Many thanks for your assistance, I only wish I could remember where and how I came by the Inside Comics cards especially with three all bearing the same number. It was most likely an eBay transaction as I have not been to a card show in some years.

regards

John

That's a nice bonus to have matching serial numbers. You can try contacting the artists directly.

I have a set of these also, they came free with a magazine called 'Inside Comics' which only lasted for a few issues.
My cards also have the same number.

I've seen these cards identified as from a Hostess promotion in 1991 but there were two other ones that year: the yellow background stickers and the white-bordered "Secret of the Ooze" cards. I vaguely recall that these were vending machine cards/stickers from the 90's but does anyone know for sure? The licensee is Surge LIC, Inc., which is the same company that had the license to do the yellow-background stickers.

I received this card in a lot of maybe 20 promo cards including some oddball regional city services promos and business cards in trading card form. This card is standard size with the same red sparkle/glitter pattern front and back. I asked the seller about it but he didn't know where it came from, just unloading a lot he picked up as part of a larger lot.

I didn't know what it was guessing that it might be one of those Dart Flipcards business card promos but I checked PCE2008 and there's nothing like it listed. I thought the front and/or back might peel-off but there's no indication of that so I didn't try to do it. Maybe somebody here knows what it is or has heard of something like it.

A search shows that there is something called a Red Glitter card that you can order as decorative paper. I think its one-sided though, but it resembles it.

Are you sure its not a separator or some sort of pack filler? If it can't peel or open up and has no writing on it, I don't know how its a trading card, promo or otherwise. A business card has to say something. The only other things I can think of is some sort of token or access pass or a card from a game, but that's wild guesses.

I didn't think of a pack filler. That could be it as it explains why it's standard card size. It could be a separator from a company that sells card storage boxes for the same reason. I assume it was thrown into the lot with the promos as an afterthought.

Maybe it's an extremely generous gift currently unrecognized. Maybe if I stare into it long enough, I will see the future.

My guess would be that it's a printer's sample of an available card stock.

I've received samples like this before of different papers available to print on.

I didn't think of that either. That makes sense too.

Hi,

Starting to go through my collection with the intent of downsizing. Found these in the back of a serenity binder.

Are they Evolution? Any idea of value?

Baker is from Evolution and typically sells in the range of US$150-$225.
Bulloch is also from Evolution and usually sells for around US$175-$225, but the most recent sale was for US$418.75. So that one might be on the rise.
The Barclay is from Evolution Update and sells for around US$65.
Great cards! Thumb Up

Thanks for response, I'm so out of touch with my card collection. Most of it has been sitting in storage for years.

Been checking ebay and some prices are crazy, the Serenity binder I found them in is listed for over $300.

Funny thing though the more I'm looking the more things I'm finding to buy so my downsizing might go the other way..
