I picked up these beauties a few years ago and have been sitting on them ever since. The question is, should I hold them longer to see if he pans out, or dump them now before he stinks up the joint???

Personally I like the kid. He had a nice college career, and I think he is a great sleeper.

Both of these cards are VERY mint too!!!

From a Bears fan.. I would say sell them now while you can.

He just doesnt have the arm strength to be a threat downfield or for the out patterns of 15+ yards.

I would guess that Rex will be back under center before the midway point of the season.

Maybe your right,

I don't have much in them so it wouldn't be too tragic if he didn't pan out.

Depends, have you been following the market on these cards? Are they at a higher selling point then they have been in awhile? More importantly, will you make money on them? If you buy things to flip them later, you really have to follow the card's market.

05 was a great looking set...and the gold versions are awesome with the bigger patch windows!

if you don't have much interest in them I'd sell now in case he plays horrible...but I'm kinda on the bandwagon of him being a sleeper too...I think he has what it takes!

-Colt McCoy inserts/rookies/certain autographs

I would think sell the /25 One

Keep the other one.


If he does not pan out then at-least you probably made more on the /25 then you paid for both of them.


If he becomes pretty good then you have a Rookie Auto Patch anyway!!


BEYAW!

If you still have them now, you should probably hold on for a few more weeks.

The Bears schedule isnt that bad over the next month (Atl, Min, BYE, Det), so he could put up some good numbers and heat them up a little more.

But then the schedule starts gettting a little tougher and the weather will get a little worse for the passing game in Chicago and his stats should cool off.

I have to say, Im still not sold on him (its not like I am sold on Grossman either.. lol), but he has done better then I expected so far this season. Still think he lacks the arm strength to be a threat in the long passing game, but with teams putting 8 and 9 in the box to try to stop Forte, he doesnt have to go too deep to throw a completion that could go for a lot of yards (like Olsens 52 yarder last week wink.gif )

I'd keep at least one just because of how clean and nice looking the card is.

I'd go with most people and day sell, though I'd only sell one while his value is high because from here he can either reach that elite plateau or go back down to what he's been the past 3 yrs, but great looking cards
