I don't think it's necessarily bad. How nice is the patch? Do you have a pic?


I collect rookie cards. Please check my list to see if you have anything I need.

I am looking for Don Mattingly cards that I don't have. Base, Inserts, Patches, maybe GU or Autos.

That could go either way. 1/1 printing plates are not that great, guess it depends on the patch.

Here are some recent Gonzalez plate sales, they vary from $13 - $50

Bradford Patches vary based on colors, I found one numbered to/15 3 colors and sold for $9.

I'd say you actually came out ahead on that one, but they're valued pretty similarly.

Not bad at all. A 1/1 printing plate is nice, but they aren't rare anymore.

you made the trade to begin with so something interested you about the Bradford patch. I would not second guess the trade and be happy with it

I think you did well...the cards may be similiar in value now...but the Bradford holds more potential....Gonzalez isn't going to increase substantially in value since his career is over..but Bradfords could increase alot.

As someone who would have absolutely no interest in either card I would rather have the Bradford.

Printing plates, while 1/1s (for that color), aren't the preferred 1/1. If it was a superfractor you traded - that might be bad.

Being a Falcons fan, I would say that is a bad trade, but normally, that does not sound that bad honestly.
