Standard sized for now. I haven't gone through the oversized stuff yet. Some neat items to share.

Well, I was GOING to post them. I've uploaded to OneDrive and can't seem to figure out how to put up anything other than a link.

Why is posting images on this forum so fricking unfriendly?

Todd (and everyone else) -- posting images from OneDrive.

The Plummer card here is hosted at OneDrive.

Upload a .jpg file to OneDrive.
Open the image at OneDrive.
At the top should be a link to "</> Embed".

Click it, that opens a window and in the window is a box with a long URL. This image will be too large, so select "Medium (660px)" in the Image Size drop-down box.

Put your cursor in the URL box, click anywhere on the URL to select the entire URL, and "CTRL-C" to copy the URL.

Once you've copied the URL to your clipboard, come back to Card Talk and start the post you want to embed the picture in. When you get to the place you want to open the picture, click the small picture icon to the right of the envelope at the top of the post composing window. That opens a dialogue with the title "Image URL". Past the URL into the box of that dialogue. This should link to your image at OneDrive.






Other free and easy places to host images for later linking are Twitter (open a dummy account just to host pictures) and a wordpress blog. In both of those cases, once you get the picture online, left-click on it and "save Image URL", then paste it over here at Card Talk.

Some of those might not be giveaways. Like the last one. My guess is it was a pack that was purchased at SDCC. But maybe not. Cool cards anyhow.

Wow, Todd, there's some weird stuff in there. I see a Felix promo that promotes his first set (woman in coat). That (and the other two) is hard to find now because it was printed in a lower quantity than the ones for later sets. I see a Kama Sutra card by Victoria Gallery, I think. You don't see that one often. I've never seen the Trains card before.

What are the ones in the fifth group with the banners in the lower right corner?

I see a couple of Zuzupetal Press promos that are tough to find now if you're looking for those.

The two female bodybuilder cards are from a set called BODY-BUILDER TRADING CARDS from 1993.

I don't think I've seen those Horror Stories cards before and assume those are the unembossed chase cards also sent to dealers. I picked up an oddball cello-pack of 21st Century Archives prototypes last year and I thought I might get at least one of those but got mostly National Lampoon prototypes, a Petty Girl, a Weird Tales, and one of the common Horror Stories prototypes.

Iron Cupcakes?

We talked about the set the first card (unmarked prototype with "1992" in the upper left corner instead of "1993" on the base card of the set) represents in this thread:

"Engineering In the Classroom", no year (but has a website, so it's newer than the mid 90s); Lockheed Martin is on the backs.

I have those noted as "Pro Body Builders".

In the 7th group, there's a card showing art of three women and it says "Iron Cupcakes" at the top. It reminds me of one of those "Spoof Comics" cards.

I remember getting those 2 Poe promos at SDCC in the late 90's.

I didn't know there was a promo for Ackermonster's Cardiac Kids or is that a card from the set?
