Default Looking to buy my first ever hobby box!

I have been a casual collector of hockey cards for a long time but never actually dropped the cash on a hobby box. In light of pulling two Game Jersey cards in retail packs of Series 1 and 2 today, I'm feeling the urge to finally break a box! I can get a hobby box of Series 2 on eBay for around $72 shipped, which I will probably go for, does anyone else have any suggestions for good boxes under $100? I collect game-used cards primarily and use the rookies I pull for trades.

If its this year...go for series 1 hockey...the better rookies are in there! The only good rookie in series 2 is Toews

I considered that, but I also like the idea of a Rookie Threads in every box too!

Inferno..if your looking to spend a hundred bucks you may want to check out Solts thread....especially since you've stated you like game-used jersey cards.

I saw that thread and sent him an email. He wanted to sell the whole lot at once and there were no big names or anything, and his post said most were duplicates anyway. I figured I'd drop about $75 on the Series 2 box and get the suspense of opening a box of my own! Thanks for the input though guys!

I think Hot Prospects 07-08 and Spx 07-08 would be awesome to open as your first hobby boxes as well...last I looked they were both under 100$...Spx might have went up but I havent looked yet

I agree. Series 1 has the deepest rookie lot since 05-06 Series 2 and it doesn't look like it was overprinted.

For $100, you could probably get a Kane, Price & Toews rookie materials & a box of Series 1 if you wanted to go that way. Not sure what Series 1 boxes are going for these days, but I've seen those jerseys end for $8-12 recently.
