Hi..

I collected some of the earlier gaming cards from 1994, not to play but for the art work,

I was fortune to meet with K.Parkinson at the 1995 OZcon,  which brings me to my question..did anyone collect the "guardians"

My excuse so I can try out the picture side of things..

Is this a bit like Magic the Gathering cards? Is Parkinson the artist?

Nice. Brings back memories.

 

I use to have some of these as a kid, then my parents sold them at a garage sale...
