Geocaching History Series II

I would like to create another set of Geocaching History Series Trading Cards to complement the first series: Geocaching History Series I. The first series consisted of 20 cards (see all cards below).

Example:

Dave Ulmer finds a GeoStash

The second series will consist of the following 10 cards:

Geocaching Block Party 

Geolympix

Geocoinfest

Cachapolooza

Coinapalooza

Midwest Geobash

Worldwide Flash Mob

International Earth Cache Day

International Earth Cache Mega Event

The Podcacher Podcast

Example Art proof for Geocoinfest

Why $1500.00 Funding goal?

Each card cost slighly over 100.00 to print and ship. A total of 10 cards is $1000.00+ dollars. Then there is a cost associated with each illustration (10 illustrations at ~ $30.00+ each) and the cost of shipping and handling for shipping the rewards to each contributor. That doesn't even take into account the 5% fee Kickstarter charges, and the 5% fee Amazon charges for accepting the payments.

STRETCH GOALS  - for each additional $200.00 funded, I will create an additional card (at no additional cost to you). Here are some ideas for additional cards (I am open to suggestions).

1st Virtual Cache

1st Webcam

1st Multi-Cache

1st Mystery (Puzzle) Cache

1st Locationless (Reverse) Cache

1st Letterbox Hybrid

1st Pathtag

1st Geocaching Trading Card

1st Geocaching Magazine

This is the first Kickstarter Project that will run for 30 days. In the past all my projects ran for 60 days (frankly, it just seemed to long). Its gonna be all up to you to pass this along to all your geocaching friends. This will be the last chance to get the cards from the original series. Please post this on your personal Facebook pages, and geocaching group pages and forums. Also, please Tweet it, Facebook it, Reddit, Youtube it, Google + it, and pin it (pinterest).

This is my third Geocaching Trading Card project. Two projects in the past have been very successful. I work closely with a graphic artist and custom trading card shop to produce high quality cards. Both of my previous project rewards were delivered on time!
