I know they released one in the mid 80's. But with all the new art, I'd LOVE a 200+ card set. Just start with the 25th line and go up(maybe skip ROC? :) )

Maybe less info for the back, but indicate what line they were from, hell i'd like to know the artist that did the paintings. Couple of chase cards signed by Larry Hama or the actual artist that designed/painted/sculpted the character/figure.

Would you guy/gals be interested?

Maybe.

Which feels like such a crappy cop-out answer, but there you have it. *shrug*

No it's cool. i'm guessing most won't be for it, but i've been surprised before. I'd buy a box tomorrow!

I'm gonna have to say no. Non-sport cards are really played out. I'd rather just have a nice hardcover with the art and info in it.

Save all the non-sport cards for the kiddies' CCGs.

And for the reeeeally big geeks.

What I'd really like is a set of mini posters of the ROC & POC card art. Especially the Jungle B.A.T., TRU Snow Serpent, Charbroil, Flash & all the females.

so a poster book? maybe over-sized pages so they are not folded, but perforated pages. Like older rolling stones dimensions? say 9x12?

do a series, 100 pages/posters per book?

i like where this is going.

Yeah, that would be awesome! As long as it's strictly the card art. I wouldn't want comic art mixed in. I love the new art they've been using on the ROC & POC cards. I would freakin LOVE a Charbroil poster. And the Snow Serpent art on the TRU exclusive card is beyond awesome.

Heh,all of a sudden I feel like using my old sig again

Yeah. I have the 80s set that was a game of just the 82 line, I have a deck that my uncle gave me that was of the 60s Soilder, Marine, Frogman and Pilot. And I have the Imperial set from 91, plus some of the live action ones that came with some of the Marvel comics.

I'd buy it. Hell, I was dissappointed there wasn't one for the movie. Everybody else's movie got cards. We should have got dog tags too, like transformers or star wars or whoever eles.

I know of 4 sets not counting the 25th playing cards:

1987 set (dunno who made it--have some TF cards)
Comic Images set (have a few singles from this set)
1991 Impel
WOTC CCG and upgrade set.


They look good signed, though.
