At least one member of Styleforum is a licensing guru. I'm talking to him anyway, and will definitely bring this up. I have someone in mind for graphics, but I'll need graphics volunteers. Those who volunteer their time will get a free deck. I've already started looking at prices for the decks.
Would someone please make a set of Pitti trading cards? You can do a different set every year and have stats on the back. Maybe some all star cards like, for example, Nick Wooster in different poses. Some duet cards where a favorite shopkeeper has a solo card but also shows up standing next to a blogger. If you give Compton a few packs and put his picture in them, you can probably get a nice promotional writeup. I think this is a decent real business. Surely every blogger will buy a few packs. Especially if they think they might be in the pack.
I would buy a set. The Armoury might buy a few hundred to give out to customers or use as scotch coasters.
Easiest way would be to use Synth's "black bar" to hide identities, which would be hilarious on it's own. Otherwise you would need to get model releases from anyone depicted or cut them in on the action. Who knows where it could lead; putting the images on ties would be hilariously bad but good. Bets could be taken on how long it would take for one of the subjects to show up wearing "his" tie!
