Price guide discrepancy and Contest Pimpage!

Hey blogosphere!  First up is some publicity for This Card is Cool's newest contest.  Looks fun, go check it out!  Oh, and so is buckeyestatecards!  Here's that link.  Ok, I could use some help from the all knowledgeable and wise among you!  Check out the card below.  As far as I can tell, it is a 2002 Fleer Fall Classics 'Rival Factions' Insert (the curvy banner underneath the word Fleer says 'Fall Classics').  The plastic it came in had a price tag of $40, and when I look it up, it looks like it books for $25.  But the book also says that it should be #'d /50.  As you can see, mine has no serial number.  Anybody know what I have?  Anyone want it?  I don't really care its 'value', I just want to know if it is hard to find or some junk insert that nobody cares about.

From an aesthetic standpoint, the font on the back of the card that says "Rival Factions" doesn't fit the card whatsoever. How can you use this goofy font with two old school players? Just jumped out to me as odd.

Looks like you got the retail version of that card which is not serial numbered.

So are the Retail Rival Factions not listed in the price guides now? Sheesh, looking through one of those things is like reading the encyclopedia!

I was going to offer up one of my typically snarkey comments until I re-read your post asking for the wise amongst us, not the wise-assed!!
Nice looking card, never really thought about Yogi but Munson is definately a keeper in my book.
