Default wow. Massive trade offer. Would you do this?

I have a Topps Black Diamond Die Cut of Hank Aaron (traded a regular Mantle die cut for it) and have been offered SIX regular Diamond Die Cuts for it:

Adam Wainwright, Jose Bautista, Tim Lincecum, Troy Tulowitzski, Jarred Weaver & Carlos Gonzalez.

Would you do this?

Even though I'd LOVE the Lincecum & Tulo cards, I'm leaning "no"...simply because it's a limited-numbered edition of 60... and probably the best card after Mantle....

I don't know, that's kinda tough. The following prices are averages current as of now:

Linceum - $40
Weaver - $15
Tulo - $15
Bautista - $15
Cargo - $15
Wainwright - $20

$120 total eBay SV

Aaron - $40 avg. (REGULAR die cut, not the black)

Not a lot of black die cuts have actually sold on eBay, so IDK.

I usually don't trade down for multiple cards, unless the SV is crazy higher and I don't really like the larger card I own.

But in this case, I think Aaron is a keeper.

Thanks so much for your opinions... and the price listing... I guess, since I'm more in this for the "fun" of it, I'm definitely leaning towards keeping the Aaron... (plus free shipping on the cards!)... bottom line is that there will only be 60... and that's kind of cool on the face of it... Cheers!

Yeah keep the Aaron, I get some big time offers for my Carpenter Black Diamond and Koufax regular diamonds, but they always tend to be a reject. Quality over quantity.
