Star Trek - The Retro Football Card Set Returns!

Back in 2011, I premiered my series of Star Trek characters in old football designs, inspired by another blogger who was very active back then.  This is the first in a "reprint" of that series.

September 2011
These are the premiere releases from my tribute to PunkRockPaint's Star Wars... The Retro Baseball card set.  I commented there that I was inspired to do a Trek football set but didn't want to copy his idea.  The response was that it wouldn't be copying, it would be an homage, so here we go...

 
 
The first ever football set design (1935 National Chicle) for the most important characters - the captains.

As soon as I saw Rockne's head, I knew which character would go there...

Very cool! When it comes to Star Trek, I'm an original series or bust kind of guy... that being said, I really dig the Locutus card.

Absolutely love these. There's plenty of Star Wars love out there, the world needs more Star Trek customs!
