Set: 2016 Topps The Walking Dead Survival Box (Rate)

Card: #34 Reg Monroe

“ I tried getting into this show. I failed. I watched the first season and never got around to the second. As for the card, it is a decent looking non sport card. Didn't realize Topps was still doing non sports cards. ” -davidhandberry

“ *Spoiler alert* I don't think he survives. ” -YoRicha

“ Yuck. Just couldn’t get into Walking Dead for some reason. Probably all the yuck. ” -Brimose

“ Lol , the survival box , doesn't look like the subject will survive , nor does anyone on that show. At least once the show is done Topps has given fans enough WD sets to remember something that to me is quite forgettable.RIP Reg! ” -baseballcardstoreca

“ Modern Non-Sport. OK. I don't watch or collect The Walking Dead so I am not interested in the subject matter but the card look is pretty good. ” -captkirk42

“ Is that....Mitch McConnell?! ” -Vvvergeer

“ OPC cards were notorious for being miscut, off-center and rough edges. ” -NJDevils

“ I have no idea what this is. ” -IndyBean17

“ Is “Survival Box” an oxymoron? ” -IfbBirdsCards

Set: 1995 Finest - Refractors (Rate)

Card: #232 Mike Mimbs

“ Always thought Finest was a misnomer. They were not the finest but I guess when you are comparing it to most Topps sets it doesn't take much. The front is decent. The back, I like the picture and that is about it. ” -davidhandberry

“ Fast forward 24 years later and we still have refractors. His identical twin brother was also a pitcher.Never been a fan of a protective coating with words telling me my card comes with a protective coating. ” -baseballcardstoreca

“ Refractors are always awesome. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ As much as I have always enjoyed the earlier years of Topps Finest, I still dislike the protective coating you need to peel off to enjoy how nice the cards actually are. I peeled the ones in my collection. ” -YoRicha

“ Does anyone take the film off? ” -parsley24

“ I thought I had this card, but when I looked, I didn't. Turns out I have the base card, not the refractor. Third year of Finest in baseball, and despite the cheesy background graphics, I really like the set. And then for the RCOTD, it's a Phillies card, and I always like seeing that! ” -vrooomed

“ there is very little about this card or set that I like or can make a positive comment about. I was going to try to comment about the player but I am not familiar with him. I sort of recognize the name so I might have a card of his, or maybe I have a card of his twin brother Mark. Yeah I found out his twin brother also was a player. ” -captkirk42

“ Not crazy about the front - the background detracts from the picture of the player. The back, however, is beautiful. The layout is nice, and the picture of the player looks good. ” -georgecf

Set: 1968-69 Topps (Rate)

Card: #85 Ted Hampson

“ Vintage hockey + defunct team = pure awesome. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I don't know enough about this card but if that action photo in the background is of him then this is the best hockey front I have seen. Action with a headshot and clear writing. I can't think of anything better than this card. The back is lacking something. I love the facts and cartoon but it's lacking something to me. ” -davidhandberry

“ Sweet vintage card ! From an era when there were no C RW and LW position designations. 1 of about 47 total options for Ted Hampson whereas nowadays you get that of 1 player in 1 release. ” -baseballcardstoreca

“ Cartoons on the back are awesome. After that much is to be desired. Why are all the players secondary to the "action" behind them? It gets worse with other teams like the Bruins where the background is tinted yellow. Yuck. ” -rmpaq5

“ Totally awesome! ” -cjjt

“ Always seems lazy to me when there's a card with a player's new team on it but a main picture of the player in his old team's uniform. Organization eventually merged with the North Stars. ” -vanstryland

“ Cool Vintage Hockey (even though it predates my Capitals) I have always liked this set. Seems a bit ahead of its time though feels more like a mid 70s set rather than late 60s. ” -captkirk42

“ Wish I had access to hockey cards in the years prior to 1980. Love the backs! ” -NJDevils

“ Good looking vintage card. ” -parsley24

“ Not sure on this one. There is something awesome with its age and the actual helmetless posed photo of the player, but I am not sure if the whole set having a drawn in background that is so dominant. I am assuming Hampson is in there somewhere drawn in? I feel like I shouldn't like this. But I do. On another note, it is opening night of the season and this is the RCOTD to write about. Coincidence? ” -muskie027

Set: 2011-12 Panini Rookie Anthology - Crown Royale Rookie Royalty (Rate)

Card: #186 Ryan Thang

“ Panini briefly resurrected Pacific and that was a very good thang(pardon the pun) Nice higher end rookie of a player who never sniffed much NHL ice time ” -baseballcardstoreca

“ I bet he got called Wild Thang often throughout his life... probably still does! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ This is a really sharp looking card. Very nicely done. ” -SandersFan

“ Thang only played one game in the NHL. ” -Tylergallo

“ I am not a huge fan of the Crown Royale Crown die-cut cards. Can't tell if this is one of those regular die-cuts or a regular full non-die-cut card. If it is non-die-cut then I like it a little, if it is die-cut then UGH. ” -captkirk42

“ i dont like the position next to the last name on the back. It makes it look like it is part of his name. ” -parsley24

“ Ain't no thang like a Ryan Thang! ” -muskie027

“ Looks like a throwback to Pacific cards of the early 2000's but not as well done. The writing is barely legible on the front and way too small on the back so they could fit in a way too large team logo. I like the ornate animals on the back crown but they are barely able to be seen because they blend into the crown. Panini at least you tried, failed but tried. ” -davidhandberry

“ I love die-cut cards. I love Crown Royale cards. I don't love hockey, but I still like the card. Nice design on the front and back. I can't complain about the stats since he only played 1 game that year. But a little head shot just above the Panini logo on back would have been a nice addition. ” -spazmatastic

