Philly Show Promo Question

Does anyone recall these Philly show cards ? I don't know what they were called, that is, whether the set had a particular name. Here is what I remember:

1) They were given out at one of the Philly show dinners within the past 5 years--pre COVID

2) There may have been about 10 cards in the set

3) I think only 3 to 5 of each card were made, hence they were quite rare

4) The cards celebrated various non-sports artists, with each card dedicated to one artist

5) Each dinner attendee received 1 card only, so making a set was impossible. I think they were left on their chair or table.

6) I personally saw only 2 of these surface on ebay right after the show, and never again.

I am stumped. What were these cards called ? Maybe Harris or someone else can help ?

Those sound familiar. I think that someone posted on these cards awhile back, but I can't find the info...

Hi David,

This thread mentions a very limited card being given away at the dinner that year. It might be one of the cards you're asking about.

This talk of Philly promos reminds me that I'm still missing the rare(?) David Rosciszewski card. O wonder whatever happened to that guy.

Regarding the cards I asked about above, I think they may have been metal cards done by Faerie Metal. I will ask Jacob.

Jess, you don't have my card ? I will send you one. I think Harris did that one in 2003. However, the photo was taken in 95, so I look much different now.

OK, mystery solved (partially)

There were 8 cards in the set, numbered PSD-01 to 08 and they say "Limited Edition"

The backs say "Celebrating Wacky Packages & Garbage Pail Kids and the Lives of Jay Lynch and Frank Reighter"

They also say Philly Non Sports Card Show, Allentown, PA, April 22, 2017

Slightly off on a tangent for which I apologise. I am still missing the four promos for that Philly show. the cards being #94 through to #97, I am also missing the two promos from the following Philly show held October 21/22 #98 - #99. Does any one have any spares please?

regards

John

On a related note, I did not realize that there was a METAL version of # 96, the Jay Lynch card. Not sure that I have that one.

Thanks, David. I didn't think you'd have an extra after all these years.
