2005 NECA Napoleon Dynamite Flippin' Sweet Trading Cards

Ask anyone what their Top 5 cult classics are and this film is likely going to be in the running.  Next to Clerks, The Big Lebowski, Reservoir Dogs, and Office Space...this movie is right there for me.  Lots of classic one liners and some great writing.  13 years ago, NECA (National Entertainment Collectibles Association, a manufacturer of entertainment merchandise) printed this set to try and capitalize on the Napoleon Dynamite movie.  There is a good discussion on The Trading Card Database with this set as it wasn't printed with numbers on the cards so checklisting it proved to be challenging.  There are 50 cards in the set and each pack contains 6 cards.  The cards depict a scene from the movie on the front and the backs showcase a one liner from the movie against a subdued movie scene.  Grab a bottle of Gatorade and some is time to Vote for Pedro!

I'm already chuckling thinking about what cards lie within.

Nice car!

Taming the Honeymoon Stallion!

Good ol' Kip.  And Napoleon showing off his mad skills.  Appears to be an UER here. (wisom not wisdom)

He needs his chapstick!

Killer Dance Moves!

Vote for Pedro.

Well there you have it.  I hope your weekend is going well!

No numbers on the back? I have an unopened box of this stuff waiting for me to bust. Not sure if I wanna deal with the hassle of figuring out which card is first, second, etc. But... I love the movie too much. I'm sure I'll bust the box sooner or later.

Trading Card Database has it documented well. Bust it open! Such a classic movie.
