How/why does PSA designate a card as being "optional" for inclusion in a Registry set?

The designation of "optional" precludes the card from being considered in the Registry set and is not used for any GPA purposes.

The attached card is not allowed in the David Ortiz Master set, nor the David Ortiz Master Topps set...however, it is allowed and in fact is a part of the David Ortiz Super Set composition. It is important to know that several other "relic" cards are in the Master Topps and Master Ortiz set compositions. What makes this one so different?

If the card, as you can see, is a Topps card, how could it be disallowed for the Topps Master set??

    Set composites are locked for a period of time around registry awards season. Any new additions during that timeframe are listed as optional, and get officially added to the composite after the awards deadline (usually within a week).

    Tks...perfect explanation.

    Looks like composite add requests after May 1st will not be factored in for current year awards, so requests after that should be added as optional until at least May 31st. They're supposed to automatically migrate to a required slot, but I've seen instances where they don't and a quick message to the set registry folks gets it sorted out pretty quickly.
