Ghostbusters 30th Anniversary Playing CardsSeptember 12th, 2014
It being the 30th anniversary of Ghostbusters, there’s all sorts of fun stuff swirling around recently. From Ecto-1 LEGO sets to rumors of a reboot with the cast of Bridesmaids (that could actually be funny), it’s a good time to be a Ghostbusters fan. Now, if you pledge within the next week, you can get yourself some really cool Ghostbusters playing cards too.
The talented card artists from Albino Dragon managed to secure the rights to produce these custom playing cards inspired by the movie. The cards are beautifully illustrated, with cartoon-style images of Venkman, Spengler, Stantz and Zeddemore as the Kings, Normal Dana, Gatekeeper Dana, and Janine (the secretary) as the Queens (I wonder who the remaining queen will be), and the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man, Louis Tully, Walter Peck and Slimer as the Jacks. Hmmm. I always thought of Slimer as more of a Joker.
The cards will be printed by the U.S. Playing Card Company, so they’re sure to be excellent quality. $15(USD) will score you a deck of Ghostbusters playing cards, but you’ll want to move quickly, as their Kickstarter project wraps up on September 19, 2014. Sadly, they’re only shipping to U.S. addresses since they don’t have the international rights.
