Skyscrapers Top Trumps

Hi Everyone, newbie here. I hope I've dropped this in the correct section.

I'm after some help in seraching for some rare Top Trumps Skyscraper bonus collector cards. There is a standard pack of 30 Skyscraper Top Trumps available in many lauguages around the world, UK and US etc, however, they also produce some exclusive "Super" Top Trumps bonus chase cards for inclusion into these packs to "bling" the pack up, and its these exclusive collector super cards that I'm trying to look out for in the US.

The 4 super cards, as far as I'm aware are: John Hancock Center, Sears Tower, Prudential Tower and The Rockefeller Center.

I gather they may have/are available from the Gift Stores within the actual Skyscrapers?. The card stats are compiled by Emporis and Alain' Spiderman' Roberts. I've tried emails to the various attractions, but without any joy, and help would be very much appreciated, many thanks, Ian : )

I'm only everso slightly jealous Leeds the best ; ) ! - That was one of the attractions that I telephoned from the UK to see if they would send me one, but they said I had to go there in person. Thanks for letting me know how you got it though, it helps to know how it was made available.

Thanks for that, much appreciated, I do keep my eye out on there and on the main top trumps site, managed to pick up the German Messe Turm and the New Zealand Skytower Super cards from eBay and the attractions, but the Rockefella went out of my range as it was so rare, so worth keeping hold of !

From my experience with the other US super top trumps cards (us geeks call them STT's), they are often given free with the tickets to the actual attraction, to promote you to buy the main pack from the Gift Store, although sometimes a crafty email to the attraction strikes lucky and they send you one for nothing.

As for value, I've seen the few Skyscraper super cards that have been on eBay reach around the £30-£50 price, as there is a large collectors market for these rare super cards. A bit out of my range, so I've been trying the freebie email route, but without a lot of joy yet, but the Skyscrapers cards have some great images and stats on them, and they're very popular, hence the good price these bonus cards make : )

Very nice !

This is one of my Skyscraper super cards, this came as a lucky freebie from the people at the Skytower in New Zealand. The NZ one isn't nearly as valuable at the rare US super cards, but still great to add to the main deck.

A bit of a long shot this, but I don't suppose anyone finds themselves near the Skywalk at the Prudential Building in Boston? I gather they've now got their own Skyscrapers super card and I'd love a copy for my collection : )

CN Tower Skyscraper Top Trumps Supercard

Another long shot, but if anyone finds themselves at the CN Tower they are issuing their own individual Skyscrapers Canadian supercard, a bonus card to add to the main Skyscrapers Top Trumps deck - I'm in the UK and I'd love a copy for my own collection if someone gets one and doesn't need it - many thanks
