Like many I went and seen the newest resurrection of Halloween.  Overall I was pleased with the newest chapter of the franchise, especially seeing Jamie Lee Curtis back in the fold.  A couple of days later it had me popping in my VHS copy of John Carpenter's original 1978 Halloween.  Revisiting the classic inspired me to give the original masterpiece some cardboard love.

Originally I figured I would use a 1978 Topps baseball inspired design especially seeing as I've not yet used it for anything.  Just to cover my bases I refreshed my memory on a what the 1978 Topps football set looked like and I knew within a split second that a '78 Topps baseball inspired design would just have to wait.

I know I've said it before but I'm always a fan of using designs that have rounded frames.  Rounded frames just instantly gives the design a cool retro look.  The colors were easy.  Gotta be orange and black.  The Steelers scheme on the '78 cards actually worked perfect with the light blue name color fill adding a nice contrast for the eye.

I finished the cards with a white border but decided
to also get a look at them with a black border for a spookier vibe and absolutely loved that tweak.
