First of all, because this lets us keep both manufacturing(for us) and purchasing(for you) costs low.
Second reason is the artwork. All 64 players are fully hand drawn by Paolo Samarelli, a famous Italian sport illustrator (take a look at his numerous works over the last 30 years on the net). This gives a nostalgic touch to the game, way far from the digital feelings we are used to nowadays.
Last, but not least reason, is to keep an open door to the possibility to create your own print and play teams, with the pictures you love, thanks to the online creator we hope to be implemented after this campaign. So, help us reaching that stretch goal!
