Someone posted a readable scan of the card in an ebay auction. It's already at $17.50 -- too rich for my blood.
Wow... and I thought my $20 bid was over the top, but seeing as I'm in New Zealand chances are I'll never be able to get hold of one other than through eBay!
I often go to a convention and buy items that just came out, or get the promotional items. I then sell them on eBay to pay for the convention.
In college I paid my friends to stand in line to buy some Magic: The Gathering Legend packs and bought a computer with the profits. The last few years I made over $1,000 (after all expenses).
When Mutants and Masterminds 2nd edition came out I bought four (4) copies for ~$30 each, sold two (2) for $60 as buy it now, and then cried as they were selling for ~$160. I ended up selling two (2) for around the $160 price. People would rather pay a $130 premium for a game one month early, than wait for it. The same is true for Fantasy Flight board games. And, well, a lot of things.
Check out True Dungeon on eBay (around December and July/August is when the high priced items usually hit). True Dungeon is like a Haunted House with gaming rules (truedungeon.com). The game is played once per year at GenCon. One of the tokens used in the game sells for ~$450 (Horne of Plenty - you get more treasure, and they discontinued it), and many others sell for ~$100-$150+. True Dungeon is REALLY fun, but the amount some tokens go for is quite interesting. Especially seeing how it is played only at GenCon.

I made a thing for you all:spreadsheets.google.com/ccc?hl=en&key=tL...
I haven't picked up a copy yet, but did Famin in Far-Go come with cards?
