Check out this Kickstarter for collectible retro computer trading cards - 8-bits from the 1980s

I'm a sucker for trading cards - of any kind. I have Kiss cards, Tank Girl comics cards, and all my whacky Packs from when I was a kid. Mis in 8-bit computers and you have me hooked. Check out this Kickstarter for retro computer trading cards.

Retro 8-bit computers This set appears they have over 30 cards, but I'm not even sure how many retro computers there were in those days. It seems that this project is fairly open to expansion in terms of adding more CPUs to the deck. One can only hope that it will catch on and we'll see moe technology card sets. But for now, this one looks pretty cool.

It's also worth noting that this project ha already met it's funding goal - times ten! So, if retro computers are your thing, this might be a fun item to add to your collection.

From the 8BitKick website:
These machines inspired a whole generation, by bringing computers to the homes of millions for the first time. This project is just a small tribute, but a fun and nostalgic one. The first machine I met was the Commodore PET.

As a kid I programmed a BBC Micro, then an Acorn Archimedes. Not to mention playing with my friends on their Amiga, Atari ST, or ZX Spectrum. If these names mean something to you, get involved!


As I said, I'm a sucker for trading cards, but check out the site and Kickstarter info and see if you crave a copy. As an info junkie, I'd be all for having info on both sides, but this seems like the sort of project that could evolve into a much larger set of cards.
