Random Card of the Day

Set: 2015 Upper Deck Marvel Ant-Man (Rate)

Card: #12 Darren leads his guests to the Future's Vault...

“ The card's a little lackluster but the Ant-Man movies are great. The sequel is actually better than the original. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I don't collect movie/tv cards and one of the big reasons is cards like this that have no action and no big plot points. The front is bland, the back is awful. ” -davidhandberry

“ Nice to see Upper Deck taking care of good ol' Fleer's Marvel , too bad non-sports can't rely on any athletic skills to boost values. ” -baseballcardstoreca

“ I collected the basketball version from 1997-98. Completed the series 1 set and recently sold it. Remember some cool inserts and parallels. Only bought a few packs of the baseball however as this came out around when I quit collecting for awhile. ” -Sinnycool

“ One of mine and Mrs Gunny's fave Marvel movie. I enjoyed the card set as well. Nice base set and some cool inserts that paid tribute to the comic book origins. ” -Gunny

“ OK Non-Sport. At first I thought this was Vin Diesel but it isn't. ” -captkirk42

Set: 1994 Power (Rate)

Card: #PR60 Western Auto Team

“ What is up with racing cards? This is the second just awful looking racing card in the last couple weeks. The front looks like a racing car is crashing into a 18 wheeler, reminds me of the old Burnout video games. The back looks like someone is watching a race while medicated. I try to say something positive, if I can, but I can't find anything. ” -davidhandberry

“ Yikes, this card is a whole lot of bad. Its a shame too because I liked that car design too. ” -jupiterhill

“ Oh no! That giant truck is crushing that race car! ” -rmpaq5

“ What? Racing card? Front seems OK I guess, back is a train wreck or rather a racetrack wreck.That sort of distortion effect only works on video, or those 3-D flicker type images that switch back and forth. ” -captkirk42

“ Alright, something different. Too bad I turned the card over. ” -NJDevils

“ Awesome, another NASCAR card as card of the Day. Darrell Waltrip owned and drove this car, it was nearing the end of his Hall of Fame career, which began in 1972 at the Cup level, and lasted until 2000. By this point he had already scored all 84 of his wins, which still ranks 5th all time. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Just when you thought only race cars were allowed on the track, Mayhem crashes the party with a big ole' semi. Hope you have Allstate, and not some cut-rate insurance. And what the hell is going on with the back of this card? ” -CollectingAfterDeath

Set: 2014 Grandstand Charleston RiverDogs (Rate)

Card: #NNO John Murphy

“ I did not know Chris Angel had a baseball card!! I love minor league cards. I wish that hadn't used a white border but the faded look is nice. The back is better than most pro league cards. ” -davidhandberry

“ This is an A+ photo choice for any card, never mind a minor league issue. Nicely done, Grandstand! ” -mkaz80

“ I haven't had a card I have been excited about in a while, but this one has me jumping for joy. Great photo. Design front is not so bad, would prefer something different that the 2014 that is there. ” -parsley24

“ he's floating! love minor league stuff ” -Thunderfoot

“ Nice minor league card. ” -captkirk42

Set: 1995 Summit (Rate)

Card: #133 Dave Meggett

“ I only collected football for a few years in the early 90's, (apart from Deion Sanders and Brian Jordan who were Braves players) but for some reason I remembered collecting Meggett cards. Boy am I glad that I got rid of them years ago. Just a little Google search and he turned into a horrible human being. ” -davidhandberry

“ all around gross card. ” -parsley24

“ always like Meg... versatile player.. good speed and moves too ” -tonym

Set: 2003 Bowman's Best - Blue (Rate)

Card: #45 Jimmy Smith

“ Calling this Bowman's best just makes me sad. Bowman you could have been great, I loved several of your sets especially 92. Over the last 3 decades you have faded so much in my esteem. ” -davidhandberry

“ I always say the same thing about Bowman's "Best" as well as Topp's "Finest". Y'all know what that is and it is negative. This is a chrome/refractor type card that looks much better in person than on scan. Back not a fan of these comparative stats they use. ” -captkirk42

“ Wow, football got Bowman's Best as late as 2003? The brand's last appearance in my sport was 2000-01. ” -Billy Kingsley

Set: 2008 Upper Deck Documentary (Rate)

Card: #3717 Roy Halladay

“ Remember, is the database ends up too slow, this is the set to blame. ” -volbox

“ When I first saw this set it seemed like a great idea for a set. A card for each game of the season. This could have been a great concept but they flunked as soon as they didn't use a picture from that game. The same photo across several games, sometimes the player on the front didn't even play in that game. Then the blurb about the game is off even more, talking about people or persons who aren't shown anywhere. ” -davidhandberry

“ Darn near the most ultimate set ever, 1 huge mistake no identifying name, not that Doc needs one but many others in the set do. ” -baseballcardstoreca

“ When I first saw these I though what a great idea. But after going through a few packs sumthin' just didn't work. Like this card references the Boston Ace but shows Roy Halladay of the Jays. Also the background doesn't look like Fenway Park. ” -Gunny

“ Yep- put the whole set together. Anyone want to try to do the same? Let me know and I can get you a nice starter lot. ” -Dave Sosidka

