Default Let's talk about boxes that we truly enjoyed opening.

For me back in 2009 I had a lot of fun opening Bowman '48, 2007 Chronology, 2007 Topps Letterman, 2007 Leaf Limited (Football)

My 2 favorites:

98-99 Flair Showcase
03-04 Fleer Platinum Rack

Unfortunately, the days of getting these in my price range have long passed.

In all honesty, 2005/06 Topps Total. A six box case was $150ish and there were 3-4 printing plate 1/1's per case and 3 Gold parallels #/10

I would say 05-06 Sweet Shot too ... Because my best pull ever came out of a single Box: Magic Johnson Sweet Spot Auto /10

09/10 Topps Jumbo box. This product is loaded with goodies.

Glad to see others mentioning it too...

2009-10 Bowman 48

I've not really enjoyed opening my other boxes, since they all resulted in a hugely disappointing return.

I'll echo the Bowman '48 thoughts. Stuff was fun to open and loaded with nice autographs! I miss Bazooka, too...couldn't beat that stuff.

If you say pulling a Jordan auto, then I have to go with 2002 - 2003 Upper Deck. I pulled a freaking Jordan auto from a regular box of Upper Deck!!!!!!!!! That was fun and beyond.

I didn't have enough money to bust box(es) back in the 90's when I was only a student, but if you ask me now, I would surely enjoy busting box(es) that give me chances to pull one of those SkyBox Autographics cards from 1996-97 to 1999-00 seasons (no rack packs though) and also early releases of SP Authentic.

I'll add in 09/10 Upper Deck, too...those were fun, especially with the hot boxes.

I would say for me are the late 90's box!
It gives a very good Nostalgia feeling into it!
The chase would be the great inserts that until now we do love, that's why the those fleer retro price box became overpriced!

And for now my favorite would be the Past and Present, just love the checklist of players
with a lot of legends in it!

I didn't open any boxes until 09/10 onwards but have tried most since then. I opened 09/10 Upper Deck 10 times and never got a hot box, so that wasn't exactly a winner for me, but I did love the insert chase

My favourite would probably be 09/10 Rookies & Stars. I had some pretty sweet pulls from that including a Griffin Patch/Auto /10, a Kobe Auto /50 from retail and a Bob Cousy Auto
