Default Upper Deck 2011 Thor Retail Sketch Question

Hey guys I was wondering if anyone has had any experiences breaking this product. I'm curious if the retail version of that (5 cards per pack, 16 packs per gravity fed box, 20 boxes per case) has sketch cards at all? I looked on NSLists but they gave a different ratio of sketches in packs (1:40 where as BO says 1:48) and they did not differentiate between retail and hobby so am I to assume that retail offers the same rate of sketch cards as hobby? What about printing plates? Or does it mean they were not in retail packs?

The sell sheet shows the retail box on the last page but does not declare the ratios.

Note: Just to preemptively acknowledge that I know this is a product that leaves much to be desired and I should stay away from it. Your concern for my well being is much appreciated but I have done the research and am still interested in sketches from a collecting standpoint.

There are no sketches and no plates in Thor Retail packs. Just memorabilia cards and autographs though autos are a very tough pull.

Thank you very much-o Mr. Roboto!

You have prevented me from hulking out and smashing things.

Yeah, no sketches. And memorabilia cards were something like 1:48, auto cards 1:2500. I actually did buy a retail case, since you can get a case really cheap, and all of the breaks I had seen had one of the SP Portman memorabilia cards (which in the hobby case I broke, I didn't get any; I got at least 2 of all of the other ones, but none of the F2). So if you just like opening packs, it's not a bad break. Of course, not much chance at a big hit (about 1 in 8 cases for an autograph), but you should break even on the memorabilia cards.

I busted a box that I got as my free gift from a D&A order. I didn't even hit the one base card that I didn't pull in my lone hobby box break. It was free and I was still disappointed!
