I think you are an intelligent person, but you seem to be jumping to some conclusions with this product. You are assumming everything on the bad side and making no assumptions for the positives. Maybe you are just too familiar with how Topps does business...lol. I am making the same assumptions with Bowman Chrome, so its all good.
Good point, and that hasn't been discussed yet. This market has definitely grown each year since 2010. I see it at card shows, I see it on eBay, I see it on forums. For a hobby that almost died, it has really come screaming back.
