Tompkins Square releases trading cards: Obscure Giants Of Acoustic Guitar

Stocking fillers for finger pickers: Tompkins Square starts a sideline in trading cards later this month with a set on Obscure Giants [an oxymoron?] Of Acoustic Guitar. The set of 37 cards is out on 23 November (that's Black Friday if you're in the States), with illustrations by Shana Cleveland.  

Tompkins Square aren't the first to print up a set of trading cards: Numero Group also sell a set of 110 hand numbered cards of Numero No Hitters
