Science Fiction Historical Trading Cards

For nearly 100 years, science fiction—affectionally called "speculative fiction" by master story-tellers like Robert Heinlein and Ray Bradbury—has inspired the world with a sense of wonder along with the expectation that the "improbable" will someday become reality. From the timeless works of the 19th Century (20,000 Leagues Under the Sea [1869] and The War of the Worlds [1898]), to today's modern cinematic marvels of the silver screen (Avatar [2009] and Guardians of the Galaxy [2014]), science fiction has been a prominent feature of our global culture. It is an understatement to say that Sci-fi  has been the source of limitless entertainment for the entire world. In recognition of the cultural importance of the science fiction genre, the Science Fiction Historical Trading Card Set has been created to commemorate the history of the global science fiction industry, honoring the literature, the authors, the films, the culture, and the historic milestones.
