Ep. 70: Steve Brownlie of Ray Gun Cards
On the program we visit with Stephen (Steve) Brownlie from Glasgow, Scotland. A big Star Wars and movie fan, he began making his own custom trading cards as a cheaper way to seek out autographs by mail, since the shipping and customs fees often dwarfed the cost of the autograph itself. Little by little he began creating more cards of actors who were on the convention circuit and for movies that didn’t have cards of their own. Due to the demand of other folks who liked his creations, he opened up a storefront so people could order more easily. We talk growing up with Star Wars, trading cards and the process of making his own entry into the card universe.

Kareem Dharsee is a member of ORDER 416, a Toronto based cosplay group. He goes into how they formed, his take on Star Wars Cosplay and his excitement on getting to be a part of the Salaam Fandom panel at the recent NY City Comic-Con. I first met Kareem, Daniel and Reno at Star Wars Celebration and featured a brief conversation with them on Episode 7, the Celebration episode. Although there are many official and unofficial cosplay groups, I like the openness, and welcoming and fun aspect they bring to the fandom. Since Celebration, I have seen a number of great characters featured by Kareem and Order 416 on his Instagram page, @kareems.dreams as well as the ORDER 416 one. We learn about his experience there and more about his journey and of course the cos and cross play.

We first heard from Josh back during our Celebration Episode in April (#7) and then again in June at our visit to Joliet’s Star Wars Day (#11). Over the course of time he has been working from a master spreadsheet that he has a link to on his Instagram page, @consumethecanon. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1bpDy0rpqDR5CQQzt89XLdkHAgoHENt-JBoONYvM0l3I/htmlview I am a big fan of folks in our community who are doing cool projects like this. Plus we learn a lot about how to use apps and you local library to check out books, trade paperbacks, audiobooks, etc. and really cut down on the cost of enjoying content from a galaxy far, far away.

Ep. 17: The Mexican Star Wars cards
We talk with Kevin Munnings of Tusken Trader Company or @tuskentraderco on Instagram about the Mexican versions of the Topps Star Wars cards that were released in the late 70’s. Due to many reasons, including the number of cards per pack, the gum included and the general availability, they were not easy to come by and very rare to find these days without paying a pretty penny. Kevin has put a ton of effort into reproducing the cards digitally so you can see what the cards and boxes looked like and if you want you can buy and print sheets for yourself. He does mini sized versions and even some cool LEGO diorama cards that would make a great addition to anyone’s collection.

Collecting Star Wars cards
We get down to basics and talk about getting your Star Wars card collection going and how to go about it. Why do we collect? Where do we buy cards? Which cards should we get? How much am I spending? How do I take care of my collection? Should I get everything?   Look, although your collection is inherently yours, there are some things you may want to consider before you dive in for the first time, or dive back in. I don’t have all the answers, but I can talk about the way I collect and some things I might have done differently if I started over again.   I enjoy opening packs, assembling a base set, and occasionally finding a cool autograph or sketch card. I sometimes buy full sets from eBay, sometimes from folks I find in collecting groups. There’s a lot of ways to do it. First and foremost, I hope you collect for fun. That’s why I got into it back in the day, and why I got back into it a number of years ago. I hope you enjoy the episode. It’s a little evergreen, meaning, that someone could find this a year or more from now, and still get something out of it. That was the intention.   If you have any feedback or tips for collectors, you can put a comment in the post for the episode and/or send the feedback via email to greg@rebelbasecard.com https://www.amazon.com/Star-Wars-Original-Topps-Trading/dp/1419711725/ref=sr_1_1_sspa?keywords=topps+star+wars&qid=1564083647&s=digital-text&sr=1-1-spons&psc=1

Part two of the podcast is a small part of the interview I was able to do with Topps sketch card artist Ben AbuSaada who will be at SWCC as an attendee. He’ll give some thoughts on how he does cons and tips on visiting artists who booth there. This was part of a larger interview that will be a future episode, but it made sense to put this bit here.
