1991 Topps Terminator 2 Stickers
Have I ever mentioned that I have never seen any of the "Terminator" movies that I can recall? I'm sure I have said that. Ah, well, one does not have to have seen the movie to know the characters at least in passing, right?
What I find most humorous is the font used on the card...
The conversation probably went something like this:
Designer: "Bossman, it's 1991. No one knows what Macs are, right?"
Bossman: "Of course people know what a Mac is, why?"
Designer: "Are you sure?"
Bossman: "Well, okay, most people are about to get jiggy with their Pentiums, and I think Rick still has his Amiga somewhere, but we use Macs around here, dadgummit!"
Designer: "Well, I'm thinking we can forego any cool fonts and just use the default Mac System font on these cards."
Bossman: "You mean, write goofy captions without changing the default font!? That's BRILLIANT!"
Designer: "So, can I have a raise?"
Bossman: "What do think this is, the 80's?"
Designer: "I wonder if we should make some kind of commemorative baseball card for this year?"
Bossman: "Yeah, like '40 Years of Collecting' or something. Work on that and get back to me..."
