Set: 1991 Score (Rate)

Card: #746 Jeff Shaw

“ Rookie prospect? Home boy looks 35. ” -Young Kilo

“ nothing like the 91 Score set to get us fired up! Wahoo, I'll take 100 of 'em. ” -flcardtrader

“ Scan seems very washed out. It appears Score started out with decent designs and then plummeted...because the design of this one is not bad at all. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I think I have a copy or 10 of this one. ” -Mike67

“ The lost art of writing flavor text for card backs. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ The Indians racing stripes remind me of Major League. ” -jlaz10

Set: 2005 Playoff Absolute Memorabilia - Team Trios (Rate)

Card: #14 Alan Trammell / Jack Morris / Kirk Gibson

“ A nice trio of players. Between these three players they have a combined 11 All-Star appearances, 7 World Series titles (2 World Series MVPs), 4 Gold Golves, 4 Silver Slugger Awards, a NL MVP and a no hitter. Hard to believe that none of these three guys are in the Hall of Fame. However, Trammell was inducted into the National Polish-American Sports Hall of Fame in 1998. ” -carthage44

“ It's amazing how many borderline HoFers there were on that '84 team. ” -UNC_Samurai

“ Interesting card design. The wide open space under the photos looks kind of strange, but I am guessing- and I really have no clue- that there is a relic parallel set which would have 1, 2 or 3 jersey or other material swatch in that open space under the photo. Or, I could be wrong and it's just a funky design! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Absolute whatever. ” -NJDevils

“ Interesting use of the Tigers script instead of any one of their primary logos. ” -jlaz10

“ Not a fan of this design. ” -vrooomed

Set: 1999-00 Hoops (Rate)

Card: #22 Tracy McGrady

“ Hey, another of mine. Cool! Fun fact: This was the last card scan needed to complete the set on the Database. I always was a fan of McGrady- I even broke out and wore the 2003-04 (I think) home Magic jersey to my last scale model club meeting, earlier this month. Unfortunately this was during the time where the Skybox products were written as if talking to the player...not a good concept, luckily it didn't last long. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ McGrady played from 1997-2013 with the Raptors, Magic, Rockets, Knicks, Pistons, Hawks and Spurs. He also played in China during the 2012-13 season. Career Stats: 18,381 points (19.6 PPG), 5,276 rebounds (5.6 RPG) and 4,161 assists (4.4 APG). He was a 7x All-Star, 2x All-NBA First Team and a 2x Scoring Champion. McGrady is currently pursuing a baseball career by working with Roger Clemens to become a pitcher for the Sugar Land Skeeters of the Independent Atlantic League. ” -carthage44


“ Oh, was hoping for a T-mac minor league baseball card...like how he jumped over his cousin to attempt this awkward layup... ” -SaveDaKid

“ PURPLE RAPTORS!!!! ” -jlaz10

“ Good timing. The Raptors are finally back in the playoffs!! ” -DanD

Set: 2010 Topps Allen & Ginter (Rate)

Card: #151 Kanekoa Texeira

“ Texeira was drafted by the Brewers in 31st round during the 2004 MLB Draft but did not sign. He was drafted again, this time in the 22nd round during the 2006 MLB Draft by the White Sox. In 2008, he was part of the trade that sent Nick Swisher to the White Sox and Texeira was sent to the Yankees. In 2009, the Mariners selected him in the Rule 5 Draft. He played in the majors in 2010 and 2011 with the Mariners and Royals. Career: 1-1 record, 4.66 ERA and 33 strikeouts. He last played in 2013 in the Reds organization and is currently a free agent. Texeira is the cousin of Shane Victorino. ” -carthage44

“ Really weird to see the stats spelled out, not in numerical form...but cool. They should have included his first name on the front though. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Sorry but it is 2010 not 1910. I see no point to this type of card. ” -NJdevils

“ They should have just left the RC off of the card. ” -jlaz10

Set: 1992 Score - Impact Players (Rate)

Card: #21 Mo Vaughn

“ Decent design from Score. Picture is good quality, card back is a little bewildering- in the choices made department. (A tan border on half the card? OK, why not?) ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I like Score cards. Wish they were still around ” -Young Kilo

“ "Score," ...ya didn't. Quit trying? Simple and overprinted. ” -Dixxy

“ Vaughn played from 1991-2003 with the Red Sox, Angels and Mets. Career Stats: .293 AVG, 328 HR and 1,064 RBI. He was a three time All-Star (1995, 1996 and 1998), won the Silver Slugger Award in 1995 and was named AL MVP that same year. ” -carthage44

“ Let me see those stirrups! ” -jlaz10

“ Kicks up a lot of dust with one swing. ” -NJdevils

Set: 2001 Upper Deck Legends (Rate)

