What to do with $200?

Exclamation What to do with $200?
What is the best thing to do with almost $200?:

- Buy hot packs off of auctions sites
- Buy a box (I might want to do a group break, as I am just pulling for a Bryce right now Smile )
- Buy AU's right off of auction sites
- Save the money for college (really would rather spend it on cards)


- I feel like everytime I make a purchase with larges amounts of money that I am not using it wisely, although this happens every single time I spend. Help a brother out!

Collecting 2010-11 Panini Certified, 2010 T-206 AU's and GU's, Vintage, and all Montreal Canadiens! Primarily looking for PK Subban and Carey Price.

$100 towards College. $100 on the nicest card you can find on the bay.

RE: What to do with $200?
Def. stay away from hot packs! They're criminal. Someone opens it, replaces a nice patch with a 1-clr JSY and you've wasted $7-$8. That's just me, though.

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

I like the 50/50 thing. That's probably the smartest thing to do...

Convert it to Chinese money and hold on to it for the future.
