On a recent visit to my LCS, I had a chance to chat with a buddy of mine who pulled this out of 2012 Topps Five Star Baseball:
"Man, the thing was numbered out of 49. I told [the owner] to sell it quick before the value dropped on it, almost made the price of my box back."
Maybe there's just a part of my brain that doesn't understand that logic. It did with my Pete Rose auto, mind you; but that was after I heard about this latest set before it got released.
I will probably never be able to open a box of Five Star, the cost/benefit analysis just doesn't work out to me all that well, and I do have way too many other interests.
All that being said, do you (the reader) keep or sell something like this? It'd be a tough call for me, I will admit, and would most likely be determined by my financial situation at the time. I'd probably sell it to pick up a Cardinals auto I didn't have (or a Hornsby relic!), and then use the rest to get something me and son could enjoy.
But that's just me, what about you?
