Each box will include 24 packs with six cards in each pack, and one hit per box. Each base set will contain 72 cards with two inserts: Queen of the Pinups (a 16-card set) and Calendar Girl (12-card set on a calendar design).

Is there any market at all for this?
Yes. She’s an iconic figure and many collect her stuff. There are lots of stuff in the non-sports world that is big that many sports collectors don’t think about.
Wow, an “article” with a comment on it…stellar.
And the answer is no, there is no market for this.
From Olds: 30,327 comments and counting round these parts these days …
There is an absolutely huge market for anything and EVERYTHING Bettie Page! Her autographs can range from $300-1,000 on any given day. In a lot of ways she’s more popular than Marilyn Monroe.
