The one you want the most. Id probably go with the nicer card between the Gibson and the brooks.

I am a big fan of Gibson, and the 59 set was the first one I completed, but Robert just does not look right in pink. Also I have the Ryan but am not a fan of multiple player cards, even when they feature two good players. I would say Robinson from a visual standpoint. Nice card from a great set. Now if it was a 58 Robinson, that would be easy to eliminate

Personally I am just a collector and would defer to others on investment advice.

If the Gibson is centered, Id do that. Tough to find centered.

Even though it's a lower grade, I'd go with the Ryan RC. I've just always really liked that card. The Gibson is a very close second though for me. Unlike some, I like the pink.

Since centering seems to be the biggest driving force behind value
these days, go with the most centered card if you still cant decide.
