Another Night of the Living Dead Card Set

Currently on Kickstarter is another small 18 card Night of the Living Dead set. The fronts feature each of the original lobby cards and the reverse will feature some sort of text about the movie (yet to be determined.) Cards are being designed by Richard Fowlks who did the Drive-In Double Feature set with help from Jim Cirronella who designed the very rare Living Dead Festival autograph cards.

I'm sure it's going to be an awesome set, but I wish you didn't have to contribute to the $229 level to get it. Frown

I understand that some people collect VHS and a sizable number still have VCR's but is offering a VHS version really an attractive prize? And yeah, offering 18 cards only at the $229 level must mean they want only die-hards with money to burn.

It actually says that the cards are produced by RJF, the folks who did the prior Kickstarter card sets.

I know it says "Kickstarter exclusive" but do we know for sure that these are not cards which RJF previously released through their own Kickstarters ?

I have word that the cards will be available as an add-on soon. So you should be able to contribute at a lower level then just add the cards alone. That is what I plan to do!

Yes, the VHS card set will be a completely new set, consisting of 18 lobby card fronts and there will be text, possibly trivia about the film, on the reverse. Jim Cirronella who designed the Living Dead Festival cards is creating the text for the backs and RJF the rest of the card.

The trading cards will be available as an add-on soon. I think you will be able to order multiple copies of the set also, which means some folks here could sell/trade to those who don't back the VHS products.

The horror VHS market is very niche, but within that niche it's a REALLY big deal. The horror community has embraced the VHS era like no other.

Does anyone know when they will do the card add-on option ? Doesn't seem to be anything yet.

I received the following response this evening concerning the NOTLD card set:

We're a bit behind on revealing stretch goals and Add-On items, but the campaign has been very successful thus far and we just reached the first stretch goal today.

The trading card set will be available as an Add-On item, either just before the campaign wraps up or afterward. Just pledge at whatever item level you wish and you will **definitely** be able to add the trading card set later on, without having to pledge at the DVD Level. You'll also have the option to buy more than one set of cards.

Please spread the word to the other card collectors, too. Thanks!

I know there are some movies that came out on VHS but have not made it to DVD for various legal reasons. There is a following really into anime VHS as well. Do some people find relaxation in rewinding?

Same - I have dealt directly with Image Ten members like Gary Streiner previously as well as the card designers, Richard Fowlks and Jim Cirronella and trust that they will get us the cards. I can only imagine that Marilyn Eastman's recent passing has something to do with the hold-up. I'd recommend to anyone interested in the cards, to pledge to the level they choose and be sure to request the cards. I don't represent the businesses involved but I believe this will be okay.

The problem is (unless I am wrong) if you pledge, for example, $ 40 now and the Kickstarter ends without the card add on option, I don't think Kickstarter will allow you to pay extra money after it is over for additional items, namely the cards. They will charge you $ 40 when it ends on Aug 27, and that is it.
