Yes. In Geist no less.
It's simply not in the same class as Diesel/Gamble - not in a better/worse sense, but in a purpose sense. Diesel and Gamble (sounds like a shady law office) are resource gaining cards. Peddler does that, but only in bits in pieces - a card, a credit, an install. Peddlers main value are in the instant install, hidden information, and selection aspects.
Gamble is a good early impact card that falls off a bit, Diesel draws cards as opposed to selection, which is a big deal. It also comes with no whiff chance - peddler will hit events sometimes, which reduces it's selection value.
I'm not saying the card is bad, mind you, it's just not the automatic all the time card everyone seems to think it is.
