BfRLC Trading Cards Return

We have been getting tons of email asking about the BfRLC Trading Cards. Well, after deeper research, the artist Guy Edwards and I realized we really need to make sure we get card number one right. The trading cards needed to reflect Bigfoot research in a more respectful and honorable way. Although Roger Patterson is probably most well known, we felt that he alone was not reflective of the community or spirit of Bigfoot research. In fact no one alone would be the perfect candidate, but Guy and I felt we picked the best.

Ladies and gentlemen! I present the newest BfRLC Trading Card... Charles Hoy Fort. This man inspired the people who inspired the people of Bigfoot research. Now strictly speaking Charles Hoyt was no Bigfoot Researcher, in fact his contribution is less scientific and more philosophic. He was a collector of unexplained documented phenomena , keeping notes and clippings by the thousands in hundreds and hundreds of Shoe boxes. In his collection he probably had enough fodder to expand X-files like they did with Law and Order and CSI. (X-files:Northwest Starring Epic Gilgamesh does have a ring to it. Chris Carter you out there?!)

Anyway before I get to far off the point. Our first card honors Charles Fort, you may recognize his last name as a prefix for unexplained phenomena: Fortean, as in The Fortean Times. Mr Fort, BfRLC Salute you for your trailblazing ideas, fueled by your curiosity and courage to validate the exploration of those things Science can not yet explain.

  1. My favorite quotes of his are, "The Earth is a farm, we are someone else's property" and, "If there is a universal mind, must it be sane?" Great playing card Epic!

  2. So that's where Fortean came from? Wow I have always wanted to know. How interesting that someone else coined the term.

    I printed out the card today and its and it prints beautiful. You must have it at a high resolution it doesn't pixelate at all.
