No. The handful I've gotten have been given away to younger players who like large, useless stuff.
My experience has been that the people who like the oversize cards are the same people who think Vizzerdrix and Trained Orgg are good.

Foreigning out SI, currently 33/75. The only thing better than a T1 kill is doing it with cards no one has ever heard of and/or can't read. If anyone has any of the usual pieces, PM me. I'm willing to buy/trade.
People who play commander don't like them either! They're too large to actually play with, you need another copy for when it gets tucked into your deck, they aren't available for the vast, vast majority of playable commanders, and you look like a tool with your giant card taking up most of the table space.
Oh, I thought he was talking about playing a spell that is countering a spell with counters on it as it comes into play, but I see you guys were just discussing whether he was flashing a creature with flash in order to flash a flashback or just flashing a creature with flash but not needing flash in order to flashback a spell without flash.
I have, from time to time, entertained the thought of building a casual deck completely with the oversized cards. I know I would not be able to use it at any kind of a sanctioned event, but, I do think it would be funny to plop down at the dinner table with a deck made purely of 6x9 cards. I have not yet even taken the time to see if it would actually be possible to build a functioning deck out of them, but, I have been slightly curious.

Just because you can't play with them doesn't mean they're not cool. I've used mine to decorate the inside of my MTG box and my trade binder. They're not meant to be used in gameplay and I feel sorry for anyone narrow-thinking enough that they can't find another use for 'em.
I cry when I think about how all of the oversized commander cards they've released could have been new planechase planes, archenemy schemes, or planar phenomena; something useful to an existing casual format. Alternatively, they could have produced actual foiled copies of the new legends in the commander products, at their normal size, satisfying people's desire to foil out their decks. I know not everyone likes foiled cards, but I'm willing to bet that more folks would have appreciate this than not. I hope some of the fan griping about the lack of utility behind oversized cards is getting through to wizards. I guess we won't be able to tell until either the next round of commander products are released, or if they try another helvault-style gimmick with return to ravnica.
There exist oversize sleeves so I'm pretty sure those cards are meant to be played.
Using oversize cards to decorate binders is something that you do only when you've really ran out of options, like building a Menger sponge out of bulk commons/lands.
I like Magic cards that are actually Magic cards. I also like token cards, since they make the board state easier to interpret and nicer looking. Oversized cards are a waste of cardboard. They do nothing useful that the actual card couldn't already do.
If the store owner says that I can't trade in the premises, I'll just go outside. If he says that I can't trade within 10m of his premises, I'll go to 11 meters. If he says that he doesn't want to see me trading, I will put a basket over his head and continue trading.
Yes, he's a local legend. He's only known to take his clothes off before he goes into the Ladies' Lockerroom. Nobody knows what he does in there because he's invisible, but it's almost certainly tons of masturbating.
