Thanks Scott. That is good to know.

Has anyone figured out how these cards were packed out? Rack packs, wax packs, vending?

From what I've read and heard from others, they were distributed via wax packs in the northeast and possibly midwest and California. Early on I heard of the christmas factory set, but that sounds like it was debunked.

Of course, I never pulled one, and all of the 'sightings' from other collectors add to the mystery of how exactly these were sent out. I have two, one being a poor old BGS 3 that I got a couple of years ago with a nice crease line. I've always thought about the kid who must have pulled it, put it in their pocket, and later on realized what they (or someone else) had.

If anyone actually pulled, or directly knows of someone who pulled one of these ghost, please post your story.
