Here's the card I referred to from Comic-Con.



It was a contest card, each with a unique code that could be entered at a website to win the Joker's bag of cash (several different cash award prizes were available).

This was seemingly done as part of the viral marketing campaign for 'The Dark Knight' that I mentioned above, and this contest aspect was likely sponsored by Verizon Wireless & Nokia, given that their respective logos appear on the reverse (Batman) side.

It is standard trading card sized, but on playing card-type stock with rounded corners.

Interesting! You're right, it is too bad that they used the over-the-shoulder promo image of the Joker.

Here's the details of Nokia's involvement that resulted in the contest card.

https://www.verizon.com/about/...2008/06/pr2008-06-13

"Verizon Wireless customers will also find a Joker playing card with a code and a link to the www.fightforgothamcity.com Web site. Once on the Web site, customers can instantly find out if they have won The Joker's "bag of cash" containing $10,000, play games to win more The Dark Knight-themed prizes, and download exclusive The Dark Knight content from Verizon Wireless' V CAST service."

PSA has finally begun grading the 2008 Playground Maniacs Dark Knight stikcers, for those who are into the grading thing. I had tried unsuccessfully for months in 2021 to get them to acknowledge these.

I have not been able to find sealed boxes for over a year now. Just a handful of the comic con sets and loose packs, unfortunately.
