LOVELAND, Colo. – Pieces of the infamous flying saucer that starred in Colorado's balloon boy hoax are now available as trading cards.
Michael Fruitman, the current owner of the balloon, struck a deal with New York-based sports and entertainment card company Topps to use a segment of the Mylar saucer for individual trading cards.

According to the Loveland Reporter-Herald, the card is included in the recently released 2012 Topps Baseball Allen & Ginter Relics Set.
The silver, UFO-like helium balloon gripped the country's attention in 2009 when the family said their 6-year-old son had floated away in it.
The parents were charged when it was discovered the boy was never onboard and they were ordered to pay $36,000 in restitution.
