    The unopened pack was probably worth more than that card. ;)

    .... That card is worth $2400!?!... Holy Cow! .... Just think of the thousands of dollars worth of toys and collectibles we probably all have gone through when we were children. .... I remember having that card. Put it in my spokes to make myself Evel Kenievel. Lol!

    at most it is probable worth $100 that $2400 is best case scenerio to me its worth more hanging on my wall. Its only worth what some one is willing to pay for it.

    The only reason any of those toys and cards are worth anything now is because we all destroyed them when we were children, thus making them rare and hard to find in good condition. I would sell folks tons of Prequel Era Star Wars figures who were thinking they were going to put their kids through college with them. Unfortunately everyone else was collecting them also, and they were all keeping them in the package, so now they're worth nothing.

    The "Luke Skywalker" on that card seemed strange to me so I looked it up (not at home right now to compare it to mine) and sure enough it's different than the ones I usually see.

    Is yours Canadian? I see there's some French on the wrapper.

    What kind of question is that? It's Star Wars related. It tasted amazing to be sure!
