I just went to BMW cards and saw a SGC 96 1955 Topps Ernie Banks went for 10,000

thats great.. and good for the guy who can afford it.. but let me just give you my opinion. If you plan to showcase your cards on a wall in a special "sports room"...like i do... if the card is centered and looks good from 2 ft away ... or from 3 ft away... if it looks good grade a 5-7 with no creases and the corners a just a slight bit touched.. isnt that the better deal??

i just got a 55 banks raw.. its centered... the cornes look mint about 2 ft away and just touched up close.... wasnt the 75 dollars a better deal leaving me in the case of that guy...9925 dollars to spend on the rest of the SET in 5-7 condition???

IM NOT SAYING CONDITION IS NOT IMPORTANT... but does it really matter ALL TOO MUCH IN THE WHOLE SCHEME OF VINTAGE... and mind you.. I MEAN VINTAGE.. not modern
