    I did some work on the Ray Knight Scar Variations — take a look here:

    Has anyone ever worked out the distribution of the copyright and denotes variations? I just did a quick scan of eBay and found all these different types of cases (sorted by UPC):

    wax case (20 boxes/720 packs (36@)) UPC 10700-82500

    rack case (72 packs) UPC 10700-82502

    wax display case (2 displays/432 packs (216@)) UPC 10700-82504

    wax case (10 boxes/360 packs (36@)) UPC 10700-82507

    blister case (48 packs) flat red lettered box UPC 10700-82509-20

    blister case (48 packs) tall blue lettered box UPC 10700-82510

    cello case (12 boxes/288 packs (24@)) UPC 10700-82520

    cello case (12 boxes/288 packs (24@)) flat box UPC 10700-82521

    cello case (6 shelf extenders/300 packs (50@)) UPC 10700-82522

    factory set case (15 sets) UPC 10700-82005 (not sure of this is for the white box or the colorful box)

    That’s a lot of different ways to pull cards. I’m curious if there are variations specific to wax vs blister vs cello vs rack.
