Default Which of these boxes is best?

Just thinking of busting something, which of these products would you firstly recommend busting and secondly are the best value?

2012 Finest - $132
2102 Topps Jumbo - $134
2012 Inception - $97
2012 Platinum - $118
2012 Prime Sigs - $55

The descriptions all look appealing, mostly the Topps ones but I do like the RPAs from Prime Sigs.

What would you suggest?

Prime sig is so hit or miss, as is mostly anything from panini. At the price point, maybe look at strata or chrome.

At those prices, none of them, but Inception might be your best bet. Can't believe the topps jumbos are selling for that much.

Don't get any of those, all horrible boxes at those prices

The only thing you should even be giving any consideration at those prices is Inception, the others are literally advertising you being raped

I'm partial to the look of the platinum cards base and autos, but from what I have experienced Chrome has way more parallel hits. I have been wanting a case of finest, but I won't pay $134, maybe $100-$115. If I had to choose I'd say Chrome, and then Finest if you can get it cheaper than it is now at another location. Just out of curiosity what's the cost to ship to NZ?
