Mantle Ring is the only one short printed so to speak.

Only 60 of them total.

All others are equally hard to get.

And by equally hard it's pretty easy. I got to 59 rings like it's nothing, but since Mantle is nearly impossible you're better off stopping after you hit the next prize below 60 rings, I think it's the box set.

1:5000 for Mantle. 1:1 for all others.

Just buy the ring off Ebay for $400-$500. It's cheaper.
