(see edit below, I had a brain fart) Someone please check my math, because if the prizm parallels are not in retail, then I'm estimating that they are numbered to /16. But that's impossible. Please check my math/logic below, I'm not sure I'm doing it right. These numbers are based off my 9 case break.
First off a guess as to how many cases (hobby) were made. I opened 9 cases and pulled 23 total golds /10. (2.56 per case) There are 3900 total gold cards in the product. 3900 total gold cards divided by 2.56 per case = 1523.44 cases. Now for the prizm parallels. I pulled 363 prizm parallels in 9 cases. (40.3 per case) If there are 1523 cases, and you pull 40.3 per hobby case, that means there are a total number of 61,376.9 prizm parallels. Since we know the prizm parallel checklist (base + inserts, does not include the auto prizm's) is 3900, then we take 61,376.9 divided by 3900, and we arrive at 15.7. That means the prizm parallels are numbered (on average) to /16? That's impossible. Sure some prizm parallels might be harder to find than others, but an average of /16? No way. Either my math/logic is totally wrong. Or Panini left out a ton of prizm parallels that were meant to go into retail? I can't make sense of that 15.7 number. EDIT: stupid me. I need to divide 61,376.9 by 390! (not 3900) 3900 is the total number of gold's. We want the checklist for prizm parallels, which is 390. Yeah, so this makes more sense. 61,376.9 divided by 390 = 157. So, I'm estimating the prizm parallels are around /157. Last edited by alexlazarevich; 12102012 at 06:01 PM.

Based on my break, I'd say the insert prizm's are #'d to the same as the 1300 prizm's. I did not get any sense that the insert prizm's are SP'd. The reason you see them less is because there are only 90 insert cards that are prizm'd but there are 300 base cards that are prizm'd. That's the only difference I saw in my break. But again, I didn't didn't take exact number. I wish I had. But many cards are already sold and shipped so there's no way to go back and check.
