Anything modern is bound to boom and bust with very few exceptions. Modern collectors have a very short memory.

I wish I would have learned that lesson years ago.

Trout interest like they all have done, will boom at his retirement and HOF election. If he keeps getting older and the stats show it, you risk those booms being less than the current market.

Sell it and leave it in someone else's worry.

Thanks guys I have tried to sell it, with little luck. Hopefully these last 2 games are a positive sign of things to come, and interest will pick up.
Prefer deals sent to my COMC US address if you are in the states.

If you could get close to four grand in trade, that's too tempting to pass on. That said, I think Trout and Kershaw are pretty solid bets.

The thing that always worries me is that I have had autographs disappear from Topps cards (it was only a Rafael Furcal, so arguably no big deal). When I pulled it it was in nice blue sharpie. Stored it nicely but it still faded into oblivion.

Trout is absolutely on fire. 20 hits in his last nine games including five doubles and three home runs. He's running again, too. 13 steals in 14 tries.

Up to .325 with 17 HR and a 1.002 OPS. So much for his power declining.

You need to consign that shininess to one of the two big eBay sellers as fast as humanly possible.

That is one of a small handful of modern cards that I would like to own. That said, would I rather have that or, among others, a 33 Goudey Ruth in VG range, a NM Mantle or two, or an Aaron RC ..... the question to ask yourself may get easier.

There is no right or wrong answer, but maybe selling the Trout now and restocking a few years from now may be a solution. I think the gamble would lean in your favor.

In any event, good luck with your decision and the cards that may become part of your colllection

Does the 2001 Bowman Pujols auto still go for huge cash? I don't see any recently sold on eBay. I'd use that card as the barometer. If it's still a $1,000 card I guess that would mean it neither went up or down in 15 years.

It may expensive and an iconic card but I don't think the interest is what it was when Pujols was the best player in the game.

I think you would have a difficult time selling the card for full BV at this time

Look for our show listings in the Net 54 Calendar section

If you aren't into it for real money and you like it, why not ride it out? I pulled this Jeter card from a pack and I am pleased that I kept it; when I think about a Jeter card to own, I realize I am done:
