Not so much a project, as it is a collecting theme -- magicians on trading cards. All of these people have performed magic at a serious or professional level at some point.


Cool theme idea.
You can maybe add a Steve Martin card to the collection. He did it at Disneyland for a few years.

That's a great-looking page.

I once saw Andrew Yang ridicule bing.com but I have noticed that you can get a different mix of results in a bing search including some relevant ones that didn't appear in a google search. It's often worth doing.

Haha! I wish. Many different search criteria on the google machine. Was actually going to use the one sitting in the chair for Samantha until I found the one at the bottom. The one of Barbara Bouchet was a last minute find as well.

I'd like to see more design formats.


Not sure if we are looking at the same BO thread but those are pretty much from the same person and yeah....he seems to be stuck in a design rut. The ink doesn't seem to take well on some of them either. The two I have are the thickness of a costume card but I got them from someone else. A home solution that can print like that is major bucks. If someone is printing for him he may not have many options. Or he is just a big Rittenhouse fan. Big Grin

For me the image I decide to use often determines what it is going to look like. But I am in that phase where I am still making a list of do's and don'ts. Smokin'

No, this is part of what I was talking about. A project most certainly is collecting in very specific groups. I'm currently putting Bond Girls in groups of the actor who played Bond.

Where did the Harry Anderson come from, don't recognize that design?

Is that Stephen Fry? Pretty sure he has an autograph card.

In either The Hobbit or Lord of the Rings.

Oh yeah, I've got a number of Steve Martin cards. He's in StarPics SNL, Little Shop of Horrors, Sgt Peppers, Inkworks Looney Tunes (including an auto), Playboy Chromium Covers, Warner Brothers promos, and probably more.
The collection is much bigger than these two pages. I just linked these because I had recently posted them to a FB magic collecting group, and could paste in the URLs easily.

It's from a board gamed, called "Face to Face", I believe. He's also got some Leaf Pop Century signed cards, which I'm sure you knew about.

Yes, that's Stephen Fry, from the Cryptozoic The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug (and yes, he's got an auto in the set.) While he was hosting the British quiz show QI, he did some magic tricks on screen. This resulted in his becoming a member of the British magician's society, The Magic Circle. (Prince Charles is also a member.)

Ran through a couple different designs but finally settled on this one.

Not sure if Topps is ever going to continue with the Walking Dead. Decided to create this for a local Con in April

Currently have my home printer cranking out 28pt card stock.

Beautiful!
One of my top 10 all time favorite movies.

Yeah definitely a major influence on the modern science fiction film era.

Much thanks to RA for preserving a cast that is 66 years old.

That looks really nice. I also have that Anne Francis card, that is very nice as well.

We can only hope that one day the lost footage of her doing the "Morbius Strip" dance sequence is found!

Congrats on getting all those signed cards, but I have a bone to pick on your choice of background.

That ain't Robbie. Robbie was a nice boy. Big Grin If that's an authentic image from a promo, someone was playing around for maximum effect because it's not even close to the actual scene.

That's from the original one-sheet, trying to draw the people inside!

I sure wish I had one of those!

Yeah, if I remember correctly Robbie carried Warren Stevens in after he tried the machine, not sure if he ever picked up Anne Francis. I did see that image on the Wiki page. Robbie should be insulted. Big Grin I remember once having found an original Robbie the Robot battery operated model a long time ago. I think it's worth something, but darned if I have any idea where it went.

I just counted.
I have 13 Robbie the Robots and an equal or greater number of B-9 robots, plus other, miscellaneous robots.
I don't WANT to have them, but they MAKE me buy them!!!!!!

I did play with a few different designs. Being a fan of posters using images that never happen in the film but used to draw people into the theater I thought this one was fun. Smile

I still love the film but being brainwashed by so many great soundtracks over the years I find the sound effects to be a bit annoying. Has anyone ever re-scored it? Robby sounds like a hand crank calculator. Big Grin

Always thought a modern prequel could be interesting.
