    Suppose the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York, has approached Active-Cardz with a special order. The Hall of Fame wishes to purchase 50,000 base-ball card packs for a special promotional campaign and offers $0.37 per pack, a total of $18,500. Active-Cardz's total production cost is $0.57 per pack, as follows:

    Variable costs:

    Direct Materials $0.14
    Direct Labor 0.07
    Variable Overhead 0.11
    Fixed Overhead 0.25
    Total Cost $0.57

    Active-Cardz has enough excess capacity to handle the special order.

    Requirements:

    1. Prepare an incremental analysis to determine whether Active-Cardz should accept the special sales order.

    2. Now assume that the Hall of Fame wants special hologram baseball cards. Active-Cardz will spend $5,800 to develop this hologram, which will be useless after the special order is completed. Should Active-Cardz accept the special order under these circumstances?

    Please see attached for the full question set.
