Galactic Trading Cards : Visionary Art Oracle 

Last Chance to get this art card deck which functions as an oracle, micro-gallery and collectible set of artist cards.

Thanks to support from conscious creatives around the world, this unique non-commercial art card project has reached its basic goals to print a deck with a box including two lenticular hologram cards. Delvin Solkinson volunteers to create the deck and art is given freely by artists. 

This final stretch goal of $13,333 includes unlocking 20 new cards that will be a free bonus for anyone sponsoring at the $64 Oracle Deck or $88 Complete Package tier.

The final stretch goal will also raise money for a redesign of the deck to take it to the next level by including some visionary designers for the card backs.

Serving as a unique oracle deck of collectible art cards sharing inspiration and wonder, you can utilize the Galactic Trading Cards in the way that best suits your journey: Individual cards may be gifted and traded. Sets of cards can be organized into ever changing ‘micro-galleries’ for displays and altars. Full decks of cards may be used as a visionary oracle.  

Inspired by a vision in the year 2000, the project has produced tens of thousands of cards. Delvin Solkinson volunteers to make this passion project happen and the art is contributed freely by artists. Since Winter Solstice 2012 this epic project has been on hiatus due to a lack of supporting funds. After six years of regermination, this art oracle complex seeks to come back from the beyond. 

Going through 12 complete redesigns by Sijay James of Onbeyond Metamedia and released as individual cards, booster packs and sets, the project has not yet been able to fulfill its dream of becoming a completed oracle card deck.

Stretch Goals :

Risks and challenges

It will take time to design, produce and print properly.
We will address this by setting clear and achievable goals for the timing of our process.

It will cost a bunch of money to do this, we need to reach our goal to move forward. We will be realistic about the cheapest and most simple way to do this as the base goal for the campaign.
