Default Jordan Prototype...please help

I recently purchased this Jordan card that states that it is a prototype/promo. I've done some research, but can't seem to find any info on it. I was wondering if anyone has any background history or info about its rarity. The seller said that he got it from his friend's uncle who worked for UD, but that's all the info I have. The 3D plastic image is of the Bulls logo. Thanks in advance for your help!

wow - the card literally says it is a prototype on the back, so unless it is a fake, it is probably worth a good amount...especially to insert collectors

however, I really have no clue, just speculating

It's a nice looking card and def. looked like something UD would put out back in the day ... it's pretty sweet and haven't seen anything like it.

I agree. This also makes me wonder about the future of Upper Deck. When stuff like this hits the market ( a lot in recent months), typically is an indicator that the organization is liquidating or the employees are making a quick profit before the company goes under.
