Question Ok not geting a case of Contenders anymore. Help me pick between these two

Ok after see all the bad cases people have had with Contenders I have decided not to buy one. I think maybe one or two boxes but not a case. So I have decided I want to buy a case that has HOFERS to and not just Rookies. So I have decided between a case between Limited or a case of Crown. So I am torn between the two. So any help would be great as well as pros and cons on both. So let the feedback begain lol

If I remember correctly, Crown is full of an ungodly amount of redemptions. I think Limited was actually fairly good about getting live hits, but maybe I'm wrong.

Crown is redemption city and seems like HOFers and Vets would be much easier to hit in Limited. I don't think Limited is off MAPP yet so maybe wait for that then buy.

Wise choice regarding the Contenders, but do your self a favor and dont even bother with a single box of Contenders.

Well looks like I am leaning towards the Limited. Sounds like a better product and can't pass up the price of $1275

How about Topps Magic? The design is nice and you get 3 hits per box. If you are looking for a set to build, this might be a nice alternative.

Yeah I agree but looking for a product that has some nice Patches as well. Limited has shown some pretty sweet patches from what I have seen. Also not really looking for set building.

You can actually pick this up for a pretty cheap price right now, seems like I saw a case around 550 give or take.

SP Authentic can be had for just over 1200, decent value and a chance at some HOFers. I like the on-card autos as well.
