Can someone give me the low-down on Iberico ham?

I've wanted to try this for quite some time but won't be getting back out to Europe for at least another six months. I recently searched and found a tapas restaurant here (we're in New Mexico) that sells it for about $40 an ounce, which is pretty damn pricey. Does anyone know of a place such as Whole Foods or similar that sells it in the states? My wife mentioned that it might be illegal/against the USDA to sell it here, but then how can I explain the restaurant which carries it?

Thanks for any info. If I can't find it somewhere for a better price I will likely bite the bullet and order it at the Spanish place, unless you guys advise against shelling out that much cash for it.
