I'm In Heaven! A South Park "Good Times With Weapons" 4-Card Set!

A long time ago Corky at Pack War posted about South Park cards he picked up and I instantly knew I had to track down the 4-card set for myself. It took a long time as I didn't want to spend a lot on what was basically a novelty of my all-time favorite show but patience eventually paid off.


A seller had them listed but they continually sat there unsold. He kept lowering the price and once they were re-listed and sitting there for about 3 bucks a pop I couldn't resist any longer. They immortalize one of the greatest South Park episodes ever: Good Times With Weapons. One side features the boys as they are (below) while the reverse (above) shows each kid's anime character complete with weapon of choice.


A small part of me wants to have these slabbed just for the hell of it. Maybe when I'm rich and famous or I finally marry Kate Upton, whichever comes first.


The episode also brought us one of the greatest South Park songs ever: Let's Fighting Love. Look up the lyrics. Pure gold.

    1. Sweet indeed Fuji. And you've gotta get back in the swing of things! Matt and Trey still pump out good stuff.
