That is the gold parallel version, and it is numbered to the rookie's jersey number - all those versions in this year's cup are hand-numbered for the first time.... and I think it sucks and detracts from the overall presentation.

Also, it's goofy cause Canadians like the base version better than a parallel numbered version that is 5 times rarer - I still can't figure it out. It's gotta be the set collectors or something like that, ie , there are not enough player collectors for him.
It's because the true RC is the base version. Like a Stamkos /99 will always go more then his Gold /91. But if the Gold version is low numbered (like Burmistrov) then it'll go for more.
