Vile Valentines Trading Cards

This is my newest set of limited edition hand made trading cards. Each uses the classic non-sports card formula of "Funny" caption with a creepy image. The backs are similarly based on the old standard of having really terrible jokes. Like the Spookshow Funnies set, there are 50 of each card being made, but no back variations this time, as I figured out a lot of the hiccups prior to printing these. The promo card is completely different though, there were 9 made, and it reflects my original idea of doing the backs similar to the SF set, but it just seemed like too much of a repeat so I changed it last minute.

The wrapper is used on a full set, and even contains a stick of pink gum!

This is the back variation on the nine promo cards

  3. Wow! cool stuff. I had to go back and read the fine print to realize these were new original creations and not some vintage find. Nice.

  4. Thanks Everyone! I really tried to nail the back style of the vintage cards.
