Dawn, Transformers and 2 for American Horror Story. Each card says "Red Robin" on the back. The 2 American Horror Story promos that were posted as "Mystery" are the ones that were given out at Red Robin.

I did find that the many different promos at many different tables did encourage me to walk around more. I visited tables that I may not have, and talked to dealers/manufacturer's that I usually wouldn't because I don't usually have any particular interest in buying from them.

I figure though since I'm there, and because hcbrewer's daughter is just sooo cute I couldn't resist bringing him promos as he had requested. As a result I took the task of promo hunting much more seriously this show - though I'm wondering how many dealer's who I specifically had to request a second promo from were thinking I was making the story up :P

I think I did alright for the most part, the one glaring ommission of the treasure hunt was the 4 Red Robin cards. After getting in at 4am the night before I was just done after a full day at the show and a pretty good dinner. Sorry Chris!

I have a few questions I'm hoping someone can help me with, so I can pass on accurate intel to hcbrewer.

#24 on the checklist says P1 (Civil War Chronicles). I didn't get any P1's, I got P-1A & P-1C instead. In retrospect I think someone said I should go get another from the artist (P-1B?) but never did make it there. Is there a P1 as well, or just the P-1A/B/C?

#35 unnumbered Adventures of Mac and Trouble was a random admission promo, I ended up with 0 despite 4 admissions (2 for me, 2 for the wife - 1 each day for each of us). Just luck of the draw I guess?

#41 Jack's Sketch card Series P21 was also a random admission promo. Again I ended up with 0 despite 4 admissions - just bad luck?

Also, not on the list I acquired a transformers P3 (Sunday only?) at the Breygent Table, and a transformers 'NSU' from Roxanne's table as I recall. Then of course the transformers Tilted Kilt promo at the cardtalk meeting/breakfast as I didn't make it to the tilted kilt.

I also acquired the following at the show, in no particular order:

Chicago Non-Sport Card Expo - P5
Chicago Non-Sport Card Expo - P6
Sidekick Lab Femme Fatale - Mystyria - 6
Toy Lords Of Chinatown (Sidekick)
Cult Stuff:
H.G. Wells The War Of The Worlds - P4
The Adventures Of Sherlock Holmes - P1
The Adventures Of Sherlock Holmes - P2
Mini/Tobacco Size - LJP1

Did anyone else end up with other promos not on Bill's promo card checklist?

The Civil Way P1-C promo was erroneously listed as P1. No P1 has been reported to exist. Did I miss an announcement suggesting that the P1-A and P1-B would be available at the show? I got my A from a friend and my B late on Sunday when someone finally mentioned that they got one from "an artist".

I don't think the P1-a and PA-b were "officially announced". Over on Facebook Cult Stuff (maybe Liza) mentioned that artist Dave Sharpe would have P1-B. I knew they were sending over promos for me but until I arrived at the show on Friday I didn't know I had the P1-A. I did run out of the P1-a promo early on Sunday morning.

I was one of the lucky dealers selected by Tom at Breygent to hand out one of the American Horror Story promos at the show.

I had the Promo 2 card of Dylan McDermott.

I have about 20-25 cards left from the batch that was given to me and am offering them to those who couldn't make the show or missed my table.

All I ask is that it is one per person and that you send a SASE.

E-mail me at cubby5454@aol.com and I will forward my mailing address.

Thanks,
Mike.

All the American Horror Story promos I had are now gone. Sorry.

Thanks to Tom and Breygent for going above and beyond with the promos.

Mike.

Saw the Brygent Transformers Tilted Kilt promo has already hit the auction site. And one person is asking a crazy amount. Just doesn't seem right to me to profit off this (although I understand for some it's a business and not a hobby).

Just keep in mind that people can ask for any amount they like, it is all meaningless unless somebody pays it.

In addition to the formal list on the Philly website, I am told that Sidekick (Art Hustle) had 3 new promos, one artist had Civil War P1-B by Cult Stuff (different from P1-C) and didn't 258 West have some, as well ?

For anyone who missed the Mars Attacks promo, we just sent stacks of the cards to key comic book stores around the country:

Golden Apple Comics in LA, Newbury Comics in downtown Boston, Green Brain in Dearborn, MI, TFAW in Portland, A1 Comics in Sacramento, House of Secrets in Burbank, Austin Books in Austin, TX Chameleon Comics in NYC (right around the corner from Topps!) and Midtown Comics on 42nd in NYC.

If you have a store near you that you feel would benefit from some of the cards, please let me know and I will see about sending them some! Be aware our stock is dwindling fast.

-MC
