With the invention of low serial numbers and a myriad of colors it makes PC attempts extremely difficult and only left to those with a significant bankroll.
In the case of the Kyrie Irving Gold /10, I believe Intrigue created 5 versions of that card....so if you wanted to collect all the Kyrie Irving golds you would need to get five of them even at $20 each that is $100 for a modern card with no game used or autograph....multiply that by the number of products being produced....that is a steep hill.
