Nemesisboy, good luck trying to find those LEXX cards. I have only seen one set in the 3 years since they came out, and that was the one I acquired recently from a fellow collector. The cards are #ed 1 of 4, 2 of 4, etc. and do not indicate in any way that they were released at Suncoast, incidentally, but apparently they were. I have never seen them on ebay.


I just picked up a Lexx set in a trade, so they are out there, just have to keep digging! Smile I agree, I have not seen any on Ebay either, and I have been looking.

Mike.

It's been a while since I've commented in this thread, so I thought I'd add another of my holy grail promos: Buffy Season 5 B5-2(embossed version).

That's the only Buffy 5 promo i need for my set, but it's not a 'holy grail' one for me.

Good idea to post a list, lol, who knows what others may be able to find - or have in their collection.

I was *very* close to the Lion King SB1, I knew who had one, he didn't know how rare it was, paid next to nothing for it, yet wouldn't trade it to me/sell it to me for anything as he needed it to complete his small collection Frown
I didn't want it for myself. I was helping a friend with his wish list of hard to find promos.
You know who you are Wave

I fall into the same promo dark hole as many others, with the Superman Platinum SW1 from Wal-Mart being the grail of my promo card collecting.
I have placed numerous requests for it on web page needs lists, patiently waited since 1999 for it to show up on ebay, called from a long list of non-sports dealers I googled trying to find one that had this elusive card.
I even called Wal-Mart national headqurters in Bentonville, Arkansas trying to find out if there was an extra one in a drawer or box somewhere.
If nothing else, this chain lets me know I'm not the only one that has been confounded by this darn card.

Others I'm enjoying waiting to find.....

The Silver Sandman cards

DC Cosmic Teams promos 0, 000, and P1

DC Master promos C1, D1, and H1

Ultraverse II promo P00 (Yrial)

I would have to say B6-GG.
Although, I cannot really say that I have been hunting it down!

I think the promos next on my list are Buffy season 2 M6-M12. I'm trying to put together a binder of Buffy promos in the order listed in the Promo Card Encyclopedia.

Mine would be the Goldeneye Numbered Promo, which I got a while ago from Darren at Cards Inc for a price that I couldn't argue with.
But i wouldn't mind another one if it was numbered 007/500 or 006/500. That would be SOOOOOO cool!
My other favourite promo(s) is the Die Another Day 6-card promo packet made available at a NJ convention (I think), that are foil versions of the Japanese movie posters.

The only other promos I'm searching for are the James Bond Connoisseur Collection San Diego 4 card set and the X-Files Connections P-FOA card (but at a more reasonable price).

Out of curiosity, do people consider preview sets 'Promo Cards' or would you regard them separately?

I am looking for Marvel Onslaught promos that were put into the Spiderman premium set:
Preview card 1 of 9, and 2 of 9 would make my day.
The shop Star Wars .com promos would be nice too.

Scratch that, I've got my hands on a set of the SD promos in really good cond. for a fair price, which means I've got all Bond promos Clap

Thanks so much, but I decided to stop collecting charmed and traded off all of my charmed cards Frown I know, I know, what's wrong with me! I decided to concentrate on others like Xena, Lost, Battlestar Galactica, Serenity, and Farscape - too many as it is LOL!
