Set: 2011 Topps Gypsy Queen - Mini Red Gypsy Queen Back (Rate)

Card: #13 Joey Votto

“ That may be the smallest card number in history. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Half the people love these, the other half loathe these. In this case, I'm part of the latter. What IS that on the back?! ” -vrooomed

“ A BIG pass on the Gypsy Queen sets. ” -carthage44

“ I don't like this design as much as some of the other recent Gypsy Queen mini sets. I do like the choice of picture though. Don't seem to see many pictures of a first baseman covering the bag on cards, especially from this straight-on angle. ” -switzr1

Set: 1995 SkyBox E-Motion (Rate)

Card: #13 Erik Hanson

“ Not a fan of the design. And he is concentrating on "How long are they going to make me hold this pose?" ” -switzr1

“ My local card shop had a box of the NBA release of Emotion, and I passed it up, going instead for whatever new release was new at the time. When I decided to go back and get it, it had sold out. This was 2002 or 2003. I still regret it, and I still need more than I have of the set. In fact, of all the 1994-95 NBA releases, it's the one I have the least of. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ These were very cool. Each player had a different word that described them. ” -carthage44

“ I can't find "Hanson Concentrating" in the data base. Might be rarer than Honus Wagner. ” -NJdevils

“ So having a picture of the same guy in the same motion on the back may not have been the best idea. ” -jlaz10

“ Mid-90s slop. ” -vrooomed

“ OK design only issue is it's a red sox card. ” -MAS23

“ siamese twins ” -volbox

“ I don't know anything about this set but I like what seems to be the different looks of the curveball on the front and back of the card. ” -armac

Set: 1923-24 Exhibits W461 (Rate)

Card: #21 Cliff Heathcote

“ Wow. Clean design, nice (fake?) action picture. Feels like a foggy baseball field in the middle of nowhere. ” -volbox

“ Wow...that's huge. And old. Is it really what fits the concept of a trading card, or is it something different that's included here because it's similar? I really don't know. Always cool to see old stuff though! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Why does make smile when I see a "plain" black & white card ? It shows you can have a great product without a bunch of bells & whistles. ” -uncaian

“ Nice! I want one. :) But make it a Phillie. ” -vrooomed

“ SUPER COOL!!! ” -carthage44

“ I was the starting pitcher for the Chicago Cubs in a DoubleHeader against the St. Louis Cardinals the other starter was Max Flack. In between the two games I was traded to the Cardinals for Max then I would learn I would start Game #2 the pitcher for the Cubs was Max Flack. ” -WALKIN' BASEBALL ENCYCLOPEDIA

“ In the early 20's, they experimented with a sport that combined baseball with karate. ” -bplay24

“ I like those socks! Very football-style, compared to the NFL. ” -jlaz10

“ Never heard of these, but even with a blank back...classic! Love it! ” -bkklaos

“ As old as this card is, the Cubs hadn't won a World Series for over 15 years! Great photo of a guy that was traded in the middle of a doubleheader and played for both teams that day. ” -armac

“ Look how old this card is. And think; the last time the Cubs won a World Series, Clifton Heathcote was ten years old. ” -switzr1

Set: 2001 Fleer Tradition - Lumber Company (Rate)

Card: #LC15 Chipper Jones

“ Typical early 2000s Fleer insert. Not bad, but not spectacular either. Knowing Fleer, there is a version where the circle the team logo is in is replaced by a piece of bat relic. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Future HOFer? I say yes. Not a bad design and layout for an insert card. Numbering for the set should be xxLC instead of LCxx. ” -vrooomed

“ The Lumber Company insert has been around for a while and I have always enjoyed them. ” -carthage44

“ The Braves have some of the best pant designs in the league, given that their braid goes around the belt tunnels as well. ” -jlaz10

“ I saw Chipper at a bowling alley near where I work. The alley put 2 lanes worth of special needs kids next to him. Given his reputation at the time, I expected him to immediately bolt. He signed something for every one of those kids, took a couple pictures, then bolted. I've been a fan ever since. ” -jackal726

“ Eww. Not much in the design department on this one. Looks like pulled icons out of a hat and tossed them on red construction pater and said "New design done!" ” -koloth42

Set: 1996 Upper Deck USA (Rate)

Card: #52 Reggie Miller

“ These cards were cool but the die cut bottom led to a lot of damaged cards- at least for 12 year old me. I stood my cards on end in plastic cases at the time and they would flop over sideways, making them stick out and leading to the top corners getting damaged. It never dawned on me to store them upside down, or even put them in a different box. In fact, they remained in the same plastic case until 2011, when I finally got them out of there and into the white 900 count boxes I prefer to keep the majority of my collection in. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Great to see my favorite player featured, but I HATED this set because the bottom isn't straight, so they don't stand upright in a box. Terrible idea. ” -switzr1

