Achtung Baby CD - Cardboard Case

When I bought Achtung Baby when it was first released, my copy came in a cardboard case. Does anyone know how long it was available in the cardboard? It seems to be common since I have been able to obtain a replacement copy (my son ripped my cover last winter) and a couple more copies for a few collector friends without a lot of effort.

I just received a copy today, and there is a shamrock instead of an X over Adam's privates. I have heard of a version with nothing hiding Adam, but I never heard of a shamrock! Does anyone know about this?

Thanks for your help!

Not sure about the cardboard sleeve-I would like to have one though! But I'm pretty sure that there were three versions of the pic of adam. I myself have the shamrock version also.

I also have the shamrock version.

I have a copy of AB in the jewel case and in the cardboard sleeve...I found it at a used CD store for a decent price (considering the cardboard was damaged and worn a bit). I don't know any useful info about the cardboard sleeve version though.

If you check ebay for "Achtung Baby" you should be able to get one for around $5.00 including shipping. If it doesn't specify the cardboard or plastic cover, you can tell by looking at the photo because it won't have the plastic edge on the right. I e-mailed one seller and asked if it was cardboard by the photo and it was.

Does anyone know what percentage of the CD's have the shamrock?

I just found out a little bit more about the cardboard case. It is unknown when they stopped releasing them and they are not real rare.

There is also mention of the 3 versions of Adam, but nothing regarding the rarity of each so I'm going to ask.

I also have the one with the shamrock. I did find the one with the cardboard sleeve, but as far as I can remember Adam's willy had an X printed on it. It might be another version. I didn't buy it though.
