    Re: How would you spend $500 - $50 to the Winner!

    I would buy one really nice item instead of many smaller purchases. I make small purchases all the time and tend to talk myself out of the big purchases out of guilt for spending that much on myself. So... that being said... I would go big on this Mantle Upper Deck Authenticated #7 Autographed baseball!

    Enjoy!

    Re: How would you spend $500 - $50 to the Winner!

    First I'd start off by buying myself a nice Ted Williams auto. This is the first thing on my list if I ever come across any extra cash. In my opinion he's the greatest hitter to ever play.

    https://cgi.ebay.com/TED-WILLIAMS-SIGNED ... 1883wt_648

    One of these would go for ~140.

    Next I'd pickup a Hank Aaron auto. I need one, it would fill a huge hole in my Braves collection.

    https://cgi.ebay.com/HANK-AARON-AUTOGRAP ... _636wt_648

    One of these would run about ~75.

    Next I'd buy this 2001 Chipper Jones buyback. I have the Glavine and Maddux and it would look great next to them.

    https://cgi.ebay.com/2000-SP-Authentic-B ... _812wt_754

    It'd go for about 35.

    That's half the budget.

    Then I'd buy another Warren Spahn vintage auto. I could probably get this one for around 50.

    https://cgi.ebay.com/WARREN-SPAHN-PSA-DN ... _668wt_648

    That leaves $200.

    Next I'd buy this Smoltz lot. I could get it for $75.

    https://cgi.ebay.com/John-Smoltz-AUTO-PA ... _896wt_881

    Leaves $125.

    With that $125 I would buy the higest end Tommy Hanson 07 parallel I could get.

    https://cgi.ebay.com/07-BChrome-TOMMY-HA ... 1467wt_648

    Considering a blue hasn't sold for $50. I think I could get a gold for that.

    And thats what I'd buy with $500.

    This makes me sad because I don't have money for any of these cards. Damn.

    Cool contest!

    I have a soft spot for UD's Young Guns HG/Spectrum Exclusives, they're my favorite subset of all time, so if I had $500 I'd probably blow the whole thing on these:

    $171.0 Sergei Bobrovsky 07/10
    https://cgi.ebay.com/2010-11-UD-Serge...item4aa69939d0

    $78.00 Hall/Kadri/Subban Checklist 01/10
    https://cgi.ebay.com/2010-11-UD-Hall-...item19c14f08f3

    $41.00 Zach Hamill 01/10


    Sold for $35 & $55.00 previously Brandon Yip 10/10

    https://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...=STRK:MEWAX:IT

    And a hard signed auto of one my all time favorite players:
    $119.00 Trevor Linden Score Recollection Autograph /15

    https://cgi.ebay.com/2010-11-Score-Tr...item230c2a2c77
    Newest Personal Collection Addition:
    Highland Park Single Malt Scotch Whisky 18 Years


    Whisky Anyone?

    Nice topic, this is fun.

    $220-I would buy this Porcello 1/1, even though I haven't really gone after much 2010 stuff:
    [ebay:3i0e9bfs]300503108672[/ebay:3i0e9bfs]


    $280-And then I'd go after this 2008 Orange Ref Longoria Auto. Not his first year card, but I've always been a big fan of this design for whatever reason.

    $500 is a lot of money. I guess I could upgrade some of the chrome parallels or patches (particularly the Roddy White) above to make it all equal $500.
