Is a promo Spartacus card featuring Andy Whitfield's image.

I would humbly suggest such a card be made available, sold via GF9 or BGG, with proceeds going to non-Hodgkins Lymphoma research.

I would gladly pay $10 or so for such a card.

Who's with me?

Update:
I've sent an e-mail to the only address I could find on the GF9 web site (customerservice@battlefront.co.nz), and if they received a lot of e-mails of a similar notion, that's probably going to get the ball rolling a lot faster than a post here on BGG.

Second Update:

I received this e-mail back:

John-Paul Brisigotti wrote:
Thank you for your suggestion and you are not alone in asking about cards or box versions with Andy Whitfield on them.

When we raised this with STARZ it was agreed between us that to not use his image was the better option as we did not want people to think we were “using” it for the wrong reasons.

He will be forever known in this role and many fans of the show will find it odd that he won’t get a card or model so it is definitely on my list of things to discuss again with STARZ and feedback from the fans is what will help so thank you for dropping us a line and I hope you enjoy the game.

So, it sounds like a deluge of e-mails for them to present to STARZ is the way to get this to happen!

The GF9 studio is off for a long weekend to recover from Gen Con, but I have made a note of your wonderful suggestion and will pass it along.

It is a great idea overall, but for me, I think I would feel weird to have that card in the deck since so much of the game seems to be about doing horrible things to the other players' gladiators, both inside and outside the arena -- poisoning, decapitating, etc. It would just feel very awkward for a charity card dedicated to his memory. I'd almost rather it be some other component that has is image, likes first-player marker or a Champion token.


*shrug* Maybe it's just me...

Andy Whitfield, the bringer of rain!
I would support that idea.

I remember when I first read of his passing, it was a real shock.

As someone who crossed paths with Andy, I think it's a tremendous idea.

Sadly, I've lost interest in the show w/out Andy Whitfield. He was such a great fit for Spartacus.

I think it's more a matter of e-mailing GF9/Battlefront, so they can present the fan demand to Starz.
