You've solved the riddle of why these online cards sell anything at all. The idea that it's only available for a 24-hour or 7-day window makes some people's amygdala tingle with a "fear of missing out".
I'd be fine with daily and weekly GPK cards if the art was good, and I would sometimes pay the high prices to get the best ones.
If John Pound was doing these Trump cards the cards wouldn't suck, and the daily cards would revitalize the hobby. In other words, it's not so much the subject matter and the frequency, or even the prices, it's that the art insults collectors, and it's even gotten to the flippers and whoever else was naive enough to buy these all along.
Making these a weekly thing doesn't mean s**t until the art is better. And, if the themes are to remain boring ass politics then the art needs to be BETTER than better, it has to be good.
