Default Which would you rather have?

I'm really curious about this question. Lets forget about making $ for a moment and just think as a collector. If you had your choice between a jumbo box of 2013 Topps S1 or this (link) which would you choose. I picked his particular card because it's close to matching the price of the box. Try to also forget about the grading company, just a accept the card for what it is.

1956 Topps 135 Mickey Mantle RP DP RC Graded EX 5 Super RARE | eBay

Me, I'd take the card.

ummmm I'd take the box. The card is listed as a reprint on the grading label.

-I would take the box.

I don't take fake Mantles for value. Gifts, sure, but not for value.

lobo_hacker, who thinks every time one of this style of thread comes up the OP is the owner of the card trying to promote the sale, mainly because he's a paranoid sort
