Rockcards (1990) Brockum

PCE2008 lists the 20-card set (19 with a holofoil stamp and a 1990 copyright on the back plus a Megadeath card with a black back but without the stamp nor a date) that was plastic-wrapped with the "Promotional Not for Sale" sticker on the pack and the 20 cards that Todd had seen with the "Anaheim 1991" sticker on them. He didn't really consider the latter group as promos since they were apparently regular cards from the set (1991 copyright on the back) with just a little sticker on them. However, Jeff Allender notes that among those stickered are some cards with the 1990 copyright. I haven't seen those and wonder if they are the holofoil-stamped promos or if they are a third group of cards outside of the regular set.

I have seen online sellers note that the 20-card promo set includes an Axl Rose and Steven Tyler card that are not in the regular set. Neither the Rose nor any of the Aerosmith cards (Tyler, Joe Perry, Tom Hamilton, Brad Whitford, and Joey Kramer, plus an Aerosmith group card) in that set are in the regular set.

Years ago, I bought a plastic-wrapped Rockcards pack offered as a promo pack though it didn't have the "Promotional Not for Sale" sticker on it. It didn't have the Axl Card on top either so I thought I might have messed up and bought some odd pack of regular cards that was also given out as a promo (like "Yo! MTV Raps or SuperStars MusiCards). However, it does have the Tom Hamilton card on top so I'm certain it's just that original promo set with the cards out of order. The black-backed card is on the bottom.

Anyway, I was wondering if anyone here has any 1990 cards with the "Anaheim 1991" sticker on it and if they bear the holofoil stamp. Anyone with a list of them?

Jess

I noticed that an Axl Rose #1 card from the 20-card promo set just sold for something less than $30. Sometimes, you can still find the set for $20-30 but this is at least the second time I've seen a single card from the set sell for around $15-25. I saw a Steven Tyler promo go for that last year or the year before. I guess it's like with the autograph card collectors, some people want just particular cards from the set and will pay up for them.

I've seen sellers try to get a lot more than $30 but I haven't seen an actual sale out there.

I just saw that a Steven Tyler promo card sold for $49.99. That is the most I've seen a single from the promo set go for.

If you can be patient, you will find the whole set for sale for about $15-20. It seems like a set sells for that once or twice every year.

Here's a bit of unconfirmed promo card history I recently found on the web:
"The story behind this card is famous in the rock card community: these promos were sent out by Brockum in 1991 to promote a new line of rock n roll cards. For reasons unknown, Axl Rose (a la Honus Wagner) did not want his card to be in the set. When the official cards actually came out, this Axl Rose Rookie Card was NOT included. And so it goes, only the promo variants survive."

An Axl Rose promo recently sold on Ebay for around $2,000 PSA 10.

Wow, I did see an ungraded Axl Rose card sell for $82 last month and I've seen several packs sell recently for around $200 with even a $600 sale. I don't see any cheap packs anymore.
