Numero Group: By The Numbers


2011 Numero Trading Cards

It seems like half a decade since we first dreamed up our Donruss-inspired set of trading cards. Actually, it was 2008. Then we followed it up with a set of Light: On The South Side cards. We took 2010 off for lack of appropriate content, but we’re back with a vengeance in 2011. Look at that spread above. We fuckin’ wept when those rolled off the truck this morning. And then we wept again hand collating the sets. Who ever thought there would be a Tonistics rookie card?

We’ve made only 300 complete sets, hand numbered natch. Posters are limited to 50, numbered again. Of course you can always try to complete your own set by buying our records (one card per release), but that’s a daunting task that we’ve never heard completed.

We’ll be selling them at our yard sale tomorrow between 9AM-3PM, but those outside of Chicagoland can pick them up at our website now.

Extended series:

We found this sick photo of Lou Ragland that falls outside of our I Travel Alone set coming out next March. Look at that jacket!

Romancing you indeed. Here’s the video that jacket inspired in 1991:
