The man has been compared to Albert Pujols and doesn't strike out. I feel he deserves to have his current value, and if he we're SP'ed, you'd see $200 autos ...
He would absolutely be more expensive if he were tiered. However, the fact that he's the most expensive card in the set despite having a significantly higher print run than other top prospects in the set demonstrates that talent/hype fuel the prices much more than print run. As others pointed out above, the top guys will command top dollar regardless of print run.
