looking for any insight on this set as I look to try and collect it. A lot of confusion on the sp side of the house. After a 1/3 listed, but not everyone agrees on this. thx

There was a short thread a couple months ago, with some of the math and a collector's attempts to recreate a sheet linked into it: https://www.net54baseball.com/showthread.php?t=287035

I strongly suspect the SP's are all just yet another made up hobby myth. They don't align with what is known about the sheet, and the number of them does not make mathematical sense. All 100 cards were printed the same, or there is a row of double prints, I think. Having to pay extra for fantasy SP's is definitely slowing completion of my set, but it's a fun one

Thx, I've noticed that several cards are highly available. #5 #7 #60 #75 #81 for a few. Looks like about 20 are very available.
So my initial thought was 2 110 card sheets with a different group of 10 double printed on each. Does this sound reasonable?

Short Prints for years have been thought to be in abundance within this set.

I will advise you that for sure, not everything is as it seems to be.

Good luck collecting this fine set. It is a remarkable set.
