Default 5 base chrome autos or one gold?

Curious what folks think is a better investment, and why (if you have a reason).
Edit to add - this is assuming the base is not SP at all.

I would prefer to have the base autos, but from a money stand point, if the guy hits big, the Golds will almost always be worth more than 5 base.

Probably the Gold. Even if the values are the same you have only have to sell one card instead of 5. I would think the better the player the more like the Gold beats the 5 base.

Base because if he fails you have more to get rid and easier to move

I'll say base. I think when players hit big their higher value cards won't increase as much % wise.
