Does anyone else remember these, the 3 promo sets put out by Upper Deck in 1993-1994 for Valiant Comics ? I have one of each card (no extras) that I picked up piece by piece, mostly from other promo collectors, about 10 years ago. It cost me alot to complete the sets. As I long ago found them all, I have not searched on ebay or anywhere else for them over the last decade.

Has anyone else pursued them ? How hard are they to find now ?

In my experience, at least 10 years ago, the 36 1994 Thank You's were the easiest to find (sold for $3-4 each) as they came in Triton magaine. The 1993 San Diegos were the next "easiest" to find, but completing a set was still tough. However, the 1993 Thank You's were IMPOSSIBLE to find, for reasons unknown. Every now and then you'd find a single card, but not often, and a set was very rare.

They are hard to find. Never chased after them, but have about half of whats listed in PCE.

I was at the show and got many of them. They were not numbered so was not sure how many there were. I have extras and would trade for ones I don't have.

I saw a lot of 19 of the 36 cards from the 1994 set sell recently for $ 72

All 3 sets seem to be hard to find now, much more so than 15-20 years ago

The two 1993 sets in particular are VERY tough now
