Default Same Card, same company, extra 150 bux?

I dont get this... I was thinking of buying the Saphire 4870 1GB for $235 CA here:
Newegg.ca - SAPPHIRE 100259-1GL Radeon HD 4870 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

BUT I just came across the same card, for an extra $150...
Newegg.ca - SAPPHIRE 100243-1GL Radeon HD 4870 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

Does anyone know why?

If you see that card at newegg.com it is deactivated and without a price. I also would like to know why the huge difference, especially when a 4890 is $315ca.

The second one is no longer sold. It has it's original price for when it was sold. No reason to update the price of an inactive item.