“ The concept of this set wasn't bad. A card from every game that season (from each team's point of view). Now for set collectors it ballooned way to large, but that is not the main nitpick I have of this set. The pictures are continually reused. For instance if you look at the back of this card at the boxscore, Halladay didn't even pitch it, the winning pitcher is Marcum. An actual shot from each game would have been epic. ” -rmpaq5

“ I like the concept of this set. I think others could copy the idea for football games. ” -cjjt

“ ACK it's a dreaded 1,000s of cards in one set card. Not only that they use the same images for each card the individual player appears on. ” -captkirk42

“ Great card of the great Roy Halladay! ” -Jd_sports

Set: 2011 Topps Allen & Ginter (Rate)

Card: #349 Yuniesky Betancourt

“ Year after year there is no "funner" product than Allen and Ginter. No Position? A hit per game player , nice stats 785 hits in 810 games . ” -baseballcardstoreca

“ When these first came out I loved them. The painted look, though I bet they were just photoshopped to look that way. The vintage look. There have now been 14 years of Topps Allen and Ginter, there were only 2 years of the ACTUAL Allen and Ginter. ” -davidhandberry

“ one of the more palatable A&G designs ” -parsley24

“ I have always liked A&G. The 2011 design was a big departure from the "standard" A&G design with the border lines, block surrounding the brand name and the team logo. Back completely standard A&G. ” -captkirk42

“ I don't love the location of the name, but maybe that's partially a result of the longer last name. There's something about Allen & Ginter that's unique, but I'm not interested in collecting it on a yearly basis. ” -vanstryland

“ NAF - not a fan ” -NJDevils

“ Some of the Allen & Ginter stuff has such a cool look. I've really come around on these, just like Heritage, over the years. ” -muskie027

Set: 1998 Circa Thunder (Rate)

Card: #37 Bobby Bonilla

“ 2019 Salaries: Bobby Bonilla - $1.19 million Ronald Acuña Jr - $1M Cody Bellinger - $605K Juan Soto - $578.3K ” -volbox

“ It's weird to me to see this set not called Z-Force. When the NBA set came out in 1997 I really thought it was great, but looking back on it I'm not that big of a fan of it. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Overall, a decent card. The action pictures on the front are nice, but the backgrounds are often too busy, and detract from the player's image. The backs are what makes the set standout. It is a different design that is graphically pleasing. Career stats would have been preferable to the OBP graph, but that seems a minor point. ” -georgecf

“ I didn't know he started his career with the White Sox just to be traded back to the Pirates...not that I could learn any of that from this card of course. ” -vanstryland

“ ThE mEtS sTiLl PaY hIm EvErY yEaR. ” -Tylergallo

“ Haven't heard of this one. Looks like a late 1990s Fleer Ultra or a Pacific brand. ” -captkirk42

“ I never hear anyone talk about what a good player he was, I only ever hear about what a bad contract the Mets gave him. This card is a little busy, but it's interesting at least. ” -jackal726

“ By no means a traditional baseball card , too much thunder , lightning and sparks not enough pure BB + lackluster stats =meh ! ” -baseballcardstoreca

“ A perfect example of 1990s inserts by Fleer/Skybox. But I have to say, I would happily pull this from a pack over some of the inserts released today. These were crazy and included cool info on the backs. ” -Corky

“ An obvious late 90s card. I feel a bit of nostalgia seeing all the computer generated graphics. ” -davidhandberry

Set: 2017 Topps Heritage (Rate)

Card: #258 Raimel Tapia / David Dahl

“ Nice looking retro card but still the same issue. It's getting old. Try something new Topps. ” -davidhandberry

“ my first set that i have been trying to collect since jumping back in. So close.... so close. Not my favorite design of a card, but the simplicity of the photos is great. ” -parsley24

“ Two solid Rockies rookies. ” -vanstryland

“ Nice RETRO Heritage card. Wasn't David Dahl supposed to be one of those golden child players? ” -captkirk42

“ Everytime someone says David Dahl, I mentally confuse him with David Diehl. ” -royals

Set: 1994 Finish Line (Rate)

Card: #139 Jimmy Fennig

“ 1993 Leaf wants its design back. ” -ShoTime

“ The effects on this card reminds me of the movie Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. ” -rmpaq5

“ This could be one of the worst cards I have ever seen. The awful photos, the dizzying background, the slanted writing. I am trying to find something nice to say and I can't find one redeeming quality. This card should be burned and anyone that worked on this card should be thrown in prison for crimes against humanity. ” -davidhandberry

“ Pro Set did racing too! Not just Hockey, Football, and Little Mermaid. Drivers' have directors? At least no frame-y borders. ” -baseballcardstoreca

“ It's amazing how many sets in this time period used this same basic design. More than one in the same season for NASCAR! I consider 1994 the best season for NASCAR cards although 1998 is my favorite season overall. Although Jimmy Fennig has retired from traveling to every track every week he's still involved in the sport today, being technical director of Roush Fenway Racing. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ So-so racing card in my book. Was Finish Line part of Press PASS? It looks very similar and is very simple. ” -captkirk42

“ Maybe if you were into racing, but not for me. This could be anything looking at the front. I wouldn't have been shocked if this was a set of news casters of the world, tennis coaches, random cards for people watching a horse race. A lot of wasted space in the bottom right too. ” -muskie027
