In terms of RC's, I know I'll nab an average of 30-40 per player (and up to 100 on the prospects). More of a guarantee for me ...

I broke 20 cases of Bowman Chrome, nabbed 320 autos (33% more) and my best prospect auto in 20 cases was probably a Garcia Blue. (Purple Boss and Chafin ... YUCK)

Nab some good parallels, some good RC's and prospects, many chances at a bigger parallel or Super ... and guaranteed value (as close as I can get).

I played safe this time, rather than sorry.
Mike, totally hear ya. I learned my lesson when I took Rizzo rookie autos in a 5-caser of '11 Finest. I left Trout base on the board and only ended up with one base autograph

In the next break of the same product (a 10-caser this time), I took Trout base and left a ton of auto spots on the board. I ended up selling 40+ base rookie cards for $10-$15 each -- and that didn't even include parallels
