Man, I started this set a long time ago. Basically I spent a year and a half on this thing and it finally came down to the Evan Longoria. It arrived yesterday.
To put this set into a bit of perspective. 120 cards per set. These fall 1 per box. 16 boxes per case. If you didn't get 1 double, it would take just under 7 cases to complete the set. The Masterpieces Football Patch set I put together is 60 cards. 2 per case. 30 cases to complete the set without getting a double.
Somehow this set was more difficult. Just a bunch more cards to get. As far as the number of sets. These cards are not numbered. You get roughly 7 blue /125, 5 brown /100 and 2 green /75 in a case and as I said 16 of these per case. Which puts these at approximately 285 sets. Maybe a few more, maybe a few less. I'm not sure how ofte these are pulled out of retail in relation to the other parallels to see if those ratios hold.
