Default Open box of SP Authentic 07-08 or 08-09, should I try?

I think the cost of box is more than $150 right now. Between 07-08 and 08-09, which one you prefer ans think it is a better choice?

Well, still unsure whether I should risk for Rose or Durant SPA and busting just for fun or use that kinf od money to grab nice singles instead.

What about retail 08-09? The retail autos are nice but guess the chance is really small.

I already have complete base set of 08-09 so I may prefer to grab 07-08 instead. (At least I will get base cards that I don't have)

I would say 08/09 because there are more good RC's.

I would go with 08/09 myself. I busted 2 boxes of 07/08 when it first came out. One was decent (Horford RPA) and the other was terrible (missing hits). So I would go with the stronger rookie class and I think the 08/09 patch autos look better then 07/08. I would avoid retail unless its super dirt cheap.

I would just save the money and try to buy the RC off ebay. At $150 per box, u can grab a derrick rose auto patch SPA for the price of little more than 2 boxes and the chance of you hitting one yourself is probably 1 per 2 cases. Other thank derrick rose u're guaranteed to lose money. Even the 2nd best seller russell westbrook goes for less than the box price. Also in case you didn't bust any of SPA when they were cheap, its really hit or miss, plenty of $1 hits in there.

i agree with crazymj, but then again, that's true for EVERY box, every year, every sport.

just based on year tho, i'd say 08-09 as you have a better chance of hitting a nice rookie

Can't find the box of 07-08 or 08-09 at great price unless I try to bid them from eBay when they pop up. Blowout doesn't have 08-09 left too.

When some of you said when SPA (either 07-08 or 08-09) were cheap, how much they were cost? I just came back to collect card this year after didn't collect for a very long time.

Thank you.

08-09 is better for the rookie class.

07-08 is Durant or miss.

In both years you can have MJ and Lebron autos so that's always nice.

I'd say 08-09...

I just bought 2 boxes of Panini since I'm not sure i should spend around $150 for one box of SPA.

I heard that SPA 07-08 last year was just $75. For current price at $150, I can grab a nice auto instead so I decide not to grab one at this time.

(However, the feeling that I need to bust SPA is really strong and I'm not sure how long I can resist.)

I know this sounds weird but I'd rather bust one SPA than 2 Panini.

I dislike Panini more and more with each new release.

Yeah but I can't find 08-09 boxes below $165 and the lowest price I found on 07-08 is $150. Some sell these boxes almost $200.

Never bust panini and not a big fan of panini too (hate the design and how ugly the sticker auto is) However, UD boxes left in the market are getting rarer and more expensive. (and have expired redemptions too)
