Night of Dark Shadows trading cards

I was saving these for an announcement of the DVD/Blu releases of House of Dark Shadows and Night of Dark Shadows. It's beginning to look like those release dates have been pushed to next year and I'm incredibly impatient. So, here's what the wrapper for Night of Dark Shadows trading cards might have looked like, as well as a few sample cards. Click on the images for a closer look.

These were modeled on the designs of the Star Wars cards from Topps and, to a smaller extent, the King Kong series. The concept for my Night of Dark Shadows cards is that Topps didn't understand what kind of movie they were dealing with and settled on a colorful, lively design that screamed "Youth Market!"

Note: For those of you tuning in late, no trading cards were ever produced for the original Dark Shadows films. These are my own creations, let loose upon Google to sow confusion and havoc in the collectors world. (I actually just created these for fun but you know how collectors are.)
