Luke Skyywalker

This custom card is pretty straight forward.  It was a "duh" moment when I came across my 2 Live Crew As Nasty As They Wanna Be cassette tape while going through some of my old "junk boxes".  I guess the reason I hadn't thought of this as a custom card until now is that Luther Campbell hasn't used the moniker "SkyYwalker" since 1990 when Star Wars creator George Lucas filed suit against him for copyright infringement.  

An older cousin of mine bought me -with my allowance money- the dirty version of As Nasty As They Wanna Be on cassette, and boy did I think I was a hard-ass for listening to it.  The double platinum album was super explicit for its time being the first album ever to be deemed "legally obscene".  I would have to believe some 32 years later, with a song like "WAP" reaching #1 on the Billboard Hot 100, that any track on As Nasty As They Wanna Be would be looked at as par for where music is these days.

This card is of course done in the style of the 1983 Topps Return of the Jedi set.
