If the Super was sent as a gift I assume the Rep meant "since they had so many UNSIGNED base", and these were actually signed recently, not in 2013, and not intentionally held back from 2013 BDPP by...

I don't know if their license allows them to put prospects in non-prospect products like Stadium or Tek. In any case it's a line they haven't crossed yet.

It won't sound stupid to ask why certain categories are being excluded. I assume they get that question dozens of times a day. Hopefully it might make a difference.

On a side note, a swatch of ebay sales containing roughly 20% of the numbered Bryants had exactly 100 2013's, which would indicate the number of those made is somewhere around 500.

Yeah I don't think ripping ROI ultimately factors into wax demand vs. supply nearly as much as appeal to lottery ticket mentality does. What's the average ROI break on 2009 BDPP at $3500/case?
