Default Question about 2020 Topps Heritage

I was wondering if anybody knows the print quantity of the french back variants.

For example, there are 50 of each white border card, but the french back cards seem more difficult to locate.

I've been unable to locate any information on the subject so anything you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

John

Bookmark this site for the future. Looks like the French text (OPC) backs may be around 1:20 if the same insert ratio holds for the other types of packs.

Since there are 50 white bordered cards, and one for all 500 cards in the set, seeded at a 1:67 ratio, you can calculate a reasonable guess as to the number of French text backs unless they are an exclusive to hobby.

67 x 500 x 50 = 1.675 million packs.
1,675,000 packs / 350 / 243 = approximately 20 of each OPC back. (Technically, Topps can't call them O-Pee-Chees because Upper Deck currently owns the copyright to OPC).

Thanks for the info and the link to that website, John! That's a lot of data!

Looks like my observation was correct, the french backs a quite a bit scarcer than the white border cards.

Prices are all over the board on these. You can find some of the commons for $2-5.

They're seeded 1 in every 243 packs in hobby. You can check the wrapper and see what your odds are if you bought retail packs.
