Looking for PC advice

Looking for PC advice
So, I'm arriving at a bit of a collecting dilemma- the three main guys I collect- Verlander, Cabrera, and Stanton- are becoming a bit out of my range to collect at the level I want to be at. Like most, my resources are limited and it's becoming clear that these 3 aren't going to become any easier to collect in the near future. My question is this, if you had to "cut bait" on one, which would it be?

By "cut bait" I mean let one guy go and focus on the other two. Obviously, various scenarios could play out, and could end up being counterproductive. (Dropping one to focus on two others that may continue being increasingly expensive). -Also, I'm not necessarily looking to drop anyone. If anything, I may just let one of my PCs go dormant for a while. (Maybe that's stupid too though).

In July, I started trying to collect a new Tigers prospect (Avisail Garcia), but since his call-up, his stuff has been hard to come by and the prices are wildly inflated. Likewise with Nick Castellanos. Such is the nature of the beast, I suppose. I'm not a bandwagon guy, per se, but I'm not looking to start super collecting Quintin Berry or Jamie Caroll either. I'm a huge baseball fan and I like collecting guys I follow, and look forward to following for years to come. Also, by way of background, I don't collect to make money. In fact, I've never sold a card before. So, I'm not looking at any of this from a true profit/loss standpoint. More from a "collecting value" perspective.

So, I'd be curious to hear your thoughts if you've been in a similar dilemma and what you decided to do. Ever give up on a PC (too soon/perfect time)?
-Also, as you can see by my sig, I collect Cameron Maybin too. He's not really in this conversation though because Topps doesn't produce a lot of Maybin cards these days.

For what it's worth, I have about 450 Verlander cards (BV $5500); 550 Cabrera cards (BV $2500); 221 Stanton cards ($1900). Also, I have 80 Trout cards (BV $2800).

Always looking for Verlander, Cabrera, Maybin, Mike Stanton (marlins), and Avisail Garcia.
