    I think your odds you listed for the other inserts and signatures and patch cards are the retail numbers not hobby.

    Awesome looking set. Can’t wait to get to work on it.

    I just wish they would get rid of inserts all together. I can live with the SP’s, but at 6 cards a pack it’s tough enough to put together a set without the aggravation of a gimmicky insert or two taking up space.
