Completed Angels Team Set - 2000 Topps Gold Label

Beautiful cards, Super Premium cards they used to call these. Probably 5 bucks for a pack of 5 cards. But this is one of those sets whose numbering and parallels get too confusing for me.
I'm a simpleton.

Two players represent the Angels in this 100 card set.

Both players have 3 different cards, each in a different "Class".
You can tell the Class by the action picture in the background photo: Hitters hitting, hitting fielding, hitters running or pitchers in start of windup, pitchers in throwing motion, pitchers in follow through.
The player photo in the lower right remains the same.

I'm so glad the Angels didn't have any pitchers in this set.
I would have gone bonkers.

If that caused you to blow a gasket, Topps made it easy by printing the Class on the back underneath the team logo.
See it there in 4 font?

But the three backs are all the same.
So the ONLY difference is the background photo on the front.
And get this, No Class is more scarce than the other.
So a Class 3 isn't any harder to find than a Class 1.

So let me ask you this?
What the hell is the point of the 3 different Classes per player?

Another Topps conspiracy against team and set collectors that's what ;-)
