Default What does "high numbers" mean?

i was looking through the boxes for sale on blowout and saw these

Low numbered has a shorter print run than high numbered. Low numbered is rarer.

I think...

Isn't it more like. Series 1 and series 2 type thing? 89 upper deck was like that. Low # box was 1-700? And high was like 1-850? Idk if those are the right numbers, but I'm sure you get the point.

That could be it, too.

well, i thought i'd sound stupid asking. i guess i feel a bit better now. you'd think if low numbers meant it had the lower print run cards that the box would be much more expensive. i think craiggy is correct.

Aren't high numbers traditionally the rarer cards?

Yes, in the distant past, when sets were released in multiple series, the later series were usually issued in lower print runs. High numbers referred to the cards with higher card numbers that were released in the later series.
