Default 2008 Topps RIP card, to RIP or not to RIP

In order to stop my itchy finger from going after the 2 Fleer Retro basketball boxes that my local LCS was kind enough to save for me. Wanted to wait for the dust to settle before deciding to bust or keep for long term since they should be redemption free.

I saw and bought a 2008 Topps basketball box from a local LCS to rip and see if I can find some Kevin Love stuff for my PC.

Kevin Love stuff I did not find, but get one of this and wondering what to do...!!

What do you guys think, and do you know what are the mini card embeded inside this things look like, any of them on ebay now ??

THANK in Advance for your opinions... !!!

I'm really surprised with the responses. Most of the time people have no problem spending/blowing other peoples money on this site, but I would sell as is.

Yes definitely do not rip. Even if you end up pulling some auto mini card, it might still not sell as well as the unripped wade.

It's a low #ed rip card of a big time player. Sell it and get something you like.

Thanks for all the comments...

Seems like a common opinion that not RIPPING is the right(smart) thing to do.

DO NOT RIP IT.
The sealed rip cards are great sellers. The card inside... not so much
