Default Top 3 products in the last 5 years?

It seems the general consensus is that 2011 Bowman Draft may be the deepest or one of the deepest quality breaks in a while. What else ranks up there since 2008?

2011 bowman chrome?
2012 Tier One?

2009 Bowman Draft - Trout Rookie Auto; most boxes had 2 auto's
2010 Bowman Draft - Tons of solid prospects; chance at some nice AFLAC's (Harper)
2011 Bowman Draft - deep auto checklist

It's 2011 BDPP in a landslide, isn't it?

I liked 2008 UD Heroes. I bought a couple cases right around $500 a couple years ago. Great chance of getting some good autos and sweet patches.

2009 Bowman draft has tons of colors each box and so many boxes have multiple autos
2009 Ultimate Collection - remember all those huge jumbo patches and the Jeter and Griffey autos?
2011 Bowman Draft - it's pretty cool to get a decent name out of most of the boxes.

Default 2011 Topps MLB Value Boxes...

...not even close. The best product Topps ever released hands down. Between the $3 redemptions, $2-$10 Harper, Update Series that features Mike Trout RC, and the extra loaded hobby packs of 2011 Bowman Chrome...winner in every box. No other product wins in every box. My $7500 was made back with interest...I miss those suckers...

IMO: 2011 Topps Tribute (if you bought before prices doubled), 2011 BDPP, and 2011 Topps Marquee.

An all bowman top 5? really? I say 2011 Topps Chrome, 2011 Topps Update, 2012 Topps Chrome and 2010 Bowman platinum should get some recognition

2009 Ulitmate Collection

My all time favorite product! Awesome jumbo patch cards and some pretty sweet autograph patch cards all on card, also a great checklist!

Really? 2011 Topps Marquee? I thought that was a god awful product and I thought that most people seemed to think the same.

You're right, most people did not seem to like it. I really did and still find myself picking up Titanic Threads. Nice AVATAR by the way. What product is that from?

I loved those cards! Easy to profit from. People loved those low numbered parallels and putting together player sets.

No question about it, 2009 Ultimate and 2008 Premier have got to be the top 2 products released in the last 5 years. Wish I could toss in 2007 sweet spot classic but thats 6 years old

I liked it too for the most part. The metal case hit autos are some of my fav cards. It left a bad taste in most people's mouth as it was so over hyped and over priced. Had it been more along the lines of Tier One pricing it would have been a great success.

2007 UD Premier was one of the best products ever made...2008 UD Premier was good as well but not as good as 07
