    Just a fun comparison. Do you think, it's more logical to build a collection and take your time, finding it, for stuff like this;

    This card sold for 5k

    Or you'd rather get an expensive item that has a price itself very high but can be easily found;

    This hoodie is like 1k atm

    What stuff do you prefer or think it's worth it?

    If the thing has functional value, I'd rather overspend on that.

    I take the hoodie, because I can wear it myself.

    A sports card would only collect dust.

    The thing is that the card won't be found anytime soon. For a hoodie you can get a 20$ one.

    So this is a good question :)

    The card may go up in value and you can make a profit later. Good luck doing that with a hoodie. In fact, the only article of clothing you might be able to flip later on for profit are sneakers.

    I just don't like the Idea of spending a big amount of money on an Item that I'll put away in a box/binder/frame and look at occasionally, and that's it.

    I agree, tbh. Seems like a waste of money just to "have" the item.

    Bump after 16 minutes..

    Let me guess, someone is holding a gun against your head right now making you choose between these items?

    I'd take the hoodie and collect it btw..

    Limited edition, limited print run seems more... special.
