Set: 2017 Topps Star Wars Rogue One Series 2 - Movie Posters (Rate)

Card: #NNO Director Krennic Character Poster

“ Movie poster into a design is usually cool, but just a head (even with the Death Star blueprints projected on said face) isn't. Great actor, good character and I enjoyed Rogue One. ” -ShoTime

“ Not worthy of the coincidence list, but within a week or so, the podcast Star Wars Minute [discusses a minute of each of the Star Wars feature film releases in one episode of their podcasts] will begin their coverage of Rogue One. ” -stevejrogers

“ Nice Non-Sport card. ” -captkirk42

“ Welcome to more of the endless milking of 1 great movie Star Wars, obviously they never drew the line at 1 nor 2 or 3 ” -baseballcardstoreca

“ That is one great looking photo. I have never collected non sports cards but if I ever did Star Wars would probably be high up on my list and this card is one of that might sway me someday to sojourn into that space (pun intended). ” -davidhandberry

Set: 2008 Bowman Draft Picks & Prospects - Gold (Rate)

Card: #BDP23 Eric Hurley

“ I like the look of the front of Bowman cards and then it dies because I know this is one of probably a dozen parallels. Knowing that most of the "prospects" aren't going to amount to anything. Also I know when I turn it over it's going to be a hideous Bowman back. Please Topps take Bowman and try something new. I used to love the Bowman sets in the the early 90's. ” -davidhandberry

“ I am not a fan of these bowman cards. i know i like simple designs, but bruh.... ” -parsley24

“ His name is Hurley and he hurls fastballs. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ OK we just had a Bowman card as the Random Card of the Day.This one is marked with the Rookie Card logo indicating a Rookie. Front is OK I guess the design is kind to the image with the ball still in frame at the top pretty cool action shot. team logo would be nice but whatevers. Personally I think the player's name should be a little bigger than the team name but again whatevers. back is nice and in this case only one year of stats are OK for a rookie, however adding minor league stats would be nice as well. ” -captkirk42

“ I have no idea who this is. I guess Hurley wasn't a very effective hurler. ” -beansballcardblog

“ Blah! ” -Coccia

“ Dear Topps , please stop making these types of cards where we pay good $$ for low quality, easily chipped colors/borders especially after that 2007 remake of 1971. I just want mint cards!!! ” -baseballcardstoreca

Set: 2003 Bowman Draft Picks & Prospects - Gold (Rate)

Card: #BDP13 Lyle Overbay

“ Nice card front but I never have cared for Bowman backs. ” -davidhandberry

“ not too bad of a design. The back is clean and fresh. ” -parsley24

“ I will let others complain about the numbering of Bowman as I have done that enough. ” -NJDevils

“ 2000s Bowman drives me nutty with the BDP numbering. It took me 10+ years to figure out that the DP numbers were Draft Prospects. I still can't find some players easily are they Rookies or Minor League prospects that haven't even played a single game are they in the BDP list or the BDPP list? or BDDP or the regular base set without all the letters? Why does one crumby set have 4 or 5 Extended Sets? OK back to the look of the card the front design is OK but missing team name, team logo would be nice. Back Needs more years of stats OK if these guys are rookies then give their college stats Don't like the back picture. ” -captkirk42

“ Overbay was a solid player. ” -Tylergallo

“ He had a couple decent years. Card is ok. ” -muskie027

“ Honestly a pretty cool action shot. Really like the signature box and how it wraps around the 1B. ” -Athletics37

Set: 1968 Topps (Rate)

Card: #38 Ralph Baker

“ This almost looks like a painting. It decent looking for it's time but still a lackluster front to me. Has all the info you want but nothing that stands out. The back though is the complete opposite. I loved the cartoons back in the day and getting a bit more knowledge about the player. It is funny to imagine today that professional athletes had to have side jobs only a little over 50 years ago. Now that would be unthinkable even for most minor leaguers. ” -davidhandberry

“ Oh man that is sweet. The New York Jets Green uniform in its full glory, great vintage card. ” -alessandro11

“ Love the vintage cards !! ” -uncaian

“ Love it! ” -NJDevils

“ Great set... Great card ” -parsley24

“ Nice Vintage Football. Typical pose for this pose. ” -kirkscards

“ Love REAL vintage. I also like the modern retro cards but vintage is 1,000s of times better. Ralphie Boy. Love the cartoon on the back. Also love that it mentions his off-season job. Back in the day players were NOT millionaires and had to take on a second job to make ends meet. ” -captkirk42

