Haven't gotten my packs yet but I have a question - is there one Ludlow back card per pack? Or are there sometimes more?

1 ludlow "attacky-back" per pack, along with 5 base cards.  The first 9 base card backs make up a puzzle (a new piece of art), card 10 has a checklist back, card 11 has a pic of the puzzle art, and the last 4 have coupon backs.  All in all, very well done.  But, once again, if you put your stickers in pages, you'll have to put 1-9 in the wrong numerical in order to have the puzzle line up on the reverse of the page.  I don't understand - sometimes they seem to plan for it, and sometimes they don't.   :-\

Regarding collation - there does not appear to have been any attempt in that area.  This is not like some other times where there were 2 or 3 groups that repeated; these packs looked completely random.  And, with the buying window long closed, I expect there to be a LOT of trading here!!!

All these cards are all done a digital press which means they could have easily made complete sets available unlike if it had been printed in a large offset press- like they do with bigger set collections. Topps really makes it tough to deal with if they do these shenanigans.

I just got mine today in CA.  Cool art.  Weird collation, though.

I would call the "collation" nonexistent.

Not sure how, but I ended up getting 2 luds in 1 pack & none in another (unless a card slipped out while I was opening them or something).

If we order three packs, are we guaranteed a full basic set of the 15? I forgot how that worked last time.

All of them 😆

Yeah, would be good to know a number, as that will (should) determine sell out point

It did not work at all last time. Seemed like random packing of the 5 base cards.
