11/12 Limited Logos Tavares /50 or 11/12 Elite auto patch neal 4/5
I have the 11/12 the cup limited logos tavares out of 50, 3 colours.
There is a 11/12 elite auto patch of james neal 4 colours numbered 4/5.
Would you do a straight up trade of the tavares for the neal.
Let me know your opinion guys!

Just a little background guys....
I am the one with the Neal /5 (pictured below)
The only copy I saw sell so far went for $175 and the patch was only 3 colors (the listing is more than 90days old, but I would love it if someone could help me confirm this for the other trader) while mine is 4. I am looking for $100-$125 cash value on it.
The EXACT tavares card is this one:
which was purchased by cardsfigsandmore for $70.99 which is is the same area as the previous 2 sold for.
So I asked him to pad the deal with an Igor Larionov Stanley cup signatures which sells in the $25-$30 area.
So the actual trade would be:
James Neal Patch/Auto /5
Tavares Limited Logo /50
Larionov Stanley cup sig /50
Just as a side note, this post won't really change the value that I am looking for on the Neal, so I hope that isn't the intent of the OP.

Tough call. Tavares still gets his fair share of hobby attention due to the #1 draft status, but Neal is very underrated in the hobby. If Neal is a PC guy that you'll want to keep, you may end up with a great low-numbered addition. Gotta give to get, as it were.
Personally, I'd want to have the Tavares. He's more of the sure thing (Cup card helps) when it comes to value.

If I could add a nice peace to my collection having an idea of what the card is worth in my eyes. I would go for it because for me, at the end of the day. Value would mean nothing.

I would do it the trade in a heart beat. Its a really nice Neal patch with only 5 of them as well makes it more rare then the 2 other patches you would be sending back. If your thinking Elite is a way lower end product then The Cup & that is why you are hesitating on the trade all I have to say about that is The Cup is highly over rated. Its also easier to get a card out of 50 or less in The Cup then it is out of Elite or lower products which in my opinion makes lower end lower serial numbers more valuable from some lower end sets.
