As I said, you are either going to get extremely lucky, or pay an assload.If you want to spend $5000 to make 50,000g, that's your choice.But when you place an item in the store for $10, and remove the limitations of supply (those TCG cards are limited, and the majority of them are out of print. The older they get, the more expensive they get) you get an item which is simply substituting one for another.Each time you buy a card, you remove one from circulation unless you don't use it. Eventually all of those cards will be used up unless someone is hoarding them somewhere. I don't see a problem with people selling TCG items for two reasons. 1. The items were originally BOP, and were made BOE simply to stop scamming. 2. It allows people to obtain items for gold which they may not necessarily find otherwise.There is a good chance unless you were scouring every shop that sells cards, that you would never come across a Spectral Tiger still in the package because the set is out of print, and because of the card being included in that set, most people ransacked that set. If you don't want to spend $800 on a card on eBay, you can find someone on the AH selling one for 200,000g. I am fine with this. It's an extremely limited item, and it gets the seller what they want (a massive amount of gold) and the buyer what they want (the mount.)The TCG cards are random. Unless you purchase that card specifically, you may not get one. When it comes down to an item which is purchaseable from Blizzard, in an unlimited amount, and is cheap, and can be converted directly into gold, you are indirectly buying gold.Spending $800 over and over to get gold is not feasible. No one but idiots and extremely rich people would do it. Spending $10 over and over again almost anyone can do."Hey, an item we license can be found, if you are lucky, and put on the AH and sold." and "Hey, an item you can buy from us and put on the AH and sell" are two different things.
