Some of these are a little same-y with just the classic orange cover and it would be nice if there were a few less super obscure authors, but overall I really like these. They're very different and a little kooky, very fun to send friends. There are a couple I want to get matted and framed for even more awesome!

Just fantastic, each card is a doorway into amazing histories and eventual movies, etc. I took each card and looked up the Wikipedia entry on it and ended up with a DIY Sci-Fi home-schooling education. 100 cards, no repeats.

great cardstock, but a lot of the images/authors/covers are very obscure. i was hoping for some classics, but it's mostly pulp.

very cool selection of vintage covers

Very interesting
