Default Fair Trade? McDavid foil YG for Matthews Foil YG?

Just looking for opinions or insight as to if this is a fair trade. I usually go by sold prices, but there are not a lot of them to base a comparison on. There are some outrageous list prices for both, so I'm seeking some opinions as to whether this is a fair trade.

No. McDavid value is higher than Matthews value ATM. That would change w/ a 50 goal Matthews season OR a Cup in Toronto.

But this trade would be skewed in favor of the collector who owns the McDavid when it's over.

The one thing I would say in favor of the deal is that for every Matthews Young Guns Foil there are probably 20 McDavid's. I see the Matthews being much more sought after years from now as it is by far the more rare card.

Can you justify this comment? Are there actual reported print numbers from Upper Deck from both years?

In general I believe both are low. But after seeing what McDavid's foils sold for no one was trading in 5 YG's for one foil (not going for 5 x's the standard YG price). So I think people were quite hesitant to do the same for Matthews.

as a guy that does alot of epack, and knows the numbers

It might be easy to say McDavid ... but its Matthews 100%.

Theres about 20 times more McDavid foils than Matthews.

Theres been Matthews sales up to 2k. While McDavid has sold for as low as 800

BGS population report:

Auston Matthews young guns foil graded:9
Conor Mcdavid young guns fill graded:127

PSA has a similar spread but don't had those numbers handy.

fyi foils do not sell period
any rational person would rather have 5 regular mcdavids or 5 regular matthews ygs over one foil

the foils are a bogus market

I've sold my high end 2016-17 foils for more than 5ygs, and my high end 2016-17 rainbow foils for 25ygs.

The market is growing for them - those who foiled 16-17 are winning

I donít doubt it. The 15/16ís did so poorly no one dared to convert 16/17 so there is far less in existence.
