Set: 1993 Pinnacle (Rate)

Card: #349 Eric Dickerson

“ Wait...Eric Dickerson played for the Raiders at one point? I have no memories of this and just minutes ago I finished watching the show "Timeless" on Netflix. Paranoia kicking in. ” -rmpaq5

“ I loved the '93 Pinnacle cards in MLB and NFL when they first came out. Great photography, nice design and tons of info on them. But they didn't hold up to time well. The black borders chip and fray easily. Nothing else bad to say about these cards. More stat-lines on the back would have been nice, but it would have taken away so much info from them. ” -spazmatastic

“ One of my favorite sets. A very simple design with great photography. The cards are stunning if the black borders are clean. Although the stats on back are lacking, the head shots are great. ” -Big Ray

“ Love this set in baseball. A bit annoyed now to see that they used the same layout for the football set as well. I think it is lazy to have the same exact layout across multiple sports. ” -davidhandberry

“ Great back, terrible sideline reporter. I heard a joke once that Dickerson never met a sideline he didn't like (a jab at his propensity to avoid taking hits) until he was assigned there as a reporter. ” -Brimose

“ Not bad for a pinnacle ” -parsley24

“ A great player, but I've never been a fan of Pinnacle. ” -Jd_sports

“ I took a 12 year hiatus from collecting, and it was this set that caused me to do it. I paid (at that time) a lot of money for a box, and it had none of the 'guaranteed' inserts or special cards...nothing but commons. I didn't like the changes in the hobby at the time, and this was the straw that broke the camel's back. Luckily I came back years later, but I still don't buy boxes unless it's a cheap blaster. ” -DocOso

“ Solid card. ” -cjjt

“ Man o Man Mr. Dickerson will ALWAYS be a RAM in my eyes. and this 1992, er 1993 Pinnacle card if I don't already have I should cause he is one of my PC HOF guys. BTW I have always had a love/hate about the black bordered 1992 and '93 Pinnacle sets. Backs put too much emphasis on the profile photo and limit stats to one year. ” -captkirk42

“ I did not remember that Dickerson ever played for the Raiders. Also played 4 games for the Falcons. ” -vanstryland

“ For some strange reason I liked these. ” -NJDevils

“ TIL Dickerson was on the Raiders. ” -royals

“ I forgot he played for Oakland. I like Pinnacle's initial year. Not this one so much. ” -muskie027

Set: 1989 Topps Batman - Complete Collector's Edition (Rate)

Card: #192 Friends and Lovers

“ First trading cards were this set and I'm betting I'm not alone. ” -ShoTime

“ This set...and movie...are not that great, but integral to my card collecting life. Some of my earliest memories are of these cards. I know I have more somewhere in my storage unit, but I fear for their condition. The factory set, which this came from and I uploaded, is not actually in my collection...these cards belong to my brother, who got me started in the hobby and read me my first comic book at only five days old...a hobby I've never left, and contribute a great deal of my lexicon, love for science and reading towards. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I remember the 1989 Batman set and getting packs of them back then. I don't remember there being a "Complete Collector's Edition" though. The photos were pretty good and the type on the back was as well. But that bright yellow border, yuck! Maybe that's where the 1991 Fleer design came from?! I've just got to say this... Keaton is still my favorite movie Batman. ” -spazmatastic

“ I like the front border but the photo looks washed out. The back is great. I am a big fan of Batman, especially Michael Keaton's so this card is a plus for me but still can't bring myself to collect non sports cards. ” -davidhandberry

“ The best Batman movie ever made. ” -Brimose

“ Topps movie cards from the '80s....it doesn't get much better! ” -mkaz80

Set: 2016 Panini Certified - Mirror Purple (Rate)

Card: #72 Harry Gant

“ Nice looking front. The Immortals title should have been darker so it doesn't fade out but besides that the front is good. The back is boring. The paragraph should have been bigger and longer, or some stats or something. The Certified logo shouldn't be so large. ” -davidhandberry

“ The purple parallel seems like a terrible color for this card. Also, the back is really boring. It could really use some stats or a picture of his full car...something. ” -vanstryland

“ At first glance I thought this was an older card until I saw the date, manufacturer and the obvious Certified brand logo ” -captkirk42

“ He was one of the most debonair drivers to ever step foot in a stock car...well-liked and respected by drivers and fans alike. I'm a bit surprised Panini didn't Photoshop the Skoal Bandit off of his helmet though. ” -DocOso

“ Nice photo. Good to see an in-car shot. ” -NJDevils

Set: 1997 Topps (Rate)

Card: #245 Sandy Alomar Jr.

