Signed and dated 2009 by Mike Mandel on verso of his own card. 134 photo-offset lithographic reproductions of photographic portraits printed on individual "trading cards," with an additional card including a complete checklist of participating photographers. Photographs by Mike Mandel. Texts, statistics and quotes by the respective artists printed on verso (e.g., Ed Ruscha: "Everything you've ever wanted is right in your own backyard;" Bobby Heinecken: ".Critics often misspell his last name, hence he is often mistaken for the European beer player.").Each card 3-1/2 x 2-1/2 inches.

The resulting cards were, and still are, traded by those in the field. Out of print.
