The anniversary party invitations in the cases were selling for $2500-$4500 and were the reason there was a mad rush to break these cases open because the owner of an invitation had to rsvp within a week before the event on 1/18. Apparently, based on what I'm reading on other threads $2500 was a bargain considering all the limited cards that were handed out to the attendees. Among other things, each guest received a "swag bag" which contained:

1 Trout auto /15
1 Bryant auto /15
1 Random Transcendent auto /52
1 Bryant Party Card /65
28 1/1 cards or low #d autos
65 Bryant cards /65 (1952-2016)
Topps bag, jacket, hat

At BO they are currently breaking some of the swag bags they brought back from the party at $62 per spot

Picked up a Reggie during the flash sale last week, as a type card.

Card arrived today. What an interesting product. For those who haven't handled one of these yet, here is the skinny:

The card has a 1/8" wide polished metal rim that frames the card front and back. It is heavy. The card weighs over an ounce by my scale. The cardboard part itself is just basic printed card stock. White stock on both sides. No coatings or specialty finishes other than the silver foil detailing that makes up the diamond framing the picture and the stamped number on the card front. The cardboard part is about as thick as a memorabilia card.

Usual haters and doubters. If you have the scratch it would be fun to play.
