Today's Awards-Season Trading Card Star: Christian Bale

It's time once again to return to Movieline's recently undertaken mission to honor this year's acting and directing nominees with a tribute that will surely outlive any trophy they could ever hope to receive: one of our daily inaugural Awards-Season Trading Cards. Today, let's give it up for Best Supporting Actor nominee Christian Bale!

  • The Winchester says:

    I like how you have the meatier Bale in the circle below. It's like having both the young and old Elvis stamps.

  • S.T. VanAirsdale says:

    Thanks! Yeah, that's what was great about '83 Topps: the action shot and the pose, laid out just so. It wasn't the first card to do that, but the circular inset is really kind of perfect for showcasing all these intense artists in more relaxed, even fun environments.

  • Strawberry Pain says:

    Holy Shiite, Sadam. You know what I just recalled? I think I have 1983 Topps cards from The Return of the Jedi. These are better, though, 'cause there's no crappy gum I have to chew to get 'em.
