    For a product like this it's pretty easy to figure out the print run for a card, you look at how many super script /25 there is per case, from there you can calculate how much hobby packs there is.

    Let me run the math on that and get back to you in a few minutes. I am starting to like this investigation!

    Update:

    here is a head-scratcher.... a Hobby Box with 2x #/249 AND a #/25. I am taking the tinfoil hat off. I think my original assumption that all autographs are available in all pack-out streams was incorrect.

    If there are two /249 parallels per box, that will get you your answer.
    I was able to come up with an exact hobby print run for OPC based on the 2x /100 Blacks per box. (different thread from a while ago) Retail is a lot harder to estimate.

    These threads are always fun.

    UD often does the "we let the market decide scarcity & availability" when it comes to the non-numbered autographs. For a product like MVP that isn't heavily broken compared to others, at least not at the intensity & ferocity at the hobby level, this can often result in some of these rarer autographs becoming "white whales" for people who collect those players.

    As a case in point, getting the rookie redemptions for 2018-19 shouldn't be all that difficult right? The odds on them are as follows:
    Odds - 1:400 Hobby/ePack, 1:4,000 Retail/Blaster, 1:960 Fat Pack.

    That 1:400 is much more readily accessible than even a Group F auto from this year's listings, right? Well, just for fun, go to eBay and look up Jesperi Kotkaniemi MVP - there isn't a single copy of his MVP RC up for sale right now. I have one:



    But I've only seen a very, very small handful out there.

    The thing with MVP is that you gotta move quick if you see a card you really want for the collection. Some of those Super Scripts or autos will become impossible to find once we get into the 2019-20 season in earnest, because nobody's gonna be opening MVP soon. There's also all the high-end stuff from 18-19 to finish off.

    Bottom line? If you see it once, don't sleep on it because your opportunities in the future will be very limited.

    I pulled two /249 and a /25 in my first box. Two /249 in my second and one /249 and a brannstrom auto in my third if that helps.
