Yes, and you need an Albertosaurus or Albertella t-shirt for sure.

I have an unusual card, undoubtedly the largest card in my collection. Very hard to store

It is on the 1993 Creators Universe set by Dynamic. Back of card says SG1

It is Hellshock, but it is not the regular sized card that everyone has seen. It is a HUGE movie poster sized card (made of cardboard)

Too large to scan. Not sure if anyone else has seen it. I have no idea as to how I obtained it

I don't see a source for that poster card on Allender's site and it's not listed on the Creator's Universe page in "Comic Cards and Their Prices" (1994), a detailed guide to comics-related cards released up to 1994. Interesting.

He lists

Hellshock Print (Poster-sized, numbered to 2500)
-- Hellshock Jae Lee


However, I am fairly certain that mine says SG1 on the back.

Todd might not list this one in his PCE promo update because this is a set of promo stickers rather than cards so I'll note them here among the oddball cards. At the moment I understand it to be a 4-card set of unnumbered Furby stickers (Con Agra Foods/Tiger Electronics, 1999) but there might be more. They were inserted one per package of Kid Cuisine dinners and they're a little smaller, 2 1/4 x 3 3/16 inches, than standard card size. They promote the Furby toys that were popular at the time.

These stickers are distinguishable by the color of the Furby on the front. The backs offer a list of English words with the Furby language (Furbish) translation included. These stickers are also odd because they have kind of a furry front surface.

n.n. (light brown, black, and white Furby)
n.n. (dark brown, black, and white Furby)
n.n. (black and yellow Furby)
n.n. (blue and pink)

Actor Tim McInnerny, who plays a recurring role on the TV show "Outlander," was sent special cards, designated "TM" on the back, to sign for the Outlander Season 1 trading card set (Cryptozoic, 2016). He signed and mailed them back to the company but they never arrived. They later appeared for sale on Ebay. Someone had found them at an unclaimed freight store and then put them up for sale. Cryptozoic doesn't consider this "TM" card part of the set since it was not officially released, but you know collectors, many have considered it part of the set, officially released or not.

This card has been discussed elsewhere on Card Talk but it deserves mention here as well along with a look at it. The actor included a doodle with his signature on the card blow. He also signed some of the cards without a doodle.

Here's a promo (KF Holdings, 2002) you can find listed under "Meet Aaron Carter" in PCE2008. It's oddball because it's "heat activated." When you first look at the front, you see silhouettes of a person and a star but when you press your hand on the image, it changes to a view of singer Aaron Carter with his name in the star. It was a Kraft product insert.

Sadly, Aaron Carter passed away last weekend.

This is an autograph card (Stricty Ink Limited, 2007/2008) for a planned trading card set showcasing the art of Walt Howarth but the project was cancelled. Only a promo, this card, and I think some sketch cards ended up getting printed. I'm not sure if both were given out but the autograph card appeared on the secondary market some time ago. It's unusual in that there's a printed example of the artist's signature on the card and then he signed under it

I'm not sure what this card is. It's from the Dragon Ball (JPP/Bird Studio, 1995) set but it's not in the Allender listing nor any price guide. It's marked "G" where the number would be on the back. I put together an image of the front and back from images in an online sale (sold for $29.99) - see below. It appears to have a refractor front. The seller says it's a promo. Does anyone know if it's a promo or perhaps some rare chase card. One of the NSU pop-out price guides from 1999 lists a "special collector card" but doesn't note whether/how it's numbered.

I don't know. I haven't learned anything more about the card since the previous post.

Another oddball card for the pile...it's a promo for the "Bernie Wrightson: Master of the Macabre" trading card set (FPG, 1993) which was inserted with an issue of "Advance" magazine. Right off, you see it's square-shaped measuring 3 1/2 x 3 1/2 inches (not too many cards like that). You don't see it for sale very often either.
