Random Card of the Day

Year: 2002

Set: Fleer Authentix (Rate)

Card: #9 Adam Dunn


“ OK looking card, but I would probably like it more if the whole ticket stub think hadn't been so completely overdone now. This was probably one of the first sets to use that gimmick. And having the player cover the logo makes the logo seem pointless. ” -switzr1

“ I really loved the concept of the Fleer Authentix sets when they were new, now not so much. But I am still trying to complete the NBA sets. And this post if my tablet doesn't turn itself when I am trying to type! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Loved this guy until he came to the White Sox and was garbage. ” -carthage44

“ They used a logo that I believe typifies baseball with the ending letter swirled underline. It's a beautifully designed card reminiscent of early Topps/Bowman cards but with a pleasant color scheme. As for Dunn, he belongs with all the other '90s-present all-or-nothing players that fill many MLB squads. ” -Sportzcommish

“ I always like this design. ” -cjjt

“ Cool concept, but only an ok card. I am not a fan of only current year and career stats, I like the entire kit and caboodle. I was never a fan of the quantity of sets each company was putting out back then. ” -muskie027

Missed this one. Was on a day I didn't check the site at all. Adam Dunn was a much needed bat for the Nats when he was with them. I only wish they had kept him around for another couple of seasons. The problem was he wasn't great in the field so he was due to go American League and DH.

Dunn was an underachiever.   If only he could have struck out one more time,  Reynolds would never have passed him for most K's in a season.   With batting averages like his, his last 4 years should have been in AAA.

Love the design of this set. Unique, and the textured feel is something I enjoy.
