Retrospace Trading Cards #3: Major League Whore Cards



I'm really hoping no one takes offense at this, but I just couldn't help myself.  The idea of Whore trading cards just just struck me as extremely humorous (yes, I know, I'm easily amused).  I tried my best to make them look like those old cards from the seventies, as legit as possible.  Anyway, I hope you get a kick out this set. Enjoy.

  1. You're right on the money. These are humorous, but I had to re-read the post before I figured out they weren't real. Please tell me the next post will reveal the backs of these cards...please.

  2. I was surprised to find no groupies or TV/movie camp followers in the mix. Still it was a great post.

  3. The NASCAR Wench inset should be a photo of her crotch.

  4. Funny! But I have one quibble: Why did you use a Raiders of the Lost Ark-ish font for your logo? Think early '70s, man! Hobo, Cooper, Marquee, Revue – any of those would work much better.

  5. Fantastic cards! The design is very much like the 70's cards I remember. However (and correct me if I'm wrong), the use of the word "hoe" instead of "whore" was not in common use in the seventies.

  6. Absolutely hilarious. Would these packs come with a stick of gum or, um...something else? ;-)

  8. Dear Mr. Gilligan,

    I am extremely outraged at this posting. Your blog is usually a mix of good memories and bad fashion. I enjoy a joke as much as the next guy, but to post women like whores is very offens...

    ...lol! Nah, just kidding. Awesome post.
