For me it would have to be either the Pro Set Little Mermaid pop-out or the 101 Dalmatians SW1 PetsMart promo. I've actually seen the SW1 card in person (at the Philly show about a year ago), but the price was waaaay out of my budget. Frown

At the moment, my[1] most wanted promo is probably the Buffy B6-2 foil variant what appeared in NSU a while back. I got the regular B6-2 in my copy, and I just want the foil version to complete my Season 6 promo set! I keep getting outbid on eBay whenever I see one there!
Behind it is the Buffy Connections P-ukp - which I know I'll never get, with the NSU Gummies I don't already have coming up on the rails.

I don't collect many promos, but I would say the Disney Treasures P1 is my holy grail, although right now I would kill for the Midwest Expo Enterprise promo...

If I have to pick just one "Holy Grail" card it would have to be the Superman Platinum Walmart promo SW1, man is that a tough one to find.

But I have a few others that are running a close second including:

Speed Racer mail in promo P3
Star Trek Generations New Zealand Exclusive
Star Wars Finest Refractor promo sheet
Star Wars Lays Mace Windu bonus card
Lion King SB1 Superbowl card
Godzilla Inkworks P1 regualr sized recalled promo

I have seen all of these cards except the Speed Racer promo and I"m sure that is as close as I will ever get to these cards. Cool

Definately, the smaller of the two Upper Deck / Disney Magical Partnership promos! --- I have the larger one and it's lonely ;-)

I really liked that Star Wars Yoda promo that was shown awhile back. I don't think I'll ever have one but I thought it was beautiful.

A promo that I will have someday is the Charmed Gummi. Actually, I want all the Gummies. Oh yes, they will be mine!

Back around 1995 I picked up the DC Verses Marvel "Mirage" lenticular motion promo that shows a blended image of Batman & Wolverine. Bought the card from a sports card dealer and paid a nominal amount. Did not know what I had and traded it for some Star Wars promo cards. Would love to have that card back in my collection. When it occasionally shows up on eBay it's usually sold in the range of $75 - $100. Maybe one day I'll bite the bullet and spring for it.

At the moment, mine would have to be the Disney Hunchback of Notre Dame Cel card put out by Record Town.

I have all of the Suncoast cels, as well as the Bambi Record Town cel, just missing the one. Would be nice to finish the set.

There are many other great promo cards that I would love to have such as the Dalmations PetsMart and the Superman SW1, I just know most of them will remain outside of my reach!!!

I'd die and go right to heaven if I could find the following promos:

Thomas the Tank Engine and Friends--pack of 4 cards (Spectrum, 1993) that say "for promotional use only", or something similar to that, on the backs. I know of two people who have these, but I have never seen them for sale on ebay or anywhere else. I have held them in my hand

Blackball Comics (SkyBox, 1994) Everyone has the extremely common P0 and P00, but I know of only one person who has the P01 and P02. These were given away at certain cons back in the day. The card set itself was cancelled. Again, I have never seen anyone with these for sale. There is a picture of them in Cards Illustrated issue #5, I believe. I tracked down one of the artists and he sent me a scan of a sheet of the cards, but he claims not to have the P01 or P02 laying around


The first poster above mentioned the 101 Dalmations SW1. Three years ago I was surfing the net and I found a Disney collector from Texas who had 10 of them for sale for 50 cents each. Smile
