I've been enjoying unlocking cards on the Topps Diamond Giveaway website. Over the weekend, I input a few codes and unlocked 3 1971 Jeff Torborg cards. I have gotten a ton of trade offers for this card, more than for any of the other 1971 cards that I have in my account. When I did a search, I discovered that were over 1,100 copies of this card unlocked on this site. I've done some hunting around various forums, but couldn't come up with any discussions regarding this, so I'm hoping you can help.
My first question is "Why are there so many of this particular card when a typical unlocked number from the 1971 series is around 40-150?" Secondly, "Is there some unknown perk to having copies of this particular card in your account such as free shipping of other cards like you get with a pack redemption from the dig board?"
Thanks for your assistance.

In the How to use the price guide section in Beckett baseball under multipliers I spotted an error. In the example a card priced 20-50 cents is used with the multiplier being 20-40X high value. This would make the parallel version valued at 10-20$, however, in beckett it states the parallel version is valued 5-10$. Just something i've noticed for a while and never got a response in regards to my inquiries. Thanks and continue the great work.
