NON-SPORT FRANKENSET - CARD #10

 IT'S BEEN 18 MONTHS SINCE THE LAST POST FROM THE NON-SPORT FRANKENSET BUT I FOUND THE IMAGE FOLDER AND I DON'T KNOW WHAT ELSE TO DO WITH MYSELF SO BACK TO INFLICTING THESE ON YOU

IF YOU ARE NOT ONE OF THE THREE PEOPLE WHO READ EVERY POST, MY CONCEPT OF A FRANKENSET IS THIS:

A CARD SET NUMBERED 1 TO WHATEVER, 9, 33, 88, 132, 660, 792, WHATEVER YOU FEEL YOU CAN SCROUNGE TOGETHER, BASED ON A BRAND OR THEME OR SPORT OR AND OLD THING YOU LIKE PUT IN A BINDER LIKE IT WAS A REAL SET AND NOT SOME HOMEBREW SHENANIGANS. THIS WAS ORIGINALLY INSPIRED BY BEN HENRY'S BEST OF THE 80S SERIES HE CAME UP WITH LIKE 14 YEARS AGO NOW? JIMINY CHRISTMAS. I USED APPRORIATED REIMAGINED RIPPED OFF THE IDEA FOR MY OWN PURPOSES, SPECIFICALLY MAKING MY OWN TOPPS HERITAGE SET WHEN I HAD A HISSY FIT UPON REALIZING I WOULD NEVER FINISH ANY HERITAGE SET EVER. I'VE ACCUMULATED SEVERAL MORE SETS SINCE INCLUDING TOPPS GOLD BORDER, HERITAGE CHROME, GINTER AND TOPPS206 MINIS AND PANINI GOLDEN AGE. THIS IS THE NON-SPORTS VERSION I COBBLED TOGETHER FROM THE DOUBLES OF A GIANT NON-SPORT COMMON LOT I BOUGHT ALONG WITH SOME OF MY FAVORITE ODDBALL CARDS. HERE'S A SCAN OF THE FIRST PAGE FOR THE FIRST 9 WHICH WERE POSTED IN 2019


 

HERE IS CARD NUMBER 10

1996 JPP/AMADA GODZILLA CHROMIUM - GODZILLA, KING OF THE MONSTERS


GO GO GODZILLA. NOTHING REALLY NEEDS TO BE SAID ABOUT A CHROMIUM CARD OF GOZILLA'S ORIGINAL 1954 MOVIE POSTER. WHICH IS GOOD BECAUSE I KNOW ALMOST NOTHING ABOUT JPP AMADA CARDS AND ALMOST EVERYTHING ABOUT THE SET ONLINE IN ENGLISH CONFUSES THIS SET FOR THE 1998 AMERICAN GODZILLA CHROMIUM TRADING CARD SET FROM THE SAME COMPANY. THIS IS FROM THE GOOD SET, I ASSURE YOU. BEHOLD THIS AMAZING CARD AND STAGGER FROM THE REALIZATION THAT IT LOOKS 10 TIMES BETTER IN PERSON



I BELIEVE THIS IS AN ENGLISH REMAKE OF A 1995 JAPANESE LANGUAGE SET BUT I'M NOT SURE. THE BACK CANNOT MATCH THE MAJESTY OF THE FRONT OBVIOUSLY BUT YOU MUST APPRECIATE JUST HOW 'IT'S THE MID-90S AND I HAVE A COMPUTER' THIS BACK DESIGN IS. THAT WHITE WITH BLACK SHADOW OUTLINE ALMOST COMIC-SANS BUT NOT QUITE TEXT PLOPPED ON A BACKGROUND OF TOKYO BURNING IS DOING TERRIBLE THINGS TO THE PART OF MY BRAIN THAT PROCESSES AWKWARD NOSTALGIA. COMBINED WITH THE ZILLA MUGSHOT AND AWESOME VINTAGE LOGO THIS CARD BACK HAS A NICE CHEEZY VIBE GOING. THINK IT CAN'T BE ANY BETTER THAN THIS? THINK AGAIN, THERE IS ALSO A PARALLEL BLANK BACKED STICKER SET OF EVERY CARD IN THE SET. OPEN THE RIGHT PACK AND YOU CAN STICK THE '54 POSTER RIGHT ON YOUR TRAPPER KEEPER

Yeah, that's pretty awesome. I find it interesting that the back photo is the same as the front, except that the fire coming out of his mouth is a different color.

Star Wars, Perlorian Cats, and Godzilla. I'd say you're off to a fantastic start.

@Brett Alan - the fire on the front and back of the card is more or less the same yellow-orange color but the scanner has some issues with picking up colors on the chrome stock. the colors pop more in the light
