I wouldn't. I'd do something else if I were looking to invest. An I spend a fair amount on baseball cards. In the long run I am hoping just to break even. The enjoyment of the hobby is a considerable dividend.

For me, I would probably take an ownership position in some small local companies, but I have the contacts to do that. There are folks out there with skills and ability to start profitable small ventures that need the seed money.

I think we will not see dramatic card increases over the next couple of decade. Of course I have thought that about the stock market since it was at $11,000...so I am often wrong.

51-52 bowman mantles can still be found at reasonable prices if you are patient but I'd avoid dropping 25-50 right now on a single card. Just my 2 cents.

Default any willie mays bounce expected in next 5 years?

Think 51 -52 Mays investment might be better than mantle or will mantle always be 13x mays? If I have a diversified portfolio but want one high value card like this would you go with a mantle over mays?

They are both good long term, Mantle a bit more, imo. Get the best buy/value you can on either...but Mantle has to be my choice long term. I should add, I am not as versed in post as I am pre war cards...Others might have better informed answers.

btw, this should have been moved to the correct forum a few days ago.....we are behind schedule due to holidays and all...
