Why such a seemingly random number of cards? Is there a significance to it in Japanese?

Each store had 821 cards, and 821 symbolize August 21 (Ritsu's birthday).

All this craziness, and for the two least popular main characters at that. Just wait for the insanity when it's birthday time for Mio, Yui, and Azusa.

Ah, now I get it, guess I wasn't expecting something so obvious. Did the other birthdays do the same thing? Seems like earlier birthdays would mean fewer cards if they did.
