Post Chain of Command #23: NASA's final Apollo mission
Welcome to Fill in the Blank Season 2: Chain of Command!

Each week whomever is willing and able will post the collector’s information for one of the cards in the set’s cardlist. Contestants are free to create whatever card they see fit for that slot in the cardlist, keeping in mind the surrounding cards. As the contest progresses, the cardlist will become more and more defined, guiding the contests’ choices.

The theme of our set is Chain of Command. Not every card has to fit the theme, of course, but it’s something to keep in mind when voting. Speaking of voting, as per normal each contestant will vote for one of the previous week’s entries (with the exception that the contest runner will vote ONLY in the case of a tie).

This week’s winner is… GooeyChewie
