Random Card of the Day

Year: 2007

Set: Topps Moments & Milestones (Rate)

Card: #162-201 Roger Clemens


“ Hands down the dumbest insert set....ever......eeeeevvvvveer! The sheer number of small print run cards, pretty much all with th exact same photo. Stupid, stupid, stupid. ” -rmpaq5

“ Good thing Clemens didn't have other memorable moments or milestones mentioned on the card, else they'd cover up the front picture. ” -Sportzcommish

“ Wanna get a baseball debate going ,talk about the Rocket. Actually not a bad card. ” -uncaian

“ UGH I did not like these Moments and Milestones cards. Too many cards with the same ding dang design the only difference is the number for the stat. ” -captkirk42

“ This looks good. I am not a big fan of how much is taken out for the bottom info stripe, but since this /150 and it appears to be an insert of some sort, I don't mind. Color on the back wouldn't have hurt, given the nice coloring on the front. It is weird to see Clemens as an Astro. ” -muskie027

“ This set has 12,475 cards. Can you say OVERKILL!!! ” -carthage44

“ Ugh.. Hated this set way too many cards. Nice to see the Rocket. but nope not for me. ” -Mihome316

“ Cool card of one of my favorite pitchers of all time. I hope he makes it into the Hall soon. I've never seen this set before. Obviously not the flagship Topps set but I don't have anything negative to say. ” -Mitch

“ First impression: Clemens looks very large in this photo. Low SN which is cool (love #9!). Confused on the strikeout portion however; 201, or 218? Statline on the back lists it as 218, so what's the significance of the 201?? ” -jasongerman9

“ Great pitcher, great scan ” -hphillips

“ When his son was playing here in Lexington, KY, the rocket took the team to Best Buy and bought the players a bunch of toys that single A players usually can't afford. ” -UKboogie

Set has 12475 cards and yet 8,5% images added. That's quite nice considering that it's limited set.

Well, I'm one of the crazy people working on this set.  If anyone has any leads on how I can find cards I need to complete it, drop me a line.

No, really, I want the answer to the question jasongerman9 asked, because I had the same question. What is the significance of the 201? It doesn't seem to tell me that date of the 201st strikeout. Oldest pitcher with 200 in a season? Doesn't say that. Maybe everything he does is a milestone, so there's also a 202 Strikeouts card, and 203. That could explain how they got to 12,000+ cards....Does anyone actually know what the milestone and/or moment is with this card?

Vvvergeer, they made a card for each of Roger Clemens' 218 strikeouts during the 2004 season so yes there are 218 different Clemens cards starting with his 1st K through his 218th K. This set has Pujols RBI total for a season and other players home run totals for a season. It's an overkill set to the extreme.

Thanks. That's what I was afraid of. I'm glad my wife doesn't want to do anniversaries like this. I can't afford a nice dinner every single day...

Dave, COMC appears to have a lot of these cards. I would check there first

Thanks Ketchupman, but I couldn't afford the set buying them piecemeal on COMC.  I usually buy them in quantity from dealers.
