I know that many of the high end to mid range sets often are all serial numbered or have tons of short prints. I think that's another reason why these sets are going to be worth having. They're in limited quantity and they're hard to put together. They're not like Heritage or Allen and Ginter which are set collector favorites. The price point as well as the difficulty of set completion drives set builders away from these products. Not to mention that these products are not focused at set builder as I previously stated. They are focused on the collectors looking for the hits. Imagine if you could get an entire base set of Topps Sterling. Or National Treasures football. Even something like 2007 Sweet Spot Classic. All are limited in their production and would be hard to complete, but having a full set of those cards would be very rare. And worth holding on to. It might be worthwhile to become a set builder for the future even if you're looking for the hits right now.
