Does Kathie Lee Gifford smell like bubble gum?

Tomorrow Donruss will be issuing a Kathie Lee Gifford trading card as part of its Americana Celebrity Cuts set.

Ms. Gifford, who recently returned to morning TV on the "Today" show, has autographed 200 cards randomly inserted into the product.

The company has issued rookie trading cards for other great Americans, including William Shatner, Quentin Tarantino and Buzz Aldrin.

What does this have to do with sports?

Kathie Lee is married to Frank, of course. And I have some baseball cards in my closet from the early 1970s. That's about it.

I just read the bottom of the news release, and it says the suggested retail price per pack for this series, which includes six cards (two autograph or memorabilia cards, three commons or parallels and one insert) is . . . $150.

Um. That's a typo, right?

(UPDATE: I'm told it's not a typo.)
