A Word from Walter about the Book!

Content

This book is all about the first year of trading cards from The Walter Day Collection. Not only will the book focus on all of the cards released, but also has stories about Walter Day from those people involved. This is the ultimate tribute to everything Walter Day has accomplished with this series of cards.

Cover Art

We were lucky enough to have the legendary artist Dan Tearle draw a rendition of Walter for the cover of this book. Dan has been involved in lots of projects over the years, including working at Topps with an amazing Star Wars series.

There are at least 4 classic Twin Galaxies references on this cover. Can you spot them all?

The Goal of this Project

Upon funding of this project, and coverage of all printing/shipping of the books, all proceeds will go directly to Walter Day himself. This is the best thing we can do as a thank Walter for everything he has done for the gaming community. 

If you have any questions, feel free to ask in the comments and please share with anyone passionate about gaming. Thanks!

~ Jeffrey Wittenhagen and Todd Friedman

Risks and challenges

The timeline for this is very far in the future on purpose to allow us time to get everything out to people. The goal is to get everything out to supporters as soon as possible!

Some cards since they were published have been removed from circulation, those were requested to be listed as anonymous to avoid complications. Those cards will also not be included in any card distributions with this project.
