Artist Chet Phillips envisions what baseball might be like if the players were all monsters from the worlds of Godzilla and Ultraman. The Demon Monster League is comprised of 4 teams with 9 players represented for each: Tokyo Terrors, Matsumoto Mutants, Fuji Fiends and Kyoto Kaijus. This parody mashup of Japanese monster and baseball fun is represented as a collection of baseball trading cards, an 18″ x 24″ poster and a selection of t-shirt designs.
Each of the Kaiju Baseball Cards measures approx. 2″ x 3.75″ with the character’s portrait, name, team name, number, and field position in Japanese on the front side. The backs pay tribute to the famed Menko card style with fighting numbers and rock, paper and scissor symbols that allow for playing a version of the card game War.
You can pick up a set of the cards here, and check out some of the designs below.
