“ Nice card coming from Classic Games. Oh and a "traded/update" card at that. ” -captkirk42

“ The Hall of Fame 'Dressed to the Nines' graphic on the back is Classic!...See what I did there? Classic? Never mind. ” -rmpaq5

“ Um, don't most baseball players have faces? ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I like the Classic game sets. I'm not sure i like the uniform on the back. Another picture of Brosius would have accomplished the same thing. ” -switzr1

“ I like the basic concept for the border, but believe it is incomplete. I'd also have increased the size of the logo and year banner slightly. ” -Sportzcommish

“ The back is just funny all around. ” -carthage44

“ Pretty good design for a Classic card. But the model on the back in the A's jersey, "What up with that?". ” -parsley24

“ The Classic cards were always very colorful. ” -suomibear8

“ #45 on front, #2 on back. I don't get the design. ” -kents_stuff

The back photo/drawing is from a thing called "Dressed to the Nines" a thing associated with the Hall of Fame website to show uniforms for each team for every year.. 

They used a mannequin style drawing until 1994 when they went to a more human style

That sounds pretty cool, actually. It's just a little jarring to see a player with no face. DC Comics fans, it's like if Question started playing baseball, am I right?

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

 They are just like hockey goalies.   I was a Brodeur fan for 20 years and if it wasn't for that rent-a-car commercial,  I would have no idea what he looked like.

I see it as in the lower end of a 1-10 card. I really believe that ALL CARDS should have the following features no matter the sport:

1 - Name, First & Last

2 - Team Name

3 - Position(s)

4 - Borders -  of some type, not those with none that are hard to call centered or not BUT I like Fleer Flair from 93 to 96 in all sports a lot - they are more like art to me.

5 - Back - Stats & Trivia or Info that's informative so to "know the player or team better." 

6 - Focused Photos, some are too grainy or contrast is really high with lens flare that's abundant on any 83 Topps, Donruss or Fleet Baseball. 

I do not care for patches, game used or autographs that only have a COA on backs, they should have a few sentences about the athlete at least. 

My favorite sets are 83 Baseball in Topps bcz of the "Action Shots" , smaller "Head Shot" on front and Trivia & Stats or Facts on the backs. They are hard to find centered, focused, w/o lens flare or print lines from the process etc. So many factors in those sets make or break them & that's what makes them desirable, rarity....


I deleted the Forum Signature Info - Actually thought it was what people would see when looking at my profile instead of posts. Sorry about that guys. Thanks for the info too....