“ Good scan. The 1960s--terrible, terrible cards. Fun to collect but ugly. ” -cjjt

“ The front is great. Classic. Clearly can read player name, team and position as it should be. The back is just ok. I like statistics by year. Overall, a great classic card. ” -BSwagger

Set: 2008 JOGO - Rookies (Rate)

Card: #14-R Jamal Robertson

“ Never heard of JOGO before but this is a nice looking set. I like the front border, nice action shot. Wish it had the team name and position but besides that it is very well done. The back is near perfection for a football card. I know many will hate not having stats but in football where every position is different I don't mind it as much. ” -davidhandberry

“ That's a very art deco styled font for his name and jersey. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Not a good idea to work on the name font after having a liquid lunch ” -NJDevils

“ Nice card. Haven't seen it since it is CFL card. I sort of recall hearing the name/brand JOGO perhaps from seeing some here in the database. ” -captkirk42

“ Never heard of JOGO, but this is a decent card. ” -muskie027

“ CFL! Awesome! ” -rmpaq5

“ Never a big Canadian Football Fan just reminded me of organised High School Football. Canadian Football Cards some are very rare. Warren Moon's Rookie is one of my favorite Canadian pieces and also one of the hardest to get a solid grade on it took 4 years to get an 8 and just last year I received my order from PSA and to my delight a 10! I turned a $8.00 Raw Rookie into a card that fetch upwards of $16,000.00 to $22,000.00!!! Now I know his 85 Topps in a PSA 10 can fetch upwards of $37,000.00 to $64,000.00 according to 1/1 Cards & Coins. I am still in shock because it is by far the most expensive card I have ever owned. God Bless ” -The House Of Cards

Set: 2011 Leaf Muhammad Ali (Rate)

Card: #23 Muhammad Ali

“ Don't see boxing come up very often. And a major superstar at that. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ This is awesome! Nice to get a boxing card of a legend. This would be better in landscaper so you get the full shot of Norton in there too. ” -muskie027

“ Great picture. ” -kirkscards

“ They couldn't find a card of Ali where he wasn't getting hit? ” -davidhandberry

“ GREAT PHOTO ” -parsley24

“ Looks like Ali is walking into that punch. ” -captkirk42

“ You walked right into that fist! I like the photo, but the card screams "crappy new Leaf company". I don't like anything they are doing. They make a card 35 years later and don't even bother to mention who won this fight on the card. That's pretty much a useless card, IMO. ” -spazmatastic

Set: 1991-92 Ultimate Original 6 (Rate)

Card: #23 Harry Howell

“ I love when original players get cards like these. Wish another set would come again soon. ” -Mscott713

“ I really like the back of this card. The front isn't too bad either. ” -jupiterhill

“ Decent action photo and front design. I could do without the entire top half of the back though. Show more season stats and I'd be real happy with this card. However, since this was a long retired played and HOFer at the time, I guess the info on the back works overall. That newpaper-styled top half could have been better utilized without pretending it was a newspaper though. ” -spazmatastic

“ One of the legends of my team. Sadly he passed away earlier in 2019. This set is a cool concept. It appears that for the NHL's 75th Anniversary they had an alumni game, and the players in this set are those that turned out for that game...I think that's the case anyway. The fronts are all period photos and the backs are current (1991-92 current) photos of the players in gear. I suspect it was a Legends game and not just them in old gear because some of the designs appear to be unique...I would appreciate it if someone could confirm or deny my theory. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ The front is very basic. The back I like, very unusual. I find it kind of sad that a company I have never heard of has more creativity than the biggest card brand. ” -davidhandberry

“ Although I do not collect hockey cards, I love this card and the set. It just seems refreshing and clean. I don't know if there is anything to criticize. The back is great, especially with the faux newspaper presentation, presenting info as a "story." Only criticism would be the "peeling" of the page in the lower left corner. That doesn't seem to really add anything worthwhile to the design, and it would probably look better as a full picture. ” -georgecf

“ Reminds me of Upper Deck from around then. Hmm... Front team logo or name would be nice. OK he is shown in Rangers Uniform, position? Back might show that stuff...Back I don't like the newspaper look, too small of a stat section. Overall OK not great. ” -captkirk42

