i have actually seen 3-4 base minis and 2 sp minis (301-350) come out of most boxes. if this is the case, then you would be only getting 36-48 base minis per case, taking more like 7-8 cases to make a set and therefore 1 Strasburg in every 7-8 cases which seems more likely.

just my observations from my boxes and boxes from my LCS.

I would agree with this. Before the product even came out I guessed 1:3 cases based on the idea that you'd get about 10 regular non-sp minis per box. But based on what people opening it are reporting, I'd say its more like 5 base non-sp minis at best. So that would up the odds to 1:6 cases... and again, this assumes the Strasburg mini is NOT short printed.

Well it's not hard to figure out with the pack odds. Does anyone have a scan of the pack of a pack or just the odds?

Sorry to drum up an old thread, but I just read through it again and I'm really impressed with how accurate some of the predictions from last summer are. This thread predicted there were probably only about 100 of these made and a year later, that seems about right. Also, there was another thread related to this one that said the Strasburg mini would settle in at $150-$300. That prediction was made before he got hurt and the reality of it is around $100-200 right now, but I think once he's pitching again, that number seems right on also.
If you have to explain why it's a 1/1, then it's NOT a 1/1.

Looking for Andre Dawson Serial numbered cards that are his jersey number - either #8 or #10. So looking for cards like 8/8 or 08/99 or 10/250.

A much smaller sample, but I opened three cases and didn't get a Strasburg mini.

Harper will NOT be in A&G. He is not anywhere close to being called up to the Nationals. Therefore, he is a prospect and NOT a rookie and will not be in A&G.

20? .025 not, 99.9755 pulling
B&B's 25? .003% of not pulling.
Just letting you know, thats not a rough estimate. Thats no more an estimate than picking a random # out of a hat.
