While on the Allen and Ginter subset ideas I decided to pull a draft that has been sitting around for a while.
In addition to being a card collector and fan of stand-up i am also somewhat of sci fi nerd, specifically with my reading (not that I get too do much reading with two little ones in the house.) I think a set with character from classic sci fi novels, movies and TV would be pretty sweet. Here is my list of character:
Prince Vultan (Flash Gordon)
William Mandella (The Forever War)
John Perry (Old Mans war) There could be an SP version of Old John.
The planet Arrakis (Dune)
The Enterprise (original series)
Frank Chalmers (Red Mars)
John Carter (A Princess of Mars)
Rama (Rendezvous with Rama, etc…)
The Monolith (2001)
Rick Deckard (Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep/Blade Runner)
Martian Tri-pod (The War of the Worlds)
The Time Traveler (The Time Machine)
The Doctor (Doctor Who, the 7th Doctor)
Hank Morgan (A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court)
Kyle Reese (The Terminator)
Starbuck (Battlestar Galactica)
Billy Pilgrim (Slaughter House Five)
Felix Hoenikker (Cats cradle)
I would also do a set of Sci Fi authors
Arthur C Clarke
Philip K Dick
John Scalzi (granted he lacks the cred of the others, but hey they put Christian Laettner on the Dream Team so I am putting Scalzi here, plus Old Man’s War is one of my favorites)
I would also have a card with Heinlein, Asimov and Clarke as the three masters of Sci Fi.
Kinda nerdy I know, but then again it’s not like card collecting isn’t nerdy.
