Topps PSA 10 vs Tiffany PSA 9
 
For a junk wax era HOF RC, which would you rather have if you're only keeping one: A regular issue Topps PSA 10 or a Topps Tiffany PSA 9? Does the "value" lie in the grade of the 10 or the rarity of the Tiffany? Discuss.

I would rather have the Tiffany card. Have no idea about value now or in future. The Tiffany card is a nicer card and they didn't produce 100 Billion of them. Can't even imagine how many PSA 10 regular Topps cards are still sitting in the insane amount of sealed cases still around.

I'd definitely go with Tiffany.

This one should be at least a 9!

Seriously though, I don't place a lot of faith in grading, and am not always certain that a 10 is actually better than a 9 (or at least as can be told with the naked eye), so would go with the Tiffany 9.

Tiffany by a mile. The inherent rarity by comparison makes it a no brainer.

Nice cards, Peter. Just blindly choose one out of a paper bag and send me the other.:D

One problem with the Tiffany cards is their tendency to get yellowed over time. The front surface gloss may be degrading in certain heat/humidity conditions.

While I agree that Tiffany are infinitely better in terms of production, rarity and upside, I really enjoy the cards I grew up opening as a kid at the local gas station. Wax packs all the way!!!

I feel from a collecting stand point if I’m not PCing a specific player and collecting rookies of that decade I really enjoy the pack issues version more than the Tiffany. Granted this conversation is generally about cost more than it is about Tiffany vs Base version IMO. We would all love a set of PSA 9 Tiffany key rookies for our collections and investment.

I think for most what they realize is if you buy a Tiffany Bonds PSA 9 then for most that really limits the budget on future spending and puts strain on your PC accomplishments. When Bonds gets into the HOF the Tiffany will easily outperform the 45,000 graded base versions.

Of course there is no wrong way to collect and the Tiffany is the easy choice. I certainly have a few key rookies PSA graded myself, however you do have to pay to play. In my case rather than selling the Tiffany cards I would prefer to also buy the base versions and be patient and use the Tiffany versions as investment chips down the road if I choose to sell.

Just my two cents, but in the above example I would be in no way selling a Bonds Tiffany today but would sit tight as Bonds cards continue to gain momentum and the Tiffany is at the top of the list.

But I digress, to answer the question I would take the PSA 9 Tiffany over a base 10 all day. In most cases I would also take the PSA 8 as well over a base 10.

Agree. Probably would take a psa 8 tiffany than a psa 10. Regular version just way way way too many

If you are buying a Base PSA 10 then have at it.
If you think there are PSA 10's waiting for you in the gajillion unopened cases, be careful. PSA has gotten very stingy about junk PSA 10's especially as of late. You might spend a lot of coin going that route and not gotten your 10.

The original question is a hard call.
Depends on the card for me.
The Bonds above I think I would take the Tiffany version.
