Default Which product has the best value for price?

I have opened boxes from many different products this year and i wanted your guys opinion on which product retains the best value for its price. In other words, which products gives the best cards compared to its price tag. So far, Ultimate has seemed to have great value even though it has a hefty price on it, but i havent broken any on my own(have participate in the group break). I did not really like the Upper Deck SP products this year. Rookie threads sucked and GU and Authentic werent as good as previous years. I liked Topps Echelon, they had some cool looking cards and the price was not to expensive. UD Black went crazy the first month, but has seemed to cool off. What are your opinions? please feel free to respond. Thanks

I would say Premier and you're right, Ultimate definitely. (I only crack BSKT though)

So far I like Ultimate and Premier. What about the Chronology NBA release. 1.5 Super A autos per case. Come on UD you gonna give me 1 jordan and a half of a Bird auto. I could just picture it the card is signed 'Larry'

Ultimate from the cases I have seen broke are carrying at least an average of 1.5 A levels per.

I like Ultimate and Black. I think the reg SP ones are nice with a clean look.

If you are going to break just a box or 2, I say go with Premier. A 10 box case typically has numerous "A" level autos, so your odds are pretty good. Plus, there are non "A" level cards that are very good as well.

If you are going for a case, I like Ultimate. I saw a few cases that turned out really bad in the first week. But everything since then has contained at least 1 "A" level.

Black is a very nice looking set. But opening a box is a lot like buying a lottery scratcher. Chances are you will not get anything that great. But I know some people that have incredible luck with Black.

This year I'd have to say Trademark Moves at it's current price is the best value.

Default I was going to say the exact same thing

I agree, 07-08 Topps Trademark moves gives you the most bang for your buck. Sometimes you might get a box only worth 25 bucks, but usually you are able to get some insanely nice cards out of just one box.
