    1. Some cards don't sell on eBay when they are priced at 99c. Other are listed at $40 (though don't seem to sell very often). It certainly depends on the featured players 'star' rating.

  2. Hi Alan, I’m curious to know how these cards were distributed. Were they sold in packs? Or given away or something else? Can’t find much info abt these cards on the internet except for your page. Thanks

    1. Hi Karl,

      I think, but I don't know for sure, that they were only available online. I know they weren't available in packets or given away with any products.

    1. Sorry, no. I haven't seen that information anywhere.

  4. If the 101 total cards is accurate, I can fill in the blanks as #48 Christian Klien, 50 Rafael Nadal, 51 Anastasia Myskina, 53 Daniela Hantuchova, 59 Mike Hart, 62 Steven Jackson and 64 Abby Wambach. This would leave #52 and #70 as unpublished. I've been attempting to reasonably piece this set together for the last 2 years and will confirm that I've never seen either number listed for sale.
    My current needs are reds #1 Rooney, 2 Klitschko, 17 Frei, 18 Kuranyi, 20 Sneijder, 22 Ronaldo, 27 Fangzhou, 28 Adriano, 37 Rossi, 41 Tabuse, 42 Taurasi, 46 Tevez, 50 Nadal, 54 Federer, 55 Kuznetsova, 67 Ronaldinho, 71 Bogut, 72 Brown, 73 Smith, 78 Miyazato and 79 Gordon. Blues needed are 23 Manning, 31 Oden, 34 Rivers, 42 Taurasi, 45 Paul, 46 Tevez, 49 Brule, 54 Federer and 71 Bogut. I am open to purchase or trade for any.
    A few questionable things are that the 500 print run on the 5 gold cards does not seem accurate, these particular cards are too frequently available for sale. I have yet to see a few of the others, however. Another is the inclusion of Adrian Peterson and Mike Hart, who were only college freshman in 2004.

    1. Hi Scott,

      Thanks for your help, I've updated the checklist. I found your notes about the date interesting, I can't say for certain when they were first available. Where they sit in my database seems to indicate they were added around 2004 or 2005 but I didn't started to include a date when an item is added to my database until 2016. I have no idea about the validity of the 500 print run for the Gold cards, as they are all printed as "1/500" and not individually numbered I suppose they could print as many as wanted.
