I have a few Gummy Cards from Inkworks (Alias) and Rittenhouse (Battlestar Galactica). Have also seen some others (Morbid Monsters).

Would these be considered promos or special inserts. Also some came with a printed piece of paper - Would these also be considered promos

Also, does anybody have a complete list of Gummy Cards?

They are promos. In the years we voted for the Gummie Awards (ballot cut out of an NSU issue late in the year) we'd get a card sent to us later as a thank you for voting. The paper that came with them wouldn't be a promo but collectors tend to keep those as well as sort of certificate.

Edit: I did a quick search of Card Talk and found a list plus a few notes made by Chesspieceface a few years ago:

"The list:

More Than Battlefield Earth (Comic Images 1994)
Star Trek Voyager (Skybox 1995)
The Lone Ranger (Dart 1996)
Babylon 5 (Fleer Skybox International 1997)
Star Wars Episode 1 (Topps 1998)
Charmed (Inkworks 1999)
More Morbid Monster Cards (NostalgiCards 2000)
Xena (Rittenhouse Archives 2001)
Alias (Inkworks 2002)
The Complete Battlestar Galactica (R.A. 2003)

The program was discontinued in 2004 for reasons that I don't think were ever made publicly known, but one could reasonably gather that it might have to do with people not following the rules of one card to a voter. Hard to say for sure, though."

Here are some additional notes on the Gummie promos:

More Than Battlefield Earth (Comic Images 1994) unnumbered - This one comes up for sale occasionally. It sells roughly in the $20-35 range.

Star Trek Voyager Season 1 (Skybox 1995) unnumbered - This is probably the most valuable one because it's still in-demand. Promo card collectors and Star Trek card collectors in general want it. It has sold in the $150-200 range.

The Lone Ranger (Dart 1996) unnumbered - This one has gone up and down and up again in value. It's about a $15-20 card.

Babylon 5 Season 4 (Fleer Skybox International 1997) unnumbered - This one sells pretty regularly for about $90-100.

Star Wars Episode 1 (Topps 1998) SW0 - You would think this would be among the more valuable Gummies but it seems a lot more people voted to get this card so a lot of people who wanted it got it then. It goes for about $30-40.

Charmed (Inkworks 1999) NSU-1 - This one was in-demand 10-20 years ago, but after Inkworks went out of business, more appeared on the market. It's maybe a $10-20 card now though I found one for $7 last year.

More Morbid Monster Cards (NostalgiCards 2000) G1 - This one has been one of the easier ones to find selling in the $5-10 range but I saw one go for $35 recently. We'll have to see if that's a real indication of an increase in value or just an outlier, someone not knowing the market on that one.

Xena Season 6 (Rittenhouse Archives 2001) Gummie 2001 - This one goes for about $25-30.

Alias Season 1 (Inkworks 2002) G1 - For some reason there are always several of these for sale at any given time. You can find it for a buck if watch for it.

The Complete Battlestar Galactica (R.A. 2003) Gummie 2003 - This one doesn't come up all the time and it sells in relatively low range given the popularity of the show. I saw one sell for $35 a few years ago but it might be more of a $40-60 card.

The values provided are based on what I've seen in recent years. Some cards have gone for more or less in that time, so as with any collectibles, use those numbers as reference points and try to determine others yourself to get your own idea of what you should expect to pay.

PCE 2008 lists the Star Wars Episode 1 card as part of the Star Wars Galaxy Collector magazine issue (page 139) which is a bit strange if given out as a NSU Gummie award. Presumeably the card numbering influenced the listing.

In addition PCE 2008 (page39) states that the first Gummie award was six Creator's Universe promo cards, would they have been the normal issue promos or the variants of P1 and Warhorse?

regards

John
