Junior's Cards and Comics will have a 2-card puzzle promo for Vampirella. Check out the Vampirella thread on News and Rumors for the image.

Back in 1994, there was a Black Web promo (check PCE).

Last year, in the artists' row there was a 3-card set given out for "Anne Frankenstein: Nazi Hunter." The cards are marked "WonderCon 2011" with the logo on the front bottom.

I think there was another one in the 90's.

Sorry for the long wait. The cards were handed out one set per person so I have just that one. I have seen it for sale only a couple of times since. If you still don't have it, I'll keep my eyes open for another one.

I haven't been to WonderCon since 2011 because it moved to the Los Angeles area after that but I heard it's back in the Bay Area (now in San Francisco - used to be in Oakland). I'm going to try to check it out this year.

There were two regular-size cards given out at the 2002 WonderCon in Oakland which may or may not have been given out elsewhere. One is "Don Marquez's Fantastic Stories" which promotes the first issue of the comic book series of the same name. It shows artwork on both sides from both variant covers (warrior woman/giant ape). The other is "Don Marquez's Retro Blast" which promotes the first issue of another comic book series. It shows the artwork of the cover (female astronaut) and has a blank back.

Neither card is marked as a WonderCon exclusive but I've never seen these in trade lists from other collectors and only rarely elsewhere.

I saw a set on ebay awhile back. Not sure if it sold. Think it was around $20.

Yes, Kevins is right. A set went unsold a week and a half ago. The asking price was $24.99.

Hi Piko,

Yes, it was P2 and it was in 1995. That one took the longest for me to find to finish the Series 1 promo set and I gladly paid for a rather faded copy (sitting in the sun too long?) not knowing that it would be an easy card to find in the future.

Eventually, I got a good one too. Some of those X-Files promos were hard to get in the late 90's. Everybody wanted them. The P1 that promotes the comic book, the P5 from Season 2 (Mulder as an old man) and the Season 3 binder promo were the tougher ones if you didn't keep track of all the magazines of the time. There was always one you had to trade for but I got lucky finding a few cheap Season 2 P5's and I traded the extras for what I didn't have.
