I don't have any different football ones in my collection. On the baseball ones, there exist the additional following: Justin Case; Mike Easter; Sam Quentin and Hugh Mungus. I do believe that there is a promotional counterpart for each regularly issued card out there making it a total of 50 different promo cards.

To update the list above, I found Warren Piece and Monty Zuma.

I also found 3 NEW ones not listed:

Rusty Springs (football)
Kenny Duett (football)
Mo (not the football one, but a BASEBALL card)


So there are at least 44 different ones confirmed. I personally have 37.

Promoking is absolutely correct in his belief that there are 50 promo cards in these two sets. I completed the football set in 2018 and since there are 25 promo cards in that set it's reasonable to assume that there are also 25 in the baseball series. I still lack 5 cards of that set so I now have 45 of the estimated 50 cards. In case anyone has any spares I'm missing the Authenticity Card, Stan Dupp, Harry Pitz, Mo Monet and Hugh Mungus. Yesterday I decided that both sets needed new penny sleeves and 9 pocket pages. In the process I looked more closely at the back of each card. Until then I thought that all of the cards had identical backs with "Promotional" printed on each card. I am now slightly confused as one card in each set has a noticeable difference on it's back. In the football set Kenny Duett also has a small rectangular box on the lower right-hand side of the card with the word "PROTOTYPE". When I checked the baseball set every card had identical backs except one. My Sam Quentin has the same little box with the same word in it. I would really like to know if anyone else has the same two cards with that word or even more importantly do you have either of these two cards without Prototype on their backs. Would also like to know if anyone has some other card in either set that has the extra word on its back.

I have developed a theory about these 2 sets and why they are so hard to complete. I went back to my doubles and surprisingly I have several spare cards for these sets- but of those, I found 3 and 4 copies each of Andy Skorz and Ben Dover and 2 copies of many other cards while none of others. I now believe that several cards in each set were short printed and others over-printed in order to sow the "collector fever" mentality and drum up publicity and business for the manufacturer. Given that so many people on this board have been attempting to finish their sets for decades, and none (other than one hardy soul)who has completed half, have been able to do so, the print run manipulation theory is the only sensible and viable explanation given the evidence adduced on these fascinating little sets.
I'm still missing the Football Prototype card mentioned by Kyfhomp plus a couple of others and 1 Baseball card . The good news is that I can confirm that the Sam Quentin card has the word PROTOTYPE factory inscribed on the back. This set is almost as interesting as the Biosphere!