Card: #13 Jim Thome

“ This is a great card design, but active players shouldn't be in Legends sets unless they are so incredibly important to the game that it would be an affront to exclude them, IE, Michael Jordan when he was active. I don't know enough about baseball to know if this card should exist or not. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Thome played from 1991-2012 with the Indians, Phillies, White Sox, Dodgers, Twins and Orioles. Career: .276 AVG, 2,328 Hits, 612 HR and 1,699 RBI. He was a five-time All-Star, won the Silver Slugger Award in 1996, won the Roberto Clemente award in 2002 and was the American League Comeback Player of the Year in 2006 with the White Sox. He is currently a special assistant to the general manager with the White Sox. ” -carthage44

“ Legends?? Jim Thome? Of what one of the most overrated players ever? All hail the legend of mediocrity. ” -addysdaddy

“ RIP Chief Wahoo ” -jlaz10

Set: 1999 Fleer Tradition (Rate)

Card: #557 Sean Runyan

“ I really liked this design for Fleer's flagship set when it was new. I liked the gray foil used for the parallel even more. It appears the baseball set was all gold foil. The basketball set was gold foil for rookies only, using red and light blue foil for western and eastern conference respectively. I wish that we, speaking as an NBA collector, got as good coverage on cards as baseball does. The NBA set was only 220 cards. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ LOve the action shot but I am really annoyed with cursive team name. Flip flop with the all caps name would make me happy. That and adding team logo to the front ” -SSG Temple

“ Could we get a larger font on the name next time around? ” -NJdevils

“ Great way of showing both the Tigers home and road unis. ” -jlaz10

“ The team name on there is a real eyesore. Glad I never collected these. ” -Luckynumber78

Set: 2004 Topps (Rate)

Card: #115 Chad Johnson

“ Good card design, and good photography. It appears the team name and his name are both foil. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I get the feeling changing his name to Ocho Cinco might not of been the best of ideas ” -Young Kilo

“ Boy oh boy where does one begin? Maybe someone should slap the backside of the card designer and say good job, oh wait that might land someone in jail! ” -addysdaddy

“ My favorite line of his: "I gotta show em' how to eat right man, that's all...I got all five food groups. Pancakes, sausage-egg McMuffin, cinnamon roll, large orange juice...I just be juiced all day." ” -UNC_Samurai

“ Ah, Reebok's cheap quality. ” -jlaz10

“ This really makes me want to track down a Chad Ochocinco card ” -jackal726

“ Ocho Cinco - which actually translates to eight five, not eighty-five. ” -vrooomed

Set: 2002 Fleer - Tiffany (Rate)

Card: #299 Mike Lamb

“ It looks like the only difference on this parallel to the regular version is the serially numbering on the back...I would not be surprised if it was glossy where the base card was not. I hope that's the case because if it's just the number that would be rather disappointing...but I know from my own collection Fleer did do that kind of thing at that time. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Lamb played from 2000-2010 with the Rangers, Astros, Twins, Brewers and Marlins. Career: .276 AVG, 69 HR and 349 RBI. Notable facts: Was a part of the 1995 College World Series Champion Cal State Fullerton Titans, drafted in the 7th round by the Rangers and in 2005 he hit the first ever Houston Astros home run in a World Series game. ” -carthage44

“ How was Lamb as a player? Not baaaaad. ” -wamk

“ I have to say, these kind of subsets amuse me. look at it's counterpart from the base set. What's the difference? whatever the difference, this one is 066/200 and that makes it worth more. People go out of their way to complete these sets? ” -Dixxy

“ Looks like something you'd cut off of the bottom of a box of Bicentennial muffins or something. Also, there's something fatally uncool about not having the team name or player position on the front of the card. ” -revnorb

“ The Texas Texases. Whatever happened to Rangers? ” -jlaz10

“ I like the simplistic square border, it reminds me of the early 90s Topps cards. Also, I love the red-white-and-blue color scheme of both the card and even the colors in the photo. This combined with his playing for Texas just screams America. The stats on the back are solid too. It's an all-around good card. ” -ScottoftheBoro

Set: 1996 Score (Rate)

Card: #162 Joey Cora

“ This is a surprisingly good design for Score...from what I've seen on the Database, their designs tend to be lousy or lackluster, but this...this is great. Stats and bio, large clear photos with no real digital alterations, and the card design is not intrusive or silly. I'm impressed! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Cora played from 1987-1998 with the Padres, White Sox, Mariners and Indians. Career: .277 AVG, 30 HR, 194 RBI, 1,035 Hits and 117 SB. He was an All-Star in 1997 with the Mariners and won a World Series ring with the White Sox as the third base coach in 2005. ” -carthage44

“ Decent back. Lousy front. Never liked breaking the names into two different fonts. ” -NJDevils

“ Even back in '96 the Mariners still wore their current uni set. ” -jlaz10

“ He always looked like his cap didn't fit. ” -volbox

“ I always thought Score had the ugliest designs....this proves it. ” -suomibear8
