Dark Horse signing cards were giveaways at the Dark Horse booth at San Diego Comic-Con from 1997 to 2001 to promote their comics but there was always a decent line with several people bringing a few things to sign. The artists changed every hour. Some artists not only signed the backs but also added a quick sketch because there was enough blank space for it, the cards being 3 x 4 inches. I've seen very few online so I thought I'd show the ones I received in those years though it appears it was something they did only in 1999 and 2000 (the 2001 cards were smaller and therefore had a smaller signing area with no real room for a sketch).

The first one is on the back of a Ghost card. It was done in pencil so the scan didn't pick up all the detail but it's still good:

The other one I have on a Ghost card is by Art Adams but it appears to be a sketch of Obi-Wan Kenobi.

These are two sketches on the back of the "Ghost Handbook" card (I don't know the artist of the first one but the second one is Scott Benefiel):
