Set: 2011 Topps - Diamond Anniversary Factory Set Limited Edition (Rate)

Card: #218 Victor Martinez

“ Great photo. OK design. ” -parsley24
“ Nice 2011 Topps card. When did they start stamping Factory sets? Oh wait it was a special Anniversary Year never mind. ” -captkirk42
“ A great design that feels like it will be considered a classic from this era of card collecting. IMHO ” -koloth42   1
“ Is there a clinical name for the condition where the right half of my brain sees this and starts ranting about unnecessary, money-grab, slight variant sets, while simultaneously the left half of my brain makes a note to pull up this set and add the Braves cards to my wantlist? More importantly, is there medication? ” -jackal726   1
“ I always liked the really simple design of 2011, I just think it looks nice ” -mkb

Set: 1990 Pro Set (Rate)

Card: #218 Pat Swilling

“ One of my favorite sets, large team sets and some great pictures are a joy to look at over and over again ” -aussiewayne   4
“ This is a nice card. Pro Set always did give you a lot of information in the write up on the back. ” -Brendan Barrick   5
“ Nice action picture, like most in this set. Plus, you learn that Swilling had to write his number on his towel to keep his teammates from using it. Terrific! ” -hamrlik22   3
“ Great set.... sleeper of an investment. Also i have a ton for trade. please take. ” -parsley24
“ Excellent Pro Set card. I love these things. Still need to complete all of them. NFL that is not the Soccer or Hockey sets. ” -captkirk42
“ Love this set. Started my first stint of football card collecting with 1989 Pro Set. ” -freakizon
“ I remember this set from way back when i collected football. It gives me some nostalgia. Living in Louisiana for the past 10 years I am sick of the Saints, especially the Cowboys vs. Saints arguments that friends and coworkers have. ” -davidhandberry

Set: 1997 Fleer (Rate)

Card: #463 Joey Hamilton

“ This set was great for autographs. [though I'm not a guy that chases autos TTM or IP] "Mat" finish on the cards as opposed to glossy. I guess the hobby didn't like that, because I can't think of another set like it. ” -abide   4
“ I tend to flip-flop about this set. Looks wise it is very plain, but I do like me some good old Fleer from time to time. Plus I like the flat (aka Non-Glossy) finish to the cards. ” -captkirk42   1

Set: 2017 Topps (Rate)

Card: #255 Orlando Arcia

“ It's nice to see an actual plain ol' base card on here from time to time. You can only see so many supa dupa-fly mega retro-liquifactors numbered to 67 before fatigue starts to set in. ” -mkaz80   13
“ Like the RC logo. That mishmash of a design at the bottom takes up way too much of the card and draws way too much attention to itself. The focus of the card is the player, not your yearly design framing Topps! ” -Tscastle   4
“ Not a fan of the design, nor when topps just takes what they did the year before, but make it look different. ” -parsley24   3
“ Modern Topps design that I still haven't warmed up to much. It is OK but very tiring. Back very boring. I think if Topps were still using the card stock that was used pre-mid 1980s the background colors for these last few years of Topps sets would look like the Donruss backs from the 1980s. ” -captkirk42   1
“ I like this set, but found the design was not much different from 2016-2018. Nice to see a regular base set card on the RCOTD. ” -muskie027

Set: 1999 Bowman (Rate)

Card: #79 Adrian Murrell

“ I like this card. Adrian Murrell did have a nice career. ” -Brendan Barrick   1
“ One of the best modern Bowman designs in my opinion. ” -dbro02   5
“ Nice design for a lower budget. Unlike Upper Deck, whose design work on the low cost product were abysmal. ” -hamrlik22   5
“ I like the look of this Bowman design, but don't like the team name and position being sideways in a strange font. Also player name hard to read in this scan. I forget it the cards in hand are hard to read. Back looks OK but could be improved, stats should be more than just the one season. ” -captkirk42
“ only if it was written in comic sans could this font choice be any worse. Boo on this design. ” -parsley24   1
“ i've always enjoyed the look of this set ” -Thunderfoot

Set: 1991 Hoby Stars of the SEC (Rate)

Card: #69 Alexander Wright

“ This is an ok design. I like the picture on the front, but the lack of stats on the back reduces my impression of this card. ” -Brendan Barrick
“ Nice 1990s College Football Card. Interesting photo makes him look real small with a GIANT Blocker. ” -captkirk42

Tuesday, July 27, 2021

Set: 2003 Upper Deck Finite - Elements Game Patch (Rate)

Card: #SG Shawn Green

“ This is a pretty nice card. One problem is that for some of the other Upper Deck releases, you could barley see the serial numbering on the back because it was so dark. This isn't a problem with this card because where the serial numbering is, it stands out. ” -jdogg1228   2
“ "Up and at them!"--Radioactive Man ” -rmpaq5   8
“ Gross ” -parsley24   2

Monday, July 26, 2021

Set: 2006 Upper Deck (Rate)

Card: #1194 Ben Zobrist

“ Nice simple set, big contrast between UD and Topps. The back of the rookie cards in the set, like this one, with no stats, feels empty. ” -abide   2
“ Compared to some of his later cards on the cubs, he looks so young right here! Also, I'm very surprised about this card number! #1194! Unbelievable how many cards were in this set. ” -jdogg1228   1
“ i dont like on the back when it just says no MLB experience... Like i cant tell from all the seasons with the Chattanooga's, Yakima's and Chattahoochee's that this person hasnt made it to the bigs yet. But thanks UD for not letting me see any MiLB stats. ” -parsley24   2
“ I like this Upper Deck set. It isn't great and it isn't a "favorite" set but it is OK. Back is OK even with reusing the same picture as the front as a headshot. ” -captkirk42
“ Not too bad, but UD didn't always have same photo on front and back and I am not sure what is going on with the tiny foil font over the last name. ” -muskie027

Set: 2018 Panini Prizm World Cup - Scorers Club (Rate)

Card: #SC-27 Mile Jedinak

“ Prizm always looks cool in hand. ” -muskie027   2
“ Hey a Panini Prizm card that doesn't look exactly like all the other Panini Prizm cards. I still don't like the chrome Prizm design but this one you might be able to identify more easily. Biggest problem though is the border design looks like a basketball not a soccer ball. ” -captkirk42   2
