Default Most interesting product that you have opened

What is the most interesting product that you have opened? Not the most expensive, or the product that you pulled your largest hit but the one that you found the product compelling and fun.

Every year for 3 years I would buy the same box of 2008 Topps Upper Deck & Highlights and Every box I opened had a 1/1. The first had a Bobby Jenks 1/1 sketch card, the second had a Jimmy Collins 1909 t206 buyback as well as a Nate MCClouth 1/1 plate and the last one had a Nolan Ryan Stadium Club 1/1 Sketch Card. I thought it was neat how crazy my luck was with those boxes. The only reason why I opened them in the first place was because they were like 22 bucks

Topps Total. Bought one pack in my early days of collecting. Never really understood the numbering though, I mean its numbered by team set and base set. Kind of confusing

I really enjoyed 2005 Prime Patches, a lot of nice cards in that product.

Theyre a bit stale but once you start chewing its not so bad. Have you tried 1980 gum?

2006 Ginter. Bought it at a small hobby shop didn't really understand the product at first but after pulling a kobiyashi auto I was like "damn this is a crazy product". The shock has worn off with it over the years

I have not but it sounds delicious. I bet Rickey Henderson RC's make the gum taste better too.

I like Rookie anthology hockey. The amount of packs VS hits VS price is pretty good for my taste.

2003-04 Topps Pristine Hockey, that set was awesome. Great for breakers.

1997 Fleer Sports Illustrated, the best and worst set at the same time. The base set was perfect, the rest of it was yuck.

1999 Fleer Gamers and the 1997-1999 Fleer Circa products were a bunch of fun.

1977 Topps Mexican Football.

Just finding cards without gum/wax stains was a challenge, as well as the horrible distribution which once saw me pull 17 Ken Andersons from a single box.

I enjoy Allen and Ginter every year. Not only do they have a good selection of baseball players both past and present, but also bring a good non-baseball list as well. Not to mention minis, inserts, and rip cards. Truly a very interesting product, that other companies have tried to reproduce.
