Default Best box?

Hey,

I am TOTALLY new to baseball, and have never opened or bought ANY. (Ive always been a Hockey/Football guy). And I thought I would try my first ever baseball box. So what do you guys think is the best one for me?

$30-$60 range
Decent amount of hits
Fun rip and easy to flip

Thanks for anyones help in advance!!!

~Cameron

If you're doing baseball for that purpose- Don't do it, just save your cash and/or buy football/hockey! From what I've heard Hockey is better to rip and flip.... if you're doin baseball for fun/collecting then you're good...

I would be doing it just for fun. But just in case I would have to sell them, they would sell.

Oh! And I really like Lettermans (And I have never owned one lol)

Get together an extra $15-20 and get a box of 08 Donruss Threads Baseball from BO on ebay. I've opened 2 boxes so far and love the stuff.

Yes, I have to agree with pskell.. Threads is popular right now- ripped one myself and plan on getting a few more..this one is definitely a fun break and it also has lettermans if i'm not mistaken. This is probably your best bet on fun and flips

Threads is wayyy better than heroes IMO, also I am biased as I've always liked Donruss stuff... Heroes is not near as fun as Threads IMO probably because its Upper Deck lol!

Yeah, same here. I am a big Donruss fan. But the Lettermans are really rare. What do you guys think of SP Authentic? It says 2 lettermans per pox? and its less than $60. If not, threads will be my next choice

I would ALWAYS go with Donruss vs Upper Deck.... I bought SP authentic but only one blaster and a retail box that I could search in a retail store lol.... other than that no... stay away from UD at all costs IMO or you will come away disappointed more times than not... trust us- go with Donruss Threads already

Threads should run you between $4-5. SPA will probably be upwards of $7-8.

You could go for the home run and get a box of 2007 Bowman Draft. A nice blue refractor of the right player and you double your money in one pack.

2008 Donruss Threads is really popular right now and I must say you get your monies worth. If you can afford go for the whole box and assure yourself of the 4-6 hits plus nice inserts. Even if you are gonna buy a few packs it isn't a bad investment. I bought 2 individual packs of threads and pulled a Stan Musial G/U Jersey Auto #/25! Whatever you decide with good luck.
