i have a copy of this with a dropcard labeled 206 of 325... is there an edition of 325?

I have 2 copies of this. On the download cards one says 979 out of 1250 (this one i preordered from best buy)
The second one I recently purchased off ebay and its card says 544 of 1000. Does anyone know anything about this? Does it really mean anything at all?
Ok I contacted dropcards on facebook and they told me that the first pressing was limited to 1250 and the second pressing is limited to 1000. I do not know if there is a way to tell if its first or second pressing without opening the record. If anyone knows please update this. I hope my research helps out

Clearly NextLevelShit® what DJ Hi-Tek does on his PC Computer™ here on Ten$ion. ¥o-Landi Vi$$er and Ninja are hard rapping as ever in afrikaans and english and they're not going to mince matters of any kind. ZEF style at it's best!
A perfect start in a hopefully fine music year 2012 and a generous 5/5.

Probably one of the coolest and innovative new releases in 2012 pop music so far. A strong start for 2012 and coming from the strange origin of South Africa. These oddball crew really do let their theatrics and energy flow through into their music and rhymes, effortlessly pulling of their absurd roles they portray. The CD is a fun ride if you can stomach their cock and ball humor as their are some truly witty moments if you can make out what they're saying through their thick accents and slang ridden speech. I give it a solid 5/5, not only for originality but the depth of the satire in the lyrics, and the excellent and original beats by DJ Hi-Tek. A+
