Good discussion by the way and very well stated points with out any personal bashing or name calling. i enjoyed this debate and hope that i have stated my side of the arguement well enough that even if you don't agree with it you can at least respect it and understand where i was coming from. Good day, and i hope we can discuss future topics in much the same manner.

My main argument is why bid that much on the auto and jersey! If you want to spend that much, then you are buying a card, not a jersey. You are getting 1% of the jersey in the letter plates, that is why I do not see any value in the card. What I am saying is id rather have every base card of griffey then this card. If you want a peice of jersey get the real thing, not something cut out. If you want it for the card aspect then cool, I am just not too big in game used, or cuts. Why ruin something nice to put it in a card? Some of them sure look nice, but when you are dishing out that much money you should have more than that to show for it.

I'd have to give the nod to the Griff. Despite the fact that it is 3/3 and not 1/1, they are autos. To me that would be a better value. Plus I think Griff may be the best player to ever swing a bat. Injuries just killed his chances to ever set any records

griff with auto went for 3.6k , But Pujols for 5k ?

No diggity I love the look of the set but knowing card manufactures, once they see how well they sold they mass produce next year. Both Card sets are Illmatic though

a griffey bat barrel 1/1 from Premier went for like 3.2k which is insane because you can get a full signed jersey/bat/cleats/game used probably for cheaper

We already went over this.....

Well the Pujols at 5K is not that outrageous cause those sterling letter patches have been going between $300-800 (I am sure cause he was getting the set together so he was over paying for it).

Does everyone forget that Griffey is now wearing number 3???? That is what makes the redemption set even more worthy of its being bought. Yes, the Pujols is number 1/1, no auto and not Jersey number...

Again...very few people care about jersey numbers! IF they do...I laugh in their general direction!

But seriously, I am working on the TOMLINSON football by the letter auto set. With the $1.2k I will end up spending on that, I'm sure I could buy some great memorabilia (which I probably will and already have anyway) ... but that will be a cool set of 9 autographed cards that will look awesome on display!!

One thing people forget - what if the guy who won the Griffey makes $750k a year, and him buying this set is like a random collector dropping $200 on some card(s)?
