    Which one would you pick for a redemptino replacement?

    Your current redemption:

    2014 Five Star Baseball Five Star Auto Rainbow Parallel of Willie Mays FSA-WMA - $300 Beckett

    Topps is offering:

    2015 Bowman Chrome Draft Pick Autograph #BCAAB Andrew Benintendi -$300 Beckett

    or

    2016 Bowman Chrome Prospect Autographs Green Refractors #CPATM Trey Mancini #92/99 - $200 Beckett
    and
    2015 Bowman Chrome Draft Draft Pick Autographs #BCAIH Ian Happ - $100.00 Beckett.


    I'm leaning towards the Benintendi..just want to see what everyone else would do..

    His cards will spike in value when he passes. Most players do. Big big difference if a HoFer passes and a rookie has a severe injury.

    If I had to pick a or b I would pick a. But it doesn't hurt to ask for more.

    C'mon, those are both crap offers compared to that low #d Mays auto you should have.

    Don't pay any attention to the Beckett values when it comes to BC prospect autos (the values fluctuate all the time and are never close to what Beckett lists them at).

    At the moment that Benintendi auto is selling for roughly $90-$130

    Ian Happ base autos are going for about $60-$70 & the Mancini goes for about the same price as the Benintendi currently sells for ($100-$140).

    So if money is the only thing that matters and you plan to *immediately* flip your replacements you'd get slightly more $$$ for the Mancini/Happ. But then again, as I mentioned earlier, the value of prospects (especially those in the midst of a rookie season) can change quickly in the midst of a season. That Benintendi auto was selling in the $150-$180 range just a couple weeks ago (earlier this season they were topping $200) & could easily reach that price again. Ian Happ autos were hanging around $100 at one point too.

    If looking to invest, the Benintendi auto has the highest ceiling long term (it could be a $300-$400 card in a year or two if he breaks out as a .300+/30 HR player as Betts did) & in the immediate future because if he does something big in the postseason it could easily exceed $200 again this year.

    Honestly, you deserve both the Benintendi & Happ autos as replacement for a low #d Willie Mays on-card auto (which are much scarcer than the thousands of BC base autos floating around) so you should ask about that first. If not, I'm leaning slightly more towards the Benintendi auto.

    Mays is a top 5 player of all-time. I wouldn't be very happy to get a prospect in return who could flounder and be out of the league in a few years. I'd try to get another top HOF guy, Aaron, Koufax, etc.

    100% agree but I'm not a prospect guy. I'd insist on another all time great player.

    Death 2 'em all. This is just another example of why I hate them. The ridiculous replacement offers are always worth less than the card you should have gotten and they still go by beckett prices (what are we still living in the stone ages?) to gauge the value.

    I am a prospect guy but even I would prefer an all-time great HOF auto as a replacement for an auto of Willie Mays. The prospect market is too volatile and it would be a shame to end up with a Delmon Young/Stephen Drew/etc. a few years down the line when you could of had a low #'d Willie Mays auto that will always maintain it's value.

    The question I ponder is what happens when Beckett finally stops publishing a price guide.
    Looking for 2011 Topps Marquee Museum autographs, rare Frank Thomases and Grady Sizemores I don't have

    I guess Topps will have to learn to follow the market and go by recent (last 3 months or so) completed e-bay sales, as they should be doing already.

    I'm amazed people still go by Beckett value but as long as people keep buying them, I don't see Beckett discontinuing their price guides.

    May autograph probably costs them $150 or more. 1 or 2 rookie autographs are probably $5-$10 total.

    I know that their cost is not the ultimate question, but this is an embarrassment.

    Have you asked if they have any top tier HOF autograph or auto/relics available as replacement instead?
