Default Most fun box to open?

I just recently opened up a box of 2012 Bowman Platinum and it was probably the most fun I've had busting wax since I returned to collecting this year.

Autographs, redemption, RCs, PC cards, die-cuts, #'d cards, and lots of colored refractors (see pic). It just seemed like I got an insert in every pack. And that to me made it a lot of fun! I wasn't concerned (at that moment at-least) about whether I'll make money back or if I scored the biggest hit.

What box have you opened that was just fun and entertaining?

Not a bad box
Who is the Redemption of? And I would like the Justin Upton Die-Cut if your going to move it.
I also need a few of the base cards from this set to complete mine.

I really enjoy Triple Threads. This was my first year busting it, and apparently it's rough compared to the past; but it's a LOT of fun pulling autos/relics from every pack

Platinum this year was really fun to open. Your box was well below average and it seems like you still enjoyed it! Great product, lots of color, inserts, refractors, autographs, big names.

I think I'll have to get another box soon especially since mine wasn't even average! Maybe there's a reason why it's one of the more expensive boxes out there.

Bowman platinum does seem like a pretty cool product. Might try to pick one up

Yup, it is. Wish it was a Harper or Darvish...oh well.

I'd have to say it was the most fun too since it was the first thing I opened since I too also returned to the hobby. Only thing I busted a case, but I also did not care about making money back on it. Lots of inserts and hits as well as a ton of base cards left over. I'm more into trading and collecting anyway. I also tried a few other stuff to see what I like.....As far as cases go only did

2012 Bowman Platinum Case=Super Fun
2012 Bowman Chrome Case=Average (Just seeing what the prospecting hype is about)
2011 Topps Tier One Hobby Boxes=O.K. (1/3 Good Box)
2012 Topps Tier One Hobby Box=Average/O.K. Box
2012 Topps Museum Hobby Box=Super Fun (A bit rich though)(Like these cards the best)
2006 Allen & Ginter Hobby Box=Really Fun (Probably "Super Fun" if it was a case)
2010 Bowman Jumbo Boxes=Really Fun (1 Box Exceptional/1 Box Average) Pulled a Dustin Ackley Blue Ref Auto & 1/1 Magenta Printing Plate in same box. Super Stoked!

Personally being on a 12 year old's budget at the time(14 now), My one box of 2010 Topps Chrome was great! Bunches of RCs and I pulled a Heyward Rc Auto! (At the time was a $40 card) Still have the card and not going anywhere.

Topps HTA jumbos. 3 hits in a box, lots of great possibilities, and lots of inserts and parallels in every pack. Absolutely my favorite product to bust, and affordable at less than 100 bucks. Plus you almost always complete the base set. I've had lots of sweet pulls, 1/1 letter patches, great autos, and even the manufactured relics are pretty darn cool.
