9 pounds of cabbage will feed about 25 or so.

Even assuming 1/3 pound per person (in this case you can actually probably figure 1/4 pound of each meat so 1/2 pound total per person) you may need more meat. I'd do about 70 pound (raw) of pork and maybe 50-60 pounds of beef (it should shrink less unless you are using brisket).

#10 cans of beans server about 22-25 each, depending on the brand.

If you are not providing paper goods and drinks, I'd charge about $8 per pound for the finished pork and $9 for the beef - a lot depends on your costs...around here beef is expensive. Or you could charge $5 per person based on the 200 count.
