2011 RIP card

RE: 2011 RIP card
I had an Ortiz rip card /100, I think. Inside was a sabathia sp. All told, the value of the 2 was about the same as the unripped Ortiz. Plus it was kind of cool to open it. I say go for it.

RE: 2011 RIP card
Value schmalue. Rip the darn thing. I don't know how anyone's curiosity doesn't get the best of them. I'd rip that card immediately with no second thought to how much I could flip it for on Ebay.

But then, my philosophy for my cards is that I am a collector, not a profiteer.

I have interest in the Rangers at all. If I can make enough money to pay for the box I just got, then I can buy another box and hopefully get something that I do want to keep. I wouldnt really call it profiteering.

RE: 2011 RIP card
<-------- Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain. I'm very much a purist when it comes to collecting. This whole secondary market business with Ebay, while nice because I've found a few cards on there to add to my collection, has destroyed a lot of what I found fun about collecting as a kid. I still find my own brand of fun, but trying to collect a set nowadays is next to impossible because of people who buy up gazillions of boxes just for "hits" and trash the rest. It jacks up prices, and makes it hard to find other people who don't want to trade my few autographed and relic cards for insert cards or base.

I'd still rip it. Inherently, I'd be way more curious about what the mini is inside the rip card than the potential profit I could make to buy another box if I sold the thing on Ebay. I wasn't intending to be harsh toward you, just throwing out my two cents.

RE: 2011 RIP card
In my house, it would have already been ripped.
I also have sold ripped cards (the outer card) as they are serial #ed and collectible.
True, you will get a lot less ripped, but I ripped on and got a 1/1 art work card from 2009..never know

Most likely this card is a EXT inside though

I didnt take it personally at all. And believe me, I am really curious as to what could be inside. But, I love to break boxes and selling it unripped gets me another opportunity to do that.

I have a '11 Lineage Posey gu mini, plus a Chrome Belt auto that I'd be willing to trade you.

RE: 2011 RIP card
If you rip it and get a EXT mini, you can still sell the mini and the ripped card for around the same value as the unripped card
