a precious metal gem in hockey is not the same as in basketball...don't make that mistake.
Just because a few schmucks in asia are idiotic about 90's Jordan inserts, PMGs, credentials, super raves etc.
doesn't mean hockey will follow. i.e check the price of 90's Jordan parallel inserts compared to Gretzkys.

so why do people pay so much money for cards that has neither game used or auto on them? i dont get it.

speculators do. Check basketball - Asian speculators have been all over Jordan, Kobe, Carter 90's parallels and the releaseof 2012 retro featuring the same issues that sparked more speculation. This will not happened for hockey...perhaps a few random sales before the speculators realize their mistake.
Same kind of speculation with hockey Cup rookies, premier ice patch autos /99...collectors don't buy those cards - they just move from one speculator to the next.

No, because as I've said, not all cards with the same print run are created equally. Doesn't matter about the added attributes or whether they're the same colour, a card from Set A can have a wildly different value than a card from Set B, even if it's the same player with the same print run. Consider - would you rather have a 2007-08 Upper Deck High Gloss Jonathan Toews YG /10 or a 2007-08 Upper Deck Ice Fresh Threads Patches Black Parallel #FTJT Jonathan Toews /10?
Yes the Ice Fresh Threads Patch has a (photoshoot) patch in it that probably looks nice given it's the Hawks and all, and a cool glossy surface, but I would venture that many collectors would prefer to have the plain ole YG HG.
