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
I love CAKE....
