I can see this mind set, but the thing that turns me off to cards nowadays (and I hate that it took me so damn long to see the light on this) is the extreme volatility of them. You pick up a card of 1st overall draft pick joe blow. Mr. Blow goes out the first few games and is just ridiculously good so his card prices go way up. Then Mr. Blow gets tackled wrong and tears up his knee and is out for the season...down goes the prices through the floor.

I hate that...its just too much for me. So in the future if I do ever decide to buy cards again, I'll only be buying cards that are older than I am by a sizeable margin

this is why I dumped everything I had as well... kept a card or two for setimental reasons, but I am done with cardboard overall... I don't mind losing a bit of money here and there, but when I sold certain player pcs, I think I sold them for 10-50% of what I paid... well except for RGIII, I am so glad I dumped all that crap while he was still pretty hot, that's how I got my feet wet in silver... now you can barely give his stuff away...

Ever since day one in my collecting career I have dumped the rookies. They can always be had 3 or 4 years later for pennies on the dollar. To this day I still dump them. My main PC is Peyton Manning and in 2012 product I pulled 4 Luck autos all of which were traded for Peytons within hours of pulling them lol Now I stack Peyton and HOFers that I grew up watching - Emmitt, Barry, Elway, Favre, Rice etc etc. I have never chased the flavor of the week. I tried with Bradford - Lasted a couple months. Tried with Daniel Thomas - Lasted a couple months. The ones I love are my Manning PC and my random star player PC and thats what I keep going back to.

So lets bump this up and shoot the breeze about metal

If you guys had $1,000 to buy gold or silver
list specifically what you would purchase and why
I will start(and ebay/apmex or retail price is fine)

1. 1 roll uncirculated 2013 silver eagles $511.00 apmex
Id purchase these for collectability/silver value

2. 10 1 ounce generic rounds $235.60 any silver house
id purchase these for silver content

3. Id purchase $15.5 of 90% kennedys at 17 times face(about the going rate)
when the crud hits the fan we will need a form of silver to purchase things in smaller quantities to buy foo/guns/ammo/ and that kind of stuff


Id like to know how you guys would spend your $1,000 so lets hear it

plus they only mint 500k of them so maybe a better buy than more eagles that there are millions of.

I like the kooks because they change every year plus the low montage numbers.

I would buy pretty much what I already buy.

As of current VBCE prices... (No shipping charges or tax, so these prices are all in costs)

1x 1/4 ounce gold Maple - $372
2x 10 ounce silver bars - $490
5x Silver Eagles - $131.70.

That leaves $6.30 left

you could get some supplies for the eagles and the gold maple with the 6.30

The Maples come in sealed plastic and VBCE puts individual Eagles in plastic pouches, they will also give me empty tubes if I ask, for free (another reason I like doing business there). When I fill a tube I just ask for another empty one when I purchase my next loose Eagles.
