Post Need help choosing case to buy.

I'm looking for some guidance on a case to buy. After looking at several different cases that are in my price range I have narrowed it down to:

All 2012
Topps Strata
Topps Platinum
Topps Chrome
Bowman Sterling (4-Box)


All seem to be in a similar price range give or take $100-$200. The main hits I am looking for are Wilson and Martin autos/patches. I would sleep soundly for the rest of my life if I could pull a Wilson auto with a low print run (here's for hoping).

Also, I'm only finding a couple of sites that are selling cases (could be because I don't know where to look). The one that is sticking out the most is: dacardworld.com

Is this a good place to purchase cards from, and are there any other sites that you can suggest that have cases of these that might be priced better? I realize that this forum is an extension of blowoutcards, and I have not seen in the rules whether it is prohibited to mention other sellers. If it is I am sincerely sorry.

Anyways, I am just trying to make a smart decision with my money seeing as this might be the last of hobby cards I will be able to afford this year. Any input would be much appreciated. Thank you for your time!

Buy the auto of the player you want and save $1000

Just off of your list... my vote would be CHROME CHROME CHROME. Only thing that sucks though is that a lot of R-Wilson cards are redemptions. I really had fun breaking that product even without monster cards.

Panini Prizm. That will dominate anything on the list

Unfortunately it's not that simple. I don't receive pleasure from that. It's only when I slide a card over and see Russell Wilson's beautifully manicured face and a 1/1 that my heart is content. I wish it wasn't so. But in all seriousness I have been eyeing his superfractor...

I'd go with Chrome from that list

Although if you're open to Panini products, Prizm and Contenders don't seem to be that bad (just a possibility)

Second suggestion for Prizm. Looks like I am zeroing in on Chrome or Prizm. Thank you!

I've seen, I meant to say I have been eyeing it in regards to the statement that I should just buy the card I want.

Gotcha. Thought you meant you were hoping to pull it!
