Default What's the Best Box of 2010-11 Hockey to Buy?

I'm looking to expand my eBay store and local show business into hockey. Where's a good place to start for 2010-11 sets? I want to buy a few boxes just to get some base singles, decent rookies, and a few autos up on my site.

The three I was looking at the most so far is 2010-11 SP Authentic, 2010-11 Upper Deck Black Diamond, and 2010-11 SP Game Used. Thoughts? Other good suggestions? Thanks a lot!

Don't know if it will help but we had a similar discussion on another thread. I myself am similar to you, and ordered a box of UD Artifacts. Check out the PIP thread for it too.

If you are looking to drive traffic to your site, why not start with one box of the Cup since that'll be the hot product next week and have the most searches for product? After that just go with UD Series 1 or SP Authentic for a filler and you'll be on your way.

Thanks guys. I'm thinking I'm going to start with SP Authentic, hit The Cup when it comes out in Sept., maybe add Certified and Ultimate Collection in the coming month.

Luxury Suite looks like a decent one too? True or False?

Very false. Brutal product with a huge price tag and very little return

I pulled a Taylor Hall 1 Color ARP and it only soled for $165. Crown Royale is a better buy IMO over Luxury Suite.

How Panini can make a lower end products ARP #'ed /99 in Crown Royale to a Mid-high end products ARP #'ed /199 boggles me.

I opened 5 Cases of Ultimate and it was a nice product but very hit or miss. I may be one of the few that made a profit on it.

I opened 4 cases of SP Authentic. Out the gate it was hot. Now would not be the time to buy it unless you can get a case for under $1k
