Default 2013 Topps Tier One--Willie Mays Auto

First time buying Tier One, think I did pretty well. Torn about what to do with the Mays auto though, would love it for my PC but am worried about the length of time waiting for the redemption. What do you guys thnk?

Jackie Robinson Bat /99
Willie Mays Copper Auto Redemption /25

Take a look at other rose colored metal ink cards. I think a LOT of the rose auto cards were super weak (auto quality wise). After you take a look then decide if you want to sell or keep.

example:

Also FYI, the copper rose autos are VERY hit or miss. Some are barely visible, others are gorgeous. Willie signs very strong with the pen/marker pushing into the surface very hard to the point of leaving a pressed trail, so I THINK he'd be alright with the ink... Just wanted to give you a heads up.

Very nice break. Personally, I'd sell the Mays as I'm not a fan of the Rose Inks. Sell the redemption and pick up another Mays (live) with a strong auto for the PC. If moving the Robinson, I'm also interested. Thanks!

Best of luck! If it looks nice, it'll be tremendous.
