Set: 2007-08 Fleer (Rate)

Card: #128 Kevin Garnett

“ I miss KG. He was the last player to retire that was active when I discovered the game- he was a rookie then. Glad he finally got a ring, with the Celtics. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ The black background seems to make Mr. Garnett a tad more menacing than might be the case otherwise. Fairly basic border and back, but that is not a criticism. I actually like this card. Coming from someone whose interest in basketball is minimal (at best) that is probably praise. ” -John Kerry

“ I like this card. It looks like an early 90's feel not a late 00's. Very simple but checks all the bases for me except how do you cut off an elbow in a posed photo? Besides that minor infraction it would be a perfect card. ” -davidhandberry

“ As much as I love this version of the Celtics, the KG-era of Boston basketball will always be front and center in this fan's heart. I was too young to truly appreciate the original Big Three era of Bird, Chief and McHale, so KG, Pierce, Ray and Rondo were my guys. Love this card, by the way. A vintage Fleer look and feel to this one. Go Celtics! ” -mkaz80

“ Cool looking Basketball card. Ah Fleer Cool. Might have to actively look for some of these. At least the Wizards from them. ” -captkirk42

“ Hmm, I wasn’t collecting at this point, but I really like the look of this card. Also, it is always nice to see a stud star on the RCOTD. I’d love to go back and get some of this set. ” -muskie027

“ Nice pose, nice card. Good job updating team picture, you don't see that much in the 2005-2006 baseball sets. I like the logo in the bottom right. If more cards had that, I'd be sold. But if only it were baseball... ” -Kirbythedodger

“ Is it just me, or does this make KG look really skinny? Geez man, go eat a sandwich!! ” -FiresNBeers

Set: 2018 Score - NFL Draft Red (Rate)

Card: #22 Courtland Sutton

“ To flashy takes away from the player ” -mrmike

“ Background is way too busy. It looks like someone's bad LSD trip.The border isn't much better. The picture is fine and the back is okay. ” -John Kerry

“ I don't get it at all when a pro draft card doesn't tell you who drafted the person. Seems like a basic thing to me. I had to look him up to find out that he was with the Denver Broncos. It is strange that his logo won't change much going from the Mustangs to the Broncos. ” -davidhandberry

“ It's very red. Very red. ” -muskie027

Set: 2004-05 Pacific (Rate)

Card: #153 Marek Zidlicky

“ I really hope they do not have another lockout in 2020. The last three, didn't really affect me as I hadn't yet become a fan of the sport. Now, it's a part of every day of my life, and I don't want to give any up. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ It could be my computer but he looks like he has a rash on the lower part of his face. Not too sure about the look on his face either. ” -John Kerry

“ Well its hockey at least. The front is pretty boring and the photo content is brutal. Way too busy, and the mustard ..... ah yes the Preds interesting mustard jerseys. The back is equally boring. I give it a D at best. =( ” -ranfordfan

“ Another Pacific Card I like. This really was a nice company. ” -muskie027

“ Nice looking card. Everything is solid. Nothing exceptional but nothing to penalize either. ” -davidhandberry

“ They don't come more boring than this card. Zidlicky was a decent player. ” -NJDevils

“ Not a bad looking hockey card. ” -parsley24

“ i thought pacific folded in 2002 but they must have just lost there nfl liscence then, my favorite part about the circle on the back with the card number and set always made for easy identification ” -Thunderfoot

“ Nice Pacific Hockey. Not a fan of the silver foil but I can make most of it out. Looks to be a rookie card. Guess this was just before they started going nuts with the "Rookie" labels for RCs. ” -captkirk42

“ Pacific for the win ” -switzr1

Set: 2001 Topps Heritage (Rate)

Card: #80 Charlie Garner

“ This card shows the problem with football. Once the helmet is you can't tell what the person looks like. Other than that not a bad card. Very nice action shot. Card hearkens back to a simpler time for football cards. Not a football fan but I wouldn't object to having this card. ” -John Kerry

