I think it was. It was only for one set (regular 2006 Topps) and was supposively inserted in just retail packs. I know that Wal Mart and Target could not keep the boxes and packs stocked due to everyone chasing them. It was on multiple news channels and even Keith Olbermann payed a top penny for one of the cards..I believe he bought more than 1.

I would hit walmart daily and spend stupid money on retail boxes trying to find one, like everyone else.

Never did pull one.

First the full card, then the cut outs including Topps Heritage. Prices on eBay were insane. Keith Olbermann was the buying force behind it.

I have been collecting Royals all my life and had bought the 2006 royals set off of eBay. I remember being disappointed when the Gordon wasn't included and tried chasing it down. The first one on eBay sold for 10,000 I believe and there were several articles out about it. It started to slow down, but for quite some time retail blasters (esp the "hot" ones from Wichita" were selling for 100+. In the KC area all of the retail was gone as well. After Gordon started to stink prices dropped dramatically and I ended up getting a full version for 150 about a year ago. I believe I heard there are about 100 in circulation.

Definately more than 100 in circulation.
