There are rumored to be only 10 of these rookie cards to have ever been produced. I would not bet on those numbers but I would agree that these cards are very hard to find do to a limited print run. These cards are also very hard to find in good condition due to the black borders that exist. These borders accentuate flaws in corners and display chipping on many of the borders. Expect to pay close to $1000 for this rare rookie card. This is also the most expensive Brett Favre rookie card to exist.
