I'm surprised the US Army card on the Army's birthday this past week didn't make the list.

Jun 18, 2019 - 11:03AM

Sorry Billy, missed that connection.  It's been added to the list now.

Cool. I like when stuff like that happens.

Admin, you might want to add that the 1975 Fleer National Flag Foundation Stickers was Card of the Day on not only the US Army's birthday, but it is also United States Flag Day, 14 June.

Just wondering, what does the "opened for comments date" on the entries mean?  Comments on the card of the day are opened a week before it's posted?  I've been a member of the site for a while, but fairly new to commenting and the user lists.  Thanks in advance.

On 6/29/2021, a Marc Andre Fleury card opened for comments. Later that day, he'd be named the Vezina trophy winner as the NHL's top goalie for the previous season.

There was a Star Trek card yesterday that was open for comments on the same day that that Star Wars card was RCOTD
