You might recall I put together a little 9-card Stranger Things custom set of my own back in September. Travis at PunkRockPaint recently one-upped me with an impeccably crafted set complete with throwback box and wrappers.
You cardsphere old-timers likely remember PunkRockPaint as a fun blog featuring lots of cool customs and the like. (He's a Padres fan too! A Padres card-collector who makes quirky customs? It's like I have a twin!) Sadly, he doesn't blog much anymore, but you can still find him on Twitter, @PunkRockPaint.
Travis put out a really cool Star Wars inspired baseball sticker set a few months back, and I nearly pulled the trigger, but ultimately held off. This time he was offering his Stranger Things sets pre-ordered for the price of a blaster, and I went for it.
Comes in a cool box similar to old retail boxes of packs. Took a pic of me holding it so you can get a sense of scale.
4 packs, but 2 are dupes besides the alternate wrapper, so you get 2 complete sets of cards total.
Even the wrappers look pretty authentic!
Here's the first pack. Love the police cards! The fake Eggo gum is a nice touch.
Second pack in highlighted by faux stickers.
Here's a taste of the backs. As you can see, I got set #35 out of 100 produced (I think they've sold out already). I'm excited to take some time giving the cards a closer look and reading everything shortly.
So yeah, there you go. Awesome set of customs paying tribute to one of the best shows of the year. Great work, Travis!
