It sucks that they reduce variety of colors, if not total amount, but whether it's good or not will depend entirely on the print run. With a not unreasonable print it still could be OK.

Small consolation, but non-auto Gold IS on the Hobby sell sheet for both base and inserts. It's apparently just the Gold autos that are retail exclusive.

If the Ferrell autos are your main motivation it really wasn't worth a shot even at $83/box. They will be at least 1:80 boxes, or worse if the print run is increased at all.

No, that was my point. Purple barely counts as color - it's obviously not going to replace the value of Gold/Sepia etc. even if the amount of color per case is the same.

It's possible there will be about the same amount of color per case this year, but only because of addition of Purple (assume /250 or more) which barely counts.
