Geek a Week Trading Cards [Pics]

Say you’re into trading cards but you’d like something a bit more realistic to work with. Or, you’re a sexy geek and you’d like to know more about real-life sexy geeks. Great! Len Peralta’s Geek a Week project is for you. The idea is simple: each week, Peralta releases a trading card design for a successful geek from TV, the internets, literature, tech… pretty much any arena in which you’d find geeks succeeding.

Though Peralta has surpassed the initial “52 geeks, 52 weeks” challenge, he’s still going. The latest installment is Jamie Hyneman, who joins his Mythbusters friends Adam Savage, Grant Imahara and Kari Byron, who all have cards as well. Here are some of our faves from the set.
