10 Predictions Back to the Future II Trading Cards Make About 2015

The new year is upon us. Yay -- I guess. It's normal for folks to make predictions, resolutions and declare dreams for what the next 365 days hold. It can also be fun. With that in mind, here are ten 2015 predictions you can gleam from the Back to the Future II trading cards that Topps released back in 1989.

Flying cars.

About fricking time.

Hoverboards.

Oddly, I'll feel safer about my kids being on one of these than a skateboard.

Hovercars.

Think of it as the everyman's flying car.

Superhero movies and The Fast and the Furious have nothing on Jaws.

The Jaws franchise has stalled but there's probably a Sharknado or four coming in the months ahead to build to the inevitable Jaws vs. Sharknado in to go up against the new Star Wars.

The '80s are the new '50s at nostalgia diners.

I'm all for MTV jukeboxes, kitschy decor and other decade delights, but let's keep the Hungry Man meals off the menu. And the Styrofoam burger boxes.

Lea Thompson is a timeless beauty.

But we knew that already.

Christopher Nolan's Batmobile likes to hang out during the day.

Sorry, Alfred. We know now that the end of The Dark Knight Rises wasn't a dream. Or someone stole the Batmobile. Either way, good to see Nolan's tumbler.

We like to wear a lot of protective gear.

This could be a sign that we're starting to take the staying safe thing a little too hard. Or we're letting it all hang out on the hoverboards.

1980s-style bikini bottoms are about to come back in style.

Just be thankful that Speedos aren't coming back in fashion too.

The Chicago Cubs win the World Series -- in a five-game sweep!

If Marty's future has any pull, next year is this year for the Chicago Cubs.

But it's going to take some last-minute rule-changing to make the full prediction come true. Currently, the World Series is a best-of-seven affair. According to Back to the Future II, the Cubbies win in a five-game sweep. Does that mean we're going to see the season dragged out even further with a switch to a best-of-nine format?

Other intriguing headlines predict a female president, a further progression in performance enhancers for athletes, kelp chips becoming even more popular and Switzerland emerging as a terror threat. Intriguing is the "Thumb Bandits Strike" headline, which could very much anticipate some sort of texting scam.

So there you have it. 2015 is going to be defined by awesome, happy tears from Cubs fans and questionable fashion choices. Bring it on, flying cars.
