Need Help Chosing a Case to Buy
 
Hey all.. i usually don't ask for assistance with cases to buy as I susually know what I want.. But im getting a nice backpay check from work in about 2-3 weeks that i'll be able to (if i wanted to ) buy a few cases, but I only need one.. so price range can be up to about 1500$ -

I don't want exquisite, or Ultimate.

I'm thinking about Hot Prospects or SPX (08-09)... Any other suggestions? Whats a good value for the break?

Go Chrome!

you probably can't find a box of chrome, but chrome only has 1 auto per box, and unless its rose, its going to be worth less than the box. You should go with Hot Prospects

How about 2008 sp rookie threads basketball

willcvincent 07-15-2009 01:35 PM

Chrome all the way.

deuxmachinax 07-15-2009 01:36 PM

Chrome or 09-10 Topps

Chromeeeee

Chrome? I hadn't thought about that... I know blowout is sold out (for now) .. but I think there are other sources that have some..

I'd definitely get 09-10 Game Used. It looks awesome.

Or get a 6 box case of Black, I've seen some really sweet ones.

Agree no Ult or Exq.

There is not much of it around anymore. I bought a ton of it through BO after release (6 cases). The stufff was hot and still is, especially the refractor's (orange /499..gold /50). A case now is gonna be over $1000 whereas I was paying $700ish 4 months ago. I made a decent amount back on it selling in LARGE Rc lots and sets. 20 D. rose RC's brought $250 on feebay for example. I don't know how well you will do now for paying that kinda coin. Good luck to whatever you choose.

PS--you may want to think about 08/09 SPA

2007/08 Chronology was a very fun case to open.

Nuggetsman, these cases have been sold out for a while. No one has had these. And if your talking about ebay, then you should know never to buy boxes on ebay.

red48 07-15-2009 10:46 PM

I thought about SPA 08-09, but its just too pricey at 1525. At that price point, it makes it not really worth it.

Thought about 09-10 SP Game-Used... however.. its going to be loaded with junk jersey cards they need to get rid of. I bet very few of the cases are remotely worth the pre-sell price. A lot of shop owners thought Ultimate was supposed to be really worth it, and... look at it.. its crap.

what about black ? if you get a good case you will do good!!

nuggetsman28 07-15-2009 11:51 PM

[QUOTE=248rayment4343;271612]what about black ? if you get a good case you will do good!![/QUOTE]

i think that applies with all cases!!:p

ttblue 07-16-2009 12:03 AM

I would go with UD Black. You are guaranteed at least 2 A-level autos (most cases have 4). Also, of the 20 cards in the case, you will most likely receive no less than 18 autos.

I'd probably take a chance on 08-09 SPX, 10 hits a box with some nice subsets seems worth it to me.
