There is not one product out there that will make you a profit unless you hit a 1/1 of a good player or something else amazing. Market is soft right now, very soft. Your best aproach is to buy singles of players and resell once their value goes up.
This is good advice.
To the OP - If you want a fun, fairly cheap break that has a good chance at breaking even, I would suggest a box of 2011 Chrome Football rack packs.
2011 Topps Chrome Football Value Rack Pack Box - $187.95 : Blowout Cards - Sports Cards and Trading Cards Wholesale Online Store
Newton, Dalton, Green, etc all still sell fairly well. You also have the shot at some nice color and the retail exclusive orange refractors that sell for a premium.
Remember though, although its a fun break its still not a guaranteed money maker. Nothing is. Good luck.
