EMT decks were available to consumers. But like a Ferrari, the decks were out of range for most people.

True. But that's not my point. My point is that they awarded a deck that is no better than a deck made 56 years ago. How does this award thing work? Is a deck awarded the product of 2009 better than the product of 1999 and so on? Or is no improvement needed in order to win?
