There seem to be around 500 (inserted in Inception), so not rare but still SP compared to most BDPP autos.

they've held up a lot better than I expected. I thought they'd be $350 already, surprised they are still close to $500.

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?
