A few weeks back I did a post asking you the reader which card would you rather have in your collection. You can read about it HERE in case you missed it.
As stated I have/had a BGS gem mint card of Cubs prospect Kris Bryant. It was my only autograph of the young player but I was not emotionally attached to it as he is not a Dodger and I also think his market is over inflated right now. Don't get me wrong, I think he will have a very good career but not one that warrants current card prices. I want(ed) an autograph of his in my collection but I decided that I would sell that card and pick up another one of his in the off season when the prices come down a tad. If I was to sell it though I had to get a great replacement and I basically had two options. A BGS gem mint Bryce Harper Allen Ginter autograph or this BGS gem mint Sandy Koufax autograph.
I was already leaning towards the Koufax card before I asked everyone which way they would go if they were in my situation but I was still a tad conflicted as I still wanted to add another Bryce autograph to my collection. So do I go with a Dodger Hall of Fame member or do I go with an up and coming star? The overwhelming response was to go with Koufax with no one really on the Bryce side. So with that I went from 1 Bryant, 1 Koufax and 1 Harper autograph in my collection to zero Bryants, still 1 Harper but now 2 BGS gem mint Koufaxs to call my own.
I think I made the right decision and this card does look even better in person than it did on the computer screen. I want to thank everyone that gave me their opinion as I value it whether I agree with it or not.
Of course if you have read this blog long enough you know I always attempt to get the most bang for my buck. Just because I got one great card doesn't mean I couldn't get more right? More on that tomorrow.
