RRParksCARDS has announced his (Richard Parks) latest series of collectible cards. There's currently a Kickstarter Project to fund the production of the official Sharknado Trading Card Series. In cooperation with The SYFY Channel and The Asylum, the project will only be funded if it reaches its goal by Friday, August 31st 2018 at 11PM ET (it's already surpassed that goal).
This is the first series and it features Sharknado and Sharknado 2 (series two will feature Sharknado 3 and Sharknado 4 and series three will feature Sharknado 5 and Sharknado 6). There are TWO base sets in this series - the first base set is a 90-card set of Sharknado and the second is a 90-card set of Sharknado 2. And there's a special "Bloody Subset" featuring gooey, nasty scenes of sharkish mayhem (with a special coating so the blood shimmers when cards are held at a light source). Also, there will be a 3D anaglyph 18 card subset, 4 Faux Film Cell cards, 4 different Genuine Movie-Used Costume Prop Relic Cards, 12 Full Metal Box Topper Cads produced by Faerie Metal, 9 Limited Edition Special Commission Portrait Cards with Puzzle Backs, Printing Plate Cards, Sketch Cards, and rare Progressive Proof cards.
There are various funding levels available, but the first one - where you get everything - is at the $160.00 level.
As I say with all Kickstarter projects I post about. Remember...this is not a pre-order. There are many instances of crowd funded projects that have been funded never making good on their promised goods. So back all Kickstarters with caution. (I've backed several RRParksCARDS Kickstarters and have received everything with little/no delays).
