Default Best Basketball Box To Get

I'm looking to get into breaking some basketball boxes. Which ones do you guys recommend? More of a hobby than profit, but I will sell/trade ones that I'm not attached to.

I like certified and studio nice looking design. If you want on card though classics and Contenders are the way to go. Hope this helps.

I was thinking this, but it seems like most of the 1/1's have been pulled. Are there still a lot of cards out there?

Contenders is another I was looking at.

I'm a Warriors fan, so I'm looking to land a nice Curry card.

I am pretty sure there is some stuff left out there. I mean,if I was in charge of these product,I would hold off a few boxes that has these big cards because if every great cards have been pulled,and there is still many boxes left,No one would buy any more and I think panini wouldn't do that. For example,IMO,they haven't release the white iPhone 4 because they said something about the white IP have had manufacturing problems,but think there just doing that so that more people would buy the black ones because If they only sell one,they'd lose money.

Absolute Basketball. I already got 3 boxes which came with some good hits and the design is not bad too. They also added the ball back into the cards which I think is pretty cool. There are nice looking patches and some chase cards to look out for. Auto logomans, autographed ball and a full size autographed Kobe jersey to name a few. Also, the prices are going down a bit for me to take another shot at it .

Court Kings looks really nice, imo. Prices were a bit high when it first came out regardless that it came with 4 hits. Problem with it was the high numbering of the auto rookies and it would have been nice if they had patch cards, but that's just me. Also, it would have been nice to see more on-card autos. Though, it had a couple of things that took my interest like the box topper autos, which were on-card, and the Kobe lithos. But that's about it. Idk, with the prices going down as well, I might pick-up another box just for the heck of it.

Hope this helps.

Which ones are you missing?

I broke a box, and its just been sitting. I should scan and sell some.

I don't remember everything off the top of my head, but I know I have a BJ Mullins (sp?) auto rookie and a Deron Williams auto /10. I can't remember the other rook though...

I like 2008 Topps Signature. 1 superstar auto per box so why not. Plus 7 other autos too.

The next product out is always the hottest in basketball, unfortunately. Rookies go nowhere but down unless they have a Durant-like breakout season. If you just want to collect, buy some 10-11 Prestige, sell off the hits you don't want, wait for the SPs to get announced, then sell those and put the set together.

National Treasure hands down. With the crop of RC's in this product these will be the ones to have. Griffin, Evans, Harden, Curry and others and the product is great and rivals exquisite easily? I think this will be the best product by far with out UD SP/Ultimate or Exquisite in the mix. I also think they are on par with the quality of the UD Exquisite. Sick RC Auto Patches!

Topps Jumba HTA is always fun to bust and keep.

Last Year SP Authentic.

In this year's product? The Last exquisite one, Panini Absolute is not bad and the upcoming HOF looks awesome

Looks like National Treasure is the fan favorite here. Any opinions on Crown Royal? I'm getting mixed reviews.

I love the half off retail packs of it at Target, 5 packs, 4 refractors, one was a Stuckey RC refractor, my lucky number as the #ing, and an orange rookie

my pick is NT, then absolute, timeless, limited follows. crown royale and court kings were scams to release crappy products and get $$$. i opened a box of crown royale the day it came out for $85 and got honestly less than $10 in return for all my 'hits'. court kings is awful unless you hit a kobe auto... jennings or curry autos from court kings dont sell for even $30. it's not simply that NT is the most expensive and therefore nicest, but the stuff they put in is actually legit and the resale value is high whereas court kings offer strictly jerseys and sticker autos while crown royale have on card autos for .99 and patches the size of my pinky's nail

I'd buy a box of Bowman 48. Guaranteed 3 autos in a box (which will only set you back about $60). They have a nice auto checklist including Larry Bird, Magic Johnson, Bill Russell, Dwight Howard, Chris Paul, Dwyane Wade, Jerry West, Derrick Rose, etc.

If you like Panini cards, I'd check out either Classics or Studio - both have nice card designs and on card autos.

Not all Studio autographs are on card (maybe rookies are?)
