Default Panini Titanium or UD SP Game Used?

Going to pick up a case of one of these two April releases. The UD case is a little more expensive and has a few less hits (72 v. 80), but I feel like resale would be better. Although, the Panini release is new, which might drive demand...


Anyone have any thoughts or advice?

Two schools of thought here;

1) Why buy Panini at opening cost? Look at the drop in price in Dominion which has dropped all the way down to 250 a box. Wait two months, save 300 bucks.

2) One of these days, I just feel UD is going to slam the market with Gretzky or Orr just like they opened the floodgates on Jordan. Now that Howe is open season, Wayne and Bobby are their main chesspieces and I just have a feeling we'll see more of them real soon.

Yeah Titanium isn't going to compete with SPGU or even SPA imo. The rookies are the main thing to chase in Titanium from what I understand, and they're going to be rare. So I think the rookies will sell really well, especially low numbered ones. But outside of that, I don't think this pacific remake is gonna be close to anything UD.

Titanium is going to be another Panini dog. Grab the UD stuff.

Case of SPGU, wait on the Titanium to see how it does. It could either go the way of Crown Royale or of Luxury Suite.

I'd sure like to know how many autos are in a Titanium case considering they seem to have followed the 2001-02 Titanium model instead of the successful models of the other years.
