Does anyone own any? If so, will you post some pictures. I just found out about some supposedly coming out in June. I saw the one of Avery on his Facebook page. What do you think? Will anyone start buying them? I wonder if they'll help the sport grow.

i would buy them
I know Wil West of Huntington Beach , CA. that makes them. Discards. http://discards.org/home.html

That 'card' looks more like a bookmark...with a certified autograph? Will the pros still sign a disc, tshirt, woman's breast, and/or hat if these 'cards' are out there???

And, the fancy scroll work around the 'card' and the old-timey font face at the bottom of these 'cards' looks too retro for me...

No need to hate...just wondering...just my opinion.

I think the retro is a refreshing change from the trendy tattoo or tie dye looking images that are found everywhere in the disc golf graphic world. GO TEAM JENKINS
I haven't seem any of these or heard of them, but that would be cool if they made cards like that.
I want DG to grow and gain more attention, but this is just silly. I would not buy them, however, I would laugh at those who do:)

I have hundreds of his regular card and many of the other more rare versions of the same card including the autos the relics, the black parallel mini, the A&G parallel mini, the regular mini, a red auto, a silk mini and a one of a kind 3 card mini black parallel strip with authentication from topps . . . If anyone is still looking to pick up some of these I am happy to sell some of them, but I am keeping a minimum of one of each card for my own collection of disc golf memorabilia

 

I would buy them. I may be an idiot, but when i am in to something, I get into it. I still have baseball, basketball, and football cards from when I was collecting those in the mid 1980's. No different here, other than they show the Best of all sports. :)
I bought one off e bay awhile back,pretty cool.I use it to promote the sport to my friends who know nothing about the game.There take is usually hey if a Disc golfer can get his own card its gotta be worth checking out.So kudos to the people making them.
The old timey thing is Topps resurrecting an old baseball card brand name/style to highlight the more fringe sports out there.  There are 3 versions of Avery's card that I know of:  Regular, Autographed and the Relic card which includes a small piece of one of Avery's discs.

From top to bottom these are:

1) The Regular Mini Variation (has card #73 on back)

2) The Bazooka Mini Variation serial numbered 22/25 (only 25 made)

3) The Black Mini Variation (more rare than the Ad Back but less than the No #)

4) The Ad Back Mini Variation (more rare than the Regular Mini but less rare than the Black)

5) The No # Mini Variation (only 50 made) the only difference to the regular mini is there is no # 73 on the back

6) The ragular base issue card #73, personally signed by Avery because I gave him some of these cards to give away.

7) The Autographed Framed Mini Variation (I believe 200 of these were made and signed)

8) The Red Ink Auto serial #'d 06/10 (From the Rip Cards . . .only 10 of these made)

9) The Silk Framed Mini Variation serial #'d 01/10 (The gold #ering is on the left side in the red part of the card)

10) The Black Three Card Mini Strip with Topps Vault Certificate of Authenticity (1 of a kind item)

11) The Relic Mini Variation (this one is with the Teal (Firebird I think) that he used during his World Championship. There is also another version where he used 5 of his Red Star Destroyers to make more of these cards. The teal one is 80% more rare because it was only 1 disc whereas the red were much more prevalent.

I have yet to see the Wood Mini Variation come through anywhere

These are from a set of (I think it was 30) "World champions" from the year avery won worlds. There were ones of the top rated/champions from all kinds of fringe "sports" like darts, billards, fencing...etc., kind of cool.  The relics are from two of his discs he threw too win worlds, I know one was a champ destroyer and I don't remember what the other one was (teebird?)

Allen and Ginter is a Topps brand (a throwback form way back in the day) they put out every year, but that was the only year too have a "world champs" subset.
