Building a set: 1989 Topps Ghostbusters 2 - Pack 8

Back to Ghostbusters. Last pack was a dud, but this one gets us off the schneid. I ain't 'fraid of no doubles...

card #52
SLIMER MUNCHIN ON HOT DAWGS. Better nom 'em quick cause Louis is comin' to get you! Still trying to figure out why this card needs a wiiiiiiiiiiide screen shot. Put it on a regular card design and the only thing you lose is a chair on the left and some file folders on the right. Eh, Slimer deserves a special card I guess.

card #70
Ernie Hudson wonders how long he can milk this gravy train while Bill Murray sternly contemplates an ingenious plan to avoid doing any more sequels.

card #41
This might be my favorite cheezy ghost effect in the film just for the absurdity of a ghost checking his own pulse.

card #55
Can Venkman finally get to first base? YES! No cockblocking annoying baby for once! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

sticker #2
Boo! Skeery Ghosts! I can't tell if this artwork is supposed to look this way or if the register is off. Either way it's effective and manages to cram in a good chunk of the ghosts in the movie.

card #6




card #33
From the previous majestic card to what appears to be Louis puking on a ghost.

card #54
Dammit, set, Sigourney Weaver is NOT just eye candy. She kicked Xenomorph ass in three movies. Wait, do Xenomorphs even have asses? Well, she kicked something. Ghostbusters 3 should just be Sigourney Weaver and a bazooka blowing haunted houses all to shit. BOOOOOm!

card #75

Topps looks like they used the "Black Flag" font for the captions.
