As of this evening, I need the CZP1 promo from Thunderbirds the movie - it was a Collector Zone exclusive that I missed at the time; apart from that and one autograph (that I'm close to getting!) I'll have a master (when certain eBay wins arrive and not including all the various artists who did sketches for the set).
Au Res.,
Paul

Mr moderator,
shouldn't this thread be moved to the promo collecting board?

Not really - this is the Greatest Hits section, where topics that have attracted a great deal of long-term interest are relocated. I think it originally started in the promo section, but it's been here for the last couple of years (as far as I recall!)
Au Res.,
Paul

It was a decision made some time ago (a few years at least) and has not stirred up similar criticism before; I wasn't the one who moved it... Smile

So far my holy grail promos:
Witchblade TV - the UK promo
Witchblade TV - ComicCon promo card set
Star Trek DS9 - 6 card foil promo
Star Trek the Card Game - Chekov Crew Variant (I have all 10 promos in this set)
Babylon 5 CCG - Surprise - I have all of the cards in this set, this is the best
Star Trek Master Series - uncut 6 card promo
Lost in Space Classic Episodes - SP1 promo
Godzilla JPAmada 1995 - Card 103 plus the binder
Lost in Space Frosties - set of 16 promo cards

I am also close to finishing a master set of Jurassic Park holograms:
For the silver I have 15/16
- I need raptor 1 of 4
For the gold I have 10/16
- Raptor - 3 of 4
T-Rex - 4 of 4
Spitter - 1 of 4, 4 of 4
Egg - 1 of 2, 2 of 4

So I can confirm that in the silver every number should exist on every image. I believe that every number exists in every combination for the gold, but I can not confirm it as yet.

Geino,

Welcome to Card Talk. Glad to have another promo collector amongst us.

2 of your holy grails (Witchblade TV UKP & Lost in Space SP1 have been on Ebay quite a bit lately. The people who bought most of Inkworks inventory has been selling them.

Again, welcome.

Mike.

Thanks

I collect all kinds of non-sports cards. I am in the process of updating my web site to list what I still need and what I have available to trade.


Another grail I have is the set of 6 Star Trek Generations Behind the Scenes cards.

Don't collect tons of promos, but one I would love to add to my Six Feet Under master set is the HBO promo. Never found one.

Mine is the Lion King SB1.

I have a huge Lion King collection mostly of Mufasa character items and the card would complete the cards portion of my card collection.

Hey Bill got your cards and you should get mine next week! - Thanks again.

I think I found a "Holy Grail" promo while I was moving:

Star Trek Master Series 1993 oversized sheet which NEVER had a sticker on it. It was sent to me by Skybox years ago because I was providing them with information about possible cards to produce. They sent me this card and I though nothing of it at the time. The corners are dinged from moving more times than I care to count, but the card is in overall good condition.

I have one in my collection with the sticker, but I stumbled across this one the other day and that is when I relized I may have a good one. Anybody else have them without the sticker?

I will post a picture on my web site in coming weeks:

homeworld-defense.com

The other promo item I have added to my collection:
Star Trek das Card Game Tee Shirt. Only 9 more promo items to go! 6 cards and 3 other items.

One of my Holy Grail cards for sure;



Not because it might be rare or anything like that (I actually dont know) but because it pictures a dear friend of mine from some time ago who I have not seen in years. Ari used to to bring his band to my music studio to rehearse and record in NYC and come to my home to visit and play music on many occasions in the late 90s and early 00's. It was a real treat recently to receive this set of Promo Cards and be flipping through it and out of nowhere have my wacky friend Ari staring back at me with that wild moustache and that grin!
