Random Card of the Day

Year: 2014

Set: Topps Update - Gold (Rate)

Card: #US-204 Chris Capuano

“ I love serially numbered cards. I think it's an addiction. I've got more than 3200 for the NBA alone, and I have hundreds in NASCAR, and a handful in everything else. Yes, I even have baseball and football SN cards! Whenever I get some money in COMC, I usually go to the SN listing and pick off as many cheap ones as I can until I run out of money. It doesn't matter who is on the card, as long as I don't already have a copy. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I like the gold enhancement, but I prefer their original base set design as one of their best ever. ” -Sportzcommish

“ Since Topps flagship has gone borderless the past two years, "gold" cards haven't been the same. Too bad; I always enjoyed collecting these parallels. ” -mkaz80

“ I love the photos like these. Pitcher about to release the ball. Some of the best faces you will ever see. ” -RoyalChief

“ I followed this guy because he was once a Met. This is a nice-looking card, even if he's playing for the wrong NY team. ” -NYMHall

“ I think these cards need more wavy lines. ” -carthage44

“ Great card! Good photo, great back, and it's Topps. What more could you want? ” -cnangle

“ OH a modern Baseball card had to ruin the Random Card party. LOL. OK so this is the Gold parallel. I prefer this kind of parallel than those subtle only 12 year old kids and those with 20/20 vision can tell the difference parallels. They really shouldn't give parallels serial numbers, even the cute numbered to the year the cards were issued in. ” -captkirk42

“ Can't go wrong with a gold border. Would have looked better as a Jonathan Schoop card, imo. Go Orioles!!! ” -CollectingAfterDeath

“ The gold cards are nice, but I find it annoying they go up in serial numbers every year. ” -IfbBirdsCards

“ I forgot Capuano had a stint with the Yanks until this RCOTD. Not a bad card. ” -muskie027
