Not for awhile, he was a common in the 2nd most bought pack. he was 2-3k before cr's announcement was getting close. up to maybe 4k. then 26k after announcement but between retirement. now down to 17k. if that's not "big money" to you already then I'd say he won't be "big money" for sometime.
The pirana's clan has been out for a good while now.. I remember they were new when I started UR.
I think that was a year and a half ago.. But I cant be sure...
Now smokey was a common card, meaning there are A LOT of copies floating around!
I expect his price to get (at lowest) 15K.. But in a years time he should be popping up near Vickie CR! ^.^
