There’s been buzz created in Taiwan with the uncovering the of the product’s first Golden Ticket, currently on eBay with a Buy It Now price just south of $30,000. Here in the states, the product’s 14-karat gold Solid Gold insert cards have rivaled the frenzy created by their predecessors in Playoff Contenders Football and Hockey.

The first confirmed sale we’ve tracked of a Solid Gold card, that of Tim Duncan, closed at an impressive $1,500. A handful of others have surfaced on the secondary market, including biggies LeBron James and John Wall as well as LaMarcus AldridgeStephen Curry and David Robinson pulled in, of all places, Paris, France.
