  1. Some clarification please. I thought cards 323 Deandre Washington and 338 Trevor Davis were the base cards, not the variations. Can you please clarify which ones are the actual SP?

      1. I think you missed my point. In the article for the two cards I pointed out, the card numbers are for the vertical non-variation cards, not the variation as noted. Just wanted verification on which one is the actual SP, the card number as noted or the way it is noted?

        1. Got you now. Turns out there was a typo on the card numbers in the blog post. The actual SPs for Washington and Davis are the horizontal variations and are card numbers #363 and #378, respectively. The blog post has been corrected.

  2. On the redemption card, it says rookie ticket/rookie ticket variation. How do I know which one it is? The vertical or horizontal?

  3. Cardboard Connection has a spreadsheet stating Ezekiel Elliott RPS #310 (base auto) has only a print run /25!? If this is true, not only is this card SSP but it would be one of the most if not, the most expensive version of this card minus obviously 1/1’s. I was able to hit one in a case break and I was thinking of selling it but I’m not so sure now.
