This one is simple.

There are none.

Singles are the way to go.

There were some gold Exquisite boxes that contained all 1/1's (football and basketball) and there were a couple of contests where the winner got to pick the cards to go in a dream box. I have seen them all on eBay once or twice...

Krup is right. Buying boxes is all about luck you win some you lose most.

I love gambling, which is why I rarely buy singles, and waste, yes waste, money on WAX.
I lose 90% of the time, just like you will.

Best box for $100 is probably Chrome because even if the hit sucks, you have a chance for some nice color refractors.

From the movies I've seen, her box has been well used...
