Default What non sport case to break...

I've been thinking about passing on a case of Exquisite football and cracking some non-sport. Would like to get some input on which of the following would provide the best bang for the buck, best return with the possibility of actually keeping something at the same time.

1 x Star Wars 30th Anniversary
3 x Heroes Series 2
1.5 x Star Wars Galaxy 4

Thanks!

All those products are a bit dated, I'd look at the new James Bond coming out soon or Terminator Salvation cards. Collectors go nuts over James Bond autos, especially the Bond Girl autos

Out of the 3 listed I'd say SW Galaxy 4 as it is the newest release but SW 30th is good too, depending on the case price.

For upcoming sets I am liking how the new Bond is shaping up (2 autographs and 2 relic cards per box):

James Bond Archives Trading Cards - Rittenhouse Archives

I'm not a bond collector myself but I'll probably try a couple boxes and I'll definitely be getting an Olga Kurylenko autograph.

X-Men Wolverine, Conan the early movies and I know another Lost comes out but I don't know when. I also read that there is another Donruss Americana coming out if it didn't already. I also agree with the James Bond

I almost forgot the Dexter set by Breygent. This isn't a set to profit from but I love the show and will at least get the autographs, maybe even a master set.

You might also consider, and don't kill me for saying this, American Idol season 8 hobby boxes. There's an auto in each box of the top 12, and had you bought boxes a few seasons ago you could have been sitting on some Carrie Underwood autos. Is there another Carrie Underwood this year? I don't know, but collectors go crazy over those kids each week as they sing and it could prove to be a money maker at only $40ish a box.

I'll probably buy a couple boxes myself because that Alexis Grace is so cute! Not that I watch the show.. My wife does, and sometimes I sit there with her

I would vote on Star Wars Galaxy 4 as the case to break. I only busted 1/2 a case but I will probably make a small profit overall. The artist list is packed up and down it only takes a couple of nice sketches to put you up. Plus if you aren't talking rip and flip the sketches are nice(No Waterhouse or Woodside), plenty of parallels to chase, and the base set is very well done for the most part.
