When doing the tiers I believe the price tiers was to give value for you're money in respect to the risk you're taking. You pay about $120 for Man Utd in the chance of hitting that $2000 card of Ronaldo, whereas you pay $95 for Villa where you will get more cards yes but value wise in most cases you are better off buying singles, the Reason villa is $95 is because you will get more than 3 hits of them not because they are worth good money.

In the first case everyone was saying looks like Villa was the best deal deal, but Man utd, Arsenal, Man City etc were all better than Villa. Villa's rarest card in the set went for $200 and there are 5 of them. There are 5 Ronaldo 1/1's which are valued at $2000, 10 times the value of Villa.

We buy packs taking the gamble on something special and the tier pricing is there to not only take in the likelihood of the amount of cards each spot will get but also what you could potentially get out of you're spot.

Also collation is never perfect, if all 60 hits were for example Sunderland then the gamble for whoever went for sunderland paid off and it's just hard luck on everyone else. If Southampton have 0 auto's/ jerseys then you will not get 3 hits of them, it won't happen. 3 Southampton 1/1's in a case just won't happen. So if no one will take that spot it's best to just split the $43 19 ways (only a little over $2 extra per spot) and just share the base of them