Set: 2009 Rittenhouse Stargate Heroes - Stargate Atlantis Autographs (Rate)

Card: #NNO Bill Nye

“ Does the good penmanship surprise people? Nice looking card. ” -ShoTime

“ "The Science Guy" nice on card auto , Topps and Panini are you paying attention here ? Not a sticker ! ” -baseballcardstoreca

“ Bill Nye! I want it! ” -Lennoxmatt

“ His TV show is 25 years old....and I still use episodes of it while teaching today! ” -rmpaq5

“ Met Bill at my cousins wedding. A real cool guy and down to earth. My wife was so starstruck meeting him because she is a science teacher. ” -carthage44

“ Wow. Might be my favorite non sports card yet on RCOTD. Can't go wrong with Bill Nye. ” -davidhandberry

“ I only dock this card for not saying Bill Nye the Science Guy on the back. ” -vanstryland

“ BILL NYE THE SCIENCE GUY!!! ” -Jd_sports

“ Nice Bill Nye Science Guy. Hmm I forgot he had been on Stargate Atlantis... I didn't see as many of those episodes as I thought I did I guess. ” -captkirk42

“ Neat ” -parsley24

Set: 2019 Topps - 150 Years of Professional Baseball - Greatest Players (Rate)

Card: #GP-40 Phil Niekro

“ I am biased I know, Phil is one of the best Braves players ever and so I obviously love this card. Objectively it is a pretty basic looking card for an insert but it's Phil Niekro and therefore it is great to me. ” -davidhandberry

“ Nice. Uni looks awesome. Love the stadium shot in the background and the blue sky. ” -chvlDm

“ Love these sets with players from the past however they can lead to some heavy debate on who should be in or out , no Mantle no Ruth.Nice set , didn't need the other color variations which is overused in most Topps sets. ” -baseballcardstoreca

“ Nice card, but why does there have to be so many inserts these days? ” -jayoneill

“ Not a fan of this insert set that Topps came up with even though it has many super HOF stars in it. That is a very cool photo of Phil Niekro. ” -captkirk42

Set: 2003-04 SP Authentic (Rate)

Card: #143 Alex Garcia

“ I like the cohesiveness between the front and back but besides that just a very average looking card. Needs something to make it pop. Reminds me of an old black and white tv on the fritz. Also, why on the back do the black lines makes a coffin shape? ” -davidhandberry

“ Rare player. Very expensive set due to people chasing LeBron autograph rookie. Not a huge fan of SPA but for a rookie photo shoot image, as this is, the "player cutout over nothing" works. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ SN is col. Card is a big meh. ” -muskie027

Set: 1986 O-Pee-Chee (Rate)

Card: #123 Greg Walker

“ This is about when I started collecting, I remember having a few of the Topps set, but 87 is when I really started collecting. It has held up pretty well, in my opinion. Wish there was a little less white on the border but at least they broke it up with the large team name on the top. The back is great. I liked the OPC brand, but wish they did more to change the cards so you can tell more easily if it's Topps or OPC. ” -davidhandberry

“ All I can really say about this Card of the Day is how OFF the scans are in angles. The front scan is expected with the off-centering, spotting and the chipping in the black of the border. But the back is totally crooked. I hated (and still hate) the 1986 Topps/OPC fronts. The backs weren't bad, but also completely bland and standard. It's really too bad that the standard back then doesn't really exist today. I'd prefer the 1986 back to the crap that passes for a back in the 2010 decade of MLB cards. ” -spazmatastic

“ Classic number on the pants....as much as I still dislike it, as a nostalgia guy, I respect it. I remember getting the random OPC card in value packs of cards in the early 90s. In fact, a Greg Walker is just the type of card you would get. Not a big fan of 1986 Topps/OPC, but the backs are decent enough for the time period. ” -tbshaw

“ Very tough issue to find in near mint to mint , OPC cards were too often miscut/off-centered rather unfortunately as their production numbers are very pale in comparison to Topps ” -baseballcardstoreca

“ I wonder how he got credited for 163 games played when Chicago only played 162. I looked it up to make sure it wasn't a one game playoff with the Royals; nope, but his statline on the card doesn't appear to be an error. Anyone know the story? ” -Brimose

“ I used to think Opeechee was the canadian knockoff version of topps. Change my mind ” -parsley24

“ One of my fave 1980s OPC/Topps designs. Back in the day I opened a ton of the Topps version. Don't have many if any OPC versions. ” -captkirk42

“ Go Go White Sox! ” -carthage44

“ The Topps 86 set was the first I ever collected. Every time I see these cards, even though this is the O-Pee-Chee version, the design brings me back to being 8 years old. For me, this is a legendary set (the Topps version). ” -muskie027

Set: 1994 Panini Stickers (Rate)

Card: #33 John Valentin

“ This is a great design. I would like more like this from Panini. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ One of the nicer, and bigger sized Panini sticker offerings. Would be nice to see them return to this size rather than the smaller ones we have been offered all too frequently of late. ” -baseballcardstoreca

“ Not a bad classic basic look for a sticker. ” -parsley24

“ OH it's a sticker. At first glance I thought this was a minor league card of some kind. Looks good for a sticker. Personally I think Panini should still stick with making just stickers (pun may or may not be intended). ” -captkirk42

“ I HATE stickers . . . Therefore, I HATE this set. Making matters worse, many of the pictures in this set are not cropped very well. ” -georgecf

“ Simple Card. ” -kjv63078

“ Great front. Blah back. Then it being a sticker ruins it even more for me. I collect stickers as baseball cards but i try to keep them separate because I have had them stick to other cards before. ” -davidhandberry

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
