Beat-up Vintage Contest #2

A while back I had a contest to give away a few vintage cards that had been put through the ringer.  That contest required research, time and luck.  This time around, it just requires a comment.  No plugging needed on your blog, just answer this question in your comment.

If you could debate another blogger/reader about which card you would want out of 2 cards, what would the 2 cards be?

Example:  "I'd want any 1964 topps common over any non-hit card from 2011 Topps"

Any answer is acceptable, but I'm hoping to get some good ideas for a future series where I would get 2 of you to actually do the debate on my blog.  So the more realistic the debate ideas, the better.

Oh, and I will be out of town until Thursday morning, and out of blogging range, so you can get one entry for each qualifying comment, 1 per day, for a max of 3 entries.  Random.org, blah blah.

So you want to see the prize????  They are 12 hammered vintagy cardboard pieces, complete with 9 HOF'ers!  Click the pics to see the truly beat up condition in all it's close up glory!

I would take anything 2002 Bowman in nature over any 2011 non-hit of one of my favorite players.

Would I take a beat-up vintage Nolan Ryan (say, early 70's) with a rounded corner or two over a 2011 Topps diamond sparkle insert of Nolan Ryan in perfect shape? I'd be really hard to turn down some vintage... but it'd also be hard to turn down a great new card...
