As for the bonus card of Jobu, it's a fright:
The actual Jobu, by the way, still carries on.
The other five cards in the set repliicate the standard sized cards issued earlier this year. To recapitulate:
Roger Dorn (Corbin Bernson)
Eddie Harris (Chelcie Ross)
Jake Taylor (Tom Berenger)
Ricky Vaughn (Charlie Sheen)
Rachel Phelps (Margaret Whitten)
I still kinda wish they had included a card of Harry Doyle (Bob Uecker):
That ersatz Doyle is courtesy of Chris Olds over at Beckett. That's well worth a click as there are more fantasy cards from the movie/set over there.
While the marketing and timing of the larger set in a big boy wax pack was set up to stimulate sale over the summer, I'll bet some folks will spring for these as stocking stuffers.
I'd love to do a roundup of all the weird little promotional sets and one offs like this Topps has produced over the years. There are a number of them, some of which I have covered here previously. Many are not well publicized, especially the single cards designed for actual use in a film or given out at awards functions. I believe these types of sets have seen increased production in recent years.