“ Boom, baby!! ” -cckeith

“ Only pro basketball player with skinnier arms than me. ” -NJDevils

“ One of the best pure shooters EVER! USA, USA, USA!! ” -carthage44

Set: 1996-97 Ultra (Rate)

Card: #201 Elden Campbell

“ Been a while since one of mine came up...I love this set. In my opinion 1996-97 Ultra is one of the greatest sets of all time. It looks even better in hand than in a scan. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ This is actually a pretty cool design. I kind of wish they covered up the crowd with a solid colored background though. I don't like how they're looking at me. ” -revnorb

“ Elden looks like he is passing the ball to himself in this image. ” -koloth42

“ I actually liked the "neon" lettering in these ultra sets. ” -carthage44

“ Glad to see you land another basketball scan Billy! I like it! ” -bkklaos

“ I thought the set had a great look and design, the gold medallion parallels were a fun challenge to complete the set! ” -Joshua825

“ I like the Ultra logo, and that's pretty much it. ” -volbox

Set: 1990 Star (Rate)

Card: #29 Blas Minor

“ Woo-hoo. Not my scan, but "mine". Our third series of minor league wax (we did 2 series in 1989). Possible little-known fact: There was supposed to be two series in 1990, but these did not sell well enough to warrant the second series. ” -vrooomed

“ There's no confusing a Star Company design. Aside from colors and slight text changes, Star stuck with the same single design throughout their entire existence. Pity they couldn't have put the team logo on front instead of the back, but they were all about design on the cheap. Perfect choice of player here, as this is a very blah minor league set. ” -DaClyde

“ The SEXATORS???? What kind of dinosaur was that??? ” -SFC Temple

“ Just before the Senators became an Expos farm team. A fairly bland minor league card but it has the necessary information on the back. ” -armac

“ I like the Star minor league sets. Good looking card. Blas ended up in the majors too. ” -switzr1

Set: 2008-09 O-Pee-Chee (Rate)

Card: #207 Nick Boynton

“ Wow, I look at this card and realize just how long ago it was that he played his junior hockey with the Ottawa 67s. ” -armac

“ Really like this set. I had commented in the past how I didn't care for the card back, but now that I have some in my collection, that's a different story. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Very nice card. Good photo. Again, looks like they forgot the color ink cartridge on the back. ” -NJdevils

“ Oh Canada! ” -carthage44

“ Nice standard hockey look. Hope it's on nice card stock. ” -vrooomed

“ I like this set overall,two things though no write up on back & way too many cards ” -uncaian

“ Shouldn't the brand logo be smaller than the player name and team name? Just my opinion I guess. ” -cckeith

“ I like most of this card. Not too flashy. Nice design. I like that his head extends beyond the border. But I wish the OPC wasn't bigger than his name. This really detracts from the appearance of the card. ” -switzr1

“ This would be a nice looking card if it wasn't for the huge OPC logo and the bare bones design on the reverse. ” -Id8jlb8666

Set: 2013 Grandstand Lake County Captains (Rate)

Card: #NNO Erik Gonzalez

“ Nice looking Minor League card. I approve. ” -switzr1

“ Another minor league card that is as good or better than major league issues. Excellent photo! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Don't think you can get a better "action" shot than this! I like it! ” -bkklaos

“ 2008 Upper Deck front, 2012 Topps back. Borrowed design but nice photo. Looks halfway decent for a minor league card. ” -Id8jlb8666

“ This was ALMOST an outstanding action shot. ” -SFC Temple

“ Is the field shrouded in fog or what? Other than that, this is one of the best action shots for a minor league card I've ever seen. ” -mkaz80

“ Nice minor league card. Looks like they just copied Topps. ” -carthage44

“ I guess people who don't like horizontal cards can just tip this one sideways? ” -revnorb

“ Wow! A baseball player figured out how to play and imitate Michael Jordan doing a Superman dunk at the same time. ” -koloth42

“ Great photo! Nice looking card. ” -armac

Set: 2009 Bowman Draft Picks (Rate)

Card: #63 Ricky Williams

“ These cards have a neat feel to them in hand. The front is glossy but the back is not, it's unusual but I like it. I was given about a dozen of them in January. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I loved watching Ricky Williams play, his running style. If he had stayed sober and focused mentally I think he would have been one of the all time greats. As for the card: too much border. ” -Id8jlb8666

“ If Cheech & Chong designed a limited edition Ricky Williams card, that would be awesome. ” -revnorb

“ EAGLE fans wanted him in the worst way ... ended up with McNabb ... poor Donovan got booed out of MSG. ~BOB~ ” -BOBSCARDZ

“ Ricky could have been one of the best but he just couldn't put down the reefer. ” -carthage44

“ Very unappealing back. Hopefully, in person, it is a lot easier to read the front. ” -NJDevils

“ A bit too much border but a nice action shot. Overall I like this card design. ” -koloth42

“ Say what you may about the guy but he still had a 10,000 yard rushing career. Not too many RBs can say that. ” -armac
