Trout.

Now personally I think a better question would be Trout update or Betts chrome auto (which is severely under-priced at the moment).

Soto has more room to appreciate IMHO

Thank you everyone for your input. After careful consideration, I bought a True Gem Mookie Betts Base Auto.

Did I make the right decision?

Soto is a rookie subject to failure and devaluation.

Mike Trout is a living legend subject to appreciation.

That wasn't an option. You broke the rules.

I don't think Mookie has the appreciation potential of either of the cards you were originally looking at. No matter how good he is, some players just don't spark the collector craze like others. Just my opinion though.

Bad move IMO. First Bowman Chrome Autos that are released the same year as all their RC logo cards get lost in the shuffle of a million products. You were better off getting the Heritage Update Auto, it has broader appeal and its the same year.

i love trout dont get me wrong but you can get a clean high grade soto psa 10 for around $500 right now (the same as a us175 psa 10). strictly from an investment seeking ROI i see these as:

very affordable
considerable upside

simply put dollar for dollar a much better short term off season investment than us175. i would monitor and perhaps sell off during the season if you can sell at a 50% plus profit.

Trout. He made a Topps Update BASE RC reach triple (read TRIPLE) figures! A BASE RC!!!

If that doesn't make it iconic then nothing will.

I see several people comparing the 2011 Trout to the 1989 Griffey. I'm pretty sure if you invested in Griffey in 1996 (seven years after it came out), you'd have lost a lot of money. Therefore, I voted for Soto.

They are both about the same age, so I will go with Trout.

Value wise, of course Trout......I think more people (within the hobby and outside the hobby) would recognize the Griffey '89 Upper Deck over the 2011 Trout, imo...

Yes, that is true, but to deny that the Trout US175 has not been a "game changer" is wrong, IMO

100%, both are game changer's in their own respect....I'm probably a little biased since Griffey is my favorite player and that '89 UD was perfect in my eyes...

right but in 20 more years then the trout will have been around for as long and his career will have ended likely as a HOF legend...so his card would then have the same time span that the griffey has now...

and all the kids that love trout will be adults who will be wanting the trout RC like how the adults now covet the 89UD Griffey from when they were kids

both are "iconic" for different reasons to a degree

Griffey card did bring on a new wave of technology with the UD and all that stuff..and was insanely popular and awesome and the card has an iconic picture to it

Trout like mentioned made a base card worth hundreds of dollars...a random base card in the era of Autos and 1/1s...and his card will be likely just as recognizable as most any other card once it has been around for a couple decades or more IMO
