I have a 2008 sp rookie thread letterman auto joe flacco #02/41 in my pc.
I figured it would be good to have matching serial runs from same set and may have some value in the future specially if they win a few super bowls together. I know that rg3 looks good but he is still an unknown for the future, injuries seem to plague alot of good players in the past. I just wanted some general feedback from anyone thoughts. Thanks and HAPPY NEW YEARS TO EVERYONE!!! Happy trading too!!!

    I wouldn't call that a bad trade at all. You got a RC auto of a proven top running back and merely gave up some cardboard of guys who have only some big time hype at this point. Yeah, harper and griffin have both performed well, but a lot can happen from here on out. The only thing I take issue with in your post is "if they win a few super bowls together". If you believe Joe Flacco is ever going to win a Super Bowl, I've got some ocean front property here in Missouri for sale.....

    I don't think you did badly at all. Platinum doesn't hold its value well at all, with Chrome being a far superior product producing the exact same thing, in my opinion. The jersey you gave up isn't GU, just event worn, and there are /299. Neither of the Harper's are anything too special, but I do love the Bowman Chrome.

    In return you got a PC card of a franchise great, and the matching serials are kinda cool, too. That, and there are only 63 of them.

    I do think you got the better end of the trade.

    Like the poster above me said, Platinum doesn't really hold its value that well, sells really hot out of the gate then cools way down when contenders, SPA, Exquisite, NT comes out.

    Im not sure if the serial number being the same will matter though in the long run. I don't think most people would care what serial number it is if it isn't the players jersey number, which some people pay a premium for.

    All in all though, nice trade.
