Set: 2005 Donruss Classics - Team Colors Bronze (Rate)

Card: #TC-16 Tony Gonzalez

“ Colorful and numbered. I like. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Ooh, I like this one. ” -jupiterhill

“ I swear I’m having déjà vu. Didn’t a parallel of this pop up not long ago? ” -rmpaq5

“ Never saw these before. It is a great looking card ” -NJDevils

“ I don't like this card. why shove everything on the left and leave the right side basically blank. I thought at first this was a memorabilia card, where the large Chiefs logo, they needed to put something. ” -davidhandberry

“ Kansas City is airing it out this year. Throwing to Amazing tight ends is nothing new though, before Travis Kelce it was Tony Gonzalez. ” -Josh1984

“ Nice looking Classic card. Love the original Classics from the original Donruss. The new Panini Classics are OK but I do with that Donruss had never gone out of business. OK back is sort of plain. Not really sure what the purpose of this insert set is though other than to have multi-colored cards. ” -captkirk42

“ looks nice, kinda miss the pre-panini donruss stuff ” -Thunderfoot

Set: 2004 Topps Chrome (Rate)

Card: #178 Rocky Biddle

“ Nice card. I like Topps Chrome. This must have been near the end of the Expos. I think I saw Biddle pitch for the Expos at Dodger Stadium in 2003, but would have to look on my computer to be sure. ” -switzr1

“ Didn't Chrome just come up recently? I life the design of this Topps set. ” -muskie027

“ I never got the point of the existence of Chrome. Basically, Topps base cards that are more difficult to keep in mint shape and aren't too easy on the eyes. I can't be alone in thinking this way. ” -DanD

“ 2004 Topps I know I know I need to get more of you. Regular not Chrome. Thought we had one of these recently. OK back in November on the 17th we had a 2004 First Edition, not the Chrome. OK so I'm not totally nuts, just partly. Like the design reminds me of sets from the 1970s and 80s the front anyway the back will always be something from the 1990s or early 2000s with the color headshot on the back. ” -captkirk42

“ Definitely my favourte part of this design is the silhouette of the player in the bottom corners. ” -rmpaq5

“ Bring back the Expos ” -rmitchell6700

Set: 2012 Panini Prizm (Rate)

Card: #16 Jose Bautista

“ I do like Panini Prizm. Nice looking card. ” -switzr1

“ Is that a Walkie-Talkie in his back pocket? Perhaps a Hoagie? ” -LordKinbote

“ Another good player on the RCOTD. I am unfamiliar with Prizm, but it looks fairly decent. Could do without the blurred out background. ” -muskie027

“ Dislike cards that use the same picture on the front as they did on the back. ” -kirkscards

“ Jays card I don't have? May as well put it on the Want List. ” -DanD

“ Another Random Prizm card. Read my comment from a few days ago then. I am beyond tired of all chrome all shiny cards. Plus with Panini not have the MLB licensing the lack of logos stinks. This card has a good photo that they didn't have to airbrush the heck out of to remove logos or team names. ” -captkirk42

Set: 2016 Bowman Platinum (Rate)

Card: #96 David Price

“ To me, some of the Bowman Platinum sets seem a little uninspired. Like they were put out as an afterthought. ” -switzr1

“ Overall, a fantastic card. Not perfect though. I don't like the white on white where the last name is printed. It also feels like something's missing. I'd like to see "Red Sox" printed out somewhere near the top in big bright red letters in the famous Boston font. Lastly, full stats on back please. ” -chvlDm

“ A decent looking Bowman card, too bad there is probably 80 versions of this card. ” -davidhandberry

“ I do not like the fuzziness in the background. ” -kirkscards

“ Why are so many baseball teams named Sox? It's something I've always wondered. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ As a Red Sox collector, this is a nice selection to see. But honestly, I don't really care for the many sets and variations these days. I long for simpler days when a sports card was a sports card, without all the pretentiousness. ” -AtarianX

“ I love the look of the new Bowman cards. Has a very modern look to it. ” -opatalin

“ I seem to pull more David Price inserts and parallels out of packs than any other player. It's too bad I don't collect him, or I'd be way ahead of the game. ” -rmitchell6700

“ I'll take the battle droids over a spinning wheel with a pair of red socks pinned to it. ” -NJDevils

“ I had always thought Bowman Platinum was a very blah release until 2018. ” -IfbBirdsCards

“ They should have cut this design off at the Bowman Platinum logo and put his name somewhere else. #almostnotugly ” -LordKinbote

“ Ah Bowman Platinum. A love/hate set/series with me. Like the designs but I have grown tired of shiny cards. The fatigue only grows with age as the fonts get smaller and smaller and the eyes get more and more out of focus. ” -captkirk42

“ Another card that I think might look better in hand than the scanned version. Nice modern card and player! ” -muskie027

Set: 2006 Topps Turkey Red (Rate)

Card: #492 Garrett Atkins

“ I am just not a fan of this. Not sure why. ” -muskie027

“ Swinging his bat in the middle of the desert. Not a great card, but not terrible. ” -switzr1

“ I like this set, one of my favorite artsy sets. I wish it had a full name and position on the front, besides that it is nicely done. Just the last name is fine for players with unique names but when it is the Johnson, Jones, Smiths of the world it is annoying to have to turn over the card to see which one it is. ” -davidhandberry

“ I like the Turkey Red sets Topps did. Neat throwback to an earlier time, and an interesting texture on the cards. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ For some reason I have always like Turkey Red retro cards. Even though they and the original cards they are based on only have the player's last name shown on the front so lesser known players are difficult to figure out if you don't or can't read the back. ” -captkirk42

