Default what hobby box to buy???

i was wondering what the best hobby box is to buy for under 50$...baseball...im only 14, and i know most kids r like me. cant afford a hobby box because they r to expensive. I wish topp, ud, panini, ect would realize hobby boxes r wayyy overpriced

so if anyone could help..and im not into bowman or bowman chrome..more for veteran players..thanx

You won't find anything half decent for under $50. Take that $50 and buy an autograph of (insert name here) there are a ton of superstars and HOFers whose autos can be had for $50 or less.

-Howdy there. To assist in answering your question, it might help to know a bit more about your goal. Are you just wanting a fun box break, are you wanting to try and turn some profit on the box, are you interested in autographs or not, etc.

Good luck in your hunt, have a good day.

"luck" doesn't exist. If you start trying to build a collection by buying boxes that that you can barely afford your collection will go nowhere fast (unless you want a stockpile of Jorge Posada and/or Nick Markakis bat cards).

If you are a Yankees fan, buy an autograph card of this guy named "Yogi Berra" I think he was pretty good and you can definitely find an autograph of his in the $40 range.


Here is your best bet for a box under $50 imo:

2010 Famous Fabrics Series 2 Box - $48.95 : Blowout Cards - Sports Cards and Trading Cards Wholesale Online Store


or this might be better for what you seem to be looking for :

2 Jerseys, 1 auto per box and rookie cards of Buster Posey

You'll find quite a few inserts and maybe get lucky and hit a Jeter auto.

I love the O's, but as of right now Markakis is still over rated, just like everyone else we ever get.

I think Adam Jones is becoming my new favorite player. Haven't really had a favorite since Ripken quit playing.

I've tried to find some other young guys to start following, but its impossible for me to want to really collect guys other than Orioles.

In 2010, I'd second Topps Chrome. Or maybe 2010 Topps T206. That's another good choice.

Topps chrome is NOT the product to buy if you are looking for veteran players and not rookies/prospects.

I would say Ticket to Stardom. I would imagine those are still around $50. Fun break.
