All of the above is why I've never bought one - Too many questions - $$$. To be made
I should probably buy the single with the poster but I'm not even going to try the whole blood card thing !

Hmm, well, I just moved so they're all boxed up. There are more than just Yellow and Black cards though.

Interesting. I was looking for a reference to the thumb card and all I can find is that Grim mentioned it in response to a Ben Blackwell interview. The card in that interview isn't actually a thumb card though, it's just a blood card. and I believe it's a black card, not a white one. The back of the black cards is white. I'm pretty sure that Ben doesn't have a thumb card but I could be wrong.

What's up with the clover as part of this Upholsterers with blood card #31 sold on Ebay?
It was listed framed with the four leaved clover.

I feel very sorry for the person who bought this. Seller wrote in the listing it was blood card #31, but when I asked for a photo of the back, it was the dreaded fake #43. I mentioned this discrepancy to him and he said he noticed that too but it was too late to change it in the listing. $495 wasted on a fake . . .

There is still no confirmation that they are in fact fake. Could just be that Jack ran out of nail polish.

It's not just the nail polish vs. red marker—it's the writing on the back of the card.
