To promote the 2002 Diamond Kings set, one card from the first 150-cards in the base set was randomly inserted into the May and July, 2002 issues of Beckett Baseball. The May issue featured a Gold printed Diamond Kings logo on card. These were later changed for the main set, so Beckett issued the updated SAMPLE versions in the July issue featuring the Diamond Kings logo in Silver foil. Each card has the word "SAMPLE" foil-stamped in silver on the back with ten percent of all cards stamped in gold foil.

These are one of the most popular Beckett SAMPLE cards ever produced.

Hawaii Trade Conference Promos

Attendees of the 2002 Hawaii Trade Conference in February, 2002 received a pack of six Diamond King promo cards. The cards completely parallel the 150-card base set, but can be readily distinguished by the "2002 Hawaii Trade Conference" gold foil logo stamped on the front. Randomly seeded into these packs are a parallel which is serial-numbered to 20 copies.

Those who attended a special end-of-conference dinner party thrown by Donruss-Playoff received a special Blue Framed Diamond King. The Blue DKs are are serial-numbered to either five or one copy, and came encased inside a BGS slab.
