Default 1951 Mantle or Jordan Star 101

Looking to buy either a PSA 1 1951 Mantle or a BGS authentic Jordan Star 101 RC. Both cards I’m looking at come in at right around the same price point, so I’m curious what you guys think would be the better buy here.

I understand that the Jordan isn’t exactly vintage per day, but they are both XRCs if you will.

Thanks in advance!

Mantle is a RC. That would be my pick as long as it has nice eye appeal.

Cant go wrong with either. Personally I'd get the Jordan because that 101 was a myth when I was growing up. Only seen in the pages of Beckett.

2nd this. Also, the 101 is really on an upswing right now and are drying up from the market. Now is the time to aquire. Plus if PSA ever decides to grade Star again the values will sky rocket, so you have that factor also.

Thanks for the insight so far guys. The BGS authentic Jordan and PSA 1 Mantle I’m looking at are almost identically priced which makes this even harder, haha.

Both!! lol. Currently have a BGS 7.5 Star 101 Jordan and a SGC 10 51 bowman Mantle. Bought both of them raw for close to the same price. I would go with the Mantle if the Jordan Star is altered. Do you have pictures of both?

It's not the altered Jordan on eBay with the chunk taken out of the side, is it? Go with Mantle if it is...

Altered MJ vs a centered Mantle RC? Go with the Mick.

Tough one...if the Jordan were graded I may lean towards that, but in this case go with the Mantle.
