    Great deal! I had it on watch and completely fell asleep at the wheel. Particularly bitter since I finally decided on a collection focus - 90's low # insert parallels. No clue why it went so low, if I recall had a reasonable end time. If you are interested in a swap, I've got plenty of low # '90's that no longer fit my PC. Congrats!

    For comparison sake, I pack pulled this one sometime last year:

    And the verdict is in! The Kapler is indeed the foil parallel - #'d 13/30. These things NEVER show up.

    Wait, did you not know it was the #'d/30 version when you bought it?

    Correct. It was listed as the base insert. The hue on the text caught my attention. The "ghost" stamp on the back was illegible on the scan. Rolled the dice.

    Wouldn't this be the fault of Comc for listing it wrong? I guess the seller should of reported it as being listed wrong. Probably didn't know what they had.

    It's both their faults, COMC for being sloppy and not noticing and the seller for not being diligent checking the information while putting a sale price on their item. When I sent in 300 items to COMC they got 3 or 4 of them wrong, it happens. I caught them and sent in a change request and it was quickly corrected. I've picked up a couple of mis-listed cards for great prices. Kind of like going to a card show and finding a hidden gem in the quarter box.

    [MENTION=3737]carrsallstars[/MENTION], great pickup! I'm sure you won't regret what you paid.

    Totally agree with Gwynn545, this set looks great in hand and the photography is tremendous. Even scanning through the few cards on ebay right now, I'd say the photos are 99% better than what Topps has been using the past few years. I also loved the photo work on the old Upper Deck Collector's Choice cards.