“ I don't know enough about football to know what this is throwing back to- just a guess, late 50s- (yes I know I could look it up without leaving this website) but I like it. I pretty much like all throwback sets. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I know it is supposed to look like old football cards but it just comes across very blah to me. ” -davidhandberry

“ Nice Heritage card. I have always loved this design 1956? Just searched and Yep the '56 design. This is a fun card for team collectors. I know for the database purposes it is a Raiders card, and some Raiders collectors would agree, but some collectors go by the uniform only and see it was a 49ers card. The problem with going by uniform is sometimes it is difficult to determine the team if you are not familiar with the player. ” -captkirk42

“ i love this look on this set. Fantastic use of the heritage set. ” -parsley24

“ I hate hate HATE cards that show a guy wearing a jersey different than that of the team name and logo depicted on the card. Drives my OCD into overdrive. (P.S. the note along the right edge of the card does very little to help the situation) ” -mkaz80

“ i always liked the heritage sets, i think part of it was the thicker non glossy stock ” -Thunderfoot

“ It's ok. Might look better if he was wearing a Raider uniform or if there was a 49er logo and a "signed with Oakland" stripe. This just looks confusing. ” -muskie027

Set: 2014 Topps Museum Collection - Canvas Collection (Rate)

Card: #CCR-9 Robinson Cano

“ Putting the name of the set and of the insert series in black ink on dark backgrounds does nit strike as the smartest idea anyone ever had. Aside from that I actually like it. Very nice portrait and a background that doesn't subtract from it. Nice one to own. ” -John Kerry

“ Not bad. I would take it. ” -switzr1

“ I am not a fan of this card. Also, Cano always looos weird outside of his pin stripes. He especially looks weird in this artist rendition card. ” -muskie027

“ Nice insert set for a mid to high end set. ” -captkirk42

“ I definitely prefer the UD hockey canvas collection cards to this ” -rmitchell6700

“ Like the set but not a PED user. ” -KMack

Set: 2003 Fleer WWE WrestleMania XIX (Rate)

Card: #11 D'Lo Brown

“ You better recognize...this is a cool card. I've always felt D'Lo was very underrated. ” -switzr1

“ The front looks like it is from the late 80's and the back looks like late 90's to me. I like the borderless look on the front but could use something more. The back is blah but I don't know what stats or information you can do for wrestling, maybe height, weight birthplace, etc. ” -davidhandberry

“ a.) nice boots! b.) other dude's face could not be more jammed up in Mr. Brown's armpit and that just cant be good. ” -jamestagli

“ Wrastlin card with cool maneuver/action shot. At first glance I didn't see the guy who is being pulverized, thought maybe he was out cold on the ma already. ” -captkirk42

“ Mr. Brown is probably best known for billing himself as being from a different European city each time he defended the WWE's short-lived European Title.Pretty good action sshot of D'Lo delivering his finisher. No idea who the victim is. ” -John Kerry

Set: 1998 Pinnacle Plus - Yardwork (Rate)

Card: #4 Nomar Garciaparra

“ The action shot I like, the background I don't. As for the name of this insert set, when I see the name yardwork I think of gardening and mowing the lawn. Not sure if a card of a ballplayer pruning the roses would be a hit but it is what I would expect to see. ” -John Kerry

“ I like the front, very late 90's look to it. The back though is very basic even for a insert card. I can't see a Nomar card without a thick Boston accent in my head saying Nooma. ” -davidhandberry

“ Insert set not sure what it is celebrating. Nice looking late 1990s card. ” -captkirk42

“ i forgot how big nomar's nose was/is. a true italian schnozzola there. ” -jamestagli

“ Looks like the picture was taken in an office and through the window that has window blinds open, you can see the field. Then they just edited out any of the stuff in the office. I don’t like it. ” -muskie027

“ Average looking card with a funny set name. "Yard Work", I am assuming means hitting home runs, and not helping the grounds crew chalk the running lane between bags. 8o) ” -CollectingAfterDeath

“ The late '90s gave us a flurry of innovative, colorful and attractive cards and concepts. This ain't one of them. Unmemorable, uninspired, and busy for no apparent reason. ” -mkaz80

