Wrappers Delight (Series1 "Sports" Review)

A short while ago I was lucky enough to receive a beautiful promo copy of these cards to review and to say I was impressed would be a massive understatement. The sets come housed in a cassette case and are hand stamped, embossed, coloured, written and have a numbered inlay - each series is extremely limited to only 100 sets.

Basically, for those who don't know - Wrappers Delight (Series 1) is a trading card set of rappers doing sports created from a team of artists that include official Garbage pail kids artists, tattoo artists, hip hop artists and other freelance creatives, included in the aforementioned list are UKHH royalty, Junior Disprol and Ben81 from IMS.

These are a great little collectors piece for not only Hip Hop fans but for general collectors as well - the designs are superbly done and you can feel that a lot of time, care and passion has gone into these with brilliant attention to detail and the puns used are simply hilarious. The sets have a really professional look and feel and are a great platform to showcase the artists involved, you can really tell that the sets are made by fans, for fans. The sets would look dope in a display frame in your home or studio making them a really smart gift for the Hip Hop head in your life.

You can grab Series 1 (Sports) or Series 2 (Horror) HERE and keep a close eye out for Series 3 which is coming REAL soon!

These are seriously dope, big shout out to Slippz for the Promo copy, much appreciate bro.
