I don't know any filter/wildcard method that will filter on cells that contain whole numbers (0 - 9).  But you can do this with a helper column that will identify if the original cell contains any digits.

If your original data is in column A, add this array formula (using [Ctrl]+[Shift]+[Enter]) in an adjacent column and then copy it down as far as needed:

You'll see TRUE or FALSE values:  TRUE means there is at least one digit in the original cell.
