All are pretty rough. I would do momentum. Best chance to get top autos. 10 hits per box

If you wanna hit and flip, go with stuff like 2012 Topps or 2012 Topps Chrome. Just the Luck/RG3 Base rookies sell for more than many autos in those 3 sets. If you really wanna bust out of those 3, I prefer GS

While your at it, invest in some 'hooked on phonics'.

Chrome, last years Contenders, or absolute mem IMO.

I would assume you are trying to make as much back right? The low-end stuff is the best for that. High-end stuff is high risk. Low-end stuff brings a more sure ROI. If I had $200 ($50 more) I know what I would buy and I would 100% promise I'd make money back (hopefully this said product I am talking about is FS in 3 weeks). The down-fall is the time it takes but it will be a more sure thing.

Conventional wisdom says Contenders, but you can still get screwed. I'd go with something 2012, which knocks out Gold Standard. Momentum is likely going to be pretty brutal unless you happen to hit a Luck/RG3 or the rare veteran/hof auto. I'd take a chance on chrome again.

Nuccionio, what are you referring to? $200 would be fine if you think it will be 100% return!

I'm not telling you haha. I wanna buy it. But all I am saying is the low-risk stuff is better for ROI. Chrome is the best mid range product right now for ROI. It always is. Contenders is always a decent choice but the high-risk thing again. I like the sure thing

Its very unlikely that you will get close to 100% return, no matter what you break.

That's not exactly true haha. You just gotta search for the great deals. It's real easy to make 80% ROI at least (I assume that is close to 100%) on stuff. There are plenty of case breakers on here that make money busting every time.

I hope the two products I am looking at will be available in a few weeks. I'll have to prove this theory.

No, there isn't. If that was true, we would all be busting the same products.

Hope you aren't talking about Strata either.

Hence why people do? People bust Topps baseball for example all day long when it is released and make it work.

Of course not. This isn't stuff that you can just find either. No product is a sure thing, but there are ones that are as close as possible. Every time I spend the money trying to get a ROI, I get 80% ROI+. Obviously I don't always bust for ROI, sometimes I bust for fun, actually a lot. But if I am gonna spend $150+ i'll search for something with a good ROI.

Only way to maximize your potential is to buy a case or two and the initial price of a good product and bust it the day is comes out. Otherwise forget it.

Yep, that's the easiest way. And the more you buy, the better.

I appreciate all your guys help with this. I am looking for something fun for Christmas to break with my son and hopefully have some fun on ebay selling it off for ROI.

I do have 2 boxes of Strata coming (don't want to put all the $$$ out for a case yet). I am breaking a box of Chrome in about 10 minutes so maybe I will come back to that again.....we shall see!!!

Yeah, like user NeedChapmans did. He lost thousands. Their isn't much ROI breaking cards in general let's be honest here. While making 80% back is great. That's not a profit. Your doing it for fun, think of it as entertainment like a casino, sometimes you win, most times you lose.

I have to say that I loved breaking Inception this year. I bought one case ($800) and made a profit of $200 because I pulled a Luck 1/1 NFL Logo card. Overall, I bought two more cases and I made just over $1000 of that back, but, that is because of a couple Doug Martin sales the night he ran for 251 yards, an RG3 auto, and Russell Wilson was a hot seller at the beginning of the season. I added a lot of Coby Fleener, Dwayne Allen, and Andrew Luck to my PC, so I could have chipped away some more. An approximate $400-$500 loss for three cases worth of Inception. If I didn't hit the 1/1 Luck, the loss would have been a lot higher.
