Default Choosing a Box - Ideas?

I haven't had time to bust anything over the summer (last breaks were 2013 Bowman). Just curious if anyone has advice on what the most interesting breaks would be for the products that have come out. I don't like the super premium stuff, so things like:

2013 Bowman Chrome
2013 Bowman Platinum
2013 Topps Chrome
2013 Topps Finest
2013 Topps Mini
2013 Ginter
2013 Gypsy
2013 Tier One

I liked the 2013 Bowman product and if memory serves it has a nice value - Buxton, Correa, Polanco, etc. Would it still be the better choice?

If you like 2013 Bowman, then just wait for 2013 BDPP to come out. That's the next product I'm going to be busting.

I personally liked Topps Chrome the most. A lot of great rookie Autos (Puig, Machado, Gattis, Profar, Bundy) and color. In the three boxes plus a few packs I bought I got a Machado auto /25, Evan Gattis auto, Oswaldo Arcia auto /50, Profar red /25, Verlander camo /15 and a Domonic Brown Camo /15.

I also think that Ginter can be a lot of fun as well, but some very disappointing boxes can be had.

Just my two cents.

I like Chrome products for sure - thanks for the suggestions so far guys. I haven't had a chance to look at the Draft lineup - will need to figure that out and get my pre-order in.

Any other ideas?

Bowman Draft, regular Bowman, and Topps Chrome seem like the best 3 choices.

It won't make you money if you care about it, but Panini USA Champions is a fun break and has a whole lot of prospects in it, plus is cheaper than everything else.
