“ I've never seen this design before, but I like it! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Should be name overkill. ” -carthage44

“ as a bonus pack card it's ok, but it wouldn't fly as a paid product card ” -mbarlow092

“ LET'S GO CAPS! The season's getting closer. Latta wasn't with us long, now he's with the 'Yotes. ” -IfbBirdsCards

“ CAPS LOVE for the RCotD. 'Nuff said. ” -captkirk42

“ Seems like a lot of wasted space to me. And a head shot should be straight in the camera, not a subsection of the action photo on the front of the card. ” -kents_stuff

“ Can't say that I've ever heard of Upper Deck Overtime, or of Michael Latta. ” -rmitchell6700

“ This would be a great card if the name went where the OVERTIME branding is. Then they just need to get rid of the OVERTIME branding image and add a team logo in the corner. Yes, it would have been great. Instead, it is just, eh. ” -muskie027

I'm not a hockey fan at all, but I like this card. A nice and simple design with a bit of info on the back. Putting the team logo on the front also AND having the head shot be different from the front photo would be much better. It's not bad, but could easily be better!

Whiner! =P

Overtime cards are only available as a card shop incentive program, the few packs I have gotten came as a surprise when buying hobby boxs from my card shop. The card is nice, and I agree its the 2000s people you must have more than one photo at your disposal!

A team logo on the front would only detract from this and most designs. That's the kind of thing that should be on the card back.

My goal is to get at least one card from every person with an NBA, NASCAR or NHL card.
