There's been a couple of times I've come up with a custom card idea that I can't believe I didn't think of earlier. Add this card to that list.
Remember that scene in Back to the Future where Michael J. Fox appears to Crispin Glover as Darth Vader the extraterrestrial from the planet Vulcan? I went out on a limb thinking some Stars Wars fans may have also seen BTTF and could appreciate a good custom trading card mashup.

I wanted to get this set done in time to have it out last month when the 13th fell on a Friday, but I just couldn't get it in under the wire. So, I held onto it figuring an October release would be the next best thing.
Other than that though I really do like this chapter of the Friday The 13th franchise. I like that Jason has a little different aesthetic wearing a burlap sack as opposed to the trademark hockey mask. I also like it because it's one of the only movies where he's killing actual campers, which is part of the Jason Voorhees shtick. Jason technically only does that in this movie and again in Part VI.
To coincide with the year the movie was released I went with a 1981 Donruss inspired design. This is only the second time I've used this charmingly vintage looking template; the first time coming with my Freaks an Geeks set. I outfitted all of the cards with a blue border as a tie-in to Jason's blue flannel shirt.
I've included a special addition to this set. There's 3 two-card puzzles, and when you combine those 6 cards they make another puzzle on the back side.
You can get your set HERE.
