Thanks for your service.

To answer your question requires asking more questions Really depends on what you want out of the box, rookies, inserts, base cards, game-used cards, autographed cards. Generally speaking the bigger the cost, the bigger the reward (and/or risk you'll take to get that reward). Your base sets of Topps and Upperdeck will both hold value and buying a box or two will help towards getting those sets. Topps sterling is above the 150 mark you posted, yet has the best chances of pulling quality cards for a collection, same with topps triple threads. Long term value I'd probably suggest bowman draft picks and prospects. 06 or 07. Downside, lots of guys you may not of heard of, plus side, lots sell well to prospectors, or hold onto them and when someone gets hot dig through your collection to see what you have resell.
