheme. The uniform shown here was absolutely horrendous. ” -jlaz10

“ It is a basketball card. I don't get too excited about them. Yes, it is a great picture, but I just can't be in love with basketball cards. ” -yokonashiwa

Set: 1988-89 O-Pee-Chee Stickers (Rate)

Card: #257 Mike Foligno

“ So, if 257 is Mike Foligno, who is #125? ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Never liked any of the sticker cards. ” -carthage44

“ Does it get any worse? ” -SSG Temple

“ I liked this set for the action shots & trivia,but the rookie subset was ugly. ” -uncaian

“ Two great sweaters that their respective teams need to go back to. ” -jlaz10

“ Looks like a barcode with a picture pasted over the top of it. ” -Id8jlb8666

“ Wow! One of my scans! Ugly one, though. I think it was printed off-center. ” -DanD
