    Don't know how short-printed these are but one is at $560 with 2 1/2 days left in the auction. And another is listed at $2,000 obo.

    Not sure I could buy that if I collected the guy, especially at those prices. Is that a nickname of his or how does a polar bear tie into him anyway? Sorry, to each their own, but this is about as corny as it gets.

    Brings back memories for some, I'm sure, of the Skip Schumaker Squirrel card from several years back. That was equally dumb. Wasn't that also some sort of SP? Anyone know, has that card held any of it's original value?

    At least the other SSSPs, and the Schumaker squirrel are baseball related...

    Besides his nickname, itís literally just a polar bear on a glacier...they could have done better...

    If you look close at the polar bear card. That glacier is melting from global warming.

    It would have been cool if they did an action shot of him and a polar bear head where the Mets logo is or something like that, I like the idea but not the execution of the card.
