January Jurassic Park Collection - Steven Ray Morris

Like most of us I've been obsessed with Jurassic Park ever since I saw it in theaters over twenty years ago. As a kid I wanted everything, playing with the toys, videogames and even the trading cards. Flash forward to present day (two JP-related birthday parties in my twenties, a casiopop ode to the year 1993, and numerous Alan Grant cosplay shenanigans later), and I found myself wanting to start collecting Jurassic Park-related merch again. 

A few years prior I found unopened boxes of the Series 1 and Series 2 Jurassic Park Topps trading cards at a flea market. Once I was sitting there opening packs I knew that these were my jam. The imagery is classic Jurassic Park, but there are a lot of fun idiosyncrasies to their designs (due to having to make them before the designers saw the final film or script) that made me want to explore them in depth. 

So this is when JPTopps was born. I'm going through every card in Series 1 and 2 first and then also talking about The Lost World Topps trading cards and even the maligned, but still fun Jurassic Park III Inkworks trading cards. I recently acquired the holy grail of JP trading cards and that's an Australian-only run of Jurassic Park trading cards made by Dynamic Forces. Mostly I'm just having a lot of fun sharing my love of Jurassic Park cards with everyone, learning more about the original film's production, and getting pumped for Jurassic World. It's never been a better time being a Jurassic Park fan.
