I think that's a false comparison. People specifically get the Visa Black card to make people think they're carrying a Cent. No one expects a Hyundai to be Benz. (although they're getting closer with the new Genesis...)

I think a better example would bethis:

(Hint: It's not a 308.)

To each his own. Both cards apparently serve a purpose, otherwise they wouldn't exist.

However, a comparison is like comparing apples and oranges. One is a charge card. The other is a credit card. People who are "impressed" know the difference.
Retired, and in the process of retiring cards!
EQ = 850 EX=849 TU = 850 as of 07/2017

Kind of like people who put AMG badges on their base model C300...the only people who would notice, or care are people who would realize that its fake haha.
