Rejection Letter Trading Cards

I'm not exactly sure I understand the formula over at Rejection Letter Trading Cards (the so-called "ultimate site for all your agent & editor rejection letter trading cards!"), but there is something amusing about the idea. As you can see above, there is a positive spin on each agent trading card with links to their accounts on twitter/myspace/facebook, as well as agency websites.  I gather the author only creates a trading card after getting rejected by the featured agent, but I'm not sure if that's exactly it.  Anyway, the blogger is soliciting ideas for how he can better devise his points system; you can write to jimsissy at yahoo dot com.   So far, there is a card for Rachelle Gardener, Jenny Rappaport, Diedre Knight, and two folks at Firebrand Agency.  If anyone can decipher what's going on and how it works, please post a comment to explain.

Hmm, I'm not sure it will catch on like "Magic: The Gathering" did ...

Do you play a game with the cards like Pokemon? The agents morph into super-agents, and then do battle over who gets to represent you.

(When you have kids, you'll still remember toy fads long after your kids have forgotten.)

They appear to be all about genre fiction and not so much about literary fiction, maybe?

Something about wanting stuff that doesn't contradict a "Christian worldview"? And looking for something called romance? And fantasy? I'm on my knees, dude, heart racing, hunkster alien on donkey approaching...
