We were missing a few even several years later.
We were missing a few even several years later.

Here's a blast from the past. If you were around a few years ago (exactly three years ago to be clear), you may remember a secret collection of cards that were released through the Whiskey Media online store. It was a magical time. A time of big live live shows that were live, big red phones, and baby shaking. How one would obtain one of these cards was hotly debated at the time. Those who did qualify for a card received them in a direct email from one Dave Snider with the user's name emblazoned across the bottom. The real kicker was that it was entirely up to the user to share them with the rest of the community, so some of them were never seen.

Until now...

Now that it's been a few years, Dave sent me a zip file of all of them. So, here they are in all their glory including the likes of Ryan, Norm, Vinny, Ethan, and the Big Red Phone.

And, yes. Luchadeer's last name is Williams. That's canon.

Oh wow, totally forgot about these! That's awesome. (and yes, I'd totally buy a physical pack of these)

Edit: I used "totally" twice. That actually bugs me. I need a life.

Damn that Vinny card is amazing.

Also.. THE CRUSHER.

Also.. it's fantastic that the card you unlocked was cool baby. Hell of a legacy to leave behind.

I didn't even know these existed, and I was around during that time too. These are awesome.

Beautiful!

Now that this past era has been fully revealed, we need a new line of cards which include Dan "Aioli" Ryckert!

It's weird Drew never got one. Or the ComicVine guys, for that matter.

It's time to bring this back, with a twist: Giant Bomb Top Trumps. Stop buildin' a website, Dave Snider, and make us more cards.

Huh, has it really been three years since then? It's weird seeing these now. Also makes me miss the old offices. Something about them that felt pretty comfy.

Maybe I am misremebering but I honestly don't remember Drew getting as much attention until the CBS buyout. He always was around for the odd flight/racing QL, but I don't recall much else.

If anything I think it's a crime Rorie didn't get one; that mother fucker always killed it on Screened(RIP).

I was pretty pleased to see these pop up on twitter. These were such a weird thing when they first popped up, and they're still weird today. Also, for anyone wondering where Luchadeer's last name came from:

I forgot all about these. I remember really wanting one but just wasn't at a point to be able to grab one.

And now I have them all! :D

I like that the Alex card was unlocked by "thoseposers." It's fitting.

Also, if anyone wondered "I wonder how much it'd cost to get a copy of Babysitting Mama with the Cool Baby doll?", as I did after looking at these, it's actually pretty decently priced on Amazon. Especially if you get a used copy, which I assume comes with the doll.

I miss that basement....

Of course, I am fine with the CBSi transition and all of that - after all, we've seen some amazing stuff come out of that place. With that being said, I miss all the hijinks of the old Unprofessional Fridays with Tested and Comic Vine (even if others didn't like it). Having Will, Norm, Sara, Tony, Dave, and all of the crew around in the random office videos... Hell... We haven't seen someone eat a nearly exploding can of fish in years.

It was a magical time. I'm glad we can remember at least part of it in these cards =)

I'm guessing you're in the US? 'Cause on Amazon UK a new copy is £6.95
