the two sets that you can relate this to are 1995-96 finest mystery test refractors basketball and 1995-96 Collector's Choice Player's Club Platinum hockey. eventually beckett caught up with it, and the values tumbled this year. the test refractors set lost 3/4 it's value (the shaq went from 1000 to 250), and the hockey platinums lost 70% of their value (the yzerman went from 100 to 30)
as far as individual cards, the alex gordon comes to mind, though it isnt an exat equivalent. and i remember a football card from 2000 had a similar licensing issue, and at frst it was thought the number was very low, then it turned out there was more than expected
i think the mythology behind the montana card drives the sale price. and of course, you are obviously active in driving that mythology, with cause.
