Cryptozoic Entertainment released their DC Comics Justice League trading card set months ago, and somehow I've failed to mention it here despite the fact that there is a Booster Gold card.
Maybe I've failed to mention it because it features Booster's New 52 costume. But the artwork by Alejandro Germánico Benit is too good to ignore. It looks great, especially when the cards are assembled into the nine-slice collages, like this one of the short-lived New 52 era Justice League International.
Booster Gold is card #61 in the base set of 63, which means you have pretty good odds of getting one if you buy a box at your Local Comic Shop or wherever fine trading cards are sold.
(I owe a thanks to dcinthe80s.com, whose recent review of Batman trading cards reminded me to post this.)

So here's how this comic book character blogging thing works:
Earlier this week, I paid a visit to The Irredeemable Shag's FirestormFan.com, which just happened to be running a post on the "Great Heroes" DC trading cards from 1987. They were trading cards printed on backing boards included with 3-pack comic books in the late 1980s. I'd never heard of these before. Could there be a Booster Gold?
For more information, I followed Shag's link to CosmicTeams.com, where, thanks to the assistance of Michael Kooiman, I can now show you this, the first Booster Gold trading card, copyright 1989:
The card was just one of 8 on its original board. You can see a picture of the whole board at Kooiman's slideshow of the entire set at ComicTeams.com.
This card has been added to the Boosterrific.com archive of Other Media appearances. But while Michael was giving me the pic for the card above, he graciously forwarded a great scan of the one and only Booster Gold pog from SkyBox in 1993!
My thanks to Michael (and Shag!) for helping make Boosterrific.com more complete than ever.

The clock is ticking. Do you have a gift for that special someone yet? How about an artifact from a time gone by, a nostalgic reminder of when comic book collecting was mainstream and everyone believed that their comic collection would pay their way through college. You know, 1991.
Even in 1991, Booster Gold was among Earth's Mightiest Heroes. Seller petspawn is selling this time capsule-in-a-trading card this week on eBay.com. As I type this, bidding is up to $0.99. That's cheaper than the cover price of comics even then!
Whether you're looking for a stocking stuffer or just something to stick between the spokes on your bicycle wheels, go for the Gold!
