quick question - kbfullerr - 11-20-2012 12:58 AM

i bought some A and G today and busted it just wondering they say that 301-350 is SPs but how many of those cards are actually produced? is there any way to find out. Is it like 5000 each?

i think it's much more than 500

There is a way to figure it out if they give the odds for getting the SPs and also the odds of getting a serial numbered card. Then it just becomes a quick math equation to figure it out.
For example:
If odds of getting an SP are 1:10, and there are 50 different SP cards in the set,
and odds of getting a card serial numbered to 25 are 1:250, and there are 100 cards in that set,
then the math would be
X*50/(1/10) = 25*100/(1/250)
Where X is the quantity of each of the 50 SP cards. Now solving for X, yields the following result:
X = 1250

Was that algebra there? Math is everywhere.

And that's bad because math isn't exactly my strong point. Really cool. They are every other pack in Ginter if I remember right.
