Cards From The Night Owl — Now In 3-D!

Night Owl from Night Owl Cards and I swapped a few cards, and I was surprised by what I found when I opened the package after getting back from my Omaha business trip: Topps cards now have DEPTH!

No longer was flat, 2-dimensional cardboard sufficient for “The Monopoly”. No, these cards jump right out at you…literally. If you look at the scan, you can see the sweeping motion of F-Bomb’s delivery accentuated by the corner-to-corner curl of the flashy chrome card. Alex Burnett’s 6′ height is visually enhanced by the top of the card bending away from you as you hold it. Yessiree, there is no way Spock would be able to sneak up on Topps in the Mutara Nebula!

Thanks again for the trade, Night Owl. Looking forward to seeing the next great advance in card technology. Spellcheck, maybe?

  1. You’re suggesting Topps was inspired by the Wrath of Khan for its Chrome curl this year?

    Shame on us for our two-dimensional criticism.
