What to do???? - samsfury - 09-24-2012 04:38 PM

So bought the last box of Allen & Ginter's baseball cards the local shop had on the shelf. To my surprise i found (03/25 rip card). So my question, its a rare card in its self, keep it or rip it?

That's up to you. Are you a gambling man?! If you are, like myself, I would rip it.

I've never been lucky enough to have this problem Smile , but if it were me, I'd probably check the bay to see how much they were selling for; if they weren't going for as much as I'd want for it, I'd probably rip it just for the thrill. Who knows if you'll ever pull one again, after all.
I rarely if ever sell cards, and collect just for fun. The idea of a ripcard kind of feels like an extra dose of fun, IMO. I hope you'll let us know what you decide! Good luck, and congrats!

Traded my Brandon Phillips RIP for a Dodgers PC card worth about $120. I'm glad I did it, but still have that nagging feeling that maybe there was a red ink auto in it...!!

If money for cards is tight, the smart thing to do would be to sell it unripped. There's a better than even chance there's a run-of-the-mill EXT mini inside. That (unripped) card alone will more than pay for your box. JMO. -If you decide to rip, please post a pic of what you pull.
