Default New to prospecting. Decent buy?

Ive been grabbing some small auto lots and grabbed this one. Seemed like a good price, but not 100% sure

when prospecting, stick to Bowman Chrome. EEE loses value rather quickly.

Cheaper unlicensed product with more autos for the money, but the prices rise and fall just as chrome does. It may seem like they are worth considerably less, but prices rising/falling is about equall to the percentage of what the autos would do in chrome.

None of those guys are really "premire prospects" (excluding Correa), but ya never know.

Back in 89 I traded my 70's Nolan ryan stuff (72,75,76,78) for 3 1988 score Greg Jefferies rookies (who was THE hot prospect) so gonna stick with the lower end prospects for now as the reward factor is much greater if 1-2 of them make an impact.

Not only does EEE lose value but also USA stuff loses value so I mean... not a terrible buy though.

I wouldnt buy a single card until I considered myself no longer "New to Prospecting" Though I pretty much always make money now, my first year or 2(06/07) I lost a lot not only learning the way to research players DAILY, but the timing of when to buy, sell...ect. Just advice. I wouldnt buy that card, though I would be and am buying Carrera right now....
