Set: 1992 Fleer (Rate)

Card: #158 Tom Gordon

“ I like the 1992 Fleer, they(Fleer) started back on the road to quality sets. And this is Steven King's favorite player? ” -Jerry Yeager

“ Cool design, but the name, especially the first name, seems a little hard to read. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I can't be 100% sure! but I think his name is "Gordon". Perhaps a larger font would help. ” -wamk

“ I liked this set and the 93 set. It was nice to see Fleer get away from the retina searing colours. ” -Mike67

“ All I can think about to say is contortionist. ” -Dixxy

“ 1992 Fleer - the year Fler decided to try to keep up with the Jones's in their base set (they already tried the previous year with Ultra). A little too much green for my tastes, but overall a good set. Looks much better in hand than in a scan. Try finding the update set for under $20 these days - heck, try finding it for under $30! ” -vrooomed

“ The Royals whites are some of the best in the bigs. ” -jlaz10

“ Society deteriorated once designers found the "blend" tool in Photoshop. ” -Norb Rozek

“ An underrated set and an underrated reliever. All around good stuff here. ” -Luckynumber78

“ I always liked this set. I also was a big fan of Tom Gordon in the Kansas City years. Glad the Royals are getting some love on the card of the day. ” -jupiterhill

Set: 1991 JOGO (Rate)

Card: #164 Robert Mimbs

“ 91 CFL! Yes! ” -ray fosse's ghost

“ Someone in the editing dept really loved the bold and italic options when typing up the paragraph for the back of this card ” -ThemightyOx

“ I was liking this card until I looked at the back. Why, oh why, did they randomly make some words bold and some are italicized? Looks horrendous. And unreadable. I keep trying to stress those words as i read it. Doesn't work. However, the action photo is nice. ” -vrooomed

“ Not everyday you see a CFL card. ” -jlaz10

“ Yay Argos! Rip him apart! ” -DanD

“ I've never seen a team name set in 12 point Times New Roman (or local equivalent) before. I kinda hope to never see it again. The tiny name in a faux-script font at the bottom is similarly horrible. I did always like that CFL logo, however. Too bad it's not bigger. ” -revnorb

Set: 2006 Bowman Heritage (Rate)

Card: #143 Victor Martinez

“ After all those 1990s cards, where it looked like graphic designed barfed colors everywhere, the 2000s bring back simplicity. Just goes to show, they knew what they were doing back in the early days of bubble gum card design! ” -vrooomed

“ I don't know if the old Bowman set didn't have any stats on the back, but in today's game, no stats on the back of a baseball card is a cardinal sin in my book... ” -lyfestory

“ This is a nice-looking card. I'm all in favour of a retro look that actually looks vintage. The back completes the look nicely. ” -Luckynumber78

“ The current Indians uniforms are so much better than these. It's funny because the only difference is there's no sleeve braid or plaquet piping; just a simple stripe on the sleeve ends and neck. ” -jlaz10

Set: 2009 Upper Deck First Edition (Rate)

Card: #198 Jon Niese

“ I miss Topps having some competition, but unfortunately, the hobby just doesn't have the muscle to support it. A nice looking card, but part of the First Edition/Opening Day strategy that is of questionable value and interest. ” -PlayerPCCollector

“ Thank god the Mets took black out of their color scheme. When you think of the New York Mets, you think of blue and orange, not black, right? ” -jlaz10

“ Front of card is a little busy. Back would have been very nice if they thought of something to put below his limited stats. ” -NJDevils

“ More like Upper Deck Last Edition ” -volbox

Set: 2009-10 Topps (Rate)

