Random Card of the Day

Tuesday, March 6, 2018

Year: 2000

Set: Pacific Omega - Platinum Blue (Rate)

Card: #133 Mike Alstott

“ Good photo, decent design...but is this a blue just because the company logo and text is bluish? If that is case kind of lame. ” -rmpaq5

“ SN51? How unusual. Of course, Pacific liked doing the unusual. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Not a bad front design. Only thing I'd change would be putting the team name in black instead of white. The back could look so much better though. There's a lot of wasted space on the right side of the card. All of that info could have been put in the top-right, the written info could run across the card and there would have been more room for some stats. ” -spazmatastic

“ I don't collect football, and I only occasionally watch it except in the late playoffs, but there's something about this card that strikes me as very appealing. I do like the old Pacific Platinum Blue inserts in any case. ” -NYMHall

“ I like this card. The border is nice and it has a great action shot. The back, I know people will complain about having just a year in stats but with football stats aren't as big of a deal as baseball and basketball in my opinion. ” -davidhandberry

“ Being a former fullback, Alstott is one of my favorite players of all-time! ” -carthage44

“ Fun player to watch; Pacific cards are not fun to look at. ” -cnangle

“ At first I thought I didn't like it, but as I keep looking, the front is kind of cool. The back is ok too, but needs more stats. ” -muskie027

“ Ohhhh...one of my favorite football players in the history of the universe. Great card. I love it! (Even if it doesn't look blue to me). Pacific was so awesome despite the color parallels. ” -switzr1

“ I like, well sort of still like, Pacific products. I of course dislike the overuse of foil for everything and in the case of this parallel apparently it is the color foil or lack of color in the foil that makes these parallels. UGH. Design is OK but as I have said many times not a fan of foil lettering. Back is OK but it says 4 years totals and shows just the total from those 4 years not the individual years. UGH one year of stats or technically just the career line of stats. ” -captkirk42

“ I love these running backs.....those that put a hurt on the linebacker. FULL truck mode!!! ” -RoyalChief

Aww, I missed one of my favorite players of all time on RCOTD!  I wasn't aware so many others liked him too.  When I first got into football I rooted for my local team the Chiefs, but I also found a couple of the worst teams in the league to root for.  One was the Patriots, who after a while (thanks to Drew Bledsoe) got better and I stopped rooting for them.  The other was the Buccaneers because, well, who could root against a team wearing creamsicle orange?  I rooted for them for over a decade, and finally they made it to the Super Bowl, and they won.  A large reason I kept rooting for them was Alstott.  After they won the Super Bowl I started to lose interest in the team (and for a short while sports in general), but I still rooted for Alstott.  After he retired, I rooted for them less, until a few years ago when they were just awful and they decided to get new uniforms which I didn't like either, so I was able to make a clean break from them.  But those Alstott years were some of my favorite.

As for this card, I don't have it, but I don't really like the design, which is odd since I liked a lot of the Paramount sets.  Even though, I wouldn't mind adding this and a few more Alstott cards to my collection.  I remember the first thing I searched for on Ebay when I signed up for an account was Mike Alstott cards.
