2011 Limited Edition Cubs

Since I don't buy much wax, I haven't been too involved with the Million Card Giveaway last season or this year's Diamond Giveaway. But I did see that one of the Diamond Giveaway prizes is a Limited Edition Factory Set. The cards are the same 660 as the regular set, but they are specially marked in two different ways.

I saw a Cubs team set of these pop up, and the price was only a few bucks, so I splurged. Since I already had the base, gold, and platinum versions, I figured I might as well have the Limited Edition, too.

I won't bore you with all 23 cards.

I'll just show this one, of the National League's 2011 hits leader, Starlin Castro ( I know that sounds kind of lame, but its one of the only positive things to come out of the season!).

In the upper left hand corner you can see the Diamond Anniversary logo instead of the basic Topps logo on the regular cards.

And then above the team name, they've added "Factory Set Limited Edition."

Does anyone have any idea how "Limited" the set is? I didn't see anything in the official rules that list the number of prizes awarded.
