New to the site. Love what I'm reading and really like the MB. I'm starting to get back into the collecting and I've decided to stick with HOF rookie cards. With that being said, I need some advice. Do you think I should go for quality or quanity.......For example, I've already bought about $500 worth of PSA 6-8's. I'm starting to think maybe I should slow down and get more high quality. A couple of examples. For $500 I could buy a Brett 9 or a Carew and Killebrew 7. I could also go and get lets say 7 or 8 good solid cards Yount 7 etc. What do you think I should do? The names are just examples, but I think you see what I mean. Looking for a nice solid collection that will hold its value. Thanks for your help!

From what I have read on boards is the highest condition you can afford the better. Simply because when you get up in the higher grades there is less population and will retain or increase in value.

Welcome to the boards!

I agree 100% with Bobby, go with quality over quantity. Save up your money and buy a sharp looking 8-9 instead of 3-4 of those PSA 6-7's.

And be sure to share your pick up scans with us!

Quality for sure.

I collect sets, so I will sometimes sacrifice quality for quantity. But for HOF RC's get the best you can afford.

Good Luck

Honestly, buy the CARD and not the Flip(piece of paper with the grade on it)....I like to buy low grade Mantles 1-5...that have the eye appeal of a 6-8 but have some small flaw like a back crease or pinhole.

Good Luck and Welcome to the Board
