I definitely see your point. I realize now that the number of parallels was a bad argument to make for why I think one set has more appeal than another.

I hope Optic and Select both do well, honestly. Both look poised to be much better than last year. I'll spare everybody the essay I'm tempted to write backing up my opinions and just leave it there....

Does it matter that they are unnumbered when there are between 25-50 of them? White sparkle prizms do fine without serials.

I feel like it's common knowledge that PSA doesn't discount grades for off-centering. It can be up to 70-30 and be a 10. 70-30 means there is more than twice as much border on one side than the other.

Co-Rookie of the Year

It's been awhile, but what are the chances of a co-ROTY this year? I think it makes sense because of the 2nd year rookie thing (Simmons).

I think it's just because more people are betting on the Sixers. Embiid is talking more #@#@#@#@ to Drummond today (first he can't play D, now he can't shoot). It will be a fun one to watch :)!

This is what I'm going for. The point of the math is just to counter arguments that "it doesn't matter" or that the difference is completely negligible. I like hearing the variety of opinions. Thanks

5500 3 point attempts. Career % would go from .329 to .332. Pretty negligible for Kobe, agreed... but he didn't take too many heaves.

Hail Mary plays are 1 of 20-50 attempts in a game. And they happen much less often than heaves in basketball, which can occur at the end of each quarter.
