I do have some ideas for booklet type cards, but more than likely they'll be folded cards, rather than the booklet types in Masterworks.

I like your optimism! I'm hoping and pushing for a new set for the very end of this year, maybe early 2016. The aftermarket on Invasion is certainly helping my case. We'll see.

Any new set will without a doubt be driven by new stories and new art, but supplemented with chase cards that capitalize on elements on the original.

There's a legacy and a popularity to the original 1962 cards that still holds with fans young and old, and it is a big draw for collectors. That's all I really meant.

I think so too. I wonder how sought after they'd become, especially if the "old" stuff is what people are most drawn to.

I like the idea of metal more than silk, if we're going with ideas that others have done before. Maybe there's a third printing option, something entirely new. I'll think about it.
