Default Is there any method to all these random base cards numbering?

In products like Inception and Supreme, it seems like the base cards have these crazy weird numberings and parallels. Cards are /462, /40, /96... I'm confused ha.

Can anyone break this numbering down and explain each parallel?

I've heard that a lot of them are numbered after the fact based on any errors in production and having to throw some away.

Like the ones to /96 were probably /99 or /100 and they had to get rid of a few due to printing errors.

This is the first year in recent memory that I've seen such weird numbering across the board in both Topps and Panini. Most everything used to be numbered to something ending in 0, 5 or 9

I don't really care about it but it is something I noticed.

I think maybe because the company knows it's going to produce X number of boxes and there's X number of players in certain sets. They make the cards fit the total box production.

Pretty sure that someone just draws a number out of a hat and says... this set is # to 1612. Doubt that Panini or Topps really has a clue.

Only one's I'm pretty sure on, are the Topps Football ones. I know the Gold variant is numbered to the current year and the Black ones are numbered to how many years Topps has been in business.

Other than those, not really sure. There's some odd numbering systems in use by Panini for most of their cards.
