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.

http://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.

http://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.

http://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.

http://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.

http://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.

http://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
http://cgi.ebay.com/2010-11-UD-Serg...t=US_Hockey_Trading_Cards&hash=item4aa69939d0

$78.00 Hall/Kadri/Subban Checklist 01/10
http://cgi.ebay.com/2010-11-UD-Hall...t=US_Hockey_Trading_Cards&hash=item19c14f08f3

$41.00 Zach Hamill 01/10


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

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=390270690818&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT

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

I'm running out of ideas. lol
$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.

1959 Topps PSA 8 (OC) Bob Gibson RC - $164 Not worried if it is OC, to get a high grade Gibson RC would make my year.
1956 Topps Mickey Mantle PSA 4 - $297 Huge fan of graded Mantle stuff, just can't afford. Even as a PSA 4, still looks great to me.
1959 Topps Sandy Koufax VG - $26 Might see a little repetition here, but I am a big fan of the 59 Topps set.
09/2010 National Treasures Auto/Patch David Lee 25/25 $15 I'd find an extra $2 laying around to cover the difference on the last card. Huge fan of Lee and this card just looks amazing. Would have been nice to have added it to my collection :)

PSA 8 (OC) is not high grade though. its more like a PSA 5
