If I was making a living at this (i.e. buying and selling cards for profit) I can see myself being pissed investing such a huge amount of money ($100) and not getting something that was worth $200.00, or even $50.00. I can also see that the stock market is a much better place to invest money.
buying 100 dollar boxes hoping for a hit is not an investment, even if the buyer thinks it is, it is a gamble..
