Default Input on what cases to buy

Going to buy a case or two of hockey cards and would like everyone and anyone that collects input on what is the better product to get. I am creating a poll asking what would be the best break with best value in it. I see a lot of cases that cost a pretty penny but take a huge it. Right now I was thinking about the cup and something like crown royale or dominion and prime. Anthology looks pretty good. So please help me out. I'm putting up nine options please vote and feel free to comment about them! Thank you so much and ill be sure to post the breaks when I get them! Thanks!

Buy cup and don't open.

Or buy anthology and open and half fun.

Most, prepare to lose your shirt.

I picked Rookie Anthology simply because for the price the number of hits and parallels can't be beat. Lots of different cards to look at and of course, the plus this year is the added Dominion cards for high end hits and hard-signed stuff to mix in with all the normal sticker stuff. I have experience with cases of Playbook, Crown Royale, and Dominion, but will say Crown stunk. If your silhouettes are not players you like, the rest will hurt. Playbook has a decent checklist of rookie and vet hits for the price, but you have to like booklet cards of course. Dominion is awesome at times, but is more expensive. I also picked Anthology because the Dominion hits are of the true 13/14 rookies like MacKinnon, Monahan, and Nichushkin.

As for the 12/13 stuff in your list, it's cheaper, but unless you are in the market for Jaden Schwartz or Chris Kreider, it will be bleak at times.

Above all, good luck and have fun with your cases.

chris_ac and I just split a 10 box case of ITG Game Used at its awesome new price;
ITG Game Used 10 box break coming soon...

We pulled four true 1/1s.

I look to be making my money back in 6-7 cards, keeping some nice PC cards, and had some extra cards to dole out to other members here. And my stash didn't even have the best case hit in it (that went to chris_ac).That to me is what a great case should look like.

The Cup always has the best return on value.

Prime or ITG ultimate both have some awesome subsets imo. I just bought one insane ITG ultimate box and got a Steve Yzerman hot pack. Good luck with whatever you end up purchasing.

Right now for the price i like
Fleer retro tons of hits and very fair priced product (like 450 last case i got )
for 36 autos and out of that you are going to get a few good hits
Dominion but 2 years ago edition seemed to be loaded up very well
and anthology is sweet