Card: #212 Jeff Green

“ The last Topps set before the NBA gave Panini it's exclusive license. (Why sports do this is beyond me, it never works well...although Panini does a better job with the NBA than Press Pass does with NASCAR) I miss Topps' NBA presence, the main Topps set was always a favorite of mine. I only have one card from this set, as I was away from the NBA when it was issued. The Thunder are an exciting team to watch, but Green was traded to the Celtics. So, the player named green now wears green. He missed an entire year with heart problems. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ So after nearly a year on the site (which I love, BTW), I finally got a scan on the CotD! Hey Billy, I finally got one! So Titanup74...how do you submit the back, but not the front...what happened? I've run across that a few times...just curious!? Cheers! ” -bkklaos

“ I've never been a fan of the Thunder's uniform set, but maybe that's because I loved the Sonics unis so much. ” -jlaz10

Set: 2003 Topps Heritage (Rate)

Card: #309 Carlos Guillen

“ This design would have looked better with a top border. I like the back of the card better. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Eeehhh how many times do I have to tell you, I'm not related to Ozzie... ” -SaveDaKid

“ i like the Heritage cards.. too bad i never bought many... ” -lyfestory

“ Nice Heritage card,back & front. ” -uncaian

“ Extremely cool card design; extremely awkward facial expression. The design on the back is sumptuous. ” -Luckynumber78

“ The Mariners uniforms are very modern, although they've been wearing them since the mid-90's. ” -jlaz10

Set: 2003 Donruss Estrellas (Rate)

Card: #98 Rafael Palmeiro

“ Stats should be more prominent on the backs of cards, not relegated to next-to-nothing at the bottom.. While it's nice to read facts and what not, stats are better than some foreign language information.. ” -lyfestory

“ Looks like he swung without moving the lower half of his body at all ” -Hollywood42

“ esteroide? tengo helado en mis pantalones!!! ” -SaveDaKid

“ The Rangers uniforms will never be as good as their Nolan Ryan-era set. ” -jlaz10

“ Looks like he's playing tug-of-war with a host of unseen adversaries. ” -Norb Rozek

“ How does one say "steroids" in Spanish. He also did Viagra ads. Was there any drug he didnt use? ” -NJDevils

Set: 2000 Upper Deck MLS (Rate)

Card: #43 Wolde Harris

“ I think he missed the ball. Great team logo! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ The Jamaican International was one of the early stars for the fledgling MLS. He also earned 28 caps for Jamaica. I do like this set but this card does hit my one pet peeve in collecting. The kit and logo do not match, for some strange reason that bugs me and strikes me as lazy on the company's part. ” -Gunny

“ America's sport of the future since 1972!!! Where will all those little kids who used to play pop warner go, to the pitch my friend, to the pitch... ” -SaveDaKid

“ Cool card. I really like the design. Not a fan of soccer, but this is a good looking card. ” -yokonashiwa

“ Obviously a traded player, considering the Colorado Rapids kit he has on. ” -jlaz10

Set: 1995 Pinnacle (Rate)

Card: #434 Eddie Taubensee

“ What exactly is going on in this photo? Is he praying, tying his knee guard thing, doing a funky dance, stretching his back, what? I have seriously no idea, LOL! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ One of my favorite sets of the 1990s. ” -PlayerPCCollector

“ Some fancy flooring in the dugout... ” -SaveDaKid

“ The interesting part of these unis is that the front number was on the lower right instead of left. ” -jlaz10

“ Does this count as an action shot? ” -Hollywood42

Set: 2002 Upper Deck Honor Roll (Rate)

Card: #112 Daryl Jones

“ It's been a surprisingly long time since a rookie card came up as Card of the Day. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Can't decide if I like this or not. We'll say it is ok. Nice camp action shot but not a huge fan of the scrubed natural backgrounds. ” -koloth42

“ Would be nice to have a photo in game uniform. This is second rate. ” -NJDevils

“ Odd how the Reebok logo is above the number, not on the sleeves. ” -jlaz10

“ WHO? Very nice card I'd say if you got the right player. Daryl Jones, flag football all star ” -SaveDaKid

“ I was gonna read it... but someone forgot about the back... ” -Dixxy

“ Nice card back....I guess. ” -volbox
