I thought about a Ruth or Gehrig but it would be a better investment in my T-206 collection. I hadnt gotten a single card this year. It was an unplanned break but I hope to start buying next January and get 2-3 each month. Just need 86 more to complete that set

RE: A Investment Question
@uvaspina very nice post sir. Seems like a no brainer doesn't it. Like just do it and wait 6-8yrs and sell them in mini blocks,etc.

I will say this... I noticed on Memory Lane that a Willie Mays RC sold back in 04 or 05 for like $7600

just a few months ago the same one sold for more than twice that. Both were grade 7 I do believe and neither one showed (OC)

Anyone can correct me if I am wrong but that is my story and sticking to it

ps... I have a handful of the mini black A&G Puig's (which I paid 20-30) ea/ for them. not sure if I did good here or jumped the gun

babe ruth is actually a very common auto. he signed everything, every time, everywhere. and most people kept them.

I was referring to being released by card companies.

Also, if a card isn't graded then please do not list it as "mint" to bump the trade value. I trade nrmt-mt unless graded. Sorry

RE: A Investment Question
And most all are numbered less than 10. By comparison to other players and how many autos of each are released...his isn't very common.

RE: A Investment Question
Dont know about individual cards, however there are some nice pre-war memorabilia that continues to hold its value, this would be my route.