“ A card from a set that got lost in the many early 90's releases. It never caught on with collectors at the time and a set can likely still be had for a couple of bucks, or if you prefer, a french version exists as well! ” -baseballcardstoreca

“ One of my favorite sets ,nice to see the original six get some recognition. ” -uncaian

“ Cool concept for a set! ” -muskie027

Set: 2012 Topps Chrome - Orange Refractors (Rate)

Card: #148 Johnny Cueto

“ Neat photo. And being a Refractor means it's awesome no matter what. ” -Billy Kingsley
“ This card exemplifies why I hate Topps. If my count is right (many cards don't have pictures, so I am assuming that for example the Topps Wood card listed under this card is the same picture). If my count is correct there are 46 parallels of this one design. This includes the base set and base set parallels, the Chrome and Chrome parallels and the mini and the mini parallels. There is no reason to have 46 cards that are basically the same with only minor tweaks. Also 46 would be plenty of cards for one player, for one year, in my opinion. Topps though if you include Bowman which is also owned by Topps created 199 cards of Johnny Cueto in 2012 alone. All other companies combined for 17 cards of him that year. Sorry about the novel. ” -davidhandberry

“ Very nice parallel, even though I don't like Chrome or refractors. ” -captkirk42

“ Still the last player to throw a complete game in the World Series, as a Royal. ” -vanstryland

“ More of Topps being Topps. Refractors AGAIN !! That's how many years now and counting? Looks like they follow many a Hollywood script by lacking originality. Much like the show this on-going theme is walking dead! ” -baseballcardstoreca

Set: 1997 Ultra (Rate)

Card: #524 Mike Jackson

“ My favorite design in history of cards! Used in 5 sports, it's just perfection to me. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ One of my favorite designs but one of the first sets that I recall collecting that had multiple parallels. ” -davidhandberry

“ No borders and full stats on back are always a huge plus. Excellent quality card stock, too bad that companies like Fleer and Pacific are no longer around and MLB decided that a monopoly is the way the baseball card world should go. ” -baseballcardstoreca

“ the way the stats have the glow effect from behind is awful. but the card overall is pretty good. ” -parsley24

“ i like these action shots of pitchers. to see their arms twist and bend like rubber bands.. pretty awesome ” -tonym

“ " 'Cause this is THRILLER Thriller Night..." Oh wait wrong Mike Jackson. Hehehe. Love Ultra this set used to be one of those exceptions that I "hated it" probably due to the foiling on the stylized name. Also didn't like the stylizing on the name. Like those elements now. Not thrilled with the background image on the back I feel that backs should have a plain background not a photo background. Good that there is a full stats but needs more than just that some wasted space at top that could use player's vitals, or at least some brief career highlights. ” -captkirk42

“ Nice card. 3 different pictures. Lots of stats. ” -cjjt

“ Ultra had some really cool sets I missed out on. ” -muskie027

Set: 1996 Playoff Prime (Rate)

Card: #073 Gus Frerotte

“ These cards have an interesting metallic like sheen on them, unlike any other card sets I've seen. Thankfully they scan pretty well, unlike most cards with any special features like that. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ No borders always a huge plus ! Numbering is silly 073 really ? Nice solid card stock , not flimsy, with a nice finish.Room for more stats on back. ” -baseballcardstoreca

“ Heisman winner gus frerotte ” -parsley24

“ I wish the front had the team name and position and that the name wasn't vertical. The back is nice looking but I wish the helmet was off. ” -davidhandberry

“ The photos are pretty good. At the same time, it needs more stats on the bank. Also, if your text on the back is about the "air bus" maybe the photos shouldn't be of him running without the football or handing it off. Just a thought. And make the playoff prime logo smaller. ” -vanstryland

“ Nice mid 90s card. Very simple. Front OK player name should not be vertical, team name and logo would be nice. Back OK but only one year of stats. Cool that it is a Redskin, Gus Frerotte (Hmm forgot that he spelled his name with that "r" after the "F") a player often forgotten, not as quickly as some of the QBs the Skins had in the 1980s and 90s, but still didn't solve their age old problem at QB. I probably have this card somewhere, maybe. ” -captkirk42

“ Very sharp looking card. I like it a lot even though I don't like the sideways name and the giant Playoff Prime logo. It still just looks real nice. Gives Frerotte a 3D look. ” -muskie027
