Yes...what a clusterfuck. Here's general information - http://www.pjcollectors.com/detail.asp?id=1750
Initially they were used as promo items when the album came out. The band gave them to friends, radio stations to have contests, etc. Recently PJ put the remainder of what they had on their website for Fan Club members to buy. Usually they set up their store to limit members to 1 each of unique or rare items, but with this one they didn't so people took advantage of it and ordered lots of copies. Story goes that some of the people that ordered multiples had their orders canceled while others didn't. I am hearing all this 2nd, 3rd person. All I know is, a bunch are now on eBay. In the past copies have gone in the $1000 range when the first showed, not sure what the market is now with the flood of them. Wish I had one, not gonna pay $250 for one.
