David R,

I think the real question is, did you buy all 10, and do you have any left? Hint! Hint! LOL!

Hope to see you at Philly next week.

Yes, I bought all 10 of the Dalmation promos for a whopping $ 5 total. The woman worked in a Disney Store down in Texas. I almost fell over when I confirmed what they were.

I kept two for myself, and actually gave the other 8 away to fellow promo collectors. I didn't ask for money. I believe in sharing the wealth.

I'll be in Philly all day Fri and part of Sat. See you there !

David

There are two promos I'm after right now, both from the new Buffy Season 7 set:

B7-MEM
B7-3 (midwest expo, yes?)

I too am chasing after the 2 buffy season 7 promos
B7-MEM
B7-3
also BM-1 from season 4
these 3 would give me a complete set of 63 buffy promos, including all 6 from connections - no mean feat for someone in the UK Smile

I'm not sure if I'll bother with the UK exclusive case promos though - can't tell how many there are gonna be (I have an angel season 4 embossed A4-UK numbered out of 200, but there is one on cardsinc auction this week numbered out of 175 but exactly the same card and embossing)

We did 6 3d flipz promo cards for Fellowship of the ring. It was one sheet with 6 promos on there.

We cut the 6 from the sheet

2 were sent to New Line

2 were kept at Cards Inc

1 was given recently to Paul Hart for his book

1 was lost !!

All have plain backs !! with the word prototype on the back !!

Now these i would say are rare. I am considering doing a competition for one with Harris on this site so stay tuned !!

Darren,

What was the image on the "lost" card, as I think I have got 2 of the 6 cards.

...get 'O' Level Maths???

Darren says he had 6 cards but has lost one. Dave H says he may have two of the cards lost...

Does this mean there are more than 6 cards???

At the moment it is the Andromeda A-DVD2, this was only released about a year ago in US DVD's but I cant find one anywhere.

The best one that I found recently was the Coca Cola sign of good taste recalled promo,
I paid next to nothing for it in with a bunch of other promo's and only when I looked in NSU did I see the list price. Does anyone know how many of these survived?

It's not my Holy Grail, but earlier this year I found a baseball card store in CA that had the 27 Desert Storm Landforce, Seaforce, and SkyForce prototypes (produced by Crown, 1991) along with the George Bush and Colin Powell prototypes AND the 4 Desert Storm promos produced by DSI. He sold me all 33 promos for $100. Smile

Good luck trying to find ANY of these !

David

I would be over joyed to ever find a Lion King SB1 promo. I need others that are much scarcer but this one is in the forefront.

By the way, to the poster who is looking for the Sandman Prototypes, #I thru VI, there is a set of all 7 up for bid on eBay. The seller has them listed as DC Vertigo Prototypes. How, ironic, You only have #VII and that is the only one that I still need! Roll Eyes

See y'all in Philly
