    Interesting Facts about the Cards:

    • Created to represent top executives of Wal-Mart during this time of 1990 from Hasbro as a promotion. These filecards where not sold to general public but issued to Store Managers. Most were not keep and destroyed and or lost.

    • The Ultimate Guide to G.I. Joe 1982-1994 listing shows these Cards to be Rare.

    • These specific cards came from the Bentonville Arkansas the area of the Wal-Mart Home Office location.

    • Each filecard at the bottom states the following “The name ------ does identify a known, living person.”

    • Each filecard was laminated after they were autographed in 1990.

    • Sam Walton’s filecard was encapsulated in glass and on display at Walton’s 5 & 10 museum for a short time after his death in Bentonville Arkansas.

    • Mr. Walton was awarded numinous awards world wide including the Medal of Freedom Award honored by President George Bush Sr.

    • He was listed as one of the wealthiest men in the world and the retail chain that he began is still the largest in the world.

    • These I have been told that these are the rarest of the rare and possibly the only ones that were autographed. After the display in the Walton’s 5 & 10 these were taken out of public view.

    • As stated above Mr. Glass along with the others were members of the executive staff of Wal-Mart during that time. He now owns the K.C. Chief’s.

    • Current listing for Samual M. Walton's autograph on ebay under "historydirect" shows a value of approximately $4,500.00.

    Probably by the people who the characters on the cards are based on....

    For clarification, what would a child want with these? I think I know the set you are referring to and it is very rare. I believe they only handed them out at a board meeting or something like that. Would not seem like a good thing to give to a child, being so valuable and all.
