Incarnadine, I must give a big THANK YOU to you. After much searching with no luck, I forgot about these promos but started looking again after I saw your post. I found a set with a BIN for $80 at that famous auction site. I would've never looked at that time if you hadn't posted! Wave

But for me, the Cordelia is my Holy Grail.

I really wanted the RAUKDS9 Promo from the Complete DS9 but since it was only released in United Kingdom, I couldn't get it. I did see it on eBay but I don't do eBay. At least I was lucky enough to get the Golden Moments set from Star Trek DS9 MFTF.

Just 2 more to go!

I think I need to add Xena Art&Images P3. I have managed to get P3's for Quotable, Season 4/5 and Animated Adventures at excellent prices.
Rarely see an Art&Images P3 though! Twice I saw one and both times it was a USA auction with no Paypal. Grrr!

I just got one of my holy grails off of Ebay. Paid more than I wanted, but this card does not come up for auction too often. It is sort of an obscure card, but one that I had been looking for for years now of one of my favorite singers, Joan Jett, at an Orioles Baseball training camp no less:

At the moment my holy grail is the Buffy Season 5 B5-2 NSU Embossed Variant promo. Not exactly the rarest of promos but I have all of the others except for this one. I also don't have the Buffy WBTV set but since they are not for an Inkworks set I have no interest in them (they are nice cards though Wink)

I've managed to get most of the promos I'm looking for most recently getting the NSU Voyager card.

But two I'd still like are:

The Star Trek Generations S1 card

and

The Terminator Impel Promo

Yes, I did say the Generations S1 card, and yes I know its a £1 card but did you know there's two versions of it? Look on the back. In large friendly print you'll see the word PROTOTYPE. Except its spelt PROTOTPYE.

The card back also says "Happy Thanksgiving". There's a variant of the card from New Zealand with prototype spelt correctly and the Happy Thanks giving text missing. The card front is identical. I've got a scan of the card but not the card itself.

So frustrating every few days the card comes up on eBay I see a scan of the front and I ask them to check the back, knowing the answer. But one day ...

Just got another one of my Holy Grails. The Scorpion King UMJ-1 which was only inserted in the Japanese version of the Soundtrack CD.



Paid $22.60 for it which was a little higher than I was hoping, but the card does not come up for auction very often..

Mike.

Mike, this card was in the movie soundtrack CD not the movie dvd.

I got mine at the time by trading with someone in Japan.

Personally i think $22 is an amazing bargain. Clap

Wolfie,

Thanks. I knew that. Not sure where my mind was when I was typing the message. Old age I guess!

I tried finding someone in Japan at the time to either purchase it for me, or get it and trade it to me. I had a few maybes but nothing ever came through on it.

Mike.

Hey dmatsuda,
that's some amazing holy grail you got there!!
And you got all 6 of that series. That's great!
I am really jealous now, am looking for that set for quite some time now... Have never seen it on a auction site yet and trust me.. I am looking for it. I am also still looking for the JOHNNY LIGHTNING CARDS... and the Buffy Video game set Drool

But at least I got the buffy BM-1, B7-Uk embossed/sticker and the B5-2 NSU embossed variant promo! Smile

And I am extremely happy with the Buffy Palz cards (Series 1 and 2 made by Inkworks) I bought a couple months ago.

Thanks MvG. The Buffy WB Promo Set is still easily one of the my best (if not the best) eBay finds. Smile

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

David



David, the one's you mentioned are high on my want list also. My grail keeps changing, I have been pretty lucky this year with the promos, I picked up a few no one has, well maybe one other person. I guess my new grail would be the P0 Biohazard card from Creator Master Series 1994.

Definitely the Star Wars Galaxy 2 P3 (Yoda) promo--that's just a cool looking card.
