They have risen due to supply and demand. Griffey is popular among collectors and people trying to collect the entire set of UD are also after them.

SPs are just short prints. They can be variation like the Griffeys in this case, they can be a high number series, etc. Basically any card that is produced in lesser quantities than others is an SP. Some like the Griffeys are tough to pull, others like the Goodwin Champion SPs are one every couple of packs. Sp covers a wide range.

Only UD knows how many are produced since they are not serial #'d.

It appears there are several variations of card 855. There is a regular card 855a and a sp variation for each season Griffey has played in the majors that book for $40 each. I guess this will be lots of fun for Griffey collectors.
