Default What Hobby Box(es) Should I Take?

Hey guys I've got about $200 to buy boxes or singles. What should I take? A really nice single, a high end box or 2 mid end boxes? What product should I get? Also open to any pre sells!
Need opinions! Thanks!

Good point. But what should I take? Prospects or a star? Most people would usually go for a nice PC Card but really looking to expand my traders.

Buy a box of 2011 Draft or 2011 Bowman and spend the remaining 100 or so on singles.

If you're that worried about what box to buy, it means you want one with the best hit. If that's truly case, just buy singles.
