Artist creates vintage trading card wrappers for modern movies

Artist Zack Wallenfang has created a series of trading card wrappers reminiscent of the classic wax wrappers Topps made during the 1970s and 1980s, only with modern films, television shows, and pop culture subjects instead of films from the era.

His subject matter is pretty varied.
