Classic Batman Promos in NSU
If anyone has a P5 for trade, please contact me!

Mac, I don't have an extra. Sorry. I only have an extra on P2

To answer your June 30 post, I had to keep buying many copies of NSU to get one.

It's really frustrating. I've bought a dozen copies of the magazine and still haven't found a P5.

Believe me, I totally feel your pain

I hope that Crypto doesn't keep doing this with their promos in future NSUs, namely, having 5 or 6 different promos in each issue, which you have to chase after

To be honest, I was not happy a few months ago where they had different Hobbit, Walking Dead and Outlander promos where you had to buy multiple copies to get.

Hopefully Mac has located a P5 by now. I am also looking for one if anyone has a spare available. I have no problem with Cryptozoic drip feeding this set on to the market the way they have but it is seriously frustrating when a single card issued in NSU is seemingly printed in such short numbers it feels like your searching for the Holy Grail. How many people will eventually have the other 43 cards but still be looking for this D7-P5 to complete the set!

Here is the only one I have ever seen on ebay, which ended 8 months ago

He actually had 3 of them, but all gone now

And there were 9 new cards at the 2016 SDCC, so does this mean that there are 26 total so far ?

9 chase cards in the 2015 DC Villains set
9 from SDCC
6 NSU promos
2 regular promos (P2, P3)

There were 9 more in the 2016 Justice League set, so I guess we are up to 35 cards now

You don't seem to see many of the 1 per box 2015 DC Villains Batman cards around...

Thanks David, seeing how Mac purchased 12 copies and did not get a P5 you wonder how that eBay seller managed to get his hands on three, if from the magazine he/she certainly beat the odds. Unfortunately I had not started collecting this set at thetime these three were listed.

That's right Tommy, 35 now released, perhaps the remaining 9 could well be in a forthcomimg Cryptozoic release. The cards from Batman Super Villains are tough to find now , I have only got two myself so far. It is just that I find the NSU P5 card really frustrating. Plenty of the other NSU cards have sold on eBay and I guess virtually all of these buyers will be looking for the P5 as well. Of course we will never know just how many were printed but there seems to be way more collectors of this set than there are P5 cards. I get the thrill of the chase but this card seems way too elusive considering it is one of a 44 card set!

Regarding the P5, maybe you can contact Beckett ? Just a thought.

On the 2015 DC Villains, I agree with Tommy. Just looking around at the auctions, I saw a complete set of 9 sell for $ 100, and then just 2 singles. I guess at 1 per box, they are all gone now

There are a few Justice League sets of 9 available

I need all promos from set. My NSU did not have any in there.
April 24, 2017, 11:30 PM
just checking, was this a batman promo in the latest NSU vol 28 #2 ?

They came in the issue released a year ago, spring 2016

More than a year later, I have not seen a P5 appear on ebay since May 2016

However, recent searches show that in the past few months, P1, P2, P3, P4 have all appeared

Curiously, no recent P6 promos...
June 17, 2017, 02:18 AM
I'm glad to say I have managed to get all 6 Smile

Hammer, how were you able to find P5 ?

I have one, but didn't get it from ebay or from a copy of NSU. Someone sent me one, however.
June 28, 2017, 11:38 AM
I got mine from a US friend who managed to get 2 in the NSU's they purchased

Are people still looking for the P5 promo on this set from 2016 ?

I wonder how many have shown up on ebay over the past few years

For reasons unknown, P1 to P4 and P6 are always on ebay, but never P5.

I came across a website where some die hard Batman collector from the UK is still looking for the P5 promo, 3 years after the release

He posted that he's offering $ 125 dollars for one ! So far, no one has one to sell him
May 09, 2019, 04:22 PM
There is a P5 currently listed on the auction site, but I cannot justify paying $150 for this card.
