Set: 2000 Fleer Tradition (Rate)

Card: #143 Paul Konerko

“ This same design was used for the NBA set of 2000-01, but we didn't get a cartoon! Hrumph, I say! :) The NBA set is listed under the Database as just plain Fleer, the Tradition tagline- which debuted as the main set in the 1998-99 season- is not included. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Tradition? No. Too lazy to come with something new? Yes ” -NJDevils

“ Nice striping on that jacket. ” -jlaz10

“ Fleer's attempt at old-school looking cards... not a total fail, but i don't care for the yellow background... ” -lyfestory

Set: 1987 Donruss Opening Day (Rate)

Card: #209 Orlando Mercado

“ Oh eew. Yellow! ” -Dixxy

“ Interesting color combo. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ The Tigers should throw back to these unis sometime. ” -jlaz10

“ I always liked the style of this set. What I can't stand is trying to find one that looks centered. This one isn't bad at all, but the baseballs on the sides of the card really exaggerate even the slightest mis-cut ” -Bplay24

“ Good photo, nice Tigers logo. I just see no purpose to "opening day" sets. Just another money grab by the companies. No wonder so many went belly up. ” -NJDevils

“ Never was a fan of the Opening Day sets. Never saw the need for them. Retread of the normal design. Even the back was boring as heck. ” -vrooomed

“ This is the Opening Day concept I wished Topps used. A set of each team's opening day lineup. It makes a lot more sense than their current opening day set concept. ” -ThemightyOx

Set: 1994 Pacific Crown Collection (Rate)

Card: #245 Richie Lewis

“ Is the card off center or just cropped funky? ” -Billy Kingsley

“ OK, Seriously? That's three cards now that the scan job has royally sucked. This one isn't even cropped at all. Stop rushing through them, take your time. The scans are more important than your point standings! ” -Dixxy

“ Can anyone out there help me finish my 1994 Pacific set? Let me know! ” -PlayerPCCollector

“ RIP Florida Marlins ” -jlaz10

“ a solid set, nothing ground-breaking... always like when the card itself goes with team colors.. ” -lyfestory

“ Terrible font for the name on the front, but pretty decent design. Number placement on the back is a pain for us set sorters. ” -vrooomed

Set: 2010 Upper Deck (Rate)

Card: #430 Edgar Renteria

“ I like this card. I have said before, and it bears repeating, UD got better in the late 2000s. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Sorry, Upper Deck. The whole "We can still do sets despite not having a MLB license" thing never really worked. ” -PlayerPCCollector

“ He's going to trip over that gopher popping up in front of him as he fields that ball.. ” -wamk

“ The lack of a team logo makes this a non-collectible. ” -g74d6

“ It's a shame UD lost it's MLB license. Their cards were good. ” -jlaz10

“ Nice design. I like it. Also like how Upper Deck started putting the series and year info right on the backs of the cards. With the glut of product out there, it makes identification much easier. ” -vrooomed

Set: 2001-02 Pacific (Rate)

Card: #70 Rod Brind'Amour

“ Solid design. Not sure why they didn't expand the stats box and leave out the color swirls, would have made it much easier to read. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ "Rod the Bod" Great player I liked this set .It wasn't as flashy as other sets,of this year, just a nice basic clean design. ” -uncaian

“ Classic Pacific look. I miss them. ” -suomibear8

“ Probably one of Pacific's best efforts. ” -NJDevils

“ Not a bad set, but they could've printed the stats a bit larger. ” -vrooomed

“ The new Hurricanes uniforms are a lot better than these mainly because of the exclusion of silver. ” -jlaz10

“ Again... horrible back scan. ” -Dixxy

Set: 1991-92 Parkhurst (Rate)

Card: #141 Joe Mullen

“ What a poor crop job... ” -Dixxy

“ The first American born player to reach 500 goals and 1,000 points for a career. He also won 3 Stanley Cups, one with Calgary Flames and two with Pittsburgh Penguins. Member of the US Hockey Hall of Fame in 1998 and The Hockey Hall of Fame in 2000, truly one of the greats of the game. ” -Gunny