“ Is it possible to have double digit homers without double digit RBIs? ” -switzr1

“ Terrible set... ” -KMack

Set: 1990 Bowman - Tiffany (Rate)

Card: #215 Garry Templeton

“ Tiffany is cool. The return of the Bowman brand was cool, but the designs were somewhat boring. ” -muskie027

“ Garry, you dont look happy, whats wrong? ” -jamestagli

“ Bowman 2nd year of reboot? Tiffany version. Back in the day I thought it was cool to have a glossy version of the set. That was before the parallel set craze was a thing though. Now I dread most parallel sets. It is difficult enough to complete the flagship base set, let along the dozens of parallels they issue nowdays. I can no longer call myself a set collector. I guess I'm just a homie team collector now days. ” -captkirk42

“ Glad to see one of these finally up. I love the rainbow design... ” -Kirbythedodger

“ Great set. The name and team could be a tiny bit larger than 8 pt font tho. ” -parsley24

“ Good shortstop who brought the Cardinals a great shortstop. And to many, that's all he will ever be remembered for. Oh, that and pulling an Earl Thomas before Earl Thomas was cool. ” -switzr1

“ I know people mostly flame this set, but I will forever have a soft spot for '90 Bowman. Grabbing a cheap factory set is on my perpetual 'To Do' list. ” -mkaz80

“ Forever known as the short end of the Ozzie Smith trade ” -IfbBirdsCards

Set: 2003 Upper Deck Finite (Rate)

Card: #105 Trent Green

“ I think someone could be forgiven if they thought the player's name was Major Factors, given that it is the most dominant writing on the front. The shot of the player is quite good, the background not so much. Not really impressed with this one. ” -John Kerry

“ Very underrated QB. A so-so card, but not bad. ” -muskie027

“ Somebody just got their first computer graphic software and went crazy with it. Take away the crazy background and the front looks good. The back, same thing. This is one of those incidents where less would definitely be more. ” -davidhandberry

“ I'm a big fan of REASONABLY limited print cards like this one, and a big fan of Trent Green. But not of this card, I'm afraid. Too much wasted space and this fractal pattern is more distracting than beneficial in my opinion. ” -kents_stuff

“ There is a lot to not like about this card. The design is busy. There little information on the card. I like cards with stats and interesting little tidbits of information. ” -kirkscards

Set: 1994 Action Packed - Prototypes (Rate)

Card: #3R94S Jeff Gordon

“ Ummmm...did he just eat an ice cream cone? ” -switzr1

“ Not sure why but this card just doesn't look right. ” -John Kerry

“ 1994 Action Packed is my favorite NASCAR set ever, but they sure do scan terribly. The entire background is gold foil in a checkered flag pattern, and the embossed nature of the card makes weird white lines show up in strange places, usually on the face, due to the scanner's light reflecting oddly. The card image is from victory lane of the first of Jeff's 93 Cup wins, 3rd most all time. Unfortunately I didn't get to see it due to it being on TBS, which we didn't get until around 1999. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I don't collect racing but remember Action Packed from baseball and football and I liked them. They were one of the first cards that I remember to use computer generated backgrounds and do all the 90's graphics. This card looks odd but I believe it's because the foil and graphics don't scan well. ” -davidhandberry

“ Odd shading and reflections, or else my monitor is doing funny things with this card. ” -kents_stuff

“ Didnt know ben shapiro had a card. Very cool. ” -parsley24

“ Action Packed for any sport I don't like the print on one side of medium thickness cardboard and fold it into a card style that they did. Foil letter does not scan these 50+ year old eyes can't read a damn thing on the front except "Dupont" on the driver's jacket and "Coca-Cola 600" on the hat. "Charl...." (Charlotte?) at the top and Action Packed in bottom left. Yes yes I know back in the 1990s card companies didn't think about how the chrome and foil lettering would "photograph" (or "scan") they just wanted something that looked flashy and were testing new technologies for cards. ” -captkirk42

“ action packed oh how i miss you... ” -Thunderfoot
