Maker Hacker Trading Cards: Series 1…

This is fun – Maker Hacker Trading Cards. Phil (pt) the creative director here at Adafruit wanted to do a series at MAKE with all their makers at the first Maker Faire back in 2006, we’d still love to get a Mr. Jalopy rookie card!

You know, I never really got into Baseball cards as a kid. I do remember liking the stale gum in the Top’s packs you would get as you were checking out at the grocerystore, but never cared to much for the cards. One summer my dad got us a full set of Donruss cards, and we put all the cards in protective sheets in an album. That was pretty much the extent on my baseball trading card days.  I had a few friends who were fanatical, but I just couldn’t get into it. I’d rather go take apart a telephone and make my own electromagnet or shocker.

A couple weeks ago I was reminiscing about this and was thinking that maybe it wasnt the cards them self, but more the subject mater.  I’ve never really been a sports guy. So I thought that it would be cool to have trading cards for Maker’s and Hackers. Maker Hacker Trading cards if you will.  I decided to make a few to see how they would look.
