NON-SPORT FRANKENSET - CARD #12

i have untill next sunday to write this and i have time today buit am going to be lazy aso if you see this on sunday you will know i fuckwesd up[

I FUCKED UP

HERE'S A CARD

1984 FTCC STAR TREK III KLINGON BATTLE COMMANDER KRUGE



WHEN I FIRST PUT THIS SET TOGETHER I STILL LIKED STAR WARS WHICH EXPLAINS THE LUKE SKYWALKER CARD AT #1. SINCE THEN I'M JUST COMPLETELY DONE WITH THE WHOLE MESS AND HAVE SWITCHED MY ALLEGIANCE TO STAR TREK. NEW STAR TREK IS JUST AWFUL INSTEAD OF BEING AWFUL AND CAUSING INTERNET DRAMA. THIS SET ISN'T ABOUT FRANCHISES ANYWAY IT'S ABOUT CHARACTERS AND THERE'S NO BIGGER CHARACTER THAN CHRISTOPHER LLOYD. SO MANY GREAT CHARACTERS. JIM IGNATOWSKI, DOC BROWN, JUDGE DOOM, UNCLE FESTER, PROFESSOR PLUM, CYBERCHASE HACKER. IN STAR TREK HE GETS TO BE A HOT HEADED KLINGON COMMANDER WHO STRAIGHT UP KILLS PEOPLE RIGHT AND LEFT. THEN ASSHOLE KIRK KILLS THE DUDE'S DOG AND SHIT GETS REAL. GOTTA LOVE A CHARACTER THAT TRIES TO CHUCK CAPTAIN KIRK INTO A BIG POOL OF LAVA. THIS SET IS AMAZINGLY OLD SCHOOL DESIGN WISE. SCREENSHOT FROM THE FILM INSIDE A BIG CHUNKY BORDER ON SUPER THICK INDUSTRIAL GRADE CARDBOARD WITH MINIMAL INFORMATION ON THE BACK. THIS IS THE KIND OF SET CUSTOM CARD MAKERS DON'T HAVE THE CAJONES TO CREATE

COME THE EARLY 90S THERE WOULD BE STAR TREK TRADING CARDS EVERYWHERE LIKE DANDELIONS ON YOUR MANUCURED LAWN BUT IN THE 80S THERE WASN'T A LOT. THE VINTAGE SETS FROM 67 AND 76, SETS FOR THE FIRST TWO MOVIES AND A BUNCH OF PROMOS. NOT A LOT OF DEMAND EITHER SINCE THE SECOND AND THIRD MOVIE SETS WERE PRODUCED BY FTCC, OF WHICH I KNOW NOTHING. A GOOGLE SEARCH GETS YOU FAYETTEVILLE TECHNICAL COMMUNITY COLLEGE. ADD TRADING CARDS AND YOU FIND THEY ALSO DID A SET FOR THE WRATCH OF KHAN, AN ALIEN NATION SET THAT IS VERY SIMILAR TO THIS ONE AND ALSO APPARENTLY PRODUCED SETS FOR THE THREE STOOGES AND THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW I HAVE NEVER EVER HEARD OF. THE PACKS FOR ROCKY HORROR ALL LOOK TOO, LIKE SOMEONE REIMAGINING A TRADING PACK CARD FROM THE 80S. WHO KNOWS THE WHOLE DANG THING MIGHT BE FAKE. THE ENTIRE TRADING CARD INDUSTRY. I MEAN, THE HOTTEST COLLECTIBLE RIGHT NOW IS A LIMITED EDITION NBA GIF. WE'RE ALL LIVING IN A SIMULATION OF A HOLOGRAM AND I JUST WANT ONE FUCKING BLASTER OF '72 TIOPPS HERITAGE. GET ON IT COSMIC PROGRAMMER

Lloyd is a national treasure. Have you seen "Things to Do in Denver When You're Dead?" That' CL at his best...
