Why haven’t you bought these yet?
I received my Galactic Greats card set from Punk Rock Paint today, and I have to tell you, I have never been happier with an unofficial Star Wars product! A mashup of baseball and the greatest movie franchise ever, Travis really outdid himself with these cards. Each 30-card set features a Fleer sticker-styled front, re-imagining the thirty Major League Baseball teams for the Star Wars universe. Travis posted several teasers on his Twitter feed, but they are infinitely cooler in-hand. The reverse side of each has a “Baseball’s Galactic Greats” cartoon, featuring everyone from R2-D2 to Padme Amidala to Finn. Hands-down, this is one of the greatest parody trading card sets ever made.
I do not know if a 1/1 color test proof is included in each order, but I was very happy to receive the Jakku Reys/Cincinnati Reds color test proof in the package. But there was another bonus as well…
A blank-back 1981-style Darth Vader of the Lord Sithies! A very pleasant surprise, indeed!
If you have not ordered your own set of Galactic Greats cards, you need to do it pronto! Only 66 sets were produced, and they are still in stock at the Punk Rock Paint store as of this writing.
