Indiana Jones Trading Cards























From time to time I like to just straight up steal blog posts from other blogs. Today is one of those times. So feast your eyes on some cool Indiana Jones trading cards Topps is putting out. If you follow that link you'll find 4 sheets of cards. From the illustrator's blog: "They are one of a kind original sketches that will be inserted in every box of cards (one per box), along with autographed cards by Harrison Ford, Steven Spielberg, George Lucas and others who worked on the films." I'm not a 12-year old kid, so I'm not going to drop any money on these things, but what is impressive is how perfectly the artist, Patrick Schoenmaker, captures the essence of these characters with just a few well-placed lines.

My personal favorite: Melty-Face Nazi at the top.

It looks like they paid some lazy illustrator twenty bucks to doodle a sketch of some Indie characters much like one of those crappy characterture artists at the local fair growing up. They're amusing sketches, but is that the kind of feeling you want to get from an Indie baseball card? Amusing? Are those movies mostly noted for their amusing qualities? No. All they need do is look to the one-sheet for inspiration on how to illustrate something in the vein of Indiana Jones, ladies and gentlemen.

Epic fail.

I disagree, Heath - Epic win! Those are awesome.

I wish the new Jones movie was animated.

And I disagree with you, too, Brian. I am 12 years old and I will drop some money on these.

With taste like that, you must also be a BC Tour Guide, Craigers.

I prefer nude cards with hot sex acts in animation.

Imagine Indiana Jones cards with dirty sex acts, now there's a hot idea... I bet the Willie Scott ones would make your head spin. Here's hoping for a card where she's getting porked doggystyle by Lao Che. That's what I'm into.

Guys, relax on the sex talk already. Jesus Christ. There are twelve year olds reading this shit.

Then they might learn a thing or two about life.
