If this bothers you, you are in the wrong hobby. Take a step back and look at the card industry today. I would venture to say there are few true collectors and more people out for profit. Everything Topps, Panini, UD, Leaf and others do is gear their products towards striking gold. Although I understand your frustration, it's the nature of the beast.
