I would keep it up, but buy them when you see them for a decent price.. don't be buying bkb cards using your credit card.. you'll end up paying way more than expected after all that interest adds up.. I spent $5K on one of my credit cards a few years ago, buying cases... & singles I needed. I will never put that much on a credit card again, especially cardboard... credit cards are meant for use during emergencies...
If you can get some cheap BGS 8's, then I would pick those up & then replace them when you can... that way you can still complete a graded set.. & resell them down the road.. keep track how much you spent for them, so you can make sure you don't lose money on them... I've done that with a few of my cards... I started keeping track how much I spent for each of my Jordan Farmar cards...
If you have a photobucket, show off your collection & welcome to Beckett!!

I was going after a full BGS 8.5 set and decided to sell off commons and change out to raw because it was getting expensive...at 9.5??? DAMN.

It is expensive but it's really not that bad if you compare it to the modern jersey/auto/numbered/logoman etc etc the can be multiple thousands per card even though they're not their rookie cards. I don't think I can/should get into the modern cards.
