Its time to go to the movies folks. Fasten your seat belts because this is 1997 Topps Screenplays.
Unlike other lenticular based products that only show a handful of frames, cards found in 1997 Topps Screenplays display 24 frames of action. You can thank Kodak’s Kodamotion technology for that. The base set consists of only 20 cards, plus you have 6 inserts too. Sealed hobby boxes provide you with 21 packs. You get the entire base set plus one insert. Inside each pack you will find one tin with a full color picture of a player on it. The lenticular card inside the tin will be of whoever is on the cover. Topps got a little creative and made the tins in the shape of a movie reel.
Packs at the time cost around $9.99. Screenplays didn’t make it past this one issue, and cards today can easily be picked up for very little.
Ya’ know what would make for a real ugly card? How about a foil sticker autograph on a lenticular card. I’m surprised is hasn’t been done.
