All-New Retro-Style Trading Card Series Of The Mark Spears Monsters! A Throwback To Those 70s And 80s Card Series With A Twist…
Remember the great non-sport trading cards from the 80s and late 70s? They always had 7 cards, 1 sticker and a piece of gum. This series is inspired by those cards and will have the same type of card stock on the base cards. The same taste and smell in the bubble gum and the great joy of opening a pack. After the kickstarter is over, the cards will be for sale on Amazon and Walmart and possibly other retail outlets.
All of the classic monsters are here that you know. Count Dracula, Frankenstein’s monster, The Bride of Frankenstein, Werewolf, The Mummy, The Phantom, Mr Hyde, The Blob, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, The Brides of Dracula, as well as some original ‘monsters’. 72 pieces of artwork were created. As well as some special art for some of the chase cards. I may post a list of some of the characters but I don’t want to give too much away just yet.
The series features 72 pieces of brand new fabulous monster art created by yours truly. Each Hobby display box of cards will contain 20 packs. Each pack will have 7 randomly inserted cards and 1 sticker card as well as bubble gum in a clear wrapper. Yes there will also be some puzzle cards making a bigger picture with 9 cards. I did not go with wax packs because the wax packs can be sealed again after opening them. The card pack does have that throwback feel. The size of all the cards are standard 2.5″ x 3.5″.
These cards are high quality cards. My cards could be printed at 24×36 inches and still look amazing because I draw them that big. So scaled down they look even better. Produced and made by the same manufacturers responsible for the cards you find at Walmart, Target and other retailers across the country. This is a project I am using kickstarter to help with funding, not a kickstarter card series that is made just for kickstarter sales. These cards will be on sale at Amazon and Walmart starting next spring. If people love them, then I may do a series 2. My plans are to do a comic book with these characters after the card series in sent to the printers.