“ Love the Turkey Red version of the heritage cards ” -kirkscards

Set: 2014 Panini Prizm - Prizms (Rate)

Card: #87 Brandon Phillips

“ I am unfamiliar with Prizm, but it looks like there is an effect that is not coming through in the scan. If so, this could look pretty cool in hand. ” -muskie027

“ I really like this card/set. Very unique border and design. The only two drawbacks are no position on the front and the same picture on the back. I know people are going to complain about the lack of logos but that is MLB doing that not Panini. ” -davidhandberry

“ The early Prizms scanned so well. Then they changed how they do them and not do much. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Good scan. I could tell it was a Prizm. Say what you will, I LOVE Panini Prizm sets and all the parallels that are easy to distinguish due to different SNs. ” -switzr1

“ Personally I am very tired of all Chrome Prizm. Part of it the lack of official licensing. I am beyond tired of the exclusive stuff. The Unlicensed cards look like generic wannabees. ” -captkirk42

“ I've always had a soft spot for Panini Prizm, more so for their hockey product than the baseball. ” -rmitchell6700

Set: 1991-92 Panini Stickers (Rate)

Card: #281 Ron Francis

“ I wish I had purchased more Panini stickers over the years. I got some of the 1995-96 NBA set and then none until 2015-16. Turns out I really like them. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I don't care stickers but this is better than most baseball stickers I have seen. This one has his name and team and even stats whereas most just have a picture and a number that I have seen. ” -davidhandberry

“ not a good look. Very little effort went into making this. ” -parsley24

“ I usually like Panini stickers but this one to be honest looks like a card back. ” -captkirk42

“ Pretty basic design but I like it. ” -kirkscards

“ Sticker albums are great for kids. I loved this stuff in the early 80s. And moms probably prefer them to cards, as they all stay in one place. I was just thinking over the weekend of maybe collecting stickers and putting them in the albums again. Maybe this RCOTD is a sign that I should! ” -switzr1

“ Kind of cool. I like the early 90's design! ” -Sticker

“ My first taste into hockey card collecting was good ol Panini sticker books. This is your run of the mill late 80s early 90s look. Nothing to get excited about. ” -ranfordfan

Set: 1999 Topps Chrome (Rate)

Card: #339 Royce Clayton

“ Chrome is much better in hand than in scan. ” -Splinter_9

“ Good picture, good design but never cared for Chrome. If it was a subset or parallel you got in with the Topps base set then it would be alright but as a complete separate set to have the same exact card just chromed makes no sense to me. If you are going to have another set at least change the pictures or something. I get Topps vintage, archives, tech, etc because they are not the exact same design, picture, back as the regular Topps set. ” -davidhandberry

“ Great scan of a Chrome card for that era. 99-01 Chrome cards are notoriously hard to scan. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I admit it - I like Topps Chrome. I enjoy the chrome cards. I know they don't scan well, but they do look awesome in hand. ” -vrooomed

“ This is one of the reasons I'm not big on Chrome cards. Very difficult to scan. Look much better in person. with the dark chrome scan looks like he is dancing or figure skating. ” -captkirk42

“ He is now the HS baseball coach at the school next to my office. I have seen him out for lunch twice in the last month. He likes burritos. ” -royals

“ Pretty unpopular guy in STL. Brought in as the heir to Ozzie Smith's shortstop position, while Ozzie was still on the team. Ozzie and Tony LaRussa still don't speak to each other, as far as I know. ” -switzr1

“ Never got into the Chrome. The back looks nice. The front I think I would need to see in hand. ” -muskie027

Set: 2001-02 Topps / O-Pee-Chee Archives (Rate)

Card: #14 Stan Mikita

“ I don't collect or follow hockey so I don't know for sure if this is a reprint or a current player on an old design but either way I don't care for the front. I love the back, miss the cartoons and interesting tidbits on the back of cards. The front of this card I would give a 3 and the back a 10. ” -davidhandberry

“ Nice reprint set. In a bit of oddity, I've gotten cards from the 50s already but I don't have any of these. This season the Blackhawks are wearing a memorial patch all season long as he died a few months ago. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Cool reprint from a retro set. Or should I say a reprint set? I wonder how many cards in the set have matching card numbers like this one? I wonder how many of they (Topps/OPC) tried to match up for the set? Getting back to the card design I loved the trivia cartoons on older designs and some of the gimmicks they used for them. ” -captkirk42

“ LOVE IT!!! ” -cjjt

“ Actually not a comment on design or layout or anything...but what is up with his socks? Just doesn't look right. ” -rmpaq5

“ A legend and a nice card. I'd take it. ” -muskie027

“ I didn't know there was a hockey Archives set. Not real crazy about the design. ” -switzr1

Set: 2017-18 Panini Ascension - The Thrill of Victory (Rate)

Card: #TOV11 Russell Westbrook

“ For a card called the Thrill of Victory shouldn't the team have done well not been out in the first round of the playoffs? The front looks alright but hate the back with a duplicate picture. If you are going to make your background rainbowish then don't put your wording or designs rainbow also it washes them out. So much failure in one card no wonder Russell looks so angry. ” -davidhandberry

“ Nice looking card. Not a fan of OKC, but Russ is one of the league's best players. ” -switzr1

“ Not bad for an insert. Westbrook has been amazing over the last two plus seasons. The orange alternate jersey is much brighter in real life, that's on Panini because these are excellent scans. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ OK looking card. Would be better if there was a specific Victory mentioned/commemorated on back. ” -captkirk42

“ Terrible background front and back ” -NJDevils

“ Im not a big basketball's fan but the picture of day really show !!!The Trill of Victory!!! Good pics for the thems of the card Thanks ” -Kate222

“ It's ok as an insert. Could be worse. ” -muskie027
