Re: cap one close?

closing won't affect ur aaoa immediately just starts the clock until the ten year drop off period.  The fact that it's open and being your longest open account may help in getting the next card 6 months down the road.  Closed accounts factor in your aaoa but i don't think they help lenders determine whether your credit worthy open/recent history helps.

If you only have these 2 cards, I would keep it for 2 years.

Re: cap one close?

I'd close. I closed my oldest card before a change of terms introduced an annual fee. CL was $11, 800. It still shows on my credit report.
