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


I was wondering how many people have found their "Holy Grail" promo.
The Yoda P3 is still way out of my league. Here is what the last one ended for. $760.01
Yoda P3 ended auction

I did finally get the Charmed Gummi, and for a great price. $8.00.
I'm not sure what I'm going to start dreaming about now, probably the Buffy and/or Charmed FOA promos.

I have a few
The Ninth Gate Movie: 9-Card Set (just recently go this one).
Disney Treasures: P1
Batman Saga of the Dark Knight: 8-uip panel
DC Master Series: C1
Marvel Universe 4: Red Foil Promo Set
Angry Christ (Dawn): Convention Promo
Star Wars Trilogy: H (4 card) or G (5 card)Sets
Sandman Silver Set

I've seen some of these on rare occasions, but they are usually quite pricey.

I'm not really a promo collector, but when I get them I keep them in a promo folder

The rarest one I own is the Carry On FOC1 promo numbered 33/100 given to me by Darren a few Memorabilias ago!

The rarest one I would love to own is the complete DS9 RAUKDS9 promo, but, I dont really collect them as I said, whatever I finds I keeps!

That would have to be Bettie Page Illustrated by Topps. Nice card with artwork by Dave Stevens who is a favorite of mine (from back in the day when he did Rocketeer.)

Shame that Topps cancelled the set.Shake Head

The Star Trek Master Series National Sports Collectors Convention was on my list for a long time. I actually found one on eBay about a year and a half ago. I think I paid $15-$20 for it (#0293/7,500). Good luck on your quest!

I actually cleared those 2 off my list (I actually have 2 of the National sheet, 1 is in only fair shape however)

hi all...

as i am now completely focusing on charmed cards(well apart from CSI), i suppose my holy grail will be the connections p-FOA card. or maybe any of the rarer season 1 promo's.

am bidding on a couple of the ones i havent got on ebay, and am bidding on the charmed gummie card. wont know if i have won this till the morining though, because as much as i want it, i cant stay up til 4 in the morining! but i will be crossing all of my fingers in the hope i do win it. have only wanted it since i heard about it (this afternoon) but now i know its ou there ...i want...i want.. i want!!

Well, I won't bid on the one on Ebay currently at $35.00 Eek LOL
Not that I need Charmed promos, anyways. I just 'offloaded' my Charmed collection onto Ebay recently.

What's your promo card holy grail?

I don't have *one* but a couple:
Buffy Season 1 BP2(group pic); Season 4 BM-1; Reflections P2. Tomb Raider PT1.

Knowing my luck I'll probably come across them when I'm not collecting anymore.

I've got to agree - the Buffy Reflections P2 is one I need to complete a Reflections master set (along with the A5).

I don't know that I'd consider them "holy grail-like"...but i got great deals on the 3 Buffy: Connections parallel promos:

P1-P, I got for around $25
PUK-P, for about $20
P-FOA, which I don't think is as hard to find now, but I picked it up when it first came out for $15

Plus, I just think they're all pretty! Smile

As for ones I hope to find soon(at reasonable cost)....Buffy, season 4 - BM-1, and from season 6 B6-2, the non-foil...i always seem to find the foil version and have had a tough time tracking down a non-foil one.

The only promo on my list is
X-files season 3 P5 TOPPS(The promo card encyclopedia says it was A Philly SHOW eXclusive) but no one will share it with me.

However, I still unoffically need 6 of the 7 sandman silver promo cards and Star trek DS9 RAUKDS9.

Sarah, you could see if Paul Hart still has copies of the first edition of his Gum Guide book for sale - I think the card was in that.
