Big Thanks To Matt Over At Heartbreaking Cards of Staggering Genius

I saw a really cool card several months ago featuring the lead singer of one of my favorite bands, Thom Yorke of Radiohead, and I wrote a post asking if any of my fellow bloggers knew anything about the card. Turns out, the card was made by Matt over at Heartbreaking Cards of Staggering Genius. I contacted Matt and he was kind enough to make me not one, but two of the coolest cards I've seen in a long time. In fact, I've been doing a countdown of my favorite cards in my PC over the last few weeks. I put the countdown list together and made a rule that I would not add any new cards or change the list until I got through the countdown. I will do a follow up post when the countdown is done on the new cards in my collection that would have made the list (there are only two left), and you can be sure that these two little gems will be in there.

The designs are certainly familiar, but it's the images and colors that Matt used that make these cards great. What's also cool is that Matt himself signed the backs and issued them as 1 of 1's.

If you get a chance, I know many of you already have, checkout Matt's blogs: Heartbreaking Cards of Staggering Genius and Heartbreaking Originals. Heartbreaking Originals is a blog featuring some of Matt's card design work. I want to say a special thanks to Matt for these really cool looking cards. Matt's slogan is, "Accentuating the positive and eliminating the negative about this hobby". He not only preaches it, he practices that. Thanks again Matt, I will be sending some cards your way soon. Happy collecting and… "Enjoy Every Bounce of the Ball".


  1. Love love love Radiohead. That is one cool card!

  2. Thanks DB. I'm pretty excited about these two.

  3. Karma Police is one of my favorite songs ever. And I'm a country boy.

    Well done.

  4. Def G. I'm an "Anyone Can Play Guitar" fan myself. Actually, Im like Michael Bolton on Office Space, "I celebrate their whole catalog".

  5. Radiohead rules! Those are some sweet customs... so when are you posting #2? The suspense is killing me!
