I agree. The "hobby" has become people busting boxes and cases just to hit the high value card and resell it, along with the other cards, immediately. There's nothing wrong with selling, but busting boxes just to sell is not what it's all about for most of us.

Memorabilia cards don't have value anymore, because the market was flooded with thousands upon thousands of relics of each rookie every year. The same thing is happening with autos now.

Using only the cards with stated print runs shows that there are over 13,000 cards at this point that Andrew Luck autographed. Adding in the others I would say there are probably 1000+ more, and there are still over a dozen products to be released.
