More Cards of The Future (sort of)

Here is the third pack of Buck Rogers trading cards from the classic series. An interesting aspect of that show was its futuristic look at what the architecture of tomorrow would look like. They made extensive use of the then brand new Westin Bonaventure Hotel and Suites, located in downtown LA. Today it is such a familiar site in film and television that we don't think of it as futuristic at all. When Avenue Q played LA a few years back, some members of the company stayed there and compared the inside of the hotel to Cloud City. It's in almost every car commercial as the strip directly in front of it is used for almost every commercial made in LA these days. Still, it's fun to see it in Buck Rogers and to think that its look was what some people who had never seen it envisioned our future. Enjoy this pack of 10 cards and 3 stickers and keep watching for the rest!
