Please correct me if I am mistaken.
Not sure how many retail boxes were made? My understanding there is not going to be any retail with Invasion.
5000 was just a number. Cut that in half and a loaded sketch pack is still 1 in 10,000 (you better be darn lucky). I don't know if loaded packs are in Hobby only though so if they are then that is cool as I was factoring in retail plus hobby.
Regarding Heritage, my understanding and experience is that many cases had just 1 gold per case and if you add in retail that was in plenty of chain stores like Target etc. I didn't think 5000 cases was a stretch. If that is true that there is not going to be any retail with Invasion then that would certainly impact things. That is the first I have heard of no retail though.
