Playing Cards with Sci-Fi Art

Olav from Norway pointed me to these interesting playing cards with sci-fi art. These cards were published in the early 1980s by Waddingtons (the set contained 32 cards). He trying to track down the artists who made the artwork and it was wondering if you know who painted them (except the photos and the ones from star wars). Unfortunately, I can't answer that question. Any suggestions?

Below are a few playing cards with sci-fi art for example. To see full set check out this page.

Great stuff! IS that second one Angus McKie. The ship is his design, of course. I recognize it as "The Interstellar Queen" from the Cowley books. But it almost looks like an inferior copy.

And I love the cool variation on the Cylon Raider.

They're by different artists, but 'Station 2001' is by Rick Guidice. Maybe others too. Dave Hardy http://www.astroart.org
