CAVEMAN!

Hey, look what I just found on ebay!
An unopened pack of 1975 CAVEMAN! cards! Oh man, I loved these.
Back in the day, it was pretty much between these and Wacky Packages for me and my friends.


And the hard to find card #18



Nawww....just kidding. :)
This week's Drawergeeks challenge is "cavemen". After I did my "Cavey vs. the Dino" that I posted on Monday, I had the idea to re-imagine it as a cool series of trading cards that existed...er, never existed, in the 60's-70's.
Collect 'em all!

You had me fooled. I was actually thinking, "I don't remember those cards..."

Ha. A friend of mine just wrote me and said the same thing.... Honest, I wasn't really tryin to fool anyone...

Man, what if I start some sort of mass hysteria over this, like Orson Welles with the War of the Worlds?

Is this coming out? Where do you get these?

Yancy Street said...

A- Well so far you only get them here...
But I'm talking to some folks...and you might be able to hold 'em and trade 'em for real sometime soon.
Maybe. :)
Thanks for asking!
