When I was in college, I got about $3,300 one spring that was left over from my grant. That was totally free money. So, I blew most of it on sports cards. Of course, that was around 2003, but all that stuff is nearly worthless now. If I were smart back then, I would've spent a little on cards and put the rest toward my living expense when I graduated.
Buy you a nice box of product, something you really like and can live with buying. I like the look of the Heritage or A&G. Can't go wrong with either of those.
Then set the rest aside and just wait for Harper's stuff to come down. It's going to happen because the hype won't last forever.
Hope this helps