“ One of the best American players ever.Was a plus for any team he played with.I like this set too. ” -uncaian

“ Real big difference between the French Parkhurst from a week ago to this one. Ho-hum. ” -NJDevils

“ The good ol' Penguins! Pittsburgh should be black and GOLD, not vegas gold. ” -jlaz10

“ Never was a hockey fan. However, this is a nice card. I especially like the back of the card. Nice full body picture. ” -yokonashiwa

Set: 1979 Topps Buck Rogers (Rate)

Card: #65 Here Come the Earth Forces!

“ I can't imagine the comments on this one will be too pleasant, hah. I like the lightning border. I've never actually seen this movie. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ See guys, this is not a Star Trek or Star Wars card and it still made card of the day. ” -deporcoruña

“ Ah, childhood memories of Erin Gray... ” -CluelessJoe

“ BIDAH BIDAH BUCK!!!!!Ahh Erin Gray,we miss you. ” -uncaian

“ All wings, prepare for stock footage dogfight! ” -DaClyde

“ STOPPPPP ” -Hollywood42

“ Movie card. Yay. ” -vrooomed

Set: 1992 Topps Magazine (Rate)

Card: #96 John Kruk

“ I loved these cards out of the magazine.. Only problem was cutting them out.. ” -Mike67

“ Purple? No, no, and no. Not for any baseball team - before the Rockies came into the league. The back is just awful. Too much border on the front. A shame it's one of my players. ” -vrooomed

“ I remember getting a few of those Topps Magazines back in the day.. always enjoyed the cheap cards included.. ” -lyfestory

“ That's a whole lotta pink. The text on the card back is interesting...I bet this guy got tired of all the people commenting on his weight...even Topps makes several jokes about it in the text. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Kind of looks like they took some advice from pro set about color... Reminds me of the Ugly '92 Dinosaurs set I scanned in not all that long ago... Gotta say....... Ew. ” -Dixxy

“ Even though this card is more than 20 years old, it's still the same Phillies uniform as today. ” -jlaz10

“ I think this was Topps attempt to see if they could produce worse designs than SI for Kids. They succeeded. ” -DaClyde

“ I didn't even know they had a Topps Magazine. Reminds me of some cards inserted into Tuff Stuff magazine that I can't find a list for on here. ” -jupiterhill

“ Despite the horrible background color, I do like the simplicity of the front of the card. I love how on the back they describe Kruk as "well-rounded." Just reading what was written about him is funny. ” -yokonashiwa

Set: 2009 Topps (Rate)

Card: #457 John Maine

“ Not a fan of the 2009 Topps. After strong sets in 2004 and 2005, Topps really went downhill in set design, until a decent 2010 and a really sharp-looking 2011 pulled them out. ” -Luckynumber78

“ The Mets look so much better without black. ” -jlaz10

“ Can't read the name,bland design, lousy photo. That's 3 strikes for the front. The back is much better. ” -NJDevils

“ Relatively nice set by Topps, pretty normal for their standards in these sets.. I like the color matching for the most part.. ” -lyfestory

Set: 1991 O-Pee-Chee Premier (Rate)

Card: #121 Frank Thomas

“ Once upon a time this was a super awesome card to own. It's still pretty rad actually. ” -ray fosse's ghost

“ Pretty nice set from when sets were over-produced.. ” -lyfestory

“ Nice of them to put 4 stats on the backs. This is a basbeball card, the back should be stat city. ” -NJDevils

“ Man was a beast in his prime, hopefully he won't be tied into the steroid era... ” -SaveDaKid

“ Pinstripes work for the ChiSox. ” -jlaz10

“ Frank Thomas played with a lot of heart, but he sure doesn't look like he wants to be here in this picture. ” -Luckynumber78
