They had print sheets for C/U/R cards. The number indicates how often a card was placed on the print sheet. So, an R2 card does twice appear on the Rares print sheet, a C1 is once on the common sheet etc.
So true! Thanks, I did the calculations again. Sorry folks!
[Calculations have been corrected on 27Sept2020] There's 36 boosters in a display. Each booster in MEAS has 2 rare cards. -> 72 rare cards per display. There are 9 R1 on the Rares print sheet. A print sheet has 121 cells. The mean number of R1's I'd expect to draw out of the display would therefore ...

Randy Asplund-Faith did 3 more commissions from ICE, most likely planned as , ents.jpg Ents of Fangorn ------------------ volcanic.jpg Lost in Dark Domains ---...
Going further off-topic with the Nazgul. Donato Giancola clearly took Liz' representation as a reference for his illustration of the Ringwraith. Apart from that he seemed to be inspired also by a renowned work of Rembrandt
The case of Caves of Ulund <-> Iron Deeps is striking. Great find! Never realised myself before! I don't know of any other recycling of illustrations. There are a few other examples for artists "citing" a colleague's work, though. The Golodhros <-> Minas Morgul example is a nice one. Another is Nazg...
