So...I was crunching some numbers to get a better idea of the ever-increasing odds of my sealed Ginter X case holding the magical #83 Cryptocurrency 1/1 silver mini. (I'm equally fond of the /5 red minis, TBH.)

First, I searched all the current and previous eBay ads with the keywords "2018 Ginter Silver Mini" in the title. I listed a total of exactly 101 FOUND silver minis, including my own Walker Beuhler RC. Unfortunately, my search would only go back as far as August 31. That means I'm missing all previous sales for the earliest 3+ weeks, so I'm quite sure that several more silver minis have been discovered than my 101-card tally. Plus, since my search was limited to those exact words in the title only, I would have easily missed any listings with slightly different titles such as "2018 Ginter Silver 1/1" etc.

Regardless, according to Blowout forums and based on the pack odds of silver minis (1:107), approximately 173 Ginter X cases were produced. The odds say there should be exactly 2 silver minis per case. (My personal experience agrees with these odds.)

I'm considering buying a Worthpoint subscription in order to search for all the pre-August 31 eBay listings. I'm quite sure that the bulk of sales happened in the first few weeks, and I'm very interested in calculating the odds of my last Ginter X case holding the 1/1 silver mini. (I may eventually calculate the /5 mini red odds too, which are stated to be 1:22 packs.)

I'll keep you guys posted... Wink

Regards,
Chris

EDIT: According to the official pack odds, a case should hold an average of 2 silver mini 1/1 cards and 10 red mini /5 cards (as well as 12 Brooklyn, NNO, or Glow-in-the-Dark mini cards — one per box).

I think the cases hold 12 boxes of 18 packs each. I could be wrong tho.

There might be a small percentage of 1/1 silver's and red's that get pulled and kept.  I doubt that would be the case with #83.

UPDATE: Tonight's research on Blowout Forums adds another 61 silver mini cards to my list of pulled 2018 Ginter X silver mini cards. My running total is now 162 silver mini cards that have been discovered. (So far, none are the elusive #83 Cryptocurrency.) Many more baseball forums and auction sites to search...

Chris

Thanks, Mrstacy.

And to all of you who collect the Ginter X cards, if you wouldn't mind and if it's not too much trouble, I would greatly appreciate PMs to let me know which silver mini cards that you may have in your current collection. (I'll understand if you'd rather keep secret your ownership of a few select silver mini cards, such as the #83 Cryptocurrency. However, please let me know which cards you feel comfortable disclosing to me.)

Thank you, everyone. We'll track down that elusive #83 Cryptocurrency silver mini card soon enough!

Regards,
Chris

Actually, my case was bought on eBay from a third-party with considerable mark-up, so it's not a 5x return. Sad

UPDATE: Wowser! The last Ginter X box just sold on eBay for $499 + shipping! Shocked

Man, those boxes are tiny, but if a $6k card is still not pulled, i guess it is possible.

There is the whole key, I see them continuing to go up unless someone puts a bunch for sale on ebay which I highly doubt or the sought after rare ones are pulled.
