I do not personally have this one, but apparently it exists. Produced in the early 2010s when Cult Stuff, the UK company, made so many different cards.

It is for War of the Worlds. The card specifically advertises the Jeff Wayne musical version, and the art on the promo card is the same as the soundtrack for it. I believe this is what it looks like.

The back of the card is P1 and it says "Limited Test Card."

Anyone have one ?

I thought I'd seen just about all Cult Stuff promos but that's a new one to me as well.

Yes, I have never seen or heard of this card, either. I certainly do not have one.

A collector found one at a UK show many years ago. He confirmed that it depicts the same image as the CD soundtrack, seen in the link above.

Can't help feeling we might be on to something here. I can find nobody else who has this card. Eek

Thanks for putting the pictures up. I am now really edging towards the belief that this is the only copy as i can get no confirmation that anyone has one or has even seen one.

Was this set ever released? I think I would have jumped on it if I had seen or heard of it before now. Major fan of this version of the story.

This was never released. They had a couple more traditional WotW sets that they released 8 or 9 years ago.

From what I can make out the WotW Musical stage show is a more recent event so this must be a card produced and released long after Cult Stuff ceased. If you look at their website via the link provided on the NSU home page you will see an entry dated 5th November 2020 posted by JJ showing images of "Giant Insects Attack".

regards

John

John the stage show has been going for a very long time, i have the dvd of it and that is 15 years old and i can confirm that this card was produced very much whilst Cult Stuff were in operation. The plan was to have this set made but for various reasons that i am not privvy to the deal fell through and the set was never done.

Yeah, I saw a video with Liam Neeson in the lead role and that was at least the second recast for the production. I believe the show originally used Richard Burton's narrative.

Still waiting for a decent stateside tour!!

Now that it seems to be the case that this could well be the only copy of this card would it be of any use to get it graded? If it came out as a 5 or a 10 it would still be the only one so i would have thought the grading was irrelevant.

If you KNOW the grade will be 8 or better and ONLY if you intend to put it up for sale right now and ONLY if you know that there is a group of people who are interested in owning it, then it might get you more in a slab. You have to know who the potential bidders will be, as it is possible that grading might actually turn someone off it, but for a singularity I wouldn't think so.

The key is that you are grading it to make more money in the sale. Otherwise, if you are keeping it, it will only cost you more money for bragging rights for something you already have.
