Smile Best box to get?

I want one box. My LCS is usually comparable to blowout ( the fantastic store should branch into Assachusetts).

Where do i have the best odds of pulling a rg3 or luck auto?

Gridiron gear 110
Certified 100
Rookies and stars 85
Finest- 130

I think it's R & S. They are both short printed in Finest, so that's the least best place of those four choices. Then I'd go Certified, but I think it's going to drop in price once the pricing freeze is off.

Rookies & Stars or Gririron.

1) I've opened maybe 4 boxes of R&S. Best auto has probably been a Brocky O /49, but it's a solid price with decent odds. BO has it for 74ish.

2) Gridiron has 2 hot boxes per 8 box mini case, which give you nine hits. I think 3 out of 8 boxes have five hits. Might not be a popular as the others, but that's a lot of possible hits.

3) Finest is fun, but it's getting too pricey and you need to be damn lucky to hit those super SP'd Luck/Griffin autos. People have opened many cases without seeing either of the two. But hey...someone has to hit them. I opened a case and pulled a ridiculous Luck auto and two Tannehills. Odds are WAY against you, but it's a "fun" rip in bulk IMO.

4) Certified guarantees "at least one auto." Checklist is painful and you might only hit one garbage auto. At least go for a box that'll guarantee two garbage autos. My two packs were painful and I somehow smudged one of the junk pulls in 0.4 seconds. The mirrored design seems prone to that unless you're insanely delicate.

I would look at your chances in this order going from greatest odd's to hardest. I think if your going to spend $100-$140 with tax on a box, you might as well just purchase either an RGIII or LUCK auto for that price.

Certified, R & S or Gridiron are all solid right now. None of the big guys are SP'd and you get a shot at Alfred Morris autos for a nice bonus, which Topps has zero of.
