Default $1500 to spend

Just wondering if you had $1500 to spend on one card as an investment, what would it be.

I have other investments, own my home and all that stuff.
Just thinking a card that will grow in value, not short term.

Cards aren't great investments. I'd just buy a case of something with that money cuz I'm a wax addict.

This. I've not had any of my vintage lose value. Best is I bought a Jim brown PSA 6 for under $300 maybe 2 years ago and I could get north of $500 now...

PSA 8.5 Jordan looks fair value or can I push for a 9.
What could I get a 8.5 for ?

Pick up a pound of meth and start a meth dealing empire...that $1,500 could be $1.5 million in just a matter of months! I heard Jesse Pinkman is back in the game.

Better investment than trading cards...just a tad bit more dangerous.

Well I wasn't saying you should use it...you know the century old adage..."don't get high on your own supply".

I would never buy one card with that amount.
It is too easy to turn a $1500 lot of something into $10,000 over the course of a few months with a little work.