“ Topps with a white border? Color me shocked. At least the back is pretty good but the front is as boring as most years of Topps. ” -davidhandberry

“ I usually prefer vertical cards to horizontal, but this one works great in horizontal form...would not worked as well vertical. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Love Sandy Alomar Jr. One of my favorite players. Should get a shot managing. ” -kirkscards

“ I am assuming this picture was taken in practice as their is no one from the opponents team on the field...lol ” -SandersFan

“ Had the name been horizontal this would have been an excellent card. ” -NJDevils

“ I don't mind the card completely...i just wish they would stop with the sideways pics. It's hard enough storing them in a binder, but when they flip and flop back and forth, it gets annoying. ” -FiresNBeers

“ Fine card. Good action shot. ” -cjjt

“ Ah late 1990s when Topps looks like Upper Deck. ” -captkirk42

Set: 2019 Topps Pro Debut - MiLB Leaps and Bounds (Rate)

Card: #LB-MA Miguel Amaya

“ It's ok. It would be better without the distorted background. ” -muskie027

“ The farthest west I've ever been in my life was South Bend, Indiana. I went there for the Studebaker National Museum. Has nothing to do with the card, but it's pretty rare to see a team based out of some place I've been. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I just wish Topps would be more creative. They spent almost 10 years with the same white border, then went borderless and almost every set since has looked similar to the year before and the other sets in their arsenal. The back I wish had some stats or biographical info, instead of just a paragraph blown up to take over the whole area. ” -davidhandberry

“ Do not like the blurry background otherwise a very nice card. ” -NJDevils

Set: 1990 Leaf (Rate)

Card: #354 Don Slaught

“ Don Slaught sounds like the alter ego of a superhero/supervillain named "Onslaught". ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Another set that hasn't aged well for me. I remember this set as one of the first "premium" sets that came out, meaning that it was supposed to be nicer than Donruss. Just like Topps came out with Stadium club and Fleer came out with Ultra. I remember really liking this set but as my taste have evolved, it is too much of a copy of Upper Deck and very boring. I like the back, though I wish it didn't have those boxes next to the picture. ” -davidhandberry

“ Too much white on the front. ” -kirkscards

“ Ahh back in the day when this was considered a premium set. ” -YoRicha

“ The Onslaught of Don Slaught continues... ” -royals

Set: 1998 Studio - Silver Studio Proofs (Rate)

Card: #215 Jeff Bagwell

“ I'm a big fan of checklists. Wish they still existed beyond just two sets. (UD's hockey flagship and OPC). I like them better when both sides are checklist but at this point I'd take anything I could get. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Very nice insert from an era when we didn't get parallel-ized like today. Would have hit 75 dingers with todays juicy balls. ” -baseballcardstoreca

“ Nice looking card front, wasted, because it has a checklist on the back. This is one of the best card fronts I have seen in a while, even with the whitish border. ” -davidhandberry

“ Studio made it 8 years. I thought the 1993 version was outstanding. ” -vanstryland

“ As a card design it is OK, but as a checklist BLAH. I'm a traditionalist for many things and this having a full picture on the front of a checklist stinks in my book. Of course if it is just for a small insert set like this looks to be I can let things slide some. ” -captkirk42

“ Nice looking card. The checklist on the back kind of ruins it though... ” -Jd_sports

“ Not a fan. I also wasn't too thrilled with these Astro uniforms. ” -muskie027

Set: 2010 Bowman Draft Picks & Prospects - Chrome (Rate)

Card: #BDP7 Brennan Boesch

“ That's a great scan for a Chrome card. I'm impressed. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ This card would have been good if it wasn't one of "20" versions of this same card. I went and counted and if you count the printing plates, which I do, there are 20 versions of this same design. What is even worse to me is with only 3 pictures Bowman created 44 cards. Parallels in the beginning were great, but there is no reason besides laziness that I can think of to make 20 of the same card, just changing a background or border. After writing all that, I happened to look at things even further. Knowing that Topps owns Bowman, I looked at noticed that Topps/Bowman made 97 cards of Brennan, in 2010. All other companies combined, 1, Choice. No company needs to make 97 cards of a player in one year. ” -davidhandberry

“ Before commenting, I have to get past my prejudice against Bowman. When Topps originally issued the Bowman brand, I loved it. It seemed to have a simplicity about it that was appealing. Eventually, though, as with all else, it seemed to be a brand that was issued ONLY as a moneymaker, another way to flood the market. Having said that, this isn't a bad card. They make good use of action shots in the series, but the backs do not have any appeal (I don't know why but I hate the standard Bowman back). ” -georgecf

“ Boesch had three good seasons in Detroit and then fell off big time ” -Tylergallo

“ I remember him! I think I had him temporarily on a fantasy team. Don't have any of this set, it is from before my collection resurrection. Doesn't look bad. ” -muskie027

Set: 2000 Teleca - '99 Golden Glove (Rate)

Card: #GG01 Min-Tae Chung

“ I was confused for a moment. I thought I should know most if not all Golden Glove winners in my lifetime but then I noticed the writing on the back and realized this was a foreign card, just with an English title. Weird that an Asian card would have English words on it to me. ” -davidhandberry

“ Reminds me of the flair wave of the future inserts from the mid 90s ” -Paullilko

“ Why can't Topps be more like this? It reminds me of the Astros' rainbow unis. ” -Kirbythedodger

“ Looking for Mike battle. My name is Jon Pierson l went to school with him6 ” -Unclejon91

“ I just have to wonder why the entire back is in a foreign language (I am not fluent in the characters, so I do not know exactly which), but the front has "Golden Glove" in English. ” -muskie027
