"Parks and Recreation" Trading Cards Exist and Now I Need to Find Them

Posted By on Tue, Jul 30, 2013 at 11:59 AM

The timing of TV these days is a little weird. For some reason, it seems like a year or so since the Parks and Recreation season 5 finale (it was actually May 2) and season 6 isn't scheduled to start until September 26, so I've made adjustments to adapt to a summer without the show. Mad Men was still on until late June, there was Arrested Development and Orange Is the New Black on Netflix, plus the last season of Burn Notice. Busy times on the Gibson television, for sure.

Absence, even in the realm of episodic television, still makes the heart grow fonder eventually, and stumbling across the announcement of the Parks and Recreation trading card set. This is apparently an actual thing happening in the "Low- to Mid-End Entertainment Card" market, with parks of five cards providing pictures of the cast, images from the show and, if you're lucky, actual autographs from Rob Lowe, Amy Poehler, Nick Offerman and others. There is also foil involved, although I can't say I understand how that applies. 

I could just buy the whole box of cards, I guess, but I'd rather bask in the thrill of the luck of the draw, so my quest to collect all of these glossy pieces of printed paper that I've wanted forever even though I just heard about them BEGINS NOW.
